They say variety is the spice of life. Well, this product will definitely keep you from getting bored with the same drink every morning. The Tassimo Hot Beverage System ($170; available in October) makes coffee, tea, espresso, hot chocolate, and cappuccino and latte with real milk — all at the touch of a button. Using "T-DISCs" of precisely measured ingredients and barcode technology to optimize the brewing time, temp and amount of water, the system brews a perfect single cup at a time. Smart.
The Aga Six-Four professional series stove (from $5000) has everything you'll need to deliver this year's Thanksgiving dinner on time and in style. It's got a cast-iron body that comes in 15 vitreous enamel colors, and enough burners and ovens for an army — 6 high-power gas burners, a conventional oven, a fully programmable convection oven, a simmering oven, and a ceramic broiler.
