Ciao Christmas Gift Ideas: Cookware

It's getting to be that time of year when you start planning your Christmas gift lists. This year Mary Ann Esposito and Ciao Italia are putting together a few different gift recommendations for the cooks, chefs, and foodies on your list.

The following are Mary Ann's cookware gift suggestions.  As you can see, she loves just about all of the All-Clad products, the Le Creuset products, and the Gastroflex muffin and cake forms.  If you don't see something here you like, you might find another product from those companies that suits you.

Over the next few weeks we'll show you her suggestions for appliances, kitchen tools, and kitchen storage.
