The West Elm Belgian Flax Linen Sheet Set is our pick in the Best Linen Sheets guide. Christine Cyr Clisset wrote, “The West Elm Belgian Flax Linen Sheet Set beat the rest because these sheets were among the softest, and they were among the only ones for which we found no complaints about the material wearing out after a few years. This is also one of the least expensive linen sheet sets we’ve found.”
For more details on the comfort and texture of the sheets, “The West Elm sheets feel airy. They manage to sit lightly on the skin while also providing some weight. Similar to any linen fabric, these sheets crush easily and hold on to wrinkles, but they didn’t wrinkle any worse than the other sets we tested. They come in a nice selection of four or five colors (depending on availability), and you can purchase a matching duvet cover.”

This is best deal we’ve ever seen on this single burner stove, and the first big drop in over a year.
The Bayou Classic Single Burner Patio Stove is our top pick stove in the Best Turkey Fryer guide. Ganda Suthivarakom wrote, “We like this burner because it’s solidly built, powerful, and stable. We found that the flame got hot and spread wide, licking up the sides of the pot. It earned 4.5 stars over 196 customer reviews, garnering raves for its high-powered output. The stove comes with an adjustable 10 PSI regulator, which generates plenty of heat. Home Depot lists this model as putting out 55,000 BTUs. We pair this pot with the Bayou Classic Single Burner Patio Stove ($50). ”
On what to look for in choosing a stove for frying turkeys, Hunter Lewis, Executive Editor of Southern Living, said, “What matters is that the base is sturdy and that a heavy pot of oil will sit on it in a safe way.” Suthivarakom added, “This solidly-constructed model has a sturdy 16” square base on four welded legs. The more I use it, the more glad I am for its wide base.”
Street Price: $20 MSRP: $20 Deal Price: $15
The Ryobi 60-Piece Drill and Drive Kit is our runner-up pick for the best drill bit set. Doug Mahoney said, “If you can’t get your hands on the Ryobi 90-piece set, the next best option is theRyobi 60-Piece Drill and Drive Kit. This smaller kit has most of the same items, but in more limited quantities: There’s only one hole saw and paddle bit (instead of four apiece), and it’s missing the depth stops and the 2-inch driver bits.”
