Solo Stove Pi Pizza Oven |   Was $624.99

Solo Stove Pi Pizza Oven |  Was $624.99, Now $399.99 at Solo Stove
After our executive editor, Kait tried the Solo Stove Pi pizza oven, it is now officially on my radar, and I can see what makes it one of the best pizza ovens. It heats up super fast, can use wood or gas, and can make two 12-inch pizzas in just two to four minutes! My family loves pizza night and I can't wait to surprise them with wood-fired pizzas to take our family nights to the next level.

KitchenAid Digital Countertop Oven with AirFry | Was $219.99

KitchenAid Digital Countertop Oven with AirFry | Was $219.99, Now $189.99 at Amazon (save $40)

This Black Friday Day I'm going to buy not one but two KitchenAid digital countertop ovens with AirFry – one for home and one for my daughter, who is a student at university. Why? My friend has just bought herself one and is raving about how it's not only so quick to heat up and much more efficient to run than the family's oven but produces fantastic results, too. Our Ecommerce Editor Jaclyn also tested and wrote a glowing review of the KitchenAid digital countertop oven, awarding it a Homes & Gardens Gold badge, plus it's the top buy in our best toaster oven guide. And the price is great. I'm sold!

Vitamix VM0197 Explorian Blender, Professional-Grade, 48 oz. | Was $349.95, Now $289.95 at Amazon

It’s difficult to overstate the quality of Vitamix blenders, which is why I will be adding the Vitamix Explorian to my kitchen arsenal this Black Friday. I expect this smart yet simple appliance will be a lifeline for me; a busy woman on the go. Suitable for making a wide array of dishes, from dips to desserts, this model has a more durable construction than you’d expect from your average blender. What's not to love?

Keurig K-Mini Coffee Maker |  Was $99.99

Keurig K-Mini Coffee Maker | Was $99.99, Now $49.99 at Amazon (save $50)
If you're after a slimline coffee maker that is not only sleek and streamlined but is also functional and efficient, then the Keurig K-Mini coffee maker will be your lifeline. There's no denying the convenience that comes with a single-cup coffee maker, and this Keurig kitchen appliance is one of the best out there. Whether you are after a quick caffeine fix in the morning or an after-dinner pick-me-up, you'll only wish you owned one sooner.

Nespresso Vertuo Next Deluxe Coffee and Espresso Machine with Aeroccino Milk Frother | Was $179

Nespresso Vertuo Next Deluxe Coffee and Espresso Machine with Aeroccino Milk Frother | Was $179, Now $125.30 at Bloomingdale's 

I didn’t even have to think about this one - my pick instantly goes to the Nespresso Vertuo Next Deluxe Coffee and Espresso Machine. There's no end to its accolades: it's one of the best drip coffee machines; the best pod coffee machines and best coffee machines of 2022. Our Ecommerce Writer, Louise gave the Vertuo a five-star review and an H&G gold award – it's easy to see why. The machine is incredibly simple to use and pours delicious barista-quality coffee. The pods are always stocked up thanks to an efficient subscription service, and once you’ve used them, there’s even a service that picks them up from your front door to be recycled. These pods come in a wide range of flavors with limited edition variations (shout out to the festive gingerbread capsules). The included Aeroccino frother is exceptional. It's one of the best milk frothers and is remarkably effective with coconut, oat, and almond milk too. This thing is single-handedly getting me through Black Friday, so while I’d recommend it at any price, saving $100 is an unbelievable value.

Brooklinen Heathered Cashmere Sheets in Queen | Was $309

Brooklinen Heathered Cashmere Sheets in Queen | Was $309, Now $247.20 at Brooklinen

Brooklinen regularly tops our list of the best bed sheets and these Heathered Cashmere Sheets are fabulous. This winter, I'm in pursuit of all things cozy, and as the temperatures have started to drop, I look forward to crawling into bed at night with these luxurious sheets. That's right, ultra-soft cashmere blended with breathable cotton and coupled with Brooklinen's 20% sitewide Black Friday discount, is the perfect combination. 

V15 Detect Absolute | Was

V15 Detect Absolute | Was $799.99, Now $649.99 at Dyson

I can't stop gushing about how much I love the Dyson V15 Detect thanks to its unique dust-hunting laser and it how it helps ensure my home stays clean. This best cordless vac pretty much never goes on sale, so the $150 savings is a welcome discount.

Aura Carver Frame | Was $179

Aura Carver Frame | Was $179, Now $129 at Amazon

This week marks my parent's 30th wedding anniversary, and perhaps their favorite thing – besides time with me – is looking at photos of all of us together. Rather than letting them keep every surface covered in photo frames, we can streamline them with a smart photo frame, and easily add more photos via an easy-to-use app along the way. The 10.1-inch size makes a nice visual impact and knowing that it can handle unlimited photo storage is a nice touch for a family with 30 years of photos to archive and display. 

Instant Vortex Plus 6-Quart Air Fryer Oven |  Was $169.99

Instant Vortex Plus 6-Quart Air Fryer Oven | Was $169.99, Now $99.95 at Amazon
I've tried quite a few of the best air fryers, and well, the Instant Vortex Plus has earned its way to a permanent position on my crowded countertop. The see-through cooking window is a feature usually found on toaster oven designs, but it's so nice to be able to watch my food cook in action, while the LCD displays are easy to use and clearly shows my food's cooking progress. The most under-utilized part, however? The Odor Erase technology neutralizes cooking odors so the memory of my air-fried salmon dinner is just that, a memory, with no unwanted lingering, smells after the meal.

UGG Blaire Throw Blanket |  Was $75

UGG Blaire Throw Blanket | Was $75, Now $59.25 at Nordstrom

It's that time of year when we need to cozy in front of the fire wrapped in a lovely soft throw so I am definitely snapping up this Blaire Throw blanket by UGG in the beautiful new neutral Rosewater colorway, which will also look lovely draped over an armchair. 

De'Longhi EC9155MB La Specialista Arte Espresso Machine |  Was $699.95

De'Longhi EC9155MB La Specialista Arte Espresso Machine | Was $699.95, Now $499.95 at Amazon
I have been holding out for a bean-to-coffee machine for a long time and have decided this is the year to finally reward myself with one. Nothing quite beats the aroma of freshly ground coffee and the De'Longhi EC9155MB La Specialista Arte Espresso, complete with grinder and milk frother, will make me feel like a professional Barista as I prepare my morning cup.

Riedel Extreme Martini Glass, Set of 2|  Was $45

Riedel Extreme Martini Glass, Set of 2| Was $45, Now $35.59 at Amazon
While I am known to enjoy martinis at all times of the year, there is something about enjoying them over the festive season – and of course, on New Year’s Eve. So, this deal on these beautiful Riedel glasses is right on time. These diamond-shaped glasses look like they have come straight from the set of a certain spy movie – and are an asset to any bar cart or glass-fronted kitchen cabinet. I may even order two sets to cover any possible breakages as the party goes on…

Cuisinart Stand Mixer|  Was $299.95

Cuisinart Stand Mixer| Was $299.95, Now $139.97 at Amazon (save $159)
The Cuisinart SM-50BL 5.5 Quart Stand Mixer will be going at the top of my Christmas list this year. I have a small kitchen with limited storage and counter space, so having one appliance that can perform a great range of functions would be the perfect kitchen companion. Not only does it come with a chef’s whisk, but also a dough hook and flat mixing paddle. The generous 5.5-quart mixing bowl also features a pour spout and splash guard to minimize mess. There’s the option to have a pasta extruder, pasta roller and cutters, ice cream maker, meat grinder, and spiralizer! The only thing left to decide is which of the vast array of colors to choose.

Sculpted Rattan Mirror | Was

Sculpted Rattan Mirror | Was $348.00, Now $149.95 at Anthropologie

I've been looking for a rattan mirror for my bedroom for a little while, and this beautiful, sculpted design from Anthropologie is it (and I couldn't believe the discount!) I love how the warming, natural rattan material has been shaped to form a more art-deco, graphic silhouette, creating a unique, elegant union of materials and styles.

Gravity Original Weighted Blanket | Was $249

Gravity Original Weighted Blanket | Was $249 , Now $156.50 with coupon at Amazon

One of the most highly rated weighted blanket brands, I couldn't resist this Black Friday saving on the Gravity weighted blanket. Now we're heading into winter, I wanted to buy a new blanket that could not only keep me warm and cozy but could help me sleep better and make me feel more relaxed. This design comes in a range of pretty colorways, so can coordinate with your space seamlessly – I chose the calming, neutral oat shade – and three weights: 15lb., single-size, 20lb., single-size and 35lb. queen/king blanket.

J.A. Henckels International Modernist 14-Pc. Self-Sharpening Cutlery Set |  Was $334

J.A. Henckels International Modernist 14-Pc. Self-Sharpening Cutlery Set | Was $334, Now $149.99 at Macy's
I love to cook from scratch but I'm also busy and don't want to spend hours in the kitchen, so I get frustrated with blunt knives or equipment that doesn't work properly. These knives are an everyday time-saver. The self-sharpening block uses built-in ceramic honing wheels that sharpen the blade each time you remove or return a knife to the block.

Staub Ceramic Bakeware Set | Was $129.99

Staub Ceramic Bakeware Set | Was $129.99, Now $69.95 at Amazon

We recently updated our kitchen, so it was a great opportunity to clear out any chipped or cracked cookware. This set by Staub is a classic, it's easy to clean, and I love the cherry red color. This hardworking baking and bowl set can take food from the freezer to the oven to the table, all in one dish. And because the dishes are sized to fit inside each other, I love that they can be stacked neatly in kitchen cabinets without taking up too much storage space.

KitchenAid Artisan® Series 5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer|  Was $449.99

KitchenAid Artisan® Series 5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer| Was $449.99, Now $349.99 at KitchenAid
I love to bake. In fact, I must spend most weekends in the kitchen cooking up some baked goods or sweet treats – I just can’t get enough! This Black Friday I am finally going to retire my great grandmother's electric hand whisk in favor of a new KitchenAid stand mixer, more specifically H&G’s top-rated Artisan series-5 mixer which took the top spot in our best stand mixers round up. With $100 off, I simply can’t pass up on this KitchenAid stand mixer deal this time around! It's available in 24 colors, and when you purchase from KitchenAid directly, you can customize it with a free laser engraving on the rim.
