If your dad’s a foodie, be sure to treat him this Father’s day.
Here are our top five:
1) Onion goggles
It’s enough to make a grown man cry – no not watching their football team lose, chopping onions. However this painful task needn’t cause tears- the Eddingtons Onion Goggles now make it comfortable to chop, slice and dice raw onions with ease.
2) Brulee blow torch
For the more ambitious, for those dads really wanting to impress, there are some professional style gadgets he can add to his arsenal. This Eddingtons Brulee Torch for example will finish of a crème brulee with the most perfectly blistered caramelised topping.
3) BBQ tools
Dads do love taking charge of the grill at a BBQ, not least because it give him the chance to sup a few beers while he’s flipping burgers and turning the sausages. The trick is to be attentive at all times and with a good set of tools like this Bodum grill tool set he has no excuse for burning a thing.
But in case he does get distracted, you could also treat him to this clever IDEVICES iGrill Mini Meat Thermometer that hooks up to your iOS compatible smart phone or Bluetooth connection to let him know when the meat is done.
4) Mini chopper
If Dad loves to make authentic curries and other dishes, part of the food prep will require grinding and blending a variety of spices. This Kitchenaid mini-chopper would be excellent as it takes seconds to do the job and is easy to whip out when it’s needed.
For dads on a healthkick, a Nutribullet is a must for making delicious smoothies and juices. It’s powerful enough to blitz just about any fruit and veg and can even blend nuts, seeds and ice.
