15+ Incredible Kitchen Products Which Actually Work!

15+ Incredible Kitchen Products Which Actually Work!

Definitely worth the storage space…

There’s nothing more satisfying than cooking a delicious slap up meal for the family or an incredible lunch for yourself when you’re in work. You feel organized, slightly smug and like you’ve really got your life in order. It’s always worth it for the end result- but let’s be honest- the preperation side of things can be really freakin’ irritating. You spend forever chopping, slicing, part-baking, marinating and so on- and when you’re hungry this feels like a lifetime. 

And do not even get us started on the washing up! 

That’s where these amazing products come in handy- they genuinely are a stroke of genius and are SO practical and time-saving! 

Have a look for yourself… 

1) This microwave rice cooker that’ll make perfectly steamed rice/veg every time, without the mess or hassle of using a pot or traditional rice cooker. Plus, you can pop the whole thing in the dishwasher! It’s a win/win! 

You can also use it to make steamed veggies!Promising review: "I've had this for seven months now, and I think it's still my favorite tool in my entire kitchen. I eat a ton of rice, and I love how easy this is to use and how easy it is to clean. It comes out consistently every time. I hated how messy cooking on the stove is, and my electric cooker got mold down inside the part that you can't wash. With this, there's no mess, and there's nowhere you can't clean or that can trap mold or bacteria. I can throw every part of it into the dishwasher after I'm done with it. It's awesome! I wish I'd had this back in college." —C. StoneGet it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in four colors).

2. An actual magical machine for transforming frozen fruit into a sweet soft serve — you need this in your cupboards for summer!

Promising review: "Easy, fast, and works amazingly well. LOVE this product! Now I have something to do with all my bananas. Also, it makes really good Acai bowls (packets from Costco). It's easy, fast, relatively quiet and cleans up easy. What else can be said. If you have kids, they will love helping you make soft serve ice cream. We made pineapple last night — so yummy." —Cheryl AndersonGet it from Amazon or Walmart for $39.99.

3. A stainless steel bar that’ll save your hands from disgusting odors (even the really smelly one’s like fish, garlic, and onions!).

Promising review: "For years we have been just using large metal spoons or the sides of our metal sink to remove various odors from our hands (i.e. after chopping garlic or onions). Finally, I said to myself, 'Self, we need to move into the 21st century and get a metal bar'....and Ta-Daaaaah! I am really glad that we bought this because it looks really nice and it works so much better than a spoon or sink. For anyone that doesn't believe that this type of thing works, go ahead and chop 10 cloves of garlic and then rub your hands on this bar under cold running water. The results will speak for themselves. I would highly recommend this to anyone." —Sergio DaSilveiraGet it from Amazon or Jet for $8.99.

4. Clip-on stands to keep your bags upright while pouring in leftovers for storage. GENIUS…

They're *also* great for air drying bags you've washed out to reuse.Promising review: "I cook all of my meals and freeze them once a month. These stands have been a godsend. I can prep, pack, and freeze six meals in under 10 minutes. That means in an hour I knock out more than a month's worth of dinners for my family of eight. This holds the smallest and tallest bags and keeps the outside of the bag clean. These bags have saved us so much money. These are not flimsy and are made from sturdy material, yet fold flat for easy storage. I could go on and on about these; they are such a great product." —Joshua WilsonGet a pack of two from Amazon for $10.97 or Jet for $11.99.

It comes with a cool charging stand that glows blue, and the opener can open up to 30 bottles on a single charge.Promising review: "I had one of the earliest electric wine openers, but it finally gave up the ghost. Boy, am I glad now! This new one is fantastic! It's really easy to use, takes no effort — you don't have to hang onto the bottle so it doesn't spin, like my old one — and it looks attractive on the counter." —MaryGet it from Amazon for $19.99.

6. An air fryer with seven-built in programs for perfectly cooked fries, wings, and so much more with little or NO oil.

Promising review: "I couldn't believe that is machine would fry without oil and food would come out crispy. Boy, was I wrong. This air fryer is fantastic, and all the foods that I have prepared in this thing have come out very, very delicious. My hamburgers come out nice and juicy, and the fries come out nice and crispy, and not limp. I have made cheese sticks and also shrimp, and they come out crispy and delicious. I don't have to use any oil when I use this, and that makes me very happy. It was great using this in the summer, because I didn't have to use my oven. I am a big, big, fan of air fryers. The GoWise is great, and the price is very reasonable. I just love, love this product." —MluzGet it from Amazon for $77.99 or a similar, highly-reviewed model from Walmart for $79.88.

7. An omelet maker that’ll deliver a yummy and healthy breakfast from the microwave to your plate in just a matter of minutes — and will taste like it was made on the stove! 

Promising review: "This brings omelets to my weekday breakfast. I've been trying to eat a low-carb diet, and the idea of eggs for breakfast appeals to me. But, I am *so* NOT a morning person; and getting up early to stir a low-n-slow scramble just does not work for me. I've tried microwaving eggs in custard cups but they always turned out either soupy & underdone or firm but dry & rubbery. But this makes them Just Right, every time, in two minutes flat. That's less time than it takes me to brew my coffee. Two or three eggs, some herbs, a few chopped veggies, and perhaps a sprinkle of cheese makes for a quick, easy, and tasty breakfast." —Vanilla ChameleonGet it from Amazon for $14.

It comes with two whisking blades and two cutting blades for all your culinary needs. You can also remover the separator and chop twice as much of the same ingredient!Promising review: "This thing is bad to the bone. So freaking easy. I just love pulling this to chop!

9. A Instant Pot with seven functions, including (deep breath) pressure cooking, slow-cooking, making rice, sautéing, making yogurt, steaming food…and keeping your dinner warm.

Promising review: "My wife kept telling me we should get this. For months I resisted. We had a Crock-Pot, so why bother? We finally got this on sale on black Friday, and I LOVE IT. Quicker than a Crock-Pot and better end results. You can season your protein and cook it with veggies (which take on the flavor as well). After using this, anything you cook in a Crock-Pot seems like a warm, swampy product. Anything you cook in this is moist, flavorful, tender excellence in just a fraction of the time. Do not hesitate to buy this product — you will thank yourself for meals to come." —JonGet the six-quart size from Amazon or Walmart for $99.95 (also available in three-quart and eight-quart sizes).

Get them from Amazon (also available in sets of multiples) or Walmart for $6.45+ each.

Promising review: “Great item! Day six with a salad in one, fresh green beans in one and mushrooms in the small one — they are ALL still fresh! Mushrooms, especially, get slimy after just a few days. No slime in the Freshworks containers!” —A. Bock

11. A pineapple corer to help you stop spending a fortune on pre-cut pineapple. Perfect if “YOU LIKE PINA COLADAS” 

Promising review: "This thing is amazing. It works great! I prefer buying whole pineapples for a couple bucks (or even less on sale) vs. a much marked up price for the pre-cut stuff. However, it used to take me 20 mins to go through the whole process of cutting off all the inedible bits, even after watching multiple youtube videos on what was the 'best' way. I can now be completely done with the process in less than two minutes. Cut off the top, drill, and extract. That's it! I'm more than happy to sacrifice just a bit of usable fruit in trade for a 10x time savings!" —CSGet it from Amazon for $7.99 or a similar one from Walmart for $6.68.

12. A two-level steamer that’ll cook fish, meat, and veggies healthily and deliciously — it is ideal for people who cannot cook AT ALL.

Promising review: "This steamer is so easy to use and easy to clean. I cooked chicken in it (marinated and normally seasoned) and it tasted delicious. I like to bake chicken (never ate steamed chicken) and I was so surprised how much I loved the steamer chicken! The chicken was perfectly cooked and the veggies were so soft and yummy. I am in love with this steamer!!!!" —Melissa SmithGet it from Amazon for $22.97 or Jet for $29.86.

It totally works — and this one has over 1,000 glowing reviews!Get it from Amazon for $6.49.Promising review: "It really works! My least favorite part about cooking is peeling all the little garlic cloves. This thing peels them in a snap! I don't have to smash each clove and pick the pieces of skin apart from the pieces of crushed garlic. The skin just slides right off! 10/10 would recommend." —Ruth Dickhoff

15. A pair of claw shredders you need to get your hands on ASAP! Perfect for all of your meat carving and pulling needs.

Promising review: "These claws are just what you need for shredding pork, chicken, beef or any other items. The points are sharp, narrow, and long and work well as a pair. It's much more efficient and quicker than using two forks. I thought I might have been a little extravagant in ordering this but now I realize it is very useful beyond shredding — e. g., holding a watermelon with one hand/claw as you cut with the other hand." —J. RenfrowGet them from Amazon (available in six colors) or Walmart for $12.95.

16. Cheese storage paper that’ll keep your favorite fromages fresh for way longer!

Promising review: "Before I bought this cheese paper I would do the cheese search in the refrigerator. After buying cheeses, opening them, and then rewrapping them in heaven knows what (namely plastic wrap, aluminum foil, and plastic containers), it was always the same result: moldy cheese. This box contains the paper in sheets plus some stickers that you can write on with the name of the cheese and the date it was wrapped or even sell by date. There are also pictures of a sheep, cow, and goat so the source can be identified by circling or checking one of them! What I also like is that the cheeses can be rewrapped after use and amazingly the stickers still stick! The paper can also be cut to size to wrap smaller cheeses. So far I have noted that the cheeses have stayed fresh with not a trace of mold. I highly recommend this product to all cheese lovers!" —Prairie WomanGet a package of 15 large sheets from Amazon for $12.95 or a set of 15 storage bags from Jet for $14.95.

17. A chopping bowl guaranteed to change your salad game as you know it; just toss in your greens and veggies, run your knife through the slots, rinse, and you’re good to go. Eating healthy has never been easier…

Promising review: "It is such a time saver; just stick your ingredients in and start slicing. I really don't have time to individually slice things, due to having three little kids running around. So this is perfect for my needs. I put lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes in the cutter bowl, and my salad came out perfect in half the time! It is made out of HDPE+PP Food Grade Material so that always is a plus! It is also dishwasher safe! The plastic isn't flimsy at all and it seems to be sturdy. I would recommend this product to anyone." —Dan CakirGet it from Amazon for $10.99.
