What better way to get what you want for Christmas than by sharing a gift guide of all the things you’ve been day-dreaming of for your kitchen.
There’s something romantic about a man that can buy you an Instant Pot for your 37th birthday and then say, “Choose anything you want and I’ll cook it for you.” I believe this is the best possible 2-for-1 deal. I was gifted an Instant Pot that I have been wanting for a long time to own AND my husband, Lenny (the Gluten Free Dad) made me an absolutely delicious chicken enchilada chili in under 45 minutes. Instant Pot for the win!
Even though small kitchen appliances, baking dishes and gadgets don’t typically get the biggest shriek of excitement while unwrapping gifts… I can assure you that if you share this beautifully hand-curated kitchen gift guide with your husband, fiancé, family or really close friend that loves to buy you gifts ? , you are guaranteed to have a wonderful Christmas.
Plus, you’ll be getting the Clean Cuisine approved, non-toxic version which ensures you’re getting the most out of making delicious clean winter recipes.
Just be thankful we didn’t include a vacuum. My dad most definitely would have added a vacuum ?.
GIFT GUIDE: 14 Best Gifts for the Kitchen
1. Norpro 12 Inch x16 Inch Stainless Steel Cookie Sheet
We personally think that for the money, Norpro Stainless Steel Cookie Sheet is the best option (typically under $20!).
We always cover our stainless steel cookie sheet with parchment though because it keeps the cookies from sticking. Plus, using parchment paper helps prevent burning and it most definitely helps with clean up!
You can see the cookie sheet here.
2. Thrive Market Membership
Christmas is coming and a 1-year membership could save you a lot of money when buying organic ingredients… and wine. Yes, they have wine too.
You will also get a $20 shopping credit when you purchase a Thrive Market Membership.
They offer 1 month, 3 month and 12 month memberships.
You can check out Thrive Market here.
3. Luvele Yogurt Maker
You can find it here.
4. The Pampered Chef Garlic Press
There’s not one single better garlic press in the world than my trusty garlic press from Pampered Chef. I love learning about garlic and the different health benefits and the ways to use garlic in recipes.
Cleaning this thing is a breeze. That little brush you see — that pushes the extra garlic out of the press and the end of the brush has a scaper tool so you can scrape out the rest of it.
You can find it here.
5. Old Stone Oven Rectangular Pizza Stone
We absolutely love this pizza stone.
Unlike ceramic cookware that can be used for any type of cooking, unglazed Stoneware is used mostly for baking.
Yes, unglazed… and the reason we want to make sure you note this because other stones may look prettier with their glazes, just keep it mind that the glaze typically includes lead. So, truthfully, it is best to choose raw, unglazed stoneware.
You can see the stone here.
6. Xtrema- Premium 100% Ceramic Cookware Traditions Skillet W/Lid | Organic, Green, All Natural, Microwave Safe, Dishwasher Safe- 7-Inch
When it comes to healthy cookware, lead-free ceramic is the way to go. And…when it comes to ceramic cookware and bakeware, Xtrema by Ceramcor is the brand to trust. From the research we have done here at Clean Cuisine, Xtrema Cookware is truly the healthiest, greenest, and most beautiful cookware out there.
You can find this skillet here.
7. Ninja Professional Countertop Blender
When Aimee’s husband (the Gluten Free Dad) was in college, he worked as a smoothie shop. This pretty much means he knows it all when it comes to smoothie-making and this Ninja that comes with a 72oz glass pitcher and 2 smoothie cups are the best $100 you can spend.
Without hesitation, this 1100watt (Yes, this is NOT the professional one. Save your money because honestly, the 1100 watt delivers all the power you need!) Ninja has the power to handle any blending in the kitchen.
You can see it here.
8. Le Creuset Signature Enameled Cast-Iron 5-1/2-Quart Round French (Dutch) Oven in Cherry Red
With this dutch over, you can start your main dishes on the stove top and then slide it into the oven to finish. It also makes the best chili’s and now I’m hungry.
This is definitely a signature item for a well-used kitchen.
Yes, they are expensive. If you’re looking for a dutch oven for under $50, go with a Lodge brand.
You can find the cherry red dutch oven here.
9. Instant Pot Duo 60 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Steamer, Saute, Yogurt Maker, and Warmer, 6-QT, Stainless Steel/Black
You can get it here.
10. House Again Tea Ball Infuser & Cooking Infuser
You can find it here.
11. Cuisinart Smart Stick
Here at Clean Cuisine we make a lot of soups and with the Cuisinart Smart Stick, you don’t have to dump your soup into a blender and then back again.
For less than $35, the Smart Stick will make our clean cuisine soups much easier to make at home.
You can see it here.
12. Instant Vortex Plus 7-in-1 Air Fryer, Toaster Oven, and Rotisserie Oven, 10 Quart
There are 7 Programs: Air Fry, Rotisserie, Roast, Broil, Bake, Reheat, and Dehydrate.
You can get your own right here.
13. Pyrex Simply Store Glass Storage Starter Set
With all of the amazing recipes on our site, sometimes there are leftovers.
Of course, not in our house because our son is 12 and 5’9″ and my husband lifts daily and plays on two soccer teams.
However, if you’re going to have leftovers, use glass and bpa-free like our favorites from Pyrex.
You can find this set here.
If you are into clean eating and you don’t own one already, having a rice cooker can really make your life a whole lot easier. Not only do rice cookers prepare absolutely perfect rice every single time, they also cook every other whole grain to perfection (including quinoa, amaranth, millet, etc.)
With a lead-free and chemical-free clay pot insert, VitaClay is definitely our favorite brand of rice cooker.
You can find the rice cooker here.
