One of Keurig’s most popular coffee makers of 2021, the K-Mini features a slim, compact design ideal for small spaces and comes in a bunch of fun colors. It can brew up a cup of joe in seconds—it can even fit a travel mug—and can hold up to nine pods in the machine itself for easy storage.
2. Dash Mini Waffle Maker
Meet the cute and compact appliance that earned celebrity status on Amazon over the last year, with more than 180,000 Amazon reviews. The Dash mini waffle maker is a bruncher’s dream, producing adorably tiny 6-inch waffles. Plus, it heats up in just minutes and has a nonstick surface so you don’t even need spray.
3. Stasher Silicone Reusable Storage Bag
Stocking stuffers are great but sustainable stocking stuffers are even better. Take one of these reusable storage bags from Stasher. Each bag is made from durable, BPA-free silicone that keeps food fresh for days. Microwave- and dishwasher-safe, they come in a rainbow of colors and in “pocket,” snack, sandwich and half-gallon sizes.
4. KitchenAid Stand Mixer
Few kitchen appliances are as recognizable or as beloved as the KitchenAid stand mixer. It’s expensive, sure, but thousands of people—including Reviewed’s cooking experts—agree it’s well worth the investment. Available in tons of gorgeous colors, the mixer can do everything from whip up cake batter to knead bread dough to make pasta from scratch.
5. Nutribullet Personal Blender
If one of your giftee’s New Year’s resolutions is to get healthier, the Nutribullet can help them do just that. It’s the best personal blender our experts have ever used, thanks to its portability and speed and how smoothly it blends. They’ll be whipping up trendy green smoothies in no time.
6. Nordic Ware Prep & Serve Mixing Bowl Set
A good set of mixing bowls is always an appreciated gift. These ones from Nordic Ware are made from heavy-duty, BPA-free plastic and have a non-slip silicone bottom that prevents them from sliding around while you mix. They’re also conveniently both dishwasher- and microwave-safe.
7. Nostalgia Indoor Electric S’mores Maker
You no longer need a fire pit or a bonfire to roast up some ooey-gooey s’mores. You can make the nostalgic treat inside with this electric flameless s’mores maker. Made with durable stainless steel, it comes with two roasting forks and has compartments to hold all the essentials (graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate, of course!).
8. Joseph Joseph Adjustable Rolling Pin
Avid bakers will love this unique adjustable rolling pin. Made of sturdy beechwood, it comes with removable discs that allow you to customize the thickness of your dough to be 1/16, 1/6, 1/4 or 3/8 inches. Nearly 18,000 Amazon shoppers have given the rolling pin their seal—or rather, their chef’s kiss—of approval.
9. Ninja Foodi 10-in-1 Pressure Cooker and Air Fryer
There’s more than one reason why so many people are obsessed with the Ninja Foodi. Not only is it a pressure cooker, slow cooker, dehydrator and more in one, it also has an air fry function for when your giftee is craving something crispy and crunchy. When our experts tested it, we liked how well-designed it was and that the pot is nonstick for easy cooking and cleaning.
10. OXO Good Grips Baking Essentials Pop Container Set
A set of food storage containers may not seem like the most thrilling present but trust us, organizers and type A personalities everywhere would argue otherwise. These ones from OXO are airtight and dishwasher-safe and come with handy measuring cups that attach to the inside of the lid. There’s even a brown sugar designed specifically to keep your brown sugar moist and fresh.
11. Keurig K-Cafe Coffee Maker
Another Keurig pick? Yes, and our experts at Reviewed believe this is the most versatile single-serve coffee maker you can buy. In testing, we liked that it can brew up everything from coffee to cappucinos to lattes in seconds and that it even has an attached milk frother for when you want to get fancy.
12. Marcato Atlas 150 Pasta Machine
Maybe they fancy themselves the next Top Chef or maybe they consider spaghetti a complete food group. Regardless, they’ll be thrilled to find this pasta maker under the tree. Reviewed’s experts dubbed it the best you can buy because the hand-crank machine is very easy to use and can make everything from lasagna to fettucine.
13. Mr. Coffee Mug Warmer
Leave cold coffee in 2021 with this handy mug warmer from Mr. Coffee. Lightweight and portable, it’s easy to take on the go—it’s great for the office!—and has an extended power cord so you can plug it in anywhere. It will keep your giftee’s coffee, tea or hot cocoa warm for hours on end.
14. Rachael Ray Cucina Nonstick Bakeware Set
Any baker would be excited to receive this celebrity-approved baking set from chef Rachael Ray. It comes with 10 versatile pieces—including cake pans, muffin pans and cookie sheets—and everything is nonstick. Bonus: Each piece has built-in silicone grips on the edges so you can pull them out of the oven sans potholder.
15. SodaStream Fizzi Sparkling Water Maker
For the person who drinks their bodyweight in Diet Coke or La Croix a day, save them some money this holiday by giving them a SodaStream. They’ll be able to make their own carbonated beverages in the flavors of their choice with little more effort than the press of a button.
16. Instant Pot Duo
If someone on your list doesn’t yet have an Instant Pot, make this the year they get on the bandwagon. The Instant Pot Duo has seven cooking functions—from slow cooking to pressure cooking to steaming—in one compact appliance and can have dinner ready in half the time. You can choose from three, six or eight quart sizes.
17. Brita Plastic Water Filter Bottle
Brita might be famous for its water-filtering pitcher but the brand makes equally good water bottles. While the stainless steel Brita water bottle is our experts’ favorite, the plastic version made Amazon’s list of must-haves this holiday season. Available in five pretty colors, it has a water filter built into the straw that cleans your water as you sip.
18. Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt & Ice Cream Maker
Not sure what to get the person on your list who has a serious sweet tooth? How about an ice cream maker? Better yet, how about an ice cream and frozen yogurt maker? This one from Cuisinart does both, and, after testing, our experts chose it as the best one available. It’s easy to use and makes a delicious batch of ice cream in just 20 minutes.
