Everyone needs a solid blender in their kitchen. This model boasts five food settings (smoothie, salsa, milkshake, frozen drink, and juice) and ActiveSense technology that senses the mixture in the pitcher and automatically adapts the power to control blade speed. There's also something we've never seen before: an "add liquid" function that instructs you when to add more liquid to achieve a perfect consistency.
One satisfied customer wrote: "This was on a flash sale and I’m so glad we bought this! We make so many more smoothies now because they are so easy to make with this blender! The convenience of the two sizes of pitchers and easily unscrewed bottom makes everything so easy to use and clean."
Can't get the day started without a cup of the good stuff? Snag this high-end coffee maker for nearly 50 percent off. You can customize your brew based on taste level and a warming plate with three heat settings keeps liquids at the right temperature for up to four hours. For those always on the go, program your options ahead of time and brew when ready!
"Best maker I have ever had! I love how easy it is to use," a five-star fan gushed. "I have trouble programming things today. And this one a child could do it. The flavor that comes out is heavenly. I used to get coffee from this big chain we know. Now I buy the grounds and make it at home. The way you choose the warmer and it doesn’t shut off till after 4hours. I like to sit and enjoy coffee in the morning."
If espresso is more your speed, pick up this machine while it's on sale. There are pre-programmed settings for single and double shots, a cup warming tray and hot water option for espresso-ready mugs. Calphalon is also including tools to ensure you are accurately cleaning the device after each use.
"The perfect size espresso machine! Quick, pulls shots without clogging and the steam wand works super well," a satisfied customer said. "I recommend putting a splash of milk in the cup before the espresso drips into it so it doesn’t get too bitter. Keeping the wand at the surface of the milk and angling the milk cup is how you make foam. Glad I opted for this machine instead of the smaller ones I’ve seen online!"
This cookware set exudes elegance and class. The massive 11-piece haul includes a 10" fry pan, 12" fry pan with cover, 1.5-qt. sauce with cover, 2.5 quart. sauce pan with cover, 3 quart. sauté pan with cover, and a 8 quart. stockpot with cover. Suitable for gas, electric, induction, and glass top stovetops, feel like an executive chef every time you try a new recipe. A 10-piece and smaller 8-piece pots and pans set are also on sale.
"Great set. Totally changes the cooking experience," a happy cooker wrote. "I did a ton of research before deciding. I have used the non-stick Calphalon for years but wanted to upgrade. I love how they cook. Sometimes I spray with non stick spray but if something sticks I let it soak a bit and it cleans up in a breeze."
Calphalon Performance Air Fry Convection Oven
Air fryers have become the must-have kitchen appliance as of late, and this one has all the bells and whistles. Enjoy 11 precision cooking functions like defrost, reheat, air fry and broil. There's also a built-in light to monitor cooking progress and a beautiful LCD screen that puts every feature literally at your fingertips.
"The James Bond of toaster ovens," one satisfied customer wrote. "This thing looks amazing and does everything right. Its size makes it easier to accommodate bigger dishes that can be a hassle in a regular oven and it's extremely user-friendly. Still blown away by this purchase. It goes above and beyond and has truly made all meals much easier."
