The Best New Products segment of Today’s Homeowner has been a popular feature of the show since the very beginning. Over the years it has exposed viewers to hundreds of cool new tools, building materials, and other products for the home.

I hosted the segment for a number of years until Emily Barta took over for a season. She was followed by Jodi Marks, our current host.

Jodi’s spunky, can-do attitude has really brought a lot of energy to the show. Watch this video to see how Best New Product has evolved over the years, as well as some amusing behind the scenes clips.
