Kitchen Deals

Keurig K-Elite Coffee Maker + 44 K-Cups for $100 (Was $198)- This Keurig comes with 44 K-Cups of Laughing Man Columbia Huila coffee, which tastes pretty good, from our experience. It's great if you want to test the "strong brew" button. The K-Elite also does 4-12oz cups.

Vitamix 7500 64-Ounce Blender for $370 (was $529). One of the priciest blenders around is also a perennial WIRED favorite, renowned for its ability to reduce the toughest kale leaf to microscopic particles. This is a great time to grab a blender whose blades spin fast enough to heat soup through friction alone.

Instant Pot Duo for $60 (was $100).We've recommended an Instant Pot in multiple gift guides for new parents. It's one of the easiest and fastest ways to get some cooked calories into your mouth. If you can't find a good recipe, we've also tested Instant Pot cookbooks here.

Zojirushi 3-Cup Rice Cooker for $95 (was $130).We loved this rice cooker when we reviewed it. Cooking times of up to an hour will come as an unpleasant shock to anyone used to using an Instant Pot, but the timed function makes up for it and all your steamed or simmered grains will come out perfectly done.

Zojirushi 5.5-cup Rice Cooker for $143 (was $192). Since that one sold out, we found another Zoji that uses the same microcomputer to cook your grains. It just has a slightly higher capacity. Discount applies at checkout; make sure you add the coupon.

6-Quart Programmable Crock-Pot for $50 (was $60). Finally, a reliable Crock-Pot that you can pre-program in advance and has a locking lid for transporting your homemade soups and stews.

PicoBrew Model C Beer Brewing Appliance for $280 (was $549). Starts at 7 am PDT on Tuesday. Homebrewing is a lot of fun, but unless you have a lot of friends, it's hard to drink a full keg of beer every other week. The PicoBrew lets you fine-tune your recipes five liters at a time.

ChefSteps Joule Sous Vide for $148 (was $199). This sleek device will help you perfectly cook your veggies and proteins.

Kitchen-Aid 6-Quart Stand Mixer for $220 (was $390). A sturdy stand mixer is an indispensable kitchen item, useful for everything from mixing meatballs to whipping up pizza dough from scratch. KitchenAid's iconic mixers are usually expensive, but right now, they're 60 percent off. If you already have one, this is a perfect graduation gift or wedding present for someone else.

Smart Home Deals

Ecobee3 Thermostat with Three Sensors for $200 (was $289). While the Nest is synonymous with smart thermostats, we found that the ecobee's sensors were much more effective at keeping the temperature in every room in my house stable. We tested the ecobee4, but this bundle is a great price for three sensors instead of only one.

Walabot In-Wall Imager for $56 (was $70). I tried the Walabot at CES 2018 and it would be indispensable for anyone who is currently renovating their home. Nota bene: It doesn't work for iPhone users.

TP-Link Wi-Fi Smart Plug for $20 (was $28). This Wi-Fi-enabled plug lets you turn off your devices remotely and works with Alexa and Google Assistant.

iRobot Roomba 671 for $230 (was $350). Roomba's navigational capabilities and cleaning power were unsurpassed in all the robot vacuums that we tested. The Roomba 671 works with Alexa and is great for pet hair and a variety of different surfaces.

Eufy Robovac 11 for $160 (was $250). I tested this robot vacuum and it's quiet and easy to use. It's a great option for anyone looking to do light maintenance cleaning.

Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Rechargeable Toothbrush for $100 (was $200). This is the classiest, most easy to use, and most comfortable smart electric toothbrush around. Your teeth will thank you.

August 3rd-Gen Smart Lock for $111 (was $150). We loved August's pill-shaped, silver, Alexa-enabled smart lock when we reviewed it last year.

August Smart Lock Pro with Connect for $230 (was $279). If you find that the August's Bluetooth geofencing to be a little wonky, adding a Wi-Fi bridge will solve the problem.

Shark IONFlex DuoClean Cordless Stick Vacuum for $235 (was $369). Shark is doing its best to eat Dyson's lunch by offering the same cleaning power for a quarter of the price. Take even more off the list price on this convenient rechargeable stick vacuum.

Dyson V8 Cordless Vacuum for $365 (was $500). Or you could just go with the solid, reliable, Dyson stick vac. We loved the V7 and the V10, and the only difference between the three is battery life.

Black and Decker Lithium Drill for $35 (was $99). A surprisingly powerful cordless drill for the weight, and the price.

Tile Mate and Slim Combo Pack for $40 (was $60). We recommended the Tile in our Mother's Day gift guide, but it's also a great all-purpose product for people who can't seem to keep track of their wallets or keys. All different styles are on sale for Prime Day, but a combo pack offers the best value. Add item to basket to see full discount.

Fitness Gear Deals

Yeti Hopper Two for $175 (was $250). Yeti is known for making extremely coolers with excruciatingly high price tags that are, unfortunately, worth every penny. At least now, you won't have to spend as many of them.

Nokia Steel HR for $126 (was $180). Tip: Choose a size to see the deal price. The best fitness tracker is one that you'll actually use. The Nokia Steel HR tracks your step count and heart rate, pairs with the Nokia Health app, and is sleek and simple enough to pass for an everyday analog watch.

Fossil Q Men's Explorist Smartwatch for $153 (was $255). Speaking of watches that can conceivably pass for analog watches, this is a decent, great-looking Android smartwatch that is also dust- and splash-resistant. It comes in a variety of styles.

Fitbit Alta HR for $90 (was $120). Fitbit's small, stylish fitness tracker is an attractive and easy-to-use option for people who think most fitness trackers are uggo.

Garmin Vivoactive 3 GPS Watch for $200 (Was $270) - A great fitness watch with the benefit of Garmin's apps and know-how in the outdoor space.

Health Deals

LifeStraw Personal Water Filter for $10 (was $25). Whether you're camping, hiking, or traveling internationally, a light, small, portable, and packable water filter can save your life (or at least save you from a night or two of terrible tummy trouble). This is a great price for a water filter that doesn't require any batteries and won't make your water taste weird.

National Geographic DNA Test Kit for $50 (was $100). National Geographic uses the Helix platform to sequence your DNA, a clinical-level technology that sequences all 22,000 of your DNA's coding regions and has only recently become available to consumers. This is the obvious choice if you want a one-time donation that will eventually lead to all sorts of genetic insights as Helix's partner list grows.

23andMe Health and Ancestry Genetic Service for $100 (was $300). Another alternative is 23andMe's wildly popular personalized genetic reports.
