9 best kitchen gadgets under $20 that you’ll use every day

As much as I love my kitchen workhorses — the giant wooden cutting board, measuring cups, microplane and razor-sharp knives — there’s also a special place in my heart for the smaller extras that I don’t strictly need, but that make cooking (and eating!) smooth as butter.

They’re all products I actually own and use in real life and that are simple to incorporate into your cooking routine.
