When I’m home, I spend most of my time in my kitchen.
Between prepping snacks for baseball games, making meals for my family and shooting baking videos for Just Jill, it isn’t always easy to take a break!
Don’t get me wrong… I love cooking and baking. But without the right tools, it can be time-consuming. Luckily, I’ve discovered a few must-have kitchen gadgets that make my life so much easier.

For Veggies and More
Prepping vegetables for a home-cooked meal? Here are some helpful tools to keep in your kitchen.
For a low-carb twist on your go-to pasta dish, you can incorporate some vegetables! This vegetable spiralizer makes it easy to swap regular noodles for veggie noodles with the simple turn of a handle.
Say goodbye to slicing herbs with a giant knife. Use these simple multi-blade herb scissors instead.
There’s also this double-bladed herb chopper if you’re looking for something that looks more like a classic knife.
Pitting is always more complicated than I think it will be… Luckily, this cherry and olive pitter makes it super easy. It’s also dishwasher safe for easy clean-up!
I never thought I’d be so in love with a basic kitchen gadget… but here we are! I adore my Butter Boy because it makes buttering corn super super simple. Plus, how cute is he?
The Best Baking Gadgets
I started baking in my early teen years and haven’t stopped since! Here are a few kitchen gadgets that will turn you into the best baker in town.
Long gone are the days of mixing runny pancake batter in a measuring cup. This Wiskware mixer includes a little metal ball to ensure everything is perfectly blended. And it also has an easy-pour top to eliminate messiness.
If you’re looking for a way to use that batter, you can pour it into this mini waffle maker. If you ask me, the small size makes breakfast time more fun!
If you don’t have kiddos around to lick the whisks, they can be complicated to clean. With this whisk wiper, all of the batter comes off in seconds.
Cooking Gadgets and Tools
Whether you’re grilling, baking something in the oven or pan-frying your favorite food, these kitchen gadgets will make the job easier.
No matter what, you should always have a meat thermometer in your kitchen. Even if you’re a seasoned chef, estimating isn’t always easy!
Calling all hard-boiled egg fans! This Dash egg cooker makes six eggs in just minutes. But it doesn’t stop there. You can also make soft boiled eggs, poached eggs, or scrambled eggs, too!
Colanders can take up a lot of space in the kitchen which is why I love this convenient clip-on pan strainer instead. It’s super compact, easy to store, and doesn’t budge when you’re straining.
Get the perfect shredded meat every time with these Bear Paws Shredder Claws. They’re melt-proof, dishwasher safe and a huge time saver!
Kitchen Gadgets For Your Drinks
Cracking open a bottle or enjoying your morning brew? Don’t do it without these nifty finds.
This whisk and milk frother will bring the cafe to your kitchen by turning mik into a frothy topping for your morning coffee.
But if you’re more of a night owl, you can pour yourself a glass after using this automatic wine opener from Brookstone. It conveniently opens wine bottles with the click of a button.
Cleaning Gadgets for Your Kitchen
I can’t stand it when my kitchen gets dirty… but it happens! Luckily, these affordable cleaning finds will make it sparkle.
Similar to the Butter Boy above, this fun little character is bound to make your life easier. It’s called the Angry Mama microwave cleaner. All you have to do is add water and vinegar to the top and set your microwave for 5-8 minutes. Then, you can wipe it clean with no hassle!
Instead of opening your dish soap bottle every time you have to clean your plates, you can use this convenient soap dispensing dish brush instead.
But if your pots and pans need a little extra scrubbing, be sure to reach for these Scrub Daddy sponges. I always have a few in my house!
I hope these kitchen gadgets make your cooking, baking, and cleaning experience a little easier. A few of them have made a huge difference in my own home!
