It's Prime Day! So check out these things for your kitchen
This gadget has been all over TikTok in the past week and it does look like a great idea! It suctions to your counter and can grate cheese, veggies and nuts. It is safer than a mandoline, since your fingers are far away from the blades. It is also easy to disassemble to wash. Get yours on Amazon UK or Amazon US.
Mini waffle maker
I bought this a few years back since I live in a small place, and having a waffle maker is ridiculous if you don't have the space to put it. Well, this little guy is so small that no matter how tiny your place is, you have space for it. It heats up quickly and the non-stick surface makes it easy to clean and easy to use. It makes waffles the size of a classic Eggo. Get yours on Amazon UK or Amazon US.
Silverware organizer – Drawer space saver
If you're like me and you have very little precious drawer space, then you need this Joseph Joseph silverware organizer. Instead of stacking things one next to each other, they are slightly overlapping. This can save you half of the space of a traditional cuttlery organizer. Get yours on Amazon UK or Amazon US.
In the spirit of saving space, whisks always take too much space in a drawer. They are also hard to clean: this one solves both of these issues by being collapsable. The Joseph Joseph whisk comes in a variety of colour and will save both your time washing it, and the space in your drawers. Get yours on Amazon UK or Amazon US.
Ok I promise this is the last Joseph Joseph product on this list. But they are so brilliant at kitchen stuff.
The "Elevate" tools set comes with a cute rotating stand and has 6 tools that have a little piece that holds them up when you put them down. This means you don't have to have a spoon rest for your dirty tools while you're cooking. It comes in a variety of colours like black, grey, rainbow and white. Get yours on Amazon UK or Amazon US.
I've had one of these at home since I was a child and it is both useful and very fun to use. It helps you fish out pickles from the jar without having to put your entire arm in there when there's only a few left. It sounds weird but if you like pickles, you need one. Mine is almost 30 years old and still works great, so that's money well spent! Get yours on Amazon UK or Amazon US.
Angry Mama and Cool Mom
These adorable things are made to help you keep your kitchen clean. Angry Mama works with water and vinegar. Heat her up for 7 minutes in the microwave and she will steam up the insides, making it easy to wipe clean after. Cool Mom works with lemon juice and kills bad odours in your fridge. Get yours on Amazon UK or Amazon US.
Anti-garlic smells "soap" bar
If you like cooking with garlic like I do, you know it will make your hands smell like garlic. and that soap will not always be enough to get rid of the smell. It turns out that rubbing your hands on stainless steel can help get rid of the garlic smell. This bar, shaped like a soap, will allow you to always have a piece of stainless steel available for you to use in case of garlicky hands. Get yours on Amazon UK or Amazon US.
If you live with other people, or if your workplace has a shared dishwasher, you need one of these. It is a little magnet that allows you to show what the status of the dishwasher is. It can say "Clean", "Running" or "Dirty". This will stop any confusion and will indicate to everyone if it's ok to put your dirty dishes in at the moment. No more putting dirty dishes in a clean dishwasher by mistake. Note that this is one example, but they come in a variety of styles so you can find the one that fits your aesthetics. Get yours on Amazon UK or Amazon US.
