Top 10 Kitchen Gifts For The Home Cook

by Alli

Do you need a gift for someone who loves to cook? These are my top 10 kitchen gifts for the home cook. 

I love to cook so I get so excited when I receive kitchen-related gifts. I remember when I received my Kitchenaid mixer. It was so many years ago and that mixer still works like a charm. Sure, these mixers are a little on the expensive side but, like Timex, they take a licking and keep on ticking. 

Welcome to Our Annual Festive Christmas Event

1. KitchenAid® Artisan Stand Mixer

Yellow KitchenAid Stand Mixer with silver bowl on counter A stand mixer is a game-changer when it comes to baking. Plus, there are so many colors to choose from. This is my favorite when it comes to the best kitchen gifts. 

2. Immersion Blender

Immersion Blender - Top 10 Kitchen Gifts My mom gifted me an immersion blender about 25 years ago and I still use it and love it! You can use this blender for pureeing batches of soup, sauces, and you can even chop nuts. You can also use an immersion blender to make thick milkshakes and homemade mayonnaise. 

3. Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus Pressure Cooker 

This is the ultimate instant pot! This all-in-one machine is a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, cake maker, stockpot, and steamer. 

4. Breville Smart Air and Convection Toaster Oven

This is one smart cookie! You can air-fry, dehydrate, reheat, warm, broil, bake, roast, and slow cook in this oven. 

5. Le Creuset Signature Cast Iron Dutch Oven 

I use my dutch oven to braise meats in the oven and to make soups and stews on the stovetop. Every cook needs a dutch oven. 

6. Circulon Symmetry 11-Piece Non-Stick Cookware 

Over the years, I’ve tried all the different brands of cookware. My personal favorite is Circulon. I received a set like this for Christmas 2019 and I’m still loving this cookware. It’s also suitable for induction cooking. 

7. Goldtouch Nonstick Bakeware Set

Novice and seasoned cooks alike will love this nonstick bakeware set. These commercial-grade professional-quality pans offer impeccable release and superb performance. This bakeware set is swoon-worthy and always has a spot in my top 10 kitchen gifts.

8. Wusthof Gourmet 16-Piece Knife Set

I love that this gourmet line of knives has been a family-owned company for seven generations! The stainless steel blades resist rust and stains while holding an exceedingly sharp edge. 

9. Springform Cake Pan 

Top 10 Kitchen Gifts - Springform cake pan Every cook needs this leakproof springform pan in the kitchen so I had to add it to my top 10 kitchen gifts. This pan is perfect for cheesecakes, tarts, and bread puddings. 

10. Lodge Cast Iron Skillet 

How to Make Carolina Skillet Cake Every cook needs a good cast-iron skillet. The Lodge company is America’s oldest family-owned cookware foundry. Preseasoned and ready to use, this heavy-weight skillet heats evenly and is 100% toxin-free.  Check out these two dessert recipes I make in my cast iron skillet!
