Call us greedy (or anything else you find fitting!), but if you asked us to write up a list of our most-wished-for kitchen tools, it would be a lot of big-ticket items mixed in with some upgraded versions of gadgets we already have. (It’s a wish list, right!?) And that’s what we’d expect from most home cooks, actually. But this Amazon list has proven us wrong: Amazon rounded up the most-wished-for kitchen utensils and gadgets and the list is super down-to-earth and practical. And full of really great picks! Let’s take a look.

1. Pyrex Measuring Cups

Pyrex measuring cups get our vote for the best liquid measuring cups (they can go in the microwave!) and this set comes with everything you could possibly need — a 1-, 2-, and 4-cup option.

2. AmazonBasics Silicone Macaron Baking Mat

Even if you’re just making simple cookies, you’ll probably want a silicone baking mat (to make sure the cookies don’t stick and that the bottoms brown evenly). A popular name-brand version costs around this price for one, and here you get two!

3. Premium Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls

Restaurant-quality stainless steel mixing bowls are pretty crucial. These nest nicely and have a decently wide rim around the top to help you keep your grip while mixing. And they have 2,700 five-star reviews!

4. Miusco Silicone Cooking Utensils Set

If sitting out in a crock, a mismatched set of spoons/tools can make your counter look messier than it is. This gorgeous set can help your cooking space look more streamlined. Of course, they’re more than just nice to look at — they’re also incredibly durable and versatile (thanks to the silicone parts!).

5. KitchenAid 5-Speed Ultra Power Hand Mixer

The only small electric to make this list! KitchenAid knows a lot about electric-powered mixing, so we totally support this pick. The mixer comes in 17 different colors, has five speeds, and is incredibly comfortable to hold.

6. Kamenstein Tilt 12-Jar Countertop Spice Rack Organizer

This spice rack deal is incredible: In addition to the jars and the organizer rack, you also get FREE SPICE REFILLS for the NEXT FIVE YEARS. We’ll give you some time to let that soak in.

8. 1Easylife Stainless Steel Measuring Spoons

The two things we like most about these measuring spoons: the heads were designed to fit into small spice containers; and the markings are engraved into the stainless steel, so they won’t rub off over time.
