2021’s most unique gift for the couple is Basquettes: the all-in-one tool that lets you air-fry, grill, smoke, roast, rotisserie, dehydrate, crisp and cool all of your favorite foods.
Finding the perfect gift makes the holidays extra stressful especially this year with the shortages of goods; the uncertainty of the ongoing pandemic; and the rising inflation. What would people like this year? How about cookware/grillware that makes cooking and grilling easier, faster and healthier? How about cookware/grillware that you can use in the both the oven and grill, and that is dishwasher and metal utensil safe?
Basquettes, The Everything Basket, is the answer! Basquettes is comprised of two multi-functional and multi-positional nesting baskets, each of different heights, that feature removable and adjustable tops, plus patent-pending intertwining legs, allowing users to easily stack, flip and cook multiple levels of different foods at the same time. This six-piece set allows the user to mix and match the pieces to achieve endless cooking and grilling possibilities. The Everything Basket is a multi-use tool that replaces several single-use, counter hogging gadgets like air-fryers, dehydrators, rotisserie ovens, indoor grills, grill baskets, smokers and more.
“We are all looking for better, more enjoyable ways to make delicious healthy foods,” said Lauren Wilmot, the 28-year-old president of Basquettes.
“When my mom, who is also my business partner, and I first saw a bulky air-fryer with a tiny cooking basket, we knew we could create something better! An air-fryer is just a heating element like your oven, so we decided we needed something we could use in our existing oven. The original idea was to make a high-capacity basket set that could be stacked to accommodate enough food for a crowd and could be easily flipped over in one motion. However, as we made prototypes and had our friends and family test them and give suggestions, we expanded the functionality to make them work on the grill too. This meant we had to make the legs removable. That was a major engineering feat. We’ve loved trying out new ways to use Basquettes, like when we realized you could rotisserie a chicken in the oven or grill!”
“As versatile as it is innovative, Basquettes empowers you to unleash your culinary creativity,” said Elizabeth Wilmot, vice president of Basquettes.
“We love smoking foods on our smoker but it takes a long time to heat up and we usually don’t have that much time. So instead, we place a foil packet of flavored hardwood under the baskets with the legs attached and boom – we have smoked foods. Chicken wings are our favorite! I also love making beef jerky for my son-in-law. I marinated a bunch of beef then slow cooked it in the oven using both baskets and the tops as racks to make him a huge tray of jerky with spicy seasoning which is his favorite. You can do so many things with The Everything Basket! It really is the perfect holiday gift!”
