Are you in the market for a multi-cooker? Well, now you can score a deal on an Instant Pot, the do-everything countertop appliance that jump-started the multi-cooker craze. The DUO 60 is the least expensive with seven cooking modes, while the DUO Plus 60 jumps up to nine modes. The Instant Pot Smart Wifi hooks into a mobile app that includes more than 1,000 pre-grammed recipies.
Nespresso and Keurig are direct competitors in the single-serving coffee maker game, and now you can have your pick. The VertuoPlus makes quite good espresso, but the Keurig makes much better coffee.

It’s difficult finding deals for backyard grills during summer time, but these two models from Weber and US Stove are both highly rated—though the discounts aren’t amazing. The Weber uses propane, while the US Stove uses wood pellets.
