Which Grill Should You Buy on Prime Day?

Grills will be a hot ticket item among this year’s Prime Day deals because the sales event falls smack dab in the middle of grilling season. Whether you’re a charcoal, gas, or pellet man, we’ve scoped out some great picks. These grills are priced great right now if you don’t want to wait until the deals kick in. However, we anticipate seeing a price dip for these grills on Prime Day, so keep them on your radar.

Char-Griller grills are known for their quality craftsmanship and durability. This Char-Griller 2137 Outlaw grill/smoker combo is currently at its all-time low price on Amazon at $159. So keep an eye out on Prime Day to see if the price goes even lower. This beast of a grill doesn’t have a lot of frills, just 1,063 square inches of cooking spaces. That’s enough to BBQ for a small army or a large extended family.

Cuisinart CGG-7400 Propane 4-Burner Gas Grill

If you prefer to taste the meat and not the heat this Prime Day, its Cuisinart CGG-7400 Propane 4-Burner Gas Grill is one to keep your eye on. Right now it’s at a great price of $275. Last Prime Day, this grill got down to around $250 dollars, but its all-time low on Amazon is $186. There’s no telling how low this grill will go, but chances are you can score this roaring-hot, four-burner propane grill from Cuisinart at a very low price. This grill is one of the most highly rated grills on Amazon and is labeled as an Amazon’s Choice product.

Camp Chef PG24MZG SmokePro Slide Smoker

If you are looking to spend a few more bucks this Prime Day to elevate your BBQ game, this Camp Cher PG24MZG SmokePro Slide Smoker is the way to go. Using Camp Chef’s PID digital temperature control system you can bring up the heat to 500 degrees for traditional, high-heat grilling. Or, if you want to do a long, low-and-slow smoke you can bring down the heat to 175 degrees and monitor your meat’s internal temperature with one of two digital meat probes. You can also control the level of smoke on a scale of 1-10.

This grill is currently $599 and is definitely a large chunk of change to pay for a grill, but it’s worth it in the long run. Last Prime Day this grill got down to around $575. Historically, the lowest price Amazon customers have seen this grill go is $526. So keep this grill on your radar this Prime Day for an anticipated $25-$75 savings range.

Nespresso Vertuo Coffee Machine Drops to $100 for Prime Day
nespresso vertuo coffee machine deal prime day 2020 maker

In one of the deeper discounts we've seen among our Prime Day deals, the Nespresso Vertuo Coffee and Espresso Machine by De'Longhi drops from a retail price of $230 to just $100 for Prime Day at Amazon and of course it ships free. That's a 57% discount, which is rare for this machine. We saw it for half off in June, and there have been 30% and 40% discounts scattered throughout the year, but this is the lowest price we've seen all year. To snag this unusual $130 in savings, we suggest acting quickly. At the $100 price point, this Nespresso machine would make an ideal holiday gift (and there's nothing wrong with buying one for yourself as well).

The Nespresso Vertuo Machine was designed to be used with Nespresso capsules, which either make coffee or espresso. It's simple: Just insert the capsule and close the lever. The best part? You get 30 of those capsules included free with your purchase, so you can try three of Nespresso's most popular blends: Stormio, Odacio, and Melozio. That's in addition to the 12-capsule starter pack that comes with the machine. And Nespresso provides several options for recycling the pods as well, so you don't have to feel guilty about your impact on the environment.

The Nespresso Vertuo Machine makes three coffee cup sizes and two espresso cup sizes. What's more, the Vertuo reads the barcode on the capsule and adjusts its brewing settings accordingly, so you won't need to tinker with the settings. And with the large 54-ounce water reservoir and 17-capsule container capacity, you don't have to worry about tending to the machine too often. But it's mostly the quality of the coffee that garnered such rave reviews on Amazon, with customers citing great taste, a layer of crema foam, and quick results. More than 3,500 customer reviewers rated this machine an average of 4.6/5 stars.

Fresh Memorial Day Cocktails to Help You Celebrate this Weekend
Nolet’s Silver Carrot and Pineapple Punch

When most people think of Memorial Day, images of barbecues, closed offices, and fun probably come to mind — but Memorial Day is much more than that. The real reason most of us have the day off is to honor the brave men and women who busted their asses and sacrificed their lives in order to provide a safe, free country for the rest of us.

This Memorial Day, one way you can show your respect is by ditching the cheap beer and raising something worthy of those that already gave so much so that you didn't have to. Before you mix up anything though, why not make a smart decision before any alcohol is involved and donate to a charity such as Thanks USA or the Folds of Honor, which helps the families of fallen soldiers?
