Stoves and ranges aren't an inexpensive investment—but they're a lot more affordable on Memorial Day.

Cooking your favorite meals after a long day’s work can feel like a chore, especially if you’re stuck with decades-old equipment. A good stove can help eliminate your culinary pain points, and lucky for you, we’ve tested all kinds of options, including electric ranges, gas ranges, and even all sorts of wall ovens.

The Electrolux EI30EF45QS electric range, for instance, is one we consider to be the best of the best. It’s also heavily discounted right now, falling by more than $500 from $2,747.63 to $2,198.10 at Appliances Connection. We liked the sleek design on this versatile cooktop and its five available burners, which cover a wide variety of temperature ranges (85 degrees Fahrenheit to 770 degrees Fahrenheit). We were able to roast a delectable, juicy pork loin in the oven, but we did have some issues getting an evenly baked plate of cookies. That said, there’s a number of different cooking presets to choose from, including bake, broil, preheat and even slow-cook. That means whether you’re warming up a meal or preparing a pot roast dinner, this stove should handle it all.

The Samsung NE59J7850WS electric range—one of our all-time favorite electric range options—is also up for grabs at a marked-down price at Samsung right now. Once $1,799, it’s now discounted down to $1,399 for a $500 discount. In testing, we liked that this 5.9-cubic foot oven has a split cavity, allowing for dual convection technology. That means you can cook meals at two different temperatures at once, making it a particularly handy range for big holiday feasts. We also noted that it did a good job of reaching searing heats and simmering lows, offering a great deal of adaptability.

The smell of fresh laundry feels like bliss, and with these Memorial Day washer and dryer deals, you’ll be able to truly enjoy it. Whether you’re looking for a solo machine or even a useful bundled washer and dryer set, a number of our favorite models are seeing big discounts right now.

One of our favorite top-load washers, for instance, the Samsung WA50R5400, is on sale in the white hue, having dropped by $80 from $809.99 to $729 at Samsung. This sleek machine is super functional: During testing, both the heavy-duty and normal cycles had a strong stain removal performance. In addition, we liked the multiple speed options, which include a 55-minute regular run and a 36-minute super-speed option that's perfect for when you’re in a rush. There’s also a built-in faucet, which we used to pretreat stains, making our laundry routine faster and more efficient. The look of this machine is great, too, with its modern, round-edge design and easy-open and soft-close lid, this is a more-than-decent laundry appliance you’ll want to add to your home.

Your washing machine set-up won't be complete without the perfect dryer.

A good washer needs an equally good drying companion to make all your laundry dreams come true. The Samsung DVE45R6100 electric dryer, for instance, is on sale at Samsung from $699, down $200 from its retail price of $899. Featured in our roundup of the best dryers, we absolutely loved this model, noting that there were barely any cons to its performance. We adored its incredible normal cycle, which boasted a solid time of 51 minutes and an amazing 100% drying rate. It’s also seriously gorgeous, and is up for grabs in three gorgeous finishes: white, champagne and platinum.

From counter-depth or French-doored, you can save on an awesome refrigerator right now.

We’ve tested all kinds of refrigerators here in our labs. Be they French-door or top-freezer designs, these investment pieces come in all different kinds—and we’ve found the best of the best. While these luxury appliances certainly don’t come cheap, they’re still far more affordable during Memorial Day blowouts.

Our favorite side-by-side refrigerator for instance, the LG LSXS26366S, is currently down from $1,799.99 to $1,595 at Appliances Connection, saving you $204.99. This high-quality machine boasts a unique three-door design (yes, three!) that allows you to keep frequently-used items separate from other items in the fridge so that their temperatures can be maintained when you’re pulling out the high-traffic items. During our temperature tests, the chill within the fresh food compartment stayed consistent as well, varying no more than 0.2 degrees and staying well below 40 degrees (ideal safe refrigeration temps is at or below 40 degrees Fahrenheit). The freezer also showed similar results, with the temperature only varying by 0.4 degrees. You’ll also love the contemporary, stainless-steel design on this fridge, which will give your kitchen the modern look and feel it deserves.

If you’re looking for a top-freezer refrigerator, the Samsung RT18M6215SG, which was ranked as the most versatile pick in our roundup of the best top-freezer refrigerators, is currently available from as low as $764, offering you up to $95 in savings. We liked its modern, fingerprint-resistant design that made this appliance very attractive to use. Our top favorite feature though, was the innovative freezer. You can leave it as is, or, with the touch of a few buttons, transform it into a “secondary refrigerator zone.” This pick also lowered energy costs, with our tests showing that it would only require $22 to run all year. If you’re in need of a budget pick that can function in your garage, small kitchen space or vacation home, this is the cooling machine for you.

Window and portable AC units are on sale just in time for summer.

Memorial Day marks the unofficial start to summer—and if you’re expecting hot weather, you’ll definitely want to get a jump start on buying an air conditioner. Luckily, there are tons of awesome options on sale for the holiday, including several that we’ve featured in our roundups of the best window air conditioners and the best portable air conditioners.

One of our favorites? This Whynter ARC-14S portable air conditioner, once $620 and now on sale for $520.71 at Wayfair, saving you nearly $100. In testing, we had a lot of good things to say about this model: It was able to sufficiently cool down a room in around 20 minutes, and it’s made from more eco-friendly parts than your typical portable AC unit. (Its refrigerant is chlorofluorocarbon-free [CFC] and it doesn’t use any lead, which is a big deal, considering ACs aren’t always the most environmentally-friendly appliances.)

A new dishwasher can seriously improve your day-to-day routine.

Here at Reviewed, we’ve tested out just about every type of dishwasher you can think of, ranging from portable and countertop models to more high-end third-rack options. This Memorial Day, appliance hotspots such as Best Buy, Wayfair and more have plenty of stellar price drops on them all.

If your kitchen space is limited and you’re on the hunt for something compact, you can grab the GE GPT225SSLSS portable 24-inch dishwasher at The Home Depot for $598, falling $161 from $759. This GE option is our all-time favorite portable dishwasher: From its awesome cleaning performance to its helpful ability to dry your dishes, we absolutely adored this model. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing (its interior and exterior are stainless steel!), it’s also convertible and comes with detachable wheels should you want to move it around your space.

The Samsung DW80R2031, for instance, is an awesome dishwasher that we featured in our roundup of the best affordable models. We consider it an effective option that won’t hurt your wallet, thanks to its useful features, such as the stemware holders in the upper rack, the automatic leak sensor and the heated dry option. We also noted that it did a good job of removing baked-on stains—and, right now, you can head to Appliances Connection to snag it for $476, down $53 from its original price of $529.
