4. Shortlisted: Easy Stir

Hands-free cooking at its most innovative, the Easystir uses magnets that react to an induction stove to calculate stirring speed so you can concentrate on other matters in the kitchen. With not a battery or plug in sight, you can also give it a rinse in a dishwasher, and is the perfect solution to help focus your time entertaining the dinner guests.
