Anova Nano Sous-Vide Circulator

Anova’s original circulator brought sous-vide cooking to many homes. Their new Nano Sous-Vide Circulator will bring this method to even more. The compact device weighs (and costs) a fraction of most circulators, clamping onto the side of a pot and heating the water inside to within a tenth of a degree of the temperature to which it’s set. You can set it manually on its display, but it really shines when used in conjunction with Anova’s…

NerdChef Steel Pizza Stone

We won’t get too critical of traditional ceramic baking stones: after all, they’ve worked to make delicious, crispy pizzas for quite some centuries. But despite arguments in favor of ceramic due to moisture retention or the fact that it attains higher heat levels, it turns out that metal’s much higher thermal conductivity actually serves your pizza well, especially at the temperatures your home oven can attain (but don’t take…

Beyond Zero Liquor Ice Maker

Depending on who you ask, a touch of dilution can, very occasionally, serve certain spirits well. For all other drinks (and tastes) there’s the Beyond Zero Liquor Ice Maker, which literally puts liquor in the rocks. The freezer gets cold enough to freeze wine, cocktails, or even high-proof spirits like whisky and vodka, and makes ice in just a few minutes, with an optional freezer to store ice for later at temperatures a traditional freezer can’t…

Load one with a pizza — frozen or fresh — and pop it on any type of stovetop, or even a grill or campfire. Its high carbon steel construction soaks up heat and disperses it into the pizza, with a…

Stadler Made Outdoor Pizza Oven

Nothing wrong with electric ovens, but if you want to make real good pizza you’ll need something that gets hotter. The Stadler Made Outdoor Pizza Oven is just such an oven. Get a wood fire going and stoke it up to temperatures as high as 750 degrees Fahrenheit. Two integrated baking stones above and beneath the upper chamber absorb the heat and pass it onto the pizza (or whatever…

Millo Smoothie Maker

Dubbed a smart blender, the Millo Smoothie Maker promises to be the best designed blender you’ve ever laid eyes on. The small blender’s Air Drive system employs magnets to power the blade, eliminating three quarters of the noise of traditional blenders (and one of their biggest annoyances). Moreover the blending chamber and the cap that seals it — which also contains the blade — screw together and aren’t physically attached…

Creek Cutler Repurposed File Knives

The knurling on the knife handle and base of the blade isn’t just for show. It’s there because Creek Cutler’s Repurposed File Knives are, as their name indicates, reborn after serving a life in the form of a farrier or metal working file — though this patterning also conveniently serves to increase your grip on what’s an otherwise very sharp knife. The to-be-scrapped carbon steel files are forged, reheated, and…

Traeger Timberline Grill

Grilling typically requires a fair bit of attention. The Traeger Timberline Grill finally changes that. Though you can still use it as a standard hardwood barbecue or smoker, the Timberline features Traeger’s WiFire controller (see that boxy screen-equipped unit on the right?) that gives you the ability to control temperature and set timers from anywhere using your smartphone and an app (though it won’t flip your burgers for you just…

Royal North Company Wooden Tumblers

They’re certainly not dishwasher safe, though we’d gladly hand wash Royal North Company’s Wooden Tumblers in exchange for drinking from these gorgeous whiskey tumblers. Each is handcrafted using a wood lathe and a hunk of solid Canadian birch, then finished with food-safe oil and a coating of an (importantly) alcohol-resistant water-based topcoat.

Nuni Tortilla Toaster

Tortillas are big. Sequentially flipping through a bunch to get them warm and toasty is a time consuming task that the Nuni Tortilla Toaster, fortunately, completely eliminates. Nuni toasts both sides of up to six 6-inch tortillas (of either the corn, flour, or wheat variety) simultaneously in about a minute to your desired shade of darkness. When the cycle’s done, the toaster’s inner frame rotates downwards to release the crispy…

W&P Design Clear Ice Mold

It foregoes quantity for quality, making only one cube of ice at a time. The single cube coming out of W&P Design’s Clear Ice Mold, though, is nearly crystal clear, made possible by a slow, top-down freezing process controlled by the mold’s insulated sleeve. Less air pockets also means a slightly slower melting rate, diluting your drink less than traditional ice so you can really nurse it, should you choose…

Chances are slim that whatever martini glass you’re currently sipping from starts as a 25 pound block of 303 stainless steel. The Adamantini Indestructible Martini Glass does and that’s just the reason it’s basically unbreakable, even if you tend to clink glasses real hard. Milled down and hollowed each Adamantini still weighs just over a pound and holds 8 ounces of your preferred cocktail. Since it’s bottom-heavy a relatively small base stabilizes the glass…
