Takahiro Gooseneck Kettle

Ekobrew Stainless Steel Elite — Refillable K-Cup for Keurig Coffee Brewers

I have mixed feelings about Keurig brewers. There’s no denying their sheer convenience—I mean, you literally just push a button to brew—but those disposable K-Cup pods are wasteful and tend to produce a subpar cup of coffee besides. The Ekobrew … (More)

JM&Sons Pour-Over Coffee Stand

Victorinox Fibrox 8-Inch Chef’s Knife

I’m at the point in my cooking “education” (part self-taught, part watching a lot of YouTube videos) where I’m starting to get fed up with my cheap knife set. Several of the knives are on their way out or were … (More)

Paprika Recipe Manager for iOS

For a long time, my go-to recipe manager was Evernote. Then, it was Basil for iPad. It’s been a while since that switch, but the limitation of Basil being iPad-only (amongst a few other quibbles) has finally started wearing on … (More)

Mercer Hell’s Handle Fish Spatula
