Hope you have some room in your cupboards. I’ve asked my friends for their favorite cheap kitchen gadgets, and I’ve also made a shopping list for myself.

1. Strawberry Corer
Ok, if you’re allergic to strawberries, I feel bad for you. But this thing is awesome!
$1.98 from Amazon. (You can usually find some at a local dollar store too!)

2. Milk Frother
I mean, who doesn’t like some froth on their milk?
PRODUCT from Ikea for $2.79.

3. Red Pan Scraper
This one is new to me, but will definitely pack a couple next time I am at Crate&Barrel. I tend to sauté a lot… and Dmitry does the dishes, so I think he will appreciate this tool even more than I.
$1.95 from Crate&Barrel


4. Food Bag Clips
So simple, but seriously so useful!
$4.43 on Amazon.

5. Pizza Cutter
Did you know you can also use it to cut lettuce, sandwiches, noodles, brownies? Well, you do now!

8.  Spaghetti Measurer
A tool that measures the appropriate serving size of spaghetti per person??? SUPER handy! And who knew what an actual serving size was?

9. Silicone Spatula
Silicone spatulas are the best! Nothing sticks to them and they don’t scratch the pans.
$4.99 from Amazon.

10. Egg Timer
This is my personal favorite! So easy to use, and you have the perfect hard or soft boiled egg every time!
$2.25 from Amazon.

11. Pineapple Corer
This is Dmitry’s favorite. We picked one up for free from HEB when we bought a pineapple, but you can get yours for $4.42 from Amazon.

12. Angled Measuring Cup
People swear that it’s a lot easier than using measuring cups and it seems to be more accurate too!

    I want that watermelon slicer. Although I’ve never had any luck with the pineapple corer.

      Yeah, I am curious to try the watermelon thing. Huh, I haven’t tried the pineapple thing myself, but Dmitry is obsessed with it. He wants us to buy pineapple every time we go shopping, just so he can core it 🙂

    I also want the watermelon slicer. Although there is something satisfying about eating it the old fashioned way and getting messy 😀
