21 Crazy Cool Kitchen Gadgets to add Personality to Your Kitchen

bake, cook, kitchen gadgets, shop, buy

Cooking isn’t really my jam. Because of this, all recipes on Lazy Sundays for now and always will be easy or so damn delicious that they’re worth all the extra effort I don’t want to put forth.

Though I don’t love cooking, I love, love, so much love eating. To give me a little more incentive to get my butt in the kitchen besides the reward of food, I love finding really cool, unique or just down right genius kitchen gadgets. Cooking in a crazy cool kitchen is way more fun.

Know someone with a super lame kitchen? These can help them too. Get something cool in there, would ya?

Kitchen gadgets need love too. Love these and show them off.

Lionel Ritchie cutting board
Lionel Richie Cutting Board from Amazon

Everyone needs a cutting board so why not have one that is more than just a hunk of wood, plastic or glass? This is a conversation piece. Not a fan of Lionel Richie? Amazon also has Star Wars, Game of Thrones and more. I also really love this Bob Ross one from ShutUpAndTakeMyMoney.com. Who doesn’t love Bob Ross?? kitchen gadgets

Flat Colander By Sinkstation from The Grommet

These are really cool for things like rinsing fruits and vegetables and they’re flat so they store almost anywhere! You can even use them as a sink protector on the bottom of your sink (so when you drop a coffee cup, it won’t scratch the sink or break the cup. Ahem, no one has ever done that though, I’m sure.) kitchen gadgets

Cutting Board Extension Bin (set of 3) By ChopTainer from The Grommet

I’m glad there are smart people in the world who come up with simple inventions like these. Extend the length of your cutting board by sliding one of these under the end and presto! Chopped veggies and such are ready to be stored, sauteed or added to a skillet.

Fruit and Vegetable Peeler By Peel Ripe Loops from The Grommet

Avocados are one of the hot, trendy foods of the moment. All kinds of healthy fats and you can apparently even healthify recipes like brownies with it. Pinterest told me so. If you’re on the avocado bandwagon, you know how tricky they can be to peel. Here’s your answer. Also hate how guac browns way too fast? There’s a handy storage bowl for that too. Check it out here. kitchen gadgets

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a weird looking grabby claw thing! This “Venus fly trap” looking contraption makes it a cinch to serve salads, noodle dishes, or anything that likes to slide off spoons or fall out of small tongs.

...It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a weird looking grabby claw thing!...

Starfrit Rotato Express Electric Peeler from Walmart

Let this electric Rotato peel your potato. Or apple or pear. Do your kids hate eating the apple peels? (But that’s where most of the nutrients are!!)

You know how when you make s’mores in the microwave, the marshmallow puffs up all weird and gets EVERYWHERE? That first world problem is no more!

What the F*@# Should I Make for Dinner?: The Answers to Life’s Everyday Question (in 50 F*@#ing Recipes) from Amazon

Last, but definitely not least, is the greatest titled cookbook of all time.

Simply choose another page for a new f*@#ing idea! Making choices is hard, so let this book do it for you with 50 solid meal ideas-and a side of salty language-for meat-eaters and vegetarians alike.” The funny read is worth it alone but the recipes do actually sound good too. kitchen gadgets

  1. Thank you for this! I think I’ve told you before but I love the name of your blog! Perfection!
    I’m buying the Hello it’s me cutting board and the stand up spreader! Perfect Ideas for my cooking aunt who has everything and loves Lionel Ritchie!

  2. How could I not have known about that knife that stands up. Oh my word, our children have all moved out now but I need that for my husband who gobs on the peanut butter and jam and forgets to wipe the counter!

  3. These are so awesome! It’s hard to say which one I like the best. The cutting board had me laughing, and I definitely want the electric peeler. I can’t be the only one who hates peeling potatoes. Thanks for the great post!

    • That cutting board is great, isn’t it? If you click the link, there’s even more. It’s really hard to pick a favorite. Just for pure “I probably need this in my life” factor, I love the microwave smores contraption. 🙂
