Adjustable rolling pin

You're probably wondering why it took you so long to purchase an adjustable rolling pin. How often have you baked in your kitchen and wished for a little more freedom of movement? Well, now you don't have to. This clever device can measure up to different sizes to suit your needs.

Burger press

Another hidden gem that every kitchen needs: a burger press. Making homemade burgers is fun for the whole family. It's healthier and allows you to flavor it as you like. It's also a lot cheaper than ordering from your favorite burger joint. But getting that perfectly rounded shape can be a challenge, especially if you don't have the steadiest of hands. Avoid letting the bun fall apart in your slippery fingers by using a burger press. Place your ground beef in the device and press down for an even, perfect, round burger bun.

Chest freezers

You would be crazy to turn down a butter cutter, especially since in order to save money it is best to buy butter in large quantities rather than small packets. However, this poses a problem when baking as you are trying to get an accurate measurement of 1 cup of butter.

It's so incredibly easy and it makes life so much easier.

Heating knife

It doesn't cost you a lot to invest a heating knife and you'll be able to get a clean cut of baked goods fresh out of the oven without making a mess or spending an unnecessary amount of time heating up your knife.

Splash-proof glasses
