Get the Apple AirPods Pro for $219 (Save $30): As the best true wireless earbuds we've ever tested, these silicone-tipped buds are ultra-comfy, offer active noise cancelation and are easy to set up. With a battery life of 4.5 to 5 hours, they don't hold a charge as long as some of the competition, but they come with a wireless charging case for up to 24 hours of total listening time.

>Get the Apple Watch Series 3 for $169 (Save $30):

While the Watch Series 3 may not be the latest-and-greatest model in the Apple Watch line-up (that would be the Series 5, $299, with the Series 6dropping

tomorrow, September 18), we still think it's an excellent smartwatch, and right now, you can get it for $169, which is down $30 from its usual $199. The difference? It's missing the larger, always-on display, has an older processor and does away with ECG functionality.

>Get the Rubbermaid Brilliance 10-Piece Food Storage Set for $41.81 (Save $18.18)

: This 4.9-star rated set, which has more than 3,500 positive reviews, offers everything you need to store pantry essentials, such as pasta, rice and more. (You can also get a similar set at Target for $19.99.) This set is similar to the 14-piece alternative ($53) that we  deemed one of the best food storage container collections around, because they're so easy to stack andhelped keep contents fresh and tasty.

>Get the Lodge Pre-Seasoned 10.25-Inch Cast-Iron Skillet for $14.88 (Save $11.80)

: This cast-iron skillet has nearly 58,000 positive reviews on Amazon and a 4.6-star rating. A slightly smaller version of the best value cast-iron pan we've ever used, the 12-inch pre-seasoned Lodge (also on sale for $19.92) churned out perfectly delectable cornbread and seared steak with ease. We'd expect the 10.25 to perform similarly, and shoppers say this smaller pan is a great size for roasting or baking. 

Get the Technivorm Moccamaster KB-741 for $299 (Save $20): This 40-ounce brewer is the best drip coffee maker we've ever tried. With its stylish, mid-century design, it features an automatic heating element that's able to maintain temperatures between 175 and 185 degrees Fahrenheit, so hot liquids don't burn. It doesn't have a programmable timer, but it's a status item and a must-have for "serious" java drinkers.  

>Get the Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 Pressure Cooker for $79 (Save $20.95): 

As one of our favorite pressure cookers, this seven-in-one machine was aces for making soup and risotto (thought it did flub a bit on the chili in testing). Right now, it's also $21 off its usual price, falling from $99.95 to $79.

>Get the Cuisinart WAF-F20 Double Belgian Waffle Maker for $99.95 (Save $85.05)

: As one of the best waffle makers we've ever tested, this 4.7-star rated appliance can help make breakfast more of a treat for you and your loved ones. Nearly 4,200 shoppers on Amazon have given it a thumbs up, and our testers enjoyed that it's user-friendly, can crank out two waffles at a time and made the thickest, fluffiest waffles of any device we used. We liked it so much, we couldn't find a single flaw with it.

Get the KitchenIQ Edge Grip for $4.69 (Save $2.83): This is one of our favorite knife sharpeners because it's sleek and small at just 0.5 ounces, so it won't take up too much of your counter space. It features both coarse and fine slots at the top, too, which will help refine the edge of your blade.

>Get the Bissell MYAir Purifier at Amazon for $69.99 (Save $20)

: As wildfires continue to spread across the West coast, more and more shoppers are searching for powerful air purifiers to help get rid of unwanted smoke particles and pollutants they may be breathing in at home. This 4.6-star rated option has more than 800 positive reviews on Amazon and is designed to get rid of dust, smoke, dander and pollen in areas up to 100 square-feet. Amazon shoppers say it helps remove unwanted odors, too.

Get the eufy RoboVac 11S for $189.99 (Save $30): As our favorite affordable robot vacuum, this 4.4-star rated gem is a great bargain even when it isn't on sale, but it's a sweeter pick-up when you can save on it. During testing, we were wowed by the way the 11S made short work of messes, reportedly picking up around 11.6 grams of dirt per run, which our lab techs noted at the time was more than what most iRobot models can manage. With more than 26,000 positive reviews on Amazon, it's a must-own. Click the coupon beneath the price to drop it from $219.99 to $189.99.

Get the Higen 100-Foot Expandable Garden Hose Set for $34.99 (Save $15): This flexible hose is made with triple-layer latex and is a must-have for anyone who does a lot of yard work. It also has a 4.3-star rating and more than 1,800 terrific reviews on Amazon, with shoppers raving about its lightweight feel and maneuverability that make it easy to use. 

Get the Armor All AA255 2.5-Gallon Wet/Dry Vac for $54.50 (Save $17.49): We haven't yet tested this shop vac but it's got a 4.4-star rating from close to 10,000 Amazon shoppers, who say it's lightweight, easy to transport and has great suction capabilities. Though it's currently up for grabs here for $55.70, you can also pick it up at Walmart right now, where it's $32.97.
