If you don’t cook a lot, it can be hard to know what some of the best cooking gifts are to get the home chef in your life. If that happens to be your dad then this Father’s Day is the perfect time to pick up a cool new kitchen gadget. You might think gifting a set of measuring cups would be nice, but they probably already have at least one of those (and maybe even more). Finding out what cookware is best isn’t always easy. Sure, everything on there looks convenient, fun, and potentially useful, but there’s so much that it can feel impossible to tell what they’d appreciate and what they’d probably regift.
That’s where we come in. As a home cook who often writes about home cooking, I always have my finger on the pulse of what’s hot and what’s not in the kitchen gadget industry. I know just which kitchen products will actually be helpful in the kitchen, and which are simply one-trick ponies that’ll take up your cabinet space.
So, if you’re wondering what to get your cooking-obsessed dad this Father’s Day, look no further than these useful gift ideas, from kitchen gadgets and helpful do-it-all tools to flexible food subscriptions. These impressive cooking gifts will solve a lot of problems—whether that’s non-stop grease splatter or never having a lid that’s the right size. Be sure to get a headstart on your Father’s Day shopping now as June 19 is just around the corner.
