Just 38 Kitchen Products That Are Popular On TikTok For Good Reason

A powerful veggie chopper, a $$$-saving cold brew maker, ~aesthetic~ fridge organizers, and more hype-worthy TikTok products that belong in your kitchen.

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

1. A reviewer-beloved veggie chopper that’ll make you feel so powerful as you slice, chop, and julienne veggies (including those dreaded onions that make your eyes water) with ease. Its built-in storage container below keeps everything in one place until you’re ready to add them to your meal!

Promising review:  “Makes life so much easier. I can’t imagine chopping onions or bell peppers by hand anymore, and it does so much more. We used to have a Prepworks chopper, which was a similar idea, but you had to press so hard to chop, and it broke after not too long. This one requires very little effort to cut through the food, and it has a generous container.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in two sizes).

2. A Yonanas fruit soft-serve maker to convert your favorite frozen fruits into a smooth and creamy sorbet-like treat in a matter of minutes. Strawberry-banana, mango, kiwi, blueberries… the options are endless, and if you’re vegan or have dietary restrictions that prevent you from having ice cream, this lets you get in on the action as well.

Promising review: “I saw one of these in action at a friend’s house like five years ago and thought it was just a made up memory because making ice cream out of solely frozen fruit seems wild. But when I saw a TikTok about it, I immediately went to Amazon and bought it. Literally, this was the BEST decision of my life. I cannot believe still how amazing this thing is! It makes the creamiest, best-tasting fruit ice cream ever. It’s easy to take apart and clean, and super easy to use.” —DMCKAY

Get it from Amazon for $48.75+ (available in six colors). 

3. A pair of glowing light saber chopsticks that make ordering sushi 10 times more fun. Let a friend borrow the second pair, and you can light saber-duel them for the final piece.

BuzzFeed Shopping writer Emma Lord says: “As you can see from the above GIF, I bought these for myself, and I love them to pieces. TBH, I use them as decor every bit as much as I use them to eat. Sometimes I just keep them in my work area to light them up during the day to feel fancy. They toggle back and forth between a bunch of different colors, like red, blue, yellow, purple, and multicolor, so you can either make them match *orhave a red and blue one together and bring ~balance~ to the Force.”

Promising review: “The chopsticks are very durable, and the glow is bright. They’re a bit bigger that I expected — but very pleased nonetheless with the product because it serves the purpose and is entertaining for kids, right up to adult Star Wars nerds. It also made the perfect gift for my fellow Star Wars nerds. I’ve been too busy playing with them rather than using them to eat food — but hopefully that will eventually happen before the batteries need changing.” —Anthony

Get it from Amazon for $10.97.

4. A Takeya cold brew maker so you can whip up a refreshing caffeinated drink whenever you please while saving money on those all-too-frequent Starbucks trips. This popular device boasts an airtight lid and stainless-steel filter designed to keep coffee fresh for up to two weeks!

I bought the Takeya cold brew maker recently, and it was worth every penny — it’s SO easy to use, and the coffee is equally delicious. I’ve loved having fresh cold brew all summer long while working from home. You just fill up the filter (which screws onto the lid) with your go-to ground coffee, fill the container with water, screw the filter-top on, shake for about 30 seconds to combine, and leave the whole thing in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Then, remove the filter from the pitcher and — BAM — you’ve got some delicious coffee. BTW, you can also use it to make hot coffee by adding boiling water.

Check out the Takeya cold brew maker on TikTok to see how it works!

Promising review: “With the indefinite work from home situation 2020 has put us in, I had a real craving for my Starbucks iced coffee especially as the weather has gotten warmer. Since I can’t go out and get my expensive iced coffee, I decided to get this product to make it myself. Best decision ever. It’s very easy to make smooth, delicious iced coffee overnight and have a perfect brew in the morning.” —Shelby

See the Dash mini maker on TikTok where it’s used to cook a breakfast of sausage and eggs.

Promising review: “This is the perfect easy breakfast sandwich maker. It cooks the egg perfectly (I used jumbo eggs, and it worked perfectly just like regular eggs). It’s honestly one of my personal favorite appliances. I just had a baby, and having something I can crack an egg into and let it sit to cook without having to flip and it’s done within five minutes is honestly a lifesaver, and it cleans super easy! 10/10 I love this thing; it’s just like my George Foreman!” —Emily

Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors). 

7. A convenient and kid-friendly cereal dispenser to turn the mess of cereal boxes crammed into your pantry into a sleek storage solution that’s easily accessible *andlets you see at a glance how much is left. Each container holds an entire family-size box of cereal!

Promising review: “We have three kids and a very small kitchen with very little cabinet/counter space!!! We used to keep our cereal boxes on top of our refrigerator, but I’ve been trying to declutter and also come up with a solution for our kids to be able to get their own cereal in the mornings. THIS IS IT!!!! It looks great on our counter, and we have very little space, so it fits just right! This has been the perfect solution to giving our kids the independence they need to get their own breakfast! It has been a lifesaver!!! Love it!!!” —tenle

Get it from Amazon for $41.42.

8. A stuffed waffle maker that takes one of the best breakfast foods and makes it even better (who knew it was possible??). We’re talking about soft, warm, pillowy Belgian waffles — this genius device lets you cook them stuffed with berries, jam, Nutella, cheese, meats, anything your mind can possible dream up. YUM.

Promising review: “I bought this after I saw a video on TikTok, so I had an idea about the yummy waffles I could make. First waffles were stuffed with apple pie filling. Second ones scrambled eggs with bacon and cheese. Just amazing!!! The only way you could make this better is to send a chef!! I definitely recommend watching a video on TikTok or YouTube to inspire you before you start!!” —Adirondackdarling

Get it from Amazon for $49.99

9. A genius soap dispenser and sponge caddy so you’re not constantly reaching for that bulky bottle of dish soap and using way more than you actually need — by pushing your sponge down on this just once or twice, you get just enough soap to handle the dish-washing task ahead. Plus, it looks nice enough to keep out on the counter.

See the soap dispenser and sponge caddy on TikTok to see how it works.

Promising review: “TikTok made me buy it!! No regrets! The workmanship is top of the line. The durability and quality of the material guarantees that this product will last the test of time. What I appreciate most about this product is the money I am saving on dish soap. I only need one or two pumps to wash a sink of dishes. I am conserving and not over using soap. I love it!!! This product is a must have for every kitchen. It will be a product you will not be able to live without.” —Martha Servin

Get it from Amazon for $10.85+ (available in three colors).

10. A TidyBoard bamboo cutting board that’s more than *justa cutting board — it has a cutout on the right side that fits containers and strainers (depending on what you’re prepping) to hold food as you prepare it, letting it drain directly into the sink as you go. It can bear up to nine pounds of food (!), and the bamboo won’t dull your knives like other kinds of cutting boards.

You’ll get the cutting board, a large strainer, a large container, a small strainer, two small containers, and two lids (so you can pop your ingredients right into the fridge if you’re meal prepping!). This system is super neat because of its versatility — you could use two separate drainers together, one big drainer with one smaller drainer above it (as pictured above right), or a container beneath two smaller drainers if you’re not prepping by a sink. This is also super space-efficient, making it a nice option for smaller kitchens!

Get a closer look at the TidyBoard on TikTok.

Promising review: “I initially purchased the TidyBoard as we are looking to cut back on delivery meals and cook more often at home. This product has been the single most effective tool in helping me to reach my health/cooking at home goals. The cutting board itself is the perfect size to slice a large pineapple or head of lettuce, and no longer do I need to deal with the mess of stray food all over my countertop as I prepare meals. The collapsable containers are efficient and easy to store. I love that the containers are dishwasher-safe as well. This is a quality product that makes my life easier.” —Brittany

Get it from Amazon for $99.99 (available in two colors).

11. A TikTok-viral bagel guillotine because sure, you *couldjust use a knife to slice your bagels, but this is quicker, easier, safer (especially for kids!), and ensures your slices are perfectly even (not jagged) every time, which makes spreading your toppings on easier too.

Promising review: “My boyfriend can’t cut bagels. He literally butchers these poor baby bagels all up. I saw this on a TikTok and I was like ‘oh we need that.’ So I bought it. And it was a good investment. Now we can enjoy nicely sliced bagels that fit in a toaster and aren’t jagged across. Yay bagel slicer!” —Ci DiPalma

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in four colors).

12. Fridge organizers for stashing your produce, drinks, and more. It won’t just make your fridge look like something out of a magazine; it’ll also help you get through all that expensive food you bought before it goes bad thanks to the clear design that lets you see everything at a glance.

13. A set of nonstick, heat-safe sheet pan dividers, essentially trays that sit inside your sheet pan to cook ingredients separately — that way, when your salmon needs to come out before your veggies, you can just lift that tray right out and put the rest back in the oven.

Promising review: “Brilliant. 100000% recommend them! It lets me separate veggies by how long they take to cook so they are all ready at the same time and nothing is over/undercooked. I love these cheat sheets. They are a great tool for my kitchen.” —yule

Promising review:  “There was no set up…Take it out of the box and place it on the stove. The magnets are very strong keeping the shelf fixed in place. The magnets are raised allowing air flow underneath preventing the shelf from heating up. Sizing was perfect. I love it!” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in three sizes and in six finishes). 

15. A handy dandy cup rinser that makes thoroughly cleaning sippy cups, wine glasses, and water bottles a breeze — you’ll get the same results in *secondsthat you would if they went through the dishwasher. It’s especially popular with parents who need to stay on top of all the dirty cups!

I never knew I needed this and now can’t imagine not having it! It would make a great gift! I bet a LOT of people don’t know about this little gadget. Wipes clean with a wet rag or sponge.” —That Windy City Girl

Get it from Amazon for $9.88+ (available in three colors).

17. A split anti-soggy cereal bowl that addresses the age-old problem of milk turning your cereal soggy faster than you can eat it. The split design means you can dip a spoonful of cereal into the milk portion with each bite, ensuring it stays crunchy down to the last piece!

Promising review: “This product is something I didn’t know I needed. It’s like the creator crawled into my soul and found the deepest desire of my heart and then invented it. If you think I’m being dramatic, you should try soggy cereal and then eat cereal from THIS bowl. I’ll take 30 more, please, and hand them out as gifts.” —Sarah F.

Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three colors and in packs of two and three).

18.

Promising review: “Holy moly! Best toast I have ever made. I did a comparison taste test with the Balmuda toaster versus my cheapie $60 toaster oven. You can really taste the difference in the toast with the texture and the moisture of the inside of the toast. Hands-down, Balmuda blew my other toaster out the water. So happy with purchase.” —JL

Get it from Amazon for $299 (available in four colors).

19. A 4-in-1 organizer and dispenser designed for plastic wrap, aluminum foil, and wax paper, organizing them compactly in a drawer so you can easily dispense the amount you need — there’s even a built-in slide cutter on each row to swiftly cut off your piece!

Promising review: “I love this product! I was able to save space in my pantry and have all my wraps in one convenient space.

Get a set of five from Amazon for $11.87.

Peep this adorable utensil set on TikTok.

Promising review: “Really cute set and the quality is good too, so a win-win for me! It is dishwasher safe. I tried one of the pieces washed in the dishwasher and it came out just fine. For longevity I plan to just hand-wash because I love things in pink! They’re heat resistant — I used the spatula to cook bacon and pressed on the pan and nothing bad happened to it. I’ve had this set for a month now and been using it every day; it still looks as good as new. No burns/melted marks; no discoloration. I have washed it in the dishwasher multiple times and they come out fine. Easy to clean.” —Pookie Bear

Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in six colors).

23. A “Bread Buddy” dispenser — it’ll be a game-changer if you’re always finding mold on your sandwich bread by the time you get to the end of the bag.

Promising review: “The Buddeez Sandwich Bread Dispenser is great! It does exactly what it was intended for. I live alone, and I don’t quite go through bread often enough before the last quarter section of the loaf starts to go stale. I was originally looking for something to put a loaf of bread in as a shell for my vacuum sealer, that would keep the bread from getting crushed from the pressure. This dispenser solved all of my problems. Thank you!” —DRMcQuaig

24. A two-pack of Dan-O’s seasoning that’ll become your holy grail kitchen spice mixture for using on everything from veggies and fish to meat and eggs. It’s a low-sodium, flavor-packed mix containing dried herbs, citrus, granulated onion, and garlic that’ll kick any dish up a notch.

Promising review: “I became interested in this product while watching TikToks. I have been adding it to so many things. I use it in spaghetti, on fish, and one of my favorites is to add it to popcorn. My husband had to ask why my popcorn smelled like steak. I love the fact that it is low sodium as well. I am not a fan of extra salt and most foods already have plenty of salt but need some seasoning. This should be your go-to seasoning.” —Heartcri

25. A Guac-Lock container because once you’ve turned avocados into guacamole, it becomes a race against the clock to keep the delicious dip from turning brown frustratingly fast. This handy container presses all the air out so the guac doesn’t have that horrible layer of brown across the top next time you go to dip a chip in.

Check out a TikTok of the Guac-Lock (try saying that five times fast) in action.

Promising review: “Rarely do I buy something that delivers 100% of what they claim it will. I’m happy to report that this completely lived up to my expectations. Truth be told, it works even better than I expected it to. I made a batch of guac a week ago. Two or three times during the week, I unlocked it, dipped a chip or two and then re-locked it. After a week, the guacamole is as fresh as if I made it this morning. I typically make a batch of guac each week and use it as a snack or as a spread on sandwiches. I also typically throw out one-third of the batch because it spoils before we can eat it. Not any more. I estimate the food I’m not wasting will actually pay for the Guac-Lock in about a month.” —mhogan

Promising review: “I got this yesterday, and my son asked me this morning if I would make him pancakes! I was happy to oblige, so I could try my new kitchen gadget, and it did not disappoint! I LOVE it! I made the batter right in the container, and it has measurements on it, so I didn’t even have to get out my measuring cups. The batter came out perfectly and easily, and when I stopped the flow, it immediate stopped! There was not one dribble of batter anywhere, and the pancakes turned out perfectly! I cannot wait to make cupcakes with this! That was the main reason I bought it, because I always dribble cake batter everywhere when I try to make cupcakes, and it’s a mess. I love cupcakes, but not the mess. Now I will be able to easily make them! I will most likely buy this as gifts for my family and friends as well. My advice, get it!” —Nikki

See this “life-changing” drawer organizer on TikTok! BTW, there’s a version of this for safely and compactly storing knives in a drawer too! Many reviewers ended up pairing both of these together.

BuzzFeed Shopping editor Chelsea Stuart has used the cutlery organizer to make her kitchen feel more organized. She says: “Just got this, and it has freed up SO much space in our cutlery drawer that we can now store teas, small Tupperware, etc. vs. before it was just a mess of utensils.”

Promising review: “I had never seen this before I bought it, and holy crap it changed my life. So. Much. Room. There is so much room left in my drawer now that I moved stuff from another drawer and I have an entirely empty drawer in my kitchen now. Now only HALF the drawer is silverware and the other half is spatulas and cooking utensils. It is great. It also seems very sturdy. Highly recommend.” —van31050

Promising review: “I bought this because I saw it on TikTok, and I’m so glad I did! I hate having things on my counters that don’t belong. I have a dishwasher, but I have some things (like most everyone) that aren’t dishwasher safe. I love that I can just roll this out and dry my dishes over the sink. The fact that air is able to get to all sides allows dishes like cups and bowls to actually get dry. Prior to this I was using a drying mat next to my sink, but I was always having to towel dry items that had been sitting out ‘drying’ for hours. Even my husband is impressed. He has told me multiple times it was such a good buy!” —Sheri

“Ever since I got a new LG dishwasher four years ago I have been struggling with a foul odor. No amount of cleaning or cleaners helped. I have tried numerous disposal cleaners as well that have been a waste of time and money. Then I found these. My sink and dishwasher has been completely odor free and I couldn’t be happier! No more embarrassment with the death smell that came every time I opened my dishwasher. Will definitely order more.” —Ferg4914

Promising review: “This is a must-have for every kitchen. I like to put fresh herbs into most of my food. What an ingenious gadget to make it easier. Just clip and there you have it. I use a lot of green onions for various dishes. This was my prime purpose for ordering this item. It does not disappoint. It even handled several stalks at a time. I found that I could cut up the green stalks with ease. I especially like the dual purpose of the guard used to put over the blades when storing. The top of this guard also helps to clear the blades after cutting the herbs or whatever. Brilliant design!” —AZN8TV

32. A classic French-style butter keeper so you always have room temp and perfectly spreadable butter on hand for your morning bagels and toast (because we all know the torture of trying to spread chilled butter).

Promising review: “I have wanted a butter bell half my life. While deciding it was time to get one, I was thinking how much I hate the knobs on them, including the rectangle dishes. I just want to grab the lid and go. Well, this fits the bill. It’s just more natural to grab this type of lid and mechanically easier as well. I was also not sure I liked the contrast of the white lid on the blue crock. But when it arrived, and I played with opening/closing it, it was instant happiness! I do change the water every 1–2 days and nothing foul going on at all. It has its little place to sit on the counter, looks really good, and protects my butter so I can have soft stuff for my bread.” —DerSchuhmacher

Get it from Amazon for $16.95+ (available in seven colors).

33. A natural peanut butter stirrer because if you’re into natural peanut butter, you know how it tends to separate and gather oil at the top — not the most appetizing sight. This lets you quickly combine the oil and solid without having to use a spoon, which just creates a big globby mess, and you get a much more thorough and even mixing so your PB is good to the last drop.

Promising review: “This thing is amazing!! I’ve been stirring my Kirkland natural peanut butter with a knife before this and it just wasn’t working. The top was super oily and by the time I got to the bottom of the jar the peanut butter was super hard. I have been eyeballing this stirrer for a while and now I wish I had bought it sooner! It is easy to use and perfectly stirs the oil throughout the jar. I’m halfway through my jar of peanut butter after using this and it is the perfect consistency. If you eat a lot of natural peanut butter just buy this!” —Amazon customer

34. The cult-favorite Always Pan from Our Place, which will make you look back and regret all the times you dirtied up six different dishes to make one meal. The Always Pan can do it all: braise, sear, steam, strain, sauté, fry, boil, serve, and store. It’s also sooo lightweight and compact and comes in eight striking colors.

Here’s what BuzzFeed Shopping writer Taylor Steele has to say about the Always Pan: “As someone who neither enjoys cooking nor is particularly good at it, the Always Pan has made being in the kitchen feel like less of a chore. Having one pan that can do everything means I don’t have to second-guess every cooking decision I make. I can boil and prepare pasta in it. And I can roast Brussels sprouts. And I can make the perfect fried egg. And I can steam dumplings. The best part is that everything slides so seamlessly out of the pan and onto the plate, which also makes clean up super fast and easy. Both the amateur (read: reluctant) cook and the more seasoned chef will enjoy creating fan favorites and new recipes in the Always Pan!”

Also, BuzzFeeders LOVE this pan. Here’s our review of the Always Pan, in which seven members of our team weigh in everything they love about it, from the nonstick coating to the versatility to the ~aesthetic~.

35. A set of self-leveling measuring spoons, especially useful for bakers who need ~precision~ when it comes to measuring out salt, flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and more. Just scoop and squeeze, and it’ll push off the excess so you’re not doing any guesswork.

Each set comes with a tablespoon, teaspoon, 1/2 teaspoon, and 1/4 teaspoon.

Promising review: “I LOVE them! I do not have any issues with the content of the spoon spilling while I use it. I gently press the level several times to clear everything off the top and it’s perfect. It’s absolutely not a necessity in the kitchen, but it’s keeps it simple and I’m not dirtying a knife to use as a level. Great invention.” —Amherst Mom

36. A handy condiment fork to keep dirty hands out of the pickle jar and make pulling one out for your late-night snack much easier and cleaner. It comes in a holder you can wrap around the jar of pickles (or olives or peppers) so it’s always ready to go.

Promising review: “Great kitchen item. Forks are great to get pickles out of the jar, but if you have kids/lazy people (lol) you know that dirty hands are going into that jar. 😉 This has really prevented that from happening. It comes with two different rings to fit whatever size jar, a stabber holder, and a stabbing stick.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $8.99

37. An automatic pan stirrer for those recipes that call for frequent stirring, but you have like 10 other things going on in the kitchen and no one around to help. It might seem a little silly, but it’s also a better alternative to burning your food.

Promising review: “My husband loves to cook. We have two very small children, so while his meals are mostly yummy, they are also sometimes burnt. 🙂 This was perfect for him. He’s able to turn it on, run into the next room to save the day with a plastic bag and a washcloth for whatever blowout-esque mess I’m dealing with, forget he’s cooking, run back into the kitchen frantically when he remembers, and arrive only to find the meal practically cooking itself. Best. Gift. Ever.” —Jake the ChefturnedDaddy

Get it from Uncommon Goods for $25.

38. Finally, a Michael Scott dishwasher magnet to make a pretty boring and sometimes tedious kitchen task a little more fun — and hopefully prevent dirty dishes from being mixed in with clean ones, if you live with others. Because it’s sort of hard to miss Michael’s smiling face staring up at you with the word CLEAN.

Promising review: “My whole family is a fan of The Office, so when I was searching for a magnet we could use on our dishwasher, this was the hands down winner. Does it go with my farmhouse decor? Nope, not at all. But it does get the attention of two teenage boys. Had I got with something a bit more my decor style, I can guarantee you it would not be as useful. I mean, we all would much rather see Prison Mike staring back at us than suit and tie Michael Scott, right? And there is only one way for that to happen…clean out the dishwasher!” —R. Funk

Get it from Amazon for $10.99.
