    1. A simple, nonslip rubber jar opener so that a stubborn lid doesn't stand between you and those delicious pickles you've been dreaming about.

    Model uses the opener to open a jar

    Promising review: "These work when nothing else does. I stole one from my mom 20 years ago when I moved out. I have used it numerous times for all these years, and it just gets better as it gets older. It will open anything, and makes my grip strong. I always wanted another one to keep on my RV. Then I found these — same product! Every home should have at least one." —Dianne

    2. A pack of dishwasher-cleaning tablets because who wants to spend time loading up the dishwasher only for it to present you with dishes that are STILL dirty????

    Reviewer photo showing a cup and silverware before and after using the cleaning tablets

    These tablets are designed to penetrate, dissolve, and remove odor-causing residue that accumulates inside your dishwasher over time, as well as remove lime and mineral build-up. Using Affresh tablets once a month can prolong the life of your dishwasher and make it more effective at doing its job: cleaning your dishes.

    Promising review: "Works extremely well. We haven't done any cleaning on our dishwasher in five years, and the sliding dish trays were tough to pull out or push in, there was detergent build up all over the inside, and there was a milky film on all our cups. I bought Affresh, ran the dishwasher with two tablets while it was empty, and the difference was astounding. There was still some build up and I figured it would require another cycle, so I popped another two tablets in, ran the machine a second time, and now it looks and sounds brand new. No more film on the glasses, no more dirty dishes from clogged sprayers, no more odors, or build up around the door seals. I'm going to be buying Affresh from now on, and hopefully it will extend the life of my dishwasher." —Martoune

    3. An upholstery stain remover so that knocking over, say, an entire bottle of wine doesn't have to ruin your night (or your carpet).

    Promising review: "YOU NEED THIS IF YOU HAVE KIDS OR PETS!!! I am convinced this stuff is magic in a bottle! If I can get up an ENTIRE bottle of ketchup that was rubbed in the carpet, you can get out anything!" —Ashley T.

    4. Some Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips to remove years of stains in under a month using the same enamel-safe whitening ingredient that dentists use. You'll see a difference in just three days, which, TBH, is the kind of instant gratification I'm looking for.

    BuzzFeed Reviews,

    It even includes 1 Hour Express Strips that give you same day results if you need a little last minute whitening!

    Promising review: "Great product! I was skeptical at first, because any OTC teeth-whitening product I’ve ever used never worked for me. Only professional dental bleaching has. I tried this and saw a difference after the fifth treatment. I did like that you can use it every day until you’re done with all 14 treatments. That way you can see results a lot faster. I’ll be repurchasing this regularly now (every six months like it says) to always have a nice white smile." —Danny

    5. A toiletries shower locker so you don't reach for your expensive shampoo only to find that your roommate helped themselves to the last of it.

    Promising review: "I put a unit in the kids' shower for my daughter, as she is always complaining of her brother using her bathing goods. My son has a large mirror in his room, and this unit fits perfectly in the bottom of the mirror to function as a little cabinet (additionally it is see through so I can see anything my son hides in there)." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    6. On that subject, a book about roommates to help you find one that won't do things like steal your fancy shampoo and eat all your leftovers. It also guides you through the awkward talks that come with already being in a less-than-ideal roomie situation.

    Front cover of the book
    Andrews McMeel Publishing

    Promising review: "I love this book! Very creative, cute, and hilarious. If you've ever had (or currently have) a roommate, you can relate to the advice, anecdotes, and hand-drawn pictures! Need to drop some subtle hints to your current roomie? This book makes a great gift filled with lots of passive dos and don'ts for all shared living situations!" —Austin L. Rundall

    7. Some streak-free anti-fog spray you'll wish you had every time your eyeglasses, sunglasses, and face shields get all cloudy from wearing a mask. Make future you fog-free!

    A reviewer image of a person wearing unfogged glasses with their face mask holding up the spray

    Promising review: "I have tried everything to keep my glasses from fogging with my mask and this product is by far the best. I'm sorry I waited so long to purchase it. I live in the Florida Keys and do a lot of diving and snorkeling and it works fabulous for my dive mask also. I would highly recommend Optix 55 Fog Gone. Great price, also I think this bottle will last a very long time." —Bebe

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55+ (available in three sizes).

    8. A pack of motion-sensing LED lights so you don't stub your toe for like the millionth time when all you wanted was a glass of water in the middle of the night. No professional installation needed — you can just stick them on!

    A stairway illuminated by the lights

    They're battery-powered (three AAA batteries; not included) for cordless installation. They automatically turn on within 10 feet and automatically shut off after 15 seconds of no motion detected.

    Promising review: "Excellent unwired lights for places that would benefit from having lights but you don’t want the hassle and expense of hiring an electrician to do the wiring for the lights. I have four of these lights inside hallway shelves. This hallway gets a lot of foot traffic. In the evening, these lights get triggered on by a passerby at least 20 times. I’ve had these lights for two whole months, and the original batteries are still good to go. Please be advised that these white lights are rather cool temperature lights. I would estimate around 5,000K. If you’re looking for something slightly warmer (i.e. slightly more yellow) then opt for the warm white version." —H. Jonathan K. Park

    Get them from Amazon: a six-pack for $21.99+ (available in four colors) or a three-pack for $15.99 (available in two colors).

    9. A FURemover broom made from natural rubber bristles that attract pet hair like a magnet so you can easily remove that extra layer of fur that regular brooms never reach from carpet, tile, hardwood, and linoleum.,

    Plus, the broom itself is super easy to clean. Work smarter not harder!

    Promising Review: "I bought this broom two years ago and it is still going strong! I have four large breed dogs and we have fur — EVERYWHERE! This works so so good! I came back and purchased one for my neighbor and sent one to my favorite pet rescue down south. I am always amazed at what this picks up even after I just ran the vacuum. If you remove the head from the handle, you can use the head to go in all the crevices along baseboards where fur gets trapped on the carpets. I also use it that way to do the carpet corners on the stairs. Lastly I use it to get dust and cobwebs off the floors and ceilings. It truly is a super tool." —Roseann

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    10. And a waterproof car seat cover so that your fave furry car companion doesn't destroy your seats.

    A dog sits on the seat cover

    Promising review: "I have a golden retriever puppy who gets car sick so I wanted a seat cover that could easily be removed and cleaned. This is the one! We've been using this for about six months now — it has survived many puke-induced car rides without staining any part of my car. The material is thick and durable, and I have not had any issues with the straps or buckles. It fits my Jeep Grand Cherokee perfectly. The "luxury" diamond design is a nice touch, too." —Spartan

    Get it from Chewy for $26.99 (available in two sizes).

    11. Some Bottle Bright cleaning tablets that make cleaning your water bottles and coffee tumblers much easier. No more scrubbing only to find out that the gross smells and stains are STILL. THERE.

    These tablets are biodegradable, chlorine-free, and environmentally safe. Also, if you're the person who just "rinses out" their reusable water bottle once a month with, well, more water... I am sorry to have to say this, but your bottle is likely filled with unwanted bacteria and grime.

    Promising review: "At work, we have stainless-steel coffee pots with a plastic top that no one cleans and they are often left on for hours at a time. The bottoms got very gross and someone tried to clean them with hot water and soap, but not much happened. I bought these, added hot water and two tablets (since they are bigger than a water bottle) and let the pots sit over night. So much came off with no scrubbing! I then soaked again for about another hour with two more and almost all of the grime was gone. I did scrub just a tiny bit to get all the stains out with a brush I had and you can see the difference between the before and after! They are almost like new! I did this on two pots and we were all amazed by the results. Ordering more so that we can clean regularly since it’s so easy!" —Heather

    12. A migraine stick you'll be glad you have when that surprise headache shows up all like "HELLO! NICE TO MEET YOU. I AM HERE TO RUIN YOUR DAY!" Easily apply this to your forehead when you feel a headache coming on and get back to whatever you were doing before you were rudely interrupted.

    How it works: The formula is made up of peppermint, spearmint, coconut and lavender essential oils to cool and soothe the area, helping to take the edge off an incoming headache.

    Promising review: "After reading an article on BuzzFeed that touted this product, I bought one for my boyfriend who suffers from awful, frequent headaches. It WORKS. Not only does he swear by it, he has purchased them for his Mom and several friends. FANTASTIC." —SarahElizabeth

    13. A rapid egg cooker because your mornings are stressful enough without having to focus on not over- or under-cooking your eggs. This thing can make hard boiled, soft boiled, poached, and scrambled eggs in just minutes! It can even make an omelet if you wanna feel fancy.

    The egg cooker surrounded by eggs

    Promising review: "This thing is NO JOKE the easiest thing I've ever used in my life. Pretty sure it's idiot proof. And I'm an idiot in the kitchen. I love hard-boiled eggs, but I'm the kind of cooking-illiterate person who can't even boil water right. So I bought this puppy, read the directions carefully, got six eggs, and in 15 minutes, the buzzer went off and VOILA! Hard boiled eggs! I put them all in a bowl of ice water right after the buzzer went off, just for a minute or two (That was a tip in the instructions). That really made the shells come off easily. In one piece even! It was a joy to make these! They were perfectly cooked, nice and yellow in the centers, tasted awesome. I'm gonna make a bunch more and use them as quick snacks. This appliance is so great and cheap! I couldn't believe how well it worked. It's really small and all the pieces are plastic or metal, but it works like a charm, so who cares! A+++++ Highly recommended." —Emily

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in five colors).

    14. Some fridge shelf liners designed to keep groceries fresher for longer so when you grab some veggies out of the drawer, they aren't already wilting and going bad even though you swear you just bought them.

    The shelf liners being used with to keep peppers and lettuce fresh in the fridge

    Promising review: "Thanks for creating such a simple item that's much needed in the home. The paper towels are thanking you too. Before I found these, we were going through loads of paper towels in our crispers. This is durable and the patterns look great too." —Fayola

    Get three 12"x24" liners from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in four patterns and three sizes).

    15. Or a produce saver that keeps fruit and veggies fresh for up to two weeks, especially perfect for single people who can never find single people portions at the grocery store.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    The average American household ends up throwing away $2,200 worth of food each year, so they'll save you money, too.

    Promising review: "I've been using a set of two of these containers since March 2018 (that's basically two years) and STILL love them, because they actually do work and at this point have saved me from throwing countless strawberries, spinach leaves, bell peppers, nectarines, and cherries in the trash — instead, I've been able to enjoy basically every last bite, even when it's taken me 10+ days to finish something! Read my full FreshWorks produce saver review for more. They're completely top-rack dishwasher-safe (I run 'em through all the time). And although it's not surprising considering they're plastic containers, they show absolutely zero signs of age after the two years of regular use. (Note: don't put anything showing signs of mold in the containers, because in my experience it can make it grow faster.)" —Natalie Brown, BuzzFeed Staff

    Get it from Amazon for $12.35+ (available in eight sizes).

    16. An over-the-drain hair stopper you will thank yourself for buying when you no longer have to constantly remove the mountains of hair clogging your drain that make you wonder if you share a shower with Bigfoot.

    Split image of the reviewer holding the hair stopper in their hands and of the hair stopper surrounded by hair when placed over the drain

    Promising review: "I've been very impressed! It's tall enough to fit easily over my pop-up drain and (even without suction cups) the weighted top keeps it in place. I have medium-length hair and seem to shed almost as much as my cat, but the drain protector catches it all and is easily removed and tossed away. Best of all, the silicone doesn't hold onto mildew or mold. I have been able to spray and wipe away any grime with very little effort. It looks like this drain protector will last a very long time. This has been a very worthy purchase!"—Suneimi

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    17. A pack of four shower curtain adhesive clips that keep water from splashing out of the shower so your bathroom floor doesn't feel like stepping into a kiddie pool every single day.

    Step by step photos showing how to use the clips to secure the shower curtain

    It'll also prevent your bathmat and the area around your shower from getting moldy and mildewy by keeping the water where it belongs.

    Promising review: "I purchased a couple gadgets here on Amazon that claim to minimize or eliminate shower water seepage and have easy installs. These clips are the best gadget I purchased, and I plan to buy more to hold down the base of my shower curtain. I have them on both the outside and inside of the shower. They are installed on the left side of the shower, the side that we do not use to enter the shower. That way they just stay in place." —Kimber

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in a pack of four and eight).

    18. A personal password book because, if you're anything like me, your once-simple password situation has since devolved into a tangled web of chaos, and you know clicking that "forgot your password?" button is just gonna add another password to the list, making things even more confusing, but what choice do you have??? This simple journal will help you keep everything in one place, so you can avoid the whole "we're sending you a secure code" song and dance every time your computer logs you out of EVERYTHING.

    The logbook open to the first page

    Promising review: "When we have so many internet addresses and passwords to remember, it gets really hard — especially when you get older and have trouble remembering what silly password you gave something. And, we are supposed to change or update passwords from time to time, so this is a great tool to help us do that. It certainly makes more sense than scribbling on a random piece of paper on your desk and then misplacing it. The trick, however, is to not misplace the book! I HIGHLY recommend this!!" —Carole P

    Get it from Amazon for $6.44.

    19. A portable bug bite suction tool that literally sucks the venom out of your skin to help reduce itching and swelling from a mosquito, bee, or wasp sting. I'm never going anywhere without this thing again.


    The suction can be pretty strong so use caution and try a small amount of suction first and work your way up if necessary.

    Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. I woke up with a bug bite on my arm so I used this little tool (three times per the instructions) — immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing, but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" —Rebecca

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    20. A super comfy, memory foam chair cushion for anyone dealing with back pain or bad posture, especially if you are sitting most of the day.

    Promising review: "Works great, helps to relieve some pressure from sitting. This is a great memory foam cushion for office chairs or your couch. You really can feel the difference. This is thick, and feels like it will last for a really long time. I've been using mine for a couple of weeks and already feel a little better. The cover is removable for washing, and the stitching is done really well. I recommend this to anyone who has to sit for more than a few hours." —phillygirl

    Get it from Amazon for $23.75.

    21. A lipstick-sized portable charger so that next time your phone unexpectedly dies while you're out, you'll be prepared with this convenient device.

    Model slipping the charger into a bag

    This lil' guy can add over one charge to an iPhone 8 or at least 80% to the Galaxy S8 and other popular smartphones.

    Promising review: "I’m a frequent traveler and even when not traveling, I am often away from my home for 10+ hours and, of course, use my phone throughout the day, so I always have one of these with me! The size is perfect—easily fits in my purse or even the pocket of my jeans, so I can recharge my phone whenever I need to! I usually get about 1.5-2 full charges out of one. And since there are two, I can always have one charging at home and one with me! Might not be quite as powerful/long-lasting as others, but for the size and price, it’s great!" —Travel Books and Movies

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    22. A pair of lightweight and durable escape tracks you'll be so glad you have next time your car decides to get stuck in the snow, ice, mud, or sand.

    A car using the escape tracks in the snow

    These are great if you're someone who likes to take your car off the beaten path or just... lives in the Midwest.

    Promising review: "These traction pads are amazing! For anybody that's never used them, essentially you jam them against your drive tires in slick conditions or if you're stuck in sand, and your tires grip them and pull you right out! The bright orange makes them easy to see after digging them into the mud, and the knobs are durable enough to withstand a very large truck's beating. For the price, the quality, the durability, and the hundreds of uses, you can't go wrong with these. If I could give them 6 stars I would have!" —sean

    Get them from Amazon for $132.90 (available in four sizes and three colors).

    23. Some Mighty Handles so you can actually get all of your groceries safely inside in one trip instead of overestimating how much you can carry on your own and ending up with a... big mess., Amazon

    Promising review: "My husband is a huge fan of the World's Strongest Man competition, and (rather pathetically for a 35-year-old man) likes to pretend that he is doing a strongman event called the 'farmer's walk' when it comes time to take the groceries in from the car. In World's Strongest Man, they carry enormous iron weights for as great a distance as they can manage in 60 seconds. My husband tries to carry literally every bag at once into the house from the car, while providing a live commentary on his 'legendary' performance. I am SO lucky, right? Hands off ladies, he's taken. Anyhow, his stupid game usually results in every item we just bought at the store getting squished and smashed to pieces. I therefore bought this product in order to save my sanity... and it's great! He gets to make believe he is anything other than slightly below average strength after we visit Stop n' Shop, and my groceries don't get smashed to pieces. Highly recommend this product."—swtrbl555

    24. A flexible cable protector because there's nothing more annoying than noticing that your charging cable is already fraying even though you JUST bought it like two weeks ago. Think of how many replacement chargers you wouldn't have had to shell out for if you'd gotten these earlier.

    The cable protectors on a computer and phone charger

    Promising review: "I am always breaking my cables so I got these little protectors for all my wires, what a great bang for the buck. There are plenty in a package, it was enough for all my cables and I had some left over for the future."—Buzgal

    Get a pack of 24 from Amazon for $4.99.

    25. A pack of peel-and-stick cable clips so when you reach for your charger, it'll be right where you left it instead of tangled up with all of your other cords on the floor.

    Promising review: "It was always a pain to reach down the side of my bed to reach my chargers, not to mention the wad of cables I’d have to sift through just to charge my phone. I finally searched for a solution and came across these. They’re great! They’re really easy to stick on and they stay in place. I haven’t had an issue of them falling off. Whenever I need to charge a device they’re right next to me, easy to reach and untangled. I definitely recommend!" —Nelis Perez

    26. A windshield cover to save you from having to stand in the freezing cold, scraping layers of ice off of your windshield every time you have to leave the house. Then maybe, just maybe, you'll hate winter a little less.

    The cover, partially removed from a windshield of a car covered in snow, showing how the windshield is totally snow-free under the cover

    It wraps around your wheels so it won't come off or let snow underneath!

    Promising review: "This is the best thing I could have ever bought! I bought one for myself, my mom, and my sister. New England just got slammed with a Nor'easter, and let me tell you...this thing works! It only took about five minutes to put on my car, and like five seconds to get it off this morning. No snow or ice anywhere on the wiper well or windshield. I highly recommend this!" —Shelley

    Get it from Amazon for $26.95 (available in three sizes and two colors).

    27. A set of four packing cubes so you can fit way more into your suitcase than you ever dreamed without having to be an organizational wizard.

    Reviewer image of the packing cubes in a suitcase

    Promising review: "I recently bought these for myself and I cannot stress enough how much SPACE I SAVED by using them. I was able to pack, I kid you not, DOUBLE the amount of clothing for my trip. Should I have? Probably not. Did I take full advantage of it? Yes, I did. I truly feel like I won against life on this one!" —Jennifer Tonti, BuzzFeed Staff

    Get them from Amazon for $16.88 (available in 17 colors).

    29. A magnetic weekly meal planning pad so you don't get halfway through cooking only to realize you forgot to buy that one ingredient you can't really do without. Use this pad to plan out your meals for the week, and easily rip off a convenient shopping list so you don't end up in this pickle ever again.

    The planning pad partially filled out

    Promising review: "I love this meal planner and shopping list! In my house, it was constantly 'what do you want to eat,' 'what do we have,' blah blah, etc. Now, I can lay out the week's meals and get my shopping list prepared so I make sure I don't miss anything at the grocery store. The magnet on the back is strong and holds it to the fridge perfectly, even with the door opening and closing constantly. The perforation is good and doesn't stray off into the paper like some cheaper papers do. I will be buying again when my current one gets low." —Haley

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in twelve colors).

    30. A purse organizer in case your bag has become a black hole that requires organizing a search party just to find your wallet or keys.

    Promising review: "This thing is great! I have a large bag I use as a carry-on when I fly by plane. Unfortunately it has very few pockets and is just like a bottomless pit. This fit in perfectly. I was able to organize all my items quite well. They were easy to retrieve in flight and in the airport. I didn't use the zipper compartment at all, but did put that piece in to use it as a divider. It is well-made and sturdy. Be sure to measure your inner bag space first!" —Susan

    31. A set of bedsheet suspenders so when you wake up, your fitted sheets are still in place instead of slipping off the corners and getting all tangled up with your blankets. Waking up to a still perfectly made bed is truly *chef's kiss.*

    Split image of bedsheets coming off of the mattress without the suspenders and bedsheets staying on the mattress with the suspenders

    Promising review: "Say goodbye to rearranging your fitted sheet every morning! My boyfriend sleeps like he’s rolling down a hill so every morning I would wake up to the scratchy feel of my mattress cover because my soft silk fitted sheet was all over the place. Thanks to these bed bands, our sheets stay put no matter what. The only way for your fitted sheet to come off is if you manually remove these first. I wish I would have bought this so much sooner." —Khalysee

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in five colors and four pack sizes).

    32. A hot air brush that'll give you the volume and shine of a professional salon blowout faster and with much less hassle. Say goodbye to heat damage and spending forever fussing with straighteners and dryers once you have this thing.

    Promising review: "Admittedly, I personally use this hot air brush and I cannot stop yapping about it! I have long, thick hair with a 3B curl pattern, and it takes me almost two hours to straighten it all. Plus, I wasn't a fan of the heat damage left behind by my go-to straightener. I bought this brush and was super impressed with how quickly it dried and straightened my wet hair (40 minutes, but who's counting?). It left my hair feeling suuuuper soft and silky, and even gave it EXTRA volume and a bit of a curl at the end. My hair also looks healthier overall — no more dry, crispy-looking ends! Sometimes, I even use this brush in the morning on already-dry hair for a quick touch-up before I head out for the day." —Jasmin Suknanan, BuzzFeed Staff

    Another promising review: "I wasn’t too hopeful that this would work for me, but I’m pleasantly surprised! I have very thick, medium length hair. When left to its own devices, it’s not straight but not curly. Not even waves per se, in the cute way, but just big and messy looking. My usual routine is to let it air dry for a bit, blow-dry it, and either use a flat iron to make it straight, or a curling wand for loose curls. This newfangled device allows me to just blow it straight, no flat iron needed. Saves me about 15 minutes or so, and hey, that’s a big deal in the morning! It’s not hard to use whatsoever. I’m the type who cannot work a round brush with the blow-dryer, looking in the mirror either." —PJHBerry

    33. A wearable blanket so when you're finally all snuggled up and cozy, getting up to get a snack won't mean exiting your warm blanket and freezing your buns off! Plus, now you can work comfortably on your laptop without reluctantly removing your arms from under the blanket BECAUSE THIS BLANKET HAS SLEEVES.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this thing. It allows you to literally wrap yourself in a blanket, but still be able to use your hands, without your poor arm suffering in the cold breeze. I wear this while working from home, watching Netflix, and while taking naps. It's so comfy that there have been times I don't want to take it off when I have to run to the store — the only reason I do is because I don't want it to get dirty. I can't imagine one person that wouldn't be happy to receive this wonderful bundle of coziness." —Kayla Boyd, BuzzFeed Staff

    34. Some adorable cat paw chair socks to keep your furniture from scratching up your floors so that when it comes time to move out, your landlord can't find an excuse to not return your security deposit.


    Promising review: "LOVE LOVE these!!! Not only are they cute and adorable, but also very functional. I bought these because of my frustration with other products I've tried that left marks on my hardwood floors. My chair legs are thick and I was worried they might not fit, but they stretched nicely and did not slip or slide off. I have tried several other options from rubber tips to felt pads and all of them fall or slide off after a while. We use our chairs every day, multiple times a day and they have not worn out. They very obviously prevent scratches. They look like the chairs have gotten socks to keep their legs warm with these cat paws. Excellent design and manufacture with a nice dose of whimsy. I will definitely buy more of these just to have as back up." —Zhangsu

    35. And a nonstick, food-safe baking mat so you'll never have to go through the struggle of scraping burnt food and other hard-to-remove grime from your baking pans ever again, hooray!,

    Promising review: "These baking mats are absolutely fantastic. The quality is superb, and SUCH a good price. I use them for just about everything I put in the oven. From oven pizzas, cookies, you name it! I also love that besides food sliding easily off the non stick surface, they help protect all my baking sheets and such. It’s also super handy to just throw them in the top shelf of the dishwasher or even just wipe clean. Also, an easy tip for storing these, you can cut off about one-third of an empty paper towel roll to use as a holder, and just roll up the mats and slip inside the roll/ring for easy storage of the mats in a drawer. I highly recommend these! Update: I’ve had these mats and we use them almost daily for almost a year now. They still look brand new and I have had no problems with staining, melting, or the mats becoming worn. When using them, I cook most items at 375 degrees but have used them at up to 425 degrees several times with no issues so far. For clean up, I generally drape them over my cups in the top rack of the dishwasher and then when dry, roll them up and slip a napkin ring or rings cut from an empty paper towel roll so they fit easily into a drawer. These things are fantastic and have paid for themselves many times over in the superior non-stick surface, ease of clean up, and the cost of parchment paper and/or aluminum foil I used prior to discovering these." —Jezzhani
