Save yourself time, money and possibly injury by swapping out your old dull knives for a shiny new set of these No. 1 bestsellers — now marked down by nearly 65%! The top-notch stainless steel blades are sturdy, sharp and designed to last, especially since they're safely housed in a wooden block. You'll get everything from a 3-inch paring knife to an 8-inch chef's knife, plus a pair of kitchen scissors in this 15-piece set. Some 12,500 fans at Amazon have given this the highest rating.

In fact, one fan is so confident in this "prized possession" that they predict "I will never need to purchase another set."

"Finally, sharp (and safe) knives," wrote another. "My brother, who is a chef, convinced me to upgrade to Henckels. I must admit I was a bit nervous at first, worrying about cutting myself, but the grip on these knives keeps my hands from slipping. They are extremely sharp and do a great job in the kitchen."

"As food industry professional with a culinary degree, I would definitely recommend this set for home use," shared a third. "These Henckels knives are the best set I've had for use at home ... They are sturdy, easy to hold and cut like a dream!"

"Very pretty and works so well to wear poolside or even within my neighborhood," shared a happy shopper. "It keeps me 'swimsuit modest,' yet I can even travel to my local grocery store and not feel out of place in my neighborhood. ... It looks awesome on me." 

Some wearers haven't even made it to the beach: "Nice enough to wear to church with black pants, then out to dinner," wrote one. "Maybe later I'll put over a swimsuit, but for now, it's really too nice. Could wear a tank top [but] not needed because not overly see-through. Length is good for a large woman like me."

We've spotted a 65% price cut on a rainbow of smooth-cutting Cuisinart knives that'll brighten your kitchen. At $14, they're at the lowest price we can find online! The ceramic coating ensures a clean cut, and the special sheath keeps them sharp. Included are an 8-inch chef's knife, 8-inch slicing knife, 7-inch santoku knife, 5.5-inch serrated utility knife, 3.5-inch paring knife and five matching blade guards.

One fan who came back for more wrote, "These knives are very lightweight and fit comfortably [in my] small hand. I have also taken the ugly knife block off the counter and replaced it with the complete set. With each having its own sleeve, storage in the drawer is an absolute space-saver. Do not let the whimsical fun colors fool you."

Make a splash in a sassy suit that you'll actually want to put on. This flirty one-piece features several slimming details. The midsection gets a little help from well-placed ruching and a tummy-control mesh panel, and the pretty ruffle top is supportive, fans say. There's full coverage in the rear too. 

"Great fit and elegant," wrote one of the more than 17,000 five-star fans. "I was so surprised at the fit and the cinching around the waistline making a flattering look. The one-shoulder look was also very cute and did not slide down when in the water. I felt secure, unlike some swimwear that you tug on to make sure it stays up."

"Run don't walk to buy this if you are over 50, have belly bulge and want to feel good in a swimsuit," urged another.

"I have already washed them in my machine and dried out in the sun and they look great. I wear them on long walks (4 miles at a time) and they support my feet as well as a running shoe. I plan to use them for a trip to Italy in the fall. P.S.: I have a wider foot and the regular size fits just fine!"

A second shared: "I've been an active hairdresser for over 35 years and always looking for a good shoe at a good price. These are fabulous."

Nobody wants to jump into a dirty pool (nope nope nope), but cleaning it week after week can be tedious. We've found a pool-cleaning robovac that's 50% off and will keep your concrete pond clean all season long. Drop it in and it'll chug along for up to 90 minutes on a single charge.

The 8,900 five-star reviewers can attest that it works swimmingly. One fan raved, "It effectively picks up fine leaves, sand, dirt and other debris, saving me the trouble of manually cleaning the pool. Plus, the self-parking feature is a genius addition. When the battery is low or after a cleaning cycle, the cleaner stops near the pool wall, making retrieval super easy with the included hook."

Fellow adventurers, I've tested Nemo's ultralight, water-repellant bag and the design is pure genius — and right now it's on rare sale at REI ($45 off!). With the snap of a buckle and a flick of the handle, this triple threat transforms from a duffle to a tote to a backpack. I've taken it on a camping trip, a beach outing, urban excursions, a flight, even a grocery run. Made of recycled nylon, it weighs in at just over 3 pounds, yet it's mighty enough to haul camping gear, food, water jugs and more — and it never seems to get full. Small items stay within reach thanks to the handy zippered pockets, and the included carrying case makes a handy packing cube. Snap one up as a primo Father's Day gift or a space-saving replacement for those mediocre bags crowding your closet. 

"I must tell you, this 420D material is no joke" shared a convert. "I love its convertible expansion feature and it is just an overall great duffel for ski gear and travel."

Another wrote: "I bought this for my husband to use as a 'boat tote' for his fishing boat. It's small enough to easily carry around, but big enough to carry the lunch cooler, drinks, our extra layers... I love all the different carry options and how it opens up nice and wide."
