A picture hanging tool that’ll make every step of the process easier. Just line it up with your anchor points, make sure your pot on the wall is level, then use the points on the back to mark your spot. You ~nailed~ it!


Amazon

Get it from Amazon for $14.98.

Promising review: “Glad I waited to review, because at first I really didn’t think I was impressed, as the product seemed a bit on the cheap side. I was wrong, and after using it on a project where i was installing the hanging bracelets on a wood plank piece I created, as well as hanging that same piece above a door in a main room, I couldn’t be happier with this purchase. It made every part of the hanging process crazy easy! All the functions of the hanging device worked flawlessly and smoothly, and I will never hang anything without using this again. Definitely recommending this to friends and family, great product!” —rcr

2.

A habit calendar so you can track daily, weekly, and monthly tasks to get you on the right foot — whether you’ve made New Year’s resolutions or not. It’s undated, so you can start any time!


Amazon

It also has a brainstorming section so you can think up all the different things you’d like to be a little more accountable for. Each month has a different illustration and theme for suggestions too (for example, October is sleep-themed!).

Get it from Amazon for $18.

Promising review: “As a visual learner, I have to see progress to be able to maintain it. This helpful calendar does just that. I choose which habits I want to improve upon (or those I want to lessen). I look forward to checking it off and seeing that progress. It’s helped me become a cook, meal planner, walk my dog more often, do all dishes before going to bed, sweeping each day, and reaching out to family more. It’s what you want to improve upon and I love it. It’s helped me live a happier life and actually helped me maintain hobbies/habits I’ve always had trouble keeping up with. Worth the money, worth the time, give it a try if you’re looking to better your self.” —Caroline C.

Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

Promising review: “Perfect way to organize socks and make it fun to open the drawer and be like ‘what socks am I gonna wear today?’ And all the colors and patterns beam back at you. If you have boring socks then I would say screw it because you are boring.” —Esq

A pack of Miracle-Gro plant food *spikes* to revive and nourish all the flowering or foliage plants you seem to just…constantly kill.


amazon.com

Each one feeds your green child for up to two months!

Get a pack of 48 from Amazon for $7.41.

Promising review: “I have several houseplants that had stopped flowering, so I put a few of these spikes in the pot (there are directions on the back of package for quantity), and approximately a month after using these spikes, my peace lily had three flowers on it, and my African violets plants all got several blooms on them! This worked wonders for my plants that don’t flower also! I noticed that my ivy and cactus plants started growing faster, and they became more green and healthy looking. I am very happy with this product, and I will buy it again.” —Elizabeth

Nesting food storage containers in a rainbow of colors to make matching the lid easier than ever (each container has a dot with the same color as the lid right on the bottom!) — and these take up, like, *no* room in your cabinets.


Amazon

You know that thing when you’re prepping ingredients or packing away leftovers and you just CAN’T find the lid that fits?! No more. You can freeze, ’em, microwave ’em, and pop ’em in the top rack of your dishwasher, too!

Get the set of five containers and lids from Amazon for $25.93 (also available in smaller sets).

Promising review: “We absolutely love this set of food storage containers! The fact that all the pieces stack together and all the lids snap together is genius — really great for small kitchens like mine. I also love how the container and lid are color-coordinated. It makes finding the right lid for the right size container a breeze. They’re also just a cheerful color scheme that’s fun to look at. A++ buy!” —Abbey Thompson

6.

Investing 101, a beginner’s guide to all the money-making terms we probably don’t know — but should. Why are there so many confusing acronyms??


Amazon

Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

Promising review: “Most investment books I’ve read are generally worthless, with the author’s ego and business motives being the highlight. With Investing 101, I struck gold! It is a perfect lexicon of facts and information. It describes all the language & terminology, number and formulae, and strategies used by different investors. It’s concise and easy to understand. The information provided has given me enough knowledge to begin trying investing on my own. Excellent resource.” —Deborah Walker

7.

An over-the-door plastic bag organizer to restrain your collecting habits, corral your bags, and make it easy to grab one to use without disturbing the whole assortment. Just reach in the hole!


Amazon

Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in nine finishes).

Promising review: “I’m really happy with my kitchen organizer. It is out of sight, holds a lot of plastic bags and now, and I no longer have a huge bag full of plastic bags in my pantry. Cleared up a lot of space. Awesome!” —Monica

8.

A telescoping foam snow broom specifically designed to move layers of the frozen white crystals OFF your car with ease — without scratching your windows or paint.


youtube.com

And because it’s telescoping, it won’t take up too much space in your car. It also has two flashlights on the front for those dark winter mornings (sigh).

Get it from Amazon for $17.41, or one without the headlights for $17.03.

Promising review: “Especially great for any vehicles with a high roofline. Very easy to remove light or heavy snow quickly and safely on vehicle surfaces. Have always used the old brush type snow removers…this is faster and with telescoping pole reaches across roof line of SUVs and minivans easily. The scraper is useful for light buildup on windows, but a hand scraper will provide much more leverage. Only drawback is is does consume space in vehicle unless you unscrew the pole. No excuse for leaving that snow on the roof when driving with this tool!” —Frank

9.

An eight pack of spiral spin pins so you can transform a lazy pony into a chick updo in just seconds. Everyone will think you tried when you really just….didn’t.


Amazon

Get them from Amazon for $6.99 (also available in gold).

Promising review: “I LOVE THESE. I used to purchase the Goody brand but it seems my local stores stop selling the larger size and only carry the tiny ones now. I decided to try this brand out and I’m so glad I did. I love that there are eight per pack versus the two in the competitor boxes. I make sure to keep these handy anywhere I go. My hair is extremely long, about 25 inches, and one of these holds my hair in place perfectly. I use two when I’m playing volleyball and I never have to retie my hair like I used to when using a hair tie. I definitely recommend these.” —Victoria B.

10.

Get the set of eight from Amazon for $14.98.

Promising review: “I couldn’t get my windows clean using Windex and newsprint and a lot of elbow grease. There were always streaks and dirt left behind. Enter these things. One quick cleaning, and I do mean quick, and my windows are now cleaner than any windows I’ve ever cleaned. It’s simply amazing. We were all standing around in utter shock and delight before running around trying the cloths on other stuff: the TV, the picture glass. I know it sounds corny, but I couldn’t wait to get up this morning, because I woke up in the middle of the night excitedly thinking about trying it on the car today. Yeah, I know….I have an exciting life, right? Buy these now! I wish I’d had them all along. They are truly, truly amazing.” —Amazon Customer

12.

A set of shredding claws with handles so you can transform a store-bought rotisserie chicken into a HUGE variety of meals with ease — and without burning your fingers or getting them greasy.


Amazon

Quesadillas, chicken salad, and fried rice OH MY! Seriously, the number of gourmet meals you can make with a grocery store chicken is ridiculous!! Plus, you don’t have to worry about dealing with raw meat. 🙌

Get them from Amazon for $14.95 (or $24.99 for a set that comes with a barbecue sauce basting brush).

Promising review: “The handles make the difference! These are my first meat shredding claws; I can’t say how they would compare to the competition. I bought them because of the handles which seem more ergonomic for gripping than the other types meat shredding claws. I made a pork roast last week and these claws took it apart easily.” —Noreladim

13.

A set of silicone egg poachers with perforated cups to mimic the traditional poaching method (aka swirling water around and around) without having to do any work — and so your egg stays perfectly round and never wisps away.


amazon.com, Amazon

Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.95.

Promising review: “Basically my favorite thing ever. Tried these for the first time after failed attempts with other poachers and being too lazy to do a normal poach. These were SO easy. Bring water to a boil, slide egg from a ramekin into the pods, and within about 3.5 minutes, the eggs are done.” —Alexandra K.

14.

An easy-breezy pineapple corer perfect 🎶 if you like piña coladas 🎶… but not spending a fortune on pre-cut pineapple. This thing is so easy to use, it’s like a tropical vacation in your kitchen.


amazon.com

Cut off the top of your pineapple, twist the corer into the fruit (kind of like a wine bottle corkscrew), then pull it out. You now have a cored and spiral-cut pineapple in minutes!

Get it from Amazon for $13.48.

Promising review: “OMG! Why did I take so long to get one of these? I would typically spend two or three minutes slicing up a pineapple and I LOVE pineapple so its pretty common for me. Now, I can do it in 30 seconds, and that was the first time not knowing what I was doing or what to expect. I suspect I’ll have this down to 10 seconds on the next go round. Love IT! Oh, BTW, it is sturdy and seems like it should last a while.” —riverseine

15.

A fume-free oven cleaner you can spray on, leave for a minute, and then wipe away for an oven so clean, you’ll think it was swapped out for a new model overnight. Time to reward yourself after all this cleaning with a cake.


amazon.com

Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

Promising review: “Holy moly. This is some kind of miracle product. I sprayed it inside my oven and left it overnight, and wiped off an incredible sludge of brown goo in the morning, leaving behind a nearly pristine oven interior. There were a few areas that I had missed, so I sprayed and came back later that day. There are a few brown spots that don’t really want to come off, but I am not too fussed about them. 95% of the grease came right off. It worked on the sides of the oven and on the rack. What I really liked is that it didn’t smell too bad. I expected some terrible toxic chemical, and though it does have a (‘lemon’) odor, it’s not that strong. Definitely better than running the self-clean and filling my house with fumes for five hours. The can is a lot bigger than I expected, and I barely used any (I was cleaning the ‘small’ oven). It will last for a long time. Prepare to sacrifice a sponge to this project as well.” –SBP

16.

A Dash rapid cooker that’ll make whipping up nutritious hardboiled eggs less…well…hard. No boiling water, no checking a timer. Just sit back and relax until the (very loud) alarm goes off — perfect eggs are ready!

Yes, you can take a nap while waiting for your eggs to boil — and not worry about leaving them on too long. The removable parts are also dishwasher safe, so get ready for this to be your new lazy best friend. You can also make poached eggs, scrambled eggs, and omelettes in this game-changing product.

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in five colors).

Promising review: “If hard-boiled eggs are at all a part of your life, this device will change everything. Reclaim lost hours, catch up on missed TV, reconnect with old friends and family -—anything is possible with the free time you’ll find at your disposal as you drop six eggs into this beast, press a button, and then walk away. What will you do? High-intensity exercise? Model building? Learn a second language? I hear your concern. ‘What if I become so engrossed in my newfound love of taxonomy that I forget about my eggs?’ Fear not, efficient chef. Like the trump of Gabriel himself, the unmistakable tone of this technological marvel could rouse the dead and will bring you running to your fresh-and-ready ova’s side. The Dash Go Rapid Egg Cooker is what mankind has been working towards since the first roundish stone was shaped into a wheel. Witness the apex of human innovation!” —J. Mercer Crenshaw

P L U S, this gadget is ~Tasty-chef approved~ to be easier + save more time compared to traditional hard-boiling!

17.

A trio of rubber jar openers so you can get into that delicious container of pickles or your shortcut jar of tomato sauce without straining your hand. ~Get a grip~ already!


Amazon

One reviewer also had the genius idea of using the flat one under a cutting board to keep it from sliding away!

Get a set of three from Amazon for $3.46.

Promising review: “I bought a set of these years ago (about 10 years ago) for myself and my mother-in-law. Mine are still going strong, but she managed to wear hers out, so I ordered her another set. When my dad saw them, he wanted a pair. They both have arthritis in their hands and have tremendous difficulty opening jars and bottles. These grippers allow them to to get a strong enough grip to open all kinds of jars and bottles. The different shapes work great for different types of containers — the flats ones work well for just about anything with a lid; the cone shaped one is great for water bottles, salad dressing, etc. I would highly recommend for anyone with arthritis or a weak grip.” —MGS

18.

A dozen Bottle Bright tablets that’ll deep clean your thermoses and on-the-go bottles — no scrubbing required. These’ll get into all those hard-to-reach spaces and remove *all* the gunk.


amazon.com

Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8.

Promising review: “I seriously can’t believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn’t put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING.” —Amazon Customer

19.

A set of makeup-removing cloths to remove every single trace of dirt and makeup (even waterproof formulas!) with just water. And the cloths are super soft, so you won’t have to resort to harsh scrubbing that can dry out your face.


Amazon

Get a pack of three from Amazon for $3.99.

Promising review: “This product… I have no clue how this works, but it does! Let me start by saying I was wearing a full face of make up. I mean foundation, contour highlight, eyeliner, seriously the whole nine yards. All I did was wet it and wiped my face, my jaw literally dropped. This is hands down my favorite make up remover at the moment. The best part is that they are reusable so you don’t have to keep buying those expensive disposables that leave your face feeling greasy. And honestly, four dollars? Just buy them. Trust me, you won’t regret it.” —Heather and Ryne Griffith

A drain snake with over 4,000 micro hooks and a slim design to shimmy down any drain (you don’t even need to remove the cover) and snag all the hairs and goop that’s clogging the system — in one quick pull.


Amazon, amazon.com

Let’s just say my hair sheds a lot — and this bb WORKS.

Get it from Amazon for $5.28.

Promising review: “I bought one of these because of the reviews and I thought, with six kids I know we have slow drains. So I break it out on a Saturday night and started with my bathroom sink. OH MY GOSH! Disgustingly amazing. In two seconds I pulled out a massive hair/soap clog. It was truly amazing and so gross! I went to work on the other bathroom drains and they weren’t nearly as amazing or as quick but I pulled a bunch of dried hair out of the kids’ tub. So after five drains, I had my fun. I’ve spent a small fortune on Drano type products that never seem to work. I won’t buy them again. I was even so amazed I shared the nasty pic on Facebook and didn’t think twice about somebody judging me. Get this. Be prepared to throw it away as you’re not going to want to clean it.” —Jennifer R. Little

Promising review: “I bought these for mine and my mom’s car a while back ago and these little things are great. Since I gotten my license I’ve hated merging or switching lanes; I never felt good or safe doing it. Since having these its been a blessing, I feel less like a scared new driver. I’m currently encouraging my sister and friends to invest in these too! These are also great for backing up, because you can see exactly how close you are to hitting the car behind. They’re helpful when I parallel park in the city, and I like parking backwards, so this great for doing that too.” —Mariam Abass

Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

Promising review: “OMG! This is the most AMAZING product! We inherited some antique furniture from the ’30s that had been in storage forever… it was dry and dirty and not much to look at. I used this product on it and the oak wood literally came alive showing the beautiful grain and texture of the wood. I have since used it on my oak kitchen cabinets and they look AMAZING! I will never use anything else other than this product on my wood surfaces! No greasy feel… fantastic smell!” —Tiffany Sadowski

Promising review: “You ever look at your toilet brush in disgust and resentment? How’s a dirty used up brush sitting in your throne room? You clean your bathroom but then you put that sucker down in its place and it’s just like, mocking you. It’s never truly immaculate. Never knowing true cleanliness. Fear no more. Now you can shine the porcelain throne and not have to worry about a used up toilet brush mocking your clean sparkling bathroom. Gone are the days of breathing in dirty poop particles from the reusable potty cleaning brush thingy. Clorox Toilet Wand is the answer to your prayers if you want an easy, deep cleaning, toss-away-after-you’re-done type contraption for that porcelain throne of yours. Fast, cheap, and easy. Just like…. How we like to clean.” —Juliana

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $11.99.

Promising review: “I used three of these to help me make freezer meals for after I have a baby. I can honestly say I don’t know how I would have filled the freezer bags without these ingenious baggy holders. I was able to dump veggies, spices, meat, and cans of heavy beans and tomatoes into the bags, and they stood up the entire time without sliding or spilling. One of the bags I stuffed literally to the brim, as full as it could go, and the bag did not fall down. I would definitely recommend these.” —Grace S.

Promising review: “I have an old tub that I can’t replace (not remodeling this bathroom yet). It was gray and I had scrubbed it with Comet, bleach, etc. Nothing really got it clean. Till this. I was so excited by the result of this sponge that I used two up completely in one cleaning frenzy: floors, tub cabinets, everything. And it has a light, clean fragrance. I ordered a bulk pack the next day.” —K. Tekavek

Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

Promising review: “OMG! Every home should have one (or more) of these scrubbers. I used it when I was cleaning the grout on the kitchen countertops before refilling with grout, and it worked splendidly. I also use it around the sinks, the baseboards, the stove, and any other little place that needs cleaning. Make sure you have extra batteries on hand if you use the device a lot. This is well worth the money — and it wasn’t expensive. This would be a perfect extra gift to give a new homeowner or a couple starting out together.” —Mary

Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six colors).

Promising review: “I bought this brush a long time ago and it sat unused. Last week, I finally pulled it out to clean the floor of a very dirty fiberglass bathtub. What a great little tool! A job that easily would have taken me a half hour with a regular brush and Comet, took about five minutes and with no smelly harsh chemicals. I am really kicking myself for not trying it months ago. Now, I’m planning to buy one for each of my kids for Christmas.” —xxxxx111000

It’s a must-have for all those who love eye makeup.” —rasu

A tub of extra large, heavy duty cleaning wipes for getting tough jobs done in no time flat. No spraying, scrubbing, rinsing, scrubbing, and rinsing again. One wipe = the job is done.


Amazon

Get it from Amazon for $11.83.

Promising review: “I think these wipes are made out of magic — because they can clean just about anything with very little effort! One wipe cleaned my ENTIRE BATHTUB, including the hard water buildup and some residual soap scum. The wipe stayed wet for the entire use, and there was absolutely no sweating involved. I hate cleaning but I was so pumped about the tub I took wipe #2 to my hood vent and good golly it’s like it’s brand new. I’ve told everyone I know to buy these. I know they’re pricey but I swear the magic is there folks.” —Jen M.

A Waterpik that’ll take all the work out of flossing. Just aim the nozzle, and a targeted jet of water’ll get right in between your teeth, removing plaque and food particles without irritating your gums — or cutting off the circulation to your fingertips like regular floss.


Amazon

This model has an on/off switch right on the handle so you can pause easily without squirting water all over your bathroom. It comes with seven flossing tips for different needs, including for crowns and implants — this is great for braces, too!

Get it from Amazon for $64 (available in eight colors, plus a ~whitening~ version).

Promising review: “This thing is a necessity. That’s how strongly I feel about it after a month of usage. I had regularly used floss and felt that it was adequate, but decided to purchase a Waterpik because it was on sale and I was bored. Wow. This is one of the most important purchases I’ve made in years. I feel like a good analogy would be to try imagining cleaning the hard-to-reach parts of your vehicle with a rope. You’ve done it for years because it’s all you know. Then enters the pressure washer, which allows you to blast things to smithereens. Floss = rope, Waterpik = pressure washer. Bam. Done. Not going back as long as it works.” —Damian

A Muller veggie chopper to turn your onion-cutting tears into tears of joy when you realize the whole dang thing is diced with one press of the lever.

Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (or a version with four blades for $29.99).

Promising review: “This is the BEST chopper I have found and I have purchased many. This works so well that I bought two. Other choppers fail, sometimes on the first time. This chopper has several built-in features that lock the attachments in place as well as locks the hinge of the chopper in place. Other choppers do not have these features and are very fragile and break easier. I searched a long time to find this chopper and I won’t buy anything else. I chop fruits and vegetables every day and this chopper is a life saver to ensure that all chopped items are the same size and works every time. It’s a winner!” —LeviWilliams

33.

A John Frieda hot air brush so you can perfect a sleek *and* voluminous blowout in no time ~flat~ — without juggling a round brush in one hand and a heavy blow drier in the other.


BuzzFeed

Get the 1.5-inch brush from Amazon for $39.99 (or a 1-inch size for $34.99).

Promising review: “OMG this is the BEST HAIR TOOL for haircut with layers!! When I tried to style it at home with a regular blow dryer and round brush I couldn’t do it like the my hairstylist — it came out flat and straight. Then I came across this AMAZING brush. I am SOOOOO GLAD I tried it. This product is truly everything!!! It is LIGHTWEIGHT, which makes it very easy to hold, the heat temperature on high is perfect (first i thought it wasn’t hot enough, but it’s perfect to style hair without causing heat damage), the bristles are soft, hair slides through, does not pull on hair, no breakage at all. The feature that I LOVE is that it has a cool setting to let curls cool down before releasing them (NO NEED TO USE HOT ROLLERS). This hot air brush is so great that I had to purchase one for mom as soon as I was done using it. Cannot say enough good things!” —FashionChic

To say I love this brush would be an understatement. Check out my full review of the John Frieda hot air brush for all the ~hairy details~.

An original Squatty Potty for relaxing your Puborectalis muscle so you can poop without straining, aka so constipation is no longer your #1 (or should we say #2) consternation.


Amazon

If you somehow still don’t know what a Squatty Potty is, it’s a toilet stool that keeps your feet raised while pooping. ~Going~ in this position is supposed to fully relax your Puborectalis muscle, meaning you have an easier elimination, with no straining. And if you think that’s TMI, just try it and see.

Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in seven- and nine-inch).

Promising review: “I was hesitant about how much Squatty would impact my GI conditions but this is amazing. Although the stance is a bit awkward to experience at first, the results are immediate. After finishing, my lower abdomen is SO much more relaxed than a bowel movement without the Squatty. There is NONE of the strain/tightness/cramping I usually feel in my lower abdomen.” —S. Levine

Promising review: “My husband who is sick of helping me open my wine that he ordered this for me after I called him at work and was complaining how much I hate our wine opener 🙁 This opener my friend is super smooth it opens the wine bottle in one press of a button. My real issue with other wine opener was getting the cork out of screw afterwards, but with this wine opener all I have to do is just hit the reverse button to get the cork out out with no problem! It comes with the cap opener and charging cable. It’s lightweight and just looks great too; I’ve kept it in my kitchen with wine bottles it looks like a piece of decor. For all my girlfriends out there who hate the normal wine opener get this one, trust me you’ll love it. Take it from me, I’ve used all kinds of wine openers, twist, lever, rabbit, other type of electric ones and this one is the best.” —vidya

Promising review: “I love these things! I had curls that lasted the entire day!! My hair dries straight, it’s thin and doesn’t typically hold curls for more than an hour or two. But when I used these, I only had them in for four hours & they still held the curls until I went to bed that night — they survived a day at Disneyland! I didn’t even use hair spray or any type of holding product for that matter. I need to keep these babies in all night and see how they hold!” —Sarah Savin

Promising review: “Here’s the deal, I’m pretty much a tomboy, I don’t know how to do my makeup, I have thick hair, but never knew how to do anything but straighten it, until a friend made me try her Kiss automatic curling iron. It legitimately works and it’s the easiest thing to use! I’ve (briefly) tried other wands and burn myself over and over. I’ve never burned myself with this tool and I love that it makes it easy to curl away from your face on either side, with just a push of a button. I also like that it dings when it’s done, so it takes some guess work out. If you want curls, but are intimidated by all the tools out there, you won’t be disappointed with this styler.” —Uskadelig

Promising review: “Didn’t think it would work, but it DID with no scrubbing!! My husband didn’t think our grout was originally white, but I knew better. I put this on before bed on a section of grout in the shower, and woke up to gorgeous and bright white, no scrubbing at all the next morning. Just rinse it off. Absolutely buying another bottle. It wasn’t quite enough for my entire shower, but to be fair, we have a lot of small tiles. I think 2 bottles will get the whole shower floor. Bravo on a great product.” —thekuan

Get a six-quart Instant Pot from Amazon for $69 (also available in three-quart and eight-quart sizes).

Promising review: “I can’t believe that I love this thing. All my friends were getting them and raving about it. But I absolutely hate my slow cooker, and I figured this device would be much the same. I finally decided to get one when my friend posted that she had made amazing carnitas in it. My husband is Mexican and carnitas are his favorite food, so I thought I’d get one to try it out and hope everyone was right. The first thing I made (after the water test) was the carnitas and they KNOCKED OUR SOCKS OFF. Then I made rice and it came out better than my old rice cooker. Tonight I made ribs and the entire family went wild. I’ve had this Instant Pot for roughly 48 hours and I’m already using it for a fourth time right now to make oatmeal. Get one. You will not be sorry.” —Regina Croskey-Corcoran
