The Hoover Linx Cordless is our runner-up pick in our guide on the best cordless stick vacuum. Liam McCabe writes, “Unlike the 2-in-1, it doesn’t convert into a hand vac and doesn’t have a hose or any attachable tools—this is for floors only. But it cleans wood, tile, and short rugs just as well as the newer Hoover, the battery runs a couple minutes longer (about 16 minutes total)

CNET gave the vacuum four out of five stars in its review. They said, “The Hoover Linx isn’t fancy, but it will clean your floors better than most of the other stick models we tested. Combine that with its reasonable price and you have one of our favorite vacuums to date.”

The KitchenAid KSB1570SL 5-Speed Blender is our budget pick for best blender.Christine Cyr Clisset wrote, “If you’re planning to use a blender just a couple of times a week, or you want a starter machine for making smoothies and purees, we like the KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender. It beat out all the regular blenders in our tests last year, and in a year of long-term testing we’ve found it works fine for rustic smoothies.”

She went into some detail about the budget competition, “To be clear, this is no Oster Versa—and certainly not a Vitamix—but for a fraction of the price it does a decent enough job. The other blenders we tested in this price range were either cheap feeling or very loud, or produced a gross burnt motor smell while running. We didn’t love the hard plastic lid on this blender, and the way the jar clips onto the base took some getting used to, but beyond that we have no complaints.”

The Glad Tall Kitchen Drawstring bags are our pick for the best kitchen trash bag. Josh Centers writes, “The best trash bag for hauling garbage that is heavy or sharp or simply kitchen detritus is the Glad Tall Kitchen drawstring bag. It’s the favorite of Consumer Reports and Good Housekeeping and consistently stood up to our testing, holding vastly more weight and demonstrating more resistance to rips and tears than other trash bags.”

He added, “Sure, you could spend a few cents less on the bag, but the cost savings will be minimal and will surely not outweigh the hassle of a busted bag… Despite using less plastic than the competition, it also leads the pack in resisting rips and tears. Save your sanity and invest in a better trash bag.”

The All-Clad 12-inch Stainless Steel Fry Pan is our pick for the best skillet. Michael Zhao is wrote, “The All-Clad also hits all the other requirements for a great skillet. It’s just heavy enough that it does a great job of retaining heat, but not so heavy that it’s difficult to maneuver. In their review, ATK said that the All-Clad “controlled heat for excellent browning… [and] the weight balance was outstanding; it was easy to manipulate and lift”

Here’s some more detail about the durability, “Cook’s Illustrated’s durability tests managed to loosen or ding up every other pan in the roundup, but the All-Clad came out good as new. Ask anyone who’s been in the food industry for long enough and chances are that they’ll have an All-Clad that they’ve been using for a decade or more. In fact that’s just what we did.

The Farberware Classic 2-Quart is the budget pick in our guide on the best small saucepan

In our tests, this saucepan made a fine pot of rice, just like the other pans. Making custard and caramel, though, took a lot of finesse, heat adjustments, and straight-up moving the pot on and off the flame to avert a scrambled egg custard mess.

This is our pick for the best “bug shotgun” in our guide on the best bug-killing gear. The whole thing is really well-made. The hard plastic body has some weight to it and feels very solid. It also uses a very cinematic pump action that feels oddly satisfying as you unleash your fury on whatever terrorist bugs are in your airspace.

About how far it can reach . At six feet, the salt spreads out into a wide shotgun blast that doesn’t have much impact. Beyond six feet, you’ve basically discovered the world’s most elaborate way to season french fries.

This is our runner-up pick for the best dutch oven. Even at this price our main pick, the Lodge Dutch Oven, is still cheaper.

However, The larger surface area resulted in the highest percentage of evaporation during braising—20.5%. That extra concentration made for more flavorful liquid, but the same thing could be accomplished in another Dutch oven by letting it simmer a few minutes longer.” It also comes with a lifetime warranty like our other picks.
