We're hoping the Vortex Plus will get a second generation or rerelease, as this model from the maker of the Instant Pot doesn't feel ready for prime time.
The TP04 boasts better features than any other air purifier on the market, but it's a lot more than most people need.
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.
Skip this machine if want to save money -- or just prefer the taste of homemade roti.

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.

Both of Hue's new Signe fixtures are much too niche -- and much too expensive -- for us to recommend.
The Black & Decker Purify air fryer is a perfect for frugal shoppers, but you'll need something bigger to feed a crowd.
The Nutri Ninja Auto-IQ Compact system doesn't make the most of its power or its pieces. It's a fine if underwhelming blender.
