Coffee drinkers are a particular bunch; this is well known. However it's not all about whether they prefer a dark roast to a light roast or what temperature at which they like to have their coffee served.

Once you adjust to using a touch screen, other technologies can quickly seem clunky and outdated. Why mess around with buttons when it's so much easier to just touch what you want to change? That's the theory behind the TSM2 touch-screen timer and clock from CDN. Touch the screen, follow the prompts, and the timer counts up or down up to 100 hours. You can also stop and restart the timer quickly if you're juggling multiple food prep tasks.

Lately, the gadget I use most in the kitchen is my iPod Touch. I use it to look up recipes, cooking videos, and more. But the kitchen is a messy place, and I don't love the idea of the same hands that touched raw chicken then cradling my iPod.
