  • 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 $65 (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.

  • ecobee3 Thermostat with Three Sensors for $203 (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.

  • PicoBrew Model C Beer Brewing Appliance for $280 (was $400). 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.

Health and 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). 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 $199 (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.

  • 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.

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.
