Whether you're a beginner or an experienced home chef, a set of sharp knives is essential. It might sound contradictory, but the sharper the knife, the less likely you are to cut yourself. A dull blade requires more pressure and can often slip rather than cut right through. Rest assured your knives are good to go with this Calphalon self-sharpening knife set. It comes with an 8-inch Chef's knife, 6-inch utility knife, 5-inch santoku knife, a 3.5-inch paring knife, a set of kitchen shears and a knife block. And when you slide each knife into the block, it will automatically sharpen (thanks to the built-in sharpeners).

"Why haven't I bought these before?! I could slice a single hair in two if I wanted to," said one impressed Amazon reviewer. "I had a recipe the other day where I had to dice some bacon before I cooked it. Have you ever done that? It's crazy hard and annoying. These knives cut right through that bad boy. I was dicing bacon like a boss."

"These knives have a self-sharpener in them so they stay sharp with every use! We've had them for a bit and we have no complaints," said another. "The handles are not too heavy but are sturdy and thick."

"I'm in love with this set!" shared a third fan. "I like the built-in sharpener feature. You don’t have to worry about a dull cut! I make sure my children do not use nor wash these knives because they are hazardous."

More than 240,000 Amazon shoppers give them a five-star rating, and one "notoriously picky" person wrote: "These sheets are like a soft lullaby in fabric form, cool to the touch, and an absolute dream in the swampy humidity that tries to suffocate me down South. I'm definitely snagging more in every color of the rainbow!"

If you're in the market for a bra limits bouncing and makes your chest appear a bit smaller overall, this is Amazon's No. 1 bestseller and Yahoo's best minimizer bra. The full-coverage bra can minimize your bustline by up to 1.5 inches. Along with a built-in underwire, it also has non-padded cups that comfortably cover and support your breasts.

"I like that with these cups you're not bulging out!" said one shopper. "It has enough cup to hold contents and therefore a shirt looks nice and smooth on. This is my favorite bra. It's durable, has good lift, great coverage, comfortable, pretty and the price is fantastic! I'm going to order several more."

Head outside in Amazon's No. 1 selling hiking pants for women. This cargo style has plenty of pockets to carry bug spray, a small water bottle and your favorite SPF. They have drawstrings on the ankles and come in three lengths so you can find your perfect fit. They also come in over 10 colors.

"These were perfect for my hike on Mount Rainier!" said one fan. "Breatheable, comfortable, and waterproof as advertised."

This bodysuit is an affordable option if you're looking to smooth your figure and add tummy control. It's made from 80% nylon and 20% spandex, which perfectly balances the stretch and compression. So what makes shoppers rave about this pick? Most reviewers compare the smoothing effects to those of Skims bodysuits. Yes, shapewear is that good.

"The way this bodysuit snatches me is insane," said one reviewer. "I wore it and everyone thought it was a Skims. ... Don't be alarmed by how small it looks when you first get it as it stretches very well and then absorbs the body. The waist gets really snatched and the bottom can be adjusted if you want your hips to pop or if you want to be a bit more tucked in."

Need a new pair of classic white kicks? Look no further than Keds' iconic Champions. They're the brand's original sneakers and debuted more than a century ago. People have loved them ever since — including legendary actress Marlo Thomas

"I've been wearing them forever and have them in a million colors," she told New York Magazine. "I wear my white ones the most, usually when I'm walking to the store or just loafing around. They're very comfortable and aren't cumbersome. So many shoes now have a life of their own, but I like these because they're more streamlined."

Get them as low as $37, but note that the price may vary based on color and size.

By land or by sea, these Chacos have got you. As suggested by the name, they're made to be extra comfy with built-in arch support and the brand's signature Luvseat footbeds. Score them during REI's 4th of July sale for over half off! 

"I have two pairs of the Mega Z cloud sandals and I prefer them over the regular Z strap sandals by far," one person said. "They are perfect. I hope they never stop making the wider strap option because I don't think the regular strap has the support to hold the heavier sole on my foot as well."

If the heat is getting to you, it may be a good idea to invest in a window air conditioner. This one can cool off small rooms up to 150 square feet, making it great for dorm rooms, apartments or anywhere that needs an extra punch of chill in your home. 

More than 6,400 Walmart shoppers give it a five-star rating and sing its praises. "This unit was very easy to install and within 10 minutes of initially turning it on, our room was significantly cooler," said one buyer. "It blows such ice-cold air we haven't even attempted to turn it on past 5 (it goes up to 7). I'm looking forward to the summer now. This is probably the best one I've owned so far."

This Insignia is ideal for cord-cutters since it turns streaming into a cable-like experience. And it's a great deal — this is the lowest price it's dropped to all year. 

A few highlights: Alexa is included in the remote, so instead of endlessly scrolling through the guide, you can just say, "Alexa, play Your Honor" and she’ll make your wish come true. Compare this to other TVs that come with Roku inside but lack voice assistant features out of the box. The TV also has vivid colors and exceptional high-definition picture quality, rare at this price point.

Over 9,000 customers have left a glowing five-star review at Amazon. "It's even better than I could dream of for the price," said one reviewer. "I was amazed at the quality of the picture. Went to F1TV for the ultimate test. Outstanding! Even better in the evening for outdoor movie time. Of course, it is not a $5K TV, but the picture and sound were way beyond what I expected for the price."

"I bought the 50-inch model, and my roommate bought the 43-inch model, and we're both awestruck," wrote an experienced gamer. "The picture quality is fantastic, the audio quality is awesome and it's not too heavy."

Weber's Spirit II propane gas grill is a compact, no-frills gas grill that gets the job done — and then some. It has two stainless steel burners that let you carve out hot and cold zones for more targeted results. There's a built-in lid thermometer for gauging temperatures, two wheels for added mobility and two side trays — one of them collapsible — for creating prep space. Yahoo named it one of the best grills for 2024!

"Love this grill," said one Amazon shopper. "For years we always had large grills and finally decided to buy something smaller. It works so well for us and it is so much easier to take care of. The igniter works great and it is very sturdy, which allows us to move it in and out of our building with ease."
