We're more of a stovetop popcorn kind of crew, but we think we might need this for less mess and more popping. Claiming to be the Top of Pops - this popcorn maker with motorized stirring mechanism for better popping has special vents that let moisture escape to keep popcorn crisp. We like the removable nonstick cooking plate with cool-touch handles, and the entire setup is dishwasher-safe minus the bottom.

I thought I had heard of every method of cooking, but this is something I hadn't heard about. This appliance uses special parchment paper pouches to hold in juices and keep food moist. You place the food in the parchment pouch and then place it in the grill. For most items it takes around 3 to 8 minutes to cook. The appliance comes with 48 parchment pouches and cooking tongs.

Like the title says - we're currently obsessed with french fries fried in duck fat. This fryer below should be able to take care of fries, and a leg or two of duck for the added heart stopping confit. If you have never had potato chips or french fries made with duck fat or lard - you're simply missing out.

As we set the fire alarm off the other night while grilling with our grill pan, we think we might need a grill with a lid. This George Foreman grill has five cooking plates, so you can use it as a deep-dish pizza oven, a quesadilla press, an omelet maker, a pancake griddle, or a grill. In addition, you can adjust the cooking surface to be angled, in order to channel the fat away from the food. The grill also provides adjustable temperature control and a 1-1/2-inch floating hinge to accommodate thicker items.
