Got trees? They probably need a bit of pruning. Compared with a pair of traditional pruning shears, this little battery-operated chain saw makes the job practically effortless. It's only 4 inches long, and there's a safety lock that has to be pressed before the saw activates. Plus, it comes with a handy carrying case, so you can safely store the device when it's not in use. 

"I'm so glad I didn't spend a bunch of money buying a lot bigger electric saw," one reviewer said. "All I really need to do is cut small branches and saplings. This little guy did it with ease. I was really surprised at the power, to be honest with you. ... It cuts through small saplings like a hot knife through butter. I would most definitely recommend this for small jobs."

"One of my favorite purchases!" another fan raved. "I love to help with yard work and with 3 acres of oak trees, chain saws are a must! But sometimes I just need a little chain saw for the smaller limbs. This fits the bill perfectly! It is so easy to use, and as an almost 50-year-old woman, I like that it's not huge and bulky."

If you can't seem to get your tile grout clean, try this little scrubber — it's like an electric toothbrush, but for cleaning. It does practically all of the heavy lifting with its oscillating head, which scrubs 60 times per second. It also has two cleaning modes — a pulsing motion or continuous scrubbing — and its small design means it'll fit into all of those corners, nooks and crannies that would likely be neglected with a larger brush. Amazon shoppers and Yahoo editors who have tried it are impressed.

"I never write reviews — but I had to write about this amazing little tool," gushed a five-star reviewer. "I just bought a new house and wasn't going to replace kitchen and bathroom floors. I spent an hour or so with this little tool and some grout cleaner, and my old kitchen floors look alive again. I'm shocked. And very, very happy."

Snail mucin is a mucus-like protein that contains multiple compounds — including collagen, elastin and glycolic acid — that experts have long considered beneficial for human skin. This serum contains snail mucin and has over 65,000 five-star reviews, many from buyers who rave about how hydrated and bright their skin feels after use.

Our own beauty editor was skeptical, but tried it: "I saw a noticeable improvement in my skin's texture within the first day and even more so after two weeks. My skin was more supple, my fine lines appeared less deep and my face appeared generally more even and had a sort of glow."

This cream is packed with micro-encapsulated retinol, which penetrates deep into your skin to help boost elasticity and firmness, as well as improve skin texture and tone. Plus, this made-in-the-USA cream is cruelty-, paraben-, dye- and gluten-free and contains no artificial colors. It comes in a huge 16-ounce container and can be used all over your body (including your face). 

"I love how this cream feels," shared one reviewer. "When you pump some into your hand it feels thick like it's gonna end up being greasy, but it's not! The backs of my hands were getting crepey. ... After just a few applications, that is gone!"

There's nothing wrong with a cold sub, but sometimes a hot panini with its warm, gooey cheese really hits the spot. This compact panini maker has a cool-touch handle and nonstick grates, so food won't stick and it's easy to clean. In addition to sandwiches, you could use it to make quesadillas, grill meats and cook veggies.

You, your kids and your grandkids will have a blast playing with this much-loved drone, which easily connects to your phone for taking photos and videos from above. Use it in the yard, or even bring it on your next trip for a bird's-eye view of your summer vacation. And, oh yeah: It can do 360-degree flips! Get it for an unreal 80% off.

One fan raved that you don't have to spend a lot of time on setup before you're flying. "First and foremost, this drone is marketed towards beginners and kids, and it delivers on its promise of being user-friendly. The setup process was straightforward, and I was able to get the drone up and running within minutes of unboxing it."

How nonstick are the pots and pans in this Carote set? Well, you can simply wipe them clean with a damp paper towel if you want. They're also made from eco-friendly white granite, so this entire line of pans is PFOA-free — meaning their nonstick coating is also nontoxic. They're suitable for use on all stoves too, including induction.

"Our pots and pans have to withstand being used for every meal, every day, for as long as possible," shared a shopper. "These pans handle the job. They have excellent heat distribution, are very easy to clean and don't stain (as far as I can tell). I have made several meals with red sauces, curries and saffron rice (notorious for staining) and nothing has stained so far!"

This compact driver is small enough to fit into tight spaces without sacrificing power. When you need to know for sure that something is securely attached, you'll be happy you have this tool.

One happy DIY-er said, "Dependable and powerful. Battery life is great. I was concerned it was a bit smaller than my Rigid, but it has proven to be a true workhorse. Relatively quiet and I like the ease of changing the bits as they just snap in securely."

This Fire TV turns streaming into a cable-like experience. And it's a great deal, but it's for Prime members only leading up to Amazon's big Prime Day sale.

A few highlights: Instead of endlessly scrolling through the guide, you can just say, "Alexa, play Grey's Anatomy" and she’ll make your wish come true. The TV also provides a vivid picture, thanks to its advanced HDR and adaptive brightness — it optimizes the brightness of whatever you're watching with a built-in sensor that detects the lighting of the room. It also provides an "ambient experience," which turns your TV screen into artwork on the wall. 

Over 2,300 customers have left a glowing five-star review at Amazon. "Very happy with this TV, especially for the price," said one shopper. "Great picture quality and colors, enjoying the ambient feature while listening to Amazon music and using Alexa for everything is so convenient."

If you've been pining for a serious, do-it-all Windows laptop that won't break the bank, check out this HP that's about $500 off. Use it for video calls, gaming, streaming movies or working. This model features a whopping 32GB of memory and 1TB of storage. However, it really stands out for its touchscreen and long battery life of 10.75 hours.
