Instant Pot Max

Stick with older Instant Pot models that are cheaper and cook food faster.

Philips Airfryer XXL

The Philips Airfryer XXL cooks in big batches but costs too much considering its flaws.

Instant Pot Ace 60 Cooking Blender

Will the Ace Multi-Use Cooking and Beverage Blender be as popular as the brand's electric pressure cookers?

Dyson AM09 Hot+Cool

Unless you're the most devoted Dyson loyalist, you'll find much better values if you shop around -- including Dyson's own AM05.

Vitamix Ascent 3500

The Vitamix Ascent 3500 blender’s expensive high-tech tricks won’t thrill you, and neither should its less-than-stellar food blending.

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.

Nightwave Sleep Assistant

The Nightwave Sleep Assistant is a good natural alternative for lightly troubled sleepers, but it is rather less useful if you have a serious problem.

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.

Thermomix TM5

The Thermomix TM5 is a luxury kitchen gadget worth pining for.

Breville Smart Grinder Pro

If individual servings of pour-over or espresso are what you drink, the Breville Smart Grinder Pro might suit your needs, but experienced home baristas are better off buying a kitchen scale and a more affordable manual burr grinder.

Breville Fast Slow Pro

The Fast Slow Pro is Breville's updated version of a combination pressure and slow cooker that first appeared in 2013. The small appliance manufacturer added more cooking options and safety features.

Stratio LinkSquare

Stratio's LinkSquare is a pocket spectrometer that scans objects to try to verify their identity, detect freshness and more. But in initial tests, it's having problems.

DeLonghi Multifry 1363

The DeLonghi MultiFry 1363 isn't as flexible as an Instant Pot but air-fries food well with less oil.

Brushean Makeup Brush Sanitizer

Instead of waiting for your makeup brushes to dry all night, this product wants to use light to keep them clean.

Philips Viva Collection Airfryer HD9621

A glorified countertop toaster oven, this single trick gadget does too little and costs too much.

Instant Pot Lux 6-in-1 V3

If you want a good deal on an Instant Pot, the Lux 6-in-1 V3 is the way to go. But the Crock-Pot Express is better for novice cooks.

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.

Vago

If you travel with lots of winter gear, this tiny portable vacuum compressor easily helps you make space.
