Mother's Day

America’s Test Kitchen Host Julia Collin Davison’s Favorite Mother's Day Gifts

If you’re going to give your mother kitchen gear on Mother’s Day, make sure you give her something luxe.

Published May 12, 2017.

In anticipation of Mother’s Day, we decided to celebrate mothers all week at America’s Test Kitchen. Today, ATK TV host Julia Collin Davison talks about the best high-end kitchen gear to give your mother this Mother’s Day. But Julia’s list does come with a warning:

“Kitchen gifts are great for Mother’s Day, as long as you realize that they could be interpreted negatively,” says Julia. “Kind of like gifting a vacuum. So, if you're going to do it, make it something super cool and/or luxe. Or, pick a few small kitchen wares and gift wrap them in some fabulous leather purse, like a blue Coach tote (hint hint to my husband).”

Julia's Top Mother's Day Gifts

Vitamix 5200 Blender: These blenders are expensive, but they're worth it. They're the darlings of restaurant chefs, but that doesn't mean you can't have one on your kitchen counter, either. [Read Our Review | Buy on Amazon] 

Sous Vide Stick by Anova One: This comparatively inexpensive stick-style sous vide machine is our favorite in the test kitchen. It heats faster than other circulators, and performed reliably through a battery of kitchen tests, including a 48 hour pork belly cook. [Read Our Review | Buy on Amazon

Le Creuset Dutch Oven: This is the crème de la crème of Dutch ovens. They come in a lot of beautiful colors—even blue to match that Coach tote—and you can't go wrong giving one as a gift on Mother's Day. [Read Our Review | Buy on Amazon
