I was unable to wash off the marks. In addition, I noticed fingerprint marks almost every time I opened the refrigerator which, for the most part, would not come off. I used this on the refrigerator as soon as it arrived and was amazed at how easily the marks came off. Extra bonus: No new fingerprints since my first application a week ago! It really works!" —J.

instagram.com, amazon.com

Features: self-cleaning 64-ounce container, radial cooling fan and thermal protection system, stainless-steel blades, easily-adjusted speeds

Promising review: "This isn't just a blender. That's what you have to tell yourself to actually spend the money on one of these things. I know there is that age old debate about Vitamix vs Blendtech but I've never tried a Blendtech because our Vitamix has been a work horse for years of daily use and still keeps going! It's what my parents had, it's what everyone in my family has, and they all love it as much as we do. Our 3-year-old son has autism and severe sensory issues making him the pickiest eater on the face of the planet. That being said, he will drink just about anything we put in his cup as long as it passes the look, smell, and texture tests. If it weren't for the Vitamix I don't know how we would've fed our child and made sure he got the protein, fresh fruits, and vegetables etc. that his little growing mind and body need. We can sneak ANYTHING into his smoothies and he has no idea because the Vitamix works so incredibly well at blending everything flawlessly. No chunks, no pulp, no fuss! Smooth and creamy and delicious no matter what we throw in there!" —Kate Mahoney

18. A 3.4 quart air fryer for anyone who wants to enjoy French fries, crispy chicken wings, and even pizza with little to no oil needed! This device circulates hot air around your food to give it the perfect fried texture.

amazon.com

Features: 60 minute cooking timer with auto-shut off when your food is done; heating and power indicator lights, variable temperature control

Promising review: "First time using it I was a little skeptical and not sure what I was doing. So, I first tried something easy. Sweet potato fries, how hard could that be. Well, not only was it easy to do, but the results were beyond my expectations. Truly did last and feel like deep fried potatoes. Then I did a Cornish hen. Never cooked one in my life, so again I wasn't sure. Followed the instructions in a recipe book I purchased and success, again! Then I said, OK lets try a pizza. Within 10 minutes prep, and 12 minutes cooking I had a great pizza for two. So then I figured lets break the winning streak with an experiment. I purchased a 5lb. frozen turkey breast. I let it thaw, brushed some lite oil mixed with spices on the bird and placed it in the basket. The only problem was the bird was a little too fat and wouldn't let me close the basket without cutting about an inch off the breast. Once I did that, away she went and about 55 minutes later I had the most delicious, tender and moist turkey dinner. This bird was enough for 4+ adults. Overall I find this style of cooking the easiest and cleanup is a breeze. I love this thing. Best appliance I've ever purchased." —Ajdg
