You don't always need voice control, but you know when you absolutely do? When your hands are full, you've got three different things you're trying to do, and you've got a limited time to accomplish it all. I've definitely found myself in the kitchen warming up a baby bottle, washing dishes, and preparing dinner all while trying to keep my son from climbing up my leg. Being able to eliminate a simple task by saying "Alexa, microwave for two minutes" just makes the process that much easier to accomplish.

Well, right now you can get the AmazonBasics Alexa-enabled 700W microwave on sale for $49.99 when you use the code MNATIONS10. This microwave regularly sells for $60, and the only time it dropped from that price was a sale we shared back in January. That deal only lasted for one day. This sale lasts until June 22 at midnight.

Use the microwave to defrost veggies, pop popcorn, cook potatoes, reheat rice, and mostly eat takeout leftovers as is tradition. Combine it with an Alexa-enabled device like the Echo Dot to activate quick-cook voice presets and ask Alexa to start microwaving. It also has its own Alexa button that eliminates the need to even say "Alexa" or "microwave" to accomplish your task. The microwave has 10 power levels, a kitchen timer, a child lock, a turntable, and a compact size to save counter space. You can also combine it with Amazon's Dash Replenishment program to automatically re-order popcorn when you run low and save 10% on those orders. Users give it 4.1 stars based on 1,270 reviews.
