Good news: We’re here to help answer all your questions—like which electric can opener works the best, and whether it’s worth it to invest in a cold brew maker. We’ve sifted through some of Amazon’s best selling small appliances to see which items have been praised by thousands of reviewers (some of which we even tested and loved ourselves). 

Here are some of the most highly rated products we found that you shouldn’t hesitate to add to your Amazon cart.

1. Dash mini waffle maker

Caption: This highly popular appliance makes a mean waffle.

With over 200,000 glowing reviews on Amazon, this waffle maker definitely turns heads. Back when we tested a few of Dash’s mini (and adorable) appliances, we especially loved this one for how perfectly fluffy and evenly cooked each waffle came out. It’s great for making waffles in small batches, since you can only make one at a time. But the maker heats up and cooks pretty quickly, so even cooking for your partner or roommates shouldn’t take too long. Did we mention it’s adorable?

2. Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker

This pressure cooker has several different functions.

A good Instant Pot is a workhorse when it comes to tackling everyday kitchen tasks—from cooking rice and steaming veggies to, of course, slow-cooking and pressuring cooking. This 7-in-1 model can tackle the basics and beyond, with options like yogurt-making and customized pressure cooking for specific foods. When we tested it, we appreciated its tasty soup and risotto results, as well as its affordable price tag. But don’t just take our word for it; almost 150,000 reviewers contributed to its impressive 4.7 stars on Amazon.

3. SimpleTaste handheld milk frother

Cappuccino and matcha lovers: This handy tool is worth adding to your cart.

This frother has been praised thousands of times for its ability to froth excellent latte and cappuccino milk, blend matcha powder, and more. It’s more convenient than other competitors since it runs on batteries (rather than clunky cords) and doesn’t require you to hold down a button while frothing.

4. Cosori Air Fryer Max XL

Cosori's popular air fryer is beloved by the Reviewed staff and consumers alike.

Still haven’t hopped on the air fryer bandwagon yet? If you’ve been putting off this investment for a while, this is your sign to take the leap. Cosori’s crowd-pleasing model has garnered over 70,000 glowing reviews for its 13 cooking functions, crispy results, and larger-than-average capacity. We even ranked this as our Best Value pick after testing several top air fryers, thanks to its excellent functionality and easy-to-clean parts, among other pluses. Plus: It comes with a handy cookbook to help get you started.

Get the Cosori Air Fryer Max XL on Amazon for $100

5.  Cuisinart Deluxe Can Opener

This popular can opener has almost 50,000 ratings.

I’ll be the first person to admit that every time I try to use a manual can opener, I struggle. I can never get the blade to snap into the appropriate position without somehow sliding off along the way. If you’re like me (or just can’t be bothered to use a manual tool every time you open canned food), investing in an electric can opener is a solid investment. And you can’t go wrong with the Cuisinart Deluxe (aka our winning model), which has a strong magnet, uniquely stable design, and automatic stop lever that works well.

6. Cosori 1.7 Liter Glass Electric Kettle

This fancy-looking kettle boils water in just five minutes.

If you’re a frequent tea sipper, this electric kettle could be a game changer in your kitchen. During our tests, it boiled water in just about five minutes—and it looked pretty while doing it, thanks to the blue lights that turn on as it starts to bubble. It’s made of high-quality borosilicate glass and stainless steel that reviewers say has lasted them for years, even as frequent tea drinkers.

7. Keurig K-Elite Coffee Maker

You can't go wrong with this multifunctional Keurig coffee maker.

In the market for a new, single-serve coffee maker? Join the more than 30,000 reviewers who granted the Keurig K-Elite model a glowing five stars. Folks love this machine for its quick brewing time, unique customization options (like an iced coffee feature), and large water reservoir.  We can also confirm that these features work well when we tried it out.

8.  Cuisinart 14-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker

For when you need more than just a cup at a time, this machine is a great choice.

For those who need a heftier pot in the mornings, the Cuisinart 14-Cup Programmable model is a solid choice. This machine allows you to choose from a range of settings, like coffee strength and temperature, to ensure the perfect cup every time. When we tested it for ourselves, we appreciated the customizable options, sleek design, and larger brewing capability.

9.  Takeya Cold Brew Coffee Maker

Say goodbye to overpaying for cold brew from expensive cafés.

If you prefer cold brew over hot coffee, the Takeya Cold Brew Maker might be a better fit for your caffeine needs. It’s as good as it gets when it comes to at-home cold brew makers (at least, that’s what we discovered when we put it to the test in our labs). It’s extremely easy to use and clean, and—most importantly—it produces great-tasting coffee. And more than 50,000 Amazon reviewers agree: It’s an affordable and easy tool to make tasty cold brew at home.

10. Hamilton Beach Dual Breakfast Sandwich Maker

Gone are the days of boring breakfast cereal every day.

You might not think you need an appliance as niche as this breakfast sandwich maker, but just ponder it for a second: How often do you find yourself going out to a café or fast food chain just to spend money on a bacon egg and cheese? This machine helps you easily put together two breakfast sandwiches in a speedy five minutes—easy enough for the weekday rush—with whatever ingredients you desire. And almost 20,000 reviewers agree; its ease-of-use and dishwasher-safe pieces make it easy to implement healthy breakfast sandwiches into your daily routine.

11. Hamilton Beach 6-Speed Electric Hand Mixer with Snap-On Case

This highly rated mixer comes with a snap-on case to keep your cabinet organized.

Every baker—regardless of whether they bake daily or monthly—needs a good electric mixer in the cabinet (if they don’t already have a stand mixer, that is). These are used for anything from whipping egg whites to baking homemade cookies. The Hamilton Beach 6-Speed model, with almost 50,000 reviews, is a great no-frills option that comes with a whisk and easy-clean beaters. It also includes a snap-on case that’s great for storing everything neatly together.

12. Cuisinart Deluxe Electric Griddler

Cuisinart / Reviewed

From indoor grilling to lunchtime paninis, having a griddler in your kitchen is a game-changer.  And the Reviewed staff agrees with over 40,000 Amazon reviewers: The Cuisinart Deluxe model is the best electric griddler money can buy. It can be used open-faced as a larger grilling surface, or closed to resemble a panini press. And the plates are reversible, with a grill pattern on one side and a flat surface on the other.  We found that everything from burgers and chicken breasts to grilled cheeses browned quickly and evenly. The Cuisinart Deluxe also has several useful features, like adjustable temperatures for each plate and a drip tray for grease.

13. Dash Rapid Egg Cooker

100k reviewers swear by this adorable egg cooker.

Another cult favorite from Dash, this egg cooker has almost 100,000 reviews from egg lovers everywhere. It comes in seven fun colors and can make up to six eggs at once in omelette, soft, medium or hard varieties—so you can use them in anything from eggs benedict to cobb salads. When we tried this product ourselves, we found that it does indeed live up to the hype; it’s extremely easy to use and cooks eggs perfectly once it’s been appropriately set up.

14. Mueller Juicer Ultra Power

Get in your daily greens with this powerful (and beautiful) juicer.

If you’re prone to overspending on hand-pressed juices at farmer’s markets and smoothie shops, investing in a juicer could be worth your time and money. This Mueller model is an Amazon favorite, with tens of thousands of ratings and 4.3 stars. Reviewers love it for its sleek, low-footprint design and powerful functionality.

15. Ninja SS101 Foodi Smoothie Bowl Maker & Nutrient Extractor

Make your own insta-worthy açaï bowl from home with this machine.

Speaking of drinkable fruit: Smoothie fiends (myself included) can attest to the fact that having a powerful blender that mashes up frozen foods with ease—without stalling—is a game changer. And this machine from Ninja is the answer to all of those prayers. It’s built specifically with dense, frozen smoothie bowls in mind and has the ability to make homemade nut butters with ease.
