Let There Be Grillight: Grilling Tools With Built-In LED Flashlights

According to the Book of Genesis, God took six days to create the universe. Six days of hard work, and then, presumably, an eternal vacation. You’d think God would get bored after a while, maybe pick up a few pet projects. That light thing was especially cool — He or She should develop that some more.

Enter the prophets behind the Grillight — a series of grilling tools that have LED flashlights built into them. These tools can provide bright, precise, and efficient lighting while you grill, and we have seen that they are good.

Whether you’re grilling at night or on a particularly dark and cavernous grill, these heavy-duty stainless steel tools will help shed some hands-free light on the situation. No longer do you have to hold your spatula in one hand and your flashlight in the other, like a TV cop securing a dark and hostile environment. Well, you still can if you want, because it’s kind of awesome.

apronThe lights are extra special because they use technology called Ideal Illumination. Rather than emit a harsh blue light, like most LED lights you’ve seen, these LEDs emit a white light reminiscent of the afternoon sun. The Grillight tools are also 100% waterproof; you can even throw these puppies in the dishwasher, provided you remove the AA-battery-powered flashlight via the quick-release button.

Whether you believe the Grillight to be inspired by God or the ultimate achievement of eons of evolution and innovation, there’s at least one thing you can accept: it’s an excellent idea. Grillight is currently selling LED spatulas, wide-head fish spatulas, grilling forks, tongs, and brushes.

The Grillight Spatula is available at Grillight’s website for $24.95. The Grillight Gift Set is available for $79.95.

Should You Shop the Memorial Day Sales or Wait Until Prime Day?
best memorial day sales deals 2021

While the official first day of summer isn't until June 20, for many people, this coming Memorial Day weekend marks the start of the season. And with the BBQs and celebrations also come the Memorial Day sales, and in fact, we’ve already started seeing plenty of them. But you might have heard about another big sale looming on the horizon -- Amazon’s Prime Day extravaganza -- and wondered which are better, Memorial Day deals or Prime Day deals. The answer is a definitive “it depends.”
What to Buy on Prime Day
It depends on what you want to buy. For example, although there have already been some great Memorial Day tech deals typically you are going to find better deals on laptops, TVs, headphones, smartphones, and tablets on Prime Day, especially if you are looking to purchase any of Amazon's own tech products, such as Fire TV Sticks, Kindle e-readers, Fire tablets, Echo smart speakers, and Alexa smart home devices. Similarly, Prime Day wins when it comes to savings on small appliances like blenders, coffee makers, and vacuum cleaners. So if you've been thinking about getting a new Instant Pot or have a Ninja Foodi appliance on your shopping list, you might want to put off purchasing one until Prime Day, which isn't just one day but several days whose exact dates have yet to be revealed, but we think we know when it might be.
What to Buy on Memorial Day
However, there are some items definitely worth getting on sale over the three-day weekend. Particularly when it comes to many larger purchases, Memorial Day is prime (pun intended) shopping season. This weekend, you can expect to see some of the best deals of the year on furniture, mattresses, and large appliances like refrigerators, microwaves, and washers and dryers. This weekend is also, perhaps unsurprisingly, the best time to buy a new air conditioner, which is not something you want to be without once the summer heat really kicks in. Of course, there will also be sales on everything from clothing to camping gear -- many of them with buy-worthy prices -- but the biggest savings this weekend will be on the big items.
