Basically every recipe ever calls for garlic — and this nifty tool crushes it into an easy-to-use paste. It even comes with a rolling tube to help peel your bulbs without getting it all over your fingers.

Promising review: "I have had it for over a year with no problems. No sticking of the handles, no rust, easy to clean. I use it daily if not multiple times a day as I cook meals for two other households as well, so honestly at times it gets used 15x a day when cooking up monthly meals." —Cymbeline

Promising review: "One of our traditions is for me to make pancakes every Saturday morning. And, try as I might, I couldn't avoid batter drips all around the stove top and surrounding counters. This little jewel solved the problem. Only the tiniest leakage, and that was into my spoon rest on which I placed it after each use. Easy to control pancake-size. Cleaned up perfectly in the dishwasher." —Rev Rider

Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

3. A pizza stone to fool your guests into thinking you ordered from a fancy pizzeria. Plop your pizza on top, throw it in the oven or on top of the grill and then marvel at the crispy crust and evenly melted cheese.


Promising review: "I love my pizza stone. Frozen pizzas from the grocery store actually get a nice crisp crust, never soggy like before. I keep the stone in the bottom shelf of my oven when not in use and it helps regulate the oven temp. I've noticed other things like oven fries come out crispier and less soggy when I do this. I highly recommend this!" —Chelsea

Get it from Amazon for $17.07+ (available in five sizes).

4. An absolutely genius tool that lets you easily spread butter on your pans before cooking or directly on hot foods like corn on the cob or fresh bread. No more ~butter fingers~!

Get it from TheMagnetack on Etsy for $11.95.

5. A Ninja coffee maker that can brew a full pot of ground coffee OR a single-serve K-cup in the same machine. It's a major space saver and will basically turn your kitchen into your new favorite coffee spot.

Daniel Boan/BuzzFeed

I recently had the chance to try this out and I am OBSESSED. It's by Ninja, the brand behind my favorite air fryer that I use at least once a week, so I knew their version of a coffee maker wouldn't let me down — and I was right. I first used it to brew up a pot of the cheap-yet-trusty Folgers coffee I always have in my cabinet — and it came out sooooo much stronger and richer than it does in the $20 coffee maker I was previously using. However, the K-Cup attachment is truly where the magic lies. It starts brewing up a cup in mere seconds and has multiple brew options to choose from, including a 'rich' setting for a bolder flavor and an 'over ice' setting that makes it strong enough to stand up to melting ice cubes.

My favorite feature is the attached milk frother, which swings out from the side and is super easy to use. Just place the attachment in a cup filled with hot or cold milk, push the button on top to lightly froth for about 30 seconds, then pour it on top of your coffee to add a cloud-like layer of foam. My at-home coffee game has been seriously upgraded — I don't think I can ever go back to my old $20 machine.

Get it from Amazon and Ninja Kitchen for $229.99.

6. Or a bestselling French press for the caffeine connoisseur who would never dream of using a regular drip coffee maker. It's also simple enough for beginners, so you'll become a proud coffee snob in no time.,

Promising review: "In short, the coffee is markedly better than my electric drip coffee maker. The physical design of the press is sleek, and the directions are simple and informative. I have thoroughly enjoyed my first few forays into French press coffee!" —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $21.20.

7. A handheld milk frother so you can try all those delicious-looking latte recipes you've seen on TikTok. For the cost of about three cappuccinos, you can whip up all the frothed milk topping you could ever want.,

Promising review: "This makes the creamiest froth ever! I am completely blown away by the results of this device. I had no idea that I could make froth at home like this. This changes my whole cappuccino experience!!!" —Wells Family

Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in 14 colors).

8. A stuffed burger press to seriously upgrade your grilling game. This gadget creates a perfect little pocket in your patty that you can stuff to your heart's desire.


Promising review: "Love to grill burgers and my wife loves to stuff our veal/lamb/pork/beef burgers with all sorts of cheeses and veggies. Problem has been that sometimes the burgers crumble on the grill and don't look so appetizing when served. No more. The burger press burgers are loaded up but look just perfect when plated or laid on a big roll. And I don't have to worry about them on the grill. You can really load them up and they cook perfectly. Simple but great product." —Jerry O'Connor

Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

9. A bottle of Krud Kutter that does exactly that: cuts through the crud. It's nontoxic and fragrance-free, so you can safely spray it on any food-prep surfaces.

Promising review: "I used this all over my kitchen and it worked great. While I was in the cleaning mood, I decided to try to conquer the inside door of my oven. I didn't realize how baked on that grease was!!! Well, I sprayed the Krud Kutter and let it rest for about five minutes. Took a brillo pad and with just a few scrubs the inside glass door of my oven was sparkling clean. Great product." —Lisa De

Get it from Amazon for $3.44.

10. A nonabrasive, bleach-free cleaning and polishing powder you can sprinkle on everything from cookware, sinks, stoves, bathtubs, and toilets.

It'll remove rust, tarnish, stains, and mineral deposits from stainless steel, porcelain, ceramic, copper alloys, fiberglass, Corian, brass, bronze, chrome, and aluminum.

Promising review: "I bought this after seeing numerous recommendations, and after years of searing and occasionally burning things in my stainless pans, it was time to try to bring them to a better state. Not only did this easily scrub off the latest culinary leavings, it scrubbed off the years of buildup of oil, fat, cooking spray, and whatever else that have been continually baked on in the oven, stove and dishwasher. A little powder, a dash of water, a quick, light scrub,'s gone? How is that possible? What's in this stuff? I do not know, I do not care. After scrubbing my enamel stove top in a fraction of the time with no scratches and better results, I became thoroughly convinced the contents of BKF is not of this realm. It's magic." —Bulb

Get it from Amazon for $7.29 (also available in packs of two and three).

11. Or! A bottle of pre-mixed Bar Keepers Friend soft cleanser that can remove stains and burnt-on food with ease — meaning you can quickly get your stove top to look like less of a disaster.

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two sizes or a pack of two).

12. gas range cleaning spray that takes just seconds to cut through grime and grease and eliminate any evidence that your roommates are total slobs. Now I'm just projecting.

Reviewer photo of dirty gas range burner

This stuff is THE TRUTH. My roommate is the best, but let's just say wiping down the stove after cooking is not one of her favorite activities. I'm not particular fond of doing the dishes, so I guess we're even. Anyways, I spray this on a few times a week, let it sit for about five minutes, then wipe with a cloth and it removes EVERYTHING. Like, every little spot of caked-on grease and burnt crumbs come off with just one wipe.

Get a two pack from Amazon for $14.69 (also available in packs of three and eight).

13. A cooktop cleaning kit to chip away at burnt-on messes and make your ceramic cooktop look as shiny and flawless as the day you moved in.

Reviewer before-and-after photo showing results of using cooktop cleaning kit

The kit comes with a bottle of cleaner, a cleaning pad and a heavy-duty scraper that are all designed to break down burnt-on foods and tough stains.

Promising review: "This works amazingly! I hadn't thoroughly scrubbed my glass cooktop in years — I only wiped them down with random multi cleaners which never seemed to do much. Then a friend recommended this product — AMAZING! The included scrubbers and scrapers really make the difference. As others have said it will leave your cooktop shiny and new — even marks that had been on there for years came almost completely off: 98% better." —B. Swartwood

Get it from Amazon for $11.29.

14. An all-natural oven scrub made with gritty pumice stone so you can really go to town on that pizza that exploded and left a mess everywhere. It'll even clean all the hard-to-reach spots on your racks and oven door that you usually overlook.


Promising review: "Finally tackled the rings on our stove top with this scrub and a reusable paper towel (as I was worried about using a scourer on an easily scratched surface) and the rings came right off! These are those 'oh, crap, the pot boiled over' rings that I ignored that lead to my stove top looking a bit crusty. The oven scrub ate them right off and left my oven and stove top looking great." —Jessie Bono

Promising review: "Love this product! It does exactly what it is designed to do. It really works, has prevented many boil-overs for me. I can now make my oatmeal, pasta, or chicken broth without any worry of a messy spill-over. I no longer have to stand near the stove to watch for the boil-over point, I can do other things or get distracted while this marvelous invention takes care of whatever I am simmering or boiling. It is a great value, you get two of them and I gave one to my son who cooks. It is also easy to clean, you can pop the yellow flower off for easier cleaning." —Hey Mom

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two colors and various multipacks).

17. A set of silicone muffin liners that are easily washable and reusable. The silicone material means your muffins and cupcakes will glide right out so you can immediately get to snacking.,

Promising review: "I absolutely love these things. Can't believe I waited so long to try them. They don't come clean in my dishwasher for some reason, but hand-washing is probably better for them anyway. The jumbo size in particular is my favorite, but I have used them all. The others are about the same size as the disposable liners and the little rectangular ones are perfect for brownies and cute little banana bread muffins. May get a second set so I will have enough to do a full batch of cupcakes in one type." —Teresa A.

Get a pack of 36 from Amazon for $13.99 (also available in jumbo sizes).

18. An easy-to-use circular sandwich cutter so you can make your own crustless PB&J without overpaying for those frozen versions.

Promising review: "You're not going to find a better built, better functioning spiralizer anywhere! I wasn't planning on buying one — I started out just researching. After researching the various models and reading reviews, I thought, 'I gotta get me one of those.' This is probably one of the best purchases I've ever made. My girlfriend just bought one two weeks ago and after seeing mine, said there's no comparison. She's sending hers back!" —Marie Walker

Get it from Amazon for $25.97+ (available in two sizes).

20. This rapid egg cooker so you can quickly cook all of those eggs sitting in your fridge before they go bad. Whether you like 'em boiled, poached, or scrambled, this little device does it all.,

Promising review: "If you are on the fence about getting one of these, GET ONE. It really is as easy as it sounds to have a perfectly cooked egg, no guesswork. Soft boiled eggs took me about 11 minutes to make. Just have an ice bath ready next to the cooker and let the eggs sit for a minute or two in there...peels come right off :) Makes healthy eating a breeze in the morning! Where has this been all my life!??!?" —rebecca

Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in eight colors).

21. A cold brew maker that's so easy to use and will save you tons of money by eliminating your daily iced coffee run.

Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

Just add coarse-ground coffee into the mesh filter, pour water into the pitcher, screw the lid on (with the filter attached and submerged in the water), let it brew for 12–24 hours, and serve. You can pour it straight over ice cubes, or cut it with water or milk. Read our review of the Tayeka cold brew maker!

Promising review: "This coffee maker is my BEST FRIEND! I use this everyday, it's so easy to use! My coffee comes out perfect every time. I'm a cold coffee drinker and I put about 8–10 scoops of freshly ground coffee into the filter. I let it sit overnight and the next morning, I remove the filter and dump the grounds. It makes four days worth of coffee and I love that it's ready to go for me, especially since I wake up at 4:50 a.m. and I need to make my coffee quickly! It's very easy to clean as well." —Panda

Get it from Amazon for $22.20+ (available in two sizes and three colors).

22. An electric hot pot so you can whip up some stews, noodles, and sautéd meats and veggies when you need some good comfort food.


Promising review: "I'm a vegetarian flight attendant and sometimes have trouble while on the 'road' eating well. I bought this and it's now a 'must have' item in my luggage. I've showed it to many of my colleagues who have also purchased this ... Boils water in just minutes! My first photo was taken 22 minutes after I arrived in my hotel room at 1 a.m. Restaurant was closed, I was starving. I took dehydrated vegetables, some uncooked pasta, vegetable stock and water. Gorgeous hot steaming veggie soup in 22 minutes." —A. Keeney

Get it from Amazon for $35.99.

23. A set of plastic storage containers to keep your produce tasting fresh for much longer. If you constantly find yourself tossing out strawberries you totally forgot you bought, these containers will basically pay for themselves.

Read our full review of the Rubbermaid FreshWorks food storage containers!

Promising review: "I wish I would have gotten these sooner. I bought strawberries for my children, and then I forgot about them. I found them in the back of the refrigerator almost TWO WEEKS later, and they were still good. The real miracle is how long it keeps zucchini. Zucchini starts to get mushy in the crisper drawer after just a few days. Again, these miracle containers have kept it fresh for close to two weeks now. I've kept cut lettuce, cut cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, zucchini, sliced bell peppers, strawberries, blackberries, cut jicama, and carrots in these containers. I've had fantastic results with all of them." —Laura

24. This plant-based cleaner so you can finally wipe away those pesky fingerprints and grease marks that are making your stainless-steel appliances look extra grimy.

Reviewer's before/after of their kitchen stainless steel (fingerprinted before, shiny after)

Promising review: "If you have a Sub-Zero fridge, you know the struggle is real when it comes to keeping it clean. It's a different type of stainless steel and shows all product residue. Then I found this stuff. Oh wow! A few seconds of polishing and it looks amazing!! it has never looked this good, this shiny, and this clean! Best product ever!" —Katerina

Get the set of cleanser and polish from Amazon for $16.95.

25. A device to turn frozen fruit into a creamy soft-serve dessert so you can curb a sweet tooth without all the extra sugar.

Promising review: "This deserves 50 stars! Oh my gosh why did it take me so long to find this amazing gadget! Ice cream lovers, fruit lovers, sorbet lovers — THIS IS THE BEST INVENTION! So easy, quick, delicious and magical!!" —Jackie

Get it from Amazon for $49.95+ (available in five colors).

26. A corn stripper so you can enjoy some delicious corn without the pesky cob. It's perfect for saving a few coins and making your own Chipotle bowls at home.,

Promising review: "I bought this to help me prepare corn for freezing and canning. I honestly wasn't expecting it to work as well as it actually did (LOL my track record with kitchen gizmos isn't the best). First, it's very easy to grip (and I have bad carpal tunnel so this can be an issue for me), and the way it's designed makes it very safe to use, there's no chance of fingers near the cutting blade. I used it initially on a dozen ears of farm stand sweet corn. I blanched the ears for four minutes then put them in an ice water bath. From there, I put them through this corn stripper. It took very little effort on my part, and the cobs were really well cleaned off. I did do a little knife scraping on the smaller tapered ends of the ears, but only there — it cleanly took off all the rest. It took me longer to blanch two batches of ears than it did to strip off all the corn, this made such quick work of the job. This first batch I'm intending to freeze, but I'm planning on canning a huge batch very soon and this fantastic little gizmo is going to shave off hours of work (pun completely intended!). I'm a VERY happy purchaser!" —Cynthia Jendrejcak

Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

27. A pack of cleaning tablets that will clean your dishwasher for you, because it's probably way dirtier than you imagine. These will break down lime and mineral buildup so your dishes come out looking as sparkly as they do in all those dish soap commercials.

Promising review: "After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher, due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and just not getting clean. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh in Good Housekeeping magazine. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I added that to my order. I did not expect the results I got! The glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I am amazed!" —Sheila

Get a six-pack from Amazon for $5.98.

28. A chainmail scrubber so you can actually clean all of the burned-on grime on your cast-iron skillets without removing the seasoning or causing damage. It's also safe for use on waffle makers, griddles, and everything else you barely bother cleaning.

29. A microwave steam cleaner, because the mess in there doesn't just disappear when you close the door and walk away. This little device uses the power of sheer anger (and steam) to eliminate dirt and stains from your microwave.

Promising review: "This little device is great and it's super simple. Fill to the lines with vinegar and water, nuke for seven minutes, let it sit for two minutes, then wipe clean. My embarrassingly super-gross microwave wiped completely clean with a couple of paper towels. I highly recommend this." —UglyPetty

Get it from Amazon for $7.33+ (available in four colors).

30. A peel-and-stick faux-gel tile backsplash to fool all your guests into thinking you gave your kitchen a complete overhaul — but in reality, you just quickly applied some heat-resistant stickers!

Promising review: "We did a kitchen facelift this summer, repainting and making everything look fresh. We were looking at the Home Depot version of these, which are more than double the price. We decided to go for these instead and they are amazing!! I put them up myself in about two hours. I did buy the adhesive spray just in case but it wasn’t needed, even for the few I had to peel off and restick to center correctly. These aren’t too difficult to apply but definitely require patience. 100% worth the buy for a DIY affordable update!" —Hope Consilvio

Get a 10-pack from Amazon for $31.99 (visit the shop page for more colors).

31. A set of cleaning K-Cups that'll remove all of the grime in your Keurig machine. You'd be surprised how much coffee residue and old coffee grinds can get stuck in the dispenser.,

Promising review: "I bought this product because the needle in my Keurig 2.0 keeps clogging, causing inconsistent brew and taste. These cleaning cups fixed both of my issues and I especially liked that it was really quick and easy to use… I put the cleaning pod in and ran one cycle, then took the pod out and ran a rinse cycle to clean out any leftover grinds. FAST, EASY, and GREAT results…VERY HAPPY!!" —Corey West

Promising review: "This worked great for our coffee maker. The picture on the left (above) is the first batch of water, including the packet of cleaner. The second was already much cleaner and the third and fourth batches of water were completely clear. Our coffee tastes much less bitter now." —Amazon Customer

Get a pack of three packets from Amazon for $6.77.

33. A garbage disposal cleaner that foams up to help break down any food residue that's been lingering in there for far too long. I'm starting to feel like adulthood is just learning about all the things you never realized you were supposed to be cleaning.


Promising review: "Seeing is believing. Not only does it do a great job, but you can see it happening. It doesn’t just mask the smell and leave a lemon scent like some products, it cleans too and looks fun. Idk. Blue foam comes out and that’s good enough for me." —sylvie yah

34. A bottle of Hope's Perfect Sink cleaner and polish to make any stainless-steel, cast-iron, porcelain, or acrylic appliance as shiny as the day you got it.

A side by side of a rusty sink next to the same sink now clean and shiny after using the product

Promising review: "Every once in a while you stumble on a product on Amazon that you buy on a whim because of the good reviews. When you actually receive the product and use it, you can't believe how good it really is. This is definitely one of those products. Truth be told, the stainless-steel sink in my house is 14 years old. While we have cleaned the sink thoroughly every two weeks since we have moved in, we have never polished it or used a product such as this one. The first time I applied it to the sink, we could tell that there was an amazing difference. In fact, the sink sparkled so brightly from the overhead kitchen lights, it really was too bright to view! You can tell that this product is 'doing its job' because a black film comes off of the stainless steel after you clean it." —From Wyoming to California via NYC

Get it from Amazon for $3.97.

35. A cord organizer with an adhesive sticker you can place on the back of your stand mixer (or any other appliance!) so you'll have a place to wrap your cord instead of letting it dangle all over your counter. This is honestly genius and I want to put one on every appliance I own.

38. And a pack of all-natural bottle-cleaning tablets that'll help remove stains and odors from any water bottles or coffee tumblers that you've left unwashed for an embarrassingly long time. It happens.

These are biodegradable and odor-free.

Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting Hydro Flask coffee mug — I tried everything. A bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand-new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another Hydro Flask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING." —Amazon Customer
