The Best Gifts to Give to the Foodie in Your Life

An offering of flavorings, kits and handy gadgets for the food enthusiast on your gift list

Max Burton 6000 Induction Cooktop

None
(Aervoe)

$125

If you can’t stand the heat, cook with magnets. While typical stoves use gas or radiant heat, this smooth cooktop is fueled by a magnetic field (see: Joule’s first law of thermodynamics). The surface is smooth, unassuming and immediately cool to the touch when not in use—a great safety precaution for those less graceful in the kitchen. CookTek has several stoves for both indoor and outdoor use, but Gizmodo says the Max Burton 6000 is the best bang for your buck: 1800 watts for a list price of $125. Your loved one’s cast irons, or any pots and pans with traces of stainless steel, will work fine atop the eco-friendly cooker.
