I didn't know Le Creuset made woks, but here one is.
This wok combines the genius of the original Chinese design with the beauty and performance of French enameled cast iron. The shallow sloping shape features a matte interior that allows cooked food to cling to the sides while you finish cooking in the hot center. You can fry, saute, boil, steam, or braise in it, then bring it to the table for serving.
The tight-fitting lid forms the perfect seal for gentle cooking and optimum flavor. Use Le Creuset on gas, electric, induction, and ceramic-top ranges and in the oven (the phenolic knobs and handles are oven-safe to 450 degrees F.).

It is black bakeware day at Kitchen Contraptions. I love the black. These porcelain baking pans come in three sizes -- 20 oz, 48 oz, or 70 oz. They are dishwasher safe.

A broiler pan is an essential in our household. The rack holds food above the pan so fat can drip away. This pan has a stick-free porcelain enamel-on-steel to make it easy to get the food off and to clean up.

I'm intrigued by the spikes on the lid for self-basting:
Staub’s signature piece La Cocotte (French oven) is used by chefs around the world for its superior heat distribution and retention, durability and beauty. Tight-fitting lids have spikes inside to ensure continuous self-basting. Doesn’t need to be seasoned.

The benefit of this griddle is that you don't need to use a lot of oil to cook with it. It is nonstick and compact--just 11 inches. Just looking at it makes me want pancakes. . .

Does your kitchen need more diamonds? This casserole dish has a non-stick surface made by combining nano-composite technology with diamond crystals. Huh? Well, whatever. Supposedly it makes an indestructible non-stick cooking surface that won't crack, blister, or peel. This extra deep 8" x 13" size roaster can be used in oven, broiler, or stovetop.

Cooking with a clay pot supposedly allows you to cook without any liquids. You soak the pot in water before cooking and the water is released while the pot is cooking. It can be used in the oven and the microwave.

Ok. This thing looks crazy. It sits on top of your stove or goes in the oven and has two modes--grilling and poultry.
Grilling Mode: The multi-chambered base in conjunction with the grease catching base lid allows the mixing of delicate flavors never before combined. Meats, seafood and vegetables of all varieties can now be prepared well done and never dry out. Smoked foods remain moist.
Poultry Mode:The stainless vented flavor tube reaches all the way up the cavity of the turkey, chicken or duck providing even distribution of the delicate flavors being introduced. The poultry is grilled from the inside out, resulting in grilled flavors on the inside and a reduction in cooking time!
