Perry and Greg have reviewed and enjoyed using Meater Thermometers. The Meater+ is the company’s latest Bluetooth-enabled thermometer that extends the range from the device to your phone to up to 165′. With it, you can monitor both internal and ambient temperatures while your meat is cooking on the grill or in the oven — without you having to hover. Because one thermometer is never enough, they’re offering substantial discounts when you buy multiples.

Check out my video below to see how to season your Carbon Steel.
Stargazer Cast Iron was founded when CEO Peter Huntley began his search for the perfect cast iron skillet. As a passionate home chef, he found that modern cast iron pans lacked innovation and vintage quality while actual high-quality vintage cast iron was only available at exorbitant prices. In 2015, the Stargazer Cast Iron skillet was born in Peter’s garage.

I gave up Diet Cokes a few years ago, for many reasons.

With the Spärkel Carbonator, I can now make my own flavored carbonated drinks at home.

Lately, I’ve become a huge fan of one-pot meals. There are fewer dishes to use or clean, and everything gets tossed in at the same time. Typically when you think of one-pot meals, “Instant Pots” or “Pressure Cookers” come to mind. But if you want to cook a tad bit faster and don’t mind using your stovetop to get the same results, you should really check out Zavor’s Stovetop Pressure Cooker.
