About Jacqui Cheng

Chicago-based journalist Jacqui Cheng is the editor-in-chief of The Wirecutter and The Sweethome, two online solutions for tech shoppers that list and review the latest home gear. When she’s not telling you the best gadgets to buy, she’s now writing for The New York Times, who bought the two review sites in 2016, and remains the editor-at-large for Ars Technica where she first came to prominence as a writer. When she’s not writing about what to buy and what to skip, she’s firing off witty tweets about the crazy state of affairs in the world to her tens of thousands of followers, while spending her “nonexistent free time” kicking around her home city.
