“As a first-time homeowner, every year I’m discovering a new essential household item we don’t have but desperately need. This spring, my husband and I realized we were overdue to invest in our first pressure washer to help remove built-up dirt and grime on our patio, stairs, and siding. After lots of research, we determined it would be easier — and quieter — to start with an electric pressure washer.

This QVC electric pressure washer has been unbelievably handy. It’s easy to put together, use, and clean, and a lot more powerful than we expected it to be. We even use it to clean our car and outdoor rug! So, we’re getting a lot of value for the price! If you need to do some deep outdoor cleaning this summer, I highly recommend this little helper! Plus, now through the end of this month (June 2023), new QVC customers get $20 off any $40 purchase — no exclusions – with code QVCNEW2. —Charli Penn, Executive Lifestyle Director

“I'm setting up my outdoor patio as summer gets underway, and I’m so excited about these side tables. I purchased two in dark green to go on either side of a loveseat, and they're the perfect shade of sage — which matches the actual sage nearby perfectly, if I do say so myself! The tables are lightweight, took about 20 minutes to put together (for both), and the tops can be removed as standalone trays. Pick the color that's best for your space, and you won't be disappointed!” —Kelly Dawson, Deputy Editor

Williams Sonoma

“There's something about having a matching set of utensils that makes you feel instantly grown-up. This set of silicone utensils from GreenPan covers most of your cooking and baking needs — and looks great doing so. Each one is made with a single piece of silicone, so there's no hidden nook or cranny that food and oil can find their way into. The silicone is also heat-resistant up to 390°F, so you can rest them on the side of a Dutch oven or skillet without worrying they'll melt.” —Jada Wong, Shopping Director

“Giving you the best of both worlds, this handy HoMedics 2-in-1 tool melds a steamer and iron into an easy-to-use handheld device that’s not only small-space-friendly, but also incredibly easy to travel with, thanks to the included pouch, water cup, and travel case. Offering four settings and a 15-second heat-up design, it’s also safe for use on most fabrics, including silk, rayon, polyester, viscose, synthetic fiber, wool, cashmere, cotton, and linen. Best of all, it offers a versatile design that can be used both horizontally or vertically, making it easy to get into every nook and cranny of your garment.” —Sarah Vazquez, Commerce SEO Editor

Our Place

“Ever since launching the revolutionary Always Pan, Our Place has been rolling out one game-changing kitchen product after another. Now, they’re taking things to the next level with their first-ever countertop appliance: the Wonder Oven, a 6-in-1 air fryer toaster oven that you’re going to want to add to your cooking arsenal. It can broil, roast, air fry, bake, toast, and steam, which means you don’t need multiple appliances and can just rely on this one compact machine. Besides saving countertop and cabinet space, the Wonder Oven also saves time on meal prep. It preheats in under 2.5 minutes and is capable of two-level cooking, with enough space to roast an entire chicken while also air-frying veggies at the same time.” —Mark Marino, Executive Director of Commerce

Cold Picnic

“One of my very favorite modern textile brands, Cold Picnic, just expanded their signature colorful rug collection with a new-machine washable (!!!) Organic Cotton line. All four abstract designs are a definite investment, ranging from $300 for a 4’ by 6’ to $900 for 8’ by 10,’ but count on everyday-life-approved, built-to-last accents that look like borderline pieces of art on your floor.” —Blair Donovan, Shopping Editor
