Walmart Canada: Slow Cookers On Rollback

Posted by on April 21, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Walmart Canada: Slow Cookers On Rollback

With the warm weather here, you might not be thinking of hearty foods like stews and such, so a slow cooker could be the last thing on your mind. But, slow cookers cook way more than just stews, and if you are a working person, they can be a lifesaver. Walmart has slow cookers on rollback with as much as $21 off, so this is a great sale to check out.

Even as a stay-at-home mom, I find it hard to find time to get dinner ready. I usually work in the afternoons right until I pick my children up from school and then we have about 30 minutes to get something ready and eat before we go to extracurricular activities on most nights. If I could prepare dinner in the morning and have it cook all afternoon, it would make a big difference in what we eat on those nights. The great thing too is that a slow cooker won’t heat up your house like an oven will, so even on those scorching hot days, a slow cooker is a better idea than something baked in the oven.

The Crock Pot Smart-Pot 5-quart (4.7L) slow cooker is a great low-cost slow cooker. It also says that the crock pot uses less energy than the stove, which is great when your hydro bills rocket while using your air conditioning. This one was $39.96, now $29.

The Crock-Pot 5-quart oval programmable slow cooker has many more bells and whistles than the one above, but for the same price. The only advantage I don’t see to this one is that it is white and the black looks much nicer. Was $44.97, now $29.

There are two other models available, both were their own perks, so it is all about what you need, but for less than $40, you can get an amazing slow cooker. Of course, they also ship for free.

Sears Canada: Babycakes Cake Pop Maker Only $9 (Was $30)

Sears Canada: Babycakes Cake Pop Maker Only $9 (Was $30)

Sears has a fantastic deal on Babycakes items today only, including this Babycakes cake pop maker, now only $8.99, was $29.99.

My mom gifted us this cake pop maker for Christmas and it was an instant hit! She gifted it with a basket of goodies too, all for making and decorating cake pops. We’ve used it a number of times, just for fun or for making cake pops as gifts. We even made gift pops for all three of my kid’s classes for Valentine’s Day. They are so easy to make and the kids love doing it. It is sort of like having your own little Timbit maker. If you don’t believe me, read all the glowing reviews in the ratings and reviews section. This price is absolutely fabulous and I think the cake pop maker would make a great Easter gift too.

Not only is the cake pop maker on for 70% off, but a few other Babycakes items like:

My cake pop maker is such a hit in our house, I’m considering the mini cupcake maker and the decoration station to go along with it.

Shipping is free on a purchase over $99.

New Egg Canada: Fagor Slow Juicer Only $99 (Was $199)

Posted by on April 10, 2014 at 6:00 PM

New Egg Canada: Fagor Slow Juicer Only $99 (Was $199)

Save 50% on the Fagor slow juicer from New Egg, now only $99, was $199.

Juicing is a great way to get healthy. It is fast, easy and can be affordable. The Fagor slow juicer has a two-step process, which extracts the most juice from your food. On top of this it uses less energy than most juicers, which reduces your carbon footprint in the process. Alternatively, you can squeeze the juice yourself to make it completely carbon-neutral, but good luck getting all that carrot juice out of your carrot!

I have a juicer and find it an easy way to sneak veggies into my kids. I buy organic fruits and veggies also, so I know they are getting the freshest and most quality juice, unlike that carton of Tropicana that has been sitting in a silo for up to a year (seriously, I read this somewhere).

My question here was what is the difference between a slow juicer and a regular juicer. The answer is that slow juicing has no oxidation or separation, which means it preserves the nutrients closer to the natural state.

I didn’t see any other Canadian stores selling this juicer, but in the States Walmart sells it for $159 on rollback and Home Depot sells it for $199. Both of these prices are in USD as well, so you can see the New Egg price is a good one.

Shipping is an additional $6.99.

Amazon Canada: Zojirushi Rice Cookers, Thermal Mugs & More 35% Off

Posted by on April 9, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Amazon Canada: Zojirushi Rice Cookers, Thermal Mugs & More 35% Off

Zojirushi is a well-known and trusted name in thermal storage and rice cookers. Reading about them online, I found that people loved their items and the only thing that stopped them from buying was the high price point, but with 35% off, that might change.

The first item that caught my eye was the Mr. Bento stainless steel lunch jar. What a perfect way to store your lunch for work and school! The round jar has four food bowls for hot or cold lunch storage in a vacuum insulated stainless steel jar. The bowls are microwaveable and easy to clean in four different sizes. It also includes a convenient carrying bag. This lunch jar is perfect for keeping all your different items separate, but in one package. I would use it for salads and assemble then at lunch.It was $66, but now only $44.99.

With amazing reviews, the Micom water boiler and warmer (4L) is a must-buy as it is much more versatile than just a high-end kettle. You’ll save $50 off the regular price of $159.99 and pay only $109.99.

If rice cooking is what you are after, save $100 on the induction heating rice cooker and warmer. It also has some pretty fantastic reviews! Was $350, now $250.99.

Shipping on all items will be free, as they’ll pass the $25 test.

Well.ca: Breville Juice & Blend Only $359

Posted by on April 3, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Well.ca: Breville Juice & Blend Only $359

Well.ca has the Breville Juice & Blend blender/juicer on for only $359, was $449.96. I price compared this unit and found Well.ca to be by far the best price, except in the case of Amazon, who also has it for $359, but if you use one of our coupons, you’ll get another $10 off, making Well.ca the winner and making this a fantastic deal. If you are not a new customer, why not try opening a new account with a different email?

What’s totally awesome about this machine is that it is an all-in-one item, which means you don’t clog up your counter or cupboards with two small appliances. With a single motorized base, you can change the tops to either juice or blend to make juices, smoothies, soups, dips and more.

Reviews on both Amazon and Well.ca give it five stars. The reasons include its great looks, simplicity in use, easy to clean up and the power that it brings to making all your food and drinks. While you might think $350 is a steep price to pay (even though it is almost $100 less than the original price), one reviewer summed it up nicely with – you get what you pay for.

Well.ca offers free shipping on orders over $25, and since this order exceeds that, you’ll get this also shipped to you for free.

Sears Canada: KitchenAid 5-Speed Stand Blender Now $89.94

Posted by on March 27, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Sears Canada: KitchenAid 5 Speed Stand Blender Now $89.94

Sears Outlet Canada is selling this KitchenAid KSB1570 5-Speed Stand Blender in red for only $89.94.

Sears fails to list the original price so I did a little price comparing. Amazon.ca has the exact same blender (in the exact same colour) on sale from $149.99 down to $111.11. The Bay Canada does not have the same colour but they do have the same model of stand mixer which was on sale for $99.99. Sears still has it for $10 cheaper.

The appliance I use most in my house is my KitchenAid blender. I make smoothies and blend chunky soups into puree mostly. This blender has a 56-ounce BPA-free pitcher that is shatter-, scratch-, and stain-resistant and also dishwasher-safe. It comes with five speeds plus a crush ice mode and a pulse mode. The jar locks into place to keep your jar from vibrating loose while blending stubborn ingredients together. KitchenAid is a well known brand and holds up really well to vigorous use.

Sears is offering free shipping on orders of $99 or more currently. If you order is under $99, I suggest getting it shipping to your local store to avoid additional shipping costs.

Amazon Canada: KitchenAid Ultra Power Stand Mixer Only $229!

Posted by on February 10, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Amazon Canada: KitchenAid Ultra Power Stand Mixer Only $229!

I found a super fantastic deal at Amazon right now. Get the KitchenAid Ultra Power stand mixer for only $229, was $399. This deal is the real deal as I researched and found the exact same model for $367 at NewEgg, on sale for $299 at BestBuy, and $299 at Home DepotPlus, you’ll get it shipped to you for free.

I think this item makes a great Valentine’s gift for the baker or chef in your family. I don’t often bake, but my husband does, and I know he’d find this a fun toy to start baking me lots of fattening but scrumptious desserts. It is even in red, the love colour to make it more Valentines-ish.

Beyond the gorgeous look of it, it has all the functions you’d want in a stand mixer like a tilt head, metal gears, direct drive transmission and planetary mixing action. It has ten speeds from fast whip to a slow stir. I’m getting excited just thinking about it.

With 59 reviews, it gets a 4.6 star rating out of 5, which is very good and the reviewers go as far as to say it is amazing and excellent.

Amazon Canada: West Bend Theatre Popper Only $83

Posted by on February 4, 2014 at 1:45 PM

Amazon Canada: West Bend Theatre Popper Only $83

Deck out your man cave or family room with this West Bend 2.5-ounce theatre popper in red. It looks nice and provides you with fresh and theatre-like popcorn. What could be better? It was $119.99, now $83.99. Price comparing I didn’t see this many places in Canada, but when I did it was always $120.

This item isn’t just great for using at home, but you can also take it to your local street party, fun fairs, fundraisers and more and you’ll be the hit of the party. I say this because I’ve seen people bring these to these types of events and people will pay big money (ok about $1) to buy popcorn from this baby. This and the sno-cone machine go over very well. So, if you are a charity or run events, you don’t want to miss out on this deal and save yourself almost $40.

The popcorn cabinet holds up to 1.5 gallons of popcorn – oh what I could do with all that popcorn – and the parts are easy to clean and resistant to grease and oil. You can even pop them in the dishwasher.

Reviewers like this machine too and this very honest review will tell you:

I’m all smiles, my wife is all smiles, and my oldest is all smiles so there’s nothing esle to say except I highly recommend you get one ASAP!

This item will also ship for free.

London Drugs Canada: Save on Heaters

Posted by on February 2, 2014 at 5:00 PM

London Drugs Canada: Save on Heaters

London Drugs has a very nice sale on heaters for your home going on right now.

This is our first winter in a new climate and in a new apartment. The electric wall heaters in the apartment are pretty darn near useless and our heating bill went through the roof for December and January. What is worse, is that we are still cold. We just cannot get the place to warm up enough because the heaters are on the outside walls under windows. Really counter-productive. So yesterday I found this awesome deal at London Drugs on heaters and my husband picked up this Honeywell Energy Smart Tower Heater that was $74.99 and is now $49.99.

We tried it out yesterday and it was the first time I had been warm in weeks. We moved it to the bedroom when we went to bed and it was so toasty warm I had to strip off blankets. We decided today that heaters are certainly the answer to our heating problems so today (this minute actually) my husband is out getting a second one for our bedroom. We don’t need the 360 degree capacity of the tower for our bedroom so he is going to get the Honeywell Cool Touch Heater that was $64.99 and is now $39.99.

There are many other heaters on sale as well including this Bionaire Readiator Heater that was $79.99 and is now $45. Percentage wise, it and the Honeywell Cool Touch are the highest discounted heaters.

Most of these you can order online and pickup at your local store to avoid shipping charges. If you want it shipped to you, shipping varies depending on your province and can be found here.

Best Buy & Future Shop Canada: Cuisinart 5.5 Qrt Stand Mixer Now $250 (Save $250)

Posted by on February 2, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Best Buy & Future Shop Canada: Cuisinart 5.5 Qrt Stand Mixer Now $250 (Save $250)

Best Buy and Future Shop Canada both have the Cuisinart 12-Speed 800 Watt Stand Mixer in white on sale for $249.99 (save $250). Quantities are limited on both websites so buy sooner rather than later.

If the stand mixer is sold out at one place then you might want to see if the other still has it in stock.

I price compared the mixer with The Bay Canada which also has it on sale from $429.99 down to $343.99. While the starting price is lower than Best Buy or Future Shop’s starting price, the sale price is still much higher than theirs as well.

The stand mixer includes a mixing paddle, chef’s whisk, dough hook, and splash-guard. The bowl has a 5.5 quart capacity and the twelve speeds are powered by a 800 watt motor. The Cuisinart stand mixer also features a countdown timer that will automatically shut-off your mixing for perfect results.

Enjoy free shipping on this stand mixer as it costs over $20.

Shop.ca: Heaven Fresh Digital Food Steamer Only $55

Shop.ca: Heaven Fresh Digital Food Steamer Only $55

If healthy eating is on your list of to-dos, have you ever tried steaming your food? By steaming, you get maximum nutrition without fattening oils and sauces. Shop.ca has a wonderful deal on the Heaven Fresh Digital Food Steamer, now only $55, with a before price of $69. The best part of this deal is that their before price is actually low for what I see price comparison wise. Well.ca sells this model for $89 and Amazon sells it for $69.

I have a steamer that was given to us as a wedding gift, and we bring it out any time we want to steam food. My favourite thing to steam is broccoli. I love steamed broccoli and it comes out so perfect as long as you read the instructions and follow the proper times. You can also steam almost any other food like chicken breasts, fish, asparagus, and I’ve even heard you can make hard boiled eggs in a steamer, which sounds just too easy.

What’s great about this steamer is that there are preset program buttons for different foods, so you really can’t oversteam your broccoli. It is a large size with 11.5 litres of capacity, although there are separators so that you can steam more than one food at the same time. You can steam, then throw most of it in the dishwasher, which is always a bonus. The containers all collapse down so you don’t have this giant appliance to store when you are done.

If you are still on the fence, read the reviews, like this one:

This is a great way to make a wonderful, savory meal with very little mess. Put the items that take the longest to cook near the bottom and the more tender items near the top and you will have a healthy low fat meal with very little mess on no time at all.

It is easy to store and easy to clean up since the parts are dishwasher safe. This is a win win in any kitchen!

Shop.ca provides free shipping, and be sure to use any rewards points you have accumulated if you can.

Get the Salton Air Wave health cooker for only $189.99, was $249.99 at Shop.ca. Don’t forget to use any rewards points you may have too, to bring the price down even more!

I price compared this baby and found this to be quite a good deal. Even the notorious for low prices Walmart has it for $249 and Amazon has it for $201.

So, why do you need another small appliance and how can it keep you healthy? Well, this little powerhouse can cook everything from french fries to pizza and more. Sounds totally healthy right? Well it bakes everything, but with triple cooking technology that is 30% faster than a conventional oven. Not just healthy, it saves you money on electricity. This would also make a great item for a single person or someone living without an oven, who just wants something small to cook with.

It includes a rotating drum kit, rotisserie kit with tongs, rack handle, non-stick saute/baking pan and high and low racks. There are pre-programmed digital controls that are way easy to use.

Shipping is of course free, as this is Shop.ca and take advantage of the new customer $15 off of $99 promotion if you are a new customer.

Amazon Canada: Cuisinart Griddler Only $70 (Was $140)

Amazon has a great deal on the Cuisinart Griddler Centro in silver and black for only $69.99, was $139.99. Price comparing, I found this item at Shop.ca for $129.99, so you are saving more than half the price.

In the throes of winter, many of us do not want to stand on our deck and get grilly with it. Food doesn’t even cook that great on a BBQ at this time of year. So stay indoors and use this handy grilling machine. It might ever surpass your BBQ in ease of use with auto-rotating skewers that grill all your food to even perfection and you can sit and drink your beer in peace and watch. It is so easy, the product description lists the easy operation as the indicator light letting you know when it is in use. That seems pretty easy to me! Is it on? Yes! Sitting time.

You can grill on the top non-stick grill plate and cook your kebabs or hot dogs underneath so there is plenty of space to cook dinner for the whole family. With some amazing reviews here is what one guy had to say:

I have cooked sausages on the rollers which worked great and steak on the grill which also worked great. Then I flipped the grill over and cooked eggs over easy which worked amazing. I did not put anything on the grill before cooking and cleanup was just a wipe of a cloth when cooled down.

Shipping is free on this item.

Walmart Canada: Big Boss Juicer Only $39

Walmart Canada: Big Boss Juicer Only $39

Juicing is an incredible way to get healthy. I juice regularly and it is a great way to get your greens, oranges and reds into you. Get the Big Boss juicer at Walmart right now for only $39, was $59.98, a savings of $20.

This is a really great price for a juicer, especially if you have never juiced before and don’t want to invest a lot of money into it. It has a 700-watt motor and is two speeds depending on what you are juicing. Easy to clean and you can put the parts in the dishwasher, this stainless steel model also looks nice right on your counter. You can put whole fruit right into it while it juices on one side and collects the pulp on the other.

If you have never juiced before, don’t be surprised at how little juice really comes out. But, if you think about it, this is pure juice with no sugars, dyes, preservatives and it is as fresh as you can get, which means it is all nutrients. Commercial juice is so bad for you and I’ve read that juices like Tropicana (which I used to drink a ton of) sit in huge containers for up to a year before I buy them at the store! Sounds disgusting to me. The pulp that comes out the back is also great for adding to muffins or soups because there is a lot of fibre in that pulp and you don’t want to waste its goodness.

Read the reviews, two of which are good, one of which is not, or do your own research on other websites. I paid over $100 for my juicer so you have to consider this one is less than $40 and not going to work like a more expensive model.

Walmart ships for free, with no minimum, so expect this baby at your door in no time, with no extra charges!
