Every year at Allrecipes, editors and product testers vet dozens of kitchen accessories, tools, appliances, and gadgets, not to mention home goods and gifts, to curate products we think our readers will value. Which products really take off, however, can come as a surprise.

We know, for example, that our readers hold their cast iron skillets dear to their hearts, so it's reasonable that a Lodge cast iron griddle and a cast iron brush would rank among best sellers. As for Clorox Disinfecting Wipes or sticky fruit fly traps? More unexpected. But we're glad we could help our readers with these buys nonetheless.

These useful kitchen products topped our community's shopping lists.
