    ♫ Deck the halls with kitchen gadgets, fa la la la la ♫

    Hey! While we try to keep our posts updated as much as we can, this post is actually from 2017, so we can't guarantee that the pricing and/or availability of the products featured are accurate. For our most up-to-date recommendations, check out the 2018 version of this post!

    1. A dual breakfast sandwich maker, because 1) it's a great way to motivate you to actually eat breakfast 2) your roommates will also want one once they smell yours.

    2. A sous vide precision cooker with Wi-Fi so you can monitor the food via an app while chillaxing on the couch.

    3. A vacuum sealer perfect for sous vide cooking and keeping large amounts of food fresh for a long, long time. This is great if you like to buy in bulk!

    4. A trusty food processor to do all the slicing and dicing for you... plus any shredding, crinkling, mincing, or pureeing. It's got you covered from hummus to peanut butter to pesto.

    5. The BuzzFeed Tasty One Top for making perfect meals with zero guesswork. It'll connect with the Tasty app and automatically adjust temperature and power settings to precisely match the recipe instructions!

    6. A five-in-one utensil appropriately named the "Uni-tool," because it's a slotted spoon, a turner, a solid spoon, a spatula, and a cutting tool all in one!

    7. A coffee machine with a built-in frother that'll make a variety of drinks, from an iced coffee to a latte. You'll get gourmet-coffee-shop-quality joe without having to shell out triple figures for an espresso machine.

    8. A surprisingly versatile waffle maker for whipping up your fave brunch foods at home. Think of the money you'll save!

    9. An electric kettle in a retro shade of pistachio green that'll look amazing on your countertop.

    10. A bread machine for making a fresh loaf right at home. It even has a gluten-free setting!

    11. An electric knife-sharpener to rejuvenate even the dullest of blades.

    12. An old-fashioned hot chocolate maker that'll warm up solid chocolate with milk until it becomes a drinkable treat. Warning: regular mixes may taste inadequate after trying this.

    13. An egg cooker for making six hard-boiled, soft-boiled, or poached eggs in under 10 minutes. You can even use it to cook an omelet!

    14. A cold-brew maker to please even the most discerning coffee addict. Coffee snobs unite!

    15. A five-in-one countertop cooker that'll grill burger patties, press paninis, fry bacon, and cook pancakes. So basically, 90% of my dietary needs.

    16. An electric can-opener perfect for people who were burned one too many times by a manual can-opener or a pull-tab (me).

    17. A bacon bowl maker so you can serve bacon with every meal and have it look gourmet AF.

    18. A multi-function chopping board with a meat grip on one side and an angled cutting surface designed to catch any juices or crumbs.

    19. A smart toaster oven that's also an air fryer and dehydrator! You might never turn on the full-size oven again.

    20. An ultra-slim kitchen scale with an easy-to-clean touchscreen surface for following each recipe as precisely as possible.

    21. A good old-fashioned pie bird your grandma probably uses and so should you. It'll 1) prevent the filling from boiling over and creating a mess in the oven, 2) distribute moisture so the bottom doesn't get soggy 3) ensure the top crust cooks evenly without splitting.

    22. A digital food thermometer, because you don't have super-powered eyes that can tell if the meat is under- or over-cooked. This one gives an instant temperature read!

    23. An electric citrus juicer so getting a cup of fresh-squeezed OJ takes little to no effort. It zaps ALL the juice out of each fruit and lets you control how much pulp gets left in.

    24. A quiet and efficient electric coffee grinder with a removable grinding cup for easy pouring and clean up — which means it's manageable in your half-awake state at 7 a.m. in the morning.

    25. A crepe maker, because let's face it — you would eat Nutella crepes every day if you could. And now you can.

    26. A cookbook/tablet stand with a clear splatter guard that'll make you say, "Why didn't I think of that?!"

    27. A three-blade spiralizer for exploring the healthy and delicious world of veggie pastas.

    28. A compact juice-extractor, because making daily visits to the local juice shop is just not financially feasible ATM.

    29. A cool gadget that'll turn freshly brewed hot coffee (or any non-carbonated drink, such as wine) into an iced one in a matter of minutes — without watering it down.

    30. An old-fashioned food mill perfect for making sauces, jams, or mashed potatoes, because it catches all the seeds and peels, leaving only a smooth puree. (That's probably the one thing your food processor can't do.)

    31. A cordless electric wine opener so you can get a bottle of red uncorked in just a few seconds.

    32. A frozen yogurt and ice cream maker to serve up a homemade scoop that'll rival Ben & Jerry's.

    33. A pair of bear claws for tearing BBQ meat to shreds. You could use forks, but what's the fun in that?

    34. A hand blender that's just as powerful as a full-sized version but doesn't take up valuable counter space. Plus, it's super easy to clean up.

    35. A stand mixer 100% worth the ~dough~. Baking huge batches of gingerbread cookies will be an absolute breeze with this kitchen helper.

    36. An adjustable stainless steel slicer for tricking others into thinking your cheese platter is professionally catered.

    37. And an almighty Instant Pot, which does just about anything you want it to. It's a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan, yogurt maker, and food warmer all rolled into one nifty appliance.

    Do a happy dance in your well-stocked kitchen!
