    35 Products Under $15 That'll Help Make Cooking So Much Easier

    Tools that'll help make you feel like you could possibly audition for the next season of Chopped.

    1. A peeler that'll be so a-peel-ing to use for fruits, veggies, and even cheese, rather than just trying to make do with a regular knife.

    2. A mini waffle maker because sleeping in on Saturday morning is even better when you wake up and make waffles for breakfast in a matter of minutes. It'll *almost* feel like you're staying at a five-star hotel.

    3. A Whisk Wiper Pro because while licking the entire whisk *sounds* like a good idea, this little tool will *actually* get it clean way easier than just sticking it in the water and hoping for the best.

    4. A pair of shredder claws — you might feel like Wolverine when you use them to shred meat in seconds. Just don't start to think your superpowers expand to other things as well—sorry, you still can't run as fast as the Flash.

    5. A ravioli maker – once you try it, you'll probably never go back to buying the pre-made variety from the store ever again. Homemade past is just THAT good. Trust me.

    6. A pack of grilled cheese bags to revolutionize how you make that delicious sandwich. Say goodbye to using the stove and hello to gooeyness in minutes using only your toaster.

    7. A spiralizer that won't put you in a downward ~spiral~ – all you have to do is twist a zucchini to make delicious zoodles (zucchini noodles) or other type of vegetable noodles for a weeknight dinner.

    8. A three-in-one avocado tool because just like guac, you're extra! And you deserve a tool to make handling avocados so much easier.

    9. A strainer designed to make draining pasta a snap because all you have to do is clip it to the pot and dump the water out.

    10. A spaghetti measuring tool because sometimes you are as hungry as a horse and need to know how much pasta they eat.

    11. A patty press so all you have to do is buy some ground beef at the store and then make delicious burgers in a matter of minutes without getting your hands totally dirty.

    12. A silicone baking mat that'll make baking a breeze and eliminate your need for oil, sprays, or parchment paper.

    13. An apple slicer with 16 slices – it's perfect for when you're making an apple pie or crisp, or if you just prefer smaller pieces for your afternoon snack.

    14. A silicone trivet so versatile, it'll work harder than *you* do in the kitchen. Say goodbye to struggling to open a jar (nobody has time for that anyway).

    15. A pie shield so you can impress your relatives even more than you already do when you show up with a delicious, beautiful homemade pie on your first try (instead of bringing a few "first drafts" where someone always end up with burnt edges).

    16. A 5-in-1 utensil – it's a slotted spoon, solid spoon, spatula, turner, and cutting tool in one, which means you can basically make a whole meal and only have one utensil to clean when you're done! And isn't that the dream?!?

    17. A microwave omelet pan designed to make you a yummy meal in a matter of minutes. Just put eggs, veggies, meat, and cheese into the dish, stick it in the microwave, and you'll be G2G.

    18. A dessert decorator that'll be the ~icing on the cake~, I mean cupcake, as you'll be able to frost a whole batch perfectly. People may even think you got them from a fancy-schmancy bakery.

    19. A silicone pastry mat for when you're on a ~roll~ around the holidays and need to make cookies, pies, and other baked goods for all the parties you have to attend. This will help you measure everything so it turns out exactly how you want it to.

    20. A fish and veggie steamer – you just put your dinner in it, and it will be ready faster than it would take Seamless to even process your order.

    21. A citrus juicer with a domed lid with measurements so you know exactly how much juice you're putting in your recipe instead of just throwing some in and shrugging while saying, "ehh, close enough."

    22. A three-in-one egg separator because I can't be the only one who has had to start a recipe over multiple times because an egg yolk or shell has accidentally made its way into the bowl.

    23. A can strainer you just put on the top of the can to get the juice out so you don't have to get your big colander out of the cabinet for just a tiny can of beans.

    24. A herb mincer, roller, and slicer designed to ~cut~ the time it takes you to mince herbs in half, and also so you know that when a recipe calls for something minced, you'll actually be able to mince said ingredient.

    25. An egg timer designed to tell you exactly when your eggs are hard boiled so you don't have to sit and stare at the water because that's almost as exciting as waiting for water boil in the first place.

    26. An angled measuring cup so you'll never have to eyeball the ingredients for a recipe again.

    27. A tool designed to help you prep cauliflower faster (and safer) than it is just using a regular ol' knife.

    28. A garlic peeler that looks kinda strange, but actually does wonders for removing the skin on garlic cloves.

    29. A dumpling maker so you can impress all of your friends at your next potluck when you show up with your delicious homemade dumplings. They'll think you worked so much harder than you did. It's okay, your secret is safe with me.

    30. A pineapple corer for anyone who has given up on eating a delicious ripe pineapple because the fruit was just too hard to cut. It's okay, I understand.

    31. A RubAway bar you use to scrub your hands to get rid of all those unpleasant cooking smells (i.e. fish, garlic, etc.) that you usually attempt to get rid of by washing your hands approximately 10 times before you give up with a frustrated "UGHHH!"

    32. A funnel pitcher to a make pouring batter easier...or even for watering your plants. This tool doesn't discriminate. It works for all sorts of things.

    33. An onion holder designed to keep the onion in place as you cut the perfectly sized strips you've been trying (but failing) to achieve for years.

    34. A silicone baking mold so you can make delicious brownies in a small size because sometimes all people want is a small taste.

    35. And a sharpener to keep your knives in tip-top shape so you don't end up chopping a pepper for an extra 15 minutes because your knife is so dull it can barely cut through the skin.
