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.
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
Why did I not know about this kitchen gadget sooner?!?! A butter/jam knife that stands up? No more slippery butter or sticky jam all over the counter? This is genius. Kudos to the inventor of this one. kitchen gadgets
Muffins or cupcakes in zombie heads? Yes, please. Brains….mmm….brains….. kitchen gadgets
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
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.
Do you really need to professionally reseal your bags? No. But do you want one? Hells yeah. What a fun little gadget to add a secure tape seal to your bags. Guarantees freshness and protection from the stealers of the food in your house. kitchen gadgets
I want to eat everything in this picture. 100% pure maple syrup over the whole thing and a cup of coffee. Wait. What was I talking about? Oh yeah, this skillet. Make me breakfast in it. (Side note – did you know they make sprayable maple syrup?? I did not. Someone please try this and let me know how it is.) kitchen gadgets
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
Ever wish that darn mixing bowl would just stay put? Arms and wrists tired from wrestling to keep the mixer and bowl in check? Here ya go. Make this handy dandy kitchen gadget do some of the work for you. 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.
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!!) This is easy and safe enough for them to use themselves. It can even be used cordlessly to take along to picnics or even outside to save on kitchen mess. kitchen gadgets
Not really kitchen gadgets but I love these marshmallow mugs. What an adorable way to enjoy your hot chocolate or coffee. So darn cute!! These will definitely add some personality to your kitchen. kitchen gadgets

This spartan will block your knife attacks! And hold your knives until you need them next. What a buddy. This knife block is a pretty bad ass way to store your knives. kitchen gadgets
Do I really need to say anything about this one? Foxes are freakin’ adorable. Cheese is awesome. Buy this. Show it to everyone that comes over. “Hey you, check out my fox grater!” kitchen gadgets
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! The little hands on this guy put pressure on the top cracker so the marshmallow is evenly pressed down as it heats up. Do you need this ridiculously unnecessary gadget? No. But do you really need it? Yes, yes you do. kitchen gadgets
“Dammit, the spoon slid into the pot!” “Ahhh, my spoon rest already has a dirty spatula on it!” “Do I really just have to leave this spoon on the counter?” Ever think these things or actually say them out loud? Get one or two of these little guys to hold onto your spoon while cooking, or even serving, your dishes. What a cute and easy-to-store way to keep all your unwieldy utensils in line! kitchen gadgets
Beer and cooking? Yes. Cute, standy up monster to open your beer? Yes. Instantly add personality to your kitchen? Aww, hell yes. kitchen gadgets
Carrots, not just for snowman noses anymore! You can whisk with them too. I’ve also heard they’re edible…kitchen gadgets
Last, but definitely not least, is the greatest titled cookbook of all time. The description is great too: “This choose-your-own-adventure style cookbook provides quick and easy solutions for the nightly conundrum. Don’t like the recipe? 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
If you get any of these, or gift them to your favorite cook/baker/kitchen user, I’d love to see them in action! Post pics to Lazy Sundays’ Facebook page. The goofier the picture, the better!
