We've been doing a fair amount of reading in the area of Solar Grills. A solar grill is the perfect addition to your outdoor kitchen and can barbecue fish, chicken, GIANT steaks, and yes - even vegetables. The Solar-Grill has a flexible mirror, which focuses the sun beams on the barbecue cup allowing it to heat up. Your meal is cooked in the self contained barbecue cup an heated evenly from all sides, without direct irradiation by sunlight.

Update:The Tammock site now has an order form for those who want to purchase their own solar grill.
Interesting little kitchen contraption that makes ice cream in what appears to be the dome from Epcot. No - seriously the Play & Freeze is shapped like a football and has a metal cylinder in side where you add your ingredients to make ice cream.

I think in your kitchen you need a TV made to look like food. I've been following this trend of making TVs look like everything from Mickey Mouse to a Frog - but now apples? It seems Hanspree - a Taiwan based TV maker, is preparing to offer such designs as it launches U.S. operations this summer. I'm pretty sure kids will love these and adults that buy things for kids will love them too.
I love spice racks. I love magnetic spice racks. Currently we have the Soho spice rack in our kitchen, but I want this new Magnetic Spice Rack from Zevro. The main complaint I have with the Soho is the size of the canisters and the fact they don't fit in your hand that great. The Zevro spice rack seems to fix this by having a longer tubular design that would accomodate - vigorous shaking. Nice!

These dispensers and indispensable! If you have more than 2 humans in your house that consume mass quantities of cereal - then the Zevron Indispensable dispensers may be for you. Each one allows you to have full control over the amount of cereal or snack that you desire. You can even set the amount - thus ensuring the right portion every time. Suitable for all dry foods including cereal, candy, granola, trail mix, nuts etc, the Indispensable dispenser is also very easy to clean.

The Fusionware Cutting Tray from Vessel takes the tough problem of cutting something up and not having to use yet another item to serve it up. The tray doubles as a cutting board and a serving tray by having a unique handle that accomodates two separate cutting boards on top. Imagine prepping some cheese, crackers, and spreads and then taking this right to where the action is.
Continuing our madness over all things egg cooking - we present the Automatic Henrietta Egg Cooker! Not only does it cook up to seven eggs at a time, it looks like a roosting hen when it does the cooking!

We are into all things efficient, and the folks at MetaEfficient have found yet another efficient means of cooking. Soaptone is an excellent material for cooking, as it can withstand temperatures twice as high as other metal cookware and also has a natural non-stick surface.

Happy Birthday PepperBall!® The 10th Anniversary PepperBall® feature brushed stainless steel handles and a clear polycarbonate body, subtly accented by minute, silver metallic flecks. The one-handed grinding mechanism is the same as in the original PepperBall but the look surely isn't.

Sometimes I feel as if most of the kitchen gadgets and contraptions we find come right from Dr. Evil's kitchen. That being said a smooth curved egg looking egg cooker is well - evil. Imagine how many eggs you can consume if you have this in your kitchen? Like the automatic egg cooker we covered earlier, this egg cooker has a poaching tray, cooking tray, and beaker with egg piercing action! GO GO EGG COOKER!
