It's a concept for the James Dyson Award for now, but we'd like to see the O'Boil! come out as a real product. With an integrated timer in the small lid, you put the food in the colander inside a pot and then boil or steam the food. You can take the timer out to stir and taste, and then when ready to serve the steam stays off your hands by pinching the clasp at the top.

Once you get copper pots you won't go back to regular pots. This set includes a 1.8-quart saucepan with lid, 3-quart sauté pan with lid, and 10.2-inch fry pan. The extra-thick 2.5 mm copper exteriors and stainless interiors heat rapidly and evenly. Plus the tight-fitting copper and stainless lids seal in flavors, moisture, and nutrients. There's even durable cast-iron handles with stainless rivets, and hand washing is recommended.
The real thing about copper pots along with how amazing they look is how even the heat is. We've never had a burnt sauce or gravy, and that's because in a copper pot the heat is so even.

If you want to let your famous spaghetti sauce simmer and not burn then you're going to need a Simmer Mat. Simmer mats allow the heat to be transferred evenly to the base of the pot, and thus you won't get any hot spots to burn your precious sauce. This one is made of enameled zero quality carbon steel to make it last.

We've never seen an indoor/outdoor smoker that can be used on the stovetop or grill, but now we have and we're very interested. The smoker set includes a nonstick smoking rack, water/drip pan, adjustable smoke vent, temperature control thermometer, instructions, recipes, and wood chips. When using the smoker you simply add a pinch of wood chips, a cup of liquid and start smoking. Sounds easy to us, and we can see how a little smoke as long as your kitchen stove has a good vent would work, but we think this could work best on the grill.

This 12-cup whistling kettle made of thermal-shock-resistant borosilicate glass features a removable lid, heat-resistant phenolic handle, and a drip-free spout. What we really like is how it can be used on gas or electric stovetops, and best of all it's dishwasher-safe. If you've never had a clear glass kettle the thing about it that makes it fun is seeing the water boil. We love knowing before the whistle that the water is about ready to go.

There's just something so classic about this tea kettle from Le Creuset. This kettle just has the look and gets the job done by conducting heat efficiently and boiling water quickly to waste less energy. The kettle is coated with durable porcelain enamel and will not corrode, and the handle locks into position for easy pouring. And yes - it has a whistle and it's quite loud when the water reaches a rolling boil. And if you have one of those fancy induction cooking surfaces - it works on them as well as regular stoves.
