Looking for some ideas for what to get the cooks on your list for Christmas? Here are a few favorite things from our kitchen as well as a few things that are on Christmas list.
|Krups Electric Kettle - I learned the joys of an electric kettle while vacationing in northern England over New Years. The boiler went out in our rented house & the only hot water we had for anything including bathing came from our electric kettle. Believe me we can to appreciate how fast this kettle bring water to a boil! This works so much faster than a kettle on a stove.|
|Kyocera Wide Julienne Slicer - We got one of these for Christmas last year & absolutely love it. We do have a full on mandolin but find this so much easier to use & there is less to clean-up. It comes in so handy for those summer coleslaws.|
|Salt & Pepper Mill Ball Set - This is on my wish list this year. We have salt & pepper grinders but I really wanted a ones that could be used with just one hand. So often I'm trying to season a piece of raw meat & have to keep running back & forth to the sink to wash my hands. With these I can have one hand to flip the meat & another to grind the seasoning.|
|Crockpot 6-Quart Round Slow Cooker, White - I never thought I would use a slow cooker as much as we do. It's such a lifesaver on busy days.|
|Le Creuset Round French Oven - This is the most expensive item on this list but it is our go to pot. It's perfect for soups & stews on the stove but you can also use it to braise or bake in the oven.|
|Silpat Nonstick Silicone Baking Mat - Forget greasing your pans when you've got these pads! I use mine to move my bread from the counter to the baking stone since it can stand the heat. They also make clean up easier.|
Next Saturday I'll tell you which cookbooks are on our wish lists.
