These glass airtight food jars are currently Amazon’s top seller in the hotly contested “Food Jars and Crocks” category, and you can save $14 on a set of two with promo code JVOA6P4T. If they keep just one bag of pistachios fresh, they’ll have already paid for themselves.
We’ve posted deals on Instant Pots before, but this one is unique in that it offers full smartphone control. The Instant Pot app includes tons of pre-programmed recipes, and the ability to add your own. Just select what you’re cooking, and the pressure cooker will automatically go through all of the necessary steps.
If you’re worried that you won’t get a ton of use out of this thing, note that in addition to standard pressure cooking, you can also use the Instant Pot as a slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, and more. If you own one, be sure to sound off in the comments!
You know what they say; once you go vacuum insulated stainless steel, you never go back. This 20 ounce bottle includes three different lids that you can swap depending on the situation, and can keep a cold drink cold for up to 24 hours, or a hot drink hot for up to 12. I own a similar bottle, and the effect is indistinguishable from magic.
Note: The code is only valid on the 20 ounce silver model.
Stainless steel drinking straws add a touch of class to everything from Coke Zero to Moscow Mules, and you can get eight of them today (four bent, four straight) for $11. Just add both items below to your cart, and use code KEE69H9P at checkout.
Update: This was out of stock for a few days, but now it’s available again with a short backorder.
The showerhead that came preinstalled in your home or apartment is probably terrible, but if you don’t have the cash to upgrade it to a Delta In2ition, the Delta 75152 is a fantastic option at under $20.
Aside from a single switch that toggles between 1.75 and 1 gallons per minute, this showerhead doesn’t have any notable features to speak of. But I can tell you from years of experience that its water coverage is beyond excellent. Each of the four valves uses Delta’s H2Okinetic system to agitate the water and create a full, perfectly dispersed wall of water, rather than four individual streams. It’s a difficult sensation to describe, but I absolutely recommend you try it for yourself.
With a good set of silicone cooking gloves, you’ll have full finger control when you handle hot pans in the kitchen. Hell, you could use them to just pick up a piece of meat directly off the grill, like some sort of barbecue superhero. For $6, why not?
If you like to do your own oil changes, or aren’t afraid to tinker on the underside of your car, these inexpensive RhinoRamps are the quickest way to elevate your car. Obviously, they won’t help you for tire changes, and they won’t give you a ton of clearance, but for quick, basic maintenance, they should get the job done.
Anker’s brand new PowerCore 10000 is part of your favorite line of USB battery packs, and you can pick one up on Amazon today for just $22, which is $8 less than usual, and an all-time low. Not to be confused with the older PowerCore 10000, this model includes Quick Charge 3.0 (backwards compatible with 2.0), which should feed power into your compatible phone like a firehose.
You also get Anker’s standard 18 month warranty and a nice travel pouch, but the real reason to buy the PowerCore 10000 is its size. If you’ve owned other ~10,000mAh battery packs, you’ll be shocked how small and light this thing is.
These are labeled as the Vitamix 1888-1901, depending on the color, but they’re actually refurbished Vitamix 6300 blenders, which are a little older, but sell for over $500 new. The only difference? You get a five year warranty instead of seven. I’d say that’s worth saving over $200.
RAVPower just came out with their own collection of kevlar-wrapped charging cables to compete with Anker PowerLine, and you can get a 6-pack of the microUSB cables for FREE today when you purchase a Quick Charge 3.0 wall charger. Just add both items to your cart, and use code DT7O9EJE.
Assuming you have (or don’t mind buying) a receiver, and aren’t bothered by the thought of running wires, this $100 speaker set from Monoprice is one of the most tempting home theater audio deals we’ve ever seen.
Whiel it isn’t as turnkey as a VIZIO 5.1 sound bar system, it should sound really good, and will give you much better separation on the front channels. Unfortunately, today’s $100 deal isn’t eligible for Monoprice’s current $20 off $100/$10 off $50 promotions, but it’s tough to complain at this price.
If you aren’t familiar, this VIZIO system offers true 5.1 surround sound by way of a wireless subwoofer and a pair of satellite speakers (which plug into the subwoofer), all without the aid of of a receiver, and without the need to run any cables from your TV to the back of the room. I own a smaller version of the same setup, and absolutely love it.
Update: This deal is available again, but with a backorder.
Iced coffee is a brilliant way to sell people ice for the price of coffee (which is mostly water to begin with). Cold brew on the other hand is a different process that results in less acidity, among other benefits, and you can do it yourself at home with this $15 Takeya. You guys have bought a lot of these at around $19-$20, but today’s deal is the best Amazon’s ever listed.
Your favorite USB car charger just happens to be the smallest one you can buy, and you can grab it on Amazon for $9 today with code QNL6CMJR. We’ve seen it go as low as $6 on a few occasions, but this is the best deal we’ve seen in several months, if it’s been on your wish list.
