TikTok has taught us a lot of things—like how to create whipped coffee, find hidden Amazon gems, and life hacks we didn’t know we needed—but probably the best thing it’s brought us is handy home products. Chances are you’ve even heard your friends or family saying “TikTok made me buy it” over the last few months—and, let's be honest, you’ve probably purchased products from the app too. More than just laugh-out-loud clips, the app has become a hotspot for organization tips, cooking trends (feta pasta, anyone?), beauty products, and more.
If you’re tuned into TikTok, you’ll likely recognize some of the items below, and probably considered buying them for yourself. From the Cricut Joy to the Always Pan, we did a deep dive on 20 viral home products that have gone viral and definitely live up the hype.
1. A Cricut Joy for labeling, crafting, and more
I'm completely guilty of watching DIY home videos on TikTok, but my personal favorites use the Cricut, crafting machine. Some of my favorite crafts have used the machine to make water bottles, charcuterie boards, kitchen labels, and an acrylic calendar—to name a few. For craft lovers, the Cricut Joy is an absolute must-have as it gives the ability to create labels, shapes, prints, and so much more. Plus, its compact size makes it easy to store anywhere—like a small shelf or cubby—and it's simple to set up and use for novice crafters (like myself).
2. An easy way to find your cereal in the mornings
Leave it to TikTokers to find a gorgeous way to prevent our cereal from getting stale. This dispenser, with its 17.5-ounce capacity, will give you the perfect cereal portion and is a great addition to any kitchen, especially if you're always running out the door. Aside from looking aesthetically pleasing on your counters, it'll also help keep your cereal fresh—because, let's be honest, there's nothing worse than stale cereal—and is an easy way for children to serve themselves cereal.
3. A stuffed waffle maker
We all know that waffles are the best breakfast food, but TikTok found a way to make them even better with the Presto Stuffed Waffle Maker. Using waffle batter, bananas, chocolate chips, and peanut butter, this video showed users how to make stuffed waffles and earned a whopping 2.6 million views. The creator has made a series of videos, including BBQ Mac & Cheese Stuffed Waffles, Strawberry Banana Nutella Stuffed Waffles, and Chili Cheese Stuffed Cornbread Waffles, that have also gone viral using this waffle maker. Just throw in the batter, add your toppings, top with batter, and vióla the ultimate Sunday breakfast, brunch, or lunch.
4. A handy stair basket
Do you always have a pile of clothing, shoes, and the like accumulated on your stairs? If yes, this stair basket is exactly what you need. This TikTok video received more than 160,000 thousand likes when the creator showed users how easy it is to eliminate stair clutter with it. While fitting seamlessly onto your steps, this genius basket is big enough to hold all of the various items that normally sit on your steps and can be carried upstairs at the end of the day thanks to its straps. It's a double win as it helps organize your home and prevents you from accidentally slipping on a pair of shoes lying on the stairs.
5. A toothbrush holder to keep your counter tidy
This toothbrush holder gained popularity in this video that garnered more than 5.5 million likes because it looks great and is very functional. It stores all your teeth brushing essentials—it has five toothbrush slots, four reusable cups, and two toothpaste holders—and dispenses toothpaste evenly (and without the mess!). The holder comes in three different colorways to match your decor seamlessly.
6. A versatile slicing tool
At first glance, this slicing tool doesn't look like much. But, as seen in this viral video with more than 1.3 million views and 260 thousand likes, this slicing tool will ultimately end up saving you tons of time in the kitchen. Here's how it works: simply place your grapes, tomatoes, or similarly-sized fruit or vegetable inside and slide the bar down to slice them—it's really that easy. The tool itself is specifically created for cherry tomatoes, but the video showcases other fruits and vegetables as well.
7. A portable spot and stain cleaner
Hear me out: There's nothing worse than spending hours—and using endless products—to get a stain out of your carpet or couch. Enter: Bissell's little green portable spot and stain cleaner. After gaining major notoriety through tons of viral TikTok videos, this tiny gadget shocked users by removing the most difficult stains with minimal effort. Working to spray, scrub, and lift away dirt and stains, this little guy can be used on carpets, chairs, and more with its powerful 1400m suction power that truly gets rid of all the grime stuck to your floor. And, since the water tank is removable, TikTok users were just as easily enamored with the weirdly satisfying colored liquid that comes out of the tank through shocking before and after videos.
8. An air fryer
TikTok chefs everywhere concur that air fryers are a necessary addition to any kitchen. Regardless of whether your a master chef or a novice chef, Tik Tok has every air fryer recipe, you can imagine from the crispiest veggies to daring experiments like Oreos. As the best air fryer we've tested, the Philips Airfryer XXL crisps everything evenly and is big enough to cook a full meal. It's extremely user-friendly for everyone from Gen Z to your grandparent.
9. A microwavable popcorn popper
Looking to make air-popped popcorn without all the effort? Try the Ecolution microwavable popcorn popper.

It's a necessary addition for those of us who love air-popped popcorn but don't have the time (or effort) to sit over the stove and make it.
10. A one-step banana slicer
While food TikTok showcases us some truly incredible recipes (I'm looking at your whipped coffee and feta pasta), it also gives us helpful gadgets like this hilarious banana slicer. As seen in this video, this viral banana slicer is easy to use—just peel your banana and pop the slicer over it, and bam, a perfectly sliced banana. While cutting a banana isn't too much of a challenge, this tool makes it easy to achieve perfectly symmetrical slices to top your yogurt and acai bowls.

11. A solution to your pet hair problem
Due to a multitude of viral videos—this one being one of them—the ChomChom Roller has established a huge cult following and a 4.7-star rating and more than 57,000 reviews on Amazon. Tutorials on TikTok showcase how much pet hair, dirt, and dust the ChomChom can pick up on cloth surfaces like couches, beds, and clothing. The best part? It doesn't need batteries or electricity to operate. To use, just roll it back and forth on your desired surface, and it'll give instant results.
12. A rechargeable electric lighter
We all love lighting a candle during the fall and winter and this year—with us all being home—the coziness they bring was essential. But, as with everything, TikTok brought us a way to light them without using matches. As shown in this viral video, this electric lighter only requires electricity—not propane—to light your candles. It's way easier to clean and maintain than a box of matches, as you'll only have to recharge it every so often. Also, since there's no fire involved, it's less dangerous to have around kids.
