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.

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.

Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven
REVIEW

Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven

Packing the benefits of pressure cooking into a countertop oven is a pretty clever idea. Chef Puck's oven isn't perfect, and at $249 it isn't for everyone, but crafty home cooks will nonetheless appreciate its performance.

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.

Vitamix 7500
REVIEW

Vitamix 7500 ( Black)

As tempting as that freakishly powerful motor is, it's difficult to justify the $529 Vitamix over some of the more affordable competitors available.

Blendtec Designer Series WildSide Blender
REVIEW

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.
