Anyone Can Be a Brew Master with the PicoU — Even You!

If you read my review series on the PicoBrew S, then you probably thought that being able to brew beer on your kitchen counter was pretty cool — but that price tag, though! $799 is a lot to invest if you’re just a hobby brewer, but now Pico has come out with a sub-$200 solution for everyone, the Pico U.


Bison Airlighter 420 Gets You Cooking With(out) Gas Quicker

As much fun as this looks, a garden torch probably isn’t the safest and best way to light a barbecue grill. I have used a torch hooked up to a propane tank in the past, but despite my friend’s enthusiasm in this photo, I’ve found a better way: The Bison Airlighter 420. Here’s why The Bison is a significant improvement.


Misen 10″ Skillet: The Perfect Pan for Your Kitchen Arsenal

A good stainless skillet, one with either a copper or aluminum core, can last a lifetime. Stainless steel is non-reactive, meaning that you can cook anything in it, and it keeps its shine forever.

Frywall Is Shark Tank Promoted and Raina Approved

When we saw the Frywall on Shark Tank, Raina said, “That’s genius! I want one of those.” I neglected to order one, and the next time she cooked the kitchen was covered with oil. So I ordered one from Amazon. At $21.95 for the 10″ and $28.95 for the 12″, it is pricey, but it does exactly what it promises.



Simplehuman Lets You Talk to Your Trash Can, and It’s Amazing

It turns out that hands-free garbage cans are kind of life-changing. To that effect, I’ve been using simplehuman’s first gen sensor can for nearly 7 years. Of everything in my kitchen, it’s my simple human garbage can that impresses people the most. Let’s just say that once you get used to having an automated garbage can, you can’t go back.
