Just what does it take for us to buy an ice cream maker for our kitchen? How about a soft serve option. We'll admit it, we're pretty big fans of soft serve along with custard - so this Cuisinart does the trick. You can customize your cone with this soft serve ice cream maker that automatically adds up to three of your favorite mix-ins. It makes 1-1/2" quarts of fun, fresh ice cream in just 20 minutes.
Here's how it works:
- Pull out tabs to release mix-ins - like chocolate chips or sprinkles - down the chute and right into your frozen dessert
- When your combination is just right, simply pull down the handle to dispense

I didn't know there were electric fondue makers, but it makes sense. This 3-quart pot will work with cheese, broth, oil, and chocolate fondues. It has an adjustable temperature control probe to allow you to keep the temperature steady without scalding. It comes with 8 fondue forks and a stainless steel fork ring.

I love the name Snackmaster! This food dehydrator has a 500 watt motor that dries food in hours. There is no need to rotate trays, and it has an adjustable thermostat. It comes with a fruit roll sheet and two original jerky spice and curing packets.

This slow cooker does it all. You can saute, cook, serve, and store in the same pot. It has a removable oval stoneware base that you can use on the stove or in the oven. If you are using it for slow cooking, it has a digital timer that indicates the end of the cooking process before automatically shifting to a keep-warm setting.

We're always looking at different ways we can improve our cooking experience - and a portable induction cooker for woks hits the mark. CookTek has a line of portable induction cooking systems with LED temperature displays specifically for use with woks. Yeah - woks.
Imagine having your own portable chef with a portable wok show up at your home or you could take them on the road. Models start at $500, and can be as expensive as $2,000, depending on wattage you choose. We think we'll start on the lower side of the price range.

Induction cooking is the wave of the future. It is efficient because it uses 90 percent of energy produced and is supposedly as precise as gas, but has 50 percent less cooking time. This induction burner has easy touch controls with six temperature settings.

Part mixer, part blender, a kitchen machine tries to do the majority of kitchen tasks all in one kitchen contraptions. We've been researching whether to buy a built-in or a stand alone. We think the built in kitchen machine does look amazing, but when the motor burns out - or we need it fixed - will there be someone to come help us out. Who knows - but we really like the concept.

We have a mixer and have used a variety of non-successful methods to keep the bowl clean when making cookies or dough. The SideSwipe Mixer Blade was created for head-tilt stand mixers which adds silicone fins that keep the sides of the bowl scrapped clean, and helps prevent wasted dough. For only $25 bucks you can add it to your arsenal of kitchen stuff, and versions for bowl-lift KitchenAids, Cuisinart, and Kenwood mixers are expected next year.
