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.
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 ( Contour Silver)
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.
Frigidaire Professional 4-Slice Wide Slots Toaster
The Frigidaire Professional toasts as evenly as any model we tested. It takes the guesswork out of getting your bread to the level of brownness you desire.
Cuisinart DGB-900BC Burr Grind & Brew Thermal 12-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker
The Cuisinart Burr Grind and Brew Thermal Coffeemaker tries to merge two appliances into one but you're better off buying a grinder and quality brewer separately.
Nespresso VertuoLine ( Chrome)
This well-designed machine is a very good option for fans of at-home coffee and espresso. Consider the $159.99 Bunn My Cafe MCU if you want a more versatile coffee maker.
Samsung NE58F9710WS Slide-In Electric Range with Flex Duo Oven
If you're not on a tight budget and like the idea of choosing between one or two ovens based on your needs, this might be an excellent option for you.
Cuisinart PowerEdge 1000 Watt Blender
With superior options available at the same midrange price point, this blender is just too average for us to recommend.
Panasonic FlashXpress Toaster Oven
The wee Panasonic FlashXpress Toaster Oven is endearingly quirky and almost surprisingly good at what it does. For a midrange price, you’ll get the functionality of a much more expensive model.
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.
