This highly coveted countertop accessory is on sale yet again for Black Friday. 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, but better for smaller kitchens and households.
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, but if you’re looking to spend less, this entry-level Vitamix—the Explorian—is on sale for $190 ($100 off).
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.
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.
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 a while.
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 Black Friday.
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.
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.
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.
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 Home Deals
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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 dust bin, 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.
