13 Kitchen Products You’ll Probably Wonder How You Ever Lived Without

1. Folding Trash Bin

Promising review:

“This had made my life much easier in the kitchen. I chop veggies, herbs, etc. on a daily basis and this little guy is super handy. I was concerned about it not being as great as it is because of the knobs on the kitchen drawers, however, it works perfectly off to the side of the knob. Fits nice and snug. I highly recommend this product.”—Casey Rubin

2. Kitchen Pineapple Corer and Slicer Tool

Promising review:

“This works great! Easy to start into pineapple, fairly easy to twist to the bottom of the pineapple, and then pull out the perfect spiral ring! Core stays in the pineapple. I buy and eat a lot more pineapple and cottage cheese now, my health food kick. Pull the pineapple rings out, run a sharp knife from top to bottom and the spiral becomes slices that you can refrigerate to make the pineapple last a lot longer.
This thing is very solid and well built, and really easy to clean! Pop the handle off, rinse that and the stainless steel tool part under very hot running water, air dry, you’re done.
Saves a lot of money over canned pineapple and much more healthy, no added sugar.” —K. Jones

3. An Over The Sink Cutting Board And Stainer

Promising review:

“This is an extremely useful cutting board with the collapsible bowl for washing vegetables and fruits, draining them, or depositing scraps. It fits nicely over my sink and is easily cleaned and stored. Find myself using it every day!” —Patty Boh

4. Quick Defrost Meat With Drip Tray

Promising review:

“Was quite surprised at how quick this defrosting tray works, the first time I used it I had three frozen pork chops that were about 2” thick normally I would defrost them in the fridge and it would take at least a day on this try they were fully defrosted in about 45 minutes, this time I was defrosting Barramundi fish usually I would defrost them in a bowl of water this time I had the defrosting tray they were ready in 15 minutes. Love this defrosting tray” —Kayce Cawthon

5. Dish Cleaning Squeegee Brush

Promising review:

“If you have ever had to repair or replace a garbage disposal, then I am sure you have been lectured on basically only allowing crumbs to fall into the disposal. This dish squeegee makes prepping dishes for a dishwasher or sink washing a breeze. I hold the dish over the trash can and after a few swipes, the dish is ready for washing. In comparison to using a paper towel, it saves you money, helps protect the environment, and keeps your fingers free from gunk.” —Clara

6. Multi-Layer Egg Storage Container

Promising review:

This egg holder has been extremely handy, having two drawers also helps keep the eggs sorted so my family knows which ones to use first and where to put the ones just brought in from the coop. I plan to buy another as our egg supply increases. It’s well made, the drawers slide easily, it fits perfectly in my fridge, and eggs of all sizes fit perfectly even the extra-large ones! I definitely recommend this for anyone with a small hobby farm or families that use a lot of eggs.” —Nicole Keef

7. Mini Bag Sealer

Promising review:

“Such a cool product and for such a great price! I’m still getting used to the sealing part but it’s kind of fun to seal random snacks that are in my pantry and now I don’t have to worry about food getting stale! Now I don’t have to have a whole bunch of rubber bands or chip clips.” —Sean Bradley

8. BladeBrush Knife and Cutlery Cleaner

Promising review:

“I discovered this product after a very severe cut to my thumb recently. A little too late, but now I feel it is a must-have! I don’t know why I have never thought of having one of these before. I have a set of chef knives I use all the time. The cube they are stored in has self-sharpening slots so they are kept super sharp all the time. I recently got a very severe cut while washing one of them and… a sharp reminder of how dangerous they can be.
I purchased the Blade brush and it has been a game-changer! I can now wash my knives thoroughly and safely. It is very well made – it fits well in my hand and is not slippery to hold; it does not bend or collapse at all no matter the pressure you apply to it.
I squirt a dab of dish soap on the bristles and insert the knife and rub it up and down several times and the knife is cleaned. I feel that it is even cleaner than when I used to clean my knives with my dish towel and that’s a great feeling. Love it” —Erin O.

9. Watermelon Cutter

Promising review:

“I was skeptical of this product doing what it is advertised to do. Imagine my surprise when it actually worked better than stated. I love this thing. Hope it doesn’t wear out over the summer cutting melons. One small tip. Cut watermelon in half. Then cut off each end so you can run the cutter straight through without hitting the rind.” —Noel Johnson

10. Knife Sharpening Tool

Promising review:

“This product is very high quality. There is a lot of weight to it and it grips very well to any surface when using it to sharpen. I have sharpened all of my knives with it and it really works very well. I have had nice knife sharpeners in the past and this one holds up to those others while still being affordable. I could not recommend this more to anyone looking for an affordable knife sharpener.” —Kristie Barton

11. A Stackable Cutlery Drawer Organizer

A stackable cutlery drawer organizer so you can neatly fit all your utensils in your drawer — even if you’re limited on space.

Promising review:

“I bought two of these, and I’m very pleased with them. The non-slip feature on the bottom is great — you won’t have cutlery sliding around when you open and close your drawers. I would highly recommend.” —Chelsea C.

12. Pancake Batter Dispencer

Promising review:

“Finally a kitchen utensil that saves time, mess, and frustration! I ordered this because my 10-year-old daughter loves to make pancakes but she also leaves an incredible mess. She also loves to make cupcakes and that’s even a double mess. Upon receiving the batter dispenser, my daughter took it out of the package and started making pancakes right away without my instructions. She loved the ease to make the pancakes in the container and then one click on the pan with no mess. Thank you for your excellent customer support!! We will recommend this to our family and friends.” —Jim Hudson

13. Garlic Press

A stainless-steel rocking garlic press that makes mincing, crushing, and peeling your favorite vampire-fighting vegetable so easy and quick.

Promising review:

“I like garlic very much, so I use this garlic press every day. It works very well, is easy to use, and is easy to clean. Compared with the garlic press I used before, this is more labor-saving and comfortable.” —Jessica
