We're thinking of hiring house elves to do the clean-up after our cooking escapades, but they're a bit harder to track down than we imagined, so instead we're turning to items like the Hamilton Beach Thermal Cooler Blender ($18). A 48 oz thermal cooler allows you to blend and go while keeping your drinks cold up to 8 hours. An easy-pour spout and easy to carry handle might make keeping drinks in here a short-lived venture. With not a thing to wash, except a cooler to throw in the dish-washer - we'll take two!
