You can love pasta but totally hate straining it. That’s part of the beauty of this Kitchen Gizmo Snap-N-Strain strainer. This 4.5-star rated gadget, which has more than 6,200 positive reviews on Amazon, is one of those cult-favorite, wonderfully weird items that actually works.

Does your phone charger need an upgrade? This RAVPower 30-watt 2-port fast charger is the model you’ve been waiting for. You can use it to power up two devices at once, as it’s built with a USB-C power delivery port that delivers an 18-watt charge and a USB-A port that gives a 12-watt charge for 30-watts of total output. This 4.8-star device, which has more than 2,000 glowing reviews on Amazon, can juice iPhones in about 30 minutes, say shoppers. It’s slim, 2.8-ounce body makes this little guy easy to travel with, and it doesn’t add too much bulk, either. Originally priced at $15.99 and on sale for $13.99, you can get it for $10.99 thanks to an on-page coupon located beneath the price for $5 in savings.

Humidifiers add moisture to the air when it’s too dry, which makes them a must-have during the harsher winter months. If you’re trying to ease the pain of a sore throat or a stubborn cough, it could be a huge help. Right now, you can get one of the best humidifiers we’ve ever tested, the Honeywell HCM350W, on sale for a solid discount. Originally $69.99, it’s on sale in white for $61.99 for $8 in savings. We considered it the best evaporator humidifier (i.e., devices that don’t need to heat water to create humidity) because it has a built-in ultraviolet (UV) light that the company claims can kill up to 99.999 percent of microorganisms. It was also able to raise our testing chamber’s humidity by 17 percent. This 4.2-star rated machine—which has more than 8,000 stellar reviews on Amazon—also comes with a replaceable water filter, which helped prevent white dust from forming in hard-water spots.

In testing, this Kasa smart light switch by TP-Link impressed the heck out of us, thanks to its voice compatibility with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, plus its easy set up. Originally priced at $19.99, this 4.6-star rated gem drops to $14.99 when you use the on-page coupon located beneath the price, for a savings of $5. With more than 10,000 glowing reviews on Amazon, this 4.6-star rated item is a hit with shoppers, with one even writing: “I was able to install these myself in about 10 [to] 15 mins. The app has an amazing walk through to make it even easier.”

5. Nearly $20 off: One of our favorite running watches
What do you get for the runner who has everything? A better watch. (Photo: Amazon)
Whether you’re an experienced runner or just trying to buy a gift for one, a running watch is a fabulous investment. For a limited time, you can get this Garmin Forerunner 45, originally $199.99, on sale for $180, so you’ll save about $20. This bad Larry is one of the best running watches we’ve ever sampled for its well-designed user interface, ample size options and no-frills functionality. Like other Garmin watches that we’re obsessed with—namely, our top pick, the Garmin Forerunner 245 Music ($329)—setting up the Forerunner 45 is easy and we liked that the watch’s round shape made the screen highly visible and simple to read. We weren’t crazy about the GPS in this device, as our testers found it often took minutes rather than seconds to acquire (which could be inconvenient for anyone running a race or in new areas). Still, it’s a solid choice, and especially ideal for the dedicated runner who wants a watch without too many added bells and whistles.
