I want it, I got it. You like my gadgets? Gee, thanks, just bought it!
Seriously though, isn’t that how we all feel about products we see on TikTok? The short videos showing off Amazon finds of products that make life just a little bit easier always catch my eye. I’m a sucker for them and end up every time with adding some of those products to my cart.
Today I’m sharing with you 10 trendy gadgets that I found on TikTok that are actually useful!
Take a seat and grab a drink, these products are going to blow your mind!
Flat Water Bottle
If you’re like me you have quite the collection of tumblers or portable water bottles stored away in your kitchen. I change mine out frequently so that I’m not drinking out of the same cup for too long. The straws also need to be cleaned often so that they’re not collecting bacteria.
But even though I always have a tumbler at my side at home, I seem to frequently forget it once I’m walking out the door. And every time I do remember to grab it, it can be an inconvenience to lug around everywhere.
However, if I had a flat water bottle to perfectly slip into my purse, my problem would be solved! I’d have hydration at hand but not always literally in my hand.
The flat design is really nice. It helps so that it’s not rolling around in your purse or bag and it doesn’t take up too much space. It can also fit into some coat pockets! The lid is designed for no leaks, the plastic case makes it easy to grip and it also comes with a wrist strap for if you’re carrying it around.
3-in-1 Avocado Slicer
I can be quite picky when it comes to buying kitchen products. If I let myself buy them left and right because of their selling points I’d have one over crowded kitchen. However, this one caught my eye.
I always get so nervous about pitting an avocado and I’m 99.9% sure I’ll cut my finger off one day. I know, it sounds crazy. Especially coming from someone who loves to cook and spends so much time in the kitchen around knives and other sharp objects.
But this little tool can be easily tucked away and if you’re an avocado lover it could really come in handy! I mean, it literally does it all and does more than most other avocado slicers.
Imagine with me for a second that this gadget looks like a mitten. See the thumb? That’s the slicer! It’s made of PP20 plastic which is polymer nerd talk for really sharp plastic that won’t slice your fingers open like a carbon steel knife could.
The center that resembles a beer can opener is made of stainless steel and easily removes the pit.
The scoop creates perfectly even slices while literally scooping it out of the skin!
Speaking of fresh produce, these food huggers blew my mind. There are often times that I only use half a lemon, half an onion or half an avocado and I guiltily admit that I wrap it aluminum foil and pop in the fridge until I need the other half.
I’d heard of food huggers before, but TikTok users reminded me of how great they can be. First off, they’re FDA approved and BPA free. This is super important when it comes to your food. They’re also woman owned which is an awesome bonus.
I decided to look up the affects of wrapping your food in aluminum foil and now I’m cringing.
Overtime, aluminum foil can actually leak into your foods. That’s disgusting and toxic. Aluminum foil also isn’t seal proof, leaving room for air to make contact with your left over foods and that exposes you to the risk of foodborne bacteria.
Food huggers are designed to literally hug onto your foods whether it be vegetables, fruits or cheese! They come in all shapes and sizes to fit produce of all shapes and sizes.
They’re eco-friendly and help you keep your produce longer so that there’s no waste involved. You can also use it on open cans!
Reusable Storage Bags
These reusable bags are BPA free, easy to clean, leak proof and water proof. They also come in three different sizes which makes them great for food prep or left overs.
If you’re food prepping and need to stick some in the freezer they are freezer safe! Reusable bags are also a great way to save money. If you go through Ziplocs frequently, this could be something to consider!
If you’re using a $5 box of sandwich bags daily you can save the planet and use a reusable bag that will last you much longer than your box of Ziplocs will last.
However, they are not dishwasher or microwave safe. So when it comes to cleaning it at the end of the day, just wash in warm water and turn it inside out to dry!
OXO Citrus Juicer
If you’re a cuticle biter, you know how painful it can be to come into contact with citrus fruits. I’m better now than I used to be at night biting my cuticles, but I also have pretty dry hands/ So having cracked or peeling cuticles in inevitable sometimes.
This citrus juicer is a game changer and keeps your finger wounds from burning. It’s also super convenient for getting perfect measurements of lemon or lime juice for you recipes!
The reamer is designed for getting as much juice out of your small citrus’ and fits nicely into the beaker so that you can juice with ease.
The beaker itself has an easy pour spout so you can add your citrus juice straight to your pot, pan or baking dish drip free!
When I need to flip something in my skillet I usually either reach for my spatula or my tongs. My spatula if I need to flip something wide and my tongs if I need a better grip but neither of them do the most graceful job of flipping. No matter what I always end up with spillage.
That is, until I found these spatula tongs. Need to flip a grilled cheese? Easy peasy! Have a hard time flipping skillet burgers? No worries! These spatula tongs come in a two pack to fix your flipping problems.
With stainless steel hands and silicone spatula heads they are safe to use on any pan material. They are heat resistant up to 450°F and dishwasher safe.
You could even use these on a low heated smoker outside when grilling!
Safe Slice Mandolin
Remember back to the avocado slicer and how I get nervous I’ll cut my finger off? Same thing happens when it comes to using a traditional mandolin. I’m convinced that one day I’ll slice off the tip of my finger or a knuckle from one wrong move.
But TikTok shone the light on my dark gloomy clouds by introducing me to this safe slice mandolin! You literally just pop your veggies into the shoot and use the spring handle to chop! Gravity does most of the work and it’s amazing.
Your fingers literally never come into contact with the blade!
Thin slices, matchstick and julienne slices can be a pain in the butt by hand some times but this mandolin can literally do it for you. It has 30 different preset cuts which is insane and also means there’s no loose blades.
It comes with a food catcher and brush to make clean up easier but you can put the separate parts on the top shelf in the dishwasher. The mandolin also compacts for storage so that it doesn’t take up much space.
Silicone Gap Cover
So this definitely isn’t the most unique looking gadget or eye catching gadget, but it is pretty freaking practical. I always hate when food falls in the cracks between my stove and counter just knowing that it’s falling into an abyss that I may or may not ever clean.
Which now I feel guilty about.
I probably should pull my stove out more often and get all the junk that falls between there and I just might now that I know these exist. I would just have to clean it out once and then install these bad boys and never have to do it again!
These gap covers were designed to fit into the gap between most stove and counter tops to prevent food falling into the abyss. It comes in black or clear and three different sizes so just be sure to measure your gap before you order them! They also easily cut if your measurements are just a little shorter than those that are given.
They are narrow as to not take too much space onto the counter and are dishwasher safe.
PopBabies Portable Blender
The biggest gadget I’ve seen taking over TikTok is this portable personal blender. It’s a USB rechargeable blender that you can literally take anywhere.
If you usually eat breakfast on the go or need a mid-day work snack this blender is ideal and if you forget the charge it the night before you can bring the charger with you and recharge it right at your work station.
It also saves you space and time by being an all in one blender and cup and is no waste. I mean, you could carry around a magic bullet with you everywhere, but then the cord gets in the way. Since the Popbabies is chargeable you could literally take it on a hike with you!
It also comes with a free funnel so you don’t spill any of your liquids or powders while packing it and it comes with a free ice cube tray for perfectly cute and small ice cubes to throw in to thicken your smoothie!
