The Bin 8 Multipurpose Kitchen Tool Kit – Organization in a Bottle

by Julie

Do most of us have a drawer (or two) in out kitchens that are full of kitchen gadgets and gizmos? Is that drawer usually a huge mess that we find ourselves having to paw through every time we need something like the cheese grater, and at the same time promising, under our breath, that tomorrow we’re going to get organized? I mean, I’d like to think that it’s not just me!

Breakfast, the most important meal of the day. That’s what they say anyway. I guess I’ve just never beed a fan of eggs, pancakes or oatmeal. Bacon is of course, a whole other story, which we will cover some other day. My family however, is hugely excited by breakfast of any kind, especially eggs. I scramble them, hard boil them, sunny side up, down, and poached. You think they’d be bored by now? Let’s have a little fun with our eggs, shall we?

SteakChamp Thermometer – Get your Steak Done Right!

by Julie

Unknown

I don’t know what it is about me, but I am certified as barbecue-challenged. I can cook like a wannabe gourmet, but when it comes to the grill, I just can’t seem to get it right. It would be nice to be able to grab those uber-expensive cuts of steak off the coals in their intended state of “doneness” But they’re always over cooked, or bleeding. Why can’t I get it right?

The Bison Airlighter is a portable fuel-efficient blowtorch

by Caitlyn

Bison Airlighter

There’s nothing quite like food cooked on the grill when it’s nice out. Maybe it has better memories attached to it, maybe it’s the flavor, or it could be the fact that you get to play with fire. Heating coals or wood can take a little time to start up, and using a bunch of butane can change the flavor of what you cook over the flames.

Magnetic Measuring Spoons – You’ll be Stuck on Them

by Julie

I don’t know anyone that has a neat and tidy utensil drawer. Okay, maybe my mom, but thats a whole other story. I constantly find myself digging through a pile of (mostly unused) cooking junk. Why do I have to wade through egg slicers, strawberry hullers, and candy thermometers to get to the only stuff I actually do use… like my measuring spoons?

BerryBreeze – Keeping it Fresh

by Julie

If I had to pick the place where I waste the most money, it would have to be inside my fridge, I buy fresh fruits and veggies, in order to eat healthy, but by the time I get around to preparing them, they have often turned to mush. I feel guilty wasting food, I really have to start eating the vegetables first, and THEN the Twinkies, but until then, check this out…

Rapid Heating Wood Burning Pizza Oven makes outdoor picnics fun

by Edwin

rapid-wood-fire-pizza-ovenI don’t know about you, but I for one absolutely love to have my food piping hot. As in really, really hot, fresh out of the oven or the wok, depending on which particular cuisine that you are fond of. Picnics can be fun, especially when the weather is absolutely beautiful and you have prepared a fair bit of food to share with your loved one(s). The thing is, the food that you bring to picnics are more often than not no longer fresh as though it was just fixed or cooked in the kitchen, so cold sandwiches and the ilk tend to be the food of choice for many. What if I were to tell you that it is possible to bake your own pizza in the woods?

This is what the $2,700 Rapid Heating Wood Burning Pizza Oven is all about. Handcrafted in Marche, Italy, the Rapid Heating Wood Burning Pizza Oven is an outdoor wood-burning oven which can be ready to cook in a matter of just 15 minutes. It will be different from other typical wood burning ovens which require hours of preheating, as this superior oven’s whole cooking chamber has been insulated with basalt, which is a dense, volcanic rock that retains 10 times additional heat compared to the clay or brick that is used in traditional ovens. The oven itself will heat up to 800° F while the domed cooking chamber will result in a natural convection which circulates heat evenly, so that one can cook Neapolitan-style pizza in a matter of three minutes. Now this is pretty neat, don’t you think so?

Ball FreshTech Automatic Home Canner – Awesome Sauce!

by Julie

autoCanner

I’d really like to think of myself as a domestic goddess, effortlessly creating fabulous meals, while wearing a dress, complete with apron and pearls. It would be wonderful if my house was always well ordered and tidy, and that I had time for things like home canning. I have to admit I carved out some time to try it once. Only once… it was simply too difficult, too time consuming and, I was left worried that perhaps I hadn’t done it correctly, and would end up poisoning my family.
