If you can get past the pages and pages of TV and tablet ads, you'll see that retailers are cooking up some seriously great home deals this year. We've scoured the Black Friday ads from top to bottom to bring you the appliances, gadgets, and kitchenware deals that are set to save you the most money. Read on for our favorite Black Friday home ads.

  • 2nd-Gen Nest Learning Thermostat for $199.99 at Best Buy
    The ultimate home-warming gift for techies is about to see a serious price drop. Best Buy's Black Friday price blows past our $220 prediction for the Nest Thermostat, bringing this in-demand gadget to the lowest price we've ever seen by $24. (For further comparison, we saw it bundled with a $50 Apple gift card for $250 on Black Friday last year.)
  • Dyson DC33 Multi-Floor Bagless Upright Vacuum for $199 at Walmart
    Somewhere, a Dyson fan just fainted. We predicted that new Dysons would start at around $250, and this 6 pm doorbuster demolishes that price by $51. Furthermore, this price is $40 below our previous all-time low for a new unit.
  • 4-Burner Gas Grill with Side Burner for $99 at Walmart
    Although the summer months typically see better grill sales than Black Friday, this gas grill is a steal. At $99, it'll be tied with a May deal as the cheapest 4-burner gas grill we've seen in the past two years. Better still, this 6 pm doorbuster beats the next cheapest Black Friday gas grillby $61.
  • Rachel Ray 15-Piece Porcelain Enamel Nonstick Cookware Set for $89 at Walmart
    Cookware sets are an excellent buy on Black Friday, and this one is no exception. We haven't even seen a Rachel Ray porcelain enamel set this large since last Black Friday; in October, we saw a 12-piece set that cost $11 more than this 6 pm doorbuster. Better yet, this deal beats similar offers at JCPenneyKmart, and Meijer.
  • Crock-Pot 4-Quart Slow Cooker for $7.99 at Kohl's
    Seeing a Crock-Pot fall to a single-digit price point just reminds us how much we love Black Friday. We regularly see these slow cookers go for $20 or more, so $8 is just spectacular. Furthermore, this will become the cheapest Crock-Pot of any size that we've ever seen, period.
  • Rival Hand/Stand Mixer for $15 at Walmart
    Admittedly, if you've got your heart set on a top-tier KitchenAid stand mixer, this one from Rival won't impress you. For everyone else, this 6 pm doorbuster is absurdly awesome. The next cheapest mixer deal you'll see on Black Friday costs $10 more, and this price beats our previous all-time low for any stand mixer by $14.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”

If you’re looking for bran muffin journalism, you can subscribe to the Monitor for $15. You’ll get the Monitor Weekly magazine, the Monitor Daily email, and unlimited access to CSMonitor.com.
