Father’s Day Gifts for Cooks & Grill Masters

It’s almost Father’s Day, and we know you’re stumped trying to find the perfect gift for the dad on your list. But if he’s a whiz in the kitchen (or with the grill), we have some great gift ideas to help you out.

Grill Accessories

It’s the perfect time of year for a new grill set, and if dad is in need of new grilling tools, it makes an excellent gift. Want a full list of the best grill accessories? Check out our buying guide here.

We Recommend: This 20 -piece grill set from Romanticist

We Also Recommend: A small fridge so that he can keep his beer close by

Best For: Grillin’ dads


Sure, it’s a splurge, but maybe you and your siblings can go in on it? A smoker elevates Dad’s meat grilling game to new heights, and it makes for delicious feasts all year round.

There are different options when it comes to types of smokers, namely electric versus charcoal, but purists tend to swear by charcoal for the best flavors.

We Recommend: Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker

Best For: Carnivores, hunters, meat lovers in general

Sous Vide

Sous vide cooking is one of the latest and greatest trends in cooking, but it’s definitely worth the hype. Using a sous vide cooker, water is heated to the perfect temperature, cooking sealed food to the optimal temperature. Meat is never overcooked and is always delicious.

We Recommend: Anova Bluetooth Sous Vide Precision Cooker

Best For: Fancy dads; gadget fans

Frying Pan

A frying pan, you say? Isn’t that a super boring gift? Not when Dad loves to cook, and not when it’s a premium stainless steel pan. Upgrading to a premium stainless skillet makes a world of difference in cooking meats and other foods. If Dad doesn’t already have a good frying pan, now might be a great time to help him learn what a difference a good pan makes.

We Recommend: All-Clad Stainless Tri-Ply Fry Pan with Lid

Best For: Dads who are improving their cooking skills; dads who lack a good skillet


You could go for a knife set if dad needs a full set of good knives, but for Father’s Day, we like the idea of giving one good knife as a gift. Consider a nice chef knife to help dad get started with building his stock of useful tools to make cooking easier.

We Recommend: Wüsthof Classic 8″ Chef’s Knife

Best For: Any cook who doesn’t have a good chef knife

Meal Kit

Whether Dad loves to try out new recipes, is too busy for meal planning, or is trying to develop his cooking skills, a meal delivery kit makes a great gift. These subscriptions let you choose a few meals and get all the components delivered weekly. We’ve been trying out all the different brands and love how delicious everything is and how easy it is to prepare meals with the service.

We Recommend: Blue Apron

Best For: New cooks, busy cooks, experimental cooks

Coffee Things

If there’s one universal truth it’s that coffee drinkers are coffee lovers. If you’ve got a coffee drinker/lover to shop for, there might be some great gifts to consider. Here are a few:

Best For: Any coffee drinking dad
