1. Fort Hamilton's Barrel Aged Maple Syrup
Fort Hamilton's barrel-aged maple syrup is kicking off this year's kitchen holiday gift guide. Their organic maple syrup is aged in bourbon barrels, giving it 'notes of salted caramel, cocoa & vanilla with a kiss of smoke!'
Also, while visiting Fort Hamilton's website, check out their various bourbons and gins. They are also amazing!
2. Modern Mixology Cocktail Shaker Set
Take your cocktail game up a notch with a bartending set. This particular bartending set is upscale and compliments any counter!
3. Buydeem Retro Electric Kettle
An electric kettle is a must for the tea lover in your life. The retro style of this buydeem is adorable and looks great on any kitchen counter. Available in three colors, this 1.7-liter electric kettle includes an auto shut-off for safety.
Pair this electric kettle with an infuser teacup. The design is attractive while being functional. It also makes for a well-rounded gift.
4. Zahara Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Every home cook knows high-quality olive oil is a must. Zahara extra virgin olive oil is made at a Sicilian family-owned olive oil mill. The olives are hand pressed within hours of being picked.
Zahara's olive oil is pure; no artificial flavors, no additives, and no preservatives. You can taste the difference!
5. Enamel Cast Iron Dutch Oven
Enameled cast iron is desired for its even heat distribution. Daily, I love cast iron to make green chile or no-knead bread in. I have used several different brands and have not noticed a big difference from brand to brand.
Amazon Basics enamel cast iron is available in many sizes and colors. They are making it easy to find the perfect gift this holiday season.
6. KitchenAid 5Q Mixer
A KitchenAid mixer is always in season! Below is a 5qt mixer, which is a perfect size. I also love that this KitchenAid is a tilt head, which is nice when needing to add ingredients or scrape the sides of the bowl.
7. Breville Espresso Maker
A good espresso maker is expensive; there is no question. However, this Breville model is on the lower price point while having a frothier that works!
We have had this model since 2018, and it paid for itself in six weeks. I love that the grinder is included, a frothier that works, and the hot water feature for when I want a cup of tea.
8. Zelancio Reversible Wooden Pastry Board
Home chefs who love pastry making would be happy to receive this wooden board. The design makes it easy to knead the dough while keeping your counters clean.
This particular wooden pastry board also has an engraved rule and pie template on one side, making measurements easy. While I don't have one of my own, it is on my list as a Christmas gift for myself.
9. Sustainable Black Walnut Wood Cutting Board
A nice cutting board is a kitchen must-have. This cutting board is made in the USA from sustainable black walnut. The design includes a juice grove, which is oh-so-helpful when cutting tomatoes.
All that aside, this American black walnut cutting board is beautiful. It looks great on any countertop and can double as a serving board.
10. Caraway Cook Wear
Caraway uses a natural process to create non-stick cookware requiring less oil or butter. Their products are free of PTFE, PFOA, PFAS, lead, cadmium, and other toxic elements.
Caraway is also stylish and functional and stores neatly with a magnetic rack. I love the modern colors of pots and pans that Caraway offers.
11. Caraway Baking Set
Caraway uses a natural process to create non-stick bakeware. All their products are free of PTFE, PFOA, PFAS, lead, cadmium, and other toxic elements. Caraway baking products can withstand temperatures up to 550ºF. My favorite feature is the storage organizers that help keep cabinets neat and tidy.
You can purchase the baking sets in either a set of five or eleven pieces. Caraway baking is nontoxic ceramic surfaces
12. Ooni Koda Pizza Oven
Ready for outdoor wood-fired pizza? Ooni Koda 16 Gas Pizza Oven is ready to go right out of the box. All you have to do is unfold the legs and connect the oven to the gas. The temperature reaches as high as 950F, and your pizza can be ready in as little as 60 seconds. Be sure to add the accessories to make this the perfect gift.
While getting ready for a pizza party, start with this homemade pizza dough recipe.
13. SMIRLY Bamboo Cheese Board and Knife Set
For the home chef that likes to entertain a nice cheese board is a must-have for the home chef who likes to entertain. This model has it all; pull-out boards, five bowls, a full cutlery set, a wine opener, and two chalkboards to label unique ingredients. My favorite part is how it neatly stores into a simple rectangle that is easy to store.
14. NutriChef Sourdough Bread Making Kit
Is your home cook ready to get into sourdough breadmaking? Sourdough is so much easier to make than you might think. To get started, I recommend buying this starter sourdough bread-making kit. It has everything needed to get started. Well, almost everything. You will need some flour.
