You know those people who have massive kitchens with seemingly unlimited cabinet space? The ones whose kitchens look like they came right out of a “Southern Living” magazine. Yeah, that’s not me, but I wish it were me sometimes. (O.K., often.) Why? Because I’m enamored with kitchen gadgets. Air fryers and vacuum sealers and sous vide attachments … oh my! To be honest, if I buy very many more kitchen products from Amazon, I’m going to have to get a bigger place.
That doesn’t stop me from window shopping, though, and it shouldn’t stop you either. (I’m also 100 percent an enabler … you’re welcome.) Just this list alone has some killer options: A versatile pizza stone? Why not. Baby Yoda-themed storage? That’s a no-brainer. Even better, these products have proved their mettle with a laundry list (grocery list would be more appropriate) of glowing reviews from real users like you.
We hope you find these products as awesome as we do. Just an FYI: We are a participant in the Amazon affiliate program, and Brainjolt may receive a share of sales from links on this page. Prices on Amazon fluctuate so anything mentioned below might change as soon we publish it!
Mini Skillet, Big Flavor
I’ve moved almost exclusively to cooking with cast iron over the past year and I’m never turning back. It lasts forever (with a little care) and food cooks like a dream in it. This mini-skillet from the cast iron experts at Lodge is the perfect size for cooking eggs, serving dip sauces, or making personal-sized desserts. The skillet comes pre-seasoned and ready to use out of the box.
Be Your Own Barista With This Frother
Who needs Starbucks when you can create your own coffeehouse drinks for a fraction of the price at home? This milk frother will help you get the right amount of foam for your cappuccinos, lattes, and more. One reviewer called it a “frothing miracle”: “Making my coffee is one thing, but to have frother make the foam I love while at home is amazing. … My coffee is better because of this one device.”
This Simple, Single-Cup Keurig Fits Right On Your Desk
I’m a fiend when it comes to coffee. While I have a dedicated espresso machine, sometimes I get so wrapped up in my work that I don’t have the time (or rather, desire) to make that effort. That’s why the K-mini is so handy. Its slim profile means I can keep it on my desk without taking up too much space and then just pop in a K-cup when I need a fix.
Seal Up Opened Bags With This Mini Bag Sealer
If you’re practicing self-control or can’t finish a bag in one sitting, then you know how easily chips and other foods get stale if not closed correctly. These bag sealers use heat to reseal the bag to keep food fresher longer. Now you won’t have to worry about wasting food when you have a small handful of chips to curb your cravings.
You Can Use This Opener
Are you still using an old-school can opener that sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t? Why? This electric can opener will tackle your canned goods with a simple push of a button. It’ll cut your cans 360 degrees along the lid without food spilling or sharp edges. Grab it in one of four colors. It’s also a great tool for people with arthritic hands or those who have grip issues.
Slice Your Way To Salad Easily
Sometimes nothing hits the spot like a good, clean salad. The problem is, bagged salads at the store are sparse (and sometimes slimy), and preparing your own involves a lot of slicing, chopping, and dicing. This salad cutter streamlines the salad-making process. Throw your ingredients in the bowl, snap on the base, and slice and dice your way to fresh salad using the grooves in the bowl.
This YouCopia Lid Organizer Brings Order to Food Container Chaos
In my house, we call it the “Tupperware drawer.” It’s a nightmare of a drawer filled with a hodgepodge of food storage containers and lids that never seem tidy, no matter how often I sort and stack the containers. I’m hoping this YouCopia Lid Organizer will help! It’s designed to sit inside a cabinet or drawer and hold lids upright, with five adjustable dividers so you can customize the spaces. It fits lids up to 9 inches wide.
Triple The Lifespan Of Your Herbs
A couple of months ago, I started a herb garden in my house. I was tired of going to the store and finding substandard herbs or no herbs at all. Now, I have herbs for days. Keeping them fresh long enough to use them all is my bigger issue now. This herb saver is genius, allowing you to save your herbs with a bit of water added daily. The shape is ideal for storing in your refrigerator door.
Give Your Utensils Some Place To Rest
A spoon rest is a must if you do very much cooking. The issue comes in when you have more than one utensil that you need out of your way. With a regular spoon rest, there’s really only room for one utensil. With this silicone utensil rest, you have room for both the spoon you’re using to stir the spaghetti sauce and the strainer that’s handling noodle duty. It’s available in two shades of gray, red, and turquoise.
These Spoons Measure Up
Here’s the thing about traditional measuring spoons on a ring: You either have to take them apart to use just one or clean them all after every use. These nesting measuring spoons eliminate that headache. The magnetic design eliminates the aggravating ring scenario and also streamlines clutter in your kitchen cabinets. This six-piece set includes measurements from 1/8 tsp. to 1 tablespoon.
Turn Any Veggie Into Noodles With This Spiralizer
I quit pasta some years ago, and, except for an occasional craving, I’ve managed to stay aboard the no-pasta train. One of the things that helps me the most is a veggie spiralizer like this one, which turns anything from zucchini to carrots into spiralized ribbons you can use as a pasta replacement or in any other dish. This space-saving gadget has four included blade options.
An Amazon-Exclusive Knife Set
Offered exclusively on Amazon, this colorful knife set from Cuisinart is a fan favorite with nearly 13,000 positive reviews. The set includes six knives: A chef’s knife, slicing knife, serrated bread knife, santoku knife, utility knife, and paring knife, and covers for each. The nonstick coating keeps things from sticking and offers a pop of color for your kitchen.
These FreshWorks Produce Containers Keep Fruits and Veggies Fresher, Longer
On my journey to healthier eating, these FreshWorks Produce Containers have been a huge help. Every week, I shop for tons of fruits and veggies, wash and chop them, then store them in these containers. They’re designed with a filtered vent (the filter never needs to be changed, whew) that regulates the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide, which keeps food fresher a heck of a log longer. Plus, they look great in my fridge and encourage the entire family to make healthier choices!
No More Wine Headaches With These Wands
Is it wine o’clock yet? Few of us can pass up a good glass of vino, but most of us deal with the repercussions the next day. The wand wine purifier works to eliminate those post-wine headaches and upset stomachs. One wand in one glass removes the histamines and sulfites that cause hangovers without changing the taste of your beverage. One purchase includes three wands, so you might want to grab a few.
Flexible Ice Molds Have So Many Uses
I know what you’re thinking: “Hey, these are just ice cube trays.” Well, yes and no. They are indeed ice cube trays, but the uses here are endless, thanks to the silicone bottom that allows you to pop one out at a time. You can use these to save coffee, freeze herbs or store homemade baby food. When it’s time to clean them, simply pop them in the dishwasher.
This Kitchen Tool Is Grate
A grater/zester is one of those kitchen gadgets you don’t realize you need until you’ve already bought it. (The trick is to just buy it and figure it out later.) It has unlimited versatility, from grating cheese or ginger to zesting lemon or nutmeg. The design — long and thin — doesn’t take up much space in a drawer, so you can throw away that clunky box grater you inherited from your mom.
Make Space For Coffee
Many of today’s at-home coffee makers take cups or pods, which — uh, oh — take up a ton of extra space. Don’t store those coffee pods in a kitchen cabinet or pantry; get this storage drawer holder that sits neatly under your coffee machine. The tempered glass design is chic, and the pull-out drawer allows for easy access to coffee capsules, even when you barely have one eye open.
How much money have you spent on store-bought sprayers of olive oil? Probably more than you realize. Did you also know those cans are full of chemicals and aren’t just the oil they advertise themselves to be? WIth Misto, you control what’s in your oil spray. With just a few pumps to pressurize your bottle, you can have the convenience of a spray without the added junk.
Don’t Blow This Deal
If you’ve never thought about adding a blow torch to your kitchen, you must not watch a lot of televised cooking shows. Every time they pull one out to caramelize the top of something or add just a bit more color, I think, “Hey, I need one of those!” This blow torch is available for right around $15 and adds a new dimension to your cooking whether you’re into sous vide, flambe, or craft cocktails.
This Scale Measures Up
I swear you’ll find more uses for a kitchen scale than you realize before you purchase one. This one weighs up to 11 pounds, so it perfect for every recipe, measuring fruits, vegetables, or meats for precision cooking. Don’t tell on me, but I also use my kitchen scale to weigh packages I have to mail so I can affix the proper amount of postage. See? Multipurpose machine!
Toast To This Oven
Toaster ovens are back again in a big way. This option from Black+Decker is designed to perfectly toast four pieces of bread, but that’s not all. It also has plenty of room to cook a small pizza, and also handles baking, broiling, and keeping food warm. A removable crumb tray makes keeping things clean a breeze, and its small footprint won’t take up a ton of space on your counter.
Stand Up To Fatigue With These Kitchen Mats
Facts are facts: We spend a lot of time standing around in the kitchen. (Unless, of course, your kitchen is big enough that it has a sofa.) These anti-fatigue floor mats offer a padded surface upon which you can stand, which can relieve tired muscles and feet. They’re not only appropriate for the kitchen, though. Grab one for the bathroom, laundry, or anywhere else you find yourself spending a lot of time.
Tote Reusable Bags To The Store
Reusable bags aren’t just great for the environment, but they make it easier to transport your grocery finds from the store to your house. This set of six holds up to 50 pounds of groceries and replaces two to three conventional plastic shopping bags. When not in use, they fold down out of the way and fit in the included pouches that you can toss in your purse or trunk.
A Homemade Pizza Helper
It’s not delivery, it’s … you’ve heard the commercial before. Takeout pizza is easy, but homemade pizza (and not that cardboard stuff from the store) is a special way to go. This ceramic pizza stone preheats twice as fast as other pizza stones on the market and bakes quicker, resulting in a crispier crust. The non-stick glaze on the stone prevents food, like ooey-gooey cheese, from sticking to the surface.
Serve In Style With This Acacia Bowl
Sure, you could plop down a salad in that discolored storage container you found in the back of a kitchen cabinet, but why would you if you could serve in this stylish acacia bowl? Created with a wave design, this bowl is great for dishing up fruit, salad, or side dishes and makes a chic addition to any table. Pick up a couple so that everything coordinates and look like you’ve got this adulting thing down pat.
Buy This Baby Yoda Storage, You Will
Baby Yoda fan? Who isn’t these days, am I right? Now you can add Baby Yoda and a touch of whimsy to your kitchen with these themed Pyrex storage containers. This eight-piece set includes two bowls with lids and two square storage containers with lids, adorned with an adorable Disney theme around the sides. Just don’t loan these out, OK? You’ll never get them back.
Darling Dry Food Dispensers
If you’ve ever eaten a continental breakfast at a hotel, you’re probably familiar with dry food dispensers like this duo from Amazon. Now you can bring the fun home with this dual dispenser in black and chrome. Too early to fix breakfast for the littles? No problem because now they can get their own cereal with ease. Besides being functional, these are a super-cute addition to any kitchen.
This Caddy Corrals Your Cleaning Tools
Washing dishes is a fact of life; yes, even if you own a dishwasher. That means you need a scrub brush or sponges … or both. But, where to store them? This two-in-one kitchen sink caddy gives these cleaning tools their own space, which keeps them out of your way while they dry in a sanitary kind of way. The design of this caddy won’t take up a ton of room, either.
Serve Ice Cream With This Old-Timey Scoop
There are lots of ice cream scoops on the market. Scoops that warm before you use them scoops that are ergonomically designed, but none is as clever as this old-timey stainless steel scoop from Thrifty. Scoop perfect cylinders of this creamy treat with a trigger for no-mess dispensing. One reviewer said: “I love the concept, just push, turn, lift and dispense.”
Meat Your New Thermometer
If you’re like me, you probably have one thermometer for meat and another for baking and candy making. Or, maybe I’m just a weirdo with too many kitchen gadgets. This digital cooking thermometer is designed to do the work of multiple thermometers by accurately checking meat temperatures, bread, chocolate, yogurt, and more.
Store Your Spice, Girl
You can’t cook without spices (well, you could, but no one would want to eat it). Now, put your spices center stage with this revolving spice tower that sits right on your kitchen counter. With room for 20 jars, you’ll have all of the spices you use the most right at your fingertips. The included glass jars have sifter tops for controlled dispensing. The best news is this rack comes with five years of free spice refills. Score!
Rub Away Stinky Odors
Recipes are just better with onions and garlic … prove me wrong. The issue is the odors they leave behind, especially on your hands. I always used to rub my hands inside my stainless steel sink until someone thought to turn that idea into a “bar of soap.” Except, this Rub-A-Way bar never wears down because it’s stainless steel in the shape of a bar of soap and eliminates stinky odors from your hands with just a few swipes.
Be A Better Board Chef
Here’s the thing: you need to buy this clever charcuterie board set and cheese serving platter. This set of acacia wood includes four bowls and four knives to hold and slice all kinds of cheese types and charcuterie. With a wide 13-inch diameter, you’ll have plenty of room for all the snacks, whether you’re eating solo or hosting others.
The Juice Is Worth The Squeeze
File this purchase under, “I Can’t Believe I Bought It, But I’m So Glad I Did.” I find this handheld juicer coming in handy for all types of cooking, including adding lime to Taco Tuesday or lemon to various fish and seafood dishes. You’ll squeeze every last drop of juice from even the most contrary citrus with this heavy, quality juicer. It’s even dishwasher-safe.
Don’t Get Mixed Up
Countertop mixers take up a lot of space, but handheld mixers have attachments that always seem to get lost. I’ve never seen a smarter design in a handheld mixer than this one from Hamilton Beach. A snap-on storage case keeps all of your attachments within reach (read: not hanging out in the back of a cabinet where you can’t see them). It’s available in red or white.
Take Lunch To Go In Style
Lunch storage has sure come a long way from the plastic baggies and metal lunchboxes of my youth. This stackable bento-style lunchbox container gives you plenty of space to transport your dish, with divided storage compartments to keep your sides from mixing into one weirdly flavored mess. The nylon sealing strap keeps everything together, and utensils are even included.
Can You Get Organized? Yes, You Can
One of my biggest complaints about a pantry is the inability to see all of your canned goods easily since everything is stacked on top of each other with other cans in front. This simple stackable can rack organizer offers an easy solution that allows you to see what you have and easily grab it and keep on track with your recipe. Plastic dividers can be modified for different sizes of cans.
