There are a ton of online retailers to give your attention to on Cyber Monday, and while you can spend some serious time scouring each site for the best deals, if you're supposed to be working after taking time off for Thanksgiving, you should probably keep your shopping "trips" brief.
We suggest heading to just one place: Amazon. Here are the five best sales happening on the site. Your boss will thank you (and us, we're assuming).
1. 6-Quart DUO Plus Instant Pot, $75
We've written extensively about our love of the Instant Pot, a multi-functional miracle machine that will do nearly everything except fold your laundry. Today, it's marked down by 38 percent, allowing you to snatch it up for just under $75 — a total steal.
If you've been thinking about upgrading your well-worn coffee maker, or finally buying your first one in an effort to save money by making your morning cup at home, this FlexBrew Coffee Maker is a good bet — especially today, when you'll save nearly $30. This fully programmable machine is the definition of flexible, allowing you to make a whole pot (12 cups) or a single cup, utilize K-Cups or regular grounds. Bonus: It comes with a bag of delicious Gevalia coffee to get you brewing ASAP.
3. Vitamix 5200 Blender, $300
There's a reason why Vitamix blenders are so expensive: They're the best out there. All the problems you have with regular blenders aren't an issue with this guy, and it'll do way more than just make your morning smoothie (like make soups!). Even better? Usually priced at $550, this blender is on sale today for around 46 percent off.
All-Clad is known for its high-quality, long-lasting cookware, which is why it tends to be really expensive (you pay for quality, right)? Well, today's the day to finally bite the bullet because select All-Clad cookware is on sale for up to 60 percent off. There are a ton of different sets (this one, this one, and this one) if you're looking to upgrade all of your cookware, and individual skillets, smaller sets, and even a Dutch oven if you just need to replace a few pieces.
Sure, sous vide sounds like something only professionally trained chefs do to wow the judges on Food Network cooking competitions, but you can actually do it at home with one of these low-profile machines from ChefSteps, each a great Cyber Monday deal. The version with stainless steel is on sale for 15 percent off ($169) or you can get thenon-stainless steel option for bit less at 17 percent off ($149).
