best kitchen timer

Our Favorite Kitchen Timer

The Kirot Magnetic Kitchen Timer is not the perfect kitchen timer, but it’s as close as we have found. We like the size, the ease-of-use and the alarm. Our favorite feature is the red band that gets visually smaller as time goes by, allowing the chef to see at a glance roughly how much time is left. It’s magnetic too, but keep in mind magnets do not stick to stainless steel so you may need to find a better spot. Great value. Recommended favorite. Find it at Amazon…

best cast iron pot

The Perfect Cooking Pot

Looking for the perfect pot, an heirloom that will be remembered when you pass it down to a loved one? Here it is. The Le Creuset Signature Enameled Cast-Iron 7-1/4-Quart Round French (Dutch) Oven is unmatched for its versatility to go from oven to range, to cook fast, to clean easily and to last a lifetime with proper care. If you don’t have the 7 1/4 quart we believe it is the perfect size. A gorgeous cast-iron enameled Le Creuset would make a great gift for the chef in your life. Find it at Amazon…

best meat thermometer

Best Meat Thermometer

You could spend much more on a meat thermometer, but the Lavatools PT12 Javelin Digital Instant Read Meat Thermometer is hard to beat. It intuitively turns on when you open it (so there are no buttons to push or wear out), it’s got big 1.4″ easy-to-read numbers, the probe is a bit longer than most and angles so you can move it away from the heat if you need to. It even has an integrated magnet to attach it where you want it. Use it for meat, fryers, bread, candy, coffee, and home-brews too. It comes in 6 colors including Chefmodo’s favorite, Chipotle Red. Lifetime warranty. Find it at Amazon…

Truffle honey gift for cook

Outstanding Truffle Honey

A delicious gift for the cook! Drizzle tasty Truffle Hunter Truffle Honey on fruit, cheese, salad, glaze on chicken and more. This has a stronger truffle taste than most – which is what we love about it. Made from 100% acacia honey (known for its sweetness and therapeutic qualities) and white truffles. Makes a great gift, wooden dipper included, the packaging is beautiful and the product is “out standing in the field”. Find it at Amazon…

The Gift of Good Fortune

Looking for the perfect gift for the chef in your life? The Silver Fortune Cookie is thoughtful, beautiful and hinged so you can insert your own custom message. This is a heavy silver-colored metal paperweight, a functioning box and a wish to the recipient of lasting good fortune. Comes in a velvet pouch inside a gift box. Just add your note! Find it at Amazon…

best small mixer

Our Favorite Small Mixer

If you’re a chef with a kitchen that is slightly tight on space The Kitchen Aid Artisan Mini Mixer is for you. It has the same power as the larger Classic mixer, uses the same attachments too, but it’s 20% smaller and 25% lighter. The smaller size means you can leave it on the counter or more easily move it around. Bowl size is 3.5 quarts versus 4.5 quarts. Comes with no-handle stainless steel bowl, whisk attachment, paddle attachment and dough hook. We own the larger classic and love it. Find it at Amazon…
