5 Great Christmas Gifts for Cooks

Updated on October 26, 2011

I'm married to a truly great cook who loves his gadgets. With this in mind, and with hubby's approval on each, I've rounded up the perfect selection of gift options for cookery lovers everywhere.

Chef's 5 Piece Knife Set

These great knives really are amazing value. They make prep time fly by as they swiftly make light work of any chopping, slicing, paring or filleting need. This superb 5-piece knife set comprises of a 7-inch Santoku, 5-inch Santoku, 3.5-inch Paring Knife, Sharpening Stick and stylish Carrying Case. Knives feature Ice-Tempered Stainless Steel Blades w/ precision cut sharpened cutting edges and hollow grounds to reduce sticking. Knives and Sharpening Stick feature full steel handles w/ seamless bonded and polished bolsters and non-slip surfaces.

BonJour Brushed Aluminum Chef's Torch

Another 'must have' chef's tool is the blow-torch. An essential requisite for making restaurant quality desserts, this great product offers a variety of uses including caramelizing sugars, browning meringue, or melting cheese for toppings. Made from die cast aluminium, this great quality product also features a useful fuel level indicator window. Superb value and a chef's gift that will be treasured and well used!

Essential Julia Childs Volumes

These immortal volumes belong on the bookshelves of every great cook. Not only do they make the perfect gift, they are a keepsake that will be treasured and passed down through the generations. The perfect choice for lovers of cooking and good food everywhere!

Prepara Oil Mister

I just love this! It's just the perfect way to infuse everyday vegetable or sunflower oil with your own unique blend of herbs, spices, or leaves, to provide an infusion that really captures flavour. A product that will be used every single day, this great value curator of oils is perfect for greasing pans, flavouring meat, seasoning salad and a hundred other things that will make recipes taste wonderful.

Kiss the Cook Apron

My selection just wouldn't be complete without the ultimate 'Kiss the Cook' apron. This one is superb quality and, having tested it on my family, I can vouch that one size really does seem to fit all! Buy with a smile and give with a grin! The chef in your life will just love this.
