This story is part of Select's New & Notable column, where we highlight our favorite product launches, major sales, what we're buying and some of our latest recommendations and advice.
This week, we’re highlighting a brand’s first hijab collection, a new multi-oven with cooking functions like air fry and steam, a new lightweight laptop and more products we think you’ll want to know about.
New this week
- Dell redesigned its XPS 13 laptop to be even thinner and lighter than previous iterations, with larger speakers and longer battery life, according to the brand. Dell’s newest 12th Gen Intel Core processors are built into the laptop, which comes in 13-inch through 17-inch sizes.
- Lululemon introduced hijabs in two machine-washable styles, the Lightweight Performance Hijab and the Scarf-Style Hijab. The brand said the former is designed for running and training because it has an adjustable drawstring to help the hijab stay in place. The latter hijab is customizable — but it doesn’t have the Performance Hijab’s drawstring, so it could be better for low-impact activities like yoga or walking.
- Panasonic debuted the HomeCHEF 7-in-1 Compact Oven. It’s built with two oven racks, as well as a water tank and broiler to power the oven’s steam cooking functions. You can also choose from cooking modes like air fry, bake, stew, ferment and more.
- REI released two electric bikes with 20-inch wheels and memory foam saddles: the Generation e1.1, which has a 36V removable battery that lasts up to 40 miles between charges, and the Generation e1.2, which has a 48v removable battery that lasts up to 50 miles. The e-bikes are only available to REI Co-op members until September 1.

What we bought this week
No one ever wants to admit that their parents are right, but in this case I have to — after weeks of my mom insisting I start using eye cream, I bought Cocokind’s Revitalizing Eye Cream and it’s now my favorite part of my daily skincare routine. I just used the last few drops of the first tube I bought and in the past three months, the cream has made my under-eye area noticeably brighter and much more hydrated. The tube features a metal applicator tip to help you blend the cream into your skin, and it stays cool which I’ve found to be refreshing. I also keep the cream in the fridge for an even greater cooling effect. – Zoe Malin, editorial intern
Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn. How do I love you? Let me count the ways. One, the display bookcase I raved about last week. Two and three, this Temple Street 3-Tiered Shelf. (I bought two of these shelves, so my math maths.) Like the display bookcase, this three-tiered shelf is svelte and crafted from steel — especially good for a smaller space where every inch of your wall is sacred. Plus, since it sits up on the wall, there’s room below it for other things: in my case, trash cans and dressers (the title of my eventual memoir). — Justin Krajeski, associate editor
I fell in love with arepas during my college years in Los Angeles, but it's been much harder finding them in New York. So when I was putting together my Hungryroot order last week, these corn crackers caught my eye — they have all the flavor of my beloved arepas, and they're the perfect midday snack with some guacamole or my Trader Joe's Creamy Cauliflower Jalapeno Dip. — Morgan Greenwald, senior editor
