    1. A food processor/blender combo that'll help you save some dollars since you'll only need one of these bad boys to whip up some delish recipes.


    Promising review: "This is a brilliant idea. The 2-in-1 blender and food processor is great for storage when you don’t have lots of cabinets. I’ll definitely recommend this product and would buy it as gifts for Mother’s Day or Christmas presents." —Nikki72

    2. 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 your kitchen., Amazon

    Promising review: "FAM. I need you to lissssssen. I would give this product 87 stars if I could. You'd think it would be one of those gimmicky kitchen appliances that barely even works. EXCEPT you're wrong. It's amazing. It's quick. Look. Lissssten. You put the ingredients in and about two minutes later your tummy is all like 'oh yesssss.' Basically. Just buy it. Purchase the sammich maker. You're welcome." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    3. A simple cooktop burner that'll work as an amazing alternative to cooking on a full stovetop and is essential if you've been itching to start filming your own top-down cooking tutorials.

    I can think of so many reasons why you'd need one of these lil' cooktop burners. They're great if you live in a tiny apartment that doesn't fit a full stove, excellent if you're having work done on your kitchen but still want to cook a meal at home, or if you need a portable cooktop. The options are endless!

    Promising review: "Bought two Duxtop 8100MCs back in March 9, 2016, and still working perfectly as of today January 8, 2018. I use them frequently with induction pot to make Mongolian hotpot and a cast-iron pan for grilling steak. Easy to control heat, and high heat is useful when you want to get the water to reach boiling temperature quickly. Once you've got it where you want, reduce the heat to medium to prevent burning." —sfbay5555

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in three styles).

    4. A handheld knife sharpener you can use to bring your most-used kitchen utensils back to life in a flash without destroying your countertop or cutting boards.


    Promising review: "I gotta say this is the best sharpener I ever bought in my whole life. I got it today and brought it to work. I work at a Japanese restaurant as a sushi chef and I sharpened it at work and, wow, my knife was as sharp as a samurai sword! Even my coworkers were surprised and asked me to order one for them. Thanks for the product ! Now I don't have to use the stone or sharpen rod that much anymore." —Rodrigo

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    5. A rapid egg cooker that'll make your breakfast faster than you can say, "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?".


    One little machine that can whip up hard-boiled eggs, poached eggs, scrambled eggs and omelettes? Sounds magical! And let me tell you — it is. Get one of these egg-cellent appliances ASAP. Read our deep dive into the Dash Rapid Egg Cooker.

    Promising review: "Works great! Makes perfect hard boiled eggs every time. I've been boiling eggs in a pot all this time and always have one or two crack on me and sometimes they are still longer with this handy gadget! Requires very little cleaning too. After use, I rinse the trays and cover with water and set it in the rack to dry. I wipe the metal base with a wet paper towel and that's it. After the buzzer sounds, I unplug it and let the eggs sit about five minutes longer because I like them extra hardboiled. I also prick each one before cooking and never had one break/explode on me. The footprint is small and it fits nicely in my cabinet but looks cute on the countertop too." —Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in four colors).

    6. An affordable rice cooker, so you can prepare up to 8 cups of any type of rice with just the click of a button.,

    I have this exact rice cooker and I could not be happier with it. My husband insisted we buy it to make our lives a little easier when trying to make nutritious meals during the week. It does all the work for you so you can prep the rest of your meal while your rice cooks — it's fantastic. I mean, over 6K Amazon customers have taken the time to give it a five-star review! So, I'm not alone in my obsession with this lil' appliance.

    Promising review: "Aroma Digital Rice Cooker and Food Steamer is going to be your best friend if you cook and eat rice often. The last thing you want is uncooked, hard rice that’s not edible or burnt. There are many cheaper alternatives with a single switch that can cook or keep warm, but this rice cooker can delay up to 15 hours, which is perfect to get it ready for coming home after work. I’ve tried out a few rice cookers myself, and this works perfectly to prepare some steamy rice that’s just right. You scoop rice, pour into the bowl, rinse, add enough water, press the button, wait, and eat. I’m sure even a caveman could do it!" —Normal Consumer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.92+ (available in three styles).

    7. A classic toaster that'll give you the opportunity to shout, "LET'S GET THIS BREAD!" right before your bagel pops out.,

    There's something so ~Sunday morning~ about waiting for your toast to announce it's ready to eat by popping up from a classic toaster, don't you think? This version has a dual control panel, essentially making it two toasters in one!

    Promising review: "Easy to use. Works perfectly. Once you find the number that makes toast browned the way you like it, you’re all set! Works great on bagels! Have had for many months now and use almost daily so it has had the opportunity to show off any quirks and I’m glad to say, there are none. The four-slice feature is a lifesaver when making quantities of toast or bagels. I researched toasters extensively, and based on reviews I went with this one. Have not been sorry for one minute. Buy with peace of mind." —Kyla Petit

    Get it from Amazon for $51.04.

    8. Or a convection toaster oven, perfect for (obviously) toasting things but also for baking single-serve meals. Sorry regular oven, we're on a break.


    Shocker: You don't necessarily need to turn on your massive oven to bake every meal. Whether you're reheating some frozen leftovers or you need to toast up to six slices of bread, this convection over has got your hungry back.

    Promising review: "This is a kick-@ss toaster oven. I almost use it more than my wall oven just because of its convenience and options. I've roasted almonds, toasted bread, pitas, baked sweet potato, made pizza, heated up tater tots, broiled fish, etc. I would definitely buy this again. It has a sleek, modern look to it and is super easy to use. The convection feature is pretty good too. It's easy to clean. I lined the crumb tray with foil to avoid burnt-on messes. You won't go wrong with this." —S. Remtulla

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available with dual-rack or three-rack positions)

    9. An electric coffee grinder with over 9K five-star reviews that'll save you from exerting yourself too much while preparing your fave beverage., Amazon

    I can't tell you how many times I have watched my husband relentlessly try to grind coffee beans in a handheld grinder. It takes SOOOO long and is the last thing you want to do before you've had any caffeine. This awesome electric grinder takes all the hard work out of grinding, well, anything! It is said to grind up to three ounces of coffee beans in seconds. Pretty amazing.

    Promising review: "We use this grinder daily for coffee beans. I have used it for grinding coriander seeds, and it did that just as well. It is a nice size, and looks good on the counter. It is easy to use, and easy to clean. I actually can get most of the coffee grounds out just by brushing around with the edge of a plastic measuring spoon, since the grounds want to stick by static electricity after you run the grinder. This is about my favorite small appliance (in a close race with the toaster)." —Elizabeth Mckenzie

    Get it from Amazon for $18.94+ (available in four styles).

    10. A pineapple corer, so you'll be prepared when you inevitably get the urge to whip up some fancy piña coladas.


    Promising review: "I was quite impressed with how easy this actually was to use and how quick it was. It's plenty sharp, and cuts very well. The price is very inexpensive, so I don't know why I haven't been using this for years to cut pineapple! It's actually genius and I don't know how I got through any summers without one honestly. Now I can enjoy my favorite fruit without the stress of coring it perfectly." —Sim07

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Tasty line from Walmart for $8.97.

    11. An electric food chopper, a must-have if your knife skills are so-so and you'd rather not cut off a finger this year.,

    Facts: During my childhood my mom used to accidentally slice open her hand/finger/etc., while prepping the majority of our meals. If you're like her, get yourself one of these Ninja Food Choppers stat.

    Promising review: "I already have a food processor but it's large and heavy, and not the easiest to clean. It doesn't get used much unless I really, really need it. Going on Whole30, I knew I was going to be doing a lot more food prep, and I wanted something that took up less space and was easier to clean, so I snagged one of these. I have used it regularly ever since, and it's been great! The dual blade is really great at chopping things fast and evenly. They are exceptionally sharp, so watch out when washing it!" —Sharon Rose

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    12. A ~professional~ blender, so you can start your mornings off right with a healthy smoothie or end your nights with a delicious milkshake.


    Guys, more than 2,000 Amazon customers took the time to give this blender a five-star review. This is also our BuzzFeed Reviews affordable pick for the best blender!

    Promising review: "This thing is a marvel of smart design and high-quality precision manufacturing. They do not lie...fill it with ice cubes, run it, and you get snow! Because it has blades top to bottom this baby kicks out my breakfast smoothie in less than a minute. Everything is good. The pour spout stays open when pouring by magnets or magic, I can't tell, but it stays up and never opens when blending. The pitcher locks onto the motor logically and effortlessly. Clean up is easy: warm water and a drop of soap, run on high for a minute and rinse. DONE! It's even really easy to clean the base, sealed and wipeable all around. Bummed I didn't get one of these long ago." —James R.

    Get it from Amazon for $87.99.

    13. Or a three-speed hand blender that'll save you some kitchen space if you only have a smoothie craving once in a while.


    I actually have this exact hand blender and have used it to make pesto, blend soups, and milkshakes. It's very efficient and obviously much slimmer than a full-sized blender, so it fits neatly into my kitchen cabinets.

    Promising review: "I love this stick blender!!! We don’t have space in our kitchen for any more appliances but I really wanted to replace our old blender. I found this immersion blender with all the attachments, and for the price — I had to try it out. I’ve used almost all the attachments (except the whisk), and have never had any issues blending a single thing. I’ve chopped almonds, walnuts and cashews, vegetables and garlic in the chopping attachment with no issue. I’ve used the blender and tall cup for sweet potatoes and for soup. I really don’t think I’ll need a blender anytime soon; this little thing is super powerful and a true space saver!" —Jaime_Ranay

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (available in white or black).

    14. An inexpensive cold brew maker so you can make as much cold brew as you want (AKA... A LOT.)


    Start saving your hard earned dollars and make your own iced coffee at home! Thanks to this amazing iced cold brew maker from Takeya, you can easily sip on your favorite drink without breaking the bank. Almost 2.5K hyped-up amazon reviewers gave this gadget five stars — so you know it's gotta be good.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    15. An air fryer that's all the rage right now, perfect for anyone with limited time who wants to cook less greasy meals faster.


    Promising review: "I love this air fryer! I use it to make hamburgers, chicken wings, sausages, bacon, to cook vegetables, and to reheat already cooked foods. I do a lot of grilling in the summer but I don't like cooking meat indoors because of the smoke and grease that gets everywhere. This air fryer does not smoke and grease does not escape. Everything I have made so far has come out very well cooked and delicious. It's also very fast. I have no complaints so far and I'm very glad I got this air fryer." —JKS

    Get it from Amazon for $99.98+ (available in three colors).

    16. Or an equally popular Instant Pot with so many uses you'll need to take a deep breath before deciding what you should make with it first.

    Instant Pots are having a MAJOR moment these days, so it's time to jump on the bandwagon and get your own if you don't have one already! This bad boy is a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, and food warmer, plus it can sauté. I don't really think further explanation is necessary. Read our full review of The Instant Pot.

    Promising review: "I've had it for only two weeks and I swear I haven't touched my stove or pans. So easy to use and so many functions. You can sauté meat, make hardboiled eggs, perfect rice and beans, and steam vegetables in a matter of minutes. The Instant Pot community is large and there are always recipes to be shared. So simple to use and clean. I've made anything from perfectly hard boiled eggs whose shells just fall off on their own, to soups, Mongolian beef and spaghetti! I am so glad I jumped in the instant pot bandwagon and cannot wait to purchase accessories in the future to make cheesecake and other things." —yestfl

    Get it from Amazon for $56.27+ (available in 3-quart, 6-quart, or 8-quart).

    17. An electric indoor grill, so you can make mouthwatering burgers all year long whether it's 20 or 90 degrees outside.


    Using this lil' grill is so simple a monkey could probably do it. Throw your meat on, close the top, and BOOM — dinner is served. It even has a viewing window so you can make sure your food isn't burning.

    Promising review: "Seriously, I love this grill. Recently moved into the city and can't use my grill so thought I'd give this a try. Man, it's amazing how well this works considering what it is and what it costs. I really can't see why anyone would have ANYTHING negative to say about it. The first two meals I cooked on it looked fantastic and tasted even better. Seriously, if you've been on the fence about this grill, get off and just buy it. You won't be disappointed." —AdventureChuck

    Get it from Amazon for $64.99+ (available in four styles).

    18. A spiralizer you'll love so much it'll make you want to turn everything in your life into a noodle (but maybe just stick to veggies, OK?).


    Admittedly, I've realized I should probably start incorporating things other than pasta into my meal rotations because eating the same thing ALL THE TIME is super boring. But I love pasta. What's a not-so-great chef to do? Enter this lil' gadget. It's gonna be a game changer for your week night meals. Learn more about the Paderno World Cuisine spiralizer here!

    Promising review: "I love this little kitchen tool. I can make zucchini noodles in less time than it takes to boil water for regular noodles. It's super easy to use, just stick the end of your veggie over the 'hole' on the grating plate, press the crank end into the other end of the veggie, and start cranking. Voila: Zoodles. Cleaning is easy too. Everything comes apart. The white parts just rinse clean, and for the blades, I use a kitchen scrub brush." —Dreamer

    Get it from Amazon for $23.65+ (available in three styles).

    19. A 5 Minute Chef meal maker to get food on the table faster after a horrific day where all you want to do is stuff your face and crawl under the covers., Amazon

    Promising review: "Just received it yesterday, made omelets this AM. Started with diced peppers, onion, and ham in well for about 40 seconds, then added two eggs and a splash of milk (scrambled together) and topped with some shredded cheese. Three minutes with closed lid 'til almost set then held the handles together and flipped for one minute. I DID NOT lock it at any time while cooking, only after I finished wiping it with a damp cloth and setting it up to store on the counter. Great little product, easy for the whole family to use and clean up after themselves!" —Cas

    Get it from Amazon for $19.89.

    20. A Belgian waffle maker, just like the ones you'll find waiting for you during a hotel buffet breakfast. (And everyone knows those waffles are ALWAYS the best.)


    As the great Leslie Knope once said, "We need to remember what's important in life: friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn't matter, but work is third."

    Promising review: "This is one incredible waffle maker. Bought it six months ago and it makes the BEST waffles. So easy to clean this machine. Use a little spray oil and waffles just won't stick; they lift out so easily and in one piece. Easy to tell when they're ready too, but you do have to watch for when the steam stops rising. These removable plates are so nice because they come off and go on so easily, and nothing seems to stick to them. While I wish it had an on/off switch and a longer electric cord, I wouldn't trade this waffle maker in for any other one on the market." —Rick

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (available in ceramic or nonstick).

    21. Or a Dash mini waffle maker in case you prefer your breakfast to be bite-sized and adorable (and who wouldn't?!).


    Promising review: "I love this waffle maker. I am the only one who eats waffles in the house, so the size is perfect for me. For the Belgian waffle recipe I used I only needed to use maybe 2–3 tablespoons of batter to make a waffle. Anymore than 2–3 tablespoons and the batter is dripping out the sides as it cooks. Three waffles and I'm full. I would suggest to cook the waffles well where the middle isn't soggy is to wait until the light comes and put your batter in, then wait until three light cycles and you'll have tasty waffles." —K Edwards

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in 10 styles).

    22. A SodaStream you can use to make your own household version of La Croix without the hassle of having to carry a heavy case of cans home from the store.


    Promising review: "I love this SodaStream! It was my Mother's Day gift to myself! I love sparkling water, but hated throwing away four or five plastic bottles daily. With the SodaStream, I can add a sprig of mint to the water, or slices of ginger, or basil, or a squeeze of lime or orange. The only warning is you need to physically hold the bottle up tight during the process to prevent water spraying everywhere." —JaneInTexas

    Get it from Amazon for $134.95 (available in four colors).

    23. A standard coffee machine, to keep you caffeinated without frustrating you with over-the-top machinery and confusing instructions.


    Promising review: "I have been using the basic Mr. Coffee, since I had tried the programmable one years ago and found I didn’t actually program it very often. My husband ordered this one when our last Mr. Coffee quit because I couldn’t find a non-programmable Mr. Coffee anywhere. It came to us very quickly and we have been surprised to learn we like using the programmable function. It’s easy to set and we love waking up to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee." —Mmm Dee

    Get it from Amazon for $28.66.

    24. A Crock-Pot, which may haunt your dreams if you love This Is Us, but will change your life if you're into meal prepping.,

    Promising review: "Say whatever you want about the Instant Pot and my reply is who wants instant food! This is great. You can get the whole place smelling good and the food comes out perfectly cooked. High, low, and keep warm temps. Very convenient! Yesterday I tossed in every piece of chicken in my freezer, a package of frozen carrots a can of cream of something soup and a can of water. Perfect. And the people upstairs kept asking what smelled so great. Of course I said an old family recipe handed down." —Annajustmay

    Get it from Amazon for $20.49+ (available in 3, 4, 6, 7, or 8 quarts.

    25. A heavy-duty juicer, so you can put all those fruits and veggies you scored at the farmer's market to good use.


    Promising review: "I've been caught by the juicing bug, and I looked into which ones had the best performance. This one has been great, and I've already made several gallons of juice from it in only a couple of days. It's relatively simple to dismantle and clean, plus it's dishwasher-safe, so you can get it especially clean if you want to. I'm glad we went with the Breville. I can't think of anything about it that I would change. The base is solid, the whole mechanism snaps together tightly with the metal bar. The separation of juice from the pulp during operation is very efficient. Most of the pulp left over is dry, so you know you're getting your money's worth out of the produce you put into it." —D. Villella

    Get it from Amazon for $145.99

    26. Or a soft serve machine that'll turn your favorite fruit into your new go-to dessert in no time at all.


    Promising review: "It is a true marvel of science, magically producing perfect frozen yogurt from fruit, yes that's right, magic. It blew my mind how similar it is to real ice cream. If you had placed a bowl in front of me, I dare say I would not recognize its true composition of pure fruit. Magic frozen yogurt which I am now guiltlessly consuming as I transcribe this very review." —Tosh

    27. A KitchenAid hand mixer you can use to whip up your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe without wearing out your arm., Amazon

    Some of us (sadly) don't have the counter space for a full-sized KitchenAid mixer... yet. So, until that magical day comes we can still whip up delicious recipes using this fabulous seven-speed hand mixer. This is also our BuzzFeed Reviews mid-priced pick for best hand mixer!

    Promising review: "This product is great for a home chef who is often making recipes that require two different ingredients to be whipped or beaten and is too lazy to wash out the standing mixer bowl. I am frequently making cakes that need beaten egg whites and whipped fresh cream and this is a real time-saver. Over 20+ years as a family and consumer science teacher and now a home chef predominantly, I've purchased more than my fair share of hand mixers. I was glad to find this quality product available at reasonable price." —Classy Counselor

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in seven colors).

    28. A 14-cup food processor that'll bring any stress you've had over a difficult recipe to a grinding halt.


    Promising review: "My old food processor died a horrible death by introducing itself to the floor from counter height. I looked around for a while before finally deciding on this one for a variety of reasons — I liked the safety features, being able to load in extra items while the blades are running, and the power it seemed to have. After having this for several months, I'm super happy my old processor took the plunge. This is one of the few appliances I keep on my counter because I've I use it several times a week. It shreds well, it cuts well, it chops things into oblivion. I've even used it to make dough and cheeseballs; it didn't walk all over the counter or budge at all. It ate through a 10-pound bag of onions in minutes! I'd definitely buy this again in the future so long as it doesn't burn out on me in the next few years." —Bernstein

    Get it from Amazon for $155.62+ (available in seven colors).

    29. A bread maker, because I promise you there can be NOTHING better than filling your home with the decadent scent of freshly baked bread.


    CARBS FOR ALL! Not only will the smell that radiates from this machine have your mouth watering, but you'll be able to save dollars by baking your own bread each week. There's also a gluten-free baking option! What DOESN'T sound good about this?

    Promising review: "This is the appliance I never knew I needed! I am blown away. I have been baking most of my husband's bread for several years. He has celiac disease and must have a gluten-free diet. This bread maker has a gluten-free setting, which works awesome. I've made loaf after loaf and they've all come out great! And it's so easy. I just have to dump my ingredients in and walk away. It's never been so easy. And I've discovered it does other things I had no idea a bread maker could do! I have made several batches of jam in it and they all come out great. This poor machine has run for days straight now making one thing after another as I tested it out. I wasn't sure I was going to keep it at first because I didn't think I needed another appliance — I tried it on a whim. I'm so glad I did. It has really made my life much easier!" —Laura A.

    30. An electric wine bottle opener that'll make you the envy of all your friends while they're home struggling to open their bottle of red by hand. Suckersssss.


    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for both my mother and step mother on Mother's day. They both love it. My mom has arthritis pretty bad in her hands but loves wine. This product saves her hands from having to grip and twist the cork bottle opener. You can have a bottle of wine opened in four seconds with this product. The foil remover is super spiffy too because no more sliding a knife carefully around the edge! Just place over the foil, grip together and twist in one motion. This is a great product and as soon as I'm not broke anymore I'm getting myself one." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    31. A pressure cooker, steamer, and air fryer all in one, so efficient you might consider donating all of your other appliances.


    Promising review: "I was really curious when I saw Ninja was jumping into the pressure cooker arena. On top of that, all you hear about these days are air fryers. The merging of the two sounded amazing! One less extra huge machine, doing the combo like this. I love the recipe book that comes in the box. There's even a very long listed chart in the back with timing/settings for ingredients (chicken breasts, rice, oatmeal etc). The whole recipe book is a great starting point to begin cooking and familiarizing yourself with the machine." —H.F.

    Get it from Amazon for $189.99.

    32. A vacuum sealer that'll help you preserve your produce, marinate your meats, and generally have a bit more fun in the kitchen.,

    Promising review: "I'm so pleased with this food vacuum sealer. Our other food sealer broke but I hated that thing (obviously different brand). It was bulky, loud, and difficult to use. This one is slim, sleek, and easy to use. No more multiple times just trying to get a bag to seal. It worked flawlessly and I really put it through it's paces right out of the box with having to package about 60 lbs. of meat. Thank you for making such a great product." —Bryan E. Long

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in four styles).

    33. A deep fryer, so you can try to recreate the satisfying experience of eating a McDonald's fry while it's still hot but in the comfort of your own kitchen.


    Promising review: "Have been looking for a fryer that lets me regulate the heat better, that is large enough to fry several Schnitzle (breaded pork chops) at the same time. Excellent price and very nice looking sitting on the counter. Was shipped very quickly." —Gertie F.

    Get it from Amazon for $45.49.

    34. An espresso machine that'll assist you in making the lattes of your dreams (without having to get out of your pajamas!).

    While, yes, the initial spend on this machine is pricey, just think of all the dollars you'll save by not hitting up your local coffee shop or Starbucks every day!

    Promising review: "Fantastic espresso machine. You get your grinder (with adjustable dosage, and two dials to change the coarseness — the second adjustment is directly inside the grinder), pump, steam wand, hot water spout, and a nice tamper all in one machine! The accessories you get with it are great as well: the porta-filter holder (duh), four baskets (single- and double-serve with single walls and the same in double-wall setup), precision dosage razor, frothing pitcher, and the cleaning kit. Really don't need much more than this, so if you're looking for a serious espresso machine with all included, this one is it. And the 1,600+ reviews and average over 4.3 stars just proves that." —D & R

    Get it from Amazon for $499.95 .

    35. And a KitchenAid Stand Mixer, aka the holy grail of appliances, you've definitely been eyeing forever in hopes of taking your baking game to the next level.

    kitchenaidusa / Via

    While it does cost a pretty penny, it is so worth it. With over 7K five-star reviews on Amazon, this item pretty much speaks for itself. It comes in so many colors, you can decorate your whole kitchen around it — and don't get me started on the features! It has 10 optimized speeds that can take any on recipe you throw at it, has a tilt-head design for easy cleaning, and comes with four attachments.

    Promising review: "I had to wear earplugs when using my old mixer, it was so loud and always sounded like it was overloaded! This one is not only quiet but much better at mixing! The beater gets to the edges much better, and the added bonus of the pouring shield has me in baking heaven! If you are concerned about spending a lot of money for a mixer, don't.
