Promising review: "I’ve had this for a couple of months now, and it makes my life SOOOOO much easier. Anything I’ve thrown at it, it’s sliced with ease. Tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, onions, celery, carrots...EASY! I even use to chop the eggs when I make potato salad now since it’s so easy and makes perfect slices...What used to take me three to four mins chopping up an onion and then a face full of ruined makeup, now takes less than one minute and no makeup ruined. The blades are SHARP, definitely be careful when removing them. But the lock on the tray makes it easy and so far I haven’t hurt myself with it. Typically, I’ll use it and then rinse out the top and put it in the dishwasher. It’s been through on the top rack well over 20 times now and still looks brand new. If something ever happens to this one, I’ll be back to get another one. It saves me so much time when cooking dinner!" —Macygrey09

Promising review: "I have a tiny kitchen with only three drawers, so space is at a premium. My silverware organizer took up almost all of one drawer, so this organizer is a godsend. You can fit quite a few spoons, etc. in each slot. My beater attachments fit perfectly into the top two hollows. I will say I have to flip my forks over face down in order to be able to shut and open my drawer, but then the drawer itself is kind of shallow. You NEED this if you have a small kitchen with few drawers!" —mialro

The SodaStream also comes with a 60-liter Co2 cylinder, a one-liter BPA-free reusable carbonating bottle, and lime flavoring! Reviewers suggest also buying two CO2 cartridges and trying various natural fruit flavors to spice things up!
Promising review: "Why didn't I buy this sooner? Let me start by saying I drink a lot… A LOT… of seltzer. I was going through multiple cans a day which added up quickly in my garage and was a hassle to return). The Sodastream Terra has been a welcomed change in our household. I keep three 1L bottles cold on hand in the fridge at all times and rotate them around as we use them. The machine itself is so easy to use and fits right under the cabinets in my kitchen with very little footprint. The first canister lasted around a month, depending on how much fizz you enjoy it could last more or less. The CO2 quick connect is very easy to install as well making this item 1000% worth the time and energy to make my own seltzer vs buying at the store." —MM

Promising reviews: "I’m obsessed with this sprayer!! I think I want to buy a few more because they’re the perfect size and so versatile! 1) The main selling point was how stylish and classy they look… It really upgrades the look of the the typical oil sprays, and makes it look expensive!! 2) It saves a lot of money in the long run! Goodbye the days of me buying $4 olive oil spray and throwing away the canister with about a months use. I can use a giant jug of olive oil for maybe $15 and use this spray to refill about 10 times!! 3) The way it sprays is honestly flawless. The size is perfect to me, small enough to fit with the spices in the spice cabinet but not too small because it can still probably last a good while." —Monica
"This is a great item for lightly spraying salads, roasting vegetables, or adding some oil to a prepared plate of pasta. Avoids using more oil than necessary so that’s a saving right there. I also use it to put a light coating of oil on all my cast iron cookware to prevent rust. Best of all, it looks great on the dinner table. Lots of uses which really makes it an asset in the kitchen. It seems that it should last a while so I think it is worth the few bucks spent." —Clancy

Promising review: "Do I really need a tea bag organizer? That's what I was thinking when I ordered this. And when I took it out of the box. And when I filled the first little bag holder. But as the pile of empty boxes grew larger, I knew the answer was yes, I do need a tea bag organizer. I was using a whole shelf and a half of jumbled tea boxes that I had to sift through to look for a specific tea. In the end, I think this held about eight or nine boxes of tea bags (I crammed some of them). I am so happy that I got this!" —Sarah C.

The kettle beeps three times when the water is heated to your liking and then it shuts off which is nice. The weight of this beauty is very sufficient and the gooseneck pour is elegant and fun.

"Since I started cooking sous vide, my family says my cooking has gone to a new level. I started with the original Anova, and just recently picked up this Nano. The Nano is awesome because it's much smaller vs. the first Anova, making it easier to store in a drawer or something. It sounds trivial but by making it easier to grab. Setup is so much quicker, and I can cook a beef roast for 30 hours without adding ANY water. If you're just starting out in sous vide, I recommend this cooker." —Jeff Nichols

Promising review: "I'm obsessed with it. This Cosori air fryer is incredibly easy to operate and clean. The design is sleek and appealing (I leave it out on my counter). And the results have greatly exceeded my expectations. I'm hooked and I think for the foreseeable future I will be using this almost every day. Here are just a few examples of what I've made so far:- Brussels sprouts: the results of cooking these at home in a normal gas oven have always sucked. While not quite restaurant quality (restaurants use oil fryers) the Cosori comes incredibly close and shaves about 10 min of cooking time.- Reheating french fries: This alone was worth the purchase. They were crispy and just as delicious as the night before.- Reheating steak that I cooked to a rare temp the night before on the pan: no complaints and super easy to clean afterward.- Bacon: Way faster, way cleaner (and can easily save the bacon fat) and turned out perfect.I'm so excited to experiment more with this awesome machine. 5/5" —Nolan S.

"This product is amazing. Every time I ran the dishwasher there was this horrible smell. So much that you could smell it throughout the apartment. I even started just hand-washing my dishes. But after about a week, the smell came back. I bought so many products to try and eliminate the smell, but after a couple of days, it would come back. Then I saw this product on BuzzFeed and thought to myself, why not? The first time I used it cleaned it out pretty well. Better than the other products. But then I used it a second time, and there was no smell. I'm going on two weeks of using my dishwasher, and I can't smell anything. I highly recommend this if you're having the same problem I was.

This Instant Pot happens to be a #1 best seller with over 36,000 5-star reviews!
Promising reviews: "I thought the hype was just hype, but this is the kitchen tool I didn't know I would love as much as I do. From frozen to cooked chicken while retaining more moisture than any other method I am used to using." —Amanda T.
"If you're wondering if the hype about instant pots is legit, I'm here to tell you that it IS and you need one. It's really helped me since I frequently forget to thaw meat the night before. Also, being able to throw everything in and have a fantastic white chicken chili come out in less than an hour, is just ideal... It came with a little recipe booklet, as well as a cheat sheet of reference times for cooking, which is hugely helpful, since I don't always want to Google for every single thing I cook. It works as a slow cooker, pressure cooker, has a saute function, can cook rice, make yogurt, steam eggs, and basically anything else you want. It's been helpful for me because I've been able to branch out into different meats that I might not normally have the time or know-how to cook properly. If you're stressed about safety, this is reassuring because the directions are very clear, and it locks in. I was really freaked the first time I used it, and knew nothing about pressure cookers or Instant Pots at all the first day....Anyways, the amount of cupboard space this takes up is worth it, and if we had a bigger kitchen I would leave it out all the time on the counter. I love it THAT much." —emrev

BuzzFeed's own Samantha Wieder absolutely loves this egg cooker:
"I love cooking, I really do, but there are two very inconvenient times that my cooking laziness strikes, and that is first thing in the morning when I wake up, and at the end of the day when it's time for dinner. Thankfully, in the morning, I now have this rapid egg cooker which allows me to make soft-, medium-, or hard-boiled eggs, poached eggs, or an omelet, all without having to stand over the stove.
It's also a great way to whip up a high protein snack during the day when you're busy with work, school, or just in the middle of a very important Netflix binge. The egg maker will let out a sound when your eggs are cooked, and then all you have to do is enjoy them!"
Promising review: "I didn't believe the hype until I bought it for myself. My boiled eggs come out perfect EVERY TIME. Trust me this is not one of those kitchen products you buy to make life easier that just ends up sitting on top of the cabinet collecting dust.

It keeps the cupboard organized and I can see what I have and quickly grab the bottle I need. As a bonus, it also creates a built-in limitation on how many water bottles I can have at any given time. Really recommend." —Miki

"Can't recommend these beeswax wraps enough. The antimicrobial aspect of the beeswax keeps fruits and vegetables super fresh for much longer than plastic bags. They keep bread soft and fresh for much longer than Ziplocs. They are so much better for the environment, and they can be reused for months. We have been using our set for almost two years and they are still as good as new. No waste! Just make sure to wash them with cool water, as warm/hot water will melt the wax." —Publisher

Promising review: "These are my new favorite cleaning tool. They worked great for dishes, but they are even more useful for cleaning the house. I am going to get a second pair to use for dishes and keep this pair for cleaning the bathroom. So great for scrubbing the tub/toilet/sink etc. You can easily clean in small crevices with these and you don’t have to worry about dirty rags and brushes because they are easy to sterilize and everything rinses right off of them. I am so happy with these!" —Brittany

Promising review: "Love! Love! Love the GarlicZoom! Mincing garlic has never been more easy or fun. It makes mince work out of garlic, onion, chilies and herbs. I'm not sure what I love most about this little gadget. Not smelling stinky garlic fingers all night? No burning fingers or eyes from chopping a super hot chile? Or mincing fresh herbs in a blink of an eye. I have a problem wrist from an injury and an arm and hand that suffers from nerve damage. I can still manage to zoom this. When people ask if the can help in the kitchen, this is the chore that I give them and everyone loves it. They think it's the neatest little thing." —Kennedy Collins

I own the cream-colored sauté pan from this set, and OMG, the hype is absolutely real. This cookware is gorge in person, but I love that it's actually non-stick! It's so easy to cook on, it's easy to clean, and it's cute enough to leave on top of the stove for all (i.e. me) to see. I'd say it's definitely worth the investment!

Psst — a lot of reviewers with arthritis swear by these for pain-free, easy opening, and parents say it makes it a lot easier for kids to open jars, too!
Promising review: "Having had arthritis in my hands since my teens, I have used many jar/bottle openers out of necessity. The OXO ones work well, but wear out within a year because of the volume of usage. This fabulous opener has yet to find a container that it cannot easily open, even bottles of water with heavily sealed caps. I love it so much I ordered another one to have in two drawers on either end of my kitchen. This gripper does not exacerbate my carpel tunnel syndrome, either. I would give it more stars if I could." —Patrizia L.

Promising reviews: "I could not get my flatware to come out clean from the dishwasher and I wondered if it was the hard water. I was using up to three soap blocks in each load with only partial improvement. I used this the first time and voilà! Perfectly clean flatware for the first time. I LOVE this!" —Susan A
"We have ridiculously hard water...My dishes, especially my Pyrex bowls and casserole dishes were almost white from the build up. Nothing ever seemed clean. I tried this, and it’s an absolute miracle. My dishes are clean again. See the comparison in the picture [above on the right]. The bowl on the left is 'clean', it was washed without the Fibish booster. Bowl on the right was washed with. I’m totally not kidding- it completely does what it says!" —CB

Promising review: "Rice cookers are fantastic. I used to cook rice in a pot and I would invariably make subpar rice. This rice cooker makes fantastic rice, my only recommendation would be to use stock (chicken or vegetable) instead of water to give the rice a lot of extra flavor. It does a really great job of cooking rice perfectly and consistently. You can't beat the price either." —JP

Promising review: "I love these paperless towels. They are soft, absorbent, and great quality. I bought two packs of 12 and rolled them onto a cardboard cylinder and have them in my kitchen. Love the pattern. I chose all the same pattern but might consider ordering the variety next time to make it fun." —Lorie Mathe

Promising review: "If you’re having doubts about this blender, DON'T! It’s small and compact, the cord wraps around the bottom, which is nice! And most of all it blends amazingly! Just press the button and it starts, it’s not loud at all either, a lot quieter than the bigger ones. Easy to clean as well. Blends frozen food great! I had no problems making my smoothie with protein powder and multiple fruits as well...There's nothing caked up at the bottom or in the blades after I used it. Very happy overall and the color is pretty as well. Great buy especially if you have a small kitchen and just need a personal blender for smoothies etc." —Kim

Get them both from Amazon: the snack bag organizer for $29.98 (available in two sizes and four colors), and the plastic wrap organizer for $29.98 (available in three sizes and four colors).
Promising review: "This organizer is so useful! I recently moved and ended up with a much smaller kitchen, so I've been doing everything I can to make sure there's a place for everything and no wasted space. Luckily, I have pretty wide cabinets, so this works out perfectly. I have one holding my cutting boards (four standard plastic boards) and another holding my foil, cling wrap, and parchment paper boxes. The organizer is super easy to assemble and it's completely versatile. Hang it over the cabinet door or attach it to the wall/cabinet door, which means it's great for renters and owners." —Kerry

It makes cooking and baking so much easier, and your measurements will be more accurate! The set comes with 1-cup, 2-cup, and 4-cup angled measuring cups.
Promising review: "This is a very inventive design for something that cooks use every day. I originally purchased the 2-cup model of the Oxo measuring cup and liked it so much that I decided to buy the set. These are so much more usable than the Pyrex or Anchor traditional glass measuring cups because they so much easier to read. I have some Anchor measuring cups that are 20+ years old and the red markings have faded and are really hard to see. Since the Oxo can be read from the top, the measuring cup can rest on the counter for accurate measurement. No more holding it up in the air like a mad scientist measuring out liquids! Even the rubberized handle is well designed. Since these are made from clear plastic, they are very lightweight. The handle goes all the way to the counter to stabilize the measuring cup. It's very well thought out." —Bocaboy

Promising review: "I don't know why it took me so long to buy this thing, but I'm glad that I finally did. Yes, to some it might be silly, but there are times when I forget or can't tell whether my dishes and glassware are clean. This $3 magnetic sign saves me from washing the 'dirty' dishes another time." —Colmac
