These are the 5 best Amazon deals of the weekend

— Our editors review and recommend products to help you buy the stuff you need. If you make a purchase by clicking one of our links, we may earn a small share of the revenue. However, our picks and opinions are independent from USA Today’s newsroom and any business incentives.


There are always plenty of deals online, but with so many to choose from, how can you be sure you’re actually getting a good deal. Well, that’s where I (and my company) come in. We test out thousands of products across all sorts of categories to see which ones are actually worth buying and help you avoid investing in a dud. And we do the same thing with deals Beyond sorting through good and crap products, we look deeper at customer reviews, price histories and other details to determine which are the best sales. And today, nearly every one of the best deals sees its product at or very near to its lowest price. Check them out! Maybe you’ll find something you’ve been wanting to buy and can finally get it at a discount.

1. Single-serving cast iron pans for $4 each

If you spend time on Pinterest, watch a lot of cooking shows, or want to mimic your favorite restaurant’s signature skillet dish, there’s never been a better time to get some individually-sized cast iron skillets. Lodge makes the best cast iron cookware out there. It lasts a lifetime, comes preseasoned, and is always very affordable. Right now, you can get these adorable mini skillets for just $4, which is $2 less than usual. They’re only 3.75 inches in diameter, making them ideal for serving appetizers or desserts at your next dinner party.

Get the Lodge 3.75-inch Cast Iron Mini Skillet for $3.96 (Save $2)

2. The best electric kettle is 25% off

This kettle went on sale yesterday (Saturday), and I’m thrilled to see it’s still available for this low price. It usually costs $80-$90 and rarely ever goes on sale for more than a couple hours, so a two-day discount is great, especially if you waffled on it yesterday and still want it now.

This is the best electric kettle we’ve ever tested, but it’s also one of my favorite things. I broke mine a few years ago (I dropped it. No fault of the kettle’s!) and replaced it with a cheaper kettle that just isn’t nearly as good. The Cuisinart kettle sets itself apart for a few reasons: it lets you choose specific temperatures depending on what you’re making, it’s got a lighted window to check your water level, and it beeps when it’s ready, which is way more convenient than it might seem.

3. One of the best meat thermometers is at its lowest price

Unless you’re super skilled and confident in the kitchen, it’s nice to be able to make sure your chicken, turkey, and other meats are cooked to just the right temperature. A simple meat thermometer that takes up next to no space in your drawer is super handy, and Habor makes the best affordable meat thermometer we’ve tested. Right now, you can get it for just $5, the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this typically $8-$10 gadget.

If you do a lot of grilling, or you’re hosting Thanksgiving this year, you can also get one of the best probe thermometers we’ve ever tested for its lowest price yet—just $15 on Amazon. We love that it’s got a magnet so you can mount the digital reader on the oven door or the outside of your grill.

Get the Habor Digital Meat Thermometer for $4.99 (Save $4)

4. A highly rated lawn mower for nearly 50% off

Whether you want to get your lawn ready for winter, be prepared for spring, or live where lawn care is a year ’round job, this Deal of the Day on lawn mowers features one that our readers love. The rest all had unreliable reviews and lower ratings, but Greenworks’ lawn mower is a great choice.

With over 5,800 reviews and 4 out of 5 stars, this cordless mower can keep your lawn looking sharp. It comes with two batteries so you don’t have to worry about recharging in the middle of your chores. Did I mention this sale price matches the lowest price it’s ever sold for? This mower usually costs $400, but it’s only $245 today.

5. These 2-packs of USB-C charging cables are 20% off

If you own a device that charges via USB-C, you know the pain of having too many micro USB and/or Lightning cables, and not enough USB-C cables around your home. Well, today you can change that. Anker’s discounting its 3- and 6-foot cables by 20% with coupon codes (see below). I especially love the braided cables that are tougher and less prone to splitting or coming undone. It really doesn’t hurt that you can get two for under $10 in either length, but note that these cables need to be used with fast-charging adapters to charge, well, faster.

Prices are accurate at the time this article was published, but may change over time.
