Sure, your kitchen might be stocked with well-known appliances like an Instant Pot and an air fryer, but there are a few other hidden gems you should consider adding to your arsenal. We found several helpful tools on Amazon that thousands of shoppers have already tried and given rave five-star reviews. Not only are these tools great for your own home, but they also make useful (and inexpensive) gifts for holidays, birthdays, and just-because occasions.

The most popular item on our list is a set of reusable silicone baking cup liners with more than 5,000 perfect reviews. They’re ideal for making homemade muffins and egg bakes, and some Amazon shoppers even use them to make non-food things, such as lotion bars.

Reusable Swedish sponge cloths and glass drinking straws are rapidly making their way into kitchens everywhere, helping reduce our carbon footprint and replacing disposable paper towels and plastic straws. One five-star reviewer loves how durable the cleaning cloths are and says, “I’ve used the same two for a month now and they still look great, [and] when they go downhill, I can compost them.” They are absorbent, flexible, and great for cleaning anything from countertops to dirty dishes. 

Whether you’re searching for an efficient way to make your favorite foods or clever ideas to keep your kitchen tidy, these items will do the trick. Peruse all the affordable gadgets below.
