The best part about growing up is finding a new appreciation for household products. It makes us a little sad to realize we’re more excited about a new dish rack instead of a toy of some kind, but let’s enjoy this aging milestone! If you need to update your kitchen to match all your *adult* goals, then you need to look at these Amazon products for your kitchen!
1. Pan organizer
The worst part about putting away the dishes is finding room to stack everything. Most of the time, the dishes come crashing out of the cabinet, or they don’t stack well on top of each other, especially if you have a mismatched set of pots and pans. Do yourself a favor and order this inexpensive Amazon product to help you stay organized. You can stack more than two or three pans together, your dishes will be easier to put away, and you’ll be surprised at how much cabinet space this opens up for you.
2. French press coffee maker
If you love coffee and you’ve been spending all your money on k-cups and drive thrus, then you need to update your kitchen and your tastes! A French press is a wonderful device because you can enjoy the tastiest cup of hot coffee you will ever have for very little effort and money. Get a nice blend from the grocery store and have it ground on a coarse setting. Then, you put the grounds in this beautiful stainless steel press with boiling water for five minutes, press down the grounds, and pour! A French press makes for a better cup of coffee because it brews by sitting in the hot water rather than hot water streaming through it. All the essential oils and aromas from the coffee pour into your cup rather than getting trapped in the coffee filter. Amazon has tons of other French presses to choose from, but I recommend this delightful model to upgrade your kitchen.
3. Knife set
Have you been using a hodge-podge set of knives since college? Or the knife set your parents gave to you when they upgraded? Well guess what, it’s time for you to upgrade your kitchen with a better knife set. Take a look at this Farberware stainless steel set from Amazon. This is one of the best knife block Amazon products because it looks sleek, functions well, and it’s affordable. Maybe meal prepping wouldn’t be so hard if you had a knife set like this to make it easier?
4. Smoothie blender
Part of being an adult and upgrading your kitchen means ditching unhealthy and processed breakfast options and skipping the drive thru. Improve your health and kitchen by ordering this Oster blender! I have a pink one myself, and it has served me well for three years now. Throw in some frozen fruit, your dairy product of choice, and blend it up. Once it’s done, you can switch out the blender cap for a drinking top and take the cup on the go! A blender and portable smoothie cup all in one? You definitely need this. It’s easy to clean, affordable, and one of the best Amazon products for your kitchen.
5. Wooden utensil set
Your cheap plastic spoons and spatulas need to retire. Those poor utensils have probably survived your dorm room days, and you need to upgrade. Make your kitchen beautiful and sophisticated with these natural teak wood utensils. They’re made of hard and sturdy wood, so they will last for quite awhile and food won’t stick to them as easily. It’s best to hand wash wooden utensils, but the experience of cooking with them and having them on display next to the stove will make that little bit of extra work well worth it.
6. Silicone macaron mat
Macarons are all the craze right now! Not to be confused with macaroons, these delicate French cookies melt in your mouth. Instead of spending money on macarons at the local cafe, make your own! You can experiment with unique flavors and save yourself some cash. One of the crucial steps to making macarons requires consistency. All the cookies have to be the same size so they look uniform and pretty. Make your life easier by ordering this Amazon product! The silicone mat is oven-safe, and you won’t have to worry about your cookies sticking. Most people might use parchment paper, but you can help the environment and prevent unnecessary waste by ordering this reusable silicone mat. Make your cookies, eat those cookies, and feel absolutely no guilt! At least, no guilt when it comes to your wallet and the environment. Your diet may not appreciate them.
7. Multi-purpose chopper
Meal prepping saves you so much time during your busy week, but it’s difficult to dedicate a few hours on the weekend to nothing but chopping food and packing it up for the week. Make your life ten times easier with a multi-purpose chopper like this one! You can chop uniform pieces of peppers and onions, turn your squash into noodles, prep some orange juice, separate eggs, and so much more. The cleaning part may take a hot minute, but consider all the time this gadget will save for you when it comes to chopping and prepping. It’s time to upgrade your kitchen with this hot Amazon product for an affordable price.
8. Ice cube molds
If you like to make specialty drinks or want to make a normal drink look classy, then you need an ice mold to step up your game. Amazon offers endless mold shapes, but if you’re looking for a simple design, then you need to order this diamond ball shape ice mold. Dress up a glass of iced tea or add a special touch to that mojito. You’ll impress your guests or just make self-care night more fun with this Amazon product.
9. Copper cookware
This might be a pricier upgrade, but aren’t you tired of supposedly non-stick cookware failing you in the kitchen? Or do you still have the mismatched collection of various pots and pans from the dorm room days or your parents? It’s time to get yourself a new set, and copper cookware is the Amazon product for you! I have copper cookware as well, and it has changed the game. It’s truly nonstick and I don’t have to use butter or oil to keep my food from sticking. I can make sunny-side up eggs without even a small teaspoon of butter! This will make clean up easier, and your food will be so much healthier. This might be a product to save up for, but it will be worth it.
10. Ultimate dish rack
I’ve seen this image floating around on the internet, and you won’t believe how excited I was to find this Amazon product! This is the most expensive item on the list, and you will definitely have to save for it or put it on a Christmas list. However, it’s time to upgrade your kitchen sink. A lot of the Amazon products I suggested in this article should be handwashed rather than stuffed in the dishwasher. So, you need a dish rack to keep up with that. Also, aren’t you tired of piling clean dishes in the right side of the sink? Is your soap battling with your dish sponge for space? You need to make your life easier, your kitchen prettier, and your dishes cleaner. This is the ultimate dish rack, and it will definitely take your kitchen up a notch.
