    STILL AVAILABLE: Tempered Glass Lazy Susan for $14.99

    This glass Lazy Susan is still available at the same price....fantastic idea for the Seder foods if you've got a bunch of people coming over.


    After using one of these at a friend's house, I've been looking for one of these for months now, and I was so pleasantly surprised at the price here.

These things are fantastic if you routinely host largish meals around a smallish table (i.e. Shabbos meals).  You can put a bunch of small dishes on here and rather than have to pass them, guests can just swivel the top.  It's also very dramatic-looking when it. holds candles, flowers, centerpieces, etc.  And the price is definitely right on this one.  I picked up one for now, one for Pesach (perfect for the Seder).  Because it's glass, it will pretty much coordinate with any style tableware, modern, traditional, etc.


    • 12-inch tempered glass lazy Susan for entertaining guests in style.
    • Turntable rotates 360 degrees in any direction.
    • Aluminum core for smooth swiveling.

    Wow! Nordstrom: 100% cashmere sweaters at 50% off, $39.90 with free shipping, free returns, tons of colors


    I can't believe the markdown on this.  Nordstrom has got this Halogen v-neck 100% cashmere sweater (originally $79.00) for $39.90 with free shipping and free returns.  I confirmed with my contact at Nordstrom that this was not a pricing error. This style comes in two colors, sizes x-small through x-large. 

    <

     If those two colors aren't your taste, no worries, because there's also this style, very similar to the one above, 100% cashmere Halogen v-neck sweater, also for $39.90. Since this offer is new, it's still available in all 7 colors, in sizes x-small through x-large, but these will sell out fast.



    Nordstrom sales are a great source for designer clothing in high-quality fabrics and cuts for incredible prices.  And since all shipping and all returns are free sitewide at Nordstrom, you can purchase risk-free and worry-free.

    Nordstrom also has 100% cashmere sweaters in plus sizes on clearance over here and over here for $44.49 with free shipping and returns.

    This is probably one of the best designer buys for Nordstrom that I've ever posted!



    Price drop + $10.00 coupon = LOWEST PRICE on highly-rated Hamilton Beach 8 quart slow cooker, $24.87!!


    UPDATE:  That $10.00 instant coupon maxed out on the number of uses has expired.

    Wow! This Hamilton Beach black 8-quart slow cooker just dropped to its lowest Amazon price ever, $34.87, but there is also a high-value $10.00 Amazon instant coupon on it, dropping it ever further to $24.87 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  This slow cooker is huge:  8 quarts, which makes a lot of chulent.  We are thinking of getting this for Pesach and then using it for during the year, for those times when we have a lot of company, or just when I want to make a giant batch of soup for freezing, or I want to slow-cook a roast or a large chicken, etc..  I can't see the price getting any better than this.

    This slow cooker got stellar reviews, 4.4 out of 5 stars over 401 customer reviews (and of those 401 reviews, 355, or 89% gave this item 4 or 5 stars). 

    (Make sure you choose the black color and the Amazon packaging, as the other options are priced higher and don't have the coupon.)
    • Perfect for large meals
    • Perfect size for a 6 lbs. roast or 8 lbs. chicken

    Savion Passover salad dressing for $2.69 per bottle


    KFP (kosher for Passover) salad dressings are usually, well, kind of awful.  The only brand that has come out with a KFP salad dressing that actually tastes really good is Savion (they seem to use much better ingredients than the other brands).  It's basically the only KFP brand that I can imagine eating even during the year.  I've been looking for this salad dressing online but haven't found any deals that are reasonably priced, until this one, which just popped up on my Amazon Alerts:

    Amazon has got a 6-count pack of Savion KFP Zesty Garlic Salad Dressing for $16.14 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  That works out to $2.69 per 8 oz. bottle, shipped.

    Highly-rated Presto 6-quart stainless steel pressure cooker for $45.99



    Two cooking challenges that the Seders represent:  1) the widespread minhag (custom) not to eat roasted meat or poultry on Seder night and 2) not being able to prepare for the second Seder until an hour after sundown on the second night. The first challenge requires most people to get creative for their Seder menu selections and the second one forces most people to cook  in advance, so on second Seder night, you are just re-heating your meal to get it ready in time.

    I have several friends who overcome both of these challenges with a pressure cooker.  My friend Minna says she can cook a 5 lb. brisket in under 40 minutes, and the meat is tender, moist and incredibly delicious. So for second seder night, she just puts in the roast when they drink the first cup for Kadesh, and by the time they are up to Shulchan Aruch, the meat is perfectly cooked.  No advance cooking necessary. She also makes chicken in the pressure cooker and apparently it comes out so tender, the meat practically falls off the bone.

    I've been tempted to buy a pressure cooker for Pesach but I tend to be fairly incompetent in the kitchen and I've always been afraid that if I use a pressure cooker, I'll blow up my house.

    Amazon has got this 6 quart stainless steel Presto pressure cooker for $45.99 with free shipping.  It got 4.5 out of 5 stars over 1,467 customer reviews. I read many of the reviews, and apparently, you don't need to be Julia Child to use it efficiently, and it has a failsafe lock that prevents you from opening it before the pressure vents out. It's stainless with a tri-clad flat bottom, so it cooks on all cooking surfaces, including induction stoves.  I think I just might need to dive in on this one this year.

    Melissa & Doug: The Passover Box of Questions, $9.99


    This was a top seller toy in the past few years.  Melissa & Doug have got an interesting Pesach game out for kids:  The Passover Box of Questions; Cards to Create Great Conversations.  We don't have kids, but all of our friends do, and we are always on the lookout for fun games and toys to keep in the house for when we entertain.  The price is certainly right on this one, just $9.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping

    What I like about this game is how the questions seem so open-ended.  Different personality types/ages of kids could take these questions in very different directions.

    According to the reviews posted, there are several questions here that are more geared for non-Shomer Shabbos or more secular families (like "Do you refrain from eating bread on Passover?"), so more observant families might want to glean these out first.  Most of the questions just seem to be thought-provoking.  I think that when it comes to Pesach, kids are so focused on task-specific learning, like memorizing the ten plagues and the Mah Nishtana.  These questions seem to be geared at opening up the floor a little, which is a good thing. :)

    Because this is a Melissa & Doug toy, the quality is high.  The questions are printed on heavy-duty card stock, and each one is designed to look like a little mini-matzoh.  Cute!
