Victorinox Flexible Boning Knife

Street Price: $33 MSRP: $40 Deal Price: $23

Victorinox Flexible Boning Knife
The best price we've seen since the start of the year.
While we used to regularly see this for $23 during 2015, this knife shot up to $33 at the start of the year and it hasn’t dropped since. This drop gives you plenty of time to get ready for any holiday carving.

The Victorinox Flexible Boning Knife is our boning knife pick in our Thanksgiving guide. The SH staff wrote, “The Cook’s Illustrated pick, as well as the top-selling and top-rated Amazon pick, is the Victorinox 6-Inch Flexible Boning Knife with Fibrox Handle. If you don’t want to get a dedicated knife, the tip of your chef’s knife can handle this small task, albeit with less finesse.”

Shelf Reliance Deluxe BPA Free 55-Gallon Barrel Water Storage System

Street Price: $130 MSRP: $160 Deal Price: $110

Shelf Reliance Deluxe BPA Free 55-Gallon Barrel Water Storage System
Good drop in price on 55-gallon barrel and Aquamira water filtration pump from Costco, $5 surcharge for non-members
This is a decent drop in price on this Nutristore water barrel + Aquamira filtration pump combo from Costco. It’s $20 off the normal Costco price and $50 below the cost of the individual components bought separately. If you’re not a Costco member, there is a $5.50 “non-member” surcharge added on to the total, but it’s still a pretty good price for this water barrel. If you’re a Costco member, just enter your membership number during checkout and the surcharge is removed. Shipping and handling is free if you choose the standard ground delivery option.

The Nutristore Shelf Reliance Deluxe BPA Free 55-Gallon Barrel Water Storage System is our water storage for more than two people pick in our guide on the best emergency preparedness supplies. Kalee Thompson wrote, “This large drum made of food-grade plastic allows you to store an entire family’s supply of water for five years before refreshing. We liked the components that come with this brand best, but we advise choosing a drum in this category primarily on price.”

On how long the water will last in the barrel, “Whether you choose to treat your water when you put it in the drum or when you take it out, tap water sealed tight in a dedicated water drum like this can last for at least five years, according to water-quality scientist Max Gyllenskog (PDF).’

Juki HZL-F300 Sewing and Quilting Machine

Street Price: $600 MSRP: $1,000 Deal Price: $506

Juki HZL-F300 Sewing and Quilting Machine
Big drop in price on our quilting pick for best intermediate sewing machine
This is a great drop in price and a new low, bringing it $100 below the current street price. While the street price has had small drops from the $600 dollar mark, we haven’t seen a significant drop in price like this in years.

The Juki HZL-F300 is our quilting pick in our guide for the best intermediate sewing machines. Jackie Reeve wrote, “If you’re mostly interested in quilting, we like the Juki HZL-F300. It has a larger work surface than our other picks, which makes it better for sewing bed-sized quilts. It’s heavy enough that it won’t move around on your sewing table if you’re sewing a large blanket, and it also sews fast enough to make it convenient for free-motion quilting.”

Coway Airmega 300

Street Price: $650 MSRP: $650 Deal Price: $560

Coway Airmega 300
A nice drop in price from our step-up pick for best air purifier.
This is the first deal that we’ve seen on this heavy duty air purifier. Normally retailing for $650, this deal drops the price by $90 bucks, bringing it down to a somewhat more reasonable $560. While this air purifier is way more than what most people need, if you have severe allergies, health issues, or very bad air quality, this is a very good price for this heavy duty Coway.

The Coway Airmega 300 is our step-up 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.”

Werner FS106 6-ft Fiberglass Single-Sided Stepladder

Street Price: $80 MSRP: $80 Deal Price: $60

Werner FS106 6-ft Fiberglass Single-Sided Stepladder
In-store pickup only - no shipping options available.
Update 2 : We initially posted this at $60, it dropped to $50 for a week, and it’s back up to $60.

This deal matches the previous low we featured before, but it comes with a major caveat: this ladder is only available for in-store pickup. While we previously recommended the in-store pickup option since it saved you $10, we also understand that not everyone has the means or time to go pickup a 10-ft ladder from where ever the nearest Home Depot is. So if you’ve got the transportation and straps necessary to pick up the ladder, it’s a great price if you’re in the market for a ladder. But if you don’t have the means or time to pick it up, we’d suggest waiting until a shipping option is available.

The Werner FS106 6-ft Type-1 Fiberglass Single-Sided Stepladder is our runner-up pick in the best ladders guide. Doug Mahoney wrote, “If the Gorilla is unavailable, we also like the Werner FS106 6 ft Type I Fiberglass Single Sided Stepladder. This traditional stepladder doesn’t have wide top steps but does offer a number of add-on accessories (available separately) that we found to be useful, including a utility bucket, a tool hook, and a paint cup. The FS106 has excellent build quality, and in our tests it hardly wobbled at all, even while we stood on it and aggressively shifted our weight around.”

Maytag MVWB755DW Top Load Washer

Street Price: $750 MSRP: $750 Deal Price: $513

Maytag MVWB755DW Top Load Washer
A big drop in price on our new pick for best top load washer, with matching dryer also on sale
Update : This went up $13 since we posted it.

This is a great deals on a Maytag top load washer that will soon be featured in the updated version of our best washer and dryer guide. Normally around $700 each, the top load washer (and the matching dryer) are on sale for 30% off, saving you $250 dollars. If having a matching dryer is important to you, the MEDB755DW Electric Dryer is also on sale for $500, or if you prefer a gas dryer, the MGDB755DW Gas Dryer is available for $600.

The Maytag MVWB755DW Top Load Washer with Steam is our new pick for best top loading washer in an update coming to the best washer and dryer guide. Liam McCabe wrote, “We think front loaders are the better washers. But if you know you want a top loader, this is an affordable model with a huge capacity and a lot of features that you’ll only find in pricier washers.”

The MVWB755DW has a rating of 4.4 stars based on over 1000 reviews on Home Depot.

Porter-Cable PCCK600LB 20-Volt 1/2-Inch Lithium-ion Drill/Driver Kit

Street Price: $80 MSRP: $80 Deal Price: $70

Porter-Cable PCCK600LB 20-Volt 1/2-Inch Lithium-ion Drill/Driver Kit
The first time we've seen a drop on the single battery version of our pick.
The first time we’ve seen a drop on this already affordable option. We recommend the two battery version, but if you’re fine with a single battery, it’s on sale for $10 off.

The Porter-Cable PCCK600LB is our runner-up upgrade pick for the best drill. Doug Mahoney said, “The 20-volt Porter-Cable isn’t the most powerful drill in its class, but it delivers competitive performance and features at a lower price than the competition.”

In terms of value, “But as an 18-volt, it’s a deal. Priced consistently lower than most of the others in the category, the Porter-Cable was one of only two 18-volts to come with a full set of features. It has an LED, belt hook, onboard bit storage, and a battery gauge. The LED is positioned above the trigger, so it’s not as easy to see as the Bosch’s light. And the battery gauge is on the tool (not the battery itself), so to check the life of a spare battery, you have to click the battery into the tool.”

Victorinox Fibrox Pro 10.25-inch Serrated Curved Bread Knife

Street Price: $55 MSRP: $55 Deal Price: $35

Top Pick
Victorinox Fibrox Pro 10.25-inch Serrated Curved Bread Knife
Lowest price we've seen on this knife in years
Update : This is up $5 from the price we posted it at.

This is the lowest price we’ve seen on this bread knife, and a huge drop in savings. The price of this knife has been on sale somewhat regularly over the couple of months, but it always jumps back up to $55. At $30, this is the lowest we’ve seen since we started tracking it, and the lowest sale price in well over a year.

The Victorinox Fibrox Pro 10.25-Inch Serrated Curved Bread Knife is our pick in the Best Serrated Knife guide. Lesley Stockton wrote, “The Victorinox Fibrox Pro 10.25-Inch Serrated Curved Bread Knife is the best serrated knife because it has the ideal medium-size pointed serrations, a thin blade, and a perfect length of 10 inches. It’s also a terrific value. Also, its comfortable ergonomic handle makes long prepping tasks easier. It saws through tough loaves of bread with clean precision and leaves the crust and crumb intact no matter how thin the slices. The thin curved blade is ideal for a wide range of tasks—not just breads and pastries—including soft fruits and vegetables. This knife smoked the competition in our tests by consistently making perfect slices of bread and tomatoes. Other knives, particularly the offset models, sliced unevenly and offered less control.”
