Millennials apparently can’t afford houses because of avocado toast – which means the responsible thing to do is to preserve your avocados! This little device helps a sliced avocado last longer and not get icky and brown.

A 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer

An average of 24 people get sent to the ER EVERY DAY from avocado related injuries.  This device will make your avocado toast experience safer and easier.

Yes, I’m a Millennial.  Yes, I love avocados.  But brown guacamole is gross.  This bowl creates an air-tight seal so your guac stays f resh for longer.

An Airfryer

Chicken tenders, tots, and even veggies will get crispy and delicious in this guy.  Keep your fan on, though – it may set off your smoke detector.

Poached eggs are delicious but intimidating.  These egg poachers give me pretty poached eggs in just minutes – with almost no effort.

Make a super delicious & filling meal right in the microwave with this omelette maker.  Just whip up some eggs, add some fillings, and pop it in the microwave.  Breakfast has never been easier!
