    There's even an onion chopper in here that'll prevent you from crying your eyes out in the kitchen.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors.

    1. A culinary blowtorch so you can *finally* make your own baked Alaska after watching various chefs do it on TV for years.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This mini torch is easy to use with an adjustable flame. It's not too fancy-shmancy, but it's not expensive either. It does everything I need it to do including lighting candles that have burned too far down to reach with a match (although I know that's not its intent at all). Unfortunately it doesn't arrive with butane; but once you fill it, it lasts a pretty long time!" —Vero

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    2. A playful egg separator you'll definitely be *egg-cited* to test out — a must-have for any home bakers or fans of egg-white omelettes.

    Promising review: "This is by far the best kitchen gadget I've ever owned. It actually makes me want to be in the kitchen (which is not my favorite place). It works exactly as described, is easy to clean, and is cute to boot. Just don't be tempted to stick this fish to yourself. I've had to explain to all my coworkers how I ended up with fish hickeys." —Siber

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three styles).

    3. A compact eight-in-one spiralizer you can use to grate cheese, juice fruits, cut ribbon, and *so* much more. This lil' gadget really does it all.

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed, Amazon

    BuzzFeed editor *and* zoodle-lover Emma Lord is obsessed with this gadget:

    "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.

    4. Shredder claws so you won't have to suffer from burnt fingertips while trying to finally get a smidge closer to flawlessly replicating your grandma's famous pulled-pork recipe.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Works well for shredding larger portions of meat, like pork. Plastic appears to be of higher quality. Sufficient room in the opening for most finger and hand sizes. The pointed tips shouldn't cause injury unless you're careless. I'd highly recommend the use of quality protective gloves; you're not only dealing with the mess of shredding itself but also, most likely, some elevated-temperature food." —Legardi11

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95+ (available in four colors).

    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.

    the rolling handheld garlic press
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I had a two-hinge garlic press, which worked well but the garlic often got stuck and it was not easy to clean. I am pleasantly surprised by how this garlic crusher has such a simple design, yet it is so effective. As you press the garlic, the minced garlic will be collected on top of the grater and you can easily scape it off with the little knife that came with the kit. I also love the silicone peeler! It makes peeling garlic skin a lot easier. With these tools, my hands longer stink from cropping garlic!" —CL

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    6. A cookie scoop, so all of your precious balls of dough will come out *exactly* the same size and look simply stunning before everyone in the house gobbles 'em up.

    a reviewer photo of cookie dough balls neatly arranged and the same size behind the cookie scoop
    amazon.com

    I have one of these and it has been a game changer when making cookies. I love that each one comes out the same size, making it easier than ever to know precisely how many will fit on my baking sheet.

    Promising review: "Why didn't I have one of these in my kitchen drawer before?! I bought the medium-sized scoop originally to make a large batch of cookies for Christmas, but today it came in handy when I had leftover batter from my banana bread recipe and it made the perfect scoop to fill a regular-sized cupcake liner! Now I'm thinking about getting the small size for my mini cupcakes! Super easy and they came out perfectly uniform and totally beats trying to use a spoon! Handles have a nice silicone grip, too, and help with hand fatigue. :-)" —Michi K

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes S–L).

    7. An herb stripper, to help you utilize all the pieces you actually like to eat from your favorite herbs without having to painstakingly remove all the bitter stems. Yuck.

    MudPotteryAndGlass is a small business based in Mendocino, California, that specializes in unique glass and ceramic gifts.

    Promising review: "Thank you for the herb stripper. I used it to make my mother's recipe for parsley potatoes and it worked wonderfully. I will order again!" —Cynthia Huddleston

    Get it from MudPotteryAndGlass on Etsy for $18 (available in nine colors).

    8. An immersion blender you can count on to make recreating your favorite Panera soup a breeze — broccoli cheddar in a bread bowl here we come! It'll also help you make delightfully smooth sauces like a true cooking pro.

    Amazon

    BuzzFeed editor Kayla Boyd recently purchased this and can't wait to give it a whirl! I have a similar one and use it to remove any unwanted lumps and bumps from sauces and soups, but also to make dalgona coffee!

    Promising review: "Amazing blender! I've had other (cheap) models of immersion blenders. While they did what they were supposed to do, they did not have quality that this Mueller one has. I absolutely ADORE that the piece that does the work is all stainless, not cheap plastic. I use mine mostly for doing soups, and it does a wonderful job even on 'tough' kohlrabi. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a GOOD immersion blender!" —Judy D.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97.

    9. A chopping tool that'll break up ground meat while it's already in the pan to ensure it's evenly distributed for perfect cooking. You can also use it on veggies and tofu, so don't be discouraged if you're not a big meat eater!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product is the bee's knees! Best-ever product to chop ground hamburger, sausage, etc.! Makes taco meat, spaghetti meat sauce, and sausage soooo easy to 'chop' while cooking to have a small and uniform texture! Must have! Just hate we didn’t have these 30 years ago! Lol! Have purchased both styles for myself and and several for family members. Very sturdy, heatproof, and dishwasher safe! Wellllll worth the price!" —Darla Farmer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in seven colors).

    10. A cast-iron grill press to help you create restaurant-worthy paninis and burgers you'll salivate over every time.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "All the years I have been grilling I have said I gotta get one of those. Well, in the age of COVID I no longer put off those experiences. This is not high-tech, no bells, no whistles, it doesn't even connect to the internet. Just a piece of iron with a handle. But it works so well. Soon as it arrived I shoveled the snow off the grill, fired it up, and cooked a nice 2-inch-thick piece of steak. Beautiful grill lines on one side and beautiful hatch pattern on the other. And it tasted great. Tomorrow burgers!" —SeekerGeorge

    Get it from Amazon for $21.37.

    11. An Always Pan, complete with a nonstick surface, vented top, mesh basket for steaming, and high-quality spoon that hooks onto the handle — you'll basically only ever want to use this pan. My apologies to your current ones.

    Our Place, Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed editor Bek O'Connell loves her Our Place pan:

    "I have and love this pan! It just feels really nice to hold. The nesting spoon is absolutely genius, everything cooks evenly, and food just glides right off with minimal effort. If you hate scrubbing, consider getting this! Also, Our Place was founded by Shiza Shahid, along with Amir Tehrani and Zach Rosner. She's a Pakistani social entrepreneur who also co-founded the nonprofit Malala Fund, which promotes education for young girls."

    Get it from Our Place for $145 (available in nine colors).

    12. A kitchen gadget you can use to dice onions in a flash — save your uncontrollable crying for the next time you watch The Notebook.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had another chopper that worked perfectly fine, but when I saw OXO had come out with one, I ordered it. As expected, I liked it much better than the first, which I gave to a friend. I particularly like that it is deeper and not as long, so stuff doesn't pile up under the chopping surface, and the best feature is that it has a hole in one end so you can simply dump it over a bowl when it's full. The little plastic grid is a nuisance, though, so I just don't use it. As long as you rinse it immediately, food doesn't usually stick too badly. OXO has the best designed products in my kitchen. I wish they'd design a self cooking and self cleaning stovetop." —Springlering

    Get it from Amazon for $19.86.

    13. A tortilla press that'll help you take your Taco Tuesdays to the next level without going above and beyond your minimal cooking skill level.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    Thanks to this handy lil' tortilla press from Verve Culture, making tortillas at home wasn't much of a challenge at all. The press is made in Mexico from old Singer sewing machines and other recycled irons! The cast-iron should last you, basically, forever so it's definitely worth your money. I still can't believe how easy they were to make! We used Maseca's corn flour (the bag has instructions on the back how to make the tortillas) and it was so simple. They came out *so* well I was beyond impressed with myself.

    Check out my full review of this awesome tortilla press!

    Get it from Verve Culture or Amazon for $48.

    14. A rapid egg cooker to assist you in making eggs so beautifully they'd make Alton Brown cry tears of joy.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    One little machine that can whip up hard-boiled eggs, poached eggs, scrambled eggs, and omelets? Sounds magical! And let me tell you — it is. Get one of these egg-cellent appliances ASAP.

    Promising review: "If you are on the fence about getting one of these, GET ONE. It really is as easy as it sounds to have a perfectly cooked egg, no guesswork. Just have an ice bath ready next to the cooker and let the eggs sit for a minute or two in there...peels come right off :) Makes healthy eating a breeze in the morning! Where has this been all my life!??!?" —rebecca

    15. An AeroGarden for your countertop so you can grow your own herbs to take your recipes to the next level — whether you have a green thumb or not.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend's sister-in-law who lamented not having a green thumb. In the two months that the sis-in-law has had the AeroGarden, the growth has been tremendous. I'm constantly in awe when she sends me pics of the new growth." —Mary A. Walls

    Get it from Amazon for $89+ (available in three styles).

    16. A pasta machine that'll help you create the Sunday Funday of your carb-loving dreams.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Okay, this is the first review I’ve ever written because I just enjoyed this product so much! It’s exactly as described in my opinion, really great for the price. Bought it for my boyfriend who has wanted one forever, it arrived the next day, we made fettuccine that night and it came out great! Highly recommended for those looking for a pasta maker who don’t want to spend a fortune on brand name." —Holly B.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in two styles).

    17. A mandolin with 30 different cut options you can use to create one of those Pinterest-worthy vegetable platters shaped like a flower or a rainbow — so fun!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "This item is amazing for both its safety features and ease of use. I am a bit of a kitchen klutz and feel completely at ease and fearless with this device. I made my own potato chips — I sliced with my Dash mandolin and cooked in my Dash air fryer. The tasted just like the ones i get from my favorite Portuguese restaurant but I’m hoping they are much healthier. I honestly think this is a must have for all at home chefs." —Dawn

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95 (available in seven colors).

    18. A Breville Smart Scoop Ice Cream Compressor that'll seem like a pricey purchase at first but then feel priceless after you successfully make your first batch of homemade ice cream.

    a stainless steel high-end ice cream machine
    Sur La Table

    Promising review: "We read an article in Sunset Magazine about The Best Ice Cream Makers, and they rated this as the BEST! We decided to splurge and couldn't be happier! We made a few of the recipes that came with it and all were good, however we have since gone VEGAN! We now make THE BEST Vegan Ice Cream with coconut milk or almond milk! It's so nice not having to deal with ice and salt like our old machine, or with having to remember to pre-freeze something that never really works! With this machine, you can decide you want yummy ice cream in an hour or so, put the ingredients in, push the button and wait for the 'Ice Cream Man' song to play and ENJOY! We highly recommend this product!" —Kimberli

    Get it from Sur la Table for $499.95 (originally $749.95).

    19. A KitchenAid food chopper to spare you the hassle of trying to finely chop ingredients *and* make sure all of your sauces and soups will be lump-free.

    Promising review: "This is a perfect size for a small counter. It stores both blades and the cord wraps nicely. It is large enough to chop a large onion. It has a variable speed which is great for controlling particle size. It seems well made , very little vibration and is very attractive." —D Powell

    Get it from Amazon for $54.99+ (available in six styles).

    20. A reversible cast-iron grill and griddle pan that'll support you whether you find yourself wanting a fancy steak dinner or a stack of fluffy pancakes.

    Sur La Table

    Promising review: "I've had this griddle for a couple weeks now and have been very pleased with it. I've used it to make pancakes stove-top, steaks on the gas grill, as well as eggs and potato hash. With just a light rub of oil prior to cooking I haven't had any problems with food sticking, it performs beautifully. It is a hefty piece of cookware though and one should use care moving it around to avoid personal injury or damage to things like glass stove tops. Be patient getting it up to temp, all the cast-iron soaks up a lot of heat before it's ready to go." —Brian L

    Get it from Sur la Table for $69.95

    21. A Levo II that'll help you create an entire slew of ingredients to cook with. From infused butter and honey to salad dressings and oils, you won't know where to begin!

    All you have to do is fill the herb pod, set your dry or activation cycle, add oil or butter, set your infuse cycle, dispense, and enjoy! This item ships 7–10 weeks from when you order it.

    Promising review: "Although it was a little over a month wait for my Levo II to come in, it has been one of the best kitchen appliances I have ever purchased. Speedy infusions and tasty creations. I will always brag on how much I love my Levo and continue to recommend it to my friends and family members for years to come ❤️ Thank you Levo!" —Peyton M.

    a tube-like gadget with three prongs at the bottom that sit inside a pan and stir for you
    UncommonGoods

    Promising review: "My husband loves to cook. We have two very small children, so while his meals are mostly yummy, they are also sometimes burnt. :) This was perfect for him. He's able to turn it on, run into the next room to save the day with a plastic bag and a washcloth for whatever blowout-esque mess I'm dealing with, forget he's cooking, run back into the kitchen frantically when he remembers, and arrive only to find the meal practically cooking itself. Best. Gift. Ever." —Jake the ChefturnedDaddy

    Get it from UncommonGoods for $25.

    23. A carbon steel wok, because the regular ol' frying pans you have simply won't cut it when you want to make an outrageously delicious stir fry.

    Food52

    I have this wok and it's fantastic! My husband is the main chef in our house and he was super excited to try this pan out — it did not disappoint. We made stir fry vegetables and chicken in it. It was so much easier to combine everything into one deep pan and we served the meal directly out of it. Honestly, the GIF (as seen above) from the site has inspired me to make pasta in it next!

    Promising review: "I love this carbon steel wok! Not only did it arrive perfectly pre-seasoned, it cooks food evenly and deliciously! I really love it and I am so glad I decided to get one." —Jade D.

    Get it from Food52 for $129.

    24. A grape, strawberry, and tomato cutter so you can flawlessly slice 'em in half the way chef's do on all of those fancy cooking shows.

    You can also use this to safely cut bagels and slices of meats that you're trying to cut through the middle of!

    Promising review: "This item is the best kitchen helper. First time using it I was apprehensive about it really working, but it works like a charm. Put my tomatoes in first literally slicing them immediately, then my green olives...perfect. I know I will be making more salads and healthy veggie trays with this food cutter." —Cynthia

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    25. A bread maker you'll wonder why you waited so long to buy after realizing how absolutely incredible it is to have the scent of freshly baked bread wafting through your kitchen. Is anyone else drooling?

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This machine comes with settings to let you make bread gluten-free, decide what kind of crust you want, and add little mix-ins like fruit and nuts by reminding you partway through the bread-making process to add them. The inside is also dishwasher-safe, so there's less cleanup and more bread consumption.

    Promising review: "My husband and I cannot stop baking. This arrived over a week ago and we have made two loaves or dough or jam daily! I can't speak for its longevity (I hope it's excellent, it seems sturdy!) but this puppy can crank out some delicious household staples. Pizza dough, fresh bread, *French* bread, bread with fruit or nuts, CAKE, and yes even JAM!! Amazing! It can tackle anything. Cleanup is ridiculously easy, just don't scratch the nonstick surface! The recipes need some tweaking to calibrate with your specific machine (I found that most needed more moisture), but some of the mistakes are still tasty! I was skeptical of the jam-making feature and ended up being extremely impressed." —Ether

    Get it from Amazon for $74.99.

    26. A bottle of Truff truffle-infused hot sauce you'll probably want to start planning your meals around — it's THAT good.

    BuzzFeed / Hannah Loewentheil

    Promising review: "If you are new to hot sauce in general, or looking for a safe thing to try or gift to an enthusiast in your life, give the original bottle a try. If you handle heat well and are looking to venture into flavor country, the Red Bottle is life changing. Truff is an experience that all hot sauce enthusiasts to try at least once." —Spacemonkey

    Get Truff from Amazon: the black truffle hot sauce for $17.98, the "hotter" sauce for $17.98, and the white truffle hot sauce for $34.99.

    27. A bamboo burner cover to magically add an extra space for chopping up veggies in your too-small kitchen — it'll feel like you *poof* doubled your counter space!

    Jennifer Tonti / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed writer Jennifer Tonti credits this burner cover for helping her cook with ease:

    "OK so I just bought this for my own tiny apartment (pictured above) and OMG you guys. Life = changed. Food = chopped. Counter space = doubled. I mean the math is all there."

    Promising review: "This is so perfect for extra space. It covers the top of my apartment-sized stove so I can then use my stove space for my Instant Pot and food prep. The best space-saving and cosmetic thing I have ever gotten for this tiny apartment." —Talyn Amber Skye

    Get it from Amazon for $27.95+ (available in four styles).

    28. An air fryer (from the makers of the INSTANT POT!!), perfect for anyone who hasn't always been a big fan of leftovers but wants to make the most of all their delicious homemade meals. Best of all? You can crisp up your fave foods without all that oil.

    Hannah Loewentheil / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Best air fryer ever. I got this as a gift last year for Christmas, and it changed my life. I’m a 22-year-old nursing student, and I don’t have a lot of time to cook. This drastically cuts down time and makes food so crispy. Great for reheating leftovers (pizza). Preheats in minutes. I almost never use my oven anymore!" —TonyaM1973

    Amazon

    You can even pop these in the washing machine for a thorough cleaning.

    Promising review: "Not sure how these gloves would work with a buzz saw, but wearing them has changed my life as an oyster shucker (which is why I bought them). Absolutely perfect! I can hold the oyster in my hand and go for it without fear of the shell slicing my hands. The knife has slipped a few times to stab me, and it stopped that as well. Super easy wash up as well." —Footsie

    Promising review: "These liners are life-changing! I never thought I needed them until a friend raved about them. Clean up is so simple, no more melted cheese or sauces burnt to the bottom of my ovens. I love that I can cut them down to size to fit my toaster oven. My husband enjoys grilling with the liners now, he doesn't have to line the grill with aluminum foil which he found so annoying, deterring him to grill. This product really has simplified my life in the kitchen and I love it." —Kindle Custommer

    32. A breakfast sandwich maker for those rainy Sunday mornings where all you want is a cure to your hangover but can't physically venture farther than the kitchen.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I purchased this glorious breakfast sandwich maker and I have to tell you, it's changed my life. It's slightly contraband being located inside my cubicle and plugged in next to my monitors — but what it's cost me in work appropriateness it's more than made up for in deliciousness, fame, and glory. I've become a hero among the other analysts: one of them even erected a cardboard idol of my head in tribute. The sandwiches emerge perfectly cooked and heartily delicious. I keep a small spray bottle with a vinegar solution on-hand for easy cleaning and to ward off unwelcome visitors and lurking spectators of my epic breakfast delights. And so, I salute you, breakfast sandwich maker — for making me a better and fuller person. I'm now 100% less hangry and enjoying greater and greater work satisfaction as well as positive interactions with my peers. Who knew you'd make a good person out of me." —Catherine J.

They all turned out yummy. I used half gallon jars and the glass weights, and didn't have any mold problems! I was not prepared for the smells though. Love this product as it makes it so easy to get some tasty probiotics into your gut." —Claudia Turner

    Promising review: "This is one of my favorite things I have purchased for our tiny apartment! It's a pretty good size cutting board and I can see it fitting over most sinks. I LOVE the bowl inside that can let wet ingredients drain liquid directly into the sink. It's seriously SO nice to have this when you're limited on counter space!" —Atara

Great for making the side dishes or smaller main dishes. If you haven't gotten on board the Instant Pot train, do not hesitate! This mini pot even makes yogurt. The benefits to pressure cooking are numerous, using the Instant Pot makes it incredibly easy. Can you tell I'm completely smitten with this little appliance?! It proudly sits on my counter and is used nearly every single day." —Prairie Princess
