    4. An Our Place Perfect Pot, the equally impressive counterpart to the beloved Always Pan — this cleverly designed pot takes the place of your stockpot, Dutch oven, saucepot, roasting rack, steamer, strainer, braiser, and spoon rest, not to mention how stylish it'll look sitting on your countertop.

    5. A frozen dessert maker that basically works magic by whipping up frozen fruit into delicious dairy-free soft serve!! Reviewers rave about the fact that you needn't add anything but the fruit itself to end up with a sweet ice cream-like treat, but if you do add other ingredients, the possibilities are really endless.

    41. A garlic press that works through a gentle rocking motion rather than by loading the cloves in and smushing the garlic out (like more traditional presses). Why is this design far superior? Well, it's not only way easier to use but also to clean. And it comes with tools for peeling off the shell and scraping the minced garlic off the surface!
