2019 Gift Guide — Gifts for Busy Cooks

It’s 5 o’clock on Wednesday and your head is nagging, “What’s for dinner?” Once home from work the kids will be asking the same question. Many folks struggle with weekday supper but, with a bit of prep, a weekly dinner plan, and a couple of smart countertop appliances you can make dinner easier for everyone! If you got a busy parent on your holiday list, read on.

Pressure Cookers (or instant pots) are perfect for cooking ingredients fast and efficiently. They can cut your cooking time in half, so you can spend less time making dinner and more time enjoying it. Cuisinart updates a classic with their 6 Quart Electric Pressure Cooker. The brushed stainless pressure cooker is safe, easy to use, cooks up to 70% faster than conventional methods and cooks healthier, too.

Slow Cookers let you add the ingredients for your main course or a hearty one-pot meal early in the day and have it hot and ready just in time for supper. The new All Clad Deluxe Slow Cooker features a 7 quart cast-aluminum insert that allows you to brown your ingredients on the stove-top.

Multi Cookers offer a variety of functions. These versatile electric cookers feature settings for quick cooking, slow cooking and some even offer sous vide cooking. The Fissler Souspreme Electric Multicooker is a great choice.

Sous Vide Cooking (pronounced sue veed) is the process of vacuum-sealing food in a bag, then cooking it to a very precise temperature in a water bath. It has been a popular cooking technique in high-end restaurants and caterers for years. More recently, home cooks started paying attention to this unique and precise way of cooking. There are a ton of good reasons to cook this way so, don't let the fancy French name, sous vide intimidate you. We prefer the stick-style or immersion sous vide wands instead of the large bulky all-in-one units. The Frieling Sous Vide Stick by Caso attaches securely to any stock pot or container turning it into a precision-controlled water bath.
