There’s nothing better than new kitchen gadgets that make your life easier. Whether you’re a serious home chef trying new things to sous vide or just cooking easy recipes at home, kitchen equipment and gadgets can really bring some peace of mind.
For me, a salad spinner is high on my list this year. My boyfriend and I have a simple salad almost every night, and a salad spinner would be a game changer for our prep.
The problem at our place is space to store everything! Our air fryer takes so much counter space as it is, but it’s absolutely a necessity at this point.
Last Minute Gifts: 11 Best Kitchen Gadget Gifts
We asked the Whimsy Soul team what their favorite kitchen gadget is, and rounded up even more to compile a full list of kitchen gifts!
Starting off with Kara's best kitchen gadget pick, the immersion blender! "I think I use ours almost every day!"
Whimsy Writer Jafei's pick is a milk frother. I think all gift guides should feature the milk frother. It's such a simple and affordable item to have.
And what's perfect to pair with a milk frother? Coffee contraptions like the Aeropress. If you've read my Chamberlain Coffee review, you know I'm a coffee fanatic and we have nearly 10 different contraptions to make it, and the Aeropress might be my favorite! You can buy it and extra filters on Amazon!
Not only are these all over TikTok, but they're apparently worth it. Take Whimsy Writer Meg's word for it: "DASH 👏 RAPID 👏 EGG 👏 COOKER 👏 If you make even half the number of hard-boiled eggs I do, you HAVE to buy this! I normally don’t like single-use kitchen appliances (especially when all you need to boil an egg is water and a pot), but the Dash Rapid Egg Cooker is seriously life-changing (or at least lunch-changing). It’s easy to use, it’s fast, and it only costs $20! Dash, if you’re listening, make me a brand ambassador."
One of the most simple, but life changing kitchen gadgets money can buy - a garlic press! I wouldn't mind upgrading mine for this one from Williams Sonoma!
If you're looking for quick and easy meals, you can't go wrong with food made in a pressure cooker. The Instant Pot is a Black Friday favorite, so definitely snag a deal if you can!
This one is for the dinner party friend. You know who I'm talking about. The one who spends time making the most perfect charcuterie board.
Adding this one to the list for anyone who watches The Great British Bake Off and thinks they can do that too. This one from Food52 is adjustable!
If you're shopping for someone who loves to cook, you really can't go wrong with a cast iron pan or skillet in this case!
