Alexa keeps a running shopping list and can order things directly from Amazon with one command. When we tested it, we shouted out needs for eggs, butter, hummus—even Entenmann’s chocolate doughnuts; these items magically appeared in list form in the Alexa app, and in our Amazon shopping cart. And if you do end up finding that half-full bottle of vanilla extract in the way back of the cupboard, Alexa can read the list back and delete stuff, too.

I’m not married, I don’t have kids, I live in a New York City apartment. I don’t spend that much time in the kitchen, which is where the hands-free feature is most useful. I own no connected light bulbs and plugs. And if I need an answer to something or want to play music, I have a cell phone which is a far more powerful computer at this point.
