1. A digital picture frame ideal for loved ones who may be far away. People can update the frame with photos, keeping their friends and family in the loop as their life unfolds.

Amazon

Promising review: "This photo frame is exactly what I was looking for! It comes in a beautiful blue box and is packaged very well. Excellent, if you are going to give this as a gift! I got it for myself, so I know that setting it up with the app is a breeze. Just connect to Wi-Fi and you can easily add photos to it. It has tons of features, like being able to automatically detect when it's dark in the room and shutting the screen off — or you can set it to whatever schedule you like. Lots of smart features, like Alexa, makes it really easy to change photos. BUT the most amazing part is the screen. It was the highest resolution of all of the frames I have seen and it really shows! The screen looks like an actual photo. When I set it up on my desk at work, my coworkers all commented on how cool it looked. Getting this was a great idea!" —Henry G Wolf VII

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with free same-day shipping and two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

2. A three-speed Bluetooth vinyl player with a sophisticated sleek wood design that'll pair nicely with their taste in music. You can't get much more sophisticated than a bustling vinyl collection.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "My girlfriend always wanted to buy vinyl records but we weren't able to because we don't have a vinyl player. I've decided to get this for her. She was so happy as soon as she opened it. It also has additional features other than playing vinyl records. It adds a modern feature by having Bluetooth connectivity so you can use it as a wireless Bluetooth speaker. The wood finish is perfect for our living room even though I don't think it is a real wood. I'm really happy with the sound this thing produces. It has stereo speakers, which is very great since it can easily fill a medium-size room. Overall, I'm very glad I was able to find a good vinyl player for my money with some added features." —Viky

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with free same-day shipping and two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

Promising review: "I love how easy it was to use! It also has a little light that turns on underneath so you can see the spices come out. I love that I can interchange the pods so I can use all my spices I like to cook with! Super easy to store as well!" —Bradley Cooper the Maltipoo

5. An eight-person tent for glampers who can camp no other way than with a roomy screened-in tent complete with covered awning. Imagine the view from this tent overlooking the lake at sunrise 🤩.

amazon.com, amazon.com

It has a large front awning for dry tent entry, rain fly, zippered windows, mesh roof vents, gear loft, and carry bag.

Promising reviews: "We searched through reviews and decided on this tent. Best move we could have made. We were novice campers approaching retirement and were looking for something that would be roomy for us and could accommodate our grown kids and grandkids. This tent sets up easy and has great ventilation. We could fit two queen mattresses; one in each room. It did great on literally our third night camping EVER by staying completely dry during a four-hour rain event." —David Brown

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $159.79+ (available in two colors).

6. A self-cleaning water bottle because they lost the top to their favorite water bottle and you're so thoughtful that you not only want to replace it, but you want to upgrade their hydration experience with a bottle that'll give them pure water wherever they go.

Promising review: "I bought a second one! Took it camping with my dad and he mentioned how nice it was so got him one as well. They even have a bigger size now for all you thirsty folks. I’m very happy with my new Larq bottle! I love the sleek, simple design. I washed upon receiving it and tested it out by leaving water in it through the weekend and letting it clean itself this morning; it had no smell or metallic taste like every other water bottle I’ve used. The insulation works really well, too. I will definitely be taking it with me when I go on backpacking trips. I will easily be able to get cold water from a lake and use the UV cleaning to drink it immediately. I love that I have a cleaning system and water bottle all in one, no more boiling or bringing multiple parts just to have clean water!" —Tyler D.

8. A Sony glass sound speaker so ~bad and bougie~ that any recipient that is particular about the sound quality of their music will gasp at this both stylish and sound-efficient speaker.

@sonyelectronics / Via instagram.com

My family is in the music biz so sound quality is a huge deal when it comes to purchasing anything from headphones to speakers. When I saw this, I thought that it looked pretty but there was probably a sacrifice in sound quality because of its chic design. But let 👏🏽 me 👏🏽 tell 👏🏽 you — baby, this right here is it! I was pleasantly shocked that it looked fantastic literally anywhere I put it in my house, but it also sounds amazing. I mean duh, it's Sony, but I was still happily surprised. If you can swing the price, it's truly a gift for anyone, not just sound snobs like me. 

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with free same-day shipping and two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $298.

Or, if they'd like to throw in a matching ~Perfect Pot~ — decisions, decisions. And, this way, if someone does end up getting them one of those, they can still shop dinnerware and other kitchen accessories on the site.

10. An Ember temperature control ceramic mug in case the tea and coffee-lover in your life is in need of a mug upgrade. This mug will keep their beverage hot, per their temp preference.

Amazon

You remotely adjust the temperature to get it just right, and you can also select a personalized LED color.

Promising review: "I don't know how I lived without this. I love drinking my tea out of an open top mug — just the way it feels in my hand and the heat coming from the top of the cup — it's perfection. I've used Yeti's which retain heat but not as well if you remove the top. This is perfect. I loved being able to adjust the temperature of my beverages easily. After, I had jaw surgery and had to lower what I am used to. It is a critical key to my functioning in the morning and throughout the day, especially on the weekends. I wish I could purchase multiple bases to keep in different places around my house." —VWhite@Duke

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with free same-day shipping and two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $129.95 (available in three colors).

11. A Mint mattress from Tuft & Needle that's been hailed as the best mattress for couples. Even if your parent is solo, they'll still enjoy the adaptive foam and progressive support so they can wake up more rested and pain-free in the morning.

@tuftandneedle / Via instagram.com

Promising review: "This mattress has really helped me. I had lower back pain that I was seeing a chiropractor for but I no longer had time in my schedule to see. We were also overdue for a new mattress, while my back pain had returned. My back is drastically better since sleeping on this mattress. I went from having my back seize several times per day, to some limited tenderness once or twice per week. I'm basically functional again. And, the mattress wasn't life altering when I first laid on it. But maybe that's the point? It should feel just normal to be aligned normally? I wake up less in the night and I have way less back pain, and for me that's a win." —Another Sarah

Tuft & Needle Shipping Info: Order by Dec. 15 to get it before Christmas! Delivery typically take two to seven business days via FedEx depending on supply, weather, and holidays. Same-day delivery is available for select zip codes in Austin, Phoenix, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Raleigh, San Francisco, and Seattle.

12. A linen sheet set complete with everything they need to upgrade their bed linens: a fitted sheet, a duvet cover, and a pillowcase set. Now, time to dream 😴.

Parachute

Promising review: "The color is gorgeous and exactly what I expected. This is my second duvet from Parachute and as a lover of linen bedding, I am totally impressed with the quality and feel. I’m definitely a loyal fan of Parachute bedding." —Toni N.

13. A Keurig smart coffee maker for coffee lovers who are looking to truly customize their brewing experience.

Keurig

Promising review: "I’m a Keurig fanatic and this one is the best!! I have bought at least 10! Some I have given as gifts and have passed a few down to family members. This is a smart Keurig and I love technology even at the ripe, fantastic age of 85! However before you tell Alexa to make a cup of coffee make sure you have a mug in place!" —Janis L. Davis

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with free same-day shipping and two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $199.99.

14. A lighted mirror with a built-in Bluetooth speaker that'll elevate their vanity experience, giving them the perfect light to illuminate their natural beauty. Plus, who doesn't want Evanescence blaring in the background while they get ready for the day.

Amazon

Promising review: "I was honestly surprised at how loud the speaker was for how cheap the mirror is. It’s obviously not going to be like a giant expensive speaker, but if you just want to listen to music, YouTube videos, or podcasts while doing makeup, it’s perfect. You also don’t have to use the cable on it all the time, just charge it and take it off." —Layla

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with free same-day shipping and two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (available in three colors).

15. An Amazon Echo because every parent deserves a personal assistant. You know, someone they can yell at who actually listens to them.

Amazon

I absolutely LOVE my Echo. I got one for my parents last year during the pre-Black Friday sales. There was no learning curve at all. It had a super easy setup and they learned how to boss Alexa around in no time. They can easily set their alarms, play music, or call my nephews from the device. It's especially handy for reminding them to do things they might otherwise forget. If they're looking to make their house a smart house, start with the Echo. 

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with free same-day shipping and two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Corelle Shipping Info: Express three-day shipping options available at an additional cost.

Get it from Corelle for $85

17. A Canon smartphone printer because those special moments shouldn't be trapped in a phone vault forever. With the smartphone printer, they can chose the best photos from their phone and print them on the spot.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "I've been wanting to elevate my journaling with pictures, so I started researching these ZINK photo printers since the sticker paper doesn't add bulk. I decided to pick this one since it seemed to be the one with the most realistic color out of the bunch. It's very teeny and cute, and the setup was shockingly simple and easy to follow. It prints so quickly, and the machine is quiet. In a room with ambient noise, you can barely hear it printing! It's almost soothing. All in all, I'm really impressed with this printer, and I'm glad I ended up going with this one." —Vi Ferris

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with free same-day shipping and two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $99.99.

18. A Ninja Foodie indoor grill to tackle all of their grilling needs in addition to their air frying, roasting, baking, broiling, dehydrating, and more. I mean seriously, what else could they ask for?

@ninjakitchen / Via instagram.com

Promising review: "I have to say this machine is absolutely amazing. It exceeded my expectations by far. I have cooked ribeyes, shrimp, pork loin, whole chicken, and fried chicken in the past week. I can't believe how well it cooks and you don't have to deal with grease splatter. Cleanup is very easy and it takes less than a minute to put the grate and grease catcher in the dish washer. It radiates almost no heat. If you're wondering if you should buy don't hesitate." —Eezie’s Daylily Farm

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with free same-day shipping and two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

19. A smart mop that'll clean up messes as they happen. Imagine all the things your parents could do if they never had to lift a finger again.

the smart mop
Amazon

Promising review: "I love this thing! What can I say? I'm not mopping the floor. Maps out the house and just goes to task. As soon as I unpacked it, loaded it with water and cleanser, went to bed, and woke up with clean and pretty hardwood floors. It's too high to get under my cabinets to the edge of the floor at the kick plate so I use a wet Swiffer under the cabinets. However this thing does all the heavy lifting!" —Doreen Duggan

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with free same-day shipping and two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $349.

20. A luxury travel pillow so they won't have to spend the first two days of their next vacation trying to work the crook out of their neck.

Ostrichpillow

Promising review: "I recently took a business trip to Berlin, eight hours plus two more on at the airport. My wife bought this for me, as it was going to be a fast trip, so I needed to be relatively fresh there. I was able to sleep comfortably without any neck pain at all. My colleague got one and did not regret." —Stephanie

Get it from Amazon for $59.99 or from Ostrichpillow for $60 (available in three colors).

21. An air fryer with rotisserie oven that makes for the perfect set-it-and-forget-it kitchen device. Add your ingredients, set the temp and a timer, and let the air fryer do the rest of the work. (Pssst, there are so many recipes on Tasty!)

Amazon

Promising review: "I researched air fryers for months before I bought and I am glad I did. This one is top notch. Cleans easy, cooks fast and evenly, and I love the window in the front to see the food." —Kelly J Midori

"OMG I love this unit. It does everything: toasts, warms pizza, air fries cheese stick/jalapeño poppers perfectly, cooks chicken, bacon, and sausage. I use it for everything!" —Tina

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with free same-day shipping and two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $139.99.

22. A Boxxle box wine dispenser made to hold that boxed wine they love so much. If you don't have to mess with bottles then don't. This dispenser can hold up to three liters of wine and keep it fresh for up to six weeks.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This little guy is so worth it! We enjoy a fair amount of boxed wine, so we almost always have a bag in the Boxxle. It really does dispense until the bag is pretty much empty, you have to see it to believe it. It looks nice on the counter, and blocks all light from getting to the bag of wine. After struggling with dispensing the last of the wine from the traditional box (seriously, there seemed to always be at least a bottle still left when we had to start the tilt, shake, tilt, shake again antics) it's pleasurable to use the Boxxle!" —Andrea W

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with free same-day shipping and two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $98.99.

23. A Roku streaming bar to give them all the streaming power they need to watch their favorite shows and the power of surround sound for a cinematic sound experience.

Roku

Promising review: "Provides more than enough bass (set on bass boost) without disturbing my neighbors (condo) while providing a nice cinematic feel. The voice clarity setting does make it easier to understand for those shows that mumble too much. Of course the soundbar works using the built-in Roku but it also works when I switch TV inputs to cable for sound as long as the Roku isn't streaming on the other input. I forgot to say, I'm using the optical cable that was provided." —dp

Get it from Amazon for $169.94.

24. An Oculus Quest 2 they'll probably not understand at first but once they get the hang of it, they'll full on gamers. Don't be surprised if they start cancelling plans so they can stay home and play with it.

Oculus

Promising review: "I absolutely love the Quest 2. Everyone in the family uses it at least once a day. It keeps us active and the games are really fun. I have wanted a VR set for the longest time but they were always to expensive. This set is affordable and works for all our needs." —Patricia

Shipping Info: Shipping time is determined by location.

Get it from Oculus for $299 (available in two storage sizes).

25. A minimalist wallet and money clip that can hold 12 cards — which means they can finally ditch that bulky wallet that makes their butt cheek bigger on one side.

@ridgewallet / Via instagram.com, @ridgewallet / Via instagram.com

This can hold up to 12 cards and has a money clip for carrying cash. Even with the max amount of cards, the wallet doesn't lose its small, compact shape so traveling with it will be easy and breezy. No more bulky wallets taking up unnecessary space!

Promising review: "Bought this as a gift for my brother-in-law but I've had my own Ridge wallet for years. Only have good things to say about about it. I'm not easy on my stuff and mine still looks new." —Amazon Customer

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $85+ (other styles and colors available here).

26. A Breville sous vide with the power to heat food to the precise temperature they want it — no more, no less — so they'll never overcook it.

Amazon

This unit is pretty small compared to other sous vide machines and lightweight. Plus, it can connect to Wi-Fi via Bluetooth so you can keep tabs on what's cooking (and how long you have left) in an app.

Promising review: "Love it. I've made crème brûlée, egg bites, and a couple of rib roasts. I'm saving so much money on NOT buying Starbucks egg bites it was worth it for that alone. I can't compare it to other sous vide units, but it heats quickly, the depth works well (I use my big old All-Clad lobster pot and clip it on the side, but before I pulled the lobster pot out I set it down in my Dutch oven and I loved the magnet that stood it up). The app is OK. It does its job. I like being able to check on the timer from wherever. I would buy again." —erin johnson

Courant

Promising review: "This charger is amazing. Already received one in white as a gift and had to pass the aloha since they had the brown in shop. It’s the perfect size to sit on the night stand, be used as a catch all. As a bonus this review page wouldn’t let me paste until I stated the three magic words, size, bonus and style but just know it’s really nice and quality. Well worth your purchase!" —Nate S.

29. A sleek cordless stick vacuum so they don't have to lug around that clunky vacuum they've had since you were in high school. While we appreciate the nostalgia, we'll need them to upgrade to something light yet powerful.

the vacuum hanging on a wall
Robororock

Promising review: "The best product I have ever had! I highly recommend! It's lightweight; the body itself is only 3.2 pounds compared to 6.7 pounds for a Dyson V11. You can totally use it with one hand, and your arm won’t be sore after cleaning with it to be honest. The maximum suction is 160AW on Roborock compared to 185 AW. This slightly better suction power is beaten easily by the light weight of Roborock. There's a lock-on button; with it, you don’t need to keep holding the trigger to let the vacuum keep working, you just need to hold it. For Dyson, you must hold the power button all the time. I know it’s possible with some extra purchase like trigger lock; but you get it for FREE with Roborock. The magnetic dock just makes it super easy to keep all the different brushes ready to use any time, so there is no excuse to not use the best one for the specific task (whether you are cleaning the floor, the bedding, etc.). The flex tube coming along in the package for FREE is another plus! I used to pay extra money for it with Dyson. This flex tube can be super helpful when you are cleaning underneath your carpet, in the corner of the drawer, etc. And you get it for FREE! The dustbin and filters are washable so it’s got to be cleaner and more budget-friendly! (You have two for free in the package). And, it comes with dust bag support." —Sharon Luo

34. A makeup brush UV sanitizer to make disinfecting their fave makeup brushes so much easier. All they have to do is pop the brushes inside and press the bottom on top. Five minutes later they'll have germ-free brushes.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "This first caught my eyes when I saw how chic and cute it is. Then I found out it actually help sanitize makeup brushes! I wear makeup regularly, but to be honest, I don't clean my brushes frequently enough. I found it kind of frustrating to clean my brushes. Not sure why but it always takes a REALLY LONG TIME for my brushes to dry. This is such a lifesaver as I know I can sanitize my brushes every time I use them with just one click! I don't have to worry about skin issues caused by dirty brushes anymore! It also makes a really good/cute gift. Very happy with this purchase." —CMC

Promising review: "This is a hole in one for any scotch-drinking golfer. Comes in a really nice wooden box with the WMG logo. Size of chillers is slightly smaller than an actual golf ball (for those wondering). Two fit fine in a scotch glass. Got as a birthday gift and my hubby loved it!!" —Darice M.

36. A Hamilton Beach bread maker with the power to make bread, dough, cake, jam, and more. Parents who love to make their won bread will love it that much more with this bread maker acting is their own little kitchen helper.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "Purchased for my wife because she has a gluten sensitivity. We were buying frozen Udi's gluten-free at Costco but when they changed loaf sized I started looking elsewhere. I ended up ordering this bread maker, and so far we are very happy. We have both made a gluten-free loaf. Not only are they taller, resulting in larger slices for toast or sandwiches, but she's also very happy with the improved taste. She got me to try a slice and I have to say I was impressed too. We are so please with the machine that I'm planning on buying a second tray so I can make standard bread for myself, to make sure we don't cross contaminate." —Boise Idaho

"I bought this for my elderly father to play with, and he's having a ball. He makes bread two or three times a week." —Kathy D.

Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed, amazon.com

BuzzFeed Shopping writer Mallory Mower says: "This is honest and truly the best splurge I have ever made. It has massively upgraded the look in my living room. My husband loves the photography options, and I love all the classical paintings – as someone who loves changing up my decor, being able to update the display images has been so fun. The quality is fantastic while watching movies and TV...but I'm pretty sure I love it as a piece of art in my home even more."

40. Or, a leather weekender bag for your on-the-go parent who is home for the holidays for a short time before they have to jet out again.

Amazon

Promising review: "I got this bag for my grandson, who travels back and forth from college often, for Christmas. I was impressed with the leather when it first came and the different pockets. He loves it!!! It has been such a hit with others who travel to see us on the holidays; they wanted to know where I got it! It was just what my grandson wanted, and he plans to carry it for many years to come. I priced and searched out many duffels. This was the perfect choice for the price and quality. Thank you!" —Debra

41. A towel warmer because nothing screams luxury living like stepping out of a warm bath or shower and wrapping yourself up with a warm towel. Oh yes, they won't be able to look at a shower or tub without thinking of you, which could get weird, but think of it as a compliment.

Amazon

It fits about two towels (or even a towel and a robe or other fabric items) and has a 15-minute adjustable timer.

Promising review: "I bought one for myself, then bought several others as presents because it's so nice. It's fairly small and easy to find space for even in a small bathroom but is also big enough to hold two large towels at a time. There are a few small things to watch for: occasionally the on button takes a bit of finagling to work; it takes about eight minutes to hit 'maximum' towel warmth; if the lid is askew/not fully on the towel loses a lot of heat; there's a bit of a plastic odor that goes away after the first few uses. But if you're aware of those things it's super luxurious and worth every penny, having a super warm towel waiting for you counters all the misery of having to leave the shower in the winter. It also makes a great present, it's the kind of luxury item people don't normally think to get for themselves but makes life so much better. Anybody who says you can't buy happiness obviously hasn't bought a towel warmer." —Heather

42. An eye massager for those who live their lives glued to a screen. This eye massage plays music, gently blows air, heats up, and keeps the eyes relaxed after scrolling through hundreds of emails that they end up just marking as spam anyway.

the eye massager
Amazon

This eye massager has a built-in speaker and uses vibrations, heat treatments, and air pressure to gently massage your eyes while increasing circulation and relieving stress and tension. It also has a sleeping mode, massaging your eyes for 15 minutes to help you fall asleep. A full charge takes about three and a half hours.

Promising review: "I love this product. It has all the bells and whistles I was looking for in pain relief for dry eyes and tension. Since I am working from home and looking at a computer all day, I experience eye fatigue and tiredness since it’s very quiet. It massages my eyes. I have a small face and I feel the massages over my eyes. It reminds me of the lipiflow treatment at my eye doctors office. It relieves the pressure and burning sensations. There are five settings that you can adjust to your preferences. It lasts 15 minutes and the only suggestion is to use it when lying down like the other reviewers comments. It can be a little heavy on the bridge of your nose. The vibrating sound is a little loud but tolerable. Material is great and I use it three times a day. It helps with relaxation and revitalizes me. Buy it, you won’t be disappointed." —Jackie H

Amazon

Promising review: "Saw this on a Food Network show and decided to try! LOVE IT! Great honey taste with just a bit of heat at the end. My husband loves 'hot' foods and even grows his own peppers to put on anything. He really likes this on his French toast and I like it with peanut butter. However, I just made baked beans and added a tablespoon of this in addition to the brown sugar (reduced amount) and they were the BEST baked beans ever!" —Ritakc

Promising review: "We like to use fresh herbs in our cooking but when we buy them at the store, we usually end up using half the package and the rest go bad. This product has added a nice green element to our kitchen and a good amount of herbs to use. The plants sprouted and grew exactly as described in the instructions. We follow the directions and prune often and water and feed when the lights tell us to. It is really easy. We cut per the instructions and store the cuttings in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. It has also been fun to watch the process." —Amazon Customer

Promising review: "With the addition of Boveda humidity packs, this brilliant and versatile humidifier is my new favorite. I re-calibrated my hydrometer and popped it in this with a Bovida 69% humidity pack and it is spot-on. My temperature is pretty solid in the space where I keep my cigars and I have not seen any major swings in humidity. It's simple, useful, and a fantastic investment for keeping several cigars 'at the ready.'" —bearto

49. A black and gold cookware set with a nonstick ceramic design that's oven-safe up to 600 degrees. One glance at this elegant cookware set will make anyone want to throw their old collection away. And...they're dishwasher-safe!

The set includes a 2-quart saucepan with lid, a 6-quart stock pot with straining lid, an 8-quart stock pot with lid, an 8-inch and an 11-inch frying pan, and a 2.8-quart sauté pan with lid.

Promising review: "We've had these pans for a couple of months now and we love them. They look great, heat well, and are the most nonstick pans I've ever had. We did have a household discussion about not putting them over full heat, but other than that we don't baby them much, they go in the dishwasher with everything else (although they really don't need to, they wipe clean immediately). So far so good. I was worried that the gold might tarnish or get really fingerprinty, but it hasn't at all."—Ashley
