What. A. Year. While we’re probably all glad it’s almost over, it’s about time we looked back. In true end-of-year fashion, we’re remembering the products Scouted Readers bought most this year. We wrote about a ton of stuff to help make your quarantine life more comfortable, productive, and let’s be real: bearable. Whether it was time spent cooking, the hunt for the perfect pair of pants, or just a cleaning product that could get the job done, these were your favorite products of the year.
It only seems fair to start this off with a face mask. The Vida mask was a reader favorite thanks to its simple design, yet effortless features. It comes in a ton of different color options to make you feel unique, too.
Carbon Steel Frying Pan
I think it’s safe to say we all became better cooks in 2020 and this pan was a guiding force. Built from carbon steel, this pan provides the best of both worlds— stainless steel and cast iron— and is an absolute workhorse in the kitchen.
Guardsman Watermark Remover
I just used these the other day to get a gnarly stain out of my kitchen table. They really are the best thing you can buy for removing watermarks—but they do require a bit of elbow grease to get the job done.
Uniqlo White Tee
Maybe it was because we weren’t going out as much, or maybe it was because Uniqlo’s white tees rule, I’m not here to judge. But I will say these comfortable, simple basics are great to have in your repertoire.
There was a time this year where paper products were hard to come by. That’s where these came in (but they stayed along for the ride long after paper towels were back in stock). Swedish Dishcloths are the reusable paper towels we never knew we needed–forever eliminating the dread that comes with realizing you’ve finished a roll, and don’t have another one.
I, too, became a champion of the bidet this year. It saves toilet paper, is more hygienic, and easy to install on any toilet. Bottom line: what’s not to love?
Lululemon Align II Pants
Lululemon’s Align Pants have been a favorite year in and year out, but they found a new stride when all of us were just wearing sweatpants and leggings all day everyday. They are comfortable, timeless, and minimalist, perfect for working from home.
Cold Bee Gone Nasal Swab
If there’s one thing we were all concerned about this year, it was our health. The Cold Bee Gone Nasal Swab uses raw honey to boost your immune system and Scouted Contributor Maria Cassano insists it works wonders for her.
Food 52 Drying Rack
I’ve never done so many dishes in a year. Thankfully, Food52’s Drying Rack came to the rescue. Not only does it expand when you need to dry more dishes, it also has a utensil caddy perfect for washing berries in.
Royal Seat Cushion
Did your kitchen chair turn into your office chair? The Purple Seat cushion was my favorite way to make any seat the best one in the house, and it looks like you all found the same success I did.
