100 Presents for Foodies

Efficient Tools From Oscillating Slicers to Gravity-Activated Grinders

— November 27, 2012 — Eco
Foodies are the connoisseurs of good ingredients, good food and good company, earning them a reputation of being especially particular of their kitchen tools and consequently, making shopping for presents for foodies equally difficult.

These hospitable hosts love to share their food with friends and good company, but keeping guests entertained while cooking up a feast can also be a tad distracting for a few. A wide variety of cute and efficient cooking tools make great presents for foodies, including multifunctional mixing bowls, pyramid meal heaters to keep food warm and compartmental frying pans so different foods can cook simultaneously without touching. The friendly hosts will appreciate these lovely gifts and may even invite you back for a meal when they plan on testing out the new tool.
