I've been using the recipes all week for dinner for myself and my omnivore husband, and we both approve on taste.

    Promising review: "Great and really sharp peeler. Just glazing on the surface with the bare minimum strength of forward motion and it would cut off the skin. The strip is quite thin compare to my old standard peeler. Family was so impressed that they wanted to order another one on the very same day I received the first one." —H. N.

    9. A four-pack of grapefruit spoons with serrated edges to scoop out the delicious insides of the best breakfast fruit in the world. We stan a tool making mornings easier.

    These are dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "Really nice! This set of grapefruit spoons is terrific. What no one mentions is that the handle is longer, and that's a big deal to me, because I tend to buy these super gigantic grapefruits, so I can really DIG IN and get ALL the fruit in one nice scoop, so I am extra HAPPY!" —Susie V Kaufman

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (originally $9).

    10. A two-pack of produce fresheners that'll extend the life of your precious fruits and veggies two to three times longer. All you need to do is toss 'em into the producer drawer in the fridge and let them work their magic.

    Promising review: "This product works so much better than I thought it would! Worth every penny. The little ethylene gas (produce lets off this gas and it speeds up its demise) absorbing packet goes into the apple and you just toss it in your product drawer. Easy peasy! This pack comes with two apples and enough packets to last a full year. I have had strawberries last over a week in the drawer (no fuzzy mold or squishy spots). This has resulted in less waste and I am sure that they have more than paid for themselves in food savings in just a couple of months. So glad I gave these a try." —Lisa C.

    Promising review: "Love using this when I pick wild grapes. So easy! I either can use it as a juicer or use it to make jelly. Makes it a breeze. It is lightweight, which I love. Easy to clean and looks awesome. Cannot wait for apple picking so I can get some fresh juice. Much better than having to fuss with strainers and cheesecloth." —J. Jayden

    Get it from Amazon for $87.99.

    Comes with seven interchangeable blades, four e-books filled with delish recipes, a lifetime warranty, and is easy to take apart for top-rack dishwashing.

    Promising review: "You're not going to find a better built, better functioning spiralizer anywhere! I wasn't planning on buying one — I started out just researching. After researching the various models and reading reviews, I thought 'I gotta get me one of those.' This is probably one of the best purchases I've ever made. My girlfriend just bought one two weeks ago and after seeing mine, said said there's no comparison. She's sending hers back!" —Marie Walker

    This is dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "I buy a bag of Valencia oranges every week and squeeze one for breakfast each morning. It's easy to use, and easy to clean. Also, I like that I can get pulp to put in my glass. This is more nutritious than buying bottled juice made from concentrate, and it's less acidic." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in two colors).

    15. A salad chopper and bowl to prep those fancy schmancy chopped salads you regretfully shell out $12 for, so now you can save $12 for something else and still enjoy a chopped salad.

    The stainless steel blades make cutting through veggies, fruit, cheese, and more super easy, plus the chopper has a soft, non-slip handle. The bowl rim helps serve as a rotating grip to use while chopping and can hold up to 5.5 quarts of delicious chopped salad. Both the bowl and the chopper are dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "This chopper works like magic. The combination of blade and large hardened plastic bowl makes chopping all kinds of ingredients together easy, even for this grandmother with arthritis in her hands." —coffee drinker

    Get it from Amazon for $23.49 (originally $24.99).

    16. A strawberry huller that'll help you remove the stem of the strawberry and create a perfect center for filling with Nutella — if you're gonna incorporate more fruit in your life, might as well do so with chocolate hazelnut goodness.

    This is top rack–dishwasher safe!

    Promising review: "Okay. I know this seems like a waste of money. I thought so too. Then I realized, you can use this and stuff strawberries with Nutella! I mean I also realized that because my son loves strawberries, this makes the process easier and wastes a lot less berry, and it makes the berries easier for him to grip. Plus, it is easy to clean. But mostly Nutella!" —Frank Paulino

    Get it from Amazon for $6.95.

    17. A melon baller for simply scooping into the fruit to make pretty melon garnishes, or just to feel all boujee while chomping down on a nutritious snack.

    It's made of durable stainless steel, and has a soft, comfy, non-slip grip. Plus, it's dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "I purchased this for making my kids fruit salads and fun treats. OXO always makes a quality product, and this follows suit. The handle is ergonomically comfortable, and sturdy. This will last a lifetime. The metal scoops are solid, yet thin enough to easily cut though any fruit." —Amazon Steve

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    18. A food storage container to make super good use out of when you want to bring a salad to work or school for lunch, but don't want your bag doing all the messy tossing. This makes it easy to separate the salad contents and the dressing so you can enjoy it the way you want it at lunchtime.

    Holds up to 4.7 cups of yummy salad ingredients, plus it boasts a 100% leak-proof guarantee thanks to its airtight seal lid. Includes one main container, one removable insert tray, and one dressing container. Made from stain- and odor-resistant materials, and is safe to use in the dishwasher, microwave, and freezer.

    Promising review: "This is the best salad storage container I have ever purchased. I can fit about 2–3 oz. of greens in the bottom and 2–4 toppings plus the perfect amount of dressing in the top and everything stays together under the leakproof lid. I travel to work via public transportation so it helps that the container itself doesn't add too much weight and the fact that it's rectangular rather than circular means it fits easily into a fairly small tote bag. Sometimes I transport it on its side if I need to carry more things in my tote and never once has it leaked. Since I bought this, I've been bringing salads for lunch every day instead of going to my local (and rather expensive) salad bar and that savings alone has made up for the price of the container. I have also brought it it my carry-on bag for a flight which allowed me to have a delicious and healthy lunch in flight rather than be subjected to airplane/airport food. I will definitely be ordering more of these. Thank you Rubbermaid for such a well-designed product!" —Witey

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    19. An apple/pear corer that'll make removal of those pesky fruit centers v easy, so you can eat the whole darn thing without worrying about when you're getting to the center.

    Made of high-quality stainless steel, and features a sharp blade for simple coring. Plus, it's dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "This is super easy to use, and it's a snap to clean. Very well-made, heavy-duty, and large enough that it's easy to get all the core in one try. You might waste a bit of apple, but not much, and if I want more I just core another one. I've had it for a few months and it gets used a lot. It shows no signs of wear, cleans up easily, and work great. I like it so much I ordered more as gifts." —hardly_b

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    20. A corn stripper for getting the kernels off the cob, which is especially useful if you or someone you love has braces and can't have corn on the cob. I remember those days, and wish I had this.

    Features durable, stainless steel blades to effortlessly strip the kernels. Plus, this is top rack dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "Someone I know is getting dental work done that makes eating corn directly off the cob difficult. Okay, it's me. This product is very easy to use, just twist as you pull the cob through the cutter and the corn falls right off. I love corn on the cob and now it's easier and neater than ever! I usually hate taking up space for something that only does one thing but I've made an exception for this item." —Jazzfan

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    21. A masher to use with your fave root vegetables and fruit, or to just tell yourself a potato is absolutely an acceptable vegetable and of course mashed potatoes are as much of a vegetable serving as broccoli (they're not, but I won't tell anyone your secrets).

    Made with a broad, stainless steel wire head, and cushioned non-slip handles. Plus, it's dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "I needed a real masher for making guacamole, and this fits the bill. Typical great OXO quality, easy to clean, and dishwasher safe. Much better than the grate kind because food has less of a tendency to get stuck." —Florida Outdoors Guy

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    22. A salad spinner that'll get your greens clean with just the push of a button. And whatever greens you don't eat right away can stay stored inside for extra freshness.

    Made with a soft, non-slip knob and a non-slip ring with a wide base for steady spinning. The clear bowl can be used for serving while the basket can be removed and used as a separate colander. It holds up to 6.22 quarts of delish salad. Plus, it's BPA-free and top rack–dishwasher safe!

    Promising review: "I don't know how I lived for 71 years WITHOUT this! I hate making salad, but I got very tired of buying expensive bags of greens only to have them spoil rapidly. This works perfectly and rapidly, is incredibly sturdy, and is great for sticking in the fridge and storing the greens or salad you have just spun in it. It has essentially changed the way I eat." —Fulene

    Get it from Amazon for $28.68.

    23. A citrus peeler/slicer/cutter tool for simply peeling the skin, cutting open the fruit and getting perfect slices every time.

    Color of tool is chosen at random! These are dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "I have many citrus peelers but this is my favorite. I like to peel grapefruit and the sharp hook of this works perfectly but I don't put my fingers in the holes, I just hold the peeler in my hand and then use the other end to help separate the segments." —Appletree333

    Get it from Amazon for $7.88.

    24. A Ninja blender to enjoy your produce in the form of a smoothie, because sometimes you just need a smoothie moment.

    Blender has three speeds, a pulse option, and single-serve functions. It comes with two 16 oz. cups with to-go lids so you can take your drinks on-the-go. Plus, it's BPA-free and dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "We replaced an expensive blender ($400) that died after five or six years. We researched many more expensive ones and then decided to try this one. It is very powerful and straightforward to use. It is powerful and easy to clean too. We really like the cups that come with it for a quick personal smoothie! The design for pouring is very nice also! We have had no issues chopping up ice, ice cream, sherbet, yogurt, and fruit (sliced apples, bananas, avocados, pears, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries), celery, peanut butter, peanuts and a lot more. It has been two months using it and we really are glad we purchased this blender as it does everything we need — smoothies, shakes, desserts, puddings and energy drinks!" —Ronald J. Weagley

    Get it from Amazon for $99.98 (originally $109.99).

    Made from sturdy and durable pressed glass. Plus, they are dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "Really nice and thick glass. It has high sides so your corn won't roll right out of it. Also great for rolling your corn in butter without getting butter all over your other food." —Denise

    Get it from Amazon for $18.03 (originally $19.99).

    26. A vegetable brush for cleaning off your produce before consuming it. Let's be real, there were probably a couple of hands touching it in the store and it doesn't hurt to be safe.

    Made with a flexible, non-slip grip, and is dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "Before I bought this I was scrubbing my veggies with a brush designed for dishes, and it did the job, but this is so much better. It's more ergonomic because it's made to scrub veggies, and the bristles are stiffer so it does a much better job. And I don't have to worry that anyone else in the house has used my veggie brush to scrub the dishes." —Kristy LeBlanc

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.
