Every hour, Amazon refreshes its best-selling items — otherwise known as its "Movers & Shakers." Each week, we'll be spotlighting 10 products that we think deserve a shout-out. We're also including each item's Fakespot grade, which provides a more accurate idea of how reliable the reviews actually are. (The tool picks through Amazon reviews and doles out poor grades for items that have biased critiques.)

Are we endorsing these items? Nope, just highlighting the deals that are getting the most love on Amazon. Happy reading!

 

1. Acer 15.6-Inch Chromebook

Acer

Acer's 15.6-inch 1080p IPS Chromebook is an official Mover & Shaker in the electronics department this week. Marked down from $399.99, the current price translates to a $70 saving. FYI: Some savvy Slickdealers tipped us off to a Groupon deal for $174.99 a few months back, which is much lower than the current Amazon price. (It was for a refurbished model, but it's still worth mentioning.) Either way, this laptop has glowing reviews and is said to be super fast.

Amazon price: $329.99

Amazon rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars

Fakespot grade: B

2. Keyton Stainless Steel Microwave

Marked down a whopping $200, it's little wonder that this stainless steel microwave from Keyton is a major standout this week. That said, we did notice a couple of potential red flags to keep in mind. While the five-out-of-five Amazon rating and the "A" grade from Fakespot are great, there are a number of reviews that may or may not be entirely unbiased. ( Look for: "I received this product at a discount for an unbiased and honest review.") There are also some remarks about this microwave being on the bulky side.

Amazon price: $149.99

Amazon rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Fakespot grade: A

3. eBags 3-pc Packing Cubes Set

Packing

Nobody likes packing, which might be why a product that claims to simplify the process is popular on Amazon this week. Coming in at just under $30, this three-piece set of packing cubes from eBags is available in nine colors; from grasshopper to denim. The manufacturer also dangles a lifetime warranty. All around, the reviews are pretty solid (and with over 2,000 reviews and an "A" Fakespot grade, we're trusting them). However, more than a couple of users warn that they may be a tad small for some travelers.

4. Car Seat Play Tray for Kids

Carseat

Any parent will tell you that keeping kids entertained in the car can be a lifesaver come long family road trips. These days, tablets and portable DVD players aren't the only tools in the arsenal. This car seat play tray is an all-in-one deal that sports two large pockets on either side; perfect for storing toys, snacks, art supplies, and whatever else your child can grab. This product has had a wild ride in terms of price points on Amazon, but the current $15 mark is tough to beat. Just be sure to read the reviews, as several users say it isn't compatible with all car seats.

Amazon price: $14.99

Amazon rating: 3.1 out of 5 stars

Fakespot grade: A

Price tracker via camelcamelcamel:

Highest price: $49.90 in June 2016
Lowest price: $7.70 in September 2015

5. LP LED Multi-Colored Flashlight

Flashlight

This LP LED flashlight is at the top of the home improvement best-seller list this week. Advertised as an all-in-one flashlight/reading lamp/nightlight/dancing light (yes, dancing light), this kitschy gadget certainly has an as-seen-on-TV vibe — not that there's anything wrong with that. All we're saying is that for $10 and zero user reviews, the listing doesn't really give us a clear idea of how well this multicolored flashlight actually works. Still, that isn't stopping us from being curious.

6. Xbox LIVE 12-Month Gold Membership

Xbox

This Xbox LIVE card is actually valued at $59.99, giving buyers an $11 leg up. A Gold Membership comes with a few notable perks, like special in-store discounts to the tune of 50 to 75 percent off. It allows Xbox players to connect online and play together as well, while also snagging members a couple of complimentary games each month. Some users commented that prepaid cards are the way to go since they take credit cards out of the equation, and essentially make online gaming easier in the process.

Amazon price: $48.51

Amazon rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars

Fakespot grade: A

Highest price: $59.95 in October 2013
Lowest price: $28.00 in September 2015

7. Adult Coloring Book

Coloring book

Step into any Barnes and Noble, and you'll see that adult coloring books are all the rage right now. The trend is carrying over onto Amazon, with this "Love Between the Lines" coloring book trending hard this week. Zen out and color to your heart's content with 45 hand-drawn illustrations that are said to be inspired by best-selling romance novels.

Amazon price: $9.39

Amazon rating: N/A

Fakespot grade: N/A

8. Gravity Hourglasses

This Mover & Shaker appeals to both sides of the psyche; the playful and the serious. Marketed as a time management tool, this two-piece setup is made up of one large 30-minute hourglass (with black sand) and a smaller five-minute hourglass (with white sand). The idea here is to work for 30 minutes, then play for five. The sleek design, while certainly a conversation piece, does have some drawbacks, though. We noted several reviews complaining that the hourglasses, while beautiful, were fairly fragile.

Amazon price: $24.95

Amazon rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars

Fakespot grade: A

9. Cold Brew Iced Coffee Maker by Takeya

With summer in full swing, iced coffee is the star of the show. Enter the Takeya cold brew iced coffee maker, a set-it-and-forget-it approach to your morning cup of Joe. After sifting through the reviews, the verdict seems to be that this model does indeed makes a good cup of coffee. Is it the best ever? Many say no, painting it more as a middle-of-the-road option that tastes good enough and gets the job done. We'll let you be the judge.

Amazon price: $14.99

Amazon rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars

Fakespot grade: A

10. 54 Oz. Tub of Refined Coconut Oil

Coco oil

Those who run in holistic self-care circles already know that coconut oil is the new buzzy thing. With its neutral scent and taste, this creamy oil can be used for everything from sautéing vegetables to baking a pie crust from scratch. It's also a go-to ingredient for a variety of homemade skin and hair care products. This 54 oz. tub of organic coconut oil from Nutiva appears to be a good bang for your buck; the same product at The Vitamin Shoppe runs for $30.

Amazon price: $20.51

Amazon rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Fakespot grade: A
