    39 Things I Think You Could Seriously Use, Even If You Have A Tiny Kitchen

    You'll for sure be able to squeeze in a well-reviewed air fryer, mouth-watering hot sauce, and a Baby Yoda clean/dirty dishwasher magnet.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An AeroGarden hydroponic garden that'll help you be one of THOSE people who use fresh homegrown herbs in their recipes. Totally worth the countertop space.


    It grows up to six plants at a time and includes seeds for Genovese Basil, Curly Parsley, Dill, Thyme, Thai Basil, and Mint.

    Promising review (for the pic on left): "I have a black thumb which I think is important to add to this review. I planted everything photographed 1/3/19 and I took this photo this morning (2/5/19) it takes care of itself and they grow a little bit more each day. It's the most exciting part of my morning routine.. will my coffee brews I admire my plants! I used the basil and parsley from the packet that came with the kit. But I ordered my own seeds along with the 'plant anything kit' to grow jalapeno + poblano peppers, Roma tomatoes and marijuana." —kristy campbell

    Get it from Amazon for $94.95.

    2. A set of measurement decals you can glance at rather than googling "how many teaspoons in a tablespoon" for the millionth time. (BTW, the answer is three.)

    inside of a kitchen cabinet with the decals and measuring cups hanging.

    Note that this kit includes just the decals and measurement labels, not the horizontal holders or hooks for the measuring cups and spoons. 

    Promising review: "Bought these for my mom. I applied them inside her baking cupboard and it makes doing conversions for recipes a breeze. So convenient." —Kelly C.

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99.

    3. Or a kitchen scale with measurement conversions if you're a baking fiend.

    scale with measurement conversions on it

    It measures cups, ounces, grams, milliliters, pounds, and fluid ounces.

    Promising review: "I've been using this in the kitchen on a regular basis. It works great for making a balanced sourdough starter feed. The gram setting is extremely precise and sensitive. So far I have not had to change the batteries and it's been a few months." —Anaya

    Get it from Amazon for $21.34.

    4. An Instant Pot – it can handle 9 (!!!!) kitchen tasks in one precious lil' appliance body so dinner's ready as soon as you walk in the door. Reviewers call it their "secret weapon," which I guess isn't so secret anymore.,

    This baby serves as a rice cooker, pressure cooker, slow cooker, steamer, sauté, yogurt maker, sterilizer, and warmer. Pinterest has been all about the Instant Pot for a few years and you should really hop on this bandwagon. Just check out our full review of the Instant Pot and Instant Pot recipes that'll basically cook themselves. Still unconvinced? Look at all the yummy Amazon reviewer photos.

    Promising review: "It makes dinner fast and easy, and if you're like my family and default to vegetarian due to the simple fact that dealing with meat is too much with two kids and everyone getting home at 6:30 p.m., it's a godsend for better protein in your life." —Noel

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95+ (available in 3-, 6-, or 8-quart sizes). Also check out an 11-in-1 Instant Pot with an air fryer.

    5. And some slow-cooker liners to make cleanup a total cinch. Sometime a super easy cleanup can help motivate yourself to cook (or maybe that's just me).

    the liners in a slower cooker dividing into two sections with two kinds of dip

    I use these and they're THE BEST.

    Get a box of six liners from Amazon for $2.94.

    6. Plus a trio of Instant Pot magnets to help answer those questions (sorry, Siri) about how long everything cooks in that incredibly helpful appliance. This lil' bit of help can help prevent disasters *and* convince you to use this appliance more for at-home dinners rather than takeout or restaurant meals.

    the three magnets

    (Psst, my brother and I bought these magnets for my mom for a Christmas gift!)

    Promising review: "I bought these for my daughter. She is thrilled with them — just what she needed for her Instant Pot." —KerrieS

    Get them from Amazon for $6.99.

    7. A family size air fryer with an auto-shutoff so you don't overcook those delectable wings someone will assume you picked up from somewhere. Plus it'll help you finally cook the elusive salmon fillet.

    Promising review: "We are really loving this air-fryer! The large basket size makes it perfect for even cooking, even for one or two people. I’m happy that I bought the larger size instead of the 3.7-quart. My husband is a meat eater, and I am not. We cook different foods for most meals. It’s easy to just wash it quickly in between, although adding a sheet of aluminum foil to the bottom of the pan enables us to just wash the basket between foods, since otherwise we would need to wait for the unit to cool down." —Wanda Brooks

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99+ (available in five colors).

    8. A rapid egg cooker to get your favorite breakfast or salad topping *just* how you like it, rather than tossing improperly cooked eggs (for the millionth time). Maybe you'll love it so much, you'll buy two(!) like my friend Marissa.

    the egg cooker

    Promising review: "If hard-boiled eggs are at all a part of your life, this device will change everything. Reclaim lost hours, catch up on missed TV, reconnect with old friends and family — anything is possible with the free time you'll find at your disposal as you drop six eggs into this beast, press a button, and then walk away. What will you do? High-intensity exercise? Model building? Learn a second language? I hear your concern. 'What if I become so engrossed in my newfound love of taxonomy that I forget about my eggs?' Fear not, efficient chef. Like the trump of Gabriel himself, the unmistakable tone of this technological marvel could rouse the dead and will bring you running to your fresh-and-ready ova's side. The Dash Go Rapid Egg Cooker is what mankind has been working towards since the first roundish stone was shaped into a wheel. Witness the apex of human innovation! Did not love the poaching tray." —J. Mercer Crenshaw

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in seven colors). Also check out the double-decker version.

    9. A variety pack of A Dozen Cousins ready-to-eat seasoned beans, an extremely tasty recipe of a dinner staple. You only have to put the bag in the microwave for 60 seconds, which'll help you concentrate on the other parts of your meal. (I love the Trini Chickpea Curry with rice for a super satisfying weekday lunch.) Trust me, this is worth the kitchen cabinet space.


    The founder based his flavorful creations off his own Creole, Caribbean, and Latin kitchen.

    Promising review: "Who writes a review about beans? Somebody who loves beans but had given up on them, until now. This is a great product. Canned beans from my local supermarket are always a disappointment so I stopped getting them. I don't have time to cook beans myself but A Dozen Cousins beans are fresh and taste terrific. I am trying to eat healthier and these are a great way to do that. I've been trying to avoid packaged, processed foods but the natural ingredients make these different. I can feel good about eating them. The beans are whole and not mashed up like in cans. All of the varieties are seasoned well and versatile. I've had them on their own, in salads and in wrap sandwiches. I'm really happy to have found these and hope they continue to add new flavors and products. Do yourself a favor and order some. You won't regret it." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $24.99.

    10. And a variety pack of delish fully-cooked Indian chana that'll quickly heat up in the microwave and satisfy any takeout cravings you may have. I've tried all of these and they are SO good.

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    Maya Kaimal is a legacy Indian food brand founded by its namesake (a two time award-winning, best-selling Indian cookbook author) in 2003. It sells tons of shelf-stable pantry items that are great if you're like me and HORRIBLE at planning out meals.

    I'm queen of convenience foods (though really am trying to cook more!) but get bored very easily with what I eat. Seriously, every day is a struggle to not order off a food delivery app. (Hey, I'm supporting the local economy!) I've tried all of the varieties from this pack and have found them all to be super satisfying and filling when I pair them with some long grain rice. They make a VERY easy WFH day lunch that doesn't leave me hangry by 3 p.m. To prep, you simply open the package a few inches and put it in the microwave to heat. I'm no expert on Indian food but have eaten a fair bit of it in my life and I find that these are super flavorful but won't leave you breathing fire. *And* if you have leftovers, I simply leave it in the package, close it with a chip clip, and store it vertically in my fridge! You can see the Chickpeas + Coconut + Kale above with the brand's Turmeric + Cumin Surekha Rice.

    Get six packs from Amazon for $24.99 (also check out the Dal variety pack).

    11. Plus a spicy vindaloo simmer sauce from the same brand you can dump in a pan with chicken, veggies, whatever for a delicious result. Once you have this, you'll always keep some in your pantry

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    Like I've professed, I'm not the BEST cook but adore a saucey dish. I've had great success with Maya Kaimal's shelf-stable sauces for making dinners that are super tasty, satisfying, and good enough to boast about on Instagram stories. Here, you can see me using my Always Pan where I threw in some bell pepper and chicken for a super saucey dish I served up with some long-grain rice I unearthed from my pantry. The directions are very user-friendly and not intimidating! If I can do it, you can do it.

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $19.99 (and check out the brand's other sauces).

    12. A couple of pot minders to prevent some spill over that always seems to ruin a cooking session, even if you fully recover after! (In the grand scheme, they won't take up TOO much room.)

    pot on stove with the pot minder stopping water from boiling over

    Promising review: "Are you a terrible cook? If you are, buy this! I can't cook. Every time I try to boil something, it's EVERYWHERE. These things are a lifesaver." —jenna

    Get a set of one small and one large from Amazon for $16.99.

    13. A manual food chopper for quick work of herbs, fruits, veggies, and ice in case your knife skills could use some practice or you just wanna make food prep a lil' more fun. Plus it'll take up MUCH less room than a food processor.

    Reviewer before and after photos showing roughly chopped veggies finely minced by the chopper

    It's also dishwasher-safe (top rack only!) so cleanup is super simple.

    Promising review: "This is great for cutting lots of veggies super fast. All you have to do is rough chop down your veggies toss them in and give it four to five pulls for perfectly diced chunks for salsa or toppings on eggs or tacos. It comes with a handy cover too so all you have to do is rinse the blade and toss the container in the fridge or cooler." —Kevin B.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.30+ (also available in green).

    14. Silicone baking mats so you don't have to scrape those sheet pans clean or worry about your meal getting burnt. Folks use this for everything from cookies to pies to pizza to roasted veggies. They'll also help you seriously cut down on aluminum foil and parchment paper storage space.,

    Promising review: "Used for the first time last night to bake some salmon stuffed with crabmeat. The mat worked, kept everything clean, and the meal came out perfect. These are much easier to clean than my other baking mats that are textured too." —Molli

    Get two from Amazon for $13.99.

    15. A fish turner – it'll help you FINALLY make a decent salmon filet at home that still looks presentable. It'll also be clutch for flipping pancakes and transferring hot gooey cookies from the baking sheet. (I use mine ALL the time and have an absurdly small kitchen.)

    the fish turner with a salmon filet on a frying pan

    Promising review: "This is my go-to turner when I'm cooking for anything — not just fish. I'm pretty particular about turners, which sounds odd, but if they aren't thin enough at the edge, it's hard to get them under the food. Metal is important so it's not floppy, and the length is great because it can hold larger pieces of food. Worth it." —Mary Schumann

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in two sizes).

    16. A broom and mop organizer you can mount on a closet or kitchen wall for a tidy "after" so you won't worry about an avalanche when you open that door or merely LOOK in the direction of where you've leaned your mop and broom.,

    Promising review: "Hard to get a good picture in my very small pantry area, but this hanger works great for keeping my cleaning tools at hand yet off the floor. Mounting template worked great and it came with a couple bags of screws and anchors so I had the right ones for my wall. I would buy this again." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97.

    17. A Frywall that'll fit around your pan and contain popping oil or spillover while you work on the house special. Nothing ruins an edible masterpiece like hot grease landing on your hand...or your couch if your kitchen is THAT small.

    cooktop with a pan with the cone-shaped frywall creating a larger guard to catch oil from it

    BTW, it's BPA-free, FDA-compliant, heat-resistant up to 450 degrees F, and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I was frying chicken with lard (yes, I use lard! My chicken is NOT health food.) and I put too much in the frying pan. A few minutes after putting the chicken in, the lard began to bubble up and if I hadn't had the Frywall in place, it would have spilled all over my stove. The Frywall creates a seal around my frying pan, stopping spillovers. Splatters don't escape, it's easy to work around it (turning my chicken over), and when I'm done, I just throw it in the dishwasher. If you do any frying at all, you want the Frywall. Helpful" —Carl G Brown

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95 (available in two colors).

    18. A beet and fresno hot sauce to doctor up most anything you have. Cheers to this when you're feeling uncreative.

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    Hot N Saucy is a woman-owned and NYC-based small biz that has some super flavorful sauce options.

    I've had this sauce over eggs, with grilled chicken and plant-based breaded "chicken" pieces seen here. It hasn't disappointed for anything! I'm somewhat obsessed with hot sauce and have five in my fridge at any given time but find myself reaching for this one often. The beet gives it a sweet twist and the fresno still gives it a bit of a kick that's not *too* hot. (Sometimes I like stuff that's too hot, but people that are OK with medium spicy would be happy with this.)

    Get it from Hot N Sauce for $10.

    19. Under-cabinet lights that'll make your kitchen look so much more expensive and help set a mood that'll actually make you wanna cook. It's not like you were doing anything with that inch or so on the underside of your cabinets anyway.

    kitchen with plain white stock cabinets with lights underneath them to make it look so much better

    Promising review: "I had my doubts but I thought, what the heck, for the price I'd give them a try. I am in real estate and known as a lighting snob. The first thing I look at in a kitchen if there is under cabinet lighting. These are so nice (it helps if you have a lip at the bottom of your cabinets) They are a true white, very bright, and I was lucky they were just the length I needed. I just ordered a set and had them shipped to my mom's as her halogen transformer which is buried in a wall, fried and I drives me nuts that the workspace on the counter is dark. I can't wait until I make the 250-mile drive to install them. I may buy more just to use at our listings!" —pauly

    Get a 10' strand with 60 lights from Amazon for $18.86+ (available in white or yellow lights).

    20. A fridge wall organizer for yogurt cups so you can better see their expiration dates and don't have to dig to unearth your breakfast.

    Storage Theory / Etsy

    Storage Theory is a Cedar Rapids, Iowa-based shop with tons of problem-solving products. 

    Promising review: "Easy to install and it cleared up a ton of space in my fridge." —Tara Ann

    Get it from Storage Theory on Etsy for $10.99.

    21. Soap dispensers that'll jibe better with you stainless-steel sink and kitchen aesthetic than that bottle of branded Dawn. (Sorry Dawn, I <3 you.)

    two bottles sitting at kitchen sink

    Promising review: "I got these for our kitchen (one for hand soap; one for dish soap) and they work perfectly. I added vinyl decals from Etsy and they're even better." —Emily Crall

    Get set of two from Amazon for $12.99.

    22. And labels for your decanted hand and dish soap, lest someone end up with a palmful of Dawn when they're just trying to wash their hands.

    Klein's Kreations / Amazon Handmade

    Promising review: "Cames shipped as described in crush resistant tube, was easy to apply, and look very nice." —emoliver

    Get them from Klein's Kreations on Amazon Handmade for $8.50 (available in 20 colors; also check out a block letter font). 

    23. Minimalist wooden utensils with silicone parts (and a matching container!) to replace those sad, melted plastic flippers you've been using since you moved out of the dorm.


    Can withstand temperatures of -40 degrees F up to 446 degrees F/230 degrees C. Includes 24 tools and holder.

    Promising review: "I love the neutral color, I find them easy to clean, the cup has come in handy even though I wasn’t planning on using it. The measuring cups are a little too flexible for my liking, but it was really amazing finding such a comprehensive set of kitchen tools with a stylist design. I purchased this set because I moved into a new apartment with like zero kitchen equipment and this was the perfect set for me." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $33.99 (available in six color combos).

    24. Swedish dishcloths in some designs you'll wanna show off to replace that icky ole dish brush or sponge. You need something to scrub your dirty dishes. Might as well make it cute!

    lemon print cellulose dishcloth used to wash off lettuce

    Promising review: "Fabulous dishcloths! Better than using a dish rag that gets mildewy and stinky instantly. Pricey, yet economic because they last and last! Throw them in the microwave damp to sanitize each night if desired, or wash in the dishwasher. Of course, can be thrown in with your other towels' regular wash as well! Just don’t use any bleach or softener! Love this brand the best!" —pea dee

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $15.99 (available in 16 designs).

    25. A tea bag holder that'll save you some space, *plus* look nice enough to leave out on the counter for company when you offer up some coffee or tea.

    white tea bag organizer with six removable compartments

    Promising review: "I got this out of desperation for regaining room in my tea/coffee cabinet. Yes, we have a kitchen cabinet devoted just to all of our tea and coffee, and we were running out of space very quickly. I got this smaller version because I knew it would fit without having to adjust the shelves. Can I saw how much I love this? I was able to empty so many boxes from the cabinet, it was not even funny. My only complaint (others have mentioned this as well) is that you cannot fit a whole box in one drawer. I worked around this by designating one of the drawers as 'overflow' with a few different types of tea in it. Also, note that this is only good for teas that come in the envelopes. If you have loose tea bags, they may not work too well in this." —Kitty

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in five colors).

    Prefer a different caffeine source? Perhaps a K-cup organizer would be of interest.

    26. A Baby Yoda dishwasher magnet to keep the fam on the same page as to if that plate was licked clean or washed clean... very important! No more having to run a second cycle because of someone putting in a dirty plate!

    dirty side of the magnet with Baby Yoda eating a frog, clean side of Baby Yoda drinking soup

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    27. And a light saber ice pop holder can keep your paws from freezing while you're trying to to enjoy your fave summer treat.

    Get it from Sewmanyfuntimes on Etsy for $3.50+ (available in multiple quantities).

    28. A hot sauce print featuring the regular suspects for dialing a weeknight dinner up a notch so you'll remember to flavor your food accordingly.

    Get it from Lindsey Kay Co on Society6 for $6.99+ (available in four sizes).

    29. Mounted wine racks for a storage solution that'll free up some kitchen cabinet space and be a super easy way to display any especially decorative glasses.

    under-cabinet wine glass holder with throw rows and enough for nine glasses

    I lucked out with some similar racks already mounted in my apartment (like these!) and I adore them. I love seeing the ornate vintage pink wine glasses I picked up from a church tag sale on mine when I walk through my kitchen or am washing dishes. 

    Get three rows (enough for nine glasses) from Amazon for $17.99.

    30. A cheese slicer – it'll let you create the perfect charcuterie board for your 90 Day Fiance marathon with that Aldi cheese rather than the stuff from the fancy cheese shop downtown.

    person using the cheese slicer on a piece of cheese

    Promising review: "After having several cheaper slicers that didn't last long, it's nice to have this. It's larger, heavier and apparently built to last. I appreciate that it comes with an extra wire (now if I can just figure out how to keep track of the wire until I need it, and remember that it's there.) It works beautifully. Note that to adjust the thickness, you unscrew the two ends of the roller individually. This is less convenient than the one-screw mechanism on some other slicers." —Chuck

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    31. A set of reusable coffee pods you can fill with your favorite ground brew and then toss in your K-Cup machine like normal. This'll put a halt to tons of space spent storing one-time-use pods *and* the plastic waste from them.

    Promising review: "These reusable filter cups work PERFECTLY with our Keurig Elite B-40 model. Usually we use K-Cups, but we received a bag of ground coffee as a gift. We attempted to use our old reusable filter cup that we'd had for an old model Keurig, and it just created a mess and left tons of grounds in the cup. Amazon delivered these K & J cups in a day and they solved the problem. The bottom and sides are mesh, which was not true on my old reusable filter cup, and the little lid snaps shut snugly. They come four to a pack, but I don't see using the others until the one I'm using wears out. Very easy to clean also. So happy to find these!!!" —Jamie von Holstein

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $9.95.

    32. And speaking of K-cups, a pretty-in-pink K-Cup coffee maker made to work with a ~variety~ of coffee pods. Plus, it'll look rather nice sitting on your kitchen countertop!

    a pink and black k-cup coffee machine
    Cool Coffee Clique

    Cool Coffee Clique is a Black woman-owned business that sells an array of coffee products and accessories with an extra *flair* added to them. My colleague Heather Braga owns one and here's what she has to say about it: 

    "I own the coffee machine (seen above) and it makes me happy every morning. I just really enjoy that it's pink and from a small business! It works perfectly well and it's really simple to add more water into the tank when needed."

    Get it from Cool Coffee Clique for $129.99.

    33. A dish squeegee to do all the scraping for you when it comes to unsticking pasta sauce from your plate or scooting food scraps into the garbage disposal.


    Promising review: "If you have ever had to repair or replace a garbage disposal, then I am sure you have been lectured on basically only allowing crumbs to fall into the disposal. This dish squeegee makes prepping dishes for a dishwasher or sink washing a breeze. I hold the dish over the trash can and after a few swipes, the dish is ready for washing. In comparison to using a paper towel, it saves you money, helps protect the environment, and keeps your fingers free from gunk." —She Who Reads

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    34. A six-pack of reusable ziplock bags that'll stand up as you fill them. Cutting down on $$$ one-use plastic *and* feeling like you have an extra set of hands in the kitchen?! Win-win!

    three sizes of reusable ziplock bags

    Promising review: "Very easy to clean and use. I have a smaller fridge so these are better than colored tubs. You can see the items in the bag. Nice thickness." —Judy Sinkular

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful collection on Amazon for $11.50.

    35. A slim cutlery organizer here to prove that you *do* have room for all your cutlery in your tiny kitchen drawer! Scoot over, forks.

    pulled out kitchen drawer with slim cutlery organizer in it and lots of room for other items in the drawer

    Promising review: "Yes, this little utensil tray is really that good! I went from using 12 inches of horizontal space in a lovely but huge wooden utensil tray to about using about 4 inches (whatever the width of this godsend is). It stores my butter knives, steak knives, spoons, forks, and a slew of little teaspoons. I'd guess that the max capacity for each slot is about 10 pieces. For example, I fit four butter knives and four steak knives into the first/knife slot easily, with good wiggle room. This is such a great design. Using this tray opened up about half of my 18-inch wide drawer, which allowed me to decompress the other drawers in my kitchen a bit. I highly recommend this item. It's worth every penny." —Kathleen Cooke

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    36. Fridge bin liners can absorb extra moisture in an effort to keep your produce fresher for longer. PLUS, they'll catch the brunt of messy spills and will be so much easier to clean than taking a drawer out of the fridge and awkwardly scrubbing it down in your sink. I've done that before and it's not great!

    the liners in a produce drawer in an open fridge

    Promising review: "I love these! I really didn’t know how well they would work until this morning. My grandson tipped over a large takeout drink and didn’t tell me. It absorbed so much and saved me so much cleanup. I would have had puddles on all my shelves and under the bottom bin. Thanks to these liners there was very little I had to do to clean up. I didn’t wash them because I had some liner leftover from purchase. If it were just an everyday mess I will have washed them. I am ordering more..what a blessing!!!" —Amazon Customer

    37. An adorable brown sugar-saving maple leaf to keep the sweet ingredient clump-free for your next baking adventure. (No more buying a new package every time you decide to bake!)

    glass jar of brown sugar with a leaf shaped terra cotta piece beside of it

    Promising review: "I really dislike waste, particularly food. I had rock-hard brown sugar about a pound left. Now what as I tried hacking it when I needed it to quite irritation. Then I saw this Brown Sugar Bear. I soaked as directed then put it in my brown sugar container. Why word! It is now fluffy! Highly recommend!" —D Lee

    Get two from Amazon for $9.99.

    38. An easy jar opener — easier than those rubber things — so you won't have to burst a blood vessel in your eye just trying to open a jar of fancy preserves you, tbh, spent way too much on at the *nice* food store in your neighborhood.

    person using the jar opener that latches across the top of the lid and has a handle to move it

    Hand wash when needed.

    Promising review: "I have a similar adjustable jar opener from probably 40+ years ago and it finally wore out at the point I needed most. This new one works great! I had given up finding another jar opener that helps me so much with my arthritis. It is the only one I have found that does not expect me to twist with my painful hand/wrist." —Lorraine Redrock

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    39. And a portable dishwasher if your kitchen doesn't already have one and a sink full of caked-on gunk is what normally keeps you from spending more time cooking. *I* don't have counter space for this, but maybe you do?! (I hope you do.)

    Promising review: "Works better than I thought. Our kitchen cabinets are too low for a countertop dishwasher and the house is too old to try and install a huge dishwasher. We mostly hate washing silverware and cups. This dishwasher is perfect. It is a little small but great on space and I feel it fully sanitized everything. Much better than our sponge and slimy sink washing. *bleh* I am on the third load and so far it's done great. It's just three of us in the house so we really don't need a huge dishwasher. We are also moving soon and it's nice to know I can pack this up and take it with me!" —Kiera Kittie
