Watch this space for deals on kitchen appliances, cookware, and more
Prime Day, Amazon’s annual sale for Amazon Prime members, is here. This year, the two-day event kicks off today, June 21, and wraps up on the 22nd. And for those who have been in the market for the kinds of household goods Amazon reliably stocks — e.g. blenders, air fryers, and utilitarian cookware — now’s the time to consider what might be worth adding to cart.
To help in that endeavor, we’ve rounded up the best kitchen deals from the go-to brands in their categories. Expert Prime Day shoppers will know about lightning deals, which only last for a few hours. But, take heart, these will all be available all day long. There are even deals to be had after the close of the two-day sale, so keep checking back. Happy shopping.
The Jack-of-all-trades Cuisinart Air Fryer Convection Toaster Oven is $125 today. It’s the same one that aided Strategist writer Lauren Ro in her cooking endeavors through quarantine.
If you want to get started making your own ice cream this summer, you can’t go wrong with the basic version from Cusinart, and it’s 30 percent off today. Pastry chef Jeanine Lamadieu called it the “the best home product I’ve seen in a long time and an awesome investment” in this starter kit for everything you need to make ice cream at home.
Cuisinart also has you covered if you’re looking to completely overhaul your pots and pans. The 10 piece, stainless steel cookware set is 45 percent off, and I’d say they’re worth the investment — I’ve held on to my stainless steel Cuisinart stock pot since my college roommate left it behind in 2011 and have never felt the need to replace it.
Calphalon is also offering complete cookware sets at a steep discount. The 11-piece set of pots and pans is a full 50 percent off, while a 10-piece nonstick bakeware set, which includes cookie sheets, cake pans, a muffin tin and more, is 53 percent off.
Those running lower on cabinet space might consider this 12-inch, nonstick wok, usually close to $100 and now less than $70.
An espresso machine seems like a prime Prime Day purchase, and this one, complete with steam wand, is nearly 50 percent off, bringing it down to less than $120, which is a good deal for an espresso machine.
As in years past, the “it” appliance of the 2010s is on sale for Prime Day. The Instant Pot Duo Plus, in the six quart size, is normally $120, but is selling for $55 today.
The brand also sells the “it” appliance that supplanted the slow cooker, in popular estimation if not in utility. The Instant Vortex Plus, an air fryer, broiler, roaster, and dehydrator, is available at a lesser discount of 35 percent.
The brand’s compact kitchen system, which blends, chops, mixes frozen drinks, and more is $50 off for Prime Day.
Like other kitchen appliance brands, Ninja has a pressure cooker in its roster, and it’s 40 percent off today.
If sparkling water sounds refreshing, consider a Sodastream. It’s only $50 today in this pleasing icy blue shade, rose gold, white, or black.
Those starter Sodastreams include just one Co2 cylinder and bottle, but Sodastream bundles are also on sale if you’d like to upgrade to a system with three bottles, two Co2 cylinders, and two bottles of flavor drops.
