La Marzocco Linea Mini embraces coffee geek mainstream (sorta)

La Marzocco may be famous in coffee but the Italian espresso machine company has never been what you'd call affordable.

GE’s new sous vide probe talks to induction cooktops

You probably don’t cook sous vide, and that’s a shame. Though it’s counter intuitive to much of what you know about cooking, sous vide often does a much better job of cooking your proteins evenly; often perfectly.

Keurig recalls 7m brewers for burning coffee addicts

Keurig is recalling more than seven million coffee machines, after in addition to squirting pod coffee into a mug, the brewers also sprayed hot water at users themselves.

The fix, so Keurig claims, is simple, and it even insists that owners needn't stop using their brewers while they wait for it - just as long as they're willing to take some basic precautions.
