BREVILLE SMART
OVEN PIZZAIOLO >

For a family that is constantly

making pizzas, the Breville
Smart Oven Pizzaiolo was a
must-have for my list. 

 

 

HOT CHOCOLATE >
My daughter’s favorite

holiday treat is hot
chocolate, so this makes for
the perfect stocking stuffer.

 

STAR WARS STORM
TROOPER APRON >

My son Holt is all about
Star Wars these days and
he loves making a mess
with me in the kitchen, so
this apron is a win-win!


 

Tiff-3 Champagne Saber >Yeti white large cooler >Nespresso De'Longhi Lattissima Pro Espresso Machine >

CHAMPAGNE SABER >
I feel like everyone should
have this on their list. A way to
make opening every bottle of
champagne a celebratory one. 



 

 

YETI COOLER >
This large Yeti cooler is
perfect for trekking along
and holding a cold beer on
all of my husband’s
outdoor adventures. 


NESPRESSO DE'LONGHI
LATTISSIMA PRO

newer and more elite

Andrew’s Holiday Gift Picks

Andrew-2-888 Breville Steam ZoneExcalibur Res 10 Dehydrator > Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer Elite C7000 >

BREVILLE STEAM ZONE >
My dream countertop food
machine. I can steam in pots or
bamboo baskets at multiple
power settings, and best of all,
I can fill the insert with broths
and seasonings and make a
killer Asian hot pot for a crowd.
This machine is a game
changer for me.

 

EXCALIBUR RES 10
DEHYDRATOR >

I love the size and strength
of this machine, and no one
ever wants to dehydrate an
apple. I need to dehydrate a
bushel at the height of the
season and this baby does
the job.

KUVINGS WHOLE SLOW
JUICER ELITE C7000 >

Strong, steady power
without ‘heating’ the juice,
good looks, plus, most
importantly, easy cleanup
makes this a must for
anyone looking to up
their health game.


Andrew-3-gg Breville Smart Scoop Ice Cream Compressor >Instant Pot DUO plus 60 >Shun Blue 3-Piece Knife Set >

BREVILLE ICE CREAM
COMPRESSOR >

Simply the best machine for
the money. The temp hold
feature and multiple texture
settings are a dream for the
home cook. And a compressor
means no silly inserts to
freeze!

IINSTANT POT DUO
PLUS 60 >

I love the 80 but it’s a lot
of machine, the DUO 60 is
the most versatile and I
like the size. The
performance of the 60 is
superb and makes the
perfect gift, even for
yourself. If you don’t own
an instant pot, you need to.

SHUN BLUE 3-PIECE
KNIFE SET >

Pound for pound, dollar for
dollar, I love Shun knives. If
you need one tool in the
kitchen it’s a great knife that
you’re comfortable using for
anything and everything. The
Shun collection is made up of
traditional Japanese knives
that have a blue steel core,
essentially carbon steel that I
love for sharpness, encased
between two layers of
stainless steel. You will
love them.

This is the kind of kitchen
commitment that I can get
behind. The quality of the pans
is excellent and the variety is
just enough without taking up
your entire kitchen!

PHILIPS SMOKE-LESS
INFRARED GRILL WITH
BBQ GRIDS WITH
ROTISSERIE >

This is a great way to bring
the flavors of rotisserie into
your kitchen in a
manageable way. It’s great
for pork roasts or chickens
or ducks; you could even
roast large vegetables like
cauliflower!

LE CREUSET SIGNATURE
CAST-IRON OVAL DUTCH
OVEN IN QUINCE >

I love that this is an old
school color and style. It
reminds me of Julia Child.

WILLIAMS SONOMA
WALNUT WOOD SPOONS >

I never run out of a need for a
wooden spoons and this set is
sturdy and reliable.

NORDIC WARE BUNDT
CAKE PAN >

Everybody needs a sturdy
cake pan and this one is
great for any holiday and
any special cake. It’s good
to buy someone a cake
pan that is slightly outside
their comfort zone but
very American at the
same time!

BREVILLE HOT WOK PRO >
My dad had a wok on the
stove most of the time
throughout my childhood
and would make authentic
Chinese dishes as well as
simple weeknight stir-fry
fare. It’s such a great way to
get high heat and have a
wonderfully “seasoned” pan
you will use countless times.

the holidays without
peppermint bark!

 

LE CREUSET HERITAGE

Adam-3 Wüsthof Classic Chef’s Knife >Regalis Black Truffle Rub >All-Clad Stainless-Steel Roasters with Rack >

WÜSTHOF CLASSIC

one knife to rule them all.
This knife has heft and great
balance.

Ali's Holiday Gift Picks

Ali-2  KitchenAid Pro Line Copper Mixer 7Q >Peppermint Bark >The Breville Smart Waffle Pro >

KICHENAID PRO LINE
COPPER MIXER 7Q >

I just designed my kitchen,
and this copper mixer would
stand proudly in my dedicated
baking section! I need a seven
quart because I always double
recipes so that I can surprise
friends with homemade
goodies.

PEPPERMINT BARK >
Williams Sonoma’s
Peppermint Bark is a classic
over the holidays. It’s
perfect as a hostess gift, a
quick dessert, or as my
personal favorite—blended
with vanilla ice cream to
make epic winter
milkshakes!

 

THE BREVILLE SMART
WAFFLE PRO >

Even though we are a busy
family, I love to start our
days together. I often make
eggs in the hole or whole
grain pancakes, but I think
it’s time to up my waffle
game! This waffle maker
looks amazing. Waffles
with salty butter, dripping
in maple syrup?
Yes Please!

Ali-3-gg Schott Zweisel Pure Pinot Noir >Boos Edge Grain Cutting Board >Amish Popcorn Library >

SCHOTT ZWEISEL PURE
PINOT NOIR >

Parties can get a little raucous
in our house! A lot of
wineglasses get broken or
chipped. We need these
wineglasses because I heard
the triton crystal can handle
our lively bunch!

 

BOOS EDGE GRAIN
CUTTING BOARD >

My home is like a
treehouse and walnut was
a huge inspiration in our
remodel. This large,
beautiful wooden board
would be a great chopping
companion on my island!

AMISH POPCORN
LIBRARY >

We love hosting Friday
movie nights in our
home. We always serve
buttery fresh popped
popcorn, so this “library”
would take it to the next
level! And I would score
major points with my son,
Teddy, who is a popcorn
fanatic.
