With so many types and containers of alcohol lying around, a good bartender needs a place to store them all — not to mention keep them cool. This kegerator and keg beer cooler by Edgestar holds U.S. standard one-quarter and half kegs. With a temperature range of low 30s to mid 40s, it can even double as a refrigerator in a pinch. When you’re busy tending bar, any device that can serve double-duty is one worth having on hand. Casters also make this gadget super mobile, so you can move it around with you as you’re making and pouring drinks for your guests. There’s even a drip tray that helps to minimize messes if a container accidentally spills. Hey, the last thing you want to do after a night of serving drinks is clean up, right?

Good wine needs to be aerated, and as a pro bartender, you need a good aerator to get the job done. This one by Aervana provides instant aeration with the push of a button, then pours the wine straight into your waiting glass. No need to aim, lift, or worry about spilling. Aervana also gets the job done effectively by providing more air contact surface to speed up the oxidation process, so you and your guests aren’t waiting around to get your drink on. Plus, it keeps wine sediment in the bottom of the bottle and out of your glass, which is one less thing for you to worry about as the bartender.

Icebirg Lite ($199)

Having a steady supply of ice is an annoying but necessary part of being a good bartender. The best way to produce ice isn’t an ice cube tray, which can be slow and tends to spill. The Icebirg Lite creates uniformly sized balls of ice every time, and they’re exactly 2.5 inches — perfect for most glasses and cups. The stainless steel guide rods are easy to use and maneuver, and a flavor PRO coating helps to promote flavor protection. This kind of high-performance gadget is something you will frequently find in high-end bars, but now you can have one at home, too.

This electric wine bottle opener removes corks in seconds, and you’re guaranteed up to 45 bottles on a single charge.
