This Kickstarter project aims to rend the very fabric of space and time. The product is a camping pot for boiling water and doing a little cooking in a pinch but get this: the pot is made of paper.
The pot is completely biodegradable and folds flat in your backpack. It’s mostly designed for a single use although you can feasibly boil a few bottle-fulls of water in it over time. The foods you… → Read More

We did a little roast beast this year on Christmas, and although it turned out great, there was a huge amount of consternation involving variations in oven temperature, at what intervals to re-baste, and that sort of thing.
If only there were a precision cooking instrument in which I could put a vacuum-packed hunk of meat and have it suspended in a perfect mass of temperature-controlled water… → Read More
[France] Tablets are destined to be the next super trendy tech device. CrunchGear regularly reports on new devices that will be launched by PC or mobile manufacturers, and Apple will one day join the dance. Analysts have announced that the tablet war will take place in 2010 so we just have to be patient.
It’s true, anything can be improved. Some clever designer has created what could be the penultimate kitchen gadget. The digital spoon. The issue is, while for general cooking, you can use volume measuring. Normally, just using that one cup measure isn’t going to cause problems. However when you get into more gourmet usage of high end spices, it just doesn’t cut it. So you need to… → Read More
Well, look at that. Off to college and suddenly it’s time to learn how to (theoretically) fend for yourself. You can’t fill up on nasty food court or cafeteria items all the time, but luckily it’s really not hard to cook up some down-home vittles right from your dorm or (hopefully) your first apartment. Here are some basics that you’ll need to get you through mealtime. → Read More
Microwave cookology keeps getting better and better. Back in the day, one would just throw whatever in the box and nuke it ‘till done. Problem with that was that many meals turned out soggy and unevenly cooked. Some meals turned out better than others, but ultimately nothing ever browned, which gives food good ol’ deliciousness. Eventually microwaveable pizzas showed up on the scene and… → Read More

A couple USB wires, some bits of porcelain, and a couple pans are all you need for a functional whatever-it-is. Of course, since it needs two USB ports, you’re out of luck if you have a MacBook Air. Proven useless… → Read More
[photopress:endorsement031908.jpg,full,right] We’re endorsing the George Foreman Grill today. This is how I spend my spring break. Before using the GFG, I didn’t know how to cook. After using the GFG, I still don’t know how to cook! Is that the fault of the grill, or the fault of my own faulty upbringing and complete lack of ambition? I’m gonna guess it’s my fault… → Read More

It uses no oil and is great for beef, fish, and chicken. I can’t get to the product website, but feel free to enjoy this washed out photo of a steak on a rock while you wait for it to come back up.

How many of you know how to cook? Like, if need be, you’d be able to whip out a full-course Thanksgiving meal for your family? If you can’t—I certainly couldn’t; we’d be eating Cap’n Crunch—then have a look at the Jennie-O oven-ready turkey. It’s a full-sized turkey in a bag that you stick in the oven with no preparation. There’s no thawing… → Read More

I’m probably one of the most impatient people alive. For this reason, above all others, I love the microwave. The problem is that microwaved food doesn’t come out nearly as good when heated in an oven. Fortunately, Black & Decker might have the solution to my dilemma. Its new InfraWave Oven uses 1500-watts of crazy InfraWaves to cook your food to perfection. It’s available… → Read More
As one of CrunchGear’s many resident alcoholics, I feel it is my duty to present to you the following DIY contraption.

The article explains in great detail what you’ll have to do to in order to get a speakeasy up and running in your domain. → Read More
I have a few friends who could immensely benefit from the Beyond Microwave Oven from Smart Home. Using a bardcode scanner, this micro can automatically adjust cooking times and temperatures. It features 4000 preprogrammed items and based on what you scan, it analyzes the food and estimates appropriate settings based on what information the barcode gives it. As Popgadget points out, this would be… → Read More
