(BPT) - There are many ways to celebrate the holidays, but one tradition is universal: sharing a special meal. Here are kitchen tools that can help bring comfort and joy to the table, making it a meal to savor and remember.
Made in Sweden, the Ankarsrum is the aspirational choice in stand mixers — easier to use, more efficient, more versatile and quieter. Its unique design simulates kneading by hand, with a rotating bowl rather than something rotating in a bowl. Spectacular baked goods are just the beginning: it is designed for whisking, mixing, kneading, pasta making, blending, pressing, grinding, shredding, sausage stuffing and straining, with over 15 additional attachments available.
Elevate the cooking experience with the Fissler Pure-Profi Collection of 18/10 stainless steel cookware, made in Germany. The Cookstar all-stove base performs on all stovetops, including induction, is ovenproof up to 450°F, and has large stay-cool ergonomic handles and extra wide pouring rim. Laser-etched measurement markings inside pans show quarts and liters. The look is striking, combining polished and matte features, with a subtle dot design that adds personality.
Ensure perfectly prepared meat, poultry and fish using the CDN Waterproof Folding Thermocouple Thermometer (TCTW572). NSF certified to professional standards, it offers a fast 2-3 second response, a 1.5 mm thin tip for sliding easily into the thickest part of food and one-button calibration. The backlit display rotates in four directions, so it’s always easy to read.
Available in beautiful Nordic White, the JURA ENA 8 brews 10 different coffee specialties at the touch of a button — always freshly ground, not capsuled. Small, stunning and simple, it features Pulse Extraction Process (P.E.P.®) to optimize aroma, and fine foam technology to create airy, feather-like milk foam for cappuccino and more. The striking, compact design includes a cylindrical water tank inspired by premium crystal carafes.
Froth up hot chocolate with your chocolate of choice with the Capresso froth Select. This countertop automatic milk frother can make frothy hot chocolate using chocolate chips, chocolate chunks, syrup or powdered cocoa. There are four settings to choose from — cold froth, hot froth, hot milk or hot chocolate — for a variety of options including flavored steamers, matcha latte, hot apple cider and iced fruit lattes.
