Give me an afternoon in a kitchen store and I am a very happy girl indeed. It was hard to narrow my favorite things for the kitchen down to a top ten list for this Christmas gift idea listing, but I did it for ya!
1. Zester| 2. Ice Cream Maker | 3. Silpat Liner
4. Measuring Cups or Spoons | 5. Spatula Set | 6. French Oven
7. Iron Skillet | 8. Stand Mixer | 9. Sheet Pans | 10. Cookie Scoops
What would be on your top ten list for gift ideas for the kitchen? I’d love to know!
Silpats are a great idea ~ they’re one of those things I looked at forever & thought “silly, they can’t be great enough to cost $20″…..wrong! On my wish list this year though is a 7qt crock pot, because my 5qt is simply NOT big enough! 🙂
You are so right, Julie! Those Silpats are great for so many things, aren’t they? Hope you get your new slow cooker. Those things are life savers!
Totally agree with this list! Lots of great products and ideas. I did make the mistake of clicking on the measuring spoon set with the sweet birds…so beautiful…just not going to happen for $178, but a girl can dream, right?
All I’m missing from this list is a French oven! Im also dying to get a sous vide circulator, a slow cooker and a dehydrator 🙂
I want to buy my first cast iron skillet, what would be a good size to start with?
Depending on the number of people you are planning to cook for, as well as the dishes you plan to cook, I would say either an 8 or 10 1/4 inch. I personally have a couple of each of these sizes as well as larger. My favorite size to use though is my 10 1/4 inch cast iron. It is a great general purpose size and about 2 inches deep.
I’m so excited for you and can’t wait to hear what all you cook up in your new skillet. Properly cared for, they last for many generations!
