Wirecutter (formerly known as The Wirecutter) is a product review website owned by The New York Times Company. The site focuses on writing detailed guides to different categories of consumer products which recommend just one or two best items in the category. It gains the vast majority of its revenue from affiliate commissions. To prevent bias, the staff who write its reviews are not informed about what commissions, if any, the site receives for different products.
