Just as there are two sides to every story, there are two sides to every food item: the inside and the outside. Particular attention, of course, gets paid to how food looks, but as we all know, it's how something tastes that brings us back for more. Building flavor can be accomplished in a variety of ways, but to achieve results quickly and easily, sometimes it's best to look beyond the surface.

The Home Tech Flavor Injector literally pumps up the level of flavor that can be incorporated into food items; it uses a pump mechanism to force liquid into food, whereas most other injectors opt for the hypodermic approach. In addition to the seemingly out-of-place pump-based contraption, the flavor injector hides a few additional advantages.

Featuring three injectors and a large reservoir, the kitchen gadget is designed to be used effectively and efficiently. The business ends of the injectors are specially designed with offset openings; when plunged into foodstuffs, the holes do not become clogged. Stainless steel filters separate each needle from the reservoir, so chunky sauces and marinades don't clog the opening from the other direction. Put all the highlights together and it becomes apparent that not only is it what's inside that really matters, but also how it got there.
