    21 Kitchen Products That Have More Than One Function

    Might as well get rid of all those pointless, unitasker kitchen gadgets you own.

    1. An Instant Pot for becoming your new go-to kitchen gadget — this thing is a pressure cooker, a slow cooker, a rice cooker, a steamer, a warmer, and a sauté all in one. So it's more than happy to take your cravings and churn them out quickly.

    2. A two-piece strainer and bowl set for pouring in, let's say, some yummy al dente pasta, lifting the strainer and letting the bowl catch the water, pouring the water into the sink (or using it to make some sauce with your leftover pasta water), and using the whole set as a colorful serving bowl.

    3. A 3-in-1 breakfast station to make prepping the most important meal of the day quicker, and a heck ton cooler-looking — I would buy one of these just to make my kitchen look more exciting, TBH.

    4. A pair of silicone trivets that can be used as pot holders, spoon rests, jar openers, and large drink coasters — and come in a variety of fun colors so you can get ones that'll match your kitchen's aesthetic.

    5. A 3-in-1 avocado slicer for splitting, pitting, and slicing the green stuff known as nature's butter. Less time fanagling with silverware and more time eating avocado toast — win/win.

    6. A KitchenAid stand mixer with a wire whip, burnished flat beater, spiral dough hook, and pouring shield attachments to use in all of your baking adventures. But the fun doesn't stop there, you can purchase additional attachments like a spiralizer, a pasta roller/cutter, a slicer/shredder, a pasta press, and more!

    7. A salad spinner that'll make cleaning your greens and other produce as easy as the literal push of a button. Then you can lift up the colander, drain the water, put it back into the clear outer bowl, and voila, you have a pretty serving bowl as well!

    8. A rapid egg cooker for preparing a wide variety of eggs — hard-boiled, poached, scrambled, and omelets — how EGGciting!!!

    9. A veggie chopper to quickly chop, slice, dice, and spiralize your produce — you thought meal prepping was tedious, but now it's actually quite... enjoyable?!

    10. A 10-in-1 bar tool that'll turn your home into the one your friends all flock to on a Friday night, simply so they can watch you work your magic in making their favorite drinks with your new toy.

    11. A non-stick sectioned skillet for making all the different components of your meal in one convenient place, all on the same stove burner. My apologies to all of your other pans now feeling left out and under appreciated, sorry not sorry.

    12. An automatic bread machine to churn out, of course, delicious homemade bread loaves. But also cakes, pizza dough, jams, flatbreads, and croissants! Why trek out to your nearest bakery when you can turn your kitchen into the bakery?

    13. A coffee and tea press insulated travel mug that'll serve the double function of allowing you to whip up your favorite beverage on-the-go, while having a handy container to sip your drink.

    14. A mixing bowl set with lids and attachable graters to buy if one, you're in need of some A+ mixing bowls to whip up eggs and dessert mixes, and two, in need of some A+ graters — we're here to enhance your kitchen and save your wallet.

    15. A 5-in-1 tool that'll function as a slotted spoon, solid spoon, spatula, turner, and cutting tool because using multiple utensils at a time is soooo 2018.

    16. A 3-in-1 super pot you can practically replace your stove with because it can be used to grill, slow cook, steam, simmer, and serve... can your stove serve people while they're sitting at the table? Uh no it can't, point proven.

    17. A Dutch oven to use in a multitude of ways like stir-frying, deep-frying, slow-cooking, braising, making stews, simmering sauces, even whipping up homemade bread! Did I mention you can just pop this into the dishwasher when you're done. Because you can.

    18. A heavy-duty immersion hand blender that comes with a wire whisk attachment so you can not only whip up yummy smoothies, but you can stir up sauces, whip eggs, and so much more. Plus, each piece is small and easy to compactly store when not in use!

    19. A combination can and bottle opener that'll quickly open a can of nutritious veggies, and then you can reward yourself by opening a bottle of wine.

    20. A better batter tool to serve as a whisk while stirring up brownie, cake, and cookie batter, and scraping the good stuff off the bowl and into the pan without needing a separate utensil.

    21. A single-serve coffee bar that'll having you playing barista while you churn out hot coffee, iced coffees, lattes, espressos, and more — in the long run cheaper and quicker than the Starbucks drive-thru line.
