If you are anything like us, the prepping, cooking, and cleaning processes are enough to make you want to order out. However, that is not always possible.

Thankfully, there are kitchen tools that make everything easier in the kitchen.

Now, you can avoid the crumbs with these $8 toaster bags. They are perfect for your grilled cheeses, pastries, and anything else you might want to whip up.

5. Dash Mini Waffle Maker

The $18 waffle maker is a fantastic addition to any kitchen. We love it because it does not require the same amount of counter space as the larger waffle makers.

6. NoCry Cut Resistant Gloves

For some, cooking hesitancy is connected to their fear of getting injured. The $11 gloves are a great way to make sure that the owies never have a chance to take place.

7. Dezin Electric Hot Pot

The $36 hot pot functions in the same manner as an electric kettle but also works in the same way as a hot pot. It’s great for soups, ramen, and oats. All you have to do is set the temperature, add your ingredients and that is all that’s required.

8. Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker: 6 quart

All the cooking is done for you in one touch, whether you are making rice, soup, meat, or chili. For $89, you get to toss in your ingredients and the pot handles the rest.

9. Microwave Pasta Cooker

Pasta at home? Whenever we want? The device only costs $17? It’s really that simple. There’s no catch at all. Add the noodles and water, put it in the microwave and that’s it.

Happy cooking!
