For our Oprah fans, she picked this Kyocera ceramic knife set as one of her “Favorite Things” for 2010. The Kyocera ceramic knives she selected are a practical and reasonably priced kitchen essential. One thing that’s great about these ceramic knifes is that they rarely need to be sharpened. And, when it finally needs to be sharpened after many many many uses, if you send your knife off to Kyocera, they’ll sharpen them for FREE!
Called an anti-fatigue mat, the Wellness Mat lives up to its name.
A friend who does lots of catering says that her feet and back used to kill her after 4 or 5 hours of standing. And she’s only 30! Now, with a Wellness mat, she’s happy (and her husband is very happy because she complains less) I was also amazed to learn that this made in the USA kitchen product actually helps with posture. A variety of medical professionals recommend the Wellness Mat to help minimize the stress we put on our bodies when standing for long periods of time.
The brand new Zwilling JA Henckels Twin Profection knives is more than just another line of kitchen cutlery. They are certainly great looking thanks to renowned Italian architect and designer Matteo Thun who designed Profection cutlery. My first impression of these knives had me referring to them as the “Orient Express” of knife lines — a matter of east meeting west in cutlery. Upon closer inspection I have to admit there is more to the story. This is the story of form meeting function in a warm embrace!

Denmark has blessed the world with a line of non-stick cookware that will stand the test of time! While I have owned very expensive non-stick cookware in the past, none has compared to ScanPan. What makes this brand of non-stick cookware truly remarkable?
Of all the many brands on MetroKitchen, I am certain that Tim Allen of “Home Improvement” fame would be all over Vitamix blenders and food processors. His comic quest for more horse power would lead him on a crash course for an appliance like Vita-Mix. These machines have 2 plus peak horsepower and the blades spin at 240 miles per hour at the highest setting. These products are built in the USA, in Cleveland, Ohio and are built to last! There are two models to chose from, the Turbo Blend 4500 and the CIA Pro Series which is comparable to the Vita-Mix 5200 series.

Lamborghini, Maserati, Miyabi. While most will agree that they roll off the tongue easily, most would then sing the Sesame Street tune, “one of these things is not like the others, one of these things does not belong”. Well, two are Italian sports cars and recently introduced Henckels Miyabi is a line of Japanese knives. I will agree that they have some striking differences but they all are items that stand for extreme performance! Miyabi is a line of cutlery that is second to none when it comes to performance. These are the sharpest knives I’ve ever encountered and I’d venture to say you’ll feel the same way. The Miyabi 7000 series comes in 3 distinct categories: The 7000D, the 7000 Pro and the 7000MC. These knives are made in Japan under the supervision of German knife maker, Zwilling J.A. Henckels.

The exterior is brushed stainless steel, while the interior features ceramic titanium nonstick surface.
The Clef du Vin wine aging tool really does age wine! I was a bit skeptical (well, actually, VERY skeptical) when I saw it demonstrated at a show. It’s supposed to “age” a glass of wine by one year for every second you leave the key in the wine. I thought, “Yeah, right, like that’s going to happen”. But, stunningly, in 5 seconds the young red wine tasted like it had 5 more years of age on it!
Emile Henry Flame Top cookware is my favorite new line of cookware. I’ve always been a fan of cast iron cookware, but my new ceramic dutch oven has opened up a whole new world for me in my kitchen. My beautiful, yet highly functional blue Flame Top dutch oven is the most versatile, green-friendly cooking vessel in my pantry.
