    1. A rounded lettuce chopper with nylon serrated blades that'll easily cut and blend lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, and all your other favorite toppings *right in the bowl*. Your kitchen is now a Sweetgreen; you're welcome.

    2. A 48-needle meat tenderizer to create "heat channels" that'll reduce cooking time by up to 40% — meaning less time for your meat to get dried out in the oven.

    3. A multifunctional cutting board with two sides: both are at an angle with a raised lid to catch breadcrumbs, sauce, juices, etc — use the side with the 3D grips to hold meat in place for carving and the other side for non-meat items (slicing bread, cutting fruit, etc).

    4. A stainless steel, dishwasher safe ice cream scoop with a ~chiseled edge~ and ergonomic grip to make dishing up a sundae feel less like arm day at the gym.

    5. A set of shredding claws with handles so you can transform a store-bought rotisserie chicken into a HUGE variety of meals with ease — and without burning your fingers or getting them greasy.

    6. A garlic prepping set with a silicone tube (that'll peel the garlic) and a press (that'll mince it) so you can flavor your food without getting stinky fingers. You're a shortcut away from tiny pieces of flavorful minced garlic, without sweating or injuring yourself with a real knife.

    7. A handheld electric milk frother so you don't *have* to leave your home to enjoy a fabulous cafe-quality latte or cappuccino. It even works on iced bevvies!

    8. A pomegranate de-seeder that'll keep you from splurging on prepared fruit — just pop the cut-in-half pomegranate on top, and tap with a spoon until every seed comes out. Your favorite superfood is ready to eat, and you didn't even have to get super annoyed.

    9. A set of silicone egg poachers with perforated cups to mimic the traditional poaching method (aka swirling water around and around) without having to do any work — and so your egg stays perfectly round and never wisps away.

    10. A stuffed patty mold that'll help you whip up a Jucy Lucy in the comfort of your own home — (you won't even have to wear pants). Or just help you shape un-stuffed patties for a uniform cooking time.

    11. A two-stage knife sharpener with one channel for coarse sharpening (like on those extremely dull 20-year-old knives in your drawer) and one channel for polishing and regular touch-ups, because chopping with dull knives isn't only tedious, it's also very dangerous.

    12. Cheese storage paper sheets or bags that'll keep your favorite fromages fresh for far, far longer.

    13. A five-in-one wine stopper that'll also aerate, filter out cork particles, pour neatly, and re-cork the bottle.

    14. A Cerama-Bryte cooktop cleaning kit, which includes cooktop cleaning solution, a scrubbing pad, and a scraper so you can absolutely remove every bit of baked- and caked-on food from any smooth range — no matter how long it's been there.

    15. An easy-breezy pineapple corer perfect 🎶 if you like piña coladas 🎶... but not spending a fortune on pre-cut pineapple. This thing is so easy to use, it's like a tropical vacation in your kitchen.

    16. Rubbermaid FreshWorks storage containers with venting technology to keep produce fresh for up to 80% longer.

    17. A fume-free oven cleaner you can spray on, leave for a minute, and then wipe away for an oven so clean, you'll think it was swapped out for a new model overnight. Time to reward yourself after all this cleaning with a cake.

    18. A microwave popper so you can buy your kernels in bulk (no dumb little bags!) and top your popcorn with WHATEVER you choose — no oil required, if you don't want to add it!

    19. A three-in-one avocado tool for anyone who's not quite so handy with a chef's knife. This gadget'll open your favorite green fruit up, pop out the pit, and slice and scoop perfectly every time.

    20. A handheld spiralizer to make eating your veggies a bit more fun. Curly carrot salads (no tired lettuce here), cold sesame noodles with cucumber ribbons, pesto zoodle work lunches... getting your five a day in has never been so easy. Talk about adding a ~twist~ to your cooking!

    21. A two-in-one chop 'n' stir tool ideal for thoroughly cooking ground beef, easily mashing boiled potatoes, dicing hardboiled eggs for egg salad, and oh-so much more — all with the twist and press of one hand.

    22. A tomato huller to remove the stem with a quick twist so you can quickly prep caprese salad or get started on that from-scratch tomato sauce lickety-split.

    23. A pair of herb scissors, because chopping scallions, basil, and other flavorful ingredients can be tedious, but compared to a regular knife, these multi-blade shears can get the job done in seconds.

    24. An emulsifying bottle with a build-in blender ball for flavorful homemade salad dressings, marinades, and sauces you'll drizzle on everything — no whisking required.

    25. A Dash rapid cooker that'll make whipping up nutritious hardboiled eggs less...well...hard. No boiling water, no checking a timer. Just sit back and relax until the (very loud) alarm goes off — perfect eggs are ready!

    26. A trio of rubber jar openers so you can get into that delicious container of pickles or your shortcut jar of tomato sauce without straining your hand. ~Get a grip~ already!

    27. A box of slow cooker liners, because the whole *point* of using a slow cooker is that it's supposed to be easy. And not having to scrub yours? That's ~truly~ easy.

    28. A spice *drawer* organizing liner to turn your messiest part of the kitchen into a clear, easy-to-read assortment of jars and labels — and keep them that way. You'll never accidentally add cumin where you meant to add coriander again.

    29. A brown sugar–softening bear so you won't ever check your pantry before making chocolate chip cookies or your morning oatmeal, only to find rock-hard brown sugar. It'll stay soft and scoop-able every time.

    30. A microwave rice steamer that'll make perfectly fluffy (and never burnt) results every time, without the mess or hassle of using a pot or traditional rice cooker. Plus, you can pop the whole thing in the dishwasher!

    31. A sink cleaner and polish formulated to use on stainless steel AND porcelain sinks (plus cast iron, corian, acrylic, and more) to restore that just-like-new shine *and* protect against further damage. That new sink you've been wanting? It can wait, now.

    32. A fish spatula great for (surprise) SO MUCH more than fish! It has a beveled edge, meaning it slides right under anything (even delicate foods like eggs) for easy flipping or removing items from the pan. No more broken yolks in 2019.

    33. A stainless steel bar that'll actually rid your hands of foul odors (even fish, garlic, and onions!) without a lot of heavily scented soap or skin-irritating scrubbing.

    34. An omelet maker that'll deliver a delicious and healthy breakfast from the microwave to your plate in just minutes — and will taste like it was made on the stove!
