Oprah’s Favorite Things of 2021 is finally here to guide all of us into gifting season the right way. As expected, her choices are a solid mix of essentials, little luxuries, and unique finds, and we decided every one of her picks for the kitchen are too good to leave out. So, we’ve included all of them here so you can get to shopping faster (which we know is the name of the game this year thanks to shipping delays). You’re sure to find what you need for everyone in your life, but be prepared to want a few of them for yourself, too. In celebration of small businesses and those owned by women and people of color, Oprah’s Favorite Things includes an abundance of such brands, making it easy to shop even more meaningfully than you already do. Scroll on for Oprah’s Favorite Things for the kitchen and start building your archive of gifts for the home bakers, pasta-makers, and cookware fanatics in your life.

Best-selling craft hot sauce brand TRUFF, which curates blends of ripe chili peppers, organic agave nectar, black truffle, and savory spices, is an Oprah favorite for good reason.

Freezer-, microwave-, oven-, and dishwasher-safe, this pair of breakfast cups from Skyros are as hard to destroy as they are easy to look at. Use them for coffee, tea, oatmeal, cereal, smoothie bowls, soups, sides, and more... or just opt to display them as decor.

Making Belgian-style waffles at home is one thing, but making Belgian-style waffle sandwiches at home in just a few minutes is Oprah-level ingenuity. Start some new breakfast traditions this season with this unique cookware tool which works on gas and electric stovetops as well as outdoor grills and any open flame (camping, anyone?).

It's time we do away with unsightly kitchen countertop tools, and this blender and water-infuser set by Beast is a solid start for anyone looking to upgrade.

If you've found yourself commuting once again, it's time to level up your to-go coffee routine to meet the one you mastered for working from home. This Commuter Cup by Corkcicle uses the brand's impressive insulation technology to keep cold things cold and hot things hot, evn all day. It's also available in 8 different color ways — one for every stocking!

We love this cookware set's different colorways, which range from black and gold to baby pink and retro yellow, but its durability, scratch-resistance, and dishwasher compatibility are what really set it apart from others. It won't wear faster from machine washing or use on (very) high heat, nor will it expose you and your household to the dangerous chemicals that these things can often emit.

Why stop at pasta? Always have fresh, homemade bread at home with help from Oprah's favorite Yedi bread maker. It also includes the Yedi deluxe accessory kit which includes tools for measuring, shaping, mixing, and even adding nuts, seeds, or fruit to your breads as they're being made.
