Coffee and espresso makers
For under $40, this stainless steel, double-wall insulated press looks like it costs a lot more. Designed to brew to just the right temperature, the insulation in this press keeps a brew hot three times longer than lesser makers. And its 34 oz. capacity can whip up two to three large cups per batch so Dad can power through his morning.
Crafted to brew on virtually any stovetop surface, including glass induction, this durable stainless steel maker is no regular coffee maker. With quality construction in addition to brewing up to 6 cups per batch, this premium maker brews a thicker, richer stovetop espresso than those traditional percolator models.
For fans of cold brew, this system can help Dad bump it up a notch for some nitro. This maker pumps in nitrous oxide or nitrogen to the brewing process, which cuts down on acidity, creates a Guinness-style cold brew froth and gives the joe a seriously unique taste. And it's naturally sweet, so no need for sugar or dairy either.
Gourmia GCM7800 Brewdini 5-Cup Cold Brew Coffee Maker – $111.99 after code WELOVEDAD; originally $149
Speaking of cold brews, regular cold brews usually take as much as 24 hours before Dad's ready to drink. With the sneaky vacuum tech inside the Brewdini, you can set the brew strength through the unit's LCD display, then watch as the cold brew process that should take a full day happens while you watch in only minutes.
Speed is also the name of the game with this Sirena model, which can take a double espresso from zero to ready in just 90 seconds. With a twin brewing array as well as a solid milk frother, the Prestige has your long-term pleasure in mind, regulating the built-in cup warmer so you're never stuck drinking lukewarm coffee or espresso.
An iF Design award winner, the Seven and Me is a dual-function espresso maker and milk frother sporting five pre-programmed brewing modes to whip up just about anything, including a creamy latte, a silky cappuccino, a more robust macchiato, or an espresso with a kick. The brewing time, pressure, and heating are all perfectly controlled so you get a consistently great coffee with each brew.

Maybe Dad is ready to try sous vide cooking, which drops vacuum-sealed food in a precision heated water bath for a perfect slow cook. This multi-cooker uses DualAccuTemp technology for perfectly even cooking temperatures so every item gets just the cook it needs.

The grill and beyond
Here's everything Dad needs to do a backyard grill session right from top to bottom. This collection features a pair of tongs, a carving fork, a carving knife, skewers, a spatula, and a basting brush, with everything arrayed in a compact, carrying case. Made from food-grade, dishwasher-safe stainless steel, this kit will definitely get Dad experimenting, and that's all the better for you.
The dual-sensor probe makes sure Dad never has to guess again about the temperature of the grill or whether meat is fully cooked. This probe charges in five minutes and can last for up to 12 hours, syncing with a phone to get a precise read on the current temperature of the cooking chamber or the meat. And if Dad is ready to cook his own rotisserie chicken, this is the instrument to make sure he nails it.
The double-layered, wood-burning pizza oven is not only portable, but it can also fire up to a scorching 800 degrees to turn out an evenly cooked homemade pizza in about 5 minutes. While pizza is its main passion, this pellet oven is just as at home tackling meats too, grilling up steak, fish, lamb chops, burgers, and more with precision.
Grilling, smoking, baking, roasting, braising, and more, this barbecue wood fire pellet grill does it all. With the expandable upper warming rack, this grill gives Dad over 570 square inches of cooking surface to do his thing, all while the PID technology precisely maintains the temperature between 180 to 450°F for the most consistent cooking possible. There's even a galvanized bucket to catch all the drippings and keep all those grease stains off Dad's patio — because that would be a dealbreaker.

Dad's eyes are going to pop just looking at the specs, which can be expected considering the Otto Lite can go from zero to a scalding 1,500°F in just three minutes. The twin simultaneously controlled radiant infra-red burners offer an ultra-precise control over temperatures, while the OverFire burners cook from above, eliminating flare-ups or nasty charring.
