Silicone Power Glove For All Your Baking Needs

power-glove-oven-mitt

Remember the Power Glove from Nintendo? No? Then you’ll have no use for this. For anyone else with a bit of nostalgia, the above Indiegogo project should help you bake cakes while reliving potentially embarrassing moments of your childhood. A $39 pledge will put you in line for one, but considering how far from their goal they are right now, this might all be a pipe dream in the end.

Pipe dream… get it? Because Mario? Nintendo?… No?

Two Eggs and a Face With Gregg’s Fried Eggs Shaper

Sunny side ups aren’t just mere sunny side ups when you’re cooking them with Gregg’s Fried Eggs Shaper.

Ideally, the yokes go into the eyes, but there’s no rule that says you can’t just scramble the eggs so you’ll end up with a scrambled egg face that you can top with your favorite omelette toppings.

OhGizmo! Review: The Nomiku Immersion Circulator – Tasty Sous-Vide Goodness

smIMG_64891

Cooking food ‘sous-vide’ involves putting it in a sealed plastic bag and immersing it under water at relatively low temperatures for long periods of time. The idea is that you can precisely control the temperature of the bath and thus achieve perfect doneness levels through and through, all the while dissolving connective tissues in meat without diluting any of the flavour. The result is supremely tender steaks, jelly-like buttery fish, and fall-off-the-bone ribs. However, immersion circulators are often very pricey and sometimes large and unwieldy machines. The Nomiku is none of those things: it’s a $300 clip on circulator that uses your existing pots to do its work. We’ve been testing it for the last couple of weeks and this article is a quick overview of its abilities.

Su Chef App Generates Recipes Based On What You Have

Su Chef App

Anyone can follow the instructions in a cookbook and cook something. It takes a certain level of skill, a bit of talent, and a whole lot of experience to prepare full meals from scratch. In case you’ve got a refrigerator and cupboard full of random stuff and don’t really have time to run to the supermarket before supper, then the Su Chef app can help you out.

Instead of presenting recipes with the ingredients each dish requires, you’re supposed to key in the ingredients that you have. It’ll go through its database of over a hundred thousand recipes to find what dishes you can make with what you currently have. Aside from having tons of recipes built in, it also comes with a shopping list feature and lets you build menus based on a special diet, like Paleo, vegetarian, and high fiber, among others.

Su Chef can be downloaded from iTunes for $1.99.

Finally? A Scientific Formula for the Perfect Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Grilled CHeese

Think you’ve managed to perfect making a grilled cheese sandwich? Think again. The British Cheese Board and the Royal Society of Chemists worked hand in hand to come up with a recipe for what they claim is the perfect grilled cheese sandwich. If their recipe leads to the fine creation pictured above, then I’m all ears because even the photo of the sandwich is making me drool.

The society’s science executive Ruth Neale explained: “We found that the perfect slice can be made by melting 50 grams (1.8 ounces) of sliced hard cheese, such as cheddar, on a slice of white bread, 10 millimeters (.39 inches) thick, under the grill. The cheese on toast should sit at a distance of 18 centimeters (7 inches) from the heat source — which in our grill was at a temperature of 115 degrees Celsius (239 degrees Fahrenheit) — and needs to cook for four minutes to achieve the perfect consistency and taste.”Continue Reading

Blood? Tomato sauce? We’re not sure what exactly it’s supposed to look like, but there’s no denying the Splash Red Chopping Board will add some character to your kitchen. If you do decide it looks like blood, maybe you could buy the “Man getting stabbed” knife holder to go along with it. You’ll end up with a Dexter-esque cooking area, and it won’t cost you much at all, seeing as the chopping board is £17 or roughly $27. Pre-order now for a September delivery.

SolSource Reflector Can Cook Anything With The Power Of The Sun

solsource-1

If it wasn’t for the sun, we would simply not be around. It’s responsible for giving energy to practically all living creatures on the planet, as well as helping pasty white boys look a little less sick. If harnessed properly, it can also cook. The SolSun reflector is shaped so that the sun’s rays focus on the cooking area, and can reportedly grill a hamburger in about 6 minutes, or about the same time as a regular BBQ. Except of course this cooker doesn’t require any fuel, and is up to cooking temperature much faster than coal or propane. The thing weighs 40lbs, is 4.3ft. across, is made of a black steel base and plastic reflective panels, and assembles in about 30 minutes with the included tools. It’s able to support up to a 20L stockpot, although the maximum temperatures it reaches will obviously depend on weather factors. Still, at that diameter on a sunny day, you should be good to cook just about anything.

The SolSun is currently on pre-order on Kickstarter for $250, with shipping in October of this year, which is unfortunately a little late for the summer in some parts.

Ultrasound Device Checks Your Propane Levels

truma-propane-levelcheck-xl

If you’re enjoying the summer, there is a chance you’re using the inferior BBQing method known as the propane grill. Aside from it being a well known fact that cooking with propane is inferior to charcoal, you also have to deal with fill levels on your tank. How do you know it’s empty? You can knock on it, shake it, or lift it… all in an effort to figure out how much is left. Or, you can spend $90 and get the Truma LevelCheck. It’s a dead simple device that uses ultrasounds to check for liquids. Press it against the side of the tank, and an LED will tell you what’s on the other side: green means liquid, red, no liquid.
