SB Hot List: Our Favorite Kitchen Gadgets
Ninja Foodi Pro Pressure Cooker & Air Fryer
“Best. Air. Fryer. Ever. It has 11 cooking options (my favorite is the ‘Air Crisp’ setting, obviously), but I seriously cook everything in it. I mean everything. It’s a pressure cooker, fryer, broiler, and so much more. And, you can’t beat the price! The only con is that it’s a little big, so I have to store it in my under-counter space.” — Katelyn Caughron, Client Relations & Social Media Coordinator

“Behold, the best thing since sliced bread … onion goggles! If you chop onions as often as I do (and tear up the moment your knife hits layer one), these are a saving grace. One of my dear friends gave them to me as a gift and bedazzled them for peak absurdity, which makes them the perfect topic of conversation at dinner parties!” — Jenna Bratcher, Lead Nashville Writer & Associate Editor
Scrub Mommy Sponge
“The Scrub Mommy is by far my most-used kitchen gadget. There’s nothing I love more than a clean kitchen, and because of the Scrub Mommy, I can quickly clean as I cook. It’s weird to say that a sponge has many features, but the Scrub Mommy does! The rough scrub side makes cleaning up dried bits a breeze, and the soft side wipes things clean. The smile on the sponge cleans both sides of utensils, and the eyes are used to hold the sponge to get a 360-degree clean with tall glasses. Not only is the sponge highly functional, but it’s also dishwasher-safe, making it usable for many cleans to come.” — Robert Conklin, Digital Developer
Microwave Pressure Cooker
“My favorite hardworking lil’ kitchen gadget is this microwave pressure cooker from Kuhn Rikon. It makes steaming fresh veggies SO quick and easy. (Cleanup is a breeze, too.).” — Alissa Harb, Managing Editor
nutribullet® Nutrient Extractor + Raweao Refrigerator Organizer Bins
“I love my nutribullet for making protein shakes. It’s easy to use, and I drink right out of the container, so there’s less of a mess! It’s a one-stop shop for my breakfast or snack in less than five minutes!
I also love these clear organizers for my fridge. They keep fruit, soft drinks, and other loose items organized and allow easy access to them!” — Cameron Meek, Account Executive
Nespresso VertuoPlus Coffee and Espresso Maker
“My favorite kitchen gadget is the Nespresso VertuoPlus Coffee and Espresso Maker. You can make an iced latte, cappuccino, or espresso from the comfort of your home — and without having to spend $8. I also love that you can order different varieties of pods. I love their seasonal ones. My current favorite is the tropical coconut pod that you brew over ice!” — Anne Henley Walker, Content Marketing Assistant & Agency Relations
Aroma Digital Rice Cooker
“One of my favorite meals to make at home is chicken fried rice (this recipe is my personal favorite!), and the Aroma digital rice cooker makes cooking the rice so easy! I’ve had it for years, so it definitely stands the test of time. It also works great for steaming veggies, and it’s a breeze to clean!” — Brianna Goebel, Associate Editor & Staff Writer
“I just love having this colorful hand juicer for lemons and limes. I also have the one for oranges. I’ve had others, but these really get all the juice out of the fruit, which is super helpful when you are cooking or making cocktails. I use these so much more than I ever thought I would!” – Liza Graves, StyleBlueprint Founder
