    Kitchen Tools

    True Wooden Finish Cocktail Shaker

    The True Wooden Finish all-in-one shaker, also known as a cobbler shaker, that could be good for beginners. It’s stainless steel, with a faux wood finish that gives it a unique aesthetic and requires it to be hand-washed only. The testers reported that this shaker felt flimsier than other models they tried, but the price and look for this model may make it worthwhile.

    Why it’s a good deal: This is a modest discount, but on an already lower-priced item it makes enough of a difference to be worth a look. Plus it’s only $2 more than the lowest price we’ve seen.

    Viski Heavyweight Cocktail Shaker

    This sophisticated-looking cobbler shaker from Viski is nicely weighted, with thick stainless steel craftsmanship. It holds 17 ounces and has a strong seal that could handle both a regular and a dry shake without leakage. At a little over 1 pound, it’s heavier than the other shakers, but the grip is nice and feels very ergonomic. 

    Why it’s a good deal: This is just a couple dollars more than the best price we’ve seen.

    Chef’s Choice Model 4643 AngleSelect Professional Manual Knife Sharpener

    The Chef’s Choice 4643 knife sharpener looks like the analog version of the brand’s electric sharpener, but it works a bit differently. It has two basic sharpening settings, one for sharpening knives to 15 degrees and another for sharpening knives to 20. A third stage polishes the edge of any knife, regardless of which sharpening angle you choose. Like the brand’s electric sharpener, the 4643 feels well designed, with grooves that hold your knife at the perfect angle as you slowly draw it through. 

    Why it’s a good deal: This is the usual sale price for this sharpener, and it hasn’t been lower than this is nearly a year.

    Label Makers

    Phomemo D30 Label Maker

    The Phomemo D30 Label Maker was the choice label maker in our evaluations. Using an app, you can produce labels in under 10 seconds or connect it to your printer for more elaborate jobs. The Phomemo offers extensive font options and a preview of what they will look like as well. The lithium battery comes charged and ready to print, and you can even print pictures, bar codes, and date and time stamps. The easy-tear labels can be separated with just one hand, and the device is smart enough to calibrate the paper roll to the proper position if you don’t align it perfectly.

    Why it’s a good deal: With the on-page coupon, the sale price is a few dollars less than we’ve seen in the last year.

    Phomemo M110 BT Label Maker

    The Phomemo M110 is the bigger, bulkier version of the Phomemo D30, which we also tested and liked. The M110 offers a bit more flexibility with the size of the label you’re creating. It uses the same app as well, and has a wide variety of fonts, styles, and images, with quick creation and easy label cutting. Its size, compared with the smaller Phomemo, makes it a bit less portable, and its alignment isn’t as precise when it comes to cutting the label exactly on the cut line compared with the other label printers. But it’s still a solid option for a durable label printer. 

    Why it’s a good deal: This is the typical sale price for this label maker.

    Cricut Joy Label Maker

    For serious crafters, the Cricut Joy label maker is a must. Highly regarded as a go-to splurge item in the crafting and scrapbooking world, the Cricut Joy is large and almost 4 pounds. It can print on vinyl and can be used for extensive crafting and labeling beyond the basic label printers—which means you can also use it for lunchboxes, T-shirts, hats, and so much more. The device’s labels are meant to be extra durable; they’re full vinyl adhesives, which are likely to last a bit longer than other label makers.

    Why it’s a good deal: Cricut devices don’t go on sale often, but we have seen this model sell for as little as $99 during major sales, so it might be worth waiting for it to drop again.

    Citrus Squeezers

    Zulay 2-in-1 Lemon Lime Squeezer

    The Zulay 2-in-1 citrus squeezer is meant to serve as a versatile device that can work with lemons and limes. In our at-home evaluations of the best citrus squeezers, we found that this model was somewhat easy to use, though it still required a bit of effort and wasn’t as mess-free as other devices. That said, the double flaps make this one conducive to squeezing citrus of varying sizes. 

    Why it’s a good deal: Amazon has the best price we’ve seen for this squeezer, thanks to an on-page coupon.

    Zulay Kitchen Lemon Squeezer Stainless Steel

    In evaluating the best manual citrus squeezers, this stainless steel Zulay Kitchen lemon squeezer proved to be easier to use with more ripe lemons, and little pulp made it into the cup. Its sleek composition makes it ideal for storing in compact drawers, and it’s dishwasher-safe. 

    Why it’s a good deal: We’ve seen many of the different colors on sale for under $20 in the past, so it’s not the best deal that’s ever been available. But it is the lowest price in over a month.

    Vacuum Sealers

    Earning top marks for dry-food sealing and speed, the Geryon E2900-MS is a relatively quiet vacuum sealer. While it lacks storage for plastic rolls, it comes with them for making custom-sized bags. The device’s control buttons are sensitive to the touch, and it features an accessory port and hose for vacuum-sealing containers with special lids. 

    Why it’s a good deal: We haven’t seen this vacuum sealer fall below $40 until now.

    This vacuum sealer from Black+Decker is a great option. It gets high scores in CR’s lab tests for speed and dry-food sealing, and its performance for wet-food sealing (e.g., marinated foods) is nearly as strong. It does get lower-than-average scores for noise, but that’s fairly common for this sort of kitchen tool.

    Why it’s a good deal: This model originally cost $130 and typically retails for closer to $100, and this discount makes it even more appealing.

    Storage and Organization

    mDesign Plastic Portable Shower Caddy

    Bring the order back to your under-sink cabinet. According to Merrilee Reynolds, founder of Mode, a professional decluttering and home organization service, shower caddies can be practical for under-sink cabinet storage. The expert recommends using one to store cleaning supplies, for easier accessibility. Caddies are also a great way to keep chemical-based products separate from personal items, especially when used in the bathroom. 

    Why it’s a good deal: This is the same low price we saw for Black Friday.

    Chef’s Path Cereal Containers Storage Set

    When it comes to pantry staples bought in larger quantities—such as cereal, oats, and rice—stackable canisters or basic jars can help maximize shelf space. This Chef’s Path storage set comes with four 4-liter airtight containers that are primed to keep your dry goods neatly in place and easily accessible. 

    Why it’s a good deal: This is $1 less than the previous best price we’ve seen for this set.
