    Promising review: "Great slow cooker that can be your best tangible friend in the kitchen! I made beef stew in it after purchasing and washing the stoneware and lid, and after 8 hours on low, the beef cubes would melt in your mouth! I will be using it over and over again!"—Target customer

    Price: $34.99 (originally $39.99)

    2. A mini waffle maker because if there is anything better than a normal-sized waffle, it's a teeny waffle! Plus you can eat copious amounts and it's okay because they're smaller! This is my logic and I'm sticking to it.
