    A reviewer's fourteen piece container storage set in a cupboard

    Promising review: "When my first set came, I immediately ordered a second, then a third...and...the fourth one is arriving today. 🤣 I love that the length and width of each container is uniform-the same lid fits every single size!!! They lock super tight. I wasn’t planning to use the chalkboard labels and marker that come with, but once I started I couldn’t stop. Thrilled with the product and the excellent, responsive service from the company. Looking forward to more products from them!"—Sam

    Price: $44.97

    A reviewer's under-sink organizer underneath their sink with cleaning products

    Promising review: "Bought this and really love it! This under the sink expandable shelf unit really works great for me and my wife. I have a weird shaped space under my kitchen sink where I store all of my cleaning supplies. The bottles and sponges are just thrown around before I bought this. I was able to adjust the width, height and depth to fit the odd shaped area under my kitchen sink. Appreciate how you can modify the size/shape to make it work. It also fit perfectly around the plumbing! That was nice. Now I don't have to sift through all the cleaning bottles to find the one I am looking for. Boom, it's all organized now so I can see where everything is. I bought this for my bathrooms too. They're inexpensive and serve a good organizational purpose for me in the house."—Evan

    Price: $24.95

    4. A pack of reusable cleaning cloths for an eco-friendly solution to cleaning your kitchen. These super absorbent cloths combine the benefits of a traditional tea towel with the absorbency of a sponge for a supreme clean. Plus, they're biodegradable!

    A reviewer's multi color assortment of reusable dish cloths

    Promising review: "If you hate using paper towels but also hate stinky sponges, here is the solution! These arrived in fun colors and work great in the kitchen! You reuse so there isn’t the same waste as with paper towels. Oh ya, they are great at cleaning inside windshield too!"—Patricia Frantzen

    Price: $16.95 (available in five colors and a multi-color pack)

    5. A door pantry organizer that'll instantly add more storage to your space. Hang this shelving unit over your door for a quick and easy to find your bag of Cheetos or favorite Trader Joe's seasoning.,

    Promising review: "This is great! First of all it took me about four or five minutes to set up, super easy. On of the big draws that drew us to this one was the sticky adhesive at the bottom. We are in an apartment so screwing into the door was not an option. We had a previous one here that did not attach at the bottom and every time out 2-year-old closed the door hard all the Shalies would swing slightly and bang back on the door. With this one I can close the door hard and it holds nicely. It has a very sturdy build as well, not flimsy like out last one. The dimensions of each basket are about 5.5 inches by 15.5 inches. Great space saver!"—Jason

    Price: $39.98 (available in two colors)

    6. A snap-on strainer for the easiest and most mess-free way to strain water from your pots. This silicone colander clips on to your pots and pants to quickly drain your pots without having to transfer your food from pot to strainer to pot again. It's the ultimate time saver, plus it's nearly the quarter of the size of a traditional colander.

    The strainer

    Promising review: "Works with any size pot or pan. Frankly, I don't need a strainer anymore! Very well-made. I used my rice cooker to rinse the rice before cooking. It's always been a mess before. Now I strain the water out and then add fresh water and seasonings all in the same rice pot. Not a grain of rice was wasted!"—Robert Grijalva

    Price: $16.99 (available in five colors)

    7. A pack of microfiber cleaning cloths so you can clean virtually any surface without the fear of scratches. These ultra-soft cloths are perfect for cleaning sinks, stainless steel appliances and more! Bonus: they're machine washable.,

    Promising review: "I love these microfiber cloths. I use them for my cleaning business and they work great, much better than the brand I used to buy from Walmart. They aren't the big ones either, they are square and the size of a dish rag, which I like. These cut my cleaning time in half when cleaning a fridge interior or grimy bathtub. I also use them to polish stainless steel, dust and polish furniture, and clean counters. They surprisingly are able to scrub much more than a regular wash cloth and they pick up dust and hair much better than other brands I've used. Just make sure to wash and espydry them separately from other cloths or towels. They will end up full of fibers from your towels and such and it will ruin them."—Kayla

    Price: $11.49+ (available in four multi-pack sizes)

    8. A pots and pans cabinet organizer, because getting a pot for your mac n' cheese shouldn't be the most stressful part of your day. If you're sick of wrestling with your pans and being attacked by stray lids, then this storage unit is for you. Store up to five pans for an ultra-satisfying organized cabinet.

    A reviewer's pots and pans cabinet organizer

    Promising review: "This rack was simple to assemble and even comes with screws if you want to secure it to the bottom of the cabinet. It holds all of my large skillets with room for nesting with some. I put my two heavy Lodge cast-iron skillets on the bottom racks which weighed it down enough to not have to use the anchor screws in the cabinet. I need a second one but will have to wait a bit but I definitely recommend this rack!! I’ve had it for two months and use it daily with no issues."—R. Duron

    Price: $15.97 (available in two colors)

    9. A vegetable chopper, because cutting onions is basically torture. The four interchangeable blades let you julienne, chop and slice vegetables like a pro. It also collects all of your freshly chopped veggies in a convenient container. I don't know about you, but this gadget is begging someone to make the world's best pico de gallo.

    A reviewer's

    Promising review: "I love cooking but have terrible knife skills, so was excited to try this out. Works like a charm! Onions still made my eyes burn but it chopped it so fast that I could run away before it got bad haha. It didn’t work as well with some wilted green onions, but wasn’t a problem. Made chopping a breeze and was easy to clean, which made meal prepping go by soooo fast! Love this new kitchen toy of mine."—Jane

    Price: $23.97

    10. An indoor electric grill that'll keep you grilling and chilling all summer long. This mini grill can serve up to six of your favorite people (and probably two of your least favorite). Plus, the nonstick trays can be easily removed and tossed in the dishwasher.

    Promising review: "Seriously, I love this grill. Recently moved into city and can't use my grill so thought I'd give this a try. Man, it's amazing how well this works considering what it is and what it costs. I really can't see why anyone would have ANYTHING negative to say about it. No, it's not a Traeger Grill and clearly has its limits but take a look at the photos of the first two meals I cooked on it... they looked fantastic and tasted even better. Seriously, if you've been on the fence about this grill get off and just buy it. You won't be disappointed."—AdventureChuck

    Price: $39.63+ (available in five styles)

    11. A 12-piece colored knife set so you can bring a pop of color to your kitchen. These vibrant stainless steel blades come with a convenient nonstick color coating helps prevent food from sticking. Get ready to become the next Iron Chef with this world-class knife set!

    The rainbow knives

    What's included: six knives, six matching knife covers. Knives include: paring knife, utility knife, Santoku knife, carving knife, chef’s knife, and bread knife.

    Promising review: "I purchased this set for my wife as a gift. We have several sets considering i am a knife enthusiast. Yes i purchase kives CRKT, Buck, Spyderco and others. In this case the color caught my eye and who can possibly complain about the price point. These knive are fun looking, they are very light and comfortable in the hand. They are very sharp, and because they color coded you can designate there use. I would probably not cut through hot or warm foods as someone mentioned the color may come off. These sharpen well and cut through foods like butter. I haven't been disappointed by this srt yet. I do recommend them if you can afford the cost."—Luis

    Price: $16.46

    12. A nonstick silicone baking mat so you can prep to compete on the next season of The Great British Baking Show. You'll be able to ditch the oil, cooking sprays and parchment paper with these innovative baking mats. Pro tip: try to let the cookie dough make it into the oven before eating it off the pan.

    A reviewer's silicone baking mat on a baking sheet with cookie dough spread out

    Promising review: "I didn’t think it would make a difference to use this mat or to use parchment paper. I was wrong. These make all the difference in the world. I’ve made the same recipe for years and when I tried these mats the cookies actually came out better! Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. Would definitely recommend these."—Rev. Bull

    Price: $13.44+ (available in three styles, three pack sizes, and three designs)

    13. A pair of silicone microwave mats, because if it was on Shark Tank, it's *add-to-cart* worthy. Grab hot dishes with confidence with a heat-resistant mat. Once you start using them, you'll wonder how you ever got by without them!

    Person holding the pot's handle with the gripper

    Promising review: "I have a few sets of these Safe Grabs I purchased from another source. So glad I found these again on Amazon as I wanted a couple of different colors. They are my Go-To mats to use on my dining room table for under hot dishes. I also leave a large one in my microwave so it is always available to lift hot dishes or even simply to catch any spilled liquid. I put them in the dishwasher to clean, but also spot wipe up with a wet sponge if I spill my tea in the morning."—Kim K Alfano

    Price: $27.95 (available in two colors)

    14. A storage container lid organizer, so you never have to wonder where all the lids to your leftover bins went! Store square and circle lids then toss in a cabinet for the perfect out-of-sight storage solution.

    A reviewer's food container lid organizer

    Promising review: "This product does exactly what it is supposed to and does it well. In under 15 minutes I took my nightmare lid drawer and turned it into a functional, convenient storage space. The dividers were simple to install and provided flexibility. Slowly but surely I am getting my tiny, chaotic kitchen under control, and this got me a huge leap closer."—S. Hawthorn

    Price: $13.55+ (available in four sizes and two designs)

    15. A stainless-steel compost bin for a chic and sustainable way to discard your biodegradables. But what about the smell? Is I'm sure what you just thought to yourself. This bin comes with a charcoal filter to trap and control unwanted odors. You can also easily wash it with soap and water for clean compost!

    The compost bin

    What's included: one spare charcoal filter.

    Promising review: "I bought this over a year and a half ago. I just realized I should clean the filter. I rinsed it and let it dry in the sun before inserting it back in, even though the unit came with a spare filter. I have never had a problem with smell or rust. I often forget to empty the canister into my compost bin outside. If it goes for several days, things get moldy and stick to the inside. Then I have to scrub the inside. I am now buying another one for a relative who admired mine. My only complaint is that the lid is hard to open with one hand."—Patty B

    Price: $21.95+ (available in two colors)

    16. A 14-piece knife set , so you can keep your chopping skills sharp! Every kitchen needs a top-notch knife set, and especially ones that comes with a seriously sharp pair of scissors. Tip: when buying sharp knives, buy a box of BandAids — just in case!

    A reviewer's knife set in a wooden block on a kitchen counter

    What's included: one pine wood block, one pair of scissors, six 4.5-inch steak knives, one pair of kitchen shears, one sharpener, and wood block and 11 knives: one 8-inch chef's knife, one 8-inch slicing knife, one 8-inch bread knife, one 5.5-inch utility knife, and one 3.5-inch peeling knife.

    Promising review: "I've had these for 6 months. They're still the sharpest knives I've ever had and I haven't even had to sharpen them since I opened them. They arrived almost scary-sharp. Like, the paring knife can easily cut a tomato in seconds without squishing it. We love these knives. Love love love love love. Didn't expect the quality to be anywhere near as good as it ended up being."—Jobeth Carlton

    Price: $38.03

    17. A foldable stainless steel drying rack that'll help you air dry your dishes. The best part? It folds up into a perfectly compact roll for easy storage. Don't need it for drying? How about for cooling racks! Pop your freshly baked cakes straight from the oven and on to the rack to chill., Amazon

    Promising review: "Great product! We just remodeled our kitchen and with our new sink, I love how I can wash dishes and lay them over the sink to dry, and not have to use a dry towel that adds another step (laundry) to my dish washing or takes up space on my counter. When you don’t want it out, it rolls up nicely, but looks good enough to just leave till you need it."—Jessica

    Price: $15.99

    18. An egg cooker, because you deserve to have perfectly cooked eggs with minimal effort. Make up to six eggs in soft, medium, or hard boiled firmness. Simplicity is key, just set the timer for you desired amount of eggs, and then let the auto-shut off function prevent any overcooking. It's eggcellent! (sorry, not sorry!),

    Promising review: "If you are on the fence about getting one of these, GET ONE. It really is as easy as it sounds to have a perfectly cooked egg, no guesswork. If you're particular about egg yolks like me and like them soft but not runny or raw, I've attached an image of a perfectly soft boiled egg that was cooked as directed (I timed it, this one was 11 mins. You don't have to time it at all as the buzzer will go off, just for reference). Just have an ice bath ready next to the cooker and let the eggs sit for a minute or two in there...peels come right off :) Makes healthy eating a breeze in the morning! Where has this been all my life!??!?"—Rebecca

    Price: $17.99+ (available in five colors)

    19. A coffee pod carousel for keeping your K-Cups at arm's reach at all times. The lazy Susan style allows you to easily rotate to choose your favorite flavor. When it comes to caffeine there is no margin for error. You need it quick and convenient!

    A reviewer's coffee pod carousel

    Promising review: "We purchased this for the office at work. There's only a small space and just having the boxes out was a mess. I found this and it was perfect. As you can see in the photo, it's about as tall as the coffee machine but not nearly as wide and bulky. It's definitely a space saver! It holds the perfect amount of K-cups. It's very sturdy and it came assembled. The carousel turns beautifully. We've had it about six months and haven't had any issues. I highly recommend this product."—Danielle Clay

    Price: $19.99+ (available in three sizes)

    20. Or a coffee pod drawer organizer for when you hide your pods as opposed to displaying them. Set it underneath your Keurig for sleek storage with a coffee shop feel. Organize the rows from strongest to weakest brews, decaf – or never mind, what's the point of decaf. Just make it cute, make it convenient and make it full of caffeine!

    Promising review: "It’s very nice out of the box with good quality materials, appears sturdy and well made. The glass has a slightly dark tint. It has rollers on the bottom which allow the unit with the Keurig in top, to slide back and forth to allow you to top off the water in the Keurig, then slide back and out of the way. The K-Cups rest nicely in the drawers. The unit is pretty big so make sure you have space. It would be nice if the drawer itself was on rollers for a smoother open/close."—Virginia

    Price: $34.99 (available in four sizes)

    21. A set of eight fridge organizers, so you can make your fridge look as supremely clean as Khloe Kardashian's. Seriously, her fridge is more inspiring than any Pinterest board. Fit food of any size with four big drawers and four smaller drawers. Get ready to stare at your fridge all day long!

    A reviewer's fridge storage containers inside a fridge

    Promising review: "Love this item, what a lifesaver! My fridge was so cramped and it was hard to maneuver around and find things. The bins are decent size, sturdy, and easy to clean and use. Its a nice way to keep things organized in the fridge/cabinet. Would recommend!"—Rykel Knighton

    Price: $29.99

    22. A scrub brush with a storage tray for cleaning your dirty dishes in style. This brush dispenses your soap for supremely clean dishes without all the hassle. In a rush? Get this brush!

    A reviewer's scrub brush with suds in a pan

    Promising review: "Best hand-scrubber I’ve owned. Really convenient to grab this and quickly wash some dishes. And the little caddy tray thing is surprisingly functional. It doesn’t look tacky or out of place sitting on the sink. The tray is rubbery on the bottom, which keeps it from sliding around. The soap-release button really shoots quite the stream. This soap blasting action does have the potential to go through soap quicker than some other hand-scrubbers I’ve owned, but I kind of like how you don’t need to keep pressing the button. The only other notable thing is that you do have to put the scrubber in the caddy somewhat delicately. Otherwise, you may get a bristle bent out of place. Not a deal-breaker by any means, but worth mentioning."—Mike Allen

    Price: $9.99

    23. A mandoline slicer that'll help you slice vegetables in a flash. Slice, julienne, matchstick, dice, and more for easy meal prep, with 30 different preset cuts and a variety of thickness options. This finger-saver is designed to keep hands and fingers away from blades, for an easier, safer way to slice!

    Promising review: "This is the best product for chopping/slicing veggies. I love it. So easy to use and clean up is so easy. I have three others that I never use because it’s so much trouble and they don’t work as well. This is worth the money. I sliced all the veggies for a salad in about one minute. Three thumbs up."—Eve

    Price: $42.74 (available in seven colors)

    24. An adjustable drawer divider for organizing your cutlery or junk drawer. Never search for that roll of tape or pair of tongs again with this sectioned off organizer. You'll never look at an empty drawer the same way ever again.

    Reviewer using the organizer for their tea packets

    Promising review: "We're doing a kitchen remodel and I want my kitchen to be beautiful and functional. I'm sick of the "junk" drawer being a mess, where I can't find things, even with one organizer already in place. These Adjustable Dividers, are deep and stack nicely in the deeper drawers. The dividers are not as secure as I'd like, but they work. If they had a function of "locking" or snapping more firmly down to create the divisions, they'd be even better! I highly recommend these dividers. They are a great addition to my new kitchen and have solved an annoying problem. Thank you"—Lisa Linn M.S. Ed.

    Price: $20.97+ (available in two sizes)

    25. A pack of flexible cutting boards, so you can chop all of your ingredients on separate boards, if you're into that type of thing. After chopping, slicing or dicing your food, get ready to then easily pass them into your bowl with no overflow. These boards are are flexible enough to be bent end-to-end for easy, no-spill transfer of food from counter top to pot or pan!

    Reviewer's picture of the rainbow cutting boards with five-star caption "love, love, love these! I've bought two sets for myself and a set for my mom"

    Promising review: "Nice to have multiple cutting boards without taking up much space. Much easier to swap when moving from meat to veg and avoiding any cross contamination. They are quite thin and felt as though I’d cut through into the counter tops, but that didn’t happen. The other nice benefit compared to a normal board is that you can easily roll and pour contents into a bowl or pot."—PF

    Price: $5.69 (available in two pack sizes)

    26. A 17-piece silicone utensil set, because no kitchen is complete without all of the utensil essentials. You can never have too many spatulas or spoons – just think about all the pancakes you will flip and brownie batters you will stir. A comprehensive set is a must!

    A reviewer's kitchen utensil set on a kitchen counter

    Promising review: "I was in desperate need of new utensils and this set is perfect! They are not dishwasher safe, which is the only thing I would change about them. I think you could get away with putting them in the dishwasher, but the wood would fade quicker. I have just been washing with dish soap and trying not to get the wood handles too wet. So far they have been easy to clean and a great addition to my kitchen! I avoid hand washing dishes at all costs but these take literal seconds to clean."—Morgan Steele

    Price: $23.99+ (available in six colors)

    27. A cabinet turntable organizer for organizing all your spices, supplements and anything else you feel the need to spin in a circle while choosing. It's the ideal kitchen organizer!

    A reviewer's cabinet turntable organizer

    Promising review: "This really is exactly what I was hoping for. It fits a lot more than you expect it will. It spins very smoothly and appears to be well made out of strong material. I had a little trouble pulling it open to the tallest setting. I had to use little tongs to grasp it. That did work. I wanted the tallest setting for our jumbo Costco vitamins. You need a taller shelf opening for that if you want to also use the top shelf. I’m very pleased with this purchase."—Lisa

    Price: $17.99

    28. A stainless steel bread box, because bread is a necessity and deserves the chicest of storage options. Bonus: it comes with a free butter dish – because what else goes best with bread – and an e-book full of bread serving suggestions. Somebody get Oprah on the phone, because she would love this!

    A reviewer's white stainless steel bread box

    Promising review: "I wanted a bread box that would look nice on my counter, (the cream color blends in nicely with my counter) but that would also hold all of the bread products we use! (we eat a lot of bread)! This fits the bill perfectly! I also like the hinged lid versus a lift off lid. (where do you put the lid when you have a crowded counter?) I was pleased with how well it was packaged (worried about dents in the delivery process) but it arrived unblemished!! The added butter dish was a nice plus (I will use it for cheese) and the e-book looks like it has a few nice recipes I might try! All and all, a very positive experience and purchase!"—Patricia L. Paul

    Price: $29.49+ (available in three colors)
