American Press Coffee Maker

The American Press is a single-serve coffee maker created by a guy named Alex Albanese, with a design that falls somewhere between an AeroPress and a classic French press. Here’s how it works: You fill the internal brew basket with your coffee grounds of choice (medium-fine to coarse works best). This “pod” has micro-mesh filters […]

Induxpert 1800-Watt Portable Induction Cooktop

I feel like I’ve been talking about Andrew Rea’s Binging With Babish YouTube cooking show a lot lately. Will I apologize for it though? Nope! If you watch his show, you’ll notice that the Induxpert 1800-watt induction cooker appears in most of the episodes. I presume he picked one of these up because it was […]

OXO Good Grips Twisting Tea Ball

For most of my life I’ve brewed tea primarily with teabags. It’s only been more in the last year or so that I’ve discovered the joys of loose-leaf teas, namely because 1) they’re fresher and thus taste better, and 2) they’re less wasteful. Brewing loose-leaf tea requires a little more in the way of gear […]

The Field Cast Iron Skillet [Kickstarter]

Yeah, yeah, we’ve praised the benefits of cast iron many times around here. Maybe you’re sick of hearing about it by now. But there’s a Kickstarter project we’re particularly excited about, and couldn’t help sharing it with you: The Field Skillet. These guys are trying to take on the likes of Finex and Lodge with […]

Cuisinart’s 3-in-1 burger press is useful for making burgers of all kinds. You can shape regular patties up to ¾ lb, or use it to make stuffed burger patties filled with whatever you like, or use the smaller insert for making sliders. It’s also nonstick and dishwasher-safe, plus it’s small enough you can easily bring […]

Science Flask Salt Pepper Shakers

A kitchen is, by its very nature, something of a science lab. These “science flask” salt and pepper shakers by Wild Eye Designs make it actually look that way. Aside from their obvious flask shapes (which are 4″ tall and 2″ wide at the base), they’re both marked with periodic table-style labels to tell them […]

PUR Classic 11-cup Water Filter Pitcher

As a family who lives in a travel trailer full-time, we end up being connected to various water sources at campgrounds and RV parks around the country. Sometimes the water’s fine; other times…not so much. We’ve been guilty of buying water jugs or large packs of bottled water and sticking those in the fridge, rather […]

Nahla Pure “Fridge Pure Max” Icemaker Water Filter

It ain’t the most glamorous item in the world, but if you’re sick of dealing with stinky, bad-tasting ice from your fridge, you’ll want a good inline water filter like the Nahla Pure “Fridge Pure Max”. It’s relatively easy to install and does a great job removing contaminants over the course of 5,000 gallons (approx. […]
