Best Kitchen Gadgets On Amazon

Amazon has some great deals on kitchen gadgets you'll actually use!


I'm not much of a gadget person. As a minimalist, having all these kitchen gadgets lying around just stresses me out! Why would I want to clutter my home with things I'll only use once a year, right? That's my thought process anyway. However, these gadgets truly are useful! Here's my roundup of the best kitchen gadgets found on Amazon plus some of the best recipes I've created using them.

These kitchen gadgets are helpful and come with recipes

Citrus juicer - My mom brought me this shortly after we bought our home in Dallas, and I rolled my eyes. I thought, "mom, I'm never going to use this! It's just going to clutter my kitchen. I can easily juice a lemon or lime with my own hands." LIES! I use this thing several times a week. It's actually my most used kitchen gadget, after our fancy knife set. Here's a great pasta salad that's chock full of zesty citrus - you'll be glad you have this juicer!


Grill starter - This isn't really a kitchen gadget, but it is used to make food, so same difference. Have you ever tried to start a charcoal grill without one? Yeah, you end up using a ton of starter fluid. And then you cook your food on that. Gross! This thing works brilliantly. Pour the coals in, light it, wait 25ish minutes and boom. Perfect grilling coals. This grilled chicken marinade is perfect all summer long, and pairs so well with the taste of a charcoal grill.


Crock-Pot - This one is a no-brainer. Every home needs one of these in it! It's perfect for making soups and stews, roasts, hell I've even seen recipes for cakes in this thing! I really recommend the one I linked, because it's programmable with a timer, and it also has a locking lid so that 1) you can carry it to potlucks, etc and 2) that means you can lock the lid on it when you store it, and you won't spend 20 minutes of your life digging through your cabinets. Did you know how easy it is to make your own "condensed" soups in a Crock Pot? Here's a fantastic cream of mushroom soup recipe that beats the heck out of a can of Campbell's.


Knife set - Speaking of knife sets, this one is my favorite. Yeah, it's not cheap, good knifes aren't. These come sharp and stay sharp for years! Once you've work with good knives, you just can't go back to dull ones. Invest in a decent set of knives and you'll have fewer cuts and shorter meal prep time. You'll be happy you have sharp knives to make this no mayo potato salad, perfect for summer cookouts!


These are some of the most used kitchen gadgets I own. Like I said, I'm not a gadget gal, and like to keep things simple, but these devices are the best kitchen gadgets on Amazon! They're competitively priced, and ship free with Prime. If you're in Dallas, you can even get them with same day delivery, which is more than awesome.

  1. Definitely need that citrus press - I can't stand getting citrus juice on my hands, and you can never squeeze everything out with your own two hands.
