If you have a special lady in your life who absolutely comes to life in the kitchen, you’ll want to stick around for this article. Cooking is a passion for many people — combining unique flavours and textures to create something spectacular for the tastebuds is an art that can only be perfected with hard work, dedication and endless practice. Nothing pleases a cook more than receiving the perfect gift that they can put to the test in the kitchen, and in today’s article, we school you through the top 6 gifts for her — the one and only kitchen diva in your life. Read on to find out more!
1. Wireless Smart Meat Thermometer
Every cook knows that there’s a fine line between perfectly done meat and an over done, chewy as a boot steak or roast. Sure, you could get her a standard meat thermometer, but where’s the fun in that? Introducing every cook’s #1 companion – the wireless smart meat thermometer. This kitchen gadget is one that will certainly not let her down!
Most smart meat thermometers come with two sensors — one that tells you the ambient temperature inside an oven and another that tells you the true temperature of your meat. What really makes this gadge special, though, is its smart capabilities. The ability to seamlessly connect to a mobile phone app that then allows you to choose from three different cooking modes (rare, medium and well done) based on meat type, and then set the desired cooking time and temperature all with the touch of a button, is a powerful feature for multitasking chefs to say the very least.
2. A Gorgeous Stand Mixer
A quality stand mixer is something that every avid home cook needs in their arsenal. Some of the world’s most popular stand mixer brands include KitchenAid, Kenwood and Cuisinart. Many assume that stand mixers are only something a baker would covet, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Sure, they’re the perfect kitchen appliance for baking cakes and perfecting luscious tarts, but they also come with features including meat grinding, pasta rolling, ice cream churning and so much more. If she doesn’t already have one, the time to get one is now!
3. Adjustable Tablet Stand
If she loves cooking, chances are she has dozens if not hundreds of online recipes saved, whether they’re from Pinterest, food blogs or recipe websites. The last thing anyone wants is to have to run back and forth to their tablet or iPad when in the midst of cooking a sumptuous feast, which is where the adjustable tablet stand comes in super handy. This simple but incredibly useful piece of equipment is all a cook needs to prop their tablet up in order to freely access recipes and instructions without having to skelter around the kitchen — an absolute must have!
4. The Perfect Pizza Stone
For the lady who just loves to host pizza parties, a pizza stone is an absolute must have. A pizza stone truly changes your pizza-making game by acting as a point of high heat transfer in any oven or grill. Pizza dough that is placed on a pre-heated stone instantly cooks the crust, thus mimicking the cooking style of a traditional brick oven. The result? Pizzeria-worthy pies that are absolutely to die for!
5. The All Rounder
If you really want to spoil someone, the best thing you can do is to invest in a thermal cooker on their behalf. These versatile kitchen appliances can be a fantastic gift for any ambitious culinarian who’s looking to master the world’s most labour-intensive dishes. Dishes like ramen from scratch or braised pork belly, and other dishes that may involve some form of slow cooking, can be completed in a breeze with a quality thermal cooker. As thermal cookers also retain their own heat with minimal fuss, they are also a highly preferable eco-friendly alternative over traditional pressure cookers too.
6. Viva La Le Creuset
Last but not least, we guarantee that every home cook will burst out in joy if you gift them with Le Creuset cookware. Le Creuset is a premium (and incredibly popular) brand of French cookware that is renowned for its colourfully-enameled cast-iron make. The brand’s cast iron Dutch ovens are widely considered the best in the industry and are considered iconic in the world of cooking. The best part is that every piece of Le Creuset cookware comes with a lifetime warranty: if there is a problem or cookware somehow breaks, it is replaced without question or hassle. This is one gift that is guaranteed to last her forever.
