Most people spend a lot of time in their kitchens. For some, it’s the busiest room in the house. From cooking, to eating, to entertaining friends and family, your kitchen is definitely a focal point in your home. I’ve curated a fun list of unique and cool kitchen items in a variety of price ranges that are fun, functional, and just plain cool. Some of these I already own while others are on my kitchen wish list! I hope you find something cool that you like for your kitchen! (And yes, we love teal! You can find many of these items available in multiple colors if you prefer something different.)

Loch Ness Kitchen Ladels: $6.99

How seriously cute are these Loch Ness Monster Ladels?! They can stack inside each other for cute and easy storage. They also have legs to keep them upright in the pot. And….they are dishwasher safe! I just love the bright colors and they look SO cute peeking out of a pot!




KitchenAid Mixer- Aqua Sky color: $239

This is almost the exact color KitchenAid Mixer that we have! Ours is called Robin’s Egg. I’ve always wanted a KitchenAid mixer and my parents got me one for my birthday this past year. It looks so cute in our kitchen! I seriously LOVE all the new colors. And…. we use it all the time for baking and cooking. It’s super easy to use! They have so many attachments available as well. You can really do a lot with it!

These mason jar canisters are ADORABLE! You get 4 in the set and they would look amazing on your counter! They are pre-labeled with “Flour,” “Sugar,” “Coffee,” and “Tea.”




Pizza Cutter Wheel: $11.90

I don’t know about you, but I’m always a little nervous about using a pizza slicer. This Pizza Cutter Wheel looks like it does the job SO much easier and safer. It’s available in red, green, or blue.





Ice Cream, Frozen Yogurt, and Sorbet Maker: $54

This ice cream maker not only looks super cute but sounds like it would be AMAZING during the summer, especially with kids! Okay, maybe all year long. It can make 1.5 quarts in less than 30 minutes. Sounds like the perfect way to end the night- start it when you sit down for dinner and then when you’re all done eating, you have a fresh treat ready!




Carrot Whisk: $15

I love holiday and seasonal items and this carrot whisk would be SO much fun to use during Easter! If your kids like to help out in the kitchen, they will probably love it also! Both the wires and the handle are coated with silicone which makes it easy to clean and comfortable to hold. And if you want to lick the batter of your carrot cake, I won’t tell anyone!



Porcelain Happy Face Bowl: $33

What can I say- I love everything about this amazing bowl! From the imperfectly round shape to the coloring to the face. Imagine starting your day with breakfast and a smile. SO much fun!




Snail-Shaped Silicone Tea Bag Holder- $3

We use a lot of silicone products in our kitchen. I love how they look and feel. I love the bright, fun colors, and how easy they are to clean. These cute snail tea bag holders come in a set of 10 assorted colors for just $3! They perch on the side of your mug or glass and look adorable while they hold your tea bag string. Keep a few at home and take some to the office or share with friends!



Roman Numeral Birthday Candles- $7

I’m not sure exactly what the age is when your birthday candles become a fire hazard, but these Roman Numeral Birthday Candles are a pretty genius idea! You get a set of 8 for just under $7, and you don’t have to try to light 50 candles before the wax melts on the first 10 so it’s a win win!




Silicone Rolling Pin- $9

Let’s just take a moment to look at the GORGEOUS color of this silicone rolling pin. I love this color! I’ve never used a silicone rolling pin before, but this one makes me want to bake all the things! And it’s only $9! I mean, come on. Christmas cookies? Done. Valentine’s Day cookies? Check. Sunday afternoon cookies. Yep.


Metal Bread Bin- Mint Green: $27

Once again, the design of this product is everything! I love bread a lot and my three year old loves bread even more! Whether you store this metal bread bin on your counter or in your pantry, it will look sooooo much better than without a bin. I kind of want my entire pantry to be organized with these style containers!



Dropp! Fruit Bowl- $131

If you are looking to add a splash of color to your kitchen- quite literally- this fruit bowl is perfect! It’s a bit pricey, but it’s also way cool!

Opening jars can be SUCH a pain! I almost always have to ask my husband for assistance.

The perfect blend of style, fun, colorful, and functional makes this idea for a gift for someone you know…..like yourself!





Oven Mits and Trivet Mats Gift Set- $25

  This fun gift set is perfect for any baker. You can two FDA approved silicone oven mits along with 4 nested silicone trivets for setting hot items. They stack within each other and are each a different size. I love that you get TWO oven mits because I always use two hands to get things out of the oven. I love the color of these. I love that they are made from silicone. Yep, I love this gift set! Don’t you?



Whale Sponge Holder: $18


I love this whale sponge holder! The color, the cuteness, everything! It would look so cute on the counter and it even includes two sponges!





Blue Paper Towel Holder: $27

This paper towel holder though. It’s so elegant, modern, sleek, and fun. We all use paper towels, but they aren’t exactly pretty. And I have never seen a paper towel holder that looks as cool as this. It’s made out of silicone and has a suction cup underneath to hold it in place.






Blue Mason Jar Measuring Cups: $24


I’ve had my eye on these Mason Jar measuring cups for awhile now. At this point, I’m sure you can sense a theme for our kitchen. I just think measuring cups can be kind of a pain sometimes and here they are all pretty and neatly stacked together. You could even leave them next to the stove and they’d look cute! The set includes 1 Cup, 1/2 Cup, 1/3 Cup and 1/4 Cup and they are dishwasher safe!



Ceramic Pineapple Cookie Jar: $27

I’m actually really glad that pineapples became a trendy thing. This Pineapple cookie jar is so cute! I love the symmetry and style of pineapples. They’re like a metaphor for life: a bit rough around the edges but so sweet at the core. Whether you actually use this in your kitchen or perhaps even at your desk filled with office supplies, it’s oh so cute and fun!




Kate Spade New York Teapot: $50


A beautiful Kate Spade teapot is not just functional but it’s timeless. Create lasting memories with loved ones over tea and add some style to your kitchen in the process! It’s beautiful and at a great price, you can’t pass this up!




Mixing Bowl (Set of 3): $22


These mixing bowls just look fun! I love the white with pops of color, the easy grip handles and rubber lining on the underside, and the convenient built in pour spouts. The 3 different sizes include 1.8 quart- 3.6 quart- 6.5 quart. They are also dishwasher safe.



Rub-A-Way Stainless Steel Bar: $8

So I have to be honest, I didn’t actually know what this was until I looked it up further. And wow, it is so cool! So this stainless steel bar is used like a bar of soap to rub away odors from your hands. You can use it with or without water and it’s dishwasher safe. They say it works on all kinds of things like fish, onions, and more! I’ve never been into bar soap but I would TOTALLY give this stainless steel bar a try. What a cool product!


Stainless Steel Chocolate Fountain: $48

Imagine the endless and delicious possibilities that accompany your very own chocolate fountain! Chocolate covered strawberries for Valentine’s Day, Chocolate covered marshmallows with the kids, Chocolate covered fruit for a party, so many fun ideas! This would be a must have for the holidays and other parties and could be used to prepare treats or let guests participate and make their own. So fun!





Portable Ice Machine- $99

Ladies and gentlemen, let’s take a moment to appreciate this handy little nugget ice maker. That’s right- “the good ice.” You could make up to 26 pounds a day of those amazing little ice nuggets. Ice tea, smoothies, and pretty much all other drinks will never be the same again. It’s amazing and I definitely want one!





Giant Cupcake Pan Mold: $19

Whether you have kids like me, or you just love cake –also like me– this giant cupcake pan mold should be a staple item in your kitchen!
