This past year, I have spent more time in the kitchen more than ever. I have enjoyed baking and cooking and also challenging my skills to create dinners at home. There have been many times I have preferred a meal at home to eating out. These are some of my favorite kitchen tools which make them great gifts for the chef or aspiring baker.
This was one of my first Le Creuset items and I love it. I used it all of 2020 for everything from pasta, sauces, and bread. This is a great first piece to start your collection.
One of my favorite things of 2021. I own so many of these and my fridge is full of three sizes. Putting food/leftovers in these containers brings me so much joy. It helps keep food so much fresher than traditional plastic containers.
This is always a hit with kids and adults. The pan and mix make this an easy weekend activity.
I use mine for my French apple cake and chocolate flourless cake. It is a kitchen essential.
This is on my holiday wish list. I already have one Staub pan and want to expand to more.
For nights when you don’t want to cook and still want to entertain. My sister always asks for a French cheese board night when I visit.
One of my VIP of this year. I have used it so many times and it cleans in the dishwasher. It reduced the amount of butter and spray you need when cooking. Everything slides right off!
I purchased this in the navy and it makes me so happy to use. It elevates your traditional breads and cake to the next level.
I purchased this when it first came out and I have given this as a gift to multiple people. Let it inspire your next meal.
Peak Ice Tray for cocktail hour
I use this daily for my tea and anytime I need hot water. It is pretty enough to leave out on your stovetop.
I have surrendered to baking with weighing my ingredients and it has been a game changer. This scale is the one I have and has been so helpful in the kitchen.
I own these and you can’t get more French than these. Perfect for creating a cheese board anytime.
For staying clean while baking and cooking. One of these is essential.
French Butter Dish this was one of the first things I bought in my new place last year. I have a glass thin version that has broken. This is a much sturdy option and looks beautiful on the table.
I love making these on a rainy day or to enjoy with tea time.
The most used item in my kitchen. I love these so much and they are dishwasher safe and perfect for baking/cooking.
One of my favorite gifts to give. My friends make the best olive oil. I keep the original and lemon on hand at all times. It is great for baking and cooking. The lemon I use for salad dressings and marinades. The basil is also delicious!
Nespresso with Frother this is the time to buy a Nespresso if you are in the market. I have owned mine for years and use it in the morning for a quick cup of coffee. Also, I prefer the Virtuoso over the original because they have more flavor options. I have owned both versions.
I just bought this exact bread knife. I typically get a fresh loaf at the local farmers market and this was essential. So, I upgraded my old knife to this one.
This was a game changer when upgrading my kitchen. I have made a lot of cookies in my day. These come out perfect all the same size.
Classic French glasses for everything from juice to wine.
