Rotisserie in the woods

Auspit Australian Rotisserie BBQ

Getting away from the city is always a recipe for a good time. Part of that fun usually includes ‘camping food’. Bearing a resemblance to ‘rood food’, camping grub usually includes things you wouldn’t normally eat. At the very least, any meal you prepare is most likely going to differ from how you make it at home. That’s part of the fun; an open fire and coolers full of rapidly melting ice lead to food that must be eaten— no matter how.

Pasta Pasta Play-Doh Pasta (but better tasting)

Pasta Pasta Maker from Takara Tomy

It’s no secret that cooking can be fun, but when it comes to making pasta, the Pasta Pasta Maker from Takara Tomy takes fun to a whole new level. Reminiscent of the Play-Doh Fun Factory (as is this), the machine uses a set of stamps and molds for creating eight different types of Italian pasta. This pasta-making machine may come to us from Japan, and the manual is in Japanese, but considering all the practice you probably put into making inedible Play-Doh patties and the such, I think you will be able to figure it out.

Handpresso: Espresso to go…anywhere

Handpresso Wild Portable Espresso Machine

If you’re like everybody else (and really, who isn’t?), then you are sure to have more than a mild appreciation for coffee. Unfortunately, there is not always a coffee house nearby to fuel our caffeine needs. The Handpresso Wild Portable Espresso Machine solves this problem by working without electricity. With only hot water, an ESE coffee pod and some elbow grease, you could have espresso style drinks anywhere.

All you need to do to enjoy espresso anywhere is pump up the machine until the pressure indicator is at 16 bar, and then press the start button. Up to 1.5-ounces of smooth espresso is served in an instant. As we all know: when it comes to coffee, soon can never be soon enough.
