axe-pizza-cutter

If you're the sort who likes to chop through a pizza with a macho tool, or you're a Monty Python fan, you'll need the Axe Pizza Cutter.  It has a rolling blade like a standard pizza cutter, but it ups the macho factor with the wooden handle and the axe-blade surround for the stainless cutting [...]

ifork

Wasn't there a law passed several years ago banning the practice of adding an "i" in front of a product name just to sound techy and hip? Probably not, but there should be, call your congressman now. Anyway, the iFork (just saying the name makes me roll my eyes because it has nothing to do [...]

stainless-steel-bacon-grilling-rack

With the Stainless Steel Bacon Grilling Rack, you can cook some crispy bacon for your burgers right on the grill.  The rack is made of 430 stainless steel and measures 4.88" x 10.79" x 5.63".  It's big enough to hold 4-6 slices of bacon (you may need a couple if everyone wants bacon), and it cooks the [...]

cooks-innovations-buttermill-1

Grilled cheese sandwiches and buttered toast are two of my favorites. But buttering the bread when the butter has been taken straight from the refrigerator can be challenging because cold butter doesn't spread very easily. Taking the butter out ahead of time to soften is the easiest way to solve the problem, but for those times when you don't [...]

dragon-cake-pan-thinkgeek

While not an electronic device, this kitchen item will appeal to the dragon-loving gadgeteers.  The Dragon Cake Pan holds just a little less than 2 boxes of cake mix or a bundt cake mix.  It's molded to look like a scaly dragon curled around three eggs.  The pan is made of heavy aluminum alloy, is [...]

overlord-cookbook

Earlier this week one of my friends from work stopped me at the water dispenser to tell me that he had something to show me. A few minutes later he handed me his copy of the Kitchen Overlord Illustrated Geek Cookbook by Chris-Rachael Oseland. This hard cover cookbook reads like a comic book with recipes [...]

BBQ Dragon review

BBQ-Dragon-Main

To me, nothing is better than freshly grilled meat and veggies at home during the warm (and cold) months. My boyfriend and I struggle to get our barbecue coals hot quickly using various tools, and have to wait well over 45 minutes for the coals to be ready.  I recently got the chance to review the BBQ [...]

maverick-chef-tunes-thermometer

If you have a tiny kitchen like mine, every item on the countertop has to have earned its place there.  The Maverick Chef Tunes Bluetooth Speaker and Roasting Thermometer does quadruple duty, so it would be worthy of the 12" x 2.5"  x 3.5" of counter it would require.  The Chef Tunes is a Bluetooth [...]

If you like to cook, you know that measuring ingredients is one of the important parts of guaranteeing good results. No one wants to eat something that is too salty, too sweet or too bleh. That's why good cooks use measuring spoons. The only downside to using measuring spoons is that you need a knife [...]

savel

It goes without saying, but I'm saying it anyway, that I love gadgets. I even love gadgets that I'd never buy and that have been designed to fix a problem that is best fixed with a solution that is much less expensive. Today's example is the Savel by Dreamfarm. What we have here is a colorful [...]

rollie_egg_cooker_kalorik

In a carnival world where just about everything from chicken to butter can be eaten "on a stick", it was only a matter of time before the fad made its way to your kitchen.  Now I'm not particularly talented at making eggs either, although rarely have I faced the issues plaguing these poor people.  However, who [...]

thinkgeek-chemistry-spice-rack

I have a soft spot for all the lab glassware-styled barware that ThinkGeek has offered in the past.  (My beakers and flasks shot glasses are decorating my desk right now.)  Their new Chemist's Spice Rack is calling my name.  It would look great in my kitchen with its dark wood cabinets and black countertop that [...]
