Best cooking present ideas

1. For those home cooks who love the good knives

I am absolutely mad about having a great set of knives in my kitchen. Call me mad, but I truly believe, that having and using great quality knives, makes me become a better cook! Or is it just in my head? Haha…

Here is my favorite set of knives that I personally use and would highly recommend for a special gift for an amazing home cook:

Global 7-piece Ikasu Knife Block Set

Bestseller Global Knife set!

I think that there is some psychology behind it when you feel like you can create amazing things with food, you definitely have better chances of succeeding, right?

I have been using Global knives for years now. I know that they are expansive, but you get what you pay for here.

2. For those who love pasta

If the person who you are buying for doesn’t love pasta, then please scroll to the next point!

I am absolutely in love with pasta and there is no better pasta than the home-cooked pasta. Ok, so I am not a pasta master yet, but I am still practicing.  

We all know, that my second love (first love is my wife) is smoked meat, but my wife makes a killer pasta! And that is why I recommend that you gift this awesome gadget to that special person.

KitchenAid KSMPRA 3-Piece Pasta Roller & Cutter Attachment Set


Ok, so you might not become a pasta sensation overnight with this pasta roller, but you will definitely be on your way. I have tried and failed terribly! I think I shall leave it to the wife.

3. For those who love smoked food

Yup, now you are in my territory! This is obvious here, right? The best way to complete the cooking set of any household is to get the best food smoker that money can buy! Ok, or at least the smoker that suits your gift budget, and there are plenty of those too!

Dyna-Glo DGO1890BDC-D Wide Body Vertical Offset Charcoal Smoker

Don’t worry here, I am a specialist in this area and I can help you choose the right one. You can check out my post about these offset charcoal smoker options and see what you can find there!

In my personal opinion, there is nothing better on a fork then a succulent piece of smoked meat, but that is just me. And if someone had surprised me with a new smoker as a present, I would be eternally grateful! (Hint, hint wife.)

4. For those love blending and mixing

Ok, so this is the best gift that we have received from a brother Jimmy. And I really cannot believe that he had come up with this idea himself. It must’ve been his wife that thought of that one for sure. Regardless, this was a perfect gift! 

These days, we use it for a number of awesome and innovative recipes. We tend to use it mostly for juices for our older kids, smoothies for our youngest, and sauces for my smoked meat. 

NutriBullet NBR-1201 12-Piece High-Speed Blender/Mixer System, Gray (600 Watts)

I know, to do a sauce with a NutriBullet, is cheating the system a bit, but it is so easy! 

For one of the sauces that I make, I simply get all the juices from the pan into the container, add pre-fried mushrooms, cream, and some fresh herbs, nutrify it, and voila! Perfect mushroom sauce!

5. For those who love a good sandwich

This guy is a champion sandwich press and all arounder griller! I use this press almost every day for amazing panini sandwiches. Simply chuck some of your favorite ingredients, pop some cheese and let it melt!

Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler, Silver, Black Dials

What makes this cooking gadget extra awesome, it is the fact that it can do five things, not just one! to be specific, this is a heavy-duty contact grill, a panini press, a full grill, a full griddle, as well as a half grill/half griddle. Yup, perfect!

Final Thoughts

There are way too many present gifted that these days that are rarely used or really appreciated. Why not gift something that will make a difference in someone’s life!
