Where are my weekend warriors at? I’m not talking about re-roofing the house (who does that?). No, I’m talking about making mountains of delicious food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. That’s how I weekend, and right now Best Buy has two very useful kitchen appliances on major discount—a Bella Pro Series flip Belgian waffle maker and an Insignia 2.6-quart rice cooker—that’ll help kick those weekend vibes into high gear.

Let’s start with the waffle maker, also known as the easiest way to make kids smile on Saturday morning (well, that and giving them free rein with the iPad). The Bella Pro Series flip waffle maker is down under $20 (from its original $50). It’s super simple and safe to use so the kids can help.

Then there’s this nifty Insignia 2.6 rice cooker. Rice is low key one of the hardest things to get exactly right—precise measurements and timing and what-not—but a rice cooker takes the guesswork out of the equation and this particular model won’t steal very much cupboard or countertop space from the rest of your appliance arsenal.
