Meat's best-friend


Staff Pick

Guesswork? We don't know her. The MEATER boasts all the basic thermometer features and takes it even further by adding several smart features such as the Bluetooth connection and Wi-Fi connection. Combined with the MEATER app, this thermometer not only gives you recipes but also monitors your cook time. Plus, it lets you know when to pull it from the heat and how long to let it rest for the perfectly cooked meat experience.

Brew comfortably

Cosori Gooseneck Kettle

Making any part of the morning routine easier is a win in my book, and The Cosori Gooseneck Smart Kettle can make it happen. Paired with the VeSync app, this kettle has a handful of preset options and even customizable settings, ensuring you have the perfect brew every time. There's even a formula setting that will boil your water to sterilize and then bring the temperature back down for baby's optimal temperature.

Perfect every time

Anova Precision Cooker

Now you may be thinking that one sous vide is just as good as the next, but Anova has the Anova Culinary app, which makes sous vide cooking more effortless than ever before. To start, the app is a little intimidating, but this is the place for all things sous vide related. Best of all, the Anova precision cooker can thoroughly cook a protein from frozen to the perfect temperature all in one pot. Storage is also a breeze, as it's small enough to fit right in your kitchen drawers.

Ever hot

Ember Mug 2

The days of bygone coffee turned cold are far behind us, and Ember is leading the way as the world's first temperature-controlled smart mug. Temperature and LED color controls are all handled through the Ember app, and they help ensure you have a warm beverage when you need it. The mug itself holds temperature for about 90 minutes on a full charge, but when you use the included charging saucer, you can have that delicious hot tea of coffee no matter how long you've forgotten about it.

Perfect grind

Breville Smart Grinder Pro

The struggle is real, trying to get exactly the right grind for your preferred coffee beverage. The Smart Grinder has made that struggle a thing of the past. Their 60 unique settings ranging from the courser grounds needed for a French press all the way down to the superfine grounds for espresso ensures you have the right coarseness for the job. Not to mention the stainless steel conical burrs designed to minimize grinding heat and protect the essential oils in the coffee bean, giving you the best brew possible.

One stop shop

Instant Pot Smart Wi-Fi 6 Quart

Timesavers for the win! This smart Instant Pot does everything an Instant Pot should, pressure cook, slow cook, make rice, yogurt, cakes, and does it beautifully, I might add. But they've gone and made it smart. You can pair it with the Instant Pot app or control it via voice with Alexa. Now, not only can you start your meal from anywhere to ensure it's done when you need it to be, but you can also monitor the progress and receive notifications right through the app. To top it all off, you can share the access with members of your home to ensure everyone knows when it's dinner time.

Hands free

Amazon Basics Microwave

Hands always full or a little too messy? Amazon has the microwave for you. This microwave is Alexa enabled, and as long as you can hit one button, Alexa has your back. Just tell it what you need to do. Several preset commands make life easier, for example, "Alexa, reheat coffee" or "Alexa, microwave potatoes." Alexa gets smarter every day, so new presets are always being added. Don't forget the popcorn! Not only does it have presets for it, but you can also automatically order popcorn right through your microwave through Amazon Dash Replenishment technology. When doing so, you will also save 10% on your popcorn order. This seems like a win-win to me.

Small But Mighty

Joule Sous Vide

How can something so small do so much? The Joule is one of the smallest sous vides on the market today, making it able to cook in as little as 1.5 inches of water. But make no mistake, it packs a mighty punch using 1100 watts of power for hyper-fast water heating. Let's not forget about the smart features; your Joule can be voice-controlled using the custom Joule Alexa skill. It can be connected via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, meaning you can set your prep in the morning and set it to cook via Wi-Fi before ever leaving work, ensuring your food is ready when you need it to be.

If we had to choose

The time I spend in the kitchen is my me time, and I know it's the same for many people, so moving into the smart gadget and appliance world just makes sense. So let's make it easier and more enjoyable. My personal favorite is The MEATER. If you're anything like me and you struggle with ensuring the meat is at the right internal temperature, then the MEATER may be the one for you, too, especially if you're a fan of the low and slow method of cooking.

If something a little more everyday use is what you prefer, check out the Ember Mug 2. If you enjoy hot beverages and are easily distracted, this mug is a game-changer. I can't tell you how many times I've had to reheat my coffee just to jump right back into work and have it go cold again. The amount of time this saves is pretty astounding, plus not losing my train of thought just because I wanted a sip of hot coffee. Thanks to Ember, this is all a thing of the past.

Technology is moving forward, so we might as well enjoy the ride. Smart kitchen gadgets are making our lives easier every day and definitely improving on quality of life. This leaves us with more time and energy to devote to things that matter most to us.

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.

How to watch England vs New Zealand: Live stream 2nd Test series cricket on

With the first Test ending in a draw, the series is on a knife edge at Edgbaston, as Joe Root's side look to put off the field controversies to one side and claim a much needed win against the Kiwis. Don't miss a single ball of the 2nd Test with our England vs New Zealand live stream guide below. The series has been somewhat overshadowed by the emergence of offensive historic tweets posted by Ollie Robinson who made his debut in the opening Test but has since been suspended.

The Galaxy Watch 4 is coming soon — here's everything you need to know

Samsung's Galaxy-brain play: leaving Tizen behind for Wear OS. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, one of the best Android smartwatches , may have only just launched in November 2020, but the latest rumors out of South Korea suggest the company may already be developing its replacement — with some big changes and upgrades in the works meant to topple Apple from its smartwatch throne. There's no confirmation whether Samsung's 2021 smartwatch will be named the "Galaxy Watch 4" or adopt a new name entirely. However, we know that this new watch will run the new version of Wear OS, which would have a big impact on app support and Android phone connectivity. It could also feature a newer-faster chipset, which could put it leagues ahead of the best Wear OS watches . Details are fairly scarce so far, but we've scrounged up every known leak about specs, design leaks, and pricing, along with everything else we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4.

Every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart

Armor up Ratchet and Rivet before taking down their enemies. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart features several armor sets that both Ratchet and Rivet can wear throughout the game, giving them damage buffs and other benefits. Each armor set is comprised of three pieces; the helmet, chest, and boots. Without all three pieces of a complete set, you won't get their collection bonus buffs. Thankfully, each map tells you exactly where to find the armor you need. It's then all about exploring the area and picking it up. You'll find most pieces within optional dimensional rifts that feature platforming puzzles of some kind, and there are eight total sets to be found. Here's every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and the buffs that they offer: Galactic Ranger Description: The classic helmet of the Solana Galactic Rangers.
