Hamilton Beach MultiBlend Blender
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.

Oster Beehive Blender
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.

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.

REVIEW

Quirky Aros Smart Window Air Conditioner

For Nest-like cooling smarts in homes without central air, the Aros looks like an excellent option.

Dyson AM06 Air Multiplier Desk Fan 10"
REVIEW

Dyson AM06 Air Multiplier Desk Fan 10" ( White)

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.

Adaptics Drop
REVIEW

Adaptics Drop

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.

Breathometer A01 Smartphone Breathalyzer
REVIEW

Breathometer A01 Smartphone Breathalyzer

The Breathometer makes for a fun party game and a potential way to meet people in bars, but its testing results should not be taken as proof of driver safety.

iDevices iGrill Mini
REVIEW

iDevices iGrill Mini

The $39.99 iGrill Mini is a well-designed gadget that works. If you like the idea of hands-off cooking, this pint-sized probe is for you.

Frigidaire Professional 7-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker
REVIEW

Frigidaire Professional 7-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker

We expect more from a $99 slow cooker, and so should you.There are smarter upgrades than this, and they don't cost quite as much.
