The Best Dog Beds

Your dog deserves a good, comfortable bed, but there’s no single best bed for all dogs or all situations. After putting in more than 50 hours of research and testing 13 beds, we think the Majestic Pet Products Suede Bagel Dog Bed is a great option for most pooches. But since not all dogs have the same needs and preferences, we’ve found the best beds...

Spring Is Coming! But Till It Arrives, Here’s the Outdoor Gear to Help You Socialize Safely.

Both cold weather and the pandemic continue to hang on, but if you’ve poked your head out of your den recently, you may have noticed it’s staying a little lighter later and it’s a little warmer out, which means a lot of winter is done. If you’re ready to venture outside for socializing, enjoying patio happy hour, or even dining alfresco, we suggest...

How Selling My Old Clothes on Depop Funded a Trip to Tokyo

Living in New York City as a college student in 2018 during an endless blue-gray winter was like being dropped off at an amusement park with no money to enjoy the rides. I struggled to find things to do that would get me out of my tiny apartment without sucking my wallet dry. Bars, restaurants, and clubs required spending at least $50, so trying to...

It’s the most sturdy, secure, and adaptable...

The Best Gear for Making Pour-Over Coffee

There’s a reason pour-over is the preferred brewing method at high-end cafés: It’s a simple way to make coffee with intricate flavors that you might not get from a machine. For the best results, start with a good dripper. After brewing more than 150 cups, we found the Kalita Wave 185 Dripper to be the most consistent and easy to master. If you want...

The Best High Chairs

A good high chair should be simple to use and, above all, painless to clean. After 40 hours of testing, including cleaning up pureed sweet potato and crushed Goldfish crackers from 13 high chairs, we’re confident that the simple IKEA Antilop will make mealtimes easier than high chairs that cost 10 times as much. We also like the Fisher-Price Healthy...

How to Clean and Care for Wood Cutting Boards

There’s a lot to love about wood cutting boards: They’re a pleasure to chop on and gentler on knife edges. And they’re far more beautiful than plastic ones. The only downside to wood is that it’s prone to warping and so requires more babying than plastic—wood must be hand-washed and oiled regularly. A warped board is a true tragedy in the kitchen. But...

Sohla El-Waylly Buys This Puckery Spice by the Pound

My husband, Ham, grew up in Doha, Qatar, so when I sing classic American rock songs to the dogs, he thinks I’m a musical genius inventing the catchy riffs on the fly. While I’ve introduced him to my favorites, like the AutoZone jingle, he has made me more acquainted with his, like fluffy, garlicky toum, crumbly date-filled ma’amoul, and holly-red sumac.

What Is a VPN and What Can (and Can’t) It Do?
