Amazon device sale: deals from $24 @ Amazon
Amazon is offering a free Sengled Smart Bulb with select Echo devices. After discount, deals start from $24. We recommend the Echo Dot with Clock w/ Bulb for $39 (pictured) as it packs Alexa functionality and a great speaker into a compact shell. The addition of the LED clock display makes it our favorite Alexa speaker. We also love the built-in Eero WiFi extender and the room temperature sensor. If you're an Alexa newbie or want to update an older Echo, the Echo Dot with Clock is the best smart speaker and best smart home device you can buy.

It has stainless steel blades to ensure even and uniform grounds every time. Plus, there's a lid-activated safety so the blades only spin when the lid is secure.
