Promising review: “Ingenious! What a great idea to have one adjustable measuring tool. It comes apart into two parts when you need it to for cleaning inside. Measurement marks are notched in, not painted on, so no worry of fading.” —Lee

Price: $5.99

Promising review: “If you are like me, the digital age has hit you hard. You end up having to use your smartphone to look up nearly everything. But one thing that always twists my whiskers, is getting flour and sticky stuff all over my phone whilst trying to cook in the kitchen. I then have to worry about damaging my phone, and also cleaning it after cooking or during cooking to renew visibility. That's where this handy little hands-free item comes in. It's a little bigger than my hand and I can slap it anywhere with a metal surface. I put it on the fridge, so it's a few steps from the stove and kitchen island.

Very convenient and easy to read, has a bunch of different conversions for everyday cooking needs. I also noticed some of the other items like this on Amazon are much bigger, like the size of a piece of paper, which for me takes up too much space in my kitchen and isn't very appealing to look at. This smaller chart looks nice but isn't too noticeable and doesn't take away from the overall look of my kitchen. Love it!” —Teddy Bear

Price: $6.29

Promising review: “What did I do before this tool? Major cooking hack!!!! Love, love, love this tool. Preparing herbs became so much easier!” —Amazon Customer

Price: $5.99+ (available individually or in a two-pack)

Promising review: “Great little scale! I ordered this because it’s the same scale my son had when he lived with us, so I knew what I was getting. It’s so easy to use – just put a plate or bowl on it, hit ‘tare,’ then start adding fruit, meat, pasta, whatever you need to measure. I can buy powdered sugar in bags now because I can weigh out the 1-pound the frosting recipe calls for. No guessing! It weighs in standard or metric measures. You just press the button repeatedly until you see the units that you need. It’s great for My Fitness Pal, which often gives serving sizes in grams. Batteries are easy to change, too, though they last a long time since it turns itself off after a short time of inactivity. I use it all the time!” —okieteach

Price: $9.84+ (available in 12 colors)

Promising review: “Most-used tool in my kitchen! This olive oil dispenser has completely transformed my cooking experience. Not only is it a convenient way to store and dispense olive oil, but it also makes me feel like a pro every time I use it. The sleek design and easy-to-use functionality gives it a professional-grade feel, and I find myself channeling my inner Gordon Ramsay as I add the perfect amount of oil to my dishes.

Moreover, the dispenser's precision spout allows for accurate pouring and minimal mess, making it a must-have for any home cook. It has become a staple in my kitchen, and I cannot imagine cooking without it. Overall, I highly recommend this product to anyone who loves to cook and wants to take their kitchen game to the next level.” —IamNazarene

Price: $9.99 (available in three colors)

Promising review: "I love this tool for the kitchen. I use it for everything when it comes to cooking at home. It can handle just about anything that you have to do while trying to make dinner in a busy house with kids around. I didn't think that it was going to be able to handle my busy household but it fit right in. It is easy to use, very sturdy, and heat-resistant. I can cut chicken in the pan while cooking. I was very impressed and I am very satisfied with it.” —Carla M. Perez

Price: $9.99

Promising review: “Love, love, love! In the fall of 2020, I made macarons every Friday. So, I needed to separate four eggs per week. Using this device has made that process much easier. Simply place an egg in the device, swirl it around a little, and ta-da! The only time I have ever had a broken yolk while using this device is if the yolk broke when I cracked the egg before I put it in the device. Reliable, easy, and worth every cent.” —Marielle Durrett

Price: $7.39

Promising review: “This magnetic sheet is easy to use and attached right to the air fryer, and it also has adhesive strips in case your air fryer housing is plastic like mine. They worked well. So much easier to use than trying to guess what time and temperature to use. Takes the guesswork out of it. I have followed it and my food comes out perfect. Very glad I bought it.” —John O.

Price: $9.99+ (available in two colors)

Promising review: “This is simply the best! Not real hot. Great flavor. Goes on everything from chicken to a bagel and cream cheese. We got a bottle for Christmas and immediately ordered three more.” —S. Goodsell

Price: $8.99

Promising review: “Delicious! We originally purchased the Original Flavor at Sam's Club and loved it so much, but when we went back to buy again, they didn't have it. So we decided to try the other flavors and we are hooked on all three of them. We use them on everything. Love the Hot & Spicy — it's a perfect blend without being too hot. All flavors are good on chicken, salmon and beef — also on vegetables. You will not be disappointed.” —Dana Melbuer

Price: $6.99+ (available in five flavors and individually or in multi-packs)

Y’all, I went my entire life having never experienced the glory that is Old Bay until I found myself somewhat unexpectedly living in the DC area (proximity to Maryland is key), and, well… you can now consider me an Old Bay convert. I will straight-up vacuum down anything that has Old Bay in, on, or near it. A little tangy; a little spicy… it’s basically the perfect spice combination.

Promising review: “Makes recipes even better! We use Old Bay in lots of dishes and without it, the recipes do not taste right. There are lots of things you can leave out of some recipes and it still tastes good, but for some reason when Old Bay is missing, it is not good.

Old Bay is one of those unique seasonings that makes a dish taste right. Fish, shrimp, scallops, chicken, Cajun dishes, and much, much more. If you use Old Bay, you know what I mean. There is only one Old Bay, and that is the original. Nothing can replace it. If you have never used Old Bay, try it out, you will use it always.” —Repro63

Price: $2.99+ (available in five sizes and individually or in multi-packs)

Promising review: “Has changed my life in the kitchen! I'd give this 10 stars if allowed. My spices were a nightmare. Once I got this... dear lord, so amazing! Easy to use and everything is within reach and can see it, for the most part. Sometimes you have to slide something over, but whew, what a great product!” —Ellen

Price: $7.99+ (available in two sizes, nine colors, and individually or as a two-pack)

Promising review: “Better than a traditional spoon rest! It's such a small thing, but I love this spoon holder! I keep one (or sometimes both of them) next to my stovetop. Used to use a flat silicone mat, but this is better — easy to rest four utensils (stirring spoon, spatula, tasting spoon, etc.) near the cooking area, and the small lip around the edge keeps any juices/liquids contained. Works great, I use this every day. Easy to clean, as well.” —Peggy

Price: $7.99+ for a set of two (available in five colors)

Promising review: “Unbelievably perfect rolling pin! I've always used rolling pins with handles and thought I'd give this one a try. I love it. I have much better control and it's so easy to clean. Easier to keep the dough the same thickness when cutting out biscuits. Best purchase I've made in a while.” —Evelyn T.

Price: $7.64+ (available in two wood species)

Promising review: “Makes you feel like a real chef! This is probably one of my most unnecessary-but-necessary purchases, and I’m so glad I made it after dropping and spilling so many things on the counter after chopping while trying to transfer to another surface. It does what it’s supposed to do, it’s sturdy, the top is grippy, and you can feel like a real chef who knows what they’re doing in the kitchen.

The agave blue is a deep turquoise/green-blue color and matches the other agave blue items in the Rachael Ray collections.” —Caitlin

Price: $9.99+ (available in five colors)

Promising review: “Buy this, don’t hesitate! I love fresh garlic, but I hated peeling it, to the point where I'd just buy squeezable garlic... I know, awful. This cheap little tool has made me find new love for fresh garlic again and took all the headache out of the process. Worth every penny.” —Hunter Tramell

Price: $4.99+ (available in individually and in multi-packs and in multiple color combinations)

Promising review: “Super quality juicer! I was used to manually juicing lemons, limes, etc. but this is the cat's meow! High quality and it gets all of the juice out. Cleans easily in dishwasher.” —Dadof3

Price: $8.99+ (available in six colors)

When stored at room temperature, the butter can last for up to 30 days!

Promising review: “This butter dish solves the butter problem once and for all! This unique butter dish holds a whole stick of butter at once. It’s always perfectly soft and ready to easily spread! It looks nice on the countertop, too. I got this product for my mother and she adores it so much! It’s truly one of her favorite kitchen items. Just get it! This would be an excellent gift to anyone for any occasion!” —larua arial

Price: $9.99+ (available in six colors)

Promising review: “Best peeler I’ve ever used! I LOATHED peeling potatoes and carrots especially because of carpal tunnel. This peeler came up as a deal one day, so I decided, why not? It wasn't advertised as ‘ergonomic,’ which is what someone with bad hands looks for.

I love it SO much I bought a second for myself and one for my daughter. She wasn't convinced until she tried it the first time. She called me just to say thank you. Making stew, soup and salad, is no longer time-consuming or hand-aching work. Lickety split, no mess, no fuss and my veggies are ready to go in no time.” —Dawn Moreno

Price: $8.07+ (available in five colors)

Promising review: “Never knew I needed this until I got it! This is one of those kitchen gadgets that I've lived over 40 years without... and now that I have it, I don't know how I didn't have one. Great for breaking up ground meat and even works well for mixing/mashing certain ingredients (whole tomatoes, etc.) for soups/stews. So far, seems to be durable, and washes up easily either by hand or with the dishwasher.” —Charlie’s Mom

Price: $6.99+ (available in nine colors)

Promising review: “The handiest thing in my kitchen drawer — these scissors do it all! From cutting poultry to removing gristle from the bottom of a tri-tip roast, and any number of other kitchen items. I'm left-handed, and the grip is comfortable. They're very easy to clean, and the plastic sheath that comes with them is a plus, preventing me from gouging myself when looking for other items in the ‘sharp object’ drawer. I'm thinking about getting a second pair. I highly recommend these kitchen shears!” —Suzy-Q666

Price: $8.99+ (available in three colors)

Promising review: “Looks great and keeps my salt fresh! Love that its cover slides over opening smoothly. Keeps spices fresh and it is easy to use.” —mary kay

Price: $9.99

Promising review: “Very nice! I think every kitchen needs a magnetic knife rack. It gets your knives out of the drawers where real estate is at a premium, and knife blocks take up precious counter space. This rack is just the right size for me; holds my five knives perfectly. You'll probably want something bigger if you have a lot of knives, though.” —Alice

Price: $8 (available in two colors)

Promising review: “Gets the full mileage out of a good kitchen knife! I bought this because I was referred to use a kitchen steel instead of sharpeners for my kitchen knives. This has been worth every penny. Easy to use, good for honing knives, and with ring on the end for hanging from a hook, this is one of my essential kitchen items. Sharpen a clean dry knife, and after every sharpen, give the knife a rinse and wipe to remove the tiny metal particulates that appear in the sharpening process.” —Edd Black

Price: $7.99 (available in six colors)

Promising review: “These are pretty small, obviously, but they work great for setting up all your ingredients for cooking ahead of time. For me, it speeds up the cooking process and helps me not FORGET to put something in. I guess you could also use them to put ketchup in for a small batch of fries!” —FredJones

Price: $6.99+ (available in sets of six or 12 ramekins)

Promising review: “Well made and useful utensil holder! I cook a lot, and as a result use a lot of cooking utensils during the day. I was getting tired of going back and forth to the utensil drawer and digging through for spoons, spatulas, whisks, and the like. My wife had the same problem, and we decided to get a utensil holder to put next to the stove. We like the quality of the product and recommend it for others who are looking for a good place to keep your spatulas, spoons, and tongs.” —A Horse With No Name

Price $7.47

Promising review: “These trivets are perfect. They look great in my kitchen, can be stacked for storage, and do exactly what they’re supposed to: protect my counter from hot pots and scratches. I have two sets in the gray (because I use them for everything), and I bought a set in blue as a gift. The price is great, too.” —JAM

Price: $9.98 for a set of three (available in four color combinations)
