With fall painting its regal colors on leaves, we've entered a season of change: from frozen lattes to hot ones, from shorts and tees to jeans and sweaters. And if we don't add a little indoor cocooning to that list, we'd be amiss.
The joys of puttering around in the kitchen on a brisk fall Saturday morning will become more joyous with the addition of a few new tools from the culinary arsenal. So here we come, faster than a Galloping Gourmet, more powerful than Julia Child belting out one of those trademark falsetto yelps, more useful than a wall of antique spoons, with deals aplenty to make sure your kitchen time really cooks.

George Foreman Slide Temperature Nonstick Grill
Price: $24.88 with free shipping
Lowest By: $3
Is It Worth It?: It's strange to think that more people probably know George Foreman for his grills than his heavyweight boxing championship. Maybe that's because his products are knockouts, and this grill features an 80-square-inch cooking surface, variable temperature slide control, and dishwasher-safe drip tray and spatula. And, while it's only a low by $3, most other merchants charge a full $38 more.
