Consuming your daily intake of water can be quite a task if you aren’t drinking specifically out of a bottle measuring them. Sure, you can drink multiple 16 ounce plastic cups daily, but what if you wanted a more accurate estimation of how much H20 you drink? There’s a smart bottle on the market that might be able to help.
Every year CES in Las Vegas is fueled by a lot of things you might not think of: Long nights, early mornings, shared cab rides, and plenty of alcohol. So when we stopped by the Bartesian booth, it was a match made in heaven.
A leader in smart kitchen appliances and makers of the best Precision Cooker I’ve seen to date, Anova has taken to CES in Las Vegas to unveil four new products to its line of precision cooking devices.
If you have a trash can that you may have picked up at a department store for cheap, only to get it home and realize that not only does it not fit your bags — leaving your trash bags wasted thanks to angled corners and being short at the bottom — you should check out the simplehuman rectangular trash can.
Have you ever been in the kitchen cooking dinner, and once you’ve finished you looked around your stove top only to see food residue and grime stuck between the stove top and counter, and splattered on the walls? There’s a new product that might eliminate that extra cleaning you need to check out.
Still looking for that perfect gift for the cook/gardener/crafts person in your life? How about the Techie Apron from Great Useful Stuff? When I first saw the press release announcing it I immediately thought it would be a useful item for my wife and she could buy me one, too.
If you enjoy drinking wine, then you likely have a corkscrew kept in your kitchen or bar drawer. While a corkscrew can get the bottle opened, The WineOvation Bowling Pin Powered Bottle Opener makes the whole process a little more automated and a lot more fun.
We’ve got two TCL 4K Roku-enabled televisions in our house, and I feel like TCL is one of those brands that isn’t yet well-known, but they should be. TCL products are extremely well made, they work exactly as promised, and they are generally well priced.
Chefs and home cooks alike need their tools to be both quick and accurate. Maverick Industries checks both of those boxes with their PT-100 Pro-Temp Commercial Thermometer. This digital thermometer with a foldout probe, half-inch white LED digits, accuracy to within 2 degrees Fahrenheit and 1 degree Celsius and a response time of 3-4 seconds, carries an MSRP of $99.99.
As the manager of a nice home bar, I always look for unique and fun items to add. One way to give your bar some flare and give great gifts are bottle openers and shot glasses. Lucky Shot USA offers hand crafted goods made from fired military munitions. They personalized two items for me to review, let’s take a look!
I like to joke about having a black thumb, but the truth of the matter is that ever since I got a Click & Grow Smart Herb Garden, I’ve been feeling a lot better about my gardening prowess.
If you didn’t make it to CE Week last week, then you missed a great series of panels, including mine on Robots, Printers, and Games that featured Davin Sufer, CTO of WowWee; Kilian Saekel, Founder of A-Champs; and Max Bouge, Co-Founder and CEO of Wobbleworks — best panel ever!
If you are setting up your kitchen or bar for the first time, then you know that there are quite a few tools that will need to go into your drawer including a citrus press, a corkscrew, a bottle opener, and a jigger. The Barbarian has all of that built into one very clever, well-built bar tool and more!
We’ve all got a bottle opener or two in our kitchen drawer, but most of them are pretty straightforward: bottle opener on one end, can opener on the other end. Barbarian Bar Tools’ Simple Tool can open your bottles and cans, but it also has a few other tricks up its sleeve.
If you use sponges (or O-Cell-O pads) in your home, then you probably have two: one that you use on dishes and countertops and one that gets used in places like the toilet, floor, or worse. The Spongester is a simple two-tiered stainless steel rack that stores your sponges so they can dry, keeping them clean and most importantly — separated.
When I moved into my own apartment back in January I initially planned to eat all of my meals either out or as prepackage, already prepared food. I quickly found that this was not healthy nor financially wise. That’s why I was excited to check out Hello Fresh, their food delivery service, and their new iPad app. I’m a fan!…
With Memorial Day coming up in the next few weeks, one thing is for certain, everyone will be out grilling. If you’re not grilling steaks, vegetables, chicken, you name it, I’m sure you know someone that will be. But obviously there’s a lot to perfecting your favorite meals and making sure that NY Strip is actually cooked to order.

Last year I wrote about Keurig’s new version 2.0 K-cup brewer, and how they were including digital rights management like features into it that would prevent owners from using any other K-cup except “approved” ones. This has been worked around by many, but this free Freedom Clip from Roger’s Coffee has managed to make it easy to defeat this technology.
True story: a great deal of the gifts I got for family and friends this year came from either Kickstarter or Quirky, and if this keyboard waffle iron had only been available in time, I know exactly who I would have given it to! It wasn’t, but for $60 I’ve backed it, and I’ll be ready for next year!
I’ve wanted “The Ex” Voodoo Knife Holder set since I first saw the red one years ago, but … for whatever reason I held back, and now I’m glad I did. The original was made of plastic, and its blades were made in China. This Kickstarter project brings ‘The Ex’ to us in a solid metal stand with German blades.
