8 Wacky Kitchen Gadgets—With Surprisingly Great Reviews—You Can Buy On Amazon


We could extoll the virtues of Amazon for days… but for the sake of brevity we’ll limit ourselves to the awesomeness that is Amazon’s kitchen gadget section. You can find nearly any appliance—often on sale—and have it to your doorstep in two days. But Amazon doesn’t just sell mainstream kitchen gadgetry. Oh no. It also sells some seriously niche gadgets that promise to make your life so much easier. While many offbeat kitchen gadgets just take up space and you hardly use them, reviewers seem to love these weird products. Take a look at the 8 wackiest kitchen gadgets on Amazon that have surprisingly stellar reviews.


8 Highly-Rated—But Incredibly Weird—Kitchen Gadgets On Amazon

Good Grips 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer




OXO Good Grips 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer

Rating: 4.5 stars

Considering the sheer amount of avocado toast and guacamole we make, this gadget will probably pay for itself.

Silicone Devil Oven and Toaster Rack Puller




Joie Silicone Devil Oven Rack Puller

Rating: 4.5 stars

This “fun and functional” oven pull may look cheesy (so cheesy), but if you’re prone to burning yourself while cooking, reviewers think it’s a necessity.

Dual Breakfast Sandwich Maker



Hamilton Beach 25490 Dual Breakfast Sandwich Maker

Rating: 4.5 stars

This seems like it would make an unnecessary mess, but reviewers think it's genius.

Kale, Chard, Collard Greens and Herb Stripper




Chef’n Kale, Chard, Collard Greens and Herb Stripper

"Seems silly but works fantastic," says a reviewer. We're down for anything that makes eating kale easier.

Stainless Steel 13” Splatter Screen




Culina Stainless Steel 13” Splatter Screen

Rating: 4 stars

We do hate it when our pasta sauce gets all over our stove...

Rub Away Bar




Amco Rub Away Bar

Rating: 4.5 stars

With over 900 reviews, there must be something to this hand de-stinking bar that we're missing. Reviewers say it removes the smell of garlic and onions from your hands. (One even makes her husband use it all over his body, so, you know, it's multi-functional.)

Carrot Sharpener


American Pride


American Pride Carrot Sharpener

Rating: 4 stars

We don't exactly know when you'd need sharpened carrots, but it has great reviews if you're into that sort of thing.

Fork Set Of 6




Splayd Fork Set Of 6

Rating: 4.5 stars

File under: Things that shouldn’t exist, but somehow do. This is a fork/spoon/knife hybrid. In theory, we guess this would be useful?
