Here are some of our favorite things, featured in Joy of Kosher with Jamie Geller magazine.  All are available from our favorite store, Kitchen Clique, owned by our favorite gadget girl, Faigie Sprecher.

Charcoal Companion Pizzaque Pizza Stone Grill

Rather munch on veggies while everyone else is wolfing down the meat?  Make a veggie cheeseless pizza.  “Often, non-meat eaters don’t have something filling they enjoy at a BBQ.  This PizzaQue makes brick oven pizza using your grill.”  It just might be worth getting a second dairy grill-so you can make brick-oven style cheese pizza too!

Bodum Fyrkat Cone Charcoal Grill

“Isn’t it cute?” For anyone who doesn’t have a lot of space, or is tired of gas fumes or empty canisters, this is a charcoal grill that’s easy to clean, compact, light – and stylish.  There’s two cooking surfaces, a rotisserie, and the cone at the bottom screws off so you can remove the ashes without getting your fingers balck.”  The Bodum comes in a bunch of fun colors.

Breville Electronic Grill Removable Plates

“Yes, there are less expensive indoor grills. Panini makers will also give you grill lines,” says Faige. “But this is the king of electronic grills – it’s large, state-of-the-art, and wil give food that authentic BBQ flavor. It’s just like bringing your fancy barbecue indoors.

Camerons Beer Roaster

For Chicken Lovers. Tired of dry grilled chicken breasts? For the best, most moist chicken ever—pour your favorite marinade in the middle (or your favorite beer, the inspiration for this nifty cooking tool). “Stick the chicken on top, and cook over the grill or in the oven. The fat also drips down, resulting in a healthy BBQ option,” says Faige. That’s way cooler than chicken burgers.

Cuisinart Griddler Grill Centro

For Shish Kebab Lovers “This indoor electronic grill has a cool feature that rotates the skewers so they cook evenly,” says Faige. “The top can convert from a grill to a griddle.”

Talisman Party Picks

Editor Victoria Dwek used these at a recent party she hosted to
dress up the roasted veggie wraps. It’s an elegant touch with not much fuss.

Zak Lotus Bowl

The best of both worlds! These melamine bowls are pretty and
durable—perfect for summer outdoor entertaining. Keep your
delicate tabletop wares inside, and throw away those cheap
looking plastic platters. The lily pad is a plate, and the four
bowls nested inside separate. Use them on their own, or nest
one inside the other. So pretty!

Rachael Ray Melamine Garbage Bowl

Keep the trash can away and out of sight when you cook. Instead, throw those onion peels and egg shells into the Garbage Bowl. Yes, this is just a bowl. Yet, those who have it love it. Why? We suppose most people find using their regular prep bowls for “garbage” is unappealing. But a bowl set aside for the job, sitting right there on the counter?
That’s convenience!

Prodyne Salad-on-Ice

Do your greens wilt and turn unappetizingly warm when
you’re entertaining al fresco? Set that salad over ice. The cold air rises through the vent to keep lettuce crisp, while excess liquid drains away so your salad isn’t sitting in a puddle (no more soggy bottom-of-the-bowl!).

Sensio Mini Cupcake Maker

There’s no preheating, no opening the oven door to check those muffin tops. Who wants to do that in the summer? But we still want our cupcakes. Our favorite cupcake maker turns out moist cakes – in about 5 minutes.
