Memorial Day weekend is known for big sales on big-ticket items, and while the pandemic has changed how we shop, it hasn't put a stop to the savings.

Appliances

Dyson Ball Animal 2 Upright Vacuum

You can find this capable vacuum marked down at many retailers. The 17-pound Dyson Ball Animal 2 earns impressive scores for carpet cleaning. It aces our bare-floor and pet-hair tests, too. Emissions are clean, so this vacuum won’t spew debris back into the room, although emptying the bin can stir up some dust. It comes with attachments that help you get into tight spaces.

GE Agitator Top-Loader

You won’t find many washers that usually sell for around $500 that are worth considering, but this is in that price range and deserves a look. Cleaning is typical for an agitator, meaning it can handle normal loads but will have a tougher time with heavy stains (pretreating them will help). But where it stands out is speed, taking just 35 minutes to do a load—half the time of some other tested models. Claimed capacity is 4.5 cubic feet.

LG Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator

This LG bottom-freezer is one of the top models in our ratings, offering impeccable performance in almost every test. It comes in a stainless steel finish and features an icemaker, half shelves for organization, spillproof shelving, and digital controls. This model is a bit pricey compared with the others on this list, but if you prioritize performance above all else, it’s worth considering.

LG Front-Loader

Even when this washing machine was $800, it was a good deal given that impressive front-loaders sell for $900 and up. It’s WiFi-connected, allowing you to monitor its progress and receive alerts on your phone. The 4.5-cubic-foot capacity is in line with other front-loaders. But wash time is 105 minutes using the normal wash/heavy-soil setting.

Samsung Single-Oven Gas Range

This Samsung is a feature-packed model with solid performance, making it one of the better deals we’ve seen for this holiday weekend. It has five burners, including an integrated griddle on the cooktop, as well as a convection oven and storage drawer. At $450 off its regular price it’s a good deal, though we have seen this model frequently discounted, usually to about the price you’ll pay this Memorial Day.

Whirlpool Double-Oven Electric Smoothtop Range

This feature-packed double-oven range offers plenty for the money, even when it’s not on sale. Currently, you can get it for at least $150 off the regular price. The range has five burners and offers strong performance in our tests, particularly on top of the stove. It has convection in both ovens, two high-power burners, and a Frozen Bake feature that lets you skip preheating for foods cooked straight from the freezer, such as pizza.

Grills

Monument Grills Gas Grill

Even without the sale, this grill offers a lot of bang for your buck, including features like integrated LED lighting, an infrared searing burner, and a side burner. It performs admirably in our tests, and for $50 or more off the regular price, we think it's a stellar deal.

Weber Gas Grill

It's rare to find any Weber on sale, particularly at the start of the season. This Genesis, which performs admirably in our testing, is being offered for $50 off its regular price. It's light on features compared with more premium Genesis models but has a closed cart and an electronic ignition. And it's compatible with Weber's iGrill 3, a thermometer (sold separately) and app that allow you to monitor the temperature of your grill and food even if you step away for a few minutes.
