    1. A veggie spiralizer for an easy way of making delish zucchini noodles from scratch. Bonus: it'll easily fit in your drawers.

    2. A stainless steel bar that'll erase the smell of garlic and fish from your hands.

    3. A 5-in-1 unitool you can use as a slotted spoon, a solid spoon, a spatula, a turner, and a cutting tool.

    5. A manual food chopper for breaking up ground meats, mashing potatoes, or cutting up hard-boiled eggs.

    6. A pack of dishcloths can dry quickly and remain odor-free — they'll last a lot longer than your average sponge.

    7. A silicone spoonula (spoon + spatula) you'll find yourself reaching for more than any other utensil.

    8. A spill stopper to catch a pasta-boil-over disaster before it happens.

    9. A stainless steel rack for a convenient spot to rest pot lids and cooking utensils. It'll catch any runoff water and sauce, and keep your countertop clean.

    11. A flexible sink strainer so you can easily empty out food particles by pulling on the tab and inverting it.

    12. A pair of silicone-covered tongs to boldly go where no human hands have gone (deep into a hot oven or a boiling pot of water).

    13. A brush and squeegee combo for swiping any wet or dry spills on the countertop into the sink — it'll save you so much on paper towels.

    14. A flat whisk that can do everything a regular ballon whisk can but will be a lot easier to clean.

    20. A clip-on strainer so you can finally retire your clunky old colander.

    21. A pair of bag racks to hold storage (or trash) bags open so both your hands can be free to scoop the food.

    22. A smart funnel for transfering the lasts bits of BBQ sauce or dish detergent from one bottle to another — hands-free.

    23. A pack of long-lasting sponges that won't scratch up your nice pans or start to smell musty after a few days.

    24. A 3-in-1 tool any ~hardcore~ avocado fan should get.
