It doesn’t matter if your friends offer to bring the seven-layer dip and wings, hosting a game day bash requires a lot of time and effort in the kitchen. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither was your epic spread of chicken wings, subs, and spinach-artichoke dip. Of course, even when you’ve cooked everything to perfection, you have to plate your pulled pork nachos, serve the buffalo chicken, and stick toothpicks adorned with mini footballs through each slider. Ugh.

But if we told you it didn’t have to be that way? That there are products that can make prepping for your party easy and, well, fun?

With any luck, the seven products below will help you spend less time cooking so you can actually enjoy the big game.
