Stuff Gadget Awards 2022: Best Home Gadget of the Year

The top home gadget of 2022

There’s no place like home and nothing that can bring us more pride. So here’s our pick of the top gadgets you need to keep your home looking its absolute best at all times!

Home Gadget of the Year

Dyson V12 Detect Slim

If you were expecting a shoe-lace-tying Minion or kitchen-cleaning humanoid, stay subscribed to Stuff until 2034 and we’re sure it’ll happen. Until then, the most hi-tech piece of home gadgetry we came across in 2022 was the laser-wielding Dyson V12 Detect Slim. Named after its uncanny ability to “see” dust, the laser source is mounted at precisely the right height above the floor and angled to bathe the floor in green light. It’s similar to shining a UV light during a forensic search and if you have even the slightest OCD, the joy and satisfaction of seeing the V12 magically swallow dust is inexpressible. Advanced dust-sensing electronics and a graphical readout make cleaning more fun than ever! 

Best of the rest

Philips 3-IN-1 Air Purifier

It may look like a giant keyhole from Hogwarts castle, but the Philips excels at its core job of separating dust from breathable air in your room. Add a cooling and heating option for added versatility and it serves well.

Philips SpeedPro Aqua

Seems like the loss of the TV world has been the domestic appliances gain, with two Philips home products making it as nominees! A wet mop with a vacuum is something every Indian asked for and they got it!

Electrolux Pure A9 Himalaya

Not one to be taken lightly, this premium air purifier is meant for large rooms and lives up to its promise of turning gunk into farm-fresh oxygen. It is also super quiet, which we like.
