"As men get older, the toys get more expensive."Marvin Davis

Here's are our reviews of tools, toys, gadgets, and equipment that can help make you a better cook as well as those that should be avoided all together. We have tested all of these products and we really put them through their paces to see if they are worth using. For the best deals, pay attention to our "The AmazingRibs.com Best Value Medals", especially the Gold Medals. Medals are based on (1) features, (2) construction quality, and (3) value. Rarely will a $400 Gold Medal be in the same quality league as an $800 Gold Medal or a $1,200 Gold Medal, so be sure you see what we say about the construction quality, features and how they perform in the real world.
