This Online Shop You’ve Never Heard of Has Loads of Quirky (and Useful) Kitchen Gadgets—and They’re 20% Off Today Only
As much as we love Target, Anthro, Etsy, IKEA, and Amazon, there are other retailers in the world. Obviously. So we like to call out new ones and ones that you might not have heard of whenever we can. Hence this post about The Grommet! If you’re not familiar, The Grommet is an online shop that focuses on products that are unique, innovative, and useful. It’s got a whole kitchen and bar section with all sorts of fun gadgets that are as practical as they are surprising. And since today is National Thank You Day, they’re offering 20% off all orders (use code THANKS at checkout).
We figured, beyond telling you about the site, we should call out some of the coolest, most fun kitchen finds on there. And here goes.
1. Corn Butter Knife
Anyone who has ever tried to use a regular butter knife to butter corn knows that there’s a need for this. It’s angled so that the butter HUGS the cob as it gets spread around!

2. Adjustable Storage Containers
Ever pull out one container, only to realize halfway through filling it, that what you’re putting in won’t fit? That probably won’t happen with these containers, which expand and collapse as needed. The best part: As you press the lid down, air gets forced out so that your food stays nice and fresh.

3. Cookie Dipper
Lovers of sandwich cookies, rejoice! You can finally dunk your cookies in milk without soaking your fingers!

4. Silicone Stretch Lids
Think of these silicone lids as reusable plastic wrap (that won’t get all bunched up on itself!). They stretch to two to three times their size, and are safe for the oven, microwave, freezer, and dishwasher.

5. Reusable Shopping Cart Bags
While $30 may seem like a lot to spend on shopping bags (especially if you already have a cabinet full of reusable tote bags), know that one of our writers is totally obsessed with this sort of setup. See, the bags get sprawled out in the cart and they make it really easy to keep your cold stuff, pantry items, and other groceries all separated — making unloading extra easy.

6. Drawer Organizer Starter Kit
Here we have a non-slip, silicone mat (which you cut down to perfectly fit the size of your drawer) and 15 reposition-able “Divitz” (that stick to the mat and hold your tools in place). You can rearrange the pieces as you acquire (or get rid of) tools.

10. Guacamole Preservation Container
No one wants to eat brown guacamole! Which is where this container comes in. You spoon your homemade guac in, and push the bottom up. That’ll get rid of the air and push the guac up against the lid. Refrigerate the whole thing and then, when you go to eat it, you’ll have some green guac waiting for you.
