Dubbed the S5, the Sonos Play 5 All-In-One Wireless Music Player has 5 integrated speakers powered by 5 digital amps for room-filling sound. We think given the control you can do with your iPod or iPhone this makes for a great kitchen radio. You can enjoy unlimited music, wirelessly play iTunes, free Internet radio, Pandora, Napster and more. They've even recently updated the Sonos to use Spotify and others. The simple setup and wireless expandability to play different songs in different rooms (you can sync up multiple Sonos boxes for around the house sound) makes this an amazing product. Sonos requires a high-speed Internet connection and wireless router.

Don't you just want to finish the last part of the game while you make a little dinner, or perhaps watch some re-runs of Lassie? We do and this 7-inch widescreen LCD display with built-in ATSC digital TV tuner for high quality viewing is perfect for doing both. It features under-cabinet mounting for clutter-free kitchen counters, and the flip-down display panel saves counter space. There's even a MP3 Link with stand for portable music playback, and a magnetic remote control for convenient mounting onto fridge. We're not sure if we need yet another cooking timer but there's even one built in.

You can add a touch of lavender to your drinks with this infused sugar set. You add lavender to this dispenser with some granulated sugar and over a few weeks the lavender's subtle, gentle and light flavor will be absorbed, without the strong aroma. Once your sugar has been infused with lavender's delicate flavor you can add it to a host of homemade delights: sorbets, pie fillings, muffins, brownies, cookies, lemonade, hot chocolate, and even cups of tea. Pretty amazing gift idea, and something different for those pure of heart and flavor.

We've not seen the wonder that is the Mr. Coffee BVMC-EL1 Cafe Latte Machine for $99, but we surely are seeing it's wonder now.

It has a 24-ounce capacity to serve more than one drink at a time, and you can save money by making lattes at home instead of leading coffeehouse chains.

That's right the Kindle Fire is finally shipping, and we think Amazon's answer to the iPad is the touch pad for your kitchen. Why? Well the price and the size makes it take less room and less of your money for a kitchen computer. Also the content and amount of access to it stored in the cloud make it desirable when it falls into a batch of cookie batter to lose all of your purchases. We welcome the new Kindle Fire and think this is the touch tablet for the kitchen we've been waiting for.

The Bertazzoni Master Series Pro-Style Gas Range is gorgeous in design, and exceptional in functionality. The range can be lit with a match if you don't have power, and the oven has one safety feature which is very nice, the door never gets hot. The top of the range features a flat surface so moving pots and pans around is never an issue. We love the stainless steel design here because it truly feels and looks flat and inviting yet very clean in the design of the edges.

We love a good poached egg, and this skillet will make 5 at a time. The skillet measures 10 inches/25.5cm diameter and features a stay cool handle. The set includes 5 removable egg poacher cups and a tempered glass vented lid, and the entire skillet is made of stainless steel. If you've never used a skillet egg poacher then you're in for a treat. This makes poaching eggs so simple, and you can also make a bunch for a brunch instead of 1-2 at a time in other poachers.

It's been a week of coffee makers here at Kitchen Contraptions and why not finish it out with one of the best. The coffee maker comes assembled and requires only that the brewhead wand, filter basket and covers be installed. The filter basket, basket cover and water chamber cover are black plastic. The brewhead wand is stainless steel. There are nine holes in the brewhead which distribute water effectively onto the coffee The TV also has two heating coils rather than one to help maintain a high enough water temperature to make an amazing cup of coffee.

The Fretta V60 Ice Coffee Maker is a unique design which combines a 02 size dripper cone similar to the Hario VD-02T with a 600ml glass carafe. The curved ridges on the inside of the cone aid in the control of water flow as it interacts with coffee grounds.
The plastic diffuser allows for quicker cooling and a more balanced flow of coffee over the ice, resulting in less melting. We're not sure why when it's Fall and the temperatures are dropping we've become obsessed with iced coffee makers, but then again maybe we feel we're already prepping for next summer's purchases in the coffee maker arena.
