This is one fancy tea brewer. This kettle lowers the tea leaves into the water when it reaches the perfect temperature and then lifts them out after the ideal steeping time. There are five preset tea varieties and three brewing strengths. You can also remove the brewing basket to use the kettle by itself. And you can keep water at 160 degrees F for up to an hour.

This SousVide Supreme Water Oven combines a thermostatically controlled, touchpad enabled, super slow cooker function with vacuum packed foodstuffs and water to deliver perfectly cooked fish, vegetables, and other sealed items of your choice.
The product of decades of refinement by top chefs, the SousVide Supreme Water Oven cooks sealed food at precise preset temperatures for consistent cooking, and wonderful flavors. Vacuum-sealed food loses virtually none of its flavor or nutrients during cooking, and the pressure encourages flash marinating, naturally enhancing the delicious tastes and aromas of the food with little added seasoning.
The people behind the SousVide Supreme Water Oven provided us a review unit, along with spices, and a vacuum sealer for 1 week to review. We had to think fast on what we wanted to try, and decided on giving steak medium rare a try and document the process and our thoughts.

That's right - the people behind the SousVide Supreme Water Oven have sent us a review unit which we'll be using over the coming week. We'll try a variety of recipes including steaks, vegetables, and whatever else we can think up. The unit is very cool looking out of the box, with a space age quality to it right away.

We consume a lot of expensive yogurt here at Kitchen Contraptions, and we've always wondered what we'd need to make it less expensive at home. This electric yogurt maker produces up to 42 ounces of homemade yogurt at a time, and uses fresh ingredients--no artificial additives or preservatives required. It comes with 7 6-ounce lidded glass jars for making single-serving portions. Also the see-through cover allows you to see how the yogurt is coming along. We'll have to see if this is something we'll get in the coming months.

This fully automatic 1-1/2-quart ice cream machines makes frozen yogurt, sorbet, and ice cream. It features a brushed stainless-steel housing; commercial-style compressor freezer; and prefreezing is not required. It also has precise temperature control and efficient mixing with a fully automatic 60-minute timer. We've never had such a high end ice cream machine, but we expect making our favorite maple walnut ice cream should be a bit easier than our hand cranked ice cream machine we currently have.

It's hard to call this blend a small appliance when it can generate blade speeds of 240 mph with a 2+ horsepower motor. This countertop blender with laser-cut stainless-steel blades featuers a durable all-metal construction; variable speed control 64-ounce jar; recipe books, instructional DVD, and manuals. We've seen one in action and can testify - it will blend just about anything you throw at it.
