We evaluate products from the perspective of users. Don’t worry about professionalism. We have a large number of experts in this field. For most products, we will provide the advantages and disadvantages, characteristics, and appearance, functions, and cost-effective. We ensure the accuracy of our test items.
HOW WE DO IT
We have our process down to a science. With an army of testers, experts and a robust editorial team, we’re able to invest hours and hours of research into every product we review. By using consumer feedback and expert guidance, we’re able to confidently narrow down the products worth testing and reviewing. We then take all of that intelligence and data to present you with a clear, straightforward, and focused take of the top products, providing all the information you need and care about before you make a decision.
OUR REVIEW PROCESS
Our review process starts with research. Whether we’re evaluating eternally popular products like mattresses and air fryers or trendy, new products, our first step is to consult consumer feedback to determine which products are worthy of our consideration. Our online research process is informed by years of experience, so we know what to look for and what to filter out when gauging customer reviews. Our writers and editors spend hours combing through consumer feedback to ensure we’re capturing the voice of the people.
We talk to experts, when possible, to challenge what we’ve learned from consumer feedback. Our experts help us confirm our picks and ensure that we aren’t leaving any stones unturned.
We aim to test products that are either the best overall or the best budget pick in their category. We also test new releases and other popular products that make people’s lives easier. Our testing team puts each of these products through a series of tests to determine how well they perform. While we’re testing, we take organic photographs and videos so you can get a better idea of how the product looks, feels, and works in an everyday, real-world environment. We test products with the mindset of a consumer because that’s who we write our reviews for.
Once we finish testing, we use our findings to write new reviews and update existing ones. It’s important to us that our reviews are up to date so you have the most timely and accurate product information when you need it.
HOW WE TEST
At Yeapei, we’ve tested everything from home security cameras to running shoes to meal delivery services.
Rigorous-yet-practical testing in real-world settings allows us to confidently recommend products we know you’ll love. We provide accurate information because we test these products in the same ways you’d use them in your own home.We don’t claim to be scientists, just regular people who want to know if a vacuum will pick up dog hair, and if a toaster oven will crisp bread to perfection.
Our team of testers include cyclists, homeowners, gamers, pet owners, and more. Regardless of their expertise, they all have one thing in common: They’re curious about how stuff works. Not only will they test products in normal situations, but they will try to take them to their limits.
We prioritize testing products that are popular and that simplify people’s lives. We use consumer research and expert advice to help us select which products to test. So far we’ve tested products ranging from mattresses and memory foam pillows to percussion guns and at-home exercise equipment. When we review a product, we’re testing to see if the product performs as the manufacturer claims in real-world settings. We often bring products home to see if a vacuum can hold its own against our pets or if a new food processor can make our favorite falafel recipe. If you’d like to get updates on what we’re testing you can sign up for our newsletter.
We’re committed to independent testing, which means we never accept free products in exchange for positive reviews.Once we identify a product we want to test, we either purchase it ourselves or request a review unit from the manufacturer. While we occasionally test units we’ve received for free from manufacturers, we only publish reviews on products that pass our tests. Once we finish testing a product, we do our best to donate it to a nonprofit.
Our testing philosophy
We strive to follow the scientific method as closely as possible in our reviewing and testing. This includes extensive documentation, reducing variables, and gathering measurable evidence using objectives repeatable procedures.
As time passes, technology advances, and new reviewers join our team, our labs and processes remain consistent.
Transparency and equal access to information are important. Our open-door policy allows brands to visit and ask questions about our processes. But we’ll never share info with brands that we don’t share with our readers.
The Reviewed Lab
Based in the heart of Cambridge, Massachusetts, the Yeapei labs are some of the finest you’ll find in any editorial organization. Here, we’re able to trap light, isolate sound, and control ambient temperature and humidity. Did you know that when we test vacuums we make our own dirt to ensure the right granularity? We’re that kind of serious.
We use experts to evaluate and curate noteworthy products. They help us factor in important buyer concerns like durability, budget friendliness, and ease of use.
We care what consumers like you think about products too. We take into account the experiences of past and current customers who can attest to the quality and benefits of a product or service. This feedback helps us determine whether a product is reliable over the long term.
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
Not only are we in the business of providing quality, in-depth product reviews, but we’re also just like you. We are parents, home cooks, tech geeks, community volunteers, pet owners, aspiring artists, and DIY-ers. We love following trends, diving deep into the products that people use every day, and sharing all we learn to help you simplify your life — and we have fun while we’re doing it.
