Our mission is to help you create the kitchen of your dreams by finding the best kitchen tools on the market. 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.
We spent 40 hours toasting, broiling and baking to determine that the Breville - BOV845BSS is the best toaster oven. Our new runner-up for 2019 is the Cuisinart - TOB-260N1 as a less-expensive and equally excellent toaster oven.
After 55 hours of research and testing, we found that the recently released Hamilton Beach - 41020 was the best electric kettle. Our runner-up, the T-fal - BF6138, is a compact, budget model for smaller kitchens and living spaces.
After more than 60 hours of researching, handling, testing, and cleaning 16 of the best oven mitts on the market, we concluded that the HOMWE - Silicone Oven Mitts are our top choice. They offer more coverage of the wrist and forearm than any other mitt we tested and are flexible enough to manage small kitchen tools.
The SterlingPro's great construction and ability to keep a cup of coffee hotter for longer made it our choice for the best French press amongst other solid contenders. For a classic-style French press, we also recommend the Bodum - Chambord
