Are you shopping for last-minute gifts for people who love to cook or bake, plan to learn to cook, or anyone you think would love an addition to their growing kitchen appliance, read on for 10 of our favorite kitchen items you can buy:
1. Dash Mini Waffle Maker
For kids and teens who love to cook, the perfect gift is just under 20 bucks. This small-sized waffle iron is gorgeous! Just look at those cute solid colors and special-edition patterns (I am a fan of the galaxy one).
This 4-inch waffle maker features a non-stick surface and pre-heating indicator light (that signals when the device is ready to cook).
2. Crock-Pot Slow cooker
Perfect for busy parents, grandparents, or couples, this programmable slow cooker allows anyone to cook a warm meal without the need to look after the pan the entire time.
It is designed with a digital timer, so it automatically turns to a warm setting once the dish is cooked. No more worries about burning your food while you finish other tasks. Plus, the stoneware is removable and dishwasher-safe, which means cleanup is also easy.
3. ThermoWorks ThermoPop
If you know someone who loves to cook meat, this accurate thermometer is a must-buy. Give it as a Christmas gift and maybe you can get an awesome steak back.
Having a digital thermometer takes the guesswork out of cooking, which is made extra important when it comes to meat because the line of undercooked and overcooked meat is sometimes thin.
4. Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker
An ice cream maker is always a crowd-pleaser, so if you know someone who has young kids, the Cuisinart Ice Cream maker would instantly turn him/her into a hero.
There’s no learning curve either! So the person who receives this gift can instantly make ice cream or non-dairy cold treats out of the box, and serve them in under an hour.
5. Mueller Austria Cordless Electric Kettle
If you’re on a budget, but want to impress someone, this electric kettle will do the trick. It works like any other electric kettle, except it is see-through and made of a mix of plastic and Borosilicate glass, allowing users to see the water boil every time they use the kettle.
Not only is this very therapeutic, but this kettle is also safe (there’s an auto-shutoff feature) and pretty (there’s a built-in LED indicator) as well.
6. Marcato Atlas Pasta Machine
If you’re gifting someone who is adventurous and you think would love to learn how to make homemade pasta, this brand will definitely wow anyone. Even kids would enjoy this tool and could pave the way for them to make any noodle and pasta they could imagine. It looks simple, but it is well-designed, easy to use and affordable.
7. Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler
If you know someone who loves grilling only when the weather is good, an indoor, multifunctional griller is something they’d love receiving as Christmas gifts. This is a countertop device, which means you could also store it wherever available.
Cuisinart’s model is a must-have because it works as both a press and a griddle, each with separate temperature control for every function.
8. Multifunctional Ninja Foodi Cooker
For the minimalist who loves to experiment with dishes in the kitchen, the Ninja Foodi cooker is wow-worthy because it is a single device but can serve as your steamer, broiler, slow cooker, air fryer, and food dehydrator in one. That’s so much space saved, but a lot of cooking functions are covered thanks to the TenderCrisp technology.
The Ninja Foodi Cooker lets you cook frozen food straight away, so you no longer have to thaw wait time. It just goes straight to cooking until your dishes are crispy.
9. Dash Rapid Egg Cooker
This egg-cooker is an adorable gift for kids who love hard-boiled eggs. It’s also an ideal Christmas gift for someone you know is planning to eat low-carb or keto.
The Dash Rapid Egg Cooker is designed to cook six eggs at a time, letting you “boil” eggs perfectly each time.
10. KitchenAid stand mixer
Are you feeling generous? The gift of all gifts would probably be this. KitchenAid stand mixers are known to be passed from one generation to the next – they’re pretty durable.
Plus, they could serve multiple uses beyond mixing ingredients for baking. There’s a world full of KitchenAid add-on accessories, which would turn your KitchenAid stand mixer into a meat grinder, food processor,
If you’re in a rush (Christmas is getting very near after all), I hope this list will help you decide on some awesome gifts for your friends and family. They’re highly recommended everywhere.
