A slice of toast is always a great way to start the morning, but burnt fingers certainly aren’t. These non-stick toaster bags make cooking with a toaster easier than ever and even let you toast foods you weren’t able to put in the toaster before.

Don’t just stop at toast — these reusable toaster bags are particularly great for grilled cheese without risking cheese lining the insides of the toaster. Countless other foods can be used with these bags, including chicken nuggets, vegetables, pizza and french fries. These heat-resistant toaster bags are also efficient on the grill, in the oven and in the microwave for maximum versatility.

Stop shuffling around trying to find a lid that may not even be there next time your pot is boiling over and grab these spill stopper lid covers instead. The lid covers come in two sizes, 10.2 inches and 11 inches, to fit most pots. They efficiently stop water from splashing or leaking and pressurize the pot for a more efficient cook.

Steam escapes through the center of the lid cover rather than building up dangerously. For an additional feature, place foods like vegetables in the center of the cover for thorough steam heating. When you’re done with the cover, grip one of its two side handles and lift for a steam-free removal. The spill stopper lid covers can also be used in microwave ovens or in the fridge and are 6% off on Amazon right now.

When it comes to bacon, the more grease there is, the tastier it’ll be. Unfortunately, all that bacon grease has to go somewhere, and even the sturdiest paper towel isn’t always enough to hold it. Thankfully, the Bacon Sponge thoroughly catches bacon grease and even absorbs some of the bacon’s “artery-clogging” fats for the most delicious, mess-free bacon possible.

The Bacon Sponge is now 35% larger than previous versions and customers love it. One Amazon shopper said, “I hate that I have to use so many paper towels to soak up the grease. These sponges are excellent for absorbing grease and they are easy to clean too!”

Whether you need a little extra cabinet space or just want to make the cooking process a little cleaner, these Amazon finds are right for you. Stop letting your pot boil over or struggling with that jar if you don’t have to. Check out these kitchen essentials to save up to 46% on Amazon now.
