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.

Nomiku
REVIEW

Nomiku

The Nomiku is a great kitchen gadget, but it's the wrong time to buy one. Shop around for a cheaper competitor -- or hold out for Nomiku 2.0.

NutriBullet Pro 900
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.

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.

REVIEW

Hamilton Beach Stay or Go Blender 52400

For simple, travel-size smoothie making, look to the affordable Hamilton Beach Stay or Go Blender, but you'll have to spend more for hard-core food processing.

Crock-Pot WeMo Smart Slow Cooker
REVIEW

Crock-Pot WeMo Smart Slow Cooker

If you have a stable home Wi-Fi connection and want more control over your slow-cooked meals, Belkin and Jarden's Crock-Pot WeMo Smart Slow Cooker can give you the on-the-go access you crave. For everyone else, it's an overpriced slow cooker that makes a hands-off process much more involved.
