    The new year is full of possibilities—like you becoming a person who cooks!

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An easy-to-use pot that will allow you to cook rice and steam vegetables at the same time. Also: It can be used to make oatmeal, chili, and soup!

    2. A nonstick and dual-sided omelet maker for producing tasty omelets that, for once, aren't shapeless blobs.

    3. And for making egg white omelets, you might consider calling in this yolk fish to separate your egg with its lips.

    4. A vacuum sealing system that will keep your produce and meats fresh for five times longer. It's also sous vide-safe!

    5. Speaking of sous vides: This high-end cooker that's half the size of most other sous vides and uses precise heating technology to make sure your meats are perfectly cooked every time.

    6. A vegetable spiralizer, because if you're not eating zoodles you're missing out.

    7. A spice carousel to save you space on your countertop (because you can stack as many rows of these as you want) and from over-salting your meal (because it dispenses exactly one-fourth teaspoon every time).

    8. A very helpful crab who, in a pinch, will open just about anything for you.

    9. A potato masher that will make you want to eat mashed potatoes with every meal (an honorable decision).

    10. An adjustable rolling pin so you always end up with the right dough thickness.

    11. A rotary peeler with the choice of three different blade types, perfect for any fruit or vegetable.

    12. A chopping container that will catch your vegetables, fruits, and cheeses as you chop. Arguably, the best part: It will reduce onion vapors so you don't look like this while prepping.

    13. An airfryer for frying with 75 percent less fat — it also has Gordon Ramsay's stamp of approval, FWIW.

    14. An avocado slicer that removes pits with one quick twist, so you don't have to worry about avocado hand.

    15. A stand mixer with the choice of 10 speed settings, to mix up your daily meal routine.

    16. An egg timer that will change colors to indicate the consistency of your boiled eggs, so you never have to play the guessing game again.

    17. A heavy-duty garlic press, because minced garlic belongs on everything.

    18. A professional cream whipper that you can also decorate with for extra credit.

    19. A cherry stoner to remove the pits from your cherries and not leave your kitchen looking like a crime scene in the process.

    20. A pair of multipurpose kitchen scissors with five different blades for all of your herb chopping needs.

    21. An erupting volcano microwave cleaner to make cleaning fun and remind you of your science fair days.

    22. A two-in-one whisk for making sauce and gravy preparation...well, gravy.

    23. Or: A mini food processor that will help you achieve perfection with your homemade sauces.

    24. A five-tray fruit dehydrator for making an easy, delicious snack.

    25. A citrus press that will separate the pulp from your meal or drink with little effort.

    26. A dishwasher-safe cauliflower chopper to make homemade cauliflower rice easier than ever.

    27. A spill-proof digital food scale that will give you the culinary confidence — but unfortunately not the hair — of Guy Fieri.

    28. A very convenient corn stripper (it's also, miraculously, mess-free).

    29. A "smoking gun" food smoker for infusing any food (or alcoholic beverage, for that matter) with a smokey flavor — no heat required.

    30. And a vertical waffle maker that will make you wonder why all waffle makers aren't designed this way.
