    Promising review: "It might sound silly but I’ve always wanted a coffee maker that can make coffee in the morning before I wake up. This one is the best! It’s super affordable, looks nice, easy as heck to clean, and it makes zero messes (my old one would leak when it was being made and when it was being poured). This is the best coffee maker for a reasonable price." —Shell

    Promising review: "The product is easy to use, although the device seems a little strange at first. Just read the directions and you will see how easy it actually is to place the gel dots on the toilet bowl. I always use three gel dots around the inside of the bowl. It makes the bathroom really fresh and clean. They last about two to three weeks, depending on how much the toilet is used. These really help keep the bowl clean and the entire bathroom smelling clean and fresh." —Gina R.

    These are biodegradable and odor-free.

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. A bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand-new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    5. A Wi-Fi-enabled automatic dog and cat feeder that'll take care of keeping your pets fed even when you aren't around.

    The automatic pet feeder

    It links to iPhones, Androids, and Alexa so you can make sure your pets get their food whether you're miles and miles away or just busy in the next room.

    Promising review: "Works great, and I cannot recommend this enough! My cats throw up if they eat too much, so it is great being able to feed them very small amounts (1/8 cup) per feeding, up to 12 times per day. I upgraded to this WiFi model from the non-Wi-fi model and it is quite nice having the option to feed them with a click of a button on my phone. I also bought the splitter adapter that will make it work for two cats. This is a great and inexpensive alternative to buying a second feeder for almost $200. My cats used to fight over the one food bowl, but now that I can have two separate bowls there is no more fighting!" –Beachbum

    Get it from Amazon for $169.95.

    6. A rapid egg cooker if you wanna take making breakfast off of your to-do list. This impressive lil' device can make hard boiled, soft boiled, poached, and scrambled eggs in just minutes! It can even make an omelet if you wanna feel fancy without the extra effort.

    The egg cooker surrounded by eggs

    Promising review: "This thing is NO JOKE the easiest thing I've ever used in my life. Pretty sure it's idiot-proof. And I'm an idiot in the kitchen. I love hard-boiled eggs, but I'm the kind of cooking-illiterate person who can't even boil water right. So I bought this puppy, read the directions carefully, got six eggs, and in 15 minutes, the buzzer went off and VOILA! Hard-boiled eggs! I put them all in a bowl of ice water right after the buzzer went off, just for a minute or two (That was a tip in the instructions). That really made the shells come off easily. In one piece even! It was a joy to make these! They were perfectly cooked, nice and yellow in the centers, tasted awesome. I'm gonna make a bunch more and use them as quick snacks. This appliance is so great and cheap! I couldn't believe how well it worked. It's really small and all the pieces are plastic or metal, but it works like a charm, so who cares! A+++++ Highly recommended." —Emily

    Get it from Amazon for $19.45+ (available in five colors).

    7. A wood polish that'll miraculously get rid of water stains, scratches, scuffs, dings, and other common wooden furniture afflictions. Just wipe it evenly on a wood surface, let it stand for at least 20 minutes, wipe off the excess, and watch those imperfections come RIGHT OUT.

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places. We also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were. Several other areas were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magical eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let is sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    Get it from Amazon for $13.93.

    8. A PhoneSoap smartphone sanitizer that'll simultaneously sanitize *and* charge your phone! Forget about trying to wipe down every crevice with different cleaners and anxiously wondering if they'll mess up your screen or seep into the headphone jack. Just set your phone in this case, and and the UV light will zap 99.99% of the uninvited germs clinging to your phone while the USB port gets you back to fully charged.

    A black square case (the size of a large tablet but way thicker) is sitting on a surface. It has a lid which is open. The case has a phone (looks like a droid) sitting inside of it with a blue screen.

    Promising review: "What a perfect gadget for getting your phone clean. After touching who knows what while commuting to work and it being that time of year everyone around you gets sick, this comes in handy. After the first use, it looked great and then I wiped it down with the sponge that came with it. I feel so much better about using my phone now." —Crystal Gardner

    Get it from Amazon for $84.35.

    9. An automatic laser cat toy for those moments when your cat has way more energy for fun and games than you do. This device will take over to keep your kitties occupied for long periods of time, and some pet owners even say their dogs are obsessed with it too!

    The laser cat toy

    Promising review: "This is a must-have for dogs and cats. My dog cries and begs to turn this on all day every day. Press the button once to start it with a solid light. Press it again to shut it off. Press the button again to turn it on with a blinking light. It zig-zags left to right and up and down. It randomly stops for a second every five seconds or so." –Jerry

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    10. Some no-wipe, no-scrub Wet & Forget shower cleaner that'll deal with scummy buildup and mildew so you don't have to. Just spray, rinse, and let it do the rest!


    Promising review: "Does a FANTASTIC job if used regularly. I love this product. I hate cleaning tubs. This product has made our tubs look new. I don't use it every shower...maybe every third. Just spray down everything after the shower, and forget about it. You DO need to rinse tub before next shower due to product making it slick. The fumes of other cleaners always messed with my asthma. I have noticed that for some reason with this one, I sneeze twice, because I have to spray shower doors while Im still in the shower...but it never affects my lungs. I would recommend this to EVERYONE!" —Angela GIllaird

    Get enough to last 12 weeks from Amazon for $17.97.

    11. A garbage disposal cleaner that'll bubble and fizz through the odor-causing grime all on its own, while you just stand back and wish you'd gotten it sooner.

    Here's all you have to you do: Run some hot water, pop one of the packets in your disposer, let it foam, then wait for the foam to fully disappear. Garbage disposer = clean and odor-free.

    Promising review: "Works like a charm! These are pretty cool! I was a little skeptical but I followed the easy-to-use directions and it worked just like the product said it would. Foamed up and cleaned the drain!! Smell removed!!" —Jennifer K

    Get two packs of four from Amazon for $10.46.

    Promising review: "I bought my fruit on Friday and ordered this immediately because I’m so sick of throwing my fruit away if I don’t eat it in a few days. It’s been a WEEK now and my strawberries, pineapple, and blueberries, (all in this one big container), are STILL FRESH! I’m going to start buying more fresh fruit now that I know it won’t be wasted and thrown away in a few days. Highly recommend this product if you’re like me and can’t eat a whole pineapple, strawberries, and other fruit fast!" —Sarah

Just pop one of these tabs in, run it through a cycle, and that's it. Now your dishes'll come out sparkling and any odor emanating from your machine will be long gone!

    Reviewer photo showing a cup and silverware before and after using the cleaning tablets

    These tablets are designed to penetrate, dissolve, and remove odor-causing residue that accumulates inside your dishwasher over time, as well as remove lime and mineral build-up. Using Affresh tablets once a month can prolong the life of your dishwasher and make it more effective at doing its job: cleaning your dishes.

    Promising review: "Works extremely well. We haven't done any cleaning on our dishwasher in five years, and the sliding dish trays were tough to pull out or push in, there was detergent build up all over the inside, and there was a milky film on all our cups. I bought Affresh, ran the dishwasher with two tablets while it was empty, and the difference was astounding. There was still some build up and I figured it would require another cycle, so I popped another two tablets in, ran the machine a second time, and now it looks and sounds brand new. No more film on the glasses, no more dirty dishes from clogged sprayers, no more odors, or build up around the door seals. I'm going to be buying Affresh from now on, and hopefully it will extend the life of my dishwasher." —Martoune

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    14. And some washing machine cleaning tablets you just have to run through a cycle to clean your machine and keep your clothes smelling fresh. Easy peasy!


    Promising review: "I purchased with skepticism, but after using them I am pleasantly surprised. I LOVE this product!! Our laundry used to come out smelling WORSE than before I washed it. I thought I needed to buy a new washing machine. NO!!! I used two tabs initially (two different wash cycles), then use one a month for maintenance. My clothes always come out smelling fresh and clean! What a miracle, money-saving product. Only wish I’d known about them sooner!" —Ashley

    15. Some colorful glass bulbs that can take over the plant watering duties if you're terrible at knowing when you're over or under-watering your green friends. They'll slowly add life-giving H20 to the soil over time so the plants get exactly as much as they need!

    glass bulb filled with water with long stem that is placed in soil of plant

    Promising review: "I have been trying to grow hydrangeas for years. I’ve killed every hydrangea I’ve brought home up until now. In fact these watering globes are the only thing keeping my hydrangeas alive and they’re flourishing! Also I killed a fiddle-leaf fig tree, exchanged it for a new one and again this system is what’s making it flourish! I just check to make sure the bulbs aren’t empty and refill when needed. I’m using two outside and one indoor. Will definitely be buying more!" —T. Dhont

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $14.99.

    16. A spinning makeup brush cleaner that swirls your brushes in soapy water until leftover makeup, dead skin cells, dirt, and debris are gone, and then spins the brush until it's dry. All you've gotta do is hold the brush! Plus, not only does it do an amazing job of getting brushes clean, but it does it soooo quickly too.


    It comes with the brush spinner, charging station, eight rubber collars that securely connect the makeup brush to the spinner, a glass bowl, and a splash guard ring.

    Promising review: "I use my makeup brushes daily, and they get filthy. I've used other cleaners and this product wins hands down. The wand and the cleaner itself takes all the hard work and does it for you, not to mention the the brushes dry in seconds. This is the cleanest my brushes have ever been. Highly recommend." —Valerie

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    Promising review: "My mini iPad fits perfectly, both vertically and horizontally. (I need to remove my case first, but that is not a big deal.) What a pleasure to NOT have to hold it in my hands or lean it awkwardly against an object at eye level, especially for long Zoom calls. This is definitely my most worthwhile purchase of the year!" —Robin

    Promising review: "I'm embarrassed to say I hadn't cleaned my microwave in about six months. It's an awful task. I ran Angry Mama one time, wiped down easily, then ran it one more time to get it detailed really clean.

    Promising review: "OK... So I have to do a little review on this product BECAUSE I have had a stopped-up kitchen sink and have LITERALLY tried EVERYTHING down to the industrial products with NO luck. I decided to go on Amazon and read a few reviews. This is the one I decided to go with. I only used one chamber, let it sit for an hour, and then used boiling water. My sink is NO LONGER stopped up!!! I saved a plumber bill and this was $11.97. HUGE win for this woman!!" —Tabpeach

    22. An automatic pan stirrer with a built-in timer that'll take over at the stove so you can shift your attention to prepping other ingredients, making a cocktail, or doing...literally anything else.

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "My husband loves to cook. We have two very small children, so while his meals are mostly yummy, they are also sometimes burnt. This was perfect for him. He's able to turn it on, run into the next room save the day with a plastic bag and a washcloth for whatever blowout-esque mess I'm dealing with, forget he's cooking, run back into the kitchen frantically when he remembers, and arrive only to find the meal practically cooking itself. Best. Gift. Ever." —Jake the ChefturnedDaddy

    23. Or a hands-free pot stirrer because spending a half hour stirring a pot of soup doesn't sound like the best use of your time when you could just let this magic device take over.

It can clean continuously for up to 100 minutes.

    Promising review: "We are very pleased with our Eufy who we named Sneaky Pete because he is very quiet and can sneak up on you. We run him twice a day and are always surprised how much grime and pet hair he picks up. The instructions are simple and clear. Cleaning is super easy. He travels under beds and couches where we would not normally be able to reach with the traditional vacuum. After comparing all of the leading robo-vacs, we chose the Eufy because it was rated as high as expensive ones and was less than half of the cost. We chose well. Like all robo-vacs, Pete will become confused on an area that is black due to the anti-fall safety feature. Like a black patch of a rug. But, we don't hold that against him. Our dog is totally indifferent to Pete which is another pleasant surprise. We are very happy with our Eufy." —Dahna Brinkley

    Promising review: "I have an older pug and he has always been good, but I knew one day this machine would be brought out. I had it nine months before my first use. He got sick one week, and I literally used the machine about 12 times in a week. All I can say is Bissell knocked it our of the park with this. It’s amazing. It cleans so well. It is the simplest machine I have ever used that does so much. It is well designed. Quick setup. And clean up. It does all the work for you. And it does a fantastic job. I love it. Worth every penny. I’ll never be without one. If you are on the fence, buy it. I can’t believe how good this machine works. And the design is flawless. The tanks are so easy to fill. And clean for storage. And if it can clean 100% of what we had this week. It can clean anything!!! Like it never even happened. Thank you Bissell!!!" —David

And after a long day at work when I am craving pasta, all I want to do is eat right away. This pasta cooker cooked pasta better than I have ever cooked pasta in my life. I am Italian, so as you can imagine I have eaten (and made myself) a LOT of pasta. This product is a game changer. It was extremely easy to use, cooked quickly, and it came out PERFECTLY. Not over cooked, a little al dente, but not firm. Perfection. Now I have no excuse not to cook pasta for myself (and my husband) practically every day. BUY THIS. It will change your life." —Hope Lanza

It also has a handy built-in scale, which is super useful when a recipe calls for grams and the American education system once again fails me. On top of doing everything your old pressure cooker could do plus a whole heck of a lot more, my CHEF iQ Smart Cooker just looks a lot sleeker, meaning I can leave it out on the counter without it being an eyesore." —Melanie Aman, BuzzFeed Staff
