The Portable Deep Frying Tabletop Grill, Because This is America

Have you ever sat down at a picnic with four servings of fries and eight hamburger patties and just wished you had some way to deep fry and grill those sonsabitches at the same time, with the exact same appliance? Yeah, me too.

Luckily, this Deep Frying Portable Grill made by Hammacher Schlemmer (ermahgerd) just might be the answer to our prayers. Joining the ranks of such self-effacing products as the Best Electric Wine Opener, the Best Commuter Cup and the Best Vacuum Food Sealer, the DFPG folds down to only 10 inches wide and boats the ability to hold “up to 16 oz. of cooking oil” and “up to four servings of chicken wings or French fries” in its center reservoir.

It also promises that its 452 sq. inch grilling surface “accommodates up to eight hamburgers,” and “includes a grate for high-temperature searing, a griddle ideal for cooking bacon or vegetables, and a warming plate that toasts buns.”

Battery powered and equipped with a push-to-start button, the DFPG is so easy a child could and probably will use it, which makes it super-comforting that it can generate temperatures in excess of 600 degrees Fahrenheit and “produce restaurant-worthy charring.”

At least DFPG also comes with a bag “for ease of portability.” Because if you or your child are accidentally going to turn into Two-Face while making deep fried cereal, you’ll probably want something to cover your burns with.

The Deep Frying Portable Grill can be found online for around $209.


This ‘Beer Nutz’ Donut Uses Real Beer in the Filling, Because This is America

Psycho Donuts is a gourmet donut shop with two locations in Northern California, with month after month of continual donut innovation.

This week, the psycho chefs are helping ring in Father’s Day with the launch of their Beer Nutz donut. The crazy raised donut is filled with a Rogue Mocha Porter pastry cream, chocolate icing, beer nuts, and actual multi-flavor beer-mug-drizzle on top. That’s right, beer in the filling.

If you live in the neighboring areas to either of the Psycho Donuts locations, this might be a fun breakfast food you can celebrate Father’s Day with. Don’t ya think?


Someone Made a Party Potato Skin Measuring 2 Feet Long, Because This is America

Every one loves a good potato skin. You know, those delicious appetizers that feature a normal-sized potato with some of the meat scooped out, traditionally filled to the brim with cheese, bacon, cheddar, and a layer of sour cream.

A creative and bearded chef out of Boston recently decided that traditional potato skins were too standard for his tastes.

Instead, he opted to somehow create a mutant potato skin — a frankenstein iteration of a skin that measures 2 feet long. The secret ingredient holding together the jerry-rigged potatoes was a lather of potato starch and water, which resulted in an efficient glue that held through the baking process.

The next level? How about getting all your favorite cuts of steak and sandwiching them together with two of these Party Skins as the bread? Hey…we can dream can’t we?
