Smart Cooking Thermometer
If your smart phone never leaves your side, this is the gadget for you! The thermometer syncs to your phone, letting you easily monitor grilling, cooking, or even candy-making from wherever you are. Sounds smart in theory, but you'll really appreciate the genius behind it when you don't have to open the grill a dozen times to check your barbecued chicken or keep reinserting the thermometer to guess when your Thanksgiving turkey's ready. It also keeps record of everything you make and can post to social media.
No-Spill Ice Cube Tray
Especially in the summer, we don't go anywhere without a water bottle, and we're constantly refilling our ice trays. Instead of cubes, this brilliant tray makes ice sticks, perfect for slipping into narrow water bottles! Thanks to a silicone lid, spills en route to the fridge are a thing of the past. It also protects against spills in the freezer if the tray sits at an angle.
Homemade Butter Maker
Churning your own butter may seem like a thing of the past, but this butter maker offers a modern take on the process. A beechwood dasher beats room temperature cream, transforming it into fresh, silky butter in just minutes. Up the taste by adding herbs, zests, or spices to make flavorful butters suited to your preference. You may still turn to the convenient sticks from the grocery store for cooking and baking, but homemade butter will be your new go-to for smearing on fresh muffins and warm biscuits.
Removing tough stems from kale or Swiss chard is a necessary but bothersome task. That's where this handy little gadget comes in, zipping through a whole head of greens in no time! Holes of assorted diameters fit a variety of sizes (even the skinny stems of herbs, such as rosemary and thyme) to quickly discard stems. As an added bonus, the tool is dishwasher-safe.
Hinged Utensil Rest
Every home chef has been there: cooking an entree while simultaneously stirring a sauce and sauteing a side dish. One spoon rest is never enough! This clever product was worth the wait. Made of rust-proof stainless steel and nylon hinges, it's a keeper. Bonus: It pivots and collapses to save space. Just toss it in a drawer after washing!
