This steam releaser called ‘Flower Power’ is something that you can wedge between the edge of a pot as your food cooks.

As the steam is let out of the gap, the flower petals are designed to catch some of that steam and if the steam is strong enough, will make the petals spin around like a pinwheel. It also provides a rough indicator of the temperature of the food that is cooking in the pot, so that you’ll notice as the the flower spins.

A cute kitchen gadget useful for cooking soups and stocks.

The Flower Power steam releaser retails for $15.99 from Animi Causa.
