Or you can use the Anova Culinary app to find your cook settings and start, stop, and monitor your cooking from your mobile device.

    Promising review: “This cooker is incredible! I have never used a precision cooker before. But this is so cool. I can regulate the temperature of the water while I cook, even with bluetooth, if I'm not in the room watching it in person. I can't wait to keep messing around with this. It is so cool. I don't know why I am so obsessed with this this, but I am!” —RickKSav


    4. A self-charging Eufy RoboVac so you can keep your home clean without the hassle of a traditional vacuum's cords, bags, and attachments.


    The vacuum includes an anti-scratch tempered glass cover, infrared sensor to help it avoid bumping into obstacles, and drop-sensing tech so it can avoid falls.

Promising review: “We got Eufy when we purchased our home that has hardwood floors because we have two labs and cleaning the dog hair alone is a chore. We would have to clean multiple times daily. The Eufy makes it so easy and does a fantastic job getting every piece of hair off the floor. It even goes over the rugs and mats exceptionally well. This thing is definitely good for pets, hence the name. I totally recommend this vacuum to anyone with pets that shed.” —Perez

    Price: $199.99

    Promising review:
    “I bought this online about three weeks ago and love it! It’s easy to put together and no tools are required. I love how the React vacuum head swivels and moves around furniture. Plus it adjusts to carpet and floor depths automatically. The power in such a lightweight vacuum is unbelievable! My carpets have never looked cleaner. The hand tools are so easy to use. I am glad I purchased this vacuum.” —Topo

    Promising review: “I bought this as my first record player. I have a fairly large collection with old scratched up records from Vera Lynn and Nat King Cole, through the '60s through to 2014! Everything from singles and cheaply made records to 180 gram records all work and sound great! My recent favorites —including Daft Punk — sound absolutely incredible. This record player is easy to use, extremely reliable, and sounds excellent. I highly recommend it!” —JDexter

    Price: $129

    Promising review:
    “What a great humidifier. I have gone through a few humidifiers in recent years but this Vicks Humidifier is truly the BEST. It gives out a cool mist, it is quiet, and very easy to fill. The filter-free feature is what sold me. But after having it run in my bedroom for a few weeks, I am so happy I bought this unit. It doubled the humidity in my bedroom over night. Don't hesitate to buy this unit. It is well worth it. I am 100% pleased.” —Nemrac

The slick design of the machine is awesome. My husband loves using it in the morning. By the time he is done getting his shoes on his coffee is done and he is out the door. It is just perfect! It's also very easy to change the K-cups, as well. It is such a great coffee machine!” —Molokaihoney

Price: $129.99 (available in five colors)

    11. A Rocketbook Wave smart notebook you can toss into the microwave to erase your pages and use your book again — making journaling pretty darn epic.

    Promising review: “I love to take this notebook on trips with me when I know I need to travel light but need paper to take notes. I plan to take this around the world with me!

    Promising review: “I use my Instant Pot more than any other appliance in my kitchen. I have one at our summer home and winter home. It saves a lot of time, but, I also like that I can put something on to cook and leave it. After cooking, it also keeps contents on warm.” —Roberta

    Promising review: “I bought this two months ago and couldn't be happier with it. The light wakes you up slowly and naturally and definitely helps on those cold, dark mornings. The sunset feature is surprisingly one of my favorite parts. It really helps to unwind and relax your mind before bed. I don’t know how I ever lived without this!” —LoveMySleep

    Price: $121.97

    18. An Oliso Smart Iron for moving you into the next ion of ironing with scorch guards that lift when you touch them and drop back down once you remove your hands from the iron.



Promising review: “This is the best iron to do my ironing with. My other one lasted me more than nine years. I even dropped it once and it still worked. I highly recommend to empty the iron after each use to prevent the buildup of calcium, which is quite common if your city has hard water.” —Gary 

    Price: $129.99

    19. A Petcube Bites camera that'll help you keep close watch over your favorite pups and give them treats, even if you're miles away.

    Promising review:
    “Our dogs absolutely love this product! Nothing beats being able to talk to and interact with your pups while you're away from home. They especially love the treats that come along with it. The device is very well designed as it looks great just about anywhere you decide to put it.” —Greg

    Price: $249

    20. An iRobot Braava robot mop you can count on to keep your floors looking like perfection.


    It’s recommended you use mild solutions or just tap water with the mop. The mop tracks its path around your home using the included NorthStar Navigation Cube, which works like an indoor GPS to clean your floors. It features two mop modes — dry sweeping or damp mopping. And the mop’s Turbo-Charge Cradle recharges the Braava in just two hours. The mop comes with two reusable microfiber cleaning cloths — one dry sweeping cloth and one damp mopping cloth.

    Promising review: “I’ve had my mop — which I’ve named Richard — for four years. I've replaced the parts the company recommends and it still works great! I like the way it gets under furniture and he is so quiet! We went to Florida for February and naturally we took him with us. He did a great job on sandy floors, as well!” —Richard

    Price: $254.99
