Jordan Executive Chef Todd Knoll recommends gifts for cooks -- the best kitchen gadgets and affordable kitchen tools for home cooks, chefs and foodies.

The Prepara Roasting Laurel promotes air circulation for even roasting and is heat resistant to 500 degrees. It takes the form of whatever you are roasting and is BPA free and dishwasher safe.

The Microplane box grater has a removable microplane panel and is dishwasher safe.

ThermoWorks ChefAlarm is accurate, splash proof, has a 700 degree max temperature and will alert you at 92 decibels when you have reached your desired temperature.

The Global Utility Knife is a great go-to knife for a variety of users and hand sizes.

The Drosselmeyer Nutcracker is machined in Sweden and cast in zinc and called the world's first double-level action nutcracker.

The Rosle Fine Tongs are stainless steel and used in the final plating.
