    1. A microwave steamer for fish and vegetables that actually makes eating both healthily and lazily completely attainable.

    2. A potato-scrubbing brush with a little point to help remove the eyes, so you can get your baked potato in the oven or microwave lickety-split.

    3. An everything-avocado-tool to make quick work of the third avocado-toast-for-dinner you're making this week.

    4. And an avocado saver so you can have peace of mind that the second half won't go to waste.

    5. A microwave cooker that completely cooks your ramen in three minutes flat.

    6. A rolling garlic peeler because you know that garlic's the best way to flavor even the simplest dinners but don't want to spend ages picking papery skins off the cloves.

    7. A clip-on pasta strainer so you can be one step closer to eating — no pouring the pasta into the colander *then* pouring it back into the pan. Just pour once.

    8. And a set of three jar openers that will make sure nothing stands between you and your favorite jar of pasta sauce.

    9. Oh, and a handheld spiralizer because some nights you might want to sneak a few more veggies into your pasta and parm with butter.

    10. A multifunctional cooking utensil that can work as a slotted spoon, solid spoon, scraping spatula, and turner — whatever you need from it in the moment.

    11. An egg separator perfect for making a quick batch of cloud eggs to top your toast.

    12. A collapsible microwave cover to prevent yesterday's leftovers from making a mess all over the place when you go to heat them up.

    13. A box of slow cooker liners that can make a Crockpot meal even easier, as if that were ever possible: it minimizes cleanup (just toss it when you're finished) and lets you cook two dishes at once.

    14. A pair of herb scissors that seem superfluous at first, until you use them to chop the green part of scallions.

    15. A clip-on pair of lobster-like claws to balance your spoon over the heating pot of your favorite canned soup.

    16. A pineapple gadget that cores, peels, and slices with just a few easy twists so you don't have to pay marked-up prices for the pre-cut stuff.

    17. Of course, an easy-to-use basic can opener with a classic, time-tested design.

    18. And for dessert: a pack of four pre-portioned microwave mug cake mixes that need only water or milk and are ready in just a couple of minutes.
