Gifts for the Mom Who:

Loves to bake
The KitchenAid Professional 6500 Design Series mixer ($550) was excellent at whipping cream, mixing large batches of cookie dough, and kneading bread dough. It also accepts an assortment of power attachments, including a pasta maker and food grinder. It comes with a whisk, flat beater, and dough hook.

Cooks with fresh ingredients
Thanks to its superb performance chopping onions, slicing celery, shredding cheese and carrots, and grating Parmesan cheese, the Breville Sous Chef BFP800XL/A ($325) is a top food processor for making hearty dips and chopping raw ingredients. And it’s surprisingly quiet. It can hold as much as 16 cups, but also has a convenient mini-bowl attachment for smaller batches.

The Vitamix 5200 is one of Consumer Reports Mother's Day gift ideas

Wants to juice without a juicer
One of our top-scoring blenders, the Vitamix 5200 ($450) can turn whole fruits and vegetables into a smooth creamy juice in just a minute. In our tests, we used apple, carrot, orange, pineapple, ice, and water. This versatile blender also excels at puréeing and is one of the few models that makes hot soup.

Enjoys a good cup of coffee
It’s a snap for the DeLonghi Nescafé Dolce Gusto Genio EDG455T coffeemaker ($81) to make one cup of coffee. Cup speed and size consistency are top-notch, and the unit is easy to use, refill, and clean. It can also make subsequent cups quickly and consistently. But true coffee lovers may prefer the taste of freshly ground coffee made in a drip machine. For that try the Cuisinart Perfec Temp DCC-2800 ($100).

Appreciates fine wine
Maintaining a uniform temperature is key to preserving the flavor of any wine. In our tests of wine chillers, the Haier WC200GS ($899) delivered very good temperature performance and energy efficiency.
