SteakAger Pro 15 beef dry ager review

REVIEW – If you’ve ever eaten at a high-end steakhouse, one of the things they regularly tout is dry-aged beef.  Dry-aging is a process to improve the quality of beef.  It takes a long time and a serious space commitment in a refrigerator, and therefore, costs more.  That’s why you typically only see it at …

ChefWave InterMix immersion blender review – the Swiss army knife of immersion blenders

REVIEW – If you’ve never used an immersion blender, you don’t know what you’re missing.  Being able to blend up a smoothie in the glass, or pulverize potatoes right in the pot without dirtying up another bowl can be a time-saver.  But, immersion blenders are kind of a one-trick pony.  ChefWave thinks they should be …

Millo Smart Cordless Blender review

REVIEW – When it comes to my kitchen countertops. I like them to be clutter-free. That includes appliances and their cords. I keep the toaster in the cabinet along with other appliances like the Cuisinart GR-5B Series Griddler FIVE tabletop grill and panini press that I reviewed. I do have the Chefwave Milkmade non-dairy milk …

PantryChic stores your dry goods and perfectly measures them when it’s time to bake

NEWS – I enjoy making my own bread so I know what ingredients are in it. But one thing I don’t like is having a bunch of half empty bags of flour, sugar, etc shoved willy nilly in the top shelf of my cabinet. First world problem? You betcha. Is there a better way? That’s …

Grand Fusion no-leak, non-stick silicone baking mat review – all the yum, none of the yuck

REVIEW – What’s the worst part of baking messy things?  The cleanup, of course.  Silicone baking sheets can minimize the mess, but since they’re flat, the goo can still leak and bake onto your pan. Grand Fusion Housewares, a maker of all kinds of home goods, introduced a twist on the silicone baking sheet. Let’s …

Dyson Humdinger handheld vacuum review

REVIEW – I may have too many vacuum cleaners. There’s one for the upstairs, another for downstairs, and a few handheld units around the house. I wondered if the new Dyson Humdinger would be a handheld vacuum to rule them all? What is it? The Dyson Humdinger is billed as the most powerful, lightweight handheld …

ThermoWorks Thermapen ONE thermometer review

REVIEW – The ThermoWorks Thermapen ONE is a food thermometer and whether you’re a multi-Michelin star chef or a weekend grillmaster, food safety is paramount. I’ve been married to “Public Health” for the better part of a decade and I’m pretty sure the safe temperature for chicken was in our wedding vows ( 165 degrees Fahrenheit …

ChefsTemp Finaltouch X10 cooking thermometer review

REVIEW:  What does the ChefsTemp Finaltouch X10 do that other instant-read thermometers don’t do? There is something, and it’s pretty cool. Righties and lefties (hands, and politics) should appreciate the feature. But does it do its main thing well?  What is it The ChefsTemp Finaltouch X10 is a battery powered, instant-read, probe type cooking thermometer. …

The Tetra Countertop Dishwasher is a game-changer for your kitchen

NEWS – I may be the last person on the planet who doesn’t own a dishwasher. One of the main reasons I don’t is size. Typical under-the-counter dishwashers take up a lot of space that I don’t have. I have seen countertop models, but they usually need funky water hookups to work. Recently I came …

Whisk Wiper is the kitchen multi-tool that you didn’t know you needed until now

NEWS – A whisk is a common kitchen tool for avid bakers and cooks. This tool makes mixing liquids easy, but depending on the thickness of the liquid or batter that you’re mixing, you may end up losing some of the mix when it clings to the whisk’s metal loops. That’s where the Whisk Wiper …

NuWave Brio 15.5QT Air Fryer Review

NuWave Brio 15.5QT

REVIEW – These things come in waves.  OK, that’s my one dad joke per review.  Seriously, though, we tend to get a lot of similar products to review simultaneously.  Sometimes they are variants of robot vacuums, and on other days it is a collection of power distribution blocks.  The flavor of the day today is the …
