Chang, who opened his latest Momofuku restaurant Kawi in April, curated an impressive list of favorite kitchen tools, appliances, ingredients, and more. We asked Chang for his favorite picks below, but head here to see the whole list.
Lodge Cast Iron Skillet
"This is my go-to gift. You can use it for everything from steaks to baking. As long as you take care of it, it'll easily last generation to generation."
Mauviel Copper Cookware
"My gift for cooks who have everything is Mauviel copper cookware. It's a great conductor of heat and cooks beautifully. Plus, doesn't hurt that it looks great in your kitchen."

"The Victorinox 4-in Swiss Classic Paring Knife and the Serrated Knife are incredible, cheap tools to keep in your kitchen. Both are tremendously versatile: strong enough to withhold repeated use by the most avid home cook while also being inexpensive enough for someone just getting started in the kitchen."
