Testing the best electric kettles over 45 hours during the course of one month led us to pick the Hamilton Beach 1.7 liter, which has all the essential functions of many kettles two to three times its price.
The Best Appliances
After blending seven blenders in several different tests to measure motor power and overall usability, the NutrilBullet Pro 900 Series was our pick for the best overall personal blender.
We tested four units over 100+ hours (and one over two years) in order to make our top pick.
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.
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.
The NutriBullet comes with a ton of hype, but for the most part, it delivers. It took first in our test of the best personal blenders.
