With warm weather heading our, it’s time to start thinking about iced tea, iced coffee, and lemonade. After all, there’s nothing better than an ice-cold beverage on a hot day. Unfortunately, adding ice can dilute your drink, making it watery instead of tasty. This instant chiller cools everything from juice to spirits to coffee in seconds. Just pop the HyperChiller in the freezer, pour in your liquid of choice, and wait about one minute to have your drink cooled down by as much as 130 degrees. When your drink is done the HyperChiller can go straight to the dishwasher and then back in the freezer for your next round.

These heat-resistant universal silicone lids have saved me from pulling out the Tupperware for leftovers since I can create an airtight, watertight, and spill-proof seal over any plate, bowl, cup, or can. The five sizes fit nearly anything you have cooking up in the kitchen, and they moonlight as a microwave splatter cover. They can even be used to help prevent boilovers on the stovetop. Plus, the BPA-free silicone is food grade and safe for your entire family.

Come 3 pm I’m ready to raid the pantry for something crunchy — and popcorn is one of my favorite snacks. Microwave popcorn contains chemicals and traditional kernels take time, work and clean up. So, what to do? Well, 21,000 reviewers agree: the Hotpop silicone popper is the key to a fuss-free snack. Just pour into your kernels, add oil and salt, and pop it into the microwave for three minutes. It can hold up to 15 cups of popcorn, plus it’s collapsible for easy storage. It’s even dishwasher safe!

If you struggle to keep your bathroom clean and mold-free, then the Signature Living bamboo bath mat needs to take up residence by your tub. It’s non-slip and water-resistant — plus it’s gorgeous.
