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.
Pricing not available
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.
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 ( Onyx Black)
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.
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
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.
iDevices Kitchen Thermometer
This dual-probe Kitchen Thermometer is expensive, but you can trust it to turn out perfectly prepared food with little to no effort on your part.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
Ball Freshtech Automatic Home Canning System
For many, I think the convenience of the Ball Freshtech Automatic Home Canning System will be worth the price. It's a fantastic starter kit and a great option for experienced canners who want to complete a batch in less time.
Blendtec Designer Series WildSide Blender
Do you really need a 9-in-1 kitchen appliance? If you aren't planning to make massive quantities of nut butter (or other relatively obscure things) regularly, you might actually prefer something less intense.
Hamilton Beach Smoothie Smart Blender ( 56206)
This blender is a great budget option that will make smoothies and other simple snacks without complaint. Just don't expect anything extraordinary from it and you won't be disappointed.
Breville Hemisphere Control Blender
If you want a high-end blender that can multitask for you, the Breville may be worth the cost. If you're looking for a basic blender, there are solid options out there for less money.
Frigidaire Professional 6-Slice Convection Toaster Oven
The Frigidaire Professional 6-Slice Convection Toaster Oven's stainless steel finish and LCD screen may draw you in, but a major design flaw makes this toaster oven little more than a pretty face.
Withings Wi-Fi Digital Body Scale ( Black)
The $159 ultraflexible Withings Body Scale, once the pinnacle of home weight measurement, is losing its edge in the face of better competition.
