    20 Products From Amazon Canada That Might Trick People Into Thinking You’re A Pro Chef

    And they're almost all under $25!

    1. A crinkle cutter that'll give you restaurant-quality waffle fries and cute food garnishes from the comfort of your own kitchen. It's rust resistant and has a non-slip handle, so you won't actually injure yourself, and it'll definitely add a bit of fancy to your salads and stir fry.

    2. A taco bowl mould that'll help you serve up some fun taco salads, chillis, enchilada casseroles, party dips, salsa, and anything else you can dream up. Just coat the pans lightly with cooking spray, press in the tortilla wrap, bake for 8-10 minutes, and enjoy your super fun meal.

    3. A little dumpling press that'll help you create perfectly-sealed treats that won't spill their filling all over the place. It'll cut your pastry into a perfect circle, has a spoon to transfer your filling, and then crimps closed, so you don't have to do it with your fingers.

    4. Some cedar planks that'll infuse yummy flavour into your food, like salmon fillets or chicken thighs. Just make sure to soak the boards for three to four hours before grilling on the barbeque!

    5. Or a salt plank that'll give your food a natural (but not overwhelming) salty flavour. The plank can go on the grill, in the freezer, or just at room temp and would be perfect for serving sushi or steak.

    6. A cast iron grill press that'll get rid of extra fat in meats and add impressive grill marks. It weighs almost three pounds, so you could also use it as a panini press for some delicious sandwiches.

    7. A pair of meat-handling claws that'll shred all your meats and let you live out that little Wolverine fantasy you've been harbouring. They also works as a way to carry hot meat securely and to protect your hands from knives while cutting.

    8. A spiralizer that'll help you make zoodles at home, if you're keeping it low carb. It has five different blades, so you can choose what thickness you want your veggies to be cut into.

    9. A knife sharpener, because having a dull blade can actually be dangerous when you're chopping and slicing. Keep your knives perfectly honed with this handy tool, just like real chefs do.

    10. A pastry dough blender that'll incorporate all your ingredients, so you don't get any weird flour pockets in your baked goods. It has an ergonomic handle, so your hands won't get tired if you're cutting frozen butter into your batter, and it also works for mashing potatoes and baby food, salsa, guacamole, and mixing together minced meat.

    11. A mini blow torch, because playing with fire (responsibly!) is all kinds of fun. Use it to get that perfectly-crackly crème brûlée crust, or just to sear fruits to bring out their natural sweetness.

    12. A salad bowl and chopper that'll help you whip up a gourmet salad in no time, particularly if your knife skills aren't the ~sharpest~ (get it?). It has a non-slip handle that'll cut through lettuce, veg, cheese, and even some fruit, if you're feeling fancy.

    13. A gravy and sauce whisk that'll incorporate all of the ingredients evenly, including tricky roux mixtures. It's made with durable stainless steel wires and has an angled head that'll get into all of the edges of your pan, because that's where all the good stuff is hiding.

    14. A flavour injector that'll add a serious kick to your next Sunday dinner. If you don't have time to marinate meat, just inject your marinade right into it, which will make it all tender and juicy when it's cooked.

    15. Some egg shapers that'll help you surprise your roomies or partner with an unexpected little breakfast moment. Slice up some avocado, toast some bread, toss an egg into your shape of choice, and bam! Fancy brekkie, just like that.

    16. Or a silicone egg poacher that'll give you restaurant-quality Eggs Benedict every time. Poached eggs can be intimidating, but this little tool will help you get the job done. It’ll cradle the eggs while the funnel shape prevents the yolk from breaking, and the open bottom ensures a perfect poach.

    17. Some chef's bottles that'll help you replicate that beautifully-plated meal you saw on Bon Appetit's YouTube channel. You can use it to drizzle olive oil into a pan, dressing onto salads, sauce into your meals, or chocolate syrup into your desserts (or directly into your mouth — I'm not judging).

    18. A silicone dough rolling bag that'll give you a perfectly-even crust for your pizza or pie. The measurement markings help you roll to exactly the size you need, and it'll keep your countertop clean.

    19. A baker's dusting wand to add that *chef's kiss* moment to your pastries, even if they didn't turn out perfectly. You can sprinkle cocoa, powdered sugar, and spices on top of treats to show off to friends and fam on Zoom dates.

    20. And lastly, a vegetable chopper that'll help you dice peppers, zucchinis, cucumbers, and onions into perfectly uniform pieces — and it'll save you from the dreaded onion-induced tears. It'll save you time for when you need to quickly cut up lots of veggies, like for yummy soups and stews.
