A coffee maker. A good skillet. A sharp knife and good cutting board.

There are certain kitchen utensils that everyone just knows they need. They make cooking easier, safer, and all around better. They’re the first things you buy when moving into a new place or find yourself becoming an adult. They’re simply essential.

However, what everyone doesn’t know is that they’re missing key components in their kitchen line-ups. The following items are nearly guaranteed to be absent in your kitchen, but once purchased you’ll wonder how you ever lived without these fabulous food finds.

4. Rapid Egg Cooker

This machine makes meal prep a breeze. Boil a batch of hardboiled eggs to snack on throughout the week. Then, make an omelet, poach an egg, or even scramble them for a quick meal or snack without the need for the stove.

5. “Lazy” Utensils

Spoons, spatulas, and ladles that hook on to the side of pots and pans may seem unnecessary, but they are invaluable in the kitchen. You’ll no longer have to spend time cleaning splatters from stray utensils, searching for the spoon the fell into the pot, or repeatedly washing a serving spoon do to reuse. Instead, hook the utensils on your cookware until you’re certain you no longer need them, and they’ll be waiting to be thrown into the washing machine hassle-free.
