The Best Appliances

Buying an appliance is a major decision. Most are not cheap, and moreso, they’re going to be prominent parts of your life. We help with that decision by doing the hard work for you, taking the purchase anxiety off the table with hundreds of hours of research and testing in order to make a recommendation that’s best for you — and also not overly expensive. Check out our product reviews below to make sure you get the absolutely best appliance for your home and situation.

  • The Best Food Dehydrator

    LEM Products - 1152

    After slicing dozens of apples, puréeing pints of strawberries to dry and trying a gamut of dried treats, we found the LEM 1152 to be the best food dehydrator.

  • The Best Deep Fryer

    Cuisinart - CDF-200

    We worked with a professional chef with 10 years experience in the kitchen to test seven of the top deep fryers, frying 30+ lbs. of chicken and French fries to find the best deep fryer for most home cooks.

  • The Best Air Fryers

    Black+Decker - Purifry

    We spent more than 35 hours testing air fryers and cooking recipes to determine that the Black+Decker Purify Air Fryer is the best option for most people.

  • The Best Toaster Oven

    Breville - BOV845BSS

    After over 40 hours of researching, baking, toasting, broiling, and carbo-loading we found the Breville BOV845BSS to be best toaster oven, with a great runner-up too.

  • The Best Single-Cup Coffee Maker

    Keurig - 2.0 K575

    After two weeks of drinking dozens of cups of coffee, we found a product from Keurig to be the best single-cup coffee maker. It makes stronger, faster and hotter coffee, and its sleek design features a user-friendly LED screen.

  • The Best Portable Air Conditioner

    Whynter - 12,000 BTU

    We tested eight portable AC units for over 150+ hours over four summers so you don't have to break a sweat finding the best unit. Check out our cooling comparison data, and learn if a single or dual hose model is better for you.

  • The NutriBullet vs Vitamix

    NutriBullet Pro

    In the battle of powerhouse blenders, the Nutribullet comes in first, especially as a personal blender choice. If you want to get a little more versatile, the Vitamix has its perks, but isn't quite worth the price.

  • Vitamix S30 Review: Is It Worth It?

    Vitamix - S30

    The Vitamix S30 is a great personal blender -- its just not worth the $250+ you'll pay for it if you're using it for those reasons. If you want a real, more versatile blender, upgrade in size.
