Holidays are rapidly approaching, our calendars are filling up (unlike the advent calendar), so it’s high time we started preparing for the gifts season with due diligence and respect. Of course, there will always be plenty of room for Christmas balls, beads, mini Santas and reindeer noses, but sometimes you need a real deal offer for someone special. Something that will make the other person go ‘wow!’ in surprise. Even if that very person is you. Well, we’ve got you covered.
Cooking with herbs is great but cooking with your own herbs is ultimate. Many times we’ve heard about pots and seeds on a windowsill, but our best green intentions unfortunately seldom come true. But with an in-home garden system (like AeroGarden for instance) you can easily grow fresh herbs all year round. No soil, no mess, automated light and occasional reminders for water and nutrients. Photosynthesize to the max!
We all love tea and coffee, that’s for sure, but some of us are real fanatics that know different blends need different brewing temperature. With precise electric kettles, you can brew as accurate as you want. These kitchen appliances are very flexible and give access to a wide range of temperatures: from as low as 50C / 120F to a full rock-n-rolling boil. Most kettles are adjustable in 5-degree increments. Which is great even if you don’t know why would you need that.
Some people love holidays libations. This is accepted and appreciated by many cocktails and spirits lovers. We don’t nobody either. Moreover, we know how to extend your imbibing experience. Trust us here, there cannot be anything more spectacular (a little exaggeration) than a wooden bar cart smoothly emerging from the corner. Full of bottles, cocktail equipment, mixed drinks on the upper deck and ice bucket, glasses, and other useful stuff down below.
If you are really in the mood to splurge then you need a portable pizza oven. Whoa, yes? Indeed, nobody ever expects you to present them with a hilarious kitchenware. Nobody, even you yourself. That will be a great gift for a backyard pizza enthusiast. The oven can reach as high as 500C / 900F. This means authentic wood-fired Neapolitan pizza in just 1 minute. Don’t like pizza? Feel more like a steak? No problemo. Just pop a protein of your choice inside and keep an eye on it.
Maybe you’re into some Oriental aesthetics with all that glossy china, soy sauce fermentation and sushi. Then you badly need a Japanese clay pot cooker. Not only will it help you to stand out as a rice professional, but it also works well with one-pots: stews, soups, noodles, and rice dishes. It also looks very smart.
