We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.

1. An ice cream maker that'll allow you to make your own frozen treats at home.

amazon.com

Makes ice cream, sorbet, and frozen yogurt in less than 30 minutes. Features a digital timer so you don't have to personally track how long your treat is churning. Includes an easy-pour spout for all your favorite toppings and a complimentary recipe book. Yields about 1.5 pints. Must hand-wash with warm, soapy water.

Promising Review: "Great machine, especially for the price! So easy to use and clean. First batch of homemade vanilla turned out well! I can't wait to make more flavors." —Danielle

Get it from Amazon for $44.99.

2. An edible chocolate box filled with tasty fleur de sel caramels for a doubly delicious bite.

Base of the box is made out of rich bittersweet chocolate, and the lid consists of white chocolate topped with an all-natural cocoa butter floral print. It's filled with 18 fleur de sel caramels. Which part are you going to eat first?

Get it from UncommonGoods for $65.

3. A pie crust shield to ensure the next batch of apple-gooey goodness is topped with a flaky, crispy crust rather than a burnt one.

amazon.com

Shield can adjust to pies between 8 and 11.5 in., is made with FDA food-safe silicone, and can resist heat up to 500 degrees F. Dishwasher-safe.

Promising Review: "Okay, silicone is the new plastic, and it's so much better. Hot, cold, run it over with your car, doesn't matter. This stuff is awesome. I thought at first glance that this product would be heavy and crush the delicate edge of my pies, but it's actually super-light and works so well. It's adjustable, which is super handy because it fits all those different pie pans you've collected over the years. In addition, for those of us who are hating plastic more and more, because it never dies, never decomposes, and also puts off harmful chemicals (especially when heated, like in the dishwasher), these are totally safe. Truly. Oh! And these are super easy to clean, which, if you have tin ones, you know is a big plus." —Write4Change

Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in three colors).
