Beyond plates and utensils, buying kitchen essentials can be intimidating — especially if you are new to cooking at home. On top of that, many items can get really expensive. Before splurging on that heavy duty cast iron pan or an over-the-top pressure cooker, think about what you actually use your kitchen for.

Personally, I’m a fan of hard-boiled eggs and ice cream. (Not to worry, I don’t mix the two together. I’m not that bad of a home cook.) When I moved into my new apartment this week, I Googled how I could start making my favorites from home.

Thankfully, I came across dozens of affordable kitchen appliances for all sorts of recipes — egg cooker and ice cream maker included. Scroll through and see if there’s anything that works for you. Everything’s under $25, so feel free to snag a few of these dinner-saving devices.
