We've had the pleasure over the past few weeks of using Stirr from uutensil. What seems like a gimic (come on - you can't watch your soup) has turned into a real treat when it comes to lunch time. We often eat lentil soup at lunch time, and prefer it over a hot stove to microwaving it with radiation. We also often get interrupted in the Kitchen Contraptions test kitchen, thus leading to burned on the bottom soup. That's where Stirr comes in - made with silicone feet on the bottom that vibrate thus making it turn and stir, Stirr is a stirring wonder. It's basically an automatic kitchen helper that comes with 3 settings, so no matter how thick the soup or sauce - Stirr gets the job done.
We love it - and think you should check it out for your stove top needs. Can you say easy risotto? We can now that we have Stirr.
That's right folks - there's a Jerky Gun included. What? The NESCO Jerky Xpress home jerky maker includes everything you need to make homemade jerky -- just add ground beef, turkey or venison. The Jerky Xpress dehydrator has a 350 watt, fixed temperature, top down power head with patented Fan Flow Radial Flow drying technology. That all sounds impressive, but we need to know more about this Jerky Gun - anyone? Anyone?
Tired of getting olive or pickle fingers while you reach into the jar for the perfect snack? The Fridge Fork hopes to eliminate the need to put your fingers in so you can easily get that pickle out of the jar. It attaches directly to any pickle jar, so it will always be there in a pickle crisis. It can be purchased online for $5.99, and we think we might need multiple ones to ensure they get cleaned after the jar is empty.
This could be a good safety device to have in addition to a fire extinguisher. The StoveTop FireStop is a automatic fire prevention device. It magnetically rests above a stove. If a flame touches it, it automatically dispenses a non-toxic, fire suppressing dry powder. The device is not set off my smoke or normal cooking heat.
Don't like salt and pepper all over your counter? This spice grinder has the grinding mechanism at the top, so the spices won't be all over your counter. It can be used with seeds, spices, peppercorns, and sea salt and you can adjust the grinding wheel from fine to course.
We make bacon just about every weekend for the kids, and we always have a little sample as well. It's always a mess with our current microwave setup, and the WowBacon Cooker looks to make bacon easier and with less cleanup. It's small, takes up little space but no bacon cooker can make bacon faster. You can broil a pound of regular or thick cut bacon in less than 10 minutes (we typically do 2 - 5-6 minute runs). Check out the video for more details, but this looks to be the real deal on bacon in the microwave.
Make applying ketchup or mustard more exciting with a condiment gun. You simple fill the cartridge with your favorite condiment, put the cartridge in the gun, and squeeze. It comes with two cartridges, so you can have two different condiments handy.
We eat a lot of garlic in our house, so we like an implement that can press a lot of garlic at one time. This garlic press can supposedly crush up to six garlic cloves at one time with just a light squeeze. You don't even need to peel the garlic beforehand.
Usually microwave popcorn comes in a bag. But with this jar, you can microwave your own popcorn by filling the bottom with kernels and adding the desired amount of butter into the melting lid. The butter lid strains the butter over the freshly popped popcorn.
