Hey guys! I personally never heard of this appliance until the vacuvita guys contacted me to review it. Well, let’s be clear. This is not an appliance. It’s actually an integrated vacuum sealing solution that pretty much covers all of the home cook needs and will make your kitchen look like some sleek sci-fi future lab (like in a good way!). I’ve been testing it for quite some time and use it pretty much every day. Let’s break down this system into its main features and elaborate a bit on each, shall we?
Grilling much this summer? Hope so! And I also hope you have a great pair of tongs to help you with that. I had the pleasure to test and review these awesome tongs by the guys at cavetools. I have a collection of tongs at home I will admit. They’re one of my main all-purpose kitchen tools actually. I use them very frequently, from flipping steaks to tossing salads or the not so frequent need-something-to-help-me-reach-something-in-the-back-of-that-really-deep-cabinet. So yeah, if you’re looking for a pair of heavy duty tongs that get the job done, these might be for you.
Hey, guys! back again to review a pretty cool product for all you sous vide home cooks out there! especially if you’re the kind of sous vide cook that loves really long cooking times. I cook a lot of tougher cuts very often and as you know, three, four days in a water bath is pretty standard to the point where water evaporation actually becomes an issue. I usually just add some water to the tank every morning and move on… but yeah, it’s kinda wasteful, not efficient. So the EVERIE guys came to my rescue and sent me a couple of cool lids that fit the popular Rubbermaid containers and my ANOVA circulators. They also sent me one of these containers. It’s not even my birthday! which btw it’s coming up.
Finally done with a crazy project at work which kept me away for almost a month. The guys @ cave tools were kind enough to let me review one of their many cool grilling gadgets. If you’re looking for that next summer BBQ toy, they have plenty of options to satisfy your curiosity so pay them a visit. Alright guys, it’s review time!
I haven’t reviewed many products on my blog but I’m always happy to do it, specially if they’re closely related to my cooking. Sous vide cooking can be daunting specially if you have never done it. It requires gear which isn’t necessarily cheap. Immersion circulators are becoming more affordable these days but still are in the $200 range. I remember when I started cooking sous vide a few years ago, these would easily go around $1000 which is why I decided to build my own from scratch for less than $100 but thats a story for another time.
