erlenmeyer-flask-salt-and-pepper

I've heard the expression that baking is science and cooking is an art (meaning that baking requires more precise measurements, temperatures, and times, while cooking is a bit more forgiving), but as any chemist knows, it's all just chemistry.  This cute salt and pepper set lends an air of the chemistry lab to your kitchen.

butter-crocks

It seems many people are looking for the perfect method for buttering up their toasts and bagels.  Julie was disappointed with the knife that promised to use the heat of her hand to make butter spreadable that she reviewed yesterday.  As Julie mentioned, butter can actually be left out on the counter without refrigeration, but [...]

I love ice cream and I love butter, but what I don’t love is having to wait for them to soften and melt so that I can scoop and spread them. Is there a solution other than just waiting? Maybe… The self-warming ScoopTHAT and SpreadTHAT ice scream scoop and butter knife claim to solve these [...]

Or at least that is what the SpreadTHAT! Heated Butter Knife claims to be able to do. The unique thing about this hi-tech kitchen gadget is that it doesn't use any electricity to warm the knife. It uses a non-toxic titanium coating to conduct the heat from your hand down to the blade, allowing you to [...]

Earlier this year, we told you about a wood-fired pizza oven for your backyard that promised to make great pizza but cost $2700.  You like pizza, but you don't have that kind of cash to dedicate to a large piece of equipment that can only make pizzas, you say?  What about a piece of equipment that [...]

In my household, I'm usually the one who makes dinner every night because I get off work first. I like to cook, but it cuts into my Gadgeteer work time if I am constantly running up and down the stairs to check the temperature of something that I'm baking in the oven. I've always wanted [...]

I am not a cook, chef, or even a glorified food preparer.  In fact, I view cooking as nothing more than a DIY project with heat and chemistry.  I'd like to also point out that I failed chemistry numerous times in school.  Along comes the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven.  Pressure oven?  OK, you have my [...]
