The Collapsible Cooking Pot

COLLMY KITCHEN IS a mess. I?m not trying to make excuses, but the space is tiny, and I mean tiny in the New York City sense of the word, which is totally different than tiny in Los Angeles, Dallas, or Omaha. My pots and pans are stuffed into whatever drawer happens to have room, something that is becoming increasingly scarce. I?d swap at least a few of my sturdier metal pieces for the space I?d save with something like the X Pot?if only it would work on my stove.

This silicone cooking pot, from Sea to Summit, collapses to become as flat as a pancake. The X Pot doesn?t have the heft and permanence of a cast-iron pan or stainless cookware, but that?s offset by the supreme convenience.
