    "What's cookin', good lookin'?" –you, to these lovely kitchen products.

    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. Tasty Dessert: All The Sweets You Can Eat to leave visual learners drooling – this takes the simple, above-view style from BuzzFeed Tasty videos and puts it into a picturesque cookbook form.

    Amazon

    This includes recipes for over 70 different desserts. Everything from meringues to soufflés to basic pantry tips can be found in this unnecessarily beautiful cookbook.

    Promising review: "Tasty has done it again with this fun dessert cookbook! There are recipes for the basic bakers to the more advanced/adventurous. I recommend this!" —Dr. Bob

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    2. An Instant Pot you can basically replace your entire kitchen with.

    Amazon

    This replaces nine common kitchen appliances. It can be used as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, and egg cooker, with the ability to sauté, steam, warm, sterilize...oh yeah, it makes cakes, too.

    Promising Review: I deliberated over buying one of these for so long (over a year). I regret all of this deliberation, because now that I have it, I'm not sure how I lived without it. Rice turns out perfectly every time. It's amazing. I push a button and walk away and end up with edible rice every single time. I love that this has so many uses in our combined vegetarian/omnivorous household. This Instant Pot produced the only pork dish that my husband has ever liked. I made an amazing vegan curry. I've made soy milk, almond milk, and cashew milk yogurts, and they've all been fantastic. I'll never 'boil' an egg any other way ever again. Eggs turn out perfectly every time and they are so easy to peel. Stop deliberating and buy this now!" —Laura

    Get it from Amazon for $59.92+ (available in two sizes).

    3. An easy-as-can-be herb grower – this sleek machine uses pre-seeded pods that grow in water, not soil, so it's sure to prevent messes and give the kitchen counter some serious ~herb~ appeal.

    Tasty, youtu.be

    It also uses energy efficient LED lights that'll automatically turn on and off, so no need to think about those! And if you're worried about taking care of your needy plant babies, don't! This has automatic timers to remind you to add water and plant food.

    Get it on sale from BuzzFeed Tasty x Aerogarden for $49.95 (originally $99.99, available in four kits).

    4. A BuzzFeed Tasty x Cuisinart mini food processor – it's gonna do a mighty fine job slicing and dicing your favorite foods, cutting meal prep in half and taking up only half as much space as a standard food processor. Tiny kitchens, rejoice!

    HSN

    Promising review: "This product is so so good. I believe it will be so good for small jobs. Such a good idea." —rhodes1953

    Get it from HSN for $39.99 (available in three colors) or check out all of the Tasty and Cuisinart electronics here.

    5. A mini skillet so you can make a single-serving dish without having to clean out a massive pan.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a great skillet. It fits one egg and leaves it shaped perfectly for an egg sandwich." —Sarah C

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in 15 sizes).

    6. A 19-piece gadget set that'll be an impressively useful way to let '90s babies have the maximalist, rainbow kitchen of their childhood dreams.

    Walmart

    This 19-piece set includes an emoji timer, 10-piece measuring spoon and cup set, two silicone spatulas, a whisk, two tongs, and a three-piece strainer set.

    Promising review: "If you need to give a gift for a housewarming, bridal shower, birthday, Christmas party, or work event, this is perfect! I guarantee everything in this set will be used. You can give it alone or add it to a basket to go along with other gifts. Everything is so colorful, they won't get lost in your drawers." —Sharonpsl

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Tasty collection at Walmart for $16.50.

    7. A Souper Cubes container for easily storing, freezing, and reheating meals in minutes. You're about to be the ~coolest~ meal prepper around.

    Food52

    Get one from Amazon for $19.95 or a pair from Food52 for $40.

    8. A cork opener that works so well you won't have anything more to ~wine~ about after a hard day at work. Your penguin pal is here to take care of everything.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this for my best friend who just recently turned 21. She loves penguins and wine. We've gone through multiple openers that couldn't do the job, but this one is so perfect! It's withstood all our wine adventures!" —Holly Adkins

    Get it from Amazon for $8.20.

    9. A buttercream icing kit that's sure to help basic bakers learn how to decorate dreamy desserts.

    Wilton, WIlton

    This kit includes six decorating bags, three decorating tips (petal, round, and star), a 14-ounce bag of buttercream icing mix, three ounces of rainbow sprinkles, pink and yellow food colors, and an instruction card.

    Get it from Wilton for $14.99 or check out all of the BuzzFeed Tasty x Wilton kits here.

    You can also order this for pickup at Walmart for $12.98

    10. A colorful knife set with a pairing knife, tomato knife, sandwich spreader, and utility knife – grab these and you can be certain your kitchen tool collection is a ~cut~ above the rest.

    Walmart

    Promising review: "Need a set of cute and sharp knives but don't need the big block or a bunch of random knives you'll never use? This set is awesome for me – a basic set for everything I need. No fluff...just sharp knives. I've used the bread knife only a couple times but the tomato knife and the pairing knife are used almost daily. They're showing no signs of wear and are just as sharp as they were to begin with. Great colors too." —Netloa

    Get them from BuzzFeed's Tasty collection at Walmart for $8.44.

    11. A pineapple corer that's sure to have your friends pining after it the moment they see your perfectly garnished holiday drinks.

    Walmart

    Promising review: "This pineapple slicer worked like a charm. The design and structure are very simple. For use, you simply cut off the top of the pineapple, and begin to use the cutter by twisting it clockwise downward into the fruit. Once you get to the bottom of the fruit you must press the yellow hole to detach the handle from the apparatus in order to slide your freshly sliced pineapple off of the corer. If you do not cut the bottom of the pineapple then you can use the juice that has compiled inside the bottom of the fruit. The sliced pineapple comes out as a slinky, but I slice or chop as needed for whatever I am preparing. Due to the ease of this product we buy more fresh pineapple now and less of the canned fruit. This is inexpensive and easy to use all year long." —MommyMinsky

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Tasty collection at Walmart for $8.97.

    12. A Twist Whisk you can turn into a ballon or flat whisk with the twist of your wrist. Say that five times fast and you get one for free.

    Amazon

    ...that miiight not be true.

    Promising review: "I love this versatile whisk! It folds flat for storage and for use as a strong flat whisk. It’s amazing for custards and puddings to alternate styles while having to whisk a while. It’s been perfect for me for five years and I always wash in the dishwasher. Zero concerns." —L. L. Christopher

    Get it from Amazon for $6.89+ (available in two colors).

    13. An 11-piece nonstick cookware set for anyone who has the munchies and just really loves pot...s.

    Walmart

    Promising review: "I am very pleased with the red tasty set I received for Christmas. The set has lasted very well! I cook for seven (or more) people nightly. I put these in the dishwasher pretty much daily. The fact they have lasted through my spouse and teen daughter is phenomenal! They have a few scratches here and there from a knife but I highly recommend this set to anyone." —TexasTaylor

    Get it on sale from the BuzzFeed Tasty collection at Walmart for $49.99 (originally $99, available in four colors).

    14. A dishwasher safe garlic peeler – simply toss your garlic in, press down, and roll to get perfectly peeled garlic in seconds. This is gentle enough to keep your freshly peeled garlic cloves intact while the grip from the material will keep the peelings inside as your cloves pop out, making meal prep mercilessly simple.

    Amazon

    This includes a ventilated case for storage.

    Promising review: "OK, this is DEFINITELY not a gimmick! Follow the instructions and this will save you time and sanity in the kitchen! Roll it with minimal pressure and it works like a champ. It also rinses very easily and dries quick. The case has holes on either end to ensure it dries completely in between uses when you toss it in a drawer. I will never hand/knife smash garlic and fight with those pesky skins sticking to everything ever again." —ThatKasper

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    15. An Alessi tea kettle for design-minded folks who believe the kitchen is the best place to show off functional and beautiful products.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is capacious, sleek, practical, efficient, whimsical (the bird whistle and the delightful dots detail), gorgeous — in a word, perfect. It's entirely stainless steel, so it should last for ages. It has straightforward instructions which were accompanied by clear diagrams. Note the subtle, brilliant hints; the handle is blue because it's cool enough to touch, and the whistle is red because it's the part from which the steam blows out. I love and highly recommend this kettle." —HMM

    Get it from Amazon for $103.22+ (available in three colors).

    16. A two-piece colander and bowl set with handles that are sure to make things easier. Plus, they stack together, keeping you from ~straining~ to find storage space on your shelves.

    Walmart

    Promising review: "I bought these bowls because I have painful osteoarthritis, and it seem that everything is more difficult now. I was having trouble controlling big pots to drain spaghetti and noodles. I tried colanders in the sink, and succeeded in burning myself with the steam. These bowls are bigger than I expected, and I can drain pasta easily now. The second bowl can sit in the sink (and not pick-up any bacteria) while you lift the upper bowl out to drain your food. I was sold on first use. I don't feel like I am putting my safety at risk any more. Good purchase." —kittenowner

    Get them from the BuzzFeed Tasty collection at Walmart for $9.97.

    17. A three-in-one Ninja kitchen set that'll blend and process just about every treat you could eat (looking at you, cookie dough).

    Amazon

    This kitchen system comes with a 1500-watt base, an eight-cup food processor bowl, a 72-ounce pitcher, and two 16-ounce to-go cups with lids.

    Promising review: "This is one of my favorite kitchen gadgets! I haven’t really used the smoothie cups too much, but the food processor bowl and blender are a three to four times a week thing. With the blender, fill it up with ice, turn it on high and in seconds it has made snow, makes awesome daiquiris. The food processor bowl is really neat. It’s for a set of reduction gears in the base to slow down the blades. Homemade salsa in seconds, and it works very well for mixing cookie dough, pizza/bread dough, and ice even used it to mix beef/pork/veal for meatballs." —William Allen Horton

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99.

    18. A toaster for people who don't have enough ~bread~ to feed their over-priced avocado toast needs and would rather save money by making it at home.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love the sleek black and silver look. The slots are wide enough for bagels. I also like the cancel button and the crumb catcher on the bottom, that unhooks to allow for easy cleaning. Apparently it knows when the crumb tray is too full and stops. I undid the latch at the bottom and cleared out the crumb catch, toaster working normal." —Sarah Lynn

    Get it from Amazon for $18.96.

    19. A six-piece nonstick bakeware set that'll keep your cookies from being crummy, in spite of your below-average cookie cooking skills.

    Walmart

    Promising review: "This is a great beginner bake set. Each piece is a crucial edition to a starter kitchen. I love the tiny pops of color, and each piece that comes in this set is absolutely necessary and super versatile. It gives you the capability to bake vegetables, meats, cakes, cupcakes, breads, muffins, banana nut breads and everything in between. They work great, they're durable, and they're a cute set." —Amy

    Get it from the BuzzFeed Tasty collection at Walmart for $21.44.

    20. A bread maker to help you bake perfect loaves of bread using only one container. The partially closed design allows steam to circulate to keep your bread from drying out, while the openings on the side help heat disperse evenly, creating a golden crust. This li'l tool is gonna help you ~rise~ to the occasion any time an occasion calls for baked bread.

    Amazon

    This is both microwave and dishwasher safe. It's capable of withstanding temperatures up to 428 degrees.

    Promising review: "I love this. It's very easy to use and to clean. I have been trying to make fresh bread every week and this is much easier than using my dutch oven. I have been trying different recipes with this bread maker and so far all have come out great!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $23.12.

    21. A handle cover so that the only thing you might possibly risk burning is your food.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "You HAVE to have this if you use your cast iron or carbon steel fry pans in the oven. If you don't believe me, you will after the first time you absent-mindedly grab one. It is also a safety precaution for others in the kitchen working or serving who may not realize the vessel is very hot. I got a few of them so all the fry pans in use in the meal preparation can be shielded." —Philip J. Tramdack

    Get it from Amazon for $3.49+ (available in three colors).

    22. Tasty Every Day, a step-by-step cookbook with 75 satisfying and time-saving recipes that are gonna teach you how to make simple meals, learn useful skills, and other satisfying solutions to save your starving soul.

    Amazon

    This includes recipes like spaghetti with caramelized lemon, shrimp, and parsley, shredded chicken tacos, cauliflower macaroni and cheese, and (get this!) even more.

    Get this BuzzFeed Tasty book from Amazon for $13.99.

    23. A collapsible popcorn popper for movie-enthusiasts who love popcorn, but would also love an alternative to the microwave bags they've been using since childhood.

    Amazon

    This is dishwasher safe and BPA free.

    Promising review: "We love popcorn in this house, and generally pop a giant bowlful at a time from an air popper for a movie night (seven family members). This silicone popper makes it MUCH more practical to pop just a serving or two without buying the nasty yellow waxy bagged microwave popcorn. The quality of popcorn is just as great as we've always been accustomed to, and the amount of unpopped (waste) corn is similar to bagged microwave popcorn — in other words, minimal." —HRA

    Get it from Amazon for $15.90 (available in 15 colors).

    24. A wall, weekly, or daily calendar filled with seasonal recipes you'll love. Whether you decide to embark on a year-long cooking adventure and try one each day or just want to enjoy a new meal a month, this'll be a delectable way to start the new year!

    Amazon

    Each calendar gives you access to online videos that'll take you through the recipes step-by-step.

    Get the wall calendar for $12.24, the weekly one for $13.77, and the daily one for $10.55, all from Amazon (all BuzzFeed Tasty).

    25. A nonstick wok with a spiffy handle helper for people who know perfectly tossing veggies in sauce is not always a ~wok~ in the park.

    Walmart

    Promising review: "I have a wok but it was really difficult to use – too heavy and big for its thin handle. This one has the perfect handle and allows me grab and shake whatever dish I am making. The form of this wok fits perfect the stove. I also really like the color, which is a plus." —Anonymous

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Tasty collection at Walmart for $19.88.

    26. A microwave pasta maker that'll let you prepare, serve, and store a meal all in one container, saving tiny kitchens from unnecessary clutter.

    Amazon

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

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    27. A pack of seven dishwasher-safe stretch lids that can stretch to fit fruits, blenders, and lonely plastic containers – no more digging through drawers of mismatched lids or covering things up with flimsy plastic wrap!

    Amazon

    These are also safe to use in the freezer.

    Promising Review: "I purchased these lids in error. I thought that I was ordering a different set of lids. When they arrived, I was disappointed that I had ordered wrong ones but I have to say, boy! Was I wrong! This was the best 'mistake' I made! They stretch and fit tight on any container. I love the variety of the lid sizes and they perform very well. I'm so glad I purchased these, even though it was in error." —shanry

    Get them from Amazon for $15.97.

    28. A pack of reusable baking cups for home chefs who want baked goods prepared in a way that's good for the environment *and* to prevent paper flakes from sticking to the bottom of mouth-watering muffins.

    Amazon

    These food-grade silicone cups are safe to use in the freezer, microwave, and oven. They can handle temperatures of up to 500 degrees and come in pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.

    Promising review: "These little thingies are perfect! I made some muffins with them and they came out incredibly easily with no residue on the cups at all. I didn't have to use grease or anything. The colors are bright and fun, and they you plenty of each color. These are slightly smaller than a regular cupcake pan/liner, which is actually perfect for my purposes. As others have mentioned, the cups are a bit on the flimsy side, so make sure they're on a baking sheet before you fill them because they can be difficult to transport once full." —kapplejack

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $6.71.

    29. A cheery five-quart Dutch oven so you can make a meal for your sweetheart when neither of you have the money to go ~Dutch~ out at dinner.

    Walmart

    Promising review: "This is good quality for an affordable price! The size is perfect and the color adds some cheer to the kitchen." —Swoll

    Get it from the BuzzFeed Tasty collection at Walmart for $13.94.

    30. A pair of foldable trivets to keep your counters safe from hot pots and pans without taking up any counter space.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This item is space saver in my small kitchen. The design and colors are very nice. They are very sturdy and their balancing ability is good. It does not make any noise and doesn't leave scratch marks on the kitchen or glass dining table. It works very well with small/large pots." —Niketa Patel

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $7.99.

    31. And finally, a Little Tikes x BuzzFeed Tasty Jr. Kitchen with a built-in smartphone holder (so they can film their creative cooking process), three pretend Tasty recipes, the ability to adjust sizes as they age, and 40 pieces of food and accessories for your favorite pint-sized chef.

    Amazon

    If you're looking for more adorable accessories, grab the breakfast, birthday, and emoji cookie kits!

    Promising review: "We were going to wait for Christmas but decided to bring this out over the weekend for my daughter. It's REALLY cute. I've seen other Little Tikes models but this set is super fun because it has little modern foods and cute emoji faces on them. It's adorable and you can build it into a shorter or taller setup depending on your child's age." —Emmy Nichole

    Get it from Amazon for $69.98.
