Kitchen Appliance Deals
This highly coveted countertop accessory is on sale yet again for Cyber Monday. While it typically sits on registries galore, the KitchenAid Professional 5 Quart Stand Mixer is almost 50 percent off, which is basically the next best thing to getting it as a gift. If you’re looking to save on space, the KitchenAid Artisan Mini 3.5 Quart is on sale for $260 ($110 off)—a little more expensive than the 5-quart model, but better for smaller kitchens and households.
Balmuda’s The Toaster (8/10, WIRED Reviewed) is great for heating a variety of different kinds of bread. You can pick from four different specific modes including Bread Mode, Sandwich Bread Mode, Pizza Mode, and Pastry Mode. There’s also Oven Mode for things like cookies and frozen food. It also rarely goes on sale, so if you’ve been eyeing it, we highly recommend jumping on this deal.
This toaster oven (7/10, WIRED Reviewed) isn’t fancy or anything, but it does a solid job at roasting, baking, and reheating. We weren’t fans of the domed pans that it comes with, but quarter-sheet pans work well. So, if you’re fine with shelling out an extra $10 to $20 on one or two pans, or you already own some, this is a solid option—especially if your current toaster oven is on its last legs.
The Anova Precision Oven (8/10, WIRED Recommends) comes with the same functions as a standard oven like baking and broiling. But it also provides sous-vide style results—sans water baths and bags—using steam. You can use it took cook steaks, salmon, pork tenderloin, and more, without having to worry about overcooking it. WIRED Contributor Joe Ray says it’s a great appliance if you’re a “natural tinkerer in the kitchen,” and if you have room on your countertop for it.
Instant Pots are a crowd favorite, to say the least, so it’s always a steal when they go on sale. With its 6-quart capacity, the Instant Pot Pro has 28 different settings. These settings let you pressure cook, slow cook, sous-vide, and even make yogurt—multitasking at its finest.
Sometimes TikTok tells you to buy things you don’t need, but other times it gets it just right. We love the original Dash Mini Waffle Maker, so suffice it to say we think it’s even better when you add cute hearts. With a Dash, you’ll get an easily-cleanable, compact waffle maker for all your Leslie Knope–inspired breakfast needs.
Much like the KitchenAid Stand Mixer, the Vitamix 5200 is a staple for housewarmings and wedding registries. You don’t have to go throw a major life change to justify buying it, though—WIRED writer Joe Ray wanted to explore making new cuisines and fell in love with it. Whether you’re blending smoothies, soups, or sauces, this mixer is powerful and durable. This is definitely a great opportunity to upgrade your blender.
If you love to start your day with a smoothie or prefer homemade nut butters to store-bought, the Vitamix 6500 Pro Blender has a strong motor that is plenty capable to take on either of those tasks and more. It’s not the top-of-the-line Vitamix, but it’ll still be able to handle anything you throw at it.
I love a smoothie, but I don’t always want to deal with a big-ass blender for my mango-flavored musings. We haven’t tested the Ninja Nutriblender Pro, but we’re confident it’s a solid solution for folks in the same scenario as I am. The downward-facing blades keep food from escaping, and the single-serve size makes it easier to blend when you’re on the go.
Nothing sounds better than having a fresh pizza straight out of the oven, with its bubbly cheese and thin, charred crust. DiGiorno can’t quite replicate that taste, but the Gozney Roccbox could. It’s a little hefty for a pizza oven—though not as big as the Gozney Dome—but it’s great for hosting pizza parties … or just making and eating a ton of pizza.
We’re also fans of Ooni’s Koda pizza oven (8/10, WIRED Recommends). It’s small, lightweight, and easily portable, plus large enough to fit a 10-inch Lodge cast iron skillet. The one drawback is that, unlike Ooni’s other ovens, you can’t store the Koda outdoors for extended periods of time.
Stasher is having a sitewide sale. These bags are a WIRED Gear team favorite. They’re a silicone replacement for single-use ziplock bags, and they come in multiple sizes for all your needs, like sandwiches and snacks, or something smaller to hold your bolts and screws together. They’re dishwasher-, freezer-, and microwave-safe,
The Thermapen One is one of the best ways to improve your grilling/roasting/baking game. It gives accurate temperature readings in less than a second, the battery lasts forever, and it’s easy to read the display no matter what weird angle you have to use it at. It rarely goes on sale, and this is the lowest price we’ve seen this year.
Put a garden on your countertop. Grow herbs, lettuce, and tiny tomatoes in this all-in-one hydroponic setup. It’s got a mobile app to help out new gardeners and in our testing, it grew herbs remarkably fast.
If touchscreens and wireless connections are your thing, the Vitamix Ascent has you covered. This blender is a little smaller than the 5200, but what it lacks in volume it makes up for in tech. For example, the smart base can detect what top you attach and adjust accordingly to ensure all your blending needs are met.
All-Clad pots and pans are almost heirloom-worthy additions to your cookware. I’m not kidding—my in-laws gifted us some that were more than 10 years old before we got our own new set, and they worked great. All-Clad tends to be on the pricier side, so now is a good time to invest in this classic, durable stainless steel set.
Much like our hand-me-down All-Clad, my husband and I had Cuisinart pots and pans for many years. They lasted us the four years of living together before we got our newlywed set, cooking evenly and looking slick. This is definitely a great starter set for folks who aren’t ready to drop so much on All-Clad but still want something that will stick around for a while.
If you’re looking for an alternative to nonstick pans (since the EPA is expected to declare many Teflon coatings as hazardous), we recommend Oxo’s Ceramic Professional Non-Stick Frypan. It’s free of PFAS (perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances), comfortable to use, and we found no issues with sticking. We specifically tested the 8-inch version, but the larger 12-inch size is on sale.
This isn’t the craziest discount, but this is our go-to skillet in our roundup of best pots and pans. It’s affordable, spacious, and deep enough for a shallow fry, does an excellent job of searing, and is super durable. And while it’s not dishwasher safe, washing it with just soap and water will do the trick.
This isn’t just an Instagram accessory for foodies and homemakers—Le Creuset Dutch Ovens are also heirloom-worthy kitchen items. These are great for stews, stocks, and even baking bread. We recommend the 7.25-Quart version, but this 5.25-Quart dutch oven is great, too.
For those who prefer nonstick cookware, All-Clad has this five-piece set on sale. What’s special about this compared to other nonstick pots and pans is that the set is anodized, meaning it has a protective layer of oxide. Nonstick coating wears off over time, and this process keeps the set more durable.
Coffee Machine Deals
This is our favorite all-in-one option for those who want to upgrade their basic espresso maker. It includes a pressure gauge (great for fine-tuning your grind and tamping skills), a built-in burr grinder, and a built-in hot water dispenser. It also allows you to adjust the brew temperature slightly if you want to experiment a bit.
It’s no secret that WIRED writer Jaina Grey likes De’Longhi espresso machines. However, they often cost a pretty penny, so when there’s a sale we have to holler. The Bar Pump Espresso and Cappuccino Machine is a good intro espresso machine that won’t break the bank, especially at under $200 for Cyber Monday. If you want something a little more involved, the De’Longhi La Specialista Arte Espresso Machine is also on sale for $500 ($200 off).
Life comes at you fast. In order to be ready for anything, a Keurig coffee-maker can help you stay up and ready. Not only is the K-Supreme easy to use, but you can also pair it with the Keurig-brand reusable filter to reduce your overall waste footprint.
The two most important things for a drip coffee maker are getting the beans wet quickly and uniformly. This Hamilton Beach machine has the perfect cone shape for just that. Though we haven’t tested it, resident WIRED coffee expert Jaina Grey approves, given the build.
Fellow’s Stagg EKG kettle has a gooseneck spout that’s perfect for those who love making pour-over coffee—giving you precise control when pouring water over the coffee grounds. There’s also a temperature control knob and LCD display, allowing you to heat up water at any temperature. So, it’s great for tea lovers too.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve forgotten about a warm cup of tea for an hour, only to then accidentally take a sip of room-temperature sadness. The Ember Mug is a great solution, letting you sip throughout the day while keeping your cuppa the perfect temperature. This mug connects to an app and lets you adjust the temperature from 120 to 145 degrees, and it has a battery that lasts for about an hour and a half, giving you plenty of time to enjoy your earl grey.
Smart Display and Smart Speaker Deals
Lenovo’s Smart Clock (2nd Gen) Smart Display and Dock has been a WIRED favorite since the earliest iteration came out. The second generation has an LCD touchscreen and better-sounding speakers than earlier version. At half-off, it’s definitely a good deal to add to your cart.
The Google Nest Hub Smart Display can do everything from answer your cooking questions in the kitchen to showing your favorite photos from Santorini. This WIRED-recommended display doesn’t invade your personal space either—it doesn’t have a camera (unlike many others in the market), so you don’t have to worry about placing it in more private household areas. It’s half-off, so it’s a good time to snag it.
The Amazon Echo Show 8 is our favorite Alexa-powered smart display. The 8-inch screen is a great size for making video calls (there’s also an auto-pan and zoom feature to keep you in frame), reading recipes, and streaming content. Its compact size makes it super ideal for your kitchen counter or nightstand too. There’s a physical switch that cuts power to the camera and mic for added privacy. If you want a compact display for your bedside table, consider the Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) for $35 ($50 off).
If you want a larger screen, the Echo Show 10 has a 10-inch smart display that also swivels almost 360 degrees (which can follow you while you’re on a video call or when viewing a recipe). You’ll also get better audio quality.
With a 15.6-inch Full HD display, this is Amazon’s largest Echo smart display to date. It also has a redesigned home screen with widgets for to-do lists, calendars, shopping lists, support for picture-in-picture mode, and more. You can use it to stream Prime Video, Netflix, and Hulu, or display art and family photos. There’s a 5-megapixel camera and mics built-in for video calls as well (which you can turn off for privacy). We haven’t tested it yet.
If you’re not overly concerned with the audio quality of your smart speaker, then you can save a lot of money with the Echo Dot. It’s smaller, with simpler speakers (though they’re still not bad), and can do all the same things that a full-size Echo can.
The new kids’ version of the Echo Dot comes with some of the same upgrades as the standard Echo Dot, including gesture controls. It’s available in two new adorable designs: an owl and a dragon. As with past models, you’ll have access to parental controls and one year of Amazon Kids+.
The standard Amazon Echo (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is a handy tool for setting timers, asking trivia questions, and playing music. It impressed us with room-filling sound, and a 3.5-mm output to connect it to larger sound systems. It’s a bit bigger than previous Echo models though, so keep that in mind.
The Nest Mini (2nd Gen) Smart Speaker improved light-years since the previous Mini. It sounds better, the machine learns faster, and it’s wall-mountable, improving your overall listening and Assistant experience. It’s over 50 percent off now, too, so let your Google devices get the glow up they deserve.
Smart Lights and Plugs
It’s a tiny deal, but this might make it a bit more stomachable to get several for the house. This is our favorite smart plug. It’s compact, so it’s easy to fit a few on a power strip, and it won’t obstruct the second plug on a wall outlet. The Kasa app is simple to use and features two-factor authentication for an extra layer of security.
Need a smart plug to use outside? It’s time to set up those holiday decorations, after all. We like this one. It’s made to withstand the elements, and you get two smart plugs without having to take up two plugs on the wall.
These modular bars are easy to fit on the wall and are well-built. You get a range of colors to choose from via the app, plus tons of animated scenes. It works with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, so you can use your voice to turn them on or off.
These smart lighting lights (8/10, WIRED Recommends) have joints that stick to the wall to combine multiple pieces into whatever pattern you like. The light shoots out toward the wall, so it’s not glaring and creates a nice ambient effect. One of the hexagonal joints serves as a physical control unit, but you can also use the app.
This light strip is bright and has beautiful colors, plus you can change nearly everything in the Hue app. You can cut the strip up or extend it to fit your space, but you should pair it with the Hue Hub so for the fastest operation. It works with Google Assistant, Alexa, HomeKit, IFTTT, and Cortana.
Streaming and Audio Deals
If you prefer Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant and watch mainly Prime Video content, go with this streaming stick. It works with most apps, but it is obviously geared toward Prime shows and movies. There’s a picture-in-picture feature so you can pull up your security camera feed without interrupting your current binge. The cheaper Fire TV Stick 4K is $25 ($25 off). That one doesn’t have Wi-Fi 6 support and has slightly less internal memory.
The Chromecast With Google TV (8/10, WIRED Recommends) finally brought the Chromecast in line with other streaming sticks that have a physical remote and a full TV interface. It’s one of the easiest streaming sticks (well, dongle really) to use, and I particularly like that you can add movies or TV shows to your watch list from Google search results and they’ll show up in the Chromecast’s interface.
Roku’s Streaming Stick 4K Plus, which is slightly discounted at Amazon right now, is our recommended Roku for most people, but this one is similar. It’s cheaper and the remote lacks hands-free voice control. Even though the above Chromecast has a nicer interface, Roku still makes our favorite streaming devices. They’re just easier for most people to navigate and have nearly every service under the sun.
Roku’s Streambar is a great option if you want to upgrade your TV’s sound while playing your favorite shows and movies. It also has a built-in Roku streaming interface, making it a solid all-on-one gadget for smaller rooms.
This soundbar (8/10, WIRED Recommends) with Dolby Atmos isn’t Vizio’s latest, but it’s a great budget option. It won’t fill a huge space with sound, but with dedicated surround speakers and a subwoofer, it’s plenty for an apartment.
This Audio-Technica turntable is our budget pick for the Best Turntables. It pairs with a Bluetooth speaker or you can plug it directly into an actual stereo. It’s not for audiophiles, but it’s for those of us who just want a nice record player to listen to over dinner.
Vacuum and Air Purifier Deals
Whoever coined the phrase “it’s raining cats and dogs” must have been cleaning up after their pet because they make a mess absolutely everywhere. The Dyson Cyclone V10 Animal makes it easier to clean up with its cordless design and powerful suction. This isn’t the lowest we’ve seen this cordless vacuum go on sale, but it’s still a pretty good deal.
Dyson’s V12 Detect Slim (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is excellent for studio or one-bedroom apartments with mostly hard floorings and the occasional carpet or rug. The compact but nimble vacuum has powerful suction and comes with a variety of useful attachments. But our favorite one is the Laser Slim Fluffy cleaner head—it shoots out a green light that helps you spot and catch microscopic dust that’s typically invisible to the naked eye.
The V15 Detect holds the title of best Dyson vacuum in our roundup. As with the V12, it has the same laser cleaner head for smaller dust particles. But with a larger dust bin and more suction power, it’s certainly a better option for larger homes or multi-room spaces.
The Roomba J7+ is the best of the best as far as robot vacuums are concerned. The precise navigation paired with powerful suction is top-of-the-line, giving you the ease of hands-free cleaning and peace of mind that it’ll be done well. It even auto-empties the dustbin, so you don’t have to worry about keeping up with the debris too often.
Everyone wants to breathe easier. For those with allergies, the Honeywell Insight HEPA is a great air purifier for rooms up to 500 square feet, clearing the air of dust, dander, and even cooking odors.
WIRED reviews editor Julian Chokkattu has been testing this air purifier for a few months and likes it. It can clear the air in a 517-square-foot room within 26 minutes. When it detects particles in the room (like when he cooks bacon, for example) it roars alive—but it’s not terribly loud. It is, however, on the larger side so you’ll need to make space for it. It also connects to the Smartmi app, allowing you to control it remotely (with support for Google Assistant and Alexa). He’s also testing the Smartmi P1, complete with HomeKit support. It’s also on sale for $108 ($69 off) and better for smaller rooms.
Coway’s Airmega 200m is best for small rooms—it’s effective for spaces up to 361 square feet. The compact design will also easily fit into the corner of your bedroom. With an included air quality monitor, it turns the machine off when it doesn’t detect pollution and automatically increases the fan speed if it does.
If your protective over your interior decor, Coway’s Airmega 150 is our favorite attractive option to recommend. It’s also built for small rooms (up to 214 square feet) and comes with intuitive touch controls, a color-coded air monitor light, and a right indicator that alerts you when it’s time to change the HEPA filter of the deodorization.
The Pure Fan Auto is perfect for light sleepers since it’s whisper-quiet. In addition to its purifying capabilities—it can cycle air five times an hour in a 326-square-foot room—it also has a fan that can help cool you down a bit. There’s also a Night mode that turns the fan to its lowest setting and shuts off the air quality indicator light. There’s also the more simple Blueair Pure 411 Auto, which automatically turns up the fan speed when it detects particles. It’s on sale for $98 ($42 off).
Security Camera Deals
As the holidays near, it’s important to keep an eye out for all of your deliveries—you wouldn’t want someone to steal from Santa’s delivery sleigh. The Nest Cam is one of WIRED’s favorite outdoor security cameras given its easy set-up, seamless Google integration, and 130-degree field of view. Santa may be able to do a lot, but sometimes he’s so busy checking his list even he needs help safe-guarding your gifts.
We’re still in the process of testing the Blink Video Doorbell, but we gave it an honorable mention in our Best Video Doorbell Cameras guide. It’s not only affordable, but it also works with Alexa and comes in both a tethered and battery-powered version. This bundle includes two of Blink’s outdoor cameras, which will give you broader coverage around your home (other bundles are on sale as well). This one is the lowest price we’ve tracked.
Amazon recently launched this new mount for its Blink Mini camera, so we haven’t tried it yet. It has the ability to pan and tilt, giving you a 360-degree view of any room. This bundle comes with the camera, but if you already own the Mini you can purchase the mount separately.
The boosted Pro version of our top affordable mesh router pick, the Deco XE75 Pro 3-pack offers up to 7,200 square feet of coverage, 6GHz band support, and a 2.5-G LAN port. The AI-driven mesh makes sure that the system delivers the best Wi-Fi it can, wherever you are in your house. The Deco app also allows for a quick and simple setup.
We love how easy Eero’s 6 Mesh System is to set up and use. We also had solid coverage and stable connectivity in our testing. Since Eero is owned by Amazon, you’ll get support for Alexa too. However, this is one of the slower systems we’ve tried (it struggled with long distances), but should work fine for most people. If you’re set on Eero specifically, the Eero Pro 6 is slightly faster—it’s on sale for $148 ($81 off).
If you’re looking to upgrade from your traditional toothbrush to a more powerful cleaner, look no further than Oral-B’s Pro 1000. It’s affordable and rechargeable. And while it’s been around for a while, it continues to beat the more expensive, feature-packed models.
Our favorite electric toothbrush is on sale for 50 percent off. The Colgate Hum is a smart brush that gathers data on your brushing habits and lets you earn points towards rewards like brush heads and such in the corresponding mobile app. It’s light, compact, and kept WIRED writer Medea Giordano from giving up on electric toothbrushes altogether.
Holiday stress keeping you up at night? The Hatch Restore can help you drift off into a peaceful sleep and wake up gently with its programmable morning and night routines. Plus, you can subscribe to a Hatch Sleep Membership and get even more sleep sounds, bedtime stories, and guided meditations. The Hatch Rest is also on sale for $60 ($10 off) with the coupon button, so your kids can crash more easily at night, too.
This isn’t the greatest discount, but these sunset lamps make a great addition to any home. The small gadget projects halolike effects with pops of rainbow colors to make the space feel super cozy. All you have to do is place it on the floor, plug it in, and aim it toward a wall. It’s easy to understand why these sunset lamps have been trending all over TikTok.
