This Lékué Pasta Cooker proves that design ingenuity can accomplish miracles – like turning the microwave into more than a cooking appliance of last resort. Fill it with water, and pasta cooks fast without sticking. The vented lid doubles as a colander. Perfect for quick cooking at, say, the office, a hotel suite with a kitchenette, or anywhere else that has the ubiquitous microwave but no stove. [$35; lekueusa.com]
