The Top 50 Best Sprinklers for Your Lawn & Garden

Sprinklers might not typically be thought of as an unsafe household item, but the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) estimates there were more than 2,273 reported cases of injuries to children under the age of 18 caused by garden hoses, nozzles, or sprinklers that were treated in hospitals in the United States in 2014.

The number of actual injuries is likely to be quite higher than this, as the data from the CPSC reporting system only looked at those injuries which resulted in medical treatment at one of 100 participating hospitals, and minor injuries were likely treated at home or another medical treatment facility not included in the reporting data.

It’s important to teach children to be mindful of playing in areas where sprinklers are located, in order to prevent trips, sprains, and other injuries. Whereas oscillating sprinklers are generally suitable for children to play in during hot weather, some pulsating models can have a powerful stream that may injure a small child and should be avoided. Your lawn and garden’s watering needs will likely determine the style of sprinkler you purchase.

Greenhouse Buying Guide: The 40 Best Greenhouses

Greenhouses are an excellent way to help extend your growing season, protecting plants from extreme temperatures and the elements, as well as for starting plants from seeds. They are generally quite reasonably priced and are made from durable materials that should give you several years of use.

While there are many benefits to greenhouses, it’s important to remember watering will be an issue, as the natural rains will not reach your plants, and overheating can be an issue in extreme summer heat.

There are three main types of greenhouses:

Cold frame, which are bottomless and can easily be moved. They are ideal for the early spring and late fall seasons to help protect and encourage plants to grow that would otherwise perish due to cooler temperatures.

Starter, which are small to medium in size and ideal for starting seedlings and hardening off plants which will be transplanted to your gardens.

Grower, which are the largest and can be used to start seedlings, harden off plants, grow crops to harvest, and even cure them for storage.

No matter which type you purchase you’ll want to consider if there is adequate size, ventilation, insulation, and durability for your needs. All of these variables will ultimately impact the final price of your unit.

The Top 50 Best Weeders for Trimming Your Yard

While very few children under the age of 18 are injured due to use of weed whackers and other power lawn trimmers, it is important to keep a few safety precautions in mind while using.

Never allow children to operate a weeder. Given their size and weight, most weeders cannot be operated by young children. Be sure to explain that they must never put hands or feet in line of the cutting implement.

If using an electric model, ensure the extension cord you’re using is rated for outdoor use and that it’s plugged into an outlet with a GFCI to prevent electrical injuries. If using a gas model, ensure the engine has cooled completely before refuelling. Start and run your gas-powered weeder outside and not in your garage in order to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.

You should wear eye and hearing protection when operating your weed whacker, especially gas-powered models which can be very loud.

Always read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for setup, use and cleaning of your weeder, and don’t hesitate to contact them if you should have a question about something specific that isn’t covered in your user manual.

With the above information in mind, in no particular order here are 50 of the weeders that we consider best, based on available features and average customer ratings and reviews.

Gazebo Buying Guide: The 50 Best Gazebos for Your Backyard

Gazebos can be a practical way to expand your outdoor living space, and provide your family with shelter from the elements. They are excellent for providing coverage over dining areas, hot tubs, and even outdoor grills.

There are a few different types of gazebo styles to choose from, mainly canvas top and hard top. There are also those which set up and collapse in just minutes and are easily portable, and those that are hardscaped into your yard for a more permanent solution.

They can be made from wood, metal, plastic, or other materials, and it’s really a matter of personal preference and budget which you choose. You’ll also want to consider the size and shape of the model you like — there are square, rectangular, round and even 6- and 8-sided models.

Before installing, you’ll want to check your local bylaws regarding gazebos, and confirm that the ground beneath where you’re planning to install it is stable and features adequate drainage.

The 50 Safest Booster Seats for Your Child

When properly installed and used correctly, booster seats can reduce the risk for serious injury for children aged 4 to 8 years by 45% compared with seat belt use alone, which makes their use imperative.

Research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that more than 127,250 children aged 12 and under were injured in motor vehicle crashes in 2013. The CDC also found that “in one year, more than 618,000 children ages 0-12 rode in vehicles without the use of a child safety seat or booster seat or a seat belt at least some of the time.” As a result, 38% of the children who died in a crash in 2013 were found not to be properly buckled.

A study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that up to 72% of nearly 3,500 observed car and booster seats were installed incorrectly or misused in such a way they might increase a child’s risk of injury during a crash. If you’re unsure if your child’s car seat or booster seat is installed correctly, you can find a child passenger safety technician at this site, or visit your nearest fire station or police station for guidance.

Aside from Florida and South Dakota, there are 48 states, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, that require booster seats for youngsters who are still too small to use an adult seat belt safely. There are standards set by the NHTSA under the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) that provide minimum safety standards for all booster seats sold in the USA. No matter what your budget, you can rest assured your child is protected with these standards, with any additional safety features considered an added bonus.

The 40 Safest and Best Dishwashers

While dishwashers aren’t typically considered to be a particularly dangerous item — the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) estimates there were less than 50 injuries to children under the age of 18 caused by dishwashers that were treated in hospital in the United States in 2014 — there are still some important safety considerations to keep in mind.

Firstly, you’ll want to ensure your unit is installed properly with the appropriate water and electrical hookups in order to prevent flooding, water damage, and electrical fires.

Second, you’ll want to ensure if your unit does not have a child lock, that you load any sharp cutlery facing downwards of have the rack out of reach of little hands.

Beyond that, you’ll want to consider if you need a small countertop unit, a portable unit, or a built-in model in order to meet your cleaning needs. Countertop units are ideal for individuals or those who don’t generate a lot of dishes in a day, while portable models are ideal for those living where space is at a premium.

Several features that are nice to have include a wide selection of wash cycles, drying cycles, adjustable racks, delay wash, a stainless steel tub, and filters.

With the above tips and information in mind, in no particular order here are 40 of the dishwashers we consider the best, based on available features and average customer ratings and reviews.

The 40 Best Freezers for Home and Garage Use

While you might not consider a freezer to be a particularly dangerous item, it is still important to keep in mind that freezers can and do cause injury.

Possible injuries that can be caused by a freezer include bruises, cuts, pinches, electrical injuries including electrocution and fires, burns from extreme temperatures, coolant chemicals and coils, poisoning from inhaling coolant chemicals, and even crush injuries.

Besides physical injuries caused by falls, pinches and more, it is worth noting that food-borne illnesses can also be directly attributed to improper freezer use or function. In fact, the CDC estimates about 1 in 6 Americans (or 48 million people) get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die of foodborne diseases each and every year, which makes ensuring your freezer is working properly of the utmost importance. Young children, pregnant women and the elderly are all at increased risk of contracting a foodborne illness.

Here are some things to keep in mind when purchasing and using your freezer:

When purchasing

For the most part, safety standards for freezers have been created by a mix of consumer groups, government agencies, producers, retailers, and suppliers and are completely voluntary on the part of manufacturers. Look for a sticker on your freezer that tells you it’s been approved by CSA, ASTM, ANSI, UL, CPSC or some other such safety association. Be cautious of purchasing a freezer made in China, as regulatory standards are much different there than in the United States.

Other safety features to look for include anti-tip technology (for upright models), and sealed cooling and electrical components. Locks can help keep children safe as well, and are a nice feature to have.

If your freezer came with a warranty or registration card, be sure to complete the form and mail it in to the manufacturer. This way, you’ll be notified of any recalls or other safety information in the event of a problem with your model. Surveys done by Consumer Reports National Research Center show most people seldom or never take this essential safety step.

Ensure you’ve made allowances for any space or other clearance requirements necessary for safe installation. Ideally your freezer should have its own dedicated spot on your electrical circuit in order to prevent power overloads and other electrical problems.

If you have young children in your home, installing aftermarket freezer safety products such as an appliance latch or lock can help keep them safe.

When operating

Experts recommend storing food in freezers set to 0°F or below in order to prevent harmful bacteria from growing. Know that freezer temperature can fluctuate depending on the season, so you may want to adjust the controls as necessary to ensure the interior temperature stays at 0°F or below.

If your freezer does not come with one already installed, look at purchasing an aftermarket freezer thermometer in order to ensure it is keeping food at a safe temperature.

Clean up any spills immediately to prevent the growth of bacteria and risk of foodborne illness.

Always read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installation, use and cleaning of your freezer, and don’t hesitate to contact them if you should have a question about something specific that isn’t covered in your user manual.

When cleaning

Ensure there is adequate ventilation before you begin cleaning your freezer. The fumes from many household cleaners can be toxic and make you ill.

Ensure any residue from cleaning products is thoroughly removed before you use your freezer to store food again.

Ensure the freezer is turned off before you clean any electrical components or defrost the unit to clean it.

Choice of Model

There are two choices when it comes to purchasing a standalone freezer: upright or chest. Upright freezers look just like a refrigerator and stand upright, with a door that swings open to either the left or right. They will have storage space in the door and on shelves. Upright freezers are popular for their ease of finding and storing your food, but they can cost more to operate than a chest-style freezer. No matter which model you choose, you’ll want to ensure you’ve measured accurately to ensure it will fit in your space, and that your electrical can support its operation.

Chest-style freezers feature a lid on top with a deep compartment to store your food in. They will usually come with a basket (or two) to keep items easily accessible at the top of the freezer. Chest freezers may be more economical to operate, but can be difficult for some people to reach into the bottom of to remove items.

With the above tips and information in mind, in no particular order here are 40 of the freezers that we consider safest, based on available features and average customer ratings and reviews.

The 40 Best Washers and Dryers for Doing Laundry

Modern washers and dryers have made light work of what used to be a tedious chore only 100 years ago. But with so many features and options available, how do you find a model that’s right for you? Here are some things to consider when you’re shopping for a washer and/or dryer:

Washers

There are several types of washers that will suit different family’s needs, and it’s important to consider which features are important to you when shopping for a washer. Load size, soil settings, sanitize cycles, delay wash and steam clean are all features to consider when you’re comparing models. Ensure you measure accurately to find a model that fits your space and that your electrical is up to snuff.

Top Load Washing Machines

Top loading washer models are generally less expensive than their front loading counterparts, but they use more water in order to clean your clothes, since the drum must fill to the selected level before the wash cycle begins. They tend not to remove as much water from clothes during the spin cycle, so drying times can be longer.

Front Load Washing Machines

Front loading washer models will generally use less water than their top loading counterparts, but some consumers complain they do not clean as effectively as top loading models. Another frequent complaint is their longer wash times, though they do remove most of the water from your clothes which results in shorter drying times. Of note is that you will need to use an HE-approved laundry detergent when washing your clothes, as they produce less suds and are better for the machine.

HE

High efficiency (HE) washer models offer all the cleaning power of a classic washing machine, but with built-in energy saving benefits. An HE washing machine will use less water than its standard counterpart in order to clean your clothes, and will often use less energy. Of note is that you will need to use an HE-approved laundry detergent when washing your clothes, as they produce less suds and are better for the machine.

Dryers

Ensure you measure accurately to find a model that fits your space and that your electrical is up to snuff. You’ll also want to ensure venting is done correctly. Features to consider on both kinds of models include sensor dry, time dry, the various settings, and even a ‘keep fresh’ option which will tumble your clothes for a set amount of time after they’re dry in order to reduce wrinkling.

Gas Dryers

Gas-powered dryers perform as well as the more popular electric models, but run on your gas supply rather than your home’s electrical (though they’ll still need a 120V outlet). They tend to be slightly more expensive than electric models, but can save on the cost of operation over the long term.

Electric Dryers

Electric dryers are the most popular kind, and are easy to install since they only require a 240V outlet.

With the above tips and information in mind, in no particular order here are 20 of the washers and 20 of the dryers that we consider safest, based on available features and average customer ratings and reviews.

The 35 Best Smart Home Security Systems for 2016

Home security has come a long way over the years, with today’s models featuring all the bells and whistles that allow for them to be fully integrated with home networking systems and smart devices. Of course you’ll want to ensure that whatever system you purchase is compatible with any mobile device you plan to use it with, but there are a few other things to consider before purchasing a smart home security system, including:

Alert System

Do you want motion-based or sound alerts or alerts for all activities? Email or push-based? They can also be set to provide audible notifications to help ensure you never miss an activity.

Camera Features

If your smart home security system comes with any camera(s) you’ll want to consider the features available on them. Our complete Outdoor Security Camera Buying Guide will help you find something that works for your needs.

Sensors

When looking at a smart home security system you’ll want to consider the included cameras, sensors, and alarms. Such considerations will depend on the size of your home and how much coverage you desire. There are window sensors, water leak sensors, those that detect smoke and carbon monoxide, and many more. Many systems will even include an audible alarm to deter intruders and alert anyone in the area to a break-in.

Installation

The Top 50 Baby Cribs: Tips for Choosing the Best

Newborns can sleep up to 20 hours a day, so you want to ensure the crib you choose is a solid and sturdy model.

In the past, drop-sided cribs were a major safety concern for the potential to pinch and trap digits and arms, as well as the potential for dropping when older children pushed on them if not properly secured. As such, drop-sided cribs have been banned for sale in the US since 2011.

It’s important that parents always practice safe sleeping habits including putting your newborn on their back to sleep and not adding anything extra to the sleeping area, including sheets, stuffed animals, pillows or blankets. Crib bumpers are also unnecessary, especially for infants who cannot move around on their own. Even though they are still commonly included in many crib bedding sets, they pose both a suffocation and strangulation hazard. The American Academy of Pediatrics discourages their use as it may be a potential SIDS risk.
