Holiday Gifting: Best Christmas gifts for home cooks

See also

I've been a busy little bee in the kitchen, testing all kinds of cool cooking products for your gifting pleasure! As usual, Cuisinart tops my list of holiday gifting ideas for all your favorite home chefs.

At the top of the home product chain, Cuisinart never fails to create the most gorgeous and functional products you can give. Between the Cuisinart Combo Steam & Convection Oven and the Cuisinart Griddler Deluxe, there's no need for a stove, oven, bread machine, Panini maker, pancake griddle or ribbed grill.

These two products cover everything you need besides a mixer, microwave and refrigerator! This weekend I used both of them to do a variety of cooking, never turning on the stove once. Though I had to lower the oven temperature of the recipe 25 degrees and take five minutes off the cook time of the reindeer cupcakes I was making, I saw this as a positive; less energy and less time is always a good thing!

In the slide show, you will find the two products that I've researched/tested/sampled and approved. You can find the products on the links included in each photo slide. Make Holiday Gifting easy this year; Go with Cuisinart!
