Our Testing Lab loved these 14 products in March

Written by Bre Richey

Here are the top products most worth your time and money

With targeted ads for a life-changing pair of shoes popping up every time you try to shop online and social media pushing sponsored reviews, it’s challenging to know which products live up to their claims. But in March 2023, the BestReviews Testing Lab was busy analyzing countless products to determine which are actually worth your time and money. 

We are real people doing real reviews on Tik-Tok trending products, undiscovered brands and home gadgets to make your life easier. So, whether you’re looking for a drone to capture your adventures or want to know which smartwatch comes out on top, here are the best 14 products the BestReviews Testing Lab loved in March.

In this article: Owala FreeSip Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle, Fishers Finery 100% Pure Mulberry Silk Pillowcase and Dyson V8 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner.

What is the BestReviews Testing Lab?

The BestReviews Testing Lab is constantly inundated with products, and we diligently examine their features and claims in a real-world environment to see how they truly perform. From ease of setup to performance to aesthetics, no category is left undiscovered. 

Similar to the NCAA’s March Madness tournament, we held our own Parch Madness to determine which water bottle reigns supreme. Water bottles went head-to-head in seven testing categories for this bracket-style competition, including whether they’re leak-proof, how long they keep liquids cold, if they fit in a cupholder, how well they withstand daily wear and tear, cost and how easy they are to clean. 

Top water bottle brands, such as the beloved Stanley Cup, Yeti and Hydroflask, were scored on a scale of 1 to 5, and only one bottle came out on top. We also performed a ton of other comparison testing in March to find the best silk pillowcase for your hair or sleep and the top digital photo frame.

The best 14 products we tested this month
