Apartment hunting in Boston is overwhelming for a whole slew of reasons—heavy competition, pricing, and spiraling out of control on Craigslist are just a few of them. So, for your convenience, we’re highlighting a few Zumper listings with one unique characteristic. This round, it’s places for rent with recently renovated kitchens—because cooking is so much easier with some shiny new counter space.

Below, peruse five apartments for rent in Boston with brand new kitchens.

17 East Springfield St. #2A, South End
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,850 per month

Quartz countertops and stainless appliances such as a dishwasher and garbage disposal adorn this updated kitchen, not to mention plenty of light wood cabinets. The bathroom has had a makeover of its own, with a sleek seamless shower and mix of subway and hexagonal tiling. Crown molding, tall ceilings, and a private deck round out this parlor-floor treasure.

614 Massachusetts Ave. #10, South End
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,400 per month

Grab a bowl from the white Shaker cabinets affixed with under-mount lighting, then eat your cereal at the granite-topped breakfast bar before scooting off to work. Beautifully refinished hardwood floors top off this one-bedroom, housed inside of a bow-front brownstone.

1198 Commonwealth Ave. #41RZ, Allston
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,595 per month

Check out this top floor two-bed for a rare June 1 move in. A built-in air conditioning unit produces some icy relief, starting in the living room and permeating through any open doors. The one-wall kitchen is small but mighty: New cabinetry and stainless steel appliances (hello, built-in microwave and dishwasher) grace the room. Extra large bedroom closets and a location right on the Green Line close the deal.

52 Cambridge St., Allston
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,250 per month

Hardwood floors, overhead fans, double closets, and an adorable black-and-white tiled bathroom outfit this Allston gem. As promised, a renovated eat-in kitchen also impresses. Shiny white appliances—including a microwave—blend in perfectly with the abundant cabinets, which make uncluttered storage a cinch. Chic black countertops are an opposing pop in the whitewashed room, available September 1.

Washington St. #3, Jamaica Plain
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 2
Rent: $3,000 per month

A few blocks from the Orange Line’s Green Street stop, this three-bedroom also boasts a spanking new kitchen. Dapper dark wood cabinetry anchors the cookery, and is complemented by stainless furnishings and a glossy subway tile backsplash, which—should dinner boil over or go flying around the room—all make for incredibly easy cleanup. Gleaming floors, in-unit laundry, and several skylights make this apartment an excellent option.
