Tools of the trade

The latest cookware is straight out of the science lab. Think molecular titanium pans, space-age heating elements or a pot that poaches and scrambles to the precise degree. Now you, too, can look like a pro.

HESTAN NANOBOND

Protected with thousands of nano-layers of titanium, Hestan’s cookware range is four times more durable than stainless steel. The ground-breaking technology uses a high-heat vacuum chamber to vaporise metal alloys and bond them to stainless steel. The resulting pans are extremely light and efficient at conducting heat, and feature flush rivets, flared rims (to prevent drips) and a mirror-like finish.

BUGATTI NOUN

It may look like a glass toaster, but the Noun can cook much more than bread. Vegetables, meat and fish can be lowered between the two adjustable glass heating elements, which reach up to 3000 C. Cooking this way brings out flavour and aroma, while preserving nutritional properties, says Bugatti.

ONE PRECISION POACHER

Time’s up for the egg timer. Sage’s clever device comprises a digital heating base and a 2.5-litre non-stick pot, plus a temperature probe to ensure accuracy to within 10 C. Egg lovers can choose steam, poach, boil or scramble settings, and there’s a sous-vide function for meat and fish.
