Licensing And Awards

By getting our hands dirty and doing product research in-house, reviewing and analyzing customer feedback, and talking to interview industry professionals, our team of independent experts chooses products they think are best for most people in different categories. 

Editors Pick: This badge is awarded to products that are usually cutting edge or offers the most value according to our Editors. These products might not be affordable for most people but for those who appreciate craftsmanship, engineering, and quality usually go by this recommendation.

Top Pick: These are usually people’s favorite, most reliable, and most reviewed products earn this badge from our editors. The focus here is on recommending products that stand out from the crowd and move the needle in terms of price, performance, and quality. These are products suitable for most people.

Budget Pick: Our position is that a good product does not always have to be expensive. Our budget picks are for people that want the best for less. These products are selected based on their price to performance ratio and after relative analysis of other products in the same category.

If you are the brand or manufacturer behind our Editor’s Pick, Top Pick, or Budget Pick, you can apply to license our award logo, company logo, or editorial text to use in your marketing, advertising, press, or advertorial. Please email [email protected] if you are interested to share your story with the media or if you have another press inquiry than the ones we mentioned.
