I've got a ton of rare earth magnets that I pulled from a bunch of old server hard drives, and if I go to Lowes and pick up a dozen or so Large Stainless Steel Nuts (should have a slightly higher iron content then medical stainless) I could integrate the magnets into a coaster that will hold the Nuts from the freezer to the bottom of the glass, and since they are Stainless they will have the inherited anti-bacterial properties as well as be resistant to absorbing odor...

Dang, the work day won't end quick enough for me to put this one to trial...

...And if it doesn't work, I can still use the nuts in other projects around the house...

UPDATE: Picked up 5 SS Nuts from Lowes during lunch, and while they do have some magnetic properties, it might not be strong enough for the magnates I have. Won't know that until I get off work...



Ps: I forgot to mention that magnets will change the flavor of beverages, liquor/wine/coffee in particular. So be careful with what or how intense of a magnet you introduce to your beverage. #tinkeron

No. Short of being dropped on to. Thrown at. Or other.

Tilt was designed to be glass friendly. They're hand polished stainless steel and I have yet to see them mar or scratch any of my glasses. Further, the included hook, will help ensure safe entry and removal from your beverage, guacomole, cevichè, or etc.

I designed tilt as a response to some other products that were popular for whisky yet completely counterintuitive and made of a material that would scratch glass and have flavor memory.

I hope you're not retouching the pics. That would just be... well... I guess it wouldn't be anything bad. Just a bit anticlimactic.

I asked photography but they refuse to disclose their magic.

PS: I'll see what I can do.

I have tried photographing these darn things so many times. They're a nightmare. But retouch is evident in the black reflection on right side of ball, and bottom shadow is a bit jagged. The main hot-spot probably fixed with radial gradient and Was feathered in with kungfu skills. And they got real clever with the white reflectors and hiding in the cracks. Kudos to the woot photo crew, they got the samples on Monday.

Yeah, after posting, I zoomed in on the photos and sort of figured the camera was hiding in the shadow just outside the lightbox - the gap there is very strategifically placed.

And thanks to.. well, whoever it was who posted the link to the nekkid dude reflected in the teapot. Fortunately, I already ate lunch today.

I like this guy. He's making a strong go of it as a designer/manufacturer. and he's funny (behind the scenes as well).

Expect to see more from his collection here on wine.woot.

I say welcome !

I also need to make clear to you all, that we have 2 different packaging styles of Tilt. This deal is for 2 of our Tilt Singles, which come with a storage bag and plastic retrieval hook/ garnishing stick.
http://soireehome.com/product/tilt/

Please do not confuse this with the Tilt twin which has metal hooks and rubber stands. Some of the early wooters may have crossed this connection when referencing amazon.com.

happy wooting

What is the Recovery time? I would probably want a minimum of 4, but need to know how long they need to chill (at 20 deg F) before they're ready.

The Tilt actually gets colder the longer it is in the glass and beat whiskey stones and ice!

I use em' and they have become another set of balls I can't live without.

I don't think I can safely buy these without being hated by everyone I know. I would end up doing this every time:

I just received my order, and there's only one Tilt in the box. Isn't the woot for a pair of spheres?

Ruh-roh. Yes, the sale was for two. Email support@woot.com so they can look into this.

UPDATE: WD has checked and indeed, only singles were sent. They are scurrying to ship the remainder of your order by early this week.

Sorry for the problem.

They're on their way to you already. If you check STUFF YOU BOUGHT, you should see a second tracking number there. An email should have gone out with it but I can't verify that. Check your spam.
