How Safe Is Sous-Vide Cooking?Skills
Fear of the unknown is a common facet of human nature, and that’s definitely true when it comes to what we eat. So it’s no surprise that the popularization of sous-vide cooking has been met with a degree of suspicion. In fact, I’d be surprised if every historical food innovation hadn’t been met with similar resistance. Perhaps at some point in the hazy days of prehistory, there was an Ogg or Grok who expressed skepticism about that newfangled stuff they called fire.

The Future of Kitchen Appliances: An Interview with Thomas Johansson of ElectroluxTools
Shopping for kitchen appliances, as I shared last week, is an overwhelming and challenging process, full of moments that made me question the very shape and form of the appliances I was buying. Have you ever looked at your refrigerator or stove and wondered, Why does it have to be shaped like this? Why can’t it be smaller? Bigger? Better-looking? As technology advances, how much of our basic appliances’ forms will stay the same, and what needs to change?

French-Door Refrigerators: 10 Models From High to LowTools
We rather covet a French door fridge. Have you seen these? The fridge is on top, with side-by-side doors, and there is a freezer drawer on the bottom.

How I Found the Right Big Appliances for My Tiny KitchenTools
It’s ironic that living in one of the biggest cities in the world means having teeny-tiny appliances. I suppose it makes its own kind of sense — I reside on the island of Manhattan, a 23-square-mile strip of land that I share with more than 1.6 million other people. Space is tight, which means, among other things, that I didn’t own a dishwasher until about a year ago, even though I’ve been a grown-up with a job and a career for some time now.
