Like most things in life, cooking is exponentially less complicated with the right tools in hand and the ability to follow directions. Just ask Clea, who made it her 2024 intention (not resolution — way too much pressure!) to start learning to cook again and actually stick with it. Read on for Clea's must-haves that will take the chaos out of cooking so it's actually enjoyable.

  •  5.3 Qt Stand Mixer

    What can't Drew Barrymore do? (Remember when we organized her test kitchen in season 2?!) I'm obsessed with the entire Beautiful by Drew line at Walmart, but especially this stand mixer. Since it's so beautiful (pun fully intended) it doubles as a display piece on my countertop.

  • 8-in-1 Kitchen Tool Set

    Is it a measuring cup? Is it a grater? Is it a can opener? It's all that and more! Not only does this tool offer me another opportunity to ROYGBIV, but I'm able to clear some drawer space and save time.

  • Cuisinart Air Fryer + Convection Toaster Oven

    If there were Academy Awards for appliances, this air fryer would win Best Supporting Actress. She'll make you look like a superstar, when really you are just setting a timer and letting the magic happen.

  • 20-Piece Mixing Bowl Set

    Why, yes, of course I went out of my way to find a set of mixing bowls that I could nest in rainbow order, that just so happen to come with cooking utensils to match. If you can dream it, you can do it, y'all.

  • XL Canisters

    Buying in bulk means less grocery shopping, which means I'm fully on board. I use the XL canisters from our Walmart collection to store everything from rice to pasta. The airtight seal keeps things fresh while the clear design makes it easy to know when I'm running low — it's a win-win.

    Tip: Write the expiration date on the canister using a washable chalk marker or label maker. And if you want to save the cooking instructions? Just tape them on the back! (Or just like, Google it.)

  • Caraway Food Storage Set

    If you couldn't tell by now, I'm a huge fan of Caraway. What I love most about this particular food storage set is that it comes with "dash containers" that are the perfect size for sauces or smaller servings.
