Kind of a Big Deal: May 18th
Today's best deals: Countertop brewers, handsaws, camping gear
Welcome to Kind of a Big Deal, a daily roundup of great sales on the brands and items you love (tech, shoes, style, travel, etc.), as well as great new products. Please note: Deals are subject to change at the whim of the merchants mentioned.
We’re fans of the PicoBrew, which is essentially a Keurig for brewing beer. But the new Pico U is basically (as the founders told us this week) “the Instant Pot of brewed beverages” — besides beer, it can brew coffee, tea, kombucha, health/energy drinks, horchata, rice/nut milks or pretty much any drink you can think of (sous vide is even a somewhat hidden option). Bonus: It takes far less space than the PicoBrew and costs less; during pre-orders, the deluxe Pico U starts at $189, about $70 off the future retail price.
This top-of-the-line camping gear (tents, sleeping bags, etc.) has won multiple awards for its extreme lightweight packability and roomy design. Now, it’s up to 25% off.
