What’s Hot: Light Touch


Convenience is a big deal in a lot of categories, but one thing that can be said of housewares is that, almost from the start, making household tasks a little easier has been a major selling point. Nine Stars USA’s infrared trash can line (pictured), ensures that a handful of trash doesn’t turn into a cumbersome disposal incident. Sizes range from 1.3 gallons to 21 gallons. And it’s a godsend to germaphobes as they never have to touch the trash can lid. MSRPs range from $45.95 to $210.95.

Just this spring, Daka expanded its One Touch line from the signature can opener to include the Wine HK Houseware bottle opener, jar opener, salt and pepper mill, Magic Marinator and nutcracker, putting several sometimes-difficult household tasks in reach of people with reduced strength or hand motion.
