    The brushed steel air fryer

Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted great. Love the look of the air fryer and it fits perfectly in my kitchen! Can’t beat the price!" –Aimee

    The vitamix machine

    Promising review: "It's awesome!! This Vitamix makes incredible smoothies, velvety and rich soup and more! I've made sugar free frappuccinos, snow cones, salsa and almond milk. It even had a self-clean function. 10/10 would purchase again!" –Casynne

    Price: $349.95 (originally $449.95)

    3. A KitchenAid Professional 600 Series, 10-speed, six-quart stand mixer so you can easily mix up cookie and bread dough, cakes, and more. The cult-favorite mixer is a kitchen staple that will totally transform how you prep for large baking seshes. Plus, it adds a classic style element to any kitchen.

    The mint-green Kitchen Aid mixer

    Promising review: "After reading the reviews and doing research I went with the professional because I do make a lot of bread and the larger motor handles thicker mixes better. My daughter made bread with dough on the dry side. I'm positive we would have probably burnt the motor of an artisan mixer. This beast powered through like a champ. Today I did creamed honey which requires mixing for 20 minutes. Absolutely in heaven with this mixer and the freedom it affords me." –Cheryl

    Price: $499.99 (available in three colors)

    4. A convertible Novogratz tufted sofa that will come in very handy when you have guests over. The chic-looking silhouette can be fully flattened into a twin-size bed, or partially reclined for extra cozy movie viewing.

    Promising review: "This is hands down the BEST makeup mirror I've ever seen and have owned many. I've researched dozens as well.
