Looking for a gift for a graduate this spring? Here are some fun gifts (all under $100) for grads that like to cook.
This popcorn maker from Cuisinart is fun to use, looks great and makes perfect popcorn. Special vents in the popping bowl let moisture escape to keep popcorn crisp. Pops up to 10 cups in under 5 minutes, and keeps it healthier by letting you decide the type and amount of oil and salt you want. Operation is simple and cleanup is dishwasher-easy. About $60.
Bamboo is a renewable resource and much easier replaced than traditional maple and oak. Plus it's much more affordable. Totally Bamboo has a huge variety of sizes and styles.
A grill griddle is perfect for cooking vegetables, cut meats or eggs on the grill. Their are a lot of griddles out there but I particularly like this one sold through Sur La Table. It is similar to the heavy-duty griddles in restaurants and has a 2-inch sidewall that keeps food from falling into the grill. About $80.
Every kitchen should have a good quality pepper mill. Zassenhaus has been making mills since 1867.
This artisan-made butter dish is simply beautiful. About $82.
