It’s my favorite time of the year and I’m having a blast sharing my holiday excitement by giving away more of my Favorite Things! Today is extra special, because if you love finding the perfect gift even half as much as I do, this $50 Amazon Gift Card is going to make your day.
Whether you are shopping for yourself, family, or a friend, here are a few great kitchen tools to inspire your fun shopping spree!
3 Piece Stainless Steel Balloon Whisk Set – I’ve been using these whisks for a few years now and they can’t be beat. The price is fantastic and they are surprisingly sturdy. The quality is equal to whisks I’ve bought at 2-3x this price.
Baker’s Half Sheet Pans – This is the pan I reach for more than any other pan in the kitchen. These sheet pans are virtually indestructible. Whether I am slow roasting meats for hours at a time, baking a cake, or quickly broiling at high temperatures, my pans have never warped or bent in any way.
OXO Locking Tongs with Nylon Tips – I have several sets of kitchen tongs and these are the best tongs, hands down. I use them almost every day for turning meats, tossing pasta and salad, serving foods, and countless other uses.
Stainless Steel Measuring Cups and Spoons – After years of using plastic scoops that broke when scooping peanut butter or melted in the dishwasher, I’m partial to stainless steel measuring spoons and cups. I have at least 3 different sets of cups and 4-5 sets of spoons in my kitchen right now. I’m a fan of not having to stop and wash something midway through a baking or cooking project. So, even if you already have a great set, you probably need another one.
ChefAlarm by ThermoWorks – I’ve been hunting for a new meat thermometer for over a year now and this one has GREAT reviews! (Unfortunately, most of the other thermometers I’ve looked at do not have positive reviews.) I ordered this thermometer last week and I’m calling it an early Christmas present. I can hardly wait to make the Southwestern Crusted Roast Beef again with this awesome thermometer!
Get It Right (GIR) Ultimate Spatula – If you’d told me a few years ago that I’d be a fan of a specific brand of spatula and that I would be telling everyone about it, I would have laughed. So, when I heard that this spatula was all that and then some, I decided it was worth a try. I can’t recommend this spatula highly enough. It’s almost indestructible, high heat resistant, super easy to clean, and just the right mixture of flexible and strong.
Norpro 13 Inch Splatter Screen Strainer – This splatter guard was a game-changer for me when I bought it a couple years ago. The first time I fried chicken it was a huge mess. Grease splattered all over the stove, the counters, and the wall. Seriously, I should not have been allowed to do that. This simple splatter screen prevents 90% of the mess and I happily make my family’s favorite Italian Pan Fried Chicken at least twice a month now.
Ello 14-oz Insulated Glass Tumbler– Because no list is complete without the perfect coffeecup, this one is on the list. I already own this one, but the insulated clear tumbler is so gorgeous, it’s on my Christmas wish list for this year! (It should fit perfectly in my stocking, right?)
