Tell Rosarita to please pack her knives and leave, because daddy’s coming with some thick and manly cotton oven mitts from Blue Q. Those with the high level grill (or saucier) capabilities will appreciate them – because women aren’t the only ones who cook at home.
THE BEST Kitchen
Heatworks’ Tetra is a dishwasher that sits right on your kitchen counter. You simply place half a gallon of water in it and it does the rest. Its racks can be replaced to hold different types of tableware. It can even clean other objects and steam food. Drops 12/2018 for $299.
Need to defrost meat fast? Sure, you can use the microwave, but that partially cooks food, and can encourage bacteria. The Yeti Touch claims to safely defrost rock-solid meats in half the time of air thawing by using a conductive plate that draws the cold away from foods.
Assassinate your asiago and conquer your cheddar with this set of stainless steel and beechwood implements of kitchen warfare. You’ll get two tiny battle axes and a spear to battle your brie, a wood shield chopping board, along with a display holder for your arsenal.
Feastform cooking tools are made of Grade 5 titanium alloy, which means they’re lightweight, flexible and highly resistant to rust. The Technora fiber handle wrap is also durable and resistant to moisture and chemicals. Available as a spatula or a pair of nesting tongs.
Brooklyn outfit American Heirloom makes this series of sustainably-forested bamboo plywood cutting boards in the shapes of all 50 U.S. states, as well as Puerto Rico and Washington DC. We wonder if you collected them all if you could make a giant puzzle of the U.S.
A couple of years back, we spotted Nostalgia Electrics’ awesome 3-in-1 breakfast machine, which is great, but only if you’re eating solo. This version has a much bigger non-stick grill, can toast 4 slices at once, and has a 4-cup coffee maker. Available in aqua or red.
Bacon is one of the most delicious foods on the planet, but it’s difficult to cook properly and without making a mess. This kitchen gadget perfectly cooks up to six strips of bacon on a non-stick grille, keeping it from shriveling up, and catching all the grease in a tidy drip tray.
For those of us incapable of keeping house plants alive, there’s always the trusty cactus. But if you can’t even handle that, there’s always these coasters that look like a cactus, but require no care and feeding. Includes 6 cork coasters, a slotted lid, and a terracotta pot.
As much as we love the look and utility of wooden cutting boards, they can cause cross-contamination no matter how hard you scrub. These flexible, biodegradable bamboo sheets can be disposed of after usage. They also have a self-stick backing to keep them from sliding.
You’re gonna need a smaller serving. AviCeramics makes beautiful serving stoneware plates that use an open shark’s mouth for condiments. Use it to hold sushi, wings, veggies and more. AviCeramics also makes a matching stoneware spoon that looks like a diver’s dismembered leg.
Flatev is a compact home tortilla maker that works like Keurig coffee machines. It uses recyclable single serve pods that contain flavored dough or corn mix and turns those into a 5″ to 6″ tortilla in just a minute. The drawer at the bottom keeps multiple tortillas warm.
