From a cold brew system that helps you brew enough coffee for a week in one batch, to two gadgets that will help you make perfect pies, to the best gravy separator ever, culinary expert Christopher Kimball is here to share his must-have gadgets this holiday season.

Toddy Cold Brew System

This cold brew gadget takes its inspiration from a practice that was done regularly in the 19th century, when people would mix cold water and course-ground coffee and let it sit overnight. This gadget will help you make enough coffee to least for a whole week, because it’s concentrated and you dilute it 3-to-1 before drinking.

Trudeau Gravy Separator

Christopher recommends this a very simple and elegant, but “cheap and cheerful” as Rachael puts it, gravy separator.

Back to Basics Apple Peeler from FarmAndFleet.com

This amazing and fun gadget enables you to peel and slice your apples at the same time, simply by turning a handle! This would make prepping an apple pie ... easy as pie!

Mrs. Anderson’s Easy Pie Crust Maker

If you love making homemade pie crust, but don’t like the mess, and have a hard time getting it into a good circle shape, you need this gadget. It’s basically a round plastic zip up bag that you put your crust in, then roll out through the plastic. Genius!
