Amazon / Spiralizer
Trade pasta for veggie noodles with the original Spiralizer ($24) for a meal that’s low in carbs but high in flavor.

Amazon / Instant Pot
The Instant Pot ($100) is the trendiest appliance of 2017 (and ’18) for good reason: It’s a pressure cooker, slow cooker, steamer, rice cooker, yogurt maker, saute pan, and warmer all in one. Basically, it’s the solution to all of your dinner dilemmas. But, don’t miss the 5 things you shouldn’t make in an instant pot.
Amazon / Spring Chef
You’ll quickly become a pie-making pro with the help of this mixing tool. Use the pastry blender ($10) to combine wet and dry ingredients when you’re making dough, then bake one of these perfect pie recipes. Bonus: If your pastry blender breaks, the company will replace it for free.
Pre-seasoned cast iron skillet
Amazon / Lodge
Everything tastes better when it’s cooked in cast iron. This one ($15) comes pre-seasoned, meaning it’s already nonstick and ready to use as soon as you open the box. Here’s the right way to clean and care for your cast iron skillet so it lasts longer.
Digital food scale
Trying to convert grams and ounces to cups is not only annoying, but it can also be inaccurate. Measure your baking ingredients more precisely by weighing them on this kitchen scale ($15) that weighs up to 11.24 pounds. Don’t miss these ways you might be using your kitchen equipment wrong.
Nut milk bag
Amazon / Ellie's Best
There are plenty of reasons to drink nut milk, whether you’re lactose intolerant, vegan or simply want a protein-packed alternative. But store-bought almond and cashew milk can be expensive. Make your own at home with this nut milk bag ($12) which is basically a fine mesh strainer that can double as a coffee filter or cheese maker.
Doughnut baking pans
Amazon / Wilton
“Donut” pass up this pair of pastry pans ($14). Nonstick and dishwasher-safe, they’re also an easy way to make a dozen slightly healthier doughnuts that are baked, not fried. Use the pans to whip up one of these favorite doughnut recipes.
Lock N’ Lift can opener
Need to open a can of pumpkin for one of these tantalizing fall treats? Now you, well, can. This convenient can opener ($15) has a magnet on the front so you can easily remove the lid once you cut it and a lever that will let you deposit the lid right into the recycling bin.
Amazon / Bellemain
More cheese, please! Your wish is also your demand with this adjustable cheese slicer ($10). The stainless steel wire cutter lets you cut slices of whatever width you prefer, from paper thin to 1/4-inch thick. Check out these secret uses for ordinary kitchen objects.
Stovetop espresso maker
Amazon / Bialetti
Skip the pricey Starbucks order and make your own cup of espresso with this barista-approved Bialetti Moka ($35). In less than five minutes, you’ll have six cups of delicious bold brew. One reviewer says, “I used to be happy with a French press but now that’s packed away. I can’t go back—God bless those Italians!”
Silicone baking cups
Amazon / Pantry Elements
Just when you thought cupcakes couldn’t get any cuter, we found these colorful liners ($10). The best part? They’re made of silicone so you can wash them and reuse them. Plus, they aren’t just for cupcakes—put them in lunch boxes as snack dividers for a bento box feel.
Amazon / Mueller Austria
Say goodbye to everyone’s least favorite kitchen task: dicing onions. This veggie chopper ($23), which can cut a variety of fruits and vegetables, will do it for you with just a press of the lid. And it traps in the aromas of the onions so you’ll stay tear-free.
Vacu Vin wine saver
Amazon / Vacu Vin
On those rare occasions when you don’t finish the bottle of red you opened, keep it fresh in the fridge with this rubber stopper ($13). It’s completely airtight, sealing the bottle so that the wine doesn’t oxidize. If you don’t want to save the wine, use up the rest of the bottle in one of these flavorful vino-starring recipes.
