    55 Products Your Kitchen Is, I’m Sorry, Incomplete Without

    Ok, you might not have room for *every* single one, but they are helpful.

    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 sink caddy to keep your favorite scrubbing tools handy — without letting them sit in their own filth. This bb has a handy drip tray (with a build-in spout!) you can empty out every so often.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love all OXO products and am also happy with this purchase. I place my dish sponges in this and there is enough room for a brush as well. I like also the vent insert which keeps the sponges separate. The compartment at the bottom is a great idea in the design to allow for emptying water rather than letting it pool at the bottom. It is a separate compartment which is of clear plastic and allows you to visibly see if it needs emptying. Great product. Very satisfied." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (also available in stainless steel for $20.95).

    2. 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.

    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.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.99.

    3. A stainless steel Sink Shroom from the makers of the cult-fave TubShroom that'll blend right in with your sink and keep *all* the pesky food remnants from clogging your drain.

    The SinkShroom strainer in a sink
    Amazon

    That hollow black part in the middle? That's designed so the sink will still drain, even if you have a big pot blocking it!

    Promising review: "As someone on a septic system, we can't have a garbage disposal. Consequently we've always lived by sink strainers. And I've tried and dealt with many different ones. But this is, far and away, the best I've even utilized. The holes are sized such that the tiny, meaningless stuff, goes through. And the design is such that even when full of gunk it still drains, and very well at that. Meanwhile, it doesn't accidentally let gunk through that might clog your drain. In the end, it's difficult to describe how great this is. Just drop the cash and check it out for yourself. You'll be glad you did." —R. Snare

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    4. And 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.

    A reviewer's stainless steel sink with staining and the word
    The same sink clean and shiny with text

    I bought this for my white porcelain kitchen sink and I've since texted five people about it, which is really a lot for such a boring grown-up product. It cleans beautifully, but the *best* is its ability to repel stains after cleaning. You know that thing when you rinse out your coffee cup and the coffee water just lingers in your sink and you have to purposefully rinse it out for two minutes? You don't have to do that — the coffee can't stick to the sink and just goes RIGHT down the drain. Time saved, sink clean — this is really a Virgo dream product right here.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    5. 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 $7.99.

    6. A KitchenAid stand mixer bakers or mashed potato lovers will cherish for decades. Creaming butter just takes TOO LONG to do it with a hand mixer, and this machine will last for *years* (and years and years and years).

    The robin's egg blue kitchenaid with attachments
    Wayfair

    It has 10 speed settings, comes with a flat beater, dough hook, and wire whip, and you can get TONS of attachments to make the most use out of this bb. Hello homemade pasta! As someone who loves to bake, it's just necessary to have a KitchenAid IMO.

    Promising review: "Oh where have you been all my life! I’ve always wanted one especially in Aqua Sky and I couldn’t pass this up at the price I received here on Wayfair. It even came in one day so I was very happy! I will be testing her out tomorrow but I’m giving 5 stars now as she is just a beauty, feels well built and I know that she will be with me for a long time according to many Kitchenaid purchasers. Okay I’m in love and sorry to my husband but I have a new love lol ! Happy Mixing!" —Karen

    Get it from Wayfair for $429.99 (available in 20 colors).

    7. And a KitchenAid attachment organizer that hangs right from — you guessed it — the bottom of your cabinets to free up precious drawers and keep your dough hook, paddle, and whisk attachments ready whenever the urge to bake strikes (aka every day).

    8. A knife sharpener with two grooves (one for coarse sharpening and one for quick touch-ups) to make your year-old knives slice like brand new.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have had my set of knives for over 10 years. I was looking to replace them when someone recommended trying to sharpen them. I hated sharpening the knives with the sharpener they came with. I wanted something easy. This was it! I sharpened all my knives with it and they are like they were when I first purchased them. This knife sharpener made it quick and easy. It saved me a lot of money from purchasing a new set. If your knives are dull, give this a try. You can't beat it for the price!" —M. Bell

    Get it from Amazon for $7.17 (available in three colors).

    9. 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.

    I recommended this to my mom to use on her stainless steel (she's a bit of a neat freak and HATES streaks) and she loves it!

    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!" —Katerina

    Get the set of cleanser and polish from Amazon for $15.95.

    10. A roll-up over-the-sink drying rack, because I don't care how big or small your kitchen is — there NEVER seems to be enough counter space.

    The Grommet

    Get it from The Grommet for $14.95.

    Grand Fusion, the brand, is a small business making truly mind-blowing kitchen needs. CORN BUTTER KNIFE ANYONE?!?!?!

    11. A dishwasher cleaner and disinfectant to remove limescale, rust, grease, and other nasty buildup so your machine runs more efficiently than ever — 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

    Get a pack of six tablets from Amazon for $5.89.

    12. A set of 21 Rubbermaid containers with lids that snap onto the *bottom* of containers, meaning you'll never have to go on a 15-minute hunt for the right pair while your leftovers are sitting out.

    The red and clear containers in different sizes
    A reviewer image of the containers stacked with lids on the bottom

    The set includes five 0.5-cup, five 1.25-cup, five 2-cup, two 3-cup, two 5-cup, and two 7-cup containers, plus the lids (of course).

    Promising review: "These are rated #1 and I can see why! They are microwave and dishwasher safe. I love how they stack together and that the lids fit a couple different sizes! Very sturdy and they look great! I hate dealing with container messes so much!! These have helped keep things more organized and makes it easy to find a lid or a container without losing my mind! The containers nest together, and the lids can stack on top of each other too. Locks firmly too! Yet it's easy to take the lids off. Extra bonus for me! I've already washed them, and they came out perfectly! Love these!! I bought the 42 piece set. It had enough variety in container storage and lids! I'm very happy I bought these!! I highly recommend them!" —Geo

    Get a 42-piece set from Amazon for $31.90.

    13. 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?!

    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 $9.98 (also available in green and in a set of two).

    14. An eight-quart programmable slow-cooker that'll save you money on gas — while making it easier to buy and prepare meals ingredients in bulk. You deserve a set-it-and-forget-it dinner after a long day, too.

    The stainless steel slow cooker with meat and veggies inside
    Amazon

    You can set it to cook anywhere from 30 minutes to 18 hours, and the digital timer displays how long is left (perfect for any impatient kiddos to check on dinner). Aaaaand the crock and lid are both dishwasher safe!

    Promising review: "I've been using a slow cooker for years but needed a new one quickly so I could drop off a dish for an event. Grabbed this one and never looked back. Actually got one of these for my mom as a gift, too. It's easy to set, cooks evenly and is easy to clean and to transport. I have a much more expensive slow cooker and I can't tell a bit of difference in the final product; roasts, soups, any variation of chicken. Now the real question is how long will one of these last when compared to the pricey brands...I guess we'll find out eventually but, for now, I think this is an amazing deal." —Karri

    Get it from Amazon for $64.99.

    15. A two-pack of *delicious* high-quality olive oils (an everyday for cooking, baking, etc. and a ~select~ for dipping and finishing), because the better your ingredients, the better your results.

    The two bottles of oil
    Oleamea

    I recently tried this olive oil duo from Oleamea, a small, woman-owned Turkish olive oil brand, and it is MIGHTY delicious. My go-to afternoon snack of grocery store hummus and toasted pita is now majorly upgraded with a sprinkle of za'atar seasoning mix and a hefty drizzle of the "select" oil. Am I enjoying a mezze plate at a restaurant happy hour or eating while hovering over my laptop? Guess we'll never know.

    Promising review: "This olive oil is wonderful. I have used it every day since it arrived on tomatoes and mozzarella, Roasted Broccoli rabe. salads and more. I will be buying more." —1624

    Get the two pack from Oleamea for $20.99 or from Amazon for $27.99 (bottles can also be bought individually on both sites).

    16. A panini press with floating lids that can perfectly grill up any size sandwich — and at a way smaller price tag than an airplane ticket to Italy...or a trip to your local deli on the regular.

    The panini press with a grilled sandwich inside
    Amazon

    And it stores vertically for compact storage in even the teeniest kitchens.

    Promising review: "Freaking awesome! Who knew?! Just like the real thing, at a rock bottom price. This is one of the smartest purchases I have made in a while. This little machine works. The only thing is you have to remember to unplug. Love it. I am eating loads of veggies because of this little number, and saving money as well making my sandwiches at home." —Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in three colors).

    17. A cast iron skillet that'll get job after job after job done — steaks! skillet cookies! at-home pizzas! Keep this bb seasoned (and don't let it rust!) and you won't have to ever replace it.

    Amazon

    It's preseasoned, has excellent heat retention, and has a helper handle built in for easy carrying. Just remember that it gets (and stays) hot hot HOT when it comes out of the oven. Btw, this is our mid-price pick for best cast-iron skillet!

    Promising review: "I own just about every make of cast iron out there and this is the BEST piece I have ever used. Pretty well seasoned from the factory , nice smooth cooking surface . I love the longer curved handle and oversized pour spouts ( they actually pour the liquid not spill it out of the pan). This has quickly become my favorite piece of cast iron and will be buying more." —Will

    Get a 12-inch skillet from Amazon for $29.99 (available in five sizes).

    18. And to round out your pan collection, a nonstick ceramic Always Pan (this one's PFOA-free), because that dinner you spent valuable time on shouldn't be burnt on! This one's designed to do the work of EIGHT pieces of regular old cookware, and comes with a lockable lid, steamer basket, pouring spout, and a nesting spatula with a built-in rest.

    I *love* love love this pan and use it almost every time I cook — eggs and pancakes flip easily and never stick and no matter what I've done to it, the pan ALWAYS wipes clean without any scrubbing effort.

    Promising review: "My always pan is going to be my new favorite cooking ware. Super versatile and absolutely beautiful. Love the functionality that it possesses and the versatility range, someone really thought about all the best way to cook with this! Safe, easy to clean, and beautiful to look at! Makes you want to cook more delicious meals all day long! Shipping took a while because I preordered, but I was happy to wait!" —Celyn V.

    Get it from Our Place for $145 (available in six colors)

    Our Place is a POC-owned business based in Los Angeles. All of their boxes are packaged with biodegradable and recyclable materials, and the Always Pan is made in a female-owned factory in China.

    19. A zero-installation-required magnetic stove shelf for keeping your most-used seasonings at arm's reach. Who *doesn't* need additional storage space in what is truly the best room in your home?

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is amazing and I have no idea I didn’t buy one of these years ago!!! My new stove wouldn’t get close enough to the wall to allow me to rest anything on top without it falling behind. This was absolutely PERFECT. I am very happy that the magnets provided were able to be moved. This allowed me to place them perfectly for maximum hold because my top was slightly curved." —JStill

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in four colors and three sizes from 24" to 30").

    20. Cheese storage paper guaranteed to keep your cheddar sharp, your Parmesan poppin', and your Brie better than ever for way, way longer. You know spaghetti with a little EVOO + parm is your go-to last minute dinner, so keep that parmesan FRESH!

    The paper with wedges of 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 11"x14" sheets of cheese paper from Amazon for $14 (also available in larger packs).

    21. A minimalist silverware tray that'll help you save drawer space, make emptying the dishwasher easier and keep the cutlery for becoming ~clutter-ly~.

    Silverware in the grey four-compartment organizer, taking up just part of a drawer
    Amazon

    It also comes in a version just for knives and one for kitchen utensils and gadgets.

    Promising review: "I thought this would be handy, and help with space management in a small apartment. It turned out to be absolutely perfect. It keeps the silverware clean, and stores a lot in a very small space. I love it. I got two, because I inherited my grandmothers silverware, so there are two types of forks and two types of spoons, and I wanted things separate and organized. Two organizers fit side-by-side in a standard apartment drawer. After getting these, I picked up the knife organizer, and it’s just as handy and useful." —Jerimi

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

    22. A seven-in-one Instant Pot Duo 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

    Promising review: "Best thing I’ve ever bought! I use it constantly and it’s wonderfully fast! Producing great meals." —Trubyslippers

    Promising review: "We bought this a few weeks ago since we have been hearing so much about them and let me tell you, these are the best thing to come around since sliced bread. Basically we haven't had anything to eat in two weeks that hasn't been made in the Instant Pot. The pot itself comes with a recipe book and there are so many more online and we are yet to find a recipe that isn't amazing. The build of the Pot is super sturdy as well. highly recommend." —Thomas D

    Amazon

    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 $15.68 — each filter last about three months.

    Promising review: "Easy to use foot pedal. Doesn't hit the wall and can be pushed all the way against the wall. Trash bag when put on can be tucked in between pull out and outer can so you don't see it when its closed. Great size and I love the slow close lid. Seems very well made and looks great. Highly recommend." —Amber

    Get it from Amazon for $72.96 (available in 12 sizes and styles).

    24. A spice *drawer* organizer so you can turn the messiest part of the kitchen into a clear, easy-to-read assortment of jars and labels. You'll save cabinet space AND never accidentally add cumin where you meant to add coriander again.

    Spice racks only *wish* they could. These drawer liners are made of a soft foam to keep your jars in the right position (label up!) so you can quickly grab what you need. And you can trim 'em to fit your drawers!

    Promising review: "This is one of my favorite things I've ever purchased from Amazon! I think this will be my go-to gift for all of my friends who love cooking as much as I do! Freeing up cabinet space and having something that can so easily be rinsed off in the sink makes this a for-sure buy!" —momonono

    Get a 10-foot roll from Amazon for $15.99.

    26. A pack of sound-dampening bumpers you can stick right on noisy cabinets to keep you from being jarred awake with the BANG that indicates someone else's late-night or early-morning bowl of cereal.

    A cabinet door with clear bumper
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Funny enough, but this is one of my favorite low-cost upgrades to the house. Our previous dampers were a cloth that came with the cabinets and were getting a bit thin. Thought I would try and upgrade to save on the stress of the hickory doors. Wow was I surprised of the difference of a good bumper. These stick on very strong, but don't ruin the wood if removed. They have a beautiful but solid thud that is not loud, but also don't bounce the door or drawer back at you which others might do. There are also so many in the pack that I replaced every bumper in the house, good or bad, and still haven't gone through half the bag. They'll be passed down through the generations!" —Andy Levesque

    27. A set of motion-sensing strip lights for installing effortless under-cabinet lighting (making your kitchen look more ~expensive~!) and brightening dark pantries.

    Kitchen cabinets in a dark room with bright under-cabinet lighting
    A pantry with lights under each shelf

    They go on when you get within three meters (almost 10 feet), and turn off 15 seconds after you walk out of range. And they just stick right on — how easy is that?

    Promising review: "One of the smartest things that I've purchased in a while. Just peel off the double-sided tape cover and stick the magnet wherever you need light. The light is metal so it clings to the magnet that you just stuck to the wall, ceiling, wherever — it's super easy to change the batteries. Motion-sensing so you don't have to touch them — just be there. Also, they are light-sensitive so that you don't waste battery power if there is enough light anyway. I like to use rechargeable batteries so that I don't have to buy batteries all the time. They are bright enough for a regular closet or under a kitchen cabinet and the lights are LED so they are energy-efficient. I just bought a couple more 3-packs for seasonal gifts. This is a no-brainer — you need this!" —Kindle Customer

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $16.99.

    28. A clip-on strainer made of sturdy BPA-free silicone so you can drain your pasta one-handed! No more overcooked pasta while you try to unearth that giant colander.

    The strainer clipped on a pot so a person can pour out the water with one hand
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I cannot say enough good about this strainer. It fits all my pots from small to huge, even frying pans! I have strainers, colanders, every kind of lid converter...this strainer is the best ever. When the pot is too heavy for me to hold to drain off the water, with this I can still hold on with both hands, and then when it is mostly drained, I set the pot in the sink to continue to drain (fidgety pastas) Washes up like a dream, or toss in the dishwasher. I do not know how I lived without this strainer. Now I can get rid of probably 20 items out of my kitchens!" —SGA

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in four colors).

    29. A set of reusable liners to keep your oven cleaner than ever. No worries if your lasagna drips over or your sweet potatoes ooze a little — you won't have to scrub out the oven, just remove these when the oven cools and you can wash 'em right up in the sink.

    And you can trim them with a pair of scissors to fit whatever size oven you have.

    Promising review: "I have used these liners for years. I hate cleaning my oven and this liner has saved me so much time and effort, not to mention my oven always looks like new. I should comment on the durability of these liners. It recommends that you remove the liner before initiating the self-cleaning feature on the oven. I admit that I have forgotten a couple times. Although it does the liner no good, it does stand up to the tremendous heat. I would recommend this liner for every busy person who has no time or desire to clean their oven. It's amazing." —Cartec

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $12.95.

    30. A Nutribullet for anyone who loves smoothies, hummus, soup, and other blended delicacies you don't need to make A TON of at a time — but hates using extra dishes. Aka every single person.

    Travel cup, no blender = one less thing to clean. This set includes the blender base, a tall cup, two short cups, a flat blade, an emulsifying blade, two re-sealable lids, and a manual with recipes!

    Promising review: "I've owned my Nutribullet for about two months now, and I still can't believe how amazing this product is!!! It makes getting healthy, nutritious food into your diet so incredibly easy. I can roll out of bed in the morning, grab an avocado, some nonfat plain yogurt, raw honey, flax seeds, and kale, blend up a delicious breakfast, AND clean everything up in less than 10 minutes. This blender is so seriously easy to clean. I love the cups that it comes with, too. It comes with a neat book full of recipes, although I haven't tried any yet...

    This bb comes with 13 knives, a pair of kitchen scissors, a peeler, and a two-stage knife sharpener.

    Promising review: "These knives are great! They stay super sharp, they’re comfortable to hold, and I love how much counter space it leaves as opposed to a big bulky knife block. Fits perfectly in my minimalist kitchen!!! And it looks great on my counter being one of the few things that I keep on my countertop! It is the perfect amount of knives without being too many knives (I don’t like things in excess)! I have never had a cheese knife before, and this baby is my favorite one in the whole set! LOL! It slices through hard cheeses like butter! Have not tried on soft cheese, but I’m sure it’ll be great because it is super sharp! I can’t say enough about how much I love these knives!!" —Sadie Allen

    32. And a four-pack of durable (aka they won't get all gouged up when chopping) cutting boards you can bend into a funnel shape for easy ingredient adding. And they have a textured back so they won't slip and slide while you're chopping.

    They're color-coded and individually labelled so you won't cross-contaminate in the kitchen: red for meat, green for vegetables, blue for fish, and yellow for fruit.

    Promising review: "This is the best idea, labeled cutting boards! Now if I could just get my hubby to use them based on their labels that would be great. They are thin and flexible which is perfect for bending to transfer things straight to the pot. I have not noticed I have left any knife marks on the mats yet. I love that they are dishwasher safe and with so many of them I got rid of my gigantic cutting board that didn't fit in the DW. I wish they came in all one color options with the labels, but that's just personal preference." —KT Marie
