What to get the dad in your life? It can be challenging. We’ve gathered a couple of our favorite ideas for the dads who cook. All these are linked on Amazon and, if you have Prime, can probably be delivered in one day! Or, if you are like our Debbie, and love to shop and support the brick and mortar stores in your area, you can probably find similar items close to you.

We talk a lot about making sure any meats you are grilling get to the right internal temperature before serving. How about a gift of a digital thermometer for dad? They are accurate and inexpensive and can be purchased at a Target or Wal-Mart or hardware store. Amazon has this one on sale right now for under $20!
Maybe the dad in your life loves beer…maybe he should try his hand at brewing his own! This kit can turn his passion for beer into a hobby. For the man who has everything!
If your man is a more adventurous cook, this Chef’Steps® Joule Sous Vide cooker is all the rage. It’s small and works in any pot. No need for a lot of large equipment, and bonus, it’s easy to store! Sur La Table also carries this item, in case you live near one and want to pick it up directly.
Some dads make waffles for the kiddos every weekend while mom sleeps in (awwww!); and maybe that old waffle maker is wearing out. The gold standard for waffle makers according to this review is the All Clad® Classic Round Waffle Maker. This makes perfectly round, browned waffles every time.
And one of the favorites among the dads in our group is a Nespresso machine®. You get delicious, perfectly brewed espresso or coffee every time with any of the Nespresso® machines. This one comes with an ingenious milk frother to make hot or cold lattes or cappuccinos. Sur La Table also carries Nespresso® machines.
Or, just give Dad a puppy!
