A Good Coffee Grinder
Most of us love a good, fresh cup of coffee in the morning, and the secret to the best brew is using freshly ground coffee beans. There are several great coffee grinders on the market, available in various settings between coarse or fine grounds.
Every kitchen should have a cheese grater with options that include different grating sides (medium or coarse). There are also graters available that are foldable, so they take up less space.
Silicone Oven Mitts
These are one of the handiest kitchen accessories you can buy. Silicone oven mitts provide a nice solid grip and don't let in any heat when you are pulling your meals out of the oven. Bottom line, silicone mitts offer an impressive combination of comfort, heat protection, and maneuverability.

On the other hand, bristled brushes easily and safely scrub away food without transforming into a stinky, bedraggled, brown mess.
