13 Gift Ideas For Moms Who Love to Cook (Or Bake!)

Does your mom love saving amazing casserole recipes on Pinterest®? Or, does she experiment with new ways to sneak zucchini or avocados into brownies? If there’s nothing she enjoys more than making her famous blueberry muffins on Saturday mornings, then this is the gift guide for her!

Give mom an elegant, contemporary dish that looks good on display in the kitchen or on the dining room table. The graystone-glazed stoneware will make her favorite recipes look like they came right out of a glamorous food magazine. Stoneware builds up a nonstick seasoning over time, so the more she uses it, the better it cooks. From cakes to casseroles, this baker will give her consistent results every time and keep cleanup duty simple, too.

Help mom get a fast, healthy protein boost for breakfast or anytime. In minutes, she can make either a basic omelet or add in extras like veggies, cheese, or bacon. This egg cooker is also awesome for oatmeal, a quick chocolate cake or a blueberry lemon muffin.

Does your mom make a lot of lasagna? If so, our Scoop & Serve Spatula will be her new best friend. It has a nylon core and high sides, which lets her scoop everything from lasagna to cobblers while keeping each piece intact. Plus, use it with any cookware because it’s made of silicone and won’t scratch the bottom of her pans.

Cold brew coffee is smoother and richer than coffee that’s brewed in a traditional coffee maker. It’s also fantastic to have on hand as warm spring days turn into hot summer days. This Cold Brew Pitcher not only makes coffee exactly to your taste, but it also stores drinks for up to a week. Is your mom not a coffee drinker? The pitcher has an interchangeable insert for brewing tea, too!

This two-sided mat takes all the fuss out of spacing cookies on a baking sheet. One side fits small and medium-sized cookies, the other side works for spacing larger ones. No more watching cookies melt together into a mega cookie (well…that’s not always a bad thing!) or struggling to pop them off the cookie sheet.

This is a cool kitchen tool every busy mom needs. It slices food in seconds. Line up tomatoes, mushrooms, avocados, hard-boiled eggs—even mozzarella, then slice, slice, slice! Salad’s done! This is one you got to see in action.

Three tools in one, this is like the Swiss-army-knife of the kitchen. It lets you scoop condiments out of a jar and spread them smoothly and slices through toast and bagels with ease. Your mom won’t know what she did before she had this. It can scoop out every last bit out of almost any condiment bottle, even those odd-shaped ones that always seem to have curves or edges a regular knife just can’t quite reach. This is another item that makes a sweet gift topper. Why not tie it with a bow to a jar of her favorite flavor jam?

South Carolina Living said it best, “Mom’s had a stressful day, and a glass of wine might just hit the spot. The last thing she needs is to struggle with a stubborn cork. Make it easy on her with the Pampered Chef Electric Wine Bottle Opener. A single button opens the bottle with ease, and the opener’s stand doubles as a foil cutter.”

The ultimate entertaining piece, especially for moms always on the go. This serving tray comes with two reversible cooling inserts that keep dips, salads, fruit, and veggies cool for 4-6 hours. Each insert has 12 wells for deviled eggs. Clear inner trays let mom customize her tray to whatever event she’s planning. Big, beautiful salad with no tray dividers—check. A veggie platter with homemade onion dip—check. A half veggie/half fruit tray—check. A whole tray of her crowd-pleasing deviled eggs—check. A burger bar toppings tray—check. Sky’s the limit.

With the Reusable Storage Bag Set, Mom can take meals and snacks with her whenever she’s on the go! Each bag is made with 100% platinum silicone, so they’re reusable, resealable, and leakproof. And they come in four different sizes, so she’ll always have a bag ready for packing snacks or storing leftovers. The bags can also be used in the Deluxe Multi Cooker to sous vide meat, veggies, and more!

Not only is this a practical kitchen tool for under $20, but you can dress it up as sweet gift for Mother’s Day. Fill it with her favorite candies, or layer it with ingredients for her favorite dessert or pancake mix. (Bonus—you can make the recipe together as a family!) The lid and handle make it easy to decorate with a ribbon—maybe tie on a Batter Scraper with a gift tag!

Mom will love celebrating every get-together and every holiday with the Secret Center Cake Pan. Using a standard box cake mix, she can make a stunning cake with a hidden surprise inside. Add a surprise filling (like sprinkles or hazelnut spread) to the entire cake or personalize each slice with something special like fruit or small chocolate candies. With this pan, Mom will impress every guest at the next backyard barbecue, birthday party, and baby shower she attends.

From her famous chocolate zucchini bread to her top-secret banana bread, this mini loaf pan lets her make six smaller portions at once, making it faster and easier for her to dish out treats for bake sales, brunch treats, or holiday gifts. Plus, the vintage blue enamel exterior gives the pan a hip vibe to make her smile every time she gets it out to bake.

    I am long time customer with just a comment for a product addition – I have VERY limited cupboard space, I can only fit 1 spice turn around in but I have more PC spices than it holds so I stack extra’s on top & around. I would love to see you develop another ring to set atop the outer ring of the current rack. If the center was left open, the tall bottles of spice would be there, then the 2nd ring could set atop the small bottles but allow a 2nd layer that could be lifted up or off the rack as needed. That way I could keep my many spices from falling out when I am searching for one or just turning the rack. Would make my cooking more enjoyable!

      That is a great idea! I will pass it on!

      I am commenting on the parchment paper
      It is nearly impossible to take off of the roll because of the no cutting edge……

      Never will buy again…..

    Love love love my batter bowls. I use them all the time for also storing leftover soup etc.

    • Candace Kirkham April 23, 2016 at 3:44 pm #

      Those are fabulous! I love them as well! Have you ever tried the leak proof glass containers? My husband bought me one as a gift because I eat leftovers and salads a lot. They keep everything fresh for the longest time!

    I have most of these items in my kitchen and I love all of them. I’m adding the batter mixing bowl and the rigid baker to my wish list.

    Could you please come up with a mini cheesecake pan I have many recipes for little cheesecakes but no pan. Love my pampered chef products!

    • Cheryl Harding April 18, 2021 at 10:21 am #

      Hey Kathy — I know you commented in 2016 but wanted to say that if you haven’t gotten a Cheesecake pan we now have one! It is an accessory with the Quick Cooker and makes our Cheesecake recipe is over the moon delicious!!

      Hi Kathy, PC now offers a Silicone Egg Bites Mold which is perfect for mini cheesecakes! You should give it a try!

    I was the first pampered chef in staten island in 1992. I still have and use everything from back then. My favorite are my stones

    • Michele McKay April 27, 2016 at 12:56 am #

      The stones are so wonderful! I have been coming up with reasons to cook with them and my food always comes out perfect!

  7. Nanette Walker Smith April 29, 2016 at 9:44 pm #

    Would love to see the stoneware 4x loaf pan come back, especially nearer the holidays. I have had several requests for it for folks that like to bake for people but prefer the smaller loaves instead of the large loaf.

    I purchased the large and small batter bowls a few years ago and loved them. I purchased another set and the “new design” is HORRIBLE. The handles are too small, the lids are ill fitting and the glass is cheap. Wish I hadn’t given away my old set. I also purchased the large cutting board with the “juice catcher” and it warped..but sadly it is now outside the one year warranty. Used to love pampered chef but items are now becoming poorly made. Sad.
