The seasoned home chef can make magic in the kitchen with just about anything on hand — but a fancy new tool or accessory is always appreciated! These 13 kitchen gifts help to upgrade the staples of their domain.
1. Instant Pot DUO Plus 3-Quart 9-in-1 Multi-Use Programmable Pressure Cooker
One of the best-selling models of the internet-breaking Instant Pot series, this multi-cooker is a gift-worthy pick because it combines so many functions into one appliance without sacrificing the quality of the end product.
This device serves as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, or even simply a warmer for pre-made dishes. It also features adjustable pressure levels, 10 preset temperatures, and an easy-to-program display.
2. Cravings: Hungry for More
Chrissy Teigen is back for seconds with her latest cookbook, Cravings: Hungry for More. Packed with Teigen’s trademark wit on every page, these savory bites are perfect for weeknights and special occasions alike. Since the book definitely errs on the side of cheat-day fare, it’s sure to be a new favorite of any comfort-food connoisseur.
3. OXO Good Grips Single Serve Pour Over Coffee Dripper
Pour-over coffee somehow just got even easier to make. A new favorite of The Strategist, this analog device is equipped with a water tank, which allows users to measure out the precise amount of boiling water needed for each cup, while also regulating its distribution evenly over the grounds. Just fill and leave it to brew for 3-5 minutes, and you’ll have a perfectly made cup every time.
This kitchen gift pairs best with their favorite bag of (pre-ground) beans, ensuring that they’ll never have to drink the office break-room coffee again!
4. Ninja Professional 72oz Countertop Blender
A countertop necessity for the health-conscious cook, the Ninja is one of the best-reviewed blenders on the market, thanks to its 1,000-watt performance. The pulverizing blades shred through fruits and vegetables and turn ice into snow in just minutes!
Its 72-ounce liquid capacity mixes up extra-large batches, and the large spout is perfect for quick-serving without making a complete mess of the counter.
5. Sagler Marble Mortar and Pestle Set
Some things just taste better when they’re pulverized by hand. This marble set is great for chopping up nuts, grinding guac, whipping up tahini, and cutting flax bits down to size. It’s just under 4 inches wide, so it’s as unobtrusive on their countertop as it is attractive.
6. KitchenAid KSM1APC Spiralizer Attachment
