Cuisinart Supreme Ice Cream Maker

Cuisinart Supreme Ice Cream Maker

Another staple of summer is homemade ice cream, and there's no better way to make it than with the commercial-quality Cuisinart Supreme Ice Cream Maker ($300). This brushed stainless steel box features a built-in compressor-freezer, removing the requirement for pre-chilled or pre-frozen bowls. Other features include a fully-automatic 60-minute timer, 1 1/2 quart capacity, and an included book of simple recipes to help you get started.

  • Alessi Pasta Pot

    It's rare that we cover a piece of cookware that introduces (or in this case, re-introduces) a different method of cooking. The Alessi Pasta Pot by Alain Ducasse and Patrick Jouin ($240) uses an ancient cooking method, developed by olive pickers, that allows the starches to be totally absorbed with the pasta instead of being discarded with the cooking water, and the same is true for the sauce. The result? New, interesting flavors delivered to your table in the pot, which rests on the included trivet.

  • Steak Button Thermometers

    While most chefs have a pretty good idea of how long to cook their steaks, things can get tricky when you've got one person who digs seared rare while someone else wants thier meat burnt like a poorly-trained fire-breather. These Steak Button Thermometers ($15/4) are reusable, 1" diameter guages that tell whether your meat is rare, medium, or well done. Trust us, it's well worth it to keep from hearing "I can't eat this... it needs to go back on the grill." [Thanks, Mars]
