Ever wondered what to give home cooks who have everything? It can be hard to find gifts for cooks since you’re looking for something practical and personal.
We’ve pulled together a handful of our favorite gifts for cooks. These ideas cover the gamut — from gifts for grillers to meat gifts for carnivores. Whether you’re looking for a gift for a cook that likes to cook beef or just eat it, we hope these ideas help!
Gifts for Carnivores
Give a Cow. This may sound funny, but we’re serious and it happens regularly. Every year we have several sixteenth, quarter, half or whole cow orders for family and friends that have “everything.” The great thing about this gift is it keeps giving for a long time — after all, a cow is a lot of beef!
Give a Funny Beef T-Shirt. “I enjoy romantic walks through the meat dept.” and “body by Ribeye” are two of t-shirt slogans that have made us laugh recently. Everyone always needs another t-shirt, right?!
Gifts for Cooks
Give a Digital Meat Thermometer. If you’re cooking meat of any kind, you need a pro-grade digital meat thermometer. It will improve how you cook more than any other kitchen tool. The Thermapen is what we use every day.
Give a Cast Iron Skillet. If the person you’re shopping for is a home-chef, it’s very likely they already have a cast iron skillet. If not, they need one. The beauty of cooking with cast iron is that it heats evenly, which makes it perfect for searing a steak.
Give Mason Jars or Ice Cube Trays. Yes, we know this one may sound strange, but let us explain. Mason Jars and Ice Cube Trays are must-have kitchen tools when making, storing and freezing homemade bone broth. They’re also very inexpensive gifts if you’re looking for a practical and unique stocking stuffer.
Give a Dutch Oven. Are you asking, “What’s a Dutch Oven?” It’s an amazing heavy pot with a tight fitting lid that is perfect for using in the oven or on the stovetop. They’re ideal for soups, stews and braising.
Give Steak Knives. There are all different types of Steak Knives available, and you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a good set. One of the biggest things to ask yourself before purchasing is do you want a blade that’s straight or serrated. We prefer serrated, but it’s entirely a personal preference.
Gift for Grillers
Give a BBQ Grill Tool Set. There are dozens of BBQ grill tool sets on the market. Since we primarily grill beef, we always look for long handled tongs and a long handled spatula. We aren’t fans using the fork that comes with some BBQ grill tool sets because when you pierce the beef with the fork, you’ll loose flavorful juices.
Give a Meatball and Slider Rack. Impress friends and use this rack to grill meatball and sliders. Lock the meatball and sliders into place so they don’t catch the grill rack.
Stuffed Burger Maker. Do you want to build a better burger? This is the ultimate 3-in-1 burger making tool for regular burgers, sliders and stuffed burgers.
