Zojirushi Fresh Brew Plus Thermal Carafe Coffee Maker
If you have $200 to spend on a drip coffee-maker, pass on the Zojirushi Fresh Brew which makes pots that are much too bitter; buy a Bonavita BV1900TS instead.
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
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.
Anova Precision Cooker ( Black)
We loved the original Anova, and this one cooks just as well for less cash. Underwhelming smarts aside, it's a great sous vide starting point.
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.
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
This capable cooker returned consistently great results, but the so-so Bluetooth and app portion isn't quite worth the inflated price.
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.
S+ by ResMed
The S+ offers accurate tracking and insightful sleep data that any insomniac will appreciate.
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.
