We’re not quite to the Jetson’s era of producing a meal at the touch of a button, but we might be close. This virtual countertop, developed by a grad student at the University of Washington and Intel researchers, can identify ingredients, suggest recipes, and guide you through steps. In short: everything but the cooking.
Q: We're currently remodeling our house and we're fixing up the kitchen. I'm trying to decide on a faucet for the kitchen. I know I really like the 'spray' feature, but I don't know if there are any tips I should be keeping in mind?
Whether it's for storage or aesthetics, there are a few places that a good ol' grid may pop up in the kitchen. The grid is an organizational tool and a strong visual pattern that we found all over these kitchens:
Last summer we brought you a tour of a new restaurant opened by blogger Molly (of Orangette) and her husband Brandon. Delancey, their Seattle pizza restaurant, has become quite a hit. We were enamored of the interior design (as well as the menu) and we just discovered that the great pendant lights installed throughout the restaurant are now available via their designers.
This past weekend my kitchen got a facelift: New lighting! We removed the old, barely functional, and extremely ugly fluorescent lighting fixtures under the cabinets, and replaced them with new xenon light strips. How did it go, and how do they work?

It was quite a kick to learn this week that we had been nominated for one of Saveur Magazine's Best Food Blog awards. Seems they like our coverage of kitchen gear (thank you, Saveur!) so I thought I might pull out some of those categories from the blog so you can see for yourself how we have you covered in the gear department.
So, we just encouraged you to get rid of unnecessary kitchen paraphernalia, and any product reviews we do here at The Kitchn are done with the Cure in mind! We examine products in our own kitchens, asking, is this helpful, wellmade, and beautiful? That was the question we approached this WellnessMat with. We have reviewed several gel mats now, and this time our question was really: Are gel mats worth the high price tag?
Earlier this week we asked you if you had ever considered replacing the faucet in a rental kitchen. We realized this could be a simple way to upgrade our kitchen, and this week we did it as our Kitchen Cure special project! It was remarkably easy and straightforward, and we can't believe we didn't do this sooner. Here's a look at the process of replacing a faucet; anyone can do it!
A few weeks ago, we noticed a phantom stinky odor in our kitchen. It wasn't the trash. It wasn't the fridge. We finally traced it to the garbage disposal! Here's what we learned about getting it clean and keeping it fresh:
