Ming Tsai: Asian-Cooking Superstar

Wok: At home, Ming Tsai likes using a flat-bottomed cast-iron wok from Le Creuset: “The flat bottom means that more of the surface area is on the stove, so the wok heats up properly.” Tsai also preheats the wok in the oven for 15 minutes so that it becomes “screeching hot.” $225;

Espresso Maker: Tsai can’t do without his Le Cube capsule espresso maker from Nespresso. $350;
