Tia Mowry’s Dutch oven heats up quickly and bakes bread with a crispy crust, earning top marks on both tests. It’s almost as good at simmering sauces and heats evenly. Best of all, it’s a cinch to clean. It weighs almost 14 pounds and has a cooking surface that’s 8 inches in diameter.
Why it’s a good deal: This is the same sale price we’ve seen for the last several weeks, with Honey Gold having the biggest discount.
This All-Clad Essentials two-piece set (an 8.5-inch and a 10.5-inch pan) was among the top-rated in our tests, getting especially strong scores for cooking evenness and handle temperature. Plus, it released fried eggs easily.
Why it’s a good deal: Sales on All-Clad cookware are not always easy to come by, so take advantage while this discount is here.
The Beckham Luxury Linens Hotel Collection Pillow has a 100-percent-cotton cover and a 100-percent-polyester gel-fiber filling. The pillow aced our test for breathability, so it should help keep you from feeling hot; it also scored top marks for resiliency, so it should maintain its shape over time.
Why it’s a good deal: These pillows don’t go on sale often, and usually their sale price is closer to $40, making this an excellent time to upgrade your bed.
Philips SmartSleep Wake-up Light HF3520/60
With the Philips SmartSleep Wake-Up Light, you can wake up to one of five nature sounds or an FM radio. According to the manufacturer’s description, the clock glows with red, orange, and yellow colors that ultimately brighten to a maximum intensity of 300 lux (a measure of illuminance an object produces). You can adjust brightness levels according to your preference. Pressing snooze will temporarily shut off the sound alarm but not the light, which may keep you from falling back asleep (a good thing, if you truly want to wake up). The SmartSleep is pretty easy to set up and use, receiving high marks in both categories. Those needing help winding down at bedtime will also find the Philips wake-up light worth it for its simulated sunset feature.
Why it’s a good deal: This is the standard sale price for this wake-up light alarm clock.
Bluetooth and Smart Speakers
If you prefer Google Assistant to Alexa, the Google Nest Audio may be a good choice. Alexa smart speakers have a wider variety of skills and can be great for shopping on Amazon, but some users like Google’s powerful search function and find Google’s interface to be more natural and easier to use.
While Google brags about the Nest Audio’s sonic performance, our testers found that the gains were more modest. The speaker generates enough volume for a midsized room, but the midrange is a little hazy and there’s some sizzle on the high frequencies. While it’s better than the old Google Home, the Nest Audio still can’t compete with the best-sounding smart speakers. It also doesn’t sound quite as good as the similarly priced fourth-gen Amazon Echo.
Why it’s a good deal: This is the sale price we’ve seen for weeks, but it’s the only smart speaker on sale right now that has done well in CR’s tests.
The Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder earns solid scores in all our grind-performance tests, and it’s particularly great at producing coarse grounds, which are ideal for cold-brew and French press coffee. This model is also easy to clean, but its controls are a bit unintuitive, and it’s one of the noisier grinders in our ratings. The Bodum features 12 grind settings, an auto-stop feature, and a timer.
Why it’s a good deal: The black model is a few dollars below what we saw for Prime Day, while the white is back to its usual sale price.
The Keurig K-Mini Plus is a great little Keurig brewer that’s ideal for small kitchens with limited counter space. In our tests, it receives strong scores for temperature and size consistency between cups, as well as how easy it is to use and clean. It features a removable reservoir, a height-adjustable drip tray, and auto-shutoff.
Why it’s a good deal: Walmart’s price is the best we’ve seen so far.
The Keurig K-Latte Single Serve K-36 can brew both hot coffee and lattes, thanks to its built-in milk frother. It performs well in our tests, especially for its temperature and size consistency between brews. It’s equipped with an auto-shutoff, a height-adjustable drip tray, and a removable water reservoir.
Why it’s a good deal: This is a nice discount for this lower-priced Keurig.
For a brewer with a thermal carafe, consider this deal on the Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91. Our tests show that thermal carafes aren’t as easy to hold and pour as glass carafes, but this machine still performs decently for handling. It also offers great brew performance and is quite easy to clean and use.
Why it’s a good deal: This is a modest discount on an already lower-priced option.
One of the lightest large-capacity air fryers we recommend, the Gourmia GAF686 Digital is a top performer in CR’s air fryer tests. Though its measured capacity is 4.3 quarts, its overall size is equivalent to some smaller-capacity models. In addition to being a standout for its user-friendly controls, it’s a stellar pick because of its relatively low noise levels and its ease of cleaning. It comes with 1-year warranty.
Why it’s a good deal: This is actually about $10 cheaper than it was for Prime Day. If you order from Amazon, note that they’re currently out of stock, but you can still get this price now and it’ll ship as soon as it’s available.
Small but mighty, the seven-speed KitchenAid Architect KHM7210 hand mixer performed impressively in our cookie dough mixing test, delivering enough power to fold chocolate chips into stiff cookie dough. Testers liked this model’s easy-to-clean wire beaters, simple controls, and separate whisk attachment (great for scrambling eggs).
Why it’s a good deal: You can still get this hand mixer for its Prime Day discount, which matches the usual sale price.
This NutriBullet doesn’t pack the punch of some processors, but it performs well with a black and chrome design that will look nice on your countertop. If you’re not a gourmet, it’s all you’ll need (and it’s now $30 off, to boot)—450 watts and three speeds; 7-cup-capacity work bowl; simple push-button controls, and attachments for chopping, slicing, shredding, spiraling and kneading. It also comes with cord storage and recipe booklet.
Why it’s a good deal: This is a modest discount, and about $10 more than it was during Prime Day, but you won’t find a lot of food processors under $100 that perform well.
Small microwaves tend to be underpowered, and the Commercial Chef CHM770B is no exception. But it may be all you need for a college dorm or home office. This one is a champ at heating evenness, acing our mashed potato test, but it’s a slowpoke at heating a simple bowl of water. It’s average at defrosting and is pretty quiet. And for the price, it’s worth a look. Use the code NEWSTYLE to get the full discount.
Why it’s a good deal: This is the usual sale price, just a few dollars more than we saw during the last big sale week.
At 18 pounds, the Chicco Liteway umbrella stroller is compact, simple to use, and folds and unfolds easily. It’s responsive and sturdy, and it maneuvers well for its small size, even on rough terrain. The basket access is limited with the seat reclined, and our diaper bag didn’t fit completely in the basket. The harness also requires some rethreading to adjust. But this stroller earns top marks for safety.
Why it’s a good deal: A sub-$100 price for a top-rated stroller is always worth a look.
This lightweight stroller is designed to carry a handful of different brands and models of car seats. The car seat is supported and secured by straps on the stroller—so the “snap” is something of a misnomer, but it’s still easy enough to secure and remove. The stroller is fairly simple to fold, though it’s maybe not quite a one-hand fold: Testers found that they needed to use two hands to push the frame down and engage the fold lock. They also found that the stroller pulled a little when they took turns around corners, but it’s a good ride on smooth surfaces.
Why it’s a good deal: This is now a few dollars less than we saw during Prime Day.
There’s no easier design for a baby gate than this 30.25 Cumbor gate. With an auto-close mechanism, you can manipulate it with one hand and won’t have to worry about manually latching it correctly. It aced our tests for convenience, security, and installation, and it fits openings from 29.5 to 46 inches wide.
Why it’s a good deal: This is the usual sale price for this baby gate, and we’ve not seen it dip any lower.
Black-and-white laser printers don’t get enough love from everyday shoppers. A machine like the HP LaserJet M209dwe can be far cheaper to operate than nearly any inkjet, while spewing out very sharp, clear text at impressive speeds. However, this is a bare-bones machine. It prints only in black-and-white. It’s pretty inept at producing graphics, and it lacks the ability to copy or scan documents.
Oh, and about that six-month deal on cartridges: You’ll need to set up an HP account and maintain the printer’s internet access. (Note that the printer accepts only HP toner cartridges.) If you’re okay with all that, the HP LaserJet M209dwe can be a good deal. What it does, it does extremely well, while consuming a modest corner of a desk—and an even smaller slice of a household budget.
Why it’s a good deal: A reliable printer for less than $100 is rare, but perfect for someone with basic printing needs.
The Fitbit Inspire 2 fitness tracker has been on sale since mid-April, but the price continues to fall. It’s now only $7 more than the lowest we’ve seen all year. It gets top marks from our testers for step count and heart rate accuracy, and it earns a spot among the best fitness trackers for its ease of use, pairing, and readability in low light. The Inspire 2 also has a very generous claimed battery life of 10 days (we don’t test that characteristic) and built-in GPS, a feature not found on many other fitness trackers.
Why it’s a good deal: Walmart still has the same low price we’ve seen for this fitness tracker in recent weeks.
Though the second-generation AirPods don’t get top marks for sound quality in Consumer Reports’ testing, there’s no denying the appeal of these true wireless earphones for many Apple fans—especially at a big discount.
Why it’s a good deal: This is the same sale price that’s been available for some time, but it’s still nice to get AirPods for under $100.
If you’re looking for an indoor security camera to keep an eye on your pets, our editors found the Arlo Essential Indoor to be a close second to the Furbo dog camera. And even though the Arlo is technically a home security camera, which means it lacks functionalities like tossing treats, it still provides the necessary technology for checking in on your pets. The device’s video angle and video quality are great, and its corresponding app is easy to use. While the setup is a bit tricky—and the privacy shield makes a noise that could alert your pet when it comes on—it does impress as far as sound.
Why it’s a good deal: This is still available for its Prime Day price.
The Bosma Aegis Smart Lock SL0001 receives high scores across the board in our tests, including ease of remote access. This retrofit smart lock also comes with plenty of features, such as auto-locking, auto-unlocking, voice and app control via Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, electronic keys, an access log, a door open/close sensor, and a tamper alarm to warn you of a possible break-in.
Why it’s a good deal: With the on-page coupon, you’re saving nearly 50 percent.
Brooklinen Super-Plush Bath Towels
The Brooklinen Super-Plush bath towels are perfect for anyone who likes a towel as big as a blanket after their shower. These oversized towels are a whopping 53 inches long and 28 inches wide. They were also the most absorbent in our evaluation but took the longest time to dry. There are lots of color options to choose from as well.
Why it’s a good deal: You can save 10 percent right now, but note that this set was $8 cheaper last week and may fall in price again closer to Labor Day.
Cat Mate C3000 Automatic Dog & Cat Feeder, 26-cup Capacity
This automatic feeder allows pet owners to schedule up to three meals a day in any desired quantity. The device has a maximum capacity of 26 cups and can be programmed to give out meals as small as 2 teaspoons.
Why it’s a good deal: This is the standard discount for this feeder. And if you’re a first-time Chewy shopper, you can use the code WELCOME to save $20 on your purchase because it’s over the $49 limit, knocking the price down to $39.99.
Phomemo M110 Label Maker
The Phomemo M110 is the bigger, bulkier version of the Phomemo D30, which we also tested and liked. The M110 offers a bit more flexibility with the size of the label you’re creating. It uses the same app as well, and has a wide variety of fonts, styles, and images, with quick creation and easy label cutting. Its size, compared with the smaller Phomemo, makes it a bit less portable, and its alignment isn’t as precise when it comes to cutting the label exactly on the cut line compared with other label printers. But it’s still a solid option.
Why it’s a good deal: This is the usual sale price, which comes and goes fairly often.
