Fujifilm Instax Mini Link 2 Instant Photo Printer

What we like: Our top pick for best instant photo printer. Ultra-portable and compact. Quickly delivers vibrant, credit-card-sized, film-like prints. Easy to set up and use with an intuitive app.

Other things to know: Printer body feels fragile. Prints take four to six minutes to fully develop and may lack fine detail and clarity. Uses the same film packs as Fujifilm’s Instax cameras. Recurring deal price, but has yet to drop lower.

Oral-B Pro 1000 Electric Toothbrush

What we like: Our top pick for the best electric toothbrush. Has a two-minute timer with handy quadrant pacing and compatibility with the largest range of widely available replacement brush heads. Also has a pressure sensor and a long-lasting battery.

Other things to know: Compatible with the largest range of replacement heads. Oscillating brushing motion. Louder than others. Only the black color is down to $30 in the new design, while the old design is available in either color with a free my Best Buy membership or store pickup.

Frigidaire FCFG3083AS Slide-In Gas Range

What we like: Our budget pick for the best slide-in gas range. A fine stove with good reviews at a more affordable price. 18,000 Btu power burner. Continuous grates. 5.1-cubic-foot oven is plenty big for almost any task. Updated with a convection oven in late 2022.

Other things to know: No number input pad. Power burner is a little weaker than usual. Build quality also feels a bit flimsier than most we looked at. Deal price does not include parts and installation, which will vary by location.

Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer Pro

What we like: Our pick for the best air fryer toaster oven. Performs just as well as an air fryer as it does a toaster oven. Specific settings for dehydrating, proofing, and slow cooking. Crisps up food faster than traditional toaster ovens. Large two-rack capacity. Multiple fan speeds.

Other things to know: Lacks a touchscreen. Much shorter battery life than our top pick. In tracking road runs, it’s not quite as accurate as our top pick. One-year warranty.

Razer Basilisk V3 Gaming Mouse

What we like: Our top pick for the best gaming mouse. Comfortable for most hand sizes and grip types. Plenty of well-placed, responsive buttons. Customizable RGB underglow lighting. Optical switches avoid the double-click issue mechanical switches can have.

Other things to know: Buttons are easy to press on purpose and hard to click by accident. Ability to toggle between ratcheted and smooth scrolling. Razer’s Synapse 3 software doesn’t work on macOS. Textured plastic can feel cheap to some.

Deal price for the stainless steel finish does not include parts and installation which is different depending on location.
