A roundup of practical gifts for the chef in your life. (N.B: For more gift ideas, check our Editor’s Picks Section on the Remodelista homepage throughout the month of December; we’ll be posting new lists every week.)

Above: Set of Kitchen Utensils; $18 from Brook Farm General Store.

Above: The Cast Iron Spice Grinder from Canoe in Portland, OR, is crafted by the only remaining iron foundry in Scandinavia, using the finest grade of iron. Grind whole spices such as coriander and cloves in the lower chamber; store them in the upper chamber (the natural cork lid keeps the contents fresh); $65 at Canoe.

Above: Trapezoid Cedar Board from Canvas doubles as cutting board and serving tray; $50 at Ochre Store.

Above: Le Creuset Silicone Spatulas are everything rubber spatulas of old weren’t: they are heat resistant (up to 800 degrees), odor resistant, dishwasher safe, with comfortable round handles. We like the classic white (other colors available); $8 to $14 each at Sur La Table.
