About The Testing Process
Ratings are based on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest. All products are rated on 10 attributes; three are printed here. In addition, members give the product an overall rating. At least 67 percent of testers must recommend a product for it to receive the Member Tested & Recommended seal. To be a tester, you must complete a Product Test Profile form, available online or by calling Member Services at 800-234-8454. Once chosen, testers are required to complete and return a report form on the product tested. The tester keeps the product free of charge. If you’ve tested a product in the past, you need to complete another test profile to remain eligible. After members are selected to test, they are not eligible to test for one year from their last tested date.
