20 genius kitchen gadgets that aren't dumb and really work - all with 5 star Amazon ratings!

Sometimes when I'm in Target or HomeGoods and I'm browsing the kitchenware section, I love checking out all the gadgets and gizmos that are out now. I know, I'm a bit of a weirdo. Please tell me I'm not the only one! Certain gadgets are like... seriously... come on! For example, this banana slicer. I mean really - is it that totally inconvenient to just slice it with a knife? Alton Brown is big on kitchen "multitaskers" and I tend to agree with him. This one is completely ONLY useful for bananas, so with my limited space you wouldn't find it in my kitchen!

How about a citrus sprayer you plug right into the lemon to spritz on your food? Or a rolling garlic mincer that gets the job done super fast, and no bad odor left on your hands? Now those are gadgets I'd love to have in my kitchen! 

I scoured my favorite online store (Amazon, of course) and I found 20 of the best rated kitchen gadgets that I think are genius!

1. Spiral Vegetable Slicer
2. Citrus Sprayer
3. Strawberry Stem Remover
4. 3-in-1 Avocado Peeler, Pitter, & Slicer

5. Garlic Odor-Remover Bar
6. Rolling Garlic Mincer
7. Sauce Pot and Built-in Basting Brush
8. Jalapeno Pepper Corer - or mini peppers (my favorite), get them ready for stuffing and grilling without so much heat!

9. Magnetic Measuring Cups & Spoons - I have a set very similar to this and I LOVE them! They snap together with magnets so even if your kids are constantly in and out of the drawers, they stay put.
10. Flexible Grilling Skewer - you can coil it around to fit in bowls for marinating and then bend it around to fit the available space on your grill!
11. Stainless Steel Refillable K-Cup
12. Cake Batter Dispenser

13. Silicone Ice Pop Maker Set
14. Cupcake Corer
15. Magic Yolk Separator
16. Microwave Egg Boiler

17. Egg Slicer Wedger Piercer
18. Ice Cream Pop Molds
19. Breakfast Sandwich Maker
20. Ice Cream Sandwich Maker

Ok, I seriously can't wait to try some of these gadgets! How about you? What's your favorite kitchen gadget that you can't live without?
