For those on the go, the Cuisinart Evolution X is a hand blender with several different heads for immersion blending, whipping, and even frothing drinks. It is perfect for moving around the kitchen. Since you don’t need to be hooked up to a wall socket, you can mix dough or quiche anywhere: on the stove or even on the dining table.

Amazon’s smart soap dispenser is a great idea for anyone with kids or anyone who loves cleanliness. You can control how much soap it dispenses based on how far you place your hands under the spout, and it lights up for 20 seconds (the recommended wash time). You can also use it with your Alexa routines and make it play music.
