This Smart Countertop Grill Has All the Chef Skills You Don't

When the microwave was first introduced it seemed like it would be the perfect all-in-one kitchen appliance that made cooking as easy as setting a timer. But rubbery meats, scalding hot beverages, and soggy pizza slices proved otherwise. The Cinder Sensing Cooker, however, could very well be the perfect kitchen… » 3/05/15 6:30am Yesterday 6:30am

This melted wheel of cheese looks like the best way to eat cheese

Because I'm an uncultured American whose definition of cheese is Velveeta and whose idea of bread begins and ends with wonderment, I could never dream up the magic that is a Raclette. I would never be so bold to melt a wheel of cheese and be so daring to spread that gooey goodness onto toast. » 3/04/15 11:41pm Wednesday 11:41pm

A Yellow Submarine Butter Spreader Is the Best Thing To Happen To Corn

When you're a kid, corn on the cob is one of the best meals imaginable because it's really just an excuse to eat pure melted butter. But wrangling a chunk of that golden goodness onto a hot piece of corn fresh off the grill is a tricky task that's made a lot easier with this butter spreader that also happens to make… » 3/02/15 5:00pm Monday 5:00pm

A gun machine that shoots dumplings together would be the greatest thing

The world should put together all their brain power and weapons experts and artillery and dumpling ammo so that we can make this dumpling gun machine happen. Imagine a world where at a push of a button we can shoot out the perfect amount of meat, spice it, wrap it and cook it in less than 2 seconds. » 2/27/15 8:41pm 2/27/15 8:41pm

Chef magically cuts a carrot into an elaborate net

On good days, my knife skills could be considered rudimentary. On most other days though, I'm probably a danger to myself. So never in my wildest dreams would I ever think that I could pull this sorcery off: turn a regular carrot into a perfectly webbed net by strategically cutting it with a knife. The chef is a… » 2/23/15 11:36pm 2/23/15 11:36pm

A pho burger looks way more delicious than a ramen burger

The good people at Foodbeast created a new frankenfood that tops the ramen burger in my eyes (and more importantly to my tastebuds): the pho burger. Made with deep fried rice noodle buns, Vietnamese style cole slaw and a juicy patty, it looks like a fantastic combination of the ingredients of Pho but in burger form. » 2/19/15 9:36pm 2/19/15 9:36pm

A Pen That Writes In Chocolate Is Just About the Best Thing Ever

Bic has been churning out ballpoint pens and other writing instruments since 1945, but to date the company's R&D department hasn't come up with an innovation in writing as ground-breaking as Skyrocket Toys' Candy Craft Chocolate Pen. If you're having trouble understanding why it's so awesome, let us reiterate: it's a… » 2/13/15 2:26pm 2/13/15 2:26pm

Making pasta by hand is a relaxing, beautiful process

I know Chef Evan Funke of Bucato is making pasta in this video—I see it and it's absolutely beautiful—but it almost looks like he's playing a musical instrument. There's so much skill in his work and so much grace in his movements that I can't help but feel like I'm watching an artist at work. » 2/12/15 11:30pm 2/12/15 11:30pm

Watching dumplings get made is deliciously therapeutic 

I didn't wake up craving dumplings today. But after reading about this epic dumpling crawl in Lucky Peach and seeing Momofuku's David Chang post videos about dumplings and then learning a brief history about dumplings and watching them get made in the video above, well, damn. I'm really craving dumplings now. » 2/12/15 1:06am 2/12/15 1:06am
