    9. An 8-in-1 mandoline if your knife skills just aren't as impressive as you'd like them to be. This'll dice, slice, and cut up veggies and fruits in no time.

    10. A microwaveable pasta cooker because a watched pot never boils, and you don't have time for those mind games. With this device, you'll use less water and have perfectly cooked pasta in about five minutes.

    11. A non-stick wok so that you can whip up a stir fry on those nights that you don't have the energy to plan out an elaborate dinner.

    12. A 24-pack of uniform containers that you can use to store all of your staples and keep your pantry organized. Go the extra mile and alphabetize them — future you will be grateful when you don't have to rifle through the cupboard to find the right ingredient.

    13. An egg cooker if you want to have perfectly hard-boiled eggs every day of the week.

    17. A popcorn popper if your favorite snack is the kind that requires little to no effort to prepare.
