    1. An Instant Pot that'll pretty much become your new favorite gadget — this thing is a pressure cooker, a slow cooker, a rice cooker, a steamer, a sauté-r, a yogurt maker, and a warmer all in ONE.

    2. A rapid egg cooker to prepare your favorite style of the yummy breakfast food EGGtra quick — hard/medium/soft boiled, poached, scrambled, omelet — breakfast for every meal anyone?

    3. An air fryer for turning all of your favorite foods into deliciously crispy versions, minus all the oil! Chicken tenders and french fries for dinner every night? Yes, please.

    4. A cauliflower prep tool that'll make de-stalking the vegetable less chore-like. We want you to spend more time eating your veggies, not taking them apart.

    5. A veggie spiralizer for making "vegetable pasta," with just the turn of a handle. Yep, it's really that easy. Now all you need to do is cook it up with your favorite sauce and toppings!

    6. A clip-on colander that'll make draining the liquid from the pot and pan incredibly easy and preparing dinner a lot less messy.

    7. A Crock-Pot so you can just throw in your ingredients in the morning and having a hot meal ready by dinnertime.

    8. A countertop blender for making refreshing smoothies and milkshakes in a matter of just seconds, with just the push of a button.

    9. Slow-cooker liners so you can line your slow cooker with one of these babies before putting in your ingredients to make cleanup super fast and simple.

    10. A sushi-making kit for making your own fresh sushi! If you want to throw together a strange combination of ingredients that would probably make a sushi chef give you disapproving looks, you can now do so judgment-free!

    11. A grease splatter screen so you can cook up a storm without having to worry about dangerously hot oil hitting your skin.

    12. A sous vide that will have you making five-star meals right at home. Wouldn't you rather wear your pajamas while cutting into a perfectly cooked piece of meat?

    13. A microwave pasta maker to make it super easy to eat a big bowl o' carbs. No stove, no stress!

    14. An immersion blender that'll do the most stellar job of helping you whip up yummy smoothies, mashed potatoes, homemade pasta sauces, and so much more!

    15. A stainless-steel measuring cup and spoon set to prevent you from having to just wing it when it comes to getting the right amount of ingredients to use in a recipe.

    16. A colander spoon that'll help eliminate the struggle that is... well... dealing with colanders. Just scoop up your food directly from the pot!

    17. Nonstick toaster bags so when your next craving for a grilled cheese hits, you can simply pop it in the toaster, no pans needed.

    18. A garlic chopper you simply roll back and forth to chop up fresh garlic. Not only is it easy, but, it's pretty fun. Mom only said I couldn't play with my food, she never said anything about not playing with my kitchen gadgets.

    19. Spill-stopper lids you simply place over your pots or pans while cooking to prevent unwanted spillage. Look, when I'm making pasta, I want to pass the time by watching Gilmore Girls uninterrupted, and I can't quite do that if I have to worry about water bubbling out of the pot. Rude.

    20. A batter dispenser to get the perfect amount of batter out and onto the griddle or into a cupcake liner (or wherever else you may be pouring batter), with just the squeeze of a handle.

    21. A microwave bacon-cooker that'll make it so simple to whip up that salty goodness. When you wake up in the morning, do you really feel like taking a pan out, putting bacon into it, having to remember to flip the bacon, and wait — which step is it that you have to drain the grease from the pan? Yeah, no, forget that.

    22. 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 you and your loved ones while they're sitting at the table? Uh, no it can't. Point proven.

    23. A nonstick 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.

    24. A lasagna trio pan that'll allow you to whip up THREE, that's right, THREE, different types of lasagna at the SAME TIME. Because when you're living with people who have varying food allergies and restrictions, you want to be sure you're prepping something everyone can enjoy, while making it easy on yourself.
