Ninja 4 Qt. Air Fryer

“My mom doesn’t love kitchen gadgets, but she’s all about trying to eat healthier (especially when it comes to feeding my dad). I got her this little guy for Hanukkah (shhh, don’t tell her!), and I think it’ll go over well. I’m honestly surprised I haven’t thought to get her one before now, but this price just couldn’t be beat and sparked the idea!” — Lisa Freedman, Lifestyle Director

Buy: Ninja 4 Qt. Air Fryer, $100 (normally $175)

Method Dish Soap

“Kitchn editors pretty much all agree that Method is our favorite dish soap. I live in NYC where household items like this are always marked up, so when I see a sale, I stock up. I love the lemon scent because it doesn’t make my dishes smell like candles.” — Lauren Masur, Staff Writer

Buy: Method Dish Soap, $5 (normally $6)

My favorite Black Friday purchase this year was three new candles from Yankee Candle. My favorite is one called Mountain Lodge. Just the name of it makes me feel cozy! — Grace Elkus, Deputy Food Director
