Around this time of year, I start to get asked about my top gift picks for a well-equipped kitchen. And I must say, there are very few things that I love more than kitchen tools, so it’s a challenge for me to narrow down the list of must-haves!
Nonetheless, here are some of my favorite kitchen related gifts at various price points so you can select just the right option for the person on your list!

A full set of All Clad Cookware
All-Clad 501853 Gourmet Stainless Steel 10-Piece Cookware Set, Silver
This is no run-of-the-mill gift, but if you’ve been extra good this year, here’s what you ask for! All Clad Cookware is my favorite brand; it’s virtually indestructible and it’s a little bit of luxury in your everyday life.
THE BIG GIFT
A starter set of All Clad Cookware
All-Clad 401599 Stainless Steel Tri-Ply Bonded Dishwasher Safe Cookware Set, 5-Piece, Silver
You may notice a theme here; I’m a big fan of this top-notch stainless steel cookware. No more food stuck to sub-par pans. This is a more accessible price point with just 3 key pieces.
Wusthof Classic Knives Cutlery Set with Storage Block, 12 Piece
This excellent German set of knives will serve you for years and years and will make you actually look forward to chopping vegetables! Keep them sharp!
Cuisinart Food Processor
Cuisinart DLC-2009CHB Prep 9 9-Cup Food Processor, Brushed Stainless
I still can’t believe I didn’t have a food processor until I got one as a wedding gift! A go-to gadget for so many recipes, this Cuisinart one is great.
Epicurean Cutting Board
Epicurean Kitchen Series 15 by 11-Inch Kitchen Cutting Board, Natural
Tie one of these up with a gorgeous bow and you’ll make your hostess’ night! This one is a good mid-size – they come smaller and larger than this; I have several that I use for different purposes.
Unves Stainless Steel Manual Juicer Lemon Squeezer with Bowl, Silver
Think of this as a fresh-squeezed juice kit! Drape a pretty kitchen towel inside a basket, fill it with oranges, lemons and/or limes, top off with the juicer, and add a big bow. Voila!
Nesting mixing bowls
KitchenAid Professional Series Red Mixing Bowls, Set of 3
I love that these are red. Add a box of gourmet pancake or muffin mix and a whisk and you have a breakfast kit!
Tongs with nonstick tips
OXO Good Grips 9-Inch Locking Tongs with Nylon Heads
You’ll be amazed by how many uses you find for these – I find that I use mine almost daily.
High Quality Garlic Press
OXO SteeL Garlic Press, Stainless
This makes short work of mincing garlic like a good quality press, and this one is my favorite.
