First Alert HOME1 Fire Extinguisher (2-Pack)

$33 $45
Free shipping for Prime members

Buy now from Woot

A fire extinguisher is a must-have safety feature in any home. If you’re looking for a smaller, supplemental extinguisher for your space, we recommend the First Alert HOME1. Perfect for a kitchen or egress pass, the HOME1 won’t take up as much space as our top pick but can still handle a small blaze when used properly. Shipping is free from Woot for Amazon Prime members with an additional $3 off (dropping the price down to $30), but otherwise it’s an $6 for shipping.

Infiniti Pro by Conair 1875-Watt Salon Performance AC Motor Styling Tool Hair Dryer

$21 $25

Buy now from Amazon

Just about any hair dryer will get the job done, but there are a few small features that can really separate the diamonds from the duds, like weight and price. Though the Infiniti Pro by Conair is much heavier than our top pick (and has harder-to-remove attachments), it still packs all the same power at a fraction of the cost. If you don’t mind getting a bit of an arm workout while you style your hair, the Pro is an affordable solution that will blow away the competition. This deal price is available in orange and burgundy.

Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro 12.9‑inch

$250 $330

Buy now from Amazon

Turn your iPad into a laptop with a handy keyboard case. The Apple’s Magic Keyboard is much pricier and heavier than the competition, but our upgrade pick offers fantastic, backlit keys and a great trackpad (something that most other cases lack). It also has an improved design that allows you to position the iPad Pro freely anywhere between 90 to 125 degree angles.

$47 $70
Use promo code WC21594

Buy now from Monoprice

You don’t have to spend a lot to get the latest in kitchen gear—our budget sous vide machine pick is the perfect example. Though it’s louder and doesn’t have all the advanced features of the competition (such as wireless connectivity), the Monoprice Strata Home Sous Vide Precision Cooker 800W is still an efficient, significantly more affordable machine. Temperature-accurate with an adjustable clip, the Strata is the perfect entry-level option for those new to sous vide cooking.
