Unless you’ve properly trained your dog, you’re probably still getting up and walking to the kitchen to fetch your own beer or Hard Claw. But this is 2020. There’s no reason to live like a one-fridge peasant without an extra beverage fridge in each of your favorite rooms. It’s time to upgrade your home or apartment with a legit beverage cooler. Thankfully, NewAir has the solution with wide selection of beverage fridges.

NewAir’s 24-inch 177 Can Beverage Fridge is a mini beverage fridge that has all the company’s popular key features built-in. The 24-inch (versus the 15-inch) edition is bigger and better in every way, now offering a 177-can capacity and a host of other features. By the numbers, that’s enough space for almost 30 six-packs. With removable black chrome shelving, the interior is flexible enough to allow for taller cans and bottles, too. So, it’s configurable not just for beer and soda, but wine bottles, kombucha, and whatever else quenches your thirst. Plus, strong internal insulation and an easy-touch digital display allow you to set and maintain the precise temperature for your collection. A built-in alarm even alerts you if you’ve left the door open too long.

Despite its sizable capacity, the 24-inch beverage fridge can be used as either a freestanding or under-the-counter beverage fridge to maximize your space. It’s designed to blend seamlessly into your kitchen cabinetry or to work as a standalone unit in any other room where you need easy access to chilled beverages. The exterior features a seamless stainless steel door with a flush-mounted hinge and pro-style handle for a look that fits any décor. It’s sleek, modern, and contemporary with an elevated aesthetic. NewAir also ups the ante with built-in multicolor LED lights to show off your craft beer collection to your guests.

A complete guide: How to clean your oven racks
Most of what you need for this task is in your home already
Inside of a modern empty oven

Let's be real. When it comes to household chores and responsibilities, cleaning oven racks falls pretty low on the fun-to-do list. It's messy, it's greasy, and it tests the line of needing to be a circus contortionist in order to reach all those dark, dingy corners.

But it's a task that simply must be done. A dirty oven can actually affect the taste of your food, and if the situation is dire (no judgment here), even lead to food poisoning in certain cases. So, as grimy and gruesome as the chore can be, it's an important one to conquer. Just think of how rewarding a squeaky-clean oven will be and about all the delicious casseroles waiting to be prepared and enjoyed, a testament to your efforts.

Put down the IPA and meet the actual coolest drink in town — bourbon
Bourbon in a glass

Hello, class, and welcome to Bourbon 101. Don't worry; we're not like those other schools where you aren't allowed to drink during class. We're cool. Now, get your notebooks and a glass of whiskey ready because it's time to dive into the history of this American spirit.

It would be hard to find something more American than bourbon, except for maybe a bald eagle draped in an American flag with a baseball and an apple pie clutched in its talons. In any case, the history of bourbon follows the highs and lows of our country, as a whole, with good times, great times, and really bad times. It was built with ingenuity in a time of great hardship and flourished despite the best efforts of outside forces.
What exactly is bourbon?

12 delectable lobster recipes that aren’t just dipped in butter
Get more serious with your lobster, and whip up one or more of these lobster recipes
Lobster roll

Lobster, or if you're from New England — Lobstah — is among the most coveted seafood around. Because of this, we have to pay the market price for these overgrown crawfish, which means the cost goes up and down based on supply and demand. The most recent numbers had lobster at almost $18 per pound, and when you think about all the inedible shell, it comes out to a lot more. That's why canned, pre-cooked lobster is always more expensive than the whole lobster itself.

But let's forget about the price. Sometimes, we have to indulge. Some of the most popular lobster recipes are the ever-popular New England lobster roll or simply ripping the cooked meat straight from the tail and drenching it with butter. Although lobster is excellent on its own, its dense flesh and unmistakable flavor lend themselves to a wide array of dishes. So, we reached out to renowned chefs and food industry pros to deliver some of the most delicious lobster recipes you can wow your guests with at your next dinner party.
