    Ginsu Chikara

    Ginsu Chikara

    Some still associate the Ginsu brand with its ’70s and ’80s infomercials. (“Not even a tin can can dull a Ginsu!”) But this a serious cutlery company, and its eight-piece set offers real value. CR experts named the collection a Best Buy after finding that it offers performance and handle comfort on par with much pricier knives.

      Black+Decker Mill & Brew CM5000B

      Black+Decker Mill & Brew CM5000B

      Coffee aficionados know that the volatile oils, flavors, and aromas in coffee beans are exposed by grinding—and begin dissipating within minutes. This machine keeps the flavors fresh by grinding whole beans in the brew basket immediately before adding hot water. But if you want to use pre-ground coffee, the grind function switches off.

              Amazon Fire HD 8 2017 (16GB)

              This Amazon product covers the basics well: reading news and books, watching movies, and playing simple games. Its 15-hour battery life is better than average. While not at the top of CR’s tablet ratings, it’s a great deal, selling for about one-half the cost of most competitors. It comes with Alexa, the voice-responding virtual assistant.
