I like to think that shopping for deals is better on the weekend. You have more free time to sift through all of your options and the products just seem to be more of what you were planning on buying anyway. Today I found great deals on cooking tools like am Instant Pot and meat thermometer and things you should probably own like a clothes steamer and portable charger. Hey, it’s still nice to treat yourself in the new year.
1. An upgraded Instant Pot
I was recently gifted an Instant Pot for Christmas and I’m not exaggerating when I say that it has changed my life. So far I’ve made creamy soup, risotto in 15 minutes, and quickly steamed sweet potatoes thanks to its pressure cooking setting. It makes dinner a breeze on my busy days and it’s so easy to clean to boot. I genuinely think everyone should own one and right now, you can get an Instant Pot Duo Plus for $33 off. Although it’s not the most popular model, the Plus has a few extra features like an egg cooker and cake maker and is fitted with a large blue LCD screen for easier use

2. Our favorite upright clothing steamer
This year, replace your traditional iron with a clothing steamer. They’re easier to use than irons, there’s less risk of burning your clothes, and they can get wrinkles out of most styles of clothing. Right now, you can get the best upright clothing steamer we’ve ever tested for its lowest price. We loved this model because it has more portability than some of the other steamers we’ve tested and it has a built-in pants creaser and the option for continuous or burst steam.

3. The best meat thermometer we’ve ever tested
As part of their Inventory Reduction Sale, ThermoWorks if offering some amazing deals on their incredible thermometers—including the ThermoPop, the best meat thermometer we’ve ever tested. We loved this thermometer because it only took three seconds to read the temperature and has a display that rotates 360 degrees for easier viewing. Plus, it looks pretty dang cute.

4. Protein powder for your fitness goals
If one of your resolutions is to get #swole, then you might want to get some protein powder for a recovery drink after an intense workout. This one from Optimum Nutrition highly rated and is currently 35% off in a ton of flavors for Saturday only. It has 24g of whey protein and 5.5 grams of naturally occurring BCAAs per serving, making it an ideal drink to help build muscle. Reviewers love that the flavor isn’t too chalky, it blends well, and for this price, you might as well stock up. Personally, I’m eyeing the Chocolate flavor, which is also the cheapest of the bunch.

5. A portable charger so you never run out of battery
When you’re out and about running errands or at a concert, the last thing you want is for your phone to run out of battery. I mean, we use these things for communication, navigation, and to keep up with social media. You should always be prepared with a portable charger—like this one from Anker. It’s the upgraded version of one of our favorite portable chargers and it has quick charging technology to charge your phone three times faster with three ports to charge multiple devices at once.
