We’re not into clutter — but we ARE into function. These six tools are must haves in your kitchen and won’t take up too much space. From cherry pitting to collapsible salad spinners, we put these tools to the test and they all passed our high standards.

Non-Skid Mixing Bowls

We love this set of 3 mixing bowls from Sur La Table. Why? Stainless Steel doesn’t chip, break, absorb food odors, is lightweight, and cleans so easily. These bowls have non-skid rubber bases that help avert most kitchen disasters. And they have rims that let you securely move or carry the bowl even if your hands are “slippery-while-cooking.”  BUY NOW

Cherry and Olive Pitter

We’re not usually fans of gadgets that have a single function that we don’t use very often — and fresh cherry season is just a few weeks each year. But if you don’t want to be sorry you started working on a fresh cherry dessert (it’s not easy to pit cherries and they spit juice everywhere), you really need a Cherry Pitter. Totally worth it, and olive season does last all year. BUY NOW

12-In-One Kitchen Tool

Going camping or staying at a rental house? You can pack a cheese grater, zester, garlic crusher, peeler, carving fork, stirring spoon, corkscrew, can and bottle opener, channel knife, serrated knife and a small paring knife. Or you can pack this one multitool gadget and you’re set. BUY NOW

Clip-On Silicone Colander

This really works! No more struggling to drain pasta water or keep food in a bowl while draining off the liquid. Clips to most round pots and bowls. And it’s on sale now! BUY NOW

Collapsible Salad Spinner

Salad spinners are one of those tools that every one needs and no one has space for… which is why we really love this collapsible one. Easy to clean and dishwasher safe, too! BUY NOW
