The Ultimate Kitchen Gadget Edit

Gadgets for foodies — my favorite time-saving tools for cooking at home!

I am somewhat addicted to kitchen tools and utensils – I love buying things that are useful and will save me time! I rounded up some of my favorites, below. Whether you’re looking for a great gift for a foodie, or a time-saving tool that will make cooking at home way more enjoyable, this list should have you covered.

Wide Silicone Spatulas

Love this wide spatula for omelettes, pancakes, and pizza – anytime you need to really get some coverage on what you’re flipping or lifting.

Smeg Electric Kettle

The most adorable kettle that heats up super quickly and gets your water really hot. I keep mine out for afternoon tea.


Got to love something that saves a mess from happening! This is a cone-shaped guard that will surround your pan to keep grease splatter contained while cooking.

Angled Measuring Cup

A classic, and I can’t imagine using a regular measuring cup after having this! The angled look provides visibility and allows you to read the measurements from above. There is no bending down to check and adjust!

OXO Avocado Saver

Keep your cut avocado fresh for longer with these genius silicone cups that securely fit to each half of an avocado. I was skeptical until I tried it!

Wine Glasses

I got these last Christmas and have been really happy with them. They have a beautiful stem and are a nice size to hold several different varietals. The glass is slightly tapered which helps to capture the wine’s aroma.

Stainless Steel Butter Spreader

How great is this? I used to struggle so much to spread cold pads of butter on my toast!

Nonstick Muffin Pan

A fantastic non-stick baking mat, first developed in France in 1965. This is an investment, but works like a dream.

Rechargeable Lighter

These lighters are pretty enough to leave out! And I love that they rae rechargeable, so you don’t have to worry with refilling.

Box Grater

This box grater is a game-changer because it has this attachable container for catching, measuring and storing the food you’re grating.

Stovetop Kettle

A stainless steel gooseneck teapot with a beautifully functional design. We recently purchased this for pour-over coffee.

Immersion Blender

I would be remiss not to mention my immersion blender. I’m secretly lazy and don’t like pulling out huge equipment. This quickly blends ingredients – I mainly use it for soups.

Heavyweight Measuring Cups & Spoons

This glam measuring set is super functional with both American and metric measurement markings and heavy, flat bases.


A great microplane – my go-tos for grating are lemons and limes, hard cheeses, ginger or garlic, and more.

Watermelon Slicer

The watermelon tool is designed so that you can cut even, perfectly cube-shaped slices of watermelon by slicing into it. Pretty great!

Nesting Bowls

I’ve always loved these bowls from the brand Joseph Joseph. They save so much space by nesting 9 pieces into one – and are pretty to look at, too!

Pizza Cutter

If you like pizza as much as I do, a good heavy cutter at home is appreciated.

Minimalist Timer

A perfect modern Danish timer. I use Alexa, but would just leave this little beauty out to look at it!

Salad Spinner

This spinner has served me well for years to wash and dry lettuce. The basket can be used separately as a colander. In a pinch, the clear bowl can be used to mix and serve.

Nesting Prep Bowls

I love a good set of prep bowls and these from Japan are high on my list. They are heatproof for microwaving, and each contains a handy pour spout, too.

Grill Trays

One for prep work and one for serving. Each one has grooves, ready to catch any drippings, and they nest into each other.

Wine Bottle Insulator

I have shared this before but I am obsessed! This keeps wine and champagne chilled for hours. It’s stainless steel, double-walled, vacuum-insulated, and there is no condensation. Cheers!

If you all have any fantastic kitchen gadgets, please let me know!

Bon Appétit!
