Cook Fast, Live Young: Black Friday Deals for Your Kitchen
You may associate Black Friday with getting deals on laptops and Christmas gifts, but you can also take home some discounted items for your kitchen. The best way to find out what's available is to look through your local sales circulars, but I've compiled a few deals that may be available in your area. And don't forget, if you hate getting up early and braving the crowds, there are many deals available online on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Samsung French Door Refrigerator
Sales Price: $1,800
You Save: $500
Looking to upgrade your old fridge? Now might be the time. Home Depot
and Lowe's have many fridges on sale, but this is the one that was recommended by Consumer Reports and also had a significant savings.
Black & Decker 4-Slice Countertop Oven
Sales Prices: $19.00
You Save: $10.99
Save energy in 2011 by using a toaster oven instead of your full-size over when you can. Visit the site to see if it's available at a store near you before you head out on Black Friday.
Cuisinart Handy-Prep 3-Cup Food Processor
at Best Buy
Sales Price: $39.99
You Save: $40.00
Make it easier to live up to your New Year's Resolution to cook more. Food processors make all that prep work a lot faster.
5-qt. Crock-Pot Slow Cooker
at Sam's Club
Sales Price: $16.98
You Save: $14.00
Slow cookers allow you to "set it and forget it" until dinner time, which is great on busy days. Be aware that you do need a membership (or a friend with a membership!
) to benefit from Sam's Club deals.
Black & Decker Blender, Coffeemaker, or Electric Griddle
Sales Price: $9.44
You Save: Est. between $10 and $20
All three items are under $10. They also have a Black and Decker Triple Slow Cooker that is just a little more (and also a little bigger
) than the one at Sam's Club, in case you can't get a hold of a membership there for $18.92.
