From chest presses to lunges, dumbbells can be used for a variety of workouts. But if you're like me and work out from home these days, then you know that a downside to using them is having to deal with the clutter of multiple weights. That's where adjustable dumbbells come in, and Amazon shoppers are calling this top-tier set –– which is currently $250 off –– their home gym essential

The Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Dumbbells (Buy It, $299, was $549, amazon.com) are much more convenient than traditional versions — in fact, they're some of the best dumbbells you can buy, according to customers. Using a weight selection dial, you can set each dumbbell to one of 15 settings between 5 and 52.5 pounds in a matter of seconds, and the weight increases by 2.5-pound increments up to 25 pounds. That means that you can conduct both heavyweight and lightweight exercises, and it doesn't matter if you're a workout pro or a novice. 

The 16.9-by-9-inch dumbbells come with a space-saving rack. Plus, the plates have durable molding and hand grips, so you don't have to worry about the weights cracking or dropping. (Related: The 11 Best Adjustable Dumbbells to Get a Great Workout In at Home

They have nearly 12,000 five-star ratings on Amazon, and shoppers rave about them in reviews. "My husband and I both use these dumbbells. As a military family who moves every 2-3 years, it is wonderful to not have to pack up an entire set of dumbbells and keep track of them during the move," one Amazon customer said. "My husband and I both have seen awesome results from these. When we change the weight on the dumbbells, it is a nice smooth transition. There is no harsh movement that you might have with other brands."

"The adjustment mechanism is easy to use and the weight increments make a lot of sense," another wrote. "They start out with 2.5-lb increases with the lower weights and jump up to 5-lb increases at the higher end. You can do anything you would do with normal dumbbells –– bench presses, shoulder presses, curls, triceps extensions, rows, flys, lunges, etc."
