    1. A 7-in-1 Instant Pot that'll speed up hours-long recipes so cooking pot roast on a weeknight will be a lot less daunting.

    2. A double-layer food steamer for preparing healthy dinners with almost zero effort. You'd have to cut and rinse the veggies but that's about it.

    3. An electric slicer/shredder to literally shoot ingredients into your salad (or pasta, pie, casserole, etc.). Simply load in an ingredient, press a button, and let the magic happen.

    4. A handy food cutter so you can leave your knife and cutting board in the cabinet and chop ingredients directly over the pan.

    5. A gourmet garlic slicer that'll turn a whole clove into fine slivers with just a few turns. No more getting your hands stinky.

    6. An air fryer — it can make any ingredient taste crispy and delicious, from chicken wings to broccoli. It uses little to no oil and cooks food super quickly.

    7. An electric potato peeler for a satisfying way to get produce peeled and ready to go.

    8. A good ol' Crock-Pot to do the cooking for you while you're at work or even sleeping.

    10. A rotating pizza oven that can do pretty much anything a conventional oven can and a lot faster — bake a pie from scratch or heat up frozen foods and leftovers.

    11. A turning spiralizer for easily cranking out some delish zucchini pasta that'll rival restaurant dishes.

    12. A quesadilla maker to magically transform random leftover ingredients and some cheese into a tasty dinner. Call it a miracle gadget because that's what it is.

    13. A sushi-making kit for a fool-proof way of making California rolls at home. The Seamless guy might be worried about you because you'll stop ordering takeout.

    14. A panini press because there are very few things in this world that are more satisfying (and easier to make) than a hot sandwich.

    15. A mini food chopper so you don't have to spend your precious time slicing and dicing.

    16. A convection toaster oven for roasting chickens, reheating leftovers, toasting up some bread or chicken nuggets — all without firing up your full-size oven.

    17. A digital rice cooker (with a steaming tray) to make easy, one-pot meals — the included steam tray allows for meats and vegetables to be steamed while rice cooks below.

    18. A breakfast sandwich maker, if you love having breakfast foods for dinner. You can also customize the sandwich to include more ~dinner-ish~ ingredients.

    19. A pair of herb scissors that'll cut up entire stalks of scallions in no time.

    20. An As-Seen-on-TV non-stick cooker for whipping up single-portion meals with minimal cleanup.
