As I found out last night, sometimes a thermometer is needed when you are heating something up in the kitchen. This Digital Thermometer Pan has put a thermometer right in the pan with an easy to read display on the handle. Had I used one of these last night I probably would have made something decent rather then the burnt mess I had at the end. [Read more…]

A unique set of gadgets I came across today are the self shaking salt and pepper shakers. Two things are required to make these things work. First, you pull the cord and second you hold the shaker. When the cord pulls back in to the shaker it automatically shakes the shaker spewing out salt or pepper over your meal. What I don’t understand is the need for something like this. Surely the process of pulling the cord on the shaker is actually more hassle then just holding the shaker and shaking it your self?
The self shaking salt and pepper shaker set costs $9.95 and is available from calliopeboutique.
For those who eat a lot of rice, it is important to get the consistency right. Nobody wants soft, squidgy rice and likewise, nobody wants hard undercooked rice. A rice maker tends to sort out most of these problems for you if you measure the right quantities. A company named Satake are still not happy that the rice is just right though and have created a rice checking gadget which rates the rice and adjusts it accordingly. Measurements taken include the aroma, flavour, firmness and viscosity. Once the data is gathered the results out of 100 are given. At a hefty 5.775 million Yen from what I understand, that is just short of $55k USD which is about 54.9K more then I would be willing to spend on perfect rice. Clearly this is aimed at large producers rather then those who eat it.
