Worth the squeeze?: "Masticating, triturating, centrifugal extraction, cold-press and pulp ejection: the lexicon of juicing abounds in blogs, on television and on book and magazine covers. But what does all this juice-speak mean, exactly? Does fresh juice consumption herald a lasting change in the American diet, or is juicing simply a fad that will fade?" Read more about juicing from this article found in Bucks County Courier Times and Burlington County Times.

Gastrolux: "'At Kitchen Kapers, we are always seeking to bring our customers the best in innovative kitchenware. After nearly six months of careful product evaluation, we're excited to announce that we now carry Gastrolux Biotan Nonstick Cookware. The products are carefully crafted in Denmark and this cutting edge cookware features a durable nonstick surface that stands up to heavy use unlike any other nonstick on the market.

Evo Oil Sprayer: "K of P company solves an oily problem for cooks: Over the years, there have been many evolutions of nozzles - some that just spray, some that spray or stream, some that convert substances into foam. But one product has proved perplexing from a dispensing standpoint: food oil.

'Trigger sprayers really don't produce enough pressure to break up the oils and make a spray out of them,' (Marc) Zuckerman said.

His company has changed that.

In conjunction with the Netherlands company Afa Dispensing Group, another veteran in the trigger-sprayer business, Delta has developed what it says is the first trigger sprayer that can atomize oils. It's called EVO, a name Zuckerman explained this way: 'It's the middle of revolutionary.'

Olive, canola, peanut and vegetable oils, and most liquid butters, can be dispensed by the trigger sprayer. The oils are typically used to grease grills, skillets, and other kitchen utensils...

Delta turned to Michael Graves Design in Princeton for options. It settled on a clear, 18-ounce hemispherical plastic bottle with a red, ergonomically correct trigger and an adjustable nozzle that emits a fan-shaped spray in either a horizontal or vertical pattern. It comes with three reversible, colored bands to identify the types of liquid inside the bottle, and a screw-on funnel for easy refill....

Finalized last month, the retail version of EVO is expected on store shelves for the first time this week - in the 13 Kitchen Kapers stores in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware, and on

Bug Pops: "On hot and humid days, a Popsicle serves as the perfect portable cooling station. Parents lure their kids outside to play, saying, 'You’ll be cool enough with one of these,' with maybe a muttered aside, 'And out of my hair and away from the TV and computer for a while.' Keep in mind that if you make your own, you’ll control the ingredients, plus you and your kids can have fun playing with some of the colorful ice pop molds on the market. Check out the Bug Pops on Kitchen Kapers’ website ( — they have a store on Hulfish Street)..." As featured in The Princeton Packet.

Twin Pops: "These retro-style Twin Pops make two pops in each mold - not that you need to share." As featured in Food Network Magazine.

American cooking: A melting pot of foreign flavors: "If the American melting pot was an actual piece of cookware, it would be filled with Mexican tacos, Chinese eggrolls, Danish pastries, Japanese sushi and, of course, Italian pasta and pizza... Kitchen Kapers in Moorestown’s East Gate Square hosts Italian and Asian cooking classes for children and adults. “The kids have a great time. Adults, they just love it. Couples can do it together,” said Kyle, store manager. Kyle said a new line of quesadilla makers to use on barbecue grills are popular. The store also sells a lot of pizza stones. They can be used in both regular ovens and on barbecue grills. The Big Green Egg, a high-heat grill, is perfect for making pizza, he said. “It heats up so hot. You can heat it to 750 degrees and get a good crust,” he said.

Sales associate Sue said French-made LeCreuset porcelain-lined iron cookware is great for stews and roasts, since it keeps the meat moist during the cooking process and the food doesn’t get stuck to the pot as easily as with other cookware. She uses it to make sauerbraten, a German beef dish, as well as chicken breasts cooked Basque-style with ham. The store recently started carrying a line of German clayware casserole dishes that have glazed linings for easier cleanup.

Having a Hawaiian luau this summer? Kitchen Kapers offers coffee with coconut shavings. When the coffee is ground the shavings release their tropical flavor. During the Christmas holidays, the store sells snickerdoodle cookie recipes that originated with the Pennsylvania Dutch. Some customers also buy a pound of snickerdoodle-flavored coffee to serve with the cookies at holiday parties or to give as a gift with the cookies. The store is especially busy right before any holiday for which people like to cook, said Kitchen Kapers assistant manager Kim..." As featured on

Elizabeth Karmel's Grill Friends Silicone Brush - "Silicone basting brushes solve so many problems - traditional brushes shed, melt and are troublesome to keep clean. Add a comfortably angled handle, and basting is easier than ever. Sadly, the ergonomic handle on this one likes to topple out of the sauce bowl, and is just not quite long enough for a hot grill. Great idea, imperfect design." As featured in the Chicago Tribune.

AnimalHouse Gadgets and The Greens Gadgets - Designs that marry function and whimsy: "The idea of a punk rock dish brush with a mohawk for bristles is preposterous enough.

Shun Ken Onion 8" Chef's Knife: "Knife designers worship Ken Onion. (Yes, that's his real name. Yes, he knows it's funny: 'Chive' and 'Scallion' are the names of some of his designs.) He breaks the mold again with this unconventional design for Shun, a favorite in our test kitchen for its exceptional ergonomics. The exaggerated curve of the edge makes for a smoother rocking motion when chopping." -- As featured on

Universal Fry Pan Lid: "Many skillets - including our favorite stainless fry pans from All-Clad - come without lids, and shelling out for matching covers to each individual pan ($33.95 to $49.95 each) seems wasteful. Wondering if an inexpensive universal lid would do just as well - most models sport grooved rings ranging from 8 to 12 inches in diameter and claim to fit a variety of standard-size pans - we boiled water and prepared French omelets, rice pilaf, and braised vegetables (all of which require a tight-fitting lid) in our favorite All-Clad 8-, 10-, and 12-inch skillets and 4-quart saucepan, covering each vessel with four different universal lids and its All-Clad counterpart. Unfortunately, none of the lids was a one-size-fits-all solution - their roughly 12-inch diameters loosely covered the 8-inch skillet and saucepan - though most fit snugly on larger skillets. Our favorite, the Progressive Stainless-Steel Universal Fry Pan Lid..., featured an adjustable vent that prevented steam pressure from building up, helping it stay put on both the 10- and 12-inch skillets. In fact, it even kept more liquid from evaporating than the All-Clad lids themselves - and at a fraction of the price." -- As featured in the "Equipment Corner" in Cook's Illustrated, January and February 2011.

Pizza Saver Bags: With Americans eating an estimate of over 30,000,000 slices of pizza a day, it's a wonder that, when it comes to storing the leftovers, we're still struggling with cardboard boxes too big for the fridge and ill-fitting aluminum foil. That's why Mama Fresco developed pizza saver bags. These triangular shaped bags are easy to open and close and perfect for protecting individual slices and keeping them fresh. As featured on Today.

The Greens: "How Green Was My Kitchen - If this recycled plastic and wood family of kitchen tools could adopt Ed Begley Jr., they'd be the most eco-friendly clan on Earth." As featured on "The O List" in O The Oprah Magazine.

Kitchen Kapers endures for another busy Christmas: With Christmas just days away, the packing room at Kitchen Kapers' Cherry Hill warehouse was loaded last week with wares workers wrapped for online holiday orders: Cuisinart hand mixers; oil decanters; ice cream scoops; All-Clad saucepans with lids.

In a nook a few feet away, a family of brothers and sons named Kratchman dug into cardboard boxes of newly arrived merchandise. Steeled against an icy draft with coats and jeans, they removed Shantoku knives, one by one, and priced them.

This housewares company has been through a lot of Christmases in 35 years, since it began as a single store opened by the father, now deceased, whom the Kratchman brothers recall fondly with tears. Read More.

Sara Moulton piques our interest and our appetites with her new book, Everyday Family Dinners.

"You may remember Sara Moulton from her ten year stint at the Food Network or her many appearances on Good Morning America or as the Executive Chef of Gourmet magazine. But she is also a knowledgeable, charming and, oh so funny, cooking teacher, as she demonstrated this morning at Kitchen Kapers in Princeton.

"Sara was in the area promoting her new book Everyday Family Dinners and everyone in attendance was lucky enough watch her cook and then taste two delicious dishes from the book - Polenta Lasagna and Warm Chocolate Cheesecake.

"Sara said the reason for writing this book is that we always end up making the same boring 10 things. She's come up with 200 recipes to get us out of that rut. She’s a great believer in family dinners and this book is an excellent resource for that."
