Gizmodo has been running a set of features on different types of cooking methods, and one that caught our eye is the induction article. We've long been fascinated with this cooking method because instead of using a flame like gas, or radiant heat like standard electric burners, induction burners use a magnetic field. Yep - that's right MAGNETS. Current passing through conductive material generates heat instead of flame or electricity heating up a burner. Check it out - it's an amazing read.

I would really like to try grilling pizza. This pizza stone can be used on the grill or in the oven. It has a stainless steel base, so it can go on open flames. But the stone also separates from the base, so you can use the stone in the oven. It also has a built-in thermometer.

We've just discovered Lodge Logic cooking stuff, and like their other cast iron products this Dutch Oven comes pre-seasoned. The 5-quart Dutch oven with cast-iron lid ideal for slow-cooking foods, and the rugged cast-iron construction heats slowly and evenly. What do they pre-seaon with? The dutch oven is pre-seasoned with vegetable oil formula and ready for immediate use.

Double boilers are useful for melting chocolate or making candy. This double boiler is silicone, so it is flexible and non-stick as well heat resistant up to 500 degrees and dishwasher, freezer, and microwave safe. It is also collapsible, so it saves space.

I love the color of this cassoulet pot. It is made from clay and can be used on either gas or electric stoves and in the oven up to 500°F. It has a self-basting lid with a dimpled surface to promote even, continuous distribution of juices.

This cold weather has me thinking about soup. This pot is made from enamel with a carbon steel core and can withstand extreme heat changes, so it can go from the freezer to the oven. The enamel is chemical free and naturally stick-resistant.

The Char-Broil Big Easy oil-less infrared turkey fryer represents the next step forward in utilizing infared style cooking, and not burning your house down with a Turkey Fryer filled with boiling oil. You can cook up to a 16lb turkey, or other large cuts of meat (chickens, pork tenderloings, or beef roasts). With no hot cooking oil to purchase, splatter, or dispose of, the Char-Broil Big Easy is the delcious, safe and easy alternative to oil-fried turkey.
Cooking is done inside a double-wall cylindrical cooking chamber, powered by a fullly enclosed propane burner. Heck, you can even use your favorite marinades, and they can be injected before you cook the bird or during the process. After using a turkey fryer at my parents house in Maine, we think this is the way to go. It just never feels right - it just feels dangerous, but you also can't make deep fried potato chips in this baby either.

Thanksgiving is but weeks away, and we think it's time you start thinking about the roasting pan you'll be using this year to cook your bird. The Turkey Cannon literally and physically stuffs an entire can of beer up into the cavity of your turkey, ensuring a moist and tasty bird for Thanksgiving. The beer boils, infusing your turkey with marinated flavor while decreasing cooking time. You can also use other ingredients besides beer, and the auto-basting container will take care of the rest.

Now with temperature gauge built right inside the pan, and a readout in the handle, knowing what temperature the pan is right at your hand.
