Kitchen Gift Ideas 2022

Consistently putting out delicious and healthy food takes a bit of planning, time, and practice. Sometimes it also takes the right kitchen gadget.

So if you’re looking for that perfect gift for someone on your gift list (or maybe your own wish list?), here are my top kitchen gift ideas for 2022.

The Best Kitchen Gift Ideas for 2022 – Your Gift List and Wish List

I decided to focus this year on items that have made my life much easier in the kitchen. There’s also a wide price range here to satisfy everyone’s gift-giving needs.

The Instant Pot

This one shouldn’t surprise any of my loyal readers and video watchers. I love my Instant Pot. I use it all the time. Nearly every day.

I have also written two Instant Pot Authorized Cookbooks that you can check out here if you’d like. I make everything from Instant Pot Pinto Beans to Red Beans and Rice to Vegetable Broth in it. It’s a game-changer and a huge time saver. The Instant Pot makes my top Kitchen Gift Ideas every year!

The Multo® by CookingPal®

Multo by CookingPal for kitchen gift ideas

The CookingPal® Multo® is a fabulous all in one intelligent cooking machine. And, no, that statement does not over-exaggerate. This machine can do almost anything you need done in the kitchen.

It blends and chops and grinds and whips. But it also cooks! It steams and sautees and simmers. It can cook multiple things at the same time with its patented stackable cooking method. Watch me cook cheesey ham and broccoli mac and cheese here! You’ll be amazed.

The control tablet is one of my favorite features of the Multo®. It is loaded with tons of amazing recipes and they can be filtered by ingredient or diet type. This is particularly helpful for those following specific diets like vegan or keto. And they add new recipes all the time! (The tablet comes at no extra cost and there’s no subscription cost for the recipes.)

Look through all of the amazing features of the CookingPal® Multo® here to see if it’s the right kitchen gift idea for someone on your list! There’s no doubt it has made my clean eating cooking much easier! And be sure to use my coupon code “TheSpicyApron” at checkout to get $80 off!

P.S. Just in time for the holidays, CookingPal® is offering a FREE additional mixing/cooking bowl for a limited time! Trust me when I say that’s a really awesome deal!

Glasslock Storage Containers

There’s no question that my Glasslock storage containers get the most use in my kitchen. I use them multiple times a day! Whether it’s to store my freshly made Instant Pot Chickpeas or to marinade shrimp for some healthy vegan shrimp pasta, they get tons of use.

I love them because they are airtight and seal incredibly well. They are dishwasher safe and the containers (not the lids) are oven safe. I also like that they are glass. Always clear and free from residue that can build up on plastic storage containers.

I enjoy the versatility of the multi size set. They stack well within each other of the same shape and don’t take up a lot of room. And the various sizes are great for everything from the smallest foods (extra chopped onion) to a full casserole meal. There’s nothing about these that I don’t like! These Glasslock containers are one of my favorite kitchen gift ideas for 2022.

Sous Vide Circulator

If the chef on your list cherishes a perfectly done steak or tender and juicy chicken cooked to perfection, then consider a sous vide circulator.

In a nutshell, sous vide cooking is a process in which you vacuum seal foods and place them in a water bath that is the exact desired temperature for the food to be cooked. The circulator warms up the water and keeps it that precise temperature, leaving little room for error.

The food is perfect every time. Read more about sous vide cooking here.

But don’t be fooled. Sous vide isn’t just for meats (although that is probably where it shines the most). I have found that sous vide is the best method for many vegetables, as well. My sous vide carrots are to die for!! And sous vide beets are tender and firm all the way through.

So a sous vide circulator is one of my favorite kitchen gift ideas for vegetarians, vegans, and meat eaters alike.

Excellent Cutting Boards by EliHome

Every cook needs good cutting boards. Period. They need to be sturdy, easy to clean, and lightweight but substantial enough to not slide around everywhere.

EliHome knocked it out of the park when they introduced these natural wood fiber, treated and sealed, non slip cutting boards. And they’re even dishwasher safe. I use mine every day.

It’s hard to overstate the importance of really good cutting boards. I like this 3-pack because I can use one for meats, another for veggies and the small one for herbs and spices. Having 3 eliminates the need to constantly wash my cutting board during my entire meal prep time.

They are also sold individually if that’s what you’re after. I still love my cutting boards even after nearly nonstop use over the last year that I’ve had them. A definite winner on my kitchen gift ideas list for 2022.

Price Range for the Best Kitchen Gift Ideas

These kitchen gift ideas range in price from $56 to $999 so there’s something for everyone here. I really never base my desire for a gift on price. So long as the gift is thoughtful and genuine (and solves a problem I have!), I’m very happy.

So feel free to explore all the items on this kitchen gift ideas list for 2022. I’m sure you’ll find that perfect something for the person on your gift list.
