"The material feels very sturdy and is also soft enough to still be comfortable and not scratchy," said a five-star fan. "I could easily fall asleep in this thing."

"Perfect for smoothie-making," said a happy customer. "I use it on frozen solid fruit all the time and it doesn't have a problem. Only three speeds and a power button, super easy to use. Comes with a tamper stick that is perfectly made to put through the top and mash things down without hitting the blades. Very handy and not something I have seen before."

This handy workhorse serves as an air fryer and dehydrator, allowing you to whip up plenty of dishes in it. An easy touch screen, basket large enough to fit two pounds of fries and four preset options make it easy to cook.

"Oh my goodness, I want to use this for everything," a satisfied shopper said. "I like to think of this as a personal sized convection oven on steroids. Veggie burgers crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Roasted vegetables, fish sticks, chicken, burgers, fries, fish all with about 30-40% shorter cook times than the oven and only a three minute preheat time."

The Kadee II women's flip flops are lightweight and water-friendly, so you can take them to the beach, pool, brunch and wherever else. The shoes feature Croslite foam for extra cushioning and comfort.

"These are the most comfortable flip flops I have ever worn," said a five-star fan. "The side where your foot sits has a texture that seems to massage my feet. It feels great! They seem to support my arch well. The piece that goes between my toes is perfect. Usually when I get a new pair of flip flops that piece irritates my foot but not these. They were total comfort from the first second I slipped into them."

You can style, dry and add volume to your hair in one go with the help of this cult-favorite tool. The drying brush features ionic technology to smooth your hair and reduce frizz. Enjoy three heat levels and speed settings.

"Y’all, I can’t make this up. I despise blow drying and styling my hair because it’s so long and freakishly thick. It takes me over an hour with a normal hairdryer to dry and style when I do put forth the effort to do so... which isn’t (wasn’t) often. Ponytails were my go-to 99% of the time," a happy customer said. "20 minutes. That’s how long it takes me to do my hair from wet out of the shower, to straight and sleek locks using this thing. Best purchase I’ve made this year!"
