Think of the classics in your life: your favorite sneakers, the sweatshirt you wear over and over again, or the products you keep buying when they go empty. Why do you keep reaching for them?

After all, these items come with an implicit thumbs-up from thousands of figurative product-testers out there — the reviewers before you who voted with their wallets to make these best-sellers popular, surfacing them to the top of Amazon's lists so you don't have to fumble around in the dark.

If Amazon's rankings aren't enough for you, in most cases, you won't have to just take their word for it, either: Read these reviews your new friends leave behind, and judge for yourself how these favorites made it to the top. You never know: one of these products might just change your life.

Presto Electric Griddle, $37, Amazon

Wondering why you need another kitchen gadget? Well, the reason this griddle has garnered 4.6-stars over the course of more than 2,000 reviews is because it's incredibly versatile and great for small kitchens (take the handles off and it stores on its side, like a cutting board). Its cast iron aluminum surface is nonstick for easy cooking, plus that surface and the slide-out drip tray combine for easy cleanup.
