I definitely spend more time in the kitchen since starting keto, mostly because I now make more of my food from scratch. I enjoy cooking, but it can be extremely time consuming. Thankfully there are a few items that have made navigating the keto lifestyle a little easier, and if you know someone following keto, these items make great gifts.
This is the second gift list we have put together, and items posted here are in the mid-to-high price range somewhere between $25 and $550. For some great less expensive keto gift ideas, check out our under $25 keto gift ideas post.
Magic Bullet Blender - 11 Piece Set
The Magic Bullet blender is great for mixing smoothies, chopping vegetables and herbs, and whipping up bulletproof coffee or hot chocolate, but keep in mind it is a light duty blender.
Although it has enough power (250 watts) to chop ice, frozen fruit and nuts, it doesn’t really do these things very well, and I would only recommend using the Magic Bullet for blending liquids, and thawed fruits or vegetables.
It is still a great little blender. I use mine multiple times per day, and it has held up well for more than 10 years. The Magic Bullet still holds its own against other newcomers in the small blender department, but if you are planning to create thick frozen smoothies, or nut butters, I would suggest one of the other blenders included a little further down the list.
KeTo Bars - The Original High Fat, Low Carb, Ketogenic Bar
Keto Bars have super simple healthy ingredients, and they taste great. No fillers or questionable thickening agents. They are sweetened with Erythritol and Stevia, and come in three flavors: chocolate peanut butter, chocolate almond, and mint chocolate. All three flavors are dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan.
Buy one box and use the individual bars as stocking stuffers, or give the whole box of 10 as a single gift. These Keto Bars are Amazon’s Choice for keto bars, and the only keto approved bar that made our list.
Secura French Press Coffee Maker
Keto followers tend to take their coffee very seriously. Whether they are doing intermittent fasting and drinking it black, or adding fat and whipping up some frothy bulletproof coffee, a french press is a great way to get the most out of your coffee.
A key benefit of a glass or stainless steel french press is there is no plastic. Even BPA-free plastics have the potential to leach harmful chemicals into our foods, especially when heated. The Secura french press is another Amazon’s Choice product and it has received more than 5,800 positive reviews.
Although the Secura French Press comes with a 3-layered stainless steel filter structure, we still recommend using coarsely ground coffee. Consider pairing this gift with the JavaPress manual coffee grinder we included on our under $25 keto gift list.
Spiralizer Ultimate 7
Traditional wheat pasta is a definite no-no on keto, but noodles made from some of your favorite vegetables can be a tasty alternative. You can also make turnip chips as a substitute for higher carb traditional potato chips.
The Spiralizer Ultimate 7 is labeled as the strongest and heaviest duty spiralizer, and it is listed as Amazon’s Choice for spiralizers. It is also received a five star rating with more than 4,400 reviews, and comes with a lifetime replacement warranty.
Mueller Austria Ultra-Stick 500 Watt Immersion Blender
Blending smoothies and nut-butters, and whisking eggs or making coconut cream into frothy dairy-free whip cream is a cinch with the Mueller hand-held immersion blender.
Immersion blenders are super convenient and much easier to clean than more traditional blenders, and Mueller seems to have cornered the marked with the Austria Ulta-Stick.
What makes the Mueller Immersion Blender unique is its all copper engine which lasts 3 times as long as competitor models, and is comes with a 100% 2-year warranty. It is currently and Amazon bestseller and has received more than 4,000 positive reviews.
Crock-Pot 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker
A slow cooker is a staple item in almost any kitchen, but they are particularly useful for keto followers that like to prepare large batches of meats, stews, or soups to keep them on track all week.
Slow cookers have been around for decades and the technology is pretty basic, but Crock-Pot is the original slow cooker brand and it continues to find a way to stand out.
The removable stoneware and lid on this 6-Quart Programmable Crock-Pot are dishwasher safe, it has high and low cook settings, a warm setting, and the countdown control lets you set cook times anywhere from 30 minutes up to 20 hours.
This is another Amazon’s Choice product and has received more than 4,200 positive reviews.
NutriChef Vacuum Sealer
Now that you have prepared a large roast or a batch of pulled pork in your slow cooker, its time to store a little of it in the freezer for another day. Keep your holiday leftovers fresh for weeks or more by sealing them properly.
A food vacuum sealer makes a great gift for anyone that likes to do a little food prep for the week but doesn’t want to eat the same thing everyday. Vacuum sealed food lasts up to 5x longer than food in zipper baggies, and the two mode function of the NitriChef provides custom sealing options for solid foods and moist foods.
This kit comes with the NutriChef vacuum sealer, a wine stopper cork, 5 medium vacuum bags, and an extra long vacuum bag roll that can be used to create custom sized bags. Opt for the silver one and save more than $4.
12" Stone Earth Frying Pan By Ozeri
Ditch the chemicals and the oils with this stone derived non-stick pan. Stainless steel, or cast iron skillets are healthy cookware options, however they are not very convenient to maintain, and a considerable amount of oil is required to prevent food from sticking.
All oils degrade when heated even those with high smoke points like avocado oil. In fact because Avocado oil contains predominately monounsaturated fats it is less stable than high saturated fat oils like coconut oil, and shouldn’t be used for high-heat cooking at all. Check out our best oils to cook with chart for more details.
The Stone Earth frying pan is 100% free of APEO, genx, pfbs, PFOS, PFOA, and the lesser known chemicals NMP and NEP, however the manufacturer has acknowledged that this pan is not entirely PTFE-free.
PTFE is stable and nontoxic at temperatures below 500 degrees F. and this pan is specifically designed to create even heat distribution that allows it to cook effectively while using less heat.
The Stone Earth frying pan is Amazon’s Best seller in the category of Chef’s Pans, and has received nearly 3,000 positive reviews.
Hamilton Beach 10-Cup Food Processor
A good food processor is another staple of the keto kitchen, and it can be used to make more than just great guacamole.
This Hamilton Beach food processor is equipped with a powerful 450 watt engine, and comes with both a slicing and shredding blade, as well as a chopping ang processing blade.
A unique feature of this food processor is the bowl scraper attachment that pushes the food back towards the blades without having to remove the lid and mix the contents manually.
Ninja BL456 Blender
Ninja is quickly making a name for themselves in the blender market, and they offer some of the most versatile blender options.
With 900 watts of professional power the Ninja BL456 is great for creating thick delicious smoothies using frozen fruit and vegetables or ice. All parts are BPA-free and dishwasher safe.
Keto-Mojo Blood Ketone and Glucose Testing Kit
I’ll be honest, I haven’t used the Bluetooth option that comes with the Keto-Mojo, but I’m not much of a tech guy. I chose the Keto-Mojo because it is one of the most accurate and easy-to-use blood ketone and glucose meters, it comes with best in class customer support, and is the only meter that offers a lifetime warranty.
A blood ketone meter is the most accurate way to determine if you are in ketosis, and it is an essential tool for success while following keto.

No gift list is complete without the Instant Pot electric pressure cooker. The Instant Pot is the best selling Instant Pot model and America’s most popular multi-cooker.
The Instant Pot Duo multi-cooker combines 7 appliances in one: pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, saute pan, yogurt maker, and warmer.
There are several other multi-cooker options available on the market today, but none have the support that the Instant Pot have. There are literally dozens of cookbooks, and hundreds of recipes that have been created specifically for the Instant Pot.
Chefman Electric Warming Tray
You will definitely want to unwrap this gift before your guests arrive for Christmas dinner. The Chefman electric warming tray provides a large 21″ X 16″ warming surface, and adjustable temperature settings.
Ninja Air Fryer
Wait a minute, you can’t eat french fries on keto, why would someone on keto want an air fryer? Have you ever tried turnip or parsnip fries? They are low carb and a great alternative to traditional french fries.
Fries aren’t the only thing you can make in the Ninja air fryer. It is also great for making crispy chicken wings, dehydrating fruits, vegetables and jerky, cooking vegetables and casseroles and reheating food and keeping it crispy.
The Ninja Air Fryer is another Amazon’s Choice product and it has received more than 2,400 positive reviews.
Everlywell At-Home Food Sensitivity Test
Help your friends or family get a jump-start on the new year with Everlywell’s at-home food sensitivity test. Simply order online, the kit is sent to you, complete the test and send it back for analysis.
Food allergies are difficult to diagnose without testing, especially if you have more than one. More than 65% of the human population cannot digest dairy, and many others don’t realize that dairy is the cause of their fatigue, weight gain, or digestive discomfort. Dairy is an inflammatory food for anyone that eats it, but it can be particularly problematic for those who are sensitive to it.
The Everlywell food sensitivity test is our choice for food sensitivity tests, not only because it can be completed in the comfort of your own home, but because it tests several specific types of dairy products including cheddar cheese, cottage cheese, mozzarella, and yogurt, not just cow’s milk.
The standard Everlywell food sensitivity test ($159) measures reactivity to 96 different foods, or you can opt for the more comprehensive test option that tests 204 different foods.
Everlywell also offers hormone testing for men and women, thyroid testing, cholesterol testing, and much more.
Berkey Water Filter Systems
For drinking water in the US there are federal standards in place for most microorganisms, parasites, disinfectants, organic and inorganic chemicals, fluoride, lead, and radionuclides (radium and uranium), which is comforting to know, but those standards are generally not zero. Meaning, that set amounts of these concerning materials are permitted to remain in the water. When tested, many rural areas lack the infrastructure to meet these standards, and regulatory oversight is often lacking until something catastrophic happens.
There are also several other concerning toxins and carcinogens, such as perfluorooctanoic acid, methyl tert-butyl ether (a gasoline additive), perchlorate (present in fertilizers and fuel, and can cause thyroid problems at certain levels), radon, and pharmaceutical substances for which there are no federal standards yet in place.
Bottled water is even less regulated than municipal sources water. Bottled water has been recalled on several occasions over the years due to contamination by arsenic, bromate, cleaning compounds, mold and bacteria, and independent testing commonly detects chlorine, fluoride, aluminum, disinfectants, and pharmaceutical substances well above municipal water standards.
To add insult to injury, the plastic bottles themselves leech toxic substances like Bisphenol A (BPA), a potent and toxic estrogen-mimicking chemical, and endocrine disrupting pthalates, into their contents.
Give the gift of purified drinking water this year. Berkey is the global standard in water filters and has a wide variety of in-home and travel systems to meet all of your needs.
