No matter how convenient it is later, it’s an unfortunate truth that meal prep takes a while, whether you’re making a single weeknight meal or a week’s worth.

We are huge fans of the OXO Salad Spinner, so it makes total sense to us that this one made the bestseller list. Contributor Geraldine Campbell was turned onto this super-effective device after dating a chef, and it quickly became her favorite way to wash and store her greens until she was ready to make a salad. “I use the basket in the spinner to rinse the greens, plop the thing in the spinner, give it a whirl, dump out the excess water, and store,” she advised. “This little trick has the bonus of keeping salad greens fresh and crisp longer than if you just put them in the refrigerator right away.”

A set of grill prep trays is a need if you’re prepping and grilling meat for the rest of the week. Color-coded, the trays prevents food contamination by separating the raw from the cooked meat. The bottom tray’s deep sides contain the raw food, and the top tray works as an elevated platform for the cooked food. Plus, the BPA-free, shatterproof melamine won’t absorb any flavors.

A well-made cutting board should be first on any meal prepper’s must-have list. This reversible cutting board has a handy detachable tray that hangs over the counter edge, where you can store and separate prepped ingredients from scraps.

The Le Creuset Dutch Oven is a classic that’ll last you for years, and it’s an investment that we know will pay off time and time again. For contributor Abigail Abesamis Demarest, it’s a must-have item for cooking all of her favorite dishes. “I’ve been impressed with how much food I can cook in my Le Creuset Dutch Oven at once, which is one of the reasons I went with a 5.5-quart pot,” she wrote. “I can make enough soup for the week, and for stews and pasta sauces, I’ll freeze leftovers for easy dinners down the road.” And this discounted option at Williams Sonoma is even bigger, so it’s guaranteed to cover quite a few meals over the course of the week.
