These Are The Best Kitchen Gadgets On Amazon & They're All Under $20

Elizabeth Buxton

Amazon is an online shopping treasure trove, and with Prime Day finally here (woohoo!), we've found enticing deals on all kinds of gems. It's easy to get lost in pages upon pages of Amazon's funky, affordable buys from fashion to tech, home, and beyond. There's even Prime Pantry for all your snacking needs at the click of a button. But we think the real sweet spot of this all-encompassing site (especially during its biggest sale of the year) is inside its unique and cheap kitchen gadget offerings. Because stumbling upon and scooping up finds like, for example, a pair of cat paw tongs, tastes like a true kitchen victory.

The land of Amazon cooking tools is a place where all our wildest culinary fantasies can (and do) come true. You can fill your shopping cart with kale de-leafers (it's a thing), squishy silicone lobster claws to grip your pots, sleek futuristic rocks to hold your recipes, a metallic hand soap to get rid of lingering odors... the list goes on. These gadgets will add a little more magic to your cooking, and all for under $20 each. Because, really, who needs regular tongs when you can serve your guests with plastic paws? Ahead, check out the most fantastical and affordable of these finds and get inspired to get creative in the kitchen.
