Kitchen On A Table And The Wall

Kitchen On A Table And The Wall

Constrains like limited space and behavioral changes like cooking while entertaining have dictated the transition from monstrous-sized kitchens to neat compact kitchenettes and open modular concepts. Adopting these changes, Electrolux brings to us to two unique concepts. The Rendez-vous interactive table is a cook-top that allows you to do jiffy cooking and entertain at the same time. The Volare, akin to the Lounge Bar, is a wall mounted appliance that’s nothing short of an artistic kitchen! Check out the details after the jump.

Rectify the situation with an anti-smoke alarm; welcome Smokey the Remote Smoke Alarm Silencer! No more hurrying to remove batteries of the alarm.

Addictive Measure

Addictive Measure

I’m an instant coffee freak for the simple reason that I don’t have the patience to actually roast and brew my cup. But given a moment of insanity, I’d like to be doing the shindig on this fancy Coffee Maker by Tom Metcalfe. The guy makes it almost a ceremonial process of roasting, grinding and brewing of fresh green beans!

Creative Tea Drinking

Creative Tea Drinking

Tea drinking and brewing is an art form often patronized on YD. Adding to our growing list is this delightful Turtle Tea Kettle. The kettle doesn’t discriminate against loose-leaf, teabags and compressed-tea, tea drinkers’ coz its comfy enough brewing any of these sorts. The added advantage of a separate glass container for the loose tealeaves makes sure you don’t get any debris while sipping your drink. If the creative-cook gets the better of you; heck you can even use the kettle to brew up some exotic hot beverage and treat yourself!

Air-dry Dishes

Air-dry Dishes

We recently discussed how Ultra Violet can be a great way of sterilizing kitchen cutting boards and now it’s time to discuss its benefits in a dishwasher. UV plays a key role in the Electrolux Wind Washer Dishwasher, which comprises of a three-step procedure. In step one, it uses a stream of high-pressure air to blow away all the leftover food crumbs on the dishes, to a waste holding bay. In step two, it steams them to degrease them. In the final stage, it uses UV to sterilize them.

Spicy Hot Book

Spicy Hot Book

Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsay, Anthony Bourdain; all my favorite men will agree with me when I say that it’s the spices that you add to the cooking that make or break the dish. Like most Asians, my kitchen too is stocked up with a variety of spices and I really miss my collection when I’m on vacation, cooking in my holiday-home kitchenette. Anyways, my point is that packing the spices is always a bother, which is why I leave most of them at home, but looks like with the MUJI taste-leaf book I won’t have to compromise on flavors anymore.

Cutting Board Woes

Cutting Board Woes

A surefire way of sanitizing your kitchen cutting board is to add chlorine to the rinsing water every once in a while; sadly who’s got the time for it! We basically soap it thoroughly and rinse it off hoping that the bacteria are washed away and are not having a picnic out there! About 76 million cases of food-borne illness, most of which are caused by bacteria inhabiting uncooked food or contaminated cooking surfaces, are reported every year. Hopefully the UV enabled Alkeo will not let us become another statistic.

Stereovision for Real 3D Funiture!

Stereovision for Real 3D Funiture!

Wait a second… isn’t that already 3D? Behold the devastating addition of 4 legs to an already-4-legged-table. Brutality! Redundancy! So many extra legs! And what’s the deal with this red and blue here? It’s a “Stereovision Table,” and it’s made for those with a sense of irony in technology. But is it the same sort of deal as using a rotary phone? Or is it just silly?

Cooking Is All About The Flavors

Cooking Is All About The Flavors

Sous-vide is a method of cooking that retains the strong flavors of the ingredients by heating them for an extended period of time at relatively low temperatures. The flip side is that it needs to be performed under carefully controlled conditions to avoid botulism poisoning. Here is a look at a sophisticated iteration of this cooker that promises to maintain the intense flavors and cook some very tender meat.

Are You Up For Some Molecular Cooking?

Are You Up For Some Molecular Cooking?

I know that Molecular gastronomy is a scientific discipline involving the study of physical and chemical processes that occur in cooking, but this is the first time I’m coming across a device that actually allows you to do some Molecular Cooking! Consisting of a whip syphon, vaporizer and blow torch the “Moleculars” is something that would make an adventurous cook pretty happy in the kitchen. Experimentation would be the name of the game.
