Top 7 Cooking Essential for Christmas 2018
Cooking Essential Gifts:
1. Pasta Maker
When the cook can roll out their own perfectly shaped pasta, they can enjoy authentic Italian cuisine anytime. Pasta making is fun and very easy with the right pasta roller. If they own a KitchenAid Mixer, look for a pasta roller attachment. If they’re working with limited space, consider a pasta roller that attaches to the countertop.
2. Milk Steamer
This one is for the coffee lover who goes beyond the drip machine for their morning brew. A milk steamer will add to their morning ritual and fancy up their java by letting them create latte-worthy froth.
3. Stylish Serveware
A great set of serveware will allow them to take side dishes and entrees from kitchen to table in style. Not only will multi-functional serveware add personal flair to their kitchen, but it will also help them keep things simple. Shop for stoneware or enameled cookware in fun colors that help express their style.
4. Never-Dull Knives
If their current kitchen knives just aren’t cutting it, then a carbon steel knife or knife set is a gift that will never loose its edge. Shop brands like Wusthof, Chicago Cutlery, and Cuisinart for kitchen blades that stay reliably sharp and get the job done.
5. KitchenAid Attachments
Take their kitchen capabilities beyond mixing and stirring. If they already own a KitchenAid mixer, help them explore all the possibilities with new KitchenAid attachments. Give them a spiralizer, grain mill, juicer attachment, pasta cutter, or veggie slicer to take their set up to the next level.
6. Cast Iron Cookware
Not only does some food just taste better cooked in cast iron — you can’t deny cast iron cookware’s trustworthy quality. It’s the piece of cookware that will never let them down. From cornbread and casseroles to their famous mac and cheese, cast iron cookware is sturdy, locks in flavor, and cooks evenly to create mouthwatering dishes.
Whether your favorite foodie is a cheese connoisseur or just likes to spoil themselves with a treat that complements their wine, a cheeseboard is a great gift that makes snacking beautiful. Allow them to showcase their favorite cheddar, creamy brie, and other hors d’oeuvres with a beautiful cheeseboard setup that includes all the right tools.
