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 ( 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.

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.
Only consider the Vitamix S30 if personal to-go blending and quality are your objectives and saving money isn't.
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.
Oster Beehive Blender
The Oster Beehive is a subpar blender, both lagging behind other budget models and falling short of its classic namesake.

Dyson AM06 Air Multiplier Desk Fan 10" ( Blue)
The AM06 is an impressive spectacle to behold -- but it's still just a desk fan. For such an expensive device, we wish that it doubled as a space heater, like Dyson's AM05, or featured a more noticeable bump in performance. It doesn't, and that makes it difficult to recommend.
You don't need Drop to make good chocolate chip cookies, but it definitely helps ensure that your recipe ends up the same every time.
