Having that one special bottle of wine on hand can make all the difference between scoring for the night and sleeping alone. Enhance your chances of the former with the Angelshare Single-Bottle Cellar ($397). This sexy device houses some internal technologies such as temperature and humidity controls to keep your vino at just the right conditions for that special moment.
Most of the cooking gear we've covered here on Uncrate is made from stainless steel, but no stainless pan can stand up to slow cooking like a Le Creuset French Oven ($115-$350). Made from enameled cast iron, the ovens distribute heat more evenly than most regular pans, and tight fitting lids ensure the moisture and flavor stay inside. When your meal (they're great for cooking risotto) is ready, the same oven helps retain heat for serving. A great addition to any kitchen.
If you're a seafood lover (or are a weird cephalopod fan) then perhaps this is the whisk for you. The calamari-inspired Squid Whisk ($20) was designed by Laurent Mouveau in France, and features a great colored handle with a unique curled wire design at the bottom as opposed to the normal "loop" design.
