The QOOQ is a kitchen computer and it comes with 10 recipes from chefs on video, and you might as well know up front - currently it's in French only. QOOQ also can connect to the internet over the Ethernet or Wifi, and you can even subscribe to monthly updates for more recipes on video. There is also a meal planner and a shopping list maker that will also help before the cooking. Oddly enought QOOQ doesn't have an Internet Browser, but it can be used to update recipes, get weather information, internet radio stations, and can also be used as a digital picture frame.
Sounds perfect for our kitchen, though currently we've been enjoying our Squeezbox Radio. Also - it's tough to make the transition to a device that stores recipes when all of our recipes are snipped from Cooking Light, and other magazines. Time will tell if the kitchen computer catches on, but if they can bridge the gap and get our offline recipes online - we'll be a taker.

We received this baking and ice cream scoop from Kuhn Rikon to review. I used it this weekend to make cookies. It worked great for scooping up the cookie dough. The squeeze handle was a little tight, but my 5 year old could do it as long as she used both hands. And the cookie dough released very easily onto the cookie sheet. It can also be used for ice cream or meatballs. It comes three sizes.

Safe Slice helps you safely grip and chop fruits, vegetables, and other food, keeping your fingers out of harm's way. Soft finger grips provide comfort while you hold food and solid protective shield keeps your fingers protected from the blade. Given how many times a year we get ourselves, it's nice to have a gadget that could prevent slicing off our fingers.

We currently have a Kuhn Rikon can opener, but it looks like they have updated it. There can openers leave a smooth edge, so that you won't get hurt. This opener also grips the lid until it is released with the push of a button.

This juicer is cool looking and practical. The juicer is slanted, so the juice runs off to the end and the seeds get caught in the teeth.
