The Most Useful Kitchen Gadgets
If you only buy one thing from this list, let it be this. I have had pasta maker for 15 years and it still works as good as the day I bought it.
I leave mine attached to my counter at all times and everyone who comes over always comments on it.
Not only is it a statement piece in your kitchen, its also the centerpiece of one of the most unique and memorable dinner parties. Read more about my pasta night dinner party here.
It always makes the perfect gift. From weddings to birthdays, everyone is always excited to receive this.
I got this FoodSaver about 6 months ago and it is a real game changer. You use it with zip top bags that have a round valve on the side and it vacuum seals the bag, extending the life of the contents. I use this with everything from meats and cheeses to crackers, bread, and even fruit.
At the low price of just $25, this handheld FoodSaver will pay for itself in no time.
This meat tenderizer is definitely one of my favorite useful kitchen gadgets. It can turn even the toughest steak to butter.
We’ve used it on chicken, steaks, and fajitas. It makes your fajitas as tender as anything you will ever get in a restaurant.
This is tool is completely genius! Such a simple design yet so incredibly effective. No more chunky ground meat. This chopper makes sure that the meat is broken up into perfectly small pieces. At only $5, no kitchen should be without one.
This adjustable three-tier spice rack is the perfect thing to keep all your favorite spices and seasonings within arms reach.
I have this right by my stove with all of my favorite and most used spices and seasonings.
This Electric Wine Opener is so incredibly easy to use. And at $20 everyone should be using one of these to open their bottle of vino.
These Bamboo Drawer Dividers can turn those large kitchen “junk drawers” into the epitome of organization. We have a large shallow drawer under our microwave that we called our “junk drawer” because no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t keep it organized.
I ordered a pack of these a few years ago and it has been organized ever since.
This adjustable rolling pin is another one of those designs that is so simple its genius. Use it to make the perfectly leveled sugar cookie. No more lopsided cookies, It comes with 3 different rings, allowing you to choose the perfect thickness.
For years I made lopsided sugar cookies at Christmas. And while they were always delicious they just never looked as uniform as I wanted.
I bought this after seeing it on Instagram. It totally changed my cookie game. Now they all look uniform and cook evenly.
This is one of those things that you never knew you needed until you have it. And then you never want to live without it.
No more wrestling with your wrappings. This dispenser cuts them perfectly for you every time.
This Ziploc Bag Organizer is the perfect way to store your Ziplocs. No more ratty boxes in the drawer that get caught on the counter when you open the drawer. This does a great job of keeping everything neat and tidy and right where it goes.
This Olive Oil Bottle and Brush is perfect for adding oil to a pan before you sauté something. It’s also great for adding oil to pasta, salad, and hour d’evores.
This Electric Slicer/Shredder will make quick work of any slicing and shredding you need to do. Perfect for potato gratin and potato latkes.
This Soft Serve Dessert Maker can turn any frozen fruit into creamy ice cream or sorbet. It’s great for health conscience people who what their ice cream without the milk base.
This is also a super fun thing to do with kids in the kitchen. They will delight at the sight of their frozen fruit turning into a thick delicious ice cream.
These are some of my favorite useful kitchen gadgets. Whether you are buying for yourself or as a gift for someone else, you can’t go wrong with any of them.
