We Love This Olive Oil Dispenser, but Not for the Reason You Think
Most olive oil dispensers are actually not ideal for olive oil storage, as they expose the oil to two of its natural enemies: light and oxygen. Tall glass dispensers (the most iconic ones) allow plenty of both in. And if you’re keeping the olive oil dispenser by the stove, you’re likely exposing it to its third enemy: heat.

This Amazon-Exclusive Entertaining Line Will Make Your Next Party Look So Fancy
Once upon a time, not so very long ago, we didn’t expect much from paper plates and napkins, except that they (hopefully) held slices of pizza and cake. The days of sheer utility, however, are long gone. Disposable paper goods and plastic utensils that we not-so-secretly covet in a more permanent form can be found at multiple retailers.

The Cute $1 Sponge That Made Me Cleaner in the Kitchen
In the decade since I moved out on my own, I’ve had a dishwasher for exactly one of those years. For the rest of the time — in other (less fancy) apartments — I’ve been tackling all dishes, from big to small, by hand. And there are two things I’ve come to swear by: dish gloves and cute sponges. The idea of a cute sponge might seem frivolous, but hear me out.

This Coffee Grinder Has Over 3,200 5-Star Reviews on Amazon
Freshly ground coffee is, without a doubt, better than pre-ground. But there are many reasons we often opt to get our coffee pre-ground when given the option. The main reason is that at-home coffee grinders can be a pain. The easiest method, using a spice grinder, can often result in inconsistent or imprecise grind sizes. Disc grinders create the most precise grinding, but can be expensive or bulky.

Why This Is the One Microplane We Think Everyone Should Have in Their Kitchen
Want more zest in your life? Or maybe just more cheese? Say hello to the Microplane. While the company makes a vast array of graters and rasps (and even foot files), we found that for most home chefs there’s really just one we all need — the 40020 classic zester/grater. Microplane 40020 Classic Zester/Grater, $13 So what makes this microplane so grate? (Sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves!

3 Cute Amazon Kitchen Buys We 100 Percent Do Not Need (but Very Much Want)
When it comes to kitchen tools, we tend to be pretty big advocates for the well-made basics that don’t create clutter. But that doesn’t mean we are completely immune to the charms of quirky novelty items. And if there’s one brand that sums up non-essential but incredibly tempting, it’s Fred & Friends.

The Under $20 Buy That Will Organize Your Baking Sheets Once and for All
Unless you have unlimited storage space, chances are many of your kitchen essentials are stored in a cabinet that, like the universe, leans towards entropy. There are plenty of companies and products dedicated to controlling that chaos, with varying levels of success. The problem with many organizers, however, is that they don’t live up to the irregular nature of many of our personal collections.

The Baking Sheets That Will Actually Save You from Burnt Cookies
I really like baking and eating cookies. As someone who has done plenty of both, I am also well-versed in the forever debate around cookies: crisp and crunchy or soft and chewy? I have my own opinions, but one thing is for sure — no matter where you fall on the issue, no one likes a burnt cookie. Sadly, a burnt cookie is often what I wind up with. I have the uncanny ability of putting in a tray of cookies and completely forgetting I turned on the oven.

Immersion blenders are one of our favorite kitchen tools. Getting one can save you space and even save you money if you want to get one as an alternative to a regular blender.

Even if you have a blender you know and love, an immersion blender comes in handy plenty.

This Gorgeous Cast Iron “Everything Pan” Is Currently 50 Percent Off at Sur La Table
The Dutch oven (rightfully) gets a lot of love from Kitchn editors.

Upgrade Your Water Bottle Experience with This $10 Find Our Editors Love
We know that it’s way better for the environment (and our wallets) to eschew disposable bottles of water in favor of reusable ones. Luckily, thanks to brands like Soma But there’s just one major problem: Many water bottles have necks that are too narrow to allow for ice cubes to pass through. And a lot of us prefer cold water! The idea of an ice cube tray with long, narrow compartments to make ice cubes for water bottles isn’t exactly new.

The Ultimate Accessory for Your Le Creuset Is Currently on Sale
There are lots of reasons to love Le Creuset’s line of enamel cookware. One of the biggest (and maybe silliest?) things is the wide array of bright colors the pots come in. Deciding what size Dutch oven to get is easy — deciding if you want white, red, or orange? Well, that’s the hard part. Once you pick your color (or colors!), though, you can really go all out.

The Knife Drawer Essential You Can Get for Less than $10
When it comes to cutlery, chef’s knives get all the glory. They’re just so handy! And if you truly can only have one knife, the chef’s knife is the way to go. That said, we know most people have more than one knife. (It’s not like they take up much room!) So as much as we can go on and on about that eight-inch wonder, we also don’t want to forget about the chef knife’s little sibling: the paring knife. Victorinox 3.

The Amazon Travel Mug with More than 6,000 5-Star Reviews Is Currently on Sale
Perhaps it shouldn’t be surprising that people on Amazon can get really enthusiastic about their travel mugs.

For daily coffee drinkers, caffeine delivery is up there with shelter and food in our hierarchy of needs. So a coffee mug that elegantly solves so many of the pitfalls of lesser models is, of course, going to get rave reviews. Currently making do with a subpar mug?

3 Totally Unnecessary But Super Cute Finds for Taco Tuesday
Let’s be real: Tuesdays are rough. Mondays at least have the excitement of a new week, and by Wednesdays, the weekend is in sight again. Tuesdays are just the useless day in between. Which may explain why Taco Tuesday is such a hallowed tradition — something fun on the worst day of the week. Of course, the fact that it’s a weekly excuse to eat tacos could explain a lot, too.

My Tiny Kitchen Solution to Having Fancy Coffee at Home (with No Fuss)
I both love and require coffee in my life. This makes me fairly non-unique, as studies find that most American adults are regular coffee drinkers. What does make my situation unique, however, is that I cohabitate with two other adults with slightly different morning schedules than me — and one moderately sized kitchen. That leaves us with some challenges. Namely: coffee.

Made in Japan, the line features design-forward problem-solvers for the whole home. Of course, we are naturally taken with the selection of kitchen organizers.

One of Our Favorite Nonstick Skillets Is 60 Percent Off on Amazon
When it comes to nonstick skillets, we have a few horror stories of inexpensive, first-apartment type purchases that flaked into our scrambled eggs or failed to do the whole “non” part of “nonstick” altogether.

This Peak Millennial Pool Float Is Currently on Sale
A few summers ago, pool floats went from a kiddie must-have to a verified Instagram accessory for millennials. And the trend shows no signs of slowing down.
