Home: 3-Pack of Wireless Remote Control Outlets $14 (Reg. $20+), more

Today only, as part of its Deals of the Day, Best Buy is offering the Samsung Lift and Clean Bagless Vacuum Cleaner (VU10H3021PY/AA, VU3000) for $99.99 shipped (also on Best Buy’s eBay store). That’s more than $80 below the original listing, $75 under Amazon, and the best we can find by $50+. It features Cyclone Force Dual tech, HEPA filtration, and a 2-in-1 mini turbo brush design. Rated 4+ stars on both Best Buy and Amazon from over 120 customers combined.

We also have a really solid price on the manufacturer refurbished Dyson V6 Motorhead Stick Vacuum (Man. refurb) for $229.99 shipped from Dyson’s official eBay page. That’s $170 under the original new price and the lowest total we can find.

Etekcity via Amazon is offering its 3-Pack of Wireless Remote Control Electrical Outlet Switches (3Rx-1Tx) for $19.98, but code Y6P4YECM will drop your total down to $13.98. They ship free for Prime members or in orders over $49. That’s more than $10 below some listings, 20% under the original price, matching our previous mention and the best we can find. While certainly a more low-tech solution, at $14 Prime shipped they are much less expensive than just a single WeMo smart plug, for example. This particular bundle ships with 3 adapters/plugs and a remote with a 100-foot range. Rated 4.3/5 stars from over 770 Amazon customers.

Vacuum sealer Stories December 16, 2014


Last week, I debuted Kitchen Tech, a brand new 9to5Toys column designed to help you bring restaurant-quality dining into your own home. We were thrilled with the response to the first column on making magical ice balls for cocktails, so today’s column explores the opposite extreme: heating water in a precisely controlled way to get equally amazing results with vacuum-sealed bags of food.


Some people call this sous vide (soo vee-d, “under vacuum”) cooking; others know it as cooking with an immersion circulator. Quietly used in restaurant kitchens for decades, sous vide cooking started to gain mainstream attention following the release of the avant-garde professional cookbook set Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking. Author Nathan Myhrvold ranks sous vide gear as the #4 and #5 most important modernist cooking tools in the newer consumer version of the book, Modernist Cuisine at Home, just behind a digital scale, thermometer, and pressure cooker.

In any case, temperature-controlled water baths produce the juiciest, most succulent meats you’ll ever taste, and can perform other magic tricks… like making perfect eggs, just-right vegetables, and rich, creamy sauces. Below, we’ll explain how sous vide cooking works, and show you how to do it at home.
