Holiday Gift Guide For The Foodie In Your Life
I’m so excited to be sharing my first gift guide with you guys. It’s the holiday season and that means gift shopping is in full swing. I gathered up a handful of my favorite kitchen tools that I think would be perfect gift ideas for the “foodie” in your life. These are kitchen essentials I swear by and own myself.
My Holiday Gift Guide Highlights
First I want to say thank you to Cuisinart for sending me this stunning air fryer. My curiosity sparked with air frying recently and I cannot tell you how excited I was to receive this tool. I made Italian Arancini rice balls using the air fryer and was AMAZED by the quick and deeelicious results.
This oven is not only gorgeous, but it’s so easy to use. I was very impressed that no pre-heating was required when using the air fryer method. My recipe needed only 10 minutes until they were finished – and let me tell you they were perfectly crispy and beyond yummy. Whether your in need of a second oven or looking for a healthier way to fry recipes – this needs to be on your holiday wish list!
Calphalon Non-Stick Everyday Pan ($49.99)
A pan you can use for any type of recipe. This pot is perfect for egg omelettes, frittatas, or a quick one pan dinner. I love being able to transfer this pan from the stove top to the oven. It’s a spacious for bigger meals, easy to clean, and great for transferring with the side handles.
Thank you, Calphalon for sending me this pan. It’s incredible quality and a great kitchen essential!
Other Gift Guide Favs
Staub Cast-Iron Dutch Oven ($99) – This cast-iron dutch oven is made so well, and it’s heavy duty design is perfect to seal in moisture for high heat roasting or baking. I love using this dutch oven for pot roasts, bread, pizza, and whole chickens.
Vitamix – Ascent Series ($299.95) – Vitamix is one of my absolute favorite kitchen tools that I own. This blender is so versatile – perfect for creamy smoothies or a tool to use for meal preparation. But one of my favorite qualities with my Vitamix blender is the fact that it boils soup IN the blender – that should show you how powerful this blender is. This is the perfect gift to say “I love you” with!
Breville Milk Frother ($134.94) -The coffee drinker in your life will love this gift! Even though I’m a straight black coffee drinker, I love making a creamy, rich latte in this frother. It’s so easy to use with quick and delicious results!
Cuisinart Hand Blender ($28.99) – This tool is one I recommend for every foodie. It is an essential in the kitchen for making purees, soups, and tomato sauces. Rather than having to transfer your ingredients to a blender to puree, you can use this as a quick way to blend your ingredients.
Striped Kitchen Apron ($14) – This apron is great quality, comfortable, and such a good price! Spending a lot of time in the kitchen can be messy, so having a functional (and cute) apron is always a must.
Handheld Parmesan Cheese Grater ($9.97) – I love this cheese grater so much. In Italy they use classic box graters similar to this one. It’s so efficient, easy to use, and is a beautiful gift to give the cheese lover in your life.
Fagor Multi-Cooker/Instant Pot ($124.95) – I actually received this for Christmas as a gift last year and was beyond excited about it. It has a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice maker, and so much more. Pressure cookers can be pretty intimidating and I love how easy and approachable this one is. I’ve made homemade broths, soups, and stews in and love how quick and easy it is!
Lodge Cast-Iron Pan ($14.88) – This is such an essential in my kitchen. Lodge uses zero synthetics when coating their pans, are made with quality cast-iron, and all at an affordable price. This pan is great for cooking recipes at high heat on the stove top or for roasting in the oven. It will become a staple cooking pan in your kitchen!
Citrus Zester ($6.85) – Every foodie needs a good citrus zester. And it may seem like a simple tool, but it’s essential in my kitchen. I’m always using this tool to zest lemons and oranges – it’s very easy to use with quick results!
Maple Cutting Board ($26.36)- I love having a wood cutting board in the kitchen. This cutting board can be used for meal preparation or cheese and charcuterie. Beautiful quality at an affordable price!
I hope this list got you inspired to get your shopping on for that favorite foodie in your life (or let’s be real, for you)! What’s your favorite go-to kitchen tool? Let me know in the comments below!
