SousVide Supreme

It is rare that you can find a kitchen gift out there that will serve the expert chef just as well as it will your friend who can’t be trusted to scramble an egg. The SousVide Supreme is that cooking machine. We’ve seen sous vide gadgets on the market for a long time and we’ve always wanted to include one in the guide, but we’ve never really seen one that was easy to use and reasonably priced. I’m actually still shocked that you can get these for under $450 dollars.

On the off chance that you don’t know what cooking with a SousVide Supreme is, here’s the basics. You take the meat, fish, fruit, veggies, eggs or whatever that you want to cook. You season them, put them in the bag. Vacuum seal it, then place it in the SousVide where it cooks at an exact (low) temperature in a water bath. The water bath allows for perfect distribution of heat and the low temperature means that you can cook your meats to the exact doneness without having to worry about overcooking. Imagine a medium rare steak that is perfectly pink from tip to tip, not just in the center.

We really ran this machine through its paces cooking everything from poached pears (cooked in an hour), to salmon (perfect in 20 minutes), to notoriously tough beef cheeks (cooked for 72 hours). Cooking beef cheeks at a low, constant temp like that for that long created some of the most tender and delicious meat that we’ve ever experienced in our lives. You could legitimately say that it gave us our first meatgasm. Forget your friends, forget your family… If you pick one of these up, you are going to have to keep it for yourself!

Grilled Cheesus Sandwich Maker

There are certain things that you need for a great grilled cheese sandwich. Bread, cheese, add-ons like tomatoes or some bacon never hurt, but people seem to forget one very important ingredient… JESUS! Now that problem has been solved thanks to the Grilled Cheesus, the sandwich press that brands the face of Jesus into your bread as your sandwich cooks. This is not only a great gift for the super religious people in your life, but it is a ridiculously awesome gift to give any of the cranky atheists in your life. Plus, even if you have no feelings one way or another on Jesus, everyone loves a good grilled cheese sandwich, and the Grilled Cheesus delivers.

Grow Your Own Mushroom Kit

Here is a great gift for foodies. It also makes a great host gift if you are going to any holiday dinner parties this season. It might look like a milk carton sized cardboard box, but if you follow the instructions, you can grow your own Oyster Mushrooms in it. The great thing is that the kit is pretty much idiot proof and will start yielding mushrooms in less than two weeks. Also, you will get at least two crops out of it. There’s something better about food that you grew yourself and some even better than that about not having to bust your butt to grow it.

Death Star Wars Tea Infuser

Got any friends who are huge Star Wars fans and tea drinkers? This is a great stocking stuffer or gift for them. The ball is s simplified version of the Death star and the chain has a very cool looking metal tie fighter on the end. I will be using mind a lot in the future for whenever I drink loose tea. Another great benefit is that it is dishwasher safe, so clean up is a cinch. Great gift!
