5 Best Kitchen Gifts for Father's Day

Father's day is fast approaching. This year, don't make dad settle for another grilling apron. Here are the five best kitchen gifts for Father's Day- sure to delight even the fussiest dads.

1. A Great Grill If you're really in the mood to splurge on dad this year, consider getting him a brand new grill. Our favorites include the Weber Genesis ($849) or Kenmore 4-Burner #16135 ($389). If your father loves cooking with charcoal, take a look at the MasterForge with JetLight ($159 at Lowes).

2. Cookbooks on his Favorite Subjects Weber's Smoke by Jamie Purviance does a beautiful job of illustrating the art of cooking with smoke, whether he uses a smoker or a traditional gas or charcoal grill. To help dad butcher like a pro, give him The Art of Beef Cutting by Kari Underly, an excellent resource for cutting meat.

3. Beautiful Cutting Board Once your pop's finished cooking all that meat, give him a place to cut it. The StandBy Board from Schmidt Brothers ($70 at West Elm) has magnets built in to hold his favorite knife in place, eliminating the risk that it will fall off the board.
