    3. A small egg beater from OXO to ensure your omelet comes out nice 'n' fluffy but also be your saving grace when you're whipping up an individual dessert or Dalgona coffee and don't want to be bothered with a full-size hand mixer.

    4. A milk frother to pack a powerful, spinning punch despite looking rather delicate. It'll help transform your hot chocolate into one out of a Hallmark Christmas movie scene. Delish.

    5. A handheld garlic press you'll be ready to *rock 'n' roll* with right out of the package — don't plan to invite any vampires over for dinner.
