Stocking Stuffer Idea for Cooks

I know many CHers are familiar with this product, but I wanted to recommend the Lansky knife sharpener as a great stocking stuffer.

Given the affordability and awesomeness of this sharpener, any cook would be happy to find this in their stocking. I've mentioned it to several friends who have asked for the link.

And no. I am not a paid rep for the company. It's a good product, period.

  1. Kitchen tongs of various lengths.

    Bamboo skewers.

    Antique hour glass egg timers.

    Poultry shears.

    Instant read meat thermometer.

    The challenge is keeping things relatively inexpensive and able to fit in your average stocking.

    1. Small whisk
      Measuring spoons


        this corkscrew has been the stocking stuffer most appreciated by my gift list each year and it's a beauty, affordable and accommodates lefties & righties.

            My pleasure. First rule of stocking stuffer: one goes to the host..for testing purposes of course!

              You can tell a lot about a person by their corkscrew!

                Ha! What style do you prefer :)

                  I waitresses for many years so I like the simple corkscrews like the one you posted. I hate the big cumbersome 'easy' ones.

                    Gloriaa, that's a wonderful endorsement :)
