The latest oven from Ooni can cook pizzas in around 60 seconds, perfectly sear steaks, roast vegetables, and much more. Starting at $599, you can be cooking with gas!
Using a slab of aluminum to more quickly defrost your frozen meats is nothing new, yet it’s not something that many of us think to do. PDAir sent me a couple of their Energy Source Defrosting Trays to try. Two different styles; each has its own merits. Let’s take a look.

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.
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.
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. I was sent the Misen 10″ skillet to try; Misen skillets are made of 5-ply stainless with an aluminum core for better heat conductivity and retention.
If you’re not familiar with Corkcicle, they are the creators of some of the best products for carrying your favorite beverage either at home or on the go. But if you are the type who enjoys drinking your whiskey while smoking a cigar at the same time, you need to check out their Cigar Glass.
When it comes to great home and kitchen accessories that make cooking and meal prep more efficient, I always look to Gourmia. They have everything from Sous Vide Immersion Circulators to pressure cookers, so there’s something for everyone.

There’s nothing more frustrating than not having the right knife for the job when cooking, and it’s important that those knives be razor-sharp, well-balanced, and comfortable to hold while chopping and slicing. If you’re discouraged by the prices charged for a good set of name-brand knives, then you should check out the Misen 03 Essentials Knife Set.
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.
The Titan Trash Compactor by Joseph Joseph is everything you’ll love from a standard trash can, with an additional solution to making full use of the trash bag that you insert in it.
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.
With more than 4,000 companies exhibiting at CES, choosing the best of CES was a challenge. Even so, we want to recognize the products we saw that are truly innovative, take technology in new directions or, in one case, make something great accessible to every consumer.

Their sleek and functional Ninja Coffee Bar provided the energy we desperately needed while the Shark IONFlex 2X DuoClean vacuum effortlessly restored order in the house.
With temperatures in the teens, a delicious, hot cup of coffee is a “must.” We usually grab the pre-ground coffee, put it into a drip coffee maker, add water, and go. But while drip coffee makers are convenient, if you want a rich, full-bodied coffee it takes a bit more effort. Bialetti offers some great products coffee-lovers will love.
In some areas of life, “winging it” isn’t always the most effective option. You don’t guess at how much gas your car needs, so why are you guessing at the quantities of ingredients in your food?
When I travel, I inevitably end up in my hotel room with leftovers I’ve brought back from some restaurant. My intentions are good — I’m trying to not waste food from the meal I had, but 9-times-out-of-10 I don’t have anything to eat the leftovers with. I keep a Full Windsor Muncher Multi-Utensil in my checked luggage now: problem solved.

I do a lot of holiday cooking, and it doesn’t take much for my oven and stove-top to overflow.
