I love how beautiful I can make my kitchen look with all the different decorations The Pioneer Woman collections have. The cutting board is definitely one I can leave out to decorate my kitchen, and the spoon rest makes my stove area look much more homey with the white and the flower design. I also have been obsessed with smaller kitchen tools, and most of the gadgets included here fit that description, they are small therefore don't take up a lot of space, but they are also cute and effective." —Lindsaylb

15. A five-speed blender to whip up tasty smoothies, shakes, soups, salsa, and more. It has a glass jar and is dishwasher-safe, so cleaning up after is a breeze.

Walmart

Promising review: "I love this blender. I've only had an immersion blender for awhile now and although it is great for soups and smoothies, it isn't great with stronger vegetables or ice is impossible. With this new blender, it works great on everything I have used it for. I especially love that I can now make milkshakes or daiquiris with ease on demand! The setup is easy, just remove from the box and wash all parts with warm water and soap, dry, and plugin and it's ready to use! The motor itself is strong but not overly loud. The stronger the ingredients, ie ice, the louder it tends to be, but I can still hear conversation over the sound of the motor so I'd say it's an improvement over my old blender. The jar is glass instead of plastic so I feel it will hold up better over time." —Mommysamons84

Price: $24.94 (available in five colors)

16. A 6-quart Dutch oven that'll make stews, roasts, casseroles, and more, all in a piece of cookware that will look great on the stove or table.

At less than one third the cost of more expensive brands, I took a chance. So far I have made bread, stews, and braised meat. The Dutch oven works beautifully and cleans up so easily. I have a glass topped stove and found that I have no issues with scratching." —FossilHunter

Walmart

Promising review: "I have been wanting a compact size food processor for quite a while and when I saw this Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Food Processor I just got to have it. It is lightweight and small enough to fit into small corner on the kitchen counter. There are two buttons — chop or grind — which are super easy to use but can do way more than that. Those stainless steel blades are sharp and powerful. I used it to chop scallions and parsley, it came out exactly like how I wanted. It has safely mode where it won't start unless the cover is in place. It totally is worth getting it!" —PO@NYC

Price: $39.95 (originally $49.99; available in four colors)

Walmart

Promising review: "I love this grinder! The settings give me nice coffee to use in a variety of ways: French press, aero press, pour over, and Moka pot. My husband got this for me for my birthday and I cried because I had previously been using a hand grinder (great for the vintage looks but hard on the hands). This is so quick and easy and makes my coffee routine so enjoyable." —Lauren C

Price: $59.95

24. An egg cooker, because even though making soft or hard boiled eggs seems easy, it's really easy to over or under cook them. With this gadget, you can make up to seven perfectly soft/medium/hard boiled eggs or three poached eggs at a time.

Walmart

Promising review: "This is soooo much easier to use than any other method for making hard boiled eggs! I have an Instant Pot and totally prefer this device instead. So easy to use (I fill to the top line of the cup to get harder boiled eggs but even those do not get the grey color on them -—they are just a perfect yellow in about 10 minutes!). I also think the 'stink' is greatly minimized using this egg cooker, which my husband and kids greatly appreciate. This is cheap, works great, takes up little space for storage — no reason not to buy one, so do it!" —MomOfTriplets01

Price: $16.99 (originally $19.99)

25. A mandolin slicer set with five different blade inserts to slice, shred, and julienne fruits and veggies. It has a safety insert and also folds up for easy storage.

Walmart

Promising review: "This was my first experience with a mandolin slicer. I like that the blades are different colors to help you differentiate between the type of slicing you want to do. It was fairly easy and fast to cut sweet potato 'fries.' The size of the pieces were very consistent, especially compared to my usual knife method. Clean up was quick and easy, though the blades are very sharp so caution is required when using/cleaning this item. The storage unit for the blades is very useful. I also tested slicing carrots and apples, both of which sliced up quickly and easily. I highly recommend this item." —Katharina

Price: $19.97

26. An electric kettle to quickly heat up a liter of water to help you enjoy coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or any warm drink with a push of a button in a few minutes. It also has an automatic shutoff feature to prevent any accidental scorching.

Walmart

Promising review: "This is one of the most used appliances in my kitchen. I didn't know I needed it until I bought it on a whim. My goodness what a wonderful thing to have for a quick cup of tea. It works perfectly and it's a great value. Makes two cups of tea or cocoa, or instant coffee even. Soup anyone? You'll wish you'd bought it sooner and wonder how you survived without it as long as you did!" —rnochick

Price: $19.96

27. A digital food scale so that when you're following recipes, you don't have to guess how much a few ounces, grams, milliliters, or pounds of any particular ingredient actually is.

Walmart

Promising review: "I am very pleased with this scale. I have needed/wanted one for years, and never got around to buying one. This is a great tool and piece of kitchen equipment. I no longer have to rely on my 'best guess' as to whether my items are about the same weight - now I know they are all the same. It's very easy to use, very simple to understand and very convenient. I am impressed at all the quality for a most reasonable price." —workingmaven

Price: $11.48 (originally $19.79, available in seven colors)

28. The Pioneer Woman measuring spoons and scoops to add some colorful charm to your drawers and your meal prep time.

Promising review: "These are absolutely adorable! I love them! I have one of the scoops in the flour canister, one in the sugar canister, and another in a rice canister. The spoons are so cute too. I bought a set for myself and another as a gift. Love!" —Maya

Price: $17.98 for eight pieces

29. An ice cream maker, for that next time you have a sweet tooth. You can satisfy your dessert craving by making up to a quart of ice cream, sorbet, custard, and other frozen treats in 20 minutes.

Walmart

Promising review: "I have been utilizing the recipes that come with it and made chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and butter pecan ice cream so far. It is so easy to make ice cream that I no longer buy ice cream. The key to any kitchen device is to keep it handy so that you will actually use it. It takes me only 25 to 30 minutes to make ice cream and that includes the 15 to 20 minutes of auto-churning. So easy!" —LoriK

Price: $69.95 (available in three colors)

30. A Cuisinart toaster oven that not only bakes, broils, and toasts, but can also air fry your food. It's faster than waiting for your giant oven to heat up, and takes up relatively little counter space given how much it can do.

Walmart

Promising review: "It's a good combo device to have. I use mine for so many things baking, air frying, and toasting. I use it at least five times a week and with the ease of operating this device we have stopped buying frozen foods like French fries, etc. and we started making fresh ones at home. Also it relaxes about three other things on my counter and I don't have to turn on a big oven to make small batch of food for myself. We love it. It's a bit pricey, but for my use it's worth it." —HetP

Price: $199

31. And a juicer – it fits whole foods so you can skip paying for expensive bottles at the store and make your choice of healthy juice in a matter of seconds at home.

Walmart

Promising review: "I have been wanting a juicer for a while, and was always hesitant to purchase one thanks to their reputation of being pretty expensive. When I heard about this juicer, I spent about two days reading through reviews and finally decided to purchase it. I couldn't be happier. It is everything I expected and more. It makes tons of juice. It's easy to clean. It fits entire fruits and vegetables inside. It's honestly one of the best, and smartest, appliance choices I have ever made. You need to get this if you're like me and are looking for a great starting point to enter the juicing world." —juicelova

Price: $69.99
