    35 Things Reviewers Said Were The Best Thing They Bought All Year

    ...Or even longer.

Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A Luminoodle — an LED lighting strip you can affix to the back of your TV for a backlighting effect that'll create sharper images, increase color contrast, and reduce eye strain.

    A reviewer's before/after: the TV without backlighting looking harsh with less defined colors, the TV with backlighting is easier to look at with more vibrant colors
    amazon.com

    Promising reviews: "You will be surprised how well this works. I though it was a gimmick — but then read several articles about the benefits of bias lighting and though I would give it a try. Setting it up takes about five minutes — very simple. The surprise comes when you turn on the TV with the bias lighting and the picture POPS! The contrast and the black level jumps and the picture looks significantly improved! It supposedly relieves eye strain but I have never really had a problem with that so I can't comment on that." —Rgd18

    "THE BEST MONEY EVER SPENT!!! JUST GET IT!!!" —saylthecell

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in four sizes).

    2. An air fryer so you can reheat leftovers (no more soggy fries!!!!!!!!) and whip up your favorite crunchy foods (hello wings!) with little... or NO... added oil. It circulates air to create a perfectly browned exterior, without the danger of a giant pot of hot oil.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This particular model comes with a rack, nonstick baking dish, and a cookbook with 52 pages of recipes to get you started.

    Promising review: "Probably the best thing I have ever bought! I use this air fryer everyday. I don't even heat leftovers in the microwave anymore. This machine heats or cooks you food quickly and keeps foods crispy and meats moist. I love my air fryer! I don't know how I lived without it in my life for all these years." —jessie yauch

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99+ (available in two colors).

    3. A foldable exercise bike with all the basic features you need if you don't have space or budget for a Peloton but want access to a quick cardio workout at home. It has a magnetic tension system to up the difficulty, and handy features on the screen so you can track your time, speed, distance, and more!

    The silvery bike, with text "Men's Health editor's choice" larger seat cushion, 300 pound extended weight capacity
    Amazon

    Promising review: "The day I put a COVID-19 suspension on my gym membership, I researched affordable, maneuverable exercise bikes lest my knees get painful for lack of this daily exercise! It arrived in a large box (40 lbs) but this 70-year-old gal was able to easily drag into my house and unpack. The directions are a little hard to follow and I’m not 'handy' but I was able to add a little reasoning and put it together in less than an hour. Now sheltering in place for two weeks, this bike starts my day each morning. The mechanics and electronics work perfectly and help me set goals each day. It has variable tension settings, seat height options and a seat position for tall and for shorter people. I’m 5-foot-6 and selected the setting for a taller person. The seat height is on the fourth hole so you could drop for shorter biker. I have biked and binge-watched series, biked and worked off creeping anxiety as I watch the news and rolled it onto the deck on an unseasonably warm day to peddle to Led Zeppelin on my headphones. BEST purchase for the money that I’ve made in years; it’s a solid investment in both my physical and mental health!" —SG

    Get it from Amazon for $185.82.

    I bought this bike just as the pandemic was starting this spring, and it was a *great* choice. I put it together in nooooo time flat, with the help of a handy YouTube video (as suggested by one of the reviewers). And the fold-up size is great, but the bike is sturdy and has great features for the price! I love the cushioned seat, which is muuuuuch comfier than most exercise bike seats I've sat on.

    4. The most recent version (it has a built-in light now!!) of the original basic Kindle so you can *instantly download* your next read — either from the Kindle store or from your local library's selection of ebooks. No waiting.

    The Kindle in black with text "holds thousands of books"
    Amazon

    It's glare-free, and has an adjustable front light so you can read in ANY lighting condition — including outside and in the dark!

    Promising review: "I love reading. But I've always considered myself as a paper books person. I've started reading electronic books many times, but almost always failed to read them till the end, and I never had this problem with real, physical books. It was especially noticeable when I started to read only in English (which is not my native language): it was ways harder to read from the screen (or so I thought). I bought a Kindle because at some point I couldn't have my paper books with me (because they are bulky and heavy), my friend recommended it to me, and because I already had a bunch of Kindle books bought in a hope to read them someday. And that drastically changed my perception of the electronic books, because:

    - the screen and built in light is very comfortable for the eyes

    - It is very light and easy to hold in any weird position I read

    - it fits in almost all pockets in my jackets (wow)

    - most important for me: no distractions. Ever. Just me and the book. I could leave my phone at home and just head to the park or to the beach to read, and read only.

    And somehow the combination of those factors helped me fall in love with electronic books. Since I spend a lot of time in European countries which languages I don't speak, now I don't have to bring a pack of books with me everywhere. So I would really name it best purchase I made, for years." —Elena

    As a personal note, I love my Kindle SO MUCH, and would definitely consider it the best purchase I made that year. I get books immediately downloaded from the library, and I bring it with me *everywhere* I go. I'm literally reading 10 times as many books a year as I was pre-Kindle.

    PSST! Right now, for the same price, you get three months of Kindle Unlimited included!

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99 (available in black and white, and with or without special offers).

    5. A weighted blanket reviewers swear by to help with anxiety, stress, and insomnia. The just-heavy-enough pressure can help you relax and feel comforted enough to drift off.

    Model cuddled up under a striped weighted blanket
    Amazon

    It's available in three sizes and and 10 weights, so whether you're looking for one for a kid, for yourself, or to use in a king or queen-sized bed with your partner, there's an option for you!

    Promising review: "This is the BEST purchase I have ever made. I have been an insomniac for years and have never successfully been treated. Even with many doctors' appointments and medications — NOTHING worked! On top of that I have RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome). I thought I would give this blanket a try. This product is not advertised for RLS but it absolutely should be! I have had my blanket for three days and I have been basically sleeping in a coma-like state!!! It is the soundest and best sleep I have ever had in my life. And the comforting weight on my legs and boy just eases those RLS symptoms and drifts me off to a sound sleep!!! It is so hard to describe the feeling of peace and comfort the minute you lay it on your body. I actually ordered the 15-pound blanket for my weight and height because I wanted the extra weight just in case. I decided to go ahead an order a second one if I have an emergency situation and need even more weight on my legs. This product is phenomenal to say the least!!!" —DeAnn Barksdale

    Get it from Amazon for $42.41+ (available in six colors and prints).

    6. Frank Body's original coffee scrub with an exfoliating blend of coffee grinds (duh), sea salt, sweet almond oil, and vitamin E to soften skin and help fight breakouts without over-drying or feeling too harsh.

    The pouch of scrub, plus a pile of the coarse brown scrub
    Frank Body

    Promising review: "Best product I’ve bought! Literally my go-to for everything, I struggle with really bad psoriasis and the coffee body scrub gets rid of it every single time without fail and leaves my skin so soft and glowing, no product I’d ever recommend over this one! Have bought this so many times over the past few years and has never let me down! :)" —Leah M.

    Get it from Frank Body for $16.95 or Amazon for $16.95.

    Frank Body is a woman co-owned company based in Melbourne, Australia — and all of their products are made there too!

    7. A microwave popper so you can buy your kernels in bulk (no annoying little bags!) and top your popcorn with WHATEVER you choose — no oil required, if you don't want to add it!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Purchase now. Don’t wait. Used this last night. OMG easy peasy. Loved the popcorn. Used a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper in the mix. Voila: not one left unpopped. Best thing I bought so far this year." —Amy A

    Get it from Amazon for $15.90 (available in ten colors).

    8. A salad chopper and bowl guaranteed to change your salad game as you know it; just toss in your greens and veggies, run your round cutter through it, and you're good to go.

    Hand rolling the chopper (it's like a rolling double pizza cutter) over a salad in a bowl
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Best purchase of the year! This product is so simple and yet it is life-changing for my salad-making! One of the main reasons I never made salads at home was because it was so hard to chop the lettuce. This product makes it so easy and only takes a second to chop your whole salad so you don’t get stuck with awkwardly large pieces of lettuce." —Katie

    Get the chopper and bowl set from Amazon for $25.99.

    9. A giant bubble-making kit so the whole fam can enjoy a magical backyard activity with surprising ease — and take plenty of photos.

    A reviewer using the kit to make a giant, long bubble
    amazon.com

    The kit comes with a wand, a pouch of bubble-making concentrate, and a tips & tricks booklet.

    Promising review: "I've been looking for ways to cheer up my daughter during this shelter in place so I gave this a shot. The second she saw those giant bubbles her face just lit up. Not only are the bubbles huge but they fly pretty well. The kids in the next apartment complex were giggling as the two-foot bubbles flew over the fence. I am going to need a lot more bubble solution! Best purchase of the year." —Emily B

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in three kit sizes).

    10. An avocado tool to add some of that green goodness to every meal and help you eat guacamole guaca-more — no struggling or accidentally cutting yourself trying to get that pit out.

    The tool in front of a bowl of guacamole
    AMazon

    It'll slice open the fruit, painlessly (aka no knife needed) pop out the pit, and create perfectly Instagrammable slices.

    Promising review: "I thought this was a unitasker, but it isn't at all! I eat avocado daily and this thing saves me from having to use three utensils. I finally gave in and bought it after I was trying to remove a pit and cut my hand. It was the last cut! Best purchase I made this year. Do your hands a favor and get two of these if you eat 'cados frequently like me." —JR

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    11. A handheld electric milk frother so you don't *have* to leave your home to enjoy a fabulous cafe-quality latte or cappuccino. It even works on iced bevvies — hello dalgona coffee!

    amazon.com

    It's battery operated — just run it in some soapy water for an easy cleaning.

    Promising review: "Best thing I’ve ever bought. I kid you not. I use this everyday to make my matcha drinks. It is a lifesaver and saves you so much time. Don’t think you’re lazy for buying it because it’s so worth the money I promise you." —Neg neg

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in two colors).

    12. A pair of bag-carrying handles if making trip...after trip...after trip...carrying the groceries home is just not working for you. Want to carry ALL the bags at once (without hurting your hands)? These'll do the trick.

    Two people carrying several bags in each hand hung on the blue handles
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Best purchase in 20 years. Yes, I'm one of those people who want to make one trip and one trip only from the car. These handles have been my salvation. I've carried light bags, heavy bags, even hot soup! I've told all my neighbors!!!" —Susan M. Bulavinetz

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.95.

    13. A fancy-schmancy single-blade razor that glides evenly with yours skin to ensure minimal razor burn and ingrown hairs. Plus, you can use it foreeeevveerrrrr with replacement blades and reduce your plastic use!

    Model using the razor on their armpit
    Oui the People

    Promising reviews: "Best purchase I've made in a looonnng time! So happy!" —Brianna Shea

    "My first time using the Oui Razor, I got the closest shave I’ve ever experienced. I have super sensitive skin, and am very prone to razor burn, but this razor, paired with the shave gel, made my legs feel like they had been waxed, and I got NO razor burn! I love this razor!" —Jamie

    A reviewer wearing a black lace bandelette under a dress
    amazon.com

    They're also available in plain (non-lace) versions!

    Promising review: "I never write product reviews but these are life-changing! I’ve battled chafing for years, not being able to wear dresses two days in a row because the irritation was that bad. After trying every trick in the book, I came across an ad for Bandalettes and figured, OK why not. I did not expect them to work as wonderfully as they did! I have worn them for full days and not only did they solve my chafing issue, but they did not budge a single bit. The best money I ever spent. If you measure your thighs these are very true to size. I ordered a C and wear 8/10 pants and they were perfect." —Trish

    Get them from Amazon for $18.95+ (available in seven sizes ranging from 21" to 32" and 12 colors and styles).

    For more glowing reviews, check out our closer look at Bandalettes!

    15. A seven-in-one Instant Pot you've probably heard a lot about — for a good reason. Or rather seven good reasons: It'll slow cook, pressure cook, make rice, sauté, make yogurt, and keep food warm. Bye-bye other appliances!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing changed my life. It makes dinner prep so much easier. I’m lazy, I admit. I hate cooking, but I’ve got a husband and a kid and I don’t want my son just eating frozen prepared food. So far I’ve made: beef stew, coconut chicken, Moroccan chicken stew, curry chicken, pulled pork, corned beef and cabbage, chicken noodle soup, black beans from dried (the BEST black beans with chipotle in adobo, green chili’s, etc), vegetable stock, shiitake and asparagus risotto, white bean and kale soup, and more! Admittedly, I was intimidated at first to buy this, it looks crazy complicated. Plus, I already had a slow cooker. I’m so glad I bought it. It was easy to use and cleanup was fast and simple. There’s a reason so many of these have been sold, it’s simply awesome! The best money I’ve ever spent." —RtisticFX

    Get a six-quart Instant Pot from Amazon for $79 (also available in three-quart and eight-quart sizes).

    16. A pet hair-removing roller with a patented brush design (and *no* adhesive strips) to rid your lovely black sofa of all your furry friend's shedding in a quick roll — so you can get back to cuddling together.

    youtube.com

    Promising review: "I don't usually write reviews, but if I could buy stock in the ChomChom I would! This is incredible. I immediately started using it on blankets, cat tree, towels that the cats lay on, bed skirt, every cloth or soft surface that the cats touch and TONS of fur started coming off! It's simple and easy, no sticky paper that barely does anything. The design is ingenious! It's a roller that goes back and forth about a one-quarter turn, so you have to go one direction, then back, and that simple motion not only picks up ALL the hair, but then removes it from the outer part of the roller and deposits it in the interior. When you open the back to reveal the interior, there's all the hair all bunched up! Like freakin' magic! I cannot wait to start cleaning every surface again once I finally cleaned it once. Allergies were going nuts and after picking up all this dust and fur I'm hopeful that will go a long way to feel better. Best product I've bought in years, I cannot believe that the reviews were so darn accurate! Get! This! Product!" —Joshua A. Flanders

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    17. A motion-detecting toilet light that'll glow any of 16 colors — so you don't miss the bowl no matter what, trip over cords in the dark, stub your toe, or make another 3 a.m. bathroom trip mishap.

    A collage of a toilet glowing all the different colors
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Since this is a ridiculous product that I have come to LOVE, I think this review should reflect how fun this product is. This was definitely a 'one too many glasses of wine during quarantine' product purchase, but is the best thing I have gotten this year! Not only is it extremely useful when I need to go to the bathroom at night, but it is also fun. The light changing function makes it as if you're at a rave while you pee. 10/10 recommend. Also- it's not expensive! Will purchase again for sure!" —Katelynn Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    18. A quick and easy breakfast sandwich maker so you can enjoy a hot and satisfying brekkie without having to go out — or shelling out those extra bucks.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    It'll cook eggs, veggies, meats, and toast up English muffins, biscuits, and even small bagels. It comes with a recipe book with ideas, and you can TOSS THE REMOVABLE PARTS IN THE DISHWASHER! Breakfast is ready in five!

    Promising review: "Easily the best purchase I made all year. It does help to let the egg cook for two minutes or so until it’s slightly firm on top so it doesn’t sink into the bread! Comes apart to clean in two seconds flat. I get up at 3:45 a.m. for work and would have laughed at the idea of making a hot breakfast before I got this. It literally takes me five minutes and I’m out the door!" —KB

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in three colors, plus a double sandwich maker).

    19. A Squatty Potty for anyone who can't just SIT AROUND all day on the toilet, waiting to poop and reading the back of their shampoo bottle. You now have 20 minutes back in your day.

    The white Squatty Potty u-shaped stool in front of a toilet
    Amazon

    If you somehow still don't know what a Squatty Potty is, it's a toilet stool that keeps your feet raised while pooping. ~Going~ in this position is supposed to fully relax your Puborectalis muscle, meaning you have an easier elimination, with no straining. And if you think that's TMI, just try it and see.

    Promising review: "I'm a 28-year-old man and I don't mean to brag or anything, but I've been pooping on my own for — like — nearly the majority of my adulthood... so when I tell you that this is the single most revolutionary experience I've had as far as my bowel movements go, I think you'll trust that this is a pretty big deal. Quicker, more pleasant movements, easy to store, easy to use. The best product I've bought in years. You know you're going to buy this. Just do it." —Heinyken

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    If you want a ~prettier~ one for your bathroom, Squatty Potty also makes a teak wood version ($56.63) and a ~ghost~ clear acrylic one ($77.40).

    20. A Revlon one-step drying brush with a unique oval-shaped barrel so you can get super close to your scalp for smooth hair and majorly boosted volume at the roots, without having to juggle a brush and blow-dryer.

    A before/after of a reviewer with wet, wavy hair, and then a sleek but voluminous blowout
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Holy smokes!!! This is the best buy of my entire year! I am terribly at doing my hair and traditionally make a weekly dry bar trip where they said they were coming out with their version of this brush. It’s $150 which is insane. This one — much more reasonably priced is perfect. It takes me an hour between drying and straightening and this took 17 minutes and was completely straight. Did you read that. 17 minutes. I now have time to read a bit in the morning before I head out (or sleep in!). This is a perfect daily use tool. Highly recommend ditching the hair dryer and giving this a go." —Jren

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in three colors).

    21. A Shiatsu shoulder massager you can use to relax overworked muscles after hunching over a computer all day. Plus, it has an optional heat setting for even more pain relief. It's like having a portable spa!

    Reviewer with the massager on their shoulders
    amazon.com

    You can use it on your lower back and legs too!

    Promising review: "OMG!!! I have been having neck pain for months, a friend received the foot massager for a present and that felt great! I saw this and read the reviews, all positive! The minute I put it on my neck I threw my eyes to the back of my head... I've used it on my back, legs, and arms, and its felt great in each place. I think my son is trying to steal it from me! If you pull too hard on the arm openings, (for more pressure) the motor will stop; let up and it'll be fine. If you hold it a bit looser the motor allows the balls to walk itself up & down your body. This is one of, if not THE BEST purchase this year!!" —Gemini Royal

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    22. A Philips alarm clock that simulates sunrise so you wake up more naturally — aka more rarin' to go, less groggy, and ready to hit the day running.

    A model in bed with the clock glowing warm, sunny light
    Amazon

    It has 20 brightness settings that slowly increase over 30 minutes so you rise ~with the sun~, feeling energized and ready for the day. Once it's at full brightness, only *then* will the alarm sound go off. AAAAANNNNDDD it has a *reverse* sunset mode that slowly fades away, while you fade out of consciousness yourself.

    Promising review: "I used to have such issues waking up. Sleeping through alarms that would wake up neighbors in the next apartment but not me. This is the only alarm/wake up remedy that has worked out of a baker's dozen. I wake up and feel excited that I've worked up for class on time and when you live in sub-freezing temperatures that is something that is rare. If you're on the fence do it. It's the best buy I've made in years." —Andy Anderson

    Get it from Amazon for $169.

    23. A set of three scrubbing attachments you can simply add to any power drill to make cleaning your tub, floor, appliances, or even the wheels of your car ridiculously fast and easy.

    Top: A review photo of a dirty, stained; tub bottom: The after of the same tub, which is sparkling white
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I constantly have to pester the hubby to help with cleaning the bathroom. Then I bought this and he’s like Tim 'the tool man' Taylor. I guess he just needed more power??? He cleans the bathroom without even being asked because he likes the drill brushes. They work well. The grout lines are clean. It doesn’t take him long. Best money I've ever spent! LOL." —Heather N

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in six colors).

    24. A super bitter-tasting clear polish that'll help you finally quit that nail-biting habit so your fingernails can grow long and strong. Time to treat yourself to an at-home manicure!

    Left: A reviewer's hand with bitten-down short nails on 8/20/2017; right: the same hand with slightly grown-out nails on 10/16/2017
    amazon.com

    It's totally harmless *and* shine-free, so it won't look like anything's on your nails. It's also great to help kids stop sucking on their thumbs.

    Promising review: "My 4-year-old daughter has been sucking her thumb before she turned 1. I didn’t know any effective way to stop her from sucking her thumb and our pediatrician couldn’t offer any solution, either. I happened to read about this product one day and decided to give it a try. We applied the nail polish once a week for three weeks in a row. She has now stopped her thumb sucking completely. The first two weeks she seemed a bit more fussy and insecure but she is a changed person now. I highly recommend it. The best money I’ve ever spent!!!" —CLW

    Get it from Amazon for $15.50.

    25. A pair of leakproof trunks with a floating absorbent gusset (with space for pad wings!) to keep you dry and comfortable, whether you're using them as backup protection or full coverage.

    The black trunks with logo waistband
    TomboyX

    Promising review: "BEST PURCHASE I'VE EVER MADE, PROBABLY. I bought this underwear the day it was released. I don't usually buy anything off clearance, but I made an exception for period-proof underwear that isn't panties/briefs. I figured these would be worth $30 apiece for being a shape that won't set off my brain's gender alarms. These are so much nicer even than just that. I no longer get pad wedgies. My reusable fabric pads no longer slide around randomly (the floating gusset holds everything in place nicely). The gusset doesn't get twisted, doesn't chafe, nothing like that. Everything stays exactly where I need it to be, even when I'm asleep. The only downside -- the fabric is a little thinner than I expected. I'd only ordered bras from TomboyX before, so I didn't realize how lightweight the underwear is. It's comfortable and it's fully opaque, so it's not really an issue, just an observation. Time will tell how these hold up to repeated wearing, washing, stain removing, etc., but I have high hopes since the overall design is really effective" —E.

    Get them from TomboyX for $32 (available in sizes XS–4X and two colors).

    TomboyX is a queer-owned business founded by Fran and Naomi, with the mission of creating comfy, gender-neutral underwear and loungewear

    26. A dozen Bottle Bright tablets for deep cleaning your thermoses and on-the-go bottles — no scrubbing required. These'll get into all those hard-to-reach spaces and remove *all* the gunk.

    A stainless steel tumbler with baked-on coffee stains on the left, and the same cup totally clean on the right
    amazon.com

    Just plop one tablet in and let it sit overnight. The foaming action will power away gross stuff, residue, and seemingly permanent odors while you get some beauty sleep.

    Promising review: "Magic tablets! These little tablets were amazing! By far the best item I’ve bought all year. I have been using the same few Contigo mugs every day for coffee for years and the insides were quite stained. This did the trick and they look like new. Amazing!!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8.

    27. A foot filing rasp that'll undo years of callus buildup in mere MINUTES. No waiting for intense creams to do their work, no getting pedicure after pedicure — if you want to see results ASAP, you'll think it's ~grate~.

    A collage of six images: the top cracked heels before treatment, the middle mid-treatment, the bottom after lotioning, not cracked  at all
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have BAD feet. Like genetically bad. I have tried EVERYTHING. I’ve spent an excessive amount of money on foot masks, foot scrubs, pedicures, pumice stones, foot files, etc. Nothing worked. This fixed my feet in five minutes. I was actually in shock. I haven’t had 'soft' feet in years. I literally feel like I have new feet. Best $10 I ever spent." —Hdb

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    28. An undated productivity planner so you can keep your goals ahead of you and your tasks organized starting TODAY, not January 1st.

    Amazon

    It'll help keep track of your to-do lists, calendars, schedules, and goals (both short- and long-term), and even will help you make and keep habits!

    Promising review: "The best product I’ve bought! I love this! Love the quality, the distribution, the color, and the aspects it includes. This has helped me a lot to get organized and improve productivity and it a great help for daily evaluation of my life." —Veronica

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in 11 colors).

    29. A set of Rubbermaid containers with lids that snap onto the *bottom* of containers, meaning you'll never have to go on a 15-minute hunt for the right pair while your leftovers are sitting out.

    30. An easy-breezy pineapple corer perfect 🎶 if you like piña coladas 🎶... but not spending a fortune on pre-cut pineapple. This thing is so easy to use, it's like a tropical vacation in your kitchen.

    Cut off the top of your pineapple, twist the corer into the fruit (kind of like a wine bottle corkscrew), then pull it out. You now have a cored and spiral-cut pineapple in minutes!

    Promising review: "OMG when I say this is the best thing I’ve bought!!! I’ve never bought a whole pineapple before, so when I did, I had no clue on the best way to cut it. This tool helped A LOT. It is sooooo easy to cut and get the pineapple out. It definitely made my drinks easier to make!" —Jayfree

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I recommend this to anyone who can’t seem to get their stove top cleaned. The most amazing cleaning product I’ve ever used. It took me a second cleaning to get the surface completely cleaned but it was super easy to do and won’t use anything else. BEST PRODUCT I'VE EVER BOUGHT." —Katelyn

    32. A stainless-steel bar that'll actually rid your hands of foul odors (even fish, garlic, and onions!). Just rub — with or *without* water — and the stink is gone.

    Promising review: "I always thought it was a hoax that a piece of steel could remove kitchen odors (like from chopping onions or garlic). I am happy to report that it totally works. Handle all the stinky food you want - even non food odors - and then wash your hands with this steel bar. No soap. No perfume. It just removes the odor nearly instantly. Little bar is reasonably priced as well. Best gadget I've bought in years." —Deb

    33. A mini (but bright and powerful) multimedia projector (and screen!) perfect for turning any room into a mini movie theater. Just plug in a phone, gaming system, streaming stick (including the Amazon Fire TV stick), or laptop.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my bedroom. Thought it would be interesting vs buying a TV. It is the greatest thing I bought all year. My girlfriend loves it. We had a few days off and watched movie after movie. It took a little time to adjust and find what position and what works best for us and so we decided to hang the sheet from the ceiling and put the projector on the shelf behind my bed. This position gives us the best picture. The distance is not to far or to close. We can hook the phone, laptop, even tried the DVD player and all works great. The volume is great gets really loud. Definitely recommend." —nickoy simpson

    34. A cat self-grooming toy that'll make your furry friend think "I'm ~feline~ myself" — and help you have less hair to clean off your clothes...furniture...and everywhere else.

    Just mount it on a wall or corner with the included strips!

    Promising review: "My cat is IN LOVE with this thing! She goes nuts rubbing her face and neck all over this thing. I call it her 'scratchy scratchy'... I can hear her from the next room rubbing and nibbling on it. It cracks me up. It is secure on the wall and has never fallen off. The comb part pops off if you need to clean it. I haven't had to use the included package of cat nip because she didn't need any encouraging. This is the best thing I have ever bought!" —Jennifer

    Promising review: "I have been using these for about a week now, and I cannot tell you how much they have HELPED with plantar fasciitis. It is nothing short of amazing. I didn't realize that these also act as an arch support until I wore them. Nothing but praise from me. I have spent soooo much $$ on foot remedies, and was skeptical about these little elastic bands, but this has to be the best product I have purchased in years! I have already ordered another pair just to be sure I have them on hand !! AAA+++ product !" —remzy
