My Instant Pot pressure cooker! As a homeschooling mother of four who works full-time, it's helpful to have a kitchen appliance that I can just throw some food into, walk away from, and then 30 minutes later have a homemade meal for my family.—Shannon Emrich, marketing director, Yoder’s

I am loving the voice-activated Amazon Echo and my new friend Alexa, who connects me instantly to music, information, news, weather and Google searches. And she’s quicker than a calculator when it comes to math. Southeastern Guide Dogs has placed an Echo in each of our dorm rooms for our visually impaired students, too.—Titus Herman, CEO, Southeastern Guide Dogs

Sonos is a super-easy-to-use music system with all the major streaming services. I have twin 5-year-old boys. In the morning we play Pandora channel Kidz Bop or the soundtrack to one of their favorite movies. And at work, having background music playing is expected at a home technology showroom.—Mark Bolduc, president, Wicked Smart Homes
