You Drink Your Milkshake, I’ll Eat Your Steak

Steven Raichlen Telescoping Fork

Sure, a fork with a long handle is useful at the grill for keeping hands away from the heat, but it also has a hidden, much more insidious use. The Steven Raichlen Telescoping Fork extends from 17.5-inches to 28-inches and is certainly designed for grill use, but when put into action, it offers users the distinct ability to grab at whatever is on the nearest plate.

Your steak a bit over done? Extend-o-fork! Got stuck with macaroni salad when you really wanted potato salad? Extend-o-fork! Too many veggies on the plate? Extend-o-fork the other way! Now, everything is within reach. Better get to practicing those diversionary techniques, because at $12.95, the fork pays for itself after only one use.

Grill Basket Quadruples The Possibilities

Steven Raichlen Non-Stick Rectangular Compartment Basket

As long as grilling is in the air around these parts, might as well think about some of the things the grill has to offer. But that’s just the problem—if you could call it a problem—the grill makes everything taste better. (Try grilling an apple fritter if you don’t believe it.) While there may be endless possibilities for the grill, not all of them fit so nicely on the grill, unless of course you have something to hold them.

Encouraging experimentation on the grill, the Steven Raichlen Non-Stick Rectangular Compartment Basket holds four different items at one time. The design keeps loose items from falling in the fire, which opens up a world of new possibilities. Best of all with four compartments, there will be enough grilled goodies for everybody.

Grill Season Ushered In With The Snap Of A Hot Dog And Crack Of The Bat

Steven Raichlen Double-V Smoker Box

It’s baseball season, which in turn means hot dog season has officially begun. However, hot dogs spinning eternally on stainless-steel rollers are only but one way to welcome in the new season. It’s time for the grill to come out of hibernation, and a good idea might be to step up your grilling game while you’re at it. A simple way is to do it with smoke.

The Steven Raichlen Double-V Smoker Box gives grillers the ability to add complex flavors by imparting foods with not only smoke, but also liquids. The double box construction allows for wood chips to be added to gas or charcoal grills, while the lower compartment is designed for adding juice, beer, wine or other flavored beverages. The traditional snap of a hot dog that accompanies the sound of baseball being smacked across the infield hasn’t usually included a palate-pleasing aftertaste of merlot or chardonnay, but hey, there’s always this year.
