FlexBrew® 2-Way Coffee Maker

“The FlexBrew 2-way coffee maker is the perfect gift for people who drink coffee daily. I’ve given this to my parents, my sister, some in-laws, and friends. They all agree having a single serve side (compatible with K-cup® packs or grounds) is perfect for quickly brewing up a travel mug before heading out the door. And the full-pot side comes in handy on the weekends or whenever I come over for a visit (I like to drink coffee). Another bonus, it’s fully programmable, so you can set it to brew a few cups at night and have a fresh pot ready to go first thing in the morning. All you’ll need to worry about is where you left your car keys. Gifting tip: for the serious coffee aficionado, pair the FlexBrew coffee maker with a Hamilton Beach® coffee grinder and a bag of locally roasted coffee beans. Then invite yourself over for a cup – or two – of coffee.” – Matt Harrington, Social Media Manager

6-Slice EasyReach Toaster Oven with Convection

“The Easy Reach Toaster Oven is my go-to gift for the young adults on my nice list. It’s perfect for those that are outfitting their first apartment or need an upgrade. This 6-slice Easy Reach Toaster oven is large enough to fit a 9×13  baking pan or a 12-inch pizza (what young adults really care about). You can cook anything from toast to sheet pan suppers. The best thing of all is that the door that rolls back like an old-fashioned bread box. Not only is that a great safety feature to prevent burns, but it also is easier to clean because no food drips onto a pull-down door.” – Pat Schweitzer, Consumer Test Kitchen Manager

Glass & Stainless Steel with Copper Finish Kettle

“The second I saw the this copper kettle I knew I had to have it – so I ordered one for myself and a few others to stash for the holidays. It’s the perfect gift for any of the tea, pour-over coffee, or the cup-of-noodles lovers (everyone has a few) in your life. This kettle is both stylish and functional. I love that the copper color pops in my kitchen, next to the rest of my silver/stainless steel appliances. Pair this kettle with some loose tea or local coffee beans and a festive holiday mug (who doesn’t love a holiday-themed mug?). It’ll go from the box right onto the recipient’s kitchen countertop. I assure you, it’s just that cute.” – Sarah DiPeppe, Community and Content Specialist

Breakfast Sandwich Maker

“After one of my sons went off to a college with students from all over the world, international guests would visit our home with him on long weekends and holidays. This was always a great opportunity to show off the Breakfast Sandwich Maker. I would name off a variety of cheeses, condiments, and breads to choose from. Each of them would be so excited to choose their ingredients, and were amazed to watch the Breakfast Sandwich Maker in action. Even since my first overnight guest, this product was my go to gift.” – Laurie Klein, Consumer Test Kitchen Home Economist

Single-Serve Blender

“I love the Single-Serve Blender for making quick salad dressings or marinades. My kids use it in the morning to make their favorite smoothies and yogurt flavorings. The festive colors make it fun, too!  It’s so easy to store and cleans up quickly.” – Michael Stotler, Culinary Specialist

Set & Forget® 6 Qt. Programmable Slow Cooker With Spoon/Lid

“If necessity is the mother of invention, then I am CERTAIN a mother invented the slow cooker!  A busy mom (or dad’s) best gift, is dinner done when they come home from work.  This slow cooker is my favorite because the probe allows me to ensure my chicken is perfectly done, and it’s programmable – so I can time it to be ready when I am.” – MaryBeth Brault, Group Manager, Corporate & Consumer Communications
