Amazon Canada: Crock-Pot 4-Quart Stainless Steel Slow Cooker Only $18

Posted by on September 2, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Crock Pot 4 Quart Stainless Steel Slow Cooker Only $18

I’m already stressing about dinners and lunches and its only the first day back to school! I work from home and find it hard to give myself a break to go and cook a healthy lunch. I need to get a list of recipes together that are either quick to make or I can make ahead. The same goes for dinner time, as my kids have lots of extracurricular activities booked and I need them to eat right after school. A slow cooker is seriously a life and time saver in these situations. Amazon has an awesome deal on right now for the Crock-Pot 4-quart stainless steel oval slow cooker, now only $17.98 with a regular price of $24.99.

I actually have this exact slow cooker, but I have no idea where I got it and what I paid because I’ve had it for years. It is a good size, cooks the food perfectly and I really have absolutely no complaints. I’ve also used it to make a hot chocolate bar at home last Christmas. I just made a large batch and everyone scooped from it. This year I’m going to try that with apple cider. Slow cookers are seriously very versatile.

Four quarts is equal to 3.7L, which says will feed 4-5 people and I’m going to assume children are only half a person, so it is probably more than enough for a family of five like mine. It has stick-resistant coating so it is very easy to get clean and I can also attest to this. You know when you cook those hearty dishes that inevitably stick to the sides in a crusty, hard mess? Well, those come off with just a wipe of the bowl. It can even go in the dishwasher!

There are a few reviews on Amazon’s site, giving it a 4 out of 5 star rating, including this one:

If you want a basic slow cooker for an affordable price, this is the one. But emphasis on the word “basic”. This is not my first Crock-Pot, and I can see how the quality has slipped over the years. That said, however, it does the job. I know that the high setting is going to cook quickly, the low setting will probably be the ideal setting for actual slow cooking, and the hold warm setting does just that.

Amazon offers free shipping on orders over $25, so you might want to look around for a low-cost item to add to your order and get your shipping covered.

Amazon Canada: Breville Crispy Crust Pizza Maker Only $140

Posted by on August 16, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Amazon Canada: Breville Crispy Crust Pizza Maker Only $140

Amazon has a fantastic deal on right now if you love your pizza. Get the Breville Crispy Crust pizza maker, now on for $139.99 with a regular price of $199.99.

My family loves their pizza. Even my pickiest son will eat pizza, although it can only be cheese. My husband is a pizza aficionado, although he does like to keep it simple. I love pizza; seriously, what’s not to love? However, I love gourmet and unusual ingredients. I am the one who adores anchovies and big chunks of garlic and crushed tomatoes and whatever you can throw on a pizza. This crispy crust pizza maker would make a fantastic gift for the family.

What it does

When you go to a restaurant that has brick oven baked pizza, you definitely see the difference from your regular pizza joint’s pizza. The crust is perfect and that really, truly makes a pizza. Well, Breville says you can get the same effect using this machine and you can do it at home. It doesn’t matter if your crust is thick, thin, gluten-free or made of cauliflower (well I’m not sure about that one), your pizza will bake quickly and crispily. There is even a viewing window, so your kids can fawn over how yummy the pizza is starting to look.

Who wants it

Like I said, you could get this as a Christmas gift for the family and store it in your closet. You’d be thankful four months from now when you’ve got most of your shopping done and don’t have to pay the full price. I think it would also make a great gift for a kid heading off to school, as it is just a plug-in appliance. If they are heading off to residence, they could share it with their friends in the common area and instantly make a boatload of friends, simply because they make the best pizza in the dorm.

Price comparisons

Lots of places sell the Breville Crispy Crust pizza maker like Sears, who sells it for $199.99, Williams Sonoma sells it for $222.59 and Shop.ca has it on sale for $159.99, but Amazon beats them all.

Reviews

All of the reviews on Amazon are positive and for your money spent on this, that’s what you want to hear!

Had my first pizza today from this oven and it was delicious. After an initial heating period it cranks out a pizza every 4 minutes and it does an incredible job on thin crust, home made pizza. I have used a turntable pizza oven before and was happy with the results but could not get the temperature to stay longer on high but this oven is far better as it hits 600 degrees.

Shipping

Of course, your item will ship free, as Amazon gives you free shipping on orders over $25.

My Outlet Store Promo Code: Exclusive $30 Off Bodum Blender (Now Only $39)

Posted by on July 24, 2014 at 10:00 AM

My Outlet Store Promo Code: Exclusive $30 Off Bodum Blender (Now Only $39)

I was recently introduced to a brand new store called My Outlet Store, which is a store that is part of the CardSwap family of stores. They offer outlet or clearance deals on specific items. They are very new, so hopefully there won’t be many kinks for you while shopping, but I tried them out and didn’t have any troubles! They have offered Bargainmoose readers an exclusive promo code that is good for today and tomorrow on the Bodum 1.5L Bistro blender, which they are selling for $69, and it has a regular price of $129.99. Bargainmoose readers get another $30 off this price, making the blender only $39!

Click here to shop @ Myoutletstore.ca now

  • Coupon Code: BARGAINMOOSEISAWESOME
  • Discount: $30 off the Bodum blender
  • Expiry: 25th July 2014

You all know Bodum as a brand name for their tea accessories, but it seems like they also make blenders, and it looks like a good quality blender. It has five speeds for making everything from soups to smoothies at the right pace. The jar is BPA-free and has a rubber handle so it doesn’t slip. The lid is also pretty cool, with two openings – one with a grid that lets you get out just the liquids and no chunks, and the other for pouring it all out. The jug and lid are also dishwasher safe. You also have four colours to choose from:

  • red
  • black
  • green
  • white

While price comparing, I found that $39 is a phenomenal price for this blender. Sears sells it in white for $78.94. Future Shop sells it in black for $172.99. Best Buy sells it in the red for the same price as Future Shop.

Shipping is $4.95 for this item, although it looks like if you spend over $100 your shipping is free. But, the coupon only seemed to work once, giving me one $30 discount. If you were going to buy more than one blender, I’d do two separate orders as saving $30 is nicer than paying $4.95.

For this My Outlet Store coupons, and other exclusive coupons, always check the forum.

Sears Canada: Breville Hemisphere Control Blender Only $135 (49% Off)

Posted by on July 15, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Sears Canada: Breville Hemisphere Control Blender Only $135 (49% Off)

Sears has a hot deal on if you are looking for a high-quality blender. The Breville Hemisphere control blender is now only $135.99, with a regular price of $269.99, which amounts to 49% off.

First off, the price comparisons. Best Buy has it at full price for $269 and Shop.ca had it for $169. As you can see, nothing beats the price at Sears.

Now, the specs. This blender is intuitive powerhouse. It has five speeds, but it also has pre-programmed smoothie and ice crush settings, so you don’t have to guess. It has 750 watts and an LCD timer. The motor, jar and blades are all very high-quality, so you know that this blender is an investment that will passed on down to your children.

I have quite an old blender and I’ve been saying for a while that I need a new one. I make smoothies on a regular basis and I’d like to do more with my blender, like crush ice for drinks. Right now, I have to blend a bit, stir with spoon, blend again, stir again, repeat, repeat, repeat. It is a bit tedious for those healthy smoothies I make. I like all the features of this blender and I think it looks sleek enough to keep out on my counter.

I found one review on the Breville site, which was very promising:

This blender delivers consistent results and takes on difficult challenges with the ease of much more expensive machines. The “smoothie” function does a great job or breaking down hard ingredients like frozen fruit and whole almonds.

Shipping is free on orders over $99, so besides the deal, you’ll get this to your home with no additional cost.

The Bay Canada: $100 Off KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer + Bonus Ice Cream Bowl ($130 Value)

Posted by on July 14, 2014 at 4:30 PM

The Bay Canada: $100 Off KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer + Bonus Ice Cream Bowl ($130 Value)

Have you been wanting to buy the KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer? For the next couple of days, The Bay is offering a free ice cream bowl with the purchase of any KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer, which is also on sale for just $349.99 (reg. $449.99).

On its own, the KitchenAid ice cream stand mixer usually retails for $129.99 and it’s definitely a pretty nifty tool to have alongside the stand mixer. Although you can buy any regular ice cream maker for as low as $29 at Walmart, the KitchenAid far outweighs all of them because it takes less space, is bigger and the motor is known to last longer. This promotion also perfectly coincides with the current hot weather as you could use the bonus ice cream bowl to make frozen treats for the whole family to enjoy and cool off with as it sure beats overspending on Dairy Queen every day!

Amazon has the Artisan mixer on sale for $349.99 but the fact that The Bay is throwing in a free ice cream bowl is what pushes this deal over the edge. Arguably, Costco is selling the KitchenAid Professional 6000 lift stand mixer for $359.99 and while it’s only $10 more for a mixer that can hold more (5.7 L as opposed to 2.1 L with the Artisan), I actually have the professional one and I wish I would have gotten the artisan instead. The reason for this is that while I fancy myself a baker, I don’t bake nearly as often or as much as I would like. So if like me, you don’t see yourself making dozens upon dozens of cookies simultaneously or say, multiple triple-layered chocolate cakes, then I would definitely recommend the Artisan one.

Other points to consider when debating between the Artisan and the Professional is that the latter is much taller and may not fit on your counter, especially if your cupboards are lower. I also wonder about the effectiveness of making regular batches in such a large container as the Professional and I would think that a regular mixer would perfect mix much better.

You can also save up to 40% off a variety of KitchenAid small appliances as well right now. Among these, I found the KitchenAid Architect blender in candy apple red on sale for just $129.99 instead of $199.99. It can hold up to 48oz and has 5 different blend speeds: stir, mix, chop, puree, liquefy or chop ice.

Since The Bay typically offers free shipping on orders over $99, your order will also be shipped free of charge.

Shop.ca: Cuisinart 12 Cup Coffeemaker (Refurbished) (Now $69.99, Was $139.99)

Posted by on July 4, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Shop.ca: Cuisinart 12 Cup Coffeemaker (Refurbished) (Now $69.99, Was $139.99)

If you are in the market for a new coffeemaker, you may want to consider this refurbished Cuisinart 12 cup coffeemaker, which is now $69.99 (regularly $139.99) from Shop.ca.

I have to admit, my love affair with coffee is temperamental. I wouldn’t say I have a sophisticated palette when it comes to coffee but I definitely have a discerning one. About 8 years ago, our run of the mill, nothing special, coffeemaker up and quit one morning, however it was possibly the worst timing for me.  I was in the midst of prepping to host a bi-weekly baby group playdate for the first time. We are talking eight first time, sleep deprived moms who are not only starving for adult conversation with others who can relate to their woes, but a guaranteed, uninterrupted, much anticipated hot cup of java. So my loving husband ran out and splurged on a coffeemaker I had been coveting, but was clearly out of our budget at the time. It made the b-e-s-t cup of coffee, enough said.

Sadly that one bit the dust two years ago, and this time we just couldn’t splurge so we sucked it up and used our air miles on a coffeemaker that held a lot of promise. One feature that peaked our interest was the stainless steel thermal carafe. My husband did a lot of research on glass carafes vs. thermal carafes and we went for it. Sadly, I haven’t enjoyed a cup of coffee at home ever since.

I think it’s safe to say that I gave it the old college try. It’s been over two years and financially it just doesn’t make sense that I would rather walk to our local shop than to brew a pot at home. I’ve noticed my husband doing the same thing over the past few months.

And so we’ve decided it’s time to invest in yet another coffeemaker. Here is what piques my interest with this refurbished Cuisinart 12 cup Coffeemaker:

  • Manufacturer Re-certified with 90 days Warranty (original: Limited 3-Year Warranty)
  • Hot water system lets you enjoy instant soups, teas, cocoas and more, and offers indicators that let you know when your hot water is ready and when it s time to refill
  • Carafe temperature control offers a heater plate with high, medium, and low settings
  • Removable drip tray leaves you plenty of room for travel mugs

I read several reviews on this product and the only issue that seemed to span the different merchants was the five “loud” beeps at the end of the brewing cycle. Not sure if this is a deterrent or not but it will go into my list of cons for this product for now. However for the pros side of the list, I really do think the hot water system could be a nice feature as my husband drinks herbal tea on a nightly basis.

At most stores the cost is $129.99, however at Amazon.ca you can pick up the same machine, brand new through Cuisinart for $83.99. So if you are weary of the refurbished status you could go that route.

As always Shop.ca offers free shipping on all purchases, no minimum required. Plus if you collect Aeroplan points, you will receive a bonus 800 points with the first order of $99+ after adding your Aeroplan card to your account.

Lowes.ca: Cuisinart Square Belgian Waffle Maker (Now $75.99 Was $99.99)

Posted by on June 27, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Lowes.ca: Cuisinart Square Belgian Waffle Maker (Now $75.99 Was $99.99)

If you are looking for a way to impress your family at breakfast, check out this deal at Lowe’s: their Cuisinart Square Belgian Waffle Maker is now $25 off. Plus, use this coupon code (SAVETHETAX) to save the tax till Sunday, making the final price $75.99 (regularly $99.99).

My family loves when I break out the belgian waffle maker. We try to make a big breakfast on one weekend morning, and though this doesn’t always happen especially now that the nice weather is here, it’s something our children look forward to. It took me a couple of tries to come up with a belgian waffle recipe that worked for us, but once you have the base you’ll find that you can evolve from there. Recently I’ve even started incorporating different flours (coconut, buckwheat), but our stand by is a mixture of whole wheat and white flour.

The waffles are a fun way for the kids to customize a portion of their breakfast. Sometimes we incorporate fresh fruit (bananas, apples, raspberries, strawberries or blueberries, other times my children opt for chocolate chips or a combination of the two. Occasionally we get really crazy creative and incorporate fresh fruit and chococlate chips (bananas with peanut butter chips and mini chocolate chips are a fav). I know, we are w-i-l-d! If I’m going to go to the trouble of making waffles, I always make extra and freeze them. This way I can send half size portions in the children’s lunches.

Be sure to do your research on the best way to care for your waffle iron. The model we have only requires us to wipe the griddle clean after each use. Washing waffle irons with soap and water after each use can eventually impact the quality of waffle and the consistency in which you have satisfying results.

Although I don’t own this exact model, ours is a Cuisinart and we have owned it for over 16 years without fail. Check out this customer’s review on the model featured:

makes excellent waffles every time. This will, of course, also depend on the recipe used but no matter which recipe I try the waffles always come out right. I particularly like the 4-waffles- at a time- feature. This waffle maker gets a lot of workout in our household and doesn’t take that much space in the cupboard either.

This item ships via parcel shipping, which is free across Canada, so that’s an extra savings. As well, Lowe’s offers free in-store pick up: pay for it online and pick up within the hour. However, your local store must have it in stock.

Walmart Canada: Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer Only $64 (Was $128)

Posted by on June 25, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Walmart Canada: Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer Only $64 (Was $128)

Have you ever read the stories about the people who really wanted deep fried turkey and either burnt themselves really badly or started a fire? Well, it happens and you shouldn’t let it happen to you. Instead, get yourself an indoor electric turkey fryer and be safe. It is now deeply discounted at $64, with a regular price of $128.76 and you’ll get free shipping too.

I’ve never had the desire to deep fry a turkey, but I really have heard they are totally delicious. One of my favourite things is crispy chicken skin, so I can just imagine how crispy the turkey skin would get in here. Apparently, the meat also gets really succulent and of course, this is going to cook your turkey way faster than it would in an oven.

I checked out this deep fried turkey recipe from Michael Smith (one of my most favourite Canadian chefs), and I’ll tell you, it looks good. It cooks the turkey at about 3 minutes per pound, which is significantly faster than the oven method. I love how he instructs you in the recipe to make sure there are no flammable structures, children, pets or teenagers (because they aren’t quite children anymore, but you don’t want them burnt either) around the fryer when you are immersing the bird.

It looks like this machine is made by Butterball, so you know it is made for turkeys. It also says up to 4 minutes a pound with a maximum turkey weight of 14lbs. This means you could have Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner (or just a turkey feast) on the table in less than an hour. It includes a digital timer and thermostat temperature control so you know exactly when to pull the turkey out. It also uses 1/3 of the oil of regular turkey fryers, which is a bonus, since I’m sure you need quite a bit of oil to deep fry a turkey.

My husband loves deep frying everything and this would make a well-appreicated gift for him.

Shop.ca: Cuisinart Smart Power Duet Now $69.99

Posted by on June 22, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Shop.ca: Cuisinart Smart Power Duet Now $69.99

The Cuisinart Smart Power Duet is both a food processor and a blender in one. According to Shop.ca, the suggested retail price was $149.99 and they have it on sale for just $69.99.

I did a bit of price comparing. This machine is hard to find in Canada but I found it at Bed, Bath, & Beyond Canada for $99.99. On eBay the machine started at $99.99 + shipping, and the cheapest of the Amazon.ca marketplace sellers had it for $119 + $30 shipping.

If you live in a small apartment, a bachelor suite, or a studio apartment, then you know how important it is to keep only the bare necessities when it comes to kitchen appliances. We live in a 650 sqft. apartment so I am very familiar with the limited space a galley style kitchen provides. However, we have both a food processor and a blender that we use. The blender is used on a daily basis while the food processor is taken out a few times a month. The Cuisinart Smart Power Duet would be very practical in my household as the blender attachment would stay on the base at most all times, and the food processor attachment would just come out when we are making casseroles.

I am a big fan of appliances that do double-duty and save space, so this Cuisinart Smart Power Duet is attractive. Instead of two separate appliances sitting on your counter or in a cupboard, this is one base with two attachments. You have the 40oz glass blender jar for all your smoothies and summer drinks. Then, you have the work bowl that holds three cups of ingredients, the cover with feeding tube and pusher (with a liquid dispenser), and a reversible slicing/shredding disc. While most food processors come with multiple disks these days, we have nine disks for our food processor and have only ever used the basic shredder/slicer. Anyone want a set of food processor disks?

Do keep in mind that this will not be as powerful as a dedicated food processor or a dedicated blender. Yet, most people do not need the sort of power that a big food processor can dish out unless they are using it every day. This Cuisinart Duet does have seven speeds and a 500-watt motor though, so enough power to get through the daily grind.

Walmart Canada: Hamilton Beach Blender Only $15

Posted by on June 20, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Walmart Canada: Hamilton Beach Blender Only $15

Walmart has a fantastic deal on the Hamilton Beach Wave Station Express Dispensing blender, which is now only $14.94, with a regular price of $29.96. This item will also ship to you for free.

Just in time for blender season, make your smoothies, fruity drinks and more with this blender. It has nine blending functions and 700 watts of peak power. The WaveAction system is meant to pull everything from the top down, so no chunks are left behind. I find this so important as I load up my blender when I make smoothies, not really considering how to layer my fruit, protein powder, yogurt and coconut water, just throwing everything in there one by one. Usually I end up with chunks of protein powder (which is totally gross) or that nothing on top gets sucked on down. I have to keep opening the lid, stirring and restarting, so I know it is time for a new blender. For $15, my old blender is going to be history.

What is really cool about this blender is that it actually has a dispenser, which lets you pour your drink into a cup without taking the jar off the blender. This way you can keep coming back for more easily.

I price compared and found this definitely cheaper than the competitors. Hamilton Beach sells this blender for $39.99 and I couldn’t find it for $15 anywhere else, even in the U.S.

If you want a little more “bang” (as in more speeds), this Oster 12-speed stainless steel blender is also a great deal. It is not technically on sale, but this is the lowest price I’ve seen it. It is now only $24.94, as compared to Sears where it sells for $59.99 or Amazon where it is $49.98.

It all comes down to what features you need, if the look is important to you, etc., but both blenders are worthy deals.

Shipping is free! For more free shipping companies, take a look at our free shipping page.

Walmart Canada: Proctor Silex 12c Coffee Maker – $12

Posted by on June 9, 2014 at 8:30 PM

Walmart Canada: Proctor Silex 12c Coffee Maker   $12

Do you just need a cheap coffee maker that works? Let me introduce you to the Proctor Silex 12 Cup Switch Coffee Maker that Walmart Canada currently has for only $12 + free shipping. It is your basic coffee maker with no bells or whistles: it just makes coffee.

The coffee pot is already sold out in black, but it is still in stock in white, which is what I have linked to above.

How about a little price comparing? Sears.ca has this coffee maker listed at $19.97 + shipping (and handling). The manufacturer has the price for this coffee maker listed at $19.99 US and most the US websites had this coffee maker listed for around $20. I will admit that Amazon.ca has this sale coffeemaker (in black) on sale from $24.99 down to $12; however the free shipping minimum for Amazon.ca is $25 so you would either have to pay for shipping or buy other stuff to get it to ship for free. Walmart’s offer is still better.

I actually ran across this deal while looking for a simple coffee pot for my parents. Their coffeemaker had broken down and they had not been able to get into the city lately to pick up a new one. They just wanted something basic without any bells and whistles so I was trying to find this one in store somewhere so I could take it out to them. Every single location in town (we are talking a population of one million here) was sold out of this coffee maker. Evidently, it is a popular little beast.

If you are looking for a timer or a clock, this is not the model for you. It just comes with a simple on/off switch which is illuminated for your late night coffee habit. The maker does feature an automatic pause and serve function where the coffee will stop dripping so you can take a cup. Besides that, you have your standard dishwasher safe carafe and compact design. This baby should fit on any counter top. The maker fits 8 – 12 cup filters and should fit the reusable basket as well.

Everywhere I look this machine has good reviews. One reviewer commented:

This is an excellent machine especially for the low cost, I am extremely satisfied with this coffee maker.

I figure that you just cannot go wrong when a coffee machine only costs $12 with free delivery to your door.

Shop.ca: Cuisinart Gelato & Ice Cream Maker only $201

Posted by on June 9, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Shop.ca: Cuisinart Gelato & Ice Cream Maker only $201

Shop.ca has an amazing deal on the Cuisinart Gelato and Ice Cream Maker. The original price is $349.99, on sale for $211 but when you add this Shop.ca coupon code (MOOSE2014) you save an additional $10, making the final price $201.

If your husband and children are anything like mine, they love their ice cream! They especially love it after summer sporting events (soccer, t-ball, ball hockey…we are a go, go, go kinda family). There is nothing better then sharing a cold summer treat on a hot afternoon or hazy humid evening. We will often stop at the local ice cream stand on our way home, but that can get expensive. I like the option of making our own at home, the initial investment might seem like a stretch but over time it will definitely save us money and I like the idea of being able to control the ingredients. My husband is limited when it comes to his favourite frozen treat as he is lactose intolerant, this is the perfect opportunity for us to make his own coconut milk ice cream! Another feature I like about this model is that you don’t have to pre-freeze the unit in order to make gelato or ice cream, it has a built-in compressor which allows you to make ice cream at the drop of a hat (and baseball glove in our case).

I shopped around to see if I could find it cheaper elsewhere, the next best price is through Amazon, where it is $259.

Here is one review from Amazon that may help you decide if making homemade ice cream is worth the splurge:

Amazing machine! No disappointments here! Easy to use and makes the best ice cream, frozen yogurts, sorbets and more. Looks beautiful as well.

If you are thinking this would make a great Father’s Day gift, like I am, you will be happy to know that it leaves the warehouse in 4 business days or sooner. So if you order it today it may just arrive in time for the big day.

As always Shop.ca offers FREE shipping on all purchases, no minimum required. Plus if you collect Aeroplan points, you will receive a bonus 800 points with the first order of $99+ after adding your Aeroplan card to your account.

Amazon.ca: West Bend 2.5 oz Theater Popper $61 (Was $120)

Amazon Canada has a hot deal on this West Bend 2.5-Ounce Theater Popper that was $119.99 and is now discounted to $60.98.

I’m not sure anyone needs this popcorn machine but if you have a larger family, a bunch of friends, or throw hopping parties then this might just be the perfect popcorn maker for you. I could see it being super useful for kids parties as most kids I know just love popcorn. Also, if you have a home theater or your den is set up like a home theater, it would be nice to make larger batches of popcorn (that doesn’t come out of the microwave).

The cabinet holds up to 1.5 gallons of popcorn which is great for gatherings of popcorn lovers. The kettle disassembles for easy dishwasher clean up. As one reviewer said:

We use this popper almost every night! Once you get the right kernel: oil ratio, nearly every kernel pops. Worth every penny.

We had a popper that used oil and while it certainly took some time to get use to, it made much larger batches of popcorn and delighted my husband to no end.

This product will ship for free as it costs over $25.

Amazon Canada: Cuisinart Brewing System $39.99 (Was $120)

Amazon.ca has a smashing deal on the Cuisinart SS-300C Compact Single Serve Brewing System for Keurig K-cups. Originally $119.99, the system is on sale for $39.99.

I did a little price comparing. This exact system (I compared model numbers) costs $149.99 at Future Shop. I found it on sale at London Drugs for $99.99 and Cookworks.ca was the best competitor with their clearance price of $69.99. Despite this Cuisinart brewer being on sale and clearance at other places, Amazon’s price is the best.

The brewer’s reservoir holds up to 10 oz of water and brews in under two minutes. The reviews on this machine are pretty divided with one review for each possible ranking. A couple reviewers said that the water wasn’t hot enough and one of those reviewers gives very good suggestions for how to easily increase the temperature. Another reviewer warned that coffee mugs do not fit in the brewer cup area so you would need to transfer your beverage.

Most of these reviews (including the positive) were given when the compact brewer was a much higher price. For this much of a lower price, I think it is worthy of consideration.

You will get free shipping on the brewer as it costs over $25.

Walmart Canada: Coolwall 2-Slice Toaster Only $8

Walmart Canada: Coolwall 2 Slice Toaster Only $8

Walmart is having a small appliance sale right now and I found an amazing deal on a 2-slice Coolwall toaster for only $8, originally $17.97 and of course it will also ship for free. There are some other great deals happening too.

With lots of new grads out there, I bet lots of kids will be heading off to college and university in the fall. Whether it is a dorm room or their own apartment, there are a few items they might need of their own, like this toaster. You really can’t beat an $8 toaster. This would also make a great camping toaster. We could use this as an extra toaster to take with us to hotels to save on the cost of breakfast (and sometimes dinner) when we travel for the kids.

While this toaster has a crappy review, this is an $8 toaster and I’m sure it at least does the job of toasting toast. Seems pretty basic to me.

If you aren’t interested in the toaster, I see a number of other small appliances on clearance, like this Salton cordless kettle with variable temperature control. Last night my mom and I were talking about weight loss and she said it helps to drink hot water with lemon in the morning. She was a little shocked when I told her I don’t have a kettle. I could get this one and pay only $37 rather than the original $74.88. I like that it has temperature control as I don’t like scalding hot water in my tea.
