Swanky Scales

Typhoon vintage scale

There's a fine line between kitsch and class when it comes to "retro" kitchen supplies. Thankfully, Typhoon's vintage scales, which have the smooth, curved lines reminiscent of an old-fashioned radio, fall into the latter category. Made of powder-coated steel, the scales feature a precision weighing mechanism and a pear-shaped stainless steel bowl for ease of pouring. $40 in blue, pink, cream, and green at Typhoon.

Even if you haven’t taken a cross-country fast food odyssey or eaten out with friends who pack their own gourmet salt, you can show your Frank Bruni spirit with an "I am Frank Bruni" t-shirt, designed by tastingmenu.com. If you’d rather not wear your statement like a foodie superhero, you can order it on a messenger bag instead.
