    A ten-speed blender that create delicious smoothies, cocktails, and more

    Promising review: "I wanted to be out of the honeymoon period with this blender before writing the review (I purchased a Ninja two years ago, wrote it a fantastic review, and it ended up being chintzy, and Target does not allow you to edit your reviews). I've had the Vitamix for about two and half months now, and I make smoothies every day for breakfast. It's powerful and blends very quickly. I almost never have to scrape down the sides. As far cleanup, the manufacturer recommends running the blender with warm water and a drop of dish soap for a minute and it works like a charm. I have not tried to do anything fancy like soups or bread, but it definitely works great for smoothies. If you're on the fence between a Vitamix and a Ninja, pay the extra money for the Vitamix. The quality of the product is many times over better. It's faster, easier to clean, and blends better."—Target Customer

    Price: $449.95

    Promising review: “I’ve been looking for a set of containers that are truly air tight and very durable, I purchased these back in July and six months in they are going strong. I use the containers for flour, sugar, and pasta (think elbows or spirals). The flour and sugar containers are used weekly for baking and they haven’t shown any signs of wear/tear and the lids are still air tight. The crystal clear color is also nice and kinda reminds me of how The Home Edit does their styling. If you’re on the fence, I say go for it!” —Target Customer

    Price: $37.99

    12. A smart-stainless steel coffee maker which brings the coffee shop to your home, especially if you are trying to cut down on those daily (but costly!) Iced Americano runs.

    The coffee maker

    Promising review: “I love, love this coffee maker. Takes zero time to warm up, is super quiet and allows me to save three settings that includes my size, strength and temperature preference. The water chamber as a pitcher makes it very easy to refill as well.”—Target Customer

I have some other Magnolia kitchen pieces - the ceramic measuring cups, both tall and smaller ones which already accent my kitchen - and this plaque stands out against the gold-painted wall it hangs on.

    Promising review: “Brilliant little trash can. If you open via pedal, the lid will quietly close when you release your foot (for quickly tossing something).

Price is good, easy to use (just push the lever down to turn it on) and it will turn off when it's reached the boiling point. I am a big tea drinker and other kettles have precise temperature settings for different teas (green, black, etc.) which can be nice if that is something you really want. But it heats up so fast, all you need to do is watch it heat up and you can turn it off when it's reached the stage you want.”—Target Customer

    Price: $34.99

    28. A handheld food sealer vacuum, because there’s nothing worse than wasting your hard-earned money on food that spoils.
