    FAQ's

    "How many samples should I send for each product being submitted?"

    A minimum of two samples per product being submitted must be sent unless arrangements have been made by authorized staff to allow less.  The greater the number of samples sent, the larger the number of consumers having hands-on evaluation of the product.

    Yes, you can but only if a formal request has been submitted following submission of the product,  You must provide specific details as to urgency for us to approve priority on the evaluation of your product(s).  Each request is handled on an individual basis and has no guarantee of approval.  A unique processing ticket number will be generated and assigned to each request.

  • "Do I have to pay a fee to submit a product for evaluation or posting of it's being a winner?"

    No fees of any kind are required for the evaluation of any product submitted to us for review. We uphold professional journalism values which embody the idea of unbiased news coverage/evaluation. If so much as a single penny is received prior to the completion of a product evaluation, it is biased.  There are no exceptions to this rule.

    Once and IF a product passes our strict evaluation process, a New Inductee announcement is published with details such as the URL of the company producing the product, UPC Code, MSRP, and other details.  This is done with no fees of any kind.

    In regard to the evaluation process we use, we do not have "winners".  Each product is judged by its own merits and how the product stands in the extensive number of evaluation categories used to complete an in-depth and fair evaluation.
