The Hot Rock is a very unique dining concept. Each diner cooks their own meat on a volcanic stone! The idea of cooking on rocks has been used for centuries by all different cultures, and the evolution of this cooking process has been captured by Hot Rock. No oil or fat is required to be used. It is ideal for meat and vegetarian dishes. Hot Rock meals are quick, entertaining, healthy and delicious if you know how to cook your meat.

Top Chef's have been using a Culinary Laser Thermometer for years in their kitchens to precisely take the temperature of cooking surfaces before putting food on a hot surface. This avoids burning, undercooking and sticking to the pan. The BonJour Culinary Laser Thermometer Guide takes the guess work out of vague cooking terms such as sear, simmer and saute.

We've been using the Smellkiller to rid ourselves of kitchen smells, but it's nice to see a product breathe a breath of fresh air into the smell killing world of the kitchen. The brethe™ air revitalizer removes up to 99% of odor causing bacteria, and features an all natural odor removal system. We're not sure how it filters the air - given there's no filter, but at least there's three 2.03 fluid ounce scents included: Refreshing Citrus, Energizing Lime and Soothing Vanilla. Also there's a soothing blue light that adds ambiance to any environment while the smell fades.

We need an Egg Cracker in our messy egg cracking lives. It seems that every time we make anything egg related, the shells end up in the whites, the yolks, and those shells end up in the final cooked products. Not sure why we are so egg cracking challenged, but we are. This egg cracker is pretty easy to use - you put an egg in it and press it shut, then the yolk and whites come out, leaving the shell behind where it's supposed to be.

We consume so much garlic here at Kitchen Contraptions, we wonder if we'll ever get the smell our of our hands somedays. Mr. Garlic's Press and Peeler looks like a great alternative to our current garlic mincing smelly hands fiasco. You simply insert the unpeeled cloves, roll to peel the garlic, fill the grinder with peeled garlic clove, and turn the press. Bam! Minced garlic and less smelly garlic hands.

In a galaxy far far away - someone is dreaming up kitchen gadgets based on Star Wars characters. It's nice to see they started with R2D2 - a very versatile robot, and capable of holding mass amounts of soy sauce. If you are looking for a sci-fi kitchen gift - this may be your only hope.

A work of art or a bottle opener? You decide. The bottle opener is made in Japan from iron ore and finished with a “urishi” glaze, which gives it a black burnish.
