If you love watching videos on TikTok of people packing healthy lunches and prepping meals for the week, you may feel inspired. There are more than a few benefits to meal prepping beyond healthier eating. Pre-planning saves you time during the week and money (especially if you usually order takeout), and it takes the guesswork out of the age-old question, “What’s for dinner?”
Whether you’re new to meal prepping or want to step up your game, check out these kitchen gadgets and tools from Amazon to make cooking easier and storing food better.
1. Glass Food Storage Container, 10-Pack, $39.99 (Orig. $42.49)
Keep food sealed tightly and ready to go for the week in these glass food storage containers. They’re class and safe for the freezer, fridge, microwave and oven.

2. Cutting Board with Collapsible Containers and Graters, $59.95 (Orig. $64.50)
This bamboo cutting board makes for the ultimate meal prep station. It has a “drop zone” on one side, so you can slide it over and into one of the included silicone containers when you’re done chopping produce. (The containers are also collapsible to save you space in the kitchen.) The cutting board also comes with four types of food graters for grating food right over the container. The goal: less mess and more convenience.
3. DASH Rapid Egg Cooker, $19.99
Make up to six hard-boiled eggs at a time for breakfast, mid-day snacking, salads and more with the DASH Rapid Egg Cooker. The eggs come out perfect every time, and cleanup is a breeze. Nonetheless, you can also use this gadget to make soft-boiled eggs, poached eggs and omelets.
4. OXO Good Grips Little Salad Dressing Shaker, $11.95
Unfortunately, salad dressings often have a hidden amount of sugar, fat and ingredients you can’t pronounce. Make your own at home with this handy dressing shaker and know exactly what’s going into your salad — it will taste fresher, too.
5. DASH Deluxe Sous Vide Style Egg Bite Maker, $23.99 (Orig. $29.99)
