    We got a couple of these trays for Christmas along with bartending tools and I use these on a daily basis for my iced coffee, while my husband loves them for fancy cocktails!

    Promising review: "The silicone is sturdy enough to keep its shape, but flexible enough to easily pop out the cubes. It’s the perfect size to fit into an Old Fashioned glass, or to add a couple to a pint glass. I love that since the cube is large, it melts slowly."—Target reviewer

    Price: $9.99

    A yellow citrus juicer squeezing a lime

    Promising review: "I wish I would have purchased this sooner. We use a lot of fresh limes and lemons in cooking and now my hands don’t hurt from squeezing. This is made for lemons so when I use for limes we sometimes have to tilt to pour out extra juice from side angle."—Target reviewer

    Price: $16.99

    We received the mixer and attachments from our wedding registry for exactly this purpose! It's so easy to mix the flour and eggs in the bowl of the mixer and then just roll through the attachments for easy fettuccine. Such a fun weekend project!

    Promising review: "Wonderful attachment!! I’ve used the hand cranked pasta makers in the past which make a great pasta without having to knead the dough by hand. But, they rarely stay in place while feeding the dough through and cranking at the same time. This KitchenAid attachment is the best of both worlds. So easy to install and fun to use! The clean up was a breeze, too. All I needed to do was wipe with a damp cloth. I don’t think my family will ever want to eat store-bought pasta again."—Target reviewer

    Price: $199.99

    A coffee maker with two options for a full pot and the single-cup brewing

    Promising review: "My coffee pot gives me life! I have never been one to hop on the K-cup train. I am now with this new coffee pot! I love the carafe for the regular morning brews for my husband and me. I love the K-Cup side for the afternoon cup of coffee. I love the Starbucks K-Cups and Gevalia K-Cups. I just love coffee so much that I only drink it black! That being said, those who are like me and understand the need for a very good coffee maker. This is it hands-down. I loved it so much that I bought it as a gift to my sister. She and her family love it as well. No issues at all with the unit. I recommend this 1,000%."—Target reviewer

    Red 6 quart case iron enamel dutch oven with trivet

    Promising review: "To put it simply, I love this piece! I never knew how much I needed a dutch oven until I bought this one. I use it all the time for soups and chili and my husband loves when I make sausage gravy for breakfast and I can easily do it all in just this pot. And the color is an added bonus, I just leave it right on one of the shelves in our kitchen 1. Because it’s so cute and 2. Because I just use it that often that it’s nice to have handy. I think it’s a great starter dutch oven for any beginner kitchen."—Target reviewer

    Promising review: "I recently moved into an apartment with a kitchen with hardly any counter or shelves to store my kitchen stuff. Bought this on a whim and I love it. I’m pretty pathetic when it comes to putting things together, but this was surprisingly pretty easy to put together! I’ve using it to store some of my kitchen appliances like my Crock-Pot, toaster, etc. I’m even thinking of buying another one to use as a mini pantry."—Target reviewer

    Promising review: "This is such a wonderful little vacuum for the price! It's just what we needed. The suction is great and it's lightweight and easy to use. Yes, you need to hold down the On button to keep the vacuum running which is a slight annoyance, but for the price I'll gladly deal with it.

He likes it because it's easy to use, easy to clean, and his coffee tastes great.
