Gift Ideas: Kitchen Gadgets for People Who Love to Cook

Updated on August 31, 2010

People who enjoy cooking tend to enjoy adding the latest kitchen gadgets and goodies to their already well-stocked kitchens. Speaking from personal experience as a cooking enthusiast, I know that I always appreciate gifts that contribute to my favorite hobby! There are so many great kitchen gadgets and tools available that it's easy to find unique holiday gifts for those who love to cook, whether you select a brand new gadget, or a modern take on a classic favorite.

Lids Off® Automatic Jar Opener from Black and Decker

This is a fun kitchen gadget for anyone, and can be a great benefit to everyone who struggles with opening stubborn jar lids on occasion. While most cooking enthusiasts will enjoy this gadget, it can really be a must-have for anyone who has arthritis or other health problems that impact grip or strength.

Lids Off® provides one-touch opening for just about every type of standard-sized jar. It automatically adjusts to accommodate jars ranging from four inches wide and seven inches tall. There are other jar lids on the market, but this one is my favorite because of it's compact size. It's smaller than similar products, so is easy to store and isn't unsightly when in use.

Food Saver Vacuum Food Sealer

If the amateur chefs on your holiday shopping lists are like me, they are really busy and don't have an opportunity to cook every day. I love to prepare several meals that I can freeze for later on those rare occasions that I have a block of time free for cooking. With a vacuum sealer, it's easy to safely prepare foods for freezer storage. There are several different models of Food Saver vacuum sealers, each of which allows you to precisely remove air from the packaging, successfully preparing food for freezing without worries about freezer burn. For more information, see Food Saver.

Pampered Chef Forged Cutlery Carving Set

If you don't own cutlery from Pampered Chef, you don't know what you are missing. The cooking enthusiasts on your holiday shopping list will be thrilled to receive this outstanding carving set crafted from high-carbon German steel. As with the entire Pampered Chef Forged Cutlery collection, the set has outstanding strength and durability. The knife maintains a perfect edge, and makes it easy to carve even very thin slices of turkey, ham, roast, etc. that are perfect every time. For More Information, see Pampered Chef.

These are just a few of the many great kitchen gadgets that the foodies on your holiday shopping list will treasure. Do you have a great idea for a kitchen gadget holiday gift? Feel free to share in the comments section below!
