    1. A kitchen mat to add a bit of decor to your kitchen floor and some comfort. Now, you can cook your dinner after a long day of work and not have to worry about sore or uncomfortable feet.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Got these kitchen mats to spice up the kitchen a bit and to assist in keeping the floors clean. What I didn’t realize was how comfortable they were going to be to stand on while I am doing the dishes and cooking at the stovetop. Perfect thickness, don’t feel like I need to step up to move across them. Seriously enjoying them." —Kathleen Knepper

    Price: $29.99 (available in five colors)

    2. Swedish dishcloths reviewers swear are some of the most absorbent cloths they've ever had. They even come in super cute colors so they add some fun decor to your kitchen, to boot!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’ve been on the hunt for kitchen cleaning rags and tried MANY. This may seem pricey but it’s a great value because it’s so easy to clean at the sink (or sterile with boiling water), unlike cloths, you don’t need a large supply to always have a clean cloth. It’s sturdy like a sponge and absorbs TONS of water and it squeezes almost dry, then dries in no time, even when it’s pouring rain. It’s flexible like a cloth when wet/damp and can clean any surface or tight spot. Great for wiping shower/bathroom fixtures dry. Because it’s so easy to clean with soap and water in the sink or boil to sterilize, there’s no need for a dozen to have a clean sponge/cloth all the time, or to do dirty rag laundry regularly. Great product!! Excellent seller. Arrived quickly with a nice handwritten note." —Gilbert Agaran

    Price: $19.95 (for ten dishcloths, available in five colors)

    3. Insulated can coolers to keep any bevvie ice cold. Now, you can sit in the summer sun and slowly sip a seltzer for hours.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’ve never been impressed with Koozies. They don’t work. BUT, THIS ONE DOES! I can’t even tell when my beer is empty because it’s just as cold as when it was opened. Even in 96-degree heat by the pool. My wife got one of these and I tried it. So impressed I had to buy one. I was sick of throwing away half a beer because it was warm. And I drink fast. Best investment I could’ve made." —BP

    Price: $14.97 (available in 22 colors)

    4. A set of cutting boards for those people who are tired of having their cutting boards slip and slide around the counter. These have a rubber border so they'll stay in place the entire time you're chopping away.

    the three boards with a pepper and knife
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have owned plastic cutting boards for many years. Of all the ones I have owned, these are by far the best, and probably the last ones I will own (meaning I will not have to replace them or find another brand). They take a knife very well and, although the knives leave marks, they are shallow — almost like light scratches — not a gouge like the softer boards. The nonskid edges are raised slightly so they grip the counters very well. They also clean up amazingly. Carrots, chili peppers, roasted tomatoes, etc. all come off without leaving stains (I wash the boards almost immediately, so I have not let the foods sit for long on the boards)." —Architect Dave

    Price: $24.99 (for a set of three, available in 27 colors)

    5. Pyrex measuring cups you'll love so much you'll wonder how you survived without them for so long. These durable cups are BPA-free, microwavable, and dishwasher safe which makes 'em perfect for everyday use.

    the measuring cups
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Nice and sturdy. Very strong, thick, reliable glass measuring cups that work well as mixing bowls. All of these measuring cups surprised me by their large size. I could eat large bowls of cereal and ice cream out of these with room to spare." —Hope Pusher

    Price: $21.49 (for a set of three)

    6. A pack of meal prep containers that will quickly become your favorite kitchen tools. These are stackable and compact enough to fit into your freezer or fridge, that way you can have ready-to-go meals all week long.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Since I am an organized type, I love these containers! They are organized, neat, and extremely convenient! They freeze amazingly well and keep food fresh and delicious for a long period of time! They stack beautifully in the fridge and are also excellent for microwave use! The best part I find is that it has three compartments and is perfect for a quick, dishes-free supper! I tried others, but none of them were compatible. After freezing and microwaving, the food tastes as if it was just cooked!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $20.99

    7. A Hamilton Beach breakfast sandwich maker to revolutionize your morning meals. Trust me, this is the best thing to have in your kitchen — it makes the best bacon, egg, and cheese in under five minutes, aka is a complete necessity.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is a lifesaver. I'm a mother of four young kids, so I have resorted to eating cereal, Pop Tarts, anything FAST in the mornings because I have lots of little people to take care of too. For as little as one minute of prep time and five minutes to cook, I have a delicious and much healthier breakfast. I bought the single, but I am considering ordering a double as well." —M.K.

    Price: $23.83+ (available in five colors)

    8. A pack of kitchen timers so you no longer have to get your phone all messy with greasy fingers when you're cooking. These magnetic timers are easy to use and super loud, so you can walk away and still be notified when your food is done.

    the two timers hanging on a microwave
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm a mom and a hairstylist and I have used this timer on many occasions. I've cooked lamb for the first time and due to the timer, it came out perfect. The timer was easy to set and easy to use. No complications at all. There is no on/off button but that's okay. It's been on for like four days with no issue. I got two in the box with was great and they are magnetic which is a plus. It's loud and you can hear it in any room." —Crystal

    Price: $7.62 (available in two colors)

    9. A bunch of reusable silicone baking cups in rainbow colors so you can cut down on one-time paper use and still have super cute muffins or cupcakes whenever you want!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love these!! I have bought several sets, including as gifts. They are totally non-stick. After use, you do have to wash them in hot soapy water to remove all grease. I make breakfast muffins (like crustless quiches). With egg, a nonstick muffin pan still sticks and requires way too much work." —jcavalon

    Price: $8.30+ (for a pack of 12)

    10. Glass spice jars to give your kitchen a more sophisticated look. These customizable containers add a minimalist touch to a cluttered kitchen while still being incredibly durable and functional.

    the jars with different spices on a spice rack
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I spent a long time looking through all of the options for spice bottles before deciding on these. I’m glad I did! As far as the bottle itself, it’s what you’d expect. Durable, glass, and the usual size. However, this set also came with two different types of labels — transparent ones and black circle ones. Each set had hundreds of spices, and some blank ones to fill in if you manage to find a spice not listed. It also included a collapsible mini strainer to aid you in transferring your spices into the bottles - something that I’ll be storing and using in the future." —mellyworld21

    Price: $24.99 (for 24 bottles)

    11. Durable kitchen shears that can cut through chicken like paper. Gone are the days of trying to saw through raw meat with a knife — now, you have the practical shears of your dreams.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was replacing cheap kitchen scissors my husband bought from a tool store. They didn't cut really, just mutilated stuff. So when I got these scissors, I was thinking anything will be better. But, these scissors are AMAZING. They cut raw meat like they are cutting paper. They cut through plastic packaging like butter. They snip vegetables like ....grass? I am running out of illustrations. I have rheumatoid arthritis, so I really appreciate a tool that saves me pain. I am using one and hid the other in case someone walks off with the best scissors in the house. I can see gifting a set of these to friends and family." —B L

    Price: $10.99 (available in nine colors)

    12. Stasher reusable storage bags so you can stop using single-use plastic and start carrying your food in attractive and environmentally conscious containers.

    Amazon

    Price: $54.99

    13. A food scale because when it comes to cooking, guessing how much of an ingredient to use is never a good idea. This super-accurate scale will have your friends thinking you're a cooking master.

    the scale with a pepper on it
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this because it was the less expensive but still very highly rated pick from America's Test Kitchen online reviews. It is super easy to use unlike some they tested which had confusing menu buttons and too many features. It is a very accurate scale, lightweight, and easy to clean. The surface accommodates my largest mixing bowl. I like being able to leave the bowl on the scale and press tare between ingredients to keep adding while it's on the scale. Makes measuring so much easier. At the price listed, it's the best on the market." —TC

    Price: $10.06+ (available in seven colors) 

    14. A slim Keurig so you can have delicious coffee every morning without having to sacrifice counter space. It's also energy-efficient, turning off five minutes after your last brew.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This machine was the perfect fit for us on several levels. We love the slim design, easy access to refill water, it’s lightweight making it easy to clean around. The water reservoir is out of sight behind the machine. An absolute win for us! LOVE it!" —Allison

    Price: $79 (originally $109, available in two colors)

    15. A milk frother to help you create the latte of your dreams at home. You can even use this to blend things like matcha and protein powder!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’m a barista at Starbucks so obviously I know how I like my coffee. For a while, I was using an immersion blender to froth my milk for my morning cup of coffee but it just wasn’t doing what I wanted it to do. I finally bought this frother and I’m so so happy with it!! It doesn’t need to be plugged in so it takes up way less space. It is a lot quieter than the blender, and I can use any size cup I want because the frother is so small. Not only can I heat up my milk for a hot coffee, but I can also use it just the same with cold milk for my iced coffee!!" —Heather Michael

    Price: $14.95 (available in 31 colors)

    16. A cold brew maker that reviewers swear makes the smoothest cup of java you can imagine. Just pop in some coffee and cold water, let it brew for up to 24 hours, and you'll have delicious brew for days.

    the cold brew maker with cold brew in it
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this. It's the easiest thing in the world to use and it produces smooth, tasty cold brew coffee. You just add 14 tsp. of coffee to the filter, then put the filter into the pitcher which is filled three-quarters of the way with cold water, shake it up, and put it in the fridge. It suggests 12–24 hours but I've found the coffee tastes the best after 24. I also take it out every so often and shake it up to mix it up a bit. I was so impressed and happy with it, I've now bought this for a friend, and my dad. My only complaint is that I wish the pitcher was bigger because I get maybe two or three days out of a full one, so I'm constantly washing and prepping for coffee for the next day. GREAT purchase. I'm enjoying some at work right now!" —Julia Padula

    Price: $19.99+ (available in two sizes and three colors)

    17. A can rack organizer to clean up that mess in your pantry that you know is there but don't want to acknowledge. Now, you don't have to cringe every time you open the pantry door.

    reviewer photo of the rack filled with cans in a cupboard
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Great organizers, it really helped transform our pantry! You can adjust the middle brackets for larger or smaller cans which is nice. They can also be stacked although we put ours side by side as we cannot stack them in our pantry. This is a great wat to be able to see which canned items we have or don't have instead of buying many of the ones we already have vs the ones we actually need." —Tiusa

    Price: $18.69 (available in two pack sizes and four colors)

    18. A measuring spoon set with magnetic holders so you never have to worry about losing the small ones you only use on occasion. And, they're super durable because they're made of stainless steel which means they'll never bend or rust on you.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am the gadget lover of our family. I ordered a second set because I absolutely love these measuring spoons, they are ingenious! Not only do they fit compactly in my drawer, they magnetically stay together. Yet, they are easy to separate if I only need a teaspoon, which I could also stick to my stainless steel pan or bowl instead of putting it down on a dirty kitchen counter. And if you do set it on a flat surface, the bottom of the spoons are flat so the contents won’t spill over. When I have a recipe that calls for a liquid and a dry teaspoon ingredient, I now have one measuring spoon that serves two purposes...no more washing/drying the wet spoon or digging around for another teaspoon that may already be in the dishwasher." —PrimeView

    Price: $14.97 (available in two colors)

    19. A Yeti Rambler with double-wall vacuum insulation to keep your bevvies at the perfect temperature whether they're hot or cold. And you can customize how you like with 20 super cute colors.

    Promising review: "This is one of the best drinking containers I've ever used. It's heavy-duty, and the magnetic slide on the lid is great!" —chris terrell

    Price: $34.98 (available in 20 colors)

    20. A Ninja blender that is def the best way to get your greens in (adding spinach to literally any fruit smoothie = genius). This compact blender can make you a delicious breakfast in the morning and the perfect marg at night.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I specifically got this to make my blended coffee drinks. I have had it for over a month now and couldn’t be happier. I was using a standard blender that was bulky and hard to clean! I have used this every day since getting it.. it is so easy to clean... literally, rinse off or clean easily with soap and let dry instead of needing to run it thru the dishwasher every day. It’s so fast and powerful in blending my blended coffee drinks. I haven’t tried it with other things because I solely got it for my drinks but I am saving a ton of money not going to coffee shops and my drinks taste exactly how I want them! I have already paid for this blender in the money I’ve saved not going to get my coffee at a shop! I would highly recommend it for the value! If it could blend my ice every day it can blend anything!" —JC

    Price: $69.99 (originally $79.99)

    21. A 24-set of food storage containers so you can buy all the things you need for your pantry and still keep it perfectly organized. There's nothing better than airtight containers that keep your snacks fresh and cupboards clean.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have been using them for a few weeks now and LOVE THEM!! They make my pantry and cupboards look so much better and they are so organized now. I have already ordered two more sets! They were super easy to work with and got me another set of containers right away. I promise you will be satisfied with your purchase." —Sarah E.

    Price: $59.47 (for a set of 24)

    22. A pack of fruit fly traps because now that the weather is getting warmer, the bugs are starting to come out once again. With these, you can have delicious fresh produce minus all the little insects that typically with it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We came home after a vacation to find the kitchen had been invaded by fruit flies! I didn't want to use anything toxic in my kitchen and these were perfect. Just peel off the front and back paper (be careful, they are VERY sticky) and put them where you need them. I filled coffee mugs with dry rice and stuck the base of the traps in those. That way I could put them anywhere (counter, window ledges, etc.)" —Busy Mom

    Price: $8.89+ (for a pack of 12)

    23. A digital thermometer you could use in any room in the house, but is especially useful to keep in the kitchen as a way of monitoring the temp when you're cooking all day long (because the only thing that should be frying in there is whatever's in your air fryer).

    two of the thermometers next to each other on a kitchen counter
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This easy to use, AAA battery-operated device clearly displays temperature & humidity. It has a stand and a magnet so that you can put it anywhere. Temps can be displayed in either Fahrenheit or Celsius— just flip a switch on the back. It also keeps track of your record temp range and humidity, for the life of the unit. The box comes with a battery and contact Information if you need help. Overall this little unit does what it says and what I need." —HL

    Price: $10.99+ (available in packs of one or two)

    24. An ice cube tray that comes with a lid so you can have cold drinks and not worry about funky-tasting ice, likely the result of other things in your fridge. Trust me, it's an issue.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are great for all my extra herbs in the garden. Olive oil & herbs in the freezer and ready to go in the fry pan for extra flavor. Easy to clean and pop out." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $6.99+ (available in two sizes)

    25. A massive pack of Bounty rolls because you can never have too many paper towels in your home — so you might as well stock up while ya can.

    the bounty rolls
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Bounty makes the best paper towel. I can clean so much with just one sheet. For example, I can get one towel damp and it will clean up and trap dry crumbs from my counter without just pushing them around and then ending up all over the floor. Then I can get that same towel wet and wipe down a large counter, then rinse it out wring it dry spray the counter with cleaner, and get my granite counter sparkling clean. But I'm not done with this wipe yet! It has lots of use left, but since it is already used I'll clean things like the sink basin, the walls, and then before I'm finally done I'll spot clean a few areas on the floor, or use it to wipe down the trash can. So one wipe is all it takes to clean several different things. These rolls are going to last so long! I almost look forward to cleaning with these, because the texture helps them scrub which makes cleaning easier." —Michelle

    Price: $18.49

    26. A dish drying rack if you don't have a ton of counter space but need something to let your plates drip dry after a good scrub.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I don't have much counter space and don't hand wash many dishes. A full dish drainer doesn't make sense in my house. I saw this as a Daily special and thought, what the heck, give it a try. Works like a charm. Just enough space for my few hand-washed items while not taking up valuable counter space. Win-win situation. The rubber edges hold it in place nicely so there is no worry about it sliding around with glasses or anything delicate sitting on it. When not in use, roll it up and put it under the counter as it takes up almost no space. Love it." —A. Elizabeth Wilkins

    Price: $11.86

    27. A pack of reusable straws that are stainless steel which means they're durable *and* will help you cut down on single-use plastics. Plus, they come with toppers you can use as buffers for your lips with super hot or super cold drinks.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these straws. The pack comes with several different lengths and types (some straight, some bent). I use these with my Tervis cups and they work very well. The little plastic tips that fit on the end of the straws are great for keeping your teeth from hitting the metal. The straws and the tips are easy to clean with the included brushes. I was going through a lot of plastic straws before I bought these. I can see them lasting a long time." —gma

    Price: $7.99+ (available in five colors)

    28. A Cuisinart cast iron grill press to satisfy all your barbecue needs this summer and cut your grill time wayyyyy down. The meal possibilities are endless and you won't have to wait so long to enjoy your cooking creations.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Met my expectations, very happy with the results. Good weight, good price. So far, I have used it on grilled chicken breast meat. Before, it would take three min to cook each side. With the press, it reduces to one and a half to two minutes on each side. The heat is more evenly on meat. You really do not need an expensive grill press. This one works great!" —MS L

    Price: $13.91

    29. And salt and pepper grinders that will elevate both your meals and your decor. Add a pop of pink with some Himalayan salt and voila, you'll have a kitchen worthy of its own Pinterest board.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: I will say, I've only had this for about two months, but so far, I love these mills! The flavor is so enhanced when you have fresh cracked black pepper, and I've been using Himalayan pink salt, and the flavor there is enhanced as well! Everything I cook benefits from having these mills in my kitchen. I've been thoroughly satisfied with the adjustable coarseness of the mills (I've got the salt set finer than the pepper, as the flavor from Himalayan salt is stronger than table salt). So far, I've had no problems." —Sheila

    Price: $12.94
