As a mid-range model in the Dyson range, the V12 Detect Slim (8/10, WIRED recommends) has a few features, like an LCD screen that lets you select one of three power levels and see the remaining battery level and filtering and blocking information, among other things. Like all Dyson stick vacuums, it is lightweight and easy to maneuver in cramped homes. Not having to fiddle with cords is a blessing for compact spaces, and being able to convert it from a floor vacuum to a handheld vacuum saves you from having to find room to store two vacuums. It also has a removable battery.
The motor isn’t as powerful as the more expensive Artisan model (300 watts versus 325 watts), but this mixer is powerful enough for all but the thickest and stickiest doughs. The head tilts back so you can add and remove accessories and remove the mixing bowl, which is easier than with the Professional’s non-tilting head. KitchenAid stand mixers have a reputation for being durable. Although it is an initial investment, you can expect it to last for many years.
One of my favorite pieces of cookware, the enameled Dutch oven eliminates the needy tendencies of bare cast iron. You can clean the interior and exterior of this Lodge with all the dish soap you like and never have to wipe it down with vegetable oil to keep it from rusting overnight. The non-stick, non-reactive surface is perfect for slow-cooking stews, oysters, and virtually anything that sits on the stovetop for extended periods of time. I’ve found that the exterior enamel isn’t as durable as much more expensive competitor’s Dutch ovens, but as long as it’s not flaking on the interior, the exterior damage is purely cosmetic.
Dyson is a master at transforming function into beautiful form. When we tested the Pure Hot + Cool, we were struck by how it integrated a fan, electric heater, and air purifier into one. It is capable of filtering 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns, and its built-in air quality monitor displays indoor VOC and particle levels on a bright, easy-to-read screen. read on the front of the device.
Short on caffeine and counter space? The K-Express is only 6.5 inches wide and 12 inches deep, but its removable 36 fluid ounce reservoir holds enough water to brew a round of coffee for you and your friends without having to constantly refill it. Just do a solid to the planet and be sure to use Keurig Reusable Pods to reduce single-use plastic waste.
It’s not often that a newly released TV goes on sale. When we called the QN900C (8/10, WIRED recommends) “among the prettiest you can buy,” we raved about the “brilliantly clear and detailed video,” rich color tones, deep blacks, and smooth motion processing. It’s capable of displaying up to 8K resolution, so your only problem (aside from price) may be finding enough 8K content to display on it.
“Absolutely loaded with detail.” That’s how Reviews Editor Parker Hall described the C3’s picture quality, with vivid, high-contrast images delivered on the 4K display. Incredibly fast response times of 9.2 milliseconds and support for all current generations. The functionality of the console, through its four HDMI sockets, justified our crowning of the C3 the Best TV for gamers.
At its full retail price, the less for the next few days. while it is on sale. It features Sony’s 4K upscaling so HD shows and movies appear as if they were in 4K resolution, and the built-in Google TV lets you stream channels without having to use sticks or TV boxes. external streaming.
Personal Wearable Device Deals
We don’t hide it. The Versa 4 is the best Fitbit available, as we say in our guide to the Best Fitbits. The claimed six-day battery life impressed us, but what really impressed us was that actual testing lived up to that claim, if you don’t leave the screen on all the time . A vibrant 1.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen is quick and easy to use, and old third-party apps have been replaced by Google apps, such as Maps. Built-in Google Assistant joins Amazon’s Alexa, and GPS and Fitbit’s latest PurePulse heart rate sensor round out the rich list of features.
Series 9 (7/10, WIRED recommends) isn’t a big enough leap to warrant replacing your Apple Watch Series 8 (or even your Series 7), but if you’re a first-time purchaser in the Apple Watch ecosystem or replacing your smartwatch even older, you’ll find a host of sleek new features, such as daylight tracking and haptic gesture control. And of course, if you’re an iPhone user, the watch pairs quickly and easily, making setup almost hassle-free.
Do we even need to introduce the oft-imitated Aviators? Classic teardrop lenses have been impressing people for almost a hundred years as they defined the ‘Aviators’ style, so you might as well buy the real deal. Ray Ban Aviators are often on sale, but we haven’t seen them priced this low. Unlike cheaper brands, I have yet to get a tint on a pair of Ray Ban lenses, and the optical quality is perfect.

THE smartest indoor security camera you can get, the Google Nest Cam (Wired) integrates easily and accurately detects people, animals, and vehicles. It has HDR and a high frame rate to get the most out of 1080p images. Unfortunately, you only get three hours of history unless you subscribe to Nest Aware starting at $6 per month, although it also includes familiar face recognition.
Capable of recording sharp images up to 4K with 16GB of local storage on a tethered base (expandable to 16TB), the EufyCam 3 (8/10, WIRED recommends) is a smart security camera system. Built-in solar panels recharge the battery, and onboard AI can detect people, pets, vehicles, and even learn to recognize faces. It’s an expensive system, you have to connect the hub to your router, and the AI doesn’t always get it right. Three- and four-camera kits are also on sale. We stopped recommending Eufy cameras after a few security incidents, but started testing again recently after the company took steps to improve.
These modular smart light bars can be installed on your wall and arranged in any design you want (just be sure to prepare and plan carefully). The Nanoleaf lines (8/10, WIRED recommends) are great for subtle ambient lighting, but they can also sync to music or even mirror your screen to add immersion to gaming. This is the cheapest starter kit we’ve seen.
These clever panels complete our guide to smart lighting panels and are a fun way to add ambient lighting to any room. Each hexagon is an individual light and you can connect them in any pattern you like. The app lets you control the color palette, configure it to react to music, or set schedules. Just make sure to prep them and use a level to place them directly on the wall!
We don’t know if smart displays will be there foreverbut if you want one, Google does some of the best. This 2nd generation Nest Hub (7/10, WIRED recommends) doesn’t have a camera, so you have peace of mind. It’s compact, with a 7-inch screen, making it ideal for your bedside table. It has sleep detection technology to track your sleep quality.
