Stocking Stuffers and Gift Ideas for the Home Cook

Still searching for the few gifts or stocking stuffers for the home cook (or anyone who loves Kitchen Gadgets?) It can be difficult to choose gifts that a special someone would love (and actually use.)
Personally, I love kitchen gadgets- I spend a lot of time in the kitchen and anything that will make my life easier or is just fun to use, is always a good thing! I’ve put together a collection of my favorite kitchen gadgets in case you need a few more stocking stuffers or last minute gifts for friends and family. (Many of these items come straight from my wish list or are things I already have and definitely recommend!)
I’m an online shopper and most of the items in this guide are available via Amazon Prime. If you’re not already a Prime Member, you can sign up for a free 30 day trial here, which would be great for any last minute Christmas gifts! (Amazon prime gives you FREE Two-Day Shipping for eligible purchases, unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows with Prime Instant Video, and the ability to borrow books from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library for $99 a year.)
Amazon Prime in itself makes a fabulous gift. If you would like to give someone the gift of Prime, use this link. (This link allows you to purchase a Prime membership and not be auto billed the next year.)
I have one of these that does not have the odor remover tool, but I wish it did. The tines hold the onion steady and guides your knife for even slices and the attached stainless steel oval supposedly removes onion odor from hands.
This Pot Clip attaches directly to the pot or pan edge and holds utensils in place while cooking. (Keeps the mess in the pot, not on your counter! This is more for my hubby than me. I don’t seem to have any issues setting my spoon on a paper towel…)
Make it easy to cook soup in the microwave and never burn your fingers again. This 3-piece set, ceramic bowl fits inside microwave safe plastic bowl allowing the food inside the bowl to cook fast and stay warm.
How neat would it be to make quesadillas on the grill? The quesadilla basket protects the tortillas and holds the form of the quesadilla while they are cooking. (I wouldn’t mind having that quesadilla right about now either!)
These would be great for pulled briskets and pork. I often use my kitchenaid for chicken, but I find that it shreds the meat in very small pieces. These claws are heat resistant to 450 degrees and have long handles that keep hands away from food while in use.
This one is the most expensive of the bunch, but if you are wanting a powerful blender, this is a good one. I bought one of these to test out and I really like it. (The one I bought didn’t come with the 48 ounce jar, like this one does. I bought the smaller version for smoothies.) What I like about the “Auto IQ” is that it runs through a cycle that allows the air bubbles to rice to the top and resettles the food/at the bottom for perfect blending. Great for smoothies and frozen stuff. I do also have a vitamix and I think the Ninja IQ has the vitamix beaten on this point!
