I chose these smart kitchen gift ideas using a variety of methods: Personally testing them, hearing first-hand reviews, and scouring the market for niche tools that each have a unique value proposition.
I use the Professional Vitamix 750, Kizen Digital Meat Thermometer, and Ninja Air Fryer on a weekly basis. Whether I’m experimenting with a new smoothie recipe, panfrying yet another turkey burger, or quickly air frying seasonal veggies, these smart kitchen tools improve my quality of food, and therefore life.
I selected other smart kitchen gift ideas based on excellent customer reviews and opinions of my family and friends who rave about the tools. The Nespresso Vertuo Next and Crock-Pot Slow Cooker fall into this category, and I actually gifted my brother a Crock-Pot last year (it’s a winner). I selected other tools, like the Unique Automatic Pan Stirrer and Revolution Instaglo Touchscreen Toaster, based on novelty and trending popularity. After all, who doesn’t want to open a surprising new gift?
I also chose gifts that fit into a variety of price points. Not everyone wants to buy a $350 toaster, but a $17 egg cooker may not feel right either. This gift guide offers a variety of gift ideas so you can find the right smart kitchen tool for your gift recipient and budget.
