    24 Kitchen Gizmos That'll Do All Those Annoying Jobs (So You Don't Have To)

    I am the world's laziest chef.

    1. A pair of bottle-cleaning beans that'll help you scrub away that unreachable gunk that lives at the bottom of your vessels. The pods are filled with ceramic beads that'll slough away all kinds of buildup (no matter how long it's been there).

    2. A 3-in-1 avocado tool that'll help you pit, slice, and scoop with ease. Best of all, it tucks up nice and small, so you won't need to sacrifice a ton of drawer space.

    3. This stainless steel cleaner polish that'll help you buff out fingerprints, smudges, and grease on all your appliances. The formula easily dissolves grime and leaves behind a protective film to keep new streaks from forming.

    4. A pair of glossy sink strainers that'll keep kitchen debris out of your pipes. The base is made of flexible silicone that'll adjust to fit your drain, so you'll always have a snug seal.

    5. One of these produce keepers that'll prevent your greenery from wilting five minutes after you buy it. They work by filtering carbon, so your fruits and veggies will stay crisp and fresh (instead of getting soft and soggy).

    6. A silicone bacon bin that'll keep the grease from clogging up your pipes and garbage disposal. It's easy to scoop back out and even has a strainer attachment to keep all that bacon-y goodness silky-smooth for future use.

    7. An expandable colander that'll help you drain your produce, without making a mess of your kitchen. It'll fit right over your sink and is sturdy enough to use as a dish-drying rack, if you like.

    8. This rocking garlic press that'll save you a ton of prep time and protect your fingers from these delicious (yet pungent) nuggets. The rocking motion means you won't need to have Hulk strength for it to be effective, either!

    9. This scrap trap that'll help you scoop mess and debris out of the way when you're cooking. It even comes with a scraper, so you won't have to get your hands dirty.

    10. A compact air fryer that'll help you achieve optimal crispiness (without taking up all your counter space). It has a ton of safety features, too, like cool-touch handles, non-slip feet, and an automatic shut-off for stress free cooking.

    11. These easy-release ice cube trays that you won't have to wrestle with the next time you're craving a frosty beverage. They come with spillproof lids that'll prevent freezer messes, too.

    12. A grass-like drying pad that'll help your dishes dry faster. The silicone fronds keep condensation from building inside your bottles and glassware, so you won't have to polish away the water stains.

    13. A pancake batter mixer that will take the mess out of making Sunday brunch. It'll double as a dispenser bottle and even features a pressure-release cap that'll prevent sputtering and spraying.

    14. A 2-in-1 silicone whisk that's basically the adult version of a Transformer. A quick twist and you can turn your whisk into a flexible spatula that'll handle delicate items (like fish) with basically zero effort.

    15. This cold brew coffee maker that'll prep your java while you're sleeping, so you can get caffeinated ASAP. The bottom section also doubles as a carafe, in case you don't finish every last drop (you will).

    18. This Mason jar juicer lid that'll turn ordinary jars into lean, mean, juicing machines. It's made of recycled plastic and features a hidden screen that'll filter out pulp and seeds.

    19. A manual food chopper that uses a rip cord-like mechanism to help you with all that tedious chopping. The stainless steel blades can slice right through veggies, so you'll spend less time prepping and more time actually enjoying your delicious creations.
