    Here at Consumer Reports, our test engineers, market analysts, secret shoppers, and statisticians combine their skills to help find, analyze, and test thousands of products every year. Like you, we’re consumers, too. We want to find the very best products for your home and ours.

    That drive is why we take over 5 million temperature readings for each refrigerator that enters our labs, use a photo-imaging machine to determine how well dishwashers clean, and bake thousands of cookies while testing ranges.
