5 Mother’s Day Cookware Gift Ideas
1 – Scanpan Healthy and Eco-Friendly Cookware
Popular items include ScanPan and Cuisinart GreenGourmet. I use both and love each one. As a gift for mom, I’d recommend the Scanpan because it is also dishwasher safe where the GreenGourmet is not. Scanpan is considered healthy cookware because it is PFOA free. PFOA is a bad chemical found in most nonstick cookware surfaces, but not Scanpan. Scanpan is durable and will quickly become mom’s favorite nonstick skillet.
2 – A Great Stainless Steel Saute Pan (Skillet)
A 12-14″ stainless steel from All-Clad or Cuisinart is ideal. Ideal for searing or doing a saute of chicken, scallops, or even steaks, a quality stainless steel saute pan like the Cuisinart Multi-Clad Pro, All-Clad Stainless Steel D5 or Copper Core. The stainless steel will help make the fond, great for sauces and gravies. A quality skillet is necessary for good cooks because deglazing and other cooking techniques are very hard on normal quality cookware and will degrade performance. A 12″ to 14″ skillet is best for saute so the food is not crowded and steamed rather than sauteed.
3 – Circulon Dishwasher Safe Nonstick Cookware
Circulon Infinite is my recommendation. I have several pieces and they are wonderful. Easy to clean, heat evenly, and survive the dishwasher. They make a chef pan with 2 side handles that is great for all kinds of cooking. The cookware set is a tremendous value. The inside bottom surface where the food lays on is ridged to minimize food contact with the surface. It helps the nonstick performance also. The cookware is very solid, lays perfectly flat on flat-top stoves, and heats evenly.
4 – Le Creuset Enamel Cast Iron French Oven or Casserole Dish
Mother’s Day is a special event and a Le Creuset French Oven will surely put a smile on her face. Guys, Le Creuset is a bit more expensive than Lodge, but mom’s want that extra quality and to be able to show off that beautiful cookware. The colors are outstanding and the quality is top notch. Le Creuset is a bit of a status symbol. Also, why is this called a French Oven when others just like it are called a Dutch Oven? Le Creuset is a French company! This is a gift she will cherish for a lifetime.
5 – An Emile Henry Clay Tagine
This is perfect for the Mom that loves to cook and experiment with different cuisines! A clay Tagine is the cookware to use for Moroccan, African, and Middle Eastern dishes, but can also be used for a variety of braises and Dutch oven recipes. Attractive and useful, an Emile Henry Tagine is a wonderful piece of cookware to have. Used for dishes with long cooking times, a clay tagine slowly cooks the food while the shape of the tagine makes the steam surround the food blending flavors and making tender and flavorful meals. A tagine is a beautiful piece of cookware that is also very practical. It will become one of mom’s favorite pieces of cookware.
These are 5 great Mother’s Day Gift Ideas. Practical and useful, any of these would go over well as a Mother’s Day present.
Happy cooking, and Happy Mother’s Day!
