Get Ready for Spring with this Steak Toaster

By

So you’re looking for a new way to cook your steak this spring?

Look no further! This glass toaster can cook your steak – and just about anything else – the “natural” way by heating it against glass.

How is that “natural,” you ask? I have no idea. That’s just what the guy in the video said.

It’s a pretty cool concept, really. I’m just not sure I’m willing to shell out a grand for the novelty of it.

Yes, one THOUSAND dollars.

Watch the video and tell me what YOU think. Yay or nay?

Either way, I still applaud anyone who’s thinking of ways to cook steak. Bravo!

Perfect Steak With a Cooking Simulator

By

Researchers in Japan have come up with a brilliant way to practice your steak cooking skills – and never risk burning a great piece of meat again!

It’s a 3D cooking simulator that lets you feel the weight of the food as you move it around the pan. You can mix onions and a beautiful steak with a digital spatula.

So cool!

It lets you decide whether you want your beef anywhere from rare to well done and shows you how long it might take you to achieve your desired results.

Sounds like the only thing missing is the smell of a sizzling steak.

And the taste.

Check out the video of this awesome simulator here. Happy Friday, everyone!
