Ninja Air Fryer
Whether your family is big on buffalo wings, crispy Brussels sprouts or mozzarella sticks, they’ll absolutely love an air fryer. It makes all your favorite fried foods, minus the oil (and minus the guilt). It can also roast, reheat and dehydrate, making it the perfect tool for all your family's favorite foods. Plus, it can fit up to four quarts of fries, veggies or meat, so you’ll have enough to feed the whole crew — and still have leftovers.
“Oh my goodness I want to use this for everything,” one shopper shared. “I like to think of this as a personal sized convection oven on steroids. Veggie burgers are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Roasted vegetables, fish sticks, chicken, burgers, fries, fish all with about 30 to 40 percent shorter cook times than the oven and only a three minute preheat time (vs 6 to 10 oven minutes).”
Ninja AG301 Foodi 5-in-1 Indoor Grill
The Ninja AG301 Foodi 5-in-1 Indoor Grill is now $170 (was $230), and it has so many tricks up its sleeve. Grill, roast, air fry, bake and dehydrate to your heart's content with this all-in-one beast!
It's already got a whopping 18,600-plus five-star fans. "Exceeds expectations," raved one. "This thing is better than advertised. It cooks at 500 degrees, which makes steaks like butter. It is truly smokeless. I used avocado oil and wonderful results with New York strip steaks and Brussel sprouts...My wife didn’t even complain about having a new kitchen appliance after eating the steak. She even suggested making counter space for it."
Lodge 6 Quart Enameled Cast Iron
If you still haven’t invested in a cast-iron Dutch oven — now is the time. This No. 1 bestseller from iconic 125-year old brand Lodge is available in a pretty blue, and it’s designed to beautifully bake, broil, roast or braise. You can even use it as a deep fryer. It’s versatile, and it’s built to last you decades.
One shopper shared: “I've had this pot close to a year now and I use it at least three times a week. My husband has remarked several times that we are 'getting our money's worth' with it. It is perfect for roasting chicken, making jambalaya, frying anything, making soups, braising beef, roasting garlic...everything. It goes from stovetop to oven and the lid fits tight and keeps your meats juicy and tender.”

"It easily inserts into any meat, allowing you to get it into the perfect depth for measuring the heat therefore getting an accurate reading. The format on the front helps in choosing rare, well-done etc.. The unit fits comfortably into my hand. I was thrilled that I could also use this grilling steak and chops on my Weber grill."
Crownful Mini Fridge
Nothing hurts more than having to schlep back to the fridge for a refill, only to miss a major play on game day. Why not bring the fridge to you? This mini version can house up to six cans, plus it comes with a removable shelf and a convenient carry handle. You can also use it for snacks or even to store skincare. And it easily packs up for road trips.
