30 Best Amazon Kitchen Gadgets

Updated: Jul 27, 2020

Spending more time at home during the pandemic has me doing all sorts of new projects, anyone else?! I rounded up some of my favorite cheap kitchen gadgets from Amazon — most are under $20.

These are fun, easy to clean, and good for the environment! You can use them for cupcakes, muffins, or even mini cheesecake cups.


I’m not embarrassed to admit that I have been that girl eating cereal out of a tupperware container on my way to my 8 am classes in college 🙋 My roommate who walked with me on the other hand… was embarrassed haha. I’m 100% buying this for work now though. This would be a great gift for any college kid or early morning worker!


I’m a sucker for anything that changes color when the temperature changes 😂 I’m a little kid at heart I guess. These are a must have for your children, pool days, or fun *adult* beverages.


A college girls BFF, let me tell ya. When I got my first set of wine glasses as an adult, Blake (my boyfriend) broke one before I ever got to use it! Save yourself a *disagreement* and get your girl some acrylic wine glasses.


This is the #1 most requested product I get from friends & family. And for good reason! Gone are the days where I throw creamer in a crappy cup of coffee, wishing it was starbucks. I’ve turned into a full on barista in the mornings — ½ c frothed warm unsweetened almond milk, 1 T white chocolate mocha starbucks creamer, and keurig columbian roast coffee = heavenly.


A must have for every kitchen, great as a gift for a wedding registry or college kids. Very sharp and won’t break the bank!

My parents had got these for my siblings and I when we were kids (waaay before Amazon was a thing — how the heck did they even find stuff like this back then?!). They were so fun to pull out at birthday parties, sleepovers, or for a special weekend celebration. As soon as I saw them I knew they had to make this list because they immediately brought me back to my childhood. Thanks mom & dad!


I originally found these after using them while I was a bartender. I thought it was so smart, because we often had half bottles of wine left over at the end of the night that would spoil if left without being re-sealed. They make a great gift for wine drinkers — I got some for both my parents and my boyfriend's parents.


I bought this for my boyfriend for Christmas because he eats more eggs than a chicken lays and he loves it! It saves so much time when hard boiling eggs and takes the guessing out of boiling them in a pot. 10/10 recommend.

Double Decker: $23.99 + Free Prime Shipping

*this is the one we have, it makes 12 eggs, best bang for your buck


I’ll admit it, I am guilty of using too many plastic baggies. But not anymore! You better believe these will get their full use at my house.


I know that I am not the only one who HATES cleaning the oven. I swear no matter how long I spend scrubbing that thing, it will never be clean. These are not a want, they are a NEED.


I got influenced by this by someone I follow online and am so glad I got it! You’ll be grossly satisfied by all the GUNK that fills up at the bottom of the drip dish, but it’ll make you happy that you have a drain so that it’s not all building up like your old container.


I’ve never bought anything useful off of Shark Tank but this has to be one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen! When I was a kid my family used to take long road trips (I’m talking like 18 hours long), which meant we stopped and had food on the go a lot. All I’m saying is that my parents' car would have had x5 less stains on the seat if we had these bad boys.


Have you ever read the horror stories of someone trying to remove a pit from an avocado with a knife? Not cool. Save your palms some pain and check out this nifty little tool.


I’m a sucker for anything with a food pun on it. Nuff. Said.


This is great for fridge, cupboards, and pantry organization. I use it for our cans in our pantry but I know a lot of people who use them for spices and condiments too.

We all know the global initiative to reduce ocean pollution by switching to non-plastic, reusable straws If you haven’t jumped on the train yet, now is the time. These will fit in your yeti tumblers & water bottles, are safe for children, are dishwasher safe, and are bendable.


Toss out the parchment paper and aluminum foil, these silicone non-stick baking mats are environmentally friendly and easy to clean 😊


I got these to put in our pantry to better store our dry goods! Protein powders, oatmeal, spaghetti, powder electrolytes, sugar, etc. Not only do they make them more easily accessible but they also give our pantry a clean look.


Bye bye crowded cupboards. Ditch the multiple lids because this bad boy is a one-size-fits-all. Whoever thought of this is a GENIUS + it’s a great bang for your buck.


Gone are the days where we have to struggle with opening jars and bottles without our men around to help us out 😂 Cue the “I’m a single independent woman who doesn’t need no man” attitude!! This bad boy has 3 sets of steel jaws to twist open any bottle or jar that's twisted on just a little too tight.


The perfect summer activity for the family or treat for barbeques! Check out this hydration popsicle blog I helped with, using my favorite electrolyte blend.


These were one of the first kitchen items I purchased for myself as an adult… and I’ve bought 3 more sets since as gifts or for myself. They are silicone, non-stick, and BPA free!


Fresh food + helping the environment? Sign me up! These were on my most recent Amazon order and I love them. I will not be buying any more aluminum foil or cling wrap, that's for sure!


Everyone needs a good set of tupperware — college aged and up! My favorite in this stack are the small ones because they are so convenient for dressings and dips when I pack my lunches. Comes with literally everything you need, 21 different containers!


We don’t have much countertop space in our current house so we got this drying rack to give us more space when we’re meal prepping or making many things at one time. Plus it can double as a drying rack for dishes, a place to wash fruits and vegetables, or a cookie cooling rack.


This set is perfect for new couples who moved into their first home, a college kid who got their first apartment, or anyone looking for a starter kit!

Nothing is worse than chunky herbs, these sheers will make the job much easier. A game changer for the fresh cilantro I put into my homemade guacamole!


Clip, pour, & done. It’s that simple.


My boss got one of these as a gift and insisted that I try it out! Definitely keeps your drink hot throughout the morning.
