The year has flown by, and Black Friday is already around the corner.

This means even earlier sale prices than ever before! We’ve pulled together some of our favorites for you here, as well as a few products to keep an eye on for sales in the future. We found deals on everything including auto accessories, kitchenware, TVs, tools and more. Keep in mind, many of these sales are subject to change, but we’ll be sure to keep this page updated as best we can throughout the season. Happy hunting! 

Instant Pot Duo Plus, 6 Quart, 9-in-1 – $99.99 (17% off)

Key Features

  • This 9-in-1 cooker acts as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, sauté pan, rice cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, food warmer, sous vide and sterilizer
  • Features 15 one-touch cooking presets 
  • East-to-read display includes a cooking progress bar
  • The inner pot is constructed from food-grade stainless steel

Instant Pots have been somewhat usurped by air fryers as the must-have kitchen accessory of the decade (don’t worry, we have an air fryer deal for you below as well), but if you ask us, they’re still pretty indispensable. There’s a reason why your one friend who owns one won’t shut up about it: it’s a great cooking tool! If you’re a big rice fan or slow-cooking fan and you still don’t have an Instant Pot, we recommend giving this deal a good, hard look.

Key Features

  • Features 12 cooking modes from chicken to french fries to bacon

It’s impossible to escape the hype around air fryers nowadays, but the hype exists for good reason, these things are great. Sure they can cook all kinds of things like chicken, veggies, bacon and more, but for our money, it’s worth the price of admission just for its french fry reheating ability. Never put your leftover fries in the microwave again. You deserve better than that.
