These gifts for home cooks will be sure to delight anyone who prefers to whip up something from scratch than turn to an app for take-out.

While anyone can be a home cook, some are certainly more ambitious than others. For the person on your list who is more likely to use the microwave than the stove, why not opt for an appliance that does all the work for them. With choices ranging from automated meal cookers to smart toaster ovens, there are plenty of gadgets that help even the most novice cooks prepare delicious meals.

However, if the person on your list is looking for a way to improve their kitchen skills and experiment with new dishes, you might want to look for products such as DIY fermentation kits, scissor-inspired food choppers and meat-masticating utensils. These kinds of products make perfect gifts for home cooks because they allow users to enjoy the kind of hands-on cooking experience that smart appliances simply cannot offer.
