Really cool NYT article forwarded to me by a friend on TECHNOLOGY in the kitchen. Fun, useful, innovative technology for your kitchen is everywhere now. And being a guy who likes his toys and likes to cook, my pocketbook is in danger at every turn into a Williams Sonoma or Sur La Table.
I’ve posted some of my thoughts on necessary equipment HERE, but holy smokes there are so many UNnecessary awesome things to make for a happy kitchen. I love the rice cooker that they feature in this article. I think a rice cooker is a nice item for your kitchen appliance repertoire. I have two. A smaller (and less expensive) version of the Zojirushi in the article. Many, many options for cooking things other than rice. And the “fuzzy logic” makes for perfect rice everytime. I also have a small 4 cup Cuisinart rice cooker and steamer.
LOVE the thermometers that they feature. I’ve got a large remote sensor thermometer and a small pocket-sized instant digital. Both of the one listed look great and I especially love the Smartphone app as your remote link. The Thermaworks company also looks like they have a ton of great products. In my opinion, despite the fact that I’d rather HAVE the Thermapen instant read or the Bluetooth one, the SuperFast Instant read for $19 is unbeatable.
Go buy some TECH! Cheers!
