I ordered 2 of these for my utensil drawer and they've made a huge difference. I've managed to collect at least 3 different styles of silverware over the years, so trying to stack them in a traditional drawer organizer wasn't working very well. This was the perfect solution! Now I just need to figure out why we never seem to have enough spoons....
This was a recent Christmas gift from my boys and it's one of the smartest kitchen buys I've made. It looks like a cute, tiny oven so I don't mind seeing it on my counter. We've air fried everything from vegetables to wings to taquitos and other frozen appetizers. It reheats pizza so it tastes like the day you made or bought it, and you can do a few pieces of toast or even a small batch of cookies. I did a lot of research before landing on this particular model and it's a winner!
Our Echo was a Christmas gift from my in-laws and we loved it so much that we gifted one to them a year later. We had an epic dance party in their kitchen that night because Alexa played every song we requested—unlimited Amazon music is less expensive for Echo owners and it has an app for our phones so we can download and listen anywhere. Aside from the music, we use Alexa in the kitchen for weather reports, sports updates, local and national radio stations, nightly Jeopardy games, a kitchen timer and more.

My 10-year-old makes smoothies almost every morning--it's a new habit that started with his braces. His daily recipe is orange juice, a banana, yogurt and frozen fruit (whatever kind we have on hand). I have a Ninja blender that I swear by, but this version is small enough to sit on your counter and lightweight enough to store in a cupboard even for daily use. All the pieces are dishwasher safe! If you need a few new smoothie recipes, check out number 9 on our Top 10 Back-To-School Freezer Meals For Busy Moms.
If you don't want to use plastic straws anymore, but you're not sure what you'll like as a replacement, I recommend these FDA-approved stainless steel straws. This package has curved and straight straws of different lengths, and removable silicone tips in case you're not crazy about drinking straight from a steel straw. And they're dishwasher safe!
It drives me crazy to throw out lettuce or vegetables, but I'm also not a fan of running to the grocery store multiple times a week. I don't know what I'd do without my salad spinner! My lettuce lasts so much longer! I buy a few bunches of leaf lettuce at the beginning of the week, clean it all and store it in the salad spinner. I know there are less expensive versions, but this is the one I have had for a long time.
This is Mary's recommendation for the best corkscrew because it's easy and pretty effortless to open a bottle of wine.
I shared this idea in our last post: Best Parenting Hacks Guaranteed to Save You Time. Our friend Sally Kuzemchak at Real Mom Nutrition shared this genius hack on her Instagram stories and I immediately bought a shoe organizer for our water bottles to hang on our pantry door. Wrangling all those in a cupboard is a nightmare and I don't need to waste energy being frustrated every time we empty the dishwasher. Problem solved for only 10 bucks!

When I asked a few friends if they had favorite kitchen tools from Amazon, they had a lot to share. Our ages span three decades, so these are must-haves whether you’re a new parent, in the teen years or an empty nester.
