UV knife block eradicates germs so you don't have to

If you're a total germophobe, you probably wash your knives under scalding hot water every time they even get near raw chicken. You don't want to get stuck with any nasty salmonella, after all. But what if you're both a germophobe and cripplingly lazy? Well, that's where the germ-eliminating knife block comes in.

Simply store your knives in this block and they'll be blasted with safe UV-C light, the same light used to sterilize instruments in hospitals. And if it's good enough for hospitals, it's good enough for you. It's available now for $40.
