Top-rated Kindle cookbooks, $2-$7
Learn everything you need to know to get around the kitchen now that Amazon marked down top cookbook eBooks to $2 to $7. Pick up French techniques (and maybe some inside jokes with Julia Child) from Jacque Pépin Heart & Soul In The Kitchen. Teach yourself how to make homemade pasta with The Glorious Pasta Of Italy. Never forget the lamb sauce thanks to Gordon Ramsay’s Home Cooking. The world is your Oysters Rockefeller.
Fremo Evo battery base for Echo Dot, $32 with code OK28IEE7
A lot of you got new Echo Dots as gifts late last year, but if you’ve ever wanted to move it around the house, a new-third party accessory gives it the battery pack it always needed.
The Fremo Evo attaches to the bottom of the Dot via an included magnetic plate, and can power it continuously for six hours away from a charger. And when you’re ready to plug it in, it uses the same power adapter that came with the Dot, meaning you can keep the Evo attached at all times, and take your Dot off the charger without ever losing power and forcing a reboot. Just use promo code OK28IEE7 at checkout to save a few bucks.
We see inexpensive Bluetooth earbud deals just about every day, but over-ear wireless headphones are a little tougher to come by, making this Gold Box deal particularly attractive.
Today only, Bluedio’s 4.2 star-rated wireless over-ears are marked down to $30, or roughly $10 less than usual. Reviewers say they sound great for the price, and their 20-hour battery means you won’t constantly be worried about recharging them.
Vogek aluminum notebook stand, $26 with code LRHX8GKP
There are lots of aluminum laptop stands out there, but this is the only one I’ve seen that can fold completely flat to fit in a backpack, and prop up your laptop at two different angles. Plus, at $26, its also cheaper than most alternatives.
Lansky BladeMedic, $8 for Prime members
No matter how great your kitchen knives are, they all need some tender loving care from time to time. This $8 Lansky BladeMedic includes two V-sharpeners, a fold-out sharpening rod, and a ceramic sharpening edge for serrated knives, all in a handheld package that can fit into any kitchen drawer.
This thing amazingly has a 4.6-star review average from over 3,000 customers, and it has sold out within an hour both times we’ve posted it at this price, so I wouldn’t wait.
2-pack Mpow air-vent mounts, $8 with code WICWSA9I
You guys have undoubtedly seen (and probably purchased) these magnetic smartphone vent mounts by now, but why buy a 2-pack? My advice: Keep one in your car and one in your luggage, because these are awesome for rental cars, and also work as handy phone stands on airplane tray tables if you want to watch a movie.
SodaStream Source, $80
Some people can’t live without their coffee, but for me, it’s fizzy water. While supplies last, you can get a SodaStream Source from Amazon for $80, complete with a small starter carbon dioxide canister and a mail-in rebate for a free full-sized starter canister. That’s the best price Amazon’s listed in over a year, and if you regularly buy soda or carbonated water at the store, it’ll pay for itself.
OxyLED N08 stick-anywhere motion-sensing lights, $12 with code OXYLDN08
MIU folding trunk organizer with bonus cooler, $22 with code MCTRUNK1
What’s that noise your car’s making? It’s all the crap rolling around in your trunk. Luckily, this $22 pop-up organizer will keep everything in its place. It even comes with a bonus cooler and a built-in reflective hazard triangle if you ever need to pull over. Just be sure to use code MCTRUNK1 at checkout to save $6.
If you’re in the market for a solid mid-range gaming headset on a budget, the Logitech G430 is down to $40 today, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen. That’s a bargain considering you get a noise-cancelling boom mic and Dolby 7.1 surround sound.
