Oven gloves that are connected by organic cotton fabric with a texture to help you get a good grip and not spill the hot dish you’re carrying.
A silicone drain cover great for anyone who does not have a disposal and wants a simple way to stop food from going down the drain. This suctions to the sink and can easily be removed to throw the food scraps away.

A corn butter knife – everyone who sees it will be all ~ears~ to hear where you got it, because they’ll want one themselves. Yeah, that’s right, you’ll say, “I never have to struggle spreading butter on my corn again.”

A flip top you attach to your bottles to make sure you get EVERY. LAST. DROP. There’s really nothing as satisfying as using up all of your condiments.
An automatic pot-stirrer that’ll basically be your sous-chef when you don’t have any help in the kitchen as it keeps whatever you’re cooking stirred while you focus on whatever else the recipe calls for.
A Whisk Wiper Pro because while licking the entire whisk *sounds* like a good idea, this little tool will *actually* get it clean way easier than just sticking it in the water and hoping for the best.
A three-pack of nonstick oven liners you can cut to fit your oven or grill to protect it from getting covered in the goo and gunk that spills out of whatever you’re cooking. Just pull the liner out (when the oven isn’t hot anymore) and wash it in the sink for a fuss-free way to keep your oven clean.
