The machine creates fresh and frozen treats in less than 20 minutes, and features an easy-lock lid, double-insulated freezer bowl, and advanced mixing paddle.

Rubbermaid 4-Cup Food Storage Container 60-Pack
Expiration: January 13
Sixty 4-cup containers, each with a lid – the perfect way to store and plan your meals when you make chili for eight, and only serve for four, or you cook up a beef bourguignon for four, but serve for two. You can fix those numbers as you like, but cooking a little extra on the night so you have easily-heated lunches throughout the week is a timesaver, money-saver, and assuming you're keeping an eye on things, calorie-saver. So this Staff Pick Rubbermaid set is a lifesaver.
NutriBullet Veggie Bullet Spiralizer & Food Processor
Lowest By: $35
Expiration: January 9
If you're all in on buying the ingredients, following the recipes, and eating the profits, but just can't seem to make your knives do the work in between, this may be the answer you need. With settings for slicing, shredding, and spiralizing, it takes the hard work out of cutting fruit and vegetables. Fittingly enough, Walmart has cut the price, all the way to half-off – you can either pick it up in-store, or pad your order to over $35 to get it shipped for free.
Refurb Cuisinart 12-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $18
Kitchen-centric savings don't start and end at food. Taking the Starbucks stop out of your commute in favor of a homemade coffee (held in an environmentally-friendly reusable mug!) will save you plenty in the long run, and take some of the temptation of the mostly-sugar concoctions out of the mix. If you don't mind buying refurbished, this Cuisinart 12-cup coffeemaker saves you $18 over buying new. The self-cleaning appliance features 1- to 4-cup settings, and includes a 12-cup carafe with ergonomic handle, dripless spout, and knuckle guard.
A 90-day Cuisinart warranty applies.
