A pair of bag-carrying handles if making trip…after trip…after trip…carrying the groceries home is just not working after you. Want to carry ALL the bags at once (without hurting your hands)? These’ll do the trick.
Promising review: “My sole complaint about this is that it didn’t exist twenty years ago, because it could have saved me so much aggravation over the years!I am 100% one of those people who would rather dislocate both my arms and have them fall off halfway between my car and front door than make two trips with grocery or shopping bags. Many times I have had thin plastic bag handles sawing through my hands. This could solve one of the most perplexing mysteries of California, too: why there are shopping carts literally everywhere in grocery parking lots EXCEPT the cart returns. People, buy one of these and you can carry all your bags to your car! Also, the trick of twisting them all closed inside your vehicle and not slinging your groceries from side to side when you drive home… brilliant. Buy this amazing hunk of plastic without delay!” —E. Rose

A super-speedy wine stain remover so you can quickly undo Sandra’s sloshing all over your pristine white couch and carpet, without losing your ~temper-nillo~. Now you can get back to enjoying the party.
Promising review: “Totally impressed! The unassuming generic packaging and label left me a bit skeptical but this stuff is almost as exciting as the wine I spilled! This cabernet stain sat on my ivory faux fur blanket for over a month before I tried this product. Completely gone in one try! Get this. Seriously. You won’t be disappointed.” —Persian Tess

A microwave rice steamer to make burnt stovetop rice (or waiting like…40 minutes for your rice cooker to finish) a thing of the past. Just add your grain, water, and pop in the micro!
Unlike traditional plug-in rice cookers, you can throw this whole thing in the wash, so there’s no potential for mold or other grossness.
Promising review: “I’ve had this for seven months now, and I think it’s still my favorite tool in my entire kitchen. I eat a ton of rice, and I love how easy this is to use and how easy it is to clean. I put in one cup of white rice and two cups of water, and microwave it for 15 minutes. It comes out consistent every time. In the past, I’ve cooked rice on the stove and used an electronic rice cooker, and I prefer this microwave one to both. I hated how messy cooking on the stove is, and my electric cooker got mold down inside the part that you can’t wash. With this, there’s no mess, and there’s nowhere you can’t clean or that can trap mold or bacteria. I can throw every part of it into the dishwasher after I’m done with it. It’s awesome! I wish I’d had this back in college.” —C. Stone

A set of synthetic clip-in extensions for anyone who doesn’t want to wait months…or years…to grow out their hair. You’ll look like you grew mermaid-worthy hair overnight. We’re talking 3,000 five-star reviews on Amazon, too!
Promising review: “Okay, so I am very picky about hair extensions. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on numerous sets, and have never been completely satisfied. UNTIL NOW! These are BY FAR my favorite — and for such an amazing price! If you’re worried that this deal is too good to be true (because I was) then stop worrying! And buy these extensions. Also, I have very short hair and they still look great! They’re very full and luscious. And you can straighten them! I’m very happy!” —Makenzie Long

A new version (it has a built-in light now!!) of the original basic Kindle so you can *instantly download* your next read. No walking to the bookstore or waiting two days for your paperback to arrive with Prime shipping.
It’s glare-free, and has an adjustable front light so you can read in ANY lighting condition — including outside and in the dark!
PSST! Right now, for the same price, you get three months of Kindle Unlimited included!
Promising review: “I chose this kindle based on the features I was looking for. So far so good. I like that you can adjust the font, size, and backlight brightness. My other kindle did not have a backlight so I could only read it while sitting under a bright lamp. This one I can read anywhere – even at the beach. And so easy to download books from my public library. I highly recommend.” —Golfer2002
Get it from Amazon for $69.99.
As a personal note, I love my Kindle SO MUCH. I get books immediately downloaded from the library, and I bring it with me *everywhere* I go. I’m literally reading 10 times as many books a year as I was pre-Kindle.
A drain snake with over 4,000 micro hooks and a slim design to shimmy down any drain (you don’t even need to remove the cover) and snag all the hairs and goop that’s clogging the system — in one quick pull.
Real talk: after learning about this, I ordered two and used it on my bathroom sink and shower. HOLY KAMOLE does it work. So gross, so effective.
Promising review: “I bought one of these because of the reviews and I thought, with six kids I know we have slow drains. So I break it out on a Saturday night and started with my bathroom sink. OH MY GOSH! Disgustingly amazing. In two seconds I pulled out a massive hair/soap clog. It was truly amazing and so gross! I went to work on the other bathroom drains and they weren’t nearly as amazing or as quick but I pulled a bunch of dried hair out of the kids’ tub. So after five drains, I had my fun. I’ve spent a small fortune on Drano type products that never seem to work. I won’t buy them again. I was even so amazed I shared the nasty pic on Facebook and didn’t think twice about somebody judging me. Get this. Be prepared to throw it away as you’re not going to want to clean it.” —Jennifer R. Little

A foot filing rasp that’ll undo years of callus buildup in mere MINUTES. No waiting for intense creams to do their work, no getting pedicure after pedicure — if you want to see results ASAP, you’ll think it’s ~grate~.
Promising review: “This thing is pretty amazing. I was skeptical for sure, since I’ve tried all kinds of lotions, balms, and stone-based products, none of which helped my heels whatsoever. I’ve worn socks to bed for years, because if I don’t the sheets hardly last a week before they have holes rubbed through them. My wife ordered this thing that looks like a mini cheese grater, lol, and after two minutes — two minutes! — of rubbing it on my heel, it’s a complete 180. I never would’ve believed it until I tried it myself. This is well worth double what it costs.” —LBK
Get it from Amazon for $7.58 (available in black and white, and in packs of two).
A microfiber cloth to remove every single trace of dirt and makeup (even waterproof formulas!) with just water and in ONE swipe, so you can get to bed STAT without breaking out 1,000 different makeup removers, cleansers, etc.
And the cloths are super soft, so you won’t have to resort to harsh scrubbing that can dry out your face.
Promising review: “This product… I have no clue how this works, but it does! Let me start by saying I was wearing a full face of make up. I mean foundation, contour highlight, eyeliner, seriously the whole nine yards. All I did was wet it and wiped my face, my jaw literally dropped. This is hands down my favorite make up remover at the moment. The best part is that they are reusable so you don’t have to keep buying those expensive disposables that leave your face feeling greasy. And honestly, four dollars? Just buy them. Trust me, you won’t regret it.” —Heather and Ryne Griffith

BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer
^That’s me! I love this handy lil’ device SO much. Check out my in-depth review for all the deets!
Promising review: “I really regretted this purchase at first, seemed like it was just a vibrator, the shape was weird considering the angles of a face, the two different sides felt the same. BUT THEN……. I dried my face with a white towel and there was not a speck of makeup left on the towel and I didn’t have a drop of mascara raccoon eye look left on my face. This is the cleanest my face has ever been. I will keep using it” —hine0108

Two pairs of self-tying shoelaces so you can head out the door for a quick jog or grocery run *truly* quickly — just slip them through the loops of any lace-up shoe and slip ’em on your feet.
Reviewers note they’re also great for people with limited mobility AND for putting sneakers on quickly during triathlons — every second counts!
Promising review: “Love my Lock Laces. I have tried other brands, but lock laces are the true original and you can tell in the quality and performance. I like to replace all my traditional laces with lock laces, makes just tossing on some shoes to run out to the mailbox or take a quick trip so much easier. And, no more laces coming loose all the time!” —Joshua Bolio
Get two pairs from Amazon for $14.99 (available in seven colors; one size fits all).
A tub of extra large, heavy duty cleaning wipes to get tough jobs done in no time flat. No spraying, scrubbing, rinsing, scrubbing, and rinsing again. One wipe = the job is done. Now you get FINALLY get around to what you actually *want* to do.
Promising review: “I think these wipes are made out of magic — because they can clean just about anything with very little effort! One wipe cleaned my ENTIRE BATHTUB, including the hard water buildup and some residual soap scum. The wipe stayed wet for the entire use, and there was absolutely no sweating involved. I hate cleaning but I was so pumped about the tub I took wipe #2 to my hood vent and good golly it’s like it’s brand new. I’ve told everyone I know to buy these. I know they’re pricey but I swear the magic is there folks.” —Jen M.

Promising review: “I’m not one to leave reviews, but this product deserves it! Holy cow!

This shampoo is not drying at all and just after two washes I achieved my desired results! I can’t recommend it enough!” —Rachael

An Instant Pot for whipping up press-the-button-and-watch-the-magic-happen dishes and meals — in much less time than a slow cooker!
Promising review: “This is one of those rare products that actually lives up to the hype and the positive comments. I just finished cooking my first meal with this Instant Pot, a pot roast. I historically would make that in a Crock–Pot but this is much faster (about 1 hour total vs 8 hours). It’s also convenient that you can sear the meat first in the instant pot using the sautée setting without needing to use a separate frying pan. Great product.” —Rob Rob

A Squatty Potty for anyone who can’t just SIT AROUND all day on the toilet, waiting to poop and reading the back of their shampoo bottle. You now have 20 minutes back in your day.
If you somehow still don’t know what a Squatty Potty is, it’s a toilet stool that keeps your feet raised while pooping. ~Going~ in this position is supposed to fully relax your Puborectalis muscle, meaning you have an easier elimination, with no straining.
And if you think that’s TMI, just try it and see.
Promising review: “I love Squatty Potty and you will too. It works like a charm. You will wonder how you got along without it all these years. Think ‘Laundry Chute!’ That’s the best way I can explain it. You will have more time on your hands now, that you own a Squatty Potty. You go into the bathroom and you are out in seconds, not 10; 15; or 20 minutes as in the past. Business owners should buy these for their bathrooms, as their employees will take less time on bathroom breaks, really! In fact if the government would invest in these for every bathroom, the legislative process would even speed up. You will be glad you got one!” —campromise

If you want a ~prettier~ one for your bathroom, Squatty Potty also makes a teak wood version ($69.99) and a Bamboo version ($67.57).
A pet hair–removing roller with a patented brush design (and *no* adhesive strips) to rid your lovely black sofa of all your furry friend’s shedding in a quick roll — so you can get back to cuddling together.
Promising review: “We live in a household that contains two humans, two dogs, and two cats. It’s a real Noah’s Ark furnished with a black sectional couch. Our dogs absolutely hate the vacuum. So much so they will attack the cleaner head with their vicious bite even before we power it on. This makes the task of cleaning our couch extremely unpleasant and nearly impossible. Thanks to Chom Chom, we no longer have this problem! With a simple, quick, SOUNDLESS sweep, we’re able to keep our couch pet-hair-free in blissful peace. This tool does an amazing job picking up pet hair but not so much with crumbs. We were so impressed, we gifted these as Christmas presents for all of our pet-loving friends.” —Magpie

A mini steamer to make short work of wrinkles in the morning. How short? It heats up in 90 SECONDS and releases creases and set wrinkles even faster.
I have this steamer and love it, too! Learn more in my full review: I’m Not Joking, This Mini Clothing Steamer Will Help You Be A Better Adult.
Promising review: “I have never successfully ironed anything in my life! I have only attempted to iron something once so I constantly live in wrinkled clothes….or I did. Now with this amazing steamer I don’t have to worry about that anymore, and it’s so quick and easy to use! Fill with water, warm, and point at clothes that need some work done. It’s so quick too that I am able to use it quick before leaving for work. Plug it in, and it instantly begins to heat the water. And then it takes only moments to steam out the wrinkles. It also comes with a travel bag! So glad I bought this!! Now I will look way more put together!” —Sarah Smith
Get it from Amazon for $25.97.
Or — more realistically, tbh — a bottle of Downy wrinkle release spray you can just spritz on and magically reveal crease-free clothing when you can’t bear to even wait the 90 seconds for your steamer to heat up. There are other things to be done!
Promising review: “This stuff is the bomb dot com. You just spray it on your clothes, smooth out the clothes with your hands quickly, wait a few minutes and the clothes are wrinkle free! I hate ironing, so this is magic. Obviously it won’t work on hard creases but wrinkles from the dryer, for example, it will get rid of.” —J. Larsen

A Muller veggie chopper to turn your onion-cutting tears into tears of joy when you realize the whole dang thing is diced with one press of the lever. Because your need for fresh salsa can’t wait.
It comes with the chopper itself, two super-sharp dicing discs (one for 6.8mm dices and one for 12.6mm dices), and a cleaning brush.
Get it from Amazon for $20.99.
Promising review: “This is the BEST chopper I have found and I have purchased many. This works so well that I bought two. Other choppers fail, sometimes on the first time. This chopper has several built-in features that lock the attachments in place as well as locks the hinge of the chopper in place. Other choppers do not have these features and are very fragile and break easier. I searched a long time to find this chopper and I won’t buy anything else. I chop fruits and vegetables every day and this chopper is a life saver to ensure that all chopped items are the same size and works every time. It’s a winner!” —LeviWilliams
A pair of cactus-shaped dryer balls whose prickles will ensure your laundry dries quicker and gets softer than ever. Those towels that take FOR-E-VER ( The Sandlot voice) to dry? No more.
Promising review: “I don’t know what kind of sorcery this is, but these things work. It used to take three cycles to dry my comforter and bed sheets. I’m one of those set-it-and-forget-it people, so I’d always forget to turn the dryer back on for round two and three, which meant that at midnight, I’d remember the sheets and comforter were still in the dryer, undoubtedly damp because I didn’t run them through the dryer another two times. So I finally bought these puppies and as usual, I dried the comforter and bed sheets once, and forgot to check on them. That night, my husband asked where our sheets were since they weren’t on the bed at bed time. Then he groaned, and asked if I remembered to really dry them. So I checked the dryer and lo and behold, they were dry! I have actually remembered to check the dryer once after drying the bed sheets and they were dry as soon as the first cycle was over. So, it’s a miracle. These things work. Tl;dr: I’m bad at laundry; these make me good.” —Gabby

A pack of Avarelle pimple patches formulated with tea tree oil and calendula oil (to heal and shrink zits faster overnight). And they come in four(!) sizes — small, medium, and large circles PLUS large, square patches so you can easily treat and shrink clusters of pimples all at once.
A lot of reviewers who have also tried Cosrx and Nexcare patches prefer these!
Promising review: “I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots, and these are hands-down the best on the market. I’m a performer at Walt Disney World, and a clear complexion is required. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a Whitehead, and a pimple I shouldn’t have picked and has been a bump for about three weeks now.) I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY’RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is also ideal, because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back on themselves. Do yourself and your complexion a huge favor! Have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin.” —Caitlyn
Get the box of 36 round patches plus 4 large patches from Amazon for $8.50.
A quick-drying top coat so you can finally stop saying “oh sheet!” when you see the indents pressed into your fresh manicure when you wake up in the morning. This baby’ll have you polish fully set looooong before you go to bed (like, in a few minutes after applying, max!).
Promising review: “NEVER GETTING MY NAILS PROFESSIONALLY DONE AGAIN. I love having long nails. I do not like spending fifty bucks just to get them painted. I tried the gel polish, with gel top coat; I tried the gel system with the lamps; I tried every polish out there. My hands get washed hundreds of times daily. This stuff is unbelievable. It really works the way they say it does. I applied it about 1-2 minutes after finishing a second coat of color and within minutes it had bonded and set and my nails stay shiny and polished for over a week. That is not the full two weeks claimed, but I am unusually hard on my nails so over a week is AWESOME. I immediately ordered several more.” —Amazon Customer

A fume-free oven cleaner you can spray on, leave for a minute, and then wipe away for an oven so clean, you’ll think it was swapped out for a new model overnight. Time to reward yourself after all this cleaning with a cake.
Promising review: “Holy moly. This is some kind of miracle product. I sprayed it inside my oven and left it overnight, and wiped off an incredible sludge of brown goo in the morning, leaving behind a nearly pristine oven interior. There were a few areas that I had missed, so I sprayed and came back later that day. There are a few brown spots that don’t really want to come off, but I am not too fussed about them. 95% of the grease came right off. It worked on the sides of the oven and on the rack. What I really liked is that it didn’t smell too bad. I expected some terrible toxic chemical, and though it does have a (‘lemon’) odor, it’s not that strong. Definitely better than running the self-clean and filling my house with fumes for five hours. The can is a lot bigger than I expected, and I barely used any (I was cleaning the ‘small’ oven). It will last for a long time. Prepare to sacrifice a sponge to this project as well.” –SBP

A Revlon one-step drying brush with a unique oval-shaped barrel so you can get super close to your scalp for smooth hair and majorly boosted volume at the roots — in THREE MINUTES like the reviewer pictured here!
Promising review: “Gotta love Amazon Prime!! I just received this and OMG I’m in LOVE!! I’m known for air drying my hair because its super fine but VERY thick and takes forever to dry. Forget how long it takes to style it; I have wavy hair in the back and it falls straight in the front so I have to fight with a round brush, blow dryer and most days a straight iron too! Air drying in the winter doesn’t always work- especially on days like today when it feels like -15!! Well I’ve seen reviews for this bad boy and decided to give it a try. In 3 minutes and 36 seconds I went from towel dried hair to styled!! All I used was a little argan oil on my ends and bam! I am dried, styled and ready for my day!” —Holly D.

A L’Oreal blowout priming spray that’ll cut down your drying time while protecting your hair from heat damage (because your arms don’t need a whole workout when you’re trying to get ready), all while achieving salon-quality softness.
Promising review: “I use this every time I blow dry my hair. Even with my thick hair I can have it completely dry in less than five minutes. Leaves the hair feeling smooth and soft. I even find that I don’t need to restyle my hair the next day even after sleeping on it.” —blackrose

A microwave omelet maker to upgrade your morning routine. ~Omelet you finish~, but this might be the easiest way to make a healthy breakfast of all time. OF ALL TIME.
Mix up your eggs, add ingredients, cook in the microwave. That’s it!.
Promising review: “I love this thing! I’ve had it for about a month now and I use it almost everyday. I love western omelettes, but I hated cooking them. Now I just throw my cheese, onion, green peppers, and ham in here with the eggs and in a couple of minutes, I’m eating. I do have to cook it a little longer than it says, but I do throw everything in it but the kitchen sink. Wish I had found this a long time ago.” —RayRay

It’s really easy to use, takes no effort — you don’t have to hang onto the bottle so it doesn’t spin, like my old one — and it looks attractive on the counter.” —Mary

Extra large, biodegradable body wipes for when you need that shower-clean feeling, like STAT, but don’t have access to one.
In addition to camping and post-gym use, several reviewers recommend them for post-surgery convenience, too!
Promising review: “Great product! Used them on a four-day camping trip where there was no running water (showers or toilets). These wipes worked so well! They work amazing when you’re covered in days of SPF, bug spray, campfire ash, sweat, etc.! I used them on face and body (and rear-end… sorry not sorry, we all poop!) I felt refreshed after using them, especially when I saw how much dirt they got off my skin. The wipes still retain their moisture after days of opening/reopening. The fact that they are biodegradable is a huge plus! I would definitely recommend this product to anyone, and not just campers! Will definitely order again!” —Ryan

A vented microwave food steamer, because on weeknights, cooking is hard. And eating healthy-ish food is even harder. Let your microwave do the work tonight.
It’s freezer- and microwave-safe (duh), so you can prep a meal for the freezer and just pop it in to heat up! And it works with veggies, fish, and poultry, so you’re on your way to a complete meal.
Promising review: “This thing makes quick work out of steaming veggies! The best way to keep the nutrients and eat healthier. Instead of dirtying pans and having to carefully watch steaming on the stove, just slap a pound of broccoli in for about three minutes and BOOM! you’re done and ready to eat. Throw it in the dishwasher and it’s ready for round two! I can do a pound of carrots, a pound of broccoli, and a dozen stalks of asparagus in about 11 minutes! Try that on the stove!” —manchu

You’ll *both* be happier.
Promising review: “I cannot say enough good things about this product! I have two 50lb dogs and a backyard that gets muddy pretty quick. It was always a struggle for my wife and I to clean their paws when they came back into the house, but with the Portable Dog Paw Cleaner, we have been able to clean their paws quickly and efficiently! We used to have to try and get them to dip their paws in a bowl of water and they would flinch or move and water would go everywhere. Not to mention we had to use our hands to scrub the dirt off their paws. What used to take 20 minutes, now takes 5 minutes. No mess and much faster. Fantastic product!” —Frank

A Migrastil roll-on stick to help evaporate your migraine or tension headache within minutes. Just apply the blend of essential oils (including lavender, spearmint, and peppermint) onto your temples, forehead, and the back of your neck — and POOF! Relief is here.
BuzzFeed / Katy Herman
Promising review: “Years ago a massage therapist I went to used a cream at my temples that helped greatly with headaches & nausea. I have tried to find that scent for years. THIS IS IT!! I use it daily on my temples & the back of neck just below my hairline. It helps 100% with the nausea I suffer from meds I take. Many of my headaches I can prevent from going to a migraine by applying again at start of headache. I take so many meds because of autoimmune disease’s that I like not having to pop another pill for my headaches. I am the most skeptical person you will find when it comes to homeopathic or oils etc., but this works!!” —DVS

A Remington tapered curling wand that’ll heat up in 30 SECONDS and create gorgeous waves so you can head out the door in no time. ~Wave~ hello to all that sleeping-in time you now have.
Promising review: “I never ever ever ever ever do my hair. Literally. I decided to buy a curling wand after looking at all of the great reviews it had. I looked at CHI and other expensive brands too, but they had nowhere near the reviews this wand did. When I saw the amazing reviews that people had left I knew I should give it a shot. HOLY CRAP GUYS this wand is amazing! I would have paid $150 for this thing! I do my hair literally all the time now, and it takes me 15 minutes at the most, and is way prettier than straightening it. Plus, you can use a wand several different ways to give you a different look. So I can go from southern belle curls to sexy voluminous curls in no time. I’m seriously considering buying another just in case I love this one or it breaks. And about burning yourself, this is my first wand and I still haven’t burnt myself, and I don’t use the glove either, so don’t be nervous, just pay attention!” —Shelby B.

Pet potty, marker, weird odd stains that shouldn’t be there but your kids deny they did it… This is your product! I was desperate to get the stains out from the messy kids. I didn’t spray it, I poured this on the stain enough to get it super wet. Walked away for abt 3-5 mins to soak on the old stains and scrubbed it with a hard bristle brush. And boom no more stains!!!!!! Seriously. I’m buying in bulk. LOVE this stuff. Product arrived quickly and brand new.” —Sandra McDade

Promising review: “I have always used and loved Jergens because it dried faster than other popular brands of lotions. When another lotion brand came out with their in-shower, rinse off lotion, I tried it and liked it — but it left my shower a horrible mess. I had to scrub my shower all the time. So this is a dream. It’s the same great, fast drying lotion that I love, but it is convenient to do in the shower and it doesn’t make my tub a mess to clean. I love the green tea scent. When I use it before bed, my skin is noticeably softer the next morning. And it’s is 100% more convenient than applying traditional lotions OR scrubbing my tub every other day.” —Bernie Moore

A set of toaster-friendly bags perfect for whipping up an ooey gooey grilled cheese when you can’t really manage the whole stove thing. Plus they’re dishwasher safe, so you don’t need to do any washing up by hand!
Promising review: “I’m not going to lie — I’m a total sucker for gimmicky, single purpose kitchen appliances. That being said, these Toastabags are FANTASTIC. Out of all the products I just mentioned, these Toastabags have consistently gotten the most use. I love the ease of just taking two pieces of bread and some cheese and throwing them in the toaster. It’s a life saver if you just don’t have time to make food, the whole process takes maybe 2-3 minutes. My only tip is to make sure you thoroughly clean out the bags after every single use. 5/5 purchase — will happily repurchase when these have been used up. However, they are so durable (with proper care) that I can’t see that happening for a while, I foresee getting a lot more mileage out of these things. I’d probably pay $10 just for one of these; the fact that it came as a 3-pack makes this a steal.” —Hamish

A HyperChiller iced beverage maker that’ll cool hot drinks by up to 130° in 60 seconds with zero dilution. So you can brew hot coffee, and then sixty seconds later, have a perfect iced drink ready to go!
You can use it for anything from wine to tea to scotch, too!
Promising review: “I took a look at this product, did some research and was skeptical. How could a coffee (beverage) chiller be worth over $30 dollars? Was it possible that this product was so revolutionary when I’ve been making iced coffee with two ingredients for decades? The answer is very simple: this product delivers. Simple to use. Easy to clean. It allows the novice, home barista to make a quality, undiluted cup of iced coffee. Brew your coffee using your preferred method; pour the coffee in the previously frozen HyperChiller; wait a minute or two; add whatever accompaniments your heart desires; enjoy the best damned cup of iced coffee you will ever experience from the comfort of your home.” —Chuck Ghoulie

A ~Fasta Pasta~ cooker to make perfectly al dente pasta right in the microwave — no waiting for the pot to boil. Plus, the lid doubles as a strainer, so you really won’t dirty any extra dishes!
Promising review: “I bought this microwave pasta cooker at a time when I did not have a stove. Even though I have a stove now, I still use this cooker for dinner for myself sometimes because it works so well and quickly! The pasta comes out very soft and perfectly cooked when instructions are followed. When the pasta is done, the lid is used to drain the cooker of water and works very well. Pasta is the only thing I have cooked in this product, but there are a lot of other things you can cook in it. I highly recommend this to any college student or adult who needs a fast microwave pasta cooker!” —Kelsi Murphy
