The 20 Best Kitchen Tools and Gadgets Under $30

Kitchen Tools and Gadgets

Today I was on Amazon, (what else is new) shopping for fun new kitchen gadgets, but you know what is just important? Stocking your kitchen with all the essential for success first. I thought it would be fun to share with you all of my favorite kitchen tools and supplies I can’t live without! Because I’m obsessed with cooking and I’m totally nerding out over all these things right now.  I found all the best products and deals out there for you, so get your credit card ready because I also provided links 🙂  You’re welcome.

Slow Cooking/ Crockpot Bliss

  1. Hamilton Beach 33660 Programmable Slow Cooker, Silver, 6 quart because I’m obsessed with my slow cooker and use it a minimum of 3 times a week. This one is extra special, because not only is it full sized, it’s programmable for long days at the office, and only $25!


2. Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners 2 Pack (8 Liners Total) because no one likes to clean.


3. Ziploc Slider Storage Bags Gallon Value Pack 32 ct (Pack Of 3) because prepping everything the night (or weeks) before is the key to dump-and-go slow cooker success on busy mornings. Also good for buying huge cuts of meat and freezing the rest.  You’ll never run out of reasons to have these on hand.


Shredding, grating, and zesting

4. Microplane 46220 Premium Zester/Grater, Turquoise Perfect for zesting lemons and limes over your pots and pans, and easy to hold!  I have this cute green one, (everything I own is lime green), but there are tons of fun colors available.


5. Cheese Grater – 6-sided Stainless Steel Box Grater Kitchen Tool. Fine – Course Surfaces. Hard Cheese, Parmesan, Vegetable, Chocolate, Spices, Fruit, Garlic, and Many Other Foods.  Six different sides? I’m upgrading.

10. Oster 2613 2-Speed 250-Watt Hand Blender, Red No joke this exact immersion blender model arrived on my doorstep today from Amazon and I already can’t live without it.  I was making homemade tomato soup, and instead of transferring the soup to a blender in batches, burning myself, transferring it back to the pot and making an enormous mess, I JUST USED THIS. Just stick it in the pot and it’s a hand held blender. Genius.

11.SameTech Corn Stripper Cutter Corn shaver Peeler Kitchen Cooking tools Remover With Hand Protector I had a serious moment with grilled corn this summer, but it’s a major pain to cut from the cob. It’s hot and it’s messy and it’s slippery. This is a brilliant invention.Kitchen Tools and Gadgets

Baking and Cooking

12. Taylor Precision Products Digital Measuring Cup and Scale  Did you know America is the only place that prints recipes with volume measurements for baking rather than weight measurements? Actually bake perfectly by weighing your dry ingredients. This measuring cup works double duty.

13. Farberware Nonstick Bakeware 3-Piece Cookie Pan Set, Gray Sheet pans.  Boring, I know, but these things are gold. Roast veggies, make pizzas, cook bacon, heck, make a whole sheet-pan-dinner. Pairs especially nicely with #14.Kitchen Tools and Gadgets

14. Reynolds Wrap Heavy Duty Foil (130 Square Foot Roll) This stuff is my lifeblood. Never clean sheet pans again.  Kitchen Tools and Gadgets
