Making Stuffed Burger Patties Just Got A Whole Lot Easier

stuff-a-burger-xl

A burger is a burger until it gets stuffed with some surprise or other: then it’s a ‘Better Burger’. We’re thinking cheese, bacon, cheesy bacon, or bacony cheese. Whatever your flavor of cheesy bacon stuffing, the Sur La Table® Stuff-A-Burger™ Press will help you form your patties with much less effort that if you were to go about it with your bare hands. It features special presses that help create a space for your stuffings, and make it a breeze to encapsulate them. “It offers two stuffed-burger sizes: a mammoth ¾-pound burger or, using the insert, a substantial ½ pounder.” And that could just be the best $13 you’ve spent for the upcoming BBQ season.

LoungePac Chair Is For Professional Beach Bums Only

LoungePac-The-Complete-Beach-Chair

Summer is on everyone’s mind these days, and that means trips to the beach are on the horizon. You can either go there like an amateur, with… a towel. Or you can gear up and bring the LoungePac Chair. When folded up, the 10kg (22lbs) chair is not much larger than a carry on bag, measuring 32″Lx25″Wx12″H. Once unfurled, ten seconds after you reach, you have got an adjustable umbrella, two large thermal Coolers with cupholders (coolers can hold wine bottles), and a removable tote bag. Even the leg support is removable if you fancy having your toes in the sand.

Versatility at the beach doesn’t come cheap, though: $259.

The Grillbot Is A Grill Cleaning Robot

grillbot

iRobot may disapprove of this usage of their trademark, but we don’t care and we’ll just say it: there’s a Roomba for everything these days. The Grillbot, although not at all associated with iRobot or the Roomba, performs much the same task that the carpet cleaning bot does, only on your BBQ. Equipped with a set of rotating bristle brushes, the single-button operated machine gets to work on caked on grease and grime, taking the grunt work out of your summer feasts. Or at least, some of the gruntwork. After a few minutes of driving around randomly, the grill will be clean and ready to barbeque another day.

Expected to hit the market in mid-June, the Grillbots will cost $70 for the base model and $100 for a premium version which will have unspecified extras.

This SuperSoaker Packs Some Ice

super-soaker-arctic-shock-1

Very few things scream “summertime” louder than running around the yard with a SuperSoaker in hand, shooting at anything that moves. It’s all fun and games… and it remains so even if you equip yourself with the Arctic Shock Super Soaker pictured above. Instead of just water, this particular gun also stores ice, which chills down the water it shoots. That’s sure to be really popular in the sweltering heat. And as the ice it stores melts, that too become additional ammo. It has a range of about 30 feet but is unfortunately not battery powered. The storage compartment fits 25 ounces of water, or water/ice mix and when it hits the shelves this spring, it’ll set you back $20.

3-In-1 BBQ Tool Seems Handy


By David Ponce

There are those who believe we’re hardwired to think that something that’s good at only one thing is better than something else that does several duties. That’s why the TV/DVD combos are rarely popular. But looking at the above 3-in-1 BBQ tool, we’re thinking that this idea maybe doesn’t apply to everything. It’s a spatula, a fork and a set of tongs: “flip, grab and stab.” Made out of stainless steel with sturdy wooden handles, at £29 ($46) it seems like the perfect companion for the summer that’s now right ahead of us in the northern hemisphere.
