The cult-fave Instant Pot Duo, a programmable wonder that can cook pretty dang much anything and be the only kitchen gadget you need — it’ll serve as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker, sauté pan, steamer, and rice cooker. All you have to do is toss in your ingredients and hit a button, and let this baby take it from there.,

Check out BuzzFeed’s full Instant Pot review.

Promising review: “There are so many people who say they can’t cook, but I swear I’m on a whole new level of not being able to cook. This little appliance helps expand our menu and I have learned to do so much with it. I love how easy it is and how I throw everything in and it comes out done. No stirring and not many messy dishes. I still don’t love it for meats, but I think that’s just a matter of needing to experiment more with them. I seriously can’t believe how many foods can be cooked in here! I found a recipe for a mac ‘n’ cheese that everyone loves. It’s only five ingredients and only requires washing a cheese grater and the pot and it only takes 20 minutes. Before this I had never once made spaghetti with meat sauce. Now I do it all the time. Again, I only have ONE thing to clean afterward. If I tried doing with without the Instant Pot, I would have a pan for the meat, pot for the pasta, and the strainer. It only takes about 20 minutes start to finish. Since I usually don’t have to do many dishes with the Instant Pot, I tend to enjoy experimenting. My family is constantly surprised at how much this has changed how we eat. I love that when we have a last minute neighborhood get-together and I can whip up a pasta dish and veggie real quick.” —Aundrea

An under-desk mount to organize *and* charge your must-have devices. It’s got three USB ports, two arms to hold over-ear headphones or a smartwatch, slots for cords and earbuds, and three wire clips included! Wow, tech you and your fabulous, do-it-all desk out.


Promising review: “I love this thing. I didn’t use any screws to secure it under my desk, only the adhesive tape, and I doubt I could rip it off if I wanted to. The headphone mount on the side of my desk is nice, but the three powered USB ports in the front have been more useful than I expected; I actually bought a short 6-inch USB-C cable because it’s so nice to have my phone charging at the corner of my desk connected to this. Three USB ports within arm’s reach is so, so much better than having to reach to your computer or to a hub on your desk. I love it; it’s something I grabbed on a whim during one of those ‘I wonder what I can buy for my gaming setup’ Amazon searching sessions we’ve all had, and ended up loving it far more than I’d expected.” —Nino

Bio Oil, an amazing vitamin A and E formula that over 7,000 5-star reviewers swear by for working all sorts of skincare miracles, from fading scars to smoothing and moisturizing. Basically, it’s the secret ingredient your self-care routine has been missing.,

The reviewer’s results on the left are after just four weeks!!! It really does work fast. I had an acne scar on my face I just couldn’t stop picking at (you know how it is), and I picked some of this up at the drugstore and it healed my forehead up in a matter of days. It absorbs quickly and just feels nice to put on, so I’m tempted to use it pretty much everywhere!

Promising review: “I am using this for EVERYTHING! I have only used it for a few days and am already see a dramatic difference in my skin. I bought this because I just had a mole removed and my daughter has a scar on her face. We are applying to these areas, but I have used as a moisturizer on my skin (dry), my daughter’s skin (combination), both of my sons (both dry, one acne prone), and my husband’s skin (oily). We are all glowing! And the fine lines in my forehead are noticeably less!!” —Michelle Rayburn

A game-changing wine gadget that’s a stopper, pourer, aerator, filter, and recorker all in one and a must-have addition for anyone who drinks wine. It’s under $10, so wine not?


Promising review: “Throw out the others, this is the one. I have a drawer full of wine pour spouts of varying designs. Some don’t fit all bottles, some leak while pouring, and some are so tall that storing upright in a refrigerator is difficult and none seal completely. This spout/stopper seals completely and lets you lay the bottle on its side. The aerator allows air to move back into the bottle while pouring to avoid the ‘glug glug’ effect of other pour spouts. The strainer may filter large cork pieces, but is not fine enough for sediment. The portion of the corker that fits inside the bottle has fit every bottle I’ve tried it in, from standard-size bottles to the larger 1.5-liter bottles. It appears to be made from a flexible material that doesn’t add any unwanted taste to the wine.” —Jack Dallas

Get it from Amazon for $9.55.


And an ingenious champagne stopper, which doesn’t just reseal your precious bottle but also increases the pressure inside to preserve the bubbles. It even features a dial to help you mark the date you opened it on the top of the stopper! Because honestly, nothing should stop you from pouring an individual glass of bubbly for you and you alone.

Maitland Quitmeyer/BuzzFeed, Amazon

It’s dishwasher safe!

BuzzFeed Shopping editor Maitland Quitmeyer swears by hers. She says: “I love bubbles — champs, cava, prosecco, sparkling rose — they just know how to bring the party! But no one likes when sparkling wine goes flat, or you feel like you can’t just have one or two glasses without ruining the whole bottle. So I went on Amazon and found the best champagne stopper I could find and immediately hit ‘add to cart.’ What a great purchase! This little bb is so easy to use — just pop it on top of the bottle, push the metal sides in so it clamps on, then push the top button several times to vacuum seal and preserve the bubs. Then when you next want a glass, spritz, or mimosa, you’ll hear that same *POP* you heard when first taking out the cork — and the effervescence you so crave will be fully intact. Plus, you can confidently store your leftover bottle on its side in your fridge; I’ve had zero leakage problems with this thus far!” Check out her full review here (#1).

A two-in-one herb stripper and chopper with nine holes for stripping everything from rosemary to kale, plus a covered blade you can open up when it’s chop o’ clock. Herbie: Fully Loaded is no longer just a film from your childhood, it’s also the perfect way to describe the well-seasoned, flavor-loaded dishes this’ll help you make.


Promising review: “I had no idea how much I needed this gadget until I got it. I thought it might still require a gentle touch to strip some herbs, but not at all; I ripped through a half-pound of thyme in about 15 minutes. Plus, I got at least twice as much herb as I normally do, as this did the job without me becoming super bored and only half-heartedly trying to finish. Yay.” —Leah Woodard

INDV Apparel/Etsy

This LA-based small biz stocks lots of fun throwback-ish finds.

It’s cruelty free and all natural, and it actually reacts with the chemicals in your skin to change to a color that works perfectly for you.

Promising review: “I love these! I’m an extremely fair-skinned redhead and it’s hard to find cheek and lip colors that work for me, let alone a single product that works for both. They are much bolder on me than the product pics show even on the lightest skin tone, but I’m used to that with most products. In the picture on the left I’m wearing the pink on both my lips and cheeks.” —Nathan

Or a creamy, jojoba oil–infused version from Subtl Beauty if you’re looking for a richer pigment. Each tub can last up to 60 uses, and it’s vegan!

Subtl Beauty

It’s from a small biz specializing in innovative, on-the-go makeup essentials, and can be snapped together with the brand’s other products to create their signature customizable stacks.

Promising review: “Love. Love. Love. I’m obsessed with this cream for both my lips and cheeks. I’ve never thought I could use cream blush, but this stuff is gorgeous and long lasting even on my oily skin. It’s beautiful on my lips and lasts a surprisingly long time.” —Katy Shaw

Get it from Subtl Beauty for $14 (available in six colors).


A roll-up dish rack that’s so much more than a dish rack. It’ll save you a ridiculous amount of counter space, both during cooking and cleanup, since you can use it to dry dishes, thaw meat, and strain veggies, or even as just another place to put cutting boards and dishes during meal prep. And when you’re done, you can just roll it up and put it under the sink!,

Promising review: “How did I ever get along without this thing? We were looking for a way to dry dishes without taking up counter space with a dedicated drying rack. I decided to give this little contraption a try, and boy, am I glad I did. It is incredibly versatile and is a wonderful addition to our kitchen. So far I have used it for drying large items over the sink, filling a pot when the sink was already full, and as a counter trivet for a hot pan, and it performs beautifully in all these roles. The metal rods are strong and sturdy enough to hold heavy items, long enough to span our sink from multiple angles, and best of all, it rolls up for easy storage when not in use. All around a great kitchen tool, and I’ll never be without one again.” —T. Eicher

Get it from Amazon for $23.98+ (available in two sizes).


Nizoral shampoo, which markets itself as anti-dandruff but can also be used as a game-changing wash-off mask to clear up fungal acne breakouts. Just look at these pics — it’s miraculous either way.,

No wonder it’s got over 6,000 positive reviews. I get recurring bouts of fungal acne on my forehead, and I last summer I started using this at the recommendation of the interwebs (its key ingredient is an antifungal). Every other day, I slathered it on the affected area, let it sit for a few minutes, and rinsed it off. My forehead looked better the next day.

Promising review: “This stuff is absolutely amazing. I was one step away from going to the dermatologist. I had severe dandruff that was so bad I could shake my head and it would come off. With just a few uses per week, I got rid of all of my flakes. My scalp also stopped burning from dryness. My hair has never been healthier.” —Moo Moo

Get it from Amazon for $14.84 (or $14.10 with the Subscribe & Save option).


A wall-mounted bathroom organizer that’ll pretty much handle all your latrine needs in one fell swoop. It comes complete with several storage compartments and hooks, a towel bar, a phone holder, two to three sleek cups, room for up to four toothbrushes, and even a toothpaste dispenser!!

It mounts via adhesive and can support up to 15 pounds. 

Promising review: “I am absolutely in love with this dispenser! Its contemporary appearance complements my bathroom well. It has multiple compartments that allow for very versatile use. The toothpaste dispenser is not battery powered; I am not entirely sure how they mechanically got it to work LOL, but it’s amazing as well. Clean application every time. I mostly enjoy the toothbrush holder and quite large center compartment as they have dust covers. I am able to store my razor and face brush in a clean environment. I use the top compartments for my face and haircare products barring shampoo/conditioner — the adhesive is amazingly strong, I just wouldn’t put that kind of weight on it personally. I would definitely recommend and would definitely purchase again. Amazing product.” —Nina

Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in two sizes).


A tub of The Pink Stuff, aka an all-purpose paste you can use to scrub anything from cookware to cooktops and bathroom fixtures to rubber shoes shiny clean and free of stains. Just ~pink~ of all the icky things in your home you can finally clean with this stuff!,

Promising review: “Oh my gosh — this stuff is a life changer! Used it to get my fiberglass shower totally clean. Nothing else would get it done and this stuff brought my shower back to near new in one use. We’ve since cleaned a weird chalky film off our garage door, removed wall markings, and cleaned my storm door. We’ll never be without a jar (or three) of this stuff. Worth every penny.” —Nancy F.

A clever blending bottle that can take over every single part of the pancake-making process. It’s got a cap that doubles as a stand to fill it with mix, plus a built-in whisk ball so you can just shake it to mix your batter. Then you can squeeze out the perfect, mess-free amount into the pan. Batter up!, Amazon

They seriously thought of everything — it’s even top-rack dishwasher safe!

Promising review: “I LOVE this thing! Breakfast has never been faster or easier! And it doesn’t make noise that will wake everyone up while I am mixing. The silicone tip is real silicone and does well against cast iron. I have never been able to get my pancakes this fluffy until now! So great! It is also super easy to clean. The bottom comes off to fill it up, and it turns into a stand by setting the top into the bottom setting.” —KC Hunter

Get it from Amazon for $11.50.


Durable all-purpose wipes made with aloe vera and vitamin E for everything from your hands to your car to tricky stains like grease, makeup, adhesives, and permanent marker. Paper towels are cancelled.

Note that while these are great for messes and stains, they don’t disinfect.

Promising review: “These towels are awesome for so many things. They are large and very sturdy, so they work well for household cleaning. The real benefit for me, though, is having a wipe that works for things like the grill, the oven, the dashboard of my car, muddy shoes, chairs and umbrellas that go to soccer games and practices, and lawn furniture. I frequently wipe something down, rinse the towel, and wipe again. The wipes are heavy enough to go through three to four rinses and wipes and still hold up. The smell is mild and doesn’t linger on my hands or what I’ve wiped down. I use these almost daily, so the 90-count canister lasts about three months and the last towel is never dried out when I get to it. The lid closes securely, yet is easy to open and the towels dispense easily through the opening without getting bunched up. Because the canister is heavier than most, and the lid fits well, it’s easy to throw one of these in the trunk or cargo area, and I don’t worry about it leaking. The canister (minus the lid) is recyclable when the towels are gone — an added bonus.” —COMom

The marvelous Alleyoop Pen Pal, aka an incredibly fun and convenient four-in-one makeup pen that’ll remind you of the multicolor pens of your youth. Just click down the various levers for eyeliner, lip liner, highlighter, and an eye/eyebrow pencil, all in one portable and adorable package.


It’s vegan, and cruelty and paraben free, and the packaging is recyclable! Honestly, I’m fascinated by all the clever, time-saving beauty tools from this woman-founded brand — they look so cool and would totally upgrade your routine. Also, how did no one think of them till now?!?

Promising review: “I love the ease of this product. It’s so perfect and the colors are great for all looks — casual, fancy, quarantine extra, everything! I love how effortless it is and how easy it is to use. I’m serious that as a makeup novice, these colors are impossible to mess up. I love it! ” —Stephanie H.

Get it from Alleyoop for $25 (available in three shades).


Mike’s Hot Honey, a chili-infused honey that may make you realize you’ve been eating food wrong all your life — because pretty much anything is better with this stuff on it. Time to throw out all your other condiments, because you’ve found the one topping that works just as well for pizza and chicken as it does for ice cream and even in cocktails.


Check out BuzzFeed’s full hot honey review.

Promising review: “This mixed-up honey is absolutely fabulous. I gave in and ordered three bottles more after my initial order, because it’s really good on everything. And I mean EVERYTHING: soft pretzels, toast, biscuits, waffles, cereal, yogurt, ice cream, and definitely pizza. It gives everything in your kitchen a small kick of sweet-heat flavor without burning your mouth up. I’ve told many of my friends about this magical elixir and they all agree. This is the BEST specialty honey any of us have ever had.” —Jeff R. Clow

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.


A four-in-one hole repair product that is a squeeze bottle of spackle with a built-in primer, plus has a built-in putty knife on the top and a sanding pad on the cap, so even the least-handy people ever (me) can easily get their security deposit back with just one convenient product.


Promising review: “Buy!!! Buy!!!! 10/10. I have never used spackle before, and the other spackle Walmart had looked really complicated, so I gave this one a try. I’m so very happy with how easy it was to use and how the results were! I thought it was a little bit of product but I was wrong, it comes with a lot!! Also I love how it’s all in one, so you don’t have to keep going back and forth getting different tools and stuff! It’s so easy to use and takes no time at all!” —seyns

Get it from Walmart for $5.98.


An amazing and super-stretchy maxi dress with long straps you can wrap, tie, and drape in over 24 (!!!) different ways. Finally, the excuse you’ve been waiting for to order 24 new dresses (you can fit them all on one hanger 😉).,

Promising review: “I’ve ordered five different kinds of convertible dresses and this is by FAR the best! The fabric is thicker than others I’ve tried and the construction is impressive, especially for the cost! I love that front ties overlap, which makes it much more modest than many of the others! I’m 5’4″ and the length of the small was absolutely perfect!” —Enewbie

Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in women’s sizes S–XL and in 18 colors).


Or, for more high-fashion moments, an absolutely epic Hanifa robe dress you can rock as a coat, a dress, a sweater, a robe…it’s pretty much everything you could ever want it to be and more. Whatever type of garment you decide to wear it as, it’s here to help you make a dramatic entrance.


Sarah Jessica Parker wore the purple version of this beauty last year and yes, I have thought about it at least 50 times since. Hanifa is a Black woman–owned, Baltimore-based label known for its knits.

Get it from Hanifa for $269 (available in women’s sizes XXS/XS–L/XL and in eight colors).


A kids-size beanbag that can be stuffed with plushies or clothes and will actually give kids a fun reason to want to put their toys away — and then give ’em a comfy place to sit!


Promising review: “Love this bag! And so does my son. I purchased this in hopes of clearing up some of my son’s stuffed animal clutter. He was attempting to sleep with every animal he owns on his bed, but by morning they’d be all over his bedroom floor. They now have their own cozy home and he’s got a fun new chair to sit on in his room. I fully expected to have more animals than would fit, but we have loads of room to fill it up yet. Material and zipper are stronger than expected, which makes this mama super happy (son seems to be in a destructive phase, LOL!). Haven’t needed to clean it yet, but gave it 5 stars because I have no concerns with it holding up. Would buy again.” —Becca O.

Get it from Amazon for $29.97 (available in two colors).


The cutting board to end all cutting boards, because it comes with four interchangeable trays, all with measuring marks, including one with a built-in grater and another with a built-in herb stripper. This way, you can prep all your ingredients and set them aside in their own trays, all without switching between different kitchen gadgets. ✨Efficiency✨, people.


Promising review: “Everyone needs one of these. So easy to pull out, cut anything, measure anything, grate/shred anything, and even squeeze juices. I love all the different little containers to be able to not only store but do multiple things at once without food touching. This has been a game changer in my kitchen.” —Halls1026

Get it from the BuzzFeed Tasty collection at Walmart for $19.97.


A sleek toilet paper holder featuring a handy basket for storing your phone, a book, wipes, or whatever your on-the-john must-haves are without having to worry about dropping ’em in the bowl. It’s 2021, we all bring our phones to the loo, and honestly I think all toilet paper dispensers should be designed like this.


It comes with the necessary mounting hardware.

Promising review: “I used to have to put my stuff on the tile floor, but no more. This not only fits my iPhone, but it also fits my iPad Pro 10 1/2–inch standing up diagonally! It’s very strongly mounted to the wall with the two screws. I also love that it’s so easy to just slide the roll onto the hanger without the hassle of a spring-loaded spindle. Great product!” —Doby

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


An all-in-one salicylic acid spot treatment that really works on blemishes of any sort, from zits to ingrown hairs. It’s also vegan, cruelty and paraben free, moisturizing, and a travel- and TSA-friendly size.


A tube of this is currently in the mail on its way to me and I’m sooo excited to try it on all the random bumps and blemishes on my bod!

Promising review: “When I first got this, I used it on my face and saw some pretty incredible results, so I began using it near my bikini line as well to soothe a stubborn ingrown. It burned a bit at first, but over the next few days there was a noticeable difference. Wish I could insert a picture but, you know, haha.” —Nakya

Get it from Alleyoop for $12.


A multifunction pocket tool to keep on hand, because Scar may have been evil and all, but he had a point — you should always BE PREPARED. Even if you are someone (like me) who can’t tell different types of wrenches apart, you’ll be glad to have several at your disposal so you can be a hero next time you’re at a party and something breaks (or, ya know, someone needs a bottle opener).


Promising review: “This is just what I needed! There’s a screwdriver, four-position wrench, butterfly wrench, direction ancillary tool, two-position wrench, can opener, knife edge, ruler, bottle opener, and saw blade. I find it very useful for any random emergency. It also comes with a carrying case so I can store it in my bag.” —Johann Christine Alcaraz

Get it from Amazon for $5.11.


Or an 11-in-1 tool complete with (*takes big breath*) standard and needle nose pliers, a knife, a saw, a wire cutter, slotted and Phillips screwdrivers, a bottle opener, a can opener, a file, and a rope cutter. If you don’t want to be caught unprepared, this is a great option to keep in your junk drawer or car.


It also comes with a carrying case with a belt loop on the back!

Promising review: “This multitool is a must-have tool for everyone. I will be keeping this in my car for daily or emergency use. This tool is perfect. I really like the functionality of the pliers, and it is spring loaded so it auto opens for easy use. There are a couple of knives (one is serrated), a bottle opener, a can opener, screw drivers, a nail file, and more. The handle is comfortable in hand. My only complaint is the carrying case; the Velcro is not very good and it keeps opening. I still recommend this if you are looking for a budget multitool.” —Big Dawgs Fam

Get it from Amazon for $11.43.


A sheet of oh-so-clever window film that puts the fun in “multifunctional.” Not only will it give you the privacy you’ve been desperate for (hello, walking around in your undies in the middle of the day), but it’ll also provide a unique decor element to your home by projecting a cool prism effect when the sun hits it just right.,

Promising review: “My wife was against it but I was tired of giving the neighbors a show when I wanted the sunlight and the blinds open. Since it just peels off, she didn’t fight me about putting it on. Now she loves it. It allows her to keep the blinds open for the sunlight on her flowers and I get to walk around without clothes on. It gives a cool prism multicolor effect when light hits it. It isn’t completely opaque but blurs anything offensive and looks good.” —DaveM

Get it from Amazon for $9.98+ (available in seven sizes).


A handy-dandy dish squeegee sure to make anyone who has ever done dishes and touched icky leftover food or struggled to clean up a spill say, “Where have you been all my life?!?!” One side is curved so it works on bowls as well as plates, and it can clean up sinks and countertops just as easily as it can dishes.


It’s BPA free and dishwasher safe! I’m a big fan of the OXO brand and this was a BuzzFeed Shopping top seller I finally caved and ordered. I make a lot of orzo pasta, and anyone else who does knows those suckers really like to stick to the sides and bottom of the pot. This product is PERFECT for scraping those stubborn grains out. It feels so much less gross than a sponge, since your hand stays farther away from whatever you’re cleaning and it doesn’t just sit there wet and festering after you use it. You can rinse it off and toss it in the dishwasher!

Promising review: “This product is AMAZING. We live in a studio apartment with a small kitchenette. Our sink likes to spray everywhere, and we don’t have a garbage disposal. This product is not only is fantastic at scraping food off of our plates (so it doesn’t go down the drain), but it helps to squeegee the countertop when water has sprayed everywhere!!” —Elizabeth

This UK-based small business makes truly gorgeous art for book lovers!

A sleek and versatile pan with a built-in steamer and colander basket and a spatula that rests right in the handle. It’s designed to be able to sear, braise, sauté, boil, fry, and serve all in one, so you’ll get a ton of use out of this wonder. And even with all that practical stuff aside…it’s sooooooo pretty.

Our Place, Abby Kass/BuzzFeed

It’s got a nontoxic, nonstick coating and a smaller handle and pour spouts at the sides. Honestly, whoever designed this thought of everything. Check out BuzzFeed’s full rave review of the Always Pan.

Promising review: “This pan is EVERYTHING! I went from making pasta in the basket to steaming broccoli in it and then finishing my meal in there. Then I forgot about cleaning it because I’m lazy and the nonstick cleaned up so easily. The sponge they include is incredible — I do all my dishes with it now. Also it looks really cute sitting on my stove all day.” —Darby S.

A worth-the-splurge Roomba robot vacuum to really and truly clean your home for you. It is compatible with Alexa, works with an app that allows you to fully customize its routine and make a map of your home, and even EMPTIES ITSELF (!!!) into its docking port for up to 60 days. Yup, all you gotta do is program it and change out the bag every two months — I think even you have time for that.,

Reviewers swear by it for both hard wood floors and carpet!

Promising review: “This Roomba is the best time-saving smarthome life hack EVER! The new app is awesome! I’ve had a number of iRobot product over the years and I’m truly impressed by the advancements that they’ve made with the Roomba i6+. We have kids and a dog and have been stretched very thin during COVID, so we finally made the call to upgrade to a self-emptying model that we can run every single day without lifting a finger and will cover the entire main floor of our house. We couldn’t be happier with the experience and especially love the ‘favorites’ option in the new app. This seriously saves us multiple hours a week! Stop wasting your time vacuuming and spend that time doing something you love!” —Bollingsalley

Get it from Amazon for $691.


A three-in-one avocado tool that’s a splitter, de-pitter, and slicer all at once, because the only bad part about eating avocados is actually trying to get all that goodness out of the skin.


I have this and use it all the time. Like all OXO products, it’s sturdy, simple, and easy to use. TBH, most times I only use the splitter knife, but it’s worth it to me even just to not have to break out a super-sharp knife every time I want to eat an avocado (which is often). It’s very easy to clean and dishwasher safe, which is a must for lazy ol’ me.

Promising review: “This tool is awesome. It’s easy to cut open the fruit. The pit remover works well — just push onto the pit and give it a twist, and the pit pops right out. The best part is the slicer. It makes beautiful slices for a great presentation (see attached photo of slices…OK, one side came out perfectly, and I kind of messed up the other side). The tool can then be used to scrape any remaining fruit out of the skin. Really happy I bought this tool!” —NPR MAN

Versatile and glitzy celestial ear jackets with optional cascading stars in the back. Rock ’em with the fringe for a bold statement, or wear just the front for a simpler stud that still packs a punch. Heck, you could even use the fringe part with different stud earrings. However you style ’em, your lobes will look ~out of this world~.


Promising review: “Multifunctional earrings. Loved these!! They sparkle like wild, but what I really like even better is that you can wear the stars separately from the tassels for a daytime look. Then easily add the tassels for an evening wear look. Light on the earlobes.” —A. Lopez

Get them from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in two colors).


A genius butter dish and grip set that’ll put your butter knife out of business. This is all you need to both store and spread buttery goodness — just pop the stick straight onto the grip and spread away for hassle-free pan greasing.


It’s dishwasher safe and from a Miami-based small business!

Promising review: “Absolutely perfect. It holds a whole stick of butter and the butter stays in place — unlike some of the other products on the market that are supposed to serve the same purpose.” —Michelle
