Great Gifts for the Chef Under $20

I’m done! My shopping that is!

I found the rest of the items on my list all at Kitchen Stuff Plus this weekend. My online shopping was almost too easy and a quick pick up was a dream! Moms you know what a blessing shopping pick ups are when you have kids with curious minds and wandering hands.

Kitchen Stuff Plus is my go-to destination for Christmas and now with click & collect at tons of locations it’s even easier! This year I made my top gift picks for the chef in your life. If you’re a food prepper (newbie or seasoned) you’re going to love these items (ALL UNDER $20).

Here are just some of my favourite finds! Then head over to Kitchen Stuff Plus and get your shopping done!

Oil Sprayer

A must-have for heavy pourers. Less mess  and controlled calories too! I’ll be adding EVOO to one and avocado oil to the other (yes I bought two). Great for salads, sautéing, grilling and air frying!

Silicone Mat

This silicone baking sheet is great for rolling or kneading dough and goes directly from the freezer to the oven. It’s perfect for non-stick, low-fat baking!

  • Food grade silicone 
  • Heat resistant to 450°F
  • Easy to clean and folds or rolls up for easy storage

Loaf Pan

If you’ve been hanging out with me lately, you know of my recent obsession with homemade loaves and exactly why I needed this gem in my life. Makes perfect bread, the non-stick silicone interior is reinforced with a steel structure to make sure your bread keeps it shape and bakes evenly.

Digital Meat Thermometer

Smart, safe & easy! This will be my new meal prep buddy. As preppers, we want to make our sure our meals stay tasty over a few days. The best way to do that is too cook the meat enough but not overdone. I look forward to replacing my old thermometer with this beauty. 

  • 13 pre-programmed meat doneness settings
  • Can be left in the oven while cooking
  • Notifies you when your meat reaches programmed temperature 

Waffle Maker

Whether it’s a Sunday morning craving or food prep Sunday, this tool is the perfect addition to your kitchen! It’s compact and easy to clean. Did you know you can freeze waffles? That’s right! Whip up a batch of Apple Cinnamon Walnut waffles from my book “The Visual Guide to Easy Meal Prep”, store in an air-tight container and simply pop in the toaster to them heat up. Talk about easy & healthy breakfast!

I can’t wait to see what you order!
