Magnets can do more than just heat your meals—they can power the rest of your cooking gadgets as well.

The Haier Cordless Blender is the first such device to part ways with power outlets. Instead, you install a power transmitter (read: induction coil) in your kitchen counter top and place the blender on that. [Haier]

Logistics fail!

Usually the purpose of going wireless is to expand your freedom with a device by removing the tether that is the cord. This device constrains you to a significantly smaller area than a corded unit. Instead of being able to use it anywhere in the kitchen you're now constrained to a 12 inch circle (not that you're currently limited to the kitchen - blend in the bathroom for all I care...)

Given that blenders are typically high-current high-torque devices it probably sucks balls to boot. Give me a Blendtec any day...
