Amco Tomato Slicer - #10 - Beginning of Kitchen Gadgets for Stocking Stuffers

Want a tomato sliced into uniform 1/4-inch thick slices? (Mine are always wavy and weird!) In one easy motion, this slicer will make you look like a chef! Place the tomato (or egg, or cheese, etc...) in the holder. Bring the slicing blades down and wahlah! Perfect slices everytime!

Cuisipro Apple Corer - #9 - A Corer is a Must-Have Kitchen Gadget

I have used a lot of apple corers in my day. A lot of the time, it's hard to get them out of the apple! That's what makes this corer unique -- it has a unique lever that splits the tool in half for easy release. Someone is a genius! Dishwasher safe-top rack only. Can also be used to core pears.

Fingertongs - #8 - on our list of Kitchen Gadgets for Stocking Stuffers

No, you're not a Smurf! But these handy blue fingers will become a favorite pretty fast! Ever picked up a lid off a hot pan and burned yourself? The Finger tongs will save you a trip to the burn unit!

They are silicone cooking tongs you wear on your hand. For cooks who love to be close to their food - no more burned fingers. Can be used on either hand and in a variety of applications. Tongs are 7 in length and are dishwasher safe.

Gizmos and Gadgets

Household Items for Gifts or Stocking Stuffers

The gadgets listed are for slicing tomatoes and a new twist on coring apples (mmmm, I can taste that hot apple pie). Some of the others include flipping hot foods without burning yourself and mincing garlic to perfection with ease. And, who doesn't want their glasses cleaned to a sparkling shine?

These inexpensive but very useful stocking stuffers or gifts are sure to please their recipients. The added bonus is they also please the giver's pocketbook! (All are under $20 each.) So, get out your list, check it twice and start marking off some names as finished!

Nextrend Garlic Twist - #7 -- Kitchen Gadgets for Stocking Stuffers

A fun, easy to use alternative to a garlic press and much safer than using a chef's knife (I'd cut off my fingers!). It has a set of cross cutting teeth that mince the garlic clove. No waste either! If you have a garlic loving cook on your list, this is the perfect stocking stuffer.

Easy cleaning by rinsing it under hot water with a mild soap. Yup, I love this kitchen gadget!

Crystal Clear Bottle and Glass Cleaner by Full Circle - #6 on our Stocking Stuffers List

This eco-friendly glass and bottle cleaner is a great way to make your glassware shine while being kind to the environment. The long handle and round sponge make it easy to clean the tough-to-reach spots in many shapes and sizes of bottles. Replace that old plastic bristled bottle cleaner now! Full Circle's bottle and glass cleaner is plant-based, with a handle made of renewable bamboo and sponge made of cellulose.

5 More Great Stocking Stuffers to Go!

#5 to #1

These last 5 stocking stuffer ideas cover many areas too: cutting strawberries quick and easy, filling your storage baggies without making a mess, an eco friendly food scraper, a scraper for cleaning your glass top stove that won't mar the surface and spouts to attach to your mixing bowls and pots so you won't spill a drop. There is something for every cook in the kitchen!

Don't forget Grandma, your Aunt, teachers, etc...

Chef'n Strawberry Slicester - #5 Slicin' and Dicin' with Kitchen Gadgets

One squeeze of the handle and you get perfect strawberry slices. How great is that?

No more chasing those slippery strawberries with your knife! Its' one handed operation makes it easy to slice right over the bowl or plate. You can use it for grape tomatoes, olives, eggs or mushrooms just as easily. Excellent gadget in my book! Durable plastic handles. Top-rack dishwasher-safe.

Don't forget your

Mail Person


Great Aunt

Secret Santa

Sorority Exchange

Rotary Club Exchange

Church Group Members

A small gift lets them know you appreciate them!

Misto Gourmet Olive Oil Spritzer - #4

Want to add a spritz of oil to the veggies you're grilling? Spray a light coat in a pan or skillet? or a bunch of other uses? This is your mister. Never again will you have to buy an aerosol can of cooking oil. You'll know exactly what your getting because you put it in there!

Mixing Bowl (and Pot) Spouts - #3 in Kitchen Gadgets for Christmas Stocking Stuffers

My grandmother had an old mixing bowl with a spout. I loved it! I am not as lucky. My favorite mixing bowls are stainless and spoutless. Enter spouts!

These are fantastic. Now my cake batter, pancake batter, brownies, gravies and sauces can pour quickly and easily right from any bowl or pan I use. Heaven!

What other uses can you find?

Baggie Rack by Jokari - #1 The Ultimate Kitchen Gadgets!

      What terrific 'gadgets' for the kitchen. I really like that glass & bottle cleaner brush. Besides glasses, I can see it being a very handy gadget for cleaning the glass carafe of a drip coffee maker. My current 'brush' doesn't fit to the curves and clean very well.
