All-Clad Stainless Steel Cookware
Save 52%: What’s the difference between quality stainless steel cookware and cheap stainless steel cookware? Easy: the former has even heating, balanced weight and increased durability. The downside, of course, is cost.
Today at Macy’s, the most-respected stainless steel cookware in the world is selling discounted pots and pans — in bulk. All-Clad’s seven-piece collection of stainless is marked down from $630 to $300. The set includes a sauté pan, fry pan, stock pot and a saucepan. This is as cheap as it gets. — Will Price
Traeger Wood Pellet Grill
Save 25%: Traeger, the company that invented the wood pellet grill, has made better grills than its Texas Elite model. Earlier this year it unveiled a new series of grill-smokers that connect to Wi-Fi, pre-heat quickly and are fully controllable through smartphones. The past-generation Texas Elite doesn’t do these things, but it still does everything you need it to, and it’s 25 percent off right now.
For those unfamiliar with wood pellet grilling, they work by way of an auger pushing tiny hardwood pellets into flames based on temperature readings from an internal computer. You set the temperature you want to cook at — about 150 to 400 in this case — and it does the fire tending for you. This means you have a grill that is fired by a natural, flavor-imparting fuel that you don’t need to stand next to all day. It’s essentially a hands-off smoker mixed with a capable wood grill.
Today on Amazon, it’s $225 off its regular price, or the lowest price it’s ever been. — Will Price

Save $50:The Fitbit Ionic is one of the best trackers for everyday athletes and weekend warriors, and right now it’s $50 off. Built-in GPS means you can easily log miles run, walked and hiked; the multi-sport modes never miss a rep and smartphone notifications keep you from missing that important email from your boss, or partner. We love that it works for pool laps and gives you a readout of sleep insights including your light, deep and REM sleep minutes.
