Anova Sous Vide Circulator
Save 35%Getting into sous vide requires a circulator, and for that there are two choices that most reviewers and customers lean toward — ChefSteps’ Joule and Anova’s Precision Cooker. Both have apps to control temperature on your smartphone (the Joule’s app is undeniably more robust, complete with hundreds of self-guided recipes and doneness guides), and the Joule is slightly more compact, but Anova’s circulator has buttons to control the device on the actual device, a feature lacking on the Joule.
Today the split decision goes the way of the Anova Precision cooker, which is 35 percent off at Best Buy today (and, for what it’s worth, Anova’s smaller Nano Precision Cooker is also on sale, albeit less so). — Will Price
Wolf Howard Valet Tray With Watch Roll
Save DEAL: A valet tray is a required piece of kit for every self-respecting guy, but if you’re also a watch lover with multiple timepieces, it’s tough to find a catch-all solution to store your keys, phone, and watches. One solution is the Howard Valet Tray With Roll from Wolf, which includes five storage compartments, a stationary watch cuff with two watch guards, a removable tray for cufflinks and USB charging and a small watch roll. The Howard has a pebbled leather exterior, ultrasuede lining, chrome-finished hardware and is available in navy or grey finishes. Oh, and right now, it’s available for only $90, a $70 savings from the list price of $160. — Oren Hartov
Save 25% Leatherman tools are revered for their beautiful design, long-lasting durability and high-quality performance. These multitools will help you face any challenge in the backcountry and in the office, too. Whether you need a pocket knife, a bottle opener or a serrated knife (ideally all in one streamlined device), Leatherman is the place to seek and find. — Meg Lappe
Bose QC20 Noise-Canceling In-Ear Headphones
Save $101: Even though there are a bunch of really good over-ear noise-canceling headphones – the Sony WH-1000XM3 being our new favorites, edging out the Bose QC35 II – there aren’t nearly as many good in-ear models. In fact, the Bose makes the two best noise-canceling in-ear headphones out there. There’s the Bose QC20s ($250, wired) and the Bose QC30s ($300, wireless). Both are fairly expensive, but you can get a pretty good deal on the wired models if you go on eBay right now. It’s selling the Bose QC20s for $149, which is over $100 less what Bose is currently selling them for.
Hestra Leather Gloves
Save 50%:Founded in 1936, Swedish brand Hestra makes some of the best leather gloves money can buy. Until recently, the brand was primarily known in North America as a producer of ski gloves, but it also produces a range of ready-to-wear, made-to-measure and bespoke gloves for everyday wear. The gloves are cut and sewn using traditional glove-making techniques which date back to 17th-century France.
Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can save 50 percent on a number of styles from the fourth-generation family-owned business. The gloves are cut from leathers like deerskin, hairsheep and sheepskin and features details like elasticized inner cuffs, full linings and hand-stitching. If you need a new pair of gloves for the winter months, don’t miss this sale — gloves are as little as $60. — John Zientek
