    It's time to change that! Whether you're looking to up your baking game or you've been dying to try out some more ~intermediate~ recipes, Walmart has tons of items that fit the bill.

    1. A French press coffee maker that looks more expensive than it is, to brew up some morning motivation.


    Quick coffee is convenient, but it also usually tastes as such. Take a little extra care making your morning cup 'o joe by spending some time with this durable French press. It's ideal for finely ground beans and honestly will just look super fancy on your kitchen counter.

    Get it from Walmart for $19.64+ (available in 3-cup, 4-cup, or 8-cup options).

    2. This 7-quart Crock-Pot that may haunt your dreams if you watch This Is Us, but will change your life if you're into meal prepping.


    Never, and I mean NEVER, underestimate the power of a good Crock-Pot. This specific one is dishwasher-safe (yes!), has removable oval stoneware that doubles as a serving dish, and a convenient warm setting (for the family that is frequently eating at different times). It makes enough food to feed nine people β€” just imagine how many meals you can freeze for another night!

    Promising review: "My mom had one, I have one, and now my young adult daughter has one! Trusted companion through time. Lots of competition out there, but I swore and swear by Crock-Pot. After visiting 'brick and mortar' retailers, I convinced her she didn't need the 'digital' stuff. This product keeps it simple. The bonus was that it came with a cookbook β€” which is TERRIFIC! Who else could do it better? Thank you!" β€”kanek

    3. This electric potato peeler to help you transform spuds into mashed potatoes at record speed., Walmart

    If you're anything like me, you know that mashed potatoes are the ultimate side dish. Whether you're team lumpy potatoes or team creamy potatoes, the one thing we can all agree on is that peeling said vegetable can be a real pain. So, let me introduce you to the Starfrit Rotato Express Electric Peeler. It peels both veggies and fruits (not JUST potatoes but...priorities). It is said to peel a potato in 10 seconds flat! I don't know about you, but I definitely need to try it out.

    Promising review: "My wife is suffering from arthritis, but her famous mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving and Christmas are a must. I bought this peeler to help take care of the 80 lbs of potatoes which needed peeling. My grandson and I did this task in about 40 minutes. This peeler was so efficient, little to no waste, and super easy to clean up. My wife has recommended this to about five friends so far, and all five are planning on buying it. A MUST to save those hands and fingers." β€”Helperhusband

    Get it from Walmart for $17.59.

    4. A 15-piece bowl and baking set that's not only functional but will also add a fun pop of color to your kitchen.


    As they say on pretty much every Food Network competition show, "Welcome, bakers!" When I moved into my apartment with my now-husband, we had a mish-mosh of baking items that simply didn't go together. We made it work, but having a set like this one, which is colorful in a cohesive way, is SO satisfying. The set comes with a whisk, spatula, spoonula, measuring bowls, measuring spoons, and a melamine bowl with a lid for storing.

    Get it from Tasty's collection for Walmart for $16.49.

    5. A stylish batter bowl to decorate your kitchen counter and encourage you to try new recipes.


    If it's good enough for the Pioneer Woman, it's good enough for me and you! Made of durable stoneware, this bowl is so pretty you won't want to do anything else on the weekend but whip up a batch of cookies or some homemade brownies.

    Promising review: "I got this for my birthday. I love it. Large enough to mix 8 cups of any mix. I mixed up Rice Krispie treats and it was large enough to hold the 6 cups of cereal, plus 2 more cups to finish out the marshmallow mix. I would highly recommend it to anyone." β€”CharleneTN

    Get it from Walmart for $16.99 (available in four patterns).

    6. This roaster oven so you can make it feel like Thanksgiving every day!


    With over 1,200 reviews and a 4.5-star rating, it should come as no surprise that this kitchen gadget will make holiday cooking a breeze. It fits a 28-pound turkey, can hold 22 quarts, roasts, bakes and cooks. Another bonus? The rack can be easily lifted out to remove hot food and for cleaning. Fabulouuuuus!

    Promising review: "All that I expected and more. Bought this so I would have oven space for Thanksgiving. Tested it with a sirloin roast that came out perfectly. Cooked the turkey as directed in the booklet and it also came out perfectly. I did cook it longer than required and it was not dry. Juicy and falling off the bone the way we like it. If you get this product you will not be disappointed. Easy to clean, not bad-looking. All in all a great investment." β€”Terridiane

    Get it from Walmart for $34.99 (available in red and stainless steel).

    7. A 48-cup mini-muffin pan because you can never have enough bite-sized treats.


    One of my favorite things to meal-prep are oatmeal muffins or egg muffins. They're delicious but I can never seem to make as many as I want in a single baking session. This nonstick, dishwasher-safe mini-muffin pan easily solves that problem!

    Promising review: "I love this big pan! I got it about two weeks ago and already used it multiple times. With little kids at home, it makes cupcakes/muffins/other things the perfect size for them. I will also be using it to make birthday party cupcakes for my 3-year-old." β€”mpox

    Get it from Walmart for $8.88.

    8. This handheld grater to painlessly shred cheese, chocolate, or whatever else your heart desires.


    I don't consider myself a seasoned chef by any means, but I admittedly make an AMAZING baked mac 'n' cheese. The hardest part of the recipe? Grating all the damn cheese! Halfway through the block of cheddar I'm suffering from discomfort and hand cramping. Don't let a crappy kitchen tool stand between you and your mac. This item features a soft-grip handle β€” it's simply grate. ;)

    Promising review: "I never really thought I'd need a grater in the kitchen, but I have been watching A LOT of Tasty recipe videos where grating veggies is actually a crucial step. Graters tend to take up SO much space, which is tough in a shared kitchen. This is the only space-saving grater I've found and it's just as effective as any other! The blades are very sharp and you get a very consistent result. It also rinses easily, so no need to worry about cutting yourself if you're used to having scrub graters to get them clean. I'm super pleased with this and highly recommend to anyone with limited kitchen space!" β€”xtinaag

    Get it from Tasty's collection for Walmart for $7.80 (available in four colors).

    9. A KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-quart stand mixer, in case you feel like going ALL in on your kitchen appliance overhaul.


    If I had to guess, I would say the KitchenAid stand mixer is the number one most asked-for item on a wedding registry. This is the big-ticket item β€” and a standout one that screams "ADULT!" While it does cost a pretty penny, it is so worth it. With over 18,500 five-star reviews on Walmart, this item pretty much speaks for itself. It comes in so many colors you can decorate your whole kitchen around it β€” and don't get me started on the features! It has 10 optimized speeds that can take any on recipe you throw at it, a tilt-head design for easy cleaning, and comes with four attachments.

    Promising review: "Honestly I hear so many people say, 'I won't have room' but this SAVES room for me! I have a tiny kitchen and this sees more use than my hand mixer, so it can be left put away. This item mixes batter and then some! The speed at which it whips cream or egg whites and creams butter and sugar is fantastic. Cookie dough? Bread? Done! I love it so much, and it can do so many things with such a relatively small footprint. Easy to clean, and it looks snazzy as well." β€”KacieH

    Get it from Walmart for $278.99+ (available in 37 colors).

    10. This KitchenAid hand mixer to kickstart your "adult" kitchen appliance collection.


    IMHO, nothing says "adulting" more than owning a KitchenAid mixer. If you don't have the budget (yet) for the grand daddy of appliances (the standing mixer), fear not! This handheld mixer is perfect for someone who is just inching their way into the kitchen. It has five speeds, a lockable swivel cord, and stainless steel beaters. My favorite feature is the beater ejector button β€” if you've ever gotten your finger caught in a spinning beater, you'll know why.

    Promising review: "I almost returned this because I thought, 'Oh, it's going to be heavy, there's no room in my kitchen,' etc. β€” but I am so glad I tried it first! This mixer is light, powerful, and so easy to both use and clean!!! The beaters just snap in and the eject button pops them out so easily to rinse off. My cake batter and icing and glaze were the smoothest they have ever been. This product has actually changed my life." β€”Culinary mistress

    Get it from Walmart for $39.96+ (available in 16 colors).

    11. A 24-piece set of Pyrex storage containers that'll transform your cabinets from a disastrous mess to an organized haven.


    Last Black Friday my husband and I went in on a set of Pyrex storage containers and it was one of the best decisions we ever made. I was so tired of rummaging through takeout containers we had repurposed in order to find one that appropriately fit our leftovers. It was impossible to find a lid that paired with a container β€” and it was exhausting. These glass containers solved that issue immediately. The set comes with a containers of all shapes and sizes and are both freezer- and microwave-safe.

    Get it from Walmart for $28.94.

    12. This pizza pan so you can learn to make the perfect pie (and stop spending so much money on delivery).


    My parents have gone through a variety of pizza pans in an attempt to find the one that creates the best crust β€” this one was the winner. It has a perforated base that leaves the bottom of any homemade pizza perfectly crispy. Sorry not sorry for all the carbs you're about to inhale.

    Promising review: "This pan beats pizza stones and all non-perforated pizza pans. The pizza crust bottom comes out crispy when cooked in a typical oven at 400–450 degrees. The perforations are essential to getting this result." β€”FullFigure

    Get it from Walmart for $5.69.

    13. A pizza wheel with a soft grip, because how else are you going to cut all of those pizzas you're making?


    Even if you aren't into making your own pizza at home, you should definitely have a pizza wheel on hand. They're great for cutting other things like quesadillas and pastry dough. This one has a handle with a soft grip so it's easy to grasp and comfortable to use. The blade is stainless steel, which makes slicing easier than ever. Chances are this was a kitchen item you forgot to pick up, so now is your chance to add it into your line up!

    Promising review: "This is the perfect pizza cutter for deep-dish pizza. The large blade makes cutting a thicker crust super easy and the grip makes it easy to hold. A must have if you are a pizza lover." β€”GetInTheKitchen

    Get it from Tasty's collection for Walmart for $4.95.

    14. This 11-piece cookware set to replace your scratched and beat-up pots and pans.


    My first set of pots and pans were super cheap β€” and it showed. They had scratch marks and didn't hold heat very well. This new set is a huge upgrade. It comes in stylish colors that will brighten up any kitchen and includes a number of features that make it worth the purchase. The cookware has a nonstick diamond reinforced coating, heavy-gauge forged aluminum for optimum heat distribution, and silicone handles and knobs (just to name a few).

    Promising review: "I really like this set of cookware. I had some older pots and pans that had truly seen better days. I like to cook and bake so I really tend to put cookware through their paces. This stuff seems to work well. The food cooks well and evenly and the clean up is quick and easy. I'm glad I bought them. I'll probably get more of their products as need arises." β€”Ron70

    Get it from Tasty's collection for Walmart for $88 (available in four colors).

    15. A set of baking trays and cookie cutters to flawlessly bake fun-shaped treats.


    Did you know you don't HAVE to scrape the remaining bits of whatever you just baked off of your baking sheets? Replace your crummy burnt ones with these carbon steel, nonstick pans! The set also comes with four emoji cookie cutters that are sure to give you a laugh.

    Promising review: "I love these cookie cutters!! My kids love to make emoji cookies and treats! We've used the pans a few times and they are super easy to clean! No need to put them in the dishwasher because food just slips right off." β€”afm55

    Get it from Tasty's collection for Walmart for $8.97.

    16. This electric coffee and spice grinder that will save you from exerting yourself too much while preparing a meal or beverage.


    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: "A perfect fit for me! Just the right size to fit into my coffee station area, I love the short cord which is very easy to hide behind the product itself. The grinding process is quiet, quick, under 10 seconds for my preference. Very easy on-and-off top, which has a nice snug fit for no grounds leaking out. The price was also a perfect fit, very reasonable for this quality grinder." β€”azalea

    Get it from Walmart for $15.96.

    17. A 12-piece dinnerware set so you can convince anyone who comes over for a meal that you are freakin' fancy.


    These stoneware plates feature a delicate lace pattern around the edges and they make me want to squeal. They come in a bunch of colors and the set includes with dinner plates, salad plates, and bowls β€” so you're basically ready to host a charming dinner party!

    Promising review: "LOVE my new plates/bowls! I was looking for something simple but kind of antique-y. These are perfect! We live in an old family house that was built in the early 1930s and they fit the house wonderfully!" β€”Aaro B

    Get it from Walmart for $39.92 (available in five colors).

    18. This set of mason jars, which will help you organize any stray items floating around your kitchen.


    In my house we use mason jars for EVERYTHING! In the bathroom I use them to store bath salts, cotton swabs, and bobby pins, and in the living room my husband uses them as succulent planters β€” but it's the kitchen where they really shine. We have about 12 stacked up on a shelf to store loose tea and spices. It has become a talking point for visitors and creates an artsy aesthetic out of something so simple. This set from Walmart comes with four 16 oz jars to use however you see fit!

    19. A five-piece wine bottle corkscrew and accessory set that is so chic your guests will definitely ask you where you got it from.


    Are you tired of misplacing corkscrews and bottle openers? Yep, me too. Mine is always lost in the junk drawer of my kitchen at the exact moment I need it, which makes this product super appealing. It looks like a wine bottle (and can be stored as such) but actually opens up to reveal every item you'd ever need to open and serve a bottle of wine. It would also be the perfect gift for any wine aficionado.

    Promising review: "This five-piece set has everything needed to make a quiet picnic or a trip to a vineyard, an absolute delight. The set includes a stainless-steel corkscrew with foil cutting knife, a drip-stop collar, a combination wine pourer/stopper, and a dedicated foil cutter, all packaged in a handsome wine-shaped package with a smart magnetic closure. It can be stored vertically on the counter or just stashed in your wine rack at home, ready to pop out and open all James Bond-style, cool and smooth." β€”LinetteFMR

    Get it from Walmart for $11.

    20. And a 19-piece kitchen utensil and gadget set that will make you smile from ear to ear each time you use it.


    I dare you not to grin after glancing at that heart-eye emoji kitchen timer. This set is so colorful and fun! It would make for a fun starter kit for a new cook (no matter the age), but would also be the perfect way to upgrade any dingy, old utensils you have lying around the house. The kit comes with the timer, a 10 piece measuring spoon and cup set, two silicone spatulas, a whisk, two tongs, and a three-piece strainer set. This product certainly measures up ;)

    Get it from Tasty's collection for Walmart for $19.88.
