Holiday Gift Ideas for the Cook - THE ULTIMATE list for your favorite home cook! From stocking stuffers to splurges. Something for everyone!

I get a lot of questions about what products I use in the kitchen.
Today I am sharing all of my FAVORITES!
There is something in every price range too! From stocking stuffers to splurge items.
These are my MUST HAVES in the kitchen.

Williams-Sonoma Goldtouch® Nonstick 15-Piece Bakeware Set
This bakeware set is THE BEST!
Chicken Legs bought me this set a few years ago and I absolutely LOVE it.
I threw out all of my old pans and only use these now.
They cook evenly, nothing sticks.
I use something from this set every day.

I can’t live without my Le Creuset Dutch Oven!
It is a must for making homemade soups and sauces.
I’ve tried other brands (cheaper), but they weren’t even close to the quality of my Le Creuset.
You can use this pot on the stove, in the oven or even on the grill.
PLUS it is dishwasher safe!

Hello, my name is Stephanie and I am a spatula addict!
I have a serious addiction to spatulas. I especially love Tovolo Spatulas.
They are THE BEST.
I have at least 100 spatulas. It drives Chicken Legs crazy!
I have every day spatulas and spatulas for every holiday season.
I swap them out depending on the time of year.
I use the regular sized ones for everything – cooking in the skillet, mixing cakes, cookies.
The small ones are fantastic for spreading butter, getting peanut butter and mayonnaise out of a jar.
LOVE these!

Engraved Rolling Pin
I’ve had these engraved rolling pin on my Christmas list for years, but no-one will get it for me!
They are handmade by a lady in Poland.
When you use the rolling pin on cookie dough, the shape is transferred to the dough.
There are TONS of shapes to choose from.
I am DYING for one! If Chicken Legs doesn’t get me one this year, I’m buying it for myself.


These are my FAVORITE measuring spoons.
They are magnetic. They stack together, so you never lose one!
I hate rummaging through my drawers looking for a specific measuring spoon.
These magnetic spoons are always together!

This is another favorite of mine.
I use these beakers all the time.
I LOVE that they stack together – so easy to store.
Set includes 1-cup, 2/3-cup, 1/2-cup, 2-oz, 1-oz, 1-Tsp and 1-tsp Beakers
Perfect for measuring liquids such as water, milk, oil, vinegar, stock, vanilla extract and more.
Funnel shaped top and spout for easy filling and pouring.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these measuring beakers!
Cute and functional.

This is the perfect tool for perfect for measuring and dispensing peanut butter, honey, shortening, molasses and other sticky ingredients.
I have two of these and use them almost daily.

This my favorite slow cooker.
We’ve had this one for several years and LOVE it!
It is programmable. 
You can set it on LOW for 8 hours and it will turn to WARM when the cycle is complete.
The insert is dishwasher safe.
I recommend this slow cooker to everyone I know!

No kitchen is complete without a KitchenAid mixer.
I use my mixer all the time.
You can make a pound cake in no time flat!
I also LOVE to use my mixer with the dough hook to mix up sausage balls!!
I’m dying for this Raspberry Ice color!
I also LOVE the mixer with the glass bowl. 

I have this food processor and LOVE it!
It is large enough to make pizza dough, cookies, and chop everything!
There are two bowls – 3.5-cup bowl and a 14-cup bowl.
A high-quality knife is a MUST in the kitchen.
Some people are scared of sharp knives, but a dull knife is one of the most hazardous tools in the kitchen.
This Wusthof Cook’s Knife is one of my favorites.
It is a great size. I use it to cut just about everything!
This pizza steel is a MUST if you love homemade pizza.
It has a 20x higher conductivity than ceramic baking stones.
You get gorgeous crusts, better blistering, and faster cook times.
Our homemade pizza tastes just as good, if not better, than the pizza restaurants now!
I tell Chicken Legs that I make the best pizza in town!
All thanks to this Pizza Steel!!
Everybody NEEDS a kitchen scale.
I use my kitchen scale all the time!
It is great for halving recipes and baking with precise measurements.
This scale is great and it is under $15!
All-Clad Cookware
I get a lot of questions about what cookware I use.
I use All-Clad cookware. I have for over 10 years.
A good set of cookware is one of the best investments you can make in the kitchen.
I got my first set of All-Clad probably 13 years ago and it still amazing.
Last year, Chicken Legs got me this set for Christmas.
I wasn’t sure about the “weird” flat lids, but I LOVE them.
I gave my original set to my Mom and she can’t stop raving about how great it cooks.
LOVE this!
Do you have a treasured family recipe?
I found this shop on Etsy that will create a custom print of the recipe.
I ordered one and was shipped this week!
Can’t wait to get it.
I am going to frame it in my office.
I think it would be a great gift! You can order extra prints – one for you, one for someone else.

Pin It!
