If we are honest, we are form of obsessed with foodstuff here at Engadget. Senior information editor Billy Steele is a backyard pitmaster and has the finsta to show it. Editor-in-chief Dana Wollman treats her NYT Cooking recipe box the way players handle their backlog. Commerce writer Nicole Lee has channeled her passions into Instant Pot, sous vide and rice cooker experimentations. And my transition into an Italian grandmother is approximately complete with my desire for laboriously selfmade pasta sauce around the things in retail outlet-acquired jars. We flip to foodie YouTube and TikTok late at night time we trade recipes in Slack and we often use this stellar Person Fieri emoji when issues are, as the little ones say, chef’s kiss.

We are living for meals when we’re not residing for tech, so several of us jumped at the chance to prepare dinner for do the job. Enter Cooking 7 days, our initial kitchen area-concentrated series, exactly where we check out the intersection of cooking and tech, while also testing out some of the most well-known — and wackiest — kitchen gizmos readily available correct now. We dove into the worlds of grills, immersion blenders and, of course, air fryers, and attempted out some substantial-tech appliances that were being overwhelming at first, but that we sooner or later mastered.

Long-time Engadget viewers will know that we’ve prepared about kitchen gizmos ahead of. We have been equipped to squeeze in mentions of electric powered kettles and pizza ovens over the several years, but we see Cooking 7 days as our initially formal love letter to food items on Engadget. We hope that you appreciate studying these stories as significantly as we enjoyed writing them (or, even much better, as a lot as we relished feeding on the spoils of our screening).
