Cookware isn't high tech. Pots and pans don't have a phone built in them or something. And yet, they can still impress you.
Everything, at one time or another, was brand new technology. That huge phone people laugh at in 1980s parody videos? In 1986, that was cutting edge. That vintage turntable you're so proud of? In 1956, it was as new as it got! There was even a time when the bifocals you've got on your head were the "killer app" of their day. Admittedly, that was way way way back, but even still, right? So be happy that cookware hasn't advanced to holograms and teleporters. That just means they got it right long, long ago.
