Find a new place to go, a new food to taste and anything else a food lover is looking for.
All my posts are not sponsored in any way. Everything written here is because I like a product and I've sampled it as well as having participated to an event.
If you have somebody who is a food lover, any gadget for the kitchen will be well received. Every year there is something new and most gadgets are now so popular in our lifestyle. It could be a gift for the house as well or a house warming gift, especially if you know somebody who just moved to a new place or first place and obviously the first purchases are for the basic things. I've picked few items for all the budgets.
If deep fry is a concern but still you love your french fries this Lakeland Touchscreen Air Fryer is perfect. I've sample some chips and I must admit that they were delicious. Just need to put a teaspoon of oil in the basket and program the easy control panel. Great to fry meat or fish or seafood. A cooking guide is included for more ideas. www.lakeland.co.uk
We like and we try to eat healthy so a steamer is the perfect gift for a food lover and for a health fan too. This Cookworks 3 Bowls Steamer can be found at Argos. In one go you can steam chicken, vegetable and rice without struggling with endless pans and having everything clean in the kitchen. This is a gift that will be always in use. www.argos.co.uk
Sometimes it is enough to change toaster and kettle to feel that you have a new kitchen. This great combo is by De Longhi and it can be found at Argos. I like the matt finish and the chrome details. The toaster has got 4 slots with 6 toast settings and a defrost function as well. De Longhi is an excellent Italian brand that has been around for a long time so we a great experience in kitchen electricals. www.argos.co.uk

This is Sci Fi brought in the kitchen and it is fantastic. I am talking about the Salter Cook Pro Bluetooth Recipe Scale available at John Lewis among other retailers.
