Leave it to the Japanese to come out with technologically advanced cookware made from fired jewels. Spaceships are probably plated with the Titanium Gold Skillet ($120), protected by its high-heat capacity and non-burn treatment. This higher-than-thou pan even has golden hygiene with a naturally anti-bacterial surface. Rust-proof, durable, light-weight, and dishwasher safe, we're sold on the entire titanium line; our personal picks for premium drinkware are the beautiful iridescent Titanium Double-Wall Tumbler ($100) and the royal blue and purple Titanium Beer Cup ($69). Very special cups, indeed.
