25 Fancy Kitchen Gifts That Are As Useful As They Are Luxurious

Because a touchscreen toaster is the gift they don't need, but do deserve.

Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times are especially tricky this year and can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. Shop early and be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for the 25th!

1. A waffle maker that adjusts the temperature as it cooks so they can leggo their Eggo and have perfectly fluffy waffles every time.

2. A touchscreen toaster to replace the crusty one they've had in their kitchen for longer than they'd like to admit. It heats much faster than a traditional unit and has a touchscreen that lets them choose their preferred level of crispiness.

3. A moisture-absorbing pizza stone that will keep their pizzas warm and toasty, because there's nothing worse than a cold, soggy pie.

4. A electric corkscrew that can gauge the temperature of their wine before they open the bottle, because they probably deserve a perfectly chilled glass right about now.

5. And a wine purifier so they can remove the impurities and really bring out all the flavors of that perfectly chilled bottle.

6. A set of truffle-infused hot sauces for the person who likes it spicy and sophisticated. The set comes with three bottles in increasing levels of hotness, so they can pick how adventurous they're feeling that that day.

7. A nitro cold brew maker that dispenses bubbly, frothy caffeinated goodness with the simple pull of the lever. It will basically turn their kitchen into their own personal coffee shop.

8. A meat thermometer that connects to their smartphone to track the temperature and give them estimated cook times so they can take their steak game to the next level.

9. A versatile electric pasta maker for the home chef who, unlike Ina Garten, believes store-bought is never fine.

10. A stove top kettle that replaces the annoying high-pitched screeching sound with a two-note harmonic whistle. It also looks way more chic than a kettle has any right to.

11. Or an electric gooseneck kettle that can get their water to the exact temperature they prefer and keep it there for 60 minutes, which is perfect for the person who takes their coffee way too seriously.

12. A glassware set for the whiskey lover who wants to chill their favorite beverage without diluting the flavor — and feel like they're in an episode of Mad Men.

13. A set of truffle oil, salt, honey and mustard for the person on your list who wouldn't dare use regular condiments.

14. A handblown glass oil pourer, because nothing ruins a fancy kitchen's aesthetic like plastic bottles with tacky labels.

15. A Wi-Fi-enabled air fryer they can control from their smartphone so they can schedule meals up to four hours in advance and know exactly when their fried goodies are ready.

16. A collapsible cheese board that looks simple at first but is actually hiding some fun secrets. There's a swivel tray that's perfect for fancy hors d'oeuvres and a hidden drawer with three cheese knives.

17. A ceramic French press with two matching mugs for the caffeine connoisseur who shudders at the sight of a regular drip coffee maker.

18. A wine preservation system that simply pierces the cork so they can pour as much as they like and then save the rest of the bottle for later — if they have that kind of self-control.

19. A voice-controlled microwave so they can shout, "Alexa, microwave for two minutes" and truly feel like they're living in the future.

20. A fancy smart mug that will keep their coffee, tea or other hot beverage of choice at the perfect temperature. It lasts for 90 minutes on a single charge, and if they have enough self-control to make a cup of coffee last longer than that, I simply cannot relate.

21. A handcrafted cutting board with their name at the top so everyone knows who runs the kitchen.

22. A sous vide that connects to their smartphone so they'll never under/overcook their food again.

23. A device to turn frozen fruit into a creamy soft serve dessert to curb a sweet tooth without all the extra sugar.

24. A coffee maker that connects to their Echo Dot so Alexa can become their live-in barista.

25. And a smart Instant Pot that's fully programmable over Wi-Fi so they can truly set it and forget it. It's an eight-in-one device, so they'll be able to pressure cook, sauté, bake perfect cakes, make creamy yogurt and more all in the same pot.
