We’ve become a foodie culture. Cooking shows enjoy expanding viewership, organic and locally grown produce is on trend, and those who love to cook can never have too many kitchen accessories. To that point, we have some new ideas for unique gifts the next time you want to surprise and delight your favorite culinary.
“Forno”-style pizzas are hotter than ever…and need not be limited to the corner trattoria. This stovetop pizza oven heats up to 600° F and produces crispy 12″ pies like a wood-fired oven. This efficient stovetop convection oven bakes a pizza in as little as six minutes by using concentrated heat conducted from a gas burner. The included pizza stones distribute heat evenly across the dough to eliminate hot spots and absorb excess moisture, resulting in fast cooking times and a delicious, thin crispy crust.
What’s not to love about butter…except when cold, hard butter tears up your fresh artisanal rolls. This spreading knife softens cold butter just by using your own body heat. Unlike an ordinary knife that struggles to slice cleanly through a cold stick, this handheld spreader is made with titanium copper alloy that conducts heat from your hand through the blade. It makes an ideal unique gift for those with limited hand strength, plus this knife also works well with jams, frosting, cream cheese, and other spreadables.
This set of three non-stick pans features a scratchproof ceramic-titanium coating that makes cooking and cleanup easy. In tests by the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute, fried eggs slid off the ungreased pan as if cooked on air, and the impervious surface suffered no damage when scrubbed with an abrasive pad and scratched with a metal fork. The pans also allow you to cook confidently without added fat, a unique gift for dieters. And this set includes clear glass lids—a Hammacher Schlemmer exclusive.
With locally produced and natural foods now widely available, it’s easier, more enjoyable, and more nutritious than ever to produce great meals in your own kitchen. By cooking at home more frequently, you’ll save money, cut calories, and gain the unique gift of satisfaction from producing tasty and good-for-you food for your family.
