Our virtual kitchen didn’t get to become so beautiful on it’s own. We will even give you a few tips about how to spruce up your kitchen to make you a better cook and even to make you proud to entertain inside your kitchen!

We even help you to get more done in your kitchen with better tools and appliances. From ranges and ovens to kitchen appliances, we review the best products to make sure they’ll work in your kitchen as well as they work in ours.

What About Our Virtual Kitchen?

The kitchen is the center of our virtual kitchen and we want to make sure that it is or can become the center of yours. We want to share this ideal kitchen with you through all of the content on our site. So browse our content to help you live a new kitchen life.

What Kind Of Recipes Can You Find On New Kitchen Life?

One of our favorite recipes is Alton Brown’s steak recipe. We made this recipe so many times because it’s perfect. It uses your own oven and burners in combination at high heat to cook your favorite cut of steak just like a steakhouse does, but a lot less expensive. It also only takes a few minutes, another reason why it’s one of our favorites.

Another recipe, or fun dinner idea we like quite a lot is Jamie Oliver’s Spaghetti Alla Carbonara. There are so many carbonara recipes and variations, but we think this one is the best, with just the right ratio of pasta to protein. We even make a protein swap from Jamie’s recipe based on our preference, but you may prefer to keep it “as-is”.

How About Entertaining Ideas?

One of our entertaining articles walks through how you might form a dinner group to get more out of your kitchen or to just show it off after you’ve made that expensive renovation (we have a summary article on kitchen renovation too!). It’s at least a fun guide to inspire you with a lot of options to expand your social circle and show everyone how great of a cook you’ve become!

Anything In Kitchen Lifestyle?

There’s even a fun quiz we have here at New Kitchen Life to help you test your “foodie” knowledge. Test yourself against your friends and family to see how you stack up among the truly great chefs. We also have some practical articles you need in your kitchen like what you can use as a substitute for chicken broth if you just ran out, how many tablespoons in 1 4 cup or 1 cup?, how long to keep salmon in your refrigerator and other places, or even how to reheat pizza!

What About Kitchen Appliance Reviews?

We also thoroughly review all of Subzero Wolf’s gas and electric ranges. We have individual reviews of several models, from the smallest 30-inch range to the 60-inch double oven. We also review them all in a comprehensive guide with all of each oven’s features, specifications, and different configurations in our comprehensive Wolf range guide.

You will also find on our site a very comprehensive review of Wolf’s latest and smallest addition to its product line. This review covers Wolf Gourmet countertop oven, a fully functional Wolf oven that reaches the same 550 degree Fahrenheit temperature that full-sized Wolf ovens reach.
