Unless you've been living under a rock, you probably know about Amazon's Dash buttons — those little clicking buttons that automatically reorder paper towels, cleaning products, or any number of items. Reviews for the original buttons were decidedly mixed, but Amazon's newest button iteration is a little more magical.

Maybe that's why they're calling this one a wand.

Amazon's new Dash Wand has Alexa built right into it. That means all you have to do to reorder groceries you use all the time (I'm looking at you, organic milk and four kinds of mustard) is either say the name or use the built-in scanner to read the barcode of the product. Plus, you get a 90-day free trial of Amazon Fresh if you live in a city where it's offered, so fresh groceries are simply a voice command away.

Buy it now: Amazon Dash Wand With Alexa, $20

Oh, plus with that Alexa you can check the weather, ask her to tell you a joke, or play Big Bird's greatest hits on repeat to try to entice your baby to eat refried beans (they are delicious and healthy and come on, dude, try them!).

The Dash Wand will cost you $20, but it also offers a $20 credit back to your account if you order. (So, it's free.) Plus no waiting in line at the grocery store while you realize you forgot to set your DVR for your favorite show.
