Clean Glass Containers – Stylish & Easy to Clean. Drinking out of glass is always best – no funky aftertaste like plastic of aluminum containers. Yes, it’s glass – so be careful, but the risk is well worth the reward. Dishwasher safe and great for water, teas, iced coffees and smoothies. They are also very cost-effective. $11.99 for two. Pair these with some nice teas and gift as an ‘ice tea’ set. Free Shipping with Amazon Prime. *
Knive Sharpener – There is one thing that people who love to cook must have, and that’s sharp knives. A sharp knife is actually safer to use because you can cut with precision and less likely to ‘roll’ your food which can then cause the knife to slip and cause injury! The Priority Chef knive sharpener is easy to use. Simply choose rough or fine sharpening depending on the condition of your knive, and run it through four times per instruction. I sharpened some of my favorite paring knives and Wow! What a difference! The sharpener is ergonomically designed handle with rubber grip that is comfortable to use and the modern looking design will complement most kitchens.*
Chef Herb Scissors – Fab kitchen tool alert! Herb scissors (with 7 blades!) cut herbs quickly & smoothly. Look at these awesome little mint slices that took me literally 2 seconds to make! This is not only a huge time saver, but the snips come out even and beautiful! Great for herbs, chives, lettuce confetti, and let your imagination run wild! This would make a great & unique stocking stuffer for anyone who loves to cook! *
VinOrama Waiters Corkscrew – Premium Rosewood – Every wine enthusiast has a favorite wine opener style (rabbit, twist, automatic or jack-style) and most likely an actual favorite opener. Some people actually name their favorite openers. “Have you see Harry today?” And, should that favorite wine opener gets lost in say a park, or left behind in a vacation rental, there is often surely hell to pay – and then some serious groaning. Openers are not all that unique, but after opening as many bottles as I do, quality really counts. A poor quality opener will not barrel down into a cork correctly, often resulting in a fractured cork and cork bits in every sip of wine. The VinOrama Corkscrew is not only beautiful, but is very well crafted with a double hinge fulcom to accomodate even the longest of corks! Get this one as a gift, and then one for yourself and think of a nice name for your new ‘best friend’. Free shipping with Amazon Prime. *
Vino Mio Foldable Wine Bottle – Have wine, will travel! Glass-free, BPA-free foldable wine bag for picnics & other outings where glass is not allowed. Rinse out when done, hang upside down to dry, and it’s ready to go again! Pair with a bottle of wine and give as a gift! A pack of two (red wine & white wine) is available on Amazon/Free Ship if you have Prime. *
