Black + Blum Hot Pot BBQ
For many urban dwellers, summer soirees mean cramped quarters on small balconies or in tiny gardens. This odd hybrid device frees up space stylishly by serving double duty as a planter and a fully functional barbecue. The top half is a terra-cotta pot; the bottom is a charcoal grill made of stainless steel and heat-insulated ceramic coating. A hole in the bottom ingeniously feeds your fire with oxygen when grilling. It comes with a pair of tongs, too, so you'll never lose another burger to a slippery fork again.
