If there’s a new mom in your life, her time just got a lot more precious. She’s juggling the needs of a new baby, a home, and a career. New moms need kitchen tools that save time, offer convenience, and look great. Here are the best kitchen gifts for new moms—our ten top picks for the new mama in your life.
Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker
TasteHaus’s Ann Lin recommends the Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker. It cooks food quickly and streamlines the cooking process. An Instant Pot is a slow-cooker, rice cooker, and yogurt maker all in one package—one of the most useful kitchen gifts on the market today.
Our article, Instant Pot Recipes: 30 Of the Very Best, can guide you.
Compared to a stovetop pressure cooker, the Instant Pot is much easier to use. It can double as a slow cooker, reducing your need for multiple appliances.
If you’re concerned about energy efficiency, an Instant Pot can’t be beat. The short cook time of this kitchen tool means it will use a lot less energy. In short, the Instant Pot is an eco-friendly multitasking tool.
Cuisinart Convection Toaster Oven
A literal kitchen warming gift, air fryers are perfect kitchen tools for busy new moms. Our top pick isn’t even a traditional air fryer at all, but the Cuisinart Convection Toaster Oven—a favorite of many online cooking groups. Think beyond french fries—it can bake, air fry, toast and broil. The gorgeous, sleek design will look amazing on any countertop.
We like the knobs, which are easy to adjust for time, temperature, and function. The glass door allows the user to see inside while it cooks. It’s also easy to clean by hand with hot soapy water.
Air fryers and convection ovens save time in the kitchen by cooking fast. Ultra-hot air replaces oil, crisping food. For those living the Keto life, a tray allows users to capture oil from meats and repurpose it for other recipes.
Cheap kitchen gifts need not be impractical, and Mason Jars are an excellent way to store a baby’s food and drinks. Inexpensive and readily available, Mason Jars do not stain and clean easily. Glass is not porous or made from hormone-disrupting chemicals like BPA or phthalates, which can leach from containers into your baby’s food and drinks. They’re portable and versatile and can be stored in the refrigerator and freezer.
A Vitamix blender falls on any list of high end kitchen gifts for mom. It chops and purees fruits and vegetables into perfect baby food. Best of all, it’s self-cleaning! With a drop of dish soap and warm water, your Vitamix machine can clean itself in 30 to 60 seconds.
The Vitamix blender is an eco-friendly kitchen tool and the container and lid are dishwasher-safe and BPA-free.
If you don’t have the budget for a Vitamix and looking for a great low cost alternative consider the Nutrabullet Baby.
Boon Lawn Countertop Drying Rack
We can’t blame you if you don’t prioritize a humble drying rack over other kitchen gifts for new moms, but the Boon Lawn Countertop Drying Rack is adorable and differs from a standard drying rack. Its unique design holds items of all shapes and sizes upright while they air dry. Excess water collects in bottom tray. This drying rack is great for use with small items like bottles and nipples. The Boon Lawn Countertop Drying Rack Green has a two-piece, easy-to-clean design and is eco-friendly, BPA-free, Phthalate-free and PVC-free.
Waterproof Silicone Bibs
Babies are messy eaters, and new parents can rely on this set of waterproof silicone bibs. This catch-all bib features a curved pocket at the bottom—an ideal defense against stains, drips, and crumbs. Made of food-grade silicone, it wipes clean once mealtime is over. Try wiping a cloth bib clean and re-using it twenty minutes later!
Waterproof Silicone Bibs are eco-friendly. Silicone is non-toxic so it will not harm the baby if he or she puts it in their mouth. No need to run these through a washing machine!
Collapsible Felt Basket
Don’t underestimate the utility of a carry-all basket. When you can’t bring your baby to the kitchen, bring your kitchen to your baby. Pack this collapsible felt bin with snacks, bottles, bibs, diapers, baby food and toys. Carry your phone, a book, or anything you might want with you. A collapsible basket is a versatile gift for a new mom. It stores flat when not in use, and is sturdier and more reliable than a reusable shopping bag.
Baby Bliss Eco-Friendly Baby Food Freezer Storage Tray:
The Baby Bliss Eco-Friendly Baby Food Freezer Storage Tray makes dealing with large-batch homemade baby food easy. Each tray has nine compartments that hold exactly 2.6 ounces each. Parents can pop out the perfect portion size whenever their little one gets hungry. It’s made of easy-to-clean food-grade silicone and has a flexible silicone lid that won’t crack after repeated trips to the freezer. The material is stain resistant, BPA-free, and easily transfers to a 475-degree oven.
Zyliss 5-Way Can Opener:
New moms cherish anything that can add convenience to life. The Zliss 5-way Can Opener makes opening cans, bottles and jars a breeze, even one-handed. It cuts down on clutter in the kitchen. It is a multi-application opener for use on pull tab cans, plastic and metal twist-off caps, metal bottle caps, pop-tops and jar lids.
The Zliss 5-way Can Opener is also perfect for new grandmothers – ideal for people with arthritis, or people who have lost hand strength. The inside rim grips the lid and the longer handle gives added leverage when twisted.
Zeppoli Electric Kettle:
Hungry babies don’t want to wait for water to boil, and with the Zeppoli Electric Kettle, you will have hot water in under five minutes. It thaws bags of breastmilk, warms bottles, and helps parents whip up a batch of baby cereal on-demand. Because it’s cordless, parents can place it anywhere they need a batch of water.
Kitchen appliance gift ideas seldom get more practical or stylish than this. The sleek design—clear glass and stainless steel—matches any kitchen decor, and an LED light turns the water blue as it boils.
