Raise your hand if you're cooking skills are more Kitchen Nightmare than Top Chef? A few of you — great, I'm not alone.

 It doesn't matter if I have the best blender or the best non-stick cooking pan or how many kitchen gadgets I have stocked in my kitchen. When it comes to serving up meals (no matter how simple they may be), my level of expertise is underwhelming. 

Nevertheless, I still try — and that's how I found myself once more in my kitchen, testing out a handful of brand-new kitchen gadgets from Amazon Launchpad. Only this time, I knew better, and instead of looking for the latest and greatest items on the market, I gravitated towards ones that were top-rated and highly favored. 

Instead, these kitchen gadgets doubled as life hacks, which was something I desperately needed. These items solved a slew of current kitchen-related problems I was facing — and the verdict? I was surprisingly pleased. 

One kitchen gadget ended my non-zip baggie struggles, whereas another solved how to stop overspending at Starbucks. 

The magic of these items was honestly endless — so much so: that if you are looking to master the art of the kitchen, these are the five kitchen gadgets I'd recommend from Amazon Launchpad to do so. 

5 kitchen gadgets worth the investment

1. A blade-free electric can opener

Kitchen Mama Electric Can Opener l Was $35, Now $28.99, at Amazon 

Manual can openers are usually low-cost, and when they stop working, you can easily toss them out and replace them without any issue. However, when I added up the amount of money I was wasting replacing my tried-but-true opener, I figured this electric version was a safer bet — and I was correct. With two single taps, this opener works its magic, and it's blade-free, which means you can use it risk-free. 

2. This machine that rivals Starbucks

I could live off of the Starbucks Egg Bacon Bites, and admittingly, I spend way too much money to fund this habit. After realizing all I needed was a Sous vide machine to recreate the magic, I went all-in on this machine and was glad I did. 

With 110-watts of power and Wi-Fi connectivity, I was able to figure out how to maneuver this machine and whip up my favorite without ever leaving my house. 

3. A top-of-the-line vacuum-sealer

Sure, I love the best grill as much as the next person, but when you live in a tiny NYC apartment: you don't have a backyard, let alone an outdoor grill; that is where this indoor grill comes in handy. Designed with a non-stick grill gate, restaurant-grade cooking surface, as well as a plug-in set-up, you can cook up steaks, chickens, and seafood just as quickly as you could outdoors. 

5. Pair this wireless thermometer with the previously-mentioned grill
