If you enjoy baking, read this article from bakinginfo.com about the new Gotham Steel Baking Sheet. It uses the same Ti-Cerama (titanium and ceramic) surface as the famous Gotham Steel pans. Now you can bake the healthier way, without oil or butter. This baking sheet is non-stick, oven and dishwasher safe, and made without PTFE, PFOA or PFOS. And no more burnt messes to scrape. Does this sound great or what? Makes me want to start preheating the oven immediately. Continue reading →
What do baking and grilling have in common? Yes, both produce delicious food, but both also make for a major messy cleanup. How many times have you scraped at your grill grate with a greasy wire brush and given up before it was clean? How many cake pans have you left soaking overnight because it was impossible to get burnt batter out of the corners? Are you ashamed to have anyone see your favorite baking sheets because of their dark, burnt, crusty stains?
Yoshi Grill Mats are just as perfect for grilling, camping, tailgating and picnics as the Miracle Grill Mat, but now you can enjoy the same 100% non-stick, easy-to-clean surface while you bake with the Yoshi Bake Non-Stick Mat.

Best of all, they can be put in the dishwasher or just rinsed off with soap and water – try doing that with your big, heavy grill grate. You can buy Miracle Grill Mats on Amazon, but only Yoshi Grill & Bake Non-Stick Mats have the Grip N’ Flip Spatula as a special bonus. Continue reading →
Life imitated award-winning television when Chicago police arrested Daniel Kowalski, whose mugshot shows the 21-year-old in a Breaking Bad-related shirt. Police were acting on an anonymous tip when they allegedly found a methamphetamine lab in his home. The shirt, of course, features the logo of the fictional Los Pollos Hermanos restaurant from the hit TV series starring Bryan Cranston. You can get your own Los Pollos Hermanos shirt here. But don’t get carried away with it. It’s just a show.
Reader’s Digest staff members recently did a hands-on test of 10 As Seen on TV products, and delivered their honest critiques. For “As Seen on TV: What Not to Buy,” writer Perri O. Blumberg enlisted colleagues at the magazine to help “separate the scams from the saviors” of 10 “products we all secretly want.”
The magazine recommends buying six of the 10 products, with the NutriBullet receiving a score of 4 out of 4 (“Order overnight!!”). The lowest-ranking products were Lint Lizard, with a zero out of 4 (“Need we say more?”), and the Twist n Clip, with a 0.5 out of 4 (“Practically a gag gift”).
Here are all 10 products Reader’s Digest reviewed, with their score, recommendation and retail price in quotes.
Infamous and inVinceableVince Offer is back peddling his Slap Chop in an attempt to resurrect interest in this once market-dominating As Seen on TV classic. As we demonstrated in this blog post a few years ago during the Slap Chop’s heyday, it’s easy to whip up a three-course meal in no time with this ultra-handy gadget.
“Slap Chop performs pretty much as advertised. You push down on the plunger and foods get chopped. The blade is sharp. The Slap Chop seems plenty sturdy and its butterfly hinge makes it easy to clean.”
And our rave back in 2009 still holds true: “We’re happy to say that the Slap Chop performs pretty much as advertised. You push down on the plunger and foods get chopped. The blade is sharp. While it’s not by any means a precision instrument, the Slap Chop seems plenty sturdy and its butterfly hinge makes it easy to clean.”
Original offer doubled: 2 for 1, plus 2 free Graty graters
The Slap Chop is the same easy-to-use everyday kitchen appliance that millions have added to their culinary routines, and with the current deal, you can get two for the price of one, plus get a bonus gift. Order now to get two Slap Chops, plus two Graty graters for $19.95 plus S&H! The Graty is a slick, easy-to-use grater for cheeses that comes with a lid, so you can keep it in the fridge and pull it out whenever you need to kick up pasta or tacos a notch or three.
With Wonderbag, there’s nothing to plug in and no fuel to add. All you do is heat up your food on a conventional stove, then place your pot inside the Wonderbag and let it cook for up to 12 hours using the heat trapped inside.
The portable slow cooker is the brainchild of entrepreneur Sarah Collins, who hopes to empower people around the world “with a buy-one-give-one model to support getting Wonderbags into humanitarian relief,” according to the Wonderbag website. The site claims 650,000 bags have been distributed so far, and 6,000 have been bought in the United States and Europe.
For every Wonderbag sold via Amazon, the company gives one Wonderbag to an African family. Because the bag requires no fuel, families can save as much as 30 percent of their income. Here’s where to order.
The Pastafina miracle cooker by Chef Tony Notaro, a retread of the Pasta Express, which debuted way back in 2006, could see new life in the direct-response TV sales market, according to product prognosticator Jordan Pine of SciMark Corp.
“I liked this product when it came out originally, and I think this revival version hits all the same, correct notes,” Pine writes at his SciMark Report blog.
Pine likes how the Pastafina commercial is shot, as well as pitchman Chef Tony’s skills: “The magic was always watching the pasta move as it cooks, and the production team has captured that. Tony is also in his element pitching anything Italian, and it shows in the passion he puts into his delivery.”
