  • The Stingray Kitchen multitool has a heat resistant spatula front end up to 460F, with stainless steel handles and piercer.
  • The Stingray BBQ multitool has the same nylon and stainless steel constructions but the spatula is stainless steel as well for higher heat situations.

TNK sent us a set o the multitools to try out, and we though making sausages and eggs yesterday morning was never easier. The Stingray also cleaned up really well after breakfast.

ThermoWorks The Original Cooking Thermometer/Timer


The Original Cooking Thermometer/Timer is an excellent kitchen appliance that has made my life easier. I bought one recently for only $24. Cooks Magazine rated this remarkable tool “Best of the Bunch” and it lives up to their high rating in more ways than one.

The latest cooking thermometer model has an On/Off switch that helps to save the battery life. All I have to do is stick the probe into the center of my roast, set the temperature at exactly where I want, close the oven door and the cooking timer sounds when the meat is ready. The product comes with a booklet that has a chef recommended temperature chart. I decided to use the chef recommended temperature and set it a few degrees lower so that there would be a continued rise during the time the meat rested outside of my oven. More details about this fantastic product’s features are below.

ChefAlarm High Temp Cooking Probe

Anyone who has ever cooked a roast knows the frustration of taking your “cooked to perfection” meal out of the oven, and then at carving time, you find it is certainly not ” cooked to perfection” after all. Instead, it is still raw in the center. This is when you would find a cooking thermometer probe extremely useful for ensuring your roast is cooked evenly throughout.

You need look no further than the ChefAlarm high temperature cooking probe from ThermoWorks to find what you need. It is the latest innovation in oven thermometers, and has been designed for use in commercial kitchens, and has features not found in ones designed for home cooking. This appliance is very high quality, but at an affordable price for the budget-conscious cook. It comes in 9 colors, all so attractive, you will have a hard time deciding which one to buy.

iGozen Everyday Organic Cleaner


iGOZEN is a 100% organic simple and affordable solution that safely cleans your house, protecting you and your family from these deadly toxins. iGOZEN also has food washes to truly remove bacteria and pesticides from your food.

We've been using the iGozen Everyday cleaner for the past 3 weeks on our granite counter tops and kitchen sinks with micro-fiber towels and the results have been amazing. Clean counters without the smell of a harsh cleanser and also gleaming surfaces. It does a great job on touch up cleaning areas, and we like that it's organic.

We used the starter kit that includes 6 packets of powder, a bottle for dispensing, and a micro-fiber towel. The Everyday Cleaner bottle sprays a large area, and we felt did a great job in the 16oz size of not running out.

Thanks to iGozen for sending us samples to review.

Spoutnik Freestanding Microwave from Fagor

Fagor spoutnik microwave

The Spoutnik from Fagor might be one of the cooler microwaves we've ever seen. What is Spoutnik? How about we have Spoutnik tell us.

"I am an exciting new freestanding microwave with an innovative domed design and illuminated turntable. Very versatile for my size, my unique spherical shape and spacious interior can accommodate a wide range of dishes and unlike traditional microwaves; you always have a 360º view of what I am cooking. My translucent lid has a smooth opening system so my internal cooking area is completely accessible, making me much easier to clean. Easy to use, I have four cooking options with an adjustable timer."

Makes sense to us, and we would welcome one of these little round wonders into our kitchen any day.
