9. Spoon rest; $ 7
It's inevitable to cause a bit of chaos while cooking, but there are little things that cooks can do to keep this mess under control.

Kitchen surfaces stay clean and when it comes to stirring or tasting something, the tool is within reach. This acacia wood storage by Kamenstein is not only useful – it also looks good next to the stove.
10. Air Fryer; $ 57

It is also compact and therefore the perfect complement to any kitchen size.
11. Cooking temperature magnetic; $ 7
When dealing with raw meat, it is best to manually determine the correct cooking temperature for a particular product. A magnetic temperature chart stores this information in a convenient location.
