The HP Chromebook x360 14 is our top pick in our guide to the best chromebooks. Wirecutter Senior Staff Writer Kimber Streams wrote that it “has solid performance, a great keyboard and trackpad, all-day battery life, and a sturdier body than most other Chromebooks we tested.”
The also great pick in our guide to the best dash cams, the Garmin Dash Cam Mini is one of the smallest and most discreet models we’ve tested. Rik Paul and Molly K. McLaughlin wrote “Measuring only about 2 inches high and 1¼ inches wide (about the size of a key fob), it’s one of the smallest and most discreet models we’ve tested, virtually disappearing on the windshield.”
One of our top picks in our guide to the best memory foam mattresses you can buy online, our testers liked the Tulo Comfort as much as mattresses that cost twice the price. Wirecutter Senior Staff Writer Joanne Chen wrote that “the Medium version we tested had a slow sink, was easy to roll around on, and didn’t cause any overheating.”
The Monoprice Strata Home Sous Vide Precision Cooker is our budget pick from our review of the best sous vide machine and gear. Tim Barribeau and Nick Guy wrote that this product is great “if you’re just getting into sous vide cooking and you’re not sure if you’ll take to it, or if you’re looking for an inexpensive gift for someone who loves to cook.”
Street price: $70; deal price $42. This is a new low on an affordable sous vide machine.
The Apple iPad (7th generation, 32GB, Wi-Fi) is our pick for the best all -around tablet. Wirecutter Senior Staff Write Nick Guy wrote “Its combination of performance, features, hardware quality, app selection, and accessories makes it superior to any other company’s tablets, and at its price it offers a better value than almost anything Apple sells.”
Our top pick in our review of the best portable induction cooktops, this is a great price for those who need an extra cooking surface this holiday season. Sharon Franke and Michael Sullivan wrote “The Duxtop cooked more evenly than other models we tested. In addition, it comes with a number of user-friendly safety features, including those that can prevent overheating or alert you if you accidentally use the wrong kind of pan.”
The TaoTronics LED Eye-caring Desk Lamp (TT-DL13) is the top pick in our review of the best LED Desk lamps. Wirecutter Staff Writer Anna Perling wrote that the TaoTronics pick “is the best lamp we’ve found for task work, and it’s the one we’d pick to accentuate a home-office desk or task table. It has the widest range of brightness and color temperatures of the lamps we tested, making it the most versatile for different moods or times of day, and its frosted light panel diffuses light and prevents glare better than the competition.”
The Cuisinart CI670-30CR Chef’s Classic Enameled Cast Iron 7-Quart Round Covered Casserole is our also great pick in our guide to the best dutch oven. Kevin Purdy and Ray Aguilera wrote that this model “cooks evenly and allows for a nearly perfect amount of evaporation.”
Street price: $80; deal price $63. At $63 for the cardinal red version, this is within a few dollars of the lowest price we’ve seen on this dutch oven.
Our also great pick in our review of the best light therapy lamps, the Northern Light Technologies Boxelite Desk Lamp has a sleek, minimalist design. Kit Dillon and Anna Perling wrote “Our favorite aspect of the Boxelite is its sleek design. The Boxelite has a picture-frame setup, minimal design with few accents, and cleaner edges.”
