We run them through an extensive series of tests, then write about which ones we like (and which ones we don’t). We also break down which products are best for specific situations and lifestyles, so you can make the most informed buying choice possible.

The Best Kitchen Tools and Accessories

  • ZeroWater in front of other water filter pitchers
    The Best Water Filter Pitcher

    June 22, 2016

    Great taste, affordability, and ergonomic design made the MAVEA Elemaris our pick for the best overall water filter pitcher. It doesn't have the brand recognition of Brita or ZeroWater, but it does have the performance.

  • ZeroWater filter pitcher pour
    ZeroWater Review: Can Zero be a Hero?

    June 22, 2016

    No water filter pitcher is better at removing all unsafe solids than the ZeroWater pitcher. However, it still came in second in our overall rankings due to slow filter time and average taste.

  • Brita water filter pitcher pour
    Brita Water Pitcher Review

    June 12, 2016

    The Brita has outstanding filter time and brand recognition, but it's not the best overall water filter pitcher given average filtering and ergonomic design.

  • The Best French Press Coffee Maker

    June 10, 2016

    The SterlingPro's great construction and ability to keep a cup of coffee hotter, longer, made it our choice for the best french press amongst other solid contenders.

  • The Best Aluminum Can Crusher

    April 1, 2016

    We took down over 1000 soda cans to determine our selection of the best can crusher: the Easy Pull Auto Dispenser. The Easy Pull is quick, inexpensive, risk-free and easy to use.

  • The Best Popcorn Maker

    April 1, 2016

    Nothing keeps it poppin' quite like the Lékué, which is portable, functional, and affordable -- a great all-around package in a popcorn maker.

  • The Best Whiskey Stones

    February 3, 2016

    We spent more than 45 hours testing, sipping, and analyzing the best whiskey stones on the market to determine that Balls of Steel handily leads the pack.
