Ultra fast, ultra accurate, splash-proof, and beloved by chefs everywhere. This is THE BEST digital thermometer and it’ll make you feel like a pro because there will be no second guessing – that steak IS perfectly medium-rare without question for once!
I would bargain that the majority of baking fails and disappointments stem from inaccuracy, especially when it comes to measuring ingredients. The best thing you can do to improve your baking, to make your friends and family praise your baking prowess, is to start using a kitchen scale. Seriously. Do it! Add it to your wishlist, gift it to your baking friend, or just buy one right now because it’ll change your baking forever.
The perfect elegant gift for anyone who bakes from scratch, or even anyone interested in food photography, a marble board keeps your pastry as beautiful as the marble itself. Just note that this is very heavy, so wrapping may be a bit of a challenge!
Emile Henry Pie Dish
If you’ve read any of my Ultimate Guides, you know that every little thing can make a difference in your sweet treats, including bakeware. The best bakeware makes for the best treats and when it comes to homemade pies they should be the best. This beautiful pie dish is dishwasher, oven, broiler, freezer, and microwave safe and cooks so beautifully and evenly you’ll feel like a rockstar in the kitchen.
Cookies, cookies, cookies. If you know someone who bakes cookies more than once a month, they NEED a silpat (or two, or three) in their lives. They’re a bit pricey, which makes them a fabulous gift because it’s something a lot of baking enthusiasts won’t buy for themselves.
Pastry Tip Set
These are the pastry tips I use to make gorgeous cupcakes that could totally win a Cupcake War. They are absolutely perfect for piping beautiful frosting designs and are a must in any baker’s collection.
If you know someone who loves her cocktails, especially a Moscow Mule, she will adore these copper mugs. They’re so gorgeous and classy and are a perfect hostess gift.
KitchenAid Hand Blender
KitchenAid sent me this stick blender this past year and I immediately fell in love. It has SO MANY functions, it’s like having a sous chef in the kitchen.
Hamilton Beach Set n’ Forget Programmable Slow Cooker
Heaven is knowing dinner is in the slow cooker… and that it WILL NOT OVERCOOK. There’s nothing worse than stringy beef stew or bland cardboard pieces of chicken. With the programmable functions of this slow cooker, not only do you not have to beg someone to turn off your slow cooker while you’re still at work, but you can also set it to turn off once the food reaches the perfect temperature so no more dry meat. YAY.
