By , dealnews contributor

Now that all the guests have gone home, and you've cleaned the last of the noisemakers and holiday gift wrap from under the couch, it's time to start getting serious about those home renovation resolutions you've been mulling over. Today's roundup features four Editors' Choice home deals, including an all-time price low on a Kenmore dishwasher, plus terrific bargains from Lowe's, BrandsMart USA, and more. Looking for more options? Be sure to check out our daily home and garden deals.

  1. Kenmore 24" Built-In Dishwasher
    Store: Sears
    Price: $246.99 via coupon code "SEARS2012" with free in-store pickup
    Lowest By: $24

    Is It Worth It?: With this Editors' Choice deal, you can pick up a new dishwasher in Black (pictured) or Bisque for cheaper than it might cost to repair your old one. In fact, it's the lowest total price we've seen for any 24" Kenmore built-in dishwasher. Be sure to opt for in-store pickup to avoid the $69.99 shipping charge. (Note that this dishwasher weighs 75 lbs.) This Energy Star model features a high-temperature rinse which purportedly kills up to 99.99% of bacteria and operates at a quiet 57 decibels.

  2. Dirt Devil Whiskers SV Robotic Vacuum
    Store: BrandsMart USA
    Price: $64.88 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $61

    Is It Worth It?: If your kid can put a robot on his wish list, why can't you? This Editors' Choice deal comes in at $60 under our February mention (which also included 10 dust pads). This hard floor cleaner features a 50-minute run time between recharges, rinsable filter, and more. A robot that actually cleans the house for you? Now that's a toy that both kids and adults can appreciate.

  3. Hamilton Beach 3-Burner Pedestal Propane Gas Grill
    Store: Sears
    Price: $79.97 with free in-store pickup
    Lowest By: $310

    Is It Worth It?: Talk about an Editors' Choice that cooks! Although this grill is available for in-store pickup only, and with stock varying by ZIP code, it comes in at $110 below our June mention and $310 under list. It features 33,000 BTUs, three burners, two porcelain-coated cast iron grates, 552-square-inch cooking area, and more. Designed for smaller patios or areas where space is limited, the grill measures a tidy 55.4" wide.

  4. Nest Learning Thermostat
    Store: Lowe's
    Price: $198 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $42
    Expires: January 5

    Is It Worth It?: This Editors' Choice product might have an unusual name, but you'll definitely want one nesting in your home to help you with energy savings. This programmable thermostat "learns" how you set your home's temperature, downloads data, can be controlled from your smartphone (via built-in WiFi), and more. Note that not all home HVACs are Nest-compatible; click here to see if it will work with yours. (Nest is compatible with about 75% of 24-volt heating and cooling systems.)

  5. US-Mattress Sale
    Discount: 50% off with up to an extra 40% off
    Shipping: Free shipping

    Is It Worth It?: The savings in this New Year Sale will delight, as prices start at $259, yielding some best-ever discounts. A best bet includes the Sealy Raffia Firm Queen Mattress (pictured) for $259, which features a 5" foam core, measures 5.5" high, and comes with a 1-year warranty. We also recommend the Sealy Belfair Plush Euro Pillowtop Full Mattress for $474 and the Simmons Beautyrest Classic Tomahawk Firm King Mattress for $544. You can browse the entire US-Mattress New Year Sale, too. But don't sleep on it, as there's no telling how long these prices will last.
