This Glass Toaster Costs $1000 -- But It Can Cook Steak

It’s fair to say, not all toasters are created equal. But the Bugatti Noun is a god amongst toasters, a futurist but elegant combination of glass and chrome that would stand out in any kitchen. And it does more than just toast.


Oreo Fed Me Strange Cookie-Concocted Recipes And I Didn't Die

Traditionally, you’d eat an Oreo straight of the box, or sometimes very recently dipped in a glass of milk. The people at Oreo felt the need to show that their biscuit is more diverse than that, however, so they put it in a bunch of weird recipes and made me eat the result in order to prove something about the future.

3D-Printed Adaptor Turns Bamboo Skewers Into An Easy-Clean Whisk

If there’s one tool that’s a necessary evil in your kitchen it’s the whisk. Its ability to blend and whip is matched only by its resistance to being cleaned. But if you have access to a 3D printer and a bag of bamboo skewers, this simple adaptor could mean you’ll never have to clean out the nook and crannies on a whisk ever again.


Cleaning This Flexible Metal Grater Looks Super Easy

A box grater provides more stability and grip when you’re turning a chunk of cheddar into shredded cheese, but they pose some challenges when it comes to cleaning and storage.

Is Google Glass The Future Of Home Cooking?

I know I will never use Google Glass until it becomes an invisible part of my eyeglasses, but I just realised that teaching people how to cook may be a great application for it.

You’re already staring down a sink full of dirty dishes after cooking dinner, the last thing you need is to have to clean the stove too after a pot boils over.

These Cabinets Hide An Incredible Stealth Kitchen

When you live in a closet-sized city apartment, it’s no fun to cook in a teeny, tiny cramped kitchen. But a kitchen completely hidden behind lovely wood cabinets when not in use? That’s kind of ingenious.


The Untold History Of The Easy-Bake Oven

I have a confession: My brother and I destroyed my Easy-Bake Oven. I had the 1981 Mini-Wave model, the boxy, yellow microwave style, which was, in my seven-year-old mind, the only kind of Easy-Bake there was. One day, my four-year-old brother had a brilliant idea — to “cook” a green plastic steak from our 1972 Mattel Tuff Stuff Play Food set. After all, we should be able to cook a steak, right?
