If you find the price tag on the Vitamix 5200 a little steep even with the 49% markdown, then the Vitamix Explorian Professional Grade Blender is another great option you might want to try. The size and shape of the 64-ounce low profile container is ideal for blending large batches of food, be it for family meals or for entertaining guests. The laser-cut, aircraft-grade stainless steel blades are designed to handle even the toughest ingredients so you get the same quality results every time.

From making inspired smoothies to hearty soups, the possibilities could be endless with such a high-tech piece of equipment. With 10 variable speeds, plus a pulse feature, you are more than equipped to make frozen treats in seconds, grind nuts and coffee beans, mix batters, and create dips and dressings. Moms can appreciate the convenience of making after-school snacks or the control they have on what their newborn eats in making their homemade batch of baby food.

The Vitamix Explorian Professional Blender usually retails for $270 but it can be yours now for only $181 on Amazon.  This offer gets better with a complimentary cookbook to help you get started. Apart from blending, enjoy hassle-free cleaning as the lid and container are both dishwasher-safe but you can always stay on top of things with its self-cleaning function.  It is important to note that this is a certified reconditioned blender which means that the product has passed a full diagnostic and backed by the 90-day Amazon Renewed Guarantee.

Get a 12-Pack of AA rechargeable batteries for $13 for Prime Day
AmazonsBasics AA batteries being inserted into a game controller.

Prime Day deals provide the perfect opportunity to buy those pesky household items that you never want to spend money on. We are so close to a AA-battery-free world, but it just hasn't happened yet. Fortunately we have a rechargeable option, so we can spend less money and throw fewer batteries into landfills. Right now you can get a 12-pack of Amazon Basic rechargeable batteries for just $13 thanks to a 46% discount on Prime Day. This deal will likely only stick around for the two official days of the sale, so if your battery drawer is running low, grab these today.

Of course, there's not much I can tell you about batteries that you don't already know. These Amazon Basics brand AAs have 2,000 mAh storage capacity. That's lower than a traditional alkaline battery, but it's enough power to last for a good three to four hours of continuous use. Then the rechargeable factor comes in. You can recharge these batteries about 1,000 times before they die out. Think about how many batteries that will save you -- and how much money. Let's do some quick napkin math. 1,000 recharges... alkaline batteries cost around one third the price of a rechargeable... factor in the difference in storage capacity... It could be as much as $300 in savings over a single battery's lifetime. A lot less waste too.
