It's always happy hour with this "bar," as TCL's Alto 5+ will bring your TV audio to a powerful dimension. It's sad but true that most TVs, even otherwise high-end, awesome (i.e., expensive) sets rarely provide theater-quality sound. That makes a soundbar a fairly de rigueur accessory these days, and you won't find a better merging of quality and value than this one.
The Alto 5+ is Roku-ready and can be connected, in mere seconds, via HDMI, Optical AUX input or Bluetooth. Need a break between mind-blowing movies and TV? Well, it can also bring the tunes via Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, to name just a few.

Of course, the real star here is the sonic mopping function — high-speed brushing and a microfiber pad combine to lift and remove even the ickiest mess on your floors. Gift this to someone and you will, literally, change their life.
"All in one" is right: This Gourmia can not only perform 12 food-prep functions (among them air-fry, roast, bake, dehydrate, even rotisserie!), it works this magic in a 14-quart-capacity area. That means you can cook your main course and any number of sides for an entire brood.
And, of course, it brings the crunch — air-fried goodies like fries, chicken nuggets, and tots will come out decadently crispy, and you'll use 80% less fat than if you'd conventionally fried them. Healthy, easy and delicious!
This wonder normally sells for about $90, so we suggest you grab it fast once the sale starts Monday evening.
