    Whether you're dreaming of a clean, organized kitchen or some cool gadgets to make cooking more fun, we've got you covered.

    1. A super-handy pancake batter bottle so you can make perfectly round and uniform pancakes to surprise your family with. Heck — you can even go the extra mile and make some Mickey Mouse–shaped ones!

    2. Or a mini waffle maker for anyone with limited kitchen storage space who still wants to treat themselves to a delicious homemade brunch on Sunday morning.

    3. A pack of oven liners that protect the bottom of your oven from those awful drips and spills that happen when you're cooking up a casserole. Much easier to clean this than your entire oven!

    4. And an oven scrub cleaner If you can't remember the last time you gave the inside of your oven a deep clean. Now you won't smell that burnt cheese that's been stuck to the bottom since 2019 every time you turn on the oven!

    5. A tofu press to squeeze all of that water out of your tofu so it comes out nice and crispy when you cook it up. The water collects at the bottom of the press, so you can easily dump it out when you're done.

    6. A hands-free electric can opener so you can stop fumbling around with your flimsy can opener that hurts your hand anyway. It's also kinda fun to press a button and watch this lil gadget do its thing!

    7. A four-pack of easy-to-clean coffee filters for Keurigs that you can use over and over again with your favorite coffee instead of buying those single-use K-Cups that can really add up on your grocery bill over time.

    8. And cleaning pods to use in your Keurig coffee machine if you notice your morning cup is starting to taste a bit stale and weird lately. Bacteria and mold can actually develop within your coffee maker, so just use this nontoxic, plant-based cleaning pod like you would a regular K-Cup, and you'll be back in business.

    9. A macramé fruit hammock because even your apples and oranges deserve to kick back and relax. But seriously, this ingenious storage solution frees up your counter space while also reminding you of all the fresh fruit you should eat before it goes bad!

    10. A pack of washable refrigerator liner mats — it'll prevent any dreaded spills from drying, getting crusty, and becoming impossible to clean off. Plus: It'll instantly make your fridge look so much more put together!

    11. A snap-on pasta strainer if you're making a big batch of pasta and don't want to have to dump the entire thing into a separate colander. Just clip this onto the side of your pot, tip out all the water, and get back to cooking!

    12. A set of three dough presses so you can make your own ravioli, empanadas, dumplings, hand pies, calzones — basically, any kind of recipe that involves food inside of dough!

    13. A wine saver to preserve the taste and quality of the wine after you've uncorked it. It'll keep your wine tasting new for up to a week!

    14. A roll of heavy-duty, eco-friendly, machine-washable, reusable bamboo towels worth buying if you realize you spend way too much on paper towel rolls in a month and also want to cut down on your waste.

    17. A pack of 30 multicolored, PVC-coated steel wire utility clips so you'll always have one at the ready whenever you open up a new bag of chips.

    18. An ingenious sandwich cutter and sealer so you can transform a regular PB&J into an exact replica of those Uncrustables sandwiches your kid loves. Not only will you save money, you can customize the sandwich to your liking: extra-crunchy peanut butter? Peach jam? Go for it!

    19. A trio of professional-quality knives because nothing's as satisfying in the kitchen as slicing, dicing, and cutting your ingredients with a razor-sharp edge. A priceless investment for anyone who spends a lot of time in the kitchen, this sophisticated knife set is sure to last you years and years.

    20. A cold brew maker so you can have coffee shop–quality iced coffee waiting in your fridge when you wake up in the morning, bleary-eyed and in need of caffeine ASAP.

    21. And a milk frother for making fancy lattes from the comfort of your own home. Yes, your local coffee shop might miss seeing your face every morning, but now you'll be saving money while still enjoying professional-quality drinks every day.

    22. A Rubbermaid produce saver if you're sick and tired of discovering that the fruit you bought four days ago has already gone bad. Reviewers say this food container will prolong the life of your fresh produce for WEEKS longer than normal!

    23. A multipurpose, heat-resistant mat that will help you out with so many tasks in the kitchen — use it to grab a hot pot handle, as a drying mat, as a spoon rest while you're cooking, or as a trivet for hot dishes at the dining table.

    24. An extra-large silicone ice tray perfect for freezing large amounts of soup or broth for you to eat later. It's a genius meal-prepping hack: Make a huge batch of soup, freeze the leftovers, and you have meals for the rest of the week!

    25. A three-in-one avocado slicer that can split your avocado, remove the pit, and make beautifully even slices with ease. This might become your most reached-for tool, especially if you're a big avocado toast fan.

    26. A set of OXO food storage containers with an airtight seal to keep your food fresher for longer. Because the containers are clear, you'll be able to see exactly how much of each ingredient you have left.

    27. A Bacon Sponge — a 100% organic cotton towel — can absorb TEN TIMES its weight in liquid! Now you won't have to use nearly half a roll of paper towels just to absorb the grease and oil from cooking bacon.

    28. A knife sharpener that will keep your knives cutting as well as the day you bought them. No need to get them professionally sharpened — this gadget does the job for you so you can get back to chopping veggies in no time.
