This one handy tool makes two omelets in minutes. And its non-stick surface means it's easy to clean. 

$19 at Amazon

Breakfast is saved thanks to this time and space-saving omelet maker. Simply add your mixture, close the lid to cook, and in minutes you'll have two fluffy omelets — or frittatas, apple turnovers, calzones...whatever you can dream up!

Over 12,000 reviewers love this kitchen go-to. According to one fan: "Now that I have this in my life I simply won't be able to live without it. I love omelets. As somebody that has no culinary skills, this is the answer to my prayers. It's so simple and makes great omelets. I'm on the Keto diet so I use this at least twice a day."

This No. 1 bestselling gadget sharpens, hones and polishes in three steps. It has a comfy handle and comes with a safety glove to prevent cuts.

$13 at Amazon

This little gadget will save you a few headaches and a lot of money. If you own a set of knives, there's a really good chance they need sharpening. Even if you use a sharpening steel every time you cut through a tomato or chop celery, each slice slowly dulls the blade. You could take your knives to a professional, but not everyone has the time or money for that. It has over 21,000 five-star ratings from many happy shoppers who were considering the same thing.

One satisfied cook shared: "I've had my poor chef knife in a drawer and over the last year it's gotten dull and has a small dent on the blade. I just got this sharpener and used the three steps. And I gotta say I'm impressed. I managed to cut through paper after doing the three-step sharpening. It's like the knife is brand-new. For the price and ease of use, I would recommend anyone get this for their home."

"Works great!" gushed one. "I got this for my boyfriend who works on a construction site and does not have access to a microwave. We have had it for a few months now and he absolutely loves it! Now he can take leftovers from dinner the night before. It has been super beneficial during these cold months so he is able to have a hot meal on his lunch break. It has also given him so many more options of what he can take to eat."

Whether you're weighing for portion control or to make your recipes turn out perfectly, this kitchen scale can read down to the gram.

$13 at Amazon

Whether you're a home cook or a pro chef, a food scale can be the difference between an okay dish and a Michelin-star-worthy plate. This scale has a smooth, easy-to-clean surface, and even has four units of measurement so you can accurately portion your ingredients, as more than 118,000 five-star fans on Amazon can attest.

Shared one thrilled shopper: "I bought this kitchen scale for my mom, and she loves it. It's very thin and takes up almost no room at all in the cabinet, and the digital display is nice and clean. It appears to have an auto-on-and-off feature, and it comes with a spare battery! For the money, this is a terrific little tool for cooking, weighing for mail postage, or even hobbies."

This No. 1 bestselling handheld electric can opener works with the push of a button. More than 65,000 five-star fans are opening cans without the headache (and sore fingers).

$30 at Amazon

Say goodbye to dangerously sharp edges and fiddling with a manual can opener — this electric one is worth its weight in gold if you never accidentally nick your fingers on a jagged lid again.

"By far, the best one-handed can opener I've found. A little powerhouse compared to every other kind I've used," shared a shopper. "The moment I turned it on, I knew, finally, I'd hit the can opener jackpot. There was no doubt I'd no longer have to deal with any more half-opened cans, stuck openers that couldn't be separated from the cans, frustration, wasted money and having to toss another ridiculous busted device in the trash."

Frothy lattes and cappuccinos are just one button away. It's brightened the morning of over 58,000 rave reviewers.

$9 at Amazon

Forget having to go to a coffee shop for those perfectly frothy lattes, cappuccinos and matchas — this magical little frother can do it all. It makes just about any drink creamier in seconds, and it's so easy to use. Plus, it comes in a ton of different colors, so you can get one to match your coffeemaker or the rest of your small appliances. You can even use it for tea and honey!

One fan exclaimed, "Loved this so much we bought another! We initially purchased this frother for my husband to mix his coffee but I loved how well it whisks! We bought a second one so he could have one just for his coffee and I could use mine for whisking eggs, mixing sauces, etc."

A simple kitchen communications system: This easy-to-read sign keeps tabs on cleaning and it has over 17,000 five-star ratings. 

$7 at Amazon

If you've ever asked a family member to start the dishwasher, only to check on it hours later and pull out a dirty glass, you need this. It's a simple but genius idea: Just stick this magnetized indicator on your machine and alert your housemates to the state of your cookery by sliding its window left or right to indicate whether the contents inside are "CLEAN" or "DIRTY." No more accidentally picking up a dirty plate or loading dirty dishes into a dishwasher that's full of clean ones!

"My parents got a machine not too long ago that has controls and indicators on the top of the door, which is covered by the countertop when it is closed," one wised-up shopper shared. "They can never tell if the machine is clean or dirty until they open it up and pull the racks out. They've had several instances where dirty dishes have been put in a clean dishwasher or 'dirty' dishes got put back in the cabinets because they were semi-cleaned from the sink. These problems are no more. I got a big hug and a smile when I brought this over to them."
