There’s no better gift for a cook than new kitchen gear. Here we feature our favorites this holiday season.

The Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven makes cooking faster and more flavorful. Meats stay crispy on the outside and moist on the inside, and vegetables roast tender and crisp. Perfect for the cook who’s always on the run ($250, puckoven.com).

Taylor’s digital scale makes baking and cooking easier, combining the 2-in-1 convenience of a digital scale and measuring cup. Holds up to 6.6 pounds or 4 cups ($40, amazon.com).

Packaged precut vegetables and chopping vegetables takes time, so the Salad Shooter does all the legwork for you. It makes grating, shredding, and chopping really easy ($55, amazon.com).

The Blendtec Designer 725 is the world’s smartest, fastest, and safest home blender and operated entirely by touch screen. Change the pulse speed with the swipe of your finger, and make smoothies in as little as 14 seconds ($650, blendtec.com).

For the ultimate coffee lover, Krups EA84 Full Auto is known as “The Barista’s Little Sister.” All drink recipes (coffee, espresso, ristretto) are available at the touch of a button ($1000, krupsusa.com).

Breakfast lovers morning’s just got a whole lot better with Hamilton Beach’s Dual Breakfast Sandwich Maker. Makes one or two breakfast sandwiches at a time and it super easy to clean ($45, hamiltonbeach.com).

During those cold winter months it’s hard to grill outside but with George Foreman’s Evolve Grill System, you get the same tasty effect as if it were a warm, summer day. The grill has 3-in-1 cooking capabilities, cooks 50 percent faster, and has a 500 degree F searing function ($80, walmart.com).
