How We Test

We’re committed to testing products that are popular and that simplify people’s lives. We use consumer research and expert advice to help us select which products to test. So far we’ve tested products ranging from mattresses and memory foam pillows to percussion guns and at-home exercise equipment. When we review a product, we’re testing to see if the product performs as the manufacturer claims in real-world settings. We often bring products home to see if a vacuum can hold its own against our pets or if a new food processor can make our favorite falafel recipe. If you’d like to get updates on what we’re testing you can sign up for our newsletter.

We're committed to independent testing, which means we never accept free products in exchange for positive reviews.

Once we identify a product we want to test, we either purchase it ourselves or request a review unit from the manufacturer. While we occasionally test units we've received for free from manufacturers, we only publish reviews on products that pass our tests. Once we finish testing a product, we do our best to donate it to a nonprofit. In the past, we've donated toys and household appliances, including pressure cookers and Instant Pots.
