Weber Slate griddle review: A smash burger machine with clever features

A modular side table and digital temperature display provide helpful assistance.

Weber isn’t new to the griddle game, but the company’s second attempt is more refined with plenty of room for customization. The Slate is a great way to smash burgers, cook breakfast and so much more.

Excellent audio and clever home theater tricks, but there’s still work to be done.

The first Sonos headphones are sonically impressive and the soundbar sync feature is easy to use. However, the Ace is expensive and it will be a while before it’s at its full potential.

Dyson 360 Vis Nav review: Superior suction at a steep price

Perfecting the basics comes at the expense of advanced features and affordability.

Dyson’s first robot vacuum may be late on the scene, but it impresses with excellent suction power and remarkable obstacle avoidance. However, its $1,200 will be prohibitively expensive for some.
