    2. A Brita filter pitcher so you can have access to fresh, clean water whenever you want it — no tinny aftertaste, gross film, or harmful residues included.

    3. A countertop compost caddy with a super-strong seal, so you can transform your food waste into something useful but without a stinky kitchen or the risk of fruit flies.

    4. A set of storage containers with easy-find lids that snap together so you'll never spend like, 15 minutes searching for a matching lid ever again.

    5. And a lid organizer to take your container storage from "random, unstable pile of plastic" to "actually organized and usable."

    6. A Nespresso machine that perfectly makes both coffee *and* espresso. This basically means that you'll never need to go into a coffee shop again.

    7. A set of nonslip mixing bowls so even the most vigorous whiskers won't be betrayed by a bowl that slides all around while you're just trying to make some whipped cream.

    8. A NutriBullet Pro with a stronger motor to tackle nuts, seeds, and hard fruits with ease, but still with all the convenience and portability of the original.

    9. An OXO clip set that'll help keep pretty much any package at ~Maximum Freshness~ — from the biggest Costco-sized bag of chips to the last few slices of bread.

    10. A bake-and-store Pyrex set so your cake, cobbler, and lasagna comes with storage included right out of the oven. It's great for leftovers, or transporting to a potluck without the worry of a spill or a smoosh.

    11. An Instant Pot Duo that is actually misnamed because it is more of a septet than a duo — aka the SAT-word way of saying that instead of two functions, it has seven (pressure cooking, rice cooking, slow cooking, yogurt making, steaming, sautéing and food warming). And it performs all of them flawlessly!

    12. A stoneware coffee canister that quite literally does what it says on the tin. (Get it? Because it says "coffee" and it...holds coffee.)

    13. A berry bin because the circulation helps keep them fresher for longer, and any minute you can add to the lifespan of your strawberries is basically worth its weight in gold.

    14. A mini waffle maker so you can have perfect tiny waffles whenever your heart desires. Plus, they're great for breakfast meal prep — you can freeze these and toast them up in the morning just like an Eggo.

    15. A self-sharpening knife set that doesn't just promise to stay sharp, it ensures it with a knife sharpener built right into the block.

    16. Or a knife sharpener, for those who already have a nice set of knives — or thought they did, until they started struggling to cut through a tomato without pulverizing it. That'll have them back to their former glory in just a few swipes.

    17. An egg cooker to totally transform your breakfasts and lunches. Just pour in water, wait, and then be rewarded with eggs cooked just how you like them.

    18. An airtight food storage container set because with food prices as high as they are, you don't want to lose anything to mold or staleness, or accidentally share some with a mouse. Your food is for you!

    19. An electric kettle because boiling water on the stove or in the microwave is just not the ~vibe.~ A kettle is faster, more efficient, and doesn't horrify Europeans. Plus, you can use it for noodles, soup, tea, hot chocolate, and much more.

    20. A pack of stretch-to-fit food covers that are way more convenient than wrestling with a roll of plastic wrap — and way easier to wash and reuse, to boot!

    21. A set of warp-resistant baking sheets because trying to use a warped baking sheet is a ~recipe~ for disaster (and uneven cooking).

    22. A cold-brew maker so you can literally make your morning java in your sleep. Just set it up before you go to bed, and you'll be rewarded with delicious, smooth coffee in the morning.

    23. A motion activated trash can that's perfect for messy cooks who want to toss a quick wrapper without getting the entire kitchen covered in flour somehow.

    24. A citrus squeezer because the worst way to discover you have a cut is when you're squeezing a lemon. Plus, it'll get way more juice out than your weak little paws ever could.

    25. A slow cooker that's perfect for chilly fall evenings. There's no better feeling than coming home when there's a nip in the air and immediately smelling a gorgeous pot roast that's been falling apart all day.
