The Wirecutter

The Wirecutter is a list of the best gadgets—like cameras and TVs—for people who don’t want to take a lot of time figuring out what to get. And the Sweethome is our version of the Wirecutter focused on home goods like bedsheets, blenders, duct tape, and screwdrivers.

Consider it a Billboard for electronics and everyday things. The point is to make it easier for you to buy some great gear quickly and get on with your life.

The choices we’ve made here with our team took weeks or months of research and testing, including interviews and data from the best editorial and user sources around, and the help of engineers, scientists, and experts. Most gear we choose here isn’t top-of-the-line models that are loaded up with junk features or overpriced; most of the ones we’ve picked are of the “great enough” variety, because this is generally where our needs and the right prices smash into each other.

In the end, all our work ends up in the same place: These are the same gadgets we’d recommend to friends and family, and these are the same gadgets we’d choose for ourselves.
