The Best Kitchen Finds from Amazon

April 22, 2024


Team LIY

Here at LIY we like to consider ourselves professional Prime shoppers, so it should be no surprise that the majority of gadgets and gizmos in our home are from Amazon… and our kitchens are no exception! We’re all about making time spent in the kitchen as easy and efficient as possible so we can spend less time chopping veggies [check out this vegetable chopper!] and more time mixing up a batch of margaritas – it’s 5 o’clock somewhere, right?! From the beloved Nugget Ice Maker to a Watermelon Slicer we didn’t know we needed, here are the Best Kitchen Finds from Amazon!

PS. You can shop everything in one spot on our Amazon Storefront! Be sure to join our closed LIY Amazon Finds and Fails Facebook Group for all things Amazon, all in one spot!

Katy’s Always Pan & Perfect Pot

Perfect Pot // Always Pan

The Always Pan 2.0 and Perfect Pot are made with a Non toxic-non stick that’s better for you without PTFEs, PFOAs, lead, cadmium and other potentially toxic materials found in the majority of non-stick pans; which is very important to me! Our place also makes it their mission to use recycled and sustainable materials, plus over 80% of products are sourced from a woman-owned factory. Can we also mention how BEAUTIFUL they are?!

Allison’s Plastic Wine Glasses

Plastic Wine Glasses

These are super lightweight, and top rack dishwasher safe! They look like glass, and the best part is the fun “thumb notch” that allows you to hold the glass securely, and doesn’t smudge from your fingers!

Erin’s Electric Salt & Pepper Grinders

Salt & Pepper Grinders

A kitchen utensil I never expected to love this much — even all of our guests compliment them when they use them! One push of a button and you get fresh ground salt and pepper on your food – another favorite feature: the light on the bottom so you can see exactly how much and where you’re adding your S & P!

Katy’s Salt & Pepper Shakers

Salt & Pepper Shakers

Salt and Pepper Shakers are one of those things you use daily but are random to shop for! If you’re like me, they sit out on your kitchen counter and you want something that gives a cuter vibe than the standard containers they come in. These are super easy to refill, come in multiple colors, and are a great price!

Allison’s Plastic Plates & Silverwear

Plastic Plates // Plastic Silverware

I came across these black and gold plates, and gold silverware on Amazon. They both looked super high end, come in different colors, and were perfect for hosting! You could probably even wash, and reuse too!

Steph’s Coffee Grinder

Coffee Grinder

My at home coffee has never tasted so good, thanks to this coffee grinder! I can’t remember the last time I made a coffee run because my at home coffee is SO MUCH better than what I get at the drive through!

Steph’s Chopper


Jen’s Meat Thermometer

Meat Thermometer

I can’t rave enough about this little kitchen gadget! It has a great resource [telling you what internal meat temps should be] it’s magnetic, it’s accurate – it’s something every kitchen should have!

Hannah’s Can Opener

Kitchen Mama Auto Electric Can Opener


Erin’s Veggie Tray

Souper Cubes

Souper Cubes Silicone Containers

These silicone containers are a must for freezing soup! Whenever we make a batch of soup, we fill up our Souper Cubes, stick ’em in the freezer, and then whenever we want to eat it again, they pop out SO easy!

Jen’s Stasher Bags

Stasher Bags

Why did I wait so long? These stasher bags are brilliant! We do smoothies around here daily and those bananas ripen up quick! I can now cut them up, stash them in their bag, seal them – place them into the freezer and then when it’s smoothie time, take a few out at a time! Stasher Bags Saves Bananas 🙂 But honestly these are wonderful for anything, trail-mix on hikes, lunchmeat, sandwich fixings… the list is endless for the use of these bags!

Erin’s Soda Stream Sparkling Water Maker

Soda Stream

If you are a La Croix, Bubly, or insert any other carbonated water fan, this machine is for you! It is SO easy to use and makes batches of flavored carbonated water to store in your fridge at a time! We use it all summer long and keep our Stanley’s full!

Erin’s YoNananas Soft Serve Fruit Ice Cream Maker

YoNananas Frozen Fruit Dessert Maker

I bought this after experiencing it at a friend’s house – you simply turn any fruit into a delicious treat! It creates the consistency of ice cream!

Lauren’s Ninja Creami

Katy’s Ninja Blender

Ashley’s Juicer


Jen’s Vitamix Blender

Vitamix Blender

We’ve been on a smoothie kick all Summer long, and it was time for an upgrade in the blender department! I’ve hear so many wonderful things about the Vitamix, so I took it for a pulse… and I’m happy to report she’s a hot-blending winner in my book! She purées, blends – truly does all the things you ever want out of a blender! I’m excited to make soups in winter too!!

Katy’s Drying Mat

Drying Mat

After just having a dish towel beside the sink for random dishes to dry, it was time to invest in a new drying mat 😂The silicone material of this is so easy to clean and I think it makes it more sanitary than others I have had in the past that were more of a fabric. You can also use this under pet bowls, as a shoe mat, or fridge liner!

Katy’s Sponge Holder

Sponge Holder

A sponge holder may not be something you think you NEED but honestly it’s one of my go-to items to tell couples to put on their registry. There’s nothing worse than a soggy sponge collecting bacteria just chilling on your kitchen counter.

Jen’s Glass Smoothie Jars w/ Lids

Glass Smoothie Jars w/ Lids

I snagged these on sale and they showed up looking as smoothie smooth as ever! There is just something “fun” about drinkin’ your smoothie in a jar w/ a bamboo lid and wide straw – give it a try & you’ll know what I mean!
