Beauty meets durability with the Le Creuset sauteuse — now an incredible $150 off. (Mother's Day is coming ... hint, hint.) Prepare and present sauces, stews and one-dish wonders in this gorgeous piece. A cross between a Dutch oven and a sauté pan, the sauteuse is great for sauteing, searing, braising, frying, even baking (pasta, cobblers, brownies, etc.). The enameled cast iron pot is oven- and dishwasher-safe and suitable for all cooktops, even induction. All 23 colors are on sale, including new hues like peach (pictured) and sage! 

"The sauteuse has a permanent home on my stovetop," wrote one devotee. "It is a great size — not too large, not too small — perfect for braises, sautés, stews and soups. This is my sixth Le Creuset piece, and I'm thrilled with it, as I am with all of them. Looking forward to cooking — and baking bread! — in the glorious sauteuse for many years."

"Elegant and functional," gushed another. "I'm in love. ... The shape lends itself well to stirring, and food stays hot a long time with the lid on. I often bring the sauteuse right to the table (with a trivet underneath), which makes for an impressive presentation."

These figure-flattering cotton Hanes shorts are a No. 1 bestseller in two categories, and you can pick some up for as little as $9! The 7-inch inseam covers up jiggles and the soft cotton moves with you so you can feel confident and comfortable. Plus, they've got real pockets. In short, reviewers feel good about wearing these.

The popular "unicorn" shorts have nearly 40,000 five-star fans of all shapes and sizes. "Perfect for workouts," wrote one happy shopper. "Not too short, which I like, and they don't ride up on my thick thighs."

Another who owns three pairs shared: "I love how comfortable these shorts are. I'm on the taller side, and the length is perfect since I prefer my shorts not to creep up too high. ... They've been my go-to shorts all summer! The pockets are roomy, which I think is a big plus since women's shorts and pants often have tiny pockets."

Hot deal alert: Grab a No. 1 bestselling cookware set at Amazon for just $60 — that's 50% off and just a dollar off from the lowest price on record.

The look is very elegant, a simplistic cream color. Easy to clean in the dishwasher and by hand. Heating function wowed me also, it is really hard to burn anything."

Reviewers are connecting with their roots and even living relatives thanks to this test. An excerpt from one of the 28,200-plus five-star Amazon reviewers: "I’m part Viking (hello, pillaging tendencies), a dash of Neanderthal (I blame my unibrow) and a sprinkle of unicorn (okay, maybe not, but a girl can dream). The best part? I’ve got roots in 2,750-plus geographic regions. That’s more places than my frequent flyer miles! ... Turns out Aunt Gertrude (the tightrope walker) is alive and well, sipping herbal tea in Tasmania. We’re practically genetic pen pals now. And that distant cousin in Peru? We’re planning a family reunion at Machu Picchu."

The reviewer shared more genetic learnings: "I’m more likely to enjoy cilantro (check), have a fear of clowns (double-check), and be a night owl (triple-check — I’m writing this at 2 a.m.). Oh, and my caffeine metabolism? It’s like a Formula 1 race car—zoom, zoom!"

Grab one on sale for just $37 (was $60) and use it at your desk, in the car, at the piano or even at the big game. It features a nonslip rubber base, a memory foam interior and an easy-wash cover.

One relieved reviewer wrote, "I have chronic low back pain from a slipped disc and injured SI. ... Sitting is by far the most painful position for me. This was the fourth cushion I purchased to help make sitting bearable. One was too soft, one too large and awkward to carry and the last one was too rigid. This is the perfect cushion and I can finally stop looking! It supports and improves my posture while taking pressure off my lower back and SI joint. I carry it everywhere and it has saved me a lot of pain and discomfort. The gel makes it give just enough while still staying firm and it is lightweight with a handle that makes taking it everywhere easy. And the zippered cover is a great feature that my others didn't have."
