Air fryers are still one of our favorite kitchen aids in 2021 to quickly heat up frozen snacks and prepare anything from pizza or whole chicken to an entire cake. This sleek analog 5-quart Insignia might only be able to handle a few cupcakes but can be just as handy reheating leftovers. It is marked down to $54 this weekend. You can also snag the digital version for $70.


Normally $90, this wired optical mouse from Razer comes with nine programmable buttons and customizable LED lighting zones and is now $40 off. The Mamba Elite’s 16,000 DPI offers the ultimate precision with no input lag, and the onboard memory can save your settings in case you need to take it on the road.

Turn your old car into a smart car with Alexa voice control. I bought one of these and it has been one of my favorite third-party accessories. Not only can I control Spotify just by speaking, but I can also get weather and driving directions without ever taking my hands off the wheel. All you need is a smartphone and an auxiliary input and you’re good to go.

If you were lucky enough to snag a new video card during the global chip shortage, then you probably need the storage space to go along with it.

This is one of the lower prices that we’ve seen on these zippy NVMe solid-state drives from a reputable brand in recent months.
