Big Boss Rapid Wave Halogen Infrared Convection Countertop Oven

816W7oQfn5L._AA1500_.jpg

The Big Boss Rapid wave oven looks a lot like the Nuwave Oven but it's a bit different. It features triple cooking power: halogen, convection and infrared heat, and roasts, broils, bakes, air frie, grills, boils and steams all of your food to perfection. It features dishwasher safe parts, and cooks and fries without added oil. We like this all in one countertop ovens because they save you time and energy to cook your meals. We'll see if we can drum one of these up for review soon.

Review: Emson Electric 5Qt Smoker- The Only Indoor Pressure Smoker

5104y-t2JJL._AA300_.jpg

Emson was sent us their Emson Electric 5Qt Indoor Pressure Smoker, and we have to say right up front we're impressed. The indoor pressure cooker smoker can cook up to 4-pounds of food at once, and even cold smoke cheeses. For us in the Northeast outdoor smoking ends in October, and indoor smoking? Well we would have never thought such a thing existed until now. And now with the Emson indoor smoker we think our long winter ahead looks smoky and bright.


emson_all_stuff.jpg

You see the Emson Electric 5Qt Indoor Pressure Smoker is safe for indoor use, and cooking times are reduced by 50-percent. Pressure cooking also is a perfect match for smoking as the results are moist, juicy, and smoky. We used apple chips for the 12 pieces of chicken - 6 thighs and 6 legs in 35 minutes. Also people have asked - is this going to produce a ton of smoke in our house. Our answer - no. We didn't have any noticeable amount of smoke except smoky cooking smell which we love.

Slope and Bank Pancake Plates Store the Syrup for Dipping

ab254a56c42df2c2316d74663965805a.jpg

Pancakes with syrup and butter are our favorites, but sometimes, pouring syrup on top of your pancakes just isn't enough. Why? You want to be able to dip them in the syrup. This plate created by designer Jon Wye has a slope and bank to store the syrup right on your plate. The syrup pools together because of the slight slope and stays in a spot for maximum dipping. Set of two costs $45, and given a long term investment in syrup technology you're belly will thank you for it.

A di Alessi Captain Banana Corkscrew

31stSQRo8GL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

You know - we never think to get a fun corkscrew - just one that works and is touted to do the job. In our experience hiring a Captain like Captain Banana should probably do the job just fine after a few glasses of wine. Designed by Stefano Giovannoni in 2009, the parrot sitting on top of the "captain" turns as you place it over your wine bottle.

Waffle Maker Makes Maze Filled Breakfast Treats

Waffle-Maze.jpg

We for one are tired of simple square or round waffles with no interactivity. This design concept of a waffle maker that makes maze filled waffles is pretty interesting. The only problem - once you solve the maze you'll be pretty bored with these waffles.

Sonos Play 5 All-In-One Wireless Music Player for Your Kitchen

51gI6ppM46L._AA300_.jpg

Dubbed the S5, the Sonos Play 5 All-In-One Wireless Music Player has 5 integrated speakers powered by 5 digital amps for room-filling sound. We think given the control you can do with your iPod or iPhone this makes for a great kitchen radio. You can enjoy unlimited music, wirelessly play iTunes, free Internet radio, Pandora, Napster and more. They've even recently updated the Sonos to use Spotify and others. The simple setup and wireless expandability to play different songs in different rooms (you can sync up multiple Sonos boxes for around the house sound) makes this an amazing product. Sonos requires a high-speed Internet connection and wireless router.

Holiday Gift Pick: Philips Kitchen Clock Radio with 7-inch TV

41w4OzhcddL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

Don't you just want to finish the last part of the game while you make a little dinner, or perhaps watch some re-runs of Lassie? We do and this 7-inch widescreen LCD display with built-in ATSC digital TV tuner for high quality viewing is perfect for doing both. It features under-cabinet mounting for clutter-free kitchen counters, and the flip-down display panel saves counter space. There's even a MP3 Link with stand for portable music playback, and a magnetic remote control for convenient mounting onto fridge. We're not sure if we need yet another cooking timer but there's even one built in.
