Cooking Gifts for Mom

MISSION, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- (Family Features) From those irresistible homemade cookies to favorite meals that always warm the heart; no one knows their way around the kitchen quite like mom. While thinking of what to give your favorite lady for Mother's Day this year, consider gifts that allow her to tap into her inner foodie, chef or baker.

Everyone knows the best gifts are those that keep on giving. Cook for the Cure, a 13-year partnership between KitchenAid and Susan G. Komen®, has raised more than $9.5 million for the fight against breast cancer. In 2014, KitchenAid will donate $450,000 or more to Komen through the Cook for the Cure program, regardless of sales. The Cook for the Cure product collection, ranging from pink stand mixers and blenders to pink food choppers and hand blenders, is an easy way to give thanks to mom, and raise awareness towards a cause that affects so many women.

For other gift ideas that help support the cause, visit www.KitchenAid.com and http://CookfortheCure.KitchenAid.com/.

Simply Adorable Serveware
Featuring artwork by PBS cooking show host Jacques Pepin, the Pass the Plate serving platter generates a $5 donation each time one of these individually numbered platters is passed and registered online. Plus, participants can also track its travels. With its fresh and cheery design, this unique serving piece makes sharing even more fun. A great gift for mom, the platter ($24.95) is available at Villeroy & Boch stores or by calling 1-888-886-8318.

Blending Style with Power
With its roomy, 60-ounce patented diamond pitcher design and stainless steel blades, the 5-Speed Diamond Blender in Raspberry Ice creates a powerful vortex to thoroughly blend everything from soups to smoothies. Automatic Soft Start technology pulls ingredients into the blade rather than splattering them outward, keeping them together for controlled blending. This colorful blender ($179.99) offers stir, chop, puree, liquefy and pulse options -- everything mom needs to create her favorite dishes.

An Essential, Everyday Tool
If some of her best culinary creations include savory sauces and delicious dips, Mother's Day is the perfect opportunity to treat mom to an upgrade. This 3.5-cup Food Chopper in Cranberry is convenient for everyday use and takes up minimal space in the kitchen. With two speed settings and one-touch chop and puree options, this chopper ($49.99) is ideal for creating a scrumptious salsa, creamy hummus or tangy pesto sauce.

Timeless Kitchen Addition
Add a pop of pink to mom's kitchen with a classic gift that will last for years. With a 5-quart capacity bowl, the Artisan Series stand mixer can handle multiple batches of dough, while its 10 speed settings allow cooks to knead, mix and whip a variety of foods and ingredients. With additional attachments that can make everything from pasta to ice cream, this mixer ($429.99) let's mom bake to her heart's content.

Handy Little Helper
Whether you need to blend up a milkshake or puree cooked vegetables directly in the pot, this 2-Speed Hand Blender in Cranberry gets the job done with ease. Two speeds provide blending control for more delicate foods, such as smoothies and baby food. The blending arm twists off for quick and easy cleanup. This hand blender ($59.99) comes with a 3-cup BPA-free jar with lid, so mom can blend away, safely.
