    I hate measuring spoons that come on a keyring, because if you dirty one, you need to wash the whole lot. Not with these! You simply detach whichever tools you need and leave the rest sparkling clean. They're also dishwasher safe, so you don't need to spend your precious time trying to scrub off flour or honey.

    I 👏 love 👏 this 👏 blender 👏. I crush a lot of cashews for salad dressings and nut milks and this baby does it with ease. It also comes with three cups, so I don't have to do dishes immediately after making one thing. I can just rinse the blade, switch the cup, and get to blending something else. Speaking of cups, it comes with three, and two of them have sipping lids, so my boyfriend and I can take our smoothies to go. There's also one flat lid, which is great if you want to store your culinary creations in the fridge.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $189.99.

    18. A divided cutlery holder that'll stack your forks, knives, and spoons on top of each other. It'll only take up a fraction of your drawer, so you'll have more space for cooking tools and knickknacks.

    I have one of these and it's great for a kitchen with minimal counter space. Once my dishes are done drying, I just fold it up and pop it into a drawer. It has an elastic that wraps around it to keep everything together, so it doesn't spring open on you when it's not in use.
