Many of our favorite humble-but-useful kitchen upgrades fall into the under $25 category, so go nuts. Bottle stoppers? Adding to the cart. That condiment your friend’s been raving about? Already bought, my friend. A Y-peeler? Try three Y-peelers. Prime Day runs until midnight tonight and new deals will be dropping all evening, so check back for all the best Prime Day deals under $25.
Our least favorite step in any baking recipe: “Scrape down the bowl.” The paddle attachment of a KitchenAid stand mixer (which is on sale, BTW) leaves unmixed pockets of flour and butter along the sides and bottom of the bowl, meaning you need to stop every few minutes and attack your batter with a spatula. But this silicone-edge beater attachment scrapes the sides of the bowl as it mixes, ensuring all your ingredients are evenly incorporated.
Do you have a brodpisker yet? No? If you bake bread, make pancakes, or work with dough of any kind, a Danish dough whisk is an invaluable tool. No more picking gummy dough off wood spoons—or your hands. Get two for under $10 and gift one to the best baker you know.
We favor wood cutting boards for everything except raw meat. Grab three in different sizes for under $20 this Amazon Prime Day.
Like we said: We prefer wood cutting boards, but for raw meat and fish, plastic is where it’s at. These cutting mats have a nonslip back, can be bent to easily transfer chopped produce into bowls or pots, and—most essential—can be thrown into the dishwasher after coming into contact with raw meat.
If you want to make the pecan brittle for these cookies (and trust me, you want to make the pecan brittle for these cookies), you need a silicone baking mat. But even for simpler cookies, it makes cleanup a breeze.
Kare-kare sauce is tangy, peanut-y, and a touch funky, and it’s the backbone of this Filipino seared shrimp dish from chef Harold Villarosa. Fila Manila is the best store-bought option there is.
Joyce Chen kitchen scissors are a favorite of BA editors as well as food stylists everywhere. Sturdy yet precise, they boast roomy, brightly colored handles and small but sharp blades that cut through just about anything. They’re one of the best kitchen shears available—and certainly the cutest.
Yes, the Joyce Chen scissors can make quick work of slicing a homemade pie. But if you’d rather pizza-wheel it, this blue KitchenAid model is over half off.
Who knew that a tactical spork was a thing? This one comes with its own carrying case and can be disassembled to reveal a stainless-steel knife and a ferro rod.

Didn’t think so.
Why use a flimsy single-use plastic bag for your sandwich when there are reusable silicone Stasher bags? They’re dishwasher-, freezer-, microwave-, and oven-safe and come in a rainbow of colors.

How long does wine last after it’s opened? The answer is a frustrating “it depends,” but you can extend a bottle’s life by limiting the wine’s exposure to oxygen. Now is a great time to snag some stoppers, especially if you drink a lot of crown-capped bottles.
Senior food editor Christina Chaey loves this compact and incredibly easy-to-use Primula cold brew bottle—ideal for hot summer days. Brew the coffee right in the bottle and pop it into its neoprene sleeve for on-the-go caffeination.

Our favorite citrus juicer is small but mighty, and every cook should have one.
Why would you need something as analog as a mortar and pestle in your modern kitchen?

Every kitchen needs a Y-peeler. Make that three Y-peelers—you never know when you’ll need to make mashed potatoes for 20. They’re more ergonomic and efficient than a swivel peeler, and you’re less likely to nick yourself on a dull blade.
The other thing you’ll need for those mashed potatoes? A potato ricer. While not strictly necessary, a ricer will give you the creamiest, silkiest mashed potatoes of your life. This version from Chef’n FreshForce also works on other foods, like cauliflower and yams.

Some swear by two-step waiter wine keys, and some, like commerce writer Tiffany Hopkins, prefer an automatic wine opener with a built-in Vegas-style light show. The Secura electric wine opener does all the work, leaving her to happily sip her Sancerre with the knowledge that she never has to wiggle a cork out of a bottle again.
