How We Choose Which Products to Review

We select appliances and kitchen equipment based on market research, unique product specifications, and consumer popularity. We look for products that are overall winners and ones that will add unique and specialized value to your kitchen.

How We Purchase Products to Test

We purchase all products at our own expense from Amazon and other online shopping platforms. We do not accept freebies and have no preferential relationship with any manufacturer or retailer.

Like any regular consumer, we sometimes have to deal with product malfunctions, replacements, and customer service lines which we also report on in our product reviews. 

How We Standardize Our Testing

We don’t waste time on random tests to gain attention. Instead, we develop and apply standardized test methodologies for fair comparisons between products. Trial tests are carried out to confirm their feasibility and validity. Once these tests are finalized, all appliances or tools are put through identical testing procedures.

After testing, we continue to use selected products in our own kitchen. In this way we create a continuous feedback loop which helps us refine and improve our test methodologies.

How We Minimize Errors and Bias 

Through the Review Process, our product reviewers work hand in hand with a team of media and technical specialists—known as an RTR Team or the ‘Research, Testing, and Review Team’. To eliminate personal bias and human error, all our tests and evaluations involve at least three team members. 

In addition, all test results are accompanied by photographic and video evidence for validation. We also provide details of how we test and evaluate each product range.

Our test reports are presented in verifiable and easy to compare formats. Notwithstanding our editorial recommendations, you still get all the information you need to make an informed purchasing decision.

How We Make Money

We make money from affiliate links and their associated commissions, which support our testing work. This means when you make a purchase through our links, we may receive a commission with no affect to the original price or additional cost to you.
