Men's Health (UK) - - The Tech Issue – Better Living -

01 The Sous Chef

Once the pre­serve of top chefs, sous-vide tech­niques are now avail­able to even the least in­dus­tri­ous home cook. Bag your meat or veg, se­lect the level of “done­ness” on the app and the Joule heats the wa­ter pre­cisely. It’s voice ac­ti­vated, too – use­ful if your hands are dirty (or oc­cu­pied with a wine glass). Joule £ 189 chef­steps.com

02 The Macro Man­ager

It isn’t easy to ad­here to your macros with­out re­sort­ing to a tire­some ro­ta­tion of pro­teins and greens. This smart scale makes things sim­pler: se­lect a recipe from its data­base, and it logs ev­ery item as you weigh it. Recipes can even be rescaled, if you find your­self with ex­tra eggs to use up or, God for­bid, short of an av­o­cado. Drop Scale £60 get­drop.com

03 The Cut­ting Edge

Sav­er­nake knives are crafted ac­cord­ing to your spec­i­fi­ca­tions, whether you’re af­ter a brawny chef’s knife or a nim­ble veg-slicer. Though de­signed us­ing 3D mod­el­ling tech­niques, they’re hand-built, re­sult­ing in light­weight uten­sils that are bloody sharp. Sav­er­nake Knives from £ 150 sav­er­nakeknives.co.uk

04 The Whizz Kid

Any blender can blitz a pile of fruit, but how many can tell you its sugar con­tent and sug­gest a bet­ter way to make the smoothie? Whether you’re gluten­free or Pa­leo, the Nutribul­let Bal­ance will give you a be­spoke nutri­tion plan, then of­fer recipes based on the con­tents of your cup­board. Fussy eaters, re­joice. Nutribul­let Bal­ance £ 150 nutribul­let bal­ance.com

05 The Hot Buzz

Brew­ing cof­fee should be a rit­ual, not a chore. Not only does this siphon look like a sci­en­tific in­stru­ment, its vac­uum-brew­ing tech­nique ex­tracts max­i­mum nu­tri­ents from your beans, while its fish-bowl de­sign lets you ob­serve the process – a lot more fun than wait­ing for the ket­tle to boil. Bo­dum epebo £ 199 bo­dum.com

06 The Iron Knight

Any se­ri­ous chef needs a near-in­de­struc­tible cast-iron pan, free of chem­i­cal coat­ings and great at hold­ing heat. Formed from a sin­gle piece of iron, this pan is half the usual weight and has a vented neck to pro­tect your fin­gers. It also has a mul­ti­cen­tury warranty, so you can pass it on to your ro­bot but­ler. Solidteknics Aus-ion Skil­let £ 128 solidteknics.com

07 The Liquid As­set

Now that the plas­ticfree move­ment has made fac­tory-bot­tled wa­ter taboo, you need a new way to score fresh, fil­tered H2O. The Brita Water­bar re­moves im­pu­ri­ties, bad tastes and odours, with the ad­di­tional op­tions of chilled or warm. Brita Water­bar WD 3030 from £ 299 brita.co.uk
