iDevices Kitchen Thermometer review:
This meat thermometer is well-done  $80.00

At a glance
The Kitchen Thermometer has a white plastic finish and metal accents. It measures 3.75 inches long by 3.25 inches wide by 2 inches tall and weighs 5.9 ounces (95 by 83 by 51mm; 167 grams). While it's clearly larger than the brand's $40/£35/AU$50 Kitchen Thermometer Mini, this palm-size gadget is still pretty compact.

Snap it on the included magnetic base for seamless mounting to your oven or any oven-adjacent spot that's magnetic. An industrial-strength adhesive is also included for mounting to non-magnetic surfaces.

The device comes with two meat probes and two probe wraps for tangle-free storage. Each probe cord is 48 inches (1.2 meters) long, which can easily reach from a nearby spot into your oven. This unit is battery-powered, but unlike the Kitchen Thermometer Mini or iGrill Mini, which take CR2032 coin batteries, this model requires two AA batteries. I'm more likely to have a couple of spare AAs hanging around, so that's a vote in the Kitchen Thermometer's favor.   $350.00

For noodlephiles, the Philips Noodle Maker looks like a dream come true. Retailing at S$329 ($263, £160, AU$293) in Singapore, the clunky machine easily blends flour and egg together and turns the resulting dough into noodles in less than 10 minutes. For those living in the US, the Noodle Maker is available for $349 as the Philips Avance Collection Pasta Maker.

If you're travelling to Asia, the Noodle Maker is available in four countries -- Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore, and you should be able to pick one up at any large electrical appliance store. Do note that the model in Japan runs on 110V while Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore are 240V models.

Over a weekend I put the Philips Noodle Maker through its paces. While it's a far cry from my usual beat of mobile phones, I consider myself something of a pasta and noodle fanatic. The great news is that the Noodle Maker delivers on its promise of good, easy noodles
