When it comes to being efficient in the kitchen, you don’t have to be a professionally trained chef to make your life a lot easier. You simply need the right tools. Kitchen accessories are notoriously pricey, but it doesn’t mean that there aren’t some fantastic finds that won’t break the bank. In fact, there are so many items that are super helpful that are also quite affordable. Here are just some of these time-saving kitchen finds.
Great Jones Holy Sheet
This sheet pan from Great Jones is not only fantastic, but it’s also super cute! While $40 might seem steep for a sheet pan, it’s an investment for a lifelong pan that will truly last you for years. Kitchn writer Danielle Centoni gushed to Apartment Therapy: “I got one and have been using it nearly every day ever since, roasting all kinds of roots and crucifers, making sheet pan dinners, and baking cookies, scones, and biscuits. The fact that the Holy Sheet can go head-to-head with these high-quality commercial sheets — and bring the bright, bold, super-fun color to boot — means it’s become my absolute favorite.”
Stojo Collapsible Box
Tupperware is one of the most useful things you can have in your kitchen, but when it comes to storing your tupperware in your kitchen, it can get pretty annoying very quickly. For some reason, it’s so hard to store them well without constantly having to search for their lids. This is why this collapsible box from Stojo is the perfect solution.
OXO Brew Single Serve Pour-Over Coffee Maker
If you’re working from home on your own, it can be annoying to make an entire pot of coffee just for yourself. If you find yourself constantly tossing out unfinished coffee, this is the perfect solution for you. As Ever Meister told Apartment Therapy: “If you think pour-over brewing sounds like a painstakingly slow process that requires a lot of advanced knowledge, this brewer is the one to prove you wrong.”
Hamilton Beach Classic Stand and Hand Mixer
For anyone who always wonders whether they should opt for a stand mixer or go just for the hand mixer, this two in one combo is the perfect compromise. It’s not clear why it took so long to put these two together as opposed to having two separate gadgets, but at least we have this available now. For $59.99, it’s a seriously great price for getting both.
YouCopia StoreMore Expandable Cookware Rack
Another kitchen dilemma is finding a good storage solution for your pots and pans, and for some reason, it’s much trickier than it should be. If you want a solution that doesn’t involve adding more cabinets to your kitchen, this expandable rack is excellent. As Britt Franklin, Apartment Therapy Assistant Shopping Editor says: “Being able to store my pans vertically freed up half of the cabinet and made it possible to arrange other kitchen tools that needed a home — specifically my ceramic bakeware. The cookware rack also reduced the struggle of digging deep into the cabinet to reach pans that inevitably got pushed to the back. No more straining and bending at odd angles in search of the right-sized pan!”
