Tovala Smart Oven & Meal Plan
Best Meal-Delivery Service
More than a meal kit, the Tovala Smart Oven & Meal Plan ($299, meal plans from $10 per serving) aims to be a more inclusive and accessible meal-delivery service by eliminating the physical and mental burden of cooking. Every meal is done in 20 minutes or less and arrives fresh — not frozen. Simply pop one in the Smart Oven, and the device does everything for you. It's no one-trick pony, either: the Smart Oven has all the functionality of a standard toaster oven and even a microwave, too.
Crafted with nootropics, adaptogens,
and botanics, Kin Euphorics High Rhode
($39) is a lightly caffeinated, alcohol-free
beverage that's perfect for happy hour.
The earthy, slightly bitter flavor quenches
a craving for a boozy cocktail, but with
none of the hangover — and, in fact,
some potential benefits.

Lazy girlies who want to be juice girlies, step right up. The Nama J2 Cold Press Juicer ($550) takes the cake as the easiest, fastest juicer we've tried. The hopper cuts and loads produce for you so you have to do minimal prep and spits out up to 60 percent more juice than a traditional high-speed model. The cold-press style also means more nutrients make it into every sip — and you get all that goodness.

you done anything about it? Us neither. Switch to a LARQ PureVis Insulated Bottle ($99), and you'll get peace of mind.

Best Kitchen Tool
Press Bee's Wrap ($18) over half an avocado, around the base of your leafy greens, or tucked around a pizza slice, and you'll keep things fresh à la plastic wrap, but without the waste. That's right: when its job is done, you can
rinse and reuse ad infinitum.
