Shop these exciting new products from John Deere, Bissell, KitchenAid, and more.
Nearly every week, manufacturers make headway on perfecting their craft. Buzzy new products roll out with upgraded technologies, sleeker designs, added conveniences, and better performance. We’re more than a month into 2023, and many of our favorite brands in the home, garden, and DIY space have already announced several products that have caught our editors’ attention. From Bissell to John Deere, see some of the newest innovations on the market.
1. Bissell introduced its first 3-in-1 mop, vacuum, and steamer.
Bissell’s latest invention washes, vacuums, and steams your entire home in one fell swoop. With a multi-surface design, it swiftly removes dirt, pet dander, caked-on stains, and crumbs from area rugs and sealed hard floors alike—without the need to pull out reinforcement. Unlike past Bissell models, this one has two tanks and a self-cleaning cycle. The brand asserts that it’s “proven to clean sticky messes up to 20 percent better,” thanks to its combo of specialized cleaning formula and HydroSteam Technology. Plus, early reviewers give it 4.8 stars for its performance.
2. John Deere announced its first all-electric zero turn mower.
The renowned lawn mower brand just launched an exciting new electric model. The Z370R Electric preserves some of the brand’s best features—such as the Accel Deep Mower Deck, comfortable seat design, and durable frame—and swaps gasoline for a high-powered, sealed lithium battery. Its battery has up to 40 percent more capacity than those in the competition. The powerful motor mows up to 2 acres per charge, and it will shut off blades when the battery is low so that you can drive home on the last of the power. While this model isn’t out quite yet, you can preorder it just in time for spring.
3. KitchenAid unveiled its color of the year: Hibiscus.
Each year, the beloved kitchenware brand KitchenAid announces a new color of the year and debuts an Artisan Stand Mixer, blender, and other kitchen goods in a new signature hue. This year, KitchenAid’s color choice is bold. Hibiscus is a punchy, vibrant pink that can jazz up any kitchen. The brand new Hibiscus Artisan Stand Mixer comes complete with a 3- and 5-quart bowl and baking attachments to help you ace your desserts.
4. Eufy launched its newer, more premium sister brand of household cleaning technology called Mach.
Popular robot vacuum brand Eufy just launched its sleek new cleaning line Mach this week. Its first official product, the V1 Mach-Ultra, is a vacuum, mop, and steamer combo that’s as beautiful as it is effective at cleaning your entire home. It cleans spills, sucks up dirt, and sanitizes. Its use of aqueous ozone (a highly effective and household-safe sanitizer) removes up to 99.9 percent of household germs, bacteria, and viruses. And when your chores are complete, use its self-cleaning function to wipe out odor and germs before storing.
5. The environmentally-driven bedding brand Ettitude introduced a new vegan cashmere blanket.
Throw blankets are go-tos for getting through the chillier season, layered on a couch, chair, or bedspread. This month, the bedding brand Ettitude launched a new cashmere blanket made with a higher level of environmental friendliness in mind. Instead of cashmere, Ettitude achieves a soft yet eco-friendly facsimile with its signature CleanBamboo fibers—a fabric made using a non-toxic solvent and water that’s efficiently recycled up to 200 times. It’s gentle on sensitive skin, earned the Standard 100 label by OEKO-TEX, and meets PETA’s seal of approval. The initial two colors sold out in days, so get on the waitlist for the next drop of the 50- by 70-inch woven blanket.
