Here are 26 gift ideas for the cook in your life.

We did the work for you. From stocking stuffers to pieces that will last a lifetime- we've thought of everything. These are things that your culinarily-inclined person will actually want.

1. Cake Tester


It may sound silly or seem like nothing, but this is one of the most versatile and important items in any professional chef's repetoir. Test the doneness and temperature for anything - from an angel food cake to steak! (Ateco, $1)

3. Steamer


Steaming vegetables and fish is a healthful and delicious way to prepare foods; it's nice to have this device so you can focus on other parts of your food prep while other items steam. (Norpro, $7)

12. Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls


There may certainly be cuter mixing bowls out there, but these are the best bang for your buck. Exceptionally durable, great to use over a double-boiler, without the fear of breaking. ($29)

21. Stainless Steel Frying Pan


While a non-stick pan may seem like an attractive option, you'll never get the same texture and heat conduction as you would with a stainless steel pan! (All-Clad, $110 for the 10-inch)

P.S. If you haven't picked up on it yet, stainless steel is always the way to go!

26. The Journey & My Provence


Two cookbooks from Alta Editions optimized for mobile, tablet and desktop use. Check for missing ingredients from shareable ingredient lists; learn techniques from top chefs with video and image galleries, and more! Oh, and the recipes are delicious!

We think this is a good start though.
