Himalayan Salt Block

Sometimes having an exciting new place to plate a culinary masterpiece makes all the difference.  This Himalayan Salt Block can be used for cooking a dish as well as presenting it.  These run about $30 and can be found here.

AirFryer Oven

This one awesome device can replace a deep fryer, rotisserie oven, dehydrator, oven, toaster oven, pizza maker and microwave. This AirFryer Oven from Tristar Products is good-looking, compact and is portable.  It also comes with a useful recipe book.  Since it doesn’t use a lot of oil when frying, you don’t need to worry about getting rid of yucky grease after you use it.   It is priced under $160 from places like Bed, Bath & Beyond and Amazon.

Note:  I couldn’t get enough of this one and I was originally a bit skeptical, but the AirFryer works and you don’t notice the difference from its deep fried half-siblings.  However, the best use is to reheat things that would normally be handled in a microwave.  The AirFryer keeps the integrity of the items put in it and does it in just about the same time as a microwave.  It is a great multitasking gift for the person who loves cool, yet useful kitchen gizmos.
