Best Gifts for Dad

by Kurt Knutsson

Dad is going to love this Father’s Day because so many newly announced gift ideas are hitting the tech world within days. Here are some easy winners that have been put to the test. All are so good that Dad may just pick any of these up himself!



Set-it and Forget-it digital display and controller make setting grill temps as easy as turning on an oven. The WiFIRE technology lets you monitor your cooks, adjust grill temps and access over 1500 free recipes on the Traeger App. You can even control it with Alexa and an Apple Watch too.

Dad will nail the perfect steak temp with the connected probe and one of the best grilling apps. Traeger is known for their amazing wood fire pellet technology that makes grilling taste amazing and as easy as touching a button to get it started. When you connect the optional Traeger meat probe to the app, get ready for the perfect juicy fired steak or whatever Dad throws on the grill.  Check out Traeger Grills here online.

I can’t locate the $139 Vizio smartcast with +$99 soundbar on Amazon.
Can you post a LINK to where it can be purchased, either online or IN-PERSON??
