Street Price: $250 MSRP: $290 Deal Price: $213
Here’s another deal on our top pick adjustable dumbbells, just beating the deal we saw recently. While we recently featured these at $225, this most recent deal has dropped them down to $213, which is the lowest price we’ve seen to date. That’s a nice $37 drop from the average street price of $250 that we’ve seen it at for the past few months, and a great deal for people trying to get their beach body ready before summer.
The Bowflex SelectTech 552 are our pick in our guide to the best adjustable dumbbells. Mark Bixby wrote, “Other dumbbells might adjust slightly quicker or have better build quality, but the Bowflex SelectTech 552s are our pick because they offer the most complete overall package that will appeal to beginners and experienced users alike. In addition to offering great performance and adjustability, they have zero intimidation factor thanks to a terrific set of instructional materials that other manufacturers would do well to emulate. But even without the great introductory materials, we found in testing that the SelectTechs are easy to adjust, offer a wide variety of weight levels, and excelled in testing during all of our different exercise regimens for both strength training and conditioning workouts. All this adds up to a set that’s more approachable than anything else we looked at, which means you’ll be more likely to get started and stick with them.”
Street Price: $260 MSRP: $300 Deal Price: $193
With summer right around the corner, this deal is just in time to keep you nice and cool while the weather heats up. This is the slightly older, previous model of our top pick for air conditioner, but in terms of specifications and features they are nearly identical. The newer LW8016ER is slightly more energy efficient than the LW8015ER, but barely. It also measured 1db louder in our tests. Overall, this is a great deal and the lowest price we’ve seen this air conditioner.
The LG LW8015ER is the previous model of the LW8016ER, our top pick in our guide to the best air conditioner. Liam McCabe wrote, “The LG LW8016ER is the window AC you should probably get, especially if it’s for an office, den, or other room where you won’t be sleeping. Though for some people, it’ll be fine in the bedroom, too. Its price is fair, and this model is widely available, so you’ll have no trouble running out and grabbing it for a decent price on short notice—for instance, in the middle of a heat wave, like when you’re probably reading this article. Compared with other ACs at this price, it’s quieter and hums along at a lower pitch, so it’s easier on the ears. And though AC controls aren’t rocket science, this one offers a greater level of flexibility in total than most of its competitors, covering all the little details, from the fan’s directional controls and outdoor-air vent to the dehumidifier mode and removable drain plug.”
Street Price: $45 MSRP: $50 Deal Price: $38
If you’re in need of a salad spinner that doubles as a nice server, this is a good opportunity to pick one up. Typically, the OXO Stainless Steel Salad Spinner sits at $50. While it sees periodic sales that drop it into the $40s and recently into the $30s, this price matches the lowest we’ve seen for it. It also drops it into the price range of our top pick, which makes this spinner all the more appealing as it shares the same mechanism and performance.
The OXO Stainless Steel Salad Spinner is our nicer serving bowl pick in our Best Salad Spinner guide. Jamie Wiebe and Anna Perling write, “If you want a salad spinner that also doubles as an elegant serving bowl, we recommend the OXO Stainless Steel Salad Spinner. It’s pricier than the Good Grips, but its spin mechanism and performance are identical, and its stainless steel bowl can double as an attractive server. It’s even more stable than the Good Grips, thanks to the heft of the stainless steel and its rubber-coated base. Ultimately, though, the Good Grips has a better price and performs as well as this spinner, making it better for most people.”
Street Price: $45 MSRP: $55 Deal Price: $30
A new low price for our top pick for best small saucepan, the Cuisinart MCP19-18N MultiClad Pro 2-Quart. This saucepan already represented great value for the money at the typical street price of $45, so this is a tremendous deal for those looking to start up or add to a nice set of pots and pans. Shipping is free with Prime.
The Cuisinart MultiClad Pro 2-Quart is our top pick in our guide to the best small saucepan. Lesley Stockton wrote, “The Cuisinart MultiClad Pro ($50) is our top pick because it has everything we want in a small saucepan (which can’t be said for much of the competition), and for a very affordable price. With tri-ply for even heat distribution, a wide body, a bent lip for pouring, and a snug lid, this saucepan performs nearly as well as ones that are three times the price.”
Street Price: $125 MSRP: $130 Deal Price: $107
Another nice deal on our top carpet and upholstery cleaner pick, the Bissell SpotClean Pro, matching the price of the previous sale a few weeks back. While this deal doesn’t quite hit the lowest price we’ve seen, it is within $10. Most of the sales we’ve seen on the SpotClean Pro tend to be very brief, so it’s unlikely this deal will last for too long.
The Bissel SpotClean Professional Portable Carpet Cleaner is our top pick in our guide to the best portable carpet and upholstery cleaners. Tyler Wells Lynch wrote, “The Bissell SpotClean Pro is the best carpet and upholstery spot cleaner we tried. It was one of the only machines to completely remove stains from upholstery and it did a better job at minimizing stains on our white shag rug. It’s less likely to damage fabric than a steam cleaner, cheaper than most competing devices, and fairly easy-to-use with very few safety hazards.”
Street Price: $40 MSRP: $40 Deal Price: $30
Here’s a nice deal matching the previous lowest price we’ve seen on our top spiralizer. We’ve only seen a handful of deals on this OXO spiralizer, and most of those deals have been incredibly brief. Don’t expect this deal to stick around for more than a couple of days.
The OXO Good Grips Spiralizer is our top pick in our guide to the best spiralizer. Michael Sullivan wrote, “The new OXO Good Grips Spiralizer outperformed every other model we tested due to its thoughtful design and ease of use. Though more expensive, the OXO’s sharp blades cut both firm and delicate vegetables with minimal effort, creating long noodles that don’t break apart. The three colorful blade attachments fit snugly in a separate covered compartment, which is safer and more convenient than models that come with stray blades and no storage options. Its wide base suctions securely to your work surface and doesn’t budge while spiralizing. The OXO’s compact size and collapsible side handle means it takes up less space when stored on your counter or in a kitchen cupboard.”
Street Price: $20 MSRP: $20 Deal Price: $15
Just in time for grilling season is a nice deal on our favorite grill tongs. While we have seen them at this price point a few times before, this is the lowest they usually go. These deals also tend to be pretty short, so don’t be surprised if it’s gone in a few days. These deals also tend to be pretty sparse, so don’t be surprised if we don’t see another deal on this until after summer is over, so this is a good time to pick up these tongs.
The OXO Good Grips 2 Piece Grilling Set is our best BBQ tongs pick in our guide to the best grill tools. Seamus Bellamy wrote, “Good tongs are great multitaskers. You can use them to transfer raw chicken from a plate to the grill, turn delicate veggies or plate a rack of ribs once they’re cooked to perfection. Our favorite are the 16-inch locking tongs that come in the $20 OXO Good Grips 2-Piece Grilling Tools Set. We don’t usually recommend sets, but both the tongs and spatula that come in this one beat a range of single tools in our tests. We like these tongs because of their excellent construction and delicately scalloped heads, long reach and grippy handles that feel good in a bare hand or a grilling glove.”
Street Price: $35 MSRP: $38 Deal Price: $30
Another good deal and the second in as many weeks on this rice cooker, which usually sits in the mid-$30s. At $30, while not the lowest price we’ve seen, it matches last week’s price and is the lowest price we’ve seen since last year. If you’re in need of a rice cooker, this is a good time to pull the trigger.
The Hamilton Beach Digital Simplicity Rice Cooker and Steamer is our pick in our Best Rice Cooker guide. Karen Solomon and Tim Barribeau write, “The Hamilton Beach 37549 2-to-14-cup Digital Simplicity Rice Cooker and Steamer is the best value for most people because it offers tremendous functionality for the price. Above all, it makes short-grain or medium-grain white rice as delicious as models that cost four times as much. The construction feels solid, and it cooks more quickly when compared to most of the competition (it was the second fastest cooker we tested). With a 14-cup capacity, the Hamilton Beach is much larger than many other machines at this price. Additionally, it’s a pleasure to house on almost any kitchen countertop: its sleek stainless and black design makes it look like a more expensive model, and it’s more well-contained in a small footprint than most. It delivers on features that we thought a great rice cooker should have: a timer, stay-warm functions, a tight lid, and a heavy, quality cooking pot. For the majority of home cooks seeking a useful, manageable tool to make delicious white rice at a great price, it will be tough to beat this Hamilton Beach machine.”
Street Price: $700 MSRP: $700 Deal Price: $600
We’ve only seen the Roomba 960 hit this price point once before, so this is a great price to pick it up. The only other time we’ve seen a good deal matching this one was during the Black Friday sales, so it’s unlikely that this deal will last.
The Roomba 960 is our upgrade pick in our guide to the best robot vacuums. Liam McCabe wrote, “For tougher jobs, like cleaning a large home or digging a lot of pet hair out of carpets, we really like the iRobot Roomba 960. It has more cleaning power than our main pick or runners-up, and a sophisticated navigation system that lets it clean an entire level of your home, room by room, without missing any patches. It also works with a smartphone app, so you can control and monitor it when you’re away from home. When we compare it with other high-end, full-featured robot vacuums, we think the Roomba 960 hits the right balance of price and performance.”
Street Price: $140 MSRP: $140 Deal Price: $107
If you’re in need of a new high quality sheet set, today presents a good opportunity to pick one up. When you use code CLINK during checkout, you’ll get $33 off, knocking the price of a queen percale sheet set down to $107 in a variety of colors. Casper often offers discount codes on their mattresses but finding a code on their well-regarded sheets is less common.
Casper sheets are our upgrade pick in our Best Sheets guide. Preethi Gopinath writes, “If you’re a fan of percale sheets and willing to pay a little more, Casper’s The Casper Sheets are even more crisp and dry-feeling against the skin. These wrinkled more than the L.L.Bean set, but not so much that the sheets looked messy. Some of our testers also thought these sheets felt a little lighter than those from L.L.Bean. We think this is a good choice if you tend to overheat while sleeping, as these will keep you even cooler than the L.L.Bean sheets will in warm weather.”
Street Price: $150 MSRP: $170 Deal Price: $107
An excellent deal and the lowest price we’ve seen on this Persian-Rugs brand 3028 Moroccan Trellis area rug (in gray). This 8′ X 11′ rug is generally priced around $150 – $160 with occasional sales dropping it under $130. Those sales have become more frequent of late, and we’ve posted it as low as $120, but at $107, this is the lowest price recorded and worth a look for anyone with a need for a large area rug.
The 3028 Moroccan Trellis area rug is a recommended rug in our Best Area Rugs Under $300 guide. Calling it, “A super soft, cheap rug for living and bedrooms,” Shannon Palus goes on to write, “Out of all the rugs we tested, this Moroccan Trellis Rug was our favorite of the lower budget options. At just a few cents more per square foot than the Lowe’s tiles, it’s the second-cheapest rug that we like—and it’s softer than other rugs at a similar price. It will make a living room or bedroom instantly look more homey and cozy without costing you a lot. It’s slightly cushy, but not pillow-comfy (unlike the small shag rug I tested in my bedroom). We’ve found that cat barf is easy to clean off the light-gray version. Amazon reviewers agree that it’s a good buy: “What an incredible rug for the price,” wrote one. “It’s nice and fluffy and the color is exactly as advertised.””
Street Price: $70 MSRP: $180 Deal Price: $47
While we’ve seen our top roaster go in and out of stock for the past two weeks, it’s finally back in stock at the desired deal price. Besides the recent sales, this is the lowest deal price we’ve seen. It’s rare to see this roaster under $50, so it’s a great deal price to pick up this roaster. This deal is only available to Prime members.
The Cuisinart MCP117-16BR MultiClad 16-Inch Rectangular Roaster is our top pick in our guide to the best roasting pan. Lesley Stockton wrote, “The Cuisinart MCP117-16BR MultiClad Pro Stainless 16-Inch Rectangular Roaster with Rack is a great value. With tri-ply construction throughout (not just in the bottom) for even heat distribution, this pan seared well on the stove and roasted evenly in the oven. Models with tri-ply only in the bottom (or made purely of stainless steel) buckled and scorched on the burners whether making gravy from pan drippings or searing meat. The Cuisinart’s flat bottom made for easier gravy-making and searing than models with raised middles or ridged bottoms. Along with other features like large upright handles that are secured with heavy-duty rivets, a stainless steel V-rack, and heavy-duty construction that aced both oven and stovetop tests, this pan is an exceptional value.”
Street Price: $65 MSRP: $70 Deal Price: $46
Here’s a new low price on the Seville Classics laundry hamper. This comes in about $5 below the previous lows, making for a new best price. The previous sales have been very brief, so it’s unlikely that this sale will last longer than a day or two.
The Seville Classics Water Hyacinth Oval Double Hamper is our aesthetic pick in our guide to the best laundry basket. Chris Heinonen wrote, “Some people also want a more stylish hamper that can be left out in the bedroom. It doesn’t perform any better, or even as well, as our previous picks, but if appearance really is your primary concern, the Seville Classics Hand-Woven Oval Double Hamper will keep your laundry sorted and the wicker looks much nicer in a bedroom than plastic hampers do. There are two bins to allow for easy sorting of lights and darks. It also features removable canvas bags that are easy to take out and carry while leaving the heavier hamper behind. This also keeps the wicker from snagging your clothes. It’s much more expensive than anything else we reviewed, and you will still need a laundry basket to transport clean, folded clothes, but it is the most functional pick of the better-looking hampers.”
Street Price: $35 MSRP: $40 Deal Price: $27
If you’re in the market for an immersion blender but don’t have a lot to spend, this Cuisinart CSB-75BC is nicely discounted, currently matching our posted low. While it has historically seen one slightly lower price, that was a few years back, so this is about as low as we’d anticipate seeing this item. Shipping is free with Prime.
The Cuisinart CSB-75BC Smart Stick is our budget pick in our Best Immersion Blender guide. Christine Cyr Clisset and Michael Sullivan write, “When it comes to blenders (upright and immersion), we’ve found that you really do get what you pay for. The Cuisinart CSB-75BC Smart Stick Immersion Blender makes thicker textures than the Breville, its handle feels much cheaper, and overall it has a flimsier build. But for its price, it’s surprisingly powerful—especially compared with other models in this price category. We think this is a good buy if you plan on using an immersion blender only a couple of times a month, or if you don’t mind using a lower-quality machine. This doesn’t come with any attachments, such as a chopper or whisk, so it’s really only good for pureeing soups, smoothies, or sauces.
Street Price: $550 MSRP: $650 Deal Price: $430
This is a great drop in price on the Airmega 300 and a new low. While the Airmega has seen multiple sales over the the past year, this deal drops it more than $100 from its street price. Severe allergy sufferers take note – this is a great discount and the last decent sale we saw on this item saw it go out of stock quickly.
The Coway Airmega 300 is our extreme cases upgrade pick for the best air purifier. John Holecek wrote, “If you have severe allergies or other serious health issues related to airborne particles, or if you need to purify the air in a seriously large space, we have a new step-up pick: the Airmega 300. This is a large but attractive machine; it’s HEPA-rated and rated to clear spaces of about 500 square feet at five complete air-changes per hour (about 1.5 times the coverage of the Coway and Winix), or 1,250 square feet at two complete air-changes. Its unique twin filters permit very high airflow, allowing it to run on lower settings when the air is relatively clean (quieter, less energy) or to rapidly filter very large volumes of air on the highest setting, as you might when allergens or pollution are elevated. In our test, it gave the overall second-best air-purification performance—more a function of its higher airflow and dual filters than inherently superior filtration.”
Street Price: $125 MSRP: $130 Deal Price: $92
This is a great deal on our top pick showerhead, just matching the previous lowest price we’ve seen. We’ve only seen this showerhead go on sale briefly every few months, with the last one during Black Friday sales, and the one before that during the summer. It’s unlikely that this sale will last, and it’ll probably be a few months before we see a good sale again, so it’s a great time to pick one up.
The Delta In2ition 58480 is our top pick in our guide to the best showerheads. Tim Heffernan wrote, “The Delta In2ition 58480 combines the simplicity of a wall-mounted showerhead and the utility of a handheld—switching between them is a matter of holstering or drawing the handheld unit. At 2 gallons of water per minute, it meets the strictest federal efficiency guidelines, yet delivers satisfying results on multiple spray settings, from a gentle “rainshower” to a powerful massage. The 58480 replaces this guide’s former handheld pick, the similar Delta 58471, an excellent product many of our readers and a few editors use and love. This new Delta is more efficient than the other one’s 2.5 gpm, and its gentler spray options are more comfortable, which really helps when bathing kids or pets. The hardware installs in seconds with only an adjustable wrench, and includes a flexible, stretchable, tough stainless steel hose—superior to competitors in its price range, which often have stiff, non-stretch plastic hoses or complex installation requirements. It’s not cheap, but given its mix of practicality, pleasure, and top-shelf components, we consider it a worthy value.”
Street Price: $44 MSRP: $55 Deal Price: $38
This is a nice deal on our top dish rack pick, matching the low price of a few weeks ago. The low prior that in recent years was $40, so this sale drops the price a few dollars below that mark and is about as low as we’d expect to see this item. The previous sales on this dish rack have been pretty pretty short-lived, so it’s unlikely that this deal will last long.
The Polder 4-Piece Advantage Dish Rack System is our top pick in our guide to the best dish rack. Rena Behar wrote, “In a field crowded with under-performing or overpriced dish racks, the Polder 4-Piece Advantage Dish Rack System came out on top not because of outstanding performance on any particular metric, but because it didn’t have any major flaws among the qualities we looked at, and it offered a great overall balance compared with the competition. It was durable, did what it was supposed to do reasonably well, and didn’t cost a (relative) bundle. According to a reader survey we did for our 2016 update, the major complaints people have about their current dish racks are low capacity and lack of mold resistance, and the Polder should have no issues with either.”
Street Price: $500 MSRP: $500 Deal Price: $450
This is a nice $50 drop in price on our electric lawnmower pick from EGO. We haven’t seen many deals on this electric lawnmower, so while it isn’t a huge drop from the street price, it is the best we’ve seen. It’s available for free shipping and free in-store pickup.
The EGO LM2101 56-Volt Cordless is our cordless, battery-powered pick in our guide to the best lawnmower. Doug Mahoney wrote, “If you’d rather not deal with the seasonal maintenance and exhaust associated with gas-powered engines, we like the battery-powered EGO LM2101 56-Volt Cordless Lawn Mower. This replaces our previous pick, the EGO LM2001. This new version has a slightly larger cutting deck and comes with a more powerful battery. At about $500 at the time of writing, there’s no doubt that the LM2101 is an expensive mower, but it has a very good reputation for easy handling, compact storage, and strong power. It is well-liked by both professional reviewers and homeowners. The downside is that the battery only offers about 45 minutes of mowing time (but with a relatively short 40-minute charging time), so it’s best for lawns of a quarter of an acre or less.”
