4. Chef-worthy kitchen appliances
“I LOVE this ice cream maker! Aside from oh so delicious ice cream, it’s so easy to use and only takes an hour or less from start to finish. It’s also perfect for those of us who eat keto (or have other dietary restrictions) since you can customize the recipes to use sugar alternatives etc. It definitely helps me keep my keto lifestyle and sweet tooth happy — by the way, you NEED to check out this yummy raspberry cheesecake keto ice cream recipe! Oh my… ” – Collin
“Every kitchen deserves a KitchenAid. These mixers are super high quality, come in so many colors, and will be part of their kitchen decor for a lifetime.” – Emily
“This grill is the best I have seen to date. It cooks up steak, fish, veggies, or anything else you want. With fattier foods, there is a little residual smoke but otherwise, it works great in any kitchen!” – Stetson
5. High-end coffee machines
“I am obsessed with my Breville! It makes the best espresso and comes with so many features that I’ve started making my own lattes at home, too. It’s pricey but worth every cent, I swear!” – Angie
“I’ll never have to overspend at the coffee shop again! I can make my own fancy cafe drinks right at home now, and this machine has been surprisingly easy to use once you get the hang of it. Love adding frothed milk to all my coffee drinks!” – Alana
“It’s kind of unique looking for a coffee maker but it’s been a huge conversation piece in my kitchen. Plus it makes a delicious cup of coffee. And the warming plate never burns the coffee pot so no bitter coffee for me!” – Jim
6. High tech cleaning appliances
“My Father-in-law gifted me this Roomba two Christmases ago and it has changed my life! I was spending so much time constantly cleaning up crumbs from my kids, and this is just the perfect addition to the family, we even gave it a name! My hardwood floors are forever spotless because of this genius product!” – Sara
“To my surprise, the battery actually lasts a long time, and the mop is also pretty quiet. It’s been a game-changer in keeping my floors clean, especially in heavy traffic areas.” – Sandy
“This thing is truly amazing. Perfect for allergies, and can even be used as a cooling fan in the summer. It looks super high tech too!” – Erica
7. Innovative beauty tools
“So cool! I love having different size options for the curling barrel and they’re easy to attach. It’s the prettiest curling iron I’ve ever owned!” – Liza
“I have thick wavy hair and I love this brush! It makes smoothing out frizz so easy just by brushing out my hair. It’s a higher price for a brush but it does the job of frizz fighting straightener too.” – Jami
“I can’t believe how healthy my daughter’s hair looked when I bought her this straightener. She said the vibration made each strand flatten straight so it didn’t take multiple passes. She loves it!” – Alyssa
“It does absolutely EVERYTHING! Not only can use it for texting and work-related stuff, but it also has AWESOME activity features like tracking steps! It’s also fun to see my heart rate during a high-intensity workout. Oh and not to mention the step competitions my hubby and I have! 😉” – Collin
“Such a good looking watch and it has awesome battery life. It keeps me connected to everything, but still just looks like a high-end watch on my wrist.” – Dave
“While I admit a lot of Apple products outperform their competitors… the Fitbit Versa is LEGIT! I now have a product that’s not running on an iOS system that gives the Apple Watch a run for its money, and it’s A LOT cheaper!” – Jennifer (read her full review here!)
“I love tuning out all the chaos with my Apple AirPods. I also tend to get really into my music, so having wireless headphones lets me rock out without getting tangled up with wires! And if I ever need to take them out to give someone my attention, my music automatically pauses so I never miss a beat.” – Collin
“Unbeatable sound quality, easy storage, the connectivity to making phone calls. These headphones are amazing! And the battery life is phenomenal!” – Chelsey
“These headphones are expensive but worth every single penny. They tune out passengers on planes, at coffee shops, or just the noise at home. So glad I purchased them.” – Josh
10. Streaming devices
“We use our Apple TV every day! Since we got it, we were able to get rid of cable and still enjoy all our favorite shows. It’s even easy enough for our kids to use when they want to pick out a movie. It was so nice not having to pay for cable anymore, we will never go back!” – Sara
“So glad I don’t have to pay for cable anymore! We record all our favorite shows still and can watch them in high-def so we’re not missing out on anything.” – Michelle
“I bought this for my son and he’s been loving it! I knew he was a PC gamer so being able to stream his video games and now shows and movies as well, he has all his favorite content in one spot. Well worth it!” – Mary
