Best known for its eye-catching, colorful assortment of cooking vessels, LeCreuset is expanding from oven to table.

Made from stoneware, each piece is finished with an enamel glaze that resists chips, scratches and stains and is easy to clean.
Safe for use in the microwave, oven, broiler, freezer and dishwasher, the 16 piece set includes (four of each) dinner plate, salad plate, mug and cereal bowl/pasta bowl.
The 16-piece set at Williams Sonoma is priced from $256-$260.
The trend of multi-functionality continues with this new countertop unit from Breville. The Smart Oven Air Fryer puts 11 cooking functions at the fingertips of the home cook. The Element iQ system takes care of much of the work, setting the ideal cooking time and temperature for baking, toasting, pizza, cookies and slow cooking.
The oven is equipped with 11 functions including toast, bagel, bake, roast, broil, pizza, cookies, reheat, warm, air-fry and slow cook.
Notably, the air-fry function combined intense heat and maximum airflow to create crispy, browned results. The dual-speed convection mode cooks food up to 30% faster and super convection produces an even crispier result, ideal for airfrying and roasting.
