We combed through several kitchen appliance categories and found the products with some of the most five-star reviews around. Thousands of customers were satisfied with these gadgets and tools—most likely you will be too. Read on for our favorite options.

This blender means business, and the reviews of over 3,300 very happy people say it all. "I'd recommend this blender to anyone who wants to have a good, heavy duty blender, but cannot afford to spend $400+ on a Vitamix," says one customer, "It's stylish, it makes the best smoothies I've had from a home blender around this price, and it's got a lot of power for a reasonable price." All the parts are dishwasher safe and BPA free, plus the two 16-ounce cups with to-go lids are ideal for making smoothies portable.
