We're always wondering just how hot pot handles are when making pasta, and we often forget to use a pot holder. These silicone pot holder pot grips slip over the handles with grippy teeth within to help you avoid burned fingers and hands. It can be yours for $10 here.

We have waves of giant OREO goodness coming from just a glance at these crazy cookie cake pans.. Fill the center with whipped cream or even ice cream and you can imagine where your sweet tooth will take you. You can buy it here for $20, but we think it's worth double that amount.

This 9-1/2-quart stainless-steel juicer steamer with aluminum-clad base will help you get to healthier cooking faster, and create delicious fresh fruit juice with non of that corn syrup you get in the store. The fruit goes in the top, and the steam water is created in the bottom. As the juice comes out it gets caught in the middle pan, and then you can use the included nozzle hose to get a fresh cup of juice.

We just got this dutch oven that was included as part of a larger set of stainless steel pots and pans we got from All Clad. This set includes an All-Clad Cast Aluminum 5-1/2-quart Dutch oven with stainless steel lid and two All-Clad red cotton oven mitts. We made a pretty groovy soup last night, and the dutch oven did the trick - heating evenly and was easy to clean up. The dutch oven is also ideal for making delicious braised meats in the oven while also being versatile enough to simmer soups and stews on the stovetop like we did last night. We're anxious to try a slow cooked chicken in it this weekend - should be delicous.

It's funny because we're not sure when the electric skillet left our kitchen, but we used to use one when we had an apartment all the time. We really like this powerful, environmentally friendly electric skillet because it lets you sear, fry, griddle, simmer or braise using a ceramic-based nonstick surface that’s petroleum-free and contains no PTFE or PFOA. The big thing about an electric skillet is you can typically make an entire meal right in it, and add ingredients as you cook to make a sizable meal for 3-4 people easily.
- 14"-round cooking surface provides more than 150 sq. in. of space.
- Heat disperses evenly across the entire surface for consistent browning.
- Nonstick surfaces are easy to clean.
- Six temperature settings: warm, 250°F, 300°F, 350°F, 400°F and 450°F.
- An indicator light turns off when the set temperature is reached.
- The tempered-glass lid makes it easy to monitor cooking progress.
- Polished-stainless-steel finish.

We've been using this 12-Inch stainless steel fry pan with stainless steel lid from All Clad over the past week and love it. It features a 3-Ply bonded construction with aluminum core that distributes heat evenly, and they aren't kidding. We've made eggs to fried catfish, and clean up is easy as long as you leave a little hot water in the pan. Our favorite part is how the 18/10 stainless steel interior will not react with food.

This 10.6-inch copper bowl is made for beating egg whites. Yep - just egg whites. Why? Copper material interacts with egg proteins to produce fluffy, high-rise whites if you use well - a copper egg bowl. It features a brass side ring that lets the chef in your hold or hang bowl.

We're warming up to the idea of replacing all of our pans with enameled cast iron like this Le Creuset skillet. We really want to get rid of any pans with non-stick coating, and these pans made of enameled cast iron excell in heat distribution, retention and have a satin coated finish without non-stick stuff. They are also compatible with gas, electric, induction, and ceramic top ranges for all types of cooking.
