This USA-made cast-iron skillet that makes everything taste better
A cast-iron skillet is a must in every chef’s (or aspiring chef’s) kitchen. And Lodge’s hefty, pre-seasoned classics are trusted and beloved. The company, founded in 1896, gets a lot of love from Amazon shoppers: This generously sized skillet has a 5-star rating from more 96,600 reviewers. A great gift for anyone, even if all they ever make is scrambled eggs (so much more delicious when cooked in cast iron).
“Really a great purchase—love this cast-iron skillet,” says one of many, many fans. “.... I also really like the fact that this is made in the USA. American-made products are just not easy to find anymore. But really, the proof in the quality of this cast iron was obvious when i made sweet potato corn bread and baked it in the oven in this skillet. It came out so nice and brown and moist.”
This book that will take you around the world... from the comfort of your couch
A bestseller in its category on Amazon, this epicurean delight takes readers across all seven continents to marvel at some of the world's most interesting ingredients and how people have used them. Think: Minnesota butter sculptures or fish sauce factories discovered from the ancient Roman Empire. This assortment of history, travel culture is sure to delight a food enthusiast on your list.
One five-star reviewer called it "Sumptuous. Revolting. Luxurious. Shocking. Deeply informative." Another explains, "This isn’t the kind of book you read in one sitting. This is the kind of book you pick up over and over again, and even again to reference before taking a trip. It makes an amazing gift for any food- or travel-lover in your life, but make sure to get one for yourself as well, because every page holds beautifully written delights."
These practical (and fun) meat shredders, just $13
A No. 1 bestseller, this set of wolverine-like claws make a great gift for the grill master in your life. Or, honestly, anyone who cooks (they double as salad tossers!).
“A great set of shredders for the price,” writes a reviewer who replaced an old pair by another manufacturer. “These Bear Paws are sharp, they shred meat easily and fit my hands very well. They're comfortable to hold, which is nice when shredding 10 to 20 pounds of pork for a party. I also use one claw when carving meat. I stick one claw into the meat to hold it steady while I carve with a knife, works much better than trying to use a fork...” They’re also great for mixing salads or lifting a turkey out of the roasting pan.
This fun game they can even play by Zoom, just $16
Among Amazon’s most popular games is this quirky drinking game that’s sure to bring on plenty of belly laughs. If your family or friends could use a little prompt to keep things interesting, this hilarious game with a 5-star rating from over 20,000 reviewers is for you.
Says a happy shopper: “This game is easy to play, silly, and fun. Even between two people, it's a fun way to spur conversation and have something to do while drinking together.” And it has staying power, too: “...the different people you play with make the game new every time.”
This natural-clay face mask that’s only $15
The quintessential natural clay mask is one of those awesome, affordable secrets held close by beauty experts — and your giftee will never look back at expensive brands once she indulges in it. And at just $15 for a one-pound tub, it will last practically forever. Nearly 46,000 reviewers give it a 5-star rating, with some saying it’s totally transformed their skin.
“Saved my face,” wrote a bride-to-be who shared her before and after photos in her review. “I’m getting married in two weeks and about three months ago I said, ‘wow, ok, this is my skin. How am I going to cover it up for the wedding?’ I came across this mask online and saw reviews and thought, ‘there is no way this mask helps with acne marks. I have yet to find one that does.’ Three months later the results just show you how fast and amazing this product is. I will never use another face mask!!!!”
This ingenious invention that eliminates the need for a spoon rest
If you're constantly scrubbing up the counter after cooking a spaghetti dinner, these grippers may be the solution for you. Available in red or black and nine, 12 or 15 inches, the tongs will help keep your kitchen clean. A clever curve at the neck elevates the silicone-covered tips to prevent them from transferring sauce or oil onto your countertop surface. Plus, the waffle design of the silicone itself makes for an extra-grippy hold so your noodles won't escape before they reach the bowl.
One clean customer declares, "A super design idea, silicone grabbing ends so perfect for non-stick coated cookware. Buy some for your friends and they'll think of you every time they use them."
This $5 gag-gift-that’s-not-really-a-gag that folks swear by
Want a gag gift that will actually be put to use? The iconic Poo-Pourri toilet spray is a No. 1 best-seller on Amazon because it actually works wonders. And with a 5-star rating from over 116,500 reviewers, people swear by it. Great for anyone in a crowded house.
“It has an amazing lemon scent,” said a grateful five-star reviewer. “It is very fresh and not overpowering. It is not synthetic smelling. With most room sprays, you end up just smelling flowery poo. This masks the smell completely. I can walk in the bathroom 30 seconds after my boyfriend and only smell lemon.”
The reviews quoted above reflect the most recent versions at the time of publication.
