What do rocket scientists do in their spare time? Design cookware, apparently. A Oxford University professor has created a new kind of saucepan that heats up 30-percent faster than traditional cookware. He calls it "Flare," and it borrows from the same principals used to efficiently transfer and distribute heat in jet engines. The pan gets its name from a series of ridges that run around the circumference of its base -- these fins draw flames up the side of the pan and distribute heat evenly over its aluminum body. This design not only cooks food faster, but it uses significantly less energy to do it. It just goes to show: you don't have to be a rocket scientist to make cookware, but it helps. The £49.99 saucepan will go on sale in the UK next month.
