What’s in your kitchen? I hope it’s one of these 35 kitchen gadgets! They save space, make clean up easier, help in your cooking and sometimes, they are just really cute alternatives to things you have to buy anyways.
These kitchen must haves won’t break the bank either! Most are under $20 (with a lot under $10!) Your kitchen will be the best stocked and ready to go thanks to these helpful items!
There are tons of awesome kitchen gadgets that won’t break the bank. I have several of these and plan on ordering the ones I don’t have already. I use them all the time and they come in super handy. Here are some of my favorites, that you probably don’t have, but totally should!
This Folding Grater ($9.99) is perfect for people like me! I love gadgets (obviously), but I don’t like clutter. This folds down flat so it makes storing it no problem and it doesn’t take up much room.
I own a few sets of these and I absolutely love them. Whether you use them occasionally to help with leftovers or if you are getting into freezer cooking, these hands free bag holders come in crazy handy. They are a bargain too, only $9.99 for a set of two.
Another item that I have bought and can tell you personally about it’s amazingness, this Pineapple Corer (only $6.79) makes coring a pineapple only take seconds. Bonus: We’ve had a few luau parties and this not only helped with our fruit dishes, but the hollowed out pineapples made for perfect vases for flowers. You could also fill them back up with cut fruit.
I haven’t personally used these, but I did just order them on Amazon. These Silicone Bowls are called Pinch Bowls and you can gently pinch them to make pouring simple and ditch the mess. (Choose from quart size or half cup size!)
Confession. I love garlic, but I normally just buy the jars of already minced garlic. But this little garlic chopper is not only under $10, but it’s simple to use and allows you to use fresh garlic (yum) easily.
Ok, well, I kind of just thought this was hilarious. These pasta measurers make sure you get the right amount of pasta every time. Portions for kids, women, men and for those times that you are so hungry you could eat a … Horse, T-Rex, or Unicorn!
This Clip on Spout is only $9.95 and can attach to pots, pans or bowls. Whether you need to drain or pour it comes in handy, doesn’t take up much room and you will quickly start to wonder what you did without it!
Have you heard of Anti Soggy Bowls? They are divided bowls that keep your cereal from getting soggy. Genius right? But they are pretty handy. Chips on one side and dip on the other, fries on the left and ketchup on the right or soup and your crackers. They are also perfect for people that don’t like their food touching. My son wet through a phase that he didn’t like that, so these were perfect. Mac and cheese completely separate from the green beans. #MomWin $8.95
Here is another item that has really made things easier at our house! Dip trays! They snap on your plates. Perfect for dips and also sauces. Great for BBQ’s and you know, Wednesday night dinners. Get four of them for only $6.99!
We have been trying to be healthier at our house. One of those changes is eating more fish. I use this Citrus Sprayer (only $6.20!) all the time. But not just for fish, I spray it on veggies, a few sprays in my tea, and I would totally be lying if I didn’t admit that I first thought about doing a flashback of spraying lemon juice in my hair this summer. (Please, tell me someone else used to use Sun In back in the day!)
This is another one of those things that is just a cute upgrade to something you already have. This Pasta-saurus ($9.95) is a super fun way to serve up your pasta dinner.
Yes, yes, yes. Everyone needs two of these. Just clip it to the side of your pot and your spoon rests without making a drippy mess all over your stove. I’m all for anything to simplify clean up! Get the Pot Clip for only $8.95.
This is honestly one of my favorites! This flat whisk allows you to do your thing, turn the handle and it folds flat. Why is that amazing? Because it makes getting it ALL out of the bowl super easy. Not only that, but cleaning is simple. I always hated cleaning the whisks – food gets inside the middle and it’s hard to get, but not anymore. And finally for storage – it takes up less space! Oh, and yes, it’s under $10!
No, they aren’t staplers. These are bag re-sealers! For $15.99 you get a set of 2 (so only $8 each!) and they quickly will pay for themselves. Reseal bags of cereal, chips, or snacks in no time.
These Grill Clips are a must have for grill masters! You get a set of 4 for $10 to help you make the perfect grilled veggies.
Ready for some more awesome items that you shouldn’t be without? Here are some that are under $20!
This little gadget ($11.95) comes in super handy during baking. Easily separate the egg yolks and egg whites for recipes. Or if you are wanting to eat a healthier breakfast, scramble up the egg whites.
I love a good cup of tea. Recently I started switching to dried tea leaves from tea bags. It is fresh and makes me able to customize my blends. While looking for a tea infuser, I came across this adorable Whale Tea Infuser for just $11.19. Not only is it super practical and easy to use (the water spout never gets hot!) but it’s adorable.
Have you seen those viral videos on Facebook where they make incredible pancakes in the shapes of famous characters, people, etc? This is how! With a Pancake Pen – $10.95 – you can create a fun breakfast. I haven’t graduated to pancake art, but my son thinks it’s pretty awesome for pancakes that spell out his name.
This Double Dish is genius. Perfect for snacking, the empty bowl on the bottom is ideal for discarding shells, seeds or pits of your favorite snack. For $15.15, it’s just what you need for binge watching on the couch with your snacks.
Speaking of genius products, this Rinse and Strain Bowl – $14.69 – is one of those things that make you say, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Quick and easy….music to my ears!
Ok, so I haven’t tried this yet, but I ordered it today. However, I’m totally late in the spiralizing game – this thing has been getting major buzz and awesome reviews. The Vegetable Spiralizer is only $15.84 and comes with everything you need to get started creating a healthier version of pasta or some super awesome veggie side dishes. A bonus recipe book is included.
In my dreams, I have a double oven. But meanwhile, I have an Oven Rack (only $17.49) that helps me to make the most out of space that I do have! Seriously a game changer for parties and holiday cooking!
I’m not entirely sure how it happened, but somehow I ended up with a full knife block on the counter and a drawer full of loose knives. This Knife Organizer was a cheap (just $13.53) way to organize my drawer. Not to mention it’s a lot safer than fishing around a drawer with them just loose!
These Chip/Cracker Holders are crazy handy to have in your pantry. Keep your food fresh longer. They will quickly pay for themselves!
I don’t use my flour and sugar that often, so I like to keep them in a Flour Keeper . For $16.78, I know it stays fresh and ready to use. The measuring level on the lid makes things easy getting the perfect cup full.
I got this cutting board before we moved into our current house. I was seriously slacking counter space, so the fact that this fit over the sink made it a great space saver. But now, we have plenty of counter space, but the built in strainer is so handy that I don’t think I can ever get rid of it! Over the sink cutting board – $19.99
Can you believe how many awesome things we have found so far? We are almost done with our list, but here are a few under $50 that you totally need.
This would be a great gift – for yourself or someone else! It’s great for small kitchens or for people who just love organized kitchens! Get the Compact Food Prep Set for $34.27.
Why dirty a second dish if you don’t need to? This lid eliminates the need to dirty a second one. It makes it super simple to drain and strain. I have this pot and use it all the time. The Pasta Pot was totally worth the $29.99!
This little Marinade Infuser and meat tenderizer is amazing. You won’t believe the difference that this $34.98 gadget makes as opposed to just marinating in a plastic bag. But don’t just take my word for it, this has great reviews!
Are you a hostess? Then you need this Party Tray with Ice for your next soiree! For only $27.95, you have a great serving dish with built in ice chamber to keep your dishes ready for guests to much on.
This is brilliant. The Click N Cook is one handle that simply ‘clicks’ off and attaches to one of 5 different attachments. Buying the set makes each kitchen necessity cost less than $10 each!
This Cutlery cleaning attaches to your sink and makes cleaning your silverware a breeze. Just dip your spoon, fork, etc inside and everything easily scrubs off. If you hand wash your dishes or use a dishwasher, this makes sure you get super clean dishes the simple way!
I NEED this!! I have a serious ice cream love and this lets you make your own soft serve from fruit! How awesome is that? Fruit Soft Serve Maker – $41.27
Only 2 kitchen gadgets left! These two are both under $125 and worth every penny!
I bought this Food Saver ($79.99) a while ago and I LOVE it. It is worth every penny and so much more. Actually, it saves us money! I can make meals ahead of time, use it to package up our Zaycon orders (I save SO much money from ordering our meats from them!) and re-seal our open food. One tip is to use them for packing for trips! I have made ‘pouches’ for bringing dog food with us (SO much easier for car rides to have ‘single serve’ packs made up) and even vacuum sealed my necklaces to keep the chains from tangling.
I haven’t tried this…yet. Have you seen it before? It’s an Air Fryer – $109.95 – and makes your favorite fried foods a bit healthier. You can fry meat and veggies in here and it uses air to circulate and ‘fry’ instead of the traditional oil. I will be getting one ASAP! If you have one I would love to hear what you think of it!
