There are ingredients, and then there are Vitamix ingredients. I was skeptical, but as a friend of my Gear colleague Joe Ray, a Vitamix made me a mixed person. Blender, in fact, is the engine page at the top of the engine. Everything else just stays in the way. Engine is why Vitamix is so good. And yes, it is expensive, but it is worth it. This is not the best we’ve ever seen, but it’s the best we’ve seen this year.
Nothing like home-made ice cream. We haven’t tried this 2-quart model, but I’ve used a smaller version, and it was pretty good. It is especially fun if you have kids who can make their own ice cream cones.
One of our favorite tea shops sells all over the place. I really like this tumbler, which acts like alcohol and keeps your tea warm for several hours. This alliance also gives you three examples of tea. You will also get free shipping (unless you are in Alaska or Hawaii).
This is in our guide to The Best Cooking Knives, and it was the most common knife in every restaurant I worked with. It is lightweight, fits well with the edges, and since the blade is thinner and softer than most European knives, it is easier to sharpen.
Want to have a backyard party? Ooni’s pizza ovens are the best we have tried. They are all for sale, so it is important that you do not download the site yourself, but we think the best thing is Karu 12 multifuel oven. It gives you the opportunity to use wood or charcoal when flavor is needed, or switch to gas whenever you want a hamburger quickly.
Take the kitchen outside with Solo’s Ranger fire pit. We love Only Yukon, but it is much larger. This low-cost model offers the best (and smokeless) fire extinguishers, the lowest. It is best to roast marshmallows after a good barbecue.
Fly by Jing’s Sichuan Chili Crisp is hard to describe. It is spicy but not very spicy. It is fat but not too fat. It’s smoky, it’s delicious, and there are a few peppercorns that make it fun. It goes well with Nutrition, soup, pizza, and eggs, but some online sources swear that the sauce goes well with peanut butter or ice cream. WRED comments Julian Chokkattu loves it.
Cooking is fun and playful, but one has to clean up as well. Make their life (or yours) easier with this smart scrubber from Japan. I have a few, because it is good to clean other things – mud shoes, kitchen sinks, even burnt caramel – and they usually do not leave scars (said, always try in an unknown place).
