Kitchenaid's Sifter + Scale Attachment weighs your flour as you scoop it in, and then, with the turn of a switch, sifts it neatly down a chute into the work bowl of your stand mixer (or a side bowl) while the mixer runs. It's great for anyone who loves the precision and fluffy results of weighing and sifting their flour, but not the extra steps or the countertop mess. Buy it: $130 at kitchenaid.com

LG's Instaview Door-in-Door Fridge is one of the smartest Wi-Fi-enabled fridges out there. In addition to being Alexa- and Google Home-compatible, it lets you see inside without opening the door. Knock twice on the tinted glass panel to illuminate the entire interior. Put frequently needed items in its outer door for quick access while keeping cold air where it belongs—in the fridge. Some models have two freezer drawers, too. Buy it: From $3,900 at homedepot.com

7. Smartly Stacking Skillets

For those of us (not naming names!) with a teetering tower of pots and pans, Anolon's SmartStack Cookware is a game changer. The pans hook together at the handles, so they sit level without pan surfaces touching, and the whole set fits in a single standard kitchen cabinet bay. Buy it: $400 for 10-piece nonstick set in onyx at dillards.com
