The Thermapen's price just about kills me, it really does. I like to review products that are genuinely useful in the kitchen, but I hate any trace of brand snobbery or implication that you must have some expensive tool in order to cook. So, let me just state up front that I am not saying you need the Thermapen to cook well. But, nevertheless, this incredibly useful thermometer sure will help you out. Depending on how you cook, this pricey little tool may be worth every single penny.
Any miniature is on our list of things we love and the miniature multi-tier cakes these pans produce are no different. We're not sure why miniature is better — but we're not going to argue with these cute little cakes. Seriously, who doesn't like mini cakes?
I'm pacing the miles (literally miles!) of aisles in Chicago's McCormick Place today and tomorrow, scanning the thousands of products on display at the Home & Housewares Show. Nearly everyone who makes or sells something for the kitchen and the home is here this week, and while there is a lot of useless stuff on display, it's also a pleasure to check out quality products in person. Here's one great product: An update to Chicago Metallic's high-quality toaster oven bakeware line.
Yesterday we showed you some really awesome heart-shaped pans for Valentine's Day; they're great for whipping up something special for your loved ones. Here's another option to dress up cupcakes — always a go-to baked good. A great way to make them look even better is to pick up a Valentine's cupcake set.
Valentine's Day is one of our favorite holidays and we look forward to it each year. There are so many different ways to surprise the loves in our lives — but what's better than food? Even better: Food baked in a heart-shaped pan. Who could resist such a kitschy kiss from the kitchen?
We're heading into Valentine's Day and soon everything will be awash with red and white and pink. We thought we'd give our eyes a rest today and focus on the pretty patterns created from blue and white stripes. Ah, so cool and refreshing!
We're big fans of the kitchen scale here at The Kitchn. We've posted several articles on what scale to purchase, how and why to use it, and it's mentioned frequently in comments from our readers. Do you own a kitchen scale? How often do you use it? Take our survey below!
Casserole pans are necessary elements of every cook's arsenal. I am in the habit of only using cast iron pans when baking casseroles, but stainless steel has a lot to offer too. I just spotted this All-Clad Shallow Casserole Pan and knew it was a winner right away.
We always feel a lot of pressure when we agree to bake a dish for a party. Not only do we need to come up with a killer recipe, but we also need to think about how in the heck we're going to get it there in one piece. Casseroles are always tricky because even though they may come with a lid — there's a major heat element that needs to be addressed. Good thing there are reliable, creative and modern casserole carriers.
