3. A slow cooker with a tiny bonus slow cooker!! It's also programmable and easily secured for travel. But look at that tiny little one!!!

Walmart

Promising review: "I own several crockpots and this by far is my favorite! I love that you can just set a timer and let it go. It automatically shuts off so you don’t have to be home. It cooks food perfectly even and it doesn’t overcook or burn food. I love that the clips on the side of it hold the lid on so it makes it easily portable. And there’s even a hinge on the back to set the lid in whenever you’re serving yourself the food. I also love that it comes with a little mini cooker so you can make dips in that! What a great slow cooker!"—Candy527

Price: $61.99

4. A Bartesian cocktail machine that is maybe the most luxurious thing I've ever heard of. Who needs the bar when you have a robot bartender at home?

Walmart

What's included: the machine and five glass bottles for spirits (alcohol and cocktail capsules sold separately).

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. Other brands' machines don't allow this."—Gregg

Price: $349.85

5. A Ninja specialty coffee maker so you can totally skip those trips to the coffee shop. You can make every fancy drink you can possibly think of, and all totally customized to your taste.

Walmart

Promising review: "Being a mother to two school-age children and a newborn means my life revolves around coffee at this point! This was an early birthday present and I could not be happier or more satisfied. I was skeptical to ask for a coffee maker that was in this price range but I am so glad I did! There are so many options and the over ice option doesn't melt the ice which I was curious about. Overall I absolutely love this machine and can't wait to create the endless coffee creations it allows."—Ashley

Price: $149

6. A combination air fryer/oven to create the crispiest, crunchiest creations without the mess of frying or the fuss and heat of turning on your real oven.

Walmart

Promising review: "So far we absolutely love this. We have used it every day since we got it. It was a little more expensive, but for the size difference and everything it comes with its definitely worth it!"—simmons08

Price: $199

7. A KitchenAid stand mixer because if there's a kitchen task these puppies can't accomplish, I've yet to see it. Plus, they're so sturdy you won't have to worry about replacing yours in a few years — they're built for a lifetime.

Walmart

What's included: the mixer, stainless-steel bowl, wire whisk, dough hook, flat beater, and pouring shield.

Promising review: "This is my third KitchenAid mixer. The first one was handed down to me approximately 35 years ago. The second was a gift from my brother. This one was a treat to myself!!! Have yet to see a mixer that could outdo a KitchenAid!! Love it and all the gorgeous colors! Thanks!!"—Nonna

Price: $499.99 (available in 14 colors)

8. A SodaStream One Touch for the perfect amount of fizz, every time — no guesswork required.

Walmart

What's included: the SodaStream machine, CO2 canister, two carbonation bottles, and two Bubly flavor drops.

Walmart

What's included: the blender base, pitcher, food processor bowl with chopping and dough assemblies, and a FreshVac cup.

Promising review: "When I saw the features for this FreshVac unit, I was impressed. After using it for several weeks now, I am blown away. The single serve makes the best smoothies I’ve ever had. No foam or froth, just perfectly blended drinks. The main pitcher is great for making frozen yogurt treats for my dogs. And the food processor attachment makes quick work of chopping vegetables for soups. Love this product."—diverden

Price: $267.18

10. An electric pasta maker and extruder for fresh noodles without kneading, mess, or basically any effort. Just like magic!

Walmart

Promising review: "This unit surprised me. It producers pasta of the correct consistency and taste. The onboard scale will display how much flour you have added. It will display how much liquid you'll need to add based on the weight of your flour. It does take practice to make sure the dough is of the correct consistency. The enclosed booklet has photos showing how the dough should form. This is not a light unit it, is somewhat heavy and sturdy. The bottom line is it produces excellent pasta. Cleanup of the machine is very easy but not so much the templates."—Anearlyreview

Price: $166.83 (originally $200.99)

11. An 8-quart Instant Pot because while you may have been introduced to the glories of the original 6-quart, this larger one will make it so much easier to cook even more food in a fraction of the time.

Walmart

Promising review: "So far I've used this as a pressure cooker and slow cooker. It has been a lifesaver. I've cooked chicken and rice, oxtails, ribs, neck bones, stew, beef, and a roast. No complaints yet. I love the fact that it has a stainless steel inner pot. It also comes with an inner rack."—Soloray

Price: $99

12. A cold brew maker that's so aesthetically pleasing it almost doesn't matter if the coffee is good or not. Though rest assured it also makes amazing coffee.

Walmart

Promising review: "I had never tried cold brew coffee before ordering this product, and now I am hooked. This coffee maker is simple to use and easy and quick to clean up after. I love that I can choose the strength of my coffee by using more/less of the concentrate, and it can go in any type of drink — hot, cold, blended. I also tried it with tea and it was so good! I would recommend this product to anyone who drinks coffee or tea on a regular basis."—WhitneyC

15. A toaster oven with a standard toaster on top, because we are truly living in the future here folks.

Walmart

Promising review: "Excellent product! Exactly what I was looking for. I wanted something that wasn't huge but had the dual purpose of a pop up toaster with oven capability. Oven space isn't huge, but this is what I was looking for. This is also one of the only toaster ovens I could find with a pull out crumb tray for ease of cleaning."—Susan

Price: $79.99

16. A self-cleaning juicer so you can get all the benefits of fresh-squeezed juice without the hassle of deep cleaning the machine every single time.

Walmart

Promising review: "This juicer is a really nice clean-looking design and the pulp section is large enough to accommodate a decent amount of fruit. The self clean feature is amazing, the little brush really cleans out all the tiny pieces that usually take forever to wash. And best of all, this juicer is really powerful while at the same time not incredibly loud!"—Yitzchok

Price: $64.92

17. An 11-cup food processor because with that kind of capacity there's nothing you can't shred, puree, chop, or blend. You'll be the King of Processing.

Walmart

Promising review: "I have owned and used a Cuisinart 11-cup food processor for 15+ years. It is a wonderful product and I think a necessary addition to any kitchen. I have never had an issue with any part of this product and for that reason I chose the same one as a gift to my son. They entertain often and love to cook. I know his Cuisinart will be a great help in preparing for those fun times."—Mardy

Price: $149.99 (originally $330)

20. A countertop ice maker for a constant supply of The Good Ice, whether you want to use it for your drink or just to cronch.

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 five colors)

21. An ice cream machine that I think might be just as fancy as the one they have on Chopped. But unlike the chefs, you have way more than 30 minutes to use it, and can crank out restaurant-quality desserts all through the summer months.

Walmart

Promising review: "We purchased this recently and it was a definitely a splurge item but we love it. We have made several batches of ice cream, gelato, sorbet and just made a sherbet today. I don't think we will buy ice cream ever again. We love that you can make more than one batch in a day."—Sammy V

Price: $299.95

22. An electric kettle because as much as I hate to admit it, the British are right to judge Americans for not having kettles. They're so useful and convenient.

Walmart

Promising review: "Love my new electric kettle. It is so pretty and I love the stainless steel. It looks and feels very substantial. Much nicer than my old plastic one. It heats up quickly and looks great on my all white countertop."—Deborah

23. A wine cooler for Official Fancy Adults ONLY. If you need a wine fridge, you are so much more grown up than I will ever be, and I admire you. Teach me your ways.

Walmart

Promising review: "I love this fridge. It's easy to change the temp. I make mead, and I use this fridge to store it. It worked so well for me that I ordered a second fridge for my next batch of mead. Now I don't have to worry about choosing between storing food and mead in my big fridge."—lorna444birds

Price: $261.25

24. A bread machine so you can finally show up all your friends who were making gorgeous sourdough loaves last year. No one needs to know you had a little help.

Walmart

Promising review: "So far I've made a loaf of bread and pizza dough and both came out very well. I really like how clear the instructions were for using this bread maker and the chart that shows how long the process will take until the product is finished. I place it on my glass top stove to prevent it from 'walking' off the counter's edge when it kneads the dough. I would definitely recommend this bread maker!"—Elaine Kim

Price: $85.58

25. A vacuum sealer to make all your bulk purchases and Costco runs last a ton longer. Plus you can sous vide right in the bags!

Walmart

Promising review: "Received this as a birthday gift from my wonderful brother. Absolutely love it. Using it to vacuum seal lettuce and other veggies in half gallon mason jars. It's been two weeks, lettuce is still green and fresh. AMAZING! I leave the FoodSaver on my countertop and using it daily with zipper vacuum seal/reseal bags to store cheese, lunch meat, etc. I've vacuum sealed fresh and frozen sausage, bacon, and chicken. I can see where food will stay fresh longer and save us money. Love it and would recommend it for any size family."—AVernon

Price: $189

26. A conical burr coffee grinder for the smoothest, richest cup imaginable. Burr grinders produce a much more even grind, so you can expect a consistently delicious cup of coffee.

Walmart

Promising review: "I have never had a grinder like this, it is nice that there are the grind setting and the amount setting for larger pots! Usually I can only grind a certain amount and then have to grind more, this is a one-stop shop. The BEST feature is the automatic shut off."—Bethkoop

Price: $199 (originally $575)

29. An enameled cast-iron Dutch oven pretty enough to just leave out on your stove as decoration, but functional enough for soups, stews, bread, and more.

Walmart

Price: $69.90+ (originally $115; available in five colors)
