Iron Chef: PopSci Culinary Gadgets Put the "Chen" Back In "Kitchen"

Evaporator_PopSci_Kitchen.jpgEver wonder how crazy stuff gets whipped up in pro kitchens? Take for instance the Heidolph VV Micro Evaporator, that $3,000 kitchen distiller above. Recognizable food stuffs go in one end, and a powerfully flavored goo comes out the other. (How very... soylent?) Below in the gallery, there are four more unbelievable food processors, and sh'loads more at PopSci's kitchen gadget round-up. If you want to know what kind of mind it takes to dream up and use all of this stuff, read the accompanying feature about kitchen crazyman Dave Arnold. [ PopSci]
