Prehistoric kitchens were rarely well-equipped, with slow-cookers that could hold the bounty of the day’s mammoth hunt taking up most of the counter space. Prepare for more modernized dishes with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of cooking supplies at The Stock Pot.
The Stock Pot takes the mystery out of the cooking process with an array of alchemical kitchen and cooking implements. Kindle a stove’s affections with advanced cookware, such as the dent-defiant Helen Chen 14-inch carbon-steel wok ($37.28) or a measure-friendly Escali digital kitchen scale ($34.31). A Progressive angled measuring cup decants ingredients with pinpoint precision, allowing chefs to easily gauge liquid levels thanks to top-down views and a wormhole to the fourth dimension ($7.14). Cutlery from Forschner's professional blademakers ($255.37) adds a functional gleam to countertops, or remains impressively wall-bound on an 18-inch magnetic knife bar ($18.43). Fox Run's four linked mini loaf pans ensure surplus bread when feeding hungry duos or the mouths of Cerberus ($16.07), and gourmet ingredients impart an edge to culinary adventurers of any experience level.
