Comes with 10 straws!
Promising review: “I was kind of shocked at how good quality these straws are! They come in a neat little baggie that you can store them in, and with a straw cleaner as well! I don’t usually leave reviews on products (even if I really like them), but they donate 100% of the proceeds of your order to OCEANA if you leave a review, and that’s a HUGE plus for me. So not only do I really like the product, I get to share the good news through this review AND my payment gets donated to OCEANA. I really really appreciate that. 10/10 product!” — Amazon Customer
A surface cover to transform your kitchen counters and tablets into beautiful marble pieces, without needing to spend the time or money on calling a professional to re-do your kitchen.
our write-up of this inexpensive and super cool marble adhesive surface cover!
Promising review: “I wanted to spruce up my rented apartment’s kitchen counter, and this contact paper did not disappoint. The contact paper is super sticky, but no matter how many times you messed up (and I’ve messed up A LOT!), the contact paper will still be sticky. There is a technique to sticking it so you don’t get bubbles (we used credit cards to force out the bubbles), so you will have to play around with it. Highly recommend it!” — G. Chen
Price: $5.88+ (available in two sizes under $20)
Silicone stretch lids so you don’t have to deal with the annoyingness that is stubborn plastic wrap or search your kitchen high and low until everything is a mess looking for the right-sized cover.
You’ll receive seven silicone stretch lids ranging from sizes 2.8″ to 9.1″ diameters, plus a large bonus party bowl lid! These are free of BPA, lead, plastic, and phthalates. Plus, they’re dishwasher- and freezer-safe!
Promising review: “These lids are great! No more searching for the right lid. They’re especially helpful for my glass bowls. I’ve never had success with plastic wrap, so these feel like a miracle. I love that they’ll stretch to cover a bowl that’s too full to fit it’s lid, so finding the right container for leftovers just got a lot easier.” — Vanessa Brannan
A garbage disposal foaming cleaner that’ll tackle built-up grime and those nasty smells you gag at every time you, family members, or house guests go near your kitchen sink. It’s truly so…disgusting.
The biodegradable packet cleans/scrubs away at grime and odor that cause build-up and yucky smells on sidewalls, blades, under the splashguard, and other hidden areas. They come in pre-measured drop-in packets and are recommended to use about once a week!
Promising review: “It seems counterintuitive to put a little packet down your garbage disposal to clean it, but this does actually seem to work, at least for getting out weird smells that baking soda and vinegar don’t really touch. I scrub the sink down first, especially around the garbage disposal area, rinse it down, and then just follow the directions on the package. I have used it with single, large-size sinks and with double sinks — only difference is that the double sink will have blue cleaning foam rise up the drain, which you rinse away when the disposal sounds clear again. I have tried the foaming cleaner in a can, but unfortunately it stopped coming out of the can about 10% of the way through. Went back to this tried-and-true.” — KS
A batter dispenser to get the perfect amount of batter out and onto the griddle or into a cupcake liner (or wherever else you may be pouring batter), with just the squeeze of a handle.
This dispenser is made of high quality BPA-free plastic and has a four cup capacity. All you have to do is fill it with your choice of batter, squeeze the handle to pour it out evenly, and it’s dishwasher-safe, so then you can just pop it in there to clean!
Promising review: “Finally a kitchen utensil that saves time, mess, and frustration! I ordered this because my 10-year-old daughter loves to make pancakes but she also leaves an incredible mess. She also loves to make cupcakes and that’s even a double mess. Upon receiving the batter dispenser, my daughter took it out of the package and started making pancakes right away without my instructions. She loved the ease to make the pancakes in the container and then one click on the pan with no mess.” — Jim Hudson
Bluapple that helps to preserve the freshness of your produce by up to THREE MONTHS. Just toss it in the crisper drawer and stop tossing your fruits and veggies in the garbage sooner than you anticipated.
Promising review: “These REALLY work! We have to move them away from our fresh fruit so it would ripen! My produce is lasting at least three times as long without spoilage. This is a great product, and I have already bought many as gifts. They don’t seem to work on tomatoes, but they are great with bananas, apples, kiwi, pears, grapes, plums, peaches, lettuces, mushrooms, and many more fruits and vegetables.” — Jacki
Bento lunch boxes for prepping perfectly balanced and pre-portioned lunches and dinners in advance. That is peak responsible adult if I’ve ever seen it.
Comes with six containers! These are FDA-approved, BPA-free, and made with food-grade materials. They’re microwave-, freezer-, and dishwasher-safe (top rack), and can withstand temps between -40 and 320 degrees Fahrenheit.
Promising review: “These were exactly what I wanted, and I have been very pleased with them. In fact, they surpassed my expectations. Ample room and compartments for perfect work and school lunches. Very easy to pack. Very easy to clean. And they stack nicely on my storage shelf. You get enough with one order to pretty much handle an entire family’s needs. I would definitely recommend them.” — C.J. Balthrop
An oven cleaning spray so next time you go to open the oven door and pop in dinner, you’re not tempted to puke all over it because of the yucky build-up you’ve let it accumulate.
Good for use on ovens, broilers, and barbecue grills. Only takes about five minutes to spot clean.
Promising review: “My oven was in bad shape. I had tried doing the whole baking soda and peroxide trick, but it made things worse. I tried this after seeing it on a BuzzFeed article and it actually worked! Let it sit for about four hours and the nastiness wipes off effortlessly.” — Natalie C
Mike’s Hot Honey that may just become your new go-to condiment. It’s delicious on spicy foods, savory foods, sweet foods, heck, you may even be tempted to just hold the bottle over your mouth and just eat it directly from the bottle. You do you.
our write-up of the delicious Mike’s Hot Honey!
Promising review: “I was a skeptic, but now I AM a believer. This mixed up honey is absolutely fabulous. I ordered three bottles more after my initial order. Why? Because it is really good on everything. And I mean EVERYTHING. Soft pretzels, toast, biscuits, waffles, cereal, yogurt, ice cream, and definitely pizza. Gives everything in your kitchen a small kick of sweet heat flavor without burning your mouth. I have told many of my friends about this magical elixir and they all agree — this is the BEST specialty honey any of us have ever had. Don’t hesitate to buy it. It is absolutely wonderful stuff. I most HIGHLY recommended!” — Jeff R. Clow
A brown sugar bear you just soak in water for 20 minutes and then place in brown sugar to help it soften. We don’t wanna see you have to chuck your hardened brown sugar just because you haven’t used it in a while.
Promising review: “After multiple containers for my brown sugar and continuously throwing my brown sugar away due to giant hard lumps, I began to wonder why our brown sugar never lumped as a child. That’s when I remembered a weird brown bear in our sugar, After a quick Google search I found this! I soaked it in water for 30 minutes and then added to my lumpy brown sugar…two days later there is not a single lump in my sugar! Yay!” — Sneezeloaf
A 3-in-1 avocado slicer for splitting, pitting, and slicing the green stuff known as nature’s butter. Less time fanagling with silverware and more time eating avocado toast — win/win.
Features a soft, comfy non-slip grip. This is dishwasher-safe!
Promising review: “I used to laugh at this kind of product until my friend was using hers. It made it all so easy! Honestly, I can’t believe someone as clumsy as me was functioning without it. Where I used to use a knife and spoon or fork to deal with avocados, it’s now just this one thing. Each part of the tool does its job really well, and it’s easy to clean. Love it so much. Even if you’re not a clever tool kinda person, just get it. It’s worth it.” — kikikitten
A dishwasher cleaning tablet you just pop inside the machine and run it through a cycle like normal. While that’s happening, grab a pair of UV-protection glasses and brace yourself for how shiny your appliance is going to be when you open it… haha just kidding… unless?!
Comes with six tablets! These tablets remove odor-causing residue and help get rid of lime and mineral build-up that naturally occurs inside dishwashers. The tablet is designed to last throughout the entire wash cycle, and is recommended for use about once a month. These are safe to use in stainless steel tub and plastic tub dishwashers.
Promising review: “After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener no longer was doing its job, so I had the rental company replace it. Dishwasher performance improved somewhat. I decided to do two more loads before deciding to purchase a new one. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh in a magazine. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I added that to my order. When it came, I tossed one of the tablets into the bottom of the full machine, and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! My glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I will use this faithfully on a monthly basis, as recommended. I can even put it on my subscribe and save order, so I will get a new pack every six months. I am amazed!” — Sheila
And while you’re at it, you’ll want to add these washing machine cleaning tablets to your cart, too, because they’re just as easy, and we wanna help keep your appliances in tip-top shape.
Comes with six tablets! These are safe to use with front-load washing machines and top-load washing machines, and both high efficiency and conventional machines. Recommended to use once a month!
Promising review: “I have been using bleach to clean my machine for some time, but decided to give this a try a few months ago. My very first clean with Affresh left me surprised and delighted, for not only did it clean my machine, it eliminated the nasty smell that always transferred to my clothes thanks to a build-up of mold I didn’t even know about. Every month now, I toss a tablet into the drum and let it work its magic. Now, my machine is cleaner than ever, and my clothes always smell wonderfully fresh. I highly recommend this to everyone.” — Kelli Crawford
A cutlery drawer organizer so you can consolidate your forks, knives, and spoons into one fabulous little tool.
Features cutlery icons for easy identification. They recommend to wash and dry this by hand!
Promising review: “Yes, this little utensil tray is really that good! I went from using 12 inches of horizontal space in a lovely but huge wooden utensil tray to using about four inches (whatever the width of this godsend is). It stores my butter knives, steak knives, spoons, forks, and a slew of little teaspoons. I’d guess that the max capacity for each slot is about 10 pieces. For example, I fit four butter knives and four steak knives into the first/knife slot easily, with good wiggle room. This is such a great design. Using this tray opened up about half of my 18-inch wide drawer, which allowed me to decompress the other drawers in my kitchen a bit. I highly recommend this item. It’s worth every penny.” — Kathleen Cooke
Silicone trivets that can be used as pot holders, spoon rests, jar openers, and large drink coasters — and come in a variety of fun colors so you can get ones that’ll match your kitchen’s aesthetic.
Comes with two! These are made of FDA-approved silicone that doesn’t stain, mold, mildew, or absorb odors. They’re also heat-resistant to temps of up to 442 degrees Fahrenheit. Plus, they’re dishwasher-safe!
Promising review: “These pads are great! They lay flat or hang and look nice sitting on the counter (where a normal oven mitt would not). They are very flexible, and the little nubs are great for gripping pans, and they work wonderfully to block heat from hands and counters. Color is exactly the same as in the photos.” — Madeleine
Price: $12.07 (available in nine colors)
A rapid egg cooker so you don’t have to waste your precious time standing over the stove waiting for your eggs to finish cooking. I own this, and lemme tell ya, it’s a pretty wonderful thing being able to watch Netflix and not keep a hawk-eye view on my omelette in the mornings.
When I tell you that I think this is one of my all-time favorite purchases ever, I’m not EGGagerating…. but really, I’m not. I pretty much use this every single day. Let me start by saying that the pieces themselves were self-explanatory. I opened this when I was VERY hungry and therefore had no patience to read an instruction manual, and found it super quick to figure out what to do.
It can boil up to six eggs at a time. It comes with a little measuring cup with a needle at one end that you simply pierce the larger top of the egg with, place the egg on one of the six slots of the tray with the pierced side facing up, fill the measuring cup to the soft, medium, or hard line depending on your preference, pour the water through center hole, cover the cooker, plug it in, and press the button. It makes a sound in the form of a pretty cute (and TBH, kinda catchy) song when it’s ready, so you don’t have to sit and wait around. This also comes with a poacher tray and an omelet tray that are just as easy to use! I’ve been on a kick with the omelet tray lately, because it’s just a million times better than having to stand over the stove. Be sure to check out
our write-up of this awesome egg cooker!
Price: $18.40+ (available in five colors)
Silicone baking mats to help you spend less time wrestling cookies off the baking sheet and more time eating.
The mats are made of nonstick silicone and don’t require oil, cooking spray, or parchment paper. They’re oven-safe in temps of up to 480 degrees Fahrenheit, fit in half-sheet-sized pans, and are top-rack dishwasher-safe!
Promising review: “I LOVE these mats. Excellent quality and price. There are many brands more expensive and these do the same thing. I live a low-fat, plant-based lifestyle so these mats eliminate the need and use of oil to roast vegetables, bake cookies, and other baked goods. They are so easy to clean and nonstick, so hot water and a soft rub and the mats clean them up well. I don’t know how I did without them! I will never buy foil or parchment paper again. Potatoes are crispy without the use of oil too!” — Crystal Audas
A glass mixing bowl set great for food prep, and also just super simple, pretty serving bowls.
This three-piece set includes a one quart bowl, a 1 1/2 quart bowl, and a 2 1/2 quart bowl. Bowls are made of pure Pyrex glass and are microwave-, dishwasher-, preheated-oven, and freezer-safe! They won’t stain or absorb yucky food odors, or catch left-behind flavors.
Promising review: “We absolutely love these! They are a great size, and they have a good weight to them. They clean out easily, which is a huge improvement over my last mixing bowls. We only use these for mixing, so we haven’t run into any issues with taking them from one extreme temperature to another. I do think it’s worth noting, though, that it warns you not to do that right in the booklet that comes with the bowls. Clear as day, first page. We’ll probably end up buying more and completely replacing our mixing bowls with these.” — Orleana P.
A veggie chopper to quickly chop, slice, dice, and spiralize your produce — you thought meal prepping was tedious, but now it’s actually quite… enjoyable?!
Comes with four interchangeable blades so you can julienne, chop, slice, and cut easily! This is FDA-approved, BPA-free, and can be fully disassembled and put in the top rack of the dishwasher. It also has a soft-grip handle to make prepping your ingredients easy on your hands.
Promising review: “I’m not usually a fan of kitchen gadgets because they either don’t work as advertised or are more trouble than they’re worth when it comes to cleaning them. But this little vegetable chopper is a great little tool that does a wonderful job of chopping and dicing very quickly and uniformly. It’s also very easy to clean. I use it almost daily in my kitchen.” — Randy Clark
Price: $19.99 (available in three colors)
A microwave pasta maker that’ll make it super easy to get a big bowl o’ carbs after a long day. No stove, no stress!
It yields up to four servings at a time, and is top-rack dishwasher-safe.
Promising review: “I don’t want to get all gushy over a pasta maker, but man… I really love this gizmo! I try to limit my monthly food expenditures, and the Fasta Pasta helps me work in at least one inexpensive pasta meal every week, if not more. First of all, I like spaghetti, but I’m lazy and impatient and don’t like things that take a long time to make, with a bunch of steps, and a big clean up afterward. The Fasta Pasta is perfect for me. I get the exact amount of correctly measured spaghetti; it’s faster than boiling water in a big pot then having to watch and stir the pasta; the pasta comes out perfectly cooked every time and the cleanup is a snap. No big pot, no colander, no spaghetti fork to lift out the pasta. Just the easy-to-clean Fasta Pasta, and a pot to heat up the sauce. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!” — Smilin Sam
Comes with two! For those who are fans of the
Bar Keepers Friend Classic Cleanser and Polish, this delivers the same results, but in a pre-mixed formula to make for a quicker clean. It works well against rust stains, tarnish, mineral deposits, soap scum, and indoor and outdoor grime, and is especially good on the following surfaces: stainless steel, brass, bronze, copper alloys, aluminum, ceramic, porcelain, glass, corian. Recommended to use in the kitchen (sinks, cookware, stove cooktops and exteriors, oven door windows, non-stone countertops, and plates to buff out knife marks), bathroom (sinks, bathtubs, showers, faucets, toilets, tile, and grout), and outdoors (rust stains, grills, vehicles, siding, and sporting equipment).
Promising review: “I was so bummed when I scratched up my pretty white sink with pots and pans. I thought I’d need to have it replaced or try to sand it and refinish it somehow, but I bought this stuff as a last ditch effort to fix it myself. It takes some elbow grease to make them go away, the scratches don’t just wipe off. But if you scrub at them for a few minutes they melt away pretty quickly. After two rounds my sink looks nearly brand new again. It also worked on a few mineral stains in my bathtub that I thought were permanent after soft scrub failed to remove them. Again, a little of this stuff, the scrubby side of a blue sponge, a little bit of effort and they were gone!” — Dan Borden
A milk frother that’ll allow you to enjoy a homemade latte or cappuccino with just the push of a button. It’s a heck of a lot better than getting in your car, waiting in line at Starbucks where they use some fancy schmancy giant machine to whip up your (approximately) million-dollar concoction.
So, I totally bought this on a whim on Prime Day. It was just one of those sporadic buying decisions that I had a feeling I’d use once and never use again. *I still live at home with my parents,* and they laughed at me for buying this, because I have a tendency to buy too many things that I don’t get enough use out of. Well, here we are months later, and I think my parents might even like this milk frother a tad more than I do — my mom told all of her co-workers, all of our family friends, etc. Point blank, this makes a great latte, and my dad won’t even drink coffee now if it’s not frothed first! All you do is take it out of the box, pop in two AA batteries (not included), put it into your drink, press the button at the top, and bam! It’s magic. I personally like to froth the milk a little first, then brew the coffee from my Keurig into the same cup, and then give it another little stir with the frother for good measure.
Price: $12.99+ (available in seven colors)
An adjustable rack to keep all of your under-the-sink items accessible and orderly.
Has an expandable rail, and four adjustable height levels.
Promising review: “I was super impressed with the quality of this item. It did not fit under my sink as I was hoping, but that was my fault as I didn’t measure before ordering. But what’s great about this item is that it is adjustable in many ways and I was still able to finagle it to meet my needs. You are able to adjust the height of the shelves to three different heights. And then it also adjusts in width to your precise needs. ” — staceym
Price: $19.87 (available in two finishes)
A clip-on colander that’ll make draining the liquid from the pot and pan incredibly easy and preparing dinner a lot less messy.
Designed to fit almost all round pots, pans, and bowls! It’s compact and easy-to-store. Plus, it’s BPA-free, FDA-approved, made of top-quality silicone, and dishwasher-safe!
Promising review: “After many years of failing to drain skillets and pots by using a lid, I searched for and bought this guy. Wow! I can’t believe I lived without this for so long. It’s a dream to drain water from pasta, and grease from meat. No slippage, and it works great. Just need to be a little careful if you’ve got a lot of food in the pot/pan, as some of it can escape over the top, but the use of a spoon to keep it at bay works well.” — R. Higgins
Price: $10.99+ (available in two colors)
A colorful knife set for not only adding a pop of color into your kitchen, but safely ensuring you’re not cross-contaminating during meal prep.
The set includes six knives with corresponding covers – an 8 inch chef knife, an 8 inch slicing knife, an 8 inch serrated bread knife, a 7 inch santoku knife, a 6.5 inch utility knife, and a 3.5 inch pairing knife. A non-stick coating makes slicing any and all foods less of a hassle. Just avoid putting these in the dishwasher or cleaning with hot water. If you need one more push to be convinced, check out this
BuzzFeeder’s review! And check out our picks for the best chef’s knives on BuzzFeed Reviews!
Promising review: “I saw this set in a BuzzFeed article and bought it despite having an okay block set. I’m really glad I bought these. They are super sharp, versatile, and the guards are nice so I can keep the knives in a drawer. I still have the knife block but I use these most of the time. The fun colors are a plus and the price can’t be beat. Although I’m not much of a cook, I think these are still plenty sufficient for most kitchens. It’s a bummer having to hand-wash them, but that’s a first-world problem in the first degree. This would be an ideal gift for a new graduate/college student/housewarming.” — theworldofdale
Refrigerator mats to prevent your fridge shelves from getting dirty and mildew-y. These can also slow-down the process of produce rotting, and help prevent them from getting bruised.
Comes with six mats! These are BPA-free and safe enough for food to come in contact!
Promising review: “I bought a set of these to line my refrigerator shelves. They are heavy-duty and don’t slide around. I love that I can clean them by just wiping them down, or removing them and returning them to the refrigerator without struggling to remove, clean, and replace the refrigerator shelves. After using them for a while, I bought a second set to complete the job. Love them!” — SHARON B.
Price: $9.49 (available in five colors)
A hard water boosting powder that’ll give your kitchenware a tougher clean than just detergent alone will give. Plus, it leaves behind a fresh lemon scent, and, personally, I’m a sucker for anything lemon-scented.
Just add this to your pre-wash chamber with detergent. If you don’t have a pre-wash chamber, don’t fret. Just add 2 tablespoons to the bottom of your dishwasher!
Promising review: “I could not get my flatware to come out clean from the dishwasher and I wondered if it was the hard water. I was using up to three soap blocks in each load with only partial improvement. I used this the first time and voilà! Perfectly clean flatware for the first time. I LOVE this!” — Susan A
A springform pan to yield treats so tasty, The Cheesecake Factory will be left shaking.
This fits easily into both 6 and 8 quart pressure cookers. It’s made with non-stick coating for even easier release. It’s oven safe in temperatures of up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Promising review: “So far so good! I have made several cheesecakes in the pressure cooker with this springform pan and they have turned out very well, except for the first one when I overfilled it and had a big mess. The springform releases easily and the pan clean-up is quick and easy. It makes a small, but delicious cheesecake, just don’t overfill it.” — Mom of teenagers
Price: $9.99+ (available in four sizes)
An apple slicer/corer for those who know the superior way to eat an apple is when it’s cut up… and with some peanut butter on the side.
This baby will turn your fruit into 8 (or 16) even slices, while also removing the core. The cover that comes with it protects your precious hands from the blades, so that they can be used for other things, like eating your snack! Slicer is dishwasher-safe.
Promising review: “Seriously, why has this never been invented before? It’s the best thing in the history of apples! It cuts the apples the perfect size for kids, (and even adults), and the bottom base to push the blade all the way down is a game changer. I always hated cutting apples because the last push was annoying and made slices fly everywhere. This is easy and keeps them all attached. Love, love, love it!” — jbug
Non-stick oven liners to catch things like crumbs and other food particles/residue, so all you have to do is clean these liners and not the oven itself.
Comes with three! These are PFOA-, and BPA-free, and works well in electric and gas ovens, microwaves, toasters, and can also be used as a grill or baking mat, or pan liner. They’re non-stick, reusable, can withstand temperatures of up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, and dishwasher-safe!
Promising review: “I love these liners. When stuff drips, I can just take it out and clean it in my sink in soapy water or throw it in the dishwasher. Don’t have to scrub the bottom of the oven. Just remove the liner carefully. Less need to turn on the self-cleaning feature and endure the smells and smoke that are emitted as part of that process. The worst is usually the floor of the oven and this minimizes the problem.” — wifi-er
A stainless steel measuring cup and spoon set that’ll prevent you from having to just wing it when it comes to getting the right amount of ingredients to use in a recipe.
Measuring cups include one 1 cup, one 1/2 cup, one 1/3 cup, and one 1/4 cup. Measuring spoons include one 1 tablespoon, one 1 teaspoon, one 1/2 teaspoon, and one 1/4 teaspoon. All are dishwasher-safe.
Promising review: “Great measuring cups and spoons. They are easy to take off the hook that connects them together. They store easily and fit right into each other. I have put these in the dishwasher several times and have not seen any type of rust marks, which I’ve seen happen before with other metal or stainless steel products. I’m overall happy with this purchase. They are priced well, the seller shipped promptly, and they were packaged well.” — Erin with help from Earl the cat
A spice rack drawer organizer to make looking for your favorite seasonings super easy, and preventing messy clutter in the kitchen.
Promising review: “This is one of the favorite things I’ve ever purchased from Amazon! They are so customizable and allow you to cut them and shape them to any drawer size. I think this will be my go-to gift for all of my friends who love cooking as much as I do! Freeing up cabinet space and having something that can so easily be rinsed off in the sink makes this a for sure buy!” — momonono
A better batter tool to serve as a whisk while stirring up brownie, cake, and cookie batter, and scraping the good stuff off the bowl and into the pan without needing a separate utensil.
The thick blades help to mix ingredients quickly to avoid over-beating. It has tapered silicone fins to help scrape the sides of the bowl clean. Plus, the silicone head has a long-lasting, stain-resistant color, and is heat-resistant to temps of up to 600 degrees F. Plus, it’s dishwasher-safe!
Promising review: “I was skeptical that a silicone whisk was actually going to be any better than a wooden spoon or wire whisk for mixing up pancake batter or muffins, but I’m a convert now. This thing is awesome — the silicone wings are great for scraping the sides of the bowl while you mix, and it’s super fast to completely mix wet and dry ingredients without overbeating and toughening.” — RegencyGarderobe
A container lid organizer that’ll prevent you from having to search your kitchen high and low for the lid that matches the size of the container you’re using. Not that I know from personal experience or anything what this struggle is like…
Holder is divided into three sections and is BPA- and chlorine-free, food-safe, and made of shatter-resistant plastic. Recommended to clean with mild soap and water.
Promising review: “I have several different types of tupperware and 90% of the lids I have fit into this easily. Now I can stack the actual containers separately without leaving the lids to just sit next to them, taking up space, or standing on their sides, ready to fall out if I move anything. It’s been a while since I’ve heard my husband complain about the tupperware cabinet in general, so for that reason alone I’m glad I purchased this, lol.” — KB
A grease splatter screen so you can cook up a storm without having to worry about dangerously hot oil hitting your skin.
This should fit most pots and pans. It’s made of 304-grade stainless steel and extra-fine mesh to prevent 99% of splashes. It comes with a lifetime warranty.
Promising review: “After putting it off for years making do with a cheap-o splatter screen, I finally purchased a new one. This one is great quality, and my husband and I think it will last nicely for many years to come. I love the reinforcing ‘cross-members’ and little feet to set it down on the counter without leaving a grease outline. I know you can always buy the cheapest one out there, but it is usually (in my opinion) worth it to spend a bit more for a quality product!” — Julie
Price: $14.90+ (available in four sizes)
A pre-seasoned cast iron skillet to seriously upgrade your cooking game, no matter what experience level you’re at. Plus, look at how cool it looks to serve food from the pan itself? Refer to image below.
It comes pre-seasoned and ready to use. The handle of the skillet has a hole so you can hang the skillet when not using. Recommended to hand-wash!
Promising review: “I adore this skillet. As long as you keep up with oiling and don’t use dish soap on it, the non-stick surface holds up like a charm. It is heavy and I need to buy one of those cute things to put on the handle since it gets hot when you use it on the stove top, (as cast iron does), but it is everything I expected from my first cast iron pan. It has seen a few months of pretty consistent use and it is going strong. I love being able to pan sear and then pop things into the oven.” — RDlenix

A decorating tool that’ll help even the most beginner bakers look as if they just opened their own five-star bakery.
Comes with four decorating tips, a fill tip, and two couplers, however this decorator can also be used with most standard Wilton tips! The cylinder, bottom ring, tips, and couplers are top-rack dishwasher-safe, while the plunger assembly must be hand-washed.
Promising review: “I am not a baker by any means and when I do bake cupcakes, I loathe frosting them… but, in an attempt to save money on my daughter’s birthday party I thought I would bake my own cupcakes, which meant I would have to frost them too. Desperate, I found this in my Amazon search to ease my decorating anxiety. It was easy to use, the cupcakes looked great, and clean up was super easy! I would buy again, and I will recommend to all my mommy friends!!!” — Sara Nich
A front sink tray so you can keep your sponges, scrubbers, and brushes out of the sink, because, TBH, they don’t really belong living at the bottom of it.
Includes one open tray, one accessory tray with a ring holder, and two pairs of hinges and mounting hardware.
Promising review: “Love this! No more clutter of sponges and stoppers around the sink. We installed these when swapping out the sink. Installation with no sink in place is a breeze; otherwise I can see how it might be tricky. The hinges work well. They were a little stiff at first but loosened up in a day or two. They still close with a little “snap,” which one time jettisoned the sponge into the under-sink cabinet — now I know where to look if it ever goes missing again. The trays can be slid off their mounting screws and rinsed out when they get a little dirty from storing the cleaning supplies.” — Lisa

A cooktop cleaning kit because look: you’re using the thing to make your meals, so naturally it’s going to get dirty. Sometimes things fall out of the pot, sometimes things splatter from the pan, and sometimes burns happen because you’re too busy dancing to the Jonas Brothers and forgot about your pasta. No, this has never happened to me, of course not, why would you think that?!
Comes with a 10 ounce bottle of cooktop cleaner, a cleaning pad, and a scraper. It helps to clean grease, stains, and remove burnt and baked-on deposits.
Promising review: “As soon as I used this stuff, I couldn’t believe it! We had a new stove that I didn’t clean for months and assumed the burnt pea juice (my enemy) would just be a new stain forever. However, after one application, it was basically gone. I used the scraper that came with it and did one more small application on just that spot, and it was gone! Every time I use this it looks like my stove could be brand new.” — Christi Lambertson

Promising review: “I love cauliflower, but what a pain it is to cut off the little florets. This actually works, and works well. It doesn’t seem very sharp, but it sure preps like it is.” — Animal Lover
A set of reusable silicone baking cups will make baking your yummy treats a greener and more frugal experience. You won’t have to keep buying new cups because you’ll never run out.
These food-grade silicone cups are freezer-, microwave-, oven-, and dishwasher-safe, and can withstand temperatures of up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Comes in the colors pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.
Promising review: “These little thingies are perfect! I made some muffins with them and they came out incredibly easily with no residue on the cups at all. I didn’t have to use grease or anything. The colors are bright and fun, and they you plenty of each color. These are slightly smaller than a regular cupcake pan/liner, which is actually perfect for my purposes. As others have mentioned, the cups are a bit on the flimsy side, so make sure they’re on a baking sheet before you fill them because they can be difficult to transport once full.” — kapplejack

Slow cooker liners so you can line your slow cooker with one of these babies before putting in your ingredients to make clean-up super fast and simple.
These liners are BPA-free, safe with high temps., and are FDA-compliant. These fit 3–8 quart round or oval slow cookers. They also work well for keeping your cheesecakes dry in a water bath.
Promising review: “I just purchased a slow cooker, so I ordered these liners. Man, am I glad I did! I used one to cook a whole chicken and then filled it with water to make stock once we finished eating the chicken. The liner held up to making the stock, water to the near top of the cooker, for 15 hours. Once I dipped the stock and bones out of it, all I had to do was gather the liner together at the top and throw it away. The cooker was spotless!! I had also cooked the chicken for eight hours. So, the liner held up for 23 hours of cooking without ripping at all. I am very pleased and will use them every time I use my slow cooker.” — Linda Williams

A shredder claw set to make shredding your meat super easy, and dare I say, maybe even, fun? Plus, it’s been scientifically proven that eating meat in shredded form is significantly more exciting!
These are melt-proof, made of BPA-free nylon, are FDA-approved, and heat-resistant to temperatures up to 475 degrees Fahrenheit. Plus, they’re dishwasher-safe!
Promising review: “These claws are just what you need for shredding pork, chicken, beef, or any other items. The points are sharp, narrow, and long and work well as a pair. It’s much more efficient and quicker than using two forks. I thought I might have been a little extravagant in ordering this but now I realize it is very useful beyond shredding — e. g., holding a watermelon with one hand/claw as you cut with the other hand.” — J. Renfrow

A citrus juice squeezer so you can get fresh juice from lemons, limes, and even oranges to enhance your meals, and even your cocktails!
This useful gadget is dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning.
Promising review: “I used this product to squeeze an entire bag of lemons and one of limes. It worked very well and was easy to use. I was concerned that it would take a lot of force to get the juice out, but it didn’t. This product is well-made with metal, not plastic. After using it, I can see why it has such great reviews.” — Parental Units

A five-blade herb scissor to help you make quick work of your herbs and not even bother with a cutting board.
Did you know this five-blade shear is the equivalent to 10 knife chops? Impressive, right? This is made of quality stainless-steel so it’s dishwasher-safe, and it comes with a cover case for the blades when you’re not using!
Promising review: “These scissors are the best tool ever! Instead of chopping up my fresh herbs and scraping them into whatever dish I’m making, I just hold the herbs over the dish and clip away. Fast, convenient, no mess, no fuss. In the morning, when I’m preparing a fresh salad to take to work, instead of having to drag out the knife and cutting board, I just snip the fresh basil into the salad. If you flip the cover of the scissors around, the slotted side slides out the bits stuck in the scissors. Quick, easy, and no waste. Love it!” — Amazon Customer
