Get the gift you really wanted

Get the gift you really wanted

Although Boxing Day once had an entirely different meaning, today it’s one of the busiest days at the mall as folks return or exchange gifts that weren’t quite right, or shop for newly discounted items. Either way, Consumer Reports can help you find the best buys and top performing models from our tests of hundreds of products.

In addition, the Home team, which covers everything for your house including appliances and remodeling products, is now on Facebook, where we highlight new products and news from our labs in Yonkers. Today, for example,  we’re featuring the hottest refrigerators of the year including one that dispenses hot water and another that makes sparkling water. In addition to those novel features, they were champs at their main job of keeping your food fresh and at the right temperature.

On our Home and Appliance Facebook page, you’ll also discover all the disgusting things we buy to test cleaning products, see the crazy patterns robotic vacuums make, and learn the latest paint color trends, among many other things. There’s also some savvy gift-giving advice, which you can use and peruse before taking that not-so-perfect present back to the store. So check our Facebook page as well as the results of our tests of appliances and remodeling products.
