Amazon

Promising review: "Every piece is durable, functional, and made with the quality I have come to expect from this brand. This set stacks very nicely; all the pieces fit perfectly and stay together even when moving it around. What makes it exceptional and one of the things I love is the little extra features that add to the functionality and ease of use. The handles of each piece are a perfect size, being large enough to get a good hold, but not overly large to add a cumbersome side profile that takes up a lot of extra space. The handles are also wider than typical and slightly angle down, very nice design. The measuring cups have wide squared open middle handles that are very nice as well. The bottom of the large mixing bowl also has a rubber bottom to keep it from slipping while in use. Overall this a great set, very useful. I would definitely recommend." —Jillybean59226

15. A set of lightweight bamboo utensils with silicone handles built to be heat resistant and long lasting. They also have hanging holes for wall storage!

Promising review: "This is an amazing set of bamboo utensils!! Most people do not realize, but bamboo is an environmentally friendly way to go. Beyond that though these are the perfect size and weight to be your go-to utensil set. They resist stains and do not seem to pick up cooking odors like regular wooden spoons. These are safe for non-stick cook surfaces and they resist heat. I do not need to worry about forgetting and picking these up only to get burned. I love that because my kids help me cook often. Burns from metal utensils are no longer a reason for concern. The only thing to remember is to hand wash these." —Jodi FreedmanGet them from Amazon for $13.59.

Promising review: "This is my first bamboo drying rack and I love this thing! I bought it to replace a metal in-sink rack that had rusted at the joints and consequently broke, and this is much better. I love how fast things seem to dry on it, and it can hold quite a bit for its small size and light weight. I love that it folds up pretty flat so I can easily get my counter space back when it's not in use. I have been using it for a few weeks and have no complaints. I just lay a towel underneath it to catch any drips." —K. WilsonGet it from Amazon for $13.99.

20. An ice cube tray shaped like diamonds because square-shaped ice is boring and conventional. YOU DESERVE FUN ICE FOR YOUR FUN DRINKS!

I own a set of these and love them! They make really pretty diamonds each time, and are perfect for entertaining. Since they are made of silicone, they are pliable but not flimsy. Whenever I want to fill them, I open my freezer door first so I can use both hands to carry the molds. The raised borders prevent spills and each cube pops out easily. You can also use them to mold chocolate, pudding, or ice cream.

23. A portable slow cooker because it does all the cooking for you with literally zero effort on your part. Seriously. This is lazy chef 101.

With built-in clips, this slow cooker is spill-proof while traveling. The handles make it easy to carry while the removable stoneware center makes it easy to clean.Promising review: "I love this slow cooker. I ordered it online and it was perfect when it came. I got it because it had the clips to hold the lid on and since I take foods to events a lot, that was a very good feature. Once when I went to put it in my car, I somehow fell and dropped the slow cooker. After the fall, the lid was still on unbroken and not a scratch on the pot. I brought it in, cleaned up the lid, resealed it and was off to the party. I can't say enough good things about this slow cooker. Not only does the glass lid have the hooks to hold it to the pot, but the seal is very tight. This is a great pot and a perfect size." —FranGet it from Walmart for $24.96+ (available in five styles).

24. A copper-accented French press so you can get your caffeine fill without having an eyesore sitting on your counter day in and day out.

This French press brews a perfect cup of coffee in just four minutes! All you have to do is add ground coffee, hot water, and press. Promising review: "There are a few reasons why I especially like this particular press. Firstly, as a bachelor living alone, this is the perfect size. It makes 1–2 cups of coffee at a time. Secondly, it is extremely easy to clean. Other French presses fit very tight, and are quite difficult to take apart to the point where I've been afraid that the glass will break. The glass cup on this press slides out quite easily, and the stainless steel keeps it looking nice. It also feels very sturdy." —Child of IluvatarGet it from Amazon for $23.53+ (available in 10 finishes and 4 sizes).

You can fill this thing up with tap water and have clean, tasty water seconds later — it's that fast! And, you can stick it in the fridge for ice cold water on demand. This is seriously a great item, and the electronic day count on the lid is super helpful in keeping track of the filter's freshness. Overall, this is an awesome product." —Tiffany RodriguezGet it from Amazon for $25.99.
