A kitchen, by default, is a pretty dangerous place, and the Bon Appétit test kitchen is no exception. The atmosphere may not be quite as intense as a professional restaurant one, but there's still fire and knives everywhere you look. And let's not forget about the pointy corners and hard surfaces.

Our editors have tried many forms of culinary abuse on these five tools -- applying triple-digit temperatures, dropping them, burning foods in them -- but they've managed to survive intact. They're definitely a little banged up and scorched-looking or whatever, but they still work, which is all we really care about anyway.
