The Kai 5210 8-Inch Dressmaking Shears are the best all-around household scissors because they’re light and they cut with the smoothest snip of any scissors we tested. They handled cardboard, blue jeans, and even picture-hanging wire without issue. For the kitchen, the OXO Good Grips Kitchen and Herb Scissors are the best for most people because their micro-serrated blade grips meat while the other blade cleanly cuts through—something the competition doesn’t do.
The Tribest Slowstar is the best and most versatile home juicer. It’s also the slowest, which is actually a good thing because it extracts the maximum amount of nutrients from produce and yields more juice than nearly every other model we tested. Plus, there’s a 10-year warranty on parts and the motor.
