Historically, Instant Pots have been one of the biggest Amazon sellers on Black Friday, and now’s your chance to beat the shopping rush. These multicookers make meal prep insanely easy, especially around the holidays, since you can do everything from bake a cake to cook a tender brisket in one. If you want one of these top-tested models, you can’t go wrong with the Instant Pot Smart WiFi. It’s one of our favorite multicookers because it was super user-friendly and cooked every meal we threw at it evenly—and quickly. It also comes with a handy app that lets you control its settings from anywhere you want, plus plenty of pre-programmed recipes. Best of all is its current price tag: Usually $149.99, it’s dropped by 40% down to $89.99, which is just $10 shy of its all-time low of $79.99.

Kindles are the most popular e-readers on the market for a reason. They’re lightweight, easy to transport and can store thousands of books for on-the-go reading anywhere, anytime. For the avid bookworms out there who don’t yet own one, Black Friday is always a great be the time to finally bite the bullet. Right now you can get the standard Kindle that was released just last year for only $59.99 with ads, which is $30 off its usual $89.99 price tag. That’s also the lowest price we’ve seen this model available for! Though it’s not our favorite Kindle we’ve tested (that title goes to the Kindle Paperwhite, $129.99), it’s still a great pick for the budget-minded reader. It comes with a 167 pixels-per-inch (PPI) resolution ,a 6-inch display and an added adjustable front light to make reading easier in dark settings.
