There are times when it's worth it to pay a little more for a product in exchange for great performance or long life. For example, I bought this Ninja blender to make my morning smoothies. It zaps ice and blends fruits like a champ, giving me the perfect start to each day. There were cheaper blenders on the market, but the Ninja was worth every penny because it's got the double benefit of power and longevity.

What other bestselling products do Amazon buyers say are worth the investment? I put together a list of the things people rave about the most. How about the Instant Pot pressure cooker that does it all -- steam, sauté, slow cook, bake and more. It rates 4.8 stars on more than 30,000 reviews! And the latest Kindle Paperwhite, which is waterproof and has twice the storage space. At $129.99, it's adored by almost 100,000 buyers. Or this colorful Bose wireless speaker that's water resistant and has amazing sound. I'm adding it to my Amazon wish list right now.

We hope you find these products as awesome as we do. Just an FYI: We are a participant in the Amazon affiliate program, and may receive a share of sales from links on this page. Prices on Amazon fluctuate so anything mentioned below might change as soon we publish it!
