Even on sale, Vitamix's Ascent blenders are not cheap, but we’ll take any chance we can get to save $125 on an appliance that is such a workhorse and truly an essential for every meal.

When it comes to Nespresso, you have a lot of choices but can never go wrong with a classic from their VertuoPlus line. The versatile machine can brew espresso and coffee; just insert the pod, and it recognizes what to brew. This Nespresso by Breville bundle is almost $100 off right now and includes Nespresso’s beloved Aeroccino frother, which helps make coffee shop-worthy drinks like cappuccinos and lattes. (Pro tip: Brew two espresso shots over a glass of ice for the best iced Americano ever.) Whatever you make in your Nespresso, it will take a fraction of the time it would in a regular coffee maker or espresso machine.
