2014 Holiday Gift Guide | For The Cook

For the Cook


For the juice lover(s) Breville Compact Juice Fountain – we bought ours five years ago and it works wonderfully. Great for 1-2 people. 

For the smoothie, soup, nut butter and sauce lover Blendtec Total Blender Classic with WildSide & Twister Jars– again we have had ours for five years and it is one of the most used items in our kitchen.  I seriously use it daily. You could always go with the Blendtec Total Blender Classic (sans Twister Jar) but I would recommend getting the add on (it’s on my own ‘to buy list’). 

For the creamy soup and sauce lover Cuisinart Smart Stick– another highly used kitchen tool. I have again had mine for years and it is used a few times per week. So great for creamy blended soups and pasta sauces. Oh and it comes in a variety of colors! 

For the zoodle and salad lover – Brieftons InstantVeg Spiralizer – I know that many people love their Paderno spirializer and I used to own one myself but I bought the Brieftons a few months ago and it’s far superior (IMO). The only down fall to it is that you have to cut your veggies to fit the holder but otherwise it does an amazing job. 

For the cooks stocking– OXO Good Grips Hand-Held Mandoline Slicer – another absolute favorite kitchen item that I use nearly every day and it will fit perfectly in your cooks stocking. Want to take it up a notch (take note hubby) you could go for the OXO Good Grips Complete Grate and Slicer Set or the OXO Good Grips V-Blade Mandoline Slicer

For any cook – Hamilton Beach 70670 Chef Prep 525-Watt Food Processor– you might be thinking ummm you are recommending I get this cheap-o food processor for my loved one? Why, yes I am! I bought this food processor many years ago and I really love it. I know it’s not the super fancy, higher powered ones that are out there but it really does the job. I won’t lie to you I am lusting after the more high end ones but this is a great and affordable option.
