In 2019, just about everything you can buy helps to make life easier and more fun, and kitchen tools are no exception. From the avocado slicer to the egg timer, your kitchen is about to become more efficient than ever before. This spring, try your hand at the kitchen tools you didn’t know you needed!

Avocado Slicer: Let’s face it, we’re living in the “avocado generation,” and we’re not mad about it… This insanely delicious fruit (yes, it’s a fruit) adds flair to breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so there’s nothing as useful as this all-purpose tool, which “splits, pits, and slices” your favorite green treasure. Easy and delicious, #blessed.

Tear-Free Onion Goggles: No, it’s not a miracle — believe it or not, onions don’t have to make you cry anymore. Slip on these comfortable goggles, which block out onion vapors, and chop, slice, and mince away!

Cheese Melting Pan: American, brie, Swiss, cheddar… Cheese is the life of any party. Now you can make the party even more exciting with a cheese melting pan (you know the one you’ve definitely seen on Instagram). Spread that melty goodness all over your favorite dishes.

Dunky Cup: Perfect for your kids (or your late-night snacking), the Dunky Cup makes enjoying delicious cookies easier than ever before. This mug-shaped gadget comes with sections to place cookies around a cup for milk. Chocolate chip, Oreos, Thin Mints, you name it — your cookies are now getting dunked in true style.

Norpro Egg Perfect Egg Time: Egg-citing, egg-straordinary, egg-cetera… This tool deserves all the puns. Have you ever dreamed of boiling your eggs exactly to your liking? This egg timer changes color to indicate when your eggs are soft, medium, or hard, so every breakfast tastes just the way you like it.

Jenaluca Herb Scissors: Tasty and nutritious, herbs really are the unsung heroes of just about every dish. Finally, with these magical scissors, the days of messy chopping and a difficult clean up are all gone. Go ahead and “herb your enthusiasm…” now you can throw as much basil and parsley as you want into tonight’s dinner.

Silicone Splatter Screen: Bacon? Incredible. Oil splatters while cooking bacon? Not so nice. The next time you cook something in a pot or a pan, this miraculous screen will save your face (and your sanity!) from splatters. With peace of mind while searing, pan-frying, grilling, etc., your best meals are yet to come.
