Promising review: "To put it simply, I love this piece! I never knew how much I needed a Dutch oven until I bought this one. I use it all the time for soups and chili and my husband loves when I make sausage gravy for breakfast and I can easily do it all in just this pot. And the color is an added bonus, I just leave it right on one of the shelves in our kitchen, because it’s so cute and because I just use it so often that it’s nice to have handy. I think it’s a great starter Dutch oven for any beginner kitchen.” —stormy

Price: $79.99 (available in two colors)

Promising review: “I bought some stuff and needed a little extra for free shipping, so I threw this in. Well, heck, it sure did the job for my small fridge — so much so that I bought three more! The last one found me a small baggy of grapes that got 'lost' at the back of the fridge. No more random findings! Get one and you'll want another, I promise.” —j

Price: $14.99

Promising review: “Great for fridge/pantry organization! I was trying to get a little more organized with snacks for my kids. These bins worked out well! Great sizes. Will probably end up buying more.” —Liz

Price: $25 for a set of four bins

Promising review: “Awesome product! I was using other cleaners of all types. This is the best for my glass shower. I have hard water and the spots and soap scum was not getting cleaned with other products. With the first application, this cleaned everything up and now my shower is sparkling!” —MEL

Price: $6.49 for a 60-ounce bottle

Promising review: “As someone who struggles with severe constipation, I consider this a lifesaver. I bought this when I moved out and I have not had trouble going. I’m not sure why this works so well but I notice a huge difference when I don’t use it.” —Target reviewer

Price: $24.99

Promising review: “I was very skeptical that a bidet for less than $40 would actually work, but it does! I know there are super fancy ones out there, but I can't afford those. This does the job just fine and leaves me feeling so clean and fresh. Sometimes I need to make tiny adjustments to my own position to be sure I get the right coverage. I love it and everyone that tries it loves it too.” —Target reviewer

Price: $39.99

Promising review: “So amazing – like a cloud to sleep. No back issues at all sleeping on this bed. Sleeps cool as well. Shipping was so fast, as well — great purchase!” —millhouse

Price: $395+ (available for shipping in sizes twin—California king)

Promising review: “Looks great in my bathroom. Perfect size and I like that it’s divided. One side for towels one for clothing. Very sturdy also.” —Carla

Price: $89.99

Promising review: “Nice tool set for the price! Bought this for my condo, has all the tools I needed to make quick fixes around it. Happy with the value.” —Jacques S

Price: $21.99

Promising review: “Fell in love with the design, and now, after using them for a while, love them even more. They don’t scratch easily — with kids, this was important to me. Great quality for sure. Highly recommend!” —PamBC

Price: $80

Promising review: “Love it! Excellent quality, beautiful design and looks like it cost much more. Very easy to assemble. Great MCM look!” —Marty B

Price: $130+ (available with and without included LED light bulbs)

Promising review: “Perfect size! Did not need a large file cabinet, so this one is the perfect size. It is very well made – not like the typical retail store file cabinets. The draws open and close smoothly, like a commercial file cabinet. Has both file folder storage and a draw to put the other things which I normally use at my desk. Bright white color so goes with just about any décor. Has casters which if needed can be locked (two of them).” —Donna

Price: $150

Promising review: “Great desk! I bought one for my home office and liked it so much I bought another one for my husband. It's sturdy and has enough space for our dual monitors and laptops. Plus storage space on the shelves. I put fabric bins on the shelves to act as drawers.” —NCMUA

Price: $144 (originally $180)

Promising review: “I love this table! This is the perfect size for my apartment, and I love the storage it provides with the lift top and the bottom shelves. The lift top is awesome for when I work from home or for when we eat on the couch. It wasn't too difficult to put together, but it did take a couple of hours. I had been looking at similar tables elsewhere to that cost at least twice as much. I'm very happy with the value and function at this price point!” —JamieJ

Price: $269.99+ (available in two colors)

Promising review: “Quality! I wanted to add some warmth to my home office and love the brown leather accents. The adjustable arms go high enough to support my elbows, which is rare! I do wish the arms turned in — they are pretty wide. The bottom and back are hard, but still comfortable. This was easy to put together.” —JM333

Price: $179.99+ (originally $199.99; available in two colors)

Promising review: “THIS IS THE BOMB. Let me preface with the fact that I never leave reviews. But this was one of our first pricier purchases for our first home. I am a very clean person. I use my broom and dustpan every day, vacuumed with my old vacuum, and steam mopped. Clean floors are a must. When I used this for the first time, I had done all of that prior. I wasn't expecting to pull up as much as I did. Absolutely UNREAL. Attachments provided will reach every single surface in your home. It is so lightweight and made my home look visibly cleaner which I didn't think was possible. BUY IT!!!!!” —linds

Price: $169.99 (originally $199.99)

Promising review: “Very happy! We added this to our kitchen table for extra seating. It is working perfectly; our twin 5-year-olds love sitting on it and it's solid and sturdy to their climbing/kneeling/bouncing. We are storing their art supplies in it so they can now have everything at the table all the time. My favorite thing about this bench is that it doesn't slam down — it must be closed with the same force that it is opened with. This means that my son can open the bench and it remains open while he digs around. I don't have to worry about little fingers in the way, and I also don't have to help! (5-year-olds don't want help with anything.) It's a good-looking, comfortable, sturdy bench that I'm happy I purchased.” —Jaye J

Price: $180 (available for shipping in the colors Gray and Spice)

Promising review: “Love these curtains. I live in a high-rise, and the sunrise has always been an issue. These curtains have made it so that I can never tell what time of day it is when they are closed! Highly recommend!” —steveod13

Price: $17.99+ per panel (available in five sizes and seven colors)

Promising review: “Williams Sonoma vibes! These are great towels. Good quality for the price and I love all the colors. I got a pretty blue and it’s a nice pop in my white and grey kitchen. Absorbent and already have washed well.” —Virginia T

Price: $13 for a set of five (available in four colors)

Promising review: “Works great! I’ve been using this for about a month now and it’s the best steamer I’ve had in a very long time. Easy to use, both upright and like a regular iron. I never use my regular iron now and I iron lots of stuff. It has an attachment to crease pants. This is a great product. Getting another one as a gift to my sister. We’ve both had expensive steamers in the past but this works better. Highly recommend it.” —JD

Price: $79.99

Promising review: “I don't have any pets, but I do have a toddler. Red Jello was smashed in the carpet and this product got the red stain out with ease. The scrubber helps a lot. Did not bleach the carpet, just cleaned it.” —plum728

Price: $5.99

Promising review: “Beautiful! Perfect for a small space in our bedroom.” —Frani

Price: $111.74+ (originally $148.99+; available in two colors)

Promising review: "Hotel vibes! Great towels, thick and plush. Definitely glad I paid a little more for the thicker towel. Love them!" —taylormay

Price: $14+ (available in bath towel and bath sheet sizes and 14 colors; also available as hand towels and washcloths)

Promising review: “LIFE CHANGING. My very first air fryer I have ever tried or owned and I can’t believe I waited this long to get one! This thing is amazing! Like, life-changing. It cuts cooking time in half, doesn’t make the house smell from cooking, it makes everything taste better, and it’s seriously the best thing. I can’t stop raving about it. I keep looking at what else I can air fry. Don’t hesitate and just get this. Target has a great deal on it and I am so, so happy. It’s like space-age technology — I am blown away by what this can do and it’s so easy. No complaints. Only wish I got one sooner. So go get one now! I never write reviews but I had to for this one. I even called my mom after using it and told her about it. And I tweeted about it. I can’t stop taking about it to my boyfriend. Can’t wait to air fry more things!” —Angel

Price: $62.99 (originally $69.99)

Promising review: “Wonderful wine pump! Works beautifully. Where have you been all my life Highly recommend it. Worth it. Just a few dollars more than an ordinary wine pump.” —Mickey

Price: $18.99

Promising review: “An updated classic in all the right ways! This is my third Cuisinart coffeemaker, and the best one I’ve had yet. I love the larger 14-cup carafe (without sacrificing counter space), the ‘Bold’ button (for those of us who prefer a more flavorful brew), and the temperature control so that your coffee can be as hot (or cool) as desired. I’m also excited about the ‘Clean’ feature and hopeful it will keep my new machine in sparkling condition for many years to come. Very easy to use and, as an added bonus, it’s very nice to look at. An all-around terrific buy!” —LKP

Price: $99.99
