    35 Kitchen Products That Actually Do What They Say They Will

    Effective little wonders that are worth the storage space

    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 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

    You can also use it to make steamed veggies.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $17.97.

    2. Clip-on stands to keep your bags upright while pouring in leftovers for storage; you won't waste another morsel.

    Amazon

    They're *also* great for air drying bags you've washed out to reuse.

    Promising review: "I used three of these to help me make freezer meals for after I have a baby. I can honestly say I don't know how I would have filled the freezer bags without these ingenious baggy holders. I was able to dump veggies, spices, meat, and cans of heavy beans and tomatoes into the bags, and they stood up the entire time without sliding or spilling. One of the bags I stuffed literally to the brim, as full as it could go, and the bag did not fall down. I would definitely recommend these." —Grace S.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $11.35+ (available in packs of two, three, four, and six).

    3. 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.

    The soap bar-shaped stainless steel, with the text "rub away" on it
    Amazon

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $8.63.

    4. A compact, fold-down bread slicer so you can cut even pieces of delicious loaves, whether you're picking them up at your favorite local bakery or joining the from-scratch sourdough bandwagon.

    Sierra Base

    It folds down flat to just an inch and a half.

    Get it from Sierra Base on Etsy for $54.95.

    Sierra Made is an Oregon-based Etsy Shop — all of their products are made in the U.S.

    5. A stainless-steel electric corkscrew that'll open a bottle in seconds, seriously reducing the amount of time you have to wait before having a glass of wine.

    Amazon

    It comes with a cool charging stand that glows blue, and the opener can open up to 30 bottles on a single charge.

    Promising review: "I had one of the earliest electric wine openers, but it finally gave up the ghost. Boy, am I glad now! This new one is fantastic! It's really easy to use, takes no effort — you don't have to hang onto the bottle so it doesn't spin, like my old one — and it looks attractive on the counter." —Mary

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99.

    6. 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, amazon.com

    This particular model comes with a rack, nonstick 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)! Cleanup 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 $84.99+ (available in two colors).

    7. 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!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This brings omelets to my weekday breakfast. I've been trying to eat a low-carb diet, and the idea of eggs for breakfast appeals to me. But, I am *so* NOT a morning person; and getting up early to stir a low-n-slow scramble just does not work for me. I've tried microwaving eggs in custard cups but they always turned out either soupy and underdone or firm but dry and rubbery. But this makes them Just Right, every time, in two minutes flat. That's less time than it takes me to brew my coffee. Two or three eggs, some herbs, a few chopped veggies, and perhaps a sprinkle of cheese makes for a quick, easy, and tasty breakfast." —Vanilla Chameleon

    Get it from Amazon for $22.02.

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

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    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 $14.52+ each (available in four sizes and in sets of multiples).

    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

    9. 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.

    A reviewer image of their spiralized pineapple and the empty pineapple "shell"
    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

    10. A silicone tube designed to easily peel garlic. Just pop the clove in the tube and roll it back and forth against the table or counter.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    Promising review: "It really works! My least favorite part about cooking is peeling all the little garlic cloves. This thing peels them in a snap! I don't have to smash each clove and pick the pieces of skin apart from the pieces of crushed garlic. The skin just slides right off! 10/10 would recommend." —Ruth Dickhoff

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

    Hands using the black claws to shred a hunk of meat
    Amazon

    Promising review: "These claws are just what you need for shredding pork, chicken, beef or any other items. The points are sharp, narrow, and long and work well as a pair. It's much more efficient and quicker than using two forks. I thought I might have been a little extravagant in ordering this but now I realize it is very useful beyond shredding — e. g., holding a watermelon with one hand/claw as you cut with the other hand." —J. Renfrow

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

    12. A lemon-lavender soy candle made of soy wax (it burns slower than paraffin!) for a long-lasting fresh scent that'll fill your kitchen — but not overpower — if cooking or trash can smells get to be too much.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I love this lemon lavender candle - great for the kitchen. The scent is very refreshing to me — not in any way overpowering." —KWL

    Get it from Pretty Honest for $20 (it's a pre-order due to the popular demand!).

    Pretty Honest is a Black-owned business that makes pretty, deliciously scented, biogradeable soy wax candles. And they're just so pretty — check out the summer pastel collection!

    13. Cheese storage paper for keeping your cheddar sharp, your Parmesan poppin', and your Brie better than ever for way, way longer.

    The paper wrapped around a wedge of hard cheese
    Amazon

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

    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

    Get a package of 15 11x14-inch sheets of cheese paper from Amazon for $14 (also available in larger packs).

    14. A salad chopper and bowl guaranteed to change your salad game as you know it; just toss in your greens and veggies, run your round cutter through it, and you're good to go.

    Hand rolling the chopper (it's like a rolling double pizza cutter) over a salad in a bowl
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Best gadget ever. As a Disciple of Alton, I don't buy unitaskers, but made an exception for this one. I love it and use it almost every night for dinner. You can throw almost all of your salad veggies in the bowl, and with a few strokes, chop them as finely as you like. (Exception: you still have to chop tomatoes by hand, because the chopper wheel tends to just squish them.) The resulting chopped salad 'holds' the dressing more evenly and is prettier and more inviting to eat. This gadget also makes it really easy to chop ingredients like cilantro or parsley into your salad — a great way to use leftover fresh herbs. I do have a suggestion for improvement: if this bowl came with a lid, it would be easier to prepare the chopped salad ahead and store it in the fridge, until you're ready to add the dressing." —MaryJ44319

    Get the chopper and bowl set from Amazon for $25.99.

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

    A reviewer with the mats on two half sheets and one quarter sheet, each topped with roasted veggies
    amazon.com

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

    Promising review: "OMG!!! I don’t know how I ever baked without silicone baking mats before. This was my first time trying them, and I was NOT disappointed! They are truthfully non-stick. They bake evenly every time. They are quite durable; my daughter used one directly on the rack for her pizza (she didn’t know that this manufacturer recommends that you NOT do that). It baked the pizza evenly and the cheese came out perfectly browned, while the crust was perfectly crisp. They wash very well in the dishwasher; I just stand them in a slot between the plates. I’ve used these mats to bake cookies, hot pockets, chicken breast, bacon, crescent rolls, and more. Every single item turned out perfectly. I would HIGHLY recommend these baking mats! I will definitely be purchasing more for myself and others!" —YaLanda

    Get a set of four mats (two half and two quarter), plus a silicone brush and spatula from Amazon for $32.85.

    16. An adjustable rolling pin with removable rings to let you roll out cookie dough or pie crust to an exact thickness in no time flat. AND it has measurements printed on the length of the pin for easy pie crust rolling (and comes with a pastry mat with measurements printed on it too).

    A review image of the mat, rolling pin and discs, a pie made using the mat, and cut-out cookies, all with perfectly even heights
    amazon.com

    It comes with 1/16-, 1/8-, 1/4- and 3/8-inch discs!

    Promising review: "My old wooden rolling pin had painted handles and the paint was flaking off so I needed a new pin. I really liked what I learned about these metal ones that you can control the height with the little sliding rings. The included silicone mat is great for rolling my gluten-free dough on and has the circles for pies too. Bonus that it has measurements for conversion on there as well so I don't have to think about ratios. The sliding rings are a variety of sizes and help keep the thickness of the dough consistent during the rolling process so I don't have to guess whether it's the same anymore." —Sunshiine Mel

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    17. 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

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $15.90 (available in ten colors).

    18. 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! Aka you won't be tossing a whole new sponge every other day.

    Model using the sponge on a dish with text "silicone. no odor. clean"
    Amazon

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

    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

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $9.95.

    Also available in a version designed to clean your stovetop!

    19. 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!

    Amazon

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    20. An ice tray with a spill-proof silicone lid so you can store the tray in the freezer sideways or at an angle.

    Amazon

    AND it'll keep your cubes from getting that funky freezer smell.

    Promising review: "I love these ice trays. I needed something that my husband could freeze and use daily in his lunch chest. He goes through eight trays a day. They stack nicely. We run them under warm water to release the lid, refill with water and cover. We have 22 of them in our freezer. So we always have plenty of ice on hand without the smell. I've had no problems with leakage." —S. Raney

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $16.99 (also available in a four-pack).

    21. A quad of silicone cups that'll ensure perfectly poached eggs with no hassle and no need for swirling water or vinegar.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are just the coolest things ever! I have tried several times in he past to make poached eggs, and never could get the hang of it. Earlier this year, I stayed in a hotel that had a beautiful tray of poached eggs on their buffet table every morning, and hey were so good. Now I can make beautiful poached eggs at home with these poacher cups...and it's fun and never makes a mess. The pot doesn't even get dirty because the cups float! Such a great idea, and definitely worth the price!" –Katie W.

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $10.95.

    22. 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: "Lettuce was going bad in my refrigerator produce bin while lettuce in my outdoor compost bin seemed to stay green much longer. Then I bought these, and now my lettuce stays fresh for a very long time. This product pays for itself many times over." —Amazon Customer

    23. 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 — hello dalgona coffee!

    A mason jar with milk and whipped coffee
    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

    24. A vacuum-sealing wine saver to remove air and keep your wine fresh for up to a week — great for people who drink one glass a day or use wine for cooking!

    The vacuum sealing device, plus a stopper
    Amazon

    Put the stopper in your open bottle, attach the vacuum sealer, and pump out the air. When you hear the patented click, that means it's sealed! The vacuum seal prevents oxidization (because there's no air next to the wine), preserving the taste.

    Get a wine saver with two stoppers from Amazon for $29.99 (also available in larger sets with more stoppers and different designs).

    Promising review: "This product keeps your red wine good for about a week and is also nice to use on white wine to ensure freshness. I'm so happy I bought it! I like to have a glass of wine or two in the evenings, but I rarely finish a bottle of red within the time it takes the wine to go bad (which I find is 3-4 days). With this, my red wine lasts about a week and a half!" —LindsayRoseEliz.

    25. 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.

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $3.97 (also available in larger packs).

    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

    26. A salad spinner to keep your greens washed and fresh for crisp salads whenever you want. You'll never be surprised looking into a sad bowl of wilted and spoiled greens. "But....I *just* bought these!!"

    Amazon

    This one has a smart, wobble-free design, and the corners make it easy to pour the excess water out neatly!

    Get it from Amazon for $30.97.

    Promising review: "I eat a huge amount of greens everyday. I like to wash them and then dry them thoroughly before I store them. This spinner really dries the vegetables and then you don't get those nasty wilting bits in the containers of baby greens from the market after a day or two. Well worth the money and looks like it will last a very long time." —JPC10

    27. 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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Miracle in a spray can! I had just about given up on my stove top, and was getting ready to purchase a replacement top when I came across this product. I sprayed it on the entire surface of my stove and let it sit for two days. After that, with a little elbow grease I was able to easily remove all the extensive build up! It almost looks like brand new. By investing a few dollars and time, I was able to save so much more, since I no longer need to purchase a new stove top. Such a bargain in this little spray can." —Jem

    Get it from Amazon for $6.44.

    28. 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 you now have to toss. It'll stay soft and scoop-able every time.

    The terracotta bear next to a jar of brown sugar
    Amazon

    Just soak it in water for 20 minutes and pop in the container. You can *also* use it without soaking to absorb moisture, keeping foods like pretzels, crackers, chips — and even salt — nice and dry.

    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.

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    29. A trio of cinching closures (kind of like the ones you use on drawstring bags) you can use on loaves of bread or any other bagged food. No more stale bread?! Dreams really DO come true.

    A bag of bread with the red closure
    Amazon

    These are way easier to keep track of (and seal WAY better) than those stupid plastic dongles that come on bread and English muffins.

    Promising review: "These little plastic doodads may have saved my marriage! My husband and I had a longstanding competition to see who had the best method of closing bread and roll bags, since I absolutely hated dealing with metal twist ties or plastic clips. I would throw them away once I opened the wrapper and fold over the top, but he was sure this was going to make things go stale. I wasn't quite sure what to think of these little beauties when I saw them, as I am wary of bag clips that really don't stay put or keep things fresh. You simply push the spring loaded end, opening the little divot, and pop it over the end of any bag that would use a twist tie. It is so much quicker, easier, less frustrating (and, frankly much cuter, too) and they have made my kitchen a happier place." —L. J. Schrader

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $5.99.

    30. 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.

    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

    Get a roll from Amazon for $12.99 (also available in packs of two and four).

    31. A quick and easy breakfast sandwich maker so you can enjoy a hot and satisfying brekkie without having to go out — or shelling out those extra bucks.

    AMmazon, amazon.com

    It'll cook eggs, veggies, meats, and toast up English muffins, biscuits, and even small bagels. It comes with a recipe book with ideas, and you can TOSS THE REMOVABLE PARTS IN THE DISHWASHER! Breakfast is ready in five!

    Promising review: "The best small appliance I have ever bought! My husband buys the microwaveable egg sandwiches that are frozen and they are pretty expensive, especially when you buy enough for the month. He just grabs one and goes to work. So not only did this little gadget work as well as it said, it will save us money in the long run. The food is better since it's fresher, and I just couldn't believe it took five minutes. The sandwich was done and without all that messy frying and smelling up the house. Now, this is so easy, even my husband can do it without me if he had to. I want to buy one for my kids, the one at college and the newly wed. Also, the one here on Amazon was cheaper than the one I saw at the store and I had it in two days." —Mistie Morgan

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in three colors, plus a double sandwich maker).

    32. A rapid egg cooker you're sure to think is ~eggsquisite~; it can make hard-, medium-, or soft-boiled eggs, *plus* poached or scrambled eggs and omelets.

    The black egg cooker with six eggs, plus a tray of deviled eggs
    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. You can also make poached eggs, scrambled eggs, and omelettes in this game-changing product.

    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 trumpet 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. A dishwasher cleaner and disinfectant that'll remove limescale, rust, grease, and other nasty buildup so your machine runs more efficiently than ever (aka you do *not* have to replace your whole unit if your dishes just aren't getting as clean as they used to) — while you just sit back and relax.

    Promising review: "After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher, due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener no longer was doing it's job, so I had the rental company replace it. Dishwasher performance improved somewhat. I decided to do two more loads before deciding to purchase a new one. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh in good housekeeping magazine. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I added that to my order. When it came, I tossed one of the tablets into the bottom of the full machine, per instructions, and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! My glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I will use this faithfully on a monthly basis, as recommended. I can even put it on my subscribe and save order, so I will get a new pack every 6 months. I am amazed!" —Sheila

    It'll slice open the fruit, painlessly (aka no knife needed) pop out the pit, and create perfectly Instagrammable slices.

    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!" —NPR Man

    35. And 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.

    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
