Summertime means outdoor parties, cookouts with friends and family, and plenty of cutting edge cooking (and other) gadgets and accessories! If you're thinking of upgrading your summer experience, check out this list!

The Big Green Egg: 
This amazing, egg-shaped device is a ceramic charcoal barbecue cooker. Its design was modeled after the clay cooking receptacles seen during the Qin Dynasty. Ceramics and a patented draft door and vent cap offer a range of adjustable cooking temps, whether you want to sear meat on a high temp or do a low-and-slow smoking technique. Cook meat, veggies, and fish to perfection on this fantastic combo cooker!

Ice Cream Maker:
What’s better than freshly-made ice cream on a hot summer night? Whip up your own batch with an ice cream maker at home and use fresh, all-natural ingredients. Create a sundae bar for friends & family to make their own with an array of tempting toppings!

Frozen Drink Machine:
A drink machine is a fun and convenient way to keep the drinks flowing at your gatherings. Toss in ice, fruit, your choice of liquids, and set it to blend. Create refreshingly delicious slushies for the kids or frozen margaritas, pina coladas or daiquiris for adults!

Pizza Grilling Stone:
When you’re in the midst of a heatwave and the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven to cook pizza, take it outside to the grill! Put a pizza stone on the grill, preheat it, then slide your assembled pizza on the stone to cook. It’ll be done in under 15 minutes!

Sous Vide Immersion Circulator:
This useful gadget, which involves cooking in a precisely heated water bath, makes it quick and easy to get precisely cooked, tender steaks, flaky fish, and perfect eggs, especially if you are cooking for a crowd. For steaks, you can sous vide for the initial cooking session, then quickly sear the meat on the grill for the perfect, most tender bite!

Switch up your usual pasta for the veggie variety--created with a spiralizer. This nifty gadget lets you make spiral “pasta” from sweet potatoes, zucchini, beets, squash, cabbage, and so many more fruits and veggies! Mix with a simple tomato sauce, cheese, or olive oil and garlic for a light and summery meal.

Do you love grilling, but loathe cleaning up afterward? With the handy little Grillbot, your days of scraping and sloughing are over. Simply place this little “vacuum robot” atop the grill grate and it will do its thing. An alarm will alert you when the job is done, so you don’t have to stand around waiting for it to finish!

Other fun accessories:

Electronic Mosquito Racquet:
Keep bugs at bay with this tennis racquet style mosquito zapper! Your guests will thank you for thinking of their comfort, and there’s a sense of satisfaction using this fun gadget.

Portable Music:
"Tailgater" bluetooth speakers are essential for keeping the party going, no matter who your audience is! 

There are plenty of options when it comes to making your summer nights--and days--unique, fun, and memorable!
