Gift Guide – for the home cook

In our last gift guide post for the season, we’ll be discussing gadgets for the kitchen. In a past New Tech Tuesday post we have discussed larger high tech appliances, like stoves and sous-vide machines, but this post will be dedicated to the smaller gadgets you never even knew you needed.

Crock-Pot® Smart Slow Cooker with WeMo® from Belkin

This Crock-Pot comes with an app for your smart phone or tablet which allows you to adjust and monitor cooking times and temperature from anywhere. Of course, it can also be controlled manually if you are at home. It has all of the same features as other Crock-Pots, including cool-touch handles.

There are several sleeves available to keep the iPad safe and dry while in the kitchen, like this one from The Orange Chef
