Right now he's likely somewhere stress-testing a blender or tinkering with a toaster. Anything with sesame is his all-time favorite food this week.

Best Buy / Crock-Pot

Getting to bust out the multicooker on the regular is probably the best part of winter but I'll tell you that I use mine all year long, especially when short on time or feeling uninspired. If you've been eyeing one of the breakthrough kitchen gadgets, Best Buy currently has a Crock-Pot 6-quart multicooker on sale for under $50, down from its original $100. And speaking of beloved kitchen appliance: the Magic Bullet personal blender -- of TV infomercial fame -- is also down under $20 for today only. Let's take a look at both.

The multicooker is a combination pressure cooker (with safe locking lid), slow cooker, steamer, warmer, rice cooker and more. Compared to the world-famous Instant Pot the Crock-Pot performs just as well but comes in at a lower price point. Made by Crock-Pot, a trusted kitchen brand, this 6-quart multicooker with a steaming rack included gets extremely high marks in over 1,500 verified purchase reviews. Order it now and Best Buy will ship it for free by the weekend.

This small and simple push-top blender has been a fixture on the infomercial circuit and is still selling a few decades later. That's likely because the Bullet is a no-nonsense way to whip up smoothies, shakes or cocktails and head out the door (not with the cocktails, folks).
