Best Mattress Reviews 

Best Mattress Reviews is run by a review team of veterans from the mattress industry as well as journalists who have written extensively about sleep health and sleep products. We’re a Seattle-based crew where all those dark, rainy days really charge up our hypersomnia, and persistently lead us to the next cup of coffee. So, of all people, we understand the importance of a good night’s sleep, and how your mattress can help or hinder that. Our goal is to give you the knowledge needed to make informed decisions about what mattress is best for you, so that you sleep soundly.


Consumer Safety Guide

We’re here to help you get the answers you need about consumer and medical products. We want to educate the public and ensure consumers are informed about defective medical products, dangerous drugs, and high-risk consumer products. Our goal is to be your go-to online resource. We provide accurate, relevant information in one place, so it’s easy and convenient for you to know what risks you face. We give you information about which products and devices are safe and which ones are not – hopefully reducing your risk on a daily basis.


First off, to be absolutely clear: mattress companies do not pay us for these reviews, and all our content is unbiased and independently researched. We’re beholden to you, the consumer, and not a mattress company. We created with one goal in mind: to help answer sleep questions so everyone can have a better night’s sleep.


Recall Report

Recall Report was created to alert the public to the latest information on dangerous drugs and products. With hundreds of suspected or confirmed dangerous drugs and products on the market, the up-to-date information we provide on recalls, alerts, and side effects is vital to keeping your family safe.
