Combining the benefits of home gardening with the straightforward instructions the company is famous for, the Ikea Indoor Garden makes growing your own food as simple as putting together a new Lack side table. Called the Krydda/Vaxer, the hydroponic kit includes seeds that you place in absorbent plugs to get them started, crushed pumice stone for replanting once they sprout, a planting tray with a built-in water level sensor to keep you from overwatering, and a solar lamp to keep them growing even if sunlight is scarce.
Whether you're cooking around a campfire or on your stovetop, nothing beats a cast iron skillet. Aimed at improving on the classic, the Field Skillet is machined and polished for a smooth cooking surface, while reducing the weight to that of a Macbook Pro. They've eliminated the unnecessary pour spouts and added an ergonomic handle, making it easier to transport around the kitchen or wield as a weapon. Just like Granny's, the skillet comes fully seasoned, ready to fry up anything, right out of the box.
Fresh roasted coffee is never more than a few steps away with the Zenroast.

Just pour your beans in the Horoku and put the Zenroast over an open flame. In a few minutes, you'll be grinding up your own special roast. Hand-crafted in one of the six ancient kilns of Japan, the minimalist design and leather handle will complement any counter.

There's little question that using with real butter is healthier than some spray from the store. It can also be a hassle. The Biem Butter Sprayer makes it easy. Its intelligent design stores an entire stick of butter in its body, melting only the butter you need at a burn-free 95 degrees and delivering it through a clog-free nozzle using nothing but heat and air. It's also great for buttering toast, veggies, and popcorn, automatically turns itself on and off thanks to an accelerometer, and has a stylish design with a silicone front and brushed stainless back that looks great whether you keep it in the fridge or leave it out on the counter.
