In addition to basic motor skills and moderate self-control, making cocktails requires some concrete tools and a knowledge of why we use those tools the way we do. That’s why I, a bartender type, am here to help. This article is broken down into lists of stuff you need and don’t need, in varying degrees of needed and…
Iced coffee is a brilliant way to sell people ice for the price of coffee (which is mostly water to begin with). Cold brew on the other hand is a different process that results in less acidity, among other benefits, and you can do it yourself at home with this top-selling Takeya, now down to $19 on Amazon.
Chicken breasts are not very exciting, but they are a versatile protein with a pretty healthy image, and for that reason people tend to buy and cook a lot of them. Unfortunately, their lopsided, teardrop shape makes them a pain to cook well, and one can end up with a piece of meat that is juicy but flavorless on one…
Summer is in its final throes, which means buckets of produce to deal with — I mean, savor and cherish. Canning and pickling can help with that, but you know what super-duper sucks? Standing over a pot of boiling water in an already-swampy kitchen for hours to sanitize and seal slippery glass jars. No thank you. I…
Our nation’s seltzer obsession is showing no signs of abating, and at the front of the trend is La Croix, the ubiquitous, flavored fizzy water that people just can’t get enough of. You can enjoy La Croix all on its own, but why would you do that when you can pour some booze in there too?
There are many ways to enjoy the sweet treat that is summer corn, but did you know that you don’t even need to cook it? It’s true. Fresh, sweet corn tastes fantastic right off of the cob, no heat required.
When it comes to buying snacks, few stores meet my needs quite like Trader Joe’s. Their snacks are tasty, well-priced, and (usually) conveniently packaged, but I’ve never been sure about their origin.
An item has to sell 10,000 units to join our Bestseller club. The Dash Egg cooker can cook six eggs at once. That means it would take well over 200 average American chickens (and counting!) an entire year to lay enough eggs to fill all of the egg cookers you’ve purchased.
Loving espresso drinks and wanting to avoid dairy (for whatever reason) is a bad combination. This is especially true for soy milk drinkers, since different soy milks taste completely different, and you never know which one a cafe is going to use. Califia Farms is here to help.
I recently moved to Philadelphia after 10 years in Portland, Oregon, and the adjustment has been a breeze for two reasons. First, and most importantly, Philly owns bones. Second, with the obvious exception of my friends and family, the only Portland things I miss deeply are grocery stores: Winco, Sheridan Fruit on SE…
A whole bunch of you have bought Anova’s excellent sous-vide circulators over the past few years, but today, you can get Instant Pot’s new take on the product category for $89, an all-time low.
The Bonaverde Berlin, a countertop coffee machine that doesn’t just grind and brew, but also roasts, blew through its 2013 Kickstarter goals, with an estimated delivery date of October 2014. Autumn 2017 is the new ship date, and we tested a final unit last month.
We’ve talked quite a bit about displaying your knives rather than burying and damaging them in drawers, but what about the tens of thousands of pieces of cast iron and All-Clad you’ve bought?
Whether you’re baking cookies, roasting vegetables, or making the sweetest of candy, pan stickage is something you want to avoid. Both silicone baking mats and parchment paper can be used to coat pans, provide a non-stick surface, and cut down on cleaning time, but which one should you stock in your kitchen?

Our readers are no stranger to the second coming of the koozie, having purchased more than 10,000 of Thermos’ take (and that was just the single pack), but CORKCICLE is upping the ante.
Happy weekend, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple yet delicious libations. Today we’re making a sophisticated drink featuring scotchy scotch scotch: the Rob Roy.
Garlic skins have always been my least favorite part of peeling garlic. They either stick to my fingers, or float about the kitchen, carried by slight breezes before making their home on random appliances. But I resent them no more, my dears, because it turns out they make a kick-ass broth.
If you’ve watched any appreciable amount of cooking shows, you’ve most likely been instructed by some famous chef to “finish” your dish with a drizzle of oil, a sprinkling of salt, or some freshly chopped herbs. “Finishing” a dish, which is quite different than polishing one off, simply means adding those extra…
California Olive Ranch sautéed the competition in this week’s Co-Op to earn the title of our readers’ favorite olive oil.
