Pretty in Stainless
KitchenAid has taken a leap off the counter and onto the stove with a line of stainless steel cookware. Ergonomically curved handles and tight-fitting, deep-lipped lids distinguish these pots ($65 to $245;888-801-1707).
If running away to a tropical paradise isn't on your calendar this winter, you can still live some of the fantasy by ordering products from the Caribbean Flavor catalog. F&W's resident island expert, Marcia Kiesel, loved Rockfield's pepper sauce from Anguilla and Sunny Caribbee's salt from Salt Island in the British Virgin Islands ($8 for 10 ounces and $7.50 for 6 ounces, respectively; 888-774-2334).
Time will be on your side when you cook with the new marinades from chef Charles Dale, of Renaissance in Aspen. They infuse meat or fish with herb flavors in 60 seconds flat ($5 for 9 ounces; 800-523-3811).
