Our Review Process

Thanks for visiting Best Home Gear and our “Review Process” page, where we explain How we Review each of the products reviewed in our articles.

First, the content published at Best Home Gear is written only by a Home Improvement expert, focused on Home Improvement, Home Repair, Lawn care, Outdoor Equipment, Tools, Equipment Repair, and Patio and Yard improvement experts.

In addition to our first-hand experience, we invest many hours in product research before going “live” with any article. We remain “Unbiased” – as no manufacturers sponsor any of the products we feature in our reviews.

Our research includes a deep dive into real-time use, customer satisfaction, and manufacturers’ warranties, providing a diligent side-by-side comparison of the performance and specifications of each brand. 

We also stay mindful to include Editors Choice, Runner-Up, or Best Value options to help you select merchandise based on your needs and specific budget. 

We all possess various levels of Do-It-Yourself, hands-on experience. 

For this reason, we always offer Step-by-Step instructions with Safety in mind before publishing Repair Guides and How-To Home Improvement Guides on our website.

Whether you’re wondering what the Best Lawn Mower is, who makes the Best Cordless Drills, How to build a fence, or how to care for your lawn or garden, we hope you benefit from our work and find the assistance you need within each of the topics we cover.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

Do You Test all of the Products and Equipment You Review?

While we test many of the Products and Equipment we Review, purchasing every product we review is impractical.

Manufacturers’ products constantly evolve, and product models are frequently deleted and new ones added.

Instead, we offer the best reviews for the most “Current” products. This way, you see the benefits and features each manufacturer offers.

How do you determine which Products are the Best?

First, we use our field experience based on each Brand’s Reliability. We also consult with other product users and extensively research the Manufacturer’s specifications for each product.

As an Affiliate, we also consider recent and verified – Amazon, Home Depot, Tractor Supply, and Ace Hardware customer feedback – and which products are currently rated as the best option for our readers.

Are your Reviews impartial to avoid conflict for commissions received?

Our goal with any product review is to provide consumers with impartial product reviews per equipment category. We always base reviews on the significant buying considerations of; Performance, Cost, Durability, Testing, and User Feedback.

From our research and hands-on experience, we confidently recommend products in categories such as Editors Choice (Best Overall), Runner-up, Best Value (inexpensive but solid performer), or other variations within the category.

Additional facts regarding commissions.

If you purchase something through one of our Links and decide to return it to the supplier, we receive no commission, and so from a practical sense, it is in our Best Interest to recommend products you will be glad you purchased – and keep you 🙂
