You can start your Thanksgiving prep early by snagging a variation on one of our favorite roasting pans at a deep discount, for instance, or nab a popular 23andMe ancestry test for a loved one (or yourself!). Ahead, check out the five best Amazon deals up for grabs this weekend.
1. A 10% markdown: The 23andMe DNA test
Last holiday season, DNA kits were an über-popular gift for friends and family, and this year is guaranteed to be the same. While we’ve yet to try the 23andMe test, it has a collective 4.6-star rating from nearly 10,000 Amazon shoppers, who were thrilled with the information they received about their cultural background. Buyers also raved about how easy the process was. Here’s how it works: After providing a saliva sample and sending it off to the company, your results will be returned within two to three weeks. From there, you’ll get more than 80 personalized reports, consisting of your ancestry details and composition, an outline of your genetic makeup and a rundown on how and when your ancestors traveled and settled. Additionally, there’s a DNA relative finder and an automatic family tree builder (though you can turn those features off if you’d prefer). Once $99, you can snag this super-interesting kit for its Prime Day price of $89, giving you $10 in savings.

2. $80 off: One of our favorite affordable soundbars
When it comes to technology, we here at Reviewed are pretty familiar with the ins and outs of electronics. In fact, we’ve tested a ton of soundbars in our day, and one of our all-time favorites, the Polk Audio Signa S2. In fact, it’s our No.1 pick for soundbars priced at less than $200. Once $229, it’s now $149 for an $80 discount. In testing, there was a lot to love about this device, especially for its impressively low price point. We found that it had excellent bass presence and a flexible feature set that includes easy Bluetooth connectivity and smart audio modes (night, movie or music) that made the sound crisp and clear. We also noted that it’s made from durable materials, so it’ll last in the long-run, too.

3. More than half-off: A variation on one of our top roasting pan picks
Ready or not, the holidays are slowly beginning to creep up on us. If you’re one to use the festive season as an opportunity to cook and bake to your heart’s content, we highly recommend nabbing the All-Clad E7649764 hard anodized nonstick roaster, normally $150, now $69.95. All-Clad cookware is notorious for making great quality cookware—particularly in the roasting pan department. When testing the similar All-Clad stainless steel E752C264 roaster ($179.95), we found it to be pretty impressive. The tri-ply stainless construction provided a grade-A performance, which was particularly helpful for heat conductivity and durability, thanks to the stainless steel linings. We also loved the flat handles located on either side that helped with lifting this pan. It even made an excellent gravy!
This more affordable option has a nonstick anodized interior, which helps with even heating, along with an anti-warp base that will keep the pan in its intended shape. While we haven’t tried it, it has a 4.7-star rating from customers who were impressed with its top-notch roasting abilities and easy-to-clean interior.
4. Less than $15: This Reviewed-approved essential oil diffuser
As our former best overall oil diffuser (the Airomé serenity medium diffuser, $29.74, recently took its place), this InnoGear essential oil diffuser is still a great option—especially since it’s currently on sale. It typically retails for $14.99 but you can save $3 by clicking on the coupon located beneath the price to drop the cost down to $11.99. It’s the cheapest option we’ve tested so far, so it’s a great for those interested in aromatherapy who aren’t exactly sold yet. We were happy with its unique features, like the built-in measuring cup and LED lights, and liked that the base automatically locked for spill-free transportation from room to room.

5. Down 20%: This too-cute mini doughnut maker
Dash is an awesome brand for small kitchen appliances, and right now, you can nab its mini doughnut maker, once $24.99, on sale for $19.99. Although we haven’t tried this device out yet, we love Dash’s mini waffle maker and web-famous rapid egg cooker. This best-selling model has a 4.4-star rating from more than 700 customers, who were happy with how easy to use and clean it is. The nonstick surface has seven rings ready for batter, and the exterior indicator light will let you know when your doughnuts are finished cooking. There’s even an automatic shut-off feature in case things get a little too chaotic in the kitchen.
