    48 Cleverly-Designed Kitchen Products To Make Your Day A Little Easier

    Good morning to this magical cold brew coffee maker and massive kitchen appliance outlet *only*.

    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 internet-beloved OXO measuring cup with transparent measurements on the side *and* angled in the middle so you can see exactly how much you're measuring from a bird's-eye view.

    It also comes equipped with a soft grip handle and a deeply convenient angled nozzle, and is dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "Our old liquid measuring cups were beginning to get worn and very hard to read. I had seen these angled measuring cups before and wanted to give them a try, so I bought two (2-cup versions) to replace our existing cups. I've only gotten to use them a handful of times, but I can already tell you they are better than traditional measuring cups. I have good eyesight, so reading a traditional measuring cup isn't a problem. However, I've always disliked having to lean over to watch the cup fill up, or start/stop filling to make sure I have what I need. With the overhead reading, I can pour my liquid in and know exactly when to stop. In my opinion, this is the only way measuring cups should be made in the future." —SK

    2. A pair of cut-resistant gloves for anyone whose hands aren't quite as steady as their love for thick-cut meats and thinly sliced veggies — these are designed to be four times stronger (!!) than leather to keep your digits safe.

    Promising review: "I bought the gloves because I had two nasty cuts in quick succession from a cheese grater. Anyone who has had injuries to their fingers knows how difficult it is to continue to do everyday activities and meal preparation while still protecting your wound. I received the gloves quickly after my order and pressed them into use immediately that evening. I am most impressed. My fingers/hands were protected from my very sharp grater and knife while I prepared dinner. I bought two pairs, one to keep and one to give as a gift. I am now going to buy a third pair in a larger size for a friend who also likes to cook but suffers from occasional run-ins with mandolines, graters, and knives. Great product!" —O'Hare

    Psst — check out BuzzFeed's full review of NoCry Cut Resistant Gloves for more deets.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.49 (available in sizes S-XL and two colors).

    3. A universal jar opener that is a true investment in steering clear of my least favorite hobby, "Knocking on the neighbor's door to see if they can get the darn Nutella jar open." Not only will this do the trick every time, but it doesn't take up *any* extra drawer space.

    Amazon

    You can easily install it with peel-and-stick adhesive and the three included screws. It also works on things as small as nail polish and water bottles!

    Promising review: "I've tried a million different tools and gadgets for help opening jars of all sizes, and each one had its own issues! Finally, someone has invented the perfect jar opener that is simple and requires no space in your kitchen drawers or counters. There was one reviewer who suggested placing the opener with the sharp end of the V closest to you and with it placed in the front, right corner under your cabinet. I followed those directions and it works perfectly and easily. I've already placed an order for another one as a gift for my sister." —moorecats

    Get it from Amazon for $15.75.

    4. A cold brew coffee maker so quick and easy to use that your blood might just become 90% caffeine soon. All you have to do is add coffee to the airtight brewer, add your water to the coffee maker, and pop it in the fridge overnight. BOOM, caffeine city.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have been drinking caffeinated beverages everyday for half my life. Usually brewing hot then cooling it down with ice which was quite a process to do every morning. Then I came across this cold brew pitcher and thought I'd give it a try. It's great, easy to use and clean, very convenient, lasts for a couple weeks, I love it! Making a pitcher of coffee take less time than a normal brewer and makes enough for at least one cup a day for about a week, depending on how much coffee concentrate is used. I haven't used my normal coffee or espresso machine since I got this cold brew system. The coffee seems to taste better as well, not a huge difference but it's somewhat noticeable." —Jeremy Birnbaum

    Check out BuzzFeed's review of this cold brew coffee maker for more info!

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in three colors).

    5. A micro-mitt for your fingers perfect for when you need to get teensy things out of hot spaces like air fryers, the microwave, or the toaster (I'm looking DIRECTLY at you, every English muffin I have ever consumed).

    The Tiny Craft Closet/Etsy

    The Tiny Craft Closet is an Arizona-based Etsy shop established in 2014 that specializes in pot holders, kitchenwares, apparel, and gifts.

    Promising review: "I received an air fryer for Christmas and these mini pot holders are perfect! The material is cute and washes well. Very well made!!! Thank you!" —Debbie Grooms

    Get it from The Tiny Craft Closet on Etsy for $6 (available in 50 prints).

    6. A tiny milk frother that makes rich, creamy froths in seconds, making you as powerful as the Starbucks mermaid herself. It also doesn't need to be plugged in, cleans with a quick stream of hot running water, and is teensy for storing. (It comes with its own little display stand, though, if you wanna show it off!)

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "All of my friends and family had this so naturally I had to get one and I am obsessed. Makes every homemade coffee taste like you went out and bought one. Very affordable and worth every penny. I love that is comes with a cute holder for it." —Kayla Dillinger

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in five styles).

    7. A *super* compact eight-in-one spiralizer that also grates cheese, juices fruits, and cuts ribbons, and more. All you have to do is change out one of the interlocking caps for a new function. Freshly squeezed OJ? Zoodles in the air fryer? Grated Parmesan on your pasta? Done, done, and done. (And you never have to say "when"!!)

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed, Amazon

    I recently purchased this because it was my cheapest option for making zoodles, and also because my apartment is the size of a shoebox and there was no room for anything bigger. I LOVE how easy it is to swap out the caps to do other things, too — I've started grating my own cheeses and feel very fancy. But mostly I just love that it's very safe to use (it comes with a finger guard!), super easy to figure out, very compact, and even has measurements on the inside of the cup if you're ever portioning things out for a recipe.

    Promising review: "LOVE THIS. I absolutely love this. So far I've used the thicker spiralizer, two of the grater things, and then the juicer. I love how easy this makes keeping everything together. And it's sharp so it actually cuts through things without you needing to work super hard to do it. The only thing I don't love is that the spiralizers are a bit hard to clean, but I guess that's with all of them? Not sure, this is the first I've owned. But, overall I'd recommend it :)" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    8. A popular microwave pasta cooker to make cooking pasta somehow...even...easier? Truly all you have to do is put water and dry noodles in it, hit the microwave buttons, and strain it right out of the container. Noodles on noodles, y'all.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I don't want to get all gushy over a pasta maker, but man...I really love this gizmo! I try to limit my monthly food expenditures and the Fasta Pasta helps me work in at least one inexpensive pasta meal every week. If not more. First of all, I like spaghetti — either with normal Prego-type sauce or sometimes just with butter and Romano cheese sprinkled on. But I'm lazy and impatient and don't like things that take a long time to make, with a bunch of steps, and a big clean up afterwards. The Fasta Pasta is perfect for me. I get the exact amount of correctly-measured spaghetti; it's faster than boiling water in a big pot then having to watch and stir the pasta; the pasta comes out perfectly cooked every time; and the cleanup is a snap. No big pot; no colander; no spaghetti fork to lift out the pasta. Just the easy to clean Fasta Pasta, and a pot to heat up the sauce. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!" —Smilin Sam

    Get it from Amazon for $16.98.

    9. A Baby Yoda dishwasher magnet so cute that washing the dishes will be your new favorite chore. This lil' bub is reversible, so you'll always know whether the dishes in the dishwasher are "clean" or "dirty" and avoid any dirty dish-related mishaps.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Who doesn't love Baby Yoda? I was tired of my husband saying he didn't know if they were clean or not and with us being Star Wars fans I had to go with this design — it's just adorable!" —Melsa

    Get it from Amazon for $9.43.

    10. A slim cutlery drawer organizer for anyone who is looking to make the most of their drawer space *and* make it that much easier to put their cutlery away.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This was a quarantine impulse buy for me: I suddenly want everything in my home perfectly organized. This was great — the top row fits my set of steak knives and the bottom row holds miscellaneous knives for chopping." —MKB from CT

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

    11. A sparkling-wine saver with a built-in pressure pump that will keep your bubblies bubbling, so you can pop your prosecco any day of the week and know you won't have to waste one single drop.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    I purchased one of these at the aggressive behest of a friend, and it's LEGIT. I told myself I was a Red Wine Lady my whole life because it was easier to save for later, but now that I don't live in constant fear of wasting the bubbly stuff, I am an All Wine Lady and have finally achieved my truest form.

    Promising review: "Love love love. I am so happy I bought this, it’s super easy to use and now I don’t have to drink an entire bottle of champagne in a sitting since it doesn’t go flat :). if you are a big champs drinker like I am, then you’ll want to go ahead and buy this." —cassandra

    Check out BuzzFeed's review of the wine saver here!

    Get it from Amazon for $10.97.

    12. A set of three dough presses designed to easily cut and press dough in uniform sizes, whether it's for hand pies, dumplings, ravioli, calzones, empanadas, or truly any delicious thing you can think of that you want tucked into a pillow of warm carbs.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This was a great purchase for the price. I was making empanadas and folding them by hand, which didn’t look too good. This set helps me cut them easily into circles and then easily presses them closed. Consistent look each time! I like that there are three sizes in the set so I can make them according to my mood. Easy to wash and use. Would highly recommend for the price and functionality!" —Sox

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $6.51.

    13. A 3D-printed appliance cord organizer you can discretely attach to the backs of your larger kitchen appliances to keep the cords from becoming a veritable jungle on your already limited counter space.

    3D Home Solutions/Etsy

    3D Home Solutions is a Texas-based Etsy shop that specializes in 3D-printed homewares. Each cord organizer comes with a medium-sized Command strip for easy installation and removal.

    Promising review: "Received this super fast! And it works amazing!!! I don’t have to worry about my cord to my mixer just bunched up or wrapped around the base. Went on super easy, very durable from what I can tell. And the cord easily clips into place. I love how much this is helping me save space! Thank you again!!" —Cat Cisneros

    Get it from 3D Home Solutions on Etsy for $10 (available in three colors).

    14. A produce saver storage container designed with special vents to keep your fruits and veggies fresh longer, so you can take your sweet time going through this week's grocery haul without panic-throwing all your produce into dishes where they don't belong.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "LOVE LOVE LOVE these! We buy only organic produce which does not tend to last very long and when you pay as much as we do for organic you don't want it going bad so fast. My favorite thing about these is that it keeps my lettuce crisp and fresh for weeks not days. I've been able to buy bunches of lettuce and keep them in the fridge for several weeks. I keep the second container for strawberries, asparagus, blueberries, etc. and it keeps them fresh for way longer now. Not only that but it prevents them from molding after only a few days so I'm not worried about having to eat my strawberries in two days now. Will definitely be buying more in the future. Totally worth every penny and super easy to wash and dry." —Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $10.69 (available in multiple sizes and sets).

    15. A trio lasagna pan designed so all of your edges are so perfectly crisped it will taste like Remy from Ratatouille cut them with his own discerning, bougie eyes.

    amazon.com

    FYI, you can 6,000% use these for brownies, blondies, and bread too. This is also great for making several kinds of lasagna at once, if you and other fam members have different preferences!

    Promising review: "There's nothing but good coming from this pan! Yummy crunchy edges on every piece! I made three different kinds of lasagna in this pan and all I can say is that there were already plans for the next batch before this one was gone! This pan is heavy duty, has an awesome nonstick coating, and will definitely stand up to much use. The recipe called for spraying the pan with nonstick spray but it was completely unnecessary. Have already suggested this pan to others." —srenee

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    16. A powerful set of fridge magnets so you can reclaim all that empty space on the to of your shelves in the name of Bud Light/cherry soda/Smirnoff Ice (this is a mostly judgment-free zone!!).

    amazon.com, kickstarter.com

    Promising review: "Of all the things I have bought that I didn't need, this is one of my favorites. Beer is hard to get out of the cardboard carrier in the top of my fridge. While just taking them out and sitting them on the shelf would have solved this problem as well. This solution is more fun. They float and technically it does make a tiny bit of extra space under the beer for small things like cheese or something." —AbbyValentine

    Get a set of two strips (six magnets) from Amazon for $29.99.

    17. A foaming garbage disposal cleaner you can plop into your sink, run a little water on, and let its blue magic fizz its way up to the top while clearing out all the gunk and gross smells from your culinary adventures in one go.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff really cleans my sink and disposal of the foul odor that sometimes develops. I've tried everything to get rid of the smell from the garbage disposal: Vinegar, bleach, ice, various other products, baking soda, baking soda with vinegar, boiling water...nothing seemed to get rid of the smell for long, but this stuff does. I like it so much that I ordered it online because I couldn't find it again at the grocery store." —Carol L. Hill

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $4.10.

    18. A set of nonstick, reusable toaster oven bags that will let you make grilled cheese, paninis, and toasted sammies right in the toaster instead of firing up the stove and dirtying up an entire pan.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    (Psst — you can also use these to reheat french fries, pizza, and even mini tacos, and get all that glorious heat without them getting all soggy from the microwave. Leftovers just got lit.)

    Promising review: "I had no idea how well these would work. You can put toast or rolls or anything that will fit in the slot — even if it has jelly or spread or anything on it — in the bag in the toaster and it doesn't hurt the toaster, and the food comes out warm." —mare36

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $7.99, or a ten-pack for $12.99.

    19. A penguin fridge deodorizer designed to maximize the impact of your baking soda with special vents (and just truly absurd cuteness) so you don't have to swap out a whole baking soda every other month just to keep your fridge from stinking up.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was a little worried the quantity of baking soda would be insufficient to absorb odors; I was wrong, as it works GREAT! For us, no problem with spilling or leaking. If you knock it over, it might spill out a little. But as all guides on how to stock a fridge point out, you are supposed to leave space for air to circulate. I placed it in a back corner and it absorbs odors VERY well for me — fresh fish, etc. Maybe a garlic marinade would be a bit much, but that's only in there overnight, and shortly after removing the marinade the penguin does its thing! No more wasted money buying boxes of baking soda that occupy much more room in the fridge. Those disposable plastic baking soda discs that you suction cup stick on the inside wall, in my opinion hold much less baking soda than this penguin, so this lasts longer. And emptying/refilling is easy. I would definitely buy again. I would suggest someone with tipping-over problems (kids or RV users?) stick a bit of Velcro on the bottom and that should keep it in place and still allow you to easily remove it for eventual refilling." —T. Dalton

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95.

    20. A magnetic hanging utensil set that includes (*DEEP BREATH*) a slotted spatula, spaghetti server, slotted spoon, solid spoon, and a ladle, all designed to nest into each other so you'll have them at the tip of your fingers whenever you get ambitious in the kitchen.

    The utensils sitting upright and stacked in their holder in shades of blue and green
    Amazon

    Someone gifted me one of these many moons ago, and the utensils have held up for over four years! They're still as perfectly magnetized and functional as they were when they first arrived, and I barely ever notice them even though my counter space is approximately that of a lunch tray (wish I were kidding!!!).

    Promising review: "We travel full-time and move every three months so everything has to be compact and packable. These replaced five other kitchen utensils that did not nest in each other. They sit on the counter ready to use. They are sturdy and have been used in nonstick ceramic and cast-iron pans. Very happy with this set." —Justice Talbot

    Get a set from Amazon for $28 (available in three other color varieties).

    21. A pair of air-tight cereal dispensers for anyone whose work-from-home routine is "answer emails, handful of Cheerios, Zoom meeting, handful of Goldfish, rinse, repeat."

    amazon.com

    Psst — a lot of people use this to safely store pet food, too!

    Promising review: "We have three kids and a very small kitchen with very little cabinet/counter space!!! We used to keep our cereal boxes on top of our refrigerator, but I've been trying to de-clutter, and also come up with a solution for our kids to be able to get their own cereal in the mornings. THIS IS IT!!!! It looks great on our counter and we have very little space, so it fits just right! This has been the perfect solution to giving our kids the independence they need to get their own breakfast! It has been a lifesaver!!! Love it!!!" —tenle

    Get it from Amazon for $27.08 (available in four colors and also as a single dispenser).

    22. A snap-on pasta strainer to free your pasta from its hot juices straight from the pot, and spare you storage space boot (is it just me or are colanders always in the business of being exactly in the way of whatever it is you need?). Psst — these are also a game-changer for washing your fruit, too!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've owned this for about six months, and I couldn't imagine cooking without it. I hate strainers. They are bulky and fill up the dishwasher, I'm lazy, whatever. This strainer is a lifesaver. Clip it on your pan, strain, and voila! And it is so easy to clean. A little hot water and it's good to go for the next round. I highly recommend this gadget, it will retire your current strainer." —Viola Evens

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in four colors).

    23. A sneaky little K-Cup storage drawer to neatly hide all your coffee pods and accoutrements, and also give your Keurig a little kitchen throne to put all the other appliances in their place.

    amazon.com

    Each of these holds up to 36 standard-sized K-cups.

    Promising review: "I am so glad I got this. It makes for such great streamlined storage. Keeps things tidy and neat, and also helps me keep track of how many cups I have left to determine whether or not I need to add to my grocery list. It is very sturdy and I fit my machine on top. The top is very durable, hard plastic and does not buckle with the weight of the machine filled with water on top." —tunisianswife

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in nine styles).

    24. A rapid egg cooker that I am warning you right now is going to become your only personality trait. It can make soft, medium, *and* hard-boiled eggs in addition to poaching, scrambling, and making omelettes out of them. This gizmo is like, a thousand potential brunches and meal preps in one.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    I've owned one of these babies and have faithfully used it every week for upward of two years, and especially love it during quarantine — it simplifies breakfast because I know no matter what weird assortment of groceries I'm working with, there are precooked eggs to add some protein to it (I like mine medium-boiled 🍳). If my dinner is boring or seems like it needs a little extra "oomph" to it, I'll throw in an egg from this too. Some reviews note that the alarm on it is a little loud, but the new models have significantly decreased the volume and sing a little song instead!

    Promising review: "You know those objects that are totally unnecessary, but you see them and fall in love and live forever in happiness with your random kitschy thing? This is that thing. I saw this egg cooker on a BuzzFeed list and, even though I am a fully functioning adult who has never had trouble cooking eggs before in my life, I knew I had to have it. I have not been disappointed. It makes especially lovely, perfectly round omelets with minimal cleanup required. Hard and soft boiled eggs cook evenly and taste great. The poached eggs are tender and melt in your mouth over toast." —Sonnet A. Fitzgerald

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

    25. A pair of shredder claws to carve all your meats up faster than Wolverine can blink, sparing you and your measly fork from getting in a lengthy tug-of-war.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My pork shoulder always tastes good, but I'm too lazy to pull or chop it properly. These claws really made short, pretty easy work of that job. I used them just as described: I put the meat on and took it off, cut off a portion, dug in, and started pulling. You can make your pieces as big or small as you like. Much easier than with a fork or knife. They just work. I think, after writing this, I'm going to go put a shoulder on right now." —Edwin C. Kebschull

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    26. A set of stackable fridge drawers so you never reach in for a seltzer and have three bags of shredded cheese and an apple fall out on you again. The transparency of these is also great because it reminds you to eat your fruits + veggies before they go bad!

    reviewer's fridge with food organized in each shelf
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Excellent organization system! I once opened the fridge often, always looking for something I hadn't seen the last time I checked. The thing is — I often found something new because it just wasn't organized in a functional way. Now, with this system, I find what I'm looking for the first time. And when a bin is empty, I know I need to buy more of that product and just ask my smart home to add that item to my shopping list. Very grateful for the sense of calm and control that this fridge organization system has given me, and for all of the food that is no longer going bad in the back of the fridge!" —Chelsea T.

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $30.

    27. Plus a set of fully customizable waterproof stickers designed for fridge use, so you can neatly organize all your fridge's contents (and gently remind anyone who might look to *disrupt* that fragile order that the cheese does have its own rightful drawer, DEAREST).

    KW Printables/Etsy

    KW Printables is a Florida-based, woman-owned Etsy shop established in 2018 that specializes in customizable vinyl decals, planning printables, and gifts.

    Promising review: "Lovely shop owner, extremely prompt with answering all my questions. Very helpful to ensure I got the correct sizes for my labels. Fast turn around time and speedy shipping! I decided on grey labels and love that they almost blend in and aren’t so bold!!! Love having my fridge labeled!" —Krysta Buchholz

    Get it from KW Printables on Etsy for $2.50 per label (available in multiple colors and sizes).

    28. A three-in-one avocado slicer small enough to slide into your utensil drawer – it'll more than earn its keep by taking care of those pesky pits and giving you slices so perfectly portioned you'll break your friends' Instagram feeds.

    Amazon

    This three-in-one tool can split an avocado with its pointy tip, remove the pit with its center, and make perfectly even slices with the bottom — a much safer alternative to using a regular knife and potential falling prey to the dreaded "avocado hand."

    Promising review: "So worth the space in the kitchen! This thing really does what it says. I love mine and use it all the time. Pit removal is super easy with this, no more knife-prying. I didn't think the cutting tool would be as effective as it is- but it works great as well. No complaints on this product — would buy again!" —K. Cyr

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    29. A four-tier slim wheeled kitchen organizer for my personal favorite kind of storage: the ~sneaky~ kind. This easily navigates tight spaces and gives you some extra room to store go-tos like condiments, ingredients for whatever baking project you're working on, or cans and bottles of water.

    Amazon

    Psst — lots of reviewers use this for their bathrooms and laundry spaces, too!

    Promising review: "This is pretty fantastic. I had the exact amount of space needed to put this little pantry between my refrigerator and cabinets. It was easy to install and holds quite a lot of stuff. I put about 24 bottles of water and juice and some cereal and I still had space. Highly recommend it for small spaces." —SIMARA

    Get it from Amazon for $21.42 (also available in three tiers).

    30. An automatic pan stirrer so you don't have to spend the full half hour before every meal babysitting the stove. For dishes on a low simmer, you can set the timer on this and go back to watching Netflix the way nature intended.

    Promising review: "Honestly I laughed at myself for buying this. I stopped laughing the first time I used it! What a help! It freed me up to do other things while it stirred the sauce that needed constant attention. Bought another one! Not laughing now!" —Luvdvm

    Get it from UncommonGoods for $25.

    31. A flip-top lid for your wineglass perfect for anyone who likes to cook with the window open or take their meals outside on the deck — all you do is secure it to the base and the rim of your glass and then you can flip it on and off at your leisure. 100% fewer bugs in your diet, guaranteed.

    Get it from Flip2sip on Etsy for $5.99 (available in six colors; this shop offers ✨free shipping✨).

    32. A bread warming blanket that heats up in a mere minute so you can enjoy the majesty of fresh! warm! bread!!! for the entirety of your dinner. Psst — you can also try this on loaves that have long since come out of the oven (without doing things that might affect the texture, like using a microwave or oven).

    33. A lazy Susan turntable for your pantry or fridge that will make storing and perusing your condiment stash so much more painless, since you can access the sriracha without ketchup, mustard, and a half-eaten tub of frosting landing on your unsuspecting toe.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Our fridge is extremely deep and we’re constantly 'losing' or forgetting what items we have in the back, but not anymore! The nonstick pad works great to keep heavy or large items from falling off, and with a touch of a finger, you can completely spin around. I’m so happy with this product, I’ll be purchasing more for other areas of my house:-)" —Moorefoto17

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (available in two colors).

    34. A breakfast sandwich maker that may be small in size, but can simultaneously cook an egg, toast bread, warm precooked meat, and melt cheese into the perfect sammie in less than five human minutes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Y’all, after reading the reviews I was super excited about getting this product. My family have used this product for a few months now and we LOVE it! Calling all lazy people, breakfast lovers, and busy people out there! You can have a sandwich in four minutes. Four minutes! It’s super easy to use. Plug it in, wait for green light to turn on. Spray top and bottom compartments with oil spray. Open up lower compartment and put bottom of English muffin, cheese, and precooked meat, close. Open top compartment, crack egg and put top of English muffin. Set timer for four minutes. Once four minutes is up, slide the slider part over so that the top part of the sandwich meets the bottom part. Take out sandwich using a spatula. Enjoy! It’s that easy.I would recommend this product to anyone. It is also small so it doesn’t take up that much space. The only thing to be careful with is that it can get really hot so use an oven mitt or something when handling the product. Easy cleanup. After the product is cooled down, I spray it with white vinegar and wipe it off with a paper towel or rag." —AndyOSU

    35. A chic freezer storage chart you can frame both as decor *and* a handy way to save yourself from frozen cheesecake-related food poisoning (not that it would stop me, but you do you).

    Promising review: "I like to grow herbs and use them in salads, soups, and many other recipes. I received these Jenaluca Herb Scissors as a birthday gift, and can't believe how fast and easy it is to cut up cilantro, basil, parsley, lovage, etc. My husband tried them today too for the first time while making guacamole, and found that slicing the cilantro went very quickly. The storage case-cleaner is very efficiently designed too. I ordered four of these sets to give as gifts." —Lucille P. Nawara

    37. An "Angry Mama" microwave cleaner – it uses vinegar and water to blow hot steam into your microwave oven and loosen up all the old food and stains in a mere seven minutes (approximately two Harry Styles songs, if anyone's keeping track).

    Promising review: "This product is so amazing, I'm going to get one for all of my children. I am a teacher, and I let my students use my microwave. Usually it takes me half an hour of scrubbing after 31 students have made popcorn, and heated up lunches. This time I used the product, and I literally spent less than one minute just wiping down the microwave!!! I will now keep one in my classroom, and one at my home. A miracle product that actually does what it says, remarkable!!!" —Desiree Barlow

    38. An electric potato peeler that whoops, just got a permanent spot on your counter. Not only does it effortlessly peel potatoes, but it can handle pretty much any peeled produce you throw at it, from apples to kiwis to oranges to tomatoes. (To be clear, though, your highest priority should *always* be mashed potato-ing.)

    youtube.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love it! It's light and easy to use. When I use a potato peeler I was always peeling too much potato with the peel. This blade is fine and only gets the skin, in seconds. Except for the 'poles' of the potato but I don't mind. It's easy to clean if you have a sprayer to just rinse off the spikes where you insert your potatoes. Small enough and doesn't take up much room." —yestfl

    39. A personal blender that saves you an extra step by blending it in a portable cup you can drink it from, aka a lazy berry lover's dream come true.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This blender works very well for my needs. It effortlessly blends frozen banana, frozen berries, spinach and even kale. This actually works better than a magic bullet I've used in the past." —Lyndsey Teree

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

    40. A customizable wine-and-cheese board with its own lil' wine storage caddy so you can navigate from the kitchen to the living room with ease as you're waiting for the main course to finish cooking.

    41. A collapsible microwave popcorn maker that doubles as a serving bowl, so you can pop movie theater-level corn while only using up a Frisbee's worth of valuable space. All you have to do is add generic kernels + whatever oils or butters you feel in your heart, and you'll be raring to go.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a fast, effective and low-cost means to prepare popcorn. I got tired of paying a premium for microwave popcorn packets at the grocery. I didn’t want another appliance on my counter to air pop either. This was the perfect solution. I use inexpensive bulk popping corn, no oil or salt and I don’t have to worry about the metal in the microwave popcorn bags that gets extremely hot and scorches the upside down paper plate I have to put under the microwave bag each time. Plus, weren’t we told not to put anything metal in the microwave anyway? I pull the Salbree out, expand it and add a 1/4 cup of popping corn kernels in the base to the full line. I put it in the microwave for 3+ minutes and listen for the kernels to stop popping. Using the cool handles I lift it out of the microwave, give it a minute to cool and add just enough butter to give it flavor. Then I eat right out of the same bowl I cooked in. When done I dump out the few kernels that didn’t pop. I wash it out with dish soap and hot water, let it dry and then put it away for next time. Economical, safe, less oil and salt and only one bowl to clean. No new appliance and no metal in the microwave. Pure genius. A great value." —RobG

    42. A prep-and-pour cutting board that lets you cut up your goods and then ~fashoooom~ them straight into a pot or a pan without any extras falling to the floor and immediately getting claimed by a four-legged friend.

    youtube.com, Sur La Table

    Promising Review: "This cutting board is amazing! After chopping your veggies, this board makes transferring them into a pan, pot, or mixing bowl extremely easy and efficient. Just pick up the board using the handle, and the cutting boards transforms into a funnel to effortlessly drop the contents of the cutting board into a pan. It's great and we love it!" —Tiffany J

    43. A HyperChiller that will transform your piping hot coffee into glorious iced coffee in a literal minute — same goes for that rosé you were too lazy to put in the fridge.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Already had one for myself and bought a second for a friend. I'm thinking of buying a third for the office! I have a cold brew set to make concentrate which is nice but takes 24+ hours. Sometimes I forget/run out/am lazy and you can literally brew hot coffee into this thing and have ice cold coffee about two minutes later. From hot brewed to so cold in less than two minutes that the coffee doesn't even melt ice in the glass." —Billy S.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.65.

    44. A pocket-sized wine aerator that'll save you oodles of time on Friday wine-and-cheese night — instead of letting your glass chill out before drinking it, you can toggle this gizmo to one of three modes (red, white, or port) and get the most of your wine's fully-aerated flavor in 45 seconds or less.

    Promising review: "I bought one for myself and really noticed the difference in the taste of wine, especially red wine that had been opened at a previous time. I then decided to give them as gifts to my wine-drinking friends. It's compact and so easy to use. I like the timing device set for white, red, or port wine." —MLV

    45. A see-through toaster, so you can watch your toast get to your *precise* level of preferred toastiness and finally have the kind of breakfast you deserve. TBH, cancel my Netflix account, this is my new TV.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS TOASTER! It makes great toast. I can’t believe that I’ve gotten so excited over a toaster. I haven’t been able to find a durable, reasonably priced toaster that could accommodate long slices or bagels, etc. Additionally, I have had to be gluten-free for the last 10 years and gluten-free bread has to be carefully toasted in order to be good. All the toasters I have ever owned had those fragile, thin wires that heat up and glow to toast the bread. And when they broke, which they inevitably did, the bread toasted unevenly. THIS TOASTER has unique coils in the bottom, so that you would expect unevenly toasted bread. BUT NO! It’s the most perfectly toasted bread I’ve had in 30 years." —Byron Trist

    46. A six-outlet wall charger designed specifically for larger plugs, so you can finally fire up in all your kitchen appliances without playing musical chairs every time you want to use the air fryer and the Keurig at the same time.

    amazon.com

    Psst — this also comes equipped with two USB fast-charging ports *and* a night-light, so you can charge your phone at the counter and get yourself a midnight snack without waking up half the house!

    Promising review: "Excellent design that solved my long-term issue! I have a corner wall outlet where we plug in digital clock, table lamp, computer charger and cell phone chargers. For a long time we have been using an outlet extender strip, which has a thick long line laying on the floor. Even with the multiple outlets the extender provided, we sometimes still need to unplug and re-plug some chargers because they have big head that occupies multiple outlet spaces. Surprisingly, this relatively small device provides large space on the side which can easily fit two big head chargers, USB outlet saves you another charger head space, and the night light function makes it easy for you to see the outlets in dark corners or at night. This product is a perfect space saver for office and entertainment areas for your home. Thumbs up!" —LawSchoolStudent2L

    47. A universal over-cabinet towel bar with a foam backing to protect your cabinets, so you'll always have a hand towel at your fingertips when you inevitably explode red sauce all over your kitchen trying to get that godforsaken lid off the jar. (Why do the things we love hurt us the most??)

    Promising review: "There was really no place in my kitchen to hang dishtowels, except for the oven handles. I got one of these to try on the cabinet door. The brushed finish is sort of neutral, and does not stand out. The first one worked out so well that I ordered another 14-inch and two of the next smaller size, so that I can now hang four dish towels (or dish cloths) without using the oven. I am very happy with these, wish I had gotten them sooner." —Mamachills

    48. A set of glass meal prep containers that are safe in the oven and the microwave, meaning you can cook, reheat, and eat out of 'em without ever bothering to go find a plate. Plus, these lids are tighter than the Pentagon.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Perfect for eco-friendly meal prep. I was looking to use less plastic and more glass in my meal storage which is why I ended up buying this set. The glass is thick and really durable, the lids fit snugly and everything is dishwasher-safe. I feel better knowing I don't have chemicals leaching into my food. Well made product." —HoorayForCoffee
