We LOVE a good deal. Every week we spend hours scouring the internet for the best products at the lowest prices to share with you. But there’s only one thing that makes a deal on a product even better: it solves a problem.
You probably already know that Amazon is full of items that meet both criteria. What you might not know is that Amazon has a secret section with awesome surplus items you can get for a bargain. It’s packed with everything you need, but we’ve focused on the items that can simplify, clarify, or just make your life a little easier, all at a huge discount.
We searched through hundreds of products, from holiday savers to whimsical items to make relaxation more relaxing, and picked our favorite items. Scroll down for hidden gems to help out around the house.
Nonstick cookware isn’t meant to last forever, and if your set has seen better days, this is an amazing deal on GreenPan cookware. They’re made with non-stick ceramic so everything you cook slides right out of the pan.
“I’ve been using the GreenPan Padova Reserve 10-Piece Set for about 6 months and these pieces are a complete game changer,” shared one happy home cook. “I ordered this pan larger because the 2.8 quart size included in the set just wasn’t big enough for my family of 6. This is the perfect size and it’s gorgeous as expected! I used to cringe when I thought of cooking eggs ( and pretty much everything else!) because cleaning pans used to be such a nightmare… but not anymore. This is how cooking and cleaning should be!” After 6 months of use I have had no issues with food sticking and all my pieces still look brand new. I can’t recommend these products enough!
We love our furry friends, but if yours are wandering into rooms you’d rather they didn’t, perhaps a new dog gate at a discount is in order.
“This gate is MUCH sturdier than any other gate I’ve tried,” shared one happy dog owner. “I use this to keep my big dog out of the hallway, and he’s jumped on it countless times, but it won’t budge!”
Whether you love making candles and lip balm, or you just want cute containers for Valentine’s Day treats, these little tins are just as adorable as they get.
“These heart jars were perfect for what I was looking for,” shared one enthusiastic reviewer. “I was making lip glosses for Valentine’s Day party favors. They were the perfect size and fit my project well.”
If there are soda drinkers in your home, this can organizer can be a serious storage changer.
“Works for 12oz cans and can be stacked on top of each other or be 2 separate organizers,” reported one Five Star fan. “I use this in my fridge and it keeps it tidier than trying to stack them and it’s a great space saver. I’ve started using one in my pantry to hold 10.5oz cans of soup.”
Looking for a way to expand your closet without tearing down a wall? This freestanding bamboo (read: sturdy) coat rack is 30% off right now.
“I ordered two, along with a larger one to complement a 2-person closet in an unfinished basement,” shared a five-star fan. “I was able to fit 80 shirts for my boyfriend’s rack. I’ve put shirts and dresses on mine, but I’ve still had to fold longer dresses on hangers because it’s not very tall.”
Stirring, scraping and spreading is so much easier with silicone kitchen utensils. If you are hosting dinner parties, this set will definitely come in handy. Just ask one of over 2,500 five-star fans.
“I recently joined a food subscription service, so I’ve been cooking more than usual,” reported one enthusiastic reviewer. “I was using wooden utensils and they worked fine but when you scrape the pan it doesn’t get all over because it doesn’t sit flush with the pan and from me hitting the side of the pan with the wooden spoon the pan has started to chip. I like it how can you scoop it all up and it mixes so well.The best part is they clean up very easily with soap and warm water.
Temola meat thermometer
This bestselling meat thermometer features a large backlit digital display that automatically rotates for easy reading. A motion-sensing sleep/wake function saves batteries, while a three-second response time lets you get results soon.
$11 on Amazon
A meat thermometer isn’t just for grilling. Take the guesswork out of reheating leftovers, baking bread, or preparing your favorite everyday chicken dish.
“So easy to use, quick to read,” disappointed one five-star fan. “I’ve always been afraid of undercooked poultry, but I haven’t had dry chicken breasts since I bought it – Hallelujah! Wish I bought this years ago. Stores easily on the side of the fridge within easy reach of the stove.”
Perfect for small kitchens, this drainer saves counter space by using the sink to catch dripping water. Bonus: Rolls up for easy storage.
“Ooooh, I scored big for Valentine’s this year!” wrote a loving husband. “My wife loves it. She likes order in the kitchen and letting things dry on the counter is awful. This little baby is easy to store and unroll for use and allows you to keep all your dishes/pots/pans above the sink. It can be a good space saver by allowing you to use the area above the sink. Also works well as a cooling rack. So easy to use, yet so enabling.”
FEWOO food jar
This food jar has a 27 ounce capacity and is stainless steel with a vacuum seal to keep your lunch at just the right temperature.
$31 on Amazon
If you’re looking for ways to take a hot lunch with you when you travel, this insulated food jar is perfect for taking soup and casseroles. It is leak proof and comes with a bag.
“Keeps food hot!!” shared a happy customer. “Got this for my husband who works in construction and usually had to eat cold food for lunch. He loves it, now he can have hot food on cold winter days, this makes him so happy. Love the wide opening on the jar to add food and easy cleaning.”
This little heater is just the right size for a tabletop or tucked away under your desk to keep your feet warm all winter long.
“This little heater can shut it down! I have one in my home office and bought it for my step-grandmother when she was released from the hospital,” shared one happy shopper. “I love her so much and wanted her to stay warm on cold days. I really appreciate that if she were to tip over, it would automatically shut off. So as well as staying warm, she’s also safe.”
