    4. A futuristic drinking vessel that'll probably never leave your side from kitchen to work.,

    Promising review: "Made a pot of coffee this morning at 7:30 (in an old Mr Coffee maker). Poured directly into thermos, adding some coffeemate creamer, closed lid and completely forgot about it until 4:45 p.m., poured a cup and was amazed that the coffee was still warm and drinkable (185°F). The thermos was in my car all day, ambient temp got as high as 85°. Highly recommend this product." —Chuck P.

    6. A timeless French press that's adorned with intriguing bronze details.

    Promising review: "Good for making one cup at a time, which is all I do or want. It's built really solid and has a nice antique copper feel to it. The filter screen seems to hold pretty well. Also, the glass appears to be well held in place, apparently unlike others where the carafe can slide out and break." —ACZ

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in cream and turquoise).

    12. A countertop garden and herbs seed kit so you can always have a fresh supply of basil and mint awaiting your return from work.

    Promising review: "I love to cook, so the thought of having fresh herbs and veggies right on my kitchen counter was exciting. However, I had never had much success gardening. This new Goodful AeroGarden changed that for me. I made the best Caprese salad I have ever eaten last week with some fresh basil from my garden. My kids actually enjoy helping me harvest and eat something green. It is freezing outside right now, but we still have fresh produce growing in our home! I can't believe it works this well. If you enjoy cooking or gardening, I would highly recommend." —FreshMom

    15. A dish-draining rack that dries your stuff but whets your appetite for Nordic design.

    Promising review: "Great design! Just the right size for a few dishes, couple of wineglasses and silverware for two to four people. I like that it doesn't take up a lot of real estate on my counter and it's attractive too. Have already recommended it to others." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in black and white).

    16. A set of bamboo coasters for keeping your surfaces in tip-top shape.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.84+ (available in eight colors).

    18. An orange peeler that, if nothing else, functions as a fascinating piece of contemporary art.

    Promising review: "I'll admit, I picked this up as a gift for my wife who is somewhat obsessed with Alessi. Seeing it online, I appreciated the design and aesthetics, and thought it would be a pretty piece to add to our collection. But it turns out to be useful! It's surprisingly more useful than a knife and it's extremely convenient to peel whatever citrus you're eating at the time. It's a little more sanitary than plunging your thumb into an orange or clementine peel to get it started." —Tracey W. Larvenz

    Get it from Amazon for $20.76.

    Get it from Food52 for $25+ (available in plastic or ceramic and in 10 colors).

    24. A linen "double-mitt" — that's an added layer of fabric to protect your hands — because you deserve to have style and safety in one package.

    Get it from Food52 for $48+ (available in three colorways).

    25. An indoor food compost bin you won't mind leaving out on the counter.

    Promising review: "I love this compost bin! It is very well designed. They actually tested all aspects of it. The one-handed operation is SO much better than having to lift off a lid like my old steel compost bin. The lid flips up/down very easily. The lid removes when you want to empty it out. The plastic inside is super smooth so there are no nooks or crannies for food to get caught. Most of the waste simply slips off and then you can just rinse it and you are good to go. I don't have to buy compost bags anymore either. There is no smell when it is on the counter. I was worried about it looking tacky on my counter because it is plastic, but is is so well designed that it even looks classy on my granite counter." —Susanne M. Millar

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in gray and white).

    26. A salt and pepper shaker with oak stoppers to spice up your kitchen display.

    Get the pair from Amazon for $30.97.

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $214.99.
