Kitchen Tech: Carbonating tools turn water into soda, fruit and desserts into fizzy magic

carbonation

I realized the other day that my first exposure to carbonation – the little carbon dioxide bubbles found in soda — came so early in life that I couldn’t possibly remember it. My kids will eventually say the same thing. Despite warning parents that sugary drinks are unhealthy, doctors still recommend fizzy ginger ale to settle kids’ upset stomachs, and no one’s likely to give up Pepsi, Coke, or Red Bull any time soon.

But carbonation isn’t just for sodas. It’s also the bubble power behind beer and champagne, as well as some avant garde culinary tricks that are both surprising and compelling. This week’s edition of Kitchen Tech looks at three different and affordable ways to bring carbonation to your drinks — and food (!) — at home.

Life Hack: Fix your iMac’s biggest annoyance by moving its USB ports, deals from $6 Prime shipped

satechi-imac-usb-hub

In late 2012 Apple released a super slim unibody iMac. Its tapered 5mm design is simply an engineering feat and is most definitely worth gawking at. The front is free from ports, which creates an ultra clean look, but comes at the expense of functionality. It’s a first world problem, I know, but it can be a real nuisance having to crane your neck to plug in a USB cable. Luckily a couple accessory makers have tackled this issue by moving the iMac’s USB ports to its front panel.

One deal we’re currently featuring solves this problem for just $6.17 Prime shipped, while another new product adds even more functionality but at a higher price point… Read more

LifeProof is finally rounding out its waterproof case lineup for Apple’s latest iPhones. Most likely handcuffed by strict partner agreements and an all-new iPhone design, it has taken LifeProof more than 5 months to release a case compatible with the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus.

lifeproof-iphone-6-plus

The case isn’t slated to ship until early March and is priced at $99.99, but you should lock in your order now as LifeProof has said this initial run of iPhone 6 Plus cases is “extremely limited.” Only the black version is available at this time. (note 2/23 5:30pm: seems like the website is getting hit hard with traffic so you may need to refresh multiple times if you get an error)

The LifePrtoof frē Phone 6 case is already available. In fact, we found it to be “the best waterproof, shockproof case available for iPhone 6 out there.” Order from Amazon to save a couple bucks.
