Inevitably, every year when our judges vote for the top products competing in the Hot One Awards, we have a few ties and close seconds, and even close thirds. Those close votes are an indicator of the superior quality of these contenders, and they deserve recognition. This year we got our readers in on the action with a Readers’ Choice poll featuring five of these neck-and-neck races. We gave each contest a two-week window for voting, and we encouraged the competing companies to rally their loyal users to weigh in, and we promoted the polls on our Facebook page. Combined, the contests racked up more than 140,000 votes. Here are the results!
