Do you have a foodie on your holiday list this year?
We tapped Chef George Duran to share his picks for gifts that are sure to be a hit.
Scroll on to see Duran's shopping advice and check out all of his picks.
What should you look for when purchasing new kitchen items?
Make sure you're searching for something you don't already have! An air fryer could be on your wish list, but check to see if your toaster oven has an air fryer function. After all, air frying is a fancy way of saying "convection baking"!
What kitchen items are worth investing in?
Buying cheap cookware is the worst thing you can do. You want to invest in pots and pans that will last numerous generations (yes, those exist). You want to ask yourself, is this the last cookware set I'll ever need to purchase? Pay up now so you'll never ever have to pay anything else later. You're saving in the long run.
What products make the best gifts?
I've never met anyone who was unhappy to receive a new cutting board. Why? Because cutting boards wear and nobody ever thinks about replacing their warped boards for something new and sturdy. Just watch their faces when they unwrap a new one.
What's something you would love to receive as a chef?
This year on my holiday list I'm going to go where I've resisted going for a long time. I want a good ice cream machine. I always tell myself, if I get an ice cream machine I'm just gonna eat ice cream all day. True, but I want to create new flavors too! Plus, my kids will think I'm the coolest dad who owns one!
