An electric egg cooker so simple you’ll feel like it cooked your breakfast for you. It can make hard-boiled eggs, soft-boiled eggs, poached eggs, scrambled eggs, and even individual omelets.
A stainless-steel bar if you’re tired of your hands smelling like the stuff that ultimately winds up in the garbage disposal when you’re done washing the dishes.
A multipurpose bag holder you can use to store a bunch of different things in the kitchen. As someone who cooks multiple times a day, I’d personally use this to hold small trash bags that I can throw things like egg shells, vegetable stems and potato skins into until I’m done preparing my meal — that way I don’t have to keep walking back and forth to the garbage can the whole time.
A silicone whisk that’s not only strong enough to mix things like eggs and batter, but can also break down ground meat as well.
Or a manual food chopper, which is also excellent at breaking down ground meat. You can even use it to mash the heck out of some potatoes or to slice up hard boiled eggs.
A tea bag organizer that’ll make your cabinet feel a lot more aesthetically pleasing and far less cluttered.
A microwave pasta cooker for folks who are culinarily challenged and have given up on traditionally cooking pasta altogether.
Or a spill stopper if you insist on boiling water to make your pasta but have a bad habit of walking away from the stove while it’s on.
A 5-in-1 unitool that works as a slotted spoon, a solid spoon, a spatula, a turner, and a cutting tool. It’s basically a Swiss army knife, except…ya know…it’s not a knife.
A silicone spoon spatula (yes, spoonulas exist) that allows you to stir, scrape, and serve with ease.
A Lodge cast-iron skillet pre-seasoned with 100% vegetable oil, so you don’t have to worry about synthetic coatings or chemicals getting into your food. It can go straight from the stovetop into the oven, making it a pretty versatile piece of cookware.
A stain-restistant Japanese steel chef’s knife, which makes slicing and dicing a whole lot easier thanks to its ergonomic handle and anti-slip grip.
A clip-on strainer that’ll take your colander game to the next level while freeing up one of your hands to wave goodbye to that steaming hot water flowing down the drain.
A silicone trivet — don’t worry if you have no idea what that is (I had to use Google to find out it’s basically a coaster for cookware) — because it also doubles as a potholder and a jar opener.
Or some actual potholders, like these Grace Jones and Black Lives Matter ones, if you’d like to support a Black-owned small business.
DIY cocktail (or mocktail!) kits if you’re still inside and sorely miss the days of a professional bartender taking care of all your boozy (or virgin!) wants and needs.
A handheld veggie slicer so you can stop wasting money on prepackaged zoodles at the grocery store. It’s also more compact than a spiralizer, so it’s better for people with limited storage space in the kitchen.
A pack of dishcloths that stay odor-free without washing or microwaving, and are safe to use on non-stick cookware — making them about a million times better than sponges.
A Golden Girls dishwasher magnet you can use to let everyone in your home know whether the load in the machine is clean or dirty. It’ll make living with roommates (older or younger) a whole lot easier.
A nonstick baking mat that comes with helpful measurements for prepping and can also withstand up to 480 degrees for baking.
A wall-mounted grocery bag dispenser for those of us who’ve participated in the longstanding family tradition of having one designated plastic bag to hold all other plastic bags.
A super straightforward waffle maker that’d allow you to make a five-star breakfast with minimal hassle. You’d actually have to try very hard to NOT make a perfect waffle in this thing.
A manual food chopper – it can handle anything from large fruits and veggies to boneless meats. It also gives you full control over consistency whether you prefer big chunks or finely diced slices — it just depends on how many times you pull the lever.
Storage bin decals, because no BuzzFeed list would be complete without some good ol’ organizational content. This one goes out to everyone who has a label of some sort on damn near everything in their fridge.
