A microwave pasta cooker that'll give you perfect pasta in all of its ~al dente~ glory. You'll never overcook or underboil spaghetti again.


Amazon, amazon.com
Promising review: "What a silly little gadget I laughed at myself for purchasing... and absolutely LOVE!!! I thought it would ruin my pasta but it doesn't! It comes out exactly the same as if I'd cooked it on the stove. The difference is I don't have to babysit it, and I don't have to dirty a three times larger–pasta pot. I put this in the microwave without the lid and I can walk away from it, do a sauce on the stove, sauté some veggies, or whatever. It has never boiled over, ever. I am so glad I bought this!" —Stacey Carpenter

Garbage disposer-cleaning tablets for loosening up all the gross gunk from your kitchen's second hardest worker.

The biodegradable cleaner comes in pre-measured packets with enough for four uses in one bag.

Promising review: "Holy cow I didn't realize how easy and quick it was to clean a garbage disposal until I bought this product! Typically, in my naïve thinking, I'd just use vinegar and baking soda down the drain and call it good. Little did I know that there was an actual cleaning product available until I stumbled across it through a BuzzFeed article. So of course, I had to try it. Very simple instructions, literally takes five minutes and some hot water and VOILA! you have a clean, no-longer-stinky garbage disposal. The smaller bag lasted me about six weeks, as I didn't feel the need the clean the disposal weekly like the packaging recommended. But let me say that anytime I got a whiff of an odor, all I did was drop one of those packs in the disposal and th…
A pair of hairy-good slippers you're basically contractually obligated to wear while binge watching the whole extended edition of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. See how long it takes for someone to notice you're wearing them.

Get them from Amazon for $18.95 (they fit up to a size 8.5; also available in a size up to men's 11).

Promising review: "Got these for my mom during her hospital stay. We had fun with the nurses and doctors, hiding my mom's slippered feet under the sheets, and then complaining of swollen feet. When they pulled back her sheets, most of them gasped and then laughed and laughed. Its nice to have some humor during difficult times. " —Wendy Salerno

A baguette-shaped wrist rest, because carpal tunnel shan't keep you from ~getting that bread~.

Get it from Amazon for $11.59.

Promising review: "I'm using this as week speak, and it still cracks me up every day. Every time someone new walks into my office they think it is real bread — it is incredibly realistic looking. It is softer than any wrist rest I have ever had, I have carpal tunnel and I'm in software where typing isn't really an option, so to have something that is incredibly comfortable, and makes me smile every time I look at it is incredibly worth it! Don't underestimate the value in having something that makes the mundane a little more fun. And FYI, the packaging will also crack you up!" —Daryl-Ann

A set of silicone brushes that help take the mess out of applying face masks of all kinds. No more picking dried mask out of your nails for DAYS after you apply one with your fingers — don't pretend that doesn't happen to you!

Promising review: "I love these! I no longer dread putting on my face products. I was using my fingers to apply the product to my face, but it was so messy and got in my nails, too. When I came across these silicone brushes I knew I had to have them. They are amazing and the low price is a steal. These brushes really changed my routine. I use my facial products more often because I'm no longer worried about the annoying mess. The silicone brush is very flexible and spreads the product on my face nicely. Cleaning the brush is a simple task, just rinse and pat dry. Highly recommended!" —Wells Family

An ice tray with a spill-proof silicone lid so you can store the tray sideways or at an angle — and walk from the sink to the freezer without sloshing all over the place.

AND it'll keep your cubes from getting that funky freezer smell.

Promising review: "Do you feel the need to research even the smallest purchases before you commit? Well then, this is the review for you, because I spent a solid hour researching ice cube trays upon moving into my new apartment. Amazon reviewers, you've done it again! I have owned this ice cube tray for approximately four months and I have loved every day we've had together. I've considered inviting people into my home and offering them a glass of water just so they can watch in awe as I peel back the silicone top and cool the crap out of their drink. The ice cubes taste like fresh ice and the name does not lie — these ice cubes DO NOT SPILL. I sometimes turn it upside down in my freezer just to spice things up." —Sara

Promising review: "Very useful! I love that the cup is removable so if you have one of those giant Chick-fil-A ketchup cups, it can sit within the holder without the added cup, but a smaller sauce like from Wendy’s can sit inside the additional cup so it won’t fall through." —catherine

A pack of Bottle Bright tablets possibly made out of fairy dust, because they'll totally wipe away years of grime in mere minutes.

Just fill your dirty mug with water, add a tablet, let fizz for half an hour, and then rinse!

Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix …
