5 Cool Kitchen Tools You Didn't Know You Needed

This post contains affiliate links.

I love finding the latest and greatest kitchen tools and gadgets. Some of these you might have heard of, but perhaps some are new to you. I have tried each and every one of these and I love them all. They make my life easier when it comes to chopping, blending, cooking, opening, slicing ... you get the idea.

Say good-bye to tedious mincing and chopping with the Jenaluca herb scissors. Just two snips with the sharp, finely balanced 5 blades equals 10 knife chops. Snip herbs in perfectly sized pieces right onto plates and pans. Garnish like a boss!

Looking for a superior knife for the home cook or professional without spending a fortune? Check out the Ergo Chef Prodigy Series 8” chef knife. When it comes to prepping, chopping and outdoor grilling, every chef needs a knife that  can handle large food. It needs to deliver unmatched performance, be made with exceptional quality, while feeling comfortable in a chef’s hand. The Prodigy Series 8” Chef Knife by Ergo Chef meets these expectations and more. It boasts an ergonomic non-slip grip handle over a full steel tang for strength and balance, so cutting is effortless. Its lighter weight provides easy handling and control. This knife cuts like butter and feels great in your hand. At under $25, you can't beat the price and quality!

Speaking of relief for your hand, it's time to stop struggling with bottle caps! Opening all size plastic bottles and popping bottle tops from any brand is a snap with the magicOpener bottle opener. It works so fast and it is very comfortable in your hands. The Extreme magicOpener, which is the one I have, combines all the benefits of the original magicOpener with the added feature of opening large, pull-tab food cans like pet food, sauces and soups. Never again fight with a flip top can, tug at a twist top or mangle a metal cap. It will become one of your most used kitchen gadgets. Find out more at

I love breakfast sandwiches, but I never seem to leave early enough to pick one up in the morning. Forget the fast food drive-through. With the Hamilton Beach breakfast sandwich maker, you can enjoy a hot, homemade breakfast sandwich in under 5 minutes. Simply place the ingredients inside, build the base of your sandwich in the bottom layer, place the egg on the cooking plate and close the lid. Slide the cooking plate out and your sandwich assembles itself. Open the lid and your hot breakfast sandwich is ready to eat. The included recipe book provides a variety of breakfast sandwich options, from the traditional egg, ham and cheese to the unique cheddar, apple, bacon and egg croissant sandwich. When I first got this I thought there was no way it would work. But it actually does and it is so simple.

I am sure you are familiar with personal blenders. Unlike bulky blenders, the Magic Bullet is so handy, so versatile, and so easy to use that you'll put it to work every single day (probably several times a day). I like that it saves me time because it does almost any job in the kitchen in 10 seconds or less! There are no buttons to press, no complicated manuals to read. Simply place one of cups on to the high-torque power base and press. What can you do with a Magic Bullet? You can make salsa, guacamole, bean dip, smoothies, sorbet, whipped cream, chicken salad, the list goes on and on.
