Holiday Gifts – Staff Picks

The holidays are in full swing and that means everyone is on their last minute lookout for this year’s best gift items! We asked our staff what they would choose as an awesome holiday gift item, and here’s what they came up with…

Angie's PickAngie, Sales Associate:
Bona Vita BV3825B 1-Liter Electric Gooseneck Stainless Kettle
“Energy efficient and extremely fast results make this little beauty a wonderful gift idea! Its addition to our kitchen has made my tea consumption increase and improved the quality of our hand-drip coffee, thanks to the precision of the gooseneck spout.”
#13042  $59.99

Liana's PickLiana, Sales Associate:
Lodge Pre-Seasoned Heavy Duty Reversible Cast Iron Griddle with Moat
“The best gift I bought myself all year! This is my first piece of cast iron cookware. The day I bought it, I brought it home and cooked bacon and pancakes on the flat side for brunch, and then flipped it over and grilled strip steaks for dinner. I love how it sears my meats and chars my vegetables, and allows me to make an entire meal on one surface.”
#9592  $71.99

Nina Rose's PickNina Rose, Buyer:
Emile Henry Flame Top Grilling and Baking Stone 14×18 Figue
“This is, by far, one of my most treasured pieces! Made from a glazed French Burgundy clay, it has the qualities of a traditional pizza stone with the versatility of being able to cook foods that have a high-fat content like cookies or even fish. The fact that this stone can go from oven-to-table makes it really easy to cook and serve on, and I don’t have to worry about thermal shock and cracking if subject to quick temperature changes. And if that’s not enough, it’s simply gorgeous!”
#12917  $59.99

Barb's PickBarb, Sales Associate:
Henckels Four Star Chef’s Paring Knife
“No kitchen is complete without a good paring knife. I was given this Henckels 3″ Paring Knife and fell in love the first time I used it. Now my kitchen is complete with the most functional knife in my drawer.”
#6948  $29.99

Alice's PickAlice, Buyer:
1.5 Liter Soapstone Sauce Pot
“If you know someone that’s a home cook, chances are they don’t have anything like this. From the soapstone material to the copper detailing, they’ll truly be overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of this piece!”
#21227  $99.99

Stephanie's PickStephanie, Sales Associate:
Emile Henry Glazed Clay Tagine, 3.7 Qt, Red
“I’ve been coveting a tagine since before I even joined the team at Fante’s. It’s a great tool for anyone who likes laid-back slow cooking, or African cuisine, especially Moroccan food. The Emile Henry is not only the most versatile, since it can be used on the stovetop as well as in the oven, but is also the largest–more delicious food is always a good thing!”
#2288  $179.99

Mariella's PickMariella, President:
Cousin Elisa’s Cavatelli Maker
“This cavatelli maker is one of my favorite machines for making these wonderful little dumplings. It is definitely the fastest way to make cavatelli – just roll the dough into a skinny log and feed it through. The machine does all the work for you!”
#17247   $39.99

Brian's PickBrian, Barista & Coffee Department:
Kyocera Ceramic Coffee Grinder Model CM-50 CF
“It being ceramic, the grinding mechanism is much harder than traditional ones. Ceramic does not hold flavors, so you can use it for a myriad of coffee types and flavors as well as other things. It is completely adjustable and goes all the way down to a super fine Turkish grind. It is our best grinder and an excellent value.”
#1678   $49.99

Vanessa's PickVanessa, Sales Associate:
Professional Icing Turntable, 12″
“I absolutely can not see myself decorating without this turntable. I’ve tried a few but the Ateco is by far my favorite.”
#8017  $66.99

Mandie's PickMandie, Web Department:
MunchStaches Cookie Stamper & Cutter
“The perfect gift for the mustache-appreciating cookie-lover in your life, or anyone!”
#17790  $9.99

Zach's PickZach, Sales Associate:
Kapoosh Knife Block – Black
“My favorite holiday gift this year to give or receive would be the Kapoosh Knife Block because it’s unique, affordable, and protects your knives! It’s perfect both for the home chef or the professional who “has everything” and is hard to shop for.”
#1024  $59.99

Dennis' PickDennis, Sales Associate:
Kyocera Ceramic Santoku Knife & Slicer Set
“As the perfect combination for slicing and chopping, the Kyocera Santoku Knife and Mandolin Slicer Set makes the perfect gift to complete the well equipped kitchen or the start of one’s kitchen collection!”
#1386  $59.99
