- "Shark Tank" often impresses us with its wide variety of creative solutions to everyday problems.
- In the home and kitchen, products from the show are helping us clean and cook more efficiently, waste less, and sleep better.
- From smart kitchen gadgets to pet products, these 27 "Shark Tank" alums have earned their spots in your home.
Eleven seasons in and hundreds of products later, the show "Shark Tank" continues to entertain us as well as the panel of celebrity investors with creative pitches. However, that doesn't always mean the products are actually good. Some end up being a little too creative or out-there and border on plain gimmicky or "Who would even use that?"
We looked through all the "Shark Tank" products available for purchase and came away with a selection of star items for the home that made us ask ourselves, "Why didn't we think of this earlier?"
Many solve for the wasteful designs of common products you already use, while others address the annoying inconveniences that everyone experiences.
Check out the "Shark Tank" home products that are worth buying below.
A tray that fits neatly on your wheelbarrow and holds your gardening tools
It's no fun lugging around all your gardening essentials as you do yardwork. The Burro Buddy attaches to most wheelbarrow sizes (4, 5, 6, and 7 cubic-foot wheelbarrows) and has a neat organization system for short-handle and long-handle tools, personal items like your phone or wallet, and even a drink for when you want to reward yourself.
A safe and organic alternative to pesticide
While chemicals in traditional pesticides can be toxic to people and animals, First Saturday is derived entirely from natural ingredients and still effectively dries out insects, eggs, and larvae.
A small tool that protects your fingers when you hammer nails
We've all been there: you're quickly hammering away and with one careless swoop, you hit your fingers instead of the nail. This cool magnetic tool holds the nail securely in place while protecting your fingers.
An outdoor pizza oven
In addition to fresh, wood-fired pizza, this portable and lightweight oven is also great for cooking meats, fish, and vegetables. It cooks foods at temperatures over 900°F so you'll have a delicious outdoor meal in no time.
A tool that turns you into a gift-wrapping pro
Using scissors to cut wrapping paper always seems to result in uneven or jagged cuts. The Little Elf cutter, which slides on over your tube of paper, makes smooth and perfectly straight cuts every time.
A portable bathroom deodorizer
Plop Star gets rid of potential odors before they even have a chance to start. Just drop one tablet in the toilet before you sit, wait 10 seconds, then feel free to do your business worry-free.
A bottle tool that reduces product waste
It's always a shame when you can't make the most of your condiments or bath products. This kit comes with a few adapters for different size bottles and has a clever design that gets all the product out of the bottle.
A DIY kit for kombucha enthusiasts
Sure, you can buy bottles of kombucha at the store, but if you have extra time on your hands and want to appreciate the full process, you can use this kit to make your own. It includes starter culture, pH strips, organic sugar, and more. Reviewers love how easy to follow the instructions are.
Eco-friendly cleaning supplies
Blueland's products are free of triclosan, parabens, phosphates, ammonia, or VOCs, plus they save space and plastic — the bottles are made of glass and the actual cleaner comes in tablet form so you only need to add water to make your cleaning solution. Read our review here.
A spring-loaded laundry hamper
This hamper drops down as you add clothes and rises as you remove them, meaning doing laundry will no longer be that uncomfortable chore you never look forward to. It eases the strain on your lower back, so it's especially great for expecting mothers, people with bad backs, and the elderly.
A rapid ramen cooker
Granted ramen is already a pretty convenient meal to make, this tool makes the process even easier. The water line stops you from overfilling the bowl, the bowl doesn't get overly hot, and you don't need to use a pot and stove. It's perfect for anyone who doesn't have access to a kitchen, including students living in dorms and office workers.
A tiny spatula to get every last drop of sauce or makeup
Think about all the ketchup, nail polish, and foundation that goes wasted because you can't get to the last remnants in the bottle. This small tool helps you get in all the nooks and crannies of bottles — so you're really getting your money's worth.
A zip-up bedding set
It usually takes at least a few attempts to get your children to make their beds. There's no excuse with this bedding set because the fitted sheet and comforter are zipped together into one unit.
A splatter screen that still lets you access your pan to cook
While traditional splatter screens cover the pan, making it difficult to check on your food and resulting in condensation, the funnel-like Frywall surrounds the perimeter of the pan. The BPA-free silicone accessory still protects from oil splatters, while allowing you to continue cooking. Read our review here.
Reusable bamboo paper towels
These durable, absorbent towels are an eco-friendly paper towel alternative made of organic bamboo. Each sheet looks and feels like a regular paper towel, but can be washed up to 100 times. Each roll of 30 Bambooee sheets is equivalent to 429 paper towel rolls. Read our review here.
A suction silicone placemat
The fact that you just spent an hour lovingly cooking a homemade meal and even organized it into easy-to-eat compartments often means nothing to a baby or toddler, who can hurl dinner to the floor in one easy swoop. This placemat will stay right in place on any flat surface, making it that much easier to get food from the plate into your child's mouth. Read our review here.
A home gym rack
This profile rack transforms any small space into your own gym. It comes with 11-gauge steel uprights and a 42" kipping pull-up bar and can be folded away when not in use.
A more effective way to sweep your floor
Sweeping is a pain, especially when you realize traditional broom and dustpans don't even catch all the dirt and debris on the floor. This special broom has electrostatic bristles to collect all types of debris, and uses a push-and-pull motion to scrape it into a foot-operated dustpan. You only need to use one hand to operate it, plus you never have to bend or stoop over.
A smart baby changing pad and scale
It's easier than ever to track your baby's development with this modern nursery innovation. The soft foam pad tracks changes in weight to the .25 of an ounce and automatically syncs with the Hatch Baby app so you can view progress and learn new insights about your baby. The product grew out of the co-founder's own experience as a mother when she couldn't tell whether she was breastfeeding enough.
A cold brew maker that slips right onto a mason jar
Bruw is a two-sided mason jar system that lets you make rich and delicious cold brew without the mess. After adding coffee grounds and water, then refrigerating the jar for 12 to 18 hours, simply attach the filter straw side down, add the second jar on top, and flip to begin the filtering process.
Reusable silicone food bags
This eco-friendly alternative to plastic bags has multiple uses: for storage and transportation, marinating, or sous vide. Its air-tight, pinch-lock seal keeps your food fresh, and it doesn't require any additional lids or seals. The BPA-free silicone is also dishwasher-, microwave-, and oven-safe.
A natural flea and tick spray for your pets
Wondercide, a safe and natural alternative to monthly chemical treatments, was conceived after the founder's dog got pesticide poisoning from a vet-subscribed flea and tick treatment. It has no toxic effects, won't stain fur or flooring, and comes in fresh lemongrass, cedar, and rosemary scents.
Damage-free poster and picture hangers
Hang up all your movie posters, concert posters, and photos without ruining them or the wall with these magnetic stickers. Just place the sticker on the wall, then place the magnet and poster over the sticker. It works on all different types of wall textures.
A WiFi-enabled sous vide
This sous vide connects to your phone to make sous vide cooking more streamlined than ever. You can create and send recipes to the machine and precisely control the temperature from your phone with the app, letting you keep tabs on your meal even when you're not in the kitchen.
Pre-cut parchment sheets
You've baked a beautiful cake, but now you're faced with the trouble of getting it out without ruining it. This parchment paper is cut in a unique shape that lets you lift your baked goods out of the pan in a breeze. You won't have to worry about greasing the bottom enough or cutting the parchment paper yourself. If you bake a lot, you'll love this product.
Eco-friendly bamboo chopsticks
Unlike most disposable chopsticks, which are made from wood, Cropsticks use bamboo, which grows back after it's chopped. They're designed for a better dining experience: snap the top end off and use it as a chopsticks rest, then enjoy your food without getting the usual wooden splinters.
