Looking for some tools to shorten your time in the kitchen and make your food taste more delicious? Sometimes, the easiest way to do so is to just look at what everyone else is buying. That's why we pulled together a list of some of the best-selling kitchen accessories and appliances on Amazon. Though the rankings are always changing, these products have each reached the top spot this month in their respective categories.

1. Keurig K-Mini Coffee Maker; $100

The Keurig is perfect when you just want to brew up one cup of coffee. Keurig/Amazon

And while it’s mostly built to fill shorter cups, it can accommodate travel mugs up to 7 inches tall if you remove the attached drip tray. This Keurig coffee maker is compatible with most single-serve, disposable coffee capsules—but if you want to reduce waste, you can also prepare your own coffee grounds in this universal K-cup.

3. Amazon Basics Portable Hot Water Kettle; $22

Forget about the microwave and get your water piping-hot in an electric kettle, instead. AmazonBasics

7. Belwares French Press; $27
