    21 Products That Are Just Really Good At Their Jobs

    These products work so hard, they all deserve a promotion.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A set of storage containers for extending the life of fruits and veggies so you actually get a chance to finish everything in the fridge before it goes bad. Yup, it's basically a miracle.

    2. A do-it-all Instant Pot so you can consolidate several appliances into one and cook dinner in 15 minutes (instead of having to order takeout).


    This handy kitchen gadget has seven functions: rice cooker, pressure cooker, slow cooker, steamer, sauté, yogurt maker, and warmer! Check out our review of the Instant Pot!

    Get it from Amazon for Canada $79.97 (available in four sizes).

    3. A TubShroom that's the fierce drain guardian your bathroom deserves — it'll catch every strand of hair without blocking the water flow. No more clogged pipes, no more standing in a puddle of soapy water.

    Sarah Aspler / BuzzFeed

    I recently bought one of these and I can't believe I've waited all these years! I used to have a traditional strainer that would block the water flow as soon as a few hairs got caught in it (and I would have to fish out a clump of hair every five minutes or so). No more! This gadget catches all the hairs (so you don't end up with a clogged drain) and still allows the water to go down. I literally cannot stop talking about it.

    Sarah, an editor at BuzzFeed, also tried and loved the TubShroom; read her full review here!

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $12.99 (available in five colours).

    4. A pet hair–removing roller for quickly restoring your couch to its original colour (because right now, it's the same colour as your furry friend) before the guests arrive.

    This roller doesn't use adhesive sheets — it has a special lint-trapping surface that can be reused over and over again!

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $33.95.

    5. A drill brush attachment so you can give the dirty grout a deep clean using as little elbow grease as possible. Let your power tools do all the hard work for you!

    Get the brushes from Amazon Canada for $14.95 (available in four colours).

    6. A cold brew maker so you can make delicious, cafe-quality iced joe at home instead of spending $$$ at a coffee shop. It also has an airtight seal for keeping your drink fresh for days.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Just add coarse-ground coffee into the mesh filter, pour water into the pitcher, screw the lid on (with the filter attached and submerged in the water), let it brew for 12–24 hours, and serve. You can pour it straight over ice cubes, or cut it with water or milk. Read our review of the Tayeka cold brew maker!

    7. A John Frieda hot air brush to help you achieve a perfect 'do with minimal effort, even if you consider yourself a hair novice. It's pretty much the personal hairstylist you've always wished for.

    Amazon / Via

    Read our review of the John Frieda hot air brush!

    Maitland, a staff writer at BuzzFeed, wrote this about the hot air brush: "You get better results than with a flat iron, because you're lifting and brushing out the hair rather than just pressing it flat. And the results last for days — sometimes I'll wear it straight, sometimes I'll toss a few tapered-curling-iron waves in — but the blowout lasts until my next wash (so, like a whole week)."

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $41.32.

    8. A handheld milk frother that probably attended barista school because it'll help you whip up a cappuccino that looks and tastes incredibly ~profesh~.
