From a pair of true wireless earbuds we liked even better than the Apple AirPods (gasp!) to a lunch cooler that will make for the perfect companion on all those upcoming summer adventures, Reviewed has you covered. Keep reading for the five best Amazon deals we managed to track down today.
1. More than $100 off: Our favorite rice cooker
Your side dish game just got a whole lot more interesting. Our favorite rice cooker of all time, the Zojirushi NS-ZCC10, is on sale for nearly half off its $256 list price, dropping to just $143.09. This handy little machine was a winner in our tests for all its little extras, including inner pan handles (all the better to keep you from burning yourself),“fuzzy logic” technology, which adjusts your cooking temp and time to best suit the grain you’re making (genius!) and a sturdy, durable build. Most importantly, however, it consistently produced the best quality rice of all the cookers we tried, keeping us both happy and full.
2. More than half off: This classic cooler
In the time of quarantine, picnics and cookouts are sounding better than ever, and thanks to this discount on one of our best-tested lunch coolers, you’ll be well-equipped for grubbing on-the-go. This Igloo Playmate 16-ounce cooler, regularly $39.95, is currently marked down to as low as $17.74 in blue and $17.93 in red for a discount of up to 56%. More compact and portable than a full-size cooler, the Igloo will keep your food cold long enough to reach your destination and then some—in testing, it beat out the average lunch cooler time of six hours with its seven-and-a-half hour cooling capability. It was plenty spacious, and we liked its angled lid, which allowed for storage of taller drinks. While it certainly gets the job done, you’ll want to take care with it in the car, as reviewers say it can leak upon tipping.
3. Less than $10: This affordable lint remover
Whether you’re heavily invested in your sweats by now or you’re still getting dolled up in your regular threads, you’re sure to get good use out of this Beautural fabric shaver and lint remover. Nixing lint balls, pills and fuzz from joggers, cardigans, tees and the like, this cordless device, which runs on AA batteries (not included), has three different shaving heights for varying fabrics. It’s got a protective foil to keep your clothing safe from snags or cuts and two different speed settings to boot. But does it get the job done? Its 8,400+ Amazon reviews indicate that it does, with one shopper writing, “It works!!! it is light and convenient and fixed some of my clothes in minutes.” Raved another: “This is very easy to use, and made my two favorite sweaters look brand new.”
Hey, for less than $10 (down from $19.99), who could argue?
4. 7% off: A pair of earbuds that have AirPods beat in the performance department
It’s a lucky day for those seeking out a new pair of earbuds. Not only are Apple’s coveted AirPods Pro marked down to the lowest price we’ve ever seen, you can get a pair we that we deemed even better than Apple’s other AirPods models—the Samsung Galaxy Buds+—for $10 off their usual price tag, reducing them from $149.99 to $139.99. Though it’s not a massive discount, we couldn’t find them from a reputable site for less (Note that can get them at Best Buy for the same price, however, if you so choose). These earbuds have 10 to 11 hours of battery life (that's double the AirPods’ five hours per charge) and an amplifying feature that will make it easier for bicyclists and joggers to hear what’s going on around them. We also just think they sound better than AirPods, thanks to a better, more snug fit and a “fairly robust EQ.”
5. Save 36%: This outdoor game the whole family will love
Fun for the whole family can be found in the form of this Elite Sportz Equipment ring toss game, which drops from $38.97 to $24.99 today on Amazon. With close to 2,400 reviews—more than 1,100 of which are 5-star—this set is undoubtedly a customer favorite. It comes with five rope rings, 10 plastic rings, a sturdy wood board with point-marking pegs and a carrying case, so you can play it anywhere you choose. Shoppers say it’s great for helping to develop hand and eye coordination and that it’s also “nicely designed.”
