Campfire Snacks with Coleman’s Otsumami Maker
Coleman is an American brand, but you won’t find this in the states. The compact Otsumami Maker helps take your camping snacks beyond trail mix and smores. Otsumami is a Japanese word often translated to snack, but it can include everything from peanuts to dried fish to seaweed tempura. This product is perfect for making takoyaki, octopus balls, without needing to haul around a huge pan. The non-stick surface makes it easy to clean and ready to use for the next meal.
Any meal anywhere with BRUNO’s Compact Hot Plate
You might not always be near a stove, but you can have the next best thing thanks to BRUNO. The Compact Hot Plate series lets you diversify your meals without taking up a lot of space. It comes not only with a flat plan suitable for any type of cooking, but also a small takoyaki pan. The easy to understand adjustable settings make it a perfect buy for those who have never bought portable cookware before. For those looking for something a bit larger, BRUNO also sells a Grande Size version aimed at making meals for multiple people.
Mix it Up with Fujisho’s Funazuki Maker

Now making batter for pancakes or okonomiyaki is easier than ever! Just throw the ingredients into the container, then use the built-in whisk to make smooth and creamy batter. It’s easy to store and easy to pour thanks to the adjustable handle. Just pour your mix onto a hot plate or takoyaki pan and enjoy!
Reinvent Waffles with D-STYLIST’s Waffle Dog Maker
Waffles have a tried and true shape, but sometimes you have to go beyond expectations and see what you can find. Someone did so and created the Waffle Dog Maker, a strange hybrid between a typical waffle maker and hotplate grill. The Waffle Dog Maker lets you cook six at a time, and imprints the classic waffle pattern on whatever you cook. There are many creative renditions of the waffle dog. Some are just a waffle on a stick, while others include cream and yes, even hot dogs. Let your imagination run wild with this fun item!
Make Classic Japanese Snacks with D-STYLIST’s Taiyaki Maker
D-STYLIST pops up again this week, featuring the portable Taiyaki Maker. The fish-shaped taiyaki is a popular traditional snack in Japan. While a red bean filling is the most common, there are countless other variations. Add in your favorite filling, and after three minutes you will have a piping hot snack. The handle makes it easy to carry around and take your taiyaki-making skills on the go. If you are looking for something even more compact, BlueBowl has a very simple device that lets you make two snacks in snap.
