Promising review: "This can opener is the absolute best I have ever used! It sits on my cabinet right along with the other essentials (my coffee pot). The can opener is so easily operated and leaves a nice smooth edge on the side of the can, not on the top. This provides greater safety for the operator. Love this can opener and would highly recommend it. Excellent product!!!" —Lennon

8. A Keurig K-Duo coffee maker for mornings when you can't decide if you need one or 12 cups of caffienated goodness.

Walmart

This product is absolutely brilliant and a must-have for any caffeine consumer. Brew one cup using a K-Cup pod or brew up to 12 cups using the carafe with ground beans of your choice. Here's the real genius: It comes with an automatic shut-off feature that'll turn your brewer off one minute after the last single cup brew and the heating plate two hours after the last carafe brew.

Promising review: "This coffee maker works perfectly for one person or several. Right out of the box it was very simple to set up. It comes with a coffee pot if you're needing several cups. Having a choice between how much coffee to make is going to save us lots of money on wasted pots of coffee. You can put your coffee mug under the pod side and you can remove the bottom tray on this side to accommodate your taller travel mugs. The drip coffee side has a warming plate to keep your coffee a nice temperature. Both sides have an eight, 10, or 12 selection. It has a larger water reservoir than the pod only versions for less filling. For the pods this is for ounces and for the drip coffee side it is for cups desired. Simply fill up the large water reservoir, add your coffee, and select cups or pods then the size. It starts working quickly to make a delicious cup of coffee." —Heavenfl

Price: $99

So, thought it couldn't hurt to try this out with the low price. I can now buy the Starbuck's coffee beans, grind them up at home, and make my cold brew using this cold brew maker. It is sooooo good. I highly recommend this. Wish I would have came across this a long time ago. I have had no problems with it. Super easy to use. Definitely recommend." —Katie81

Price: $12.88 (available in two colors)

10. An extra-large air fryer to enjoy the same delicious taste of your favorite fast food chains without the guilt of all the added oil — and in just a click of a button. McDonald's, honey, move aside, there's a new and improved fast food place in town.

Promising review: "I bought this one month ago and wish I'd done so years ago. It's perfect for making my smoothies — I can drink out of the same cup, clean up takes seconds, and I can make a small batch at a time (instead of being forced to make large amounts with a regular blender). Also love that it takes up so little space. I plan to order the whisk attachment to make homemade shea butter cream." —Lara A

Walmart

This rack is both mold- and moisture-proof, and will save you tons of room on your counter.

Promising review: "OMG I love this! This was super easy to put together even though it doesn't come with directions. Took me about five minutes to figure out the bottom water drain spout doesn't click into the bottom rack. There is a screw for it so don't do what I did. lol. I love, love, LOVE the space this is saving me! Usually I have to put a towel down next to my dish strainer to fit all my dishes. It just made my counter look so cluttered until the dishes were dry. I have a very busy toddler so I always let the air dry. The design is simple, not bulky and looks nice. My other strainer didn't really fit next to the sink right since I have a corner sink. Because of that the water never drained properly. Completely in love with this one! Definitely recommend it if you're looking to save counter space and not spend a lot on some fancy thing to dry your dishes." —Ashley

Walmart

Promising review: "I bought this for my mom as a gift, she lives by herself. She was so excited to try this as she was tired of using multiple pans. She said this three-section skillet is amazing! It allows her to cook three different foods at the same time. The compartments are separate enough to prevent the foods from mixing, which helps her create the perfect complete meal for herself. The pan is built well and the handle is very sturdy. The pan also does a good job evenly heating everything in the three sections so that everything can cook well at the same time. All in all, it's very simple to clean and store. I recommend it to anyone who wants a simple yet organized pan that you can use to make a full meal while saving time. She's satisfied." —Charlyn
