Everyone loves a good home-cooked meal. Except not everyone wants to spend hours in the kitchen cooking and cleaning. Makes sense.
We’re here to make the experience a bit more…enjoyable. Aka we’re bringing you tools that’ll get the job done and make kitchen time a bit more fun. Imagine that.

For when you wanna steam veggies, fry bacon, and strain pasta…
Use one tool. That can do it all. Made from silicone, this heat-safe pot insert can be used as a colander, trivet, splatter screen, and steaming basket. It’ll collapse when you need to store it. So yes, you can actually keep it in a drawer. Magic. ($39.95+, Food52)
For when you’re tired of watching your strawberries get soft after four days…
Try a new container. These trap and absorb ethylene gas, so they keep your produce from spoiling. That’s right. Lettuce won’t wilt. Blueberries won’t mush. BTW, the carbon filter lasts 90 days and refills can be purchased in packs. ($9.99+, The Container Store)
For when you’ve spent way too much time trying to finely dice an onion…
Put the knife down. This tool can chop, slice, and grate. It’s got eight different blades, a safety holder, a cleaning fork, and a collection bin so your cut ingredients won’t be all over your countertop. Sigh of relief sold separately. ($29.97, Amazon)
