Faveable supports our readers with thousands of hours of research, testing and reporting to help you find products that will make your life more fun and enjoyable. You support us when you purchase a product through links that were independently created by product experts who independently researched the products. These links then earn us a commission. Read more about what we do.
Faveable is a list of the best products on the planet for people who want to save the time and complexity of figuring out what to buy. We make shopping easy by telling you the best stuff to get based on independent research. The site was founded in September 2013 with a mission of saving you time and money by making finding the best products easy.
Our recommendations are made through vigorous research, interviewing, and testing and reporting by teams of expert investigators and researchers. We find the best stuff in the areas we care about most, so our site is a gallery of curated products we have fallen in love with ourselves. Our research skills are some of the best around anywhere, which has given us a reputation of being dead-on accurate with all our top picks. We make buying awesome products quick and easy so you have more time to spend the more important things in your life.
We pride ourselves on following rigorous journalistic and research standards. We also take the highest ethical approach, splitting the researchers and writers from the affiliate team. In other words, are researchers and journalists are commissioned to pick the best products in the world without bias or favor. Once the picks are finalized and the article is written, our affiliate team then adds paid links to the products where applicable. So our product picks are never influenced by commissions.
By maintaining our business operations separate from our editorial team, we insure our product picks are based purely on merit and not any other outside influences. In summary, our recommendations are always made entirely by our editorial team without input from our revenue team.
Can Your Picks Really Apply to Everyone?
We look for what we think is best for the majority of people looking for a particular product. Not the products that have the most feature or the highest price. We seek out the sweet spot, products that are top in their category and provide the most value for the money.
The product picks we make take weeks or months of research and are backed by researchers with years of experience. Our picks are the same products we recommend to our friends and family and, in many cases, are products we ourselves have purchased or enjoyed.
Do your affiliate commissions make you biased?
Our writers and editors are never made aware of our relationships with our affiliate partners. Only after the final picks have been made do we then apply the affiliate links when and if they are applicable.
If readers decide to purchase the products we recommend as a result of our research, analysis, and testing, our work is often, but not every time, supported through an affiliate commission from the retailer when a reader makes a purchase. If readers return their purchases for any reason, we make nothing off the purchase. So there is no incentive for us to pick inferior products. Our incentive is to make you happy with your purchase, which both protects our reputation and reduces returns to retailers.
Why Don't You Have All The Products I am Looking For?
Email us any time if you are looking for a product we have not yet reviewed. We love to hear from you and promise we will do our best to products you want and love.
Before we start testing products, we begin researching the literature and existing reviews. We frequently reference a number of well-respected publications, including Consumer Reports, CNET, Good Housekeeping and lots of other sites.
We love what we do and we thrive on all the positive feedback we receive from our readers. If there is anything we can do better or any questions you have of us, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.
