Grill like a mother! While grilling gear might not be the first thing that comes to mind as gift ideas for the moms and mom-like figures in our lives, “manning the grill” is not a task reserved only for men.

The Weber Genesis EPX-335 is a gas-fired, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi-enabled, patio-dominating centerpiece—basically one of the best smart gas grills you can get Mom. Some people are “wandering cooks” moving from the grill to the kitchen for more slices of cheese or to grab that extra marinade sauce, so even if she’s not standing directly in front of the grill. All the neighbors will be jealous, so you’d better invite them over for dinner. You can roast, bake, steam, or even stir-fry inspiring food you never thought possible on the grill just by replacing the cooking grate, and thanks to the “night vision” LED lighting, the Genesis EPX-335 creates a full backyard culinary experience.

Let’s face it, Mom is probably the organizing queen, from the kitchen cabinets to the bathroom closet shelves. This multipurpose accessory will certainly come in handy for prepping food. When fully extended, the outside dimensions are about 20.5 by 16 inches, the inside is about 16 by 14.5 by 5.5 inches so it’s got a good capacity; large enough to prep a pork butt because it offers a place to work and shake rub on. The tub opens to three levels: full depth, mid depth, and if pushed it all the way down it becomes a cutting board with built in juice channels. When collapsed, it can conveniently be stored out of the way.
