What to Get Your Dad This Father's Day
We know he doesn't need another new tie or whisky rocks, but Dad deserves something great for Father's Day all the same. These foolproof options will impress him and the whole family, from carbon steel cooking tools and a wine club membership to chocolate truffles and chili olive oil. Read on for 16 great things to share with the father in your life.
Pro Knife Set
If Dad is stuck with a blunt set of knives, upgrade the kitchen arsenal with a set from Zwilling that won't stain, chip, or dull for years. The edge retention is unparalleled and will make everything from carving to ingredient prep a breeze.

Carbon Steel Grill Pan
Lighter than typical cast iron and stronger than any nonstick, carbon steel is perfect for heavy-duty grilling in the backyard or campsites. Dad will never lose his asparagus or peppers between the grill grates again.

Two-in-One Coffee Maker
Make a cup or a carafe with this Cuisinart tool. The thermal carafe is vacuum-sealed and double-walled to keep coffee hot for hours and offers a self-start, self-clean, and a "bold" setting for family members that like a stronger dose. The single-server also works with K-cups or your own preferred grounds.
Smart Meat Thermometer
MEATER Plus is an all-new version of the original remote meat thermometer with an app connection. It has a 165-foot range (so your smoker or grill doesn't need to overwhelm your guests close by). It's dishwasher-safe, and the prob can read both internal meat temps and the external temperature of the grill for the perfect doneness. The smart estimator algorithm will also tell you how long it has to go, so you can plan your leisure time accordingly.

This tool is one of our favorite pizza ovens and comes in either a gas or wood-burning version. The Ooni gets up to 950 degrees and will cook a 12-inch pizza in just 60 seconds, like a real brick oven. It's small enough to fit on any patio table and easy to store when the weather turns (though we'd recommend making pizza year-round).

Any outdoorsman will appreciate a nearly indestructible cooler, and this one will keep things cool even in 100-degree heat all day long. It's an investment your loved ones will thank you for over and over again.
