Zorushi Rice Cooker 10 cup automatic Rice Cooker

  • Micro computerized Fuzzy logic technology
  • Umami setting soaks and steams rice longer for enhanced flavor
  • Slow cook function for soups and other menus
  • Automatic keep warm feature
  • Easy to read LCD control panel
This one machine can make life a lot simpler for anyone who loves hot grains, ready to go when you get home.
I’ve had my Zorushi for over 8 years, these machines last!
Even a small household can make use of this size machine, the Japanese cup isn’t as large as an American.  The amount of cooked rice maxes out at 7 cups .
With this machine you can create brown rice, white rice, grain pilafs and so much more.

Cuisinart DLC-8S Pro Custom 11-Cup Food Processor, White

I’ve had one of these for over a decade, just got a new one because my husband is awesome that way.  I use this to create my own nut flours, mix batters for muffins, grate cheese. Heck ,this would most likely do the dishes if it could reach the sink.

Nesco Dehydrator

Nesco Quiet Square-Shaped Dehydrator

If you love dried fruits or jerky like my family loves them, then getting a quiet compact dehydrator like this one is a great present. You need a dehydrator with power to safely create jerky, This one goes up to 160 degrees.

I’d invest in the clean screens and a few more of the squares as well. It makes doing an apple trees worth of fruit leather a breeze.

Cuisinart 2-Speed Immersion Hand Blenderin Chocolate Cherry

For smooth sauces and soups without having to switch the food from the pot, this Immersion Blender is the perfect tool. Two Speeds means you won’t be splattering the kitchen, just painting the inside of the pot.  If there is a baby in the house, this is the secret to instant baby food. Serve the adults then puree the rest for little.

Oxo Stainless Steel Scale with Pull out controls

OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Food Scale with Pull-Out Display

This is the perfect scale to use for all your measuring needs, it goes up to 5 pounds of food, has a quick to clean stainless steel surface and the controls pull out so you don’t have to do the limbo in order to see the numbers on the scale once you have a bowl on it.

You know how much I love my scale. This is the perfect gift.

    I have a Zorushi breadmaker and it makes the best GF bread. I think the newer models have a gluten free setting but the manual mode works fine for me. Being unable to tolerate xanthan gum, I don’t have many commercial bread choices. My kitchen aid mixer and cuisinart hand blender are also kitchen magicians. I’m on my second kitchen scale — very necessary for exact measurements required for successful GF cooking and baking! The rice maker looks like a winner too! Thanks for sharing.

    This is a true food-lover’s Christmas list. I love the persimmon Kitchenaid. Yum. With all of the gorgeous colors out, I find myself wanting a new one. Mine is old (from when Hobart still made them) and it’s an amazing workhorse.
    Zojirushi is an amazing brand too. I love their stuff and use my rice cooker all the time!
    Hope you get some of the good stuff on your Christmas list this year.

    We had a Zorushi breadmaker for nearly 30 years. My husband kept it going the way you would an old car. Finally with the celiac diagnosis, we let it go, b/c everything I read says you can never really get a bread machine clean enough for GF cooking after being used for gluten flours.

    We also have a longtime Kitchenaid mixer. That, I hope, is still considered ok to use after mixing gluten flours for years. What do you think? Thank you!
