the kitchen rack with five wooden shelves


Amazon

Promising review: “I love my kitchen appliances, to a detriment. This stand saved the day. Now my rice cooker, slow cooker, and stand mixer never have to be moved to be used. The tray is the perfect height for holding my teas and under that, I have an electric kettle and burr grinder. Assembly took one person and about 30 minutes. The picture instructions are easy to follow and include both a wall-tether (to prevent it from tipping over if a child climbed it) and spare parts!” —CarolinaTechFoodie

Promising review: “Easy-to-use foot pedal. Doesn’t hit the wall and can be pushed all the way against the wall.

Highly recommend.” —Amber

A cutlery organizer designed to declutter your utensils, even if you’re working with small drawers. It’s heavy duty, and reviewers say it fits a set for 12!


amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “Fits my drawer like a glove AND holds my set for 12! Heavy gauge plastic construction that does not give even when fully loaded. This has opened up so much more space in my drawer making it easier to find other serving pieces and the odd items in that drawer. Love it, highly recommend it. Before purchasing, measure your drawers to make sure it will fit. I love that it can lie parallel to the drawer front. I was concerned that my flatware would stick out too tall for my stock cabinetry drawer, but that is not a problem.” —Kindle Customer

Promising review: “Hands-down this is the best blender on the market. It has multiple tools which enables you to do many tasks in the kitchen.

Promising review: “OMG! This is the most AMAZING product! We inherited some antique furniture from the ’30s that had been in storage forever… it was dry and dirty and not much to look at. I used this product on it and the oak wood literally came alive showing the beautiful grain and texture of the wood. I have since used it on my oak kitchen cabinets and they look AMAZING!

Promising review: “Makes cleaning so easy! It was actually a lot bigger than I had figured so that was a great surprise. I added white vinegar and water and put it in for eight minutes. I didn’t let anything cool off, I just wiped everything down. It made what would normally be a 15-minute scrub job into a two-minute wipe off job.” —Michelle Tenney

An OXO Good Grips V-Blade mandoline slicer so you can set the exact thickness for tomato slices or whip up a batch of homemade potato chips all in one compact device.


Amazon, Wayfair

Promising review: “Vegans have lots of slicing needs. I can’t tell you how many hours of my life I’ve wasted using a knife when I could have been using this! You get five pre-set options, and it’s also really safe, from the chunky rubbery handle to the very huge handguard (which, due to its awesome design, will take an onion right down to the thinnest bit of base plate!). AND you can just rinse the whole thing under the faucet, no need to take it apart and scrub it, everything just glides right off with water, stick it in the dish rack, and you’re done. It’s easy to change the few parts it has without slicing yourself to bits, and it’s nearly impossible to make a mistake that would harm you. The rubber feet keep it from going anywhere. You can slice right over a pot or bowl if you want and it is easy to hold in place with one hand. Awesome product, so happy.” –Ben There Donethat

Get it from Amazon for $39.95.

Promising review: “These sponges are the best scrub sponges for any category — regular or eco-friendly. They are very absorbent and the scrub side is excellent at getting to hard, crusted-on food. They are very sturdy and durable. I like them so much I don’t want to throw away. Every week they get put in the dishwasher and come out smelling and looking as good as the first time I used them.

Promising review: “This is the perfect addition to my new kitchen to get my many teas off the counter and out of sight, yet easily accessible.

Promising review: “This is a great use for wasted space in the front of your sink. It gives you an added space for sponges and even a safe place to keep jewelry while washing dishes. The pull down feature is very easy to use. It would also be a great place to hide valuables. Very unsuspecting.” —Katie Gick

Amazon

Promising review: “I needed a spoon rest, but couldn’t find one that looked like something that would fit my kitchen. Then I saw this one. It doesn’t really fit my kitchen either, but how could I not buy this cool spoon rest? Whenever someone first sees it on my stove, they think it’s real ravioli, haha. Oh yeah, it’s also functional. It gives utensils a nice rest, and it hasn’t burned nor melted.” —Kesa

A small reusable bag ideal for storing leftovers, food prep, and future meals. They are even dishwasher-safe for easy-breezy cleanup!

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 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. 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.” —Megan A.

A set of colorful Tasty cookware made of nonstick ceramic you’ll wish you discovered ages ago. Ceramic gets nice and hot as you cook, and cleans up easily afterward!

the colorful Tasty cookware set with frying pans, pots, saucepans, utensils, and small bowls


Walmart

This set includes an 8-inch fry pan, 9.5-inch fry pan, 1.5-quart saucepan with glass lid, 2.5-quart saucepan with glass lid, 3-quart sauté pan with glass lid, 6- quart stockpot with glass lid, a slotted turner, a serving spoon with measuring marks, three ceramic bowls, and a recipe booklet.

Promising review: “This is my first set of ceramic cookware, and I LOVE it! The nonstick ceramic on these pots and pans is nothing short of amazing. I can fry sausage and bacon in the pan, let the leftover grease set on, and even cool in the pans, and it still comes completely off by just using the sink sprayer. Same for mac and cheese that has cooled and sat in the sink overnight in a pot. Just sprays right off. All of the insides are white, so it’s very easy to tell the cleanliness of them. The pans cook evenly all over, but definitely much hotter than a regular pan. The first time I made burgers, I burnt them but got it right the second time around. They are dishwasher safe, but I never use the dishwasher for pots and pans, as it usually breaks them down faster. I always just handwash, but that’s just my preference.” —lexkyguy

The white filter


Amazon

You can install this filtration system without any tools, and it will reduce 99% of any water contaminants such as chlorine, lead, and asbestos. Not to mention it will eliminate the need for single-use water bottles!

Promising review: “Very easy to install — far less complicated than the Pur filter we had previously. Because it screws directly onto the faucet, the mount is sturdy. It’s a more compact design and provides the option for the unfiltered water to be a spray in addition to a smooth flow. Water tastes great — removes the slightly ‘off’ taste that our public water contains.” —S. LaCour

Promising review: “Love this new garden! It’s my fourth AeroGarden and they just keep getting better. This one has a very sleek design and takes up less space than I thought it would without sacrificing grow space or water capacity. Set up was a breeze with the display walking me through the steps. I love that on their larger gardens you can set the time on the garden, plus this one is wifi enabled so I can keep track of my garden’s needs on my phone! My favorite new feature though is vacation mode, which will slow down the light and water use so I don’t have to worry about my plants so much when I’m out of town. I can’t wait for my plants to grow. I recommend it!!” —Ted
