With grilling season right around the corner (it's FINALLY getting warm on the East Coast), we have our eyes peeled for gadgets that will make our lives easier.

(Because who wants to stress -- *especially* in the summer?!)

Well, our friend, chef and founder of Milk Street Magazine Chris Kimball recently introduced us to is a Bottletop Baster. That's right, it claims to deliver "mess-free basting straight from the bottle."

(Of course, if you want to make your own basting sauce, we've got you covered with Rach's Whiskey BBQ Sauce!)

"It fits on almost everything," Chris says while demonstrating how to use it on our show.

(Watch for yourself in the video above!)

And the best part? It's only $4!

Pro tip from Chris: Don't baste until the very end of your grilling process!

"Don't put it on at the beginning," the chef explains, "because it'll burn."

(And that would just ruin your fun in the sun!)
