News - Popular Mechanics Honors the 10 AMP Compact Reciprocating Saw With Editor's Choice Award

Popular Mechanics, one of America’s most trusted men’s magazines, today announced the winners of its Editor’s Choice Awards at the National Hardware Show, the mecca of the $343 billion US home improvement and DIY markets.

The 10 Amp Compact Reciprocating Saw (DWE357) from DEWALT is one of 16 products at the Show to be honored with an Editor’s Choice Award.

The DWE357 is designed with a unique, compact configuration that provides outstanding control and balance compared to traditional reciprocating saw designs, without sacrificing the power that professionals expect.

In choosing the honorees of the Editor’s Choice Awards, Popular Mechanics looks for innovation: what new features does a product possess that makes it valuable relative to existing or competing products? It’s not enough that something is new or novel. The product or the product’s improvement must be such that it offers substantial improvements or value relative to existing designs. Next, the editors look at the product’s industrial design: its shape, size, tactile surfaces, color, control features (on/off switch, for example), ease of use, portability, aesthetic attractiveness. Finally, they assess the economic value of the product. Simply stated: Popular Mechanics expects improvement and innovation to come at a price that is reasonable.
