Editor Sarah Rich: "I'm an enthusiastic collector of kitchen tools and cookbooks from decades past. Whether it's a brightly colored enamel corkscrew or a recipe compilation from Gold Rush-era California, I will always find a place for vintage cookery in my kitchen. The holidays tend to be the primary time when I turn my attention from foraging for cast-off treasures to checking out what's new on the market. Here are a few picks I wouldn't mind giving (or receiving) this year."
Designed by Michael Graves for Alessi in 1985, this water kettle is Alessi's best-selling item.
This updated kitchen classic enhances the cooking process by evenly distributing heat and locking in the optimal amount of moisture. With ergonomic handles and an advanced interior enamel that resists chipping and cleans easily, Le Creuset’s French ovens blend the best of the past with the latest innovations in comfort and functionality.
