    Promising review: “This is a very elegant, casual service set. I love mine and will probably order another service for 12. I couldn’t be more pleased. It is beautiful and still looks as good as the day I bought it.” —Sis

    3. A non-skid lazy Susan turntable you can place inside your cabinets or on your countertop for easy access to cooking items, kitchen utensils, or even condiments.

    The product is designed with a raised rim to prevent items from falling off while it spins.

    Promising review: “We packed these things down and they have been great! We have a simple reach-in pantry that's wider than the actual doorway. These were super helpful in filling in the corners. Our inside depth from wall to wall was 19-1/2". These 18" were perfect! I also ordered the 12" but are soon replacing those with more 18" ones. This is overall a great product and just a little cheaper than the big box stores.” —M. Ellsworth 

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

    4. A set of carbon steel knives which'll have you cutting ingredients for recipes with style.

    The three-piece set includes a 3.5" paring knife, 5" utility knife, 8" chef knife, which all come with matching blade guards.

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $39.99.

    5. A Dash electric air fryer to cook up a batch of of your fave fried foods with less added fat.

    The air fryer features an auto-shutoff function and a nonstick fryer basket that is dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: “I wanted an alternative to deep frying and decided to get the Dash air fryer. It works great without the need of using so much oil. It works as advertised and is a perfect size. Even my awesome chef of a boyfriend loves it!” —Halie 

    Get it from Amazon for $49.47+ (available in five colors).

    6. A set of aluminum non-stick bakeware so your pans and sheets can be as amazing as your cooking skills.

    The two-piece set includes one cookie sheet and one brownie pan, which features higher edges than traditional sheet pans for easily making healthy snacks like granola bars.

    Get them from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $24.99.

    7. A collapsible bread box for keeping your loaves and kitchen style fresh.

    The bread box is dishwasher-safe and BPA-free, and expands to fit various loaf sizes. It also features air vents you can adjust to keep your bread fresh and closes with magnetic snaps.

    Promising review: “I’ve been baking bread for quite a while now. And until I got this bread keeper, my bread would go stale in about three days, if I left it out. I could extend it to four days, if I put it in a plastic bag. But there would definitely be mold by the fifth day. But with this bread keeper, I've seemed to be able to keep bread fresh for over a week. The crust definitely gets soft. But there is no mold. And after about 10 days, it is only stale around the edges.” —Casen Davis

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    8. A set of ceramic dinnerware with clean lines to immediately dress up your table.

    The 20-piece set include four dinner plates, four appetizer plates, four salad plates, four appetizer bowls, and four salad bowls. They are dishwasher-safe.

    Get them from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $90.99.

    9. A Casabella soap pump that features built-in compartments where you can store your sponges and dish brushes.

    The pump can be used with hand soap or dish soap.

    Promising review: “I’ve tried so many ways to keep an organized and good looking sink area. This dispenser is small enough to be inconspicuous but large enough to hold soap! I also bought a Meyer's set of hand soap and dishwashing liquid — both standard sizes — and the capacity was exact. Plus, the pumps dispense easily.” — Mon

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in two colors)

    10. A non-stick cookware set which’ll have you rushing to cook your next Top Chef-worthy dish.

    The 10-piece set includes a 9.5" fry pan, 2 Qt. saucepan with lid, 11" grill pan, 3 Qt. saucepan with lid, 4 Qt. jumbo cooker with lid and helper handle, 6 Qt. Dutch oven with lid, and recipe booklet

    Get them from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $149.99.

    11. A set of handmade glass straws so you can stay fabulous with every sip.

    The set includes four dishwasher-safe, BPA-free straws that are designed from durable borosilicate glass. They also include a cleaning brush.

    Promising review: “I like these a lot! They are tall enough to use with a pint glass, which is nice. I have been washing them in the dishwasher without chipping or breakage. I like the option of the little brush, too. The diameter is larger than a typical plastic straw.” —MH5

    Get them from Amazon for $7.99.

    12. A set of utensils with soft handles to stir a little fun into every meal.

    The five-piece set includes a spoon with measuring marks, a ladle strainer, a masher herb stripper, a turner with a cutting edge and ginger grater, and a slotted spoon with an herb stripper. The utensils are heat-resistant to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and dishwasher-safe.

Promising review: “The Mount Zao pour-over station has a hefty weight, beautiful design, and quality components. My previous stainless-steel filter let through a lot of sludge. This one does not. The glass is borosilicate, something I was looking for. I would definitely order this again if something happened to it.” —EchantedDreams

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    14. An Americana by Elite Breakfast Shoppe to prepare coffee and tasty breakfast creations for your family.

    The breakfast shoppe features a coffee maker, toaster, and griddle.

    Promising review: "Space saver alert! This is so cute to boot. I LOVE the color of this appliance, and I am so happy with it. Coffee...check! Toast...check! It is perfect for my little vintage camper. It's just the right size for morning breakfast for one or two." –HeyChickiePoo

    Get it from Walmart for $36.57 or Jet for $36.57.

    15. A whistling kettle to be just what you need if you prefer boiling water the old-school way.

    The microwave oven features an auto-cook menu, two-way defrost, and zero-power standby functions and five microwave power levels. 

    Promising review: “This is the best little microwave EVER! It has simple functionality, zero power usage until actually turned on, and is roomy enough for a dinner plate. I use a microwave for three things only — reheating, defrosting, and popcorn. I’m so glad to have one without all the clutter. AND it's cute as a button!” —U.P. WannaBe

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99 (available in three colors).

    17. A metal spice rack set that'll let you easily access your spices while cooking and keep them in order once your dish is finished.

    The steel spice rack set includes a spice rack, 18 glass bottles, and 48 spice labels.

    Promising review: “I love this set so much I already bought another one! The jars are a nice thickness and not overly fragile. I haven't had any issues with them sliding out. I bought different, cuter labels. But the ones it came with were sufficient. I can fit two units deep into my cabinets, so it saves space also.” —Kristi Winward

    Get it from Amazon for $25.87.

    18. A pretty marble cutting board for slicing and dicing ingredients or preparing dough for pastries and other baked dishes.

    The marble stone naturally keeps dough and other ingredients cool, helping butter, cheese, and other cooking items chill and firm. And it is recommended you hand-wash the cutting board with a mild detergent.

    Promising review: “I bought this for my son for a Christmas gift. He has celiac disease and needed a pastry board that he could use strictly for gluten-free baking. He really likes it. I also bought him the matching rolling pin with stand.” —NatureDoctor

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    19. A Totally Bamboo salt box — which features a magnetic swivel closure — so you can salt or sugar the rims of your margarita and martini glasses or prevent your cooking salt’s grains from sticking together.

    Promising review: “This works well and keeps the fancy salt next to the stove covered so that nothing gets in there accidentally. But the best thing about the bamboo is that it absorbs moisture. In the hot part of the summer, the humidity didn't affect the salt. The grains stayed separated and didn't stick together. That was nice.” —PittsburghRedhead 

    Get it from Amazon for $13.36.

    20. A set of nonstick bakeware designed specifically for cooking up some amazing dishes in the toaster oven.

    The four-piece set includes a baking pan, cooling rack, cake pan, and muffin pan. The pieces are dishwasher-safe, but hand-washing them is recommended. 

    Promising review: “These have worked VERY well for the last year. I’ve experienced no weird rust or discoloration. And they don't scratch easily. I take decently good care of them (okay, maybe they've spent a couple days dirty in the sink). So I'm not sure how much abuse they'd be able to withstand. However, I don't have a full-size oven so these are used pretty often!" —Claire

    Get them from Amazon for $12.79

    21. A four-slice Krups Belgian waffle maker that just may have your family eating breakfast for EVERY damn meal.

    Promising review: “I love this waffle iron. The removable grates are perfect, and the waffles turn out awesome. The best advice I have for using this really incredible waffle iron is: let this heat up for a long time on the hottest setting. Then give it five extra minutes, at least past the beep, and brush it down with a little melted butter right before adding in two cups of batter. Your waffles will turn out perfect. Also try a yeasted batter. Those turned out to be some of the best I've ever had!” —DCA

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    22. A SimpleHuman steel dish rack which includes a wineglass holder and is fingerprint-proof, so smudges can't ruin your kitchen’s lovely ambiance.

    You can hang as many as four extra-large wine glasses from the glass holder. The rack also features a drainage system with a swivel spout, to keep water from flowing onto your countertop.

    Promising review: “After using this dish drainer for over eight months, we still love it! it drains so well. And it stays so much cleaner than any other dish rack I've owned, requiring very minimal care. Very occasionally, I remove the rack and spray the inside with a cleaner, such as Fantastik, then rinse. There is absolutely no evidence of rusting or any other problems. I would purchase it again!” —Dr. Beth

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99 or Jet for $79.99.

    23. A stainless-steel rolling pin that'll immediately put your boring wooden one out of commission.

    The rolling pin is made from non-porous stainless steel, which prevents cross-contamination. The surface is also nonstick and the pin is dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: “I wish I would had bought this years ago! This is much easier to work with than your traditional rolling pins with handles. I love the sleek design and it’s easy to clean. Another thing I like is that you can chill it in the fridge, which really helps with rolling out pastry dough in the hot summer months.” —T Jo G 

    Get it from Amazon for $16.75.
