Samsung Zipel Oven Goes for Under $600, Combines Microwave and Traditional Oven with Steamer

Having all-in-one gadgets doesn't just mean for your PC or printer. At least, it shouldn't. And we're glad to see that Samsung shares our same ideas, as they've just begun to show off their Zipel oven. It's designed for Koreans, as the company is marketing it for "Korean tastes," but just looking at this perfectly sized device, and considering everything it can do, we're pretty sure this will get eyeballed by a lot more folks than just Koreans.

Concept nutcracker uses gravity and metal to do the deed

When I was a kid, we used to pick up all the pecans behind my grandmother's house and mostly we threw them at each other's heads. On occasion, we would try to crack them for a snack. Typically, that involved stomping on them until the shell broke and we could eat the nut.

Defibrillator-shaped toaster crying out for a Steve Martin film to goof in

Defibrillator-shaped toaster crying out for a Steve Martin film to goof in

While we wouldn't argue with some kitchen/hospital crossovers - better food while you're recuperating would be nice - we can't help but think designing a toaster to look like a defibrillator opens up all manner of potential pratfalls. The handiwork of Shay Carmon, toast/e/r is tongue-in-cheek billed as a way to "revive your old bread".

Espresso machine made from concrete sounds gross

I'm not a coffee drinker, but until my wife has a few cups I don’t even like to look at her lest she smite me with early morning grumpiness. She uses a coffee maker made from plastic like most things today. If you like your coffee, but prefer it in a stronger espresso form and like really industrial looking designs the Lavazza is for you.

Waffle on a stick is perfect for carnies

Summer is here and the kids are under my feet constantly as I try to work every day. One thing I can count on as soon as my 5-year-old daughter rolls her crazy-haired head out of bed is that she will want her "waftuls" otherwise known as waffles. Shortly after the waffles are eaten, she will want her first of 157 popsicles of the day.

Samsung Zipel WiFi refrigerator packs DLNA streaming & Google Calendar

Samsung Zipel WiFi refrigerator packs DLNA streaming & Google Calendar

Think back to January and you might recall Samsung clearing WiFi certification with a refrigerator bearing a built-in digital photo frame.  Snap forward to today, and witness the awesome white-goods power of the Samsung Zipel SRT746AWTN, a double-door fridge with an integrated 10-inch touchscreen.

With that touchscreen - and the Zipel's WiFi b/g support - you can browse the internet, stream media via DLNA, take notes and even pull up nutritional information for more than 500 different types of food.  It'll also show Google Calendar entries and weather reports, again with internet updates, as well as news alerts and other articles.  Slap in a memory card (no telling what type) or hook up some sort of wireless storage and the Samsung Zipel can show a slideshow of your favorite photos, which is frankly much better than sticking on rubbish painted pasta pictures that your offspring comes home with and expects you to fawn over.

Fruit slide is better than tossing your apples in a bowl

We go through a lot of fruit in my house. My daughter eats apples like most kids eat ice cream. The catch is that if the apples get bruised from sitting in a bowl or dropped she doesn't eat them because the brown spots are gross. A new way to hold your apples and keep them from being bruised has surfaced called the Fruit Slide.

WiFi isn't the sort of thing you'll usually find in a refrigerator - an old jar of mayo, perhaps, and a shrivelled looking tomato - but Samsung want to change that.  Fresh through WiFi certification [pdf link] is the Samsung SRT746AWTN, a refrigerator with an integrated digital photo frame.

WMF1 one-cup coffee machine wins points on style

WMF1 one-cup coffee machine wins points on style

While normally I'd suggest avoiding those single-use coffee pod machines, since you don't know when the beans were roasted or ground, I've a feeling I'll give the WMF1 a pass simply because of the excellent design.  Intended to product a single cup of coffee, the WMF1 has a distinctive niche for the supplied mug and a straightforward loading system.
