Remember when catalogs were super thick and you got SO many of them in the mail? It was the best, honestly. My grandmother and I loved poring over home and gift catalogs together when I was little, flagging countless pages of interesting items that caught our eyes. One catalog in particular that I remember was Miles Kimball, which was full of useful, out-of-the-box gadgets and quirky accessories for your kitchen and home. So imagine my surprise when I was cruising Amazon recently and stumbled upon the Miles Kimball storefront! The company has their own website and still sends out catalogs (for over 75 years!), but now you can shop the brand alongside your weekly groceries, too. I happily dove in, feeling a serious tidal wave of nostalgia, since many of the tried-and-true products are still the same — and with very affordable price points, to boot. Take a look below at six useful picks for your kitchen.

These marble-patterned burner covers, available in both black and white, will easily hide drips, spills, and unsightly burners for both gas and electric ranges. The two-piece set has been a mainstay of Miles Kimball for quite some time, and for good reason: They have over 2,000 five-star reviews, many remarking on the affordable price point and how hard it is to find covers for gas ranges. "Perfect to add space to your kitchen, mine is very small and don't have enough counter for my cooking and at the same time looks nice," one reviewer says. "Glad I bought it!"

Home cooks and bakers will *love* this ridiculously handy little kitchen gadget that everyone needs at one point or another. The stainless steel refrigerator magnet includes both standard and metric conversions to divide or multiply recipes in half or thirds.

Looking for a sturdy over-the-door organizer to maximize storage? This extra-long pick works well for any room in your home (but shouldn't hold any weight over 22 lbs. total). Lots of reviewers say they love this item for their pantry, and one customer shares, "Our food pantry was so full of stuff that I could not find things easily. Amazing what these hanging shelves did to open up the space. Now, I can put bulky items on the hanging baskets and free up the pantry shelves so that I can find things easily. I should have done this ten years ago. And it's not expensive."

Skip deep-frying your French fries and try this non-stick, oven- and dishwasher-safe oven crisper pan instead. It evenly circulates and distributes heat, saving you a little cook time. "This fully met my expectations and was a steal at the price," says one reviewer. "Have cooked fish and chips with frozen cod & fries and gotten the crisp but not burned results I never got on other pans. Have also done chicken fingers and garlic bread."

Snag this pretty, eye-catching Depression-style glass salt cellar to place on your kitchen counter. Not only does it give off nostalgic vibes, but it also keeps your favorite seasonings fresh. Keep it by your stove so you can easily toss in salt, peppercorns, or anything else as you cook.

Do you have five spare inches between your stove and fridge? You're in luck, because this slim, affordable rolling cart is the perfect item to maximize storage space in small areas. It's a snap to assemble, and has nearly 2,000 glowing reviews. One customer says, "We liked this so much, we bought a second one. We have a super small apartment, and even smaller kitchen. This cart frees up some much needed cabinet space!"
