When it comes to accomplishing tasks that are difficult — opening stubborn jars, washing the dog, getting dinner in front of the fam on the regular, and so much more — we all need help. Sometimes that help can get strange, though. Are you ready for robotic assistance in the kitchen? Or maybe a simple, cheap, and genius hack will get it done? Here are 55 clever products on Amazon that are so damn clever they will get that task done fast — even if the task at hand is to make everyone laugh.


A weird but effective pedicure peel

Pull on the plastic socks in this foot peel mask kit and get ready for the strangest pedicure ever. It soaks your feet in a gel that is a blend of exfoliant botanical extracts and hydrating ingredients. After an hour, throw away the sock masks and go about your life. In about a week, your feet will begin to peel like a snake shedding its skin and your feet will emerge soft and smooth.


The vegetable chopper that handles all the prep work

Take the labor out of the kitchen prep work by using this vegetable chopper to mince, slice, or shred with little effort. Snap a blade into the base and either close the lid on it to dice or slide the vegetable or cheese back and forth over the blade to shred, slice, or grate. There is also an egg separator attachment. All the prepped food falls tidily into the bin below, which you can use to store them.


A tent that assembles with a toss

Be ready for a nap — or a quick change of clothes — wherever you go by packing along this pop-up tent. Just pull it out of its bag and toss it to set it up. It’s weather resistant so you can sleep in the wild and keeps the sun off to make trips to the beach more comfortable.


A black-light urine-finding flashlight

When you have a dog, you need to become a forensics expert or that sneaky canine will find a place to go that doesn’t involve going out into the weather. This UV black-light flashlight is a dog urine detector that will ferret out that place so you can clean it. Just turn off the lights and shine it around. It will light up urine spots so you know exactly where they are.


This socket tool that can move any nut

There is always one stripped nut, awkwardly shaped hook, or otherwise difficult-to-rotate thing that tries to thwart every repair project. This universal socket tool will take of that problem piece without drama. The pins retract to form a custom-shaped grip on whatever it is.


This clever tool for cleaning laptops & phones

Keeping your laptop keyboard free of cookie crumbs, dust, and desk detritus requires patience and a light hand. This laptop and phone cleaner is the portable toolkit you need for this delicate task. A gentle, retractable brush on one side sweeps away debris while a microfiber pad on the other gently and effectively cleans up the screen without leaving smudges.


The umbrella that gets the details right

This reversible umbrella fixes everything that’s wrong with the traditional ones. The C-shaped handle makes it possible to sling it over your arm so you can use the carrying hand for something else. When the umbrella is closed, the water drips off of it so you don’t have to leave it open ‘till it’s dry. And the cute patterns — there are nine of them — are on the inside when it’s open.


This dog brush & sprayer

Giving the dog a bath doesn’t have to be a battle. This brush sprayer puts the water in the palm of your hand, along with a brush so you can gently scrub the pup to get water under the fur without hurting any sensitive canine feelings with a water jet. Attach it to the hose or shower.


A pack of magic to toss in the fire

Convince friends and family that you are a magician by secretly tossing a few of these magical flames packs into the fire. Everyone will marvel at your ability to turn the flames into a rainbow assortment of colors. This is best done after intoning some Latin or other obscure and mystical-sounding mumbo jumbo. The colors last about an hour and this is a pack of 10 for repeat performances.


These adorable mushroom night-lights

Plug these mushroom night-lights into an outlet to bring a bit of adorable whimsy to your space and give the room a soft glow so you can see where you are going and chase away monsters. They come on when the lights go out — and get brighter as it gets darker — and go off when it comes back on so they are set-it-and-forget-it easy.


A plant pot that floats & spins

This levitating plant pot will quickly become the most interesting thing in your house as your plant hangs, magically, in the air. Even your plant will like this new lifestyle since the pot rotates slowly, giving it even light exposure.


A beard bib that helps keep your sinks clean

Tired of cleaning beard trimmings out of your sink? Then this bib is worth a look. Two suction cups let you attach it to your mirror so that it can catch all those trimmings as they fall. Once you’re finished shaving, simply shake it overtop of a trash can to empty it out.


A 2-sided tongue cleaner

Make cleaning your tongue an easy habit with this two-in-one tongue cleaner. There’s a brush on one side and a scraper on the other and it is roughly the same shape as a toothbrush so you can store all your dental hygiene tools in the same place. This is a pack of four to keep you well-stocked.


A tool for cutting many items faster

The tedium of slicing through a chicken breast or all those cherry tomatoes is no more. Just press the foods you need to slice between this food cutter and grab a knife. It will hold onto things while you slide a blade through them, rendering all the tomatoes halved at once and making fast work of cutting that cutlet.


This clever hack for carrying all the groceries at once

Instead of making several trips from the car with your groceries, use this weird grocery bag carrier to haul all the bags at once. It rests on your shoulder so you can hook bags to the front and back, distributing the weight, freeing your hands, and significantly increasing your carrying capacity. “I carried a month’s worth of groceries up in one trip,” said one reviewer. “[It] barely even felt like I was carrying anything.”


An electric racket for getting rid of flies

This mold for making many meatballs fast

The frostiest beer mug

There’s nothing better than a cold beer after a hard day. Unless it’s an even colder beer. And this pair of beer glasses will deliver the latter.

A cold beer poured into these will drop in temperature and stay that way for a long time. A silicone band protects your hand from the chill.

This robot that opens jars

Yes, robots are finally here to do the chores you don’t like. This jar opener takes over the often impossible task of opening jar lids. Set it on the jar, push the button, and let it do all the struggling while you wait for an open jar. It’s easy to store in a drawer, too.


These glow-in-the-dark covers for the remote

Cover your Firestick remote with this clever glow-in-the-dark silicone cover so you don’t have to turn on all the lights to hunt for the remote when it gets lost in the couch cushions. It’s light so you will hardly know it’s there but it also protects the remote from drops and spills. “Finally, a remote I can find in the dark!” said one reviewer.


A magnetic wristband that holds onto nuts & bolts

Don’t tackle that DIY project until you have this wristband to help you out.

Plus, the breathable mesh fabric won’t leave you sweating if you wind up wearing it for an extended period of time.


This vegetable scrub brush shaped like a cute potato

Not only is this scrub brush cute to look at, but the sturdy nylon bristles on the back also power through all sorts of dirt and contaminants without stripping the skin from your vegetables.

The trick for chilling any beverage fast

Sometimes you want an iced coffee. And maybe you didn’t plan ahead for this urge. If this instant beverage cooler is in your freezer, the disappointment of not having a cold cuppa is no more.

These dip clips that can help you eat in the car mess-free

When eating in your car is unavoidable, these dip clips can help you chow down without making a mess. They’re designed to fit a variety of fast food sauce containers — though you can also squirt a ketchup packet into them if that’s what you prefer. Plus, the gripper prongs on the back keep them securely fastened onto your air vents so that they’re always within reach.


A wine opener that looks like a bat

Other people just pull out a waiter’s corkscrew and get the bottle open. You, on the other hand, put on scary music, don some plastic fangs, and use this bat-winged (and eared) version of that inevitable tool. The wings close as the wine opens. The bat’s face will pop the top off of a beer, too.


This fidget cube to help you focus

Sometimes getting out of your own way so you can focus requires a clever hack. If you are a fidgeter, you are unlikely to settle down until your hands are busy. Put this fidget cube in your hand to take care of that. It has a delightful tactile surface, buttons, a joystick, and switches to keep your hands busy without distracting your mind.
