Copper Chef Egg Maker that takes away the stress of trying to properly boil, fry or poach your eggs in the morning.
Promising review: "Best way to hard-boil eggs! This cooker is the easiest, best way to cook hard-boiled eggs. I never have to worry about forgetting them because it shuts off automatically. And if I let them cool completely before peeling, they peel like a dream. Many family members also bought this and are believers now, too." — lvmygkids
garlic saver to keep your garlic looking and smelling fresh for as long as humanly possible.
This jar features permeation and a lid to promote airflow, which ultimately extends the life of your cloves while being completely disguised in an adorable, countertop jar.
Promising review: "This garlic keeper is very spacious as you can see from the photos. There are three holes at the bottom to allow for air flow to keep the garlic fresh. The container has a beautiful flower design on it to compliment any kitchen decor. It is light blue in color. It is made of ceramic, so hand wash it so as to not chip the paint. It says 'fresh garlic' so you know what container it is. I love how it blends into the kitchen but is also practical in use. I would highly recommend to anyone needing a way to keep garlic fresh for longer to get this product." — Jasper111
Instant Pot pressure cooker that makes all of your go-to dishes as easy as a push-of-a-button.
Promising review: "The Instant Pot is AMAZING!!!! I have always had a basic slow cooker and when I received this at first I was overwhelmed not knowing how it worked or what to do with each function but it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. We made our first meal in the instant pot the other day which was ribs and what would normally take 4-6 hours in a slow cooker took only 35 minutes using the meats/stew button on the instant pot and the ribs fell off the bone! I couldn't believe I could have dinner done that quickly! Greatest cooking appliance I have ever had so far." — Brazilchick32
tea bag organizer so you can actually see all the flavors you've accumulated over the past few months, and stop drinking the same one just because it's the first box you lay eyes on when you open your overstuffed cupboard.
Promising review: "It makes my tea bags and accessories soo easily available. It's also great because I have a couple different teas that look just like each other. Now I can tell which one I am getting. I just have to decide if I want it on a shelf or on the wall." — Tamra

nonstick wok from the BuzzFeed Tasty collection that features a silicone helping handle and is just as easy to clean as it is to use.
Promising review: "This is a beautiful wok! The turquoise color is gorgeous! It is a lot larger than it appeared to me, and I love that. You can fit a lot of stir-fry into this Wok. Even though it is larger in size, it's not as heavy as it would appear to be. Looking forward to some stir-fry chicken, and also plan on getting a stir-fry recipe book just for this Wok. I'm very pleased with this product and would recommend it to anyone." — Debbie

Affresh Disposal Cleaner to keep your garbage disposal free of debris so your kitchen sink won't smell like rotten food anymore.
These easy-to-use tablets remove odor-causing residues with a powerful scrubbing-action foam.
Promising review: "I have bought many boxes of these, they work so well. The way I get the best use out of them is to simply turn the water pressure to almost droplets, you want to maintain a constant stream but just enough to keep it flowing, the less water it will foam more and clean more, the more water, the faster it will flush it down the drain!" — Donald

Just push the top button to extend the probe out and use the on off button to power it up. It takes one AAA battery. It's very lightweight and folds up nicely and fits in my drawer very well. I didn't have any trouble figuring out how to use it the very first time. It worked great for me when I was making yogurt. You can also switch it from Celsius to Fahrenheit very easily." — Lsp0604
A bottle of
Bar Keepers Friend to keep your knives, porcelain sinks, and greasy pans in tiptop condition.
Promising review: "I had old yellowed stains on my porcelain kitchen sink that I assumed would be there for good. Sprinkled Bar Keepers and let sit for about five minutes. So I scrubbed with regular pressure and all stains came off to my delight. Porcelain is now all white. Not bad for a really old sink (decades old)." — cristina

ProMist microfiber spray mop designed to kill 99.99% of bacteria and uses an eco-friendly, machine-washable microfiber pad.
Promising review: "The O cedar Pro Mist Max spray mop is my favorite by far. First off the cleaning head is at 15-1/2 inches wide and approximately 6 inches deep, so it cleans a much larger area in just one pass than the others that I have used. The head flips over so you can use both sides of the pad and the best of all is you use your own household cleaner diluted with water so there is no special solution or pads to purchase later. Machine-washable pad really does grab and hold grime and dirt very well and is very absorbent. Fast and easy to use. Great product." — GoodCop
