A rotating oven that’ll produce a pizza that tastes so good your roommates might think you’ve been adopted by a Sicilian grandmother — until you put pineapples on it.
A garlic twist to create the perfect mince without leaving your hands smelling like you murdered a vampire. It’s a way better solution than just haphazardly waving a bottle of garlic powder over your food, which is what I usually do.
Smoked bacon chipotle sea salt you can use to seriously step up your seasonings. With the wonderful medley of flavors in this sea salt, your roommates will think you’ve suddenly become a top-tier spice blender.
A stunning embossed rolling pin so you can get artsy and maybe a little craftsy as well with your homemade cookies.
A fun pancake mold so you can do something similar for the teeny tiny “roommate” in your life. A plate full of edible dinosaurs and rocket ships is sure to impress your little ones, and it’d certainly be a step up from the misshapen “circular” pancakes you usually serve them.
And a pancake mixer bottle that’ll allow you to mix, pour and fry your pancakes as fast as possible. This is perfect for people who live in households with many mouths to feed.
Annnddd some locally made syrup to smother those bad boys in once they’re fresh off the stove. It’s from a woman-owned shop based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and made of all-natural lavender flowers and unrefined raw cane sugar.
A compact air fryer that’ll convince anyone who’s unfamiliar with this trend that you’re a straight up sorcerer who cooks with the power of witchcraft — I mean, how else would you explain producing a Popeye’s-level crunch to your fried chicken without the use of oil?
Meat shredders for when you want to make your protein for the night a bit more interesting. If you haven’t tried pulled chicken, turkey or pork, you don’t know what you’re missing!
A 48-needle meat tenderizer that allows you to create “heat channels” in your meat, thus reducing your cooking time by about 40%. This is perfect for busy cooks who want to whip up quick meals without resorting to frozen TV dinners (do people even call them that anymore?).
An Always Pan, which, besides having an incredibly sleek and aesthetically pleasing design, is the perfect pan for people in search of versatile cookware. It has a nonstick surface and vented top for sautéing, a mesh basket for steaming, and a high-quality spoon that hooks onto the handle.
Or a Lodge cast-iron skillet pre-seasoned with 100% vegetable oil, so you don’t have to worry about synthetic coatings or chemicals getting into your food. It can go straight from the stovetop into the oven, making it an equally versatile piece of cookware.
A handheld veggie slicer so you can stop wasting money on prepackaged zoodles at the grocery store. It’s also more compact than a spiralizer, so it’s better for people with limited storage space in the kitchen.
An electric egg cooker so simple you’ll feel like it cooked your breakfast for you. It can make hard-boiled eggs, soft-boiled eggs, poached eggs, scrambled eggs, and even individual omelets.
Or a sandwich maker that will LITERALLY cook your breakfast for you. If this sounds too good to be true, you’re not alone. Reviewers were skeptical at first too until this inexpensive thing turned them into magicians in the kitchen!
A silicone whisk that’s not only strong enough to mix things like eggs and batter, but can also break down ground meat as well.
A tiny, two-stage knife sharpener to repair and restore your knives just as quickly an easily as it appears in this GIF. Anyone who walks in the kitchen and sees your sharpening your steel as you prepare to go to war with a batch of potatoes will know you mean business.
A nonstick Bundt pan guaranteed to produce cakes that are as perfectly circular as pie — that’s a math joke!
DIY cocktail (or mocktail!) kits if you and your roommates are still inside and sorely miss the days of a professional bartender taking care of all your boozy (or virgin!) wants and needs.
A super straightforward waffle maker that’d allow you to make a 5-star breakfast with minimal hassle. You’d actually have to try very hard to NOT make a perfect waffle in this thing.
An Instant Pot so your roommates will think you’ve mastered multiple appliances (when in reality you’ve only pushed a few buttons). This thing is a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan, yogurt maker, and food warmer all in one.
A sous vide precision cooker, which slow cooks your meats to perfection even when they’re wrapped in plastic. The long and short of it is that it circulates water to the exact temperature needed to prepare certain meals. Think of it as a device that you can use to turn a pot into an air fryer — except there’s water!
A bottle of Mike’s Hot Honey that you might as well top every meal off with. It’s absurd how many things you can add this condiment to.
Last but not least, Pet Plate, which is a human-grade personalized meal plan for you pup. This is for anyone whose most important “roommate” is their four-legged ball of fur. All you have to do is answer a few questions about your dog, and Pet Plate tells you what foods would be best for them and you get to pick the flavors you think they’ll enjoy most.
