Prepworks by Progressive Magnetic Measuring Spoons

The Prepworks by Progressive Magnetic Measuring Spoons are an also great pick in our review of the best measuring spoons. Sarah Zorn and Marguerite Preston wrote, “Double-ended spoons allow you to measure the same quantity of two different ingredients without stopping to rinse. And a magnet is embedded in each handle, making these spoons easy to separate and to store. But they’re not as durable as a heftier, 100 percent stainless steel set.”

Street price: $15. This is a nice drop on these recommended measuring spoons.

Tuft & Needle Mattress

The Tuft & Needle Mattress is our foam mattress pick in our guide to the best mattresses for back pain. Senior Staff Writer Joanne Chen wrote, “The Tuft & Needle isn’t made with memory foam, so it doesn’t hug every contour. It has a soft top but a firm under layer, so you should feel supported but cushioned at the same time.”

We recommend the $100 App Store & iTunes Gift Card in our guide to the best Black Friday Apple deals. Associate Staff Writer Elissa Sanci wrote, “Considering that we recommend quite a few iOS devices in our guides, App Store and iTunes credit is a nice option that allows you to get the most out of those devices.

Apple Homepod

We discuss this speaker’s pros and cons in our review of the Apple HomePod. Wirecutter Editor Jon Chase wrote, “Apple’s HomePod is the best-sounding wireless smart speaker available, and you can control it by voice using Apple’s virtual assistant, Siri. But the HomePod is worth considering only if you’re an iPhone owner and a subscriber to Apple Music (or are willing to be)—don’t buy it if you want to keep streaming Spotify.”
