4th July sales are something I look forward to in the summer. It's giving independent woman this Independence Day! And what shows you're capable of adulting more than investing in some small space must-haves for your dorm or apartment?

As an ecommerce editor that specializes in reviewing small kitchen appliances, I've spent all morning searching for the best ways to upgrade our cookspace. From air fryers to blenders, and even a portable ice cream maker (sorry, Ben and Jerry's), there are some serious Fourth of July deals out there (if you know where to look).

I've even included two grills (for indoor and outdoor barbecues) if you're not char-broiling your burgers and hotdogs today. Perhaps next year, you can host? I'm RSVPing RN.

PS: I've handily included all the savings in the deal blocks below, but prices may fluctuate (and products may sell out) — so you'll need to be quick!
