Promising review: “This worked so well for draining beef grease from my large 12” fry pan. There was no leaking whatsoever like I was afraid of. It poured perfectly into a small cup. I also used it to drain hot water from boiling noodles for the same dinner! I had tried everything to drain fat, and this is a lifesaver! I cannot wait to use it again!” —Ashley

Review photo of the white stackable can rack organizer


Promising review: “In an attempt to make my brand new pantry as organized and pleasing to the eye as possible, I did a lot of research looking for a can organizer. I purchased two of these based on reviews and the number of cans it holds. It didn’t disappoint, for sure! Each one is completely filled. The extra large cans, both 28-oz (but different shapes) fit very well on the top rack. It’s extremely sturdy even with all that weight! I’m able to pull a can out easily as well.” —Amazon reviewer

Review photo of the flint gray fuzzy fleece throw blanket


Promising review: “This exceeded expectations. It’s a textured, baby soft fleece material that my beagle dogs can’t get enough of. The softness holds up in the washer too. All those muddy paw prints, they get washed often! I ordered one to see how they’d like it…I had to get two because they each wanted their own! I’m pregnant and as soon as I find out the gender, I’ll be ordering one for the baby.” —Jenna

Review photo of the Instant Pot


Promising review: “I use this for everything! How did I live without this before? This is so easy to use, and it’s the perfect size for one or two people. I’ve been making a lot of stews, and I’ll saute the onions, carrots, and meat (if I’m using meat) then add everything else, seal it, and set it for seven minutes on high pressure. I let it release naturally and have a perfectly cooked, tasty meal every time. This gives me enough for four or five servings.” —Amazon reviewer

Review photo of the gray kitchen utensils


Promising review: “I have been searching for kitchen utensils that fit in my counter top utensil holder. These were on an awesome sale so I gave them a try. I have not been disappointed! They fit really well, and to my surprise, the silicone they use is very durable. Not flimsy like some I have used. I also am impressed with the customer service. They seem very concerned for my satisfaction with their product. I am!! Great product!!” —Amazon reviewer

A stylish set of three pure cotton woven potholders that make for excellent gifts for those family and friends who spend a ton of time in the kitchen and tend to accidentally burn themselves a little too often.

Review photo of the gray potholder set


Promising review: “I bought these for my mother as a gift because she was having a hard time finding pink things for her kitchen. I rarely buy home things like this online but I’m glad I did. These came well presented for a gift complete with a bow. The colors are great plus they are large and thick enough so they can actually be used. She takes pans straight from the oven to the trivets and she’s had no problems using them on her painted wood table.” —Shannon

Price: $9.98 (available in four colors)


A soothing white noise machine with a timer, adjustable night light, and 14 high-fidelity sleep soundtracks to doze off to. Whether you’re dealing with noisy neighbors, need extra privacy, or want to help lull a fussy baby to sleep, this is a must-have for anyone sensitive to sound.

Review photo of the white noise machine


Promising review: “I’m absolutely in LOVE with this sound machine! I’ve been using an app on my iPhone for as long as I remember to reduce anxiety with hearing myself breathe when trying to sleep. In time, I realized the damage it probably does to my phone battery when it’s on all the time so i decided to look into buying a sound machine. This machine has so many different sounds (even though I only ever is the one, the others are a plus). It’s super easy to operate and has a beautiful design. The volume is adjustable from quiet to loud with amazing sound quality. The night light on it is sooo perfect! It goes from dim enough to just find the light switch on my night stand to bright enough to illuminate the whole room! I’m just absolutely obsessed with this noise machine. It gives me those stress free comfortable nights I’ve been craving. Seriously, if you are looking for a sleep machine, look no further. This is it!!!” —Laurel

Price: $19.99+ (available in four colors)

Review photo of the kitchen counter and cabinet organizer shelf rack


Promising review: “I was skeptical about racks designed like this due to the large heavy pans I own, but this rack held them up like a champ! I tried the different ways the rack can be adjusted to hold my pans and found that standing the rack up is the most efficient and space-saving position. Love it!” —Ya Juan

Price: $17.47 (originally $24.99)


A handy drill brush power scrubber attachment ideal for getting all the grossness out of your grout, tub, and shower. It’s made of nylon, won’t scratch surfaces, and comes in three different sizes depending on your scrubbing needs.

Review photo of the red drill brush power scrubber attachment


Promising review: “I bought this on a whim because my walk in shower is just a pain to clean. I’m 51 and I guess I’ve just been old school with how I clean, so hand scrubbing it was for years. The FIRST time I used this to clean my shower it took five minutes AND it scrubbed my shower more clean than it has been in years. In the corners, the floor, the glass door,…everything came out squeaky clean. I’m NEVER cleaning my shower by hand again.” —Terry

Price: $14.95+ (available in six colors)

Review photo of the food storage container set


Promising review: “Just received my storage containers and am very pleased with the quality. The containers are solid and sturdy and the lids seal securely providing assurance the contents will stay put. Everything was packed for whatever shipping might bring and the delightful labels even came with a chalk pen. I rid my kitchen of all the plastic bags I was using to store rice, nuts, brown sugar, etc. Now my shelves are orderly and all the contents labeled and visible. Kitchen nirvana!” —Amazon reviewer

Price: $31.97 (originally $39.97)

The bathroom storage corner floor cabinet


Promising review: “Works as promised! This little cabinet was exactly what I needed. It was very easy to assemble about five minutes or less. The material is light but sturdy enough for what you keep inside which is the toilet paper and a few bottles of toilet cleaner and spray. I really like it and recommend it.” —Amazon reviewer

Price: $35.99 (originally $39.99)


A sleek ultra-thin electric outlet cover that comes with a three-outlet power strip so your WFH space stays neat, tidy, and organized for the rest of quarantine and beyond. Bonus points for it blending into most walls, creating not only less clutter and chaos, but a cleaner-looking office space.

Review photo of the ultra-thin electric outlet covers


Promising review: “I don’t write many reviews unless a product is really great. This one is the best little invention to come into my life lately! I used it behind my bed as we have an adjustable bed and every time I would raise it, it would hit the plugs in the outlet and pull them out. If I pulled the bed away from the wall, the pillows would fall to the floor. I could not come up with a solution until I found the sleek outlet! It’s amazing! So easy to set up. I even bought another one for my family room. Hides all of the ugly cords. I have already recommended this product to my friends. Makes everything look neat and clean!” —Connie

Price: $23.95+ (available in four sizes)

Review photo of the solar deck lights


Promising review: “These little lights are beautiful and worth every penny I spent! I have already ordered more of them for my in-laws. They are colorful, long-lasting on a single charge (8–10 hours, sometimes more), and very easy to install. I used the double-sided tape they suggested and it holds through any weather. I highly recommend these patio lights.” —Elvis

Price: $36.99 (originally $39.99)

Review photo of the white marble home office laptop lap desk


Promising review: “This thing has turned me into a couch potato. It’s so comfortable, I can spend hours using it. It has the perfect amount of space for my 15″ laptop. This is also good for using as a flat writing surface when I’m journaling or working in my adult coloring books. Teachers might also find the flat surface useful for grading papers. I can even use this on long road trips!” —Chanta

Price: $32.59+ (available in six colors)


A firm, easy-to-inflate air mattress complete with its own frame and rolling case so anytime you have a guest over, you won’t have to hear anymore complaints about it deflating overnight since its seams are airtight and it’s supported by high-quality PVC material.

Review photo of the inflatable air mattress


Promising review: “I LOVE this bed! I love that it is as high as a regular bed, so that my guests (or sometimes, ME) don’t have to crawl out on the floor… and I just love watching it do its transformer thing and unfold itself in just two minutes, soooo cool. My grandkids kids think I am the coolest nana ever. That alone was worth the price. But it also stays inflated — unbelievable! My guests cannot believe it is an airbed. I have been looking at these beds for years and thought they couldn’t possible be as wonderful as they look — but guess what! THEY ARE!” —Leslie

Price: $259.99+ (available in three sizes)


An instant-read digital cooking thermometer for when you’re in the mood to be the fave sous chef of the family. In just seconds, get an accurate read and response and be done with overdone and undercooked food forevermore.

Review photo of the elegant silver digital cooking thermometer


Promising review: “Comparing to both a traditional analog meat thermometer and my scientific glass thermometer, this has never read more than a single degree different than either of them. That’s straight-up impressive! Using the thermometer couldn’t be easier. There’s a single button for the power on/off and a second button that swaps between degrees F/C (Fahrenheit and Celsius). Accurate readings appear in just 3–5 seconds and the protective pen-clip cover slides on and off the probe easily. All in all, this thermometer is a fantastic value and I will be purchasing more so that all of my family and friends have an accurate and reliable food thermometer on hand! Highly recommended!” —Masta

Price: $12.99+ (available in four colors)

A mountable over-the-cabinet organizer, great for hanging your cutting boards, bakeware, cookie sheets, and plastic food wraps. Aren’t you craving a batch of fresh-baked chocolate chip already?

Review photo of the over-the-cabinet organizer


Promising review: “Just what I needed. Very sturdy. Very easy to put together. I like that you have everything you need to hang it over the door or attach it straight into the wood. Perfect size. It even has a soft coating on the inside of the handles. I was going to put my boxes of Ziploc bags in there but they don’t fit. That would probably make the basket protrude too far anyway though.” —Gretchen

Price: $14.97+ (available in two pack sizes)


A lightweight cordless vacuum cleaner, easy to use on wet or dry floors with a powerful, quiet suction that won’t make too much noise and disturb your pets as it runs and picks up all their excess fur.

Review photo of the vacuum cleaner


Promising review: “I was hesitant. Every gadget holds the big promise of being the best thing ever. I’m glad I bought the unit. I’ve had fractured vertebrae and major back surgery. This machine is so light and easy to use that even with a very bad back, I can use this! It cleans my textured tile floors spotless. The suction is unbelievable. It’s an amazing device. It’s efficient. It’s quiet. Love the self cleaning feature! Best money I’ve spent in a long time. It looks durable- I hope it is. No regrets” —Debra

Price: $254.15


A sophisticated handheld stainless-steel immersion blender with included whisk and milk frother attachments. It may be European engineered, but it’s American guaranteed with an optional warranty for up to one year.

The handheld immersion blender


Promising review: “This is a highly efficient blender. It is powerful enough to send a poorly-assembled smoothie mix to all ends of the kitchen and dining room. Once the volume of the jar’s contents was low enough, the blender worked to produce a wonderfully smooth and deliciously blended smoothie.” —Amazon reviewer

Price: $29.99 (originally $44.99)


A high-quality set of six stainless-steel measuring spoons that are easy to clean and thoughtfully designed to put an end to all cooking nightmares for good. Oh, and they’ll last you forever.

Review photo of the measuring spoons


Promising review: “Why I like these measuring spoons: 1) They’re very sturdy spoons. Stainless steel is a high-quality material. They’ll last forever. 2) The connector ring opens and closes very easily so you can remove spoons without much hassle. 3) They come with a 1/8 tsp measure, which my old spoons didn’t have! 4) They’re deep and narrow, so they fit into most jars. This is actually a huge selling point.” —Hannah

Price: $9.99


A spa-quality cool mist ultrasonic humidifier to relieve congestion and coughing. It comes complete with a snazzy smart LED indicator and auto shut-off feature.

Review photo of the white humidifier


Promising review: “I keep this humidifier near my bed at night as I always seem to have very dry nasal passages. I love the look of it. It’s sleek, solid and well-made. Use of this humidifier couldn’t be easier. Just pull the tank off, flip it upside down, remove the cap and fill, then replace the tank and turn the dial! The mist is instant and I like that you can adjust the amount of mist with the dial. This is hands down the quietest humidifier I have ever used. Overall, I would highly recommend this.” —Hawkey
