Holiday Gift Guide for Cooks – 2023

Where are all my cooks/ food loving people at? I’m more so on the food loving side then I am the cook side, but still love my kitchen gadgets! We gave Braun a ton of these items as gifts this year, you can see more of his faves/ gift idea on the MENS gift guide.

Seasoning Canisters – Love the labels on these! Super cute bottles too.

Ninja Creami – Say hello to the magical world of making your own ice cream with ease. Seriously, you can make any type of ice cream (tons of recipes online). It’s been a big seller this year.

Chopper with Drawer – This is the one we have and it’s such a time saver!

Blackstone Grill – This was a Father’s Day WIN. Braun has loved using it and it has so many functions. We ended up getting the one with the 2 air fryer baskets + warming station for an all in one cooking experience, but you could also get the one without the air fryers! 

Here’s all the Blackstone accessories he’s bought since getting it:

  1. Grill Press
  2. Grill Caddy
  3. Grill Mat
  4. Wind Grill Guard
  5. Squeeze Bottles
  6. Seasoning Shakers
  7. Basting Cover

Bear Paw Meat Shredders – These are so great for smoked meats, shreds the meat in a breeze.

Scale – I’m surprised at how much I use this, but it’s super handy.

Kitchen Aid Mixer – The gift that keeps on giving. These will last forever and the green color by Magnolia is sooo good.

Oven Mitts – Bought these a few months ago! They’re silicone on the outside so they clean super easy.

Ooni Pizza Oven – This was the year of outdoor kitchen gadgets for Braun. We LOVE the Ooni oven. It can cook pizzas in 30 seconds. One of our favorite family nights is build your own pizza night. So much fun!

Butter Crock – Keeps your butter fresh for so long. Butter goes into the “lid” part and then water into the cup. It creates some magic in there to keep it fresh! It looks good too so you can leave it out on the counter.

Echo Show – We have one of these in the kitchen, it’s nice to have calendar reminder, play music, and even watch your shows!

Dish Gloves – I feel like I can conquer any mess when wearing gloves haha. These are my fave.

Meat Chopper – I’ve shared this for so long, it’s one of my favorite kitchen gadgets ever. Saves so much time!

Electric Dutch Oven – Love, love, love this! We use it for soups, roasts, sauces. It’s AWESOME. I braise my roast first and then slow cook it. It’s amazing.

Knife Set + Cutting Board – Most people’s knives are probably dull. The set of three is perfect for basic cooking needs. I use them all the time!

Always Pan – Again, amazing quality and visually stunning. I don’t even mind if they are out on my oven because they are so cute. This pan can do so many things, sauté, fry, sear. It’s also non-stick and has spot for the wooden spoon. They came out with a cast iron option too!

Ninja Air Fryer – It’s not just an air fryer, is does about a million other things. It grills, broils, toasts, you name it. I have had a lot of air fryers and this is at the top my list as one of my faves. I use it almost every day my fave feature is that is has a griddle.

Rice Paddles – I use this for so many things! Scooping, scraping, as a spatula… Way better than the ones that come with the Instant Pot.

Can Opener – I know what it looks like… but trust me! I was so sick of my manual can openers breaking and this one has been magic.

Butter Dish – This is the one I use, It’s got a great seal on the lid too so it keeps the butter fresh.

4 Waffle Maker – If you have lots of kids or entertain this makes waffles quickly to feed the masses.

Geometry Towels – I have these all over my house because they are the most absorbent towels ever! Not to mention they have the cutest designs all year round! Code TARA saves you.

Pancake Batter Mixer – Super easy to mix + dispense the batter from this!

Perfect Pot – I cannot say enough good things about Our Place pots and pans. I use them every single day. They are non stick and have a place for a wooden spoon that comes with it. Another product I love from Our Place is the ovenware set!

Instant Pot – You’ve heard about this for years. It’s a pressure cooker, my favorite way to use it is to cook chicken and then shred it!

Smart Meat Thermometer – One of Braun’s favorite kitchen gadgets.
