The Sushi Bazooka extrudes tubes of rice and neta ready for wrapping

With sushi now practically a staple at food courts around the world, it’s not hard to find this Japanese form of fast food when out and about. But if you’re looking to do it yourself at home and don’t trust your rolling skills or are a novice with a bamboo rolling mat then the Sushi Bazooka could be a welcome addition to your kitchen arsenal.  Read More

A Nomiku immersion circulator held by one of the designers

Sous-vide cooking is one of the crown jewels of molecular gastronomy. Far from "boil-in-a-bag," sous-vide cooking holds ingredients sealed within a plastic pouch at a truly constant (and low) temperature for hours or days. The resulting food is tender, moist, and other-worldly delicious. Unfortunately, this technique has long been priced out of the home kitchen market, with professional units starting around US$1,500 and from there going into the stratosphere. The Nomiku company changes all that, providing a sous-vide accessory about the size of a hand blender. The price? US$359 retail.  Read More

The GrillComb promises an easier grilling experience

Some pieces of everyday kit are just begging for an update. The shish kebab skewer is one of those pieces. Despite being the tool for delicious, juicy grilled meat, fish and vegetables, a little tweaking could make the skewer a lot more functional. The GrillComb provides a solid dose of said tweaking.  Read More

The creators of the Chapul Bar consider eating insects a way of conserving resources

After a successful Kickstarter campaign, a protein snack bar made from crickets is set for an August launch. Chapul claims its bar is the first in the world to use the ubiquitous summer chirpers as a source of protein. And they're not necessarily as gross as they sound.  Read More

The CyberQ Wi-Fi system allows users to control their barbecue using their mobile device

Although barbecuing can be fun, the person doing the grilling is usually stuck having to hover around the barbecue, checking the meat and adjusting the cooking temperature accordingly. BBQ Guru is attempting to change that situation, with its new CyberQ Wi-Fi. Using included probes, the system monitors the temperature of the barbecue itself and up to three pieces of meat that are cooking within it, then sends that data to the backyard chef via their mobile device or PC – they can then remotely adjust the barbecue’s settings as needed.  Read More

The Element works with both gas and electric ranges

For many people, grilling is an activity that's limited to the warmer months, when clear weather makes preparing dinner outside both practical and enjoyable. Once the weather turns, the rain cover comes out and grilling is over. The Element Indoor Smokeless BBQ brings grilling inside, where people can enjoy it year round.  Read More

It doesn't look all that appetizing, but it gives you more control than the average Mexica...

A 3D printer that pops out steaming hot burritos before your very eyes? That sounds like the plot of the next stoner movie turned cult hit. In this case, though, it's actually the thesis project of an NYU masters student. And it's fast becoming a reality.  Read More

In the past, we've seen 3D scanning widely used in a variety of industries - clothing retail, law enforcement, medical education, etc. - but it's still a little surprising to see the same technology applied to a slab of meat. Nantsune's new Libra 165C meat slicer does exactly that however, capturing a 3D image of a piece of meat, ready to be butchered, and then using the data to make slices at the same precise weight every time.  Read More

The Darwin BBQ is a compact portable barbecue that's housed inside a briefcase

Picture a scene in a sitcom where some character arrives at a beach party dressed in a suit and tie, and carrying a briefcase. Everyone thinks that they’re some un-fun fuddy duddy, until they open their briefcase to reveal that there’s a barbecue inside! Woo-hoo! Well, that’s the idea behind the real-life Darwin BBQ.  Read More

Beyond Meat has launched plant-based protein strips that emulate the flavor and texture of...

A new brand of plant-based protein food that promises to look, feel, taste and act like chicken meat has hit the stores in the US with a promise to offer a tasty alternative to animal-based food. Beyond Meat is the brainchild of Ethan Brown, an entrepreneur who was brought up on a dairy farm in Maryland USA, whose first-hand experience with animal agriculture led him to adopt a vegan lifestyle. Frustrated with the options available, he decided to search for a better plant-based, processed vegan option to replace meat.  Read More
