 As palates grow ever more refined, so do the gadgets home chefs reach for to fulfill their foodie fantasies. Small appliances like the juicer—which can sense the difference between the flesh of a blood orange and its peel—make us wonder if they are smarter than we are.
Technology has enabled us to shrink commercial ovens to the size of a microwave oven so we can turn out personal pizzas and flatbreads at a backyard barbecue. And we can buy microwaves in a rainbow of colors to match the décor of our indoor and outdoor kitchens, home offices and man caves.
While we salute the new, we also renew our appreciation for the classics, like a trusty Mr. Coffee and the pans that have been used in French kitchens since the 19th century. For those who appreciate both new and old, flash and finesse, here are the gourmet tools to have on hand.
