Beauty and function come together in the Sorapot. This modern, architectural teapot uses an arch of stainless steel to house a Pyrex tube, letting you watch as the tea leaves unfurl, changing hot water into tasty tea. Newly refreshed, the updated version features a re-engineered spout, and open brew chamber, and an investment cast, hand-finished handle, as well as the same stunning looks as the original.
There are plenty of pots and pans out there that promise faster cook times and more even heating — but none of them feature technology designed by an actual rocket scientist. Surrounded by unique fins that effectively channel heat upwards from your cook top, these Flare Pans heat up quicker while cooking your food faster and more evenly. Able to cook as much as 44% faster than standard cookware, these pots and pans are made from highly-conductive cast aluminum. Choose from a saucepan, a lidded stockpot, and frying pans in two sizes, or buy them in a set and experience the benefits of speedier, more uniform cooking.
It's tough to beat a cast iron skillet in terms of culinary versatility — you can use the same piece of cookware for anything from searing a steak to frying potatoes, and just about anything in between — and they're guaranteed to last for generations to come, while getting better with each use. Borough Furnace Skillets are each individually cast from nothing but recycled iron (they take as much as eight weeks to deliver one lovingly-crafted skillet), so you don't have to worry about their quality. Each one comes pre-seasoned, and sports a long handle that stays cool to the touch, so all you have to think about is the next meal you're going to cook.
Add a touch of artistic class to your kitchen with the Black Diamond Knife Block. Designed by Christian Bird, this reimagined block features room for up to 11 knives in cleverly-designed, angled slats that allow for easy extraction. The skeletal, matte black body lets you see the blades inside, making it easy to tell whether you're grabbing a paring knife, chef's knife, or serrated blade, and while you don't have to own the Ceramic Onyx knives to make good use of it, it certainly looks best if you do.
