Appalachian Cast Iron-Great American Waffle Iron 

Dads across America love their country, but love their waffles too! What a great time to buy dad his very own cast iron waffle maker by Appalachian Cast Iron Company! Created by a DAD who is a veteran and Made in the USA, this waffle maker is unlike any on the market today, though designed like the ones you can find in an antique store, IF you can find one. Made to last for many generations each iron is hand-finished and seasoned by the company owner. Not only that, when you cook with cast iron, you get evenly heat for perfect waffles and a little bit of iron gets cooked into the waffle! The ball-and-socket joint for flipping and stay-cool spring handle mean that despite the sturdy contraction, kids can help make breakfast too! Much thought went into the design with the field of 50 stars on the inside and a bald eagle and shield on the lid!

Invented by a mother-daughter team in Colorado, Basquettes can be used both in the oven and on the grill to air-fry, roast, crisp, rotisserie, dehydrate, grill and smoke. This revolutionary product is a set of patent-pending, stainless steel stacking baskets with adjustable tops and removable legs. The idea for Basquettes came when the duo first saw a bulky air-fryer with a tiny cooking basket. They decided to develop a heat-efficient, heat-conducting basket that would work in a conventional or convection oven, so you wouldn’t need a huge air-fryer taking up precious counter space. However, after building dozens of prototypes, this multi-functional kitchen and grill tool – also known as The Everything Basket – now replaces not one but eight single-use, counter-hogging gadgets.

Perfect for the dad who loves to grill, Basquettes can be used as grill baskets for seafood and veggies, and turns a standard grill into a fast smoker or a rotisserie. For the cooking Dad, Basquettes turns a wall oven into a high-capacity air fryer, plus Dad can rapidly cook and roast multiple levels of food with 50% less grease than sheet pan cooking.

Wild Planet

Introduce dad to a new sustainable canned tuna. Most of the tuna on grocery shelves is caught by mainstream commercial fishing methods that not only threaten the health of our oceans but also negatively impact other marine animals, coastal fishing communities and potentially even the food supply for future generations. 

Wild Planet tuna is 100% pole & line-caught – a method that involves catching one fish at a time. (Don’t be fooled by brands that say their tuna is “wild caught.” That just means it was caught in the ocean and not farmed.) 

Choosing pole and line-caught tuna from Wild Planet – the first company to promote pole & line fishing at scale, will not only protect other sea animals, but also prevents over-fishing and supports independent fishers and their communities.
