'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping.

The entire set is dishwasher and oven safe up to 500F as well as compatible with induction-top ranges. The stainless steel design not only gives this cookware set a modern look, it also ensures durability and resistance to staining.

Coffee lovers will appreciate this Breville Coffee and Espresso Maker that is now 40% off during Way Day. It has a built-in coffee grinder and can brew up to eight cups at once. But if you'd rather have espresso in the morning, it can also foam milk to get you the perfect cappuccino. This machine also has free two-day delivery so you can enjoy your espresso drinks ASAP. 

This cordless, rechargeable hand mixer from Cusinart is almost $200 off right now at Wayfair, and you'll need to hurry if you want one because a deal this good isn't going to last very long. The integrated, lithium-ion battery gives you up to 20 minutes of use on a full charge, which is plenty of time to mix cookie or bread dough, cake batter, or make the perfect bowl of whipped cream. An LED indicator light lets you know at-a-glance how much charge is left and when you'll need to plug in the hand mixer; and when it does come time to recharge, the included micro-USB cable plugs into any wall outlet. The mixer itself has 5 speeds, and the digital indicator lets you know which level you have selected. And if you need to replace the attachments or the entire mixer, you can take advantage of Cuisinart's 3 year manufacturer warranty.

Each table has a tempered glass top for easy cleaning as well as a small lower shelf for storing citronella candles and small decor items when you aren't using your patio furniture.

If you've been toying with the idea of installing a hot tub on your deck or patio, you'll want to take advantage of the huge discount Wayfair is offering on the Aquarest Spas 6-person model. You'll save over $1,350 and help the environment with the hot tub's 100 percent recycled outer shell.

The Oval Air 3-stage HEPA 5-in-1 air filter is over $250 off now on Wayfair. This air purifier is capable of moving up to 145 cubic feet of air per minute to clear 99.9 percent of dust, mold, smoke, and pet dander from your home. The H13 true HEPA filter traps particles as small as 0.1 microns and works with a charcoal filter system to even absorb volatile organic compounds like paint fumes and other odors. With an ozone-safe anion feature, you can choose to have the filter add negative ions to the air in your home to eliminate airborne bacteria and viruses. The Oval Air purifier lets you create run-time settings up to 8 hours to clean the air while you sleep, cook, or do chores and shut off while you're at work or running errands. It also has an LED indicator light that continuously displays air quality in real time: the light shows green for clean air, yellow for the presence of allergens and other particles, and red for when it's time to change the filter. The purifier comes in four different colors (silver, white, light brown wood grain, and dark brown wood grain) to blend into your decor or show off your personal style.

You can also check out our list of the best air purifiers available to compare the Oval Air HEPA air filter to other models before you buy.

If you've been thinking about renovating your kitchen, you can pick up the Kohler Vault farmhouse sink from Wayfair for over $620 off. With an all stainless steel construction, the double-sink configuration will give your kitchen an updated look while maintaining the classic design of a farmhouse sink. The two basins are 9 inches deep, giving you plenty of room to do everything from washing large pots and pans to thawing full-sized turkeys or rinsing vegetables and herbs from your garden. The sink mounts flush with your countertops, making it easy to wipe crumbs and spills into the basin for easy cleanup. And the seamless design makes it easy to wipe down the front apron to clean off soap and hard water stains, fingerprints, or food and drink spills.

What is Wayfair?

Wayfair is an online retail site similar to Amazon, though they are most well-known for their selection of indoor and outdoor furniture and home decor items. Unlike Amazon, Wayfair doesn't have any sort of membership program with perks like free shipping or exclusive deals, though they do offer free shipping for everyone on orders over $35 along with closeout and open-box deals.


What is Way Day?

Way Day is a 2-day sales event similar to Amazon's Prime Day. The biggest difference between the two sales events is that you don't need to be any sort of special member to take advantage of sale prices, discounts, or special offers. Wayfair's main event features steep discounts on grills, furniture, patio sets, cookware, etc.
