If I was going to picture a perfect bachelor pad this Industrial Loft By Diego Revollo ($TBA) would be at the top of my list. The loft is located in Sao Paulo, Brazil and features a style which can only be described as Industrial Chic. The main focal points are the black girders that support the loft area and make up the stairs, and the floor to ceiling windows in the living room. The metal in the unit is softened with plush area rugs and the wooden diningroom table, make the whole feel very comfortable. Surround Speakers throughout the loft make this space perfect for entertaining.
The Uuni 2 Pizza Oven ($300) is the ultimate backyard accessory for this summer. The Uuni takes the cost and hassle out of using a real wood-fired oven. Running off of wood pellets you can get from your local store, the Uuni heats up in just 10 minutes and reaches a temperature of 840-degrees which allows you to cook things really fast. This includes pizzas in less than 2-minutes, flatbreads, salmon, vegetables, and steaks. Because Uuni is made from brushed stainless steel it is made to last a life time. As it ages it will weather, but won't rust. It will become more beautiful over time.
We're all looking for that perfect pint of beer. And now you can get it with the NitroBrew ($500). Nirtrobrew is a system that injects nitrogen into your beer while reducing carbonation. It only takes about 1.5 minutes but the results are amazing. Nitrogen bubbles are very small and extremely stable when compared to carbon dioxide, this results in a creamy head of foam, a silky feel on the palate, and a well-rounded flavor.The system contains a small charging station and a beautifully designed kettle. To install just mount the charging station and connect a nitrogen line. The home kit comes with an air compressor, instead of the nitrogen line, to create the nitrogen out of air. Then just fill the kettle with your favorite beer, press the kettle tip into the charging station and in one short step the NitroBrew system reduces the beer's carbonation and energizes it with nitrogen. Swirl the beer in the kettle and serve. That's it.
