With the holiday season upon us, there’s no doubt we’ll all be spending a little more time in the kitchen. While some of us relish the opportunity to flex our culinary muscles, others of us like to get it over with—in an instant, you might say. To the rescue: The Instant Pot! This multifunction contraption promises to make cooking and cleanup a breeze. But is it really all it’s cracked up to be? Does it truly hold up under the pressure of our scrutiny? We take sides.
Then, remember when Marie Kondo wanted you to clear your home of everything unless it sparked joy? Well, the organizing guru is back to tell you that now she wants you to buy some stuff to fill that empty space—specifically, her stuff. We take a look at some of the most ridiculous—and expensive—items in Kondo’s new online store.
Other topics we cover:
- The viral listing that features—believe it or not—an open-concept bathroom. If this is a new trend, we’re ready to flush it away.
- Joe Pesci is selling his New Jersey home, and it’s something else.
- And, of course, we’ve got our celebrity real estate winner and loser. Our loser might be on the right track after taking a bogey on the sale of her custom Palm Beach, FL, mansion last year. And our winner has cooked up a real Spanish-style beauty in SoCal.
