What would a kitchen post be like without Instant Pot? The always-selling Instant Pot is the best, most expensive place in the world of cooking. This variety has nine uses, ranging from cooking rice to making yogurt. It is large enough for a family meal, and the results will be as delicious as on the most expensive varieties.
ThermoWorks’ Thermapen series thermometers are Cadillacs of the thermometer world read immediately. They are not cheap, but they are reliable, easy to use, and durable. I have been using my application for many years and it is much better than the day it came. One is accurate to ± 0.5 degrees Fahrenheit and takes one second to calculate the temperature. Note that Thermapen does not sell on Amazon and we recommend avoiding the Thermapens (or knocks) you see there.

This is not the best we’ve ever seen, but it’s the best we’ve seen this year.
If you are thinking of a blender as a smoothie maker, this is the blender you want. It is not a shock to the world, but Nutribullet is a smoothie maker that serves only once, and the mixer container doubles as your glass, so you can mix and match.
One of our favorite tea shops sells all over the place. I really like this tumbler, which acts like alcohol and keeps your tea warm for several hours. This alliance gives you three examples of tea. You will also get free shipping (unless you are in Alaska or Hawaii).
