The best products we tested in July: Charcoal grills, first aid kits and more
Written by admin

CNN Underscored is constantly testing products like charcoal grills, first aid kits or cooling fans to find the absolute best in each category. Our testing process begins with spending hours of research to find the best products in each category. After creating a test pool of products, we repeatedly test and retest each product in real-world settings over several weeks or even months.

This year, we’ve already tested dozens of products, from electric toothbrushes to pizza ovens to outdoor home security cameras, to find the best products you need to improve your life. Here are the winning products from July.

Best charcoal grill overall

Charcoal grills have consistently given us the best results, and the classic Weber Original Premium Kettle Grill is our favorite. It’s easy to use, the simple vent makes temperature control easy, and it’s also convenient.

best fan overall

The Honeywell tower fan has a small size and elegant design, a sturdy base and eight speed settings, plus it’s quiet and affordable.

Best electric toothbrush overall

Affordable, full-featured, effective and compatible with many Philips and third-party replacement brush heads, the Sonicare 4100 is a great way to improve your oral hygiene routine.

Best wired outdoor security camera overall

Ring’s Floodlight Cam Wired Plus brings you the complete outdoor security camera package. It features a projector with wide brightness, easy installation, solid video and audio quality, and motion alerts that alert you to what’s going on around your home.

Best wireless outdoor security camera overall

Arlo’s Essential Spotlight Camera is battery-powered, records 1080p video, can be mounted almost anywhere in your home, and is among the most affordable cameras we’ve tested.

Best sports bra ever

All of our testers rated the ultra-supportive Nike Dri-Fit Swoosh as the most comfortable sports bra they’ve ever worn. The soft, breathable, sweat-wicking fabric and simple zipper front design kept everyone comfortable even during high-octane workouts.

Best baking sheet overall

The durable, affordable Nordic Ware uncoated aluminum pan performed as well as more expensive sheet pans in our shed, staying flat without warping even above rated temperature.

Best rice cooker overall

Zojirushi Neuro Fuzzy consistently scored the best in all of our food tests. It cooked perfectly fluffy rice every time and has handy features that are essential for people who cook and eat rice regularly.

Best pizza oven overall

The only electric pizza oven we tested, the Breville Pizzaiolo was our favorite due to its predictable, consistent results and even cooking.

Best cloud storage software overall

In our testing, we found Microsoft OneDrive’s Microsoft 365 Personal plan to be the best personal cloud storage option if you don’t use any Apple devices.

Best first aid kit overall

An easy-to-use ring binder design, high-quality products and all the essentials recommended by the Red Cross mean you’ll be sure you have everything you need and you’ll be able to find it when you need it.

best apple laptop

The MacBook Air M2 is the best Apple laptop for most people, perfect for multitasking and a good amount of gaming and visual work. It’s the fastest laptop for the money, and an especially big upgrade if you’re coming from an Intel-powered Mac.

Best Windows laptop overall

The Dell XPS 13 features a beautiful, light, slim and highly portable design for working anywhere, a nearly borderless display that makes content popular, and a powerful 11th generation Intel processor that can handle most workloads with ease.
