Get a high-functioning countertop convection oven and you'll have some explaining to do to your big oven. Namely, why you've stopped using it almost entirely. Right now a very well-rated Cuisinart convection toaster and pizza oven with 1,800 watts of multipurpose cooking power is down to just $60 at both Amazon and Best Buy -- just about as low as we've ever seen this model drop. (We wrote about it earlier this year when it dropped down to $70.) You can also snag a 6-quart Instant Pot with Wi-Fi connectivity for remote monitoring, down to just $100 (was $130), or a totally fun Chefman Belgian waffle maker for $20 (originally $30).
Toast, bake, broil and roast all your favorites from weeknight meals to pizza, or fire up some fast, frozen appetizers for late-night snacks. Amazon and Best Buy will ship the sleek Cuisinart convection oven for free, or you can buy online at Best Buy and take advantage of no-contact curbside pickup and grab it later today.
The multicooker that started a kitchen gadget revolution is now Wi-Fi-enabled so you can start, stop and monitor your meal remotely. The Instant Pot is a pressure cooker, slow cooker, steamer, warmer and more for easy weeknight meals for the whole crew. Best Buy will ship it for free by next Monday.
Going out to brunch may only last as long as the warm weather does, given the state of the pandemic, so you might have to get creative with making Saturday and Sunday mornings special. A Belgian waffle maker with easy nonstick coating and a wraparound channel to avoid batter overflow is a darn good start. This model gets extremely high marks in buyer reviews and it's just $20 right now.
