5 Kitchen Tools for Healthy Holiday Cooking & Gifting

Have a foodie in your life? A friend who enjoys cooking or a loved one looking to save time in the kitchen?

Forget the generic ties and socks and give them a gift they’ll actually use. Gifting kitchen tools is an awesome way to spread the joy of health and healing during the holiday season. Whether it’s a chef’s knife for efficient food prep or an Instant Pot for quick weeknight meals, kitchen tools ignite a passion for healthy cooking.

But let’s be clear about one thing: There are a lot of unnecessary gadgets out there. And you were probably bombarded with all types of things you HAD to buy on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday.

Feeling a little overwhelmed by all the options? I’ve got you covered with my expert list of pro-chef tools for beginners and advanced home cooks alike. These gifts focus on time savings and healthy cooking for the New Year–and beyond. (Don’t forget to add these to your wish list, too!)

Gifts Ideas for Healthy Cooking


Wusthof Classic Chef’s Knife: Featuring a durable high-carbon steel blade, this essential kitchen tool will simplify prepping and chopping. Maintain a sharp edge by purchasing it along with Wusthof’s Classic Honing Steel.

Instant Pot: This multi-use pot makes it easy and convenient to pressure cook, slow cook, brown, and sauté. You can also make rice, porridge, and yogurt. Seriously, this gift is a slam-dunk!

Veggetti Pro Table-Top Spiralizer: If you’re searching for a fun Secret Santa gift, go for the table-top spiralizer. Perfect for turning your favorite veggies into satisfying noodle dishes, this gadget breaths new life into gluten-free and low-carb diets.

Lodge Cast Iron Pan: No kitchen is complete without a cast iron skillet. From stovetop to oven, you can sear, sauté, broil, and more. If you have a BBQ master in the family, go for the indoor grill skillet for the winter season. The best part? Cast iron cookware is free from non-stick coatings that can leach into your food.

Salad Spinner: This is one gadget that can get anyone to eat more greens! Simply wash greens and take them for a spin. This efficient drying system helps you prep lots of greens at once while avoiding a soggy salad mess. If you’re limited on space, search for a collapsible salad spinner.
