The July 4th deals have landed and there are some huge discounts. As a product tester, I've been keeping an eye on all of our favorite tested products to see if any of them have great offers.

I've found that whether you're browsing for the best air fryer, the best vacuum for pet hair, or the best grill for a cookout, you can find some huge savings. In some cases, you can save thousands of dollars.

There's a lot on offer out there in the summer sales, but not all deals are actually worth buying. These are my favorite July 4th deals – all tested or vetted by our experts.

I've trimmed a list of thousands of deals down to a handful of my top picks. Across kitchenware, decor, furniture and floorcare, these are the single best deals you can buy.

Instant Vortex Plus Air Fryer | Was $169.99, now $99.95 at Amazon

Instant Vortex Plus Air Fryer | Was $169.99, now $99.95 at Amazon

I think that by far the best air fryer deal is on this Instant Vortex Plus Air Fryer, voted our best air fryer overall in our buying guide. It's fast, cooks thoroughly, has anti-odor tech and a helpful window so you can monitor your food as it cooks.

Café Affetto Automatic Espresso Machine| Was $679, now $329 at Amazon

Le Creuset Signature Enameled Cast Iron Round Wide Dutch Oven, 6 3/4-Qt | was $430, now $279.95 at Williams Sonoma

Le Creuset Signature Enameled Cast Iron Round Wide Dutch Oven, 6 3/4-Qt | was $430, now $279.95 at Williams Sonoma

We love Le Creuset at Homes & Gardens because they make the best-looking – and best-performing – pots around. However, our biggest criticism has always been the high price. A cast iron Dutch oven for under $300 is a lot more reasonable, and it comes in 17 different colors. We round up more deals in our dedicated Le Creuset deals page.

Geo Glazed Ceramic Candle Holder | Was $32, now $19.95 at Anthropologie

Geo Glazed Ceramic Candle Holder | Was $32, now $19.95 at Anthropologie

The 'unexpected red theory' has been everywhere this year, but we're hearing rumblings from some interior designers that the effect works just as well – if not better – with blue. This little candle holder is perfect; the light blue reminds me of jasperware, but without the expense and formality.

La Jolla Basket | Was $128, now $98 at Serena and Lily

La Jolla Basket | Was $128, now $98 at Serena and Lily

Pretty but ever so functional, this basket is perfect for coastal decor ideas and can be used for storing everything from laundry to LEGO. Serena & Lily can be pretty expensive, so it's worth making the most of the Serena & Lily sale while you can.

Ooni Fyra 12 Wood Pellet Pizza Oven | Was $349, now $259 at Amazon

Ooni Fyra 12 Wood Pellet Pizza Oven | Was $349, now $259 at Amazon

This is my favorite pizza oven. It's not as easy to use as a top-end Ooni Karu, but it's hundreds of dollars cheaper, and the pizza it makes tastes as good.

You can find more details in our Ooni Fyra 12 review.

Dyson V10 | was $349.99, now $239.99 at Walmart

Dyson V10 | was $349.99, now $239.99 at Walmart

After whittling it down, I think this is the best vacuum deal this July 4th. It's rare to see a Dyson below $300, so I'd grab this while you can. The V10 is an excellent vacuum and excels on all floor types – the only real catch is the short runtime when you use its maximum power.

There are more details in our Dyson V10 review.

KitchenAid Artisan Mini Stand Mixer | was $379.99, now $259.99 at Amazon

KitchenAid Artisan Mini Stand Mixer | was $379.99, now $259.99 at Amazon

The Artisan Mini is one of the best ways to get a KitchenAid mixer without spending a small fortune. It's just as good as the full-size Artisan, but the capacity is a little lower. 'A little lower' doesn't mean much, since this can still turn out 60 cookies in a single sitting. We explore more KitchenAid sales in our separate deals page.

Weber Spirit II E-310 Grill | Was $569, now $519 at Weber

Weber Spirit II E-310 Grill | Was $569, now $519 at Weber

My pick for the best grill deals is my favorite gas grill. It's simple, relatively cheap, and makes great food. This isn't the biggest discount around, but it's money worth saving on the best grill you can buy.

You can find out more in our Weber Spirit II E-310 review.

Indio Eucalyptus 5-Piece Loveseat Outdoor Sectional | was $3495, now $1748.99 at Pottery Barn

Indio Eucalyptus 5-Piece Loveseat Outdoor Sectional | was $3495, now $1748.99 at Pottery Barn

One of the best patio furniture deals is on this huge sectional. It's perfect for elevating your outdoor seating. Made from eco-friendly FSC eucalyptus, this sectional has an enormous $1700 saving.

PlushBeds Botanical Bliss Mattress | Was $3,049.00, now $1,699.00 at PlushBeds
Custom comfort

PlushBeds Botanical Bliss Mattress | Was $3,049.00, now $1,699.00 at PlushBeds

This organic mattress is totally customizable, so you can tailor it to your exact sleep needs. I think this is easily the best mattress deal around. Unlike other mattress companies, PlushBeds deals are genuine - you won't see this bed at this low price until the next big sales event.

Mellanni Queen Sheet Set | Was $50.97, now $34.97 at Amazon

Mellanni Queen Sheet Set | Was $50.97, now $34.97 at Amazon

We usually hesitate to recommend cheap sheets but the best affordable bed sheets are the exception. They come in dozens of colors and patterns, are incredibly soft, and unlike other sheets at this price point, feel luxurious. At such a low price, these have to be the best bedding sale for July 4th.

Slumber Cloud Core Mattress Protector | Was $209, now $104.50 at Slumber Cloud

Slumber Cloud Core Mattress Protector | Was $209, now $104.50 at Slumber Cloud

I recommend moving quickly for this cool, soft mattress topper. This is the lowest price we've seen, but only a few sizes are available, so you need to be fast.

FAQs

When are the July 4th sales?

July 4th sales are happening right now. Some retailers will end their sales at 11:59 tonight, but I expect we'll still see deals across the weekend from others.

What's best to buy on July 4th? 

The best things to buy in the July 4th sales are grills. Most people buy a new grill in the runup to July 4th so that they're ready for a cookout. This means that most big box retailers buy lots of stock of grills so they don't run out in the key selling period. Afterwards, they have lots of stock they need to get rid of to make space for new products, which means you can find grills that should be worth thousands of dollars on sale for a lot less.
