Tired of eating your favorite movie snack out of a noisy, greasy bag? Check out this Cuisinart PartyPop Popcorn Maker ($80). It can pop up to ten cups of popcorn in under five minutes, the popcorn pops straight into a clear bowl that simply flips to serve, and you get to decide how much and what kind of flavor your popcorn will be. Now you can finally make that nacho-flavored popcorn you keep telling everyone about. [Thanks, Rick]
As technology has evolved over the years, kitchen tech has unfortunately lagged behind. LG is doing its best to make up for lost time with its new LSC27990TT LCD TV Refrigerator ($3500-$3700; Q2). While keeping its food-storing attributes fresh — it is a refrigerator after all — it also features a 15" LCD TV in the right side door that is cable-ready and has connectors for a DVD player, as well as a 4" LCD above the left door ice/water dispenser that features weather reports, date/time, calendar, recipies, and a personal photo album you can populate via a USB port. Other features include an in-door ice maker that frees up more space for food, an Opti-Fresh crisper that keeps food good longer by using an indirect cooling system, and a Grab-n-go door basket, wine rack, and tilting door bins. Emeril would be proud. [via]
