Water cooking is the new rage. It involves slowly heating vacuum-sealed food in a water oven at low temperatures. The method allows the food to stew in its own juices and so locks in flavors and the pressure encourages flash marinating. This water oven cooks at preset temperatures, so there is no need to stir or monitor. Food can be cooked for hours and not be overcooked.

Nothing wrong with a sold food processor. This Cuisinart includes a locking lid with a rubber seal for liquid processing and two nesting bowls with spouts and locking blades. In addition, the processor has a wide-mouth feed tube that accommodates larger ingredients and reduces the need to cut food into smaller pieces first. The touchpad control panel offers three selections for on, off, and pulse.

We're soon heading south to the relatives for the Holidays, and we're thinking we need to invest in a roaster. The oven gets overwhelmed, and our Aunt Connie used to have one of these in Indiana before becoming a snowbird thus making the making of the sacred turkey much easier. We think the Rival 22qt Roaster in Stainless Steel will fit the bird of our desires - as it fits up to a 22 Pound Turkey. Stainless Steel Roaster Oven Body, plus a removable Enamel-on-Steel Roasting Pan, plus it features a lid rest. Birds don't that brown in a roaster - but they do stay moist. Can't wait to see if we can find a roaster when we arrive next week.

Baby food is expensive, and there's the other bit of not knowing exactly what's in there. The Beaba Babycook is a one-of-a-kind, patented compact countertop appliance that functions as a steamer, blender, warmer and defroster to prepare fresh, healthy meals for baby - thus you can now make your own baby food.
It starts by steam cooking vegetables, fruits and meats in less than 15 minutes, while preserver their vitamins and flavors. It then purees and blends them to the desired consistency. Parents can also use the Babycook to quickly reheat or defrost precooked foods. The bowl is made from unbreakable Polysulfone (PSU) and the cooking basket from transparent polypropylene (PP). It comes with a 2½ - cup capacity bowl, cooking basket, spatula and recipe booklet. The bowl and basket are top-rack dishwasher safe.
We think this is a great alternative to a blender, strainer, food processor - you name it. Sometimes having a dedicated device such as this for the year you'll need it and then for the following kids is well worth the money.

The Kenwood KM070 Cooking Chef let's you mix your food and cook it too. The claim is you put all your food and a mixer and cook it too - but we're having a hard time figuring out - what that would be as far as a meal? Soup? Bread? Well - they claim scrambled eggs, soups, and recipes that look alot like a slow cooker might be better. We'll have to just see it in action before buying.
