Smarter Home Cooking Holiday Wish List – Nick’s Picks

Nick is a programming wizard and a total techie. He's got a lot on his plate including a busy family life with his wife and two small kiddos. Nick likes to cook and try out new recipes, but time is an issue. He's all about efficiency and getting nutritious, tasty meals on the table without hours of effort.

Honestly, who doesn't need one? 5qt, 6qt, take your pick.


4. Fine Mesh Strainer / Colander

[content-egg module=AE__amazoncom template=custom/compact groups=”strainer”]

I use it for lots of things, rinsing rice and beans, straining pasta, it's our “go to” strainer.

Great for getting fine seed and such out of fruit sauces and jams.


5. Ninja Coffee Bar

Our model has since been replaced with newer versions but I like that it can do different size cups

  • no coffee pods, use your own grounds
  • came with a reusable coffee filter
  • built in milk frother.
  • Can do travel mug brewing
  • Can do iced coffee
  • Stainless steel pot
  • Wish I had two
