With limited time and countertop space, it’s hard to figure out how to prioritize kitchen appliances. What’s more valuable to you: Reheating, slow-cooking, or dehydrating?

On October 21, the cook-tech company June looks to provide a universal solution with its third-generation June Oven. The 12-in-1 smart appliance claims to be able to air fry, slow cook, grill, dehydrate, broil, bake, proof, roast, toast, warm, and reheat meals with computer precision.

This tech-forward appliance is a Smart convection oven with a streamlined touchscreen interface outside and a high-performance camera inside. The Smart Oven can identify hundreds of foods to start an automatic-cook program. June updated this third generation to make the cooking experience easier and more seamless.

“This new world has created a lifestyle change for many, bringing people back into the kitchen to cook or learn to cook for themselves and loved ones,” co-founder and CEO Matt Van Horn said in a press release. “June is at the forefront of this culinary shift because we take the guesswork out of cooking.”

Each of six heating elements can now be user-controlled, opening up endless cooking possibilities. This includes a rotisserie roaster, a meat/veggie griller, and a stone-fired pizza add-on element. There’s also zone cooking, which enables the in-oven camera to detect where food is placed, focusing heating elements only in those areas to ensure a faster, more energy-efficient cooking prep.

The new oven looks sharp as well, arriving in high-quality aluminum with added guard rails on the top heating elements, new convection fan motors to reduce vibration and sound, and a new chip to improve connectivity. The June Oven is synced to over 400 Smart recipes created by professional chefs. Use the June app (Apple Store or Google Play) to access these recipes as well as to remotely preheat and adjust cook time and temp from anywhere. You can even keep an eye on what’s cooking with live video and get Smart alerts for mealtimes.

The third-generation June Oven will launch with three bundles ranging from $599 to $999, depending on membership options and add-on accessories like the pizza and grill kit. The June Oven opens for presale on Thursday, Oct. 21.

There are also a lot of great outfits, brewing award-winning beers. There are also a few that stand above the rest both in terms of quality and atmosphere. These are the bucket list breweries that every beer fan should visit at least once.

The best part? These gems can be found all over the country. There are Chicago breweries, Asheville breweries, and outstanding, can’t-miss breweries from Petaluma to St. Pete. We’re talking names like Tree House Brewery, Russian River Brewing, Brewery Ommegang, and Portland, Maine’s stalwart Allagash Brewing to name a few.

Apple cider donuts with sugar

This time of year, the sweet treats are out to play, and we couldn't be more thrilled. Pair all the deliciously spicy fall flavors with chilly days that make you want to snuggle up with something cozy and sugary, and we're happy campers. Perhaps slightly chubbier ones, but that's what the cable-knit sweaters are for. If you've never made (or even tried!) piping hot, cinnamon-sugary, crisp and spicy, fresh apple cider donuts, what are you even doing with your life? This chilly weather treat is a must for autumn days, and it's about time you learn to make these spicy little love cakes.

Why are apple cider donuts so good?
We all love our local corner donut shops for a quick sugar fix and a cheap cup of coffee. Nothing says "it's going to be a good Saturday morning" more than one of those cheerful pink boxes. Now imagine that instead of your usual maple bar or classic glazed, the donut in your hand is fresh and warm, infused with crisp, autumnal apple cider and fall spices, warm cinnamon and sugar crystals dusting your fingertips. And instead of a fluorescently lit shop in a strip mall with chipped laminate flooring, you're enjoying that donut at a stunningly fragrant, gorgeously picturesque apple orchard, owned and run by kind and jovial local farmers.
