If you want brick oven pizza at home, then you'll need a brick oven. This portable pizza oven can be used on a countertop or table. The oven heats without open flames, and the clay dome retains and circulates heat. The pizza cooks in 6 to 8 minutes and can make up to six personal pizzas at a time. It comes with six spatulas, cooking plate, and a dough cutter.

We received a set of Grill Charms recently, and have to say at our last cookout they came in handy. Grill Charms are similar in concept to the wine charm. These dime-sized solid stainless steel charms are placed in your food before grilling. The stems are serrated to hold securely while grilling, moving and flipping. Grill Charm your food prior to cooking to distinguish spices and flavors, steak temperatures, or to avoid health or allergy issues.
The big reason we need them is food allergies. We have two soy allergic people in our standard grill crew, and were able to mark meat that was just seasoned, and not marinated. We think these little charms can save you time as well on that one person who just has to have that burger or steak overcooked. We used one to mark a burger that needed that extra long time.
- Serrated to stay in securely while grilling, flipping and moving
- Made of high quality heat conducting stainless steel
- Food cooks evenly around charm
- Stress free grilling for grill master and guests
- Works with Burgers, Chicken, Steak, Pork, Fish and more!

Madness will ensue after you ingest the shear amount of meat you can grill on this wood fired grill. The Grillworks ($3,375) is handmade in the USA, and features an adjustable grilling surface that is moved up and down with a hand crank made of aluminum. It has two removable surfaces with slanted V-Channels that capture juices for post-grill prep, and runs on wood not charcoal. Hardcore.

Infrared ovens are the latest small appliance rage, and we've been fortunate enough over the past few weeks to be cooking with the Nuwave 20322 Pro Digital-Controlled Infrared Tabletop Oven. We were skeptical at first if this appliance could really make great tasting ribs, chicken, vegetables, and other foods, but we are skeptical no longer. The Nuwave oven delivers great tasting foods cooked perfectly, and it's easy. You simply set the timer and position the included racks and in whatever time you need the food to cook - you get moist really tasty results.
The Nuwave oven uses confection, infrared, and conduction cooking methods.
The Nuwave Pro cooks foods while keeping them moist on the inside, crisp and browned on the outside with out using any fats or oils. The Nuwave Pro Infrared Oven works with a patented trio of cooking methods: Conduction to apply heat directly to food, Convection to circulate the heat around the food, and Far Infrared radiant heat to penetrate the food to cook from the inside out.

This seems like a great thing to have next the grill. This stainless-steel pot as a brush built into the lid. The brush comes with two silicone brush heads -- one thick and one thin.

We're all about grilling this month here at Kitchen Contraptions, and that's why we bring you the bbq-donut®. The brainchild of German inventor and entrepreneur Sebastian Schmitt, the BBQ Donut allows you to float, grill, and chill. Power to the bbq-donut® is supplied via a Torqeedo Travel 400 Electro-outboard motor giving it a top speed of around 4km/h.
The bbq-donut® uses a low-smoke, charcoal-burning barbecue from Outdoorchef that sits in the middle, and there are integrated cavities in the table for safely holding drinks, plates and cutlery. One would not want to drop their knife, and have their donut sink to the bottom.

It is grill day here at Kitchen Contraptions because it is too hot today to think about doing anything inside the kitchen for dinner tonight. I don't have a good place to put the grill tools when we're not grilling. These stainless steel grill tools with wood handles fold for compact storage. You can get a brush, tongs, and a spatula.

Serious grilling may require a belt. This belt and tool set has three washable inserts to hold a grill knife, tongs, and spatula.

We love to grill, and we love the fact the grill is outside not heating up the house when cooking. The Evo Grill will set you back $3150, so this grill is not for everyone. We like the the circular, flat-top and open design. The dual burner flameless cooktop and precise heating controls let you handle a variety of foods, and it can be used with other cookware for boiling and poaching. There's also a hood, if you like to close the grill down for some serious temperature assaults.
