    43 Kitchen Products That Are Basically Magic

    Not quite as good as "accio food," but we're doing our best.

    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 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!

    amazon.com

    It's battery operated — just run it in some soapy water for an easy cleaning.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in two colors).

    Promising review: "Love this little thing! I have every thing you can think of at home for making coffee and espresso... Well I love the Starbucks pumpkin cream cold brew with foam. I set out to make my own. Well I can now make cold foam thanks to this little tool. Love it!" —Gav's mama

    2. A batter-dispenser that'll make cupcakes, pancakes, and muffins 👏 perfectly uniform 👏.

    Amazon

    Just squeeze the trigger to dispense and time your portions perfectly. The wide noddle will even easily dispense ~chunky~ batters with ease.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    Promising review: "Why, oh why didn't I buy this a whole lot sooner? I have always made pancakes or waffles reluctantly because of the mess it always makes with drips and runs all over the waffle maker, the counter, and the stove. Well, no more! This wonderful tool puts the batter exactly where you want it, when you want it — and then closes quickly and completely so you don't drip batter when putting it down. I highly recommend this dispenser. It does just what it is supposed to do, without any fuss or mistakes." —Barbara D. G.

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

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $5.56 (also available in several multi-packs).

    Promising review: "Don't know what the 'flavor' category means with respect to these wine bottle stoppers but the stoppers work as advertised. A local vineyard was using them in their sample room so I assumed that since a vineyard was using them, they would work as advertised and they do. You can lay a wine bottle flat and it won't leak. Nice that it filters out cork crumbs." —Lawrol

    4. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Just pop the individual clove in the tube, and roll it against the counter a few times for a quick peel. Than simply push the press down, and your perfectly minced pieces are ready to use!

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "LOVE this product! I like the size of the garlic chunks that you get with this masher, and I LOVE how easy it is to clean compared to other garlic mashers. I love that you don't need to use your fingers to peel the garlic. My mom has been cooking with garlic with every meal for 50+ years and wants one now too!!" —Mama Miller

    5. A brown sugar–softening bear, because no one wants to heat up some oatmeal or prepare to bake cookies, only to discover the brown sugar is now rock-hard.

    amazon.com

    I timed my morning routine to the nanosecond, and I don't have time to chip away sugar with a pick!

    Get it from Amazon for $5.61

    Promising review: "This is the second brown sugar bear I've purchased because they work so well. They are simple to use and very effective. Soak it in water and then place it in your brown sugar container. It will keep the sugar soft and easy to scoop. If you have brown sugar that has already hardened and is like a solid rock, you can place the bear in the container and by the next day you will be able to scoop it again. It's simple, effective, and inexpensive. There is no reason not to get this little bear." —Hannah M.

    6. 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.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.95.

    Promising review: "FINALLY! My long search is over for a solution that really works! The eggs poach perfectly! The process involves simply dropping an egg into the poacher and waiting a few minutes for the desired level of firmness — no stirring the water to create a vortex or messing with the egg during cooking! This means that when you need to cook for several guests, multiple poachers can be used to prepare as many eggs as needed at the same time! There was even a handy chart with suggested poaching times which is dead-on accurate. Cleanup is a breeze! I am ordering another set and won't poach any other way than with Good Grips. My only negative comment is that I will probably eat way more Eggs Benedict than I should now that it is so easy to prepare the eggs!" —JoeBT

    7. 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.

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $4.04.

    Promising review: "This amazing product saved us $1,000. This product is amazing!. We have a kitchen sink that was so stained and scratched that we were shopping around for a new one. My wife stumbled on this product and we decided to give it a try. I used my drill with a soft buffing attachment, and after about 30 minutes, the sink was like brand new!! Highly recommend this product." —Joseph Rodriguez

    8. A microwave omelet maker to upgrade your morning routine. ~Omelet you finish~, but this might be the easiest way to make a healthy breakfast of all time. OF ALL TIME.

    Amazon

    Mix up your eggs, add ingredients, cook in the microwave. That's it!

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    Promising review: "I love this thing! I've had it for about a month now and I use it almost everyday. I love western omelettes, but I hated cooking them. Now I just throw my cheese, onion, green peppers, and ham in here with the eggs and in a couple of minutes, I'm eating. I do have to cook it a little longer than it says, but I do throw everything in it but the kitchen sink. Wish I had found this a long time ago." —RayRay

    9. 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).

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $25 (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "This is the ultimate cutting board. There isn't anything I don't like about it. The board stays put on the granite counter top, the raised edges keep my food from flying off the board and the tilt allows all the juices to stay on the board. If I'm cutting fruit that is really juicy like grapefruit I can then pour the juice out to use in the salad dressing. I liked it so much I bought three of them in different colors for different purposes. Whoever designed this board really knew what a cook needs in the kitchen. Having two sides, one with grippers for the food is brilliant. It is just the right size and the raised edges do not interfere with the knife. I would give this thing 10 stars if I could." —JMSAZ

    10. A ~Fasta Pasta~ cooker to make perfectly al dente pasta right in the microwave — no waiting for the pot to boil. Plus, the lid doubles as a strainer, so you really won't dirty any extra dishes!

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    Promising review: "I bought this microwave pasta cooker at a time when I did not have a stove. Even though I have a stove now, I still use this cooker for dinner for myself sometimes because it works so well and quickly! The pasta comes out very soft and perfectly cooked when instructions are followed. When the pasta is done, the lid is used to drain the cooker of water and works very well. Pasta is the only thing I have cooked in this product, but there are a lot of other things you can cook in it. I highly recommend this to any college student or adult who needs a fast microwave pasta cooker!" —Kelsi Murphy

    11. A bottle of Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel seasoning, because if you don't live near a TJ's, this is the best way to get your hands on this fan-favorite & flavorful blend reviewers swear makes almost *anything* more deliciuos.

    amazon.com

    It's cheaper at Trader Joe's, but if there isn't one near you (or braving the line feels like simply Too Much), this is a great option!

    Get it from Amazon for $6.35.

    Promising review: "So far I've used this on homemade popcorn, roasted broccoli, and fried eggs. All amazing. I've had it less than a week and I've already gone through a quarter of the bottle. Will definitely repurchase and recommend to all of my friends." —Britta

    12. A set of toaster-friendly bags perfect for whipping up an ooey gooey grilled cheese when you can't really manage the whole stove thing. Plus they're dishwasher safe, so you don't need to do any washing up by hand!

    amazon.com

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $8.49.

    Promising review: "We were really surprised by these. These are NOT paper bags. They're a strong, somewhat pliable material that is easily washed. I bought them for a teen who enjoys toasted sandwiches and he LOVES them." —JestPeachy

    13. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Get the kit from Amazon for $10.47.

    Promising review: "Never give up, like the Little Engine that could. I love my glass top stove, but cleaning it is not as easy as just wiping it down. If you have one, you know how it is when something boils over or spills. This bakes whatever hits the glass and leaves those frustrating scorch marks. No matter how hard I scrubbed, I could never get the film off. I have tried every cleaning product, as well every home remedy suggestion and it never removes the marks. I came across this product on Amazon and after reading the reviews, thought, 'Why not?' Ah, all is good in the world after finding this. I put a quarter-size dot of Cerama Bryte, scrubbed it with a light scratch pad, and rainbows and unicorns came dancing. Ah, so shiny. I think I’ve invested 20+ labor hours trying to clean the stove top, and just gave up. With this product, it took me five minutes. If you have the same issue, get this stuff — it’s incredible. 5 stars+++" —Implied Queens

    14. A three-in-one avocado prepping tool for fanning out 'Grammable slices on your avo toast — in no time flat. Sorry buying a house, but I just really love this food.

    Amazon

    The three-in-one functions, you ask? Cut it open with the knife, pop out the pit with the circle in the middle, and slice and scoop with the other end. It *will* save you time — and save your fingers from using a knife to try and stab out the pit.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "Avocado? Yes, Please! This tool is awesome. Easy to cut open the fruit. Pit remover works well, just push onto the pit and give it a twist, and the pit pops right out. The best part is the slicer. Makes beautiful slices for a great presentation. The tool can then be used to scrape any remaining fruit out of the skin. Really happy I bought this tool!" —NPR Man

    15. An INCREDIBLY speedy cold brew maker that can have your favorite beverage ready in as little as FIVE! MINUTES! What is this wizardry?

    Amazon

    It makes up to 16 servings in one brew; just choose your preferred brew setting: 5 min for light, 10 min for medium, and 15 min for dark, which are WAY shorter than the usual overnight brewing methods. Then store the leftovers in the fridge and enjoy iced coffee all week long.

    Get it from Amazon for $59.95.

    Promising review: "I love cold brew. I hate brewing cold brew. Most cold brews that I make at home take at least 24 hours to steep and that means I have to remember to get it going in advance of needing it. They take up precious room in my fridge and really just led to me buying tons of Stok each week at the grocery. Then I found this machine... OH MY GOODNESS it's a life changer. It takes about 20 minutes from start to finish and I've got my Stok bottle refilled and stored in the fridge with fresh (Starbucks) cold brewed coffee. I love that I can just set it and forget it and come back it's done. It's as easy to clean as any drop coffee maker, it's not too noisy (it's not quiet) and you can even store the carafe in the fridge directly after brewing. If you like cold brew or iced coffee, do not wait to buy this. Order it now! You won't regret it!" —Heather A

    16. A countertop Aerogarden so you can grow all the herbs you want (no backyard required). And thanks to the LED grow lights, plus a watering-reminding system, no green thumb required either.

    Macy's

    The grow lights are energy efficient (aka they turn on and off automatically), and it tells you when to water (and feed with the included Miracle Grow plant food!) your baby greens, so these herbs'll basically grow themselves. The system comes with seed pods to grow Genovese basil, curly parsley, dill, mint, thyme, and Thai basil. Y U M!

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $129.99 (originally $189.99; available in black and green).

    Promising review: "I love to cook, so the thought of having fresh herbs and veggies right on my kitchen counter was exciting. However, I had never had much success gardening. This new Goodful AeroGarden changed that for me. I made the best caprese salad I have ever eaten last week with some fresh basil from my garden. My kids actually enjoy helping me harvest and eat something green. It is freezing outside right now, but we still have fresh produce growing in our home! I can't believe it works this well. If you enjoy cooking or gardening, I would highly recommend." —FreshMom

    17. An electric wine opener that'll open a bottle in seconds while you just stand there and watch, seriously reducing the amount of time you have to wait before having a glass of wine.

    Amazon

    Push a button and the job is D O N E (in seven seconds!). It'll open 80 bottles on a single charge.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    Promising review: "My husband who is sick of helping me open my wine that he ordered this for me after I called him at work and was complaining how much I hate our wine opener :( This opener my friend is super smooth it opens the wine bottle in one press of a button. My real issue with other wine opener was getting the cork out of screw afterwards, but with this wine opener all I have to do is just hit the reverse button to get the cork out out with no problem! It comes with the cap opener and charging cable. It’s lightweight and just looks great too; I've kept it in my kitchen with wine bottles it looks like a piece of decor. For all my girlfriends out there who hate the normal wine opener get this one, trust me you'll love it. Take it from me, I've used all kinds of wine openers, twist, lever, rabbit, other type of electric ones and this one is the best." —vidya

    18. A set of bake-even strips you can wrap around cake pans before you bake for a more level, evenly baked result. No need to cut off the top of your cake = no wasted cake!!

    amazon.com

    Although I do sometimes like to snack on that part. Just soak them in water while you're mixing up the batter, then wrap!

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $15.45.

    Promising review: "I first heard about these bake-even strips on a baking blog and just had to try them out. I am so glad I did! My cakes would usually come out looking like a dormant volcano and I'd have to spend quite some time trying to cut them down to be level, usually ending up trimming almost half the cake away! But with these bake-even strips, my cakes came out flat and pretty evenly baked without the darker, slightly over-cooked edges. I even got compliments on how even my cake levels looked... a definite MUST HAVE for those who do a lot of baking." —Shari Nakano

    19. Double-wall insulated rocks glasses that'll look amazing sitting out on the counter, keep your drink cooler (or warmer, if you use 'em for coffee) longer, and NEVER SWEAT or leave water marks on your kitchen table.

    Amazon

    That's right, no annoying condensation. They're made of sturdy borosilicate glass, so you can use them for hot or cold drinks, because any beverage deserves to look a little more beautiful. AND they're scratch-resistant and microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $16.99.

    Promising review: "These were much better than I could have imagined. They feel great in the hand and don't sweat. I use mine almost every day and they still look great after being put into the dishwasher. The size is perfect for old fashioneds as well as rum and Cokes or gin and tonics. They were shipped in a first-class box with plenty protection. These would make a great gift for connoisseur on your list." —riovalley

    20. 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.

    amazon.com

    Cut off the top of your pineapple, twist the corer into the fruit (kind of like a wine bottle corkscrew), then pull it out. You now have a cored and spiral-cut pineapple in minutes!

    Get it from Amazon for $11.98.

    Promising review: "OMG! Why did I take so long to get one of these? I would typically spend two or three minutes slicing up a pineapple and I LOVE pineapple so its pretty common for me. Now, I can do it in 30 seconds, and that was the first time not knowing what I was doing or what to expect. I suspect I'll have this down to 10 seconds on the next go round. Love IT! Oh, BTW, it is sturdy and seems like it should last a while." —riverseine

    21. Antimicrobial silicone sponges that'll never get stinky — they're almost 100% resistant to mold and mildew, more durable than regular sponges, and won't scratch your pots and pans!

    Amazon

    They *guarantee* that each scrubber sponge will stay odor-free for at least three months.

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $9.95.

    Promising review: "My girlfriend has a keen nose for mildew, which meant we were throwing out kitchen sponges well before they were worn out. I came across these and was very happy with the first ones we tried. Absolutely no odor, even after several weeks worth of usage. The scrubber will break down long before it starts to smell. A definite winner in my book!" —Amazon Customer

    Also available in a version designed to clean your stovetop!

    22. An *odor-neutralizing* trashcan with a step-on opening mechanism so you don't have to touch it with your germy, chicken-breast hands.

    amazon.com

    The best part? The lid closes *slowly* so it doesn't make that loud BANG every time. You can get three-packs of odor filters for $19.99 — each filter last about three months.

    Get it from Amazon for $63.99 (also available in a 13-gallon size in three finishes).

    Promising review: "Our waste container arrived in perfect condition, well packaged. Nothing to set up really and our 13 gallon bags fit perfectly. We bought this item because our dogs made a sport of dumping our old trash can whenever left unattended. After three days they seem oblivious to it now, likely due to lack of odors. Even if they are aware of the contents I don't think they could turn this thing over. Love it! Time will tell how well it is made but it seems fine for the price. The dogs are defeated at last." —Amazon Customer

    23. A champagne stopper to preserve the bubbles in your half-finished bottle of sparkling wine for DAYS. Aka this is the perfect accessory for Aperol spritz szn.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    I have this myself, and what a great purchase! This little bb is so easy to use — just pop it on top of the bottle, push the metal sides in so it clamps on, then push the top button several times to vacuum seal and preserve the bubs. Then when you next want a glass, spritz, or mimosa, you'll hear that same *POP* you heard when first taking out the cork — and the effervescence you so crave will be fully intact. Plus, you can confidently store your leftover bottle on its side in your fridge; I've had zero leakage problems with this!

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

    24. Bar Keeper's Friend soft cleansing ~liquid~ that'll become your new kitchen cleaning BFF. Sinks, stained cookware, stainless steel, faucets, and handles? CLEAN AT LAST!

    amazon.com

    It works on SO. MANY. SURFACES — everything mentioned above PLUS countertops, tubs, toilets, grout, and more — so you can get to work and see results with only one product. The before & after above?! That's a pot that was forgotten on the stove and almost caught fire — saved and cleaned with Barkeeper's Friend.

    Promising review: "This is one of my favorite cleaning products for cleaning porcelain or steel. Nothing else seems to clean like this product, seriously. I think some of my tough stains might be rust-related or from hard water, & this stuff cleans it easily (better than bleach, which doesn’t!) I apply the liquid cleaner on a sponge, then spread it over the stainless steel in my kitchen sink & also my porcelain bath tub. If there’s a tough stain, I leave the solution on for about a minute or two. Then I turn on the water & wipe it all clean with my sponge. All the stains seem to disappear!! My bath tub looks as clean as the day I bought it, & I’ve had it for 10 years!! My kitchen sink is spotless as well with little effort. I’ve tried bleach in the past, but it could never remove tough stains & had a strong smell. This product doesn’t smell as strong, but it cleans much better with less effort to boot! I only recently tried it out, but it is the only cleaner I’ll buy for tough stains from now on! This product is awesome." —Candy21

    Get the cleanser, plus a non-scratch cloth and scrubber from Amazon for $14.95.

    Check out our first-hand review of Bar Keeper's Friend original *and* the soft cleansing liquid for more deets and photographic ~evidence~.

    25. A seven-in-one Instant Pot you've probably heard a lot about — for a good reason. Or rather seven good reasons: It'll slow cook, pressure cook, make rice, sauté, make yogurt, and keep food warm. Bye bye other appliances!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Get a six-quart Instant Pot from Amazon for $69 (also available in three-quart and eight-quart sizes).

    Promising review: "I can't believe that I love this thing. All my friends were getting them and raving about it. But I absolutely hate my slow cooker, and I figured this device would be much the same. I finally decided to get one when my friend posted that she had made amazing carnitas in it. My husband is Mexican and carnitas are his favorite food, so I thought I'd get one to try it out and hope everyone was right. The first thing I made (after the water test) was the carnitas and they KNOCKED OUR SOCKS OFF. Then I made rice and it came out better than my old rice cooker. Tonight I made ribs and the entire family went wild. I've had this Instant Pot for roughly 48 hours and I'm already using it for a fourth time right now to make oatmeal. Get one. You will not be sorry." —Regina Croskey-Corcoran

    Still wondering if this is right for you? Check out I Tried The Instant Pot That Everyone's Obsessed With for an in-depth look.

    26. A silicone safeguard to prevent your pot from boiling over and getting pasta water all over your cooktop. Are you as TIRED of scrubbing as I am?!

    amazon.com

    A watched pot never boils, but an unwatched pot makes a huge mess. This bb is heat safe up to 482 degrees, so you can safely pee while your pasta cooks without dealing with the aftermath. You can even steam veggies right on top!

    Promising review: "Love this product! It does exactly what it is designed to do. It really works, has prevented many boil overs for me. I can now make my oatmeal, pasta, or chicken broth without any worry of a messy spill-over. I no longer have to stand near the stove to watch for the boil-over point, I can do other things or get distracted while this marvelous invention takes care of whatever I am simmering or boiling. It is a great value, you get two of them and I gave one to my son who cooks. It is also easy to clean, you can pop the yellow flower off for easier cleaning." —Hey Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (also available in green and in a set of two).

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

    BuzzFeed / Natalie Brown

    The vents regulate the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide and keeps moisture away so your strawberries taste freshly-picked days and days and days later. I recently got a couple of these and a bunch of basil and strawberries stayed fresh for SO LONG!!

    Get them from Amazon for $4.99+ each (available in two sizes).

    Promising review: "I read the reviews and thought I’d give these a try since they here easily half the price of the other ones I looked at that had to have the charcoal filters replaced periodically. These need no filter changes and oh-my-gosh, they work! I went on a 10 day trip to visit my mom and left my husband home with asparagus, strawberries, and spinach in the containers. He ate some of all of them, but there was plenty left when I got back and they were in perfect condition! I couldn’t believe it! These will save us a lot of money not throwing away food because we couldn’t get through it fast enough. (We shop at Costco and get large containers of produce.) These are TOTALLY worth getting and I will be getting a few more sizes. Excellent product!!!" —Elizabeth Walter

    Check out our full review of these game-changing containers!

    28. Ethylene gas–absorbing apples for anyone tired of fresh produce spoiling before they can use it — the company claims these'll save the average household up to $600 per year.

    Amazon

    They can keep produce fresher for two to three times longer. Each packet inside the Bluapple lasts three months, and you can order replacement packets as needed.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $19.99.

    Promising review: "This product works so much better than I thought it would! Worth every penny. The little ethylene gas (produce lets off this gas and it speeds up it's demise) absorbing packet goes into the apple and you just toss it in your product drawer. Easy peasy! This pack comes with two apples and enough packets to last a full year. I have had strawberries last over a week in the drawer (no fuzzy mold or squishy spots). This has resulted in less waste and I am sure that they have more than paid for themselves in food savings in just a couple of months. So glad I gave these a try." —Lisa C.

    29. Cheese storage paper guaranteed to keep your cheddar sharp, your Parmesan poppin', and your Brie better than ever for way, way longer.

    Amazon

    The paper breathes just the right amount, maintaining the perfect humidity and mimicking the environment that cheese is aged in.

    Get a package of 15 11"x14" sheets of cheese paper from Amazon for $9 (also available in larger packs).

    Promising review: "Before I bought this cheese paper I would do the cheese search in the refrigerator. After buying cheeses, opening them, and then rewrapping them in heaven knows what (namely plastic wrap, aluminum foil, and plastic containers), it was always the same result: moldy cheese. This box contains the paper in sheets plus some stickers that you can write on with the name of the cheese and the date it was wrapped or even sell by date. There are also pictures of a sheep, cow, and goat so the source can be identified by circling or checking one of them! What I also like is that the cheeses can be rewrapped after use and amazingly the stickers still stick! The paper can also be cut to size to wrap smaller cheeses. So far I have noted that the cheeses have stayed fresh with not a trace of mold. I highly recommend this product to all cheese lovers!" —Prairie Woman

    30. A pair of hexagonal cookie dough molds that'll be allllllmost as good as the gift of unlimited cookies. Smoosh the dough in for perfectly formed shapes ready to bake. Or instead of baking, pop the whole container in the freezer, and they'll ALWAYS have dough on hand for fresh chocolate chippers.

    Food52

    It can also be used for foods/liquids other than cookie dough but......nah.

    Get a set of two from Food 52 for $35.

    Promising review: "So easy to use. The container makes perfectly equal cookie segments ready to go from the freezer to the cookie sheet--ready for baking. Very compact storage, as opposed to the roll of cookie dough which was my previous go-to method of freezing excess cookie dough." —Peggy K.

    31. A roll of ~bamboo~ paper towels you can toss in the washing machine and reuse over *120 times*. They're super-absorbent and durable, but are soft enough to use on your skin, too. You can even use them on your Swiffer!

    Amazon

    One roll of these will tackle a number of messes equivalent to 60 ROLLS of conventional paper towels.

    Get a roll from Amazon for $8.99.

    Promising review: "I've had these bamboo towels for a month now and am incredibly impressed with their performance! They're much larger than a regular paper towel, thicker, softer and more absorbent. I've washed the first ones I've torn off the roll several times now and they DO survive the laundry and perform just as well afterward. I've only used five bamboo towels this month, washed them and re-used. Several times. I would have been through a whole roll of Brawny by now. One caveat...when you wash them, you're supposed to air dry them, so I haven't sent any through the dryer. And I haven't needed to, because allowing them to air dry has not affected the quality of the towels when I 're-roll' them!" —A. Clark

    32. A Dash Rapid egg cooker you've probably heard great things about before. Yeah it makes perfect and effortless hardboiled eggs, but did you know it can also make poached or scrambled eggs, and even individual omelets? Now you do.

    Amazon

    Just fill it with water (according to your chosen level of egg doneness), add up to six eggs, and turn on. When the eggs are done, it'll automatically shut off! Yes, you can take a nap while waiting for your eggs to boil — and not worry about leaving them on too long. The removable parts are also dishwasher safe, so get ready for this to be your new lazy best friend.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "If hard-boiled eggs are at all a part of your life, this device will change everything. Reclaim lost hours, catch up on missed TV, reconnect with old friends and family -—anything is possible with the free time you'll find at your disposal as you drop six eggs into this beast, press a button, and then walk away. What will you do? High-intensity exercise? Model building? Learn a second language? I hear your concern. 'What if I become so engrossed in my newfound love of taxonomy that I forget about my eggs?' Fear not, efficient chef. Like the trump of Gabriel himself, the unmistakable tone of this technological marvel could rouse the dead and will bring you running to your fresh-and-ready ova's side. The Dash Go Rapid Egg Cooker is what mankind has been working towards since the first roundish stone was shaped into a wheel. Witness the apex of human innovation!" —J. Mercer Crenshaw

    33. An air fryer so you can reheat leftovers (no more soggy fries!!!!!!!!) and whip up your favorite crunchy foods (hello wings!) with little... or NO... added oil. It circulates air to create a perfectly browned exterior, without the danger of a giant pot of hot oil.

    amazon.com

    This particular model comes with a rack, non-stick baking dish, and a cookbook with 52 pages of recipes to get you started.

    Promising review: "Was interested in an air fryer and after a little research I decided on this brand. I am not disappointed! Seemed like it offered the most bang for your buck. They all cook in basically the same way, so it came down to price (this one is slightly less expensive than other brands), size (didn't need to cook for more than 4-5 people at a time), and accessories (which this comes with!!). Easy to operate, just set your temperature and turn the timer to how many minutes you want to cook. The first thing I made was chicken wings — cooked for 25 minutes at 360 degrees and they were perfectly juicy, thoroughly cooked, and crispy on the outside. Did not make the house seem smoky (like frying or cooking wings in the oven can do)! Clean up was also very easy, just a little soapy hot water and all done! I can't wait to try additional foods and recipes!" —Kiki L.

    Get it from Amazon for $81.56 (also available in red).

    34. A ~guac lock~ container that'll press alllllllll the air out so your precious dip won't turn brown or get mushy. Leftover guac? Miracles DO happen.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $15.75.

    Promising review: "Fairly certain I've never left a review for ANYTHING on Amazon but everyone needs to know how amazing this product is! I finally purchased it after the price inflated up to almost $70 and came back down to $30! WORTH. EVERY. PENNY. I'm a self proclaimed guac enthusiast and the guac in my photo is a WEEK OLD. I put this bowl to the test when I first got it and it gets an A+++ ! The guac is not only fresh in color but still has great taste after a whole week! Getcha one guac lovers!" —angel brooke raines

    35. 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.

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $5.67.

    Promising review: "Holy moly. This is some kind of miracle product. I sprayed it inside my oven and left it overnight, and wiped off an incredible sludge of brown goo in the morning, leaving behind a nearly pristine oven interior. There were a few areas that I had missed, so I sprayed and came back later that day. There are a few brown spots that don't really want to come off, but I am not too fussed about them. 95% of the grease came right off. It worked on the sides of the oven and on the rack. What I really liked is that it didn't smell too bad. I expected some terrible toxic chemical, and though it does have a ('lemon') odor, it's not that strong. Definitely better than running the self-clean and filling my house with fumes for five hours. The can is a lot bigger than I expected, and I barely used any (I was cleaning the 'small' oven). It will last for a long time. Prepare to sacrifice a sponge to this project as well." –SBP

    36. A pair of claw shredders you'll want to get your ~paws~ on ASAP for all of your meat carving and pulling needs.

    Amazon

    Get them from Amazon for $12.95 (available in six colors).

    Promising review: "We bought this specifically for pulled pork barbecue. Oh my goodness what a difference these make. Shredded seven pounds of bbq pork loin in about five minutes!!! I was standing there watching and just couldn't believe my eyes. Pork was hot but the claws kept your hands away from the heat. Super easy cleanup, just thrown them in the top rack of the dishwasher. My daughter says they are the *@#$!!!" —Jeannie McClees

    37. A microwave rice cooker that'll make perfectly steamed 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!

    amazon.com

    You can also use it to make steamed veggies.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "I've had this for seven months now, and I think it's still my favorite tool in my entire kitchen. I eat a ton of rice, and I love how easy this is to use and how easy it is to clean. It comes out consistently every time. I hated how messy cooking on the stove is, and my electric cooker got mold down inside the part that you can't wash. With this, there's no mess, and there's nowhere you can't clean or that can trap mold or bacteria. I can throw every part of it into the dishwasher after I'm done with it. It's awesome! I wish I'd had this back in college." —C. Stone

    38. A stainless steel bar that'll actually rid your hands of foul odors (even fish, garlic, and onions!). Just rub — with or *without* water — and the stink is gone.

    Amazon

    If you have a stainless steel faucet, that works too, but this'll help keep it spotless!

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    Promising review: "For years we have been just using large metal spoons or the sides of our metal sink to remove various odors from our hands (i.e. after chopping garlic or onions). Finally, I said to myself, 'Self, we need to move into the 21st century and get a metal bar'....and Ta-Daaaaah! I am really glad that we bought this because it looks really nice and it works so much better than a spoon or sink. For anyone that doesn't believe that this type of thing works, go ahead and chop 10 cloves of garlic and then rub your hands on this bar under cold running water. The results will speak for themselves. I would highly recommend this to anyone." —Sergio DaSilveira

    39. 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!

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $13.90 (available in seven colors).

    Promising review: "This is a great little invention. Easy to clean and store, and it pops the popcorn perfectly every single time. Save yourself a ton of money, and just buy this and pick up some unpopped kernels from the grocery store. I bought a small organic bag for $3 and got about 15-20 bowls out of it. Now I can finally have some decent microwave popcorn without having to deal with the trans fats or palm oil that all of the major brands seem to use in their products nowadays." —Amazon Customer

    40. A Muller veggie chopper to turn your onion-cutting tears into tears of joy when you realize the whole dang thing is diced with one press of the lever. Because your need for fresh salsa can't wait.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    It comes with the chopper itself, two super-sharp dicing discs (one for 6.8mm dices and one for 12.6mm dices), and a cleaning brush.

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (also available in a four-blade version for $29.99).

    Promising review: "This is the BEST chopper I have found and I have purchased many. This works so well that I bought two. Other choppers fail, sometimes on the first time. This chopper has several built-in features that lock the attachments in place as well as locks the hinge of the chopper in place. Other choppers do not have these features and are very fragile and break easier. I searched a long time to find this chopper and I won't buy anything else. I chop fruits and vegetables every day and this chopper is a life saver to ensure that all chopped items are the same size and works every time. It's a winner!" —LeviWilliams

    41. A perforated crisping pan, because you deserve reheated, frozen, and homemade pizza with an actually CRUNCHY (never soggy) crust. And it works on anything that needs to be crisped up in the oven — hello frozen fries!

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    Promising review: "This saves the pizza crust from getting burned and delivers a better texture to the crust. It allows the heat to fully penetrate the underside of the pizza and make it a delectable, mouth-watering experience!!!! Restaurant quality!!!!" —Lee

    42. A set of silicone baking liners to make even the most stuck-on foods (looking at you, fish!) a thing of the past. Just pop it on your sheet pan and bake away.

    amazon.com

    These are also game-changing if you like to bake cookies tbh.

    Get a set of three (two half sheets and one quarter sheet) from Amazon for $13.97.

    Promising review: "These mats are my go-to baking tool. This is my second set, the first are my own and are still going strong after several years, this set is for a gift. They are sturdy, wash up well, and make clean up a breeze. I try and cook healthy with little or no oil and these sheets allow me to bake anything from portobello mushrooms, to oil-free cookies without sticking to the pan. They survive high temperature cooking with oven fries at 475 as well as moderate temperature baking. I even use them to roll fresh spring rolls and sweet rolls when I need a non-stick surface. You will enjoy these." —C.J.

    43. 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.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "After hours of searching and comparing ice cream scoops I chose this one. I am VERY HAPPY with this purchase. It was delivered exactly on time and we immediately washed it so we could try it out. Wish we would've bought it sooner and saved the lives of our spoons ; -) We tried it on four different ice creams and it was like scooping whipped cream! This scoop is awesome!! Very heavy duty but not too heavy. It has a nice covering that makes it easy to grip especially since I have small hands. Its dishwasher safe and comes with a lifetime warranty!!! This is the only scoop you'll ever need to buy!" —Jackie R.
