Father’s Day only comes once a year and if your dad loves to cook, then picking out the perfect gift is as simple as pie. Dads love tools, and there are quite a few tools that can be used in the kitchen to make cooking faster, better and easier. Here are some great ideas for the cooking dad.
There is nothing more frustrating and dangerous than a dull chef’s knife. Dad always says you need the right tool for the job, so this Father’s Day get dad a new chef’s knife, and he will be slicing and dicing like a pro!
There is no better breakfast than a nice warm waffle, but in order to make waffles the easy way, dad is going to need a waffle iron. Waffle irons allow anyone to make fresh delicious waffles that rival most restaurants. Just add some waffle batter, close the lid and in a few minutes dad can have a nice toasty waffle. Pile them high with any toppings that you want.
Dad can easily make square waffles, round waffles and thick Belgian waffles. Multiple settings allow for the perfect waffle creation. Nice and toasty on the outside, and warm and fluffy on the inside. This is one Father’s Day gift that will keep on giving.
Nobody can resist the smell and taste of freshly baked bread, not even dads. There is no simpler way to make fresh bread, than with a bread maker. All dad has to do is drop in some dough, push a few buttons and sit down and watch the game. The bread maker does all of the work, and by half time dad can have fresh baked bread for the half time finger foods. Pile on some fresh turkey or ham to create the ultimate triple decker sandwich.
Bread makers don’t stop there. Dad can also make great tasting cakes, and some bread makers can bake fresh pasta and lasagna as well. Bread makers are another great tool to add to dads kitchen tool arsenal.
There is absolutely no reason to mix anything by hand anymore, when dad could use the power of a kitchen mixer. Bigger, badder and more power, that is what dads always want. Think of it as a power tool for the kitchen. They have different speeds, different attachments, different colors and they make mixing anything fast and fun.
What dad doesn’t like meat and potatoes. Crock pots and slow cookers are a great way to make that perfect stew. Just add in some fresh veggies, a whole roast, close the lid and in a few short hours, dad will have the best home made stew he has ever eaten.
Make mouth watering baked beans that are slow cooked to perfection. Create that masterpiece pot of chili that will take first prize at any chili cook off. Great tasting food takes time, and the best and easiest way to do it, is with a slow cooker.
There are so many different kitchen tools that any dad would love to have for Father’s Day. If dad is a coffee drinker make mornings easier with a drip coffee maker, or his very own Espresso machine. A new microwave would heat up any leftovers that dad made with his new slow cooker. Blenders make great juices, milkshakes and mixed drinks. A toaster oven is a great way to re-heat pizza. If your dad loves to cook, then get him a tool for the kitchen this coming Father’s Day.
