6 Useful Kitchen Gadgets That Actually Work

I love a good kitchen gadget if it makes a task easier or more manageable than doing it the way it's been done before. These are some of my all time favorites. As far as I know, all of them can be found on Amazon.

6 Useful Kitchen Gadgets That Work

1. Jokari Hands-Free Baggy Rack Clip Food Storage Bag Holder

I do a lot of freezer cooking and meal prep, and this thing has been such a help. Whenever I had to previously pour liquids or put food into plastic bags, I used to use this oversized mug to try to keep the bags upright so I could fill them by myself, but with this thing, obviously, it keeps the bag upright for you and unlike the mug, it allows the bag to sit fully expanded so you can just fill until its full, then zip your bag and store. Love mine.

2. Jokari Snap-On Can Strainer

I've seen other can strainers before, but none with a snap on lid that fits onto multiple can sizes. Now if you have that can of corn or green beans, or tuna, you can snap this into place on the can, flip it over, and just let it drain without having to use a big old colander or put your hand on top to try to prevent stuff from falling out into the sink. It's so simple, and does the job.

3. Prepworks by Progressive Dice and Slice Chopper

If you hate sniffling and crying while chopping onions, this is the one for you. I was so skeptical when I first saw this because I had a similar gadget years ago where you were supposed to throw the onion in this glass container and just repeatedly slam down on this set of blades in the chopper and your onion would chop, except all I ever got were irregular pieces and mush at the end so I really vowed to just do it by hand or if anything, use a food processor. This gadget however, totally changed my mind on that. Just as pictured, put the onion, strawberry, egg, potato, bell pepper, whatever between the blades of which you have three slicing options, and then slam down ONCE and in one swoop, it cuts the whole thing straight into the see through container. It's one of those things where you do it once, and you're like woah, I want to just keep slicing away at everything now because it's so easy, lol! Plus, if you only need a little, just put the whole box in the fridge until a later time that you need them.

4. Oven Liner Heavy Duty by Bellemain (for Electric, Gas and Microwave Ovens up to 30")

Four beautiful words: "no more oven spills." Which means, no more intense oven clean up. These oven liners are great at catching all those annoying crumbs, and drips, and drops from the things you put in the oven or microwave. No more wasting foil used as lining, or having to scrape burnt bits off the bottom of the oven anymore.

5. Pancake Batter Dispenser by KPKitchen

If you've ever had to do a big batch of cupcakes, or pancakes, or any liquid style batter...the pain of getting the stuff evenly distributed and without messing about the place, is real. This is just a marvelous dispenser that allows you to control where the liquid goes and avoid messes. There are variations of this like ones in squeeze bottle form, but I find this one to give the most control.

6. iTouchless Bag Re-Sealer

Chip clips are good, but they sometimes pop off or don't hold. Why not just actually reseal the bag you ate 10 chips from, so you can have them be fresh for later.

  • #4 Why not just use a cookie sheet? That's pretty much what it looks like anyway.

    #3 But is it worth the cleanup? I have a food processor that I think is only worth the cleanup if I'm doing large amounts - which means I almost never use it.

    By the way. Do you know of a spatter screen that actually works?
