Emily Crow at Bitesize Bio puts a spin on a recent post about kitchenware you can use in the lab by creating her list of labware she'd like to use in her home — stir plates and stir bars are at the top of the list. "Can you imagine making risotto on a stir plate? Just start up the spin function, and you won’t have to stand over a hot pot for 30 minutes just to make a tasty dinner," she writes. To store the leftover risotto? Parafilm, of course, because it "works so much better than saran wrap," Crow says. And what kitchen is complete without a desktop autoclave to sterilize glasses and utensils? In a comment to this post, reader Yannick v.G. chooses "nice and clean proteases to soften meat."
