1. An automatic pasta maker to make you feel like you're in the Italian countryside when really you're in your small apartment kitchen. This gadget is able to make eight different types of pasta perfectly from start to finish — in just 15 minutes.

Walmart

It comes with all the tools you need to make the different shapes plus cups for adding water and flour.

Promising review: "Received this yesterday and made fettuccini noodles for dinner last night. Using my digital scale, I was able to measure the flour and water exactly, resulting in a perfect result with the kneading process and automatic moving into the extrusion process. Can't wait to try it again. Clean up is long but using the cleaning tools included it went well. Pasta was extremely tasty." —Pineapple

Walmart

Promising review: "Love, love, love this kitchen cart. I just got it yesterday and put it together in about an hour with no issues. It was the easiest assembly of anything I have bought. Lots of storage and the top is a very nice quality. The style and color match my kitchen perfectly and I couldn't be happier with this purchase." —Babesthecat

3. A rice cooker, because you're hopeless when it comes to cooking anything, even rice. Just follow the instructions and you'll have a perfectly cooked side dish to compliment any meal!

Walmart

It comes with a spatula and measuring cup!

Promising review:"This is really a very good brand of rice cooker. I've been using Tiger JNP rice cookers for more than 20 years and this is my third one. We leave the rice cooker in warm mode for 24 hours so my family can have hot rice anytime they want to eat. This is a must-have for your kitchen. Although a little bit expensive compared to other rice cookers, it's worth it; durable and lasts for a long time." —Dottie

Price: $139.59

Promising review: "This cookware is great quality! I was really impressed with the non-stick capability while cooking and how easy it is to clean. I highly recommend this product. It comes with a size for just about everything you want to cook." —Katie

Price: $159.99

6. A Cuisinart bread maker, because hand-kneading was so April 2020. Welcome to the future of bread making; you'll never purchase store-bought again!

Walmart

This bread maker is programed with 16 menu options and options for three loaf sizes and crust colors.

Promising review: "Easiest, most successful bread I've ever made. I purchased it so I could be in control of the additives and ingredients that are in bread. I can also make bread whenever I need and not be concerned about what is available on the shelf at the store. The bonus I didn't expect is a wide variety of specialty breads that I can make. There are so many recipes in the book that I can't wait to use. There are more available on social media. This is the best small appliance I have bought since my Cuisinart toaster oven air fryer." —Lljp

Price: $179.95

7. A food dehydrator to make your favorite snacks right at home! This is one of those gadgets you'll pull out and use for many, many years.

Walmart

Promising review: "I have had this same dehydrater for almost 25 years. We used it for jerky and dried fruit (apples are the best). After all this time we finally burnt up the old one. I was amazed to find the exact same product available. I hope this one lasts almost as long." —Sissy One

Price: $107.81

8. A new table because you deserve to splurge, and your kitchen could use an update. This is the perfect, functional addition to a small space.

Walmart

Promising review: "This was easy to put together. This set is well-made with simple instructions. If you follow the instructions and don't completely tighten the screws right away, assembly will go much faster. It only took me a few hours to do alone. I like the color of the wood and the simplicity of the design. I have a smaller apartment and this works nicely for the space that I have. I think this is a steal for the price and I am happy with my purchase." —Kelli

Price: $239

9. A hand blender that's perfect for blending your favorite smoothies, protein shakes, or possibly margaritas! This blender style allows for finer blending, ideal for those of us who don't enjoy chunks.

Walmart

It comes with the handle, blending, masher, whisk, and chopper attachments, and a beaker.

Promising review:  "I made Bolognese sauce and this power stick certainly made short work of it. It puréed my sauce so quickly and easily. Can't wait to use it for all my holiday cooking needs such as puréeing my pumpkin butternut squash soup, gravy, and sauces and for ease of chopping veggies! A wonderful helpful addition to my kitchen utensils. Chop, blend, and purée with ease." —Abbelladi

Price: $159.95

10. An electric tea kettle, because "boiling" water in the microwave isn't cutting it anymore. Water boils in minutes, perfect when you're in a rush for a cup of tea.

Walmart

You can schedule your water to boil through the kettle's linked app, and you can even adjust its temperature.

Promising review: "Well, this kettle is definitely different, and I like it. This kettle is a change from the standard kettle used to heat water on the stove. It is great! I love the features, especially the green tea function. How cool is that! If you're looking to upgrade your kettle, the Cosori kettle will not disappoint." —Lana97

Price: $111.36

11. A SimpleHuman trash can for an understated splurge that you'll use all the time. It also has dual compartments where you're able to separate recycling and trash. I'll take one, please!

Walmart

Promising review: "We love our new SimpleHuman! It just couldn't be simpler. Lots more capacity than our old one, which we still use in another room, but now we have to stop throwing the junk on the old can when the lid is closed!" —WalmartCustomer

Price: $199.99

12. A Cuisinart ice cream and frozen yogurt maker so you can DIY when your sweet tooth takes over. You won't be running to the store because this makes your favorite icy treat in 20 minutes or less!

Walmart

Promising review:  "Very easy to use and it comes with a recipe book packed full of recipes from simple with on-hand ingredients to a little more complex, like custards and ice cream cakes.

15. A vacuum sealing gadget, because you buy in bulk even when you live alone or with a small family (I am guilty as charged). Believe it or not, this will save you money when it comes to how much you spend on plastic bags.

Walmart

Promising review: "My husband and I wanted a food saver for years but was fearful to purchase because I didn't want to buy something like this and then not be able to figure out how to use. Well I broke down and purchased about a month ago and I'm glad I did. So easy to use and now I'm able to buy meat in bulk and or on a hot sale and be assured that it will remain fresh in the freezer. I LOVE IT." —spanky66

Price: $110.48 (originally $145)

16. An electronic cocktail machine that makes such delicious drinks, your entire thought process on cocktails will change. All you have to do is insert a capsule, choose your desired strength, and press "start." Yes, it's that easy to have the perfect cocktail.

Walmart

Promising review: "This thing is awesome! Initial cost is high but when you consider that you do not have to keep all of the ingredients for multiple drinks, it actually makes sense. The pods are high quality and produce fantastic drinks! I also like that I can choose the brand and flavor of alcohol to improve the drinks or change the flavor a little. The other brands of machines don't allow this." —Gregg

Price: $349.85

17. A Farberware air fryer to make getting dinner on the table in time more effortless than ever. It cooks anything in no time and is absolutely worth the hype.

Walmart

Promising review: "This was a great purchase. When I am at work and I am running late to get home to make dinner, this air fryer cooked my fried chicken so fast with no oil base. The taste of the chicken was so good and juicy. My kids can make their chicken nuggets and fries for lunch." —AwesomeLadyLasVegas

Price: $103.56

18. A sleek 45-piece set of dishes that are worth every penny you spend on them, since you'll use them every day. This set is a step above the rest because it also comes with serving pieces — need I say more?

Of the original set I own, only one has broken and one has chipped, and I dropped both of them, causing the damage. I highly recommend them." —Heather

Price: $97.93

Walmart

Promising review: "I am huge Ninja fan, and this specialty coffee maker did not disappoint, It has all the features I want, it can single brew in different sizes, and it has a frother for when I am feeling a bit more fancy. I like the size and style; it's very modern and fits in perfectly with my other appliances. Making coffee it's a breeze. I love that the water reservoir is removable so no spilling water." —Nanabuys

Price: $129

Promising review: "I had been eyeing a KitchenAid stand mixer for literally 10 years and finally made the purchase!

Walmart

Promising review: "Just started using it and have not used all the features, but have loved using it as a slow cooker and to steam artichokes. Easy cleaning/nonstick interior pot, with handles both on the interior and the exterior sections for easy handling. Understandable buttons for working it. Exactly what I wanted." —Patti In West Sac

Price: $129.95+ (available in three sizes)

22. Or a smart pressure cooker that has bells and whistles so advanced you'll wonder how it's under $200. This gadget has 300+ presets and guided recipes, pairs with your smartphone, and so much more. Pick your jaw up off the floor!

Walmart

Chicken was tender and not dried out and the rice turned out perfect! I really like that it is automatic with releasing the pressure. Great buy. I know I'll get TONS of use out of it!!!" —Amybeth

23. A grill for those who don't have the luxury of a backyard; never fear, there's one for indoors. Sometimes the stovetop and oven don't meet your needs, so that's why a counter-friendly grill is such a great investment!

Walmart

This convertible grill with reversible, dishwasher-safe plates can be used in six modes: a contact grill, a panini press, a full griddle, a full BBQ grill, half grill/half griddle mode, and a top melt. Also, it's got a drip tray and a digital timer!

Promising review: "I was so excited to get this and it sure didn't disappoint. Very easy to use, easy to clean, and seems to cool off quickly. The sync button I think is my favorite. Downfall is if you use the timer it will keep cooking after the timer goes off. Other than that there are no complaints. I cooked four steaks at 355 and they were done in less that 10 minutes. Two thumbs up and I fully recommend. No need for a grill anymore with this thing." —Carebearkiller5

Price: $149

24. A wine fridge that adds luxury to your kitchen and is worth the splurge. You can adjust the temperature, it holds 34 bottles of wine, and it has slide-out shelves. Perfect for your summer sipping needs.

Now I don't have to worry about choosing between storing food and mead in my big fridge." —lorna444birds

Price: $220

Price: $250

26. A new microwave, because yours has seen better days. This microwave includes 10 power levels, six pre-set cooking options, and best of all, a child-safe lock! Reheating leftovers has never looked so sleek.

Walmart

Promising review: "It is quite large compared to my older Hamilton Beach microwave — it really takes up a lot of space, but I love all the space it gives me on the inside, so I rearranged my kitchen countertops to make room. This microwave is awesome has lots of features, most of which I haven't even tried yet, so may update later." —WalmartCustomer

Price: $140.62

27. A Cuisinart toaster oven that does so much more than toast bread. This compact piece is the perfect solution during the hot summer months when you don't want to use the large stove. You can roast, boil, or bake anything in it!

Walmart

Promising review: "I bought this since my current oven is not working properly and I can't find a range that I like to replace it. So rather than buy something I don't like, I bought this as a temporary replacement. I wanted something with a convection oven feature and this baby does not disappoint. It does take up a lot of counter space but I expected that when I bought it. I like the fact that I can use most of my bakeware in it and don't have to buy special size pans. The pizza stone is an added bonus (make sure you season it before using it). I love that it preheats super quick. It cuts my cooking time in half. If you looking for a work horse of a toaster oven, then this is it." —Robyn316

Price: $199.99

Walmart

This includes a sparkling water maker, a CO2 cylinder, two BPA-free reusable carbonating bottles, and two bottles of flavored Bubly drops.

Promising review: "Great product, easy to use. Don't overfill the bottle or you'll have a mess to clean up. But I use it mainly for water and hold the button for six seconds and it comes out perfect. The two bottles allow me to keep them filled and in the fridge until I'm ready to pour a cup. Very pleased." —SelfmadeOneX

Price: $110.99 (available in four colors)

29. A Cuisinart food processor that'll make your cooking space feel like it's built for a professional. You can use this to dice ingredients or make pesto, hummus, butters, and so much more!

Walmart

Promising review: "Love this food processor!! The new food processor is amazing for so many reasons! It does so much more than the old version and it's a lot lighter, so easy to move around and store. I've had for a month and love it! And I am looking forward to trying all of the wonderful attachments! It's a wonderful upgrade!" —Meg S

Price: $169.80+ (available in two colors)

31. An ice maker so you always have some ready to use in coffee or cocktails. This is a must for those of us who don't have built-in machines.

Walmart

Promising review: "Love this machine! I followed the directions and it works like a charm. The first batch of ice comes out kinda weird but don't worry, let it keep running and the ice cubes get better! Don't open the door too much to help the cool air stay in. Also, use cold water or add a few of the ice cubes to the reservoir water and it will make ice bigger and faster. Overall very happy with this ice machine." —Andrea

Price: $99+ (originally $114.99+; available in three colors)
