Zoku does take two

The Zoku Duo Quick Pop Maker freezes two pops at a time. Capable of making frozen treats right on the countertop, the gadget is kid-friendly.

Not everybody has 2.3 kids (or whatever the national average is nowadays). While this probably isn't a very shocking revelation, the fact remains that many appliances and gadgets are designed for larger households. This isn't necessarily a bad thing; more is usually better, right? Except sometimes there can be too much of a good thing. Any parent of a sugar-fueled tribe would most likely agree.

More than just a way of limiting sugar consumption (although it does have that going for it too), the Zoku Duo Quick Pop Maker is perfect for those with 2.0 kids. A smaller version of the company's popular three-pop model, the Zoku Duo is designed for two-at-a-time pop-making. In as little as 7 minutes, two 2-ounce frozen treats can be made--customizable exactly to Mom and Pop's specifications.

Housed inside the base unit, a proprietary solution interacts with the nonstick cast aluminum molds. Keep the base in the freezer, and when it's time for some freshly made frozen pops, just fill as desired. The gadget is capable of making up to six pops before it needs to be refrozen. While the kids are enjoying the first two frozen treats, the next batch could be getting ready. For the sake of peace, just be sure to pick up the larger model if you have more than two kids.
