It’s hard finding gifts for people who are allergic to some foods. Candy, cake, or cookies could contain allergens, some life-threatening! (tree nuts for instance) With the recent fires in California wine country, there might be a wine shortage this year. What would I consider the best Christmas gifts for the food challenged among us?
Aroma stainless steel 3-cup rice cooker – makes a perfect steamed rice but can also be used to make pasta, soup, and oatmeal! It’s dishwashable too!
This is something my daughter and I would use two or three times a week! You can get it with the steamer insert and steam vegetables easily!
She wants an Instapot. I’ve heard people talk about them, but I wasn’t sure why I would want one. But then I checked it out.
Instapot Replaces 10 common kitchen Appliances – pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice/porridge cooker, yogurt maker, cake maker, egg cooker, saute/searing, steamer, warmer, and sterilizer.
It’s stainless steel and dishwasher safe!
Dishwasher safe make the best Christmas gifts for the food challenged!
Next my daughter explained the Immersion Blender, which would allow her to blend hot foods without cooling them first.
Apparently this one comes highly recommended even though there are less expensive models. You can crush ice with these things.
It’s BPA free and dishwashable.
A few years ago, my daughter got me glass bowl containers and I’m very happy with them. They are the kind of thing you find you like after you use them. I’d love more at some point.
The small containers are great for single serving, the medium sized bowls are for a complete meal of homemade meatloaf and sweet potatoes with steamed vegetables.
What about a muffin pan for our vegan pumpkin muffins? These pans are made with silicon which helps the food pop out after baking! And it makes cleaning up a breeze.
These bowls make mixing up pancakes a breeze! Made by Cuisinart, they are made with quality steel and the lids fit well!
My daughter can mix up pancakes, make a few for breakfast, put the lid on, stick it in the refrigerator, and race off to work! This makes it easy for her to come back later and cook the rest of the pancakes. Hmmm, pumpkin pancakes anyone?
What is a joy is to have both of my daughters home cooking a meal. That’s when having the right utensils provide for laughter and fun. Keeping an eye on the next generation is a requirement when they love to cook as well!
When you have different food allergies in one family, making every meal can be a chore. But with these appliances, life gets just a little easier. A handy stand mixer helps make all kinds of things!
