All we really know is that it's February here at Kitchen Contraptions, and yes it's cold here in the Northeast, but we drink iced tea all year round. We also know for many people in the US and abroad it's summer or spring all year long - perfect for iced tea.
This slim, 2-quart pitcher fits in refrigerator door, and there's an adjustable brew-strength selector to get the iced tea in your flavor range. This iced tea maker will also make fresh-brewed iced tea from leaves or bags in under 10-minutes.

Sure it's Valentine's Day and it may be a little late for fondue in your day, but we think maybe you'll get one so that next year you'll be that romantic kitchen geek anyone could love. This electric fondue set is suitable for chocolate, cheese, broth or oil includes base, bowl, temperature probe, 8 fondue forks, and fork rack. The brushed stainless-steel 3-quart bowl with nonstick interior has a removable temperature control that's adjustable for a wide range of recipes.
We're partial to oil and meat dipping, but if chocolate is your game make sure and get both savory bits and sweet bits for dipping.

Look how happy this girl is in the picture, and you'll realize how happy you could be if you had the Joyoung Easy-Clean Automatic Hot Soy Milk Maker. This soy milk maker has six intelligent protection functions for safe operation, and comes with an easy to clean stainless steel jug, filter, blade, and heating element.
The Joyoung Easy-Clean Automatic Hot Soy Milk Maker makes up to 1.6 Liter of fresh milk from soy beans, rice, mung beans, and almonds. We have a young son with soy allergies, but it's nice to see you can make rice milk with this maker. This set also include their exclusive best taste NON-GMO (not genetically modified) Soybean samples of 0.3LB gift bag, and a special discount voucher to order from their soybean farm store.

The Oster 4722 Rice Cooker with Steaming Tray in red cooks a variety of food including rice, soup, fondu and even steams vegetables. You can prepare up to 10 cups of rice, and it also features a 1-liter steaming tray. There's an automatic keep warm feature, and it's very simple to use with a one touch button. We really like the red color, and the brushed look of the exterior is also a nice change over shiny plastic or just plain metal. We are eating more and more steamed vegetables this year, and we think you'll welcome the change. Don't over steam them, but steam enough to make broccoli and asparagus crispy fresh.

What's a kitchen machine to do? Make soup. The revolutionary soup mixer will weigh, chop, mix, stir, cut, crush, grind, pulverise, knead and emulsify. And it even cooks the food to perfection too. The innovative Vorwerk Thermomix combines the function of more than 12 kitchen machines and has over 20 patent applications. Thermomix TM 31 is the combination of counter clock and clockwise rotations - the former stirs or cuts tender food, such as fish, noodles or asparagus without destroying it, while the latter chops fresh or frozen ingredients. The multifunctional kitchen machine is also equipped with the slow stirring level which gently stirs the food.
We've never heard of a machine that also cooks the food too, but we want one. See if it's available in your country here, and we know in the US you can only get service or parts but not purchase the TM 31.

The UNOLD automatic pasta machine makes noodles and pastries of all shapes and sizes. The electric pasta maker can accommodate up to 500 grams of flour, and with its 8 attachments the pasta machine mixes and kneads the ingredients automatically. The machine can be completely taken apart for convenient and fast cleaning, and you can also put all the parts into your dishwasher. Only available in Europe for now is a bummer, but look for the same features on machines you might buy here in the US.
