My wife enjoys using an internet controlled smart plug to turn her croc pot on and off.  I gave her the idea as a joke, but she loves using it!  I think we will see more IoT in the kitchen.

We can see that the Open Source Hardware Initiatives are playing a major role in the advancements, e.g. Kitchen Utilities here. These boards will show us many more advancements in many day to day applications with electronics.

I guess the plastic pots wouldn't work very well.  I'll have to take a look at the pottery barn.

My brother made one and produced some fantastic meats and cheeses. I haven't messed with that, but I've done some fun stuff involving other things, like hops, malt and barley.

microwave experience

I actually smiled when I read "microwave experience."

It's so true. I love cooking but I hate using microwave, because I have to stand in front of it and wait for the food to get done. 

Unlike standing in front of a stove, in which case I can stir the pot or do something proactively to food, microwave is really an impersonal experience!

@daleste: I built one of those clay pot smokers about 10 years ago after seeing Alton Brown do one on Good Eats.  They work quite well except that finding a clay pot greater than 8 inches in diameter is difficult: most of the larger ones are plastic made to look like clay.  Since I like to do a whole brisket at a time, it doesn't fit.
