Switchit French Press Stirrer & Timer

What's to love: Helps make the perfect cup of French press coffee.

What does it do: Use the stirrer/scraper -- which is made of silicone -- to move and agitate coffee grounds before pressing. A built in timer reminds the user with a beep to stir at one-minute in. At four minutes -- the timer lets the user know the coffee is ready. Lighted numbers show how much time is left. The Switchit is easy to clean and can be used to scrape the spent grounds out of the press. The device is made by Chef'n and sells for $14.99. More information at
