Whether your dad is cheffing it up in the kitchen, a master of the backyard grill, or prefers ordering takeout, there’s a good chance he could use a cooking upgrade. Father’s Day is fast approaching so we put together a list of 12 of the best cooking gear to gift dad this year.


Monthly Pizza Subscription

Struggling to pick out a solid dinner spot? Pizza is always a safe option. But what about a variety of pizzas every month? Now we’re talking. Goldbelly offers a monthly pizza subscription featuring a diverse selection of styles from some of the country’s best pizza shops like Imo’s Pizza in St. Louis, Detroit Style Pizza Co., and more. And, of course, you can get your classic New York slice, too. As far as we’re concerned, this is a no-brainer Father’s Day gift. Each month, dad will receive a box of pizza that serves four. Just heat it up and boom, dinner is taken care of.


Patrizio Apron

Sure the “Kiss the Cook” apron always gets a laugh, but how about something a touch more stylish? Get dad the Patrizio apron, a handmade cotton apron that will keep any outfit stain-free. With a handy phone pocket as well as pouches for utensils, spices, or whatever dad might need, this kitchen apron adds a touch of class to cooking.


XL Tortilla Press

There’s nothing quite like a homemade tortilla on taco night. And this polished aluminum press makes it easy to craft your own corn or flour tortillas. Plus, Verve Culture’s tortilla press is easy to tote to picnics, potlucks, or wherever dad might want a fresh, homemade tortilla.


The Smoking Gun

Bring the smokehouse home with Breville’s Smoking Gun. It’s an indisputable fact that nearly all dads take meat seriously. So give dad the gift of smoked meat with the easy-to-use Smoking Gun. You can infuse just about any food or drink with smoke flavors with the tool’s cold smoke system. The result is an unforgettable meal or cocktail that will wow any guest.


Jet Black 14 Pc Knife Block Set

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more stunning kitchen knife set than the Schmidt Brothers Jet Black 14 piece knife block set. These black as night knives, made from the same material as an F-15 fighter jet, can cut through anything in the kitchen and will last you years. No more struggling with dull knives. Dad will absolutely appreciate this incredible set.


Smart Wireless Meat Thermometer

Bluetooth meat thermometers are truly an unsung kitchen tool. Whether you’re throwing a steak on the grill or cooking Thanksgiving turkey, a wireless thermometer provides incredible ease allowing you to perfectly cook your meat. The accompanying mobile app can read temperatures up to 165 ft. away and, with predictive measuring, can determine the remaining cooking time. Plus, the system is tailored for different types of meat so you can get perfect results with whatever you’re grilling.


Adventure Chef 3pc Basecamp Set

With this 3-piece Adventure Chef set, dad can bring his cooking skills anywhere. Included in the pack is a durable, precise chef’s knife, folding faux-wood cutting board, and waxed canvas case. Bring the kitchen with you on the trail or just in the backyard.


BBQ Rubs Gift Set

Spiceology is home to a wide variety of grade-A spices, seasonings, and rubs. And the site has packaged together its top 8 seasoning blends into a very giftable set. The BBQ Rubs pack features blends like chile margarita, Korean BBQ, and more. The gift set will help dad elevate even the simplest recipes for a backyard cookout.


American Wagyu Jerky

All dads know wagyu beef is some of the best meat you can get. So, give dad something special this Father’s Day with this American Wagyu beef jerky pack. This makes for a high-class road trip snack that’s high in protein and low in calories. Bring it with you on your next camping trip with dad or just enjoy between meals.


MITI Outdoor Cooking Tool

This is easily the most unique gift on this list. The MITI cooking tool from Sportes transforms any log into a camping stove. It takes a little DIY but we can confirm there’s no cooler way to get a campfire going than splitting a log into four pieces and nailing down the MITI cooking tool for a roaring cooktop.


Cast Iron Griddle

It’s an unwritten rule that all dads need to be obsessed with cast iron. Sure your dad has a cast iron skillet but does he have the griddle? This reversible Barebones Living griddle is perfect for car camping trips and can handle anything you throw on from burger patties, eggs, seafood, and more.


Stockman's Gloves

If your dad is serious about grilling, he’s going to need a pair of fireproof gloves. With the Stockman’s Gloves from Burch Barrel, dad can easily adjust the coal pan and comfortably life the fire pit lid thanks to the heat-resistant materials. And, even though they can withstand extreme heat, they’re dextrous enough to handle whatever cooking needs you have.
