Best kitchen gadgets

Kitchens are a sacred space. They’re where everyone in a house comes together: family, roommates, friends. Kitchens are also one of the places most prone to clutter, dirty dishes and sticky counters. It might be where your junk drawer is overstuffed and your counter is chaotic with too many appliances. All of this can make it unpleasant when it’s dinnertime and there are mouths (particularly your own) to feed. We could all probably use some help keeping our kitchens neat and functional so the next time hangry happens, we’re prepared.

Luckily for us, there are tools to help. If you’ve ever had to furnish an apartment, you know Ikea is a go-to stop. It’s hard not to get lost in the maze of their gorgeously decorated bedrooms and sophisticated office spaces. But you may not have noticed their kitchen gadgets are surprisingly useful too.

Here’s a list of gadgets that can make your kitchen a place of peace again, all while looking stylish.
