    Promising review: "Love these. I was able to condense down so much space in my cabinets. These would be open for an open cabinet floor plan. They look nice on my counter. Love the stackable concept. The seal is airtight. 10/10." —Lupita

    Price: $28.99+ (available in three colors)

    2. A 24-piece cookware set to make any complex cooking project feel way less daunting. It's a great value and it'll save you multiple runs to the kitchen supply store by offering all items in one.

    Promising review: "I love the neutral color, I find them easy to clean, the cup has come in handy even though I wasn’t planning on using it. The measuring cups are a little too flexible for my liking, but it was really amazing finding such a comprehensive set of kitchen tools with a stylish design. I purchased this set because I moved into a new apartment with like zero kitchen equipment and this was the perfect set for me." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $25.99 (available in six colors)

    3. A multi-purpose chopping cooking tool for those of us who love to cook but could pass on the tedious chopping process. If you chop about a bag of onions a week, this will cut down on your time spent in the kitchen and help with the clean up.

    Promising review: "So many uses! I love, love, love this Mueller Pro-Series Multi Chopper/Slicer! I have tried others, and they didn't stand up to the chopping, slicing, or shredding needs that this one does! Others have also been so poorly made that I cut myself. This one has safety and functionality in its design. I am so glad that I purchased this. This is a must-have for all kitchens! Fried potatoes, zucchini, potatoes for potato soup, any and all veggies! It also works for meat as well- diced ham for soups! It's incredible, and the price is so affordable." —Rebecca M

    Price: $29.99

    4. An over-the-sink drying rack because sometimes the best cooking solution is the one that helps take the effort out of the most time-consuming tasks. If you spend tons of time doing dishes, this will cut the time in half so you can focus on the fun part of cooking.

    The over the sink drying rack holding dishes

    Promising review: "This item contrasts a bit with the kitchen space, but it really is practical. It’s very sturdy and I added weight on the top racks (See 10lb watermelon in photo) and put pressure on the racks on top at the front to see if it’ll tip over, it didn’t. The design of the legs distributes the weight evenly to prevent it from tipping over. It does not have to be extended fully for all the trays to hold Neatly, but you can if you want to. I didn’t use all of the hooks, but still had space for everything. The cutting board holder on the leg slips off often if you touch it, but it’s not a big deal. Everything else is really great. I was tired of having a drying mat that got soaked every time we did the dishes, which also smelled funny sometimes, gross! We no longer have that drying mat problem and there’s a lot more counter space that can be used in this small kitchen. In retrospect, I should have gotten a chrome-colored rack, but I don’t think the option existed from this seller." —Veelagirl07

    Price: $59.45 (available in two colors)

    5. A waterproof kitchen rug so won't have to worry about spills and water ricocheting off of dishes. Plus, it adds a nice homey feel to any kitchen.

    The reviewer's photo of the kitchen rug

    Promising review: "The mats arrive rolled up together and are easily able to unroll them and they lay flat on the floor right away. There is a plastic smell but it does fade away. They are quite easy to clean. I like the length of the longer one because it fits perfectly in front of my sink and dishwasher. The second one, is shorter and fits perfectly on the side counter. These mats would be perfect for a laundry room and even a bathroom. The mats look like they are thin, however, when standing on them they do not sink down. I have stood on anti-fatigue mats and it was so soft I felt like I was standing on my floor. I don't feel this way while standing on these mats, even for a long period of time. The color is a soft grey with a pleasing pattern, that would match just about any decor. The quality looks as if they would stand up to daily use. I would purchase them again." —Kristina Deyette

    Price: $29.99 (available in six colors)

    6. A 17-piece nonstick cookware set that will take all the fuss out of the cooking process. Nonstick means less clean-up and with this amount of products, you're getting a total deal compared to other kitchen bundles.

    The reviewer's photo of the 17 piece nonstick cookware set hanging in a kitchen

    This set includes an 8" fry pan, 10.25" fry pan, 11.5" fry pan with lid, 10.25" square griddle, 1-quart saucepan with lid, 2-quart saucepan with lid, 3-quart saucepan with lid, 3.5-quart deep sauté, 5-quart Dutch oven with lid, 3-quart steamer insert with two side handles, and one "egg wonder" fry pan.

    Promising review: "I have owned a lot of cookware and did a lot of research before purchasing this product. If you do not care about using your pots and pans in the oven, this is the best non-stick cookware you are going to find under the $700 price point and maybe even at all. This is NOT normal T-Fal cookware, the coating is COMPLETELY different and much more hard. I have owned a few T-Fal Ultimate products for over seven years and have used metal on them many times, they still look and act brand new. If you are looking for a premier set of cookware that isn't for oven cooking, look no further." —A. Dorman

    Price: $164.32+ (available in three sizes and two styles)

    7. A pack of oven mitts, hot pads, and mini oven gloves for those of us who tend to be a bit clumsier in the kitchen. If you're constantly breaking things or burning yourself, like me, this is for you.

    The reviewer's photo of the pack of six kitchen essentials in grey

    Promising review: "Set provided pretty much everything you'd need for not getting burned in the kitchen. They are very handy. The assortment is good because it covers you for whatever you're doing, you may not always want to grab the glove so the little hand mitts are easy and great." —Virginia

    Price: $19.99+ (available in seven colors)

    8. A bento box style lunch container because there's never been a better time to up your at-home meal prep game. It's as simple as cutting up some fruits and veggies for a mid-work day snack, but this tray will not only organize everything and keep food from getting soggy, but it will also look super pleasing.

    The reviewer's photo of the bento box style lunch container in green

    Promising review: "This container is fabulous! I am doing weight watchers so having a lot of fresh produce on hand during the day is just the thing. I love how I can fit a lot of healthy salad in the main compartment then load up the tray with fresh snacks. It's fabulous to be free of the old separate little containers or the zip lock bags that get lost with other stuff and it's nice to be able to see everything in one place. The unit closes up securely, the cover over the fork stays put, the dressing container doesn't leak at all. It's top-shelf dishwasher safe. I can't think of anything bad to say about it. Here's a picture of all the food I was able to fit in mine. (The green water bottle is a separate item of course)." —Sand Box

    Price: $14.99 (available in seven colors)

    9. A bamboo drawer organizer so you can ensure your kitchen tools don't take over more space in your kitchen than they need to. It's a simple way to make you space feel and look more put-together.

    Promising review: "These are wonderful!! We have really wide kitchen drawers and we were just tossing stuff in and it was a mess. Ordered two sets of these for two drawers. Will be getting more. Super sturdy and easy to use." —PK

    Price: $29.99

    10. A 30-count of Nespresso coffee pods that will keep Sunday scaries at bay. It's a great way to re-caffeinate in the middle of the day without all the mess of brewing a whole pot of coffee.

    The reviewer's photo of the Nespresso pods in caramel

    Promising review: "Delicious and tasty. Don't be fooled by the flavors' names, this coffee does not taste exactly like Hazelnut, Vanilla, or Caramel from the coffee store. It has only a very light aroma. However, I love it, it is not as overwhelming as in the store coffee." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $33+ (available in four flavors and four multipacks)

    11. An oil-less air fryer for the people who are all about the air-fryer trend, but aren't sure which reviews to follow to the person one. This large no-oil machine has thousands of positive reviews and temperature control so you can have your food your way.


    Promising review: "I've been shopping for an AirFryer for months but most of them are small (<3quarts) and only cook a partial meal. When I came across this one it was just what I was looking for it's 16 quarts in size allowing me to cook more than one type of food at a time and it comes with a spacer to accommodate your height of the cooktop to prevent drying out meats, plus you can see your food as it cooks. I love the recipe book that comes with it as well." —LEELEE

    Price: $67.24+ (available in four colors)

    12. A lid container, because this is one of the easiest items to lose in cupboards and in drawers. It's a simple addition to any kitchen but will keep things looking super tidy and will help with the frustrating process of finding lids when they go astray.

    The reviewer&#x27;s photo of the lid organizer in white

    Promising review: "This is a great caddy for all of those maverick Tupperware lids that disappear like socks in a laundry room. I was able to fit quite a few into it. It comes with five separators to cordon off different sizes/shapes of lids (see photos) and consolidate two of three previous lids bins into this one. Plus, according to their card insert, the company is a small women-owned business, which I’m always happy to support." —Bridget D.

    Price: $15.99+ (available in four sizes and two designs)

    13. A set of terry dishtowels that will make a big difference in not only the functionality but also the aesthetic of your kitchen. It's so essential to have extra kitchen towels on hand for quick clean-ups and spills. Plus, it will make your space look way more put-together.

    The reviewer&#x27;s photo of the dishtowels in yellow laid out

    Promising review: "So far these are great. I washed them before using (as recommended) and they washed up beautifully. I got the green and it is just what I expected based on the picture. They are very absorbent and work great in the kitchen for drying dishes, hands, counters. My only wish would be an option without white- I have a lot of trouble keeping my whites white (a reflection of me, not the product- ha!). They seem like they will last a long time, but when the time comes I will buy again." —mum 2-5

    Price: $14.99 (available in 16 colors and two sizes)

    14. A set of three Pyrex mixing bowls for those who are looking for a trusted brand to invest in. You really can't go wrong with Pyrex and the reviews for this set of mixing bowls speak for themselves, citing their microwave-friendly capabilities and lip for serving as some of their great qualities.

    The reviewer&#x27;s photo of the three glass mixing bowls on their granite counter

    Promising review: "The size of these bowls are a 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. While they're all advertised as "mixing bowls" the largest bowl seems the best for it, but the smallest bowl is perfect for mixing guacamole or a cheese dip, etc. 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: $16.99

    15. A 12-pack of food storage containers, because I've never been one to turn down leftovers and I hope you aren't either. It makes cooking so satisfying to know you'll be able to enjoy the meal you've made more than once and that you can store all the components separately so it stays as fresh as possible.

    The reviewer&#x27;s photo of the pack of 12 food storage containers holding meals

    Promising review: "I like the locking lids. I use the containers daily for food storage of leftovers and fruits that I prepare for snacks and need to refrigerate." —Tery

    Price: $34.99+ (available in two colors and two multipack sizes)

    16. A touchless stainless-steel trash can so you can keep your place looking nice, while maximizing your trash capacity. It holds 13 gallons of garbage and its stainless-steel exterior makes it easy to clean and keeps it looking fresh.

    The reviewer&#x27;s photo of two side by side touchless stainless steel trash cans with black lids

    Promising review: "I've waited almost a year to write this review because I wanted to be sure this product was long-lasting. We have a tiny kitchen in our beach house and a tiny and weirdly shaped space for a trash can. I researched FOREVER (just ask my husband) and finally settled on this one. It fits perfectly in the space and has surpassed my expectations in every way. It's attractive and fits a TON of trash in a very discreet way. I love it." —S. Loud

    Price: $69.99+ (available in 21 styles)

    17. A 10-piece carbon steel cookware set that will definitely inspire some new baking ideas. It's a simple way to add the muffin tins and loaf pans into your kitchen that you may not already have.

    The full set

    This set includes baking pan, pizza pan, small cookie sheet, two round pans, square pan, loaf pan, big cookie sheet, and 12- and 24-cup muffin pans.

    Promising review: "I bought these for my mother who is an avid baker and pizza maker! She was very impressed and absolutely loves them. She was floored by the high quality of these pans. They feel heavy because they are made of carbon STEEL and NOT made of cheap material that you see at department stores. The silicone red handles are a nice addition that prevents you from getting burnt. She has made pizza, loaf cake, granola bars, and cupcakes in these pans. They are non-stick which makes for very easy clean up. For the price and quality, this is an unbeatable deal!" —Sam M

    Price: $70.14 (available in three styles)

    18. A set of fridge and freezer bins for those who appreciate a super organized fridge. It's great for holding cans, eggs, and fruits/ veggies so everything will have its place.

    The reviewer&#x27;s photo of a set of fridge and freezer bins

    Promising review: "We love these bins! They fit perfectly in the frig and even used the extras in our pantry. The kids can pick and choose from each one for their lunches!" —Julie

    Price: $38.99

    19. A dish drying rack because doing dishes doesn't have to last all day. It makes the clean up process way quicker the liquid from your dishes can drain into the sink.

    The dish drying rack

    Promising review: "I didn’t realize I would like this so much. It’s a minimalist way to dry dishes without all sorts of contraptions on my counter. I like the low profile and the ease of rolling up the rack when not in use. Works well for cups and plates but silverware can fall through the slats if not placed on the perpendicular. I wish they had a larger size to accommodate the other side of my sink. I have a 60/40 sink that I love, this is on the 40 side." —Mama osa

    Price: $17.89

    20. A silicone drying mat so *if you aren't able to have the above over-the-sink drying rack* you can keep your counters clean and water-free. It's as simple as tilting the tray into the sink to release extra water that would have gotten all over the floor.

    The reviewer&#x27;s photo of the silicone drying mat in gray

    Promising review: "I use this under my other dish rack so that I have room to dry my cutting boards and the baby's high chair tray. Also highly recommend the other two racks you see pictured the one sitting on top of this holds a lot and looks good. And the stainless-steel one which rolls up and sits on top of the sink I use it for extra dishes and to wash produce. All game-changers." —Christina P.

    Price: $14.95+ (available in five sizes and three colors)

    21. An over-the-door storage organizer that makes keeping cling wrap, aluminum foil, and other similarly shaped kitchen items within reach super simple. Plus, it's hidden from view so you won't have to take up precious drawer space just to keep it from occupying counter space.

    The reviewer&#x27;s photo of the over the door storage organizer holding trash bags and foil

    Promising review: "I have a cutting board that was too long for the over-the-door hooks, so I opted to use Command hooks instead of screws. It's holding up great! The width is perfect to hold five cutting boards of various sizes." —medire27

    Price: $14.87 

    22. An immersion hand blender because cooking will never be the same after your first immersion blender. It makes soups, smoothies, and everything in-between so much better and clean-up so much easier than a traditional blender.

    The immersion hand blender

    Promising review: "Wow, my smoothie is ready in 10 seconds in my mug. I do not need to clean an extra container for the smoothie. The blender is very easy to use and clean. The blender does not take up too much space and I could put it anywhere in the kitchen area. Haven’t tried the steel whisk yet, but looks great." —W

    Price: $36.99

    23. A set of 13 mixing bowls so you can always have the appropriate sized bowl on hand. Say goodbye to the days of having to wash your dirty dishes from lunch before embarking on your dinner project (because everyone knows that's doing the dishes too many times!).

    The colorful set

    This set includes two mixer bowls, one colander with a handle, one mesh strainer sifter, four measuring cups, and five measuring spoons.

    Promising review: "This mixing bowl set is colorful, versatile and fun to use. The pieces are fairly durable, easy to use and easy to clean. The handles are a bit flimsy and the material gets very static, so herbs stick like crazy to the cups. The strainer has a hole in the center, it's bent and it's a little too flexible. It's not as sturdy as I'd like it to be, but I'm still giving 5 stars because I'm fairly happy with the rest of the set. The bright colors make me happy and this set allows my natural herbal product and supplement-making process to be even more positive than it already is. Yep, this mixing bowl set is certainly Instagram-worthy. You got your camera phone ready?" —♡ Pain ₩arrior ♡

    Price: $25.97

    24. A collapsible kitchen colander that will make draining ingredients so much easier. Plus, this will save you big money on paper towels which is great for your wallet and the environment.

    The reviewer&#x27;s photo of the green collapsable strainer in their sink

    Promising review: "Saw this at a friend's house and had to get one. As much as I appreciate it can collapse for storage, the telescoping arms are what got me to actually buy it. The arms extend far enough for even a farmhouse sink and are strong enough to hold a pot of potatoes. This frees up both my hands for holding a heavy pot (no scalding) and keeps the food from sitting in the water. It was shipped quickly and was packed well." —Bast

    Price: $14.99 (available in three colors)

    25. An Amazon Basics coffee maker for the person who's had enough of their French press for a while. Upgrading to a full pot of coffee every day has become increasingly necessary and this incredible purchase will definitely hold up.

    The reviewer&#x27;s photo of the coffee machine brewing a pot of coffee

    Promising review: "This is a coffeemaker. Pretty basic but it works great. One feature I really like is that a reusable filter is included, this saves a lot of time and money. One recommendation I have before your first use is just making a pot of just water to clear out and clean any chemicals that the company used to clean the product. Overall I'm very satisfied." —Josh Gableman

    Price: $20.10
