air fryer so you can grill, bake, roast, or fry all of your favorite recipes in a much faster and more convenient way.
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." – Dingbatdinah

breakfast sandwich maker that creates Egg McMuffin-style sandwiches in five minutes or less. No need to head to the drive-thru the next time a craving hits!
An old roommate of mine had one of these, and it made Saturday morning breakfast so much more fun! It cooks the eggs perfectly, and it's very easy to wash.
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." – Unsophisticook

This comes equipped with two BPA-free bottles and two fruit drops as well.
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." – ughhhhh

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
organizing set that will help you take advantage of every inch of valuable cabinet space.
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

office chair option if you're looking to channel some Miranda Priestly vibes during your work day. That's all.
Promising review: "Arrived on time and the package was nicely done. The chair came with clear instructions and put together in 15 minutes. It is so comfortable and doesn't absorb color from clothing. Often times if you order white chairs you cannot sit on them if you are wearing jeans because the dye will rub on the material. That is not the case here!" – Raghed
