The Zoku Iced Coffee Maker turns piping hot coffee or tea into a delicious chilled beverage in minutes, with no electricity. It works perfectly with any brewing method to serve up a single portion without watering it down. Add syrup or spice it up with almond milk, cinnamon, or other enticing flavors. 

With so many people having different dietary needs, likes and preferences, the single serving trend is transforming savory baking.  Make the most of it with Tramontina's 10.5-ounce Covered Mini Cocotte. Bake individual servings in this small, oven-to-table Cocotte, and adjust the ingredients and garnishes to make everyone at the table feel special.

Kyocera's 2-Piece Cutlery Gift Set – which includes 5.5-inch Santoku Knife and 3-inch Paring Knife – targets home cooks who want the best. Ideal for cutting and chopping fresh fruits and vegetables, Kyocera's proprietary ceramic blades stay sharp up to ten times longer than premium steel blades, and they never impart a metallic taste or smell.

The Kuhn Rikon Stainless Steel Standing Strainer will be a welcome addition to any kitchen.  It features a built-in stand for hands-free use, plus a wide rim and ergonomic handles that easily hook on bowls for stability.  This fine-mesh strainer is designed for straining fruits, vegetables or pasta, sifting dry ingredients, blanching, or straining homemade baby food.

The Capresso Triple Brew is a single serve coffee brewer and more.  This slim, space-saving model can brew a cup of coffee – or a 42-oz carafe of coffee – or it can rapid brew tea.  It meets all your brewing needs, and it saves money versus pod/capsule systems while delivering the richest, freshest taste.

Countertop ovens are trending for their energy efficiency, speed and ease of use. The NuWave Oven Pro Plus offers advanced temperature control and convenience features, cooking up to 70 percent faster than standard ovens, and using up to 75 percent less energy. Cook at any temperature from 100° to 350° F in 1° increments, with easy-to-use digital controls.

Bon appetit, and happy holidays.
