Sometimes it takes the spring cleaning bug to make you realize just how many parts of your home have gone neglected. For me, this has included polishing my wood cabinets and cleaning my exterior windows on a busy Brooklyn street, just to name a couple. One area that has gone neglected for what I assume has been years (I moved into an apartment my friends have lived in since 2017!) is my fridge. Because it’s mostly covered in magnets and save-the-dates, it sounded daunting to take them all down and wipe the highly smudged stainless steel exterior. But, when I came across this plant-based cleaner, I was so excited to try it that I didn’t mind the hassle. And it sure has paid off!

Earlier this year, I tested out the wood cleaner and polish from plant-based cleaning brand, Therapy Clean. I was shocked by how shiny it made my cabinets with hardly any elbow grease! Encouraged by these results, I tried the Therapy Clean Stainless Steel Cleaner on the years of fingerprints smudged on my fridge. What I wound up with was a gorgeous streak- and smudge-free door that I can’t help but admire.

As an added plus, you can try both items (as well as the all-purpose sprays we happen to love, too!) for yourself now at a hefty discount. Therapy Clean is hosting a sitewide 4th of July BOGO sale — use the code BOGOTHERAPY at checkout to take 50 percent off the second item! The sale doesn’t apply to any subscriptions, so just keep that in mind when you’re filling up your cart.

As with the wood polish, there are a few obvious factors I love about this stainless steel cleaner. The first is the amazing smell. One of the biggest draws of this cleaning line is that they use essential oils in each of their products, so you’re left with a fresh scent in addition to a clean home. This creamy formula is made with coconut oil and lavender oil, so your kitchen will already feel cleaner after spraying because it just smells so nice. 

The second aspect I can’t get enough of is the fact that it truly is streak-free. At first, I wasn’t sure if this would hold true because of the thicker formula and creamy color. However, after just one swipe, it left behind zero residue or streaks. And although I had tons of smudges and stains on my fridge door, it required little effort to wipe them away. Just a few wipes and they were gone, a shining surface left behind in their wake. To make your cleaning experience even better, the stainless steel kit includes a large microfiber cloth for wiping and buffing that you can use over and over again.

It’s also designed to leave a protective barrier behind to resist fingerprints, dust, dirt, oil, and smudges. So I’m excited to keep an eye on my fridge and see how long it lasts!

After cleaning my fridge, I moved on to my sink. I first gave it a good scrub by using Bon Ami (which happens to be a great way to clean stainless steel!). Then, I sprayed this cleaner all over the sink and faucet and wiped everything down. The sink looked great, but I was particularly impressed with the faucet. It immediately sparkled!

And don’t just take our word for it — more than 11,000 customers gave this cleaner a 5-star rating on Amazon, with tons of stunning pictures to support just how shiny you can get your stainless steel appliances. When you’re done, you can sit back and admire the sparkle just like I keep doing every time I step into the kitchen!

The $15 Kitchen Shears That Keep Selling Out Are Back in Stock — But You’ll Need to Act Fast

The $15 Kitchen Shears That Keep Selling Out Are Back in Stock — But You’ll Need to Act Fast

We independently select these products—if you buy from one of our links, we may earn a commission. All prices were accurate at the time of publishing.

One brand that several AT editors use over and over again at home is Misen. Senior editor Danielle swears by the Misen paring knife in her daily cooking, while I actually gifted my entire family the Misen chef’s knife last year after loving it myself. And while we know Misen makes amazing cookware, knives, and more, there’s one under-the-radar product that is so impressive, it’s always selling out. Today’s your lucky day, though, because it’s finally back in stock!

While a pair of kitchen shears is an essential in any kitchen, the Misen Kitchen Shears are an exceptional choice for their sharpness, comfort, and affordable $15 price point. Past restocks have seen waitlists of over 2,000 people eager to get their hands on this handy kitchen tool. Because we love Misen’s knife collection so much, it’s no surprise that these kitchen scissors are popular for their high-performing cutting. Although they’re in stock now, you’ll want to act fast because these shears have a history of selling out!

Whether you need to upgrade your dull kitchen shears or you need your first pair, you can’t go wrong with this fan-favorite pick from Misen. From deboning chicken thighs and snipping dried fruit to slicing a pizza or cutting open hard plastic packaging, these scissors are up for the job. The stainless steel blades are micro-serrated to make smooth, straight cuts and prevent the blade from slipping, while the large, ambidextrous handle loops are comfortable and keep you in control. 

You’ll use these shears constantly, as the cookware brand says that they’re sharp enough to deftly snip twine and mince herbs without bruising them, yet strong enough for tougher tasks like cutting chicken bones and crab shells. When it’s time to clean, you can easily detach the two pieces to hand wash or toss in the dishwasher.

With rave reviews from happy customers, you can rely on these shears to be your new favorite tool. One reviewer said they used them to spatchcock a turkey and was impressed by how sharp they remained after, while another praised them for how easy it was to cut raw meat, pizza, and even banana peels. Several customers mentioned using these scissors as a go-to kitchen gift for friends and family, too.

Whether buying for yourself or a thoughtful Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gift, these Misen shears are a reliable buy for a great price. You better add them to your cart right now before they disappear again.

Whether you’re a messy cook or not, you need to have durable, absorbent kitchen towels on hand — and we just happen to have found the best kitchen towels out there. The Zeppoli Classic Kitchen Towels are 100 percent cotton, super absorbent, and have a timeless look that makes them obvious editor favorites. In fact, our friends at Kitchn have ranked them as the best kitchen side towels on their Kitchn Essentials: Tools Edition list for three years running! They’re the perfect towels for keeping in your back pocket while you cook because they can withstand a lot of wear and tear — and they’re on sale right now. You can get a pack of 15 towels for just $22! If your dishtowels are in need of a serious upgrade, let these be your new solution for soaking up spills, wiping your hands, drying dishes, cleaning counters, and so much more.

Several AT staffers have put these towels to the test, praising their workhorse capability, long-lasting design, amazing absorbency, and more. Because they’re made from 100 percent cotton, they’re able to soak up a large amount of liquid, making them perfect for anyone who wants to cut down on paper towel use. They’re also lightweight and dry quickly, so you won’t be left with a soggy towel on your counter. Unlike smaller dish towels and hand towels, the Zeppoli towels are built to work and can handle even large messes.

Because they’re heavy duty, these towels are great for other kitchen tasks, too, like quickly picking up a hot pan or lid. No more burning your hand through thin fabric! And when it comes time for cleanup, just toss them in the washing machine to use over and over again. We found that these towels still hold up after tons of use and washing. Cleaning tip: One of our contributors washes them on hot with detergent and bleach to get out any stubborn stains.

And don’t just take our word for it — the Zeppoli towels have nearly 16,000 five-star ratings on Amazon. Reviewers love the quality of fabric and how well the towels hold up over time. One person even mentioned how they would buy these babies again but realized (unfortunately?) that they won’t need to any time soon.

With 15 kitchen towels for under $25, we’re confident that this pack will satisfy any cleaning or drying needs while you cook. Plus, there’s the added bonus of feeling like a professional chef if you keep one over your shoulder or in your back pocket — and really, what’s better than that?

The Internet-Famous Always Pan Now Comes in a Shocking New Color That’s Sure to Sell Out

The Internet-Famous Always Pan Now Comes in a Shocking New Color That’s Sure to Sell Out

If you’re a frequent Kitchn reader, you’re probably familiar with Our Place, the DTC cookware brand that shook the internet a few years back when they released the editor-favorite Always Pan. The all-in-one nonstick skillet takes on the role of eight kitchen tools (and counting, as they continually release gadget-y add-ons like the new fry deck). But we aren’t just obsessed with the Always Pan for its versatility — we adore the sleek design and pop of color it adds to the kitchen. The Our Place team knows how to make great-looking cookware, and every time they release a new seasonal hue, it sells out fast.

And you heard it here first: Starting today, you can score the Always Pan in a limited-edition color that’s so chic it’ll have you running to the grocery store to cook up something just as bright and cheery. Introducing Acid, a bold, unapologetic, and fashion-forward addition to the Our Place lineup.

The Always Pan features 3″ deep, sloped walls that make it an ideal tool for steaming, frying, simmering, sautéing, and all nonstick cooking. It also functions as a spoon rest, with a wooden spatula that nestles perfectly into the ergonomic handle. If you have a small kitchen, take note — it’s the only piece of cookware you need for nearly any stovetop task.

Beyond the incredible functionality, we think every kitchen benefits from a beautifully dramatic piece of cookware to bring the room together. After all, how do you think Le Creuset came to be so popular yet forever timeless? It’s all about the colors, and Our Place is coming in hot with this new funky green. Acid is just the fun pop of color you didn’t know you needed.

Le Creuset Just Launched Stoneware Casserole Dishes to Make Baking a Million Times Easier

Le Creuset Just Launched Stoneware Casserole Dishes to Make Baking a Million Times Easier

Casserole dishes often go under-appreciated, when in fact they actually do so much more than cook easy cheesy dinners and sides. They’re the ultimate cookware for making one-pot dinners, easily transporting food, and baking delicious desserts. Our friends at Kitchn have a handful of editor-favorite casserole dishes, but there’s one that consistently comes out on top: the Le Creuset Casserole Dish. It was picked as number one in their annual Kitchn Essentials: Tools Edition this year for its gorgeous look, even heating, and easy-to-clean smooth surface. 

The most notable feature of these new Le Creuset baking dishes is the handles. Unlike the brand’s usual tab-style handles, these dishes have looped handles that make gripping the dish with oven mitts much easier. Additionally, the covered casserole dishes now feature a stainless steel knob that will provide a more secure grip when you have bulky oven mitts on. 

Of course, these pieces include the same high-performance qualities that Le Creuset is known for. When put to the test, the rectangular casserole dish works beautifully, resulting in perfectly browned mac and cheese and restaurant-quality meatballs. It also cleans up super easily thanks to its smooth interior, and it can keep food piping hot for a whopping three hours with the lid on.

If you’re already dreaming of all the potluck sides, no-fuss dinners, and easy cobblers you can make with these baking dishes, then now is the best time to scoop one up. The Williams Sonoma line is available in three chic colorways: French Grey, Matte White, and Cerise, all of which are sure to be a hit at your next picnic or dinner party.
