Why wait to marinate?
Winner of Popular Science Magazine's Best of What's New Award in Home Technology, this marinator creates a vacuum inside the barrel that causes the food's fibers to stretch and become porous, while paddles inside of the rotating barrel flip and coat the food with marinade.
Unlike conventional techniques that only flavor the surface and require 24 hours of marinating for thick cuts of meat, the automated marinator infuses restaurant-quality flavor and succulence into a 5-lb. brisket in less than 20 minutes, while using half the amount of marinade required for pan or bag soaking.
So you know how when you're drinking some hot chocolate or coffee and you get to the bottom and there's a big pile of unmixed gunk sitting there? Here's an innovative solution: This self-stirring mug has a miniature battery-operated propeller at the bottom of the well that spins at 3,000 rpms at the touch of a button on the handle, automatically stirring your beverage and eliminating the need to dispose of stirrers or find a place to leave coffee-dampened spoons.
I love to listen to music while I cook. Unfortunately, I'm not a big fan of catching my iPod earbud wires in the blender. Enter the Under-Cabinet iPod Dock and Radio.
Most under-cabinet radios have an AM/FM radio, and sometimes a CD player. This one houses any docking iPod (and charges it too!). Listening to your favorite songs, you won't mind spending all day in the kitchen. It even includes a cooking timer and a handheld remote, which can control both the radio and the iPod.
This wine fridge not only keeps 8 bottles of wine at the perfect serving temperature, it even pours the wine. That's right, it dispenses a glass at a time from 4 different bottles, using inert nitrogen gas to push the wine out, controlling oxidation and maximizing the life of the opened bottles. With an insulated solid mahogany-framed glass door, two-stage pressure regulator, and interior lighting, this handcrafted dispenser is sure to be the "Wow!" item of your next dinner party. Expensive? Yes, but you can't put a price on cool.
Operating much like a pop-up toaster, this unique kitchen appliance lets you easily prepare two hot dogs (complete with toasted buns) in minutes. To use, simply drop two wieners in the center basket and the buns in the two toasting baskets on either side. Now there's absolutely no reason not to entertain.
Suffering from CRDI? (Can’t Remember Drink Ingredients) Now you will be able to manage anywhere you go with this hand-held digital assistant that gives you the recipe for almost any popular drink by name or ingredient.
This wine cooler is on permanent exhibit in The Museum of Modern Art. Its unbreakable, fully insulated case accommodates two bottles of red wine, white wine, champagne or mineral water chilled to proper serving temperature. Keep the removable chilling element in your freezer, ready to go on that summer excursion, al fresco dining, outdoor concert, sunset sail or round of golf with your boss.
The good news is you can barbeque with the lid down from beginning to end, always know how far along the cooking is, avoid running between the kitchen and BBQ – especially during the last part of cooking when you’re already busy enough – and avoid repeated moisture-depleting cuts to check the food. In fact, you can monitor the food’s temperature on a remote desktop temperature station. The bad news is that this wireless probe does not tell you when your gas tank is almost empty.
