These double spatulas, or oversize tongs if you prefer, made from sturdy stainless steel, are the best thing to happen to burgers since buns and fish filets since tartar sauce. Slip it under the burger or filet, clamp down, flip and gently slide back onto the grates. No more broken burgers or filets. read more

While there are countless sous vide immersion circulators currently available, one of our favorites is the Breville Joule, a sleek unit that not only performs extremely well, its compact shape fits easily in a kitchen drawer. WiFi and Bluetooth enabled, the Joule works in conjunction with the Breville/ChefSteps app. read more

A spot remover that will remove the grease stains on almost all my shirts is something I considered to be as elusive as unicorns and perpetual motion machines. So I bought a 2 ounce bottle and tried it. One drop was enough clean a shirt so well that I could not find where the stain had been originally. read more

Called a “Mini Supoon” by the manufacturer Dreamfarm, this nifty spoon/spatula combo scrapes and measure every last drop from jars and containers. It's cheap and comes in several sizes. With a nylon handle and silicone head, its clever bent handle lets the spoon sit up off of the counter so there's never a mess. read more

Expand the number of racks of ribs you can cook at one time with this handy tool. Thanks to the Weber Original Rib Rack For Grilling, you can fit five slabs of ribs on a small grill, holding them upright with enough airspace between them to allow airflow and smoke penetration. read more

Adding the Rib-o-lator to the rotisserie on your grill allows you to cook multiple racks of ribs perfectly. There is a rod that connects to your rotisserie motor. Turn on your motor and round and round they go like a food Ferris wheel. That said, it can only handle narrow slabs that can be confined within the shelves. read more

This is a clever way to cook ribs in two hours on a gas grill, but if you have a few hours, you can cook them better without the Ribalyzer. Essentially the Ribalyzer is a device for smoking then steaming, resulting in very soft meat that's not quite as rich in flavor as if they had been dry roasted and zero bark. read more

I love these bamboo steak markers as they are a great tool when trying to keep track of which steaks are cooked to what degree of doneness. They come in a pack of 500 and include five temperatures: rare, medium rare, medium, medium well, and well. Unless charred, they can be washed and reused. read more

Use the old fashioned Old Mountain cast iron double pie iron, originally designed for filled pies, for making two perfectly toasted panini style grilled sandwiches at once. Just butter your sandwich on the outside, open up the hinged mold, insert the sandwiches and put it over the coals, campfire, or gas grill. read more
