The Latest Must Have Kitchen Gadgets for Summer

These summer must haves are red hot.

Ahh, summer is upon us. And to me summer is all about backyard barbecues and fun. Spruce up your routine with these latest must have gadgets that will be a perfect addition to your favorite kitchen line-up of products. I think each and every one of these things is unique and can really serve a purpose as well as make your life easier. Check them out below. 

1. A 3-Tier Stacked Glass Drink Dispenser

Looking for a pretty way to serve drinks at your parties this summer? Try this glass stacked beverage server. Three different sections means you can serve three different drinks without taking up a ton of space. (The Kitchn)


2. Catch That Cap!

There are several ways to open a beer bottle but where do those bottle caps end up? Flung across the floor, someone’s forehead, trapped between the couch cushions? This clever device opens the bottles and catches the caps until you decide to release the prisoners by removing the flexible base to make room for more victims.

3. 3890 Digital Scale with Measuring CupThe most accurate measuring cup measures by weight, not volume, for precise results. (Taylor)


4. Corn Griller Basket

Designed to grip four ears of corn in its steel frame, this handy basket makes it easy to maneuver and flip one of summer’s favorite vegetables. Long handle keeps hands from the heat source.


5. Breaking Bad Cutting Board 

If you’re a fan of the show Breaking Bad, like I am, this amazing cutting board needs no description.

7. OXO®3 In 1 Avocado Tool Perfect slices of peeled avocado are just seconds away with this task-specific, three-part tool. Serrated plastic blade easily slices the skin, circular pitter scoops out the pit, and plastic blades create clean, uniform slices. (Crate & Barrel)


8. Silicone Jar Spatula Bright white silicone essential is durable, heat-resistant and dishwasher-safe. Skinny jar spatula is great for scraping tight spaces and safe for nonstick cookware. (Crate & Barrel)


9. OXO® Corn Stripper with Holder

No more flying kernels. OXO’s® smart stripper not only zips corn smoothly off the cob, it neatly collects the results. Simply push the stripper the length of the cob, rotating until all kernels have been removed. Soft, nonslip grip cushions hands during use; stainless steel blade will not rust or dull. Holder capacity is ½ cup, approximately one ear of corn.

    Ariel, you found some really great gadgets. I especially like the corn husker, the strawberry huller, the rack for holding ears of corn on the grill, the avocado tool, and the jar spatula. The question is, “Where do I put all this stuff?” I inherited my addition to gadgets from my dad. As always, the answer is, “get a bigger house.”
