    1. A cutting shield to keep ingredients in place and protect your fingers while you chop away.

    2. A boil-over guard because the pasta always seems to erupt at the exact moment you turn away.

    3. A silicone oven puller so you can check on your cookies while still keeping a safe distance from the hot oven.

    4. A set of stainless steel mixing bowls with non-slip silicone bottoms that won't budge while you whisk. The handle will also give you a better grip.

    5. A cookbook stand with a splash guard to shield the pages from marinara sauce.

    6. A knife sharpener because dull knives can be more dangerous than sharp ones — they require more pressure to cut, and you have less control over them.

    7. A clip-on strainer so your hands don't have to go anywhere near the boiling water.

    8. A pack of soft and absorbent microfiber cloths for cleaning up those inevitable spills.

    9. A silicone pot holder to get a firm grip on the casserole dish. Bonus: it can also be a trivet/coaster, spoon rest, or jar opener.

    10. A splatter guard that'll prevent hot grease from landing on your body and the kitchen counter.

    11. A pair of extra-long oven mitts so your arms can get some protection as well.

    12. A pair of cut-resistant gloves, if your knife skills are not so sharp. (But don't cut your hand on purpose to test these gloves!)

    13. A tropical apron to save your outfit from spills and splatters. Luckily, it's so cute you'll want to wear it all the time.

    14. An electric can opener that'll deliver perfectly smooth edges instead of jagged ones.

    15. An air fryer so you can enjoy some crispy chicken wings without the risk of heating up a deep vat of frying oil.

    16. A fire extinguisherjust in case something catches on fire. You can never be too prepared.

    17. A pack of silicone oven-rack guards your forearms will be very glad you bought.

    18. A knife set with blade guards so you don't prick your fingers on them in the drawers.
