If you had to cobble together a list of small kitchen appliances that you thought were the most popular right now, what would you say? An Instant Pot? (Which one, though?) Some coffee stuff? And then maybe you’d be stumped? Luckily, you don’t actually have to make this list — because that would be a weird thing to ask you to do. Plus, we’ve done it for you.

Curious what people were buying, we looked at Amazon’s list of the bestselling small kitchen appliances and rounded up the 10 most relevant finds. You’d be right if you said the Instant Pot and some coffee stuff, but there are a few surprises in here, too. Let’s take a look.

1. Dash 6-Quart Deluxe Electric Air Fryer

Not familiar with the Dash brand? You will be by the time you finish reading this list because their stuff is POPU-LAR! We were surprised to see the 6-quart air fryer on here (and not the adorable mini, which gets our vote as the best air fryer for small families), but it works just as well and is more suitable for, say, a family of four. And it’s still pretty darn cute.

2. Dash Mini Waffle Maker

Dash again! This is the single bestselling waffle maker on Amazon (even out of all these top-ranking, more expensive models!). The whole thing is about the size of your hand, and it’s great for making fully customized waffles for everyone around the table.

3. Instant Pot DUO Mini

Who would have thought that mini stuff would be so popular? While we say the 6-quart size is really best for most families, we definitely see the appeal of the smaller machine for people who live alone or with one other person. The DUO is a 7-in-1 device that has preset buttons for beans/chili, soup, rice, and more.

4. NutriBullet 12-Piece Blender

There must be lots of smoothie-lovers out there shopping on Amazon — that’s what this guy really shines at making. It makes personal-sized smoothies (with a super-strong motor that can tackle tough ingredients like kale and nuts!) and comes with blender jars that double as to-go cups.

5. Instant Pot LUX Mini

Just a slight step down from the DUO, the LUX is a 6-in-1 machine and is really just missing that beans/chili button (although you can still make both of those things in the device). Honestly, though, we don’t see why people would opt for the mini LUX when the mini DUO is often the exact same price.

6. Keurig K-Mini Single Serve Coffee Maker

Perfect for people in small apartments or dorm rooms, this little coffee maker is less than five inches wide and makes a single cup of coffee at a time. (Again, so many mini things!)

7. AmazonBasics Stainless Steel Portable Electric Hot Water Kettle

This sleek kettle can boil up to one liter of water in just a matter of minutes. Once the water begins to boil, the kettle turns itself off automatically, so you don’t have to worry about whether or not you remembered to turn it off before you went to work.

8. Dash Rapid Egg Cooker

One last find from Dash! This egg cooker has a cult following. Proof: Last year, 400,000 people bought it during Amazon Prime Day. It can hard-boil six eggs, poach two eggs, or make omelets — and fans say the eggs taste way better in this than if you made them on the stovetop.

9. Keurig K-Classic Coffee Maker

As the name implies, this coffee maker is a classic. It has a large, 48-ounce water reservoir that allows you to brew around six cups before you have to fill it back up. And you can brew 6-, 8-, or 10-ounce coffees, depending on how much coffee you need, er, crave.

10. Krups Coffee Grinder

There are two kinds of coffee-drinkers in the world: those who buy grounds and those who grind their own beans. If you’re in the latter camp, you might want to check out this grinder. You just fill it with beans, choose the number of cups of coffee you want to make, and the Auto-Dose Grinder will automatically deliver the grinds to achieve the Golden Ratio for a balanced cup.

What do you wish was on this list? Is there a toaster you love? Or a stand mixer?
