Gorenje iChef oven with touchscreen

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on January 23rd, 2011

Gorenje’s iChef oven sports some finger-friendly controls and it’s more than just time and temperature. It has sixty-five preset dishes it can cook automatically, 150 slots for you to program your own, and you can even bake in three separate stages for those who actually know how to cook.

The touchscreen is filled with pictures of food to make it even easier. The oven hits Europe this spring for a crazy amount of money that neither you or I can afford.

Pizza Pi Cutter

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on December 9th, 2010

Nerds love Pizza. They also love Pi and aren’t afraid to rattle off every digit of it, even though all you hear is “3.14-oh-my-god-shut-the-hell-up-you-nerd-bastard”. Anyhow, the next time you slice your pizza, you might want to use the Pizza Pi Cutter.

It’s made out of plastic with stainless steel blades and it’s shaped like the classic Pi symbol. It would be perfect if it only cost $3.14, but it’s $17.99. The dual blades will cut every slice perfectly, the way you want.

Combi Chef 6 microwave with USB port

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on April 14th, 2010

Looking for something new in a microwave? Well, these combi-ovens are pretty popular in Europe, because they are a bit more versatile and they look good. They offer up a USB port and menu-creating software.

The kitchen will never be the same now that you can program the mode and time of cooking for your favorite meals and store them on a USB drive. But what we really want to know is, will it charge our gadgets or not?

Space Invaders Salt and Pepper shakers

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on March 31st, 2010

Those aliens from Space Invaders have now set their sights on seasoning food at the dinner table. Probably because food doesn’t shoot back like we do.

Spice invaders if you will. Too bad they are not for sale yet. As soon as they become available, I’m buying like fifty of these and lining them all up on the table so I can play a 3D game. I’ll shoot them one at a time and watch the salt and pepper spray out of their alien bodies.

The Printer Toaster drops it like it’s hot

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on December 8th, 2009

The Printer Toaster drops it like it's hotThis is a neat toaster design that mimics an inkjet printer. Sure, it doesn’t print on the butter, but what can you do? Still, we love the design. And we aren’t the only ones. Othmar Mühlebach’s design won second prize at the Berner Design Awards.

The design is refreshing and a nice change from the usual, looking modern and retro at the same time. The only flaw we see is that the bottom tray will be full of crumbs in no time. I’m not cleaning that up.

Microwave with built-in YouTube player

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on December 7th, 2009

Microwave with built-in YouTube playerA couple of boffins from Japan’s Keio University didn’t have enough YouTube in their lives, so they have developed a microwave aimed at other geeks just like them. I’m talking a YouTube-powered microwave. Because heating up those hotpockets can get boring.

The “Castoven” is based on a conventional, unbranded model of “good quality” and features a 10.4-inch LCD screen in the door panel and speakers. It’s connected to a Mac, but could easily work with Windows computers as well.

Fry 2.2 lbs of fries with just a spoonful of oil

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on December 1st, 2009

Fry 2.2 lbs of fries with just a spoonful of oilWho doesn’t love fried food? It’s as American as Apple pie and fried Snickers bars. Sadly it is not good for you and your arteries. However this T-fal ActiFry wants to change that. How? Well, it uses just a spoonful of oil to fry up 2.2 pounds of fries. That’s pretty impressive.

It uses convection cooking as well as a rotating paddle so that the fries get crispy on all sides, even though they aren’t covered in oil. Who knows how they taste, but at least it’s healthier. $300.

Salt and Pepper Bots

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on December 1st, 2009

Salt and Pepper BotsWhen you are eating dinner do you get sick of asking others to pass the salt? I bet they get sick of doing it too. Well, that problem is solved, as usual with robots. When you need the salt, it should walk to you right? Well, now it can.

That’s just what these Salt and Pepper bots do. Just wind them up and pass the salt or pepper. They will cost you $33. Now all we need are some condiment bots for things like ketchup and mustard. Maybe a sugar bot.

Thermochromatic Pot changes colors with heat

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on November 16th, 2009

Thermochromatic Pot changes colors with heatHow many times have you burnt yourself on a hot pot? There’s just no way to tell visually if it’s hot or not, which really sucks. And hurts. The Thermochromatic Pot can prevent such things from happening. It changes colors depending on how hot it is.

When you see the Thermochromatic Pot turn red, that means hot so don’t touch it. When there’s no trace of red at all it’s safe to touch. This could have saved us all some burnt hands had it been released a few decades earlier.

Joseph Joseph Fold Flat Kitchen Grater

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on October 1st, 2009

Joseph Joseph Fold Flat Kitchen GraterThe grater is an essential kitchen tool. But there are so many essential kitchen tools, that putting them all away and keeping the kitchen neat can be hard. Graters have always been a problem. Their squarish form is great for food prep, but not for storage in the cabinet.

Well, that just changed thanks to this Fold Flat Kitchen Grater from Joseph Joseph. It does what it says and folds flat for easy storage. There’s even a grip handle on the side for grating over food. The Fold Flat Grater features coarse stainless steel blades and is dishwasher safe.

Lego Cookie Cutter

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on September 9th, 2009

Lego Cookie CutterThis one is a win/win. You can’t go wrong with Legos and cookies. Lego cookies are awesome because theoretically you could build with the cookies and then eat your creation with a nice cup of milk. Assuming that it works of course.

According to one review, “the dough sticks to the cutter and is nearly impossible to get it off without ruining the shape”. But that’s what a little flour is for. Anyway, if it works, this is an awesome product for kids and adults alike.

Stone Cold ice tray

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on August 10th, 2009

Stone Cold ice trayKeep your drinks cold the Easter Island way, with ice cubes shaped like the statues of Easter island. It will be as if your drink is the Pacific ocean and the statues have fallen in, keeping everything chill.

There are no better ice cubes for tropical drinks. And if any of you know Leonard Nimoy, I suggest you put these in his drink and pretend you are watching In Search Of… as he blathers on about how Bill Shatner is hard to work with and how he enjoys Earth’s various mysteries.
