Your kitchen’s where the real magic happens. It’s where you make your favorite meals and where you quite literally bookend your days. It’s a place that both sets the tone for each day and helps you decompress after particularly long ones.
But come on:
You’re probably like us. There’s only so much time in the day, and you’re not always able to allocate significant time when preparing meals. But that doesn’t mean you don’t value your time or what you consume or that you don’t appreciate the sanctity of your kitchen.
It just means you expect more. And don’t get it twisted—we do, too. That’s why you came to the right place! Because cooking food doesn’t have to be an event. Sometimes you just need some sustenance to keep you going.
And, still, when you do need to really pull out all the stops, it doesn’t hurt to have a few tricks up your sleeve. Because, ultimately, isn’t that what technology is? An advantage we give ourselves? But, nonetheless, we’ve got you covered:
Here are 7 unusual but super convenient tools for your kitchen.
Let’s be honest—one of the biggest bummers generated by cooking is, well, clean up. And, especially when it comes to splattered oil, grease, and whatever, this is a great precautionary tool to save you some time after you’ve eaten.
Because when your belly’s full, cleaning up is nothing short of repulsive. Especially when it’s mostly oil or grease.
As seen on shark tank, this great Frywall splatter guard is the “first-ever splatter guard” that provides “all the benefits of an uncovered pan without the mess.” Designed to contain splatters while allowing steam to escape freely, it’s truly a game changer.
Made with FDA-compliant silicone, this guard can withstand up to 450 degrees of sustained heat. Dishwasher safe and easy to roll up and store, whether sautéing veggies or pan-frying bacon, this is the only true protection you can rely on.
Believe us: we have the scars and burns from errantly splattered oil to prove it.
Easy to use and—most importantly—easier to produce restaurant-grade sushi with, this empire bazooka roller and sushi mat is the premier tool for anyone who enjoys sushi enough to make it at home. Which is pretty much all of us, right?
Particularly great for making sushi in a hurry, all you have to do is add your rice and ingredients inside this contraption, put your sushi roll on the bamboo sushi mat, and then push out the perfectly condensed and tubular roll of sushi. Rolling’s never been this easy.

And let’s be clear—when the result is this perfect, it’s not cheating. It’s simply working smarter.
Maybe it’s a guy thing, but honestly—who wouldn’t want to be equipped with claws to shred meat? And let’s be totally honest—this is probably going to appeal to fans of Wolverine the most. And that’s OK. Because half the battle is making cooking fun.
Made out of heavy-duty stainless steel, these claws are engineered to handle large pieces of meat. Whether you’re grabbing, lifting, or shredding—this is guaranteed to make your job easier and keep your hands cleaner.
Easy to clean and dishwasher safe, simply place your fingers in between the blades, grab the handles, and you’re good to go. This shredder is nothing short of a testament to the fact that sometimes evolution means taking a step back or two.
If you’re the kind of person who loves all things citrus—and I mean the kind of person who thinks anything remotely lemony, lime, or orange flavored is an enhancement—then this quirky citrus spritzer might be the perfect tool to have on hand.
Whether it’s for food, cocktails, or regular drinks, this plastic implement is sure to revolutionize how you spruce things up. Easy to disassemble and clean (and, obviously, reassemble), its serrated teeth enable you to puncture any rind with ease.
Then all you have to do is spritz out the juices contained in the fruit. And viola. No more squeezing until your fingers and hands ache. No more unused juice gone to waste. This is what the future is supposed to feel and look like. And we’re here for it.
If you live in a household wherein a vegetarian/vegan and meat eater are forced to cohabitate—though coexistence can sometimes feel impossible in these situations—then this master non-stick 5-in-1 divided skillet is a great way to expedite cooking!
Just as good for picky eaters who can’t stand to have foods mix, this aluminum pan is dishwasher safe. But, best of all, if you’re just cooking for yourself, this enables you to cook an entire meal at once. It saves time involved in cooking and cleaning up.
