  • Patent number: 5579915
    Abstract: A container for storing bags for re-use includes a substantially flat rear wall that extends in a lengthwise direction and can be mounted on a supporting surface by, for example, adhesive tape or screws. A pair of opposing side wall portions are joined with the rear wall, extend in the lengthwise direction, and have inward extending, opposing inner edges opposite the rear wall. A bottom portion is joined to the rear wall and to each of the side walls. The rear wall, the side walls, and the bottom portion define between them a convex interior of the container. Bags can be inserted into the interior of container through a top opening. A slit that is at least as wide as a predetermined minimum user wrist width extends lengthwise between the inner edges of the side walls over substantially the entire length of the container and into the interior of the container.

  • Patent number: 5386910
    Abstract: A container for plastic bags has a mainly flat rear mounting portion for attachment to a supporting surface, two opposing, partially curved side walls, and a bottom portion. The top of the container is open. A slit extends vertically between the side walls, which extend toward each other opposite the mounting portion. A user can insert bags into the container through the open top and press them down to the bottom of the container. The user's wrist thereby fits in the slit between the side walls. Bags can be removed from the container by pulling them out through the slit.

  • Patent number: 5255439
    Abstract: A spaghetti tool has a shaft that has a grippable portion and a base portion, which is located at a first end the shaft and from which protruding elements extend. In one embodiment, the shaft forms a substantially semi-cylindrical channel into which uncooked spaghetti can be laid. Markings on the inner wall of the shaft, corresponding to the height to which the uncooked spaghetti reaches in the channel, indicate the amount of spaghetti so that the correct amount of uncooked spaghetti can be measured out to yield a desired amount of cooked spaghetti. The markings can be letters or numbers to indicate either the number of portions or a numerical quantity corresponding, for example, to spaghetti weight. In another embodiment, the protruding elements are of substantially constant length and are arranged in parallel rows and/or columns with predetermined row/column separations.
