1. A genius sandwich bread dispenser reviewers say helps keep loaves of sandwich bread fresher longer (think: weeks) because it’s 2023 and it’s time we finally put an end to that annoying moment of discovering green spots a few days after grocery shopping and having to throw away half the loaf.

Promising review: “The Buddeez Sandwich Bread Dispenser is great! It does exactly what it was intended for. I live alone and I don’t quite go through bread often enough before the last quarter section of the loaf starts to go stale. I was originally looking for something to put a loaf of bread in as a shell for my vacuum sealer, that would keep the bread from getting crushed from the pressure. This dispenser solved all of my problems. Thank you!” —DRMcQuaig

Promising review: “These have been a GAME CHANGER in this house!! My son has always begged me for Uncrustables but my wallet didn’t agree with them. I LOVE being able to make them at home and customize them to exactly what they would like them filled with!

Promising review: “I’m gadget-obsessed and bought this on a whim, and I’m pretty impressed. I used Pam spray, English muffins, ham, cheese, and an egg. I heated it up a little past the recommended time, set a timer for five minutes, used tongs to lift up the compartments and whaddya know! A perfect, cute little sandwich! I pulled it out with a plastic spatula and set it on a tiny cookie rack to cool so the bottom wouldn’t get soggy. Nothing leaked, nothing stuck. Very compact and tidy. Let the contraption cool, then rinse and wipe.” —Amazoniac
