*...Can this be used against summoned outsiders? Aren't they usually set free when "slain" or reduced to 0 hit points? What if an outsider is already under the effects of a binding spell or planar ally spell? Does this bottle override that? It seems kind of cheap (6,000 gp) for what it can do. But I don't know. Maybe I'm not seeing this thing clearly.

*...I think it's a 100% heal for my 16HD summoned outsider for just 6K. Vote to Reject.

*...No save? No thank you. Vote to Reject.

You bring up a good point I hadn't thought of with the summoned outsider issue. I can see how the item could be abusive if used to heal your own summoned buddy. However, I don't understand the autoreject because there is no save allowed to trap a 0 HP outsider. I figured reducing it to zero would be enough.

In any case, thanks for the comments. I'll try to take into account unorthodox uses of my items and consider them from every angle next year.

Binding Bottle
Aura strong conjuration; CL 15th
Slot --; Price 6000 gp; Weight 1 lb.
A binding bottle is a magical container crafted to resemble a clay pot, bronze lamp, or other small unassuming vessel. When an outsider with no more than 18 HD is reduced to 0 hit points or fewer within 30 feet of the bottle’s holder, she may uncork the bottle as an immediate action, trapping the creature inside (no save). The holder may attempt to compel the trapped creature to perform a service (as greater planar binding) in exchange for its release, with a +2 circumstance bonus to the Charisma check.
The trapped creature can sense and communicate telepathically with creatures within one mile of the bottle. Once per day, it may target the holder of the bottle with a spell or spell-like ability that affects a single target. If the bottle is opened or destroyed, the creature immediately appears within 30 feet at full hit points. Opening the bottle to release a creature is a standard action. A binding bottle can hold only one creature and shatters once the creature is released. It has AC 13, 10 hit points, hardness 5, and a break DC of 25.

Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, greater planar binding, Cost 3000 gp

So far, my votes go to:

Matthew McGee's Astrumal
Benjamin Bruck's Churjiir

The jury's still out on how I'll allocate the rest.
