    1. A OXO Good Grips three-in-one avocado slicer that cuts, de-pits, and creates ~perfect~ slices quickly and easily.

    The avocado slicer

    The "blade" slices through avocado skin with ease, the stainless-steel pitter removes the pit with a quick twist, and the slicer cuts seven identical pieces for a picture-perfect presentation.

    Promising review: "Avocado? Yes, Please! This tool is awesome. Easy to cut open the fruit. Pit remover works well, just push onto the pit and give it a twist, and the pit pops right out. The best part is the slicer. Makes beautiful slices for a great presentation. The tool can then be used to scrape any remaining fruit out of the skin. Really happy I bought this tool!" –NPR Man

    Price: $9.99

    2. A set of 16 reusable stainless steel straws with removable silicone tips that are cute as hell, dishwasher-safe, and reduce plastic waste. Do it for the sea turtles!,

    You can easily stash straws in your bag with the included black velvet carrying pouch. You get four types of straws to accommodate all cups and thin cleaning brushes and you can stick both the straws and the tips in the dishwasher.

    Promising review: "Saving the planet one straw at a time! I like to make sure I buy products that don't cause environmental harm and plastic straws are a huge culprit. Any small steps I can take to reduce the amount of garbage my home/family generates I'll take them. I keep a few in both cars so trips to the drive-thru are covered. I just tell them I don't need a straw so I'm not responsible for it's disposal. I like that there are multiple sizes and colors of silicone tips. I'm happy with this purchase." –melsp07

    Price: $7.99+ (available in four colors)

    3. A cute three-tiered metal cart that would make a great bar cart, coffee station, pantry organizer, cookbook shelf, or use it to store appliances and cookware. You can dream up endless uses for it!

    Reviewer's picture of the rolling cart

    A powder-coated steel frame and mesh bottoms make this utility cart extremely sturdy and durable while the heavy-duty casters (two are lockable) make it easy to maneuver in and out of tight spaces.

    Promising review: " My work-from-home buddy! After months of working from home at the kitchen table, I decided I needed to get control of work stuff. All my pens, my calculator, etc., now live in this. At the end of the day, most everything is rounded up and wheeled around the corner. I should have gotten this six months ago!" –CeeCee58

    Price: $39.99 (available in five colors)

    4. A set of three nonstick baking sheets to replace the huge stack of warped, scratched pans that sound like a car wreck every time you have to rifle through them.

    The three baking sheets with silicone handles

    This dishwasher-safe coating ensures food doesn't stick and minimal cleanup. And, the red silicone handles provide grip and keep hands safe.

    Promising review: "This baking pan nonstick set is very good quality, especially for its price. I've already recommended them to my family. This bakeware set is nice and heavy, they didn't warp when I baked a cake on it. Cooking is so much more enjoyable when you have quality cookware to work with and these deep baking pans definitely fall into that category. I will definitely be buying more baking pans in the future. I have used them more than 10 times now, no rust or bending." –Nikki

    Price: $22.29+ (available in ten sizes)

    5. A grease splatter screen that literally every household on earth should own. This ingenious tool keeps grease, oil, and sauce splatters off of your stove, floor, clothing, and counters.

    Do you get food stains on your clothing every time you cook? Do you loathe cleaning stinky grease splatters from your stove every day? Well, this is the tool for you! This stainless steel splatter screen is not only dishwasher safe but it's designed with resting feet on one side to keep your counters clean while you flip 'dat bacon.

    Promising review: "I ordered this to help with our cast iron skillet on the stove top. Cooking bacon was a nightmare with all the grease splattering out of the pan while cooking. I was told about this product and ordered it ASAP. It is full of magic I swear. The splatter problem is soooo much better which makes the clean up almost nonexistent. It is sturdy and when you need to pull it off the hot pan, it is cool to the touch. This is awesome for anyone who doesn't like grease ALL over their stove top." –Laurie F

    Price: $10.90+ (available in three sizes)

    6. A tiered shelf organizer so you can see all your cans and jars because, apparently, pantries and cabinets were designed for giants.

    Reviewer's picture of the three-level organizer being used for cans in their pantry

    The concept of bleachers works for arenas, now make it work in your kitchen! The tiered design allows you to easily find cans, jars, spices, and condiments in pantries and cabinets without needing a step ladder. Now, go. Proudly display that container of stale fried onions from three Thanksgivings ago.

    Promising review: "I love it. It allows me to see the bottles better than search through the whole cabinet and take everything out. The padding on the shelf also helps keeps the bottles from sliding/moving off." –Anyssa R.

    Price: $6.99

    7. An insulated tumbler that comes in a million colors and performs just as well, or better than, a much pricier Yeti.

    Reviewer holding their tall tumbler in pink to teal ombre design

    The double-walled vacuum insulation keeps your drinks hot or cold for hours and hours, even overnight. (I often wake up to find that there are still whole ice cubes in my cup!) This style tumbler is made of stainless steel and includes two plastic straws and two plastic lids (all BPA-free). One lid is for use with the straw and the other has a flip lid.

    Promising review: " This cup out cups all others. This cup is literally the best cup I have ever had and I have tried so many over the years. The seal around this straw is like some sort of magic technology, seriously I filled this cup with coffee at 7 a.m., fastened the top with a straw hole (it comes with two different top types and an extra straw!), and inserted the straw. At 10 a.m. I started getting super sluggish on my second Zoom call of the day and realized I had forgotten to drink my coffee! I was just sure that after sitting on my counter for three hours that my coffee was a ruined waste, so I picked up the cup, unscrewed the top with the straw still inserted to pour it out, and start again when STEAM warmed my face! I screwed the top back on and started to sip and was nearly burned by my 3-hours-old, piping hot, fresh-tasting coffee!!!! I am a believer! This tried-and-true vessel is now my staple cup for all-day sipping!!!!! I'm going to buy the hubby one of his own because I refuse to share." –Mlkthemom

    Price: $18.99+ (available in four sizes and thirty-two colors)

    8. A set of three Pyrex glass mixing bowls because they're practically indestructible and look super profesh.

    The mixing bowls

    Pyrex is some sort of magical glass forged using lightning and witchcraft, so you will own these bowls forever. The thick tempered glass bowls can be used to mix and are attractive enough to serve out of. Plastic and metal bowls have limitations, but Pyrex is safe for use in the oven, dishwasher, microwave, and freezer and never absorbs stains or odors.

    Promising review: The size of these bowls are as follows: The small size looks GREAT for dips like guacamole or homemade salsa. The middle bowl is perfect for fruit salad or putting veggies out at a party. The large bowl is a GREAT mixing bowl size. I'm in love with these. I love the lip on the edge as it makes for easier grabbing when these bowls are coming in or out of the fridge, oven or microwave. Overall, love these bowls! Great product by Pyrex!" –BirdNerdGirl

    Price: $12.96

    9. A set of eight microfiber kitchen towels that have a tea towel look but actually do an amazing job of drying.

    The kitchen towels

    These plush, oversized towels are made of super-absorbent microfiber perfect for drying dishes, hands, and spills. When they eventually get too gnarly to display, you can demote them to cleaning and dusting cloths!

    Promising review: "These are the BEST towels!!! This can be extremely wet and still dry a ceramic plate! They are thick, but you can still manipulate them to dry the inside of a cup. They also are nice enough to be used as placemats, I am truly happy with these!! I've bought bamboo, cotton, and other microfiber towels, but these are the best!!" –Angela A

    Price: $17.99 (available in five colors)

    10. A handheld, battery-operated milk frother for fluffy foam that'll make you feel like a professional barista.

    Reviewer's picture of frothy iced coffee with five-star caption "amazing!"

    In 20 seconds, this handy frother will turn a small pour of milk (including nut and plant-based milk) into a rich, fluffy foam for coffeeshop quality drinks. Use it to make lattes, cappuccinos, macchiatos, flat whites, and to whisk matcha. It also works to blend powdered drinks that don't want to dissolve. And, there's virtually no cleanup, just run it under water and give it a gentle pulse.

    Promising review: "LOVE IT!! This has upped my coffee game. I heat my milk and creamer for about 30 seconds then froth for about 10–15 seconds. It’s delicious and I feel so fancy! I just run the frother under running water and then spin it for a second and it dries itself. I like that it’s battery operated because I have too many cords on my counter already. Also, it looks nice sitting out with my coffee supplies. The company sent me an email saying there’s a lifetime warranty so you can’t beat that. Oh, and it blends my protein powder easily and so there are no more clumps of powder at the bottom. Game-changer!" –Mel

    Price: $15.25 (available in twenty-eight colors)

    11. A sleek Simplehuman dish drying rack that's compact yet holds a ton of dishes and has a pivoting drain spout so you don't get bacteria-laden tray sludge.

    Reviewer's picture of the drying rack holding many dishes, pots, and mugs

    Let's be honest, most dish drying racks are fugly. However, this one has clean lines and functional features that make it worth every penny. The deep stainless steel frame is fingerprint-proof while the plastic tray has an anti-residue hydrophilic coating that helps it to dry faster. And, the feature that has users raving is the integrated drip tray with a swiveling drain spout that allows you to drain water directly into your sink. No more tray sludge or limescale buildup!

    Promising review: "Better than all the rest. Okay, first off I love the look. The stylish clean modern look is just amazing. Second, I love the legs. They are high enough and come with non-slip rubber covers. Third, I absolutely love the spout which is perfectly angled to let the water drain and stick out long enough to allow the water to drain into the sink and only into the sink, unlike other dish racks that have just a simple lip that barely passes over the rim of the sink and sometimes allows the water to drip under and back causing a puddle underneath the rack. It's nice that you can rotate the water spout at any angle and on any side of this dish rack which makes it very versatile. So, if you just don’t want to spend a bit more for a nice rack then get one of those other ones. But if you want a really nice dish rack without any of the headaches or flaws of the others then get this one. You’ll love it." –Aireal

    Price: $49.97+ (available in two sizes)

    12. A two-in-one lemon and lime juicer – it's easy to use, looks good, and will clear up some space in your utensil drawer.


    This hand juicer eliminates the need for separate juicing tools that ultimately clutter your drawer. And, it's dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "I use the squeezer at least three times a day. I was surprised by how high of quality it is. It's made of metal and seems to be powder coated, giving it a smooth, beautiful look and feel. It's easy to compress, regardless of hand size because there's enough room for both. This is a two-part press where the smaller limes are placed and squeezed inside the green cup. With the larger lemons, you flip the green cup up and you place the lemons in the bottom yellow cup. Who knew?!" –Doug

    Price: $14.99 (available in eight colors)

    13. A Stasher reusable silicone storage bag, because they're super cute and environmentally friendly.

    The Stasher silicone bags

    Kick single-use plastic bags to the curb! Stasher's reusable, food-grade silicone bags are the environmentally responsible alternative to storage bags that end up in landfills and oceans. They're air-tight so you can use them to marinade and sous vide. They're also safe in the freezer, microwave, dishwasher, and oven up to 400 degrees.

    Promising review: "The best storage bags I've used. For food storage, these bags can't be beaten in my opinion. They're much easier to use than plastic or glass containers with lids and so much more durable than Ziploc bags (and better for the environment, too). I bought them in multiple sizes and use them for anything and everything. Only ate half an apple or avocado? Toss the other half into one of the small sizes. Leftover soup? The flat-bottomed bag holds it perfectly. I've kept onions and pasta sauce in them without any staining or lingering odor. They go into the dishwasher and come out like new." –East-Villager

    Price: $9.59+ (available in ten sizes and thirteen colors)

    14. A set of four vintage-inspired metal canisters for sneaky countertop storage and a perfectly-muted, modern farmhouse look.

    The canisters

    These galvanized metal canisters are so rustic and cute, it's hard to believe they're functional. The airtight lids each have a silicone ring that keeps your coffee (or Girl Scout Cookies) fresh and dry.

    Promising review: "I adore this canister set! It is so so cute! The lids fits very tightly and the seal is good so the flour and sugar and even tea bags stay fresh. They are so easy to clean, and they look fabulous in my kitchen!" –Kayla Rhodes

    Price: $34.95 (available in five colors)

    15. A set of three floating shelves that are perfect for perching plants, adding storage to small kitchens, and lending a modern rustic vibe. And, for only 20 bucks!

    Reviewer's picture of the three wooden wall shelves holding kitchen jars and decorative signs

    Promising review: "Absolutely perfect, These shelves were absolutely perfect for our kitchen. They are strong enough to put bottles of wine on (even though the weight of the wood is very, very light). I didn't put the brackets on the edge (as shown in the product description photos) but I moved them in slightly - to give them a little different look. I think they look more rustic this way." –WeekendWarrior2017

    Price: $19.99+ (available in six finishes)

    16. A BlenderBottle for shakes and drinks that are blended and clump-free. And, you can pretend it's a Shake Weight.

    The BlenderBottle is BPA- and phthalate-free, dishwasher safe, and the secure seal means you can really shake this baby without worrying about a mess.

    Promising review: "I've been using BlenderBottles for years now, and this bottle is perfect to take drink mixes on the go. I needed something to take my 8 ounces of pre-workout with me to the gym, but dirtying a full 28-ounce BlenderBottle seemed excessive. This bottle is a perfect size, and the loop makes it super convenient to grab and carry. The metal shaker is great at mixing. One tip I learned is that you should always add some liquid first before your powders. That way none of the powder gets stuck at the bottom of the bottle." –RobPlease

    Price: $7.19+ (available in fifteen colors)

    17. A set of five silicone and acacia wood cooking utensils that are as useful as they are gorgeous.

    The cooking utensils

    This set of display-worthy utensils are made with acacia and non-stick silicone for a style that belongs in both modern and farmhouse-style kitchens.

    Promising review: "I really love these cooking utensils. Silicone is nice and sturdy to cook with and yet with a slight softness. Won’t scratch or damaged your pots/pans nor cookware containers! Easy to clean. Great price, great deal!!" –Leila

    Price: $27.99 (available in three colors)

    18. A modern wire basket for wrangling fruit, veggies, and even K-cups that looks straight out of a Danish design catalog.

    The wire bowl

    Yes, it's a bowl BUT it also shows you have good taste. Use it for fruit, to store linen napkins, or to stash snacks.

    Promising review: "I love it. It is lightweight yet sturdy and it looks great. I have received several unsolicited compliments about it." –Reed A. Clark

    Price: $19.99 (available in seven styles)

    19. A stainless steel cleaner and polish for those who can't stand the look of fingerprints and smudges on stainless-steel appliances. Glass cleaner leaves cloudy swirls but this stuff polishes like nothing else!

    A before and after image of a refrigerator that is smudged and dirty on one side and clean and polished on the other side

    Use it on the refrigerator, microwave, oven, stove, grill, sink, range-hood, and trash cans. It comes with a microfiber cloth as well!

    Promising review: "I never thought I'd review something as mundane as appliance cleaner, but here I am. I can't believe how well this stuff works. it took care of water spots on my fridge and dishwasher instantly, along with every fingerprint, smudge, old sticker goop - you name it. My appliances are only about a year old but anyone with stainless stuff knows that the fingerprints can add up quickly and it's a constant battle with a bottle of Windex. This stuff is incredible and requires almost no elbow grease at all. If you have stainless-steel stuff, buy this." –Seventh-777

    Price: $14.98

    20. A wire basket that can make even the most cluttered pantry look soooo put-together.

    The wire basket

    I know we're sick of hearing it, but..."farmhouse." If you're into it, these are an effortless way to achieve that style. Grab a few for a super polished lewk.

    Promising review: "My first thought upon opening these were omg they're huge! But then once I put them in my pantry I realized they are so perfect for all the odds and ends of pantry supplies that don't really have a 'place'. I can just put things in there and my pantry still looks nice and organized. And they fit perfectly and look great side by side. I definitely see myself buying more in the future!" –kailinhiggi

    Price: $16.99+ (available in three sizes and five colors)

    21. A Microplane zester to make you wonder how you went this long without owning one. Use it to zest citrus, grate fresh nutmeg, and to transform Parmesan into elegant dust.

    The Microplane grater

    Add bright citrus zest to dishes, grate hard cheese, garlic, ginger, even chocolate with the Microplane fine grater. The surgical-grade steel stays sharp, never rusts, and can be put in the dishwasher.

    Promising review: "This is THE microplane. #1 rated by America’s Test Kitchen for a reason. Super effective, durable, and the best price. I use mine for citrus zest and ginger mostly and it is amazing. It creates fluffy piles of whatever you’re zesting easily. My favorite part is that it holds up well in the dishwasher, which is a plus because I don’t want to hand wash something with a thousand tiny blades on it that could cut me or tear up my sponge. Mine goes through the dishwasher 3-4 times per week and still works and looks like new." –beccarice

    Price: $14.95+ (available in 17 colors)

    22. A nonstick frying pan with an eco-friendly, nontoxic granite coating that your fried eggs will slide right off of.

    The frying pan in two sizes

    Plus its handle stays cool while cooking and looks just like wood.

    Promising review: "Best pan I've ever had. I bought this and the pot with lid, I think it's great. The nonstick works great with eggs and other foods. It's easy to clean by hand washing it with a gentle sponge or cloth. Don't use these or any other nonstick pan with high heat. For high heat use cast iron or stainless steel. Use these on low to medium heat. Also, don't put any nonstick pans in the dishwasher, hand wash them and they will last longer and stay in great condition." –Darren C

    Price: $13 (available in thirteen sizes)

    23. A Instant Pot Duo Mini, because you literally toss stuff in it and open it to find dinner. It's the closest thing to magic that exists.

    The Instant Pot

    This thing does that job of seven appliances: It's an electric pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, sauté pan, and food warmer. You won't need to reinvent the wheel, there's an endless number of recipes available online from pot roast to fried rice to chicken tikka masala.

    Promising review: "This is probably the only kitchen appliance I've ever bought that has earned permanent status on my kitchen counter. I use it at least three times a week. It's particularly perfect for vegans and WFPB-eaters. I can cook beans and grains from scratch in no time! Such a wonderful investment. I liked it so much that I got one for each of my sisters for the holidays. Best. Thing. Ever." —cynthia w. rogers

    Price: $59.92+ (available in four sizes)

    24. A set of 12 matte black pulls for cabinets and drawers when your landlord won't let you paint but you need to do you.,

    Give your kitchen an instant update with modern, matte black pulls that won't damage wood cabinets. The pulls are also available in brushed brass and satin nickel!

    Promising review: "I love these handles! They make the kitchen in the house I’m renting look so much better than the old '80s handles that were on before. It definitely needs to be renovated but these were an inexpensive option. This is a steal. And they give you all the hardware for them. Get these if you’re wanting a cheap way to jazz things up!" –Natalie

    Price: $18.99 (available in three finishes)

    25. A set of three faux eucalyptus plants because your kitchen doesn't get enough light but it could use a little zhuzh.

    The three artificial plants

    This set of faux plants look convincingly real and are $10 apiece. Just do it.

    Promising review: "You will not be disappointed with this group of faux plants. They are perfect in every way! I put them on my shelves and they add that pop of green and look so good. They are well made and look great!" –Elizabeth

    Price: $29.99
