As the weather begins to grow colder, I start spending more and more time in my apartment, escaping the cold by cuddling into blankets and pillows in my cozy studio. I also start spending more time in the kitchen, propelled into nesting and cooking mode not only by all this time spent indoors, but also by the heat that cooking and baking generate.

My mom has this air fryer, so I can attest that it works absolute magic. Not only does its fat reducer save us a ton of cutting, skimming, and over-chewing, but it also makes cooking savory lunches and dinners significantly easier.
Love cold brew but hate spending money? Try this game-changing cold brew maker, which doubles as a pitcher. Reviewers say that it's super easy to use, easy to clean, and highly customizable.
One review calls this Le Creuset cast iron pot "unexpectedly stunning." Indeed, I love the emerald green color. Plus, it's easy to clean, effective, and, according to reviews, pretty long-lasting.
This is one of my favorite items in my apartment. I've saved tons of money by using this espresso machine from De-Longhi, which enables me to make high-quality beverages like cappuccinos, lattes, and flat whites without leaving my kitchen.
I don't know about you, but I always forget to use non-stick spray when I'm baking, which makes opting for nonstick pans essential. These in particular are highly rated on Amazon, with multiple verified buyers saying that they're easy to use, work well, and that they're easy to clean.
I have a Ninja countertop oven, and it's a huge game-changer. I, along with scores of reviewers, highly recommend this option, which works well for everything from toasts to roasts. But buyer beware: The outside gets hot!
Customers swear by this cult-favorite blender, saying that it's ideal not only for smoothies, but for soups, dips, and more. Don't believe them? Check out our Social Media Editor Lucia Tonelli's glowing review.
Into nut milks but not into generating waste? Check out this machine from NUTR, which enables you to easily make milk alternatives. Reviewers say it's even great for single servings.
Drinking water is one of the best things you can do for your health, and when you do, you should make sure it's of high-quality. People adore this water filtration system, saying that it holds up when they test their water afterwards and that it makes their water taste great.
This is the second-bestselling food processor on Amazon, and when you look at the reviews, it's easy to see why: Its minimalist design makes it easy to clean, and its effective blades make it ideal for everything from smoothies to chopped veggies.
Love the convenience of k-cups but hate the waste? Try this high-end coffee maker, which I personally adore not only for its sustainability but also for how easy it use to use. It eschews all the complicated buttons of traditional espresso machines, opting instead for a user-friendly app through which you can choose your espresso, drip, or cold brew drink.
Another gem from Ninja, this ice cream maker makes it easier than ever to treat yourself. Reviewers say that it's incredibly easy to use (in my experience, this is rare for an ice cream maker!) and that it's extremely powerful, capable of cutting through even the most challenging chunks of ice.
One of my favorite aspects of this juicer is its sweet mint colorway, but it also works like a charm. HUROM's juicers are designed to be easy to clean, and this model creates a variety of juices and (according to reviews) is surprisingly quiet.
If you love the richness that Dutch ovens lend to recipes, then you'll adore this electric take on the cooking classic, which works much like the Dutch oven version of a slowcooker. Reviewers (including more than one single parent) say that the piece is a huge time-saver and allows them to run around, performing other tasks around the house while dinner cooks itself.
I used to have this cookware set, and it's fabulous: Truly nonstick, super easy to clean, and very durable. Reviewers agree with me, calling the set exceptional, impressive, and essential.
