These gorgeous rainbow titanium knives gained a cult following after Selena Gomez used a similar set to chop, dice and slice with celebs on her HBO Max series Selena + Chef. More than 11,000 rave reviewers Amazon shoppers are chopping right along with her.

"The knives are incredibly sharp and work extremely well. I’ve used them for a while now," wrote one impressed cook. "Even my mother and sister loved to use them when they’ve come by and cook. Extremely impressive. So functional wonderful. These also have the added bonus that they’re are visually appealing. They’re beautiful and caught my eye while watching Selena + Chef on HBO Max. I needed new knives and I’m so happy I ordered this set. I probably will order a set for my mom!"

$15 at Amazon

We all seem to be a bit more obsessed with hydration these days. It seems like no one leaves home without a beverage in hand. More than 8,000 Amazon shoppers have made this tumbler their go-to vessel.

"I received one of these cups for a gift," shared a hydrated five-star fan. "I loved it and my husband loved it so much that he stole it and started using it every day. Which was perfect because then I got to pick one out my own color choice. Ice stays in it almost all day if left. Holds great amount of water. It is my go to cup I always have it by my side for ice water. I like the option of either the straw center or flip the top and you can sip."

Made with polyester, this satin pillow case promises to protect your hair from breakage while you're sleeping.
$10 at Amazon

Satin pillowcases are a beauty secret celebs like Kristen Bell and Victoria Beckham swear by to prevent damage to their hair that rough cotton can cause. Plus, they're beautiful and provide a luxurious night's sleep. More than 187,000 rave reviewers are already getting their beauty sleep on these babies.

"I started using satin pillowcases after researching the benefits for skin and hair," shared one five-star fan. "I’ve converted my husband as well. Your hair doesn’t rip when you twist and turn at night and it’s extremely soft on your skin, so as not to irate it. I will never go back to using cotton pillowcases. I even pack these when I travel and put them over my hotel pillowcases."

This nylon fanny pack has dimensions of 14.3"x 5.9" x 3.5" and four zipper pockets so you can carry all your essentials hands-free.
$15 at Amazon

This fanny pack has won over more than 26,000 five-star fans — and what’s not to love about a bag with four zippered pockets? With dimensions of 14.3 x 5.9 x 3.5 inches and a belt length of 20 to 50 inches, it can hold more than you’d expect and works for a variety of body types. What’s even more unexpected is that shoppers are going absolutely wild about it, regardless of how they feel about fashion.

“I was so resistant to get a fanny pack because I associate them with the 80’s and the ‘cool kids’ making fun of people wearing fanny packs,” admitted a five-star fan. “I bought it for a trip to Universal saying I will probably not even wear it cause I don’t wanna look lame… BUT, dang…this little thing is crazy cool! Dare I say…sexy!?!? I feel like the king of the world in this thing, it’s got thick straps so it’s not uncomfortable at all. It’s not bulky, it's actually sleek and form-flattering. It hugs my hips in just the right spots so I could hide it under a hoodie if I wanted to.”

Just add water (distilled or purified, please), and in two minutes this 240ml-capacity steamer will be raring to go, smoothing your garments to perfection.
$31 at Amazon

Who knew Amazon shoppers were obsessed with a perfectly pressed wardrobe? More than 53,000 five-star opt to steam the wrinkles out of their clothes with this gadget rather than pick up an iron.

"This is a great little steamer!! I hate to iron and don’t need my clothes absolutely perfect, just nice and presentable, and this does the trick! Very easy to use, quick to heat up and does a great job getting wrinkles out!! I definitely recommend!" wrote a satisfied customer.

On an airplane, elevator or at the beach, this go-anywhere rechargeable mini fan stirs up airflow when you need it.
$18 at Amazon

It's been an uncomfortably hot summer, and it looks likethe sweltering temps are here to stay beyond Labor Day. While there might not be air conditioning everywhere you go, you can at least control the weather in your personal space with this über-popular handheld fan. It's wireless (and rechargeable), so you can take it anywhere — on the plane, to the pool, on a picnic — without having to plug it in.

More than 21,000 Amazon shoppers rave about this fan's cooling capabilities. "I bought this going into my wedding week — worried about being too warm and beginning to sweat too much," wrote a five-star fan. "Traveling in the airport for our honeymoon, my husband and I were both thankful over several different occasions to have this little fan!...

These colorful gloves are lightweight and breathable, and the flexible foam latex coating keeps your hands cool and dry.
$14 at Amazon

Green-thumbed Amazon shoppers are raving about these colorful gloves. They're durable and the soft knit material makes them comfortable, but there's so much more to love about them.

"These gloves are really terrific," shared one of over 11,000 five-star reviewers. "I used to use rubber gloves (like the ones I use to wash dishes) because the fabric gardening gloves always ripped and even if they didn’t rip they got my nails dirty. Obviously the rubber gloves were not a good choice, my hands would sweat to the point where it seemed someone poured water into the gloves. Anyway, in a fit of desperation I came across these gloves and decided to try them. My hands don’t sweat, they are comfortable, have grip to them, and basically are really good! Plus you can’t beat the price!"

Clean electronics and more with this handy, dust-grabbing goop.
$7 at Amazon

Yellow putty might seem like a strange way to clean tough-to-reach dirt and grime, but once you try ColorCoral Universal Dust Cleaner for yourself, you'll become a believer. The product is made with a biodegradable gel that's sticky enough to pick up dirt in small spaces. All you have to do is roll the gel over the area you want to clean, give it a second to pick up the muck, then peel it off the surface and watch as the hard-to-reach dirt comes free. Gross, but also amazing.

"I purchased this product to clean those little spaces in my car filled with dog hair and random crumbs from my husband, and it works amazing," one fan says. "It picked up everything and didn’t leave a residue. The lemon scent was faint and didn’t overpower the vehicle while I was cleaning it. This definitely got in all the little nooks and crannies."

Not thrilled with your contractor's caulking lines in the bathroom? Want to remove dried-up bits of glue and sealant in various nooks and crannies around your home? This tool is absolutely essential. The 3-in-1 widget can scrape off grout and old caulk, and make those tiles in your bathroom or kitchen look like you just had them re-done. It even comes with five silicone pad replacements, a silicone trowel and stainless steel scraper.

"I have done bathroom caulking before with a flat head screwdriver and cleaning supplies and I remember it took forever and told myself I’d never do again," shared one skeptic. "But, our new house needed the caulking done so I bought this tool and OMG! It was amazing and only had to use this one tool. Made the project much faster and way easier. I would recommend over and over again."

They come in a variety of sizes and dim LED lights on electronics so you no longer have to deal with the brightness — you just stick on any of the tiny lights coming from computers, modems and plugs.

"I have a media PC in my living room under my TV and directly across from the main couch. The LED is extremely bright and obnoxious, especially in low-light situations...[These stickers] dimmed the LED a perfect amount. I can definitely still see that the PC is on, but without the annoying blue beacon that can be seen from space," this reviewer shares.

$10 at Amazon

Whether you're a home cook or a pro chef, a food scale can be the difference between an okay dish and a Michelin-star-worthy plate.

Be sure to apply the on-page coupon for an extra discount.

"I bought this kitchen scale for my mom, and she loves it," shared one thrilled shopper. "It's very thin and takes up almost no room at all in the cabinet, and the digital display is nice and clean. It appears to have an auto on and off feature, and it comes with a spare battery! For the money, this is a terrific little tool for cooking, weighing for mail postage, or even hobbies."

Save your clothes, save energy and save money. These wool dryer balls allow for shorter dryer time and they soften clothes in the dryer without chemicals.
$20 at Amazon

These genius doodads — which you toss in the dryer with wet clothes — soften your laundry naturally and shorten drying time. Shorter drying time is not only easier on fabrics but it saves energy, which means lower monthly bills...and less of your precious time spent time doing laundry! All-natural, and for a great price.

"I live in Los Angeles, so my apartment only offers coin laundry, so every quarter counts," a shopper revealed. "These balls have saved me a lot of dollars thus far! They allow my clothes to dry way faster than previously with dryer sheets, which is awesome because laundry prices keep going up in my building!"

Designed to kill germs while cradling your toothbrush.
$12 at Amazon

Your teeth are only as clean as your toothbrush. This portable sanitizer uses UV to zap germs because, well, who wants to use a dirty brush to clean their teeth? Uses two AA batteries, not included.

"Five stars isn't enough," raved a fan. "The UV light cleans it for five minutes and automatically shuts off. It keeps it safe from stuff splashing on your toothbrush if it's out in the open (such as flushing with the toilet lid up and microbial stuff getting on it. EW,) and really just keeps it safe from anything else touching it."

"Love these!! I have bought several sets, and including as gifts," wrote one of the 60,000-plus fans. "They are totally nonstick. I make breakfast muffins (like crustless quiches). With egg, a nonstick muffing pan still sticks and requires way too much work."
