The Wilton Cookie Dough Scooper is so easy to use that your kids can also join in the baking session and is a great way to reduce the mess and keep the fun. Just scoop the dough and squeeze the handle. This nifty little scooper will keep all your cookies the same shape and size.

We all know how much of a pain slicing meat and veggies with a dull kitchen knife can be. It can be a huge headache, especially when trying to make those very particular precision cuts. Instead of investing in a new knife set, try this knife sharpener to keep those dull blades razor-sharp and ready for anything. 

Longzon’s 4-in-1 Knife Sharpener has four different ways to sharpen your blades: coarse, medium, fine, and a scissor sharpener slot. Just insert the blade, pull it back, and watch that dull blade turn brand new. It also comes with cut-resistant gloves, so you can keep your focus on the sharpening.

“Such a game changer. Makes cooking prep so much easier, smoother, and faster. You don’t realize how important a good knife is until you start working with one.”

You probably don’t think twice about your pot strainer. It has one job and does it well, but did you know it could do even better? The Kitchen Gizmo Snap N Strain clips right onto the lip of any rounded pot, pan, or bowl and is so small it fits right in your drawer. Plus, the silicone material of the clips ensures the interior of your cookware will remain scratch-free. It’s as easy as snap, tip, and strain.

Joe S. | Senior Writer

“My sister bought me this for my birthday one year, and I was skeptical I’d ever use it. Did I really need another gizmo just for straining pasta? Turns out, yes. I love being able to just clip it on at a moment’s notice, without worrying about getting the huge colander out and cleaning it after.”

With no water hookup required, all you need is an outlet, and you can place your ice maker anywhere you want. 

Lindsey D. | Senior Account Manager

“Everyone is familiar with “the good ice,” and this countertop ice maker makes THE PERFECT nugget ice. It is a little pricey but saves us time and money since we were going to get “the good ice” on a weekly basis anyway! Doesn’t take up too much room and is quiet. If my house were on fire and my loved ones were safe, this is the item I would take with me.”
