A Spadle Is A Spoon And Ladle In One

spadle-2

The spoon sure likes to get around. First it mates with the fork, giving the world the atrocious invention known as the spork. And now we have the Spadle. This device easily converts between a versatile cooking spoon with a silicone tip, to be used with shallow pans, into a ladle that can scoop out hearty 1/2 cup portions of whatever stew or soup you’re working on. The handle features a hinge that lets you go between modes easily, and the head also has measurement lines at 100ml, 1/4 cup, tablespoon, and teaspoon. It’s all of $20.

Breakfast Sandwich Maker Machine

eggs-machine-1

The following is a featured article. -Ed.

Steps. That’s what you’ want to avoid when getting up in the morning, when you’re barely able to comprehend what planet you’re on. Steps to do this, or steps to do that. It would be infinitely better if all the steps could be combined into one, so that you wouldn’t have to think about what you’re supposed to be doing. Kind of like how this Automatic Eggs Hamburger Maker combines all the steps that go into the preparation of a breakfast sandwich right into one. It has room for the eggs, which will fry in their own pan, as well as a separate compartment for the meat, and for the bread. Just toss all the ingredients in their respective place and the sammich maker takes care of the rest. The best part is that it’s only $36.18 and if you use the coupon code “GBHOME12” you can get an additional 12% off. As a matter of fact, if you check out this page, you’ll see a list of popular kitchen items that will also work with the same 12% off coupon.

Egg Ninjas Make Handling Hard Boiled Eggs Easier

1-312

Look, it’s not like this is a serious problem in the kitchen, but handling recently boiled eggs does require a little bit of finesse. That’s why the Egg Ninjas were created. Stick an egg in the silicone suction cup, leave the ring tag outside the boiling water pot and when it’s ready, just pull it out. You can then set it down on a table as shown in the picture, to let it cool. As it does so, your quests will giggle a little at your egg ninjas, then they’ll get bored of the novelty and just eat the darn thing. But at $13, it’s an inexpensive way to add a little bit of whimsy to your breakfast.

Well, you get the point. They’re very nice looking and would fit right in the Lord of the Rings universe. Luckily for you, they’re available in this universe, although we don’t know for how much.

Pizza On Your Gas Stovetop? Yes, It’s Possible

Pizzeria-Pronto-Stovetop-Pizza-Oven

Getting a good pie requires a few elements, the most important of which is a really hot pizza oven. It’s not ever over that reaches the 600F that usually yield great results, but with the Pizzacraft PC0601 Pizzeria Pronto Stovetop Pizza Oven you’ll get there in 15 minutes flat… as long as you’ve got a gas stovetop. If you do, once the temp is reached, your pie will be baked in as little as 6 minutes!

Most conventional ovens can only achieve temperatures of 500 F and require up to an hour to reach those heats. The Stovetop Pizza Oven can heat up to 600 F in about 15 minutes, allowing you to cook your pizza in as little as 6 minutes. The Stovetop Pizza Oven uses one of your stovetop’s gas burners to reach cooking temperature. Simply place the oven on top of your burner and turn it on. The oven’s heat-efficient design traps and reflects heat to create the optimal pizza-cooking environment. Dual cordierite baking stones absorb the direct heat from the flame and redistribute it evenly, eliminating hot spots. The stones are separated by a layer of air to diffuse heat, and the bottom stone has a cutout for improved airflow. The built-in thermometer lets you know when it’s time to cook, and the moisture vent in the top prevents your pizza from becoming soggy. With the Pizzeria Pronto Stovetop Pizza Oven, you can get pizzeria-perfect pizza in your own home.

The device will yield 12 inch pizzas reliably, and costs a very reasonable $161.

ROK Espresso Maker Uses No Electricity, Is As Hands-On As It Gets

rok-espresso-maker

There’s an entire sub-culture devoted to discussing ways of crafting the perfect espresso. Very often these guys talk about maintaining the perfect temperature, and perfect pressure during the extraction process; it’s a very precise technique some manufacturers claim to have honed to a science. The ROK Espresso Maker takes a completely different approach; call it an artistic interpretation of coffee extraction. See, the device uses no electricity. It’s up to you to boil your own water. More importantly, it’s also up to you to press this water through your ground beans at the exact rate and pressure you feel will yield the right flavour for your buds. You can either press the arms all the way down and let the mechanism do its thing, or you can do a combination of other actions to vary the extraction process, from over-filling the reservoir, to pausing for a few seconds to let the water infuse into the grind. If modern machines are the epitome of automation, the ROK is the exact opposite, letting you wrestle with all the variables for a truly hands-on approach to coffee making. It’s $155.

These Are Darth Vader’s Oven Mitts

darth-vader-oven-mitt-1

Well… no, they’re not. Because let’s face it, Darth Vader wouldn’t be cooking now, would he? But if you want to stick your hands in a hot oven, we bet you won’t be able to use The Force so you’re going to need these silicon oven mitts made to look like Vader’s gloves; there’s even the Imperial Logo on the palm. Unfortunately, it seems it’s for right handed individuals only, but we suppose that for grabbing things out of the oven, lefties can manage with their non-dominant hand. It’s $15.
