Using the Thermapen is quick and easy. Here we
are testing the temperature of a cup of pressed coffee
that requires a brew temp of 186-190F.
Just open the probe and the Thermapen comes on. Close it and it shuts off. No buttons or switches to catch germs, confuse you and cause errors. We used our Thermapen (thanks to ThermoWorks for sending) over the past weekend to test various brew temperatures in our coffee makers to seek a perfect brew. Temp readings from the Thermapen were almost instant unlike our older kitchen thermometers, and we loved how easy it was to hold and put away.

Did the Nasa Mars program just land a robotic garlic press on our countertops? We guess not but a Garlic Zoom XL did just land, and we're driving it around to garlic chopping success. How does it work? Just insert one or two peeled cloves in the trapdoor on top, close it up, and then drive your Zoom around the countertop. The stainless steel blades whizz around inside, slice and dicing the garlic.
- Clear acrylic body with stainless-steel chopping blades
- Fun for kids (the driving part! Don't let kids near the blades inside.)
- See-through design lets you see when garlic is chopped enough
- No more smelly garlic hands
- Blade unit removes for cleaning; top-rack dishwasher-safe

Modern Mechanix found from the February, 1930 issue of Modern Mechanics. According to 1930's scientists, the human body produces enough heat to cook potatoes as long as you put this kitchen contraption on your head.
Scientists have learned that our bodies are living machines of the combustion type in which the burning of fuel (food) is accompanied by the consumption of oxygen, liberation of heat energy and production of carbon dioxide as is the case in all combustion engines. Scientists find that the heat from a single person, if properly focussed, would be sufficient to cook potatoes.
Maybe they'll call you Mr. or Mrs. Potato head but we expect the yummy mashed results will be worth the burn.

You know - we never think to get a fun corkscrew - just one that works and is touted to do the job. In our experience hiring a Captain like Captain Banana should probably do the job just fine after a few glasses of wine. Designed by Stefano Giovannoni in 2009, the parrot sitting on top of the "captain" turns as you place it over your wine bottle.
