Grill Alert gives BBQ info galore!

Grill Alert gives BBQ info galore!

Grill Alert consists of two units; A transmitter, a stick-like device that is jabbed into thie of meat in the grill, and a receiver that is put on a table nearby so that you can monitor the meat. Besides being a thermometer, you can set the level of cooking you want (rare all the way to well done).

This device is great if you have a smoker that smokes meat over a long period of time (I am investing in a smoker, so when I get it, a review will come for sure). If you don't want to sit next to your smoker for hours (like most people), you can carry around the receiver and it will beep when everything is ready.

The receiver is LCD, and has bars and words to guide you through. The whole unit can be bought for $75 USD over at Brookstone.

Breakfast-Art Image Toaster

Breakfast-Art Image Toaster

Some time ago, I read about a competition-winning design of a toaster that could forecast the weather. It would acquire the days weather information via the web and imprint an image of sunshine, clouds, or clouds with rain on to your toast. That way, you can wake up every morning to some warm divine toast and then decide how to dress for the day or whether or not to bring an umbrella. Somewhat useful, somewhat gimmicky. I never really thought it would go beyond the concept stage.

But lo and behold, Brookstone is now offering to the mass market such a toaster that imprints images on to your toast but has lost its forecasting or internet connection abilities. It looks like you can print anything from smily sunshines to christmas trees. I can sense custom imprint plate accessories to follow should these toasters actually start flying off the shelf. So, if you find your toast to be too boring and plain, you might consider shilling out $60 for this Breakfast-Art Image Toaster.

Colour Caller-ID gives cross-room warning

Colour Caller-ID gives cross-room warning

A lot of people I know are phone phobic.  My uncle Peter, if he hears the phone ring, will jump behind anything reasonably large; it's really put a strain on his marriage to my aunt June, who has a bit of a weight problem.  I'm not quite sure what he's afraid of, telemarketers probably, or their daughter Missy who is efficiently clearing out their bank account while at university.  This might just be the gadget that calms his nerves, however.

 

The colour changing Caller ID unit does pretty much what it says on the box - up to four different colours (red, green, blue & purple) can be assigned to different callers.  Now uncle Peter can check out if it's red for danger or green for all-clear from all the way across the room.  Even better, it's only $29.99 - that won't put too much strain on his poor bruised current account.
