I love Wirecutter. They have a great track record of recommending the absolute best of just about any category of stuff that I need to buy. One category that I’ve never really thought much about though is the humble keyboard cover, a sometimes necessary accessory for those of us who are just messy eaters, drinkers, etc.

Are cheap $5 covers worth it? And which cover is worth spending money on? After extensive testing, The Wirecutter recommends the slightly more pricey KB Clear Covers because in this case, you really do get what you pay for.
