A black and silver digital air fryer oven so you can bake, brown, and crisp all your fave goodies, getting that delicious deep fried taste you crave without the extra oil.



Promising review: “I can’t believe I have lived so long without this! I hesitated to buy this because of the price. After owning it for a little over a month now, I would pay twice as much for it. It is that good! I use it at least twice a day. The air fryer cycle is great for frozen snacks like french fries, cheese sticks, chicken fingers, etc. Your food not only cooks thoroughly, but crisps as well. FYI: This would be great in a camper next summer. It is lightweight and totally portable. It would also be the perfect gift for a newlywed couple or a single person living in a small apartment. I would suggest that you have parchment paper for appetizers or vegetable roasting, etc., and a small oil mister or fine brush for lightly coating the air fryer basket.” —Walmart reviewer

Promising review: “I’ve been cooking and utilizing what I had on hand in addition to my cutting board to stabilize and sort the ingredients. I feel as though I’ve received the best gift ever in this multifunctional cutting board set. Cutting, sorting, grating and measuring all from one device is a chef’s dream. Having this has enhanced my kitchen tools immensely. Especially since the trays stack and store directly onto the board. Dishwasher friendly.” —Walmart reviewer

A 22-piece knife set that is easy to care for. Amazingly, these razor sharp beauties never require a sharpening block. They come with a classic woodgrain storage block to display on you counter, along with a set of five measuring spoons, three spatulas, and universal shears.


Promising review: “I used this set to cut bread, tomatoes, potatoes, lettuce, beets, squash, raw meat, cooked steak, and a multitude of other things. Overall, I must say that I was quite satisfied with their performance. The scissors that are included are also very sharp and work well cutting open packages, as well as more typical kitchen shear duties like cutting chicken joints or skin. Just don’t forget to thoroughly sanitize them after use like any other knife. The knife block is beautiful solid wood that is well-constructed. ” —Walmart reviewer

A rotating waffle maker with dual cooking plates just like the ones they have at the best hotel breakfast buffets. Serve it up Belgian style.


Promising review: “Whoever invented these double-flip waffle makers needs a medal. Not only does this cook two at a time, it cooks them to perfection. The machine comes with a drip tray which is smart and the actual batter trays are pretty deep so they almost look like Belgian style which I love. If you want a reliable waffle maker that cooks two perfect waffles at a time I highly recommend this.” —Walmart reviewer

A handheld grater and microplane that glides oh-so-smoothly over that block of Gouda you’ve been meaning to finely shred. The stainless-steel blades are corrosion-resistant *and* laser-etched for precision.


Promising review: “The soft grip handle feels so sturdy and comfortable in your hand and doesn’t slip when using. The size is so perfect for large or small batches of grated foods. What I really love about this handheld grater is you have two different sizes of stainless steel cutting surfaces which gives you the option of the size of grating you want for your food. These blades are very sharp, making it perfect for all my grating needs. I first tried the grater on some lemons from my lemon tree. Whether I’m grating potatoes, carrots, chocolate, or even the softest of cheeses, it’s so easy to use and grates them perfectly. I was so impressed at the fact that there is no bending or flexing of the grater when grating. Nice and sturdy!” —Walmart reviewer

Price: $7.97 (available in two colors)

Promising review: “This is a great colander that serves its purposes well when you are washing fruits and veggies. I’ve also used it to run pasta under cold water. It works well then too. I really like the sturdiness of the metal as well as the flower pattern design. The stand is very handy when trying to let water drip through. All in all, this is a great addition to my kitchen.” —Walmart reviewer

Cord storage spot is a nice bonus too. Those are both features our old popper didn’t have.” —Alicia

A perfect egg maker with dishwasher safe parts that cooks up to 14 easy-to-peel hard boiled eggs every single time. How very egg-cellent.


Promising review: “Should have bought this egg maker years ago! Really enjoy stuffed eggs but never could manage to keep all the egg halves whole after boiling on stovetop. All halves cut perfectly now that I use my new egg maker. The yolks are the most beautiful yellow for the first time ever! Based on how perfectly the hard boiled eggs came out, I don’t think I will be disappointed with how the omelets/poached eggs will cook.” —Najo

Price: $21.98 (originally $45.99)


A matte black two-slice touchscreen toaster by Drew Barrymore made with long-lasting steel accents and a cool touch-activated display that deserves its own Instagram.


Promising review: “I just love Drew Barrymore and her new sleek line of appliances. I love my toaster. It looks nice on my counter since it is all black and displays nothing until you turn it on. Once it’s on, it shows the start button and once it’s pushed, all the toaster displays will appear to start you up. So innovative and definitely trendy. I love that once you are done the toaster goes back to black and all you see is the gold B. It cooks great and is so easy to use. It can be used for bagels too, which is so nice because most toasters don’t accommodate for bagels. I highly recommend Drew’s line.” —Ramilia

Price: $39.96 (available in two colors)

I love that it also spins for easy access. It is a nice looking shiny silver and a perfect addition to my new kitchen!” —Walmart reviewer

Price: $19.97


An airtight, leakproof, rectangular food storage container featuring a unique four-hinge locking system for freshness that lasts longer. Meal prep has never been such a breeze.


Promising review: “I can always tell a good storage container by putting spaghetti sauce in it and then washing it in the dishwasher. This one left no red sauce residue on it. The snap lid holds the sauce upside down without leaking; very stylish and washes terrifically. Love the clear container so you can see what’s inside. This container is better than glass as it is lighter. Would definitely purchase more.” —Walmart reviewer

Price: $7.99 (originally $13)
