Are you a late-night snacker? Well, the KWC Eve Faucet from Clarke Corporation has you covered. Nine LEDs outline the faucet, allowing you to use it in the darkest of situations or just as a handy night light.

The iHome IH36W is a great way to play music from your iPod in the kitchen. Also included is an FM receiver, digital clock with alarm, cooking timer, and a remote. The retractable iPod dock stows away when not in use.

This is the perfect gadget for those who have had their ice cream eaten by a roommate or nosy guest. The Pint Lock will not only deter unwanted indulgers, but it will also make them question their friendship with someone who would put a lock on an ice cream container.

Now this could come in handy--the SensorfreshQ will let you know if you should be eating that shady meat lying around the house. Using its "nose," the SensorfreshQ can detect the amount of bacterial activity on any uncooked piece of meat or poultry.

I knew my refrigerator was missing something. The LSC27991 from LG comes with an HD-ready LCD TV on one side and a weather-and-information center on the other. All this can be yours for under $4,000.

The Boston Acoustics MicroSystem CD is a perfect fit for any kitchen. Quite possibly the best-sounding tabletop CD player we've heard, the Microsystem CD will also play MP3 CDs.
