I am a big foodie.  I absolutely love a good meal and enjoy cooking for others.  During the holidays, many of us find ourselves cooking even more than usual for our friends and family.  With Christmas just around the corner, you might be asking yourself what you can gift your favorite cook.  The best kind of gift, is one that is both fun and efficient.  Here are a few of my personal favorites from my own kitchen.  You might even find something from this list that you’d like to add to your own wish list.

Many of us have used a slow-cooker at one point or another, or at the very least, enjoyed a delicious meal prepared in one.  They are a great gift for the busy individual, as they offer a healthier, low-fat method of cooking and require the minimum amount of effort.  What’s not to love about that?!  I love the Le Creuset Signature Cast-Iron Round Dutch Oven, as it locks in moisture and delivers a tender, succulent dish.  It comes in 15 different colors, so you are sure to find one to blend nicely with anyone’s kitchen.

I always like to add a little extra seasoning to my dishes.  These stainless steel Trudeau Graviti Electric Salt & Pepper Mills with satin finish are a great addition to any kitchen.  You simply turn these battery-operated mills over and the blades do the work for you.  Turn them upright, and they shut off.  To add a nice personal touch, you can have them personalized.

Add a little extra flavor to cocktails, baking and cooking with this Chef’n Citrus Juicer.  This easy to squeeze, handheld juicer works well with any halved small citrus and extracts every drop of juice, and removes virtually all pulp.  For the cocktail enthusiast in your life, you could even package this with their favorite liquor, a few limes, lemons and small oranges for a cocktail ready experience.

I’ve saved my favorite item for last.  Wolf’s E Series Transitional Convection Steam Oven installs flush with cabinetry or integrates into anyone’s kitchen design.  Features include 10 cooking modes to make meals easy, an easy-access water tank providing 90 minutes of steam cooking and a gourmet mode that adjusts time, temperature and humidity for perfect results.  If you are looking to make life easier for the cook in your life, this is the perfect gift, albeit probably for yourself because of the price tag. But I promise it is worth every penny!
