For many, cooking and entertaining is more than just feeding family and friends—it’s a serious hobby and stress-reliever that requires focus, patience, experimentation, and the joy of sharing. DEMDACO curates a unique selection of gifts for cooks and entertainers that make the culinary experience and entertaining more fun, stylish, and engaging.

Over the years, we’ve introduced many other one-of-a-kind gifts for the culinary wiz in your life and great items for serving food at dinner parties and family gatherings.

Most cooks appreciate a clever kitchen helper and serving accessory that is both versatile and looks great. This easily expandable bamboo trivet makes a great addition for the kitchen and elsewhere in the house. When not in use, it’s designed to double as a beautiful wall art piece to accent any home décor. This one features the festive and heartwarming message, “Gather Together,” setting the tone for a special time with loved ones. As for functionality in the kitchen, trivets expand up to 12 inches and resist heats of up to 350 degrees.

Each features a unique design and sentiment, and seasonal Kitchen Boas honor family and friends coming together to celebrate meaningful relationships during the holidays. They also make great conversation pieces at seasonal parties!
