Oh, and FYI β€” 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." β€”C. Stone

    Get it from Amazon for $15.48.

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

    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." β€”Sergio DaSilveira

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (also available in garlic and fish shapes).

    3. 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." β€”Grace S.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $11.99.

    4. 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 β€” you don't have to hang onto the bottle so it doesn't spin, like my old one β€” and it looks attractive on the counter." β€”Mary

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    5. 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

    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 β€” 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!" β€”Kiki L.

    Get it from Amazon for $82.04 (available in two colors and two sizes).

    6. An omelet maker that'll deliver a delicious and healthy breakfast from the microwave to your plate in just minutes β€” 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 & underdone or firm but dry & 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." β€”Vanilla Chameleon

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    7. A double-chambered chopper to blend or dice perfectly sized veggies TWO at a time with just the pull of a string.

    Amazon

    It comes with two whisking blades and two cutting blades for all your culinary needs. You can also remover the separator and chop twice as much of the same ingredient!

    Promising review: "This thing is bad to the bone. So freaking easy. I just love pulling this to chop! Once I've chopped, I just put the whole container in the fridge and serve as I need for recipes. Very good buy for the price." β€”VictoriaPDX to FLL

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    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 $8.53+ each (available in six 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!!!" β€”Elizabeth Walter

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

    9. And ethylene gas–absorbing apples for anyone tired of fresh produce spoiling before they can use it β€” 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.

    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." β€”Lisa C.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $17.99.

    10. 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." β€”riverseine

    11. 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

    It totally works β€” and this one has over 1,000 glowing reviews!

    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." β€”Ruth Dickhoff

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

    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 β€” e. g., holding a watermelon with one hand/claw as you cut with the other hand." β€”J. Renfrow

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

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

    amazon.com

    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!" β€”Prairie Woman

    Get a package of 15 11"x14" 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.

    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 β€” 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." β€”MaryJ44319

    Get it from Amazon: just the chopper for $14.95 or the chopper and bowl set for $24.99.

    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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The quality of these mats is excellent. They are well made and fit my half sheet pans perfectly. I decided to buy a set while reading a recipe for making brittle. The author recommended using baking sheets. I bought the Kitzini sheets based on reviews and price. My recommendation? Run, don't walk, and order a few sets. I ordered a total of three! I've roasted veggies, baked cookies, baked fish, and made lasagna and pizza. You would never know that I had used the sheets or the pans I lined them with because I was able to quickly rinse them with a little water and a dish rag to make them look brand new. For the roasted veggies and the baked fish I was able to cut down on the oil I used, too. This product is truly a kitchen essential!" β€”Ahmet A

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $14.95.

    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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am really bad at judging dough thickness and, since I'm very detail-oriented, I kept a ruler in the kitchen trying to keep my dough thickness consistent. That of course took much longer so my dough would warm and be harder to work with. So I finally broke down and ordered this pin before the holidays. The result: I love this rolling pin. Now, it is so easy to make my gingerbread, shortbread, and sugar cookies. I don't have to worry about rolling too thin so it's very quick to roll the dough. And I especially love that my six-year-old son uses it very easily as well. Getting the rings on and off is easy and the sizes on the rings are marked. I highly recommend this rolling pin!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    17. If you have stainless steel appliances, a must-have plant-based cleaner to remove streaks, marks, and fingerprints from all of your appliances with one wipe of the included microfiber cloth.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you have a Subzero fridge, you know the struggle is real when it comes to keeping it clean. It's a different type of stainless steel and shows all product residue. Then I found this stuff. Oh wow! A few seconds of polishing and it looks amazing!! it has never looked this good, this shiny, and this clean! Best product ever!" β€”Katerina

    Get the set of cleanser and polish from Amazon for $14.97.

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

    Amazon

    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." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.90 (available in 10 colors).

    19. Antimicrobial silicone sponges that'll never get stinky β€” 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.

    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!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $9.95.

    Also available in a version designed to clean your stovetop!

    20. 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." β€”Hey Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (also available in green and in a set of two).

    21. And if it's too late, 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 β€” no matter how long it's been there.

    amazon.com / amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a game changer! Had the hardest time finding something to clean my stove without scratching the surface. This thing works wonders. You can use the yellow sponge that comes with it or just use paper towels. Works great. It is also good on many surfaces, not just the stovetop. I recommended it to my family and they all loved it!" β€”BaiSam

    Get the kit from Amazon for $10.88.

    22. 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!!!!" β€”Lee

    Get it from Amazon for $14.77.

    23. An ice tray with a spill-proof lid and easy-fill top so you can stack 'em in the freezer β€” and walk from the sink to the freezer without sloshing all over the place.

    Amazon

    AND it'll keep your cubes from getting that funky freezer smell. AAAAAANNND the actual ice mold itself is flexible so you can pop the cubes out super easily.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "This is fantastic! It can be used for regular ice cubes, or what I actually bought it for, to freeze green smoothies so they can be popped into a travel cup in the mornings. This ice tray is supersized, which is perfect. The cover keeps freezer smells out. The lid has an opening which allows the liquid to be poured in with no chance of spilling. The bottom is made of soft silicone, so the frozen cubes can be popped out with ease, but with a rigid plastic top part so you can handle it without it collapsing. Great design." β€”donap

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

    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 $9.95.

    25. 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." β€”Jem

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    26. 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.

    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 β€” and even salt β€” 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." β€”Hannah M.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.25.

    27. 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.

    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." β€”L. J. Schrader

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $5.99.

    28. 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!" β€”A. Clark

    Get a roll from Amazon for $8.99.

    29. 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.

    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 β€” 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 -β€”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!" β€”J. Mercer Crenshaw

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in five colors).

    30. A quick and easy breakfast sandwich maker so you can enjoy a hot and satisfying brekkie without having to make a pit stop on the way to work β€” or shelling out those extra bucks.

    Amazon

    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." β€”Mistie Morgan

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

    31. A pack of dishwasher cleaner and disinfectant tablets to 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) β€” while you just sit back and relax. It even kills Salmonella and E. coli!

    Amazon

    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!" β€”Sheila

    Get a pack of six tablets from Amazon for $3.89.

    32. An avocado tool to add some of that green goodness to every meal and help you eat guacamole guaca-more.

    Amazon

    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!" β€”NPR Man

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    33. 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!" β€”angel brooke raines

    Get it from Amazon for $15.39.
