    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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!)

    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"!!)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!!).

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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."

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    36. A pair of herb scissors with five blades, so you can have fresh garden herbs in all your salads on all your fave dishes with so little effort that you'll be whipping this jagged little baby out three times a day.

    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).

    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.)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
