Here in sunny Florida, we’ve been experiencing spring/summer weather since mid January. It’s 92 degrees at 11:00 am, as I type this.

Welcome to the 2023 Easter Gift Ideas and Buying Guide!

“AirHood™ was designed by the French designer Maxime Augay when he was in college. Like many great innovations, this came from a personal need because Maxime found his own extractor hood at home difficult to clean – and frankly, not up to his own aesthetic tastes. After having won the imm Cologne 2019’s “Pure Talent Contest – Living Kitchen Selection” with his design concept, he decided to bring the AirHood™ to reality. He has partnered up with Smart Product Concepts (SPC), a veteran with over 20 years of experience in kitchen appliances manufacturing, to ensure the concept is brought to life successfully.
The AirHood™ has a unique value proposition that makes it a perfect match for individuals all over the world. Its development and design history differ significantly from typical processes within Smart Product Concepts (SPC), which is primarily a company focused on manufacturing within the B2B space. As such, Maxime and SPC decided to launch the AirHood™ through crowdfunding on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, so that we can rely on the foodies as well as tech- and design-lovers of the world to bring AirHood™ to life.
Now, The AirHood™ is launching its second batch on pre order.
Smart Product Concepts was established over twenty years ago. They have continued to design products that revolutionize the cooking experience for people around the world.
Headquartered in Hong Kong and with state-of-the-art facilities on the Chinese mainland, we continue to develop long-term partnerships with our clients so they can expand their portfolios, build new revenue streams, capture new audiences, get products to market fast, and deliver better customer experiences.”

“Great tasting chocolate without the extra sugar.
Delicious chocolate with zero added sugar—made naturally sweet with monk fruit, our not-so-secret ingredient, without any calories or aftertaste.
We started Mode after our love affair with chocolate turned into a troublesome relationship with food. Too much sugar was taking a toll on our health and cutting it out only made us crave it more. So, we cleared off our kitchen island and began experimenting. Days turned into weeks and weeks into years, when we finally created a delicious chocolate bar—combining just a few ingredients you can actually pronounce, without all the sugar.
We believe that guilt, permission and shame shouldn’t drive our decisions around food, and the less we have to think about food, the easier it will be to live our lives. Mode exists to give you an easier option to enjoy chocolate, however it fits into your life.
That’s what Mode is all about, just great tasting chocolate without the extra sugar.”
