Is someone you love obsessed with kitchen gadgets? The geekier and more high-tech, the better? Maybe they fancy themselves a little bit of a mad scientist at the stove. We've got you covered.
This is what you need to buy them.
The Egg Tray That Texts You Updates
Do I want to have an app on my phone that tells me how many eggs are in my tray, sending me notices when they're getting old, and blinking lights letting me know which ones I should use up first? Yes. SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.
This Molecular Gastronomy Starter Kit Because OMG EDIBLE FOAMS
Is making ordinary food passe? This little kit has every object your mad scientist needs to get started making foods that will confound your brain. Well, except for a scale. Make sure you get them a nice digital scale too.
Is your crock pot not quite hands-off enough for you? It connects to your wifi and will happily send you updates and notices. You can control ALL of your crockpot's functions from wherever you are. And with regular updates via app, you will never sit there wondering if you turned on your crockpot again.
This Espresso Machine that Looks Like a Doomsday Device
Because, really, what kitchen mad scientist wouldn't want their own Doomsday Espresso maker? I am sorry to report that the company that made this no longer does. Perhaps we should petition for a second run.
This Refrigerator That You Can Control With Your Phone
Refrigerator. I command you to make more ice. Also: commence heating water for my tea.
GTFO crockpot. Cinder reaches 500F fast, uses the energy of a 60W lightbulb, and is accurate to within one degree increments. It's Bluetooth enabled. You can cook from the comfort of your iPad or smartphone while you're in the bathroom, if you want. This thing uses AI, laser beams, and high-tech sensors to grill your steaks, man. OK maybe no laser beams.
Anne is one of those people who usually speaks to others in memes, pop culture references, and SAT words. On those occasions she can be understood at all, she likes to entertain others with a sense of humour usually described by friends as “hilarious—once you get to know her.” Whenever she’s not talking about herself in the third person, Anne is a walking encyclopedia of random trivia and enjoys explaining high school science according to the kitchen. If you want to know why ice melts or pretzels turn brown; if you have a burning desire to know lots of unusual facts about carrots; or if you just simply have an obsessive need to make grocery store staples from scratch for the “been there, made that” achievement awards… she’s your blogger. You can find her nerding it up over on her home blog FoodRetro or on Twitter @foodretro.
