REVIEW

Babolat Play Pure Drive

The Babolat Play Pure Drive is the best implementation of technology in a tennis racket, but the data it delivers won't necessarily help you become a pro.

Dyson AM09 Hot+Cool ( white)

Unless you're the most devoted Dyson loyalist, you'll find much better values if you shop around -- including Dyson's own AM05.

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.

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

REVIEW

NutriBullet Pro 900

Beneath all the health hype, you'll find a competent blender that gets caught in the middle between the best single-serve smoothie makers and the best full-size multitaskers.

Vitamix S30

Only consider the Vitamix S30 if personal to-go blending and quality are your objectives and saving money isn't.

REVIEW

Hamilton Beach MultiBlend Blender

For basic nuts-and-bolts blending on a budget, the Hamilton Beach MultiBlend delivers, though other models offer greater flexibility and food-processing horsepower.

REVIEW

Oster Beehive Blender

The Oster Beehive is a subpar blender, both lagging behind other budget models and falling short of its classic namesake.

REVIEW

Ninja Nutri Ninja BL450

This is a powerful and effective single-serve blender that won't cost a fortune, just don't expect it to go too far beyond the line of duty.
