Amazon

We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

Amazon

1.

A simple, no-frills insulated cooler bag that folds flat so you can fit it in your tote or purse and not worry about awkwardly carrying an empty pack home at the end of the day.


Amazon

Promising review: “This bag is great. I can pack my lunch, a couple of snacks, have plenty of room for the ice packs, and not worry about having to find room in the fridge at work. I just keep it on my desk, and everything stays nice and cold. Plus, it folds up when I’m not using it, so I don’t have to find somewhere to put it. It just tucks away in the corner of the cupboard.” —AdamJayP

Price: $7.95 (available in four colors)

Amazon

2.

A patterned box that’ll stand out from the crowd and features a zippered front pocket, an inner elastic to secure a water bottle or ice pack, and an inner mesh pouch.


Amazon

Promising review: “I love these Wildkin Lunch boxes! They are the perfect size to fit a real water bottle or thermos, sandwich, chips, apples, etc., or a plastic lunch box container. I also bought the EasyLunchboxes 3-Compartment Bento Lunch Box Containers, Set of 4, Classic and the Fit & Fresh Cool Coolers Slim Penguin Lunch Ice Packs, Multicolored, Set of 4, and they work together perfectly. After three quarters of a year of school, these are still in great shape. I bought the Big Dot Aqua and the Butterfly Garden, and they are both adorable. I would buy again!” —Book Worm Mom

Price: $13.41 (available in 29 patterns)

Amazon

3.

A leak-proof bento box with five compartments perfectly proportioned for the appetites of children ages 3 to 7.


amazon.com

Just fill the compartments with different foods, lock it, and send it on its way!

Promising review: “This is the perfect lunch box for our kindergartener. It holds enough food to fill her, and it is easy to open and quick to access. We were having trouble using multiple containers with her short lunch break — she’d barely eat! We got this to streamline everything, and she definitely has more time to eat more food when it’s all in one place. It’s well made and is holding up well so far.” —brooklyn

Price: $27.99 (available in green, blue, and pink)

Amazon

4.

A soft neoprene tote you can throw in the washing machine when your yogurt spills again…


Amazon

Promising review: “I’m a dude. I bring lunch to work every day. I care about aesthetics, and I can never be caught dead carrying a grocery store plastic bag to work to carry my food. This is super well made, aesthetically pleasing, insulated well, and inexpensive. There’s nothing more I could ask for in a lunch bag. The neoprene is pretty stretchy, so it expands to accommodate a fair amount of stuff. I also like that it’s machine-washable. It’s by no means leakproof, but the neoprene is fairly absorbent. I’ve had some spills but never leaked outside.” —hpsky

Price: $14.97 (available in 16 styles)

Amazon

5.

A tote you won’t be ashamed to carry around at all — in fact, you’ll probably want to show this off to all your friends.


Amazon

It’s insulated with a zipper closure and exterior pocket. Plus, it comes with an ice pack.

Promising review: “This is a very cute little lunch bag. The first day I took it to work, the ladies in my office all gushed over it and wanted to know where to buy one. I love that the ice pack is included. The inside is made of nice smooth insulation material. It’s kind of small inside once you close it though. I put two sandwich boxes inside, and I had some trouble zipping it. My food was cold at lunch, but at the end of an eight-hour shift, the ice pack was fully melted (which is fine — just want to let you know realistic expectations — it’s not going to keep a drink cold all day, for example).” —Linda Fox

Price: $10.26+ (available in four stylws)

Amazon

6.

A two-tier bento box with three compartments for packing a variety of food, plus reusable utensils so you can continue to do your part to be a little greener.


Amazon

It’s made of BPA-free materials that are microwave-, dishwasher-, and freezer-safe. You also get a sealing strap and a recipe e-book with 30 lunch ideas to get you started.

Promising review: “I am loving this bento box. I bought this for myself to bring my lunch to work, and I am very pleased with my purchase. It works well as portion control, yet it seems to hold quite a bit of food. The box comes with a dividing lid that holds reusable plastic utensils, and the elastic band keeps it all together. The bottom is deep enough that I can set silicone muffin cups in it to keep some of my foods separate, and I have not had issues with them spilling out (but I do keep it upright in a lunch tote). The top portion is shallower than the bottom, but I can fit a stack of three or four crackers without crushing them with the lid. I like that they are dishwasher-safe, but so far I have only hand-washed it.” —QueenB

Price: $14.99 (available in four colors)

Amazon

7.

A lunch bag that has freezable gel built into the bag so you don’t have to worry about adding an ice pack. Just make sure to put it in the freezer overnight (12 hours) so it’s ready to go in the morning.


Amazon

Promising review: “I really like this lunch bag! I didn’t want to mess with freezer packs all the time. I found this and decided it would be the perfect alternative. I haven’t had any problems with food getting warm too quickly. It rolls up conveniently so it can be stashed in the freezer to refreeze when not in use. My only issue with it is that it’s not the easiest to keep clean. If any crumbs fall in it, they’re not that easy to get out. I expect this with any soft-sided lunch bag though.” —Andrew Robben

Price: $28.37 (available in 25 styles)

Amazon

8.

An insulated tote for any prankster who wants a side of laugh with their lunch every day.


Amazon

Promising review: “I got this for my hubby who works at a hospital. It was a hit, and his co-workers love it too. The product is actually nicer than I thought it would be. It’s fully insulated and has little pockets inside.” —RoMama

Price: $13.23

Amazon

9.

A soft lunch kit to help your child show all their friends just how cool of a parent you are for getting one that matches whatever they’re obsessed with right now.


Amazon

Promising review: “This lunch box is super cute and good quality. It is soft (I was expecting a hard plastic) and insulated. It appears that it will hold up for the entire school year. Just the right size to fit an entire lunch, including an ice pack and a drink. I would recommend.” —Anonymous Customer

Price: $6.24+ (available in 37 styles)

Amazon

10.

A chic bag that looks more like a cute purse or tote, if carrying around a big lunch bag just isn’t your thing.


Amazon

Promising review: “I’ve fallen in love with my lunch bag. It is very cute and stylish. When it first arrived, I was upset because it looked small, BUT it actually fits more than I thought. I can fit my two Nutribullet cups with three small Tupperware containers OR my two Nutribullet cups and three bottles of water. I pack my lunch at night, so I put everything in my bag and leave it in the refrigerator overnight. My drinks remain cold throughout the day at work, so I’d say this bag is well insulated. I am a satisfied buyer!” —Amazon Customer

Price: $13.99 (available in 13 styles)

Amazon

11.

A ThinkFit bag that will help you crush your food and fitness goals because it’s stocked with six portion-control containers, an ice pack, a pill box, and a shaker cup. Score!


Amazon

Promising review: “I’ve had my lunch box for over a month now. I TRULY LOVE IT. I love the size and quality. The ice pack lasts for nearly a 12-hour shift. The containers are really great, no leaking, no staining. I have plenty of room for meals and snacks and the zipper pocket holds my vitamins and drink powders and an extra protein bar or two for super-crazy long days in the ER. I can unzip the main compartment and find what I want quickly without digging (like I had to do with my old cooler-type lunch box).” —Amazon Customer

Price: $37.95 (available in four styles)

Amazon

12.

A 54 oz bowl with tons of compartments, if desk salads are more your style.


amazon.com

This one has a tray for toppings and a container for dressing, so it doesn’t get soggy before you eat it — preventing you from the tragedy of a truly sad desk salad.

Promising review: “This salad bowl is amazing. It’s large enough for a deliciously filling lunch but small enough so I don’t feel like I’m bringing my kitchen with me to work. I like the divided area that fits on top of the bowl, which holds my greens down, while also making sure I have enough space for mixing once I’m ready for all items to come together in perfect harmony.” —Jo Dangerously

Price: $14.99 (available in four colors)

Amazon

13.

Or one with an adjustable and detachable strap to help you easily carry it no matter how much food you stuff into it.


Amazon

It also features a front pocket and two side pockets for additional storage.

Promising review: “This is a beautiful lunch bag. It’s adult-sized, which is terrific. The insulation works well for hours. There is enough room to carry a few drinks as well as food, and there is an adjustable shoulder strap as well as a handle. And outside pockets. This is just what I was looking for! I loved the first one so much that I bought a second in a different color!” —Colleen

Price: $14.99 (available in five colors)

Amazon

14.

An insulated box made with food-grade aluminum foil and padded 4mm foam for a durable and tear-resistant bag that’ll survive basically anything you put it through. (Rolling in the backseat of the car for a week included.)


Amazon

Promising review: “I’m a college student that stays on campus from 8: 30 am to 8 pm from Monday through Thursday, and this lunch bag is great. Not only does it fit my aesthetic, but it also holds all the containers that I want to bring (two big-ish sized glass containers) and my extra stuff, which is some yogurt and peanuts in a small container. It fits perfectly, and I even have a little bit of room left over so I don’t have to force my bag closed. It also keeps my stuff cool or hot for a reasonable time. I’m glad I bought this bag.” —Pamela

Price: $10.99 (available in five styles)

Amazon

15.

A double-deck cooler to help you separate what needs to be warm and cold so you don’t end up eating cold chips for lunch again.


Amazon

Plus, it has a front zipper pocket and two side pockets to fit small things.

Promising review: “This is a big-daddy lunch box! Don’t get this unless you are serious about lunch! This is a double-decker lunch box that is spacious in both compartments. And don’t be fooled by the top compartment. The opening might trick you into thinking it’s small, but I am able to easily fit three water bottles in the top with other candy bars and small snacks, and it still zips easily. The bottom is spacious as well and accommodates all different kinds of Tupperware, even taller ones. The zippers are still intact, plus it’s made of durable, quality material. I’ve had it a couple of months, and it hasn’t given me any trouble.” —Jwoodall

Price: $16.99+ (available in two sizes and eight colors)

Amazon

16.

Or one made with military-grade materials so you know that it will be ~strong~ and ~mighty~.


Amazon

Promising review: “When I tell you this is the best lunchbox I’ve ever owned… I MEAN IT. This is awesome. I don’t even have to put an ice pack in there to keep my food cold throughout the day. If I have two cold water bottles in there with my food, my food stays cool until lunchtime! (I make my lunch around 5: 30 am, and don’t eat lunch until noon). Now that’s quality! Also being a veteran myself, I never mind supporting a veteran-owned and operated business! You guys have my full support! I’ll probably buy another just for a backup. The quality is outstanding right out of the box.” —DanTheVanMan23

Price: $19.99+ (available in two sizes and five colors)


Amazon

Promising review: “I’m glad I stumbled upon this bag. The look is rugged and modern, and the leak-proof insulation works great and came in handy when I spilled my soup inside the lunch bag. I bought one for my son as well, and he loves it and takes it to school with him every day. I highly recommend it.” —Blanca Tapia

Price: $12.99 (available in 19 styles)

Amazon

18.

A clear bag for anyone in an industry who requires one. This one is made with good quality plastic and an all-around strap so you can carry a heavier lunch inside.


Amazon

Promising review: “I buy a lot of clear containers because I work in retail, and we are required to have them. Most clear bags are stiff, thin, and poorly constructed. This bag, however, is fantastic. The plastic is thicker, yet supple. The zippers and seams have held up for months of daily use. It’s easy to clean and fits wonderfully in my locker. I bought the smallest size, and it fits everything I need for lunch for one person. I will buy this product again, but because of the sturdy craftsmanship, I won’t need to for a long time.” —Garrett

Price: $12.97+ (available in three sizes)

Amazon

19.

A bag with pockets in the front and the back so you can store your condiments and utensils or whatever you need but don’t want to use or eat cold once lunchtime rolls around.


Amazon

Promising review: “This bag is amazing. I have recently started meal prepping and taking my lunch to work as I work in EMS. This is durable and gets bounced around all day behind my driver’s seat. It holds 3 meal prep containers AND a full-size blender bottle with extra room. In the side pockets, I keep silverware and condiments. Plus, it’s cute AF.” —Elizabeth Wicklund

Price: $12.88+ (available in five colors)

Amazon 42 Things You Can Get On Amazon That You Should Just Own Already

by | Jan 13, 2020 | Trending

Amazon

We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

Amazon

1.

An Instant Pot to completely redefine your cooking abilities. Grab this thing and cook entire meals with a literal push of a button. The future is now, people!


Amazon

The Jetsons have nothing on this thing.

P.S. the Duo Plus replaces nine common kitchen appliances. It can be used as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, and egg cooker, with the ability to sauté, steam, warm, sterilize…it even makes cakes. Read all about why this thing is changing how we cook in my BuzzFeeder coworker’s review.

Promising Review: “I deliberated about buying one of these for so long (over a year). I regret all of this deliberation, because now that I have it, I’m not sure how I lived without it. Rice turns out perfectly every time. It’s amazing. I push a button and walk away and end up with edible rice every single time. I love that this has so many uses in our combined vegetarian/omnivorous household. This Instant Pot produced the only pork dish that my husband has ever liked. I made an amazing vegan curry. I’ve made soy milk, almond milk, and cashew milk yogurts, and they’ve all been fantastic. I’ll never ‘boil’ an egg any other way ever again. Eggs turn out perfectly every time and they are so easy to peel. Stop deliberating and buy this now!” —Laura

Price: $59.92+ (available in three styles and sizes)

Amazon

2.

A charcoal peel-off mask that’ll help unclog your pores and remove sebum so you won’t be se-bummed about blackheads and buildup anymore. This even includes a silicone brush so your mask goes on smooth and you won’t waste a smidgen of product.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “This is the BEST face mask out there. It is extremely disgusting when you see everything that comes out of your face after peeling it off, but extremely satisfying! I have bought this product over and over again and will continue to. I personally love the feeling of filth being ripped away, so I enjoyed it immensely! Even the next day my skin glowed! The bottle is small, but goes a long way! Will definitely buy again!” —Maria Pett

Price: $14.59

Amazon

3.

A pack of four Magic Erasers sure to finally scrub away the dirt and grime that’s been giving you a hard time.


Amazon

Promising review: “Basically the best cleaning tool ever. Walls, counters, sinks, toys, you name it, I’ve used a Magic Eraser on it. We have a light-color sink basin in the kitchen and I use these once a week to keep it sparkling white. I used to have to use heavy-duty cleaner but just a quick wipe down with the Magic Eraser and it’s good as new!” —seven4eleven

Price: $4.94

Amazon

4.

A box of 12 Soylent bottles for the ultra-efficient among us who are too busy *killing it* at life to make a full meal. Ever wondered what success tastes like? Hint: it’s this.


Amazon

You probably can’t survive entirely on Soylent, but each bottle has enough nutritional value to replace a whole meal. A bottle has 400 calories and contains 20% of your daily vitamins. Go ahead and gobble up all that glorious info, I’ll wait.

Promising review: “I decided to try this after hearing about it on my favorite podcast (Stuff You Should Know), and I am so glad I did! I am a busy young professional who is moderately health obsessed. I found myself eating out WAY too often (several times a week) when I started a very competitive and time consuming job. Once I didn’t have the time to meticulously prepare everything I ate, I began gaining weight and losing energy. I put off trying Soylent because I am a picky eater but I decided to take the risk. I AM SO GLAD THAT I DID! I am now drinking half a bottle every morning for breakfast and the other half around 3pm, and it has completely changed my diet for the better. I am no longer starving throughout the day and binging on takeout when I finally get the chance to eat. I am losing weight, saving money, and finally getting back to my regular workouts. Stop thinking about it, and just try it. You won’t regret it.” —ljg98

Price: $37.05 (available in three flavors)

Amazon

5.

A pack of pimple patches – they’re gonna save your skin when you’re so sick of your whiteheads you think you might pop.


Amazon, amazon.com, amazon.com

Each box comes with 36 patches.

Promising review: “I’m a 47 year old woman and have had adult cystic acne for 12 years. Four months ago I got the worst cystic zit of my life. It kept closing up and then refilling. I was so depressed and researched these dots online. I paid for next day shipping and was amazed how great they work! These were able to drain the zit and keep it draining so it couldn’t close and refill and get big and angry. Get these! Seriously, they really are a GOD send!” —auntylizzy

Price: $12.34

Amazon

6.

A clever storage cube so you can keep 96 pens, pencils, markers, brushes, or whatever tiny tools you currently have lying around upright and organized.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I love everything about this. It’s perfect for my desk. I’m an artist, and I bought two for all my markers. It’s lightweight, very classy looking, and the price is great. I put one on each end of my desk. They’re small but hold so many markers or pencils.” —Sherrie Stone

Price: $6.96

Amazon

7.

A set of daringly darling measuring spoons that’ll be the cherry on top of your kitchen tools.


Amazon

Promising review: “These are really cute and of good quality. And the leaf is an egg separator, which is neat.” —Amazon Customer

Price: $15.20

Amazon

8.

A seat filler, because you’ve had too many disasters strike at the drive-through…you need something that’s sure to save future french fries from certain doom.


Amazon

This product has over 4,800 five-star reviews!

Promising review: “I have to admit, my expectations weren’t very high. I thought it was more of a joke when my husband got this for me for Christmas. Little did I realize, it would be one of my favorite gadgets ever! I don’t know if I realized just how many things went missing in my seat gap. It has really saved a lot of things from disappearing into that black hole. It was easy enough to fit into my car and it’s soft! It’s just like an extension of my seat, except it fits every curve of my seat! There really isn’t another product that compares to this. That’s why I gave it five stars!” —Tessa Forbes

Price: $19.99

Amazon

9.

A snazzy stainless steel shelf organizer that’ll add a sleek look to your place *and* help you use up every nook and cranny of counter space in your minuscule studio.


Amazon

Promising review: “This is perfect for my bathroom counter to make more space. It was cluttered before with stuff I use daily and don’t like the hassle of constantly removing and replacing from drawers. Having it all stacked neatly to the corner is much more tidy and convenient. Assembly was easy.” —JDH

Price: $22.43 (available in two shapes)

Amazon

10.

A can of erasers that’s gonna make any recipient say “Olive these very much.”


Amazon

Promising review: “This is a cleverly designed product with entertaining packaging. The hole is large enough to accommodate a small finger, like an actual olive, but narrows inside so the olive eraser can be pushed onto the end of a pencil. It’s a great gift for anyone who writes with a pencil (whether they like eating black olives, or prefer sticking exclusively to the non-edible variety).” —Mag

Price: $10.99 (available in three styles)

Amazon

11.

A bottle of poop spray to save your bathroom from, well, yourself. Just spray it in the tank before you go and everything is sure to be coming up roses!


Amazon

Read all about how well this works in my other coworker’s post about the travel size version.

Promising review: “We are a family of six in a small one-bathroom house. This is, to put it lightly, a horrific nightmare – particularly after my teenage son spends some time in the bathroom. After a couple of weeks of gentle encouragement (‘YOU ARE KILLING EVERYONE. SPRAY THAT STUFF ON THE WATER BEFORE YOU POOP OR I’M TAKING AWAY YOUR PHONE AND, SO HELP ME GOD, I WILL CALL YOUR GIRLFRIEND AND TELL HER EXACTLY WHY YOU GOT IT TAKEN AWAY.’) he started using it regularly. The bathroom is much less disgusting now after he leaves.” —Supa D

Price: $9.75 (available in seven sizes)

Amazon

12.

A pack of 200 earring backs that’ll always have your back, ya hear?


Amazon

Promising review: “These little silicone backs are small, but they tightly hold the earring in place really well. And with 200 pieces in the box, if you drop one (you will), it really doesn’t matter. Now I can safely wear the earrings in my jewelry box that are missing one or both backs. This was an excellent (and inexpensive) purchase for me. Highly recommend!” —Carol R. Slicher

Price: $4.98

Amazon

13.

An elevated stainless steel baking and cooling rack for anyone who wants to take their cooking skills to the next level.


Amazon

Promising review: “These are great quality! They’re great for cooling or heating. The cooling rack won’t tip over on you. I’ve used them for cooling cupcakes and used them to finish up my coated chicken wings – it gets them up off the baking sheet and helps bake the sauce on nicely. These should last a lifetime as they are truly great quality! I am not one to take the time to do many detailed reviews but this product is worth it.” —DLM MI

Price: $13.99+ (available in six sizes)

Amazon

14.

A reusable silicone food bag with an air-tight seal you can use to replace all the plastic bags in your place – store leftovers, heat up food in the microwave, or simply to store your snacks in.


Amazon

You can also use it for sous vide and throw them in the dishwasher when you’re done!

Promising review: “I’ve tried a LOT of reusable bags as there are a lot of options out there all using a variety of materials. The fabric ones just get gross over time. The vinyl ones are hard to clean and aren’t usually dishwasher safe. There are other silicone ones that need a separate rod to close them that you can easily lose. This one is the most simple and easy to use. No separate pieces to lose. They can withstand any temperature in the /microwave/dishwasher/whatever. And if they get gunky they are very easy to clean and I trust that they aren’t hiding gross crumbs in any of the crevices.” —Megan A.

Price: $11.99 (available in two sizes and seven colors)

Amazon

15.

A pair of computer glasses with a lens that’ll keep your eyes from aching when you’re staring at screens all day. If you work at a desk, it’s time to put on a pair of these pretties.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Each pair of glasses is slightly tinted to filter out the intense blue light of computer and phone screens. One coworker wrote about how you need these glasses if you work at a computer all day, and I think I better listen.

Promising review: “These are exactly what was advertised. They are lightly tinted but still remove a decent amount of blue light. They are lightweight and quite comfortable for me. And my wife even says they look good on me, too. I am going to buy another pair for my work office.” —Donald Sensing

Price: $8.99+ (available in 14 strengths and 37 colors)

Amazon

16.

A cast iron skillet to make it look like you have a ton of skill(et)s in the kitchen. And make your food taste *chef’s kiss* delicious.


Amazon

My husband and I finally decided to get a cast iron skillet after watching one too many cooking shows that insisted it’d change the way we cook. Turns out chefs know what they’re talking about, because we will never go without one of these again. You can also get a single serving sized skillet. I personally recommend this, my stomach is much happier because of it.

Price: $29.99

Amazon

17.

A makeup brush cleaner you’re gonna be glad to get – especially when you realize just how dirty the brush you’ve been rubbing all over your face is.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “You can’t go wrong with this purchase! I have a lot of brushes and it takes no time at all to clean them! I just use a drop or two of Dawn dish soap then rub them on the mat. Although there are suction cups on the bottom, when I cleaned my beauty blenders I did have to hold the mat, but I wasn’t annoyed at all because they were completely cleaned! Long story short, buy this. You won’t regret it.” —Pam C

Price: $10.99

Amazon

18.

A toilet paper holder that’s sure to delight people who aren’t ~sheepish~ about sporting some adorable, and useful, bathroom storage.


Amazon

Promising review: “This is a super cool addition to any bathroom area. It holds jumbo rolls too! It looks good hanging on the wall or standing up.” —Andy N.

Price: $34.99

Amazon

19.

A bag of organic Death Wish coffee for anyone who truly believes in the phrase “death before decaf”.


Amazon

Which should be allllmost everyone.

Promising review: “Ok folks words of warning….if you have heart conditions, ration out your coffee. If you drink 24 oz Starbucks’ grande, you need a 8 oz. of this as your FIRST cup. I’m serious; heed my warning or you could end up cleaning your entire house, doing all your yard work, making love to your partner, waxing your car, building a garage or single handedly raising the Titanic on your own; all in the fist hour after drinking this wonderful coffee. You have been warned!” —ITsTheXFactor

Price: $19.96

Amazon

20.

A hideaway plunger that’ll help you hide the grossest part of necessary bathroom tools and pretend it doesn’t exist, until you really need it.


Amazon

Promising review: “I have two of these in my home and the plunger works as a plunger should. That is enough discussion of that. The coolest part is the holder. I like having a plunger at the ready for those moments when it is necessary but prefer not to set them directly on the floor, nor do I want to see them, so the holder is perfect. As I lift the weight of the plunger up, the caddy opens and stays open until I place the plunger back in, then it closes and my plunger is out of sight. Yay!!!” —Jill P.

Price: $32.72

A cordless Dyson – if you have floors you’re gonna be floored by how well this vacuum works.


Amazon

Read my BuzzFeed coworker’s review on this game changing vacuum to figure out if it’s right for you! Spoiler alert: It is.

Promising review: “I always wondered what the hype was all about for Dyson vacuums. Now I know. I just traded in my heavy, corded vacuum for the this animal and wow am I impressed! It doesn’t lose suction and has enough battery life to take care of about 2000 square feet in one go, with multiple stops to empty the dirt cup. I also love how convenient it is to store.” —Rachel M

An electric kettle so you can put the kettle to the metal and heat yourself up a strong cup of chamomile before your 9pm bedtime. I support this. A lot.


Amazon

Promising review: “This is a great kettle and oh so cheap!! It’s easy to use and works very well. It has clear indicators for the amount of water you are filling and gets to boiling hot in about a minute. The automatic off switch is perfect for mornings because you can do other things while the water boils. I love this little thing.” —Darin French

A foot cream that’s sure to save your skin when dryness, smelliness, or sweatiness has you feeling de-feet-ed.


Amazon, amazon.com

Read all about this cult favorite foot cream to find out if it’s right for you.

Promising review: “I’m honestly quite surprised by this product. I have pretty nasty feet, especially at the heels. I normally use the cheese grater tool on my heels and the balls of my feet every few weeks and, while that works, it usually leaves my heels a bit sensitive after use. I’m on week two of using this foot cream (after seeing it on a TV commercial) and I have to say, the results are pretty amazing. My heels are healing and, while I still have some thick and rough skin on the heels, it’s been dramatically reduced. My heels actually look somewhat healthy.” —The Penguin

A KitchenAid mixer to transform your kitchen, and your cooking, after you watch Salt Fat Acid Heat (i.e. your uncertified, but complete, cooking education) and realize what food can do.


Amazon

Promising review: “I love, love, love my mixer! I leave this little beauty out on my counter because it’s such a pretty thing to look at, not to mention that it’s ready to use as soon as I need it. When I get a sudden urge to make brownies or bake a loaf of bread for dinner, it’s so easy to just grab my ingredients and whatever attachment I need and whip something up. Cleaning up is easy with the stainless bowls too. There are so many colors to choose from, there is no way you can’t find one that is an aesthetically pleasing addition to your kitchen. One other thing I love is that the attachments can be used with older mixers, meaning I don’t need to worry about not being able to buy new attachments as they come available even after I’ve had mine for years. It’s the best!” —Clipper 56

A darling reusable grocery bag for shoppers who know that having less plastic in life will ~produce~ some seriously satisfying results in the future.


Amazon

Promising review: “I can’t say enough good things about these bags. These hold a lot and are very strong. One of the best features are the long handles that allow me to carry a full bag over my shoulder, which is easier for carrying purchases into the house. I have these in the car and carry them with me into the store so that I am saving on paper bags.” —Karen B

A fabric defuzzer sure to clean up sweaters, sofas, and other aging fabrics that have been a real ~pill~ lately.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I didn’t think it through when I threw some dark shirts and sweaters in the wash with a couple of light towels. They came out with all those fuzzies. I ordered one of these based on the price and customer reviews and I can see why this is rated so high. Since it’s so portable, I just sat on the couch and shaved two shirts and a pair of cottony exercise pants while watching tv. I probably would have never worn these items (at least not outside the house!) again if it wasn’t for this great little gadget.” —Paula Nelson

A box of plant food to make gardening so much easier this spring, the thought of working outside will really ~grow~ on you.


Amazon

Promising review: “I love this!! Years ago I worked in an office and there was a Poinsettia plant that had seen better days. My coworker was going to throw it out but I told her to let me try to revive it, so I used this stuff just like I used it on my house plants and nursed the plant along. It was like a miracle when right around Christmas the Poinsettia plant I cared for displayed the bright red leaves!!! The other people in the office had told me the plant would die, so you can imagine their faces when they saw the results of the Miracle-Gro!” —Doug W.

A Tubshroom that’ll get you (and your drain) out of some seriously hairy situations.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Read this BuzzFeeder’s review to find out why this thing is so amazing.

Promising review: “This is amazing. I have long hair and recently had a baby. It’s a wonder I still have any hair based on the clumps I see falling out on a regular basis. This means the poor tub drain is getting clogged every time we turn around, and we’re spending ridiculous amounts of time with that spiky stick thing you shove down there and then pull out over and over. I figured if this even worked to catch half of my hair then it would be worth its salt. Holy moly. When they say it catches every hair they aren’t kidding. We clean it off about twice A WEEK! And when they say it’s easy to clean, they are right again. A swipe with toilet paper and the hair blob comes right off to be flushed down the toilet. I’ve already told so many people about this product because I love it so much. Fantastic!!!” —sasamo

A mildew resistant shower curtain liner so you can clean your body in a place that’s actually clean.


Amazon

Promising review: “This is the best shower curtain ever. Not only is this shower curtain CHEAP, but because of it, my shower is really staying mold and mildew free. I am so sick and tired of buying every single ‘mildew resistant’ shower curtain I can find. It is so annoying to have one for a month or so, only to see it get wrecked and dirty and impossible to clean. So far, I have had the same one of these inside of my shower for six months, only needing minor cleaning.” —DBomz

Promising review: “Baths have changed for me forever now! I can actually FILL THE TUB and not hear that dreaded sound of half my water (and my expensive magnesium flakes, essential oils, organic bubble baths, and other fancy therapeutic ingredients) tragically vanishing down the drain. If you’re a larger person trying to fit in a smaller tub, especially, you know…THE STRUGGLE IS REAL. Now I can take more baths and enjoy more warm coziness.

With three different cover designs, the cover material is somewhat textured and the font on the front is lightly embossed printed in gold ink. The inside cover is also printed in gold ink with a lovely pattern. On the inside it has lined pages with gold print. These are almost too beautiful to write in!

Amazon

This has a water level indicator and an LED nightlight. It includes a filter, but you can also get refills when the water starts to seem less than fresh.

Promising review: “Cats aren’t prone to drinking enough water and they also abhor getting their whiskers wet. This fountain was a huge hit from the moment I set it up and solved both of those problems. My kitty now guzzles water any time she wishes, which is definitely more than before (and yay, I don’t have to turn the sink on for her now, which was the only way she’d drink water). This is fantastic!” —Pgilly

A password journal, because making *and* remembering unique passwords is an albatross we all must live with, and this will make it SO much easier.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I LOVE this little book! What an awesome idea someone had when they came up with this! I have always had to write my passwords in some sort of notebook/journal since I have so many accounts and can never remember any of them, but this just made it SO much easier! It’s in alphabetical order which is super convenient and it’s discreet yet not boring enough to get shuffled away with other paperwork and notebooks.” —Erika Gustafson

Amazon

The Echo Dot can set alarms, make shopping lists, play music, dim the lights, tell you about the weather…it’s a little scary how much it’s capable of!

Promising review: “I have friends and family who have made fun of me for using the Echo Dot around my home. Well, I gave a few as gifts. ‘Why would I ever need something like this’ turned into love with it the first hour! The music, the information, and the whole Alexa experience made her a huge believer. The same thing happened with my sister and my niece. They loved it. Now we also ‘drop in’ to talk to one another. I’d say it was a huge hit and based on my personal experiences plus their enthusiastic acceptance, I have to give Alexa and the Echo Dot five stars.” —Greg C.

A Blueapple freshness extender that’ll keep all of your produce fresh as can be until you’re ready to actually use it. No more buying kale, so full of hope, only to let it wilt in the fridge in two days.


Amazon

The Blueapple works by absorbing ethylene gas, which is what causes produce to ripen. Each Blueapple lasts for three months.

Promising review: “It works. Simple as that. I have even ordered more because it works wonders in my vegetable drawer and also in my fruit basket. Before it seemed things would go bad so fast (three to four days). Now I can see veggies last two weeks — some fruits a week longer than expected.” —MFC

A sleep eye mask with Bluetooth headphones so you can tear your eyes away from your laptop screen while also keeping yourself a little entertained as you drift asleep. Difficult to remember the last time I fell asleep without listening to a podcast.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “The first thing I noticed was how soft it is. I have tried other sleep masks but they usually end up with some seam feeling scratchy on my nose. I love the size of this and how well it fits with the adjustable velcro straps. It blocks light very well, which is great for me as I cannot stand any light when I sleep. I also use a sound machine app and had no trouble pairing this to my phone and playing my sounds. It has really good quality audio and was still playing when I woke up in the morning after about six hours.” —TSpencer

Promising review: “This is the greatest product EVER — it lives up to all hype. I used it to repair the bands on several IRREPLACEABLE glass rings. Not only is it rubbery enough to make a comfortable fit and sticky enough to bond to glass, it’s many colors made matching a breeze! I’ve already used it to repair broken earbuds, place nearly invisible hooks everywhere so chargers don’t get tangled up in my iRobot vacuum, and even used it to make hanging loops on jars so I could put my collection of completely random tillandsia gardens on the wall! I couldn’t recommend more highly.” —Fawn Force

If it had more than three credit card slots I would use it as my everyday wallet because that’s how much I love it. My pen kept falling out so I would suggest using a pen that has a clip in it.

We switched to those awesome deep pocketed sheets a few years ago which helped, but he even manages to get those to slide up each night. Bought these and we have NEVER once had to adjust the sheet in the morning! These are amazing! These are on that list of things you never knew how you lived without them before.” —LindseyB

Promising review: “This stuff is amazing. I’ve been a terrible nail biter since I was a young child, and I tried everything to stop. I hated my hands and was so ashamed of how they looked, but I couldn’t help it. I tried rubber bands, mindfulness meditation, and all sorts of other ‘no bite’ polishes that looked awful and washed off too quickly or didn’t taste bad enough to be a deterrent. I committed to putting a layer of this on every other day. It’s now been three months, and my nails look amazing. The urge to bite has lessened, but I don’t think it will ever go away, so I plan to use this polish for years to come. The taste is so strong and immediately bitter, and it really lingers on your lips and tongue for a while. It’s an amazing product, and I highly recommend it.” —Lydia G Morgan

Amazon, amazon.com

The set comes with four cubes of different sizes as well as a drawstring bag for shoes. Never attempt to shield your crisp white shirt from a dirty shoe by wedging clean socks between them again!

Promising review: “Wow — why did it take me so long to buy something like this?! I recently packed for a work conference that was out of the country and decided to try these out to keep myself more organized. What a fantastic idea that was! By rolling everything, I was able to fit six pairs of pants into the large cube with room to spare, 12 shirts/sweaters in the second largest cube, and all my pajamas, socks, undershirts, bras, and underwear in the last two, all with extra room available if I needed it. My suitcase was impressively organized and clean if I do say so myself. I also threw four pairs of shoes into the drawstring bag that comes with everything, so that was a nice little addition as well. I highly recommend these cubes. They felt very durable, fit perfectly into my checked bag, and managed to store a lot more than I expected. I don’t plan to ever travel without them again!” —cmr113

I just stick it to the dishwasher and turn it so they know if the dishes are clean or dirty. I’ve had this for five or more years now. I love it.” —Brighteyez

A set of nesting bowls and measuring spoons so you can finally live the organized kitchen drawer life you’ve always dreamt of. Bowls not clattering onto your head every time you open a cabinet? Incredible.


Amazon

Promising review: “This bowl and measuring set is great for someone who wants to add some color to their kitchen but doesn’t want to give up a lot of space. I have a small kitchen with limited cabinet space, so this set was the perfect solution to my issue. The bowls are very sturdy and work well and the measuring set is great. It is nice to have everything all in one place and not have to search for a bowl or a cup to measure when cooking. I take this out and I am ready to cook. The non-slip base on the bowls is a nice feature and keeps the bowl in place while mixing ingredients.” —Trickster

A bottle of wrinkle releaser spray so you can get ready on time and look professional — I know, a novel concept.

A Baggu to help you reduce the amount of plastic bags you use. This guy folds into a little pouch so you can stick it in your car/purse/anywhere and *actually* remember to bring it shopping.


Amazon

Promising review: “This is my second Baggu purchase. I have previously purchased one other standard nylon Baggu as well as the baby Baggu, which I frequently use to carry my lunch or for small shopping errands. I love that the Baggu of any size is so lightweight and can be folded up neatly into a pouch to drop into a purse, trunk, wherever. I keep one in my handbag, office desk drawer and car, and have found it much easier to avoid unnecessary usage of plastic shopping bags. It also takes up a lot less space than my other reusable bags, which makes storing them convenient and easy. Finally, the best part is that the Baggu is washable, which means no worrying about getting it dirty over time. Overall, this has been a great product that I would recommend to anyone looking to reduce plastic bag usage with a much more reliable and convenient carry option.” —MFarrington

A Tile Mate with a replaceable battery so you can track any of your belongings and find them if they’re lost. Yes, even the most valuable thing of all: a pet!


Amazon, amazon.com

Attach the Tile to any of your valuables, and track it through an app on your phone! You can even have the Tile make a noise to help you find items that are out of sight.

Promising review (left photo): “I’ve been using Tiles for several years now, and this is the big product upgrade I’ve been waiting for — the replaceable battery. When you combine this with the extended range and louder ring tone, I’ve put them on everything valuable now! We’ve got them on all our car keys, backpacks/purses, wallets, suitcases, kids’ backpacks, bikes, and now even our dogs, as you can see from the photo!” —Tech geek

A NYX setting spray for anyone whose face is perfectly made up at the beginning of the day and…melting off by the end. Your hard work deserves to be preserved.


amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “This spray is everything! Like, oh my gosh. I notice the difference if I forget to spray this on. I’ve walked through the humid city of New Orleans in the middle of July and my makeup stayed on from the time I got to work and was mostly still there by the time I got home, which was nine hours later. I can’t rave enough about this, and I’m very picky when it comes to makeup.” —missyj95

1.

A rapid egg cooker, which prepares six eggs in any manner your heart desires — hard-, medium-, and soft-boiled eggs, two poached eggs, scrambled eggs, you name it.


Amazon

Promising review: “I love hard-boiled eggs for protein especially when I’m on the go as a student/worker but it’s hard to wait for the water to boil then put in the eggs and get ready all at the same time. This cooker is amazing!! Saves me time, it’s quick, and I don’t have to watch it while it cooks — I can go get ready and then I hear a loud buzzer notifying me when the eggs are done! (The buzzer is really loud; sounds like a basketball game buzzer.) I was surprised how fast the eggs cooked.” —OnAJourney

A floating shelf — with an emphasis on the “floating” — that actually conceals every trace of hardware to create the illusion of levitating books.


amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “These are so much fun! We ordered the small size, which fits standard hardback books (approximately five to seven hardbacks in my experience). They’re a great way to add some extra storage to our very small home, and we’ve placed them in our hallway so people ask us about them all the time. I’d highly recommend!” —LaBuenaVidaMere

Price: $10+ (also available in sets of three for $29.95+)

Amazon

3.

A surge protector with six pivoting outlets to enable your gadget-hoarding tendencies.


Amazon

Promising review: “I love that I can choose whether each plug is front-facing or turned to the side — makes for great cord management. I also love that the design uses the TOP plug on the outlet. So many I found use the bottom plug and all those reviewers complain that the weight of the adapters/cords pull the thing out of the wall. Finally, I like the versatility of being able to screw it into the outlet center point if you need the additional stability, but also that you don’t have to do that if you want something more easily removable.” —Susan B.

Price: $14.99

Amazon

4.

A “drain millipede” that’ll dig up all the hair and gunk clogging your drains on the first go.


Amazon

Promising review: “I was amazed at what it pulled out! Gobs of hair from what was probably years ago, over and over again. I kept inserting it until just a little past when it stopped, and kept pulling out more and more gunk. When all was said and done, I had a clean, free-flowing drain. An easy five-star rating for me.” —Mr. Thomas J. Long

Price: $5.28


amazon.com

Promising review: “Simply UNBELIEVABLE. Fume-free and no gloves needed, but dissolves ANYTHING cooked on! Had not cleaned the oven EVER. Simply sprayed on, shut door over night, and wiped off with paper towels. Do not have to dread cleaning oven ever again!” —Andrew J.

Price: $5.99 (for a 24 oz can)

A trio of whimsical cactus hooks that are anything but dry.


Amazon

Promising review: “This is adorable and fit perfectly in the space I needed it for. I am actually using it as a place my kids can hang their towels in their bathroom. We have a little bit of an unintentional cactus theme going on in there, so this was absolutely perfect. It came with all the right hardware and was easy for me to put up by myself.” —Michelle Carriere

A pack of dishwasher cleaning tablets that’ll clean better than bleach.


Amazon

Promising review: “I bought Affresh, ran the dishwasher with two tablets while it was empty, and the difference was astounding. There was still some build up and I figured it would require another cycle, so I popped another two tablets in, ran the machine a second time, and now it looks and sounds brand new. No more film on the glasses, no more dirty dishes from clogged sprayers, no more odors, or build up around the door seals. I’m going to be buying Affresh from now on, and hopefully it will extend the life of my dishwasher.” —Martoune

Price: $3.71 (for six tablets)

A premium pair of aerators to give that cheap-o vino of yours one hell of a boost.


Amazon

Promising review: “These wine aerators are FABULOUS! I do wine demos for different wineries and I don’t always have time to let a bottle of wine breathe properly before a demo starts. They greatly enhance the flavor and it makes all the difference in the world. My sales numbers increased greatly. And you can’t beat the price!” —AshBash

Price: $13.99 (for a two-pack)

Amazon

11.

A carpet spot remover that is sort of beyond belief — so I’ll just let you admire these wild before-and-after shots.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I remember being completely dumbfounded by my pencil eraser as a kid. Where did the marks go? I looked in the air, I looked under my paper. What’s it made of? Does it have to be pink? This carpet cleaner caused the same dumbfounded confusion when ‘spray, rub, gone’ actually worked. I’ve obviously lost some of my childhood curiosity over the years, because I didn’t try to figure out how the carpet stain disappeared. Who cares? It’s gone! I practically skipped to the next room to try it out. The memory smudge of food, footprints, dog vomit. Gone. It even worked SOMEWHAT on the decade-old mystery stain left behind by the previous owners that professional carpet cleaning couldn’t remove. How does it work? I don’t care. What are the ingredients? Pixie dust and incantation. Where did all the stains go? Away.” —k

Price: $11.19 (for a 32-ounce bottle)

Amazon

12.

A storage system for stacking your pans if you’re tired of an avalanche every time you open up your cupboards.


Amazon

Promising review: “This rack is perfect. I put my largest skillet on the bottom and smallest at the top. I did not secure the rack with the screws that came with it so I can easily move it if I rearrange my pots and pans area. Even without securing it to the cabinet, it works perfectly and doesn’t shift when I remove a pan. I also appreciate the color: Others I have seen are shiny silver, which I did not want. I will be buying another one of these for our cabin. I have already recommended this rack to friends.” —CustomerO

Price: $14.97

A textured ombre shower curtain with rust-resistant rings so the only fading details are intentional.

A wavy ceramic planter perfect for any desk-plant enthusiast.


Amazon

Price: $9.99


amazon.com

Promising review: “Wow! I would give this 10 stars if I could. We’ve had issues for a few years with the caulking behind the handle of our kitchen faucet turning black from mildew. We’ve scrubbed with what seems like a million different products, with no luck. We were actually just talking about ripping out the caulking and doing a total replacement, but my husband saw this online the other day and decided to order it. Almost immediately when he applied it, you could see it was starting to work. We left it on overnight and the black is COMPLETELY GONE! It’s incredible. 1000% worth the (small) investment.” —Nicole D

A wooden phone dock for a classy upgrade to your desk setup at work.

Price: $9.99 (available in black walnut and white birch)

Amazon

17.

A pair of acacia wood salad utensils to serve some sophistication (as well as salad).


Amazon

Promising review: “These tongs have become my everyday tool in the kitchen. I have had them about a month now and they are holding up great. I turn everything that I pan cook (hamburgers, shrimp burgers, bacon, grilled cheese) with these. The are larger than others that I have purchased so get a better grip on the food.” —Terri S

Price: $12.94+ (available in four styles)

A “things to do around the house” pad because there are bound to be days when your list of chores feels unmanageable.

Price: $8.46

A mini bamboo brush and dustpan that’ll be anything but crummy.


Amazon

Promising review: “I hung this on my kitchen wall to brush crumbs and whatnot off of my counters. It is exactly what I was looking for in size, appearance, and function. Would 100% buy again.” —Amazon Customer

Price: $8.99 (available in green and white/gray)

Amazon

21.

A flexible shower caddy to hold all your shampoos and soaps and look dang good doing it.


Amazon

Promising review: This caddy is amazing. NO RUST! OMG. Can’t begin to articulate how nice that is. I was concerned a bar of soap wouldn’t work on this (all of the pictures showed liquid soap), but I was wrong. Fits just fine on the lower shelf, in any of the three spots that are available.” —H H

Price: $20 (available in gray, blue, and white)

Amazon

22.

A high-rise organizer for your medicine cabinet because figuring out how to stack on top of these narrow AF shelves can be a nightmare.


Amazon

Promising review: “My medicine cabinet looks so neat with these organizers! The quality of plastic is good; the compartment size is convenient. I bought a few different sizes and found use for all of them. Highly recommended.” —ZK

Price: $13.95 (available in four styles/sizes)

Amazon

23.

A reusable silicone bag that’s perfect for storing leftovers or toiletries and cooking directly in a sous vide.


Amazon

Promising review: “I’ve tried a LOT of reusable bags as there are a lot of options out there all using a variety of materials. The fabric ones just get gross over time. The vinyl ones are hard to clean and aren’t usually dishwasher-safe. There are other silicone ones that need a separate rod to close them that you can easily lose. This one is the most simple and easy to use. No separate pieces to lose. Can withstand any temperature/microwave/dishwasher/whatever. And if they get gunky they are very easy to clean and I trust that they aren’t hiding gross crumbs in any of the crevices. My only complaint is the cost — they are the most expensive and I wish they offered a bulk discount. If they were cheaper I would use them for EVERYTHING (open cheese in cheese drawer, all snacks on the go, etc).” —Megan A

Price: $11.99 (available in 13 colors)

Promising review: “The little rubber bumpers are a must! I really love them. Not only do they help tell straws apart but they protect your teeth and lips, and I feel comfortable letting a toddler drink from them as well.” —Jamie Lynn

Price: $6.99 (for an eight-pack with cleaning brush)

Amazon

25.

A natural wood desk lamp for some strong Pixar vibes.


Amazon

Promising review: “I don’t think it’s possible to be happier with an online purchase than I am with this desk lamp. This is a very high-quality product with an extremely heavy base for stability and real rubber wood for the arm. Even the fittings are made of cast iron. Assembly is easy, and the finished product is both an attractive piece of art AND a functional light source. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy it again, and I urge anyone on the fence to take the plunge. This is a very high-quality item.” —Malcolm Bedell

A house-shaped tissue box that’snot a joke.


Amazon

Promising review: “I first spotted this at a swanky modern hotel room with all-white decor. I love how it hides an unsightly branded tissue box — it practically vanishes! It looks so cute with the tissue-y ‘billow’ of smoke, and is functional too. Every modern minimalist’s dream.” —nycgirl

A sheet of stick-on sound dampeners so you don’t have to worry about waking up your roommates when you find yourself opening and closing cabinets for a midnight snack.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “These work very well to dampen the sounds of my idiot roommates slamming cabinet doors at all hours of the day. Just make sure you’re wiping down the part of the cabinet they’ll stick to before applying them. The adhesive is good and should hold for a while.” —LMA

A Spatty that helps you get the last drop out of your cosmetic, grocery, and personal care items.


amazon.com

Promising review: “You don’t know how many times I’ve wished I had a small spatula to get the small amount of liquid foundation in the bottle that just would NOT come out, no matter what. I tried turning the bottles upside down and tried scraping the makeup out with anything that I thought might help get the last little bit from the bottom of the bottle. I ordered two sets of these, one for my makeup drawer and another set to use in the kitchen. Thank you for this wonderful product! I love them!” —mtnluci

A hanging cotton canvas laundry bag you actually won’t mind keeping out.


Amazon

Promising review: “This hanging cotton canvas bag is a definite lifesaver for my bathroom floor. Instead of having to pick up laundry and collect it before going to the wash, we now can strip down before a shower and basketball-throw our clothing into the hamper. We have an older top-loading washer and this bag holds one full load of wash, which is great for saving space since we no longer need to keep a basket out for collection. This bag has been completely filled with jeans, and the metal frame and hook have not bent or warped from the weight, so it will hold up to heavy laundry.” —Z

A monitor stand and organizer with a special slot for your phone — to free up surface area on your desk and create a workspace that soothes, rather than triggers, your anxiety.


Amazon

Promising review: “I am a writer and do all of my writing on a laptop, as I do not have a desktop. After getting my Corsair keyboard, I decided I needed to raise the laptop up. My laptop is a decent size and it fits with no issue. Now I’m no longer straining my neck when I write and it clears up the desk a little.” —Evan Bond

Price: $16.99+ (available in four sizes)


amazon.com

Promising review: “Looks cool… but most importantly, it works. It’s absolutely windproof. And the charge it lets out is (or looks like) plasma…an awesome purplish zap. It’s easy to charge. This would be a great survival device — you could start a lot fires on one charge. The only thing I had to get used to was not having a flame. If you’re using this for cigarettes, you have to push the cigarette into the arch and move it around a little bit. After you get over that curve, it’s amazing.” —Ronald E. Mahler

Price: $17.99+ (available in six colors)

A stainless steel fish turner with slots that has me finally feeling confident in my seafood-prep abilities. (Not fishing for compliments here.)


Amazon

Promising review: “This is my go-to turner when I’m cooking for anything — not just fish. I’m pretty particular about turners, which sounds odd, but if they aren’t thin enough at the edge, it’s hard to get them under the food. Metal is important so it’s not floppy, and the length is great because it can hold larger pieces of food. Worth it.” —Mary Schumann

A terracotta bear friend you can toss in your brown sugar to keep your supply soft and tasting fresh.


amazon.com, amazon.com

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. And 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 mins and then added to my lumpy brown sugar. Two days later there is not a single lump in my sugar! Yay!” —Sneezeloaf

A four-part drawer organizer, because half the battle of getting out the door every morning is finding your other sock.


Amazon

Promising review: “I LOVE LOVE LOVE these organizers!! At just $13 for four organizers I took my chances and ordered two sets of four. I figured, worst-case scenario I would have to cut the dividers out of the bra organizers. I am guessing if you wear a 36 band size or above that the organizer may be too narrow to fit the bra. However I believe you could fold in the extra band and fit them in. I had no problem fitting DD cups into these. I wear a 32DD and the bras fit beautifully in the organizers. I ordered another set for tank tops and other extras I did not think of before. Great product for a great price!” —Elizabeth L Blackwell

A cord wrap for your perpetually knotted-up electronics.


Amazon

Promising review: “My sister-in-law is a busy mom with a bunch of kids and barely any time to get ready. So when I heard she was always misplacing her earbuds and that was eating into her gym time, I hopped onto Amazon and grabbed her the cutest earbud organizer I could find. She loves it, and it really helps because she can tuck it in her bag and even attach it to some of her workout bags.” —TheOrdinaryHiker

A multitool that might honestly serve more functions in life than I do?? (It’s a slotted spoon, solid spoon, spatula, turner, and a cutting tool!) I need a moment to process.


Amazon

Promising review: “Give it a cap and a costume, this is the only thing I need in the kitchen! I am often looking for tools that can replace the other 30 I have collected in my kitchen. I have used this to flip grilled cheese, stir red beans and rice, strain Brussels sprouts, and taste sauce. I use the flat edge to cut onions that were too large once in the pot and scrape the bottom of the pan. The uni-tool feels nice in my hand, has held up fine in multiple dishwashings, and has allowed me to toss a few kitchen tools that have become obsolete.” —Hiawhatha

A set of vintage-style botanical prints you can frame for a super-affordable and stylish addition to your drab walls.


Amazon

An adjustable reading clip, the cheaper and just-bright-enough alternative to a floor lamp.


Amazon

Promising review: “This lamp is absolutely perfect. I get up early in the morning for my Bible study and this lamp gives off the perfect amount of light so I can see and not wake my husband. It also has a strong clip so my cat can’t pull it down. I am thrilled with it.” —Terra

A foldable cutting board so you can dump your sliced veggies right into your pot when you’ve finished.

A pack of adhesive light sensors you can attach to your bed (or inside your drawers, if you have a storage frame) for better visibility in the middle of the night.


Amazon

Promising review: “I purchased these lights as a gift for my husband. We’ve been to a couple of nice hotels that would have motion-sensor lights under their beds that were nice when having to wake up in the middle of the night to use the restroom. The lights were incredibly easy to use, just put the AAA batteries (not included) in and voila! I placed them on a middle post under our bed and the adhesive backing seems to be holding up. Now anytime it’s dark, because they won’t turn on with the lights on, we can move around our room without having to turn any lights on and are able to see just fine. The lights also only stay on for about 10-15 seconds, which is perfect for us.” —H. Michelle

A set of magnetic spice jar dispensers, so you’ll never have to ask where the salt went ever again. (Might I suggest checking the side of your fridge?)


Amazon

Promising review: “Finally!!! We searched for a long time for spice jars that would hold a nice amount of spices. These are perfect! With a pour or sprinkle option, window to see the spice level, strong magnet, and space-saving square shape! We planned to just put our ‘popular’ spices in them but we love them so much we are buying another set so we can have all our spices organized!!” —JT

A grill scrubber to remove stubborn grease and grime without breaking a sweat.


Amazon

Promising review: “My grill accumulated a lot of crud as a result of many cookouts. I tried to keep it as clean as possible with a wire brush and various cleaning pads and cleaners. I never could get the rack and grates to look like new. There was always a layer of permanent food residue, carbon, and other debris that defied removal. I decided to give the Magic Stone Grill Cleaner a shot. Surprise! Surprise! This is truly a magic stone. It removed everything from the grill parts that I worked on and left them looking like new. The cleaning process did put grooves in the bottom of the stone and that helped to get the sides cleaned off as well.” —Duffer

I was surprised with the quality and expected it to not quite match the picture (glass-half-empty type, I guess) but they really are adorable and look nice.” —Jamie L. Landuyt

Price: $6.88+ (available in nickel and bronze)

A bedside caddy to hold your reading materials and prevent piles from accumulating.


Amazon

Promising review: “I love this caddy — it fits snugly between the mattresses and has never fallen out. I put my Kindle and iPod with ear buds in here, so I can easily find them without knocking things over on the bedside table. It’s sturdy, and seems to be lasting well in the six months or so that I have used it — still looks like the day I got it. Great purchase!” —K.B.

An avocado slicer for anyone who is always coming dangerously close to chopping off their fingers while prepping avocados.


Amazon

Promising review: “Avocado? Yes, Please! This tool is awesome. Easy to cut open the fruit. Pit remover works well, just push onto the pit and give it a twist, and the pit pops right out. The best part is the slicer. Makes beautiful slices for a great presentation. The tool can then be used to scrape any remaining fruit out of the skin. Really happy I bought this tool!” —NPR MAN

A pack of bed-sheet suspenders (grippers that keep your linens from slipping off the mattress) that’d leave Larry King utterly shook.


Amazon

Promising review: “Amazing product. I am an architect. I hate a messed-up bed. I couldn’t find thinner fitted sheets. I bought these clips. Did I say amazing? I often have shown my own home to potential clients in order to show them some of my work. The beds had to be neat when I did. I bought these clips with a lot of doubts. I CAN’T SAY HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO READ THE REVIEW FROM THE PERSON WHO DESCRIBES THE BEST WAY TO PUT ON THE CLIPS. (By flipping the fitted corners of the sheet up onto the top of the bed surface, applying the clips there, and THEN pulling everything back under the mattress. As opposed to all of the other reviewers who complain about how difficult it is to fasten the clips on while lifting up the corner of the mattress!) Once the clips are on, flip the fitted corner back down over the mattress and look at the great result. All of the excess fabric vanishes completely. I was expecting some kind of big pucker even while the sheets stayed in place, but there was nothing but tight, smooth fabric.” —Steven P. Gray

And a sworn-by Magic Eraser, if the mere thought of cleanup always holds you back from meal-prepping.


Amazon

Promising review: “Basically the best cleaning tool ever. Walls, counters, sinks, toys, you name it, I’ve used a Magic Eraser on it. We have a light-color sink basin in the kitchen and I use these once a week to keep it sparkling white. I used to have to use heavy-duty cleaner but just a quick wipe down with the Magic Eraser and it’s good as new!” —seven4eleven

Price: $4.94 (for a four-pack)
