Clad In Christmas


I hate to break it to any of you novice chefs out there, but a cook, chef or baker is truly only as good as their tools. Nearly every cook has an idea of what would be in their dream kitchen – and it goes far beyond quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances. Namely, they can picture foolproof small appliances for every need and whim, cookware that sparkles and performs perfectly, and tools to make it a cinch to flip, sauté, and stir your delicious dishes. If you’d like to help your favourite foodie type build the cooking space of their dreams, may I recommend you pay All-Clad a visit?

Electric Griddle by All Clad

For the Brunch Master: Electric Griddle – $360 @ Hudson’s Bay
One of my most favourite things to make are waffles and pancakes. Nearly every weekend I’m whipping up a new variety – from coconut cream to red velvet to carrot cake. And yet for all my expertise on these two quickbreads, my pancakes are never quite as airy and fluffy as I’d like them to be (keeping in mind I make mine vegan). The secret to restaurant-quality pancakes my friends, is this All-Clad Electric Griddle. Made from polished stainless steel, this countertop cooktop heats up evenly, cooking your pancakes and other breakfast foods – eggs, bacon, etc. – to perfection. Not only that, it’s pretty easy to clean, and can even be brought over to your brunch dining area so you can cook orders to spec. This little appliance would definitely be a part of my dream kitchen – how about yours?

All-Clad Kitchen Tool Set
For The Weekday Warrior:
Kitchen Tools Set – $160 @ Hudson’s Bay
This is the item that inspired this post actually. I was perusing Hudson’s Bay for a way to spend some of my wedding gift cards and I stumbled up on this beautiful, gleaming set of essential tools. Rendered in mirrored stainless steel, these tools feel sturdy, but not heavy – in fact, they’re ergonomically designed for max comfort and balance as you ferociously keep your roux from burning, stand over the stovetop to stir a stew, or delicately flip a crepe. Featuring five essential tools you’ll want to keep within reach while crafting a weeknight meal, this gorgeous collection comes with its own canister so you can proudly display it even when you aren’t in the kitchen.

All-Clad Pizza Set with Pizza Stone
For The Swinging Bachelor: Pizza Stone Set w/ Tray and Cutter – $170 @ Cookworks
Just because he lives by himself doesn’t mean he can’t learn to cook. And if nothing else, learning to cook pizza offers you countless recipe options and a surprisingly complete meal when you pile on some veggies and skip the grease associated with takeout versions. This Pizza Stone Set includes an authentic stone that naturally cures over time as you replicate the wood-fired taste of gourmand pizza. Nestled in a stainless steel holder, it’s easy to take in and out of the oven and also doubles as a serving tray. Of course, you’ll need a good cutter to get through those layers of toppings and cheese, but this kit serves that up as well. Now all he needs is a go-to pizza dough recipe and he’ll be dishing out delicious, homemade pizza in no time.

All-Clad Mixing Bowls and Measuring Spoons
For The Best Baker: 4-Piece Measuring Spoon Set – $32.99 & Stainless Steel Mixing Bowl – $44.99 – $99.99 @ Bed, Bath & Beyond

If your loved one’s specialty is baked goods, then upgrade their plastic wares with stainless steel – keeping in mind that it’s not just about the material, but the design details that make these pieces special. Take for example, All-Clad’s Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls. They’re actually completely rounded at the bottom so your ingredients don’t get stuck along edges or corners, ensuring a more smoothly blended batter. The removable silicon base suctions to your counter so you won’t actually spill your mix during a vigorous stir, but the large one-sided handle can also help you secure it in place.  Slipping off the base actually makes this bowl suitable for double boiling chocolate (or other ingredients) over a saucepan as well. As for the measuring spoons? These shiny spoons are designed to more easily slip into bottles so you can skip risking the dangerous act of shaking your desired ingredient into the spoon. Together, these make for a perfect baker’s delight.

All-Clad Stainless Steel Tea Kettle
For The Afternoon Tea Hostess: Stainless Steel 2QT Tea Kettle – $160 @ Cookworks

Although there’s a bunch of electronic tea kettles on the market these days, there’s something to be said for owning a reliable, analogue kettle that simply needs to be heated. This sturdy stainless steel model from All-Clad is built to last a lifetime. Thanks to its materials, tightly-fitting lit and flat-bottomed design, it’ll still heat up in a snap and works with induction stoves as well as regular ones. Dishwasher-safe with a visible fill line and that classic whistling noise when your beverage or hot water is ready, this is a sweet choice for the tea drinker in your life.

All-Clad of course, has a full range of cookware as well. Whether you’re looking to upgrade a single piece or replace an entire, oxidized set, they really are one of the best-regarded brands in the world, used by pro chefs in restaurant and at-home kitchens. All-Clad is available at a number of retailers in Canada, including the ones featured in this post – Hudson’s Bay, Bed, Bath & Beyond, and Cookworks – as well as others like Amazon.ca, Cucina Moderna, or your local high end specialty housewares store.
