CNN Underscored continually tests products—whether it’s charcoal grills, first aid kits, or cooling fans—to find the absolute best in each category. Our testing process is rigorous, beginning with spending hours of research to find the best products in each category. Once a product test suite is created, we test and retest each product multiple times under real-world conditions over a period of 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 for the month of July.
Best fan overall
The Honeywell tower fan features a compact footprint, a sleek design, a sturdy base, and eight speed settings, plus it’s quiet and affordable.
Best overall electric toothbrush
Affordable, universal, effective and compatible with many types of Philips replacement brush heads and third parties, the Sonicare 4100 is a great way to improve your oral hygiene routine.
Best overall outdoor wired security camera
The Floodlight Cam Wired Plus from Ring gives you a complete range of outdoor security cameras. It features a projector with ample brightness, easy setup, powerful video and audio quality, and motion alerts that keep you up to date with what’s going on in your home.
Best Overall Wireless Outdoor Security Camera
Arlo’s Essential Spotlight is battery powered, records 1080p video, and can be installed almost anywhere in your home, and is one of the more affordable cameras we tested.
Best overall sports bra
All of our testers found the Nike Dri-Fit Swoosh to be the most comfortable sports bra they’ve ever worn. The soft, breathable, sweat-wicking fabric and simple front-zip design keep everyone comfortable even during intense workouts.
Best stove overall
Nordic Ware’s affordable, durable uncoated aluminum skillet performed just as well as the more expensive grills in our tests and remained consistent without warping, even above their temperature ratings.
Best rice cooker overall
Zojirushi Neuro Fuzzy has always achieved the best results in all of our cooking tests. It cooks perfectly fluffy rice every time and has convenient features that make it a must-have for people who cook and eat rice regularly.
Best overall pizza oven
The only electric pizza oven we tested, the Breville Pizzaiolo was our oven of choice overall due to its consistent, predictable results and even cooking.
Best overall cloud storage app
In our testing, we found Microsoft’s 365 Personal plan for Microsoft OneDrive is the best choice for personal cloud storage if you don’t use any Apple devices.
Best overall first aid kit
The easy-to-use loop-link style design, high-quality products, and all the essentials that the Red Cross recommends mean you’ll be sure you have everything you need and can find it when you need it.
The best laptop from Apple
The MacBook Air M2 is Apple’s best laptop for most people, perfect for everyday multitasking and a decent 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 Mac.
Best Windows Laptop Overall
The Dell XPS 13 offers a beautiful, light, thin and ultra-portable design for work anywhere, a virtually borderless screen that makes content pop, and a powerful 11th generation Intel processor that easily handles most workloads.
