Gift Ideas For The Chef In Your Life

Christmas is just a few weeks away, so I thought I would pull together a list of some of my favorite kitchen products.  The products that made the list are all affordable, costing between $15 and $100.  These items are also practical, most will cut down on preparation times.

1.  Chopper - $29.95
I use this to chop vegetables for soup.  It saves me a significant amount of time.  Everyone should have one of these.
EPU Switzerland Alligator Dicer

2.  Cheese Grater - $14.95
Freshly grated cheese tastes better.  This saves you time, and it is safer to use than other graters.

3. Non Stick Rolling Pin - $26.99
This is a must have for anyone who likes to bake sugar cookies.
