I thought I would take the time out to help those shopping for somebody that likes to cook or bake. I know anyone of these gifts under my tree would definitely get my motor running.
KitchenAid Professional 6-Qt Stand Mixer
Oh yeah, this is one thing I could not live without. My KitchenAid mixer! For anyone that loves to bake or cook, this will come in handy almost all of the time. Available in several assorted colors, and just about every attachment you can think of to make kitchen life easier!
All-Clad Stainless 13-inch French Skillet
I have 2 All Clad Stainless steel pans. I love these things. Oh sure, you have to clean them well to keep them looking nice, (I use Bar Keeper’s Friend and it works fantastic!), and yes, you’re going to pay a pretty penny for All Clad. But! Consider this: You will be handing these down to your kids. They will last forever properly taken care of, and they’re like a dream to cook with. These pans are an investment, and you will not need to go buy these pans yearly. Worth the cash in my opinion.
KitchenAid – 13-Cup Food Processor
Another kitchen item, I could not live without. It’s a must have in my kitchen! I use it to slice, dice, shred, chop and I make my pie crust in mine. It makes life easier. I use mine ALL the time. (Although I don’t have the big one. I bought my food processor many moons ago, and it still keeps going). That’s the nice thing about kitchenAid products. They LAST! Available in many assorted colors to match your decor!
5.5-Quart Cast Iron Dutch Oven
Another must have in my kitchen. I use this constantly! I use my Dutch oven so much, that the porcelain inside mine is beginning to fade, although I expect it to still be useable for a very long time. You don’t have to break the piggy bank to buy this either, Walmart has the above pictured one, for $39.90! Here’s a link for those interested. Available in Red, Cobalt & Green.
Half-Size 18-Gauge Aluminum Sheet Pan – 13 X 18 (NSF)
Another must have in my kitchen. Forget the Air bake pans, these bake the best cookies! On sale right now at Gordon’s Food Service for $5.99.
Henckels Premio 14-pc. Metal Cap Knife Set
Another must have. A quality knife set. Knives are an investment. Proper care and maintenance, and they’ll be around forever. With many, many sets to choose from, this is just one example. But be good to yourself or someone else, and invest in a superior knife set. You’ll be glad you did!
