Steam cooking? Baking with steam? I must have it. I must!
"Steam oven for baking. From Sharp, an oven that uses very hot steam to cook and that can also dramatically reduce fat and salt in food. 300-degree Celsius steam is sprayed onto the meat which literally draws out the fat, unlike frying pans where the fat remains to cook the food. Sharp claims that by reducing oxidation the oven also helps conserve vitamin C."

I'm not sure how "useful" in the kitchen this is...but...it's impressive. Most impressive.
"You might have noticed that The Daiquiri Whacker cost much less than any other gas powered blender on the market. The Daiquiri Whacker was engineered from the start to be mass produced. This helps to minimize assembly labor and parts costs. The blender comes to you fully assembled, ready to go"

"When we heard that Girls Stuff had a pink chocolate fondue set on its new arrivals list we were dubious to say the least. Surely it was taking the whole "let's colour it pink and then girls will buy it!!" ethos that little bit too far. But now the pictures are in, we're thinking it looks quite nice. So turns out it we really are that easy to please. Darn it. Available to pre-order now for Â£14.95."

"When I reviewed the Senseo single serve coffeemaker, I mentioned the Black & Decker Infuze. Now I love coffee. I'm not addicted to it, I can live without it, but it's one of my favorite things, much like chocolate is. At some point, I realized that the automatic drip I was using just wasn't cutting it. "There had to be a better way to make coffee," I thought. Turns out there was."

I'm pretty sure I need a voice controlled Blender. Actually - I KNOW I NEED ONE.
"Being a complete disaster in the kitchen, it's a real pleasure to me to read that other girls have thought about "interesting" ways to use their household appliances.
Blendie, is a voice controlled 1950's Osterizer blender which has been altered, by design engineer Kelly Dobson, with custom made hardware and software for sound analysis and motor control."
