Only the most pig-headed cook would insist on owning a lid for every pot in the kitchen. Lids can be difficult to store, but are really a kitchen necessity.

We've been known to improvise by popping a dinner plate on top of a pot, but isn't this $18 soft silicone lid from the new Japan Collection at MoMA a far more fun alternative?

Best part: when the pan heats up, the steam escapes through the pig's snout!

Now after the jump, we'll show you the MoMA's duck and the amazing shapeshifting bread board...

Whimsy can quickly turn cloying in the kitchen, but the little duckbill on the side of this $35 soy sauce dispenser seems just right to us. Could this also work at the table for people who like to dress their own salad?

We also appreciate the ginger grater with a grippy base and the bread board that (get this!) folds to accommodate the shape of the bread you're cutting. AT:NY covered this outstanding collection too.
