Walmart’s Big Save event
Walmart kicked off its Big Save online sales event, which will run through Oct. 15, earlier this week. The megaretailer is doling out Black Friday-like savings on thousands of items including cookware, electronics, toys, beauty items and more. Free two-day shipping is also available on orders over $35, while some items are eligible for free next-day shipping or in-store pickup (or both).

The Instant Pot already does more than most kitchen appliances — pressure cook, slow cook, sear, steam, warm. Add an air fryer attachment and it may never leave the counter. The 8-quart Duo with crisping lid is down $51 to just $99 today at Walmart.
Whether it’s a single cup of joe you’re after or a full pot, this Keurig K-Duo offers the best of both worlds for an impossibly easy coffee routine in the morning.
A nice 6-quart slow cooker with sear, steam, roast, bake and warm functions is also down under $50. Note, this one doesn’t pressure cook like other Instant Pots but it’s perfect for lazy, Sunday slow-cooked stews and sauces.
Since we’re all watching more movies at home, why not spring for this charming popcorn maker to give the living room an arthouse cinema feel?
Target’s Deal Days event
Target has also launched a major sale, dubbed Deal Days, that’s aligning with Prime Day (Oct. 13 to 14). Target previously teased that the online event will feature deals on “hundreds of thousands of items across its electronics, toys, beauty and home departments and will be offering contactless drive-up and order pickup on many items.”
The best kitchen deals from Target’s Deal Days
For my money (and space), a multipurpose air fryer oven like this Oster is the pick. It’s priced a little higher than some others but will serve as your air fryer, toaster and small convection oven. If you’re anything like me, you’ll use it almost every day.
Nab the easiest blender ever for shakes and smoothies at this $50 sale price. It comes with 18- and 24-ounce cups with tight-locking lids to take your morning beverage or post-workout shake out the door.
Get the crispy “fried” foods of your snacking dreams with little or no oil and far fewer calories. There’s a good reason these have been the hot ticket kitchen item of the last few shopping seasons.
A very nice price on this true kitchen workhorse. It’s cookie and cake season and no single appliance makes life easier for a baker. Not to mention the handy attachments that turn this guy into a pasta maker, meat grinder, veggie spiralizer and more.
