Top Christmas Gifts for Home Cooks

The main reason to give someone a cooking or baking Christmas present is because it pays dividends for the rest of the year; you can rightly expect weekly deliveries of cakes, cups of fine coffee and enjoy inviting homemade dinners.

To help you purchase the perfect cooking or baking Christmas gift for a food or drink fan, we've made this list of great gift ideas.

There aren't any super-cheap items here because if you want a decent kitchen tech you'll pay a little more, but what price are you willing to bet on gratitude and the constant serving of a snack or meal?

We've handpicked some of the best kitchen gadgets to ease the exploits of any home cook, all you have to do is pick the one they like best.

KitchenAid Artisan mixer

If you know someone who loves baking but doesn't have the titanic muscles (or enough time) to mix many bowls of sugar and flour all the time, a mixer is a gift for you. It does your mixing for you, so you can spend more time rummaging through cupboards trying to find that spice jar, and less time mixing.

The guide makes some of the most premium faucets stand out right now, which is why they make for great gifts as they will last for a long time and deliver great results. They are also pretty classy looking appliances so will match your kitchen décor.

Instant pots will give you plenty of versatility and flexibility in the kitchen, as they are a combination of slow cookers and pressure cookers, allowing you to create meals to cook throughout the day or simply unpack a meal in no time.

This pressure cooker tops our list of the best instant pot, pressure and slow cookers, so you know you're getting a quality gadget here. Make sure you're only gifting it to someone who is sure to invite you though for dinner.

Most people didn't have room in their kitchen (or budget) for a huge coffee machine, so here's a smaller coffee dispenser instead of a Nespress Vertuo Plus. It uses Nespresso pods as well to deliver your coffee in an easy, quick and painless way, although it may not taste as fresh as ground coffee.

The real reason you want the Vertuo coffee plus as a treat is so it blends seamlessly into your kitchen decor. Forget that a massive espresso machine that will take up half the surface of your home can be slotted into a convenient location.

Why not buy a useful Christmas gift, in the form of a machine that turns everything you put into it into juice? Juice is the best way to have your five days, anyway.

This Philips juicer doesn't have all the bells and whistles of some of the other gadgets on this list, but it will do exactly what you want to make juice. You can put various objects in it, from oranges and apples to more serious things like pomegranate seeds and nuts, and still not get a smooth mixture.

NutriBullets are popular juicers that can mix whatever you throw into them (well, the things you like to juice, at least) without breaking a sweat. You can easily use them to make quick healthy smoothies or spreads with different ingredients.

This is a blender, not a food processor, so you might not have any success trying to make a mixture of guacamole or falafel here. But for people who want to easily create a healthy drink while they're on the go, this is a great gift.

There are many healthy Christmas gifts on this list, but we also need to bring up one good commodity - waffles. This gift is for someone, and you can help them get what is important in life: friends, waffles, work.

This Cuisinart waffle maker has a griddle designed so your waffles will be in the traditional square pattern, rather than the thin and round ones that some other waffle makers create. It's fast and easy to use, so there's no need to fiddle around with different settings and timings.

Google on the homepage is one of the few smart speakers at the screen, and that gives it a lot of skills that can be useful for home baking and cooking (although it might not bake itself, you'll still have to get the job done).

The screen lets you view recipes and lessons, and you can also use the home hub to change music, answer the phone, and access other information, all hands-free.

If you want to buy a great Christmas gift for cooking or baking, but don't know what kind of appliances the recipient has (or don't want to buy a food processor), this will be great for them.

Amazon's Alexa Smart Assistant has some pretty handy baking and cooking skills, so the Echo device is a great alternative to Google's home hub. It's a less intrusive addition to the kitchen, so you can easily place it on a small shelf and hide it from view, unlike a home hub that has to be front and center.

This device doesn't have a screen, so you have to rely on audio instructions and prompts, but if you're busy kneading dough or roasting vegetables, you really don't want to be distracted by the display.
