American-Made Gifts for At-Home Cooks

Here are five American-made gifts for the at-home cook in your life:

1. Foodie Dice Tumbler Set* -- This dice set is a fun way to settle that everlong debate of what's for dinner. Includes five dice for the cooking method, protein, gran/carb, herb, and bonus ingredient plus four seasonal vegetable dice for each season. Comes in a tumbler made from an upcycled wine bottle. Also available as a Foodie Dice Pouch Set.

2. BeaterBlade for KitchenAid Mixer* -- Once you use this blade for your KitchenAid mixer, you won't want to go to back to the factory blade. It makes whipping up your favorite recipe a breeze.

3. The New Greenmarket Cookbook* -- Categorized by season, this cookbook features lots of recipes using fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy, and food items one might find at the NYC farmers' markets. By Gabrielle Langholtz; contributors include Martha Stewart, Mark Bittman, Mario Batali, Eric Ripert, and Daniel Boulud, just to name a few.

4. Michael Robbins 22" Rounded Maple Tapered Rolling Pin -- This beautiful French-style rolling pin is just the right tool to roll out some pierogi dough. Made in New York, sold by Hudson Made.

5. Farmhouse Pottery Maine Salt & Beehive Cellar with Spoon -- This Vermont-made salt cellar and Maine-harvested sea salt is something I would love to have sitting on the counter next to my stove. Made to order, comes carefully packaged in a Farmhouse Pottery logo-stamped wooden box with a gift card.
