Things to look for

Fuel. Fuel. Decide if you want gas, charcoal, wood pellet, or electric. Let’s do a process of elimination.

Electrics do not impart the same flavor as grills that actually have combustion going on, like charcoal, gas, or pellets. Combustion gases create flavor. Nor do they get hot enough to get red meats to a dark brown surface without overcooking the interior. I recommend them only for people in buildings where gas and charcoal are not allowed.


These are superb smokers and roasters, the best outdoor ovens going. They are fine pizza and bread ovens because the sides and domes absorb heat and radiate it back like a professional brick oven so the pizza and bread can cook properly from above. They are also great for paella and tandoori cooking.

Easy to start in all wind and weather conditions, the insulation means that they need very little charcoal or oxygen, even in far northern winters. The thick sides retain and radiate heat very efficiently. That means less charcoal and oxygen are needed so there is not a lot of airflow out of the chimney. When meat heats up a lot of liquid evaporates from its surfaces, and the more airflow the more the meat dries out. Since ceramics have low airflow, meat remains juicier. Other smokers have thinner walls and many leak a lot so they require more charcoal and airflow, which means that airflow out the chimney and the leaky doors carries away more moisture than the ceramics. It is not unusual for a pork shoulder to lose 30% of its weight in an offset smoker. Water loss on a ceramic is often under 20%.

Ceramics are so well insulated and the interior absorbs and radiates heat so evenly that they are very good at holding steady temps. The meat is usually higher up above the coals than normal charcoal grills, so there are no flareups, and temperature control is easy once you get the hang of it with intake dampers down low and outflow dampers on the top (wear gloves). The design of these dampers is an important differentiator between models. Some work better than others. But get a kamado started, bring it to temp, and there’s little need to touch it until the meat is ready.

When you are done cooking, close the dampers, and it is easy to starve the coals and you have leftover coals for the next cook. The interior is more or less self cleaning so it does not need to be scrubbed. In fact, wire brushes can damage the surface. The only cleanup is to brush the ash out the bottom, and scrape the cooking grates.

Some of them come from the factory with a deflector plate that sits between the coals and the food for indirect cooking. Some sell it as an option. You need it. A lot of the cooking you will do with it, especially smoking, needs this plate.

Advantages of the oval shaped kamado and the problems of round kamados

I am a very strong believer in the 2-zone system for grilling. The concept is to place the coals on one side of the grill and leave the other side without coals. On a gas grill you turn on the burners on one side but not on the other. With 2-zones you can move food from very hot direct radiant infrared heat to mild indirect convection heat quickly and easily. This is rapid temperature control and temperature control is the secret to all cooking. Please click this link to see why 2-zones are so important. The secret to effective 2-zone cooking is that you can have one side where there is direct radiant heat from coals near the surface for radiant heat searing, and the other side can be much lower in temp and cook with only convection air. So you have two distinct cooking methods and two distinct cooking zones. This provides the cook with important control options.

Because of its oval shape, the Primo (left in the picture) can be easily set up for 2-zone cooking and the large diameter Komodo Kamado (at the top of the page) has an optional insert plate that covers the coals on one side creating a 2-zone system. A few other kamados have created special dividers to facilitate 2-zone cooking but they really don’t do a great job of creating two zones with 100 to 200°F difference in temp or more. That’s partially because the kamado is round and the cooking surface is narrow and partially due to the kamado’s chief asset, the thick insulating walls. On a ceramic unit the walls abosorb so much heat it is pretty even all over. A great advantage when it comes to smoking, baking, pizza making, and roasting. A great disadvantage when it comes to 2-zone grilling. Here is a Primo set up for zone cooking wqith different temps on the left and right, and with the optional upper grate.

Yes, you can use the deflector plate to cook indirect on a round kamado, but then you have to put on your gloves and remove it to switch to direct or visa versa. When the unit is hot, this maneuver can be tricky and it is not as quick and easy as sliding a steak or a piece of chicken or even a burger from side to side as you can on a conventional grill. Another option is to use only one half of a split deflector like this one from Kamado Joe (it can also be used as a pizza stone).

Here is a video from Primo showing how they use a 2-zone setup to do reverse searing on a steak, a method that delivers the best even interior color. Read more on the method here. And no, this is not a paid ad.

All is not lost if you have a round 11/2″ kamado like the Big Green Egg, There is a product on the market that does a respectable job of giving you a 2-zone setup, and more. The


You should always wear fire resistant gloves, the longer the better, when opening a kamado. To prevent flashover fireballs, slowly open the top damper a bit and wait a minute. Open the lid slowly and stand to the side rather than the front. Called “burping” a kamado, Linkletter says “It is safest for a new user to always assume that flashover conditions are present and to use the utmost care whenever opening their cooker.”

Here’s what to look for as you shop for your next dishwasher

Also, be willing to negotiate. Like with cars, you should be able to walk away with large appliances for a chunk off of their listed price.

Other than price, here are the biggest factors to consider to help you narrow down your choices.

Drying performance

Like washing performance, drying performance doesn’t vary directly with price and you won’t be able to determine this quality on your own while shopping. Check to see if the dishwasher has options for extra drying, but even that might not lead to the perfect results you’re looking for. If dry dishes are important to you, our product reviews can help point you in the right direction.

Our reviews detail the performance and drying scores of every model. The Bosch SHS63VL5UC is our best performer so far.


Much more so than with cycles, the options you can add to a cycle vary wildly from dishwasher to dishwasher. In addition to adding drying time, some dishwashers let you just wash the top or bottom rack. Others let you add steam to the cleaning or adjust the temperature of the rinse water.

Look the options over to see if one fits your well into how you’d like to use your dishwasher. You will tend to get more options at higher prices.

The Electrolux EI24ID30QS has lots of options you can add on to your cycle.


Speaking of efficiency, the Environmental Protection Agency uses its EnergyStar rating system to recommend products that save energy without sacrificing features or functionality. You can find this rating — as well as a dishwasher’s estimated energy use and cost per year — on the yellow tag on the front of the machine.

Eve is an online only brand that has developed one mattress to fit all, with an ethos of keeping things simple, beautiful and affordable for every budget.

The Eve mattress comprises of three stacked layers: a high density base layer, a breathable cooling layer and a new generation memory foam layer to top it off. What’s different from the standard pure base foam is that Eve use an ultra resilient Reflex base foam that reacts to your movements, making the whole mattress reactive to your needs.

The memory layer is unlike other leading memory-foam mattresses where you get that sinking feeling, quite literally. The high-point elasticity has been developed to provide a responsive, soft cushioning without cocooning the contours of the body.

Simba Hybrid Mattress

The Simba Hybrid is one of the new breed of mattresses that pops out of a handy-sized box. It’s the way the world of mattress shopping is going, as it’s convenient and super easy – order it today, get it tomorrow and trial it for 100 nights! Once unleashed from its box, the mattress takes 3-hours to fully take shape, ready for a night’s sleep.

Simba Sleep claims its high-tech mattress satisfies the sleep needs of 95% of the population. With odds that high, we asked what makes it so ground breaking? James Cox – CEO and co-founder of Simba Sleep told us, ‘It’s the first dual-spring and memory-foam mattress of its kind in the UK market. Its cutting-edge technology offers the comfort of five layers of memory foam with the support of 2,500 patented conical pocket springs.’

The patented springs make these mattresses unique, moving horizontally and vertically to fit the shape of your body and give you the best sleep. The Simbatex layer provides cool, gentle support, whilst the Visco memory foam moulds expertly to your body shape. It’s like a mattress that’s tailor-made for you.

Hovag Pocket Sprung Mattress

This is Ikea’s best-selling mattress by a mile! There’s no denying its unbelievable value, ideal for those on a budget. Take note first-time buyers and renters! One of the Ideal Home team was so impressed after testing it that they went and bought it. They describe it as the perfect balance between firm support and comfort.

You get support in all the right places thanks to the individually wrapped pocket springs that work independently and closely to follow the contours of your body. It’s designed to be slept on one side only, therefore it doesn’t require turning – although it’s fairly light. This is the best cheap mattress you can get.

Tempur Cloud 2Medium Mattress

The original masters of memory foam, the Tempur design model provides a top comfort layer made of a specially developed ‘extra Soft’ material for a feeling of instant relaxation. This unique fabric was designed to regulate temperature and humidity. Aptly named the cloud, the nature of this mouldable mattress material cocoons your body as it reacts to your body heat, making it ideal for relieving pressure points, such as hips and spine.

Working in perfect harmony with the lower support layers, once you settle your body weight is redistributed reducing pressure while you sleep. In addition to the comfort factor, this mattress also features a removable and washable cover, which is ideal if you are an allergy sufferer.

The Drysdale Pocket Sprung Mattress

This is the best-selling model from UK sleep experts Button & Sprung. Founder Adam Black tells us this is popular due to the unique IQ Spring system and six-layers of all-natural filling – with cotton, that’s strong, breathable and temperature-responsive.

The IQ system is something the Button & Sprung team developed exclusively. It provides an advanced level of comfort by offering ‘progressive support’. In other words, the more you push it the more it pushes back so everyone, regardless of their weight, gets exactly the right amount of support.


The bigger and fancier the fridge, the more it will cost to buy. On the upside, some of the latest large capacity fridges are more energy efficient to run than previous models with offer power-saving features such as Eco and Vacation mode.


The fridge door in any family home is opened all the time, so one of the best family friendly features to look for is intelligent temperature control, which automatically adjusts the temperature of your fridge and freezer so that it remains constant whatever the conditions.

Also look out for fridges with electronic temperature control panels, which allow you to set different temperatures for the separate areas of your fridge, as well as ‘quick cooling’ and ‘quick freeze’ options.


Reduce food wastage and keep your fridge fresher for longer with some of the new hygiene and vitamin-optimising features on the fridge market today. Some of the latest models have special anti-bacterial coatings on the doors and walls to prevent unhealthy bacteria from forming inside your fridge, while vitamin-enhancing features keep your fruit and vegetables at their peak for longer to save you money at the supermarket checkout.


If you have an open plan kitchen-living-dining room, or your child is a light sleeper, then you may appreciate a fridge that barely makes a peep when it’s running.

LG’s new P197DPSL side by side fridge has a super-quiet Linear compressor.

Fill a large pot with water. Place a steamer rack inside. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Using tongs, place three crabs on the rack in an even layer, with belly side down. Gently place remaining crabs on top. Sprinkle with two tablespoons of Old Bay. Steam for 2to 30 minutes. (One way to know when they’re done is that yellowish, white fat should be steamed out.) Using tongs, remove crabs to a platter. Sprinkle with remaining Old Bay and dry mustard. Serves to Courtesy of Jimmy Fowler, assistant manager at Pappas. “If you’re squeamish, you should probably have someone else steam them. Even I’ve never really gotten used to it.”—Pappas’s Jimmy Fowler


Old Bay may be synonymous with Baltimore, but it’s just as easy to blend your own signature mix. Used on fish, shrimp, and other types of seafood, a rub acts as a marinade, enhancing the flavor of food as it cooks. Local chefs Opie Crooks of Shoo-Fly Diner and Jerry Pellegrino of Waterfront Kitchen weigh in with these simple-to-make rub recipes. For each rub, mix in a bowl, then store in a cool, dry place.

Brown paper vs. newspaper

The professionals use heavy brown paper—it’s print-free, and easy to discard at feast’s end. If you’re carrying out, most joints will provide brown paper, but if you’re going the D-I-Y route, several layers of newspaper work just as well.

Serving Options

A traditional Maryland-style crab feast entails serving the savory swimmers straight up on a paper-covered table or on paper or plastic platters. If you want a fancier feast, pile in a pail or present on a pretty, nautical-themed platter.


Each spring, soft-shell crabs appear on Maryland menus as a seasonal specialty. The crabs, plucked from the water just after molting their outer shells, make for a delicacy necessitating neither the mallets nor the patience required when eating steamed crabs. Prepping soft-shells, however, is anything but dainty. (Cut behind the mouth and eyes with sharp shears, rip off face, remove gills and apron.) Though most fishmongers sell soft-shells already prepped, there’s an “ick” factor even with the cleanest of crabs. “I recommend easing someone into soft-shells with a sandwich,” says Ryn Dorsey, executive chef at Kali’s Court and Mezze. “They’re not seeing as much of the crab.” on top. Place soft-shells on salad. Serves 2.


Preferably flecked with cranberries, raisins, or even pineapple, this earthy sidekick salad doesn’t dominate but marries well with crusty crab. Don’t want to make it yourself? Try it from Graul’s Market, 12200 Tullamore Rd., Lutherville, 410-308-2100.

A mayonnaise–based sauce, typically blended with pickles, capers, and lemon juice.

A French version of tartar sauce that can contain anchovies and horseradish, among other ingredients.

Citrus adds a bright note to crab and can also be used to squeeze on fingers after you’ve consumed crab.


In a medium-sized bowl, mix together all ingredients except crab. Fold in crab. Press into six cakes and place on buttered sheet pan. Bake at 400 degrees for to 1minutes until golden. Yields six crab cakes. From executive chef Medford Canby.

The Insider Pick

Busy cooks have been turning out delicious, easy, convenient meals in their Crock-Pots since the early 1970s. We researched the dozens of available Crock-Pot slow cookers on today’s market to find the best ones you can buy, and the 6-Quart Programmable Cook-and-Carry is our top pick.

I’m a huge Crock-Pot fan. After all, what other kitchen appliance allows you to toss in your dinner in the morning, and then drive off to work while it cooks to perfection? What other kitchen tool turns out tasty meals without heating up your kitchen? Or miraculously converts inexpensive, can-be-tough cuts of meat into tender, falling-off-the-bone deliciousness? I’ve had several of these handy appliances over the past three decades, and use my current slow cooker at least once a week. Every kitchen – whether it’s in a dorm room, studio apartment, or mansion – deserves a Crock-Pot.

Using your Crock-Pot

Introduced by the Rival Company in 1971, and owned today by Sunbeam, the original Crock-Pot was intended for cooking beans. Today, you can cook just about anything in this handy kitchen appliance, including obvious dishes like soups, stews, and casseroles, but also desserts including cheesecake, breakfasts, side dishes, corn on the cob, risotto, French toast, and so much more — the list is nearly endless.

Regardless of which Crock-Pot you choose, you’ll achieve the best results by following these tips:

Don’t preheat your slow cooker before adding ingredients.

Place chopped vegetables at the bottom of your Crock-Pot, then add meat, then finish with liquid or soft ingredients. Hold off on anything dairy until the last half-hour or so of cooking.

Don’t take off the lid in the middle of the cooking process; it can take 30 minutes for the slow cooker to regain its full temperature.

Your Crock-Pot should be half-to-three-quarters full when you start cooking. Less, and your food is likely to overcook or dry out; more, and the Crock-Pot might overflow as the food expands with heat.

Use skinless chicken in your slow cooker; the melted fat will add an unpleasant taste and texture to your finished dish.

Add fresh herbs and seasonings at the end of the cooking cycle. Otherwise, you’ll lose delicate flavors.   

Unless the recipe calls for it, don’t put frozen food in your Crock-Pot.

As a rule of thumb, one hour on the high setting of a Crock-Pot is equal to two hours on the low setting, so figure your cooking time accordingly.

If you’re getting ready to buy your first Crock-Pot – or you want to add one with unique features to your collection – then read on. We’ve whittled down the many models of Crock-Pot on the market to the five that are most highly rated, and that we feel are the most useful. best knife sharpeners, and more on 

Insider Picks

Although the Crock-Pot 6-Quart Programmable Cook-and-Carry is our top pick, for various reasons laid out in the slides below, you should also consider the 3-Quart Round Manual Crock-Pot, the Crock-Pot Hook Up Connectable Entertaining System, the 3.5-Quart Casserole Crock-Pot, and the Crock-Pot Lunch Crock.


Why you’ll love it: The 6-Quart Programmable Cook-and-Carry Crock-Pot is big enough for a crowd with a lockable lid for easy transport and it has programmable cooking times.

Crock-Pot Programmable Cook-and-Carry solves one slow cooker concern: What do you do if you’ll be gone for ten hours, but the meal you’re preparing only needs to cook for eight? No need to worry if you have this convenient slow cooker. Just set the timer for your desired cooking time before you head out. 

You can set cooking times from 30 minutes to 20 hours and leave your worries behind. The Crock-Pot will cook your dinner to perfection, and then automatically switch itself over to the “Warm” setting once the time is up.

With a six-quart capacity, this is the perfect Crock-Pot for larger families. You can fit a six-pound roast inside, several pieces of meat along with vegetables, or go ahead and roast a whole chicken in it — you’ll still have room for carrots and potatoes.

The Sweethome likes this Crock-Pot, praising its long timer, modern appearance, handles, and locking lid. That locking lid with its sealing gasket is another fine feature of this Crock-Pot — no more spills when traveling with the cooker to a picnic, potluck, or tailgate party. are pleased with this slow cooker as well. It has nearly 3,600 reviews and an average of 4.stars. Buyers like the large capacity, the programmable timer, and the sleek appearance. Several owners complained that the Crock-Pot seemed to run too hot on the “Low” setting, however. 

Note that both the “Low” and “High” settings of a Crock-Pot reach the same maximum temperature of roughly 2degrees. It just takes longer to reach the maximum temperature on low.

The locking lid is a hit. Says one pleased owner, “The slow cooker tipped over once in the car while full of sloppy joe meat, and to my surprise when I arrived at my destination, not a drop of the sloppy joe meat (or sauce) leaked out.” : Locking lid with gasket, programmable timer, large capacity, stainless steel finish, and modern appearance : Might cook too hot on low setting

Hook Up system.

The crocks are mix-and-match and there are several metallic colors to choose from, as well as multiple sizes. Each has the basic manual settings: “Off,” “Warm,” “Low,” and “High.” But what sets the Hook Up apart from other Crock-Pot slow cookers is that you can connect up to six units together with only one plug going into an electrical outlet.

The different sizes make it so easy to cook and serve various dishes: Use the 1-quart double crock for dips and savories; a 2-quart crock for meatballs, hot wings, and similar finger foods; and a 3.5-quart crock for meats, stews, soups, or chili dishes. Or, of course, you can use just one crock to prepare a small meal or side dish for your family. like this nifty Crock-Pot system. It has more than 400 reviews and an average of 4.stars. Owners mentioned the wide range of foods they’ve prepared and served in the crocks, along with the convenience of keeping everything at serving temperature through the entire event. A typical

Give these three easy vegan recipes a try

For me this is a wonderful opportunity to kill two birds with one stone: I can use the juice pulp that is a byproduct of my daily juicing regimen and I can make some delicious Thanksgiving side dishes for my vegan guests. Note: I am not a vegan but many of my friends are, so I want to make sure everybody has plenty of options to choose from at my table. geeez, that was a whole day of shootin’ & cookin’

Quick Tips

If you’re in a hurry, here are the most important things to consider before you buy a television. We explain each of these points in greater detail in the text below:

Don’t buy a TV with less than 4K resolution (i.e., avoid 1080p sets) if you want a future-proof set.

LED and LCD Sets

Most LCD sets use LEDs on the edge of the screen. The better of these models support active dimming, but it takes some digital sorcery to do this by merely manipulating lights along the edge.

Full-array LED sets have light-emitting diodes directly behind the screen, in a grid of “zones” that can be lit up or darkened individually. Such an arrangement makes the backlight more precise and allows a more-detailed picture regarding contrast. Full-array backlighting was once reserved for top-tier models, but with more Ultra HD sets appearing at lower prices, this feature is becoming more common on modestly priced sets.

Another LCD technology, called quantum dots, is becoming more common, spurred on by the requirements of HDR to produce a wider array of colors and more brightness. An LCD that uses quantum dots basically has another layer, or added “rail,” of different size nanocrystal dots that light up when the LED backlight hits them. The result is a wider color spectrum and increased brightness.

Be aware that some brands offer confusing labels. Samsung’s newest sets are dubbed “QLED.” These are quantum-dot LCD TVs — not to be mistaken for OLED.

Wide array of prices, sizes and features; Some affordable Ultra HD 4K models; Bright screens visible even in a sunny room; Image quality steadily improving with full-array backlighting and quantum-dot technology.


OLED TVs go one better than full-array LED-LCDs with a few dozen lighting zones. In place of a backlight, OLEDs use a layer of organic LEDs, controlled at the pixel level, to achieve absolute black and stunning levels of contrast. (Footage of fireworks against a black sky is a favorite demonstration of OLED technology.)

LG isn’t the only company actively pursuing OLED technology in large screen sizes, with new OLED models arriving from Panasonic, Philips and Sony

Best TV picture, bar none; Colors truly pop, deeper blacks and better contrast and shadow detail than LCD TVs achieve; Retains image quality when viewed from the side.

Stratospheric prices; lower peak brightness than some LCD sets, uncertainty about how screens will fare over time, including whether they will retain “ghost” images (also known as burn-in) from displaying a static picture for too long.

Red cabbage with redcurrant jelly

A classic Christmas vegetable side dish. Adding redcurrant jelly and balsamic vinegar gives the cabbage a sweet and sour edge and a wonderfully glossy sauce. If you want to get ahead, this veggie side can be made up to two days before and reheated on Christmas Day to save time.

Salt and pepper parsnips

A portion of roast parsnips is the unique Christmas vegetable side dish. Try our sweet parsnips with a hot, peppery edge. They’re super easy to make and require minimum effort. Make them this Christmas and leave everyone feeling full and satisfied after Christmas dinner.

Creamed spinach with Nutmeg and gruyère

If you fancy an indulgent Christmas vegetable side dish, this is the one for you. Full of cheese and cream, it’s the perfect accompaniment to turkey and roast potatoes (here are our top recipes). It’ll go down well with even the fussy eaters!

Ghee-roasted spiced roots

A Christmas side dish with a twist. Check out our vegetarian ghee-roasted spiced roots recipe. These roasted roots make for a great side for Christmas Day. Ghee can be used in place of butter or oil in any recipe. It has a high smoke point, which means it can be used for roasting, frying or even deep-fat frying.

Sprouts with ginger and orange

Sprouts – the Christmas dinner side dish that everybody loves to hate. This is a great way to spruce up your sprouts to make sure everyone will be coming back for more. The orange and ginger adds a nice fiery sweetness and blanching them for just 3-minutes means they have just the right amount of bite. Try making these to jazz up your Christmas Day dinner.

This recipe for honey-roasted sweet potato with red onions is a great way to spice up your Christmas side dishes when entertaining over the festive period. It’s really easy to make but delivers big flavours.

Crisp greens with shallot, pancetta and chestnut butter

Try this new take on Brussels sprouts for your Christmas dinner. You can have the greens blanched and butter made for this in advance, then you just need to heat through to serve.

Kale with parsnips and cream 

Kale is a really trendy ingredient at the moment. It has a robust texture and flavour can be used instead of cabbage or spinach in recipes. Cooked with parsnips, cream and nutmeg it makes an indulgent Christmas vegetable side dish.
