    22 Things From Target You’ll Wish You Had Bought For Your Kitchen Sooner

    No chance of buyer's remorse — but definitely a possibility for some "why-didn't-I buy-this-years-ago" remorse.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed collects a share of sales and/or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A 30-piece kitchen utensil set to ensure you always have *just* the tool you need for any cooking job. From measuring to mixing to flipping, consider all of your kitchen tasks complete.

    2. A DeLonghi espresso machine with a milk frother so you can craft your own lattes, cappuccinos, and other specialty coffees right from your kitchen. Chef's kiss...or should I say, barista's kiss?

    3. An extendable drying rack that's much better looking than your rusty old wire one and will be more functional in your space, to boot. Plus, it has a spout, so any excess water will go back into the sink, instead of leaking over the sides.

    4. A lemon-print comfort mat, because dishes are — sadly — never ending. This cheery mat will help keep your feet comfortable while scrub-a-dub-dubbing.

    5. A set of adorable peach wall decals that'll brighten up your kitchen's walls without requiring you to cover every square inch, the way traditional wallpaper would. Ah, an ode the the best time of year — peach season.

    6. A wire lid organizer so you can fit all of your unwieldy cookware in your tiny kitchen cabinets, no sweat. Getting one of these is literally the only reason I don't lose it every time I need to find a lid for a specific pot.

    7. A KitchenAid stand mixer that's obviously gorgeous, but will also allow you to fully master any number of baking tasks. This textured green beauty was designed in collaboration with Joanna Gaines, has a ~magical~ 10 speeds, and is ready to be your sous chef at any moment.

    8. A 15-piece nonstick cookware set so you don't have to wrestle with burnt-on egg, over-caramelized sauces, or anything else for hours after cooking. Better yet, the cookware comes with nonstick-friendly spatulas and spoons to ensure they don't scratch.

    9. A gooseneck smart kettle that — get this — has an app, so you can schedule it to boil water for your morning pour-over or tea at just the right temperature, the second you wake up.

    10. A two-tier lazy Susan so you can *actually* reach all of your spiced and condiments without having to get shoulder-deep in the pantry. Always a recipe for disaster.

    11. A Ninja blender to effortlessly crush ice, blend the smoothest of smoothies, and craft delightful milkshakes. I have a Ninja blender and just this week, I used it to make salsa in about three pulses — it's that powerful. Better yet, it's also dishwasher safe.

    12. A Sodastream sparkling water maker so you can literally have a seltzer in your hand at a moment's notice, any time. Nuff said.

    13. A Cuisinart air fryer and toaster oven with over 3,500 5-star reviews and counting, from folks who love its efficiency and versatility. It has seven settings — including air fry, broil, and bake. And for a countertop appliance, it jsut doesn't get much more handsome than this stainless-steel beaut.

    14. A bottle of Mike’s Hot Honey because its sweet and spicy flavor profile has made it a unique crowd favorite. It's great on everything from pizza and sandwiches to ice cream and brownies, so get some and get creative.

    15. A four-pack of peel-and-stick subway tile backsplash that's especially perfect for renters who want to upgrade the look of their range, but aren't exactly in the position to retile. Behold, your solution!

    16. A bread maker because its name says it all. Just pop in your ingredients, choose from its 12 settings, and enjoy the spoils of its self-kneading, rising, and baking prowess. (Psst... it also has a gluten-free setting!)

    17. A 10-piece Rachael Ray nonstick baking set for all of your muffin, cake, and pie, and loaf-baking needs. Love a set that can step up your baking game in an instant.

    18. A faucet filtration system because opening the fridge, only to find that filtered pitcher empty, is a bummer. Forget about that — you have fresh water from the spout now!

    19. A Mr. Coffee iced coffee maker so you can ditch the hot stuff in favor of an icy glass of heaven every morning (without spending $5 at a coffee shop).

    20. An electric wine bottle opener, because breaking a cork is a huge bummer — as is struggling with a manual opener while everyone at your dinner party watches you.

    21. A wood cookbook holder so finally, at long last, you can refer to a recipe while stirring, sautéing, and frying without spilling food all over your cookbook. If you love to use recipes from a physical copy of a book, this is a must-have.

    22. A drawer utensil organizer, because it's probably time to replace the one you got for your first-ever apartment, that's currently cracked, stained, and who knows what else.
