    1. A set of Rubbermaid glass storage containers to keep all your leftovers fresh, regardless of if you eat them the next day or in the next hour. And since they're glass, they're also odor and stain-resistant.


    Promising review: "We are loving these new Rubbermaid food storage containers! The glass one feels luxe and is super heavy duty β€” it can even go in the oven sans lid! We love how the lids are interchangeable and there is a satisfying audible sealing sound. The handles that secure and release the lid are awesome. Best of all...NO STAINING! These babies have held pasta sauce and curries and they clean up clear and bright. Love this product! " β€”WalmartCustomer

    Price: $24.99 for a set of four

    2. A Pioneer Woman citrus juicer, because freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice adds that extra zest to water, guacamole, or a homemade cocktail.

    white hand citrus juicer with floral detail

    Promising review: "When a recipe calls for any type of citrus juice, I really prefer using fresh fruit to get that juice. This Pioneer Woman handheld citrus press not only coordinates well with my other kitchen pieces from the same brand, but does a great job squeezing out every drop of juice. It works great and even captures the seeds, so they do not get into your juice." β€”ccsakura

    Price: $7.97

    3. A KitchenAid multifunction can opener that not only will easily open your canned goods, but also help you pop open bottles.

    Promising review: "I got so sick of gimmicky can openers and paying premiums for electric ones that don't last. Sometimes a good, sturdy, basic tool is all you need. This is a comfortable, easy to use, and reliable can opener!" β€”Kewlzter

    Price: $13.49+ (available in two colors)

    4. A steel mesh organizer so you don't have to deal with a jumbled mess of silverware every time you open your drawers.

    three-tiered white can organizer with cans on the shelves, in a cabinet

    Promising review: "Pleased with quality and price! It is very nice to have this can organizer in the pantry. I could also use it out of the way on a countertop because it truly looks neat. The white color frame goes well with most pantries and/or kitchens. It holds 27 15 oz. cans, with two spare inches in the back. That extra space is what allows this organizer to hold bigger cans like the 30 oz. with ease." β€”BestValue4MyMoney

I use no liners, just lightly coat with butter before pouring the batter in, and the cakes slide out effortlessly! No staining yet and they clean great in my dishwasher. For the price, you can't beat this. I love these pans!" β€”MissL

    Price: $18.30

I picked eggplant as my accent color and they are a deep rich plum color. A surprise to me was the heat resistant backing (didn't read the description I guess) which adds to its effectiveness and durability.
