A sink caddy

Keep your favorite scrubbing tools handy — without letting them sit in their own filth. This caddy has a handy drip tray (with a built-in spout!) you can empty out every so often.<br /><br /><strong>Promising review:</strong> "I love all <a href="https://www.amazon.com/stores/node/2598021011?_encoding=UTF8&field-lbr_brands_browse-bin=OXO&ref_=bl_dp_s_web_2598021011" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">OXO products</a> and am also happy with this purchase. I place my dish sponges in this and there is enough room for a brush as well. I like also the vent insert which keeps the sponges separate. The compartment at the bottom is a great idea in the design to allow for emptying water rather than letting it pool at the bottom. It is a separate compartment which is of clear plastic and allows you to visibly see if it needs emptying. Great product.

An ethylene gas-absorbing apple

A roll of bamboo paper towels

You can toss these in the washing machine and reuse them over *120 times*. They're super-absorbent and durable, but are soft enough to use on your skin, too. You can even use them on your Swiffer! One roll of these will tackle a number of messes equivalent to 60 ROLLS of conventional paper towels.<br /><br /><strong>Promising review:</strong> "I've had these bamboo towels for a month now and am incredibly impressed with their performance! They're much larger than a regular paper towel, thicker, softer and more absorbent. I've washed the first ones I've torn off the roll several times now and they DO survive the laundry and perform just as well afterward. <strong>I've only used five bamboo towels this month, washed them and re-used. Several times. I would have been through a whole roll of Brawny by now.</strong> One caveat...when you wash them, you're supposed to air dry them, so I haven't sent any through the dryer. And I haven't needed to, because allowing them to air dry has not affected the quality of the towels when I 're-roll' them!" — <a href="https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KWBSDYC?tag=huffpost-bfsyndication-20&ascsubtag=5883859%2C5%2C54%2Cd%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C962%3A1%3B901%3A2%3B900%3A2%3B974%3A3%3B975%3A2%3B982%3A2%2C16464286%2C0" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">A.

I no longer have to stand near the stove to watch for the boil-over point, I can do other things or get distracted while this marvelous invention takes care of whatever I am simmering or boiling. It is a great value, you get two of them and I gave one to my son who cooks. It is also easy to clean, you can pop the yellow flower off for easier cleaning." — Hey Mom

An 8-quart programmable slow-cooker

You deserve a set-it-and-forget-it dinner after a long day — just set this gadget to cook anywhere from 30 minutes to 18 hours. The digital timer displays how long is left, which is perfect for any impatient kiddos who want to know when dinner will be ready. Aaaaand the crock and lid are both dishwasher-safe!<br /><br /><strong>Promising review:</strong> "I've been using a slow cooker for years but needed a new one quickly so I could drop off a dish for an event. Grabbed this one and never looked back. Actually got one of these for my mom as a gift, too. It's easy to set, cooks evenly and is easy to clean and to transport. <strong>I have a much more expensive slow cooker and I can't tell a bit of difference in the final product; roasts, soups, any variation of chicken.</strong> Now the real question is how long will one of these last when compared to the pricey brands...I guess we'll find out eventually but, for now, I think this is an amazing deal." — <a href="https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071HR78XL?tag=huffpost-bfsyndication-20&ascsubtag=5883859%2C13%2C54%2Cd%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C962%3A1%3B901%3A2%3B900%3A2%3B974%3A3%3B975%3A2%3B982%3A2%2C16464313%2C0" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Karri</a><br /><strong><br />Get it from Amazon for <a href="https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071HR78XL?tag=huffpost-bfsyndication-20&ascsubtag=5883859%2C13%2C54%2Cd%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C962%3A1%3B901%3A2%3B900%3A2%3B974%3A3%3B975%3A2%3B982%3A2%2C16464313%2C0" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">$49.99</a>.</strong>

Some cheese storage paper

This is guaranteed to keep your cheddar sharp, your Parmesan poppin', and your Brie better. The paper breathes just the right amount, maintaining the perfect humidity and mimicking the environment that cheese is aged in.<br /><br /><strong>Promising review:</strong> "Before I bought this cheese paper I would do the cheese search in the refrigerator. After buying cheeses, opening them, and then rewrapping them in heaven knows what (namely plastic wrap, aluminum foil, and plastic containers), it was always the same result: moldy cheese. This box contains the paper in sheets plus some stickers that you can write on with the name of the cheese and the date it was wrapped or even sell by date. There are also pictures of a sheep, cow, and goat so the source can be identified by circling or checking one of them!

A pack of sound-dampening bumpers

Stick these right on noisy cabinets to keep you from being jarred awake with the BANG that indicates someone else's late-night or early-morning bowl of cereal. <br /><br /><strong>Promising review:</strong> "Funny enough, but <strong>this is one of my favorite low-cost upgrades to the house</strong>. Our previous dampers were a cloth that came with the cabinets and were getting a bit thin. Thought I would try and upgrade to save on the stress of the hickory doors. Wow was I surprised of the difference of a good bumper. <strong>These stick on very strong, but don't ruin the wood if removed.</strong> They have a beautiful but solid thud that is not loud, but also don't bounce the door or drawer back at you which others might do.

An under-the-sink water filtration system

You can kiss your Brita pitcher goodbye and pour a glass of the good stuff straight from the tap. This has a two-step filter that removes 99.99% of contaminants, and it comes with direct connect hoses to hook right up to the standard 3/8" valves in U.S. kitchen sinks. <strong>It's designed to be installed in under three minutes.<br /></strong><br /><strong>Promising review:</strong> "We have town water and it seems they are putting more and more chlorine in it every year. We should be getting used to it and tasting it less and less, not more! The refrigerator filters are super expensive and weren't cutting it. Every time I put a glass to my mouth it smelled like a swimming pool. I searched the internet and decided to give this a try due to the positive reviews and affordability. Wow! easy install (I'm an avid DIYer). And the taste! <strong>The chorine taste is just gone! No more overpriced fridge filters for us.</strong> I love that the filter replacement procedure is basically the same as a fridge. Just twist and remove. We love it so much I teed off the fridge line and put a dispenser at our sink as well. <strong>The flow on this thing is just amazing! And the water tastes great! Don't waste your money on the expensive, complicated ones.</strong> My parents have a three-chambered, name brand filter at their house. It was expensive, the replacement filters are expensive, it is a pain in the petunias to replace the filters, and the flow rate is pathetic!

A set of motion-sensing strip lights

You can install these under your cabinets to make your kitchen look more expensive and also brighten dark pantries! They go on when you get within three meters (almost 10 feet) and turn off 15 seconds after you walk out of range. And they just stick right on — how easy is that?<br /><br /><strong>Promising review:</strong> "One of the smartest things that I've purchased in a while. <strong>Just peel off the double-sided tape cover and stick the magnet wherever you need light.</strong> The light is metal so it clings to the magnet that you just stuck to the wall, ceiling, wherever — it's super easy to change the batteries. Motion-sensing so you don't have to touch them — just be there. Also, they are light-sensitive so that you don't waste battery power if there is enough light anyway. I like to use rechargeable batteries so that I don't have to buy batteries all the time. They are bright enough for a regular closet or under a kitchen cabinet and the lights are LED so they are energy-efficient. I just bought a couple more 3-packs for seasonal gifts.

A stylish acrylic block and set of sleek black knives

A four-pack of durable cutting boards

You can bend the boards into a funnel shape to easily add ingredients to whatever you're cooking. And they have a textured back so they won't slip and slide while you're chopping.

You can bend the boards into a funnel shape to easily add ingredients to whatever you're cooking. And they have a textured back so they won't slip and slide while you're chopping. Plus, they're color-coded and individually labelled so you won't cross-contaminate in the kitchen: red for meat, green for vegetables, blue for fish, and yellow for fruit.

Or a an airtight cold brew maker

You can get your ice-cold caffeine fix immediately upon waking up. Waiting in that Starbucks line before even having your coffee? No, thank you! <br /><br /><strong>Promising review:</strong> "I was wasting money every single morning at Starbucks on coffee I didn't even like until the Takeya came into my life. <strong>I went from spending $90 to $100 on coffee a month to under $10.</strong> This is how I make my coffee: I fill up the tube about three quarters of the way full of coffee grounds (so it's extra concentrated) on Saturday night. On Monday morning I remove the coffee grounds and pour three parts coffee and one part cold water over ice in my to go cup with a splash of coconut milk. Adding the water to it makes it so I can make five cups of coffee — good for one every morning for the entire work week. That way I don't have to worry about running out since it takes about 36 hours to make. It's that easy!

Rubbermaid FreshWorks storage containers

These containers are made with venting technology to keep produce fresh for up to 80% longer. The vents regulate the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide and keep moisture away so your strawberries taste freshly picked days and days and days later. <br /><br /><strong>Promising review:</strong> "I read the reviews and thought I’d give these a try since they here easily half the price of the other ones I looked at that had to have the charcoal filters replaced periodically. These need no filter changes and oh-my-gosh, they work! I went on a 10 day trip to visit my mom and left my husband home with asparagus, strawberries, and spinach in the containers. He ate some of all of them, but there was plenty left when I got back and they were in perfect condition! I couldn’t believe it! <strong>These will save us a lot of money not throwing away food because we couldn’t get through it fast enough.
