Best Home Appliances in 2020 (July Reviews)

To help you find the best home products & appliances, we purchased 25 different products across a broad swath of categories and spent 15+ hours testing them within our own homes. While these products each solve a specific need, we measured their ranking based on the overall value they provide to you and your home. As we tested each product, we also considered ease of use, overall durability and design quality and product warranties. Things like the best smart light bulbs can save you money and make life easier.

With all of these features and metrics in mind, we were most impressed with the iRobot Roomba 675 robot vacuum. Vacuuming the floors in your home can be a huge time sink, and the Roomba does that work for you. This robot vacuum intelligently maps out your floor plan so it remembers where it cleans and even works with smart home technology. If you want to learn more about our top pick and the other best home products & appliances we chose for this year, keep reading below.
