    38 Kitchen And Food Products On Amazon Our Readers Are Loving In 2018

    Organizing products, a wildly popular hot honey, reusable bags, and tons more that you're going to want for yourself!

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A Lazy Susan turntable that'll organize cluttered cabinets and countertops so you can easily find what you're looking for., Sherry D. Johnson /

    Promising review: "I put one of these 18 inch turntables in the corner of every other shelf of my new pantry. I arranged the shelves in such a way that I had easy access to them and that tall items could be placed on them. They are super sturdy and the non-slip rubbery surface is such a plus. The lip on the edges is great, too! I would expect a turntable of this quality to be much more expensive (but happy they were so reasonably priced!). Kudos to Amazon for their speedy service, too! I ordered two 10 inch turntables just like these for short bottled items on my narrow shelves, too." β€”Sherry D. Johnson

    Price: $7.99+ (available in three sizes and colors)

    2. A mini griddle you can use to quickly whip up eggs, pancakes, and other goodies. Plus, its single-serve size means cleaning up will be a breeze.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this little gem. The portion size is perfect for one (me). Just be cooks stir-fry-size meats quickly and perfectly. It makes a grilled cheese on a small bun and a perfect egg. Clean up is so easy and quick. I love not messing up a pan and the stove. I like to eat, but for me, cooking for one is not especially fun. This is almost fun and so easy. All I really use now is my Dash, microwave, and coffee pot. Kitchen stays immaculate!" β€”Jaiyen

    Price: $14.99+ or as an add-on item for $9.99 (available in seven colors)

    3. An adjustable measuring cup with two measurements (cups and ounces) so you can rid your drawers of all those random plastic sets and save some darn room.

    These are also super helpful when it comes to measuring out stickier substances as this reviewer mentions:

    Promising review: "Many power-bar recipes I make frequently call for nut butter or agave syrup, both sticky, gluey substances. Tired of messing up measuring cups and spatulas to get the sticky stuff in, and then back out, of the cups, I thought I'd give this a try. Wonderful! Yes, you need a spatula to get the nut butter or sticky stuff into the measuring cup, but then you turn the outside, and the material spirals into your mixing bowl. Easy to use, your hands stay clean. When you're done, you can soak it or toss it into the dishwasher and let the machinery do the dirty work. Well-designed and easy to use." β€”QuinnCreative

    Price: $11.99+ (available in two sizes)

    4. A simple splatter screen because nobody actually wants to ruin their white shirt or dirty their freshly-cleaned stovetop with tomato sauce.

    Promising review: "Well designed this stainless splatter guard works wonders at keeping the splattering of my cooking food exactly where the pan! My mom is constantly frustrated when I fry food on my stove as it gets EVERYWHERE! Won't she be pleased to see that's no longer the case as I have it under control with my stainless splatter guard. It's sturdy, well made, and large enough to fit my favorite pan. Perfect for everything from bacon to my favorite Italian sausages!" β€”K. Crowson

    Price: $11.95

    5. A two-tier organizer for kitchen counters (or bathrooms!) that will help free up some important space., massage08 /

    Promising review: "This has been an instant solution to finding a bit more counter space for those small things we have to leave out. We have under counter lighting in our small apartment. One corner that is NOT lit next to the refrigerator is where we store all the bits and pieces to pack for the dog: dry food containers, meds, storage bags, and so on. By tucking this rack into the corner, we've made the best use possible of a dark corner, leaving lighted areas of the counter for meal preparation and so on. As it is, I'm happy." β€”Dewey Decimal Fan

    Price: $23.19 (available in two shapes)

    6. A collapsible, microwave popcorn popper for taking movie nights to an entirely new level because you have the freedom to customize the kernels with as much butter, oil, and seasonings as your heart wants.

    Promising review: "I am a full-time RV'r. I do not have room for a lot of extra gadgets, so I have to really love and find value in any item I decide to purchase and keep. Popping my own popcorn saves me money and it's so much healthier than bagged microwave popcorn at the store! This popper cleans up easily, folds compactly down, is lightweight and works like a charm! Couldn't ask for anything more! You can pop without any added oil, but I just love the added flavor a tsp., or so! The price is incredible too! I've paid 2x this price for microwave popcorn bowls that didn't work half as well." β€”NanaD

    Price: $12.97+ (available in four colors)

    7. And! A bag of non-GMO red popcorn to satisfy any popcorn aficionado who walks through your door.

    Promising review: "Before this popcorn, I did not really believe that popcorn could taste differently. I just thought it is all the same and it depends on the butter and seasoning. After the first batch my whole entire family rejoiced β€” this was the first time we devoured popcorn without wanting anything on top of it because it was that good. You can’t describe how quality tastes, but with this popcorn you can definitely taste the freshness and the quality popcorn was meant to be as a snack." β€”Marina Garcia

    Price: $5.41+ (available in three sizes)

    8. A dishwasher magnet you can switch back and forth to indicate if the dishes are clean or dirty β€” sooo now you don't have to wonder if you're eating off a dirty plate!

    MAvila424 /

    Promising review: "We have kept saying that we needed a magnet every time that my husband would unload dirty dishes and put them away in the cupboards!! This solves so much frustration! It has a nice magnet backing for use on dishwashers with stainless fronts, and little sticky circles to use on a plastic front. You don't have to pick the magnet off to change the sign β€” the little door on the magnet easily slides from left to right, showing either the 'clean' or the 'dirty' sign. I thought at first that this magnet was too large, but I've decided that it's just right. We like seeing it clearly. It doesn't look tacky. Just what we needed!" β€”Never Too Old To Learn

    Price: $12.94 (available in three colors)

    9. A roll-up drying rack because countertop space is crucial real estate that *cannot* and *should not* be taken over by tons of dishes.

    Promising review: "The drying rack has made my life so much easier in my kitchen. It's like having an extra counter top or space. I don't have to dry my dishes on the counter on a towel I can just lay them on the drying rack and be done. What is also great about it is that I also use it as a cooling rack for my bread. I love it." β€”Bonnie3011

    Price: $23.98

    10. An expandable shelf that'll let you *safely* stack your dishes so you don't have to pull an arm muscle trying to reach that one plate at the bottom. Plus, it'll give you so much more cabinet space!, Amazon Fan /

    Promising review: "These expandable shelves are the bomb. They are a great size (measure your cabinets carefully if using inside). They are extremely sturdy and the 'expandable' feature is so handy. I have four of these; three are used for dishes and one in my pantry. This shelf doubles the storage area for canned goods and is a great addition to any cabinet. I am a Fiestaware collector and I have no concern that these sturdy shelves will hold my heavy dishes. If you need to expand your storage...get these. You won't be sorry." β€”Amazon Fan

    Price: $19.99

    11. A pack of reusable silicone baking cups you can throw into the dishwasher after use. These will save you money in the long run and help reduce trash; DOUBLE WIN.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about silicone baking molds for several years, but after a few of my friends had good experiences, I decided to try some out. I've used these ones for several different muffin recipes. The first time, I coated them in oil, and subsequent uses I skipped this step without seeing much if any difference β€”Β the molds peel cleanly from the baked goods, are quick and easy to wash, and stack nicely in the cupboard. I haven't seen any change in shape or discoloration. So happy β€” I won't be buying any more paper liners! Kids are happy, too. They love the bright colors." β€”MusicalMama

    Price: $5.99+ (available in two pack sizes)

    12. A multipurpose food dicer with seven interchangeable blades that makes chopping, slicing, and grating easy peasy lemon squeezy β€” no really, this thing also has a juicer attachment!

    Promising review: "I have a mandolin slicer, and love it. The only problem was, well, while it did its job, this also did that same job, and the job of my slicer/chopper, and a juicer. And this is a compact, all-in-one package that doesn't take up all the real estate like the separates take up. This shreds cheese, makes French fries, slices cucumbers, and juices my oranges. Using this all-in-one makes buying in bulk more effective, is cheaper, and then creates nicer looking meals. This is sharp, but safe as long as you use it properly." β€”James Robert Ratay, Jr.

    Price: $27.99

    13. A highly-rated spoonula to assist with a variety of cooking needs like scrambling eggs without scratching your pans or scraping out that last bit of brownie batter (because every last drop counts!).

    Promising review: "Have you, like me, been looking unsuccessfully in kitchen supply stores for a silicone spatula that is not wimpy with an edge that collapses and lays flat under pressure? If so, this tool is for you. This spatula is exactly what I was looking for: silicone with a stiff edge that can scrape up the food to deglaze the skillet or pan; soft enough to cleanly scrape the corner of a mixing bowl of cake batter or frosting; sturdy handle without ridges or inserts that irritate the fingers when constantly stirring (e.g. making roux or risotto); does not pick up color or smell from food; and, has a spoon shape to maximize stirring, blending and folding. I cannot think of a single complaint about this tool. This spatula/spoon does everything so well, it deserves a five-star rating." β€”S. Parris

    Price: $8.24 (available in three colors)

    14. A set of nesting food containers that'll keep your leftovers fresh and your cabinets free of those random plastic lids.

    Promising review: "Do you get excited over simple things? These containers have well-made, color coded tops with matching bottoms, and are a great organizational set. That messy cabinet with all of the unruly plastic containers is a thing of my past. I hated fumbling with tops and bottoms and the look of the 'mess' it created. I am in love with this set and I am sure I will be buying more." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $21.70+ (available in five set sizes)

    15. A family cookbook for keeping your best passed-down traditions in one place. This book comes with templates for over 80 recipes and places to add personalized photos.

    Promising review: "Gave this to my lovely wife for her birthday. She had been looking for a cookbook to write down recipes she loved or invented. The quality of this book and slipcover are such that someday our children or grandchildren will inherit the family recipes. Neat layout, with options that other books don't have." β€”Bladesmith

    Price: $26.19+ (available in two colors and four other styles)

    16. A fume-free oven cleaner because you shouldn't have to burn your nose and eyeballs with strong cleaners just to get your oven looking brand new again.

    Promising review: "I'm a little embarrassed to write this review; it's been ~6 years since my last oven cleaning... After seeing the results, I couldn't help but spread the word. Sure, it took some beer, a little John Mayer, and a lot of elbow grease, but I got the job done, thanks to this handy little product. It did require two treatments; however, given the circumstances, this product accomplished quite a feat in just an hour. The attached pictures speak for themselves." β€”William Fredericks

    Price: $5.97

    17. A meal planning pad to make trips to the grocery store so much easier. You'll also waste less food since you're only buying what you know you need.

    Promising review: "This meal planning pad is so helpful! I recently sustained an injury that keeps me from working out, and this helps me keep my nutrition on track while I can't exercise. And planning meals is helping keep money in my pocket as well. A nice little investment." β€”persephone

    Price: $9.95

    18. A pack of reusable and compostable (!!!) beeswax wraps that'll save you some change down the road and let your conscious rest knowing your reducing plastic consumption.

    If you're looking for other ways to reduce plastic use or wondering how else you can get involved with this important mission, *please* check out Break Free From Plastic.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about this product but I'm trying to reduce my use of plastic wrap. I was wrong and I love this! Very, very easy to clean. So far I have used it to cover a plate with pizza on it and a red onion. Your warm hands mold it perfectly. I purchased a set for myself and my daughter. She loves them also!" β€”yarnqueenmm

    Price: $18+ (available in three prints)

    19. A cabinet organizer with a handy drawer so you can finally declutter that disastrous mess under the sink, and find what you need without having to dump everything on the ground., SDH /

    Promising review: "This is a great option for under sink organization. I recently ordered a couple of these to help a family member get the jumble under their sink better organized. They were thrilled with the transformation. Unfortunately I didn't take any 'before' pictures but the after ones are enough to show how helpful these baskets are. The pull out tray is a nice touch." β€”SDH

    Price: $22.87+ (available in two colors)

    20. A knife sharpener because owning dull knives is totally ~pointless~.

    Promising review: "This sharpener is AWESOME. I had an older Henckel knife that had been neglected and was in pretty rough shape, and this sharpener brought it back from the dead. It works great on serrated knives too. Excellent value, I am really glad I decided on this particular one, as I went back and forth on it several times. I highly recommend this for all your sharpening needs!" β€”Dave Becker

    Price: $14.95

    21. A wine pourer for aerating and decanting your wine, while ensuring it doesn't splash all over the place when you're a few glasses deep., Amazon Customer /

    Promising review: "The Vintorio Aerator produces a tremendous difference in the taste of my wine. I conducted a side-by-side comparison and wine poured through the Vintorio had more body and flavor. Also, their customer service is superb. I accidentally damaged the stem on my Vintorio and, upon emailing them, the company's CEO replied by stating that he would send me an entire replacement unit at no charge. I highly recommend the Vintorio Aerator to wine connoisseurs and casual drinkers." β€”JetBlue726

    Price: $14.50+ (available in two colors)

    22. A four-pack of stainless steel drinking straws AND a cleaning brush because it's 2018 and plastic ones are murdering our planet.

    Psst, the tumbler is not included.

    Promising review: "I had been looking into getting some steel straws for a while now. I've been trying to move away from using so much plastic so I figured that this would be a great option because I love drinking out of straws. I do enjoy the fact that they give you four straws, as well as a brush to clean them properly; this gives me the opportunity to have them in rotation if one is dirty because I have three others to use. I have been using this product in conjunction with my stainless steel Rambler β€” they make the perfect combination and ensure my drink stays cold. I would recommend these if you are looking into getting an alternative to using plastic straws." β€”carmel_laddy21

    Price: $9.85

    23. AND! A set of reusable mesh bags to reduce plastic-use β€” and to save you time because those thin produce bags are impossible to find anyway.

    Promising review: "I love this product so much that it makes me excited to go grocery shopping, which everyone knows is a rarity. I will do anything to avoid using those horrendous plastic, environment-destroying bags at the grocery store and I found the perfect solution! These bags are well made, color-coded, and the mesh material makes it light enough that they don't add weight to your items during checkout. The drawstrings are perfect if the checkout clerk needs to open them quickly for the code. I also use them to store my veggies in the fridge and you can pop them in the washer for easy cleaning. Literally, these are the best thing ever and even better β€” NO MORE PLASTIC BAGS." β€”asinha

    Price: $11.34+ (available in two sizes)

    24. A grilling spice gift set with five special seasonings you can use on whatever your heart desires β€” like, oh idk, southwest tacos!!!

    Honestly gift this to YOURSELF.

    Promising review: "I was so impressed when I used these for the first time. Every seasoning has an awesome, unique flavor!! I'm already addicted to grill master and citrus pepper, and I've been using them on EVERYTHING since I first opened them. Super delicious and really versatile β€” just don't hesitate on this one!" β€”Carly D

    Price: $24.99+ (available in three other spice sets)

    25. A variety pack of chickpea pasta that'll transform how you think of noodles! These are high in protein and low in carbs (when compared to traditional pasta), and still manage to taste delicious.

    Promising review: "I've tried a lot of the alternatives to pasta and this by far the best! I love the different varieties there are β€” it really does replace regular pasta for me. Unlike some of the other pasta alternatives I've tried, Banza holds up well in the fridge in case you make more than you meant to or are trying to keep it for leftovers. I'm not gluten-free like some of the other reviewers, but I wanted to try it because it has the half the carbs and double the protein which is amazing. I don't think I'll go back to regular pasta after's amazing!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $22.49 (for six boxes)

    26. A packet of produce-saving sheets you can stick in berry cartons, fridge drawers, or fruit bowls to keep your food fresher for longer.

    These sheets are naturally made and can keep fruits and veggies fresh up to two times longer!

    Promising review: "It works exactly as described and is great with saving berries, tomatoes, vegetables etc. I have reused the sheets and cut them to size for smaller berry containers. We were so impressed that the blueberries were still rolling around the container after several days." β€”mary

    Price: $9.76 (also available in sheets for bread)

    27. A simple caddy for organizing your dish-cleaning essentials...and for keeping sponges out of your germ-ridden sink.

    Sinks are filthy places, people! Don't leave your sponges just chillin' in there. And since sponges themselves also get filthy, this caddy can be taken apart and tossed in the dishwasher for a good cleaning.

    Promising review: "Nice caddy. It's small enough to sit on the back of our sink on counter. I purchase the small bottle of dawn and refill it when needed. It fits perfect in the compartment without getting stuck. I also purchased hand soap to stick in the square bar area. Easy to clean and catches all the water from sponge or dishcloth." β€”Aces5

    Price: $11.08+ (available in two sizes and colors)

    28. An adorable set of kid-safe knives that can actually cut food (but not skin!) so their cute lil' hands are protected from the evils of sharp blades.

    And now they can help you cook delicious meals, and learn how to make their own food. One day, they can then pass those recipes down to their kids. What a touching thought. 😭

    Promising review: "My 2-year-old was desperate to join me in the kitchen and I wanted to be sure she was safe. These knives come in three sizes, are not sharp to the touch but easily cut through most fruits and vegetables! For denser foods like carrots she needed a bit of assistance, but she was quickly chopping all of the asparagus for dinner!!! We just got these so I can't speak to durability, but for the price these seem like a great value for my little chef!" β€”Nicholas and Zarya Fogelson

    Price: $8.95 (for a pack of three)

    29. A salad kit container because you deserve more for lunch than soggy lettuce., Jen Hart /

    Promising review: "The size doesn't SEEM big, but when you actually load it up, it's perfect and generous! There's room for so many ingredients in the top. I have tomatoes in the small section, two vegetables in the large, but there's too for a third or for croutons, then plenty of room for protein in the largest section--notice there's room for a whole egg not it in half. It also includes a small container for dressing which can easily go loose in the lower section for salad or be packed to fit perfectly in the sections above." β€”Jen Hart

    Price: $8.19

    30. An attachable pull-out bin to transform your refrigerator from drab (and very cluttered) to fab (and organized).

    Promising review: "I normally don’t write reviews but this product is awesome. My husband and I just moved into an apartment that had a fridge with no drawers at all! I couldn’t even look inside the refrigerator because it was so unorganized! These seem very sturdy and like they will last a long time. The basket is a sturdy plastic. I am using the 'large' size to hold pop and the extra large to be the meat and cheese drawer. If my fridge was bigger I would definitely buy more." β€”Kindle Customer

    Price: $17.99

    31. A sleek spice rack with empty bottles and labels so you can choose what spices to fill them with β€” which basically means you don't have to spend the $$$ on ones you'll never use!

    Some reviewers (like the one on the right!) got creative and ordered chalkboard stickers to add a little custom flair to their jars.

    Promising review: "My husband loves to cook and asked me if I could buy him some spices. I figured a spice rack would be convenient but the ones already filled with spices are a waste since we don't use most of it. I didn't use the stickers that come with it. I bought the Firefly Chalkboard Labels (Circle - 2-inch diameter) instead and wrote the names myself. I'm glad I did because the spices we have are not included on the stickers." β€”LuvLyGrl

    Price: $24.97

    32. A cookbook you'll never want to part with considering you only need FIVE ingredients to make all the tasty recipes in here.

    Promising review: "I had pre-ordered mine and it just arrived today! With a little one at home, these fast, 5-ingredient recipes are PERFECT and I already have most of the ingredients in my pantry and refrigerator. In fact, I was able to whip up the egg muffins immediately. Next up is the turkey bolognese! I like the advice on which items freeze the best and how to re-heat them at mealtime. What a fun surprise to get in the mail today." β€”Caroline

    Price: $11.69 (also available for Kindle Unlimited)

    33. AND! This cookbook that'll teach you all the basic skills you need for cooking from fundamental techniques to delicious recipes.

    It's only me /,

    Promising review: "A year and a half after getting this cookbook, it's starting to fall apart, as you can see from my photo. Even though the binding isn't meant to last forever, I'm giving it five stars because it has really helped me learn to cook. The recipes are great. There are a lot of the fairly simple yet delicious recipes that I think are necessary to learn before you move on to fancier stuff. I'm not a super-skilled chef yet, but this book has helped me pick up some basic cooking techniques, and get more comfortable in the kitchen." β€”It's only me

    Price: $20.49 (also available for Kindle)

    34. A caddy with lil' suction cups that stick onto the side of your sink so your sponges and brushes can *actually* dry.

    Promising review: "I originally bought this sponge holder four years ago and it has been great. I wanted something to keep the sponge from sitting in it's own puddle of dirty water AND to keep it out of the way when I didn't need it and handy when I did. I have zero complaints about this sponge holder! I love that I can throw it in the dishwasher when it needs a clean. Haven't ever had issues with the suction cups until now, after four years of use and they just don't want to suction any more. I'm not upset β€”Β $7 for four years is a good deal to me and I'm happy to purchase another!" β€”ERH

    Price: $6.50+ (available in seven colors)

    35. A "hand of the king" Game of Thrones bottle opener so you can crack open a beer and anxiously wait for the final season to come out.

    Promising review: "My husband and I are GOT super fans! I bought this for him as a stocking stuffer this year and it was a huge hit. It's a great conversation piece when we're hosting friends and works great too." β€”Sarah

    Price: $16.99

    36. A stylish, stainless steel travel mug for on-the-go mornings. It's vacuum-insulated so it'll keep your beverages hot for up to five hours, or cold for 10 hours.

    Promising review: "I love these mugs so much I've bought two of them. They keep hot drinks very hot for several hours (in fact, it's easy to burn yourself if you're expecting your drink to have cooled down at all). The colors are beautiful (I have the peach and navy ones), and I always get compliments when I use them. The only complaint I have is that if you're holding it by the handle, you have to do so in your left hand because of the way the lid screws on. That's only a minor inconvenience, and I love it so much that I still give it five stars." β€”Dkx

    Price: $14.78+ (available in four colors)

    37. A miracle-working food container that'll keep your produce fresh for way longer than traditional methods β€” no really, my coworker took these photos and swears by these things!

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    Here's what she had to say:

    "On March 5th, I put half of my fresh strawberries in the medium-sized container and left the other half in the clamshell container they came in from the store. And here they are 10 days later, on March 15th!!! The berry I left in the original container's dehydrated and blemished, with wrinkled, crunchy leaves. (I'm not eating the leaves, but still). But the produce-saver strawb's as fresh as it was on day one! Not that I wouldn't eat the dehydrated one, if that was my only option, but given the choice? I'll take a fresh strawberry every day!" β€”Natalie Brown

    Read Natalie's full review.

    Price: $5.85

    38. And lastly, a bottle of wildly popular hot honey for adding a sweet and spicy flavor to any meal! Put it on pizza, burgers, ice cream β€” whatever you want, the world is your oyster (maybe those too???)!

    Promising review: "This is now a staple for my kitchen. How I cooked without it before, I'll never know. It makes the best vinaigrette ever, quick-pan sauces for pork, and an unexpected zip in dozens of dishes. Does it come in gallons? I have given it as hostess gifts several times and everyone gets hooked." β€”Martha Ronemus

    Price: $10.95+ (available in eight sizes)
