4. Avail of the new induction cooker from Cornell. Cornell has just launched a brand new infrared ceramic cooker, CCC-E2000, to its line of cooking appliances. Unlike induction hobs that only work with stainless steel cookware, this ceramic cooker is compatible with all types of cookware. With its flat top and smooth surface, grease or food residue can be easily wiped away from the ceramic cooker. You can enjoy cooking a wide range of dishes such as claypot rice or stews in ceramic pots. The CCC-E2000 is available at Courts, Mustafa, and Gain City. It goes at a promotional price of $92 (U.P.: $128).

5. Want to know what Julia Child’s kitchen looked like? Now’s your chance to get a glimpse of the American cook’s beloved French kitchen—her Provencal home is now up for grabs for the first time in the market. "She was a very organized person," Child’s prodigy, Kathie Alex, who rented the property for some time, told The New York Times. "Everything is where your hand is. Everything is so easy to get to." Alex assures that while the rest of the house has been updated, the kitchen is just at Child left it.
