Fresh squeezed orange juice can be a real treat with breakfast. Having the right juicer, though, can make a big difference in how easy it can be to juice enough oranges for several glasses. The Latina Citrus Juicer offers a simple approach that helps you make sure that no pulp or seeds wind up in your glass. The juicer is designed on an angle, both providing a steady base and allowing juice to collect below where you're actually working with the fruit. All the juice passes through the teeth set into the surface of the Latina Citrus Juicer, which … Read more
Think about it: which kitchen appliance do you use each and every day? (No, the refrigerator doesn't count.) For some it might be the oven, but the work week and quality takeout food means it probably gets a rest occasionally. Perhaps the microwave sees action every day, or maybe not; again other options for mealtime are out there. No, there is one appliance in particular that owners not only use daily, but also wake up and practically run to: the coffee maker.
There is always room on the shelf for one more kitchen appliance. If that appliance has the capability to encourage a healthy lifestyle, then that one extra appliance could be worth its weight in gold. (Or at least worth its weight in terms of shed pounds.) It's not uncommon for people--and I certainly am no exception--to utter promises of getting back into shape, or eating healthier in general. More often than not, these promises fall by the wayside.
No party is complete without ice cubes. To further that thought, no Halloween party is complete without pumpkins and spooky lights. Luckily, Halloween is the holiday with the best gadgets. Lawns are decorated with frightening images that scream at you when you walk by and costumes feature everything from glowing lights to voice-changing speakers. But it's the little things that make Halloween gadgets unique, and little details that make your get-together special.

Mornings are made on routines. From the moment the alarm clock wakes us up we're off and running on autopilot. Breakfast is made and devoured with barely a glimmer of recognition, and then we are off and out the door, coffee in hand. Cold coffee, of course, because we are always running late.
This performance may play out day after day, but that doesn't mean a break in the routine would necessarily mess it up. A little change could go a long way. At least in the case of having your coffee at a drinkable temperature.
A simple … Read more
At some point for every kitchen gadget fan, it comes time to put away the kiddie tools. As we outfit our kitchens over time, we graduate from poorly made novelty devices to more usable constructs of higher quality. But then, sometimes these examples can fail us (or at least not provide us with all the power we need). While it might be nice to opt for the shiny ice cream milkshake blender, eventually the home chef needs to sacrifice nostalgia for quality.

It can be difficult to collect wine. It's not necessarily the entry price or the learning curve, as there are numerous varietals that are attractively priced, and a plethora of written advice is always only a few clicks away. No, what makes collecting wine difficult as opposed to baseball cards or classic cars is that wine is consumed. However, sometimes a collection need only be a few bottles strong.
The Cuisinart 8-Bottle Wine Cellar is a perfect solution for oenophiles who frequently "update" their collection. Holding either 750 milliliter or 1,500 milliliter bottles, the wine fridge … Read more
