Serious home cooks looking for an all-encompassing knife set crafted by a highly respected brand won't do much better than this 14-piece stainless steel Henckels collection. It comes with 3- and 4-inch paring knives, a 5-inch serrated utility knife, 5-inch santoku knife, 8-inch bread knife, 8-inch chef's knife, six 4.5-inch steak knives and kitchen shears, as well as a sleek knife block for keeping everything stylishly contained. According to the brand, these blades never need sharpening!

"Amazingly sharp!" gushed a fan. "They cut everything from boned chicken to bread with ease. They sit on the counter beautifully as a showpiece and staple of my kitchen. The steak knives are great for medium steak — no effort required at all, they slide right through. Love these knives and would 100% buy again!"

These days, a single pan can cost as much as this entire 10-piece stainless steel set — and because it's from a well-regarded brand like Cuisinart, you know you're getting quality cookware. It comes with 1.5- and 2-quart saucepans, a 3-quart sauté pan, 8-quart stockpot, 8- and 10-inch skillets, a steamer insert and four glass lids to help trap in those flavorful juices. This collection isn't just gorgeous. It also conducts and retains heat like a pro, and is safe to use on all cooktops, as well as ovens up to 500° F. 

"The best set of cookware I have owned," shared a shopper. "It heats evenly and quickly. Dishes cook faster and at a lower temperature than my previous set of more expensive cookware did. ... I have cooked in a restaurant setting before and this has that level of quality to it."

If you'd prefer to go the nonstick route, this cool-colored beauty is just begging to be displayed in your kitchen. The ceramic coating is made without PFAS and PFOA, and you'll get 1- and 2-quart saucepans, a 3-quart sauté pan, 5-quart casserole, 8- and 9.5-inch frypans and lids. The contoured stainless steel handles give everything a luxe appearance, but don't be fooled by their elegant looks — these pieces are oven-safe up to an impressive 600° F!

One happy home cook called this set a "cooking game-changer," adding, "I hadn't replaced any of my pots or pans in years and had no idea how old and outdated they were. Since I've been using this, I've haven't had to scrape or spend hours soaking to get my pan clean. If you're on the go and want something that's going to save you cleanup time, this is your pan!"

This rainbow-hued knife set might look whimsical, but it means business. It comes with an 8-inch chef's knife, 8-inch slicing knife, 7-inch santoku knife, 5.5-inch serrated utility knife, 3.5-inch paring knife and blade guards for all. The stainless steel blades are encased in a nonstick ceramic coating to help keep food from sticking while you chop, and you'll get a manufacturer's lifetime warranty for peace of mind. 

"How can looking at knives be fun?" mused a reviewer. "I don’t know, but these great colors make me happy. [The] knives are lightweight but very sturdy and do their job."

Caffeine lovers, take note: If you want to enjoy barista-quality coffee and espresso beverages at home, this machine is what you want. Not only can it make drinks in five sizes with the push of a button, it also comes with a milk frother to give you that foamy drink experience in the comfort of your own kitchen. This set comes with 14 Nespresso capsules so you can start using it right away. 

"I love my Nespresso machine!" gushed a caffeinated customer. "I live in the country and the nearest coffee shop is 20 minutes away. This machine can make a great espresso and I use the frother for my latte. My husband used to drink drip coffee, but tried the Nespresso Colombia and can’t switch back to drip. 10 outta 10 recommend."

Whether you don't have the space for a large stand mixer, or would just rather not spend a ton of money on one, I'm here to tell you that most home baking tasks can be accomplished with an electric hand mixer. This one has beaters with a unique helix design, which provides more surface area for efficiency. Plus, it comes with two dough hooks for kneading bread, as well as a whisk attachment for whipping cream. Everything can be kept in the included storage case — so convenient!

"I am a big home baker, and my hand mixer finally died and [I] needed a new one," shared a reviewer. "This was a great choice. Love the coated beaters and the additional dough and whisk blades. Storage of everything is a great convenience and makes keeping everything together really easy. Got it and used it immediately. Absolutely meets all my baking needs, highly recommend!"

Save space on your counter with this nifty 2-in-1 appliance, which is nice and compact, yet roomy enough to fit six slices of bread or a 12-inch pizza. Now you'll be able to enjoy your favorite crispy foods with little to no oil, and without having to wait for your big oven to preheat. Oh, and the sleek stainless steel design isn't too shabby, either. 

"Having the air fryer and the toaster oven in one appliance is handy," wrote an impressed buyer. "The air fryer isn’t as loud as our previous air fryer. And the cleanup for this air fryer is easier. It’s a good-looking unit ... All in all, this appliance works well! Would definitely recommend it!"

Already have a toaster, but want to see what all the air fryer fuss is about? This compact appliance is ideal for smaller households (it holds two to three servings of food at a time) and can be used for more than cooking crispy foods with less oil. Its other functions include broil, roast, dehydrate, bake and reheat modes, and it uses top-down EvenCrisp technology to help ensure your food gets evenly golden.

"Love this air fryer," declared a reviewer. "Very easy, no-fail. Foods comes out perfect every time. Best part is you can pull out the bucket to check on your food as many times as you want; when you close it, the fryer continues with the time and temp where you left off and doesn’t lose heat like an oven would. The square design fits more product in one layer so less of a need to do multiple batches."

These are the very baking mats I use at home, and in my opinion, you can never have enough of them. Place 'em on your cookie sheets for baking or sheet trays for roasting vegetables, and they'll keep all of that residue from making your pans all crusty. Since they're made of silicone, they're easy to rinse off once you're done, and because they're reusable, they'll save you lots of money on parchment paper. 

"These mats are a great replacement for tin foil when baking cookies!" exclaimed an excited user.

I will keep buying Nordic Ware sheet pans until they stop making them; though they're so durable, it'll be a long time before I need to restock. My baked goods always come out evenly browned, and I've never experienced warping, thanks to their sturdy steel rims. Because they're made of aluminum, they're excellent heat conductors, but also cool very quickly once out of the oven. Plus, they won't rust! 

"I did research before buying these, and they were top-rated," wrote a content customer. "So far, I have been very happy. My cookies are coming out evenly baked and look so much better."
