Vorwerk Thermomix TM 31 Multifunctional Kitchen Machine

thermomix-tm31.jpg

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.

Kitchen Contraption Cooks Potatoes with Head Energy

1f1ff688357fc88d5218afbf44c71abc.jpg

Modern Mechanix found from the February, 1930 issue of Modern Mechanics. According to 1930's scientists, the human body produces enough heat to cook potatoes as long as you put this kitchen contraption on your head.

Scientists have learned that our bodies are living machines of the combustion type in which the burning of fuel (food) is accompanied by the consumption of oxygen, liberation of heat energy and production of carbon dioxide as is the case in all combustion engines. Scientists find that the heat from a single person, if properly focussed, would be sufficient to cook potatoes.

Maybe they'll call you Mr. or Mrs. Potato head but we expect the yummy mashed results will be worth the burn.

c7657e9427c807567484e1630287ac0d.jpg

Jell-O's Temptations dessert is being marketed to adults and this vending machine has built-in face recognition to check the age of anyone who approaches so if you're a kid - it says, "NO PUDDING FOR YOU!" We're not sure what is says but first developed by Intel, the dispenser uses facial data, like the size of your eyes and their distance apart, to figure out how old you are.The device does not take or store photos, but of course does give out pudding.

Holiday Gift Pick: La Crosse Atomic Digital Wall Clock with Indoor Temperature

61h+FqoUsfL._AA1000_.jpg

This Atomic Digital Wall Clock with Indoor Temperature features self-setting time and date. The clock automatically updates for seasonal time changes where applicable, and the clock with alarm and snooze features time with seconds. It also displays time, date, day, temp on one screen, and the clock can be wall hanging or free standing. We love a good kitchen clock, and we think having the temperature in the kitchen is also key - too hot or too cold can make for a great or bad baking day.

Holiday Gift Pick: Inflatable Turkey Saves Cooking Time

51sk+IPWZGL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

If you're looking to save on cooking time, and you think you're turkey cooking efforts could be easier then this Inflatable Turkey looks so delicious you can almost smell the stuffing when you blow it up and impress your guests. Keep the carving knives away, because this bird is strictly for show and made of hot air (so you'll need to serve something else). It will fit right on the table carving plate as well while you cook a real bird.
