While gadgets tend to be trendy, true kitchen tools never go out of style. That’s the thinking behind this new line from Sur La Table called Things Cooks Love. It includes dozens of simple tools made of heavy-duty steel with wooden handles that are sealed and therefore dishwasher-safe. These solid, comfortable, well-made classics include those you probably already have but may want to upgrade, like the melon baller ($17). It also includes vintage designs you may not have realized you need, such as the granny turning fork ($16), perfect for checking the doneness of potatoes or spearing pickles from the jar, and the petite masher ($20), sized for mashing garlic or a few bananas for baking. If you’d really like to treat a new cook to a great gift, you can purchase the entire 37-piece set for $650.
