One of the fun things about the Housewares show is discovering kitchenware companies from around the world. This is a blessing and a curse, because while it's cool to see what's coming out of Europe, for example, it's also a bummer not to be able to buy it anywhere in the US. That's exactly how we felt about these thermal cook-and-store pieces from Italian brand Ater.

As you can see above, there are two components to these containers: an inner ceramic baking dish and an outer double-wall polypropylene thermal sleeve. The baking dish goes directly from the oven into the sleeve, which then keeps it warm for hours — a great design for parties or picnics. All sizes and colors available, but alas, no distributor yet in the US.
