1. Touchscreen Recipe Reader
What's the high-tech equivalent to yesterday's recipe book? A digital recipe reader with a touchscreen. After all, so many people prefer to record their recipes digitally these days, and it's not always wise to drag your laptop onto the kitchen counter, risking a splash or spill. This touchscreen recipe reader has easy-to-see graphic buttons that you can press to search for a recipe or perform other functions. It takes up very little space because of its 5X7 size - essential when you're talking about gadgets for the kitchen - and it can even be flipped to stand up so that it fills up only a 3X5 space. You can even look up ingredient substitutes or have it alert you when your cookies are ready to come out of the oven. With this recipe reader, you can have thousands of recipes at your fingertips - literally. Buy it on Amazon for $199.99.

3. Digital ID Espresso Maker
Why on earth would this espresso maker cost upward of three thousand dollars? Not only does it produce fresh ground coffee in its stainless steel tank, it also personalizes your coffee according to your preferences. You can program the machine so that it knows exactly how you like your coffee - or your hot chocolate or tea, if that's what you prefer - and you can do the same for up to six people. How does the espresso maker know who you are so that it can personalize your hot drink? Just press your finger to the sensor, and the espresso maker will read your fingerprint and prepare the drink accordingly. Buy it on Amazon and enjoy a unique coffee-making experience.
