I don’t know about you guys, but I am only about a week into my self-quarantine, and the boredom is becoming too real. Luckily, I can always turn to some good, old-fashioned online shopping to help me stay entertained. After all, if I can’t leave the house, I might as well have some packages to look forward to receiving in the mail, right? To help you shop the best deals on the internet, we’ve rounded up the top five that you can get over on Amazon today, including KitchenAid stand mixers, portable speakers and more that are sure to be excellent new additions to your home as you continue to self-isolate.
1. $100 off: This compact KitchenAid stand mixer
One thing that I’ll have a lot more time from now that I’m stuck at home is baking. And I’ll of course be using my trusty stand mixer to mix batter and knead dough for me. If you’re in the same boat, but don’t want to spend too much on one, the Artisan Mini is less of an investment than its larger counterparts, but still delivers the high-quality performance KitchenAid is known for.
It’s incredibly cute, but don’t let its size deceive you, as it’s also very powerful. While the Mini is about 20 percent smaller overall than the classic Artisan with a 3.5-quart mixing bowl, it has the same 250W motor as the larger models and can still yield 5 dozen cookies. Due to its lightweight, compact size, we think it would make the perfect addition to those apartment dwellers with a smaller kitchen. Today you can save $100 and snag it for just $199 in the black matte, contour silver, and empire read colors.
2. $30 discount: The upgraded version of our favorite portable speaker
Now that we’re stuck indoors, many of us are looking for a way to carry our tunes around the house, whether it’s in the shower, on the countertop while you’re cooking dinner, or at your desk while you work remotely. To do so, you’ll want a portable Bluetooth speaker that’s durable, easy to carry, and has powerful sound, all of which the JBL Flip 5 offers.
It’s the upgraded version of the JBL Flip 4, our favorite portable speaker, which we loved for its waterproof exterior, excellent battery life, and incredible audio. The Flip 5 however comes with a larger driver size, battery life, and power output, and is also compatible with USB-C quick charge. While it normally retails for $120, right now you can snatch it up for just under $100.
3. Save $10: This highly-rated, Belgian-style waffle maker
If you have a Leslie Knope-esque affinity for waffles, then a waffle maker is a must-have in your kitchen. They’re amazing for churning out large breakfasts for hungry family in little time, but you also want one that’s not too bulky so it’s easy to store when you’re not using it.
Typically retailing around $45, this Dash Belgian Waffle Maker is a great option if you don’t want to shell out a fortune. It’s a larger version of the Dash Mini waffle maker, which we loved in our testing. Reviewers praise this model for its thoughtful design featuring an indicator light, easy-to-lift handle, and overflow channel that will prevent any messy batter from spilling over. Not to mention, the Belgian waffles consistently came out great, shoppers said. While it’s already pretty affordable at its full $45 retail price, today you can the silver color for just over $35.
4. 15% off: These food storage containers with a near-perfect rating
Now that we have plenty of time in the kitchen to make big pots of soups, stews, desserts and the like, we’re going to need some sturdy containers that will last to store our leftovers. While these ones from Rubbermaid weren’t our absolute favorite food storage containers, our tester was still impressed by how stackable they were and found they were easy to keep organized in the pantry. Right now, the 9.6-cup, 2 piece set is a few dollars cheaper, and won’t cost you more than $20.
5. Save an extra $2: This handy knife and cutlery bristle brush
Cleaning knives is always a pain, especially when their sharp edges end up destroying your sponges. Luckily, this little gadget was designed for exactly that task in mind. Reviewers praise its efficient, well-constructed design, which can help you avoid damaging your dishwashing tools or even worse, cutting yourself. While it’s already on sale, thanks to an on-page coupon, you can save an additional $1.40 on this handy tool.
