    1. A stainless steel rolling pin with adjustable discs so you can roll out your cookies to the perfect thickness while watching The Office for the 7th time.

    You can adjust the roller to six different heights. And because the roller is metal, you can pop it in the freezer for easier (non-sticky) rolling. The colder pastry is, the happier (and tastier) it is!

    Promising Review: "Wow. Where have you been all my life! Easy to roll to a uniform thickness. Dishwasher safe. Great cool temperature for rolling pastry. Much more sanitary than a wooden rolling pin. Brilliant! Couldn't recommend more highly." β€”Layne Murphy

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    2. A stainless steel butter slicer to chop and dice the good stuff with ease. The only thing that could be easier than running a knife through butter is running multiple knives through butter simultaneously.

    Promising Review: "One day, as I was in a baking mood, I thought I would try to make slices to put in a mix where you use butter pieces and not just throw the stick in, making mixing more consistent. Now I can't imagine baking without it!!! For pie shells, where you really want smaller pieces, I just slice the butter, turn the sliced stick over and slice again. I can even go one more time if I want those tiny squares! The butter can go back to the freezer like this if I want the butter perfectly frozen." β€”A.D.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.49.

    3. A decorative pie crust impression mat that will cut down annoying decorating time and still impress your judgmental grandma. Smooshing dough is much easier than braiding dough. That's just a fact.,

    The silicone mold has three classic designs and is dishwasher safe.

    Promising Review: "Works wonders! Super easy to use and mold. I was a little worried about how hard it might be to get the dough out before it arrived. However, there wasn’t anything to worry about! This mold can give you a pretty design for your crust in just seconds! Definitely worth the money." β€”Crystal Hoover

    Get it from Amazon for $11.59.

    4. An apple peeler to peel, core, AND slice your apples in seconds! No more staring wide-eyed at a pile of apples knowing there are miles to go before you eat pie.

    The peeler is crank-operated and made of cast-iron. Peeling is activated with the flick of a switch, so you also have the option to only core and slice apples if you need a quick lil snack!

    Promising Review: "This thing is amazing. It works nearly effortlessly. The suction cup is ridiculous. The peeling function is perfect, the slicing and coring is perfect, and it seems solid and well built. I asked my wife, 'So you would give it 5 stars?' and she replied, "I would give it 12 stars!" That was directly after she had cut up 7 apples in 5 minutes or so..." β€”Jake & Kelly

    Get it from Amazon with a suction base for $16.96 or a clamp base for $24.55.

    5. A silicone muffin pan so you don't have to line every stinkin' divot with paper or even remember to buy liners in the first place. Remembering things is for overachievers.

    Silicone pans are non-stick and make for a far easier cleanup than a traditional, clunky muffin tin!

    Promising Review: "I've never used silicone for baking and I don't know why I waited so long! I hate using a metal pan for muffins and cupcakes because they never come fully clean! This is the solution! I loved how easily my muffins popped right out of the pan and then it washed up so clean so easily. Now I just need to get a mini one! :)" β€”Deb

    Get it for 12 regular-sized muffins (pictured on the left) or 24 mini muffins (pictured on the right) from Amazon for $9.99 (available in blue and pink).

    6. A silicone baking mat that contains floury mess and turns the hour of post-baking cleaning time into an hour of post-baking nap time.

    The mat also has handy measurements for rolling and cutting. Talk about effortless uniformity!

    Promising Review: "I love this product. Making dough is so much easier with its silicone surface. I can now accurately gauge the size of my pie dough with the easy to see pie width diagram located clearly on the mat. Clean up is a breeze. Some warm soapy water, a quick rinse, and it's done. Very easy to store by just rolling up the mat. I highly recommend this product." β€”Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    7. A cake pan liner with handles so you can pluck your cake up like the delicate angel it is instead of running around the edge of the pan with a knife until the sun explodes and engulfs us all.

    They're non-stick, oven safe, and available in a variety of sizes for both round and square pans.

    Promising Review: "I wish I had known about these pre-cut parchment papers years ago! I LOVE to bake, but really become unhappy when my baking efforts turn into an unappealing mess because I can't get the baked goods nicely out of the pan. These are perfect! It was so smart to have the handles, because that really does help a lot." β€”Sunnyside

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in four sizes, round and square, and in a combo pack).

    8. An adjustable measuring cup that squeegees out its contents and laughs in the face of sticky liquids. Oh, you think it's gonna be hard to measure honey for sticky buns? YOU'RE WRONG, KAREN.

    The large design holds up to 2 cups and the mini design holds up to 1/8 cup. Both are dishwasher safe because ain't nobody got time to hand-wash dirty peanut butter dishes.

    Promising Review: "Excellent OXO quality in an adjustable measuring cup especially made for sticky items such as peanut butter, honey, yogurt and other gooey ingredients. I use this almost every day and will probably get another one as an extra to have on hand. It gets every bit of sticky ingredients out of the cup and it's dishwasher safe. A must for any kitchen, especially for bakers." β€”E. Deland

    Get it from Amazon: the two-cup measure for $11.99 or the mini size for $5.

    9. A bench scraper which makes quick work of getting icing dangerously smooth. You legally have to put a yellow caution sign next to your cake so nobody slips.

    A bench scraper is a true multi-tool and can also help you maintain laziness during a number of other kitchen tasks such as chopping vegetables, transferring food into a pot, or cutting dough.

    Get it on Amazon for $9.85.

    10. A set of spring-loaded cookie and pie crust cutters that give you cookie pleasure at the touch of a button!

    It comes in a set of four, and animal cracker cookie cutters are also available.

    Promising Review: "These little guys are perfect for pie crusts! I loved the leaf design for Thanksgiving, and cannot wait to use the others. The leaves turned out perfectly for my crust, and the plunger makes it easy to pop out the dough without ruining your design in a way that cookie cutters alone cannot. I had made a pie before these arrived and free-handed some leaves but have to say the effort was truly amateurish in comparison. My pie looked professional and won hearts, minds, and stomachs." β€”Rachel C.

    Get them from Amazon for $8.55+.

    11. An electric citrus juicer for those days when you're craving lemon bars but don't want to stress out your delicate forearms. Rest easy, forearms. That's all in the past now.,

    All of the juice is filtered into a dishwasher safe, easy-pour container for even more laziness! There's even a pulp-level adjuster so you can make the bougiest choice of all: how much pulp you want in your juice.

    Promising Review: "This is an easy to use, easy to clean citrus juicer that I wish I had bought 25 years ago! It is versatile and will juice small fruit like limes or large fruit such as Meyer lemons and even relatively small grapefruit. It is well made and requires only a small space for storage. I will be buying oranges by the bag to have fresh juice. Probably my favorite small appliance." β€”Auntie Em

    Get it from Amazon for $16.96.

    12. A jam maker that stirs and cooks all on its own and is sure to earn you maximum praise for minimal effort. Bow down mortals, I made this delectable jam myself!

    The pot is non-stick, and all settings are pre-programmed. It truly could not be any easier.

    Promising Review: "Best thing I have purchased in quite some time. Some folks say it is the lazy way to do jam and jelly. GOOD!" β€”rtrehman

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95.

    13. A cookie gun to effortlessly pipe your bakes into impressive, intricate designs. Hands up! Lemme put a cookie in your mouth.,

    The gun comes with 14 unique plates and six piping tips for limitless cookie creativity.

    Promising Review: "I ordered this press for my husband who wanted to learn how to make the Christmas Spritz cookies his mother has baked for him for over 47 years. He hasn't ever used a cookie press and his very first batch turned out perfect! He made many more sets and gave them away as Christmas presents with rave reviews from all recipients. This is a sturdy press and clean up and storage are a breeze. Well worth the price." β€”J. Mix

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

    14. A strawberry huller for plucking the unmentionables from strawberries without having to cut off the entire top. You think I'm being lazy? I think you're being wasteful.


    The huller isn't sharp like a knife, so feel free to let your kids take over strawberry duty. Score. It's also dishwasher safe.

    Promising Review: "This thing is just AWSOME. If you're wondering if it looks a little nutty, silly, and lazy to buy something to remove the strawberry stems, you're right, but this is the niftiest little gadget and makes really short (and neat) work of removing the stems. Much less waste and they look more appetizing too." β€”CharlieTheDog

    Get it on Amazon for $4.64.

    15. An iPad and cookbook stand that lets you gaze lovingly at your recipes without having to pull up the right page over and over again like a version of Groundhog Day oddly set in a bakery.


    The stand comes in a few different designs, some of which have baking conversions on them for whenever you need to avoid some math (all the time)!

    Promising Review: "This is a really great looking tablet holder and cookbook stand. It holds my iPad or cookbook up and at the perfect angle to look at while I'm cooking or baking. It folds flat for easy storage and has a hole in the handle that can be used for hanging it up. I just leave it sitting out on my counter because it looks so cool, and I'll be using it a lot." β€”Wilhelmina Zeitgeist

    Get it on Amazon for $21.19+ (available in four cute designs!).

    Ready, set...
