The holidays are right around the corner and I always struggle finding the right gift to give my foodie friends and aspiring chefs. Not this year! I've come up with 12 fantastic gifts that will make your time in the kitchen easier.

This Crock-Pot Smart Slow Cooker lets you fix it and forget it. All you need is your smart phone to check on dinner when you're not home. Adjust the temperature, the cooking time or switch the slow cooker to warm mode. You can even turn it off using your smart phone. How cool is that?


This Electric Air Fryer allows you to enjoy your favorite fried foods and snacks without the added calories from dunking the food in oil. What a great invention! Sold!


Have you heard of the Wonderbag Non-Electric Portable Slow Cooker? It's basically a portable slow cooker. No plugs. No electricity required. You simply bring your food to a boil on the stove let it simmer and then put the pot with the lid into the Wonderbag, close it tightly and it will slow cook to perfection for up to 12 hours. That's perfect for the holidays when you've been asked to bring a dish for dinner.

Cooking pasta, potatoes and vegetables just got a whole lot easier and safer with this 5-quart Pasta Pot . It's got a built-in strainer and a lock lid so you don't need a colander when it's time to drain. The price is fantastic!

If you cook with fresh herbs frequently then you'll want this Herb Stripper. It's perfect for woody stems like rosemary, thyme and tarragon. Just pull the herb through the hole to remove the herbs from the stem. It doesn't get much easier than that!


How many times have you boiled water only to have it spill onto your stove top creating a mess? This Spill Stopper is the perfect splatter guard and you never have to worry about pots boiling over again.


This is a must-have wine accessory. No more watered down white wine, champagne or Prosecco from melted ice cubes. These Iceless Wine Chillers are made from stainless steel and will keep your glass chilled without diluting your favorite beverage.

Keep your fingers intact and use this Mini Food Processor to chop ingredients for your recipes. It handles small jobs beautifully and is easy to clean. I love that it is small and compact and is easy to store when not in use.


Have you ever tried to make a five layer cake only to ruin it while you're trying to slice the layers. The Layer Cake Slicer Kit is the solution and must have gift for all the bakers on your list.

These Pizza Scissors are great for cutting and serving pizza and are so easy even the kids can use them. So functional and affordable!

Have you tried cutting corn off the cob only to have it go in every direction. This Corn Peeler is the answer. This peeler removes multiple rows of corn right from the corncob in a quick and easy motion.

Have you tried any of my salt block cooking recipes? It transforms the taste of anything you cook or serve on it. A Salt Block makes a really unique gift. I got one last summer and I'm still enjoying it. Pick one up for the foodie in your life and check out these great recipes.

I hope you have luck finding the right gift for the foodie in your life. If you're anything like me you regularly check out the deals Amazon promotes daily as the holiday season inches closer.
