1. 
ThermoPro TP17 Dual Probe Digital Cooking Meat Thermometer 

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2
Reviews: 4311

You can’t afford food poisoning. This handy meat thermometer has a 30″ long steel mesh cable so you can connect the thermometer to the base, outside of the oven. 

Just be careful: Use a potholder when you remove the steel thermometer end. It gets HOT.

Why I love it:

  • Versatility means this thermometer works for the oven, smoker, and stove-top.
  • Programmable alert with both USDA preset temperatures (or you can set the temperature manually).
  • Super accurate to within 1° (±1.8°F/1°C).

2. Dash Rapid Egg Cooker

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2
Reviews: 6,110

This egg cooker offers no-fail results. Just add water with the included measuring cup, put eggs in the egg holder, plug in, and in just a few minutes, you’ve got boiled eggs. Pretty egg-citing, right?

Why I love it:

  • Versatility means I can make 6 hard, medium, or soft boiled, poached, or scrambled eggs.
  • Accessories include a poaching tray, measuring cup, omelet tray, and 6 egg boiling tray.
  • Dishwasher safe so I can top-rack wash all non-electric parts.

3. Weston Burger Hamburger Press

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2
Reviews: 1,239

Stuffed burgers are pretty much my favorite. I also prefer uniform patties that don’t fall apart on the grill! This product is pretty much a no-brainer, especially with picky kids who expect perfectly round burgers. *shakes fist at Red Robin*

Why I love it:

  • Versatility means I can make stuffed burgers, crab cakes, and sausage patties.
  • Adjustable so I can make patties from 4-1/2 inches in diameter, and ¼ lb to ¾ lb patties up to 1-1/2 inches.
  • Quality construction made of heavy-duty cast aluminum.

4. Bento Hard-Boiled Egg Molds

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2
Reviews: 498

I’m an admitted bento and cute foods addict. If it has a face, I’ll eat it – and the same goes for hard-boiled eggs. These molds make a rabbit or bear face impression, but I’ve also seen everything from Hello Kitty to stars. Make sure you buy large or jumbo-sized eggs for the best results.

Why I love these:

  • It’s simple! Just put a hot, shelled, hard-boiled egg in the mold, close, and place into cold water for 10 minutes.
  • It’s easy to use. It measures 3 by 3 inches, just right for little hands.
  • It’s easy to clean. I’ve put mine in the top rack of my dishwasher, but you can hand wash these as well.

5. Farberware Food Huggers Reusable Silicone Food Savers

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2
Reviews: 420

I don’t know about you, but I like storing open cans and cut veggies without wasting plastic wrap. I also like how these food savers hug (aww, hugs) open jars (and even sliced lemons)! Plus, there are four per set, so you have a variety of sizes.

Why I love these:

  • Versatility means they fit perfectly on lemons, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, open cans, jars, and more.
  • Sizes include (1) 1.75-inch, (1) 2.25-inch, (1) 2.5-inch and (1) 3-inch.
  • Low-maintenance and no worry, since they’re dishwasher safe and BPA-free silicon.

6. Lodge LGP3 Rectangular Cast Iron Grill Press, Pre-Seasoned

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2
Reviews: 1,014

This. JUST THIS. If I had to marry a gadget, I’d probably say I Do to this press. Sound dramatic? This press helps sausages cook uniformly, burgers stay flat, and it helps keep chicken breasts uniform and flat.

Tip: Wrap the bottom surface of the press with aluminum foil and you’ll clean it much less often.

Why I love it:

  • Preseasoned with vegetable oil so it’s ready for immediate use.
  • User-friendly with a heavy-duty cast-iron base and “cool grip” spiral handle 
  • Cleans easily (hand wash only)
  • Easy to store at only 6-3/4 by 4-1/2 inches

7. BergKoch Grease Splatter Screen 

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Reviews: 1,153

Bacon grease ever land in your eyeball?  I present to you the grease splatter screen! Made from stainless steel and extra fine mesh to protect you from hot oil, it’s also rustproof, dishwasher safe, and easy to store.

Why I love it:

  • Versatile because the 13″ diameter means it fits most pots, skillets, and pans.
  • Multipurpose so you can also use it as a strainer, steamer, and a cooling rack.
  • Convenient since the plastic handle helps protect your hands from burns.

8. OXO Good Grips 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2
Reviews: 2,505

I never knew avocados required a special tool before I actually began eating them. That said, the price of this non-slip grip avocado slicer saves me a lot of frustration and money I would otherwise put into store-bought guacamole.

Why I love it:

  • Versatile since this all-in-one tool splits, pits, and slices avocados.
  • Simple because the stainless steel pitter removes the pit with one quick twist.
  • Easy to clean top-rack dishwasher safe.

9. Ground Meat Chopper

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Reviews: 283

Cooking chopped ground meat in the skillet is a mess. I don’t know about you, but when I use a spatula, I end up flipping my meat all over the place. Not okay. This gadget works great and is a team favorite!

Why I love it:

  • Versatility thanks to the 5 blade design which can chop and stir ground meat.
  • Even cooking due to evenly chopped foods distributed in the pan.
  • Quality nylon head is heat safe to 400 degrees and is safe to use on non-stick surfaces.

10. HIC Wavy Crinkle Cutting Tool 

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2
Reviews: 517

Tired of nicking your fingers on a mandolin? This crinkle cutter makes fun, healthy snacks, sliced salad toppings, or prepped stir-fry ingredients in a snap. We love this for slicing cheese!

Why I love it:

  • Versatility since this can chop veggies and egg salad, cut fruit, and make wavy edges on low-carb pasta.
  • Durable sharp steel blade is sturdy and long-lasting for effortless slicing.
  • Easy to clean in warm, soapy water for simple cleanup.

    The Weston Hamburger Press isn’t the same as the one pictured or described. The link takes me to a plastic one. (?)

    When I started Keto I became obsessed with weighing my food to track my carbs. I could not live without a food scale. I found one on Amazon and I highly recommend everyone buy one. I was amazed how much more I could eat by weighing out my food, since it’s hard to know what an ounce of this or a gram of that equals.

    After reading your post, I put the crinkle cutter in my Amazon cart…but then never got around to actually ordering. I’m glad I didn’t because I happened to spot one at a local garage sale for .25!
