With over one billion active users worldwide, TikTok is where the action’s at. Besides giving us catchy dance routines, the platform has also quickly become the number one site for shopping inspiration — at least for TikTok users. The viral term “TikTok made me buy it” is solely responsible for tons of sold-out products on sites like Amazon, Etsy, and The Container Store. Which got us thinking: What kitchen products are TikTok users shopping the most right now? We mined the app to find some of the most popular items, and yes, there’s a lot of random stuff, but we also found some incredibly cool tools, accessories, and gadgets we’d totally add to our own kitchens. From seriously gorgeous spice labels to an ingenious hack that keeps your sink slime-free, there’s tons of clever inspiration. Below, 10 of our favorite TikTok buys!

1. Modern Spice Labels

Looking to create a bespoke spice atelier? Take your pantry game to the next level with these gorgeous labels that look like they belong in a fancy designer store. For $10, you get 20 standard labels that fit all kinds of jars, including larger mason jars. They’re also water and oil resistant so they won’t peel off or look worn out. You can even customize your own labels in different shapes and sizes for $24.

Buy: Modern Spice Labels, $10

2. Ebelskiver Pan

If you’re looking for a new breakfast dish to add to your weekly rotation, the ebelskiver pan is a worthy contender. Use it to create classic Danish pancake balls, which you can fill with jam and fruit for special occasions. The pan also comes with easy recipes and helpful instructions.

Buy: Ebelskiver Pan, $29

3. Olive Oil Measuring Dispenser

This thing could totally upgrade your salad game (or at least 3,50,000 Tik Tok users seem to think so). Just pull apart the base, fill it with oil, and add your favorite herbs. Screw the lid back on, press the infusion button, and voila! — you have your own fancy bottle of herb-infused olive oil. A convenient little pour spout lets you control the amount of oil you want to add.

4. Coffee and Tea Station Essentials

The Home Edit ladies are on TikTok and absolutely killing it. We’re particularly inspired by this tea-and-coffee station video that transforms a rather boring space into a delightful nook. What’s the secret sauce? The Home Edit’s stylish, clear containers, of course, which are exclusively available at The Container Store.

5. Coffee Warmer

“This item sits next to me right now, and it keeps me going,” says Andrea Kaufman, Kitchn’s Audience Growth Assistant Editor, who was inspired to buy her own coffee warmer after spotting it on TikTok. Unlike other pricier options, this $30 heating plate is incredibly popular with TikTok-ers as well as Amazon users, who’ve given it a solid 4.6-star rating. Simply plug it in, and it automatically turns on once you place your cup on it, keeping your beverage warm for hours. Besides white, it comes in six other colors, including a sweet pink.

6. Cereal Dispenser

Anyone else line up their cereal boxes on top of their refrigerator and worry they’ll topple over every time you open the door? Swap that old-school method for these chic cereal dispensers. They take something as simple as cereal and make it look fancy, while also keeping your morning breakfast within easy reach. And with the twist of a knob, you can fill up your bowl, without creating a mess. The dispenser comes in four fun colors, including a cheery red!

Buy: Indispensable Dry Food Dispenser, $26 (normally $35)

7. Electric Potato Peeler

Fun fact: This video has racked up almost 800,000 views, so clearly electric potato peelers are popular. And while we definitely don’t need one on our countertops, we totally wouldn’t mind it. It comes with six blades, so, besides potatoes, you can use it to peel other vegetables and fruit. We don’t see ourselves using this on a daily basis, but during a big dinner — like, say, Thanksgiving, when potatoes rule as sides — this would be an absolute asset.

Buy: Starfrit Rotato Express 2.0 + 6 Replacement Blades, $30

8. Portable Personal Blender

The bamboo chopping board and strawberry slicer are great, but we’re mesmerized with this portable blender that comes in four fun colors. Rather than prep smoothies in advance and worry about ingredients going bad, this blender lets you whip up fresh smoothies on the go, or on your desk or on your couch…. you get the point. It’s also affordably priced and, based on reviews, can cut through tough fruit, veggies, and even ice cubes.

Buy: PopBabies Portable Personal Blender, $37 (normally $39)

9. Danish Dough Whisk

Just like love a good dough whisk. Unlike a regular balloon whisk or a wooden spoon, the thin wire loops on the Danish dough whisk cut through the stiffest doughs and extra-thick batters in a jiffy. It also helps to integrate the ingredients without creating extra gluten, which is a major plus if you’re after perfectly baked loaves of bread. You can even use it for prepping a roux or other thick sauces.

Buy: Danish Dough Whisk, $14 (normally $20)

10. Multifunctional Sink Basket

This rather unassuming sink strainer has racked up 18.5 million views since this TikTok video was first published! It’s kind of brilliant, when you think about it. Rather than fill up your main kitchen sink drain, which can get smelly and slimy quickly, hang this little basket on the side to collect the day’s waste. The large holes at the base drain away any liquid and also prevent bacteria from breeding. And once you wrap up the day’s work, just toss it in the dishwasher for hands-free cleanup.

Buy: Triangular Multifunctional Sink Basket, $7 (normally $8)
