Molcajete Mortar and Pestle

Molcajete Mortar and Pestle

A versatile and ancient tool, the Molcajete Mortar and Pestle from Williams-Sonoma ($49) is made from volcanic rock, making each piece unique. It’s a great tool for making guacamole, crushing spices, and can also be used as a serving bowl — plus it’s a great conversation piece for your kitchen, lending a great deal of authenticity to the guacamole you normally order from the local mexican place.

  • Whirlpool In.Kitchen

    We don't normally feature products that you can't immediately buy, but Whirlpool's new all-in-one concept kitchens look to be so innovative that we just had to share. The company's industrial design team studied all aspects of how people used kitchens and then rethought the 1960s era built-in kitchens to create four ultra-modern prefab prototypes. The Transformer-like In.Kitchens are mostly white and silver (hey, you can't go wrong with the iPod look) and offer features such as integrated, futuristic appliances, drop-down counters, and other hide-away goodies. And the future is nearly here. Whirlpool said the concepts are "not distant product hopes: they are glimpses of possible domestic experiences that could be achieved in the near future through well orchestrated partnerships."

  • SENSEO Coffee Maker

    For those of us in living in a household of one or two people, making an entire pot of coffee can be a real waste. The SENSEO Coffee Maker ($75) alleviates this problem by making perfectly brewed coffee one cup at a time. Using the same amount of water and a pod each time, the system delivers consistent cups with a frothy layer again and again. While it’s not Starbucks, it does use coffee pods Douwe Egberts, one of Europe’s premiere coffee brands — plus, you won’t be getting tempted by mega-calorie White Chocolate Mochas or Frappucinos.
