    Promising review: "When I opened the box, we saw hundreds of possibilities and we're especially thrilled that they stand alone. So far we've microwaved portions of leftover mac & cheese, casseroles, veggies, etc. They're perfect for breakfast sandwiches, and substituting triangular waffle sections for rolls. Tuna salad sandwiches are no longer messy. The grandkids had contests for snacking ideas. The flexible silicone holds finger foods like chicken tenders or fries without burning hands. They're filling them with dips for chips, pretzels, fries, apples, etc. Need more!" —Deborah

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    I just got one of these snazzy kitchen gadgets, and now every time I use it I think to myself, "How was I living life before this thing?!" It finely grinds salt down to that nice flaky texture, and then easy pops out the pod if I want to use pepper. I even got a different type of pod ideal for more oily spices (think mustard or flax seed). Now I am looking for reasons to use this thing... Salt on cake???

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (comes with grinder and three interchangeable pods).

    7. Light saber chopsticks so you always (always!!) have the force with you, even when you're eating dinner.

    Promising review: "Our kids each received a set in their stockings this Christmas and they all LOVED them. They are bright and work well. Yes the “handle” of the light saber is just a sticker so you have to be careful when washing, but still overall a great purchase!!!" —UllaBee

    This gift set includes a 40-oz teapot, infuser, and two blooming teas.

    Promising review: "So beautiful! I didn't expect to be so giddy after opening this teapot, it definitely brings joy. I was skeptical about boiling on my coil electric stovetop — it's glass, so of course I was. But due to the coating/treatment it seems to be safe! (I've boiled in it twice; I still keep the kids away from the kitchen while boiling, though.) All in all a great purchase! Makes me happy and will be great for my daughter's tea party birthday!" —Shelby Sorrells

    Get it from Amazon for $24.97.

    Promising review: "I've never used brow soap before so I can't really compare it to any other brands, but it does the job well and really allowed my eyebrows to hold a nice shape.

    Promising review: "I wanted to wait to review these nail wraps as they just kept going! I bought these thinking I would be happy if they lasted the weekend... I finally removed them last night after 26 days! I followed the application instructions (swipe nail with nail polish remover beforehand), and finished with a top coat, making sure to cap the tip of the nail too. When wearing these nails, I bathed, I swam, and they still lasted! One set will be enough for two applications for short nails. I would definitely purchase these again!" —Charlotte Wilkinson

    Promising review: "Don't let the price scare you. This pan is very good quality and even being the poor baker that I am, I have had great success every time I've used it. I made skullzones (calzones in the shape of skulls) and various beer breads. The definition of the skulls on the baked product is very impressive. Just a quick rinse with hot soapy water and it's clean. No sticking whatsoever. I am definitely a fan of Nordic Ware now." —ShopperBee

    19. A waffle iron with a built-in overflow channel to catch any oozing batter and make for a mess-free breakfast. What's better than that AND waffles?!

    Promising review: "I love waffles but there’s so much more you can use a waffle iron for. I’ve made paninis, quesadillas, grilled cheese, cake, brownies, fritters. The best is cinnamon rolls. You can cook them in half the time and the indentations from the iron keep the icing from falling onto the plate. I use mine multiple times a week." —aestainback

    20. A car visor extender so you can freakin' see the road when ~golden hour~ makes it impossible. It blocks up to 99.9% of UVA and UVB rays, reduces glare, dims brightness — and your eyeballs are about to be so happy.

    Promising review: "This is the visor I have been searching for! I have a small car, and its visor did little to help me driving into the sun, both going to and coming from work. This is a game changer! It’s easy to install, and easy to flip into place." —Fran

    Get it from The Grommet for $29.95.

    21. A microwave bacon cooker so you can indulge your bacon cravings without turning on the stove, frying bacon, turning the bacon, de-greasing the bacon, soaking the pan, etc., etc., etc.

    Promising review: "This is the best little gadget I have tried in a long time. I lay a paper towel on top and fold to drape over the edges to catch the splatters, program for one minute per slice of bacon, and that is it. If you have a full rack, 12 slices, you will take the rack out, remove the ones that are done, put back in, cook for additional one minutes until all are to your satisfaction. You can put the gadget into the dishwasher or wash in good soapy water and have it ready for the next use." —G. Carver

    The actual stand is universal, so it will hold dryers of all sizes and weights.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this hair dryer holder. It used to take me 15 to 20 minutes to dry my hair in the morning. Now it takes me eight because I don't have to put my arms down to rest them anymore. I placed it high on my bathroom wall and tilted the arm down because I wanted to straighten my wavy hair. My hair was sleek and straight because I brushed it while drying, which was so much easier to do without holding the dryer. I'll tell all my friends about this!" —Jon Wagner

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

    24. Horizontal prism glasses to let you do your favorites (read, Netflix binge) and your not-so-favorites (work from home...) all while laying completely horizontal. Absolute gold if you ask me.


    Promising review: "These are great. A few years ago I bought a pair from a different company, and they were very heavy and hurt to wear. These glasses are MUCH lighter weight and don't smash my nose when I try to sit up. 5 starts. They block all lights behind you when wearing these; the light reflects into the glasses." —customer

    Promising review: "Cooking at home, I always tend to make a big mess on the counters and use a bunch of plates and bowls. This set allowed me to consolidate and organize everything. So helpful. Love the save of space and the containers are great. The other ones I've seen on Amazon doesn't have leak proof containers or some didn't even have lids. After researching the other choices, I had to go with this one. Solid construction and practical containers. Product is as described." —Hub Ulrich

    Get it from Amazon for $69.92.

    27. Cute decals you can apply on the inside of a cabinet door for a measuring cup storage system that takes up practically zero space. This decal set even includes a measurement conversion table, so a quick open of the cabinet will tell you exactly how many cups are in a pint. PHEW.

    Promising review: "Loved it so much, I bought a second one! We have four children, and breakfast is a huge part of our day but sleep is precious. I use one dispenser for pancakes, and another for eggs prepared the night before to be scrambled or turned into omelets. Mealtime is so much more efficient, and cleaning up is easy. The portion control is great. They are very durable as well, they've been dropped and survived intact!" —Tacuma Clemons

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    29. A set of science beaker shot glasses if your idea of an experiment consists of taste-testing different tequilas to determine the most expensive one. Best of luck.
