Nomiku sous-vide immersion cooker set to bring tender deliciousness to your home

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Design, Household,

Nomiku sous-vide immersion cooker

Sous-vide cooking allows you to make super tender, juice, mouth-watering food that's full of flavor after being cooked slowly over a long period of time in a bath of warm water. The thing is, it's been cost-prohibitive to the average home cook. The Nomiku immersion cooker aims to change all that. Already a successful Kickstarter project, Nomiku is set to make immersion-style sous-vide cooking available to the masses when it launches in December of this year for $299. Rather than providing an expensive, limited-space bath, Nomiku clips on to any pot or pan that you want to use for cooking. Check out the video of the product to see how it works, after the break.

Since it's ceramic, it stays sharper than a steel knife, and holds its edge longer. It also won't rust, and is resistant to acids, germs, and oils. The best part, though, is that they aren't even that expensive. You can get this knife on Amazon for $25.

Hammacher Schlemmer offers first voice-activated coffee machine

Famous gadget distributor Hammacher Schlemmer is offering something for the “coffee achievers” (or baby boomers?) with the world’s first voice-automated coffee maker.

This is the first voice-interactive coffee maker that asks, “Would you like to set the clock or set the coffee brewing time?” and operates in response to your verbal commands. Simply saying, “Set the coffee brewing time,” or “Set the clock,” will prompt the machine to reply, “Please say the time, including AM or PM.” It uses an advanced voice recognition system to identify any time of day you speak, eliminating the hassle of fussing with buttons.

That’s right, no more fooling around with buttons or other confusing controls.  The coffee maker is capable of 10 cups a time, and you can remove the carafe during a brewing to pour yourself that cup of joe.  You can pick this one up for $99.95.

Food Network Star in the Making: Chef Jeff Project

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Reality, Cable, Editorial,

Jeff HendersonI’ll admit it - I gave a little eye-roll when I saw the first promo. Chef in the kitchen mentors six young ‘uns, talking about a “life-changing experience.” Sounds like the usual reality show hype, right? But after the fourth promo, my appetite was whet. So I set the DVR. And I watched the Chef Jeff Project. It’s about to become the biggest thing on the entire - it’s a good idea to start paying attention now.

Jeff Henderson, one-time guest on and author of “Chef Jeff Cooks,” is the driving force behind the Project. He’s definitely got the kitchen cred - he’s served as executive chef to both the Café Bellagio and Caesar’s Palace, and now owns the up-and-coming Posh Urban Cuisine. But Chef Jeff isn’t your average culinary connoisseur, because he’s also got the street cred.

Jeff Henderson spent almost ten years behind bars for pushing cocaine in and around his hometown, South Central L.A. For his inspiring Project, Henderson installed six inner-city kids into his upscale catering business, hiring them on as employees.

You may not think much of your silverware or your plates, but someone does.  The results of designboom’s Dining in 2015 design competition were announced a few months back, and there were a number of fantastic entries.  Out of a total of 4843 entries from 98 countries, the five person jury narrowed it down to 3 first prize entries and an honorable mention from a shortlist of 160 amazing entries.  My favorite entry from the shortlist, pictured above, is the “cutlery in a wallet,” designed by Alberto Ghirardello of Italy. It was “designed to facilitate outdoor eating,” and I can’t think of an easier and more compact way to do exactly that.
