Stick Food Processor

Why pull out the huge food processor to make a smoothie? Instead, making a smoothie or mixing up soup can be as easy as blending with a stick blender – and so much quicker to clean up. Simply wave the immersion blender around inside the glass, and you have an instant smoothie.

Cutting Mats

Cooks of all types love the vibrant color coordinated cutting boards for food prep. Chop the food in one area, and the cutting mats make transporting the food to the pan a breeze!

Splatter Screen

Frying foods, simmering juices, and boiling sauces can all send liquids bouncing out of the pan and onto your stove. Alleviate the problem with a splatter screen. Choose one with steam release holes if you like your vegetables crunchy.

Cast Iron Cleaner

Do your friends use cast iron? If so, this little square of chainmail will surprise and delight them. They are used to scrub even the hardest and most burnt bits off any cast-iron pan with only a little effort. Someone should have come up with this idea a long time ago!

Oil Atomizer

Once your friends have tried the oil atomizer, they will wonder how they could ever live without it! No more glops of oil or uneven salad spread, the sprayer allows you to pull the trigger and let a fine mist cover the bottom of the pan or dress the salad perfectly.

Vegetable Spiralizer

Give the gift of a spiralizer and allow your friends to turn any vegetable into a fabulous noodle. From carrots to zucchinis to sweet potatoes, everyone loves them – even children. Add sauce for a tasty meal in just a few minutes.

Whether you want to give a practical kitchen gift or a surprisingly fun present, there is something on the list above for anyone. Check the items out and find one for yourself as well!
