One likely reason AirPods were a bestseller in 2020: There aren’t any pesky cords to get tangled in the straps of your mask! They’re also just great headphones, offering high-quality audio and up to five hours of listening on one charge.

Ring first released the Floodlight Cam in 2017, and since then the company has been silent on it. It started to feel like the floodlight had been all but forgotten. Then, amid announcements of a new video doorbell, Ring delivered the redesigned Floodlight Cam Wired Pro.

The Cuisinart HM-90BCS Plus mixer caught our eye right out of the box, with a sleek design and sturdy build that felt stable in the hand. Testing confirmed our initial impression, with the appliance scoring top marks across the board for function — easily mixing, whisking, beating and kneading — as well as ease of use and storage.
$249.99 at Amazon
This cordless vac weighs about 2 pounds and maneuvers wherever you need for it to go in your home, whether it’s getting the dust out of rugs or sucking up dirt from your hardwood floors (it can go extra powerful here too, thanks to PowerFins technology that gets deep into carpets and floor grooves). It converts into a hand vacuum for couch cushions and tabletop messes as well, and when it’s full, use a simple one-touch dump system to empty it all out.

There are plenty of rave reviews for air fryers — and many loyal fans of the devices, like Cote. In fact, she says she uses this for everything: frozen food, fresh produce, creative recipes or go-to basics. It provides a necessary crunch to healthy food while using little oil, ultimately resulting in 85% less fat than deep-fried food.
$99 at Amazon
We love giving the gift of a small kitchen appliance. Small appliances like air fryers and breakfast sandwich makers offer a range of price points, functions and colors — for Valentine’s Day, red, rose gold or pink is an obvious choice. This red chopper is a favorite of meal prep experts, but if that’s too dicey (get it?!) a heart-shaped waffle maker is another great choice.
$1899.99 $1650 at Amazon
Our pick for best luxury T, the Sony A8H 55-inch TV delivers vibrant colors and a superbly detailed picture, thanks to its OLED capabilities and 4K resolution.
$79.99 at Amazon
These great multimedia features have yielded a big, unexpected benefit — my work area is now more minimalist than ever. Whereas the PC side of my desk is cluttered with an external microphone, a set of speakers and a webcam partially obscuring my monitor, the iMac gives me the capabilities of all three. Better yet, it’s housed in an incredibly slim and attractive slab of purple metal. I still wish the iMac had more than four USB-C ports (I’m currently using a Satechi USB-C hub for more connectivity), but I find myself not needing to use them very often when the built-in stuff works so well.

The Apple TV 4K is powered by tvOS and integrates with iTunes and iCloud, allowing you to stream music, photos and videos from your existing library. Plus, if you own compatible Apple devices, such as iPhones, iPads and MacBooks, AirPlay connectivity allows you to wirelessly share content on your big screen. Your shows will look better than ever with 4K, which uses four times more pixels than Full HD, and HDR, which makes for especially vivid colors and detail — and they’ll sound incredible too, thanks to immersive Dolby Atmos audio.

If you don’t have a ton of space but want to work up a major sweat, personal trainer Miriam Fried recommends this TRX suspension training kit. As she explains, you can easily work out your entire body without building out an entire gym. Win-win!

Samsung’s 27-inch curved monitor doesn’t boast a 4K display, but the 1080p resolution is more than enough to get the job done, along with a curved screen for a better viewing experience.
$129.95 at Amazon
This was, to our eye, the most handsome and minimally designed of the straightforward auto-brewers, delivering a clean, tasty cup. It lost first place only because the touchscreen may not be for every consumer, and brew time is significantly longer than the other machines we tried out.
$499.95 at Amazon
The Breville Super Q features a slew of preset buttons, comes in multiple colors, includes key accessories and is quieter than other models. It does carry a steep price tag, but for those who can’t imagine a smoothie-less morning, what breaks down to about $1.30 a day over a year seems like a bargain.
$379 at Amazon
This Vitamix 5200 blender was nearly named one of our best blenders thanks to its power and tall, narrow, high-profile container.
$199.99 $179.99 at Amazon
This sleek-looking air fryer sits pretty on your counter but has a whole lot going on inside: It has 12 presets to cook 13-inch pizzas, make toast and toast bagels, rotisserie whole chickens, bake cookies, broil, dehydrate your herbs and even ferment. It comes with a rotisserie fork and handle as well as a fry basket, foot tray and crumb tray (plus a recipe book) so you’re good to go as soon as you open the box.
