Up 'til now, wood-fired pizza ovens have been the domain of restaurants and the rich. The Uuni Pizza Oven (£160; roughly $250) is looking to change all of that. Made from stainless steel, it's compact, weighs just 5kg, and - most importantly - cooks a fantastic pizza, thanks to an integrated furnace that gets up to 800° F, or hot enough to cook a pie in just 3 minutes.
Feel like your kitchen isn't looking enough like a Mr. Wizard set? The Hario Bonmac Siphon Coffee Pot ($110) should be able to fix that. To use it, you fill up the lower bulb with water, and place your coffee grounds in the upper container. Place the alcohol lamp burner under the lower bulb to boil the water, which becomes steam, rises to the top, mixes with the grounds, and finally ends up back down in the lower bulb as one of the best cups of coffee you've ever had. Safety goggles not included.
Add a bit of whimsy to your morning coffee routine with one of these Creature Cups ($15-$20). Available in 11 or 15 oz. sizes, these curious cups are dishwasher safe and feature a different creature at the bottom, which only emerges fully once you're nearing the end of your drink. Choose from an octopus, pelican, crocodile, sea otter, shark, spider, or skull, or pony up for a set of two ($25-$35).
Do you like tea? Do you really like tea? Then you should consider picking up the WMF SmarTea Teapot ($135). This sleek set features a 1.5 quart glass teapot, a removable stainless steel infuser good for loose leaf, bagged, or flowering teas, and a stainless steel lid. The real highlight, however, is the stainless steel stand that has a tealight candle holder to keep your tea warm and ready to drink for hours.
The fingerprint recognition system on the Philips Saeco Xelsis Fingerprint ID Espresso Machine ($3,200) isn't meant to keep anything more secure — unless you consider your personal drink preferences a well-guarded secret. Able to store up to 6 unique profiles, the Xelsis also features Saeco Brewing System technology that lets you dial in just the right strength and consistency, an integrated, automatic milk carafe for perfectly frothed milk, an adjustable, built-in ceramic grinder, protective coffee bean hopper, and removable 54-ounce water tank. All of which helps you save a grand per person per year over hitting up the local coffee shop.
