    A black air fryer with french fries in the basket

    Promising review: "I have precious little counter space in my little kitchen, but this has a permanent home! Chicken wings in the fryer are awesome. You can also make some awesome brats or dogs in it and get a nice crispy crunch to the skins. I've done a few roasted veggies that are awesome. The clean up on this one is so easy. You basically just rinse it out and dry it off." β€”Dingbatdinah

    Promising review: "I was skeptical as to whether or not my family would actually use this product, but we are totally sold! With five kids, getting a hot breakfast on the table is no easy feat, and the Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker makes it simple and easy. I'll be purchasing a second sandwich maker so we can speed things up even more." β€”Unsophisticook

    Price: $24.99 (originally $30; available in five colors)

    This comes equipped with a 60L CO2 cylinder and 1 kiter BPA-Free reusable carbonating bottle.

    Promising review: "This is the neatest machine. I never thought how convenient it is to be able to make my own sodas until I tried the Sodastream Fizzi Black Starter Kit. All you need is cold water and flavoring and you have soda without going out to buy it and carry home heavy cases of soda cans or big bottles of soda that go flat after you open them. I now have fresh soda anytime. Not to mention the storage space I am saving. I used to take up so much room in my refrigerator storing cans of soda. Now all I need is cold water and I have soda anytime." β€”ughhhhh

    A grated gray drying rack over a sink

    Promising review: "My mother purchased this item, and she loves it. This roll out drying rack works great. It fits over the sink perfectly and is very sturdy. It holds several pots or pans easily. The fact that all the water can drip right into the sink is great and saves time. It rolls up quickly and easily so that it can be stored out of the way after use. If you get it dirty, no problem as it is dishwasher safe so cleaning it is simple too." –Allen

    Price: $25.93

It is very light even holding almost 12 oz of water and has a no-slip grip handle area. It is ready to go within minutes and the steam is continuous. I got the wrinkles out of a dress in less than eight minutes. You can also steam out curtains for seasonal change or freshen up a dry clean only suit super fast without burning or ruining it." –jojorenee

    The white wire pieces in kitchen cabinets with dishes on them

    Promising review: "The last few weeks I've been going through drawers, cabinets, and closets, trying to declutter and reorganize. In doing so, I've realized that the common denominator between these spaces is a lack of room. The set is super functional, looks and feels great, requires zero assembly and truly gets the job done. At the price they are selling this set, I might actually buy one for all of my closets as well. Great buy! You will not be disappointed." –Brit

    Price: $24.93

    Promising review: "The Elite Gourmet 1L Electric Glass Water Kettle is fast and pretty to look at. It has a convenient wrap around chord hideaway underneath the base for easy storage. Pretty blue lights turn on when you press the start button. It has automatic shut-off so you don't have to worry about forgetting it. You do have to use cold water to start. From start to finish it takes about 5min and 23sec, according to my stop watch β€” and that's with a water level close to the max line." β€”WalmartCustomer

    Price: $18.99

    16. A simple but sleek-looking office desk with lots of surface area for you to finish that report for work, study for a big test, or finally write that novel you've been meaning to start for years.

    Model's hand holding a tubshroom entangled with hair

    Promising review: "I used to have a hair-catcher in my shower that did a good job but from time to time I still had to use a tool to remove the hair deep down in the drain. Not any more! This Shroom slips down inside and catches all of my hair. I remove it after every shower. When I want to take a bath, I pull out the Shroom and put the normal plug back in. Works great!" –Stevesgurl

    pink velvet desk chair with wheels and a gold base

    Promising review: "I spent way too long looking at pink chairs online. I decided on this one because of the price tag being less than almost all the other chairs I looked at, plus it looked soft and like a nice pink. It only took me like 10–15 minutes to assemble. All the pieces and tools are included (an allen wrench comes with for tightening the screws). I've been sitting in this chair every day for about seven hours a day for a week now. I honestly love it. It's a very soft velvet material, the pink color is super pretty and matches my other pink/blush office decor, and it's supportive. I sit on it all sorts of stupid ways (cross-legged, one foot up on it, kneeling, etc.) and it's comfy for me." β€”Brittany

    Price: $73 (available in two colors)

    23. A lightweight vacuum that can also be used handheld to clean up all of those hard-to-reach corners in your house.


    Promising review: "This Bissell Turbo Stick Vacuum is small in size, but not in power. Love the slim-line size, which makes it much easier to use and maneuver. It does a good job picking up dirt and debris as well as my large vacuum cleaner. Really love that it has the detachable hand vac feature, which allows me to use easier in my vehicle. Great product. Love it!" β€”SeniorDiamond

    dark wood cube storage organizer with decorative items in it

    Promising review: "The unit took me about two hours to assemble, but it was well worth the time invested. It looks upscale and more expensive than what it cost. Online shows pictures of it with optional baskets in each cubby, but I am using mine as a bookcase in my limited space living room. If I need to repurpose it, adding baskets is an easy, inexpensive fix to change it up. I am very pleased with this purchase!" β€”Melody

    Price: $87 (originally $109; available in three colors)

    29. A rolling hamper so you can easily move it from room to room to pick up everyone's dirty clothes. You can also remove the laundry bag from the stainless-steel exterior.

    stainless steel hamper on wheels with a white laundry bag inside of it

    Promising review: "This hamper is great! I was using ones before without wheels and just metal inserts to hold the hamper together. When I got this one, what a relief it is. It is sturdy and wheels so nicely so I don't have to lift anything. I ready in prior reviews that it came with no wheels. They are underneath the hamper itself so if you don't turn it over, you will not see them. I will be purchasing more to separate my laundry." β€”letsgohawksonegoal

    Price: $59.60

    30. A powerful floor fan just in case the air conditioner poops out and you need some air flow in your house or apartment.

    Price: $14.84

    Promising review: "I have walk-in showers in my home so finding something tall enough to go from floor to ceiling and enough tension to hold was a challenge. This worked perfectly. It's sturdy beautiful and easy to put together. I also like that is versatile with the adjustable shelves as well as being able to remove sections to make it shorter if needed." β€”DaffyB
