We love grilling indoors or outdoors and we especially love grilling for it's health benefits. This indoor electric grill operates on 1500 watts, and offers a roomy 131 square inches of cooking surface. It cooks on both sides at once, cutting down on time spent in the kitchen. The variable heat lets you sear steaks or toast a sandwich, cooking up to fifty percent faster than other indoor grills. A floating hinge accommodates various foods from thick burgers and panini sandwiches to delicate, thinner foods, like fish fillets or slices of Canadian bacon. A removable tray catches grease so you taste the food, not the fat.

We thought with the redesign of Kitchen Contraptions.com (yeah - look up we changed the header and stuff!) we'd have to write up a little piece of kitchen contraptions classic magic - The Osterizer Beehive Blender. Oster has been making beehive blenders for a long long time and the beehive blender is Oster's classic look that is counter worthy for any occassion. The signature base is equiped with an easy to use 2 speed toggle switch and a powerful 500 watt motor to help make blending easier. We think it's the best of all blenders to make a good Frappe or Smoothie with.

Nothing brings back childhood pain and suffering more than Smores. I can only remember the melted chocolate running over my hands as the roof of my mouth was burned off and I feel face first into the fire. Okay - so maybe that happened or maybe it didn't but now you can enjoy these delicious treats almost anywhere -- indoors or out! Perfect for backyard barbeques, picnics, and summer parties, smores are a fun, no-hassle dessert (except for the burning - THE BURNING!!!). They also make tasty late night snacks or fuel for movie marathons.

We recently covered the Mukka Express, but this Cow Patterned Espresso machine takes the cow coffee making prize! The Innova Dream is a solid cast metal pump-operated espresso and cappuccino machine featuring a 16 bar pump, high-pressure steam wand and cup warmer. The large diameter filter holder is made of brass for good heat conduction and maximum flavour extraction. Easily removable drip tray and water tank make the machine easy to clean.

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 need an upscale toaster oven for my kitchen me thinks! This one from Amadana is sweet. Amadana is a Japanese company that well - just makes beautiful stuff so finding these in the US may be tough. I think I need to move to Japan or have Japan move to me.

Imagine using three ways to cook your food: convection, conduction and infrared all in one unique unit! Now you can broil, roast, air fry, air boil, grill, bake, barbecue and steam, and it even cooks food directly from the freezer without thawing! It cooks everything from frozen dinners to steak, to a 12-pound turkey.

Time to make the donuts!!!! Wait - it's always time to make the donuts if you have an automatic donut maker. You can put this rather large (okay - it's 3 square feet of space) in your kitchen and amaze kids, grandparent, and nearly the entire block you live on given the steady output of cake donuts this baby will make. The Mark I cuts, fries, and turns donuts, then dispensing them onto a cooling rack automatically. You might not even need to con your 10 year old into helping cook in the kitchen if you have this little number.
Update: Check out the Automatic Donut Maker. It's another great donut maker.
Update: There is finally an Automatic Donut Maker for the home - the Dough-Nu-Matic
