As POPSUGAR editors, we independently select and write about stuff we love and think you'll like too. If you buy a product we have recommended, we may receive affiliate commission, which in turn supports our work.

One of the perks of being a POPSUGAR editor is that no matter what type of item you might be looking for, one of your coworkers knows *exactly* the right answer. Better yet, you can trust their advice! Our editors are a friendly yet discerning bunch — so while they love sharing product recommendations, they only talk about the items they really and truly love. As you can imagine, our Slack channels are flooded with "you've got to try this" threads.

So, knowing how many home chefs we have in our crew, we challenged them to name the one kitchen essential that's changed their cooking for the better. Not three items, not two — just that single incredible, can't-live-without, must-have kitchen product they swear by. Did some people try to sneak in more than one? Yes. (Did we make them follow the rules? Also yes.)

Ahead, our editors' picks for the kitchen essentials they think — wait, make that *know* — you'll love, too.
