The Kitchen Sink is a super-lightweight camping bowl that's just made to make any expedition a doddle instead of trouble. We think any kitchen sink that's portable is impressive and this one can hold up to 10 litres of liquid.
Nice and compact
The Kitchen Sink folds down after use into its tiny nylon pouch, it only weighs the same as a couple of bags of potato chips, or maybe an African tree shrew. When full, you'll hardly notice the effort it takes to carry your sink full of water from stream to camp kitchen, thanks to a pair of sturdy webbing handles that make portage a breeze.

We love a good grill for those Sunday morning brunches, and this rectangular grill pan made of even-heating enameled cast iron from Le Creuset is pretty amazing. It features diagonal ridges that impart tasty grill marks on food and allow for lower-fat cooking. The cast-iron loop side handles facilitate convenient transport, and it's oven- and broiler-safe.

This set of 3 Good Grips mixing bowls for folding, tossing, beating, and whisking will also make the perfect set for making pancake batter. Why are we obsessed with pancake batter? Well this morning didn't go that well due to not having the right size and a grip edge that has a nonskid rounded bottom. So our pancake batter went right on the floor, and we were covered in it instead of getting to make pancakes. Bummer. These are safe in the dishwasher, and come in 1-1/2 quarts, 3 quarts, and 5 quarts. We can't wait to get these to make our mornings a little less messy.

This six-quart sauce pot constructed of mirror-polished 18/10 stainless-steel exterior is perfect for making some chicken soup. Last night we cooked up 2 - 5lb chickens in hopes of well enjoying roast chicken with plenty of left overs for a large pot of chicken soup. We have this same 6 quart sauce pot, and it's a great size to simmer the chicken down and also use for the stew.
- Aluminum inner core for fast, even heating
- Stainless-steel handles that remain cool on the stovetop
- Mirror-polished 18/10 stainless-steel lids with dripless rims
- Oven-safe to 550 degrees F; limited lifetime warranty

This is a new one for the Pots and Pans section here at Kitchen Contraptions. These rather oversized silicone bowls can be used for mixing, baking, and other kitchen uses. You can safely wrap and roast a fish in these babies, and they wash up easily. Killer idea.

Bialetti sent us this amazing set of pots and pans over a month ago, and we have to say - wow. This 3-piece saute pan set includes: - 8" (20cm) Saute Pan - 9.5" (24cm) Saute Pan - 11" (28cm) Saute Pan. The three pans clean up really well, and feature coatings free of PFOA, free of PTFE and free of Cadmium.
The interior features a new "nano-ceramic" coating which is a water-based coating made of titanium and suspended silicate micro-particles (the main component of glass). This material resists scratches, abrasions and offers a smooth, compact and uniform surface that makes it easier to clean.
The white color provides a unique and extraordinary cooking experience, and they aren't kidding. You can really see what you're cooking and the sauce, oil, or other coverage when you are heating up the pan or deglazing. The base provides excellent thermal conductivity and guarantees optimum heat distribution resulting in less energy required to maintain desired cooking temperature. The also scratch resistant hi-temp silicone exterior makes this cookware easy to clean.
We think for the $79.99 these pans cost, we would have paid double for their ease of use and the experience of the cookware surface.

We love a little Aebleskiver action as the winter and fall weather get a bit colder. This pan makes 7 pancakes measuring 6.5 inches/16.5cm diameter and 2 inches/5cm deep. If you're looking for a great Aebleskiver recipe we think we found one. Oh, and the pan is made of cast iron so don't soak it after making a yummy apple filled Aebleskiver.

Is it time to start thinking about Thanksgiving? The goal on Thanksgiving is always to have a moist turkey. This oven humidifier is designed to add moisture to your turkey. You fill the pan with the liquid of your choice -- water, beer, wine, juices, or any other liquid -- and place your roasting pan on top to cook. The vents release steam into the oven and moisture into your food.
