Wowzers! This GE smart smoker can be used indoors and it’s $300 off
GE Profile smart indoor smoker

Prime Day is here, and retailers are flooding with deals. This year is a great event for people who love cooking or grilling because there are so many incredible deals. For example, there are a ton of Pit Boss Prime Day deals, a deal on a smart meat thermometer, and this next one, which, just, wow. The GE Profile is a smart indoor smoker. Yes, you read that correctly. It can be used indoors. It uses active smoke filtration to turn real-wood smoke into warm air that won't smoke out your kitchen. Precise controls, efficient wood pellet usage, a built-in temperature probe, and connected controls are some of the features you can expect. Here's the best part: It's on sale for $699 during Prime Day, which is $300 off the regular price of $999. Be right back. It's time to get smoking.

Here's why you should consider the GE Profile smart indoor smoker
If you love smoked meats but have been waiting for a suitable system for your home, this might be your sign. Usually, you have to use a smoker outdoors, which means you'll need room in your yard or patio. The downside is that you also have to spend a lot of time waiting while the meat smokes. The GE Profile changes all that by bringing everything safely indoors. You can smoke right in your kitchen. Hallelujah. We're pretty excited about it, if you can't tell.

MEATER Block WiFi smart thermometer prime day deal on grill shelf

Grilling is an art form. Every protein you prep and cook requires a different approach. So, it's easy to understand why a guided cooking system might come in handy. That is what the MEATER Block 4-probe WiFi smart meat thermometer offers. It's a wireless-enabled set of probes to help you monitor the internal meat temperature and ambient temperature while cooking. You can also take advantage of a built-in step-by-step guided cooking system using custom alerts and notifications that help you get the perfect grill, roast, or sear every time. It syncs with your phone and an app but get this: you don't need your phone if you don't want to use it, thanks to a standalone mode. For Prime Day, the MEATER Block is 33% off -- instead of $300, you pay $200. Yes, please. It's a fantastic offer to go along with the Prime Day Pit Boss deals if you're planning to grab a grill today.

What can the MEATER Block do for your cooks
It's an excellent grilling companion, but you can also use the MEATER Block in the kitchen, oven, smoker, rotisserie, and more. The probes are dishwasher-safe, too, so you can easily clean them when you're all done. Moreover, there are several ways to configure, connect, and review stats. With a MEATER Cloud account, you can keep an eye on your temps while on the go, from your phone, Apple Watch, via Amazon Alexa or even a web browser. That will be great when you're doing long smokes and need to maintain optimal temperatures.

Invite-only deal: The SodaStream Enso sparkling water maker is $100 off
SodaStream Enso sparkling water maker on table

Wouldn't it be great to make sparkling water at home anytime? SodaStream's carbonation systems offer precisely that. In particular, the SodaStream Enso is a wonderful system that allows you to make sparkling water in a dishwasher-safe reusable carbonating bottle. Of course, on a usual day, you'd pay $250 for that convenience; however, thanks to an Invite-Only Prime Deal, that price is discounted by $100 -- down to $150. You’re probably wondering why we’re sharing it early. Well, that’s because it’s an invitation-only Prime deal. What does that mean? You have to request an invite on the store page, and on the appropriate dates, you’ll receive an email with an option to buy. If you like what you see, request that invite because not everyone will get one.

How does the “invite-only” Prime deal process work?
The deal in question will be available for a limited time, though we won’t know how long until Amazon starts sending out the exclusive invites. You must be an active Prime Member to take advantage of this offer, so keep that in mind. We have the deal info, so we know how much the SodaStream Enso sparkling water maker will cost — it’s $100 off down to $150 instead of the regular $250.
