PicoBrew Zymatic
REVIEW

PicoBrew Zymatic

Unless you have a very specific need for the data tracking or automation provided by the PicoBrew Zymatic, you will likely see very limited benefit for the cost of this machine over traditional home-brewing equipment.

SousVant Circulating Sous Vide Oven
REVIEW

SousVant Circulating Sous Vide Oven

The SousVant is the best self-contained water bath we've tested. Anova and Nomiku still make better places to start with sous vide, but the SousVant is a fine option if you're ready to dive in.

Eades Appliance Technology SousVide Supreme
REVIEW

Eades Appliance Technology SousVide Supreme

Eades Appliance Technology's SousVide Supreme performs pretty well, but it's missing features that would make it much easier to use.

Instant Pot Smart
REVIEW

Instant Pot Smart

This capable cooker returned consistently great results, but the so-so Bluetooth and app portion isn't quite worth the inflated price.

REVIEW

3 Squares Tim3 Machin3

Though a bit pricey, the Tim3 Machin3 is well-rounded enough to merit consideration, especially if you think you'd enjoy using the quinoa and yogurt settings.

KitchenAid Pro Line 4-Slice Toaster
REVIEW

KitchenAid Pro Line 4-Slice Toaster

It might look the part of a $500 machine, but the KitchenAid Pro Line didn't toast any better than the $30 Hamilton Beach Classic Chrome Toaster.

REVIEW

Hamilton Beach Classic Chrome 2-Slice Toaster

Even if you don't expect much from your toaster, you can do better than this.

KitchenAid 4-Slice Manual Toaster w/Digital Display
REVIEW

KitchenAid 4-Slice Manual Toaster w/Digital Display ( Empire Red)

Buying the KitchenAid 4-Slice Manual only makes sense if you have a weakness for retro appliance looks, otherwise you'd be better served by cheaper machines which make toast better and faster.

Frigidaire Professional 4-Slice Wide Slots Toaster
REVIEW

Frigidaire Professional 4-Slice Wide Slots Toaster

The Frigidaire Professional toasts as evenly as any model we tested. It takes the guesswork out of getting your bread to the level of brownness you desire.

Cuisinart Touch to Toast Leverless 4-Slice Toaster
REVIEW

Cuisinart Touch to Toast Leverless 4-Slice Toaster ( CPT-440)

At $100, this toaster is a tough splurge to justify, but not an impossible one, given that it gets the job done quite well.
