Cooking

These are the Cool Tools that you actually use during the cooking process; that means they have to be easy to use, handy to pick up, and work well without thinking about it, because your focus should be on the food--these Cool Tools take a supporting role.

  1. Architec Recipe Rock

    Architec Recipe Rock

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $9.99

    Why It's Cool: Holds a recipe sheet or card off the counter and at a great angle

    With more of us printing recipes off the internet (maybe even some from Colbrook Kitchen!), someone had to come up with an elegant solution for getting the recipe off the counter and into an upright, readable position...and someone did!

  2. Brabantia Wok Turner

    Brabantia Wok Turner

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $18.00

    Why It's Cool: Silicone encased steel make this strong and flexible for perfect stir fry

    Why a wok turner (kinda like “Why a duck?” if you’re a Marx brothers fan)?

    We all love using a wok turner: the broad-blade and slightly raised sides handle more ingredients faster, which is important in the high-heat environment in which it’s designed to operate. But it’s not just for stir-fry - think about almost anything you cook in a pan - you want to have the advantage of its broader blade, to accomplish the necessary flipping and turning motion, before ingredients stick or burn. This is why a wok turner can be a Cool Tool. But why this wok turner?

    If you’re using a non-stick pan, then you can’t use the traditional steel wok turner. And most of the non-metal wok turners we’ve seen and tested are either too stiff or too thick and don’t have the flexibility, strength and nimbleness to do the job.

    However, the Brabantia Silicone Wok Turner, with a slim metal core and a fine silicone edge, does the job so much better than most … assuring control, flexibility, and no scratching of your nonstick surface.

  3. Camerons Non-Stick Grilling Mesh Baske

    Camerons Non-Stick Grilling Mesh

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $12.99

    Why It's Cool: Keeps your food from dropping through or sticking to your grill

    There are many dishes that can benefit from some grill-time - right? But either they’re too messy to put directly onto the grill - think anything with a saucy marinade - or the ingredients are too small and will fall through the grill - like scallops or vegetables - or they need to be cooked quickly but will stick to the grill - think fish or chicken breasts .…

    But using aluminum foil isn’t a good solution for several reasons: it doesn’t let the flame through to impart flavor or grill marks, it doesn’t let liquid evaporate and can lead to steaming instead of grilling, our turner or tongs are just as likely to cut the foil as to lift the protein cleanly when done, and all that fussing takes time, which can lead to burned or overcooked food.

  4. Camerons Tortilla Warmer

    Camerons Tortilla Warmer

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $7.99

    Why It's Cool: Warms tortillas in the microwave in 45 seconds...keeps them warm and soft for an hour

    With the recent rush away from glutens, we have been looking for appetizing alternatives to wrap our food for easy eating.  We love a nice warm corn tortilla; our favorite filling is Carnitas topped with Pico de Gallo and other traditional accompaniments, but there are so many choices: both traditional and adventurous. This does, however, present a couple of challenges. First, how do you warm the tortillas? And then how do you keep them warm, especially for a crowd? Many approaches to these issues have been less than satisfactory, until now.

  5. Oval Banana Leaf

    Charles Viancin Banana Leaf Silicone Lids

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $15.99

    Why It's Cool: Use instead of plastic wrap for a better seal and greener kitchen...and it's a universal lid on the stove or in the oven or microwave.

    When Kennedy and I started Colbrook Kitchen, we each found a tool that to us epitomized the concept of a Cool Tool: high design, high functionality and unique--something that in all our years of prowling cookware shops, we had never seen. For Kennedy, it was the Joseph Joseph Garlic Rocker, and for me it was the Charles Viancin Lily Pad Lids. And it seems that you all agree, because these are our two best selling Cool Tools.

    A few months ago, when I was making a strata that needed to sit in the refrigerator overnight in a rectangular glass dish, I wondered why the Charles Viancin silicone lids couldn’t be made in squares and rectangles to cover the glass dishes that we all use. So I emailed Charles and asked. I wish I could take credit for turning this idea into a product, but in fact, as great minds run along the same paths, he had already thought of this.

  8. Charles Viancin Cabbage Colander - Large

    Charles Viancin Cabbage Colander

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List

    Why It's Cool: Drains great, rolls up for easy storage (and looks cool)

    Colanders are a necessity in every kitchen … and the use of the plural form is intentional! But they take up so much storage space! The old-style metal versions, and even some of the newer versions in plastic or silicone, are just “too big” to go easily from sink or counter to the refrigerator, and they don’t stack conveniently, unless you have all the same models, and that almost never happens! And even the newest collapsible silicone models aren’t always the slimmest tools in your kitchen!

    And all they do is simply “be a colander” … they only serve a single purpose and don’t always do that well. Does your model have holes in the bottom only? Or do the holes go all the way up the sides? Does it drain efficiently? Or does water collect in the bottom, even though it was supposed to drain out? Does it do its primary job well? And can you do anything else with it? And how much space does it take up?

    Finally, we have a colander that answers all these questions, and more, in all the ways you would hope for … and of course it’s from Charles Viancin, whose designs are Inspired by Nature™ … this new design is no exception to his high standards of beauty and functionality.

  12. Charles Viancin Double Boiler Insert

    Charles Viancin Double Boiler Insert

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $9.99

    Why It's Cool: Easy to store, easy to empty, can be used in microwave, oven or on stovetop

    There are certain times when you really need a double boiler--any time when what you’re cooking is too delicate for direct heat. Melting chocolate or butter are only two examples; my super easy zabaglione from my single days (for each person use 1 egg yolk, ½ egg shell full of sugar, and ½ egg shell full of marsala, and whisk for a long time--until doubled in volume--in a double boiler over simmering water; serve over fresh strawberries) is another.

    The function of a double boiler is necessary in any well-equipped kitchen, but the downsides are that it takes up a lot of space, it can be used only on a cooktop and the shape usually makes it difficult to get all of whatever you’re cooking in it, out of it … even with the best spatula skills. Well, not anymore….
