1. Expandable Pot and Pan Organizers Rack
Never dig through a cabinet to find the right pan again. This rack has 10 adjustable compartments to hold pans, pots, lids and baking sheets of all sizes without having to pile them on top of each other. PureWow editor Abby Hepworth says it makes keeping her kitchen organized has never been easier.

Blend fruits and veggies like a pro with this 1,200-watt pulverizer. It’s breaks up stalks, seeds and pulp like nobody’s business in order to release as many nutrients as possible into your sauce, smoothie, hummus, soup or juice. Even better, it comes with a resealable portable lid that you can use to take your snack on the go.
3. Fullstar Vegetable Chopper
This multipurpose chopper is a jack of all trades. It includes seven clip-on inserts that peel, cut, spiralize, juice and beyond. You won’t even need to dirty a cutting board to use it: The mess-free catch tray stores all your handiwork. It’s especially helpful with onions, if you’re a crier.
4. JinaMart Stackable Wine Storage Rack
Chilling one bottle at a time to save fridge space? In 2020? We think not, thanks to these stackable wine racks. They’re made of shatter-resistant plastic and sleek enough that you’ll want one set to keep white wine cold in the fridge and another to display your favorite reds on the counter.
5. Instant Pot Duo Crisp 11-in-1 Pressure Cooker
If you’ve been toying with buying a slow cooker, pressure cooker or air fryer (or um, all of them), this multipurpose appliance has you covered on all three fronts. This powerhouse can steam, sauté, sous vide, slow cook, air fry, roast, bake, broil, heat *and* dehydrate just about anything your heart desires, and in record time to boot.
6. Alpha Awards Precision Cutting Board
Want to learn to dice, batonnet, julienne and mince like a real chef? This durable bamboo cutting board can help. Use the laser-engraved guides to train your hand and before you know it, you won’t even need them.
7. Greenco Fridge Bins
This six-piece set makes keeping your fridge tidy a breeze. The two wide bins are great for bulky fruits and vegetables, as well as meat and fish. The two narrow bins are solid for condiments, juice boxes, yogurts and smaller items. There’s also a drink holder that’s just the right size for stacking standard soda cans, while the egg holder is prime for…well, eggs. Trust us, the wilted veggies currently being crushed in your refrigerator will thank you.
8. Farberware 22-Piece High-Carbon Stainless Steel Cutlery Set
This set has more than 4,500 rave ratings on Amazon for a reason. The knives boast micro-serrations that help them slice through ingredients like butter, plus nonslip, triple-riveted handles that make them easy to control. Best part? According to Farberware, the blades never need to be sharpened. We love this set for first-time renters or homeowners, because it also comes with spatulas, measuring spoons and kitchen shears.
9. SimpleHouseware Stackable Can Rack Organizer
If your pantry looks like a bomb went off in it, we have just the fix. Store up to 36 cans on this easy-to-assemble rack. It comes complete with six adjustable plastic dividers, so you can store everything from jumbo cans of baked beans to tiny cans of tomato paste. The biggest perk in our book is that the rack makes the cans easy to see, unlike when they’re hiding behind each other in the cupboard.
10. PowerLix Milk Frother
You only think you need a fancy espresso machine to whip up steamed milk at home. Want the truth? This handheld milk frother can take you from zero to latte in mere seconds. It aerates the milk, creating lots of fluffy foam just like your favorite barista does. Did we mention it’s available in 13 fun colors and barely takes up any space, since it’s stored vertically on a countertop stand?
12. Homgeek Countertop Blender
Most blenders that can make smoothies, juice, nut butter, hot soup, homemade pesto and more cost a few hundred dollars, making this model a total steal. Fruits and veggies don’t stand a chance against the three-layer stainless steel blades, and the tamper ensures every bit gets blended to smithereens.
13. Comfify Store Ceramic Utensil Holder and Tablet Stand
The only thing more annoying than looking down at your tablet every two seconds while cooking? Finding the back of your tablet soaking wet with who knows what after an hour on the kitchen counter. This multipurpose stand solves both problems, as it keeps your tablet (or cookbook!) far from the messy countertop and within your line of vision. The caddy for utensils is just a bonus.
14. Swededishcloths Reusable Cleaning Cloths
Can you believe each cloth replaces up to 17 rolls of paper towels *and* can be cleaned in the dishwasher up to 200 times? Use them to dry dishes, wipe counters and quickly take care of spills. Most importantly, the cloths stay odor- and bacteria-free, since they dry so quickly. PureWow senior editor Alexia Dellner can vouch for these compostable cuties big time.
15. O3Waterworks Sanitizing Spray Bottle
Speaking of cleaning, there’s no better time to buy this brilliant invention than right now. The bottle transforms ordinary water into an aqueous ozone, a powerful cleaning agent that kills 99.9 percent of pathogens and bacteria. Don’t worry about etching or damaging your kitchen counters—it’s way less harsh than chemical-filled cleaners.
