Many of us are spending a little extra time in the kitchen due to social distancing, and we've been on some fun culinary journeys because of it. Whether you've reached an "I'm tending to my sourdough bread starter" level or are simply trying to muster up the energy needed to fix a bowl of cereal, every kitchen adventure is made all the more exciting when you have some funky kitchen appliances to assist you in (or perhaps fully inspire) your recipe-making. And with so many quirky kitchen gadgets on the market, why not let your zodiac sign do the choosing for you?
While many of us don't have the kitchen space to collect every random and odd kitchen appliance on the market (on second though, I probably don't need that miniature electric fondue warmer), I think we can treat ourselves during quarantine and clear a little shelf space for something — especially if it's something useful. Oh, and the best part about these gadgets is that all of them can be ordered from Amazon and delivered straight to your doorstep — zero unnecessary trips out required.
