I am a bit of a nut when it comes to kitchen gadgets – having worked in housewares for 12 years, I LOVE finding a great kitchen deal! Gadgets should work well, help solve a kitchen problem – and if they are multi-taskers, then even better! Here are some bargains on must-have kitchen gadgets that really will ease some daily cooking and kitchen tasks. (Please note that Amazon links are affiliate links.

Oxo Good Grips Avocado Tool
To say that everyone is still obsessed with avocados may in fact be understating the fact! Avocados are a superfood, filled with nutrients and healthy fats. Plus, they taste incredible! But, they can be a little tricky to deal with – so this tool makes it easy to cut safely into the fruit, remove the pit AND slice it right in the skin. $11.97
Tovolo Collapsible Microwave Cover
A messy microwave is something you can avoid if you simply cover your food while cooking it! Instead of reaching for plastic wrap, try this Tovolo cover instead. This Tovolo cover is sturdy, yet collapsible, so it is easy to store while flattened. (Traditional microwave covers were so bulky that storage was a real issue!) The 10.5 inch size makes it awesome for covering most bowls and plates. Simply pop the cover over the plate before popping in the microwave, and prevent the worst splatters and messes. It’s also dishwasher safe, making it a breeze to clean up. $11.60
Silicone Frying pan handle cover
This handy silicone sleeve fits neatly over most standard frying pan handles. I find that this works especially well on my cast iron skillets – trust me, I have badly burnt myself on those before! If you have too, then you quite literally feel my pain. This heavy-duty cover also provides a better grip on the pan, and is oven safe to 475 degrees F or 250 degrees C. At $6.00, it’s worth getting a couple to have on hand when one is in the dishwasher.
Mason Jar Spoon Rest (NEW ON THE MARKET)
I’m a real sucker for a cute spoon rest.So, when I saw this pale blue Mason Jar ceramic spoon rest, I swooned a bit. (I swooned for a spoon? Sorry…sometimes I can’t help myself.) A spoon rest is exactly what it says – a dedicated spot to drop your spoon in between stirring whatever gorgeous food you’re creating. This handy gadget keeps your counter tops clean. And, when it looks as cute as this little fella – well, you won’t even mind keeping it out as a decorative piece. $16.99
Aerolatte Handheld Milk Frother
Can you say HOMEMADE LATTE? I knew you could! This handy little gadget creates great fluffy foam for your homemade lattes, cappuccinos and even gourmet hot chocolates. All I do is brew coffee extra strong in my coffee maker. Then, I heat up about 1/4-1/3 cup of milk in the microwave for about 30 seconds. (Your microwave times will vary, of course.) Then, use your Aerolatte to create gorgeous mounds of milk foam! Pour your coffee in over top, and sweeten and add a sprinkle of cinnamon to the top. Starbucks, eat your heart out. 🙂 This adorable Cow Print version is $25.13.
I hope you enjoyed today’s Amazon finds. If you’re a kitchen gadget freak like me, then maybe you discovered something new to add to your collection of kitchen must-haves. Okay, off to get more coffee!
