Mothers Day Gift Guide

For the Mom who loves to cook:

Black+Decker MultiPrep Slice ‘n Dice


While we all love to make those dishes with diced veggies and fruits, the time it takes can be overwhelming. Enter this do-it-all appliance from Black+Decker that takes over doing all your dicing, slicing, julienning, shredding, grating, and cutting. Adjust thickness as you go with an upfront dial, then throw all the accessories in the dishwasher when you’re done.

 Gourmia GWT230 2 Slice Motorized Toaster

No more pushing levers, wondering if you pushed hard enough for it to stay down.  Now simply press an “ON” button and watch your toast slowly descend into the toaster, then rise back up again. Completely silently and completely automatically.  Watch results through the cool touch window for toast just like you like it.


Viking 3 Quart 5-Ply Hard Stainless Saute Pan

 Chili cooking in the Viking saute pan

Looking for the best of the best in cookware?  We just started testing the new Viking 3 Quart Saute Pan with Lid, part of their Hard Stainless 5-Ply Construction collection.  We’ve only had it for a few short weeks, but so far, it’s wonderful.  It’s solid and heavy, but easy to control with their special grip.  Everything is riveted for long life. It even has interior markings for one and two quart levels, to ease adding ingredients in just the right amount.

Kikkerland Rhino II Folding Stool


We’ve all been there, unless you are 6-foot tall or better, there are things that are just hard to reach in the kitchen and/or garage.  A simple small step stool is the answer, and there’s nothing handier than the Rhino II folding stool.

Cherry G80-3494 Keyboard


For those who spend hours of the day working at a keyboard, whether for home or for work, having the best keyboard available makes a world of difference.

If her life revolves around a keyboard, you owe it to Mom to give her the best.
