The Oster cordless wine opener helped us open our wine quickly and efficiently.

Wine bottles are notoriously difficult to open, even for dads, which is what makes the Oster Cordless Electric Wine Opener a necessity for the wine connoisseur dad in your life. With just the touch of a button and in only a few seconds, this nifty gadget will remove the cork from a bottle of wine and give dad’s muscles a break. And since it can open up to thirty bottles on a single charge, dad can take the day off whether he decides to relax at home quietly, or invite the whole family over to celebrate.

We tested this automated beer brewing device and loved the regular progress updates from Beermkr's smartphone app.

Dads don’t always have time for the hobbies they love, but Beermkr is a game changer for the home brewing hobbyist. An automated beer-brewing machine, Beermkr simplifies brewing by automating the entire process and in turn, making it a lot less time-consuming. Whether he chooses to use a pre-portioned Mkrkit (essentially a meal kit but for beer) or whip up his own recipe, Beermkr controls and monitors each step while displaying the progress on the Beermkr app; a process the Reviewed team found to be quite convenient during testing. Brewing a gallon at a time, Beermkr is more than just an appliance, it’s a hobby for the hardworking dad.

The Wine Enthusiast 32-Bottle Dual-Zone MAX is the best wine fridge we tested.

Growing kids eat a lot, leaving little room for dad’s wine collection in a refrigerator packed full of snacks and juice boxes. But the Wine Enthusiast 32-Bottle Dual-Zone MAX Compressor Wine Cooler changes all that by creating a dedicated space for dad’s wine collection. With outstanding temperature performance, sleek design, and a well thought-out storage configuration, this wine fridge is the best we tested. It also solves the problem of trying to decide whether the red wine, the white wine, or the Danimals yogurt cups will get the coveted space in the fridge.

With the internal temperature able to stay under 40 degrees for as many as four days straight, this cooler is an absolute necessity when bringing beer to the campsite or even juice boxes to the soccer game.

This vacuum pump will help save your open wine from spoiling.

Mornings come early when you have kids and because of that there are nights when not finishing an entire bottle of wine is the best way to plan for an early tomorrow. That’s when the Vacu Vin Wine Saver Pump steps in to save the day and the wine dad didn’t drink. An Amazon favorite with 4.7 out of 5 stars and over 8,000 reviews, the Vacu Vin Wine Saver Pump works by removing the air from a bottle of wine and therefore preserves that “just opened flavor” for up to a week. Easy to use and easy on the wallet, this nifty product is a must have for any dad who likes to finish off a stressful day with a quick glass of wine, but doesn’t want to indulge in the entire bottle in one sitting.

The Instant Ace Nova is the best affordable blender we tested.

A good blender is a bartender’s right hand, so it only makes sense that a bartending dad has one ready to whip up an iced drink or puree some fruit for a tropical escape, even if he never truly leaves the kitchen. The Instant Pot Ace Nova blender can handle all of that and more, which is why it's one of the best blenders we've tested. Easy to use, this 1,000-watt blender has a preset chopped ice mode and, as a bonus, is incredibly easy to clean. Plus, if he also enjoys cooking, the Instant Pot Nova blender has an option to keep food hot for two hours after blending.
