Why gift a box of chocolates or bouquet of flowers when you can help someone create pretty (and healthy!) floral bouquets of zucchini or carrot? Or get that perfectly grated dark chocolate for steamy hot cocoa?

Here’s five items that any cook would be happy to include in their arsenal.

Kuhn Rikon paring knives


We love a good, solid, versatile paring knife. This one can chop and peel a wide range of fruit and veggies as well as slice cheese.

They also come with a matching sheath so you can prep meals on the go or take them camping. The nonstick coating makes them easy to clean and the Japanese stainless steel blade is razor sharp and durable. Available in 11 colours plus black and white; USD $10

I’d been curious about this product since it was announced on Kuhn Rikon’s site last year. While we don’t own a table-top spiralizer (due to limited counter space), we find it ideal for small jobs and as an occasional substitute for pasta.

This hand-held spiralizer set comes with two cones and sharp-bladed peelers for creating julienne and straight cut curls.

The peeler and cone snap into one another, so you’ve got the option of first peeling your veggies then clicking on the cone to start twisting away while holding the handle.

Easy to store and wash by hand, the spiralizer set is great for veggie garnishes, salads, stir-frying and snacking. Swiss made; USD $20

Kuhn Rikon scalloped tongs


Kuhn Rikon’s scalloped-edge tongs are perfect for gripping food tightly via their flat, grooved edge. They’re made of steel, coated with high heat-resistant (to 230º C/445º F) silicone so they won’t scratch non-stick cookware.

This set of three laser-etched, super sharp blades will grate a variety of coarse to fine foods. The included storage caddy even contains side markings to let you know which blade goes where and the entire block is compact enough to fit on kitchen counters with limited space.
