1. A cupboard with spaces for storage and display, so you don't have to choose between function and fashion.

Target

Promising review: "My husband and I recently moved and needed a new piece of furniture to serve as our coffee station; after searching for a solid week, purchasing and returning several alternatives from other stores, we took a chance purchasing this online. We are more than pleased with how this piece not only fits our storage needs but also adds some warmth to our dining room/kitchen area!"—Mrs007

Price: $129.99


2. A Ninja blender that'll make perfectly smooth soups, purees, smoothies, and more, at a fraction of the price tag of some other high-powered blenders.

Target

Promising review: "Just bought this for my wife as a gift at Target today. She loves making smoothies. Also, it ground up her oatmeal incredibly fast. Before the Ninja, I had to use a mortar and pestle LOL, and it took so long! Now everything is a breeze. Would highly recommend it!"—Anonymous

Price: $99.99


3. An Instant Pot to totally speed up basically whatever you can think of to make. It's truly a magic machine.

Target

Promising review: "This is my favorite thing in the kitchen. I've used it every day since purchasing and haven't been disappointed once. My husband refers to it as the 'kitchen miracle' because it makes amazing food SO fast! My only recommendation is to buy a second ring if you plan on making sweet items (like yogurt or cheesecake) so you have one for sweet and one for savory."—Mamatomonkeys

Price: $79.99 (originally $99.99)


4. Or an Instant Pot cookbook for anyone who's been letting it languish on their countertop since Christmas.

Target

Promising review: "Bought this cookbook a few weeks ago, and it’s a game-changer! It is a must if you’re just learning to use an Instant Pot. The introduction alone is so valuable — all the info that’s lacking in the manual that the pot comes with. The best part is that I enjoy cooking again! The step-by-step pictures and directions make it so easy to follow. I’ve made a bunch of the recipes already and plan to keep trying more! If you’re unsure, just go for it! You won’t regret it."—Betsy

Price: $15.99


5. An upholstered bar stool that'll come equally in handy if you're chatting with guests at a dinner party, or just getting the kids breakfast before school.

Target

Promising review: "I love this stool! I bought two for my bar and love it. It's very comfortable, the color's perfect, and it looks fancy. I would highly recommend."—Jin

Price: $64.99 (available in five colors)


6. An espresso and cappuccino maker because you deserve to have a fancy coffee in the morning! You're worth it.

Target

Promising review: "A friend recommended this espresso machine to me and I am so glad she did. Hers has lasted her two years so far. I think for a $30 machine that is amazing! I’ve used mine a few times already and I love it. So easy to use and clean."—Kiana

Price: $29.99


7. A SodaStream Fizzi that'll scratch your soda and seltzer itch, without creating a ton of plastic waste, and for a lot cheaper to boot!

Target

This value kit includes the Fizzi, a CO2 canister, a one liter carbonating bottle, and two half-liter travel bottles.

I have a Fizzi and I love it — I drink a ton of seltzer and the pile of bottles in my recycling always made me feel guilty. With the SodaStream (and the flavor drops) I can get the exact same thing, without the hit on the environment or my wallet. Plus, it makes lugging groceries back to my apartment a lot easier, since I don't have the weight of all that pre-made seltzer to deal with.

Price: $89.99 (available in two colors)


8. A wheeled kitchen island perfect for tiny apartment kitchens where you're always scrounging for more storage and countertop space.

Target

Promising review: "Great piece for the price. It looks as good in person as in the picture. Solid. Lots of room for work space on top and two shelves of items underneath. The two drawers are a bit short, but will fit silverware or pot holders."—nlforrett

Price: $322.99


9. A rapid egg cooker that was just made for meal preppers. You can make a week's worth of eggs in minutes, and have them to snack on or use in recipes at a moment's notice.

Target

Promising review: "Great! Ordered since my boys and husband all like hard-boiled eggs, but since I don't eat them I don't like making them. I like that this is so easy! I can make a small batch and they are fresh for them. I can prepare the eggs and start the cooker all while holding my baby and using one hand. And they come out perfect. Easy to peel and separate the yolk, far better than mine ever do. It takes the guesswork out and is worth the convenience for the small price. Also, this is very small, easy to store in cabinet."—merrymarry

Price: $17.39 (available in three colors)


10. A Magnolia Table cookbook so you can add some Joanna Gaines flavor to your cooking as well as your decor.

Target

Promising review: "I’ve been eyeing this book up for a while and finally decided to purchase it. I haven’t made anything from it yet, but I’ve been looking through the recipes and planning things out. The recipes seem very easy! I hate cooking meals where a lot is involved and they seem so simple. Also, a lot of the ingredients used are just items that you would normally have on hand, which is great. Having pictures is also a plus for me, as well. I love cookbooks that show you what you’re making."—Kayla

Price: $16.59


11. A buffet table that's just begging for you to load it up with a delicious brunch and let everyone go to town.

Target

Price: $262.49 (originally $349.99, available in two colors)


12. A KitchenAid stand mixer to bring your baking game to the next level, especially if you're a bread baker who's sick of hand-kneading.

Target

Promising review: "I have used a much less expensive stand mixer and I can tell a difference. This is the first one that I have purchased. It is very simple to use. It runs much quieter than the less expensive stand mixer. Clean up was easy. The mixer is heavy for people that have trouble lifting things. The weight is not an issue for me. I am leaving it on my counter. It looks nice sitting out."—Michelle

Price: $259.99 (available in two colors)


13. Or a spiralizer attachment if your KitchenAid already gets a ton of use and you're looking to expand what you can do with it.

Target

Promising review: "Love, love, love my new spiralizer attachment for my KitchenAid mixer. Easy to use, super easy to clean. Peels my apples while slicing to make apple pies easily and quickly. I'm on a diet and make zucchini noodles as a filler for my dinners."—Newkitchentoy

Price: $99.99


14. An acacia wine rack for storage that also manages to be ~classy~ and ~sophisticated.~

Target

Promising review: "It is very nice looking, and I like how many bottles of wine it holds. Like other reviewers stated it will even hold larger wine bottles in diameter. It's replacing my wrought iron wine holder that only held three bottles, yet takes up about the same amount of space."—Mom of 4

Price: $35.99


15. A floral bakeware set that's super deep and sturdy, and it'll also make the cutest lasagna you ever did see.

16. A bar cart with gold accents that'll totally pop, whether you use it as a bar, for coffee, or just for holding dishes and tchotchkes.

17. A convection toaster oven that'll come in handy for so much more than toast. This baby can bake, broil, roast, and do basically everything a standard oven can do, but without heating up your entire kitchen, so it's extra perfect for summer.

Target

Promising review: "I needed a small toaster oven to replace one that stopped heating. This easily holds four pieces of bread or waffles and heats instantly. It is extremely hot so we turn down the temperature. Makes school morning breakfasts a breeze as you can heat a frozen waffle in under three minutes! Great price. Would recommend."—twinmommy

Price: $49.99


18. A Rachael Ray nonstick cookware set to finally replace those scratched pans that you've been keeping around for too long.

Target

Promising review: "I love this cookware! The color is beautiful, the pans are large with tons of cooking surface space, the handle is comfortable. The pans are also a nice weight and clean up is a breeze."—TLC

Price: $139.99 (available in three colors)


19. An air fryer that'll give everything you cook with it Extreme Crunch.

Target

Promising review: "I was skeptical, but everything we've made in this was amazing! Crispy fries and onion rings, wings from frozen in 35 minutes, mozzarella sticks like they came from a restaurant. It's bulky, but definitely worth the storage space it takes up!"—tablefor5

Price: $99.99 (originally $129.99)


20. A pizza baking set to make the best food ever even easier to make at home.

Target

Promising review: "This pizza stone is easy to use and cooked our pizza evenly. It’s important to always put it in a cool oven, then preheat. It’s important to dry completely after washing. Doing those things will make it last for a long time. I’m very happy with ours!"—nrau

Price: $11.39


21. A five-section serving platter that'll elevate even the simplest chips and dip to Fine Dining.

Target

Promising review: "I love the large size of this serving set (It is bigger than I thought!) The fact that the material is non-breakable melamine helps me feel assured that none of the four sections or middle bowl will break through the years. Plus, the lovely, crisp white color goes with any holiday, dinner occasion, party, etc. I truly couldn’t be happier with this piece and will be buying more as gifts!!"—Rachel

Price: $9.99


22. A set of ceramic condiment bowls, perfect for serving dinner or to use to hold your mise en place while you cook.

Target

Price: "Very cute and durable! We love these bowls for putting snacks, dips, and sides. We will probably buy a second set because we love them so much!"—Cindy

Price: $6.99


23. An acacia bowl that'll make your veggie lunch as far from Sad Desk Salad as it's humanly possible to be.

Target

Promising review: "I bought this bowl for my daughter as a Christmas gift and she really likes it. I liked it so much I am back to order one for myself. The bowl is a little larger than I thought but I like that because it makes it quite easy to toss a salad. It is lighter than I thought but I like that too. Very attractive."—Shelly

Price: $28.49


24. A cooking tools set because sometimes you just need to freshen up your essential tools. Plus, at some point, one of these will have gone missing, and no one wants to have an incomplete or mismatched set.

25. A stainless-steel knife set that'll cut your prep time down to a fraction of what it used to be. No more struggling through carrots, crusty bread, and even tomatoes!

Target

Promising review: "After eight years of using my old KitchenAid knife set, I decided to update and purchase this. This set is a great deal and includes all the knives I typically use plus more. The fact that it has a built-in sharpener is great! The stainless-steel is nice — my old knives had plastic handles and I didn't care for that. These seem durable and well-made. The knives are sharp and cut with ease — even on food that is sometimes harder to cut like sweet potatoes. They are easy to clean. The maple color of the block is also an elegant and nice touch that I love! I am very happy with this set and highly recommend to others!"–Amber

Price: $99.99


26. A cast-iron skillet great for cooking indoors and outdoors alike. If you keep up the seasoning it'll last for basically forever, and give extra flavor to all of your food.

Target

Promising review: "I own several cast iron pots and pan and needed a larger skillet. The Lodge 12-inch skillet is perfect for frying chicken or other items that need room. The pre-seasoning made it ready to use upon arrival and it cleans easily with water and a brush, a coating of oil and wipe with a paper towel and it is ready to store for the next use."—Anonymous

Price: $22.99


27. A set of OXO airtight food containers that'll keep things from going stale, and protect your essentials from any critters or pests. Plus they save on storage space!

Target

Promising review: "I love my OXO airtight containers! They look great on my countertop and keep the food fresh inside. I love being able to see what I have. Would recommend it!"—Ckimmy2002

Price: $49.99


28. A mixing bowl set with pourable spouts that'll make transferring ingredients a breeze.

Target

Promising review: "In love with these bowls. At first I thought they weren't deep enough, but when I used the large one with my hand mixer to whip cream for a birthday cake, it was just perfect! I never thought I would need the other two (mostly needed a large bowl to use with hand mixer), but they are all great!! I used the small one with the medium one when I was making pancakes from scratch and needed to mix wet ingredients separately from the dry ones (and then combine). The price is a HUGE plus. Would most definitely recommend these."—NHaas

Price: $8


29. A mandoline slicer that's a little intimidating, but once you get the hang of it, will give you perfect slices every time.

Target

Promising review: "This is the first time I bought something online without reading reviews and I’ve got to say I am not disappointed in this product! I used it to slice potatoes for scalloped potatoes and ham and it is so sharp I wasn’t even sure it was slicing anything. I couldn’t feel it working, but sure enough it was slicing amazingly. I love that you can change the thickness so easily and unlock it to clean it and access the other blades. I’m so happy it comes with four blades to do multiple things. This will come in handy with the garden this year. Totally worth the price and I’m glad I didn’t get a cheaper one that didn’t offer as much."—Hsax9

Price: $41.99


30. A dinnerware set with a beaded rim that'll add just a touch of elegance without distracting from your beautiful plating skills.

Target

Promising review: "I am always nervous with buying new dishes, that they will be the type that when microwaved—the dishes heat up and the food/beverage does not. THESE dishes however, microwave BEAUTIFULLY! I reheated my coffee this morning and the coffee got piping hot and the mug was only comfortingly warm to the touch. Perfect! They are also beautiful. A soft white that compliments all kitchens and looks so attractive with your food. Makes for a great table and beautiful presentation. I am so pleased!"—Kelsey

Price: $49.99


31. And a classic glass cake stand because your frosting skills deserve to be put on display.
