7. Novel Duffle Bag Herschel
“Bought for my husband and use it every chance I get! Great quality. The shoe pocket is clever and doesn’t take up as much room as I thought it would. The shoulder pad is cushioned well too so you’re not in pain while carrying it around the airport. Didn’t want to be a hipster and jump on the Herschel band wagon but I’m happy I did- it’s so popular for a reason! Thinking about buying- just do it!”Most Promising Amazon Review
8. Roadtrip LXE Portable Gas Grill
Most Promising Amazon Review
“After a lot of research, I ordered this grill.
I had a Coleman tabletop grill for years but I was looking something with its own stand and this is exactly what I had in mind!
Mine arrived today and I had it assembled in about 20 minutes.
Very easy assembly and they even include the one tool you need. (To attach the two wheels.)
It would have actually been a 5 minute assembly but I spent most of the time tugging on the grill to remove it from the very carefully packed and protected shipping box. But that’s actually a good thing.
I have a small patio at my home and I didn’t want a typical, large propane grill.
I also wanted to store it in my garage when not in use to protect it from the elements.
This grill fits the bill perfectly.
Very ample area on the grates to grill.
Seems like it can accommodate anything from a quick lunch to a small dinner party.
I’ve got a couple of great books on grilling and have been watching YouTube videos to learn more.
While I have grilled in the past, I want to kick my game up a notch!
Despite being made in China, this grill has a quality feel to it.
Coleman has been around a long time and clearly set the bar high for Chinese manufacturer to keep their brand reputation.
It has been a while so I started very simply for my first attempt.
Hamburgers with only fresh ground pepper and sea salt and a dash of Worcestershire sauce.
After 6 minute cook time, I let it rest in a plate covered with aluminum foil.
Result, hands down the best burger I have had in years!
I also separately purchased an instant read digital thermometer (only $10) for food safety and control over how well cooked I wanted my food. I gave some thought to analog thermometers but I am glad I chose this digital model. Far easier to accurately read.
I went to a store that sells, among other things, quality cooking accessories.
This one looks solid as opposed to the cheap looking ones at the supermarket for the same price.
This cool model snaps into a case that has a lanyard you can wear around your neck while grilling so you don’t have to put it down.
A meat thermometer is a must, IMHO. I know a chef and he always has one in his uniform shirt pocket at work.
Brought the burgers up to 160 degrees F and perfection.
Needless to say, tomorrow I will not be going out for lunch or dinner.
Nor will I be heating up my house cooking indoors in the middle of the very hot summer here in South Florida.
P.S. Two easy tips to make for easier cleanup.
1) Line the metal bottom of the grill (a few inches below the grates) to catch any drippings or bits of food.
Cut out circular holes to fit the foil around the burners.
Be careful not to block the opening that leads to the grease drip tray.
2) Cut a small piece of aluminum foil to size to line the drip tray.
Cleaning it then consists of just disposing of the small piece of foil.”
9. Super Tool 300 Multitool
“Four years strong and this is still my favorite tool in the box. I’m a mechanical engineering student, and I’ve used it for virtually every possible application. It’s stood up to the task every time. It’s been everywhere from the garage, to work, and even to the high sierras. I’ve used it to cut wood for fires, tighten screws on my laptop, post-process 3d printed objects, cut bailing wire, and in at least 100 other applications. This isn’t a wimpy tool. Every tool is full sized, sturdy, and designed to be used. The wire cutters are replaceable for that day I have to chew them up cutting something they aren’t designed for. The knife holds an edge better than some of my best dedicated folding knives. The saw makes quick work of branches, plastic parts, and even 2×4’s in a pinch. The file is very hard, and has been used on many common plastics and metals without dulling. The screw drivers are full sized and don’t slip even under high torque. The can opener is sharp, fast, and has been used dozens of time. The pliers are hefty and hold on strong to whatever it is I’m gripping. Even after all this use, it still folds up tight every time. This tool lives in my backpack day in and day out. I don’t believe a better multitool exists, at any price point. 6/5 stars.”Most Promising Amazon Review
10. DiamondClean Smart Electric Toothbrush
“I recently upgraded to this toothbrush from a Philips Sonicare Flexcare and it has been absolutely worth it. If you are considering upgrading from a traditional toothbrush to an electric / sonic toothbrush I would recommend doing it immediately. For me, getting an electric toothbrush has been the best investments in personal hygiene by far. It is something I use multiple times a day, and every time I switch back to a traditional toothbrush or any reason, I can tell the difference. Even my dentist is astounded every time I go for a cleaning about twice a year, the sessions are super short as there is barely any plaque build up. If you are new to the space, I wouldn’t waste my time with other options and go straight the best money can buy, and fortunately you don’t have to look any longer because this product is it.Most Promising Amazon Review
Here are the biggest reasons why I’m loving it:
– Good for travel / long battery life: I didn’t realize initially, but the battery has lasted me for over two weeks on a single charge! I just take this in the travel case and forget about charging it for a while.
– Easy Charging: Unlike my Sonicare Flexcare, you don’t have to place the toothbrush on-top of a charging pin, you can simply place it in the charging cup. The cup can also be easily cleaned which is a big plus. You want this process to be as easy as possible and this delivers the best experience I could have ever imagined.
– Seamless / waterproof / handsome design: Over time, my old Fexcare toothbrush started smelling funky because water and gunk accumulated around the seams between the rubber at the bottom charging area. I can already tell this will not happen with this toothbrush because of it’s unibody and seamless design. I’d also like to mention the toothbrush and charging cup look really great, I’m proud to have guests go into my bathroom and admire this gadget. I’m trying to convince my wife to get the same toothbrush in pink, not only because it’s a great product, but it will make our bathroom look even better.
– Useful Smartphone App: I honestly thought the app would be gimmicky, but I was completely wrong. I build software products for a living and I can tell Philips has invested significant resources into building a truly useful mobile app. It blows my mind how well the accelerometers and pressure sensors work and the useful information that it relays to improve your brushing form and tell you where you missed a spot. Brushing too hard is a real issue with electric toothbrushes since in extreme cases, it could wear your gums down, this toothbrush tells you if you are doing it too hard so you don’t have to worry! You don’t need to use the app for this though, the toothbrush has a light at the bottom that tells you if you are applying too much pressure.
– Overall very well thought-out user experience: From the unboxing to the first use, I was delighted at every corner. One of the best consumer electronic experiences I’ve had.
I hope that helps!

13. Temperature Control Ceramic Mug
Most Promising Amazon Review
This is my second one . It is a great product . But you have to follow these instructions 1) NEVER use a sponge with a scrubber on it ever . Even if you let the edge touch when using the other side you will ruin it and over time the coating will chip (hencenmy 2nd one ) . 2) use the Charging saucer and use it when not drinking . You can walk around for just under 2 hours without putting it under the saucer before itnlosses it charge . I just rince with soapy water and wipe out with a towel. For me , it is great . 130 degrees is perfect . Love it . For someone who is hard on their stuff – not a good product because I was actually quite careful and made one mistake with that darn sponge . Company has excellent customer service by the way . They sent me a free charger saucer when the prong broke . Very good company .

15. Stainless Steel Beer Growler
I use this growler as a water bottle as my day usually involves much walking in the midday and afternoon heat. I usually fill it with ice on Monday and by Wednesday morning when I fill it up again (after having refilled it with water several times), the ice is nearly gone.Amazon Review
I have not used it for hot beverages yet so I cannot speak to its performance in that regard.
Additionally the bottle is heavy when filled (which should go without saying), however I’ve never found it uncomfortable to carry. I have not yet identified the best way to attach it to my bicycle for distance carrying though. Also, this growler doesn’t show dings or scrapes very readily.
16. Wonderboom Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
17. Echo Spot
I am not one for reviews but I just had to write this. This thing is a work of art. My whole house is a smart house from my locks to my thermostats. I have 1 Echo, 4 Echo Dots and now one Echo Spot. I love this. It works as expected. I am a total Apple Guy but I choose Alexa over Siri any day. Amazon has knocked it out of the park!
18. Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS + Cellular)
I bought the watch fully expecting to simply add it to my Verizon account through the set up in the Watch app. That’s how it’s supposed to work but when I tried, I got the message from Verizon that my watch is not compatible with Verizon (like several other reviewers have posted here). I knew that was wrong since these watches are not network dependent so I called Verizon. I spent nearly an hour on the phone with 5 different reps only to be told by the last one that my watch was, in fact, not compatible and that I should return it and buy one from Verizon. I still didn’t believe them and decided to try one more time with my local Verizon store. The guys there were fantastic (Boylston St in Boston). They filed a trouble ticket with Verizon and 48 hours later my watch was recognized by the Verizon network and I could set it up. I’m sure all Verizon had to do was to whitelist the IMEI in their database and I can’t understand why the Verizon CSR’s on the phone couldn’t figure that out. Seems the store guys have better access to tech support from the mother-ship.Amazon Review
Don’t be concerned about buying the cellular Apple Watch here, through Amazon. If you get one and it isn’t recognized by the network, don’t bother calling Verizon, just go to your local Verizon Store and they can get it working
